It been accepted for a while that the New Left is the Old Right. However, we have been quick to learn that the Alt Right is the New Jew.
The Jewish Daily Forward reports this week that supporters of the far-right Jewish Defense League (JDL) are sympathetic to the white nationalism of the “alt-right” — and have “no plans to push back against an anti-Jewish march planned in Whitefish, Montana by a neo-Nazi”.
JDL leader Jonathan Stern told Haaretz that “alt-right” figurehead Richard Spencer was “a white nationalist who stands up for white people and there is nothing wrong with that.” Stern seems to accept that if Jews are entitled to celebrate their Jewishness (as the daily Forward has been doing for a century), White people are also entitled to celebrate their Whiteness.
The Forward reports that In Whitefish, Spencer’s hometown, “liberal activists, including Jews, have organized for years against white supremacists… Spencer’s family owns property here and some locals urged Spencer’s mother to sell her property and denounce her son’s brand of white supremacy.”
The JDL’s leader doesn’t agree with these tactics. He puts the blame on Jewish organisations. “So they provoked this guy, and now there is all this response, by white people, and white supremacists, and neo Nazis, and they want to march in the Jewish Community...If Jews are being targeted, we need to stand up for them. But if this is a response to a liberal organization, it’s a different story,” Stern said. “They started it, let them deal with the consequences.”
For many years, most of the American Jewish elite identified itself with Liberal and progressive politics. This is clearly changing now. Andrew Breitbart and his breitbart.com were the first birds to shift to the Right. Adelson was quick to gamble on Trump (once he won the primaries) and now the JDL, that was formed to fight ‘Nazis,’ actually accepts that the old Nazis may as well be their new allies. I wonder how long will it take before we find out that Soros starts to fund ultra nationalist organisations through his new CSI (the Closed Society Interlude).
