IS SELF-DEFENSE BIGOTRY? | 2002-09-26
Bigotry is defined as wanting to harm other people on the basis of characteristics like their race or national origins.
On December 8, 1941, the Congress of the United States adopted one of the most bigoted statements in human history. It declared war on Japan. Under international law that declaration meant that every American became a mortal enemy, individually, of every person in the Empire of Japan.
If you forget a minor incident that occurred at Pearl Harbor in December 7, 1941, the only explanation for the American Congress' action was pure racial and national bigotry and nothing else.
Franz Boas spent his life teaching - at public expense - that white gentiles were the common enemies of Jews and all other minorities. As another Jewish gentleman, Noel Ignatiev, who teaches at Harvard, put it, "The goal of abolishing the white race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white supremacists."
You can state this as honestly as Ignatiev does, or you can say, "I'm Jewish, so of course I'm against racism." Since being against racism now means that every white majority country must become "multiracial and multicultural," either way you say it is pure genocide.
That is a more vicious declaration of hatred than the attack on Pearl Harbor was.
Am I anti-semitic? If a semite considers the very existence of my race to be anti-semitic, you 're
damned right I am as anti THAT semite as it is humanly possible to be.
