Yeah, because Africa doesn’t have a long history of antisemitism. It’s only the Middle East…

As it turns out, Frazier Glenn Miller, the former Ku Klux Klan leader who allegedly shot three people to death at two Kansas Jewish centers on Sunday, was sort of a popular guy. In fact, the mayor of Marionville, Mo., near where Miller used to live, considers the white supremacist a friend.

"He was always nice and friendly and respectful of elder people, you know, he respected his elders greatly," Dan Clevenger told KSPR, laughing. “As long as they were the same color as him. [He was] very fair and honest and never had a bit of problems out of him.”

Clevenger later added that he “kind of agreed with [Miller] on somethings but I don’t like to express that too much.”

What kind of things do the two agree about, you ask? Clevenger elaborated to KSPR.

"There some things that are going on in this country that are destroying us. We’ve got a false economy and it’s, some of those corporations are run by Jews because the names are there," he said. "The fact that the Federal Reserve prints up phony money and freely hands it out, I think that’s completely wrong. The people that run the Federal Reserve, they’re Jewish."

Oh.

This is not the first time Clevenger has publicly supported Miller’s anti-semitism. KSPR unearthed a letter he sent nearly ten years ago to the Aurora Advertiser, in which the mayor endorsed Miller.

"I am a friend of Frazier Miller helping to spread his warnings," wrote Clevenger. "The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State’s workforce."

The letter continued.

"Made a few Jews rich by killin’ us off."

He also spoke of the “Jew-run government backed banking industry turned the U.S into the world’s largest debtor nation.”

Clevenger, who also owns a local repair shop, was just elected mayor of Marionville last Tuesday. It seems unlikely he’ll hold the position for much longer.

I’ll believe it when I see it.

Anonymous asked: one of my classes is doing a section on the culture of ancient israel and on ancient judaism, and as the teacher is a white christian and all of our texts are written by christians, the class is a disaster. i am the only jewish kid in the room, and every time i try to offer commentary, the teacher interrupts. and now we have to write an essay on what we have learned, and i have been told i am not allowed to consult any sources beyond what we have been given in the class. i am afraid of what this

is going to teach the rest of the students, that they are going to end up with a really narrow view of our history and religion. i am not too well educated on the matter, and as a student i do not have anything near the authority needed to talk to the teacher or to the school about this…

Unfortunately, this kind of bullshit is standard fare for minorities, and Jews are no exception to this rule.

Is there a higher-up you can contact? A principal, dean, head of the department? If not, going against this becomes that much more difficult. You can mobilize the local community, including the local Jewish community,  against what’s going on. If you don’t have records (recorded, email, or otherwise) of what’s been happening, start making them, because you need that evidence if you want to prove that she is purposely propagating false information. Petitions can be a good way to get people aware of an issue fast, but take care you have all your t’s crossed and i’s dotted - you need to have a concrete goal in mind, and your evidence clearly lined up.

Also, for your own sake, it’s good to learn more about your own people. It’s good to have the knowledge to combat others’ ignorance, but it’s also good to know your own heritage, because it belongs to you.

Good luck!

Seconded. Bring copies of the text to your local Rabbi and see what he can do to help. Chances are he would know who to contact for help locally within the community.

And seriously don’t just give it a pass. I did that under similar circumstances in the long - long ago and still regret it.

Want a “fun” fact in the wake of the JCC shooting in Kansas?

Jews make up 62% of religious hate crime victims in the United States, despite being 2.1% of the population. 

This particular link, by the by, is an excellent source on who is targeted by hate crime in the US. 

Note: Although the government statistics count antisemitic crimes as “religious” hate crimes, a substantial portion of antisemitic violence is racially or ethnically motivated.

Look how fucking dead antisemitism is uguize

Like many Jews with a social justice bent, I had heard the story of how it came to be that we put an orange on the Seder plate. Supposedly a woman had been speaking on the subject of women Rabbis and a man stood up from the audience to proclaim, “A woman belongs on the bimah…

And to no ones surprise, this Kansas City shooting are not as big of a deal as any other shooting.

Because it’s not a fucking tragedy when it’s a hate crime.

Only when white goyim are targets.

Yeah, this one’s been pretty quiet, because fuck if we’ll ever admit we have an antisemitism problem.

Yeah, because Africa doesn’t have a long history of antisemitism. It’s only the Middle East and Europe that has that.

Seriously gentiles, if you want Israel to be elsewhere, go ahead and make it happen. Put together the funding, sort out the logistics, and get us a new country. We won’t hold our breath.

They should all give us money to make our new homeland in space.
