I think I've figured out why Jews are constantly getting slaughtered
They seem to have difficulty evaluating relative threats.
After more than a thousand Israeli civilians were massacred by Palestinians in six hours on Oct. 7, followed by blacks and browns and white liberals in the U.S. and Europe erupting in joy at the bloodbath and expressing their shared desire to “kill the Jews,” The New York Times is worrying about …
The New York Times today:
In a long and data-filled analysis posted on Substack on Oct. 29, “Hiding in Plain Sight: The Sources of MAGA Madness,” Michael Podhorzer, a former political director of the A.F.L.-C.I.O., argued that the election of Johnson reflects the success of the Christian right in a long-term struggle to wrest control from traditional Republican elites, in battles fought out in Republican primary elections.
THAT’S what Michael Pohorzer is worrying about 3 weeks after Oct. 7.
RED ALERT!!! An evangelical Christian has just been voted House Speaker!!!
But this? No problem!
Asked whether they agree or disagree with the statement “immigrants are invading our country and replacing our cultural and ethnic background,” 81 percent of Christian nationalist adherents agreed.
Yeah, these Christians are NUTS! Mass 3rd world immigration has been GREAT - especially for Jews!
THE U.S. CONGRESS:
On Oct. 27, my Times colleagues Annie Karni, Ruth Graham and Steve Eder reported on a 2006 essay that Johnson posted on Townhall, a right-wing website.
In it, they wrote, “Johnson railed against ‘the earnest advocates of atheism and sexual perversion’. He also decried ‘This sprawling alliance of anti-God enthusiasts’ that ‘has proven frighteningly efficient at remaking America in their own brutal, dehumanizing image.’”
“In the space of a few decades," Johnson added, “they have managed to entrench abortion and homosexual behavior, objectify children into sexual objects, criminalize Christianity in the popular culture, and promote guilt and self-doubt as the foremost qualities of our national character.”
THAT frightens the Times. But this doesn’t:
Seriously. What on Earth?
