Though most on the alt-right have long considered jews to be non-white—if not by blood then by culture, and if not by either, by the history of elite jews using their influence to undermine goy society—one rabbi has come out in support of American jews renouncing their status as 'White Americans.'
Unlikely to agree on much else, both the alt-right and ((((Gil Steinlauf)))) are at odds with the mainstream perception of American jews, who are mostly ashkenazim, as White. Steinlauf notes this was a status they did not always have, but his reasoning behind why he rejects it and is encouraging other jews to do the same is remarkably useful. The article is titled (and subtitled):
Jews in America struggled for decades to become white. Now we must give up whiteness to fight racism. Let's teach our children that we are, in fact, not white, but simply Jewish.
Right off the bat we have two important affirmations:
- Whiteness is a status to jews and rather than an identity.
- Fighting racism requires giving up "whiteness."
- You can still keep your jewish identity; it's the White one that has to be attacked.
And in Shlomo's own words:
The brilliance of being Jewish, though, is that we stubbornly refuse to fit into any social construct of power or oppression. We are simply Ivri’im, people from “somewhere else,” people who struggle with God and justice, who demand that the rest of the world does, too, and see every human life as sacred because we are all in the image of God. And the truth is, we have never belonged to one race alone. The Torah tells us that we left Egypt with the “erev rav,” with a mixed multitude of peoples. Around the world there are Jews of color, Asian Jews, Jews of all kinds. The idea that Jews are white is not only ridiculous, it’s offensive to who we really are! Yes, societies like America come along sometimes and give us privileges and powerful labels like “white.” In America’s racist social construct, Jews are very much white people, but we must never again think of ourselves that way — it’s time for us to opt out of that racist paradigm, because we are Jews.
Being jewish is clearly something important and an identity worthy of celebration and praise. Being White is racism, so that's bad. You need to stop supporting "whiteness" to fight racism. In fact, it's offensive to be labelled as White. Oy vey! Of course, jews will still be jews even if they stop identifying as White. Their identity and people will survive. This is such a clear cut case of the my-tribal-identity-is-good-and-yours-is-bad trope employed by jewish authors against goyim—the dual morality of in-group versus out-group—that it speaks for itself without further comment.
Imagine what we and our children could be like if we associate our Jewishness with an essential statement against racism and discrimination. Even though we and our children have benefited from the best schools and jobs and housing that whiteness affords, we can be the ones to challenge the system from within. We can be the ones who change business practices, housing codes, policing, correctional facilities, social policies, unequal schools — motivated by our values and our Jewish historical experience. Indeed, so many progressive leaders in this country have been Jews (including some Jewish founders of the NAACP), motivated exactly by this vision. But so many more of us need to own our real power, which is not our whiteness, but our Jewishness, our Torah and our tradition that motivates us to remember the stranger, for we were strangers in Egypt; that calls on us to lift up the cause of all those who are oppressed.
I don't know about you, but my sides have left the planet. Rabbi, are you implying that jews don't already use their power and influence to combat "racism" in the United States, with racism of course meaning the existence of a White majority and White group interests? What was that about ((((business codes)))) and ((((housing practices))))... And to define jewish identity as an "essential statement against racism and discrimination," aka anti-racism, is simply to be anti-white, because prosecuting racism is never about promoting racial harmony but simply hunting down ethnocentric White people and practices. Meanwhile, as is obvious from this article, tribal behavior among jews is not only totally fine but also good for social justice. It is only pathological for White people to display tribal loyalties.
In other words, he's saying that to be jewish is to be consciously against the White majority, which has almost always been the case throughout our unfortunate histories and is why jews remain unassimilated. It is why they reject Christianity; it is why they consume kosher food; it is why they commemorate the jewish Maccabean Revolt against the (Hellenic) Seleucid empire almost two thousand years ago every year during Hanukkah; it is why Israel exists as a country; it is why they promote cultural marxism—it is why jews are jews.
He's literally saying "jewishness" is about siding with the "oppressed." Under the jewish framework of cultural marxism, this means deconstructing White people, because all the building blocks of Western civilization are inherently bad and we need to make sure ethno-nationalism for Whites/Europeans never happens again, since that would be bad for jews, who as rabbi tells us, are not White. True progress is a world without any White-majority countries, where jews are conveniently no longer identified as White by the societies they're living in. You'd like that, Shlomo, wouldn't you? You'd love for the schvartzers to think that you think that #BlackLivesMatter. You'd love for the Latinos coming in to replace Whites to think you're a fellow minority rather than another ethnic variety of gringo. You'd love for Asians to sort you apart from Anglos.
I don't think it's going to work. I think the people being brought in thanks to your immigration lobbying are going to see you as oppressors. They vote left and you're the richest group per capita in this country. 'Jewish privilege' is already a thing being floated in academic circles. The only other option is to be completely submissive to their demands, like Bernie Sanders is. So strategically, ditching the ability to pass as White among the White majority makes sense, given that the United States is projected to lose its White majority and the zeitgeist is increasingly anti-White. Why join the losing team?
This article is spectacular from a metapolitical standpoint, as an American jewish leader is on record being as anti-white and unintentionally tribal as possible. He is a rabbi and therefore a leader of the American jewish community, so his opinion is important. I think it's a great article and I hope a lot of cuckservatives read it and feel something. To boil it down, the main takeaways are essentially:
- Jews don't see themselves as White.
- Jews believe in fighting racism, which is a proxy for fighting against White people.
- The proxy is actually really shitty and transparent since they're calling it "whiteness."
- Jewish culture is inherently leftist on issues pertaining to its hosts and conservative pertaining to itself.
- Wake the fuck up, goyim.
- Go read TOO and the Daily Stormer.
