Anti-Trump feminist activist Amy Siskind attacked because she’s Jewish

How being kosher can be seen as impure

Amy Siskind was a Wall Street executive turned feminist activist when US President Trump accessed to the throne. At first, she was in shock and after two weeks she decided to begin chronicling his assault on US decency and democracy. Her weekly reports, already for one-and-a-half years, take her some 30 hours each – charitable work, aimed at reminding us that his craziness is just that – in the hope that one day we’ll be able to return to normalcy. But then Siskind became a target herself. Not of the Trump camp or neo-Nazis. Rather, of the ultra-Left. What happened?

Mistakes

Siskind puts her weekly evaluations in a wider framework. However, she is more at home in anti-Sexism work than in the broader scene of politics. So, she made mistakes. At first, she is mercilessly assaulted for them. But that she made mistakes turns out to be just a lame excuse.

Siskind is characterized as a fake, not really against Trump, a closet Republican! Because in the past she has supported Republican con artist Sarah Palin for her “unique talent to foster cooperation.” From the point of view of a bipartisan activism for women’s rights, that’s understandable. From a political point of view, it’s naive. But to then call her a stealth Republican is of course completely baseless.

So what is the real reason for the deep aversion of her? A new Jewish Telegraph Agency report that now spread the word of slander about her does not give a clue. Except for those who can read between the lines.

Some Dumb White Lady

Look at this twitter message:

American comedian and actress Kathy Griffin calls Siskind “some dumb white lady.” Please note that Griffin herself is some white lady. She became word-(in)famous for her photo shoot with a fake bloody severed Trump head for which she later apologized, which apology she later retracted twice. There is no doubt that she hates the 45th US President.

So, Griffin hates Trump. But why does she hate Trump critic Siskind? Not because she is white or a lady. Or even dumb. The pink elephant is so large in the room that hardly any oxygen is left for anyone else.

Let me give you one more hint. Two years ago, Siskind had the gall to condemn Black Lives Matter after it accused Israel of genocide.

Anti-Jewish

Siskind is Jewish. Maybe not religiously (I don’t know) but her parents are both Jews. And Jews are seen by intersectionalists as not oppressed but rather as privileged. (For leftists who got trapped in this nonsense, see my recent post here.) The only way for Jews to redeem themselves and be “kosher” in the fight against “all” oppressions is by being anti-Zionists and by criticizing other Jews who are held hostage by the Right.

And that’s Siskind’s “problem.” She’s not a self-hating anti-Zionist Jew. She doesn’t even advocate herself as Jewish. She calls herself: “Advocate for women’s & LGBT rights, & equality. Mom. Gay. Dog lover. Jock. Nerd.”

“Closeted Republican” is code for closeted Jew – in the sense of: a secret imperialist, racist, mass murderer, oppressor, big capitalist. Siskind is a very fine and valuable activist, feminist and anti-Trump campaigner. She’s only trashed because of Jews hatred. And as I’ve noticed of all hard-core anti-Semites: they all lie (in order to defend their bigotry and stay hateful against Jews), so they won’t tell you the real reason. How much stronger would the Left be when it cleanses itself from animosity against Jews!

Sad. And dumb. To attack the best of activists.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo and Rav Zev Leff. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Many people can't understand or like him because he has such a wide vision that he never fits any specialist's box. But that exactly what others love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
