Hatred, Anti-Semitism and Identity

“When hate is rational, based on some fear or disapproval that—justified or not—has some logic to it, then it can be reasoned with and brought to an end.
But unconditional, irrational hatred cannot be reasoned with. There is nothing one can do to address it and end it. It persists.” [Rabbi Jonathan Sacks]

For an in depth study, “The Psychology of Hatred” by Jose I. Navarro of the Department of Psychology, University of Cadiz, Spain has stood the test of time. As an introduction, he defines hatred as a strong negative feeling against any object of their hatred as bad, immoral dangerous, or all of this together [Staub, 2003]. A violent act is also an act of hatred, when it is based on an intense, persistent and negative perception of the other, who we intend and desire to hurt, destroy, or even make suffer.

Prejudice, group hostility and hatred are everyday experiences. They are expressed in words and in deeds. Not every act of violence arises out of hate. Violence can be instrumental; sometimes we act violently against others to achieve a goal. Or it may be defensive, or hostile [for example when someone is frustrated or attacked, and reacts violently.

In this essay Navarro describes the development of hatred, and then explains relations between hatred, violence and anger: Finally how cognition establishes connection with emotions like the hate is explained. The paper evolves under 8 sub topics:

[a] Empathy and violence.
[b] Hatred development.
[c] Hatred as emotion.
[d] The role of cognition in hatred.
[e] A cognitive model.
[f] Beyond Sternberg’s theory of hate.
[g] Hate and violence.
[h] The irony of the solutions.

In his final analysis he addresses the vulnerability’s family and personal factors that care for uncontrolled development, what social events trigger violent behavior such as xenophobia, fanaticism ideology, dangerous social space. Finally, there is a productive research about resilience, as a way to get over personal risks.

Beyond theory, Frank Aquilla addressed “Democrat Hypocrisy and Hatred” on December 24, 2019. The degree of hatred directed against President Donald Trump is surely unprecedented in world history. Aquilla’s chronological commentary reads like a fast paced novel. He refers to “the Democrats and Deep State” efforts to ensure that Trump was not elected, even setting up an “insurance policy” in case he was. They had relied on impeachment and when that failed, they dreamed up a Trump -Russian collusion. Nancy Pelosi admitted they had been working on impeachment for “two and a half years”, possibly more.

2016, Jerry Nadler; “We cannot wait four years to vote Mr. Trump out of office. We must keep out eyes on two important goals: depressing Trump’s public support and dividing Congressional GOP from him and from each other.”
2016, Maxine Waters; yelling “impeachment” and in 2017; “When I get through with Donald Trump, he’s going to wish he had been impeached”.

2017, Al Green introduced Articles of Impeachment “for no sane reason except his hatred of President Trump, admitting in 2019, “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get reelected.” Green confessed to deception in the form of using a fake photo of a migrant child in the impeachment debate.

2018, Rashid Tlaib stated;” We’re going to impeach the mother—-er” during her election victory to Congress.

These expressions of Democrat hatred were intended to undermine millions of voters. The Deep State, the Washington Swamp, and the Democrats all conspired, making extensive use of the media to negate an election, failing impeachment. To demonstrate the hypocrisy of the Democrats, Aquilla, using their own words quotes from the 1998 impeachment of President Bill Clinton for real crimes.

Nancy Pelosi; “—–majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance.”
Adam Schiff; “I think impeachment, for most people in this district, is only the most graphic illustrations of an incumbent who has put the national partisan ideological fights ahead of representing his district.”
Jerry Nadler; “—it is a coup d’etat when you impeach a president for allegations that even if true—when you seek to upset an election, to overturn an election without broad consensus of the necessity for doing so against—-the American people.” “This partisan coup d’etat will go down in infamy in the history of this nation.”
Maxine Waters; “—impeachment was a ‘coup d’etat’ because they are trying to do with this impeachment what they were unable to do at the ballot box.” She called on Congress to “stop the madness” and “to get on with the work of the American people.”
Chuck Schumer complained that impeachment was not bipartisan and stated, ‘We are routinely using criminal accusations and scandal to win the political battles and ideological differences we cannot settle at the ballot box.”

Frank Aquilla found a further quote from Jerry Nadler to be best of all. “They have been persecuting the third president since the day he took office because they cannot abide the thought that we have a president fighting for us.” In this, he sees it to be exactly what the Democrats have done to President Trump and the reason for their hypocrisy and hatred of President Trump and those who voted for him.

Upon reflection, it now appears that this obsessive hatred against Trump commenced with former president Obama. “Netanyahu refused to be politically correct, while Obama was PC incarnate——one of Obama’s first acts on entering the White House, was to replace a bust of Winston Churchill, America’s unflagging WW11 ally, with that of Abraham Lincoln. Netanyahu reentered the Prime Minister’s Office and promptly hung Churchill’s photograph on the wall behind his desk.” [Michael Oren, “Ally -P53”]

“Obama’s plot against America” by Jim Cegielski was published as recently as May 15, 2020. It provides an intimate insight into the beginnings of today’s’ Dead State. As observed by Cegielski, ” A sharp move toward socialism with Obama care and attacks on Israel, refusing to call out radical Islamic terrorism, as well as the opening of our borders should have tipped us off that we may have put an enemy of the state at the helm of our country.”

For those of us who had witnessed Obama’s infamous speech in Cairo on June 4, 2009, the tell-tale signs of what to anticipate were already apparent. Consider the following quotes:
“As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and the fall of dusk.” —–” It is easy to point fingers – for Palestinians to point to the displacement brought by Israel’s founding, and for Israelis to point to the constant hostility and attacks throughout its history from within its borders as well as beyond.

——-and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied. On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland.”

For Obama as for many others, moral equivalence, serves conveniently. And “Islam 1st” preceded “America 1st”.
Continuing with Cegielski’s report————— Last week, transcripts from the House Intelligence Committee revealed that top Obama officials acknowledged that there was no evidence of collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign long before millions of taxpayer dollars were spent on the Robert Mueller investigation.

Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Director James Comey, National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI agent Andrew McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and the most despicable human being on planet earth, Rep. Adam Schiff of California; absolutely knew there was no evidence of collusion long before the Mueller investigation. And yet they made the country suffer though it anyway, simply to harm the president
.
” Not only that, people like Schiff and Clapper were going on left-wing propaganda networks like CNN and MSNBC and lying through their teeth by telling their viewers that they had seen evidence of collusion.” For the past 4 years, the Democrats have done absolutely nothing for the country, except to attempt the overthrow of the president.

If successful in November, without Trump and Bill Barr at the DOJ, the Deep State and Swamp will return with a vengeance, and we shall observe the end of America as we knew it. Instead of all the benefits which have accrued under President Trump’s watch, we shall be confronted with ongoing sanctuary cities, late-term abortions, open borders, socialism, the idiotic Green New Deal, high taxes, bureaucracy and transgender bathrooms.

What is it about Trump that elicits such hatred? One can understand that he is uncouth, crude, uncivil at times, lacking refinement and his statements could be more elegant, But does this demand such vile extreme hatred? And to suggest that he is a racist is to be awfully wrong. Among blacks, we find secretary Dr.Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Alveda King, Pastor Darrel Scott, Sen Tim Scott, Candace Owens, Andre Berto and Jack Brewer, to mention but a few

As a bottom line, Trump’s presence is almost divinely ordered as a significant size of the country’s populous appears ready to embrace socialism and even bordering communism.

Is there a voice more dignified than that of the superior intellectual Victor Davis Hanson, who has authored a NY Times best seller, “The Case for Trump”. He advises people to take a historical perspective – and not the media narrative – in evaluating the activities and policy outcomes of the Trump Administration on key issues such as judicial appointments, energy, economic growth, jobs, and foreign policy.

Shortly prior to his death, Charles Krauthammer posted an Op-Ed in the New York Post highly critical of Obama. The conclusion reads as follows: “If Barak Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

Three times Israeli Defense Minister, Moshe Arens once said: “Socialism is mainly a bankrupt ideology.” A useful AEI paper which substantiates Arens’ assertion is “Why socialism always fails” by Mark J.Perry – March 22, 2016. His conclusion, the main difference between capitalism and socialism is this: capitalism works.

There was a time when Sweden was looked upon as a country which had adopted socialism and proved it as a success. Not so says Perry, and discusses “Sweden ain’t socialist” [AEI Feb 25,2020], in which he references 2 videos by Johan Norberg:
[a] Sweden: Socialism or free Markets? [1.5 mts].
[b] Sweden: Lessons for America [60 mts].

In its 100 year history, socialism and Marxism have caused the deaths of over 100 million human souls, including a large number of Jews. The Even higher price paid by our people was due to forced conversions and no-choice assimilation.

Which brings us to that excuse for a Jew, Bernie Sanders, whose Judaism is based on his parents having been Holocaust survivors and his short stay at an extremist socialist kibbutz. That he hates Trump and is willing to embrace the Democrat party Muslim anti-Semites, who have been raised on hatred, speaks volumes. He suffers from a Jewish plague described by the eminent Harvard physician Dr.Kenneth Levin as “The Psychology of Jews who embrace their enemies.” As such he falls within the category of individuals given to the “psyche of the abused.”

Regrettably, Sanders lack of historical knowledge prevents him from explaining to “The Squad” that Israelis did not steal any land from their forbears. Nor can they gain any satisfaction from a heritage which includes the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who had befriended Hitler.
