The World Never Cared About the Jews. Why Do They Pretend to Now?

I am constantly fascinated by the state of the world right now. As the world is being ravaged by a virus, civil unrest over “racism”, and an election in the US in 98 days, people seem to be venting all of their problems on Twitter. Recently, Nick Cannon made some Anti-Semitic (and Anti-White) comments on his podcast. While Nick was reprimanded over his anti Semitic comments, and lost one of his positions on television, the reaction PALED in comparison to how Twitter reacted over the Marxist BLM movement.

This poses the question: Why does the court of public opinion seem to care about some minorities, and not all of them?

The answer is quite simple. It’s about making people feel better about themselves. For example, the whole idea of “equity” is just a concept used by White millennials to feel better about themselves. If they really cared about “equity”, progress would have been made ages ago.

African Americans, Latinos, women, homosexuals, and those with gender dysphoria are treasured by the Left. Why? Because the Left deems these groups to be vulnerable, which is xenophobic in of itself. By pretending to advocate for these groups, White millennials, and anyone else who falls for this ruse, for that matter, use these people for their own social gain. Its basically brownie points on the “Who is the Least Racist” game show, and the rules are constantly changing.

Now, let’s get to the point, why does the Left not seem to care about the Jews, even when Twitter showed their hashtags after the Pittsburgh shooting, Poway, etc? Its simple, we do not matter to them, and are not a pawn in their demented game of chess. According to the FBI, Jews are the most targeted minority in America, yet it appears that the least amount of social change is happening to stop it.

This poses a paradox. If humanity truly cared about human rights, the rule of law, and equality as much as they say they do. People would be just as vigilant, just as caring, and advocating for us. Yet, what do we see? Time and time again, the Jewish people are persecuted, and our only defenders our ourselves.

Now, before the comments say: “What about the righteous among the nations during the Shoah?”, allow me to explain. A lot of the righteous among the nations helped the Jews for their own benefit. They were either being persecuted as well by the Nazis, or had ulterior motives.

This example perfectly explains my point from earlier. People only do things if it benefits them, or if it makes them feel better about themselves. It is human nature, after all, to nurture the psyche.

To conclude, let’s go back to where we started. Nick Cannon made some extremely anti Semitic comments recently, and got what he deserved. One could argue that this is a new trend that counters my whole argument. What I see is people pretending to care about the Jews for 5 minutes, until the next Black man is killed, and they can start destroying cities again.

Andy Warhol once said that everybody gets their 15 minutes of fame. While he originally intended that to be true for the Arts, I use this precept in political science. For 5 minutes, people care about gays and transgenders, for another 5 minutes, about Black people, and then, 5 minutes for women. Jews get one second.

We are the least of their concerns, since we are not minority enough for them, and cannot be used as a token for their own satisfaction.

History has shown us that our only allies can be ourselves, and that it is very hard, if not impossible, for people to have the audacity to say:
