Trump launches global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality?

It’s the Jewish month of Adar and sometimes it’s hard to figure out which of the news is for real and which a Purim joke. But this announcement that Trump will spearhead  a crusade to legalize homosexuality worldwide seems for real. It leaves me stunned.

I’m not referring to his attacks on transgender troops. Or his disdain for marital fidelity. But it is hard to see some people upset all the rules.

Jews, shortly followed by homosexuals, have been the canary in the coalmine for a long time. They’re attacked first, after which all the other minorities and women follow.

  • Yet, Putin hates gays and feminists but he loves Jews.
  • Trump’s political and pre-political history is filled with racism accusations and he doesn’t seem particularly supportive of other minorities (handicapped), but he loves Jews. And now also gays. While his VP is a gay hater.
  • Evangelicals love Jews but hate gays. I’m not saying all of them do — as a group they do. And can’t understand why Jews don’t hate them.

Go figure.

Bernie Sanders supports every oppressed group under the sun except Jews. “How can Israel be right if it receives so much criticism?” (With that argument you can support racism, sexism and any other oppression.) G^d forbid for Israel that he’d become US president. But that’s the norm, not the exception. Jews are attacked first. Sanders is the ideal person for that with his Jüdischer Selbsthaß — Jewish self-hatred.

It might be the biggest insult that British Jews-friendly run-away MPs could think of but comparing Corbyn to Trump won’t stand up. The extreme right and the extreme left hate Jews. Trump doesn’t.

Anyway, a worldwide campaign to decriminalize homosexuality is long overdue. It’s great anyone starts it. Even a nationalist bigot.

Put it next to the abolition of the death penalty — and there the US is way behind the civilized world.

It should be followed by a campaign to unmask the cure the gays therapies. Here is a great new clip about it.

It’s not true that there are no rules. But generalities are so hard to maintain, lately. But that might not be a valid law either. Ahhh …

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.
