there’s literally no where to go
haha, oh my god, like, JUST TO BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT HERE, for anyone who might not know, jewish voices for peace is in fact a pro-palestine organization! it’s pro-BDS! it’s concerned about misuse of charges of antisemitism to stifle debate! it wants to end the occupation! like, re: the question in one of these comments, “is killing palestinians a hate crime?” ALMOST CERTAINLY WHOEVER POSTED THIS STATUS ON THE JVP FB PAGE WOULD SAY YES!!!
so like, these are your quote-unquote “good jews,” is what i’m saying here, ok, these are the ones you fucking awful so-called progressives like to tokenize and pretend to understand and care about, but you still don’t fucking listen to them except when it’s convenient, except when they’re saying exactly what you want to hear; you still speak over them and accuse them of making shit up for attention and like, literally what the fuck do you WANT, what has to HAPPEN for you to realize that not everything is about israel, that we’re not always the oppressors, that in many (most!!!) circumstances we’re still an incredibly vulnerable marginalized group, like, literally what does it take?
here is what happened in kansas city yesterday: an admitted long-time antisemite shot up two jewish facilities on the eve of a major jewish holiday and then shouted “heil hitler” on camera as he was being arrested, and yet somehow it’s maybe not a hate crime, somehow this is about gun control and mental illness and the fact that white men are never demonized as terrorists the way POC are, it’s about gaza and it’s about the IDF and it’s about the dumbass idea that use of the term antisemitism is in fact itself oppressive, it’s about the evils of organized religion in general and it’s about EVERYTHING IN THE GODDAMN WORLD EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT, GUESS WHAT, A LOT OF PEOPLE STILL FUCKING HATE JEWS AND YOU ALL DON’T CARE, and just, like, what do you even fucking WANT? i don’t know. i really don’t.
