To be precise, enumerating Jews is not allowed in a critical or neutral context, such as Weisman’s 2015 Iran Deal article. It’s fine to celebrate Jewish contributions, but don’t mention the Jewish role in an objective manner.
Every anti Jewish trope doubles as pro Jewish praise depending on context and speaker. Joe Biden’s famous, or infamous, speech praising Jewish dominance of culture and the changes ensuing from that, for example. To say a few talented Jews determine the course of social progress is reprehensible–if one views it objectively (much less from the valid, critical point of view of a self-interested non-Jew).
It’s okay if one views it as an unqualified good, however, as Joe Biden, taking his moral direction directly from cultural propaganda, demonstrated without drawing a sideways glance:
“I believe what affects the movements in America, what affects our attitudes in America are as much the culture and the arts as anything else,” he said. That’s why he spoke out on gay marriage “apparently a little ahead of time.”
“It wasn’t anything we legislatively did. It was ‘Will and Grace,’ it was the social media. Literally. That’s what changed peoples’ attitudes. That’s why I was so certain that the vast majority of people would embrace and rapidly embrace” gay marriage, Biden said.
“Think behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good,” he said.
The problem seems to be in the “all to the good” part. Right now the advance of trans rights remains unchallenged, the gays look invincible and the demographic displacement of whites chugs on. Those changes Biden praises seem, despite everything, irreversible. That’s why Biden felt comfortable expressing things as plainly as he did, all the way back in 2013.
Things have changed a bit. If those changes, somehow deemed self-evident by cloistered elites like Biden, are challenged, their champions will be challenged, perhaps. Triumphalism such as Biden’s could be, historically speaking, the equivalent of celebrating before entering the end zone.
Biden, seemingly oblivious to implications–Joe is not redpilled–doesn’t see the danger here to his favorite ethnicity. In tying drastic social changes, the effects of which we can only guess at with trepidation, to the Jews he’s hung a sign about their neck like a thousand YouTube antisemites never could have done.
With praise like this who needs criticism?
