If this were set in North America, it could be a trailer for the film adaptation of Victoria. Although the U.S. is not quite as far along, we are certainly on the same path to collapse as Europe.

This Is The World You Chose: Episode 3

Most or all of these are not new, but TITWYC is about collecting evidence of all liberal lunacy, not necessarily the most recent happenings. Let’s go.

It’s not too late at this point. You can still back out:

Trans-normalization is arguably the next SJW crusade, but incest is not far behind. I’m surprised these two aren’t nominated for president with the amount of victim boxes they check:

Because this is what you want your kids to see when they flick on the TV:

Parents that choose not to vaccinate their children because they worry about the side effects are harangued while this boy’s parents and his “doctor” are applauded for ruining his life, all in the name of “progress”. Heartbreaking:

tradLIFE: Breadlines

breadlines

Every time I see the “Breadlines” meme, the comment section is always flooded with reactive support for capitalism, usually from Tea Party types. Typically it is something akin to “I support Traditionalism and capitalism!” Anyone that says this is missing the point of the meme and they also have not given capitalism enough thought.

Socialism (at least universalist socialism) is obviously crazy. Taking money and/or goods from society’s producers and handing them to society’s takers for no reason other than that they happen to exist serves only to bring the entire society down to its lowest common denominator.

Capitalism, on the other hand, seems to be something entirely different. On the surface, it appears to be a system where anyone in society—not just the best and brightest—can become as wealthy as their abilities will allow. Producers compete to provide the best product or service for the lowest price, all to the benefit of society’s consumers.

The problem is that it does not actually work out like that. Big corporations compete only when they have to. They actually hate competition and do everything they can to eliminate it. More often than not, the best products are left behind for the cheapest junk. As if sacrificing quality for profits were not enough, labor is outsourced to the other side of the world (with the final product being wastefully shipped back to its destination market) in order to squeeze out a few more percentage points for the board of directors. Big impersonal corporations with no loyalty to place or folk that push out the artisans and creators are no friends of Tradition.

Traditionalism is not an “-ism” in the usual ideological sense, but more of a world view. Rather than deciding what system is best for the economy, Tradition asks how communities can best be served economically. It firstly abhors a culture of consumerism and urges a reevaluation of needs versus wants. Capitalism has told us that we will be happy if we buy stuff—stuff we pay for by working in dimly-lit boxes all day doing the same robotic task until the day we die—but Traditionalism responds that the things that yield a good life are almost always intangible. Traditionalism means preferring the rituals and connections with one’s environment rather than treating everyone and everything as commodities.

To bring this full-circle, we make our bread because it offers us a chance to find reward in working to create something ourselves. It is even better if we work together with family or friends to do it. Sharing your bread means so much more (to say nothing of the quality) when it emerges from your oven and not a plastic sleeve.

And I get it. Not everyone wants to spend time in the kitchen making bread every time a sandwich is made. But that is why Tradition requires a cultural shift. Previous generations made do by staying well-connected with their extended family and by building and maintaining strong communities. If you don’t have bread, your cousin or grandmother may have made some. If you really must buy it, support your community and buy a fresh baked loaf from your baker. He and his family will appreciate it.

If a label is needed, this is called Distributism. The means of production are decentralized, or “distributed”, as much as possible. None of this happens by state action either. It happens by making a conscious cultural shift in favor of family, community, and Tradition and moving away from grotesque international systems of economics. favicon

This Is The World You Chose: Episode 2

IMG_0052

As the dying brontosaurus we call liberal civilization rapidly moves toward extinction we can take note of the carnival of fools we live in. Looking for bizarre and absurd stories is about as easy as buying groceries at the store. Let’s see what we have this week:

    1. While feminazis and fembot retards are complaining about exploitation, gamer-gate, and the male gaze the most popular reading material for women is Fifty-Shades of Grey which was just released as a movie Feb 13, 2015. This soft-porn novel is about a rich and wealthy sugar daddy taking advantage of a woman and forcing her to sign non-disclosure agreements to keep her quiet. Why would women want to read about one of their own being taken advantage of, while at the same time complaining about sexual objectification of women in video games and TV? If anything shows us that modern women are schizophrenic and sadomasochistic it is this piece of trash. For a real romance read about Aragorn and Arwen and Faramir and Eowyn. No sadomasochistic women there.
    2. We see at the Huffington Post here that a woman might get life in prison for sexually assaulting her child and committing acts of bestiality with a dog. Really, raping your own child and screwing a dog?! Well this is the world you chose! Such activity in a just world would deprive her of the right to deny the state from removing her uniquely feminine organs.
    3. Going to The Blaze we see that spraying obscenities about Allah is hate speech. While of course “Piss Christ” is art and banning public expression of the Nativity and Ten Commandments is an atheist/liberal sacrament. Needless to say this just proves that our political leaders are the proverbial geldings and the terrorists are stallions.
    4. You know the world is broken when the so called conservatives are more liberal than Joe Stalin. According to PEW Research 60% of young Republicans support gay marriage. Not much more to say if Stalin was more conservative than the young Republicans. I never thought I’d have nostalgia for the USSR. Heaven help me. favicon

Aviation, Geography, and Race

Note: Not long ago, the views expressed on traditionalRIGHT were considered commonplace, taken for granted as true. In fact, this is the case for all of human history until Western civilization went out the window in the 20th century. The following is an article featured in the November 1939 Reader’s Digest written by America First Committee spokesman, aviation pioneer, and American hero, Charles Lindbergh. -Ed.

Aviation has struck a delicately balanced world, a world where stability was already giving way to the pressure of new dynamic forces, a world dominated by a mechanical, materialist, Western European civilization. Aviation is a product of that civilization, borne on the crest of its outlook. Typical also of its strength and its weakness, its vanity and its self-destruction–men flung upward in the face of God, another Icarus to dominate the sky, and in turn, to be dominated by it; for eventually the laws of nature determine the success of human effort and measure the value of human inventions in that divinely complicated, mathematically unpredictable, development of life at which Science has given the name of Evolution.

Aviation seems almost a gift from heaven to those Western nations who were already the leaders of their era, strengthening their leadership, their confidence, their dominance over other peoples. It is a tool specially shaped for Western hands, a scientific art which others only copy in a mediocre fashion, another barrier between the teeming millions of Asia and the Grecian inheritance of Europe – one of those priceless
possessions which permit the White race to live at all in a pressing sea of Yellow, Black, and Brown. But aviation, using it symbolically as well as in its own right, brings two great dangers, one peculiar to our modern civilization, the other older than history. Since aviation is dependent on the intricate organization of life and industry, it carries with it the environmental danger of a people too far separated from the soil and from the sea – the danger of that physical decline which so often goes with a high intellectual development, of that spiritual decline which seems invariably to accompany an industrial life, of that racial decline which follows physical and spiritual mediocrity.

lindberg-2-main

A great industrial nation may conquer the world in the span of a single life, but its Achilles’ heel is time. Its children, what of them? The second and third generations, of what numbers and stuff will they be? How long can men thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing the fumes of coal and of oil, growing, working, dying, with hardly a thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine-made beauty, the mineral-like quality of life. This is our modern danger–one of the waxen wings of flight. It may cause our civilization to fall unless we act quickly to counteract it, unless we realize that human character is more important than efficiency, that education consists of more than the mere accumulation of knowledge.

But the other great danger is more easily recognized, because it has occurred again and again through history. It is the ember of war, fanned by every new military weapon, flaming today as it has never flamed before. It is the old internal struggle among a dominant people for power; blind, insatiable, suicidal. Western nations are again at war, a war likely to be more prostrating than any in the past, a war in which the White race is bound to lose, and the others bound to gain, a war which may easily lead our civilization through more Dark Ages if it survives at all. In this war, aviation is as important a factor as it has been a cause–a cause due to its effect on the balance of strength between nations, a factor because of the destruction and death it hurls on earth and sea. Air power is new to all our countries. It brings advantages to some and weakens others; it calls for readjustment everywhere.

If only there were some way to measure the changing character of men, some yardstick to reapportion influence among the nations, some way to demonstrate in peace the strength of arms in war. But with all of its dimensions, its clocks, and weights, and figures, science fails us when we ask a measure for the rights of men. They cannot be judged by numbers, by distance, weight, or time; or by counting heads without a thought of what may lie within. Those intangible qualities of character, such as courage, faith, and skill, evade all systems, slip through the bars of every cage. They can be recognized, but not measured. They lie more in a glance between two men than in any formula or mathematics. They form the unseen strength of an army, the genius of a people.

Likewise, in judging aviation, in its effect on modern nations, no satisfactory measurement of strength exists. It is bound to geography, environment, and racial character so closely that an attempt to judge by numbers would be like counting Greeks at Marathon. What advantages will they gain? What new influence can they exert? To judge this, one must look not only at their aviation but at them, at the geography of their country, at their problems of existence, at their habits of life.

Mountains, coastlines, great distances, ground fortifications, all those safeguards of past generations, lose their old significance as man takes to his wings. The English Channel, the snow-capped Alps, the expanses of Russia, are now looked on from a different height. The forces of Hannibal, Drake and Napoleon moved at best with the horses’ gallop or the speed of wind on sail. Now, aviation brings a new concept of time and distance to the affairs of men. It demands adaptability to change, places a premium on quickness of thought and speed of action.

Military strength has become more dynamic and less tangible. A new alignment of power has taken place, and there is no adequate peacetime measure for its effect on the influence of nations. There seems no way to agree on the rights it brings to some and takes from others. The rights of men within a nation are readjusted in each generation by laws of inheritance – land changes hands as decades pass, fortunes are taxed from one generation to the next; ownership is no more permanent than life. But among nations themselves there is no similar provision to reward virility and penalize decay, no way to reapportion the world’s wealth as tides of human character ebb and flow–except by the strength of armies. In the last analysis, military strength is measurable only by its own expenditure, by the prostration of one contender while the other can still stagger on the field–and all about the wolves of lesser stature abide their time to spring on both the warriors.

We, the heirs of European culture, are on the verge of a disastrous war, a war within our own family of nations, a war which will reduce the strength and destroy the treasures of the White race, a war which may even lead to the end of our civilization. And while we stand poised for battle, Oriental guns are turning westward, Asia presses towards us on the Russian border, all foreign races stir restlessly. It is time to turn from our quarrels and to build our White ramparts again. This alliance with foreign races means nothing but death to us. It is our turn to guard our heritage from Mongol and Persian and Moor, before we become engulfed in a limitless foreign sea. Our civilization depends on a united strength among ourselves; on strength too great for foreign armies to challenge; on a Western Wall of race and arms which can hold back either a Genghis Khan or the infiltration of inferior blood; on an English fleet, a German air force, a French army, an American nation, standing together as guardians of our common heritage, sharing strength, dividing influence.

Our civilization depends on peace among Western nations, and therefore on united strength, for Peace is a virgin who dare not show her face without Strength, her father, for protection. We can have peace and security only so long as we band together to preserve that most priceless possession, our inheritance of European blood, only so long as we guard ourselves against attack by foreign armies and dilution by foreign races.

We need peace to let our best men live to work out those more subtle, but equally dangerous, problems brought by this new environment in which we dwell, to give us time to turn this materialistic trend, to stop prostrating ourselves before this modern idol of mechanical efficiency, to find means of combining freedom, spirit, and beauty with industrial life–a peace which will bring character, strength, and security back to Western peoples.

With all the world around our borders, let us not commit racial suicide by internal conflict. We must learn from Athens, and Sparta before all of Greece is lost. favicon

This Is The World You Chose: Episode 1

“This is the world you chose” is an excellent rhetorical device used to point out the madness of the post-Enlightenment, liberal order. All you need to do when debating is point to the disgusting state of society, which was all enabled by their poisonous ideology.

In this column we will point out recent insanities from the world of Progress!, and generally point and laugh. Remember: if you are a Liberal–classical or modern–this is the world you chose.

Jack Donovan posted this on his Facebook page on Thursday. What’s sad is how un-shocking this really is. Of course there are now lacy bras made just for men.

If there was any doubt that Western culture was truly dead and it is time to start anew, wait a week or two and look for a new bit of legislated cultural Marxism from either Britain or Sweden. Any time I think we have it bad in the U.S., I look to Europe and realize how much worse it can be. Labour politicians want to teach your five-year-old what a certain group of perverts like to do with their genitals.

I take it back. We really are insane. Think about how much you pay in taxes. If you are an average working American, you give up one-third to one-half of your earnings to the government. All that time and effort is confiscated. And what do they do with that money they pillaged? They spend it on hormone treatments for dirty, confused people that don’t even live here.

I didn’t want this. This is the world you chose. favicon

tradLIFE: Trads and Tech

texing in a museumSomewhere between ten and twenty years ago, humanity crossed a point of no return. Technology—specifically telecommunications—has dominated the world and utterly transformed how society functions. The implications are vast; the Internet influences geopolitics all the way down to how people buy clothes and groceries. What often gets overlooked, though, is how digital communications have revolutionized how we relate to one another and go about our lives.

Traditionalism starts with personal relationships and communing with the natural world. The obsession modernity has with smartphones, the Internet, and all manner of other video screens ruins both of those things. How much of the outside world is missed by sitting inside on a computer after work instead of taking an evening stroll with a sweetheart? How many men take part in vicarious tribalism in the form of televised sports rather than starting a bonfire and sharing stories with other real-life men? How many precious moments with one’s children are passed up because, “one more minute, I need to finish reading this article on my phone and then check Facebook”? How many urban farms could be started or skills learned or mountains climbed if the 4-to-5 hours outside of work the average Westerner spends per day in front of a screen were traded for time spent living life?

Consider too the health consequences of our technology habits. It almost goes without saying that television and computers introduced sedentary lifestyles and made nearly everyone fat. Now we have “text neck,” a real condition recognized by medical professionals. The radiation from cells phones is linked various kinds of cancers. Attention spans are virtually non-existent. The blue light emitted by every single electronic device with a screen disrupts circadian rhythms, making full, restful sleep impossible if they are used even a few hours before going to bed. That light is also especially harmful to babies and children, whose eyes are still developing and calibrating to the world around them. The technology is killing us.

It must be said that radical Traditionalism and Identitarianism would be nowhere without the Internet. That doesn’t mean we have to spend our whole lives in front of electronic devices though. Allow yourself an hour after work to go online and check the news and read a few articles. But then stop. Build something. Create something. Grow something. Play music. Read, talk, pray, hunt. You have a life—live it! favicon

The Road to Imperium

William S. Lind asserts that people’s primary concern in their hierarchy of needs is order. The modern state, he argues (as does Thomas Hobbes), which came into existence because it monopolized the legitimate use of violence, is absolutely essential for human survival and anything resembling civilization. Order is paramount and the state provides order, therefore the state is good.

In his theory on the generations of modern war, Lind contends that barring extreme circumstances, the actor working within the higher generational war framework will prevail in battle. Fourth Generation warfare (4GW), the most recent to emerge, is a contest for legitimacy, with battlefield combat no longer being the primary deciding factor in determining victory as it was in the first three generations. Legitimacy is being awarded to non-state actors by standing for tribe, race, gang, religion, cause, etc., and sheer military might is not enough to force an enemy to change his loyalty and acquiesce. This is evidenced by the United States’ clear military victories being virtually inconsequential to the loyalties and actions of the people throughout the Middle East. Groups like Hezbollah, al Qaeda, and ISIS exist because the U.S. and its puppet governments in that region are seen as illegitimate.

Curiously, despite acknowledging that primary loyalties are shifting away from states, Lind insists that defending the nation-state is the only way forward. By acknowledging this inconsistency it is my intention to show that 4GW is actually the only way to not just save Western man, but to return him to glory. I also see something beyond 4GW that is beginning to emerge and, although it is far too early to tell for sure, it looks an awful lot like a Fifth Generation of modern war.

First, some clarifications

  • When I refer to 4GW forces, I am strictly referring to the non-state entities that are drawing loyalties away from states. Unless it is explicitly stated, I am not talking about combat. 4GW is firstly a political phenomenon because the contest is ultimately for legitimacy.
  • The state in the context of this analysis refers to the post-Westphalian nation-state, not any and all forms of government.

The state is out of date
It is far too simplistic to say that people’s most basic need is order. Order is a prerequisite for higher culture, true, but survival is the number-one concern. The state came into being because it protected a people. Blood and folkways were defended from criminals and invaders, and a more centralized authority provided instruments for civilizational advancement. The state’s new prime directive is advancing ideology, and order is doled out selectively. Look at the Ferguson riots and how the state utterly refused to crack down on the violence because it did not serve the greater political narrative to do so. European peoples, both on the continent and the diaspora, are no longer feeling protected by the states they founded.

Consider the many other ways that the modern state not only fails to protect, but is now actually detrimental to the survival of Europeans:

  • Foreign wars of choice, especially since 1945, that have sacrificed thousands of lives not in the name of the Fatherland or the tribe, but for special interests coughIsraelcough and a globalist ideology.
  • The capitalist economy, which knows no borders or loyalties, has put our workers and craftsmen out of business. It has also had the effect of turning every spare plot of land into a strip mall that sells cheap junk.
  • Anti-family policies—Welfare that targets single mothers, no-fault divorce, the absence of family living wages which requires two working parents
  • Anti-white policies like non-white immigration, affirmative action,that are replacing Europeans in their homelands and the countries they founded.
  • Taxes and the monetary policy make responsible behavior, like saving for hard times and avoiding debt, something to be discouraged.
  • It is anti-traditional and anti-religious. The state is no longer for a people, so patriotism is all that matters. Without the spiritual mandate from the tribe, the state is the only thing left to be loved and honored.
  • It is totalitarian. Massive security measures become more necessary the tighter the ideological grip becomes.

While the state is failing to fulfill its original reason for existing and even going so far as to be accomplishing the opposite, the world is also outgrowing the very idea of the state.

Mass communications, especially the internet, allow a way around government censors that are present in other media. New ideas are now available for anyone willing to look. Who could imagine Identitarianism going beyond a musing in a coffee shop just 20 years ago? It also puts into contact, as does fast, affordable transportation, people who would not have been able to do so in an earlier age. By connecting it turns out that not all Frenchmen are “cheese-eating surrender monkeys,” Russians are not drunk communist savages, and Spaniards are not Mexicans on a different continent. We are incredibly similar and share a spectacular civilization. Sure, there are familial differences, but we are just that: part of one European family.

As soon as we see that, hostilities between states make very little sense. Consider the Neo-Cold War of the past year: Why on Earth should millions of NATO soldiers sign up to be ready to kill millions of Russian soldiers with families trembling in fear at home on both sides just because the governments cannot get along (all while those governments invite millions of non-white invaders into our lands)? The people have no quarrel with one another and old national grudges have gone by the wayside.

The state is simply too small for what we need today, and yet too big at the same time. It is too small to incorporate the civilizational currents that are starting to rise. Broader Western civilization cannot be defended by states that are ultimately only concerned by their narrow self-interest. The state is also too big to be an instrument for tribal and local concerns. The United States central government has all but stomped out regional particularities and European states erode smaller historic identities.

It is time to abandon the concept of the state for something new.

Enter 4GW
The state simply does not work for Europeans anymore. We have to recognizes this. We also have to recognize that the same forces that are making the state obsolete, like affordable transportation, advanced communications, and the continued dominance of multi-national corporations, have made globalism inevitable. We need a new organization that can provide state services and compete on a global scale, but one that is not so monolithic or bureaucratic as the nation-state or confederations like the EU. I am proposing the formation of a non-state, 4GW entity that will act for the benefit of our people and civilization. In my next article I will discuss specifics, but here I will cover the basic nature of what this organization should be:

  • It is NOT a political party. We are leaving the state behind. Our loyalty is to our people and to the organization; and that only because it is good for our people. It will operate within the legal system (because it has to in order to survive initially), but not as part of it.
  • It is not “waiting for the collapse.” A formal over-night collapse probably will not happen. The state will continue to de-legitimize itself with heavy-handed tactics and mismanagement of resources. Our job is to push that which is ready to fall by providing services where the state is clearly failing and by siphoning away loyalty. When the state finally is in a position of real weakness, we will have something ready to fill the void for our people.
  • It will run political candidates, but only as explicit Europeans, just as blacks and other PoC run as explicit minorities. We have no interest in doing good for “the country,” we will only use what is left of the machinery to do what is good for us. This is of course much further down the road.
  • It is not bound or defined by geography. Cells will be established wherever Europeans are located. Cells will have a fair amount of autonomy, but a central governing body will coordinate and keep the organization on the same page. The primary goal is to defend and unite Europeans, wherever they are.
  • It will start out as a charity, helping out poor and working-class whites on the condition of improvement. A family wants to have a fourth or fifth child, but they need help paying for food? We give them a check or a weekly food basket. An alcoholic deadbeat living in a trailer park wants to improve his life? We pay for him to learn a trade on the condition that he submits a drug test and financial records every week. The organization delivers real welfare and builds a political constituency. Later the organization will provide other services that have come to be expected from states, like schools and hospitals.
  • It will establish intentional communities that are beautiful and safe.
  • It will provide security forces for troubled white communities and would eventually be capable of small military interventions. One could easily envision an operation to evacuate the last remaining Afrikaners in a Fall-of-Saigon-style crisis.
  • It would also issue money or a new crypto-currency, similar to Bitcoin.

The road to Imperium
A Fourth Generation world is a world of chaos, and is not sustainable. The hypothetical entity described above cannot be an end in itself. The key is to use it to our advantage as a way to transition to something greater. Here is where inklings of major meta-political change are beginning to emerge, in the form of very large imperial blocs. This is in fact a new flavor of globalism. One that respects human differences, but allows problems to be solved that can only be addressed on a global level.

Fifth Generation warfare, if it can be called that at all in the absence of the nation-state, would probably be conducted by resource and trade manipulation. A world divided by irreconcilable civilizational differences would likely see peace like has never been known before simply because each would be left alone to determine its own destiny.

As smaller barriers are brought down and the European stocks are intermixed, we need to reach for deeper sources of identity, like those of race and our common civilization. You might say, “I have a dream” that one day Europeans are united under one spiritual and political empire across Europe, Siberia, North America, and Australia, with outposts under the same banner wherever else we may be, be it South America, Africa, or across the stars. favicon

Ashkenazi Jews Are Not White – Response to Haaretz Article

Editor’s note: This article is a blog post republished from The Times of Israel. This is an important piece, straight from the horse’s mouth, that illustrates Jewish identity as something separate from that of the European. favicon

By Hila Hershkoviz, December 5, 2014

In response to Haaretz article “Jews, white privilege and the fight against racism in America” (by Benjy Cannon 4/12/14) I would like to say loud and clear: Ashkenazi Jews are not white.

Every time I read about a Jew somewhere identifying as a white person, I cringe. As an Israeli Jew, who like most other Israeli Jews, is completely foreign to the concept of Jews being “white” I would like to address this article to my Jewish brothers and sisters in America.

Ashkenazi Jews who identify as “white”, please understand the following:

1. History and identity – As late as 1987 the US legally defined Jews as non-white. To the best of my knowledge, 50 years ago Jews had the same skin color as they do today. I deduce that white is not skin color, it is first and foremost an issue history and identity. The “white people world” is represented by its European (often colonial) history, it’s culture, heroes, it’s Kings, ethos, faith etc. – and Ashkenazi Jews are not part of that world. Their heroes are the Maccabees and not the Vikings or Joan of Arc, their Kings are David King of Israel and Hezekiah King of Judah (both archeologically confirmed historical figures) and not Kings Edward and George.

Secondly, Jews are not a “religion”. While in the Western world identities fall under the categories of religion or race, Middle Eastern people have tribal identities that are based neither the former nor the latter. Jews, similar to Pashtuns (who also often have pale skin and yet would not identify as white people) and other Middle Eastern Tribes, are neither religion nor race but a tribe. Jewish identity since the days of the Kingdoms of Judah and Israel had always been a tribal/national peoplehood. While tribal practices and customs (which is often incorrectly referred to as “Judaism”) and a strong biological link between many of the members are certainly present, Israelite identity was never based on either of these. Israelite identity has always been a tribal membership that goes by lineage (being born into the Tribes of Israel) or tribal acceptance (which is incorrectly translated as “conversion”). The identity Ashkenazi Jews have today is identical to that of King David whose great grandmother was a Moabite convert, but was nonetheless a Jew by virtue of being born into the Tribes of Israel by lineage.

You are Jews not because of your “religion” (are you even religious?), but because you were born into a tribe/people called the Nation of Israel. You are not “white people” with a “Jewish religion”, you are Jews – members of a people who origniated in Judea, whether you adhere to the laws of the tribe or not.

Thirdly, Ashkenazi Jews have been the victims of Europeans and Western imperialism for centuries precisely because they were not perceived as part of the “white people world”, beginning with the Roman colonialism of their nation state and ending with 6 million of them being killed precisely because they were non-whites.

2. Culture – Whether it’s the Hebrew calendar, the tefillin they put on at their Bar Mitzvah identical to the ancient second Temple tefillin found in Qumran and across Israel or celebrating the Judean revolt for independence in our historic homeland on Hanukkah – Ashkenazi Jews have kept the entire indigenous culture, customs, traditions, books, and to a high extant language and of their ancestors – Judeans and other Israelites.

3. Biology – Although biology is not the main part of the issue, Ashkenazi Jews are not genetically white either. An extensive number of genetic studies show they originated in the Middle East, that despite European admixture they are genetic brothers of other Jews, Palestinians, Druze and Lebanese Arabs and share a highly significant amount of ancestry with Sephardi Jews to whom they are genetically almost identical.

Lastly, Ashkenazi Jews, whether the world likes it or not (and apparently it does not), are direct descendants of the Tribes of Israel, as we know from history, culture, science and a little something I like to call reality. Those who wish to deny it for political or theological reasons, should try forming an alliance with holocaust deniers because the two are no different.

Jews are not white. People who try to argue otherwise are not only abrogating history and denying our people’s authentic identity, they are in fact (even if unintentionally) also practicing a form of Western imperialism, as nobody has the right to superimpose an artificial Western identity on a people with an ancient Middle Eastern-tribal identity. Nobody has the right to try and make Jews, or any other Middle Eastern people, feel they “need” to fit into the “neat” Western categories of religion and race. Nobody has the right to force Jews into identifying as white people when they are clearly not. As for Jews who identify as white without being forced to do so – please decolonize your identities and understand that the identity your claim to express is a falsification of who you really are.

 

Hey, she said it. -Ed.
