Reformation 2: The Aliening
CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT POPE FRANCIS IS SO FRIKKIN CHILL THAT IF AN ALIEN WALKED IN TO THE VATICAN HE WOULDN’T EVEN FREAK OUT HE’D JUST BE LIKE “SUP DUDE LETS GO GET YA SOME JESUS”
I’m so angry and upset right now I think I’m gonna cry
Goyim conflate Israel with diasporic Jews - and then take it out on us, the diasporic Jews, who have no say or vote in what Israel does, who may not even want to be affiliated at all with Israel, who may even hate Israel for what it’s done, or who recognize the need for Israel but hate and actively oppose the state of it now. The list is endless. The point I’m making is that what is happening right now is being taken out on us, an oppressed ethnic and religious minority everywhere except for one small state, and often with violence
And when we talk about rising antisemitism, we get called k*ke and y*d and other slurs, and EVERY. SINGLE. DAMN. TIME. we’re told “but israel!!!! israel is shit so you people are shit!!!1!1 antisemitism doesn’t exist!!!1&!!!1!”
And what may be even worse than that is that it comes from all sides - right AND LEFT. The people who supposedly fight for people’s rights and fight against oppression either don’t care or ACTIVELY PATICIPATE IN THE SPREADING OF ANTISEMITISM.
So if YOU are a non-Jew, and think of yourself as someone who cares and fights for the rights of marginalized and oppressed people, EDUCATE YOURSELF and EDUCATE YOUR FELLOW NON-JEWS ABOUT THIS SHIT
RECOGNIZE that you are IGNORANT about Judaism - the religion, the culture, the people as a minority ethnic group in the diaspora, our various relations to and opinions of Israel, and *GASP* EVEN ZIONISM (which is probably where i see the most ignorance)
RECOGNIZE that you ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN ANTISEMITISM (even just by ignoring it), and if you care, you MUST make actions to turn that around
TL;DR - Antisemitism is rampant and increasingly so, even in social justice circles. If you are a gentile, recognize that you are actively participating in the oppression of a marginalized group of people, and educate yourself and others
Please everyone, especially if you are a gentile, SPREAD THIS SHIT LIKE WILDFIRE
OPINIONS CAN BE RACIST
OPINIONS CAN BE SEXIST
OPINIONS CAN BE HOMOPHOBIC
stop using “it’s just my opinion” to justify your bigotry.
