A few days ago Roger Cohen had a typically Semitic column published in the New York Times, full of classic Semitic tropes.
This is a time of growing fears, in Europe and the United States. Ghosts have stirred. Humanity never quite grows out of the buffoon’s attractions: the scapegoats he offers; the fast money; the rush of violence; the throb of nation and flag; the adrenaline of the mob; the glorious future that will, he insists, avenge past humiliations.
The Enlightenment was not the end of the story. Nor was 1989, that giddy moment for the liberal democratic idea, deemed self-evidently all conquering. An autocratic, nativist, xenophobic, nationalist reaction is now in full swing on both sides of the Atlantic — as the election in Austria demonstrates again. It demands resolute vigilance. It also demands that we listen, try to understand and resist fracture.
I posted a comment which was rejected by the NYT censors.
Your sneering at the patriotism of the goyim is really a kind of intellectual genocide. You deny people the right to their own identity, insisting that the wish for a normal human existence, living among your own people, with your own culture, in your own land, is some kind of pathology. You are a nomad who barely even attempts to conceal his contempt for the settled peoples of the world. You demand that we all become nomads like you, that our countries should be no more than hotels, mere temporary residences of convenience. Well, we don’t want to be nomads like you.
Your no-borders ideology, if consistently applied, would result in the obliteration of all the world’s peoples, the erasure of their distinctiveness, to be replaced by a global mish-mash population devoid of any character of its own. You present this as if it was some noble aspiration, but it isn’t. Like the Blue Whale game in Russia, in which warped minds try and persuade teenagers to commit suicide, it is simply a sinister demand for self-obliteration.
This metaphor of the Blue Whale game, which only occurred to me while I was making this comment, seems to me a good way of describing what is happening to us. For those not familiar with it, here is an explanatory video.
We are trapped in a blue whale game controlled by a hostile, alien elite trying to convince us to embrace our own extinction. The only way to win is to stop playing.
