That’s the breathless conclusion of M.J. Rosenberg over at Talking Points Memo. The neocons are spreading the anti-Semitic canard that Jews are not “real Americans” and can’t relate to Sarah Palin because she is a typical White person.
This is a great example of what Kevin MacDonald calls Jewish self deception. The charge happens to be true. Jews look at Sarah Palin and they see the most white bread conservative leader since Pat Buchanan. They see the implicit whiteness in the metastasizing Tea Party crowds.
Their cultural antennae has a visceral negative emotional reaction. It goes far beyond public policy disagreements. Their gut instinct tells them crowds of angry White people are “bad for the Jews.”
When White Americans respond to negro and Hispanic chauvinists in this way, Jews decry it as “racism.” In a sense, they are right. It is racial prejudice at work; an emotional short cut that bypasses reason.
Jews are unwilling to acknowledge their own “Europhobia” : their fear and loathing of White people. They rationalize their own prejudices and throw the charge back at their accusers.
This self deception is necessary to maintain their own self image as liberal, tolerant, enlightened people. It is one of the many ways Jews lie to themselves and others about their intentions.
