The legendary rapper Ice Cube is being attacked on Twitter for posting a picture of an infamous mural in London.
Others claim that the mural is “not anti-semitic”
Rachel Kaplan, who styles her Twitter bio as (((Rachel Kaplan))) reminded everyone that Ice Cube once promoted a book by the Nation of Islam titled, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” about the Jewish role in the slave trade. People are allowed, even encouraged, to pretend that all white people were slave owners, but it’s not acceptable to remind people of Jewish slave owners.
Others “jewsplain” to Ice Cube that he shouldn’t “fight racism with racism.”
Some posters with “Black Lives Matter” ask why is the mural anti-semitic when it only shows a bunch of “old white people” – which apparently would be fine, except two of the “old white men” in the mural are Jewish, Rothschilds, thus it’s “anti-semitic.” If it only showed, say, some Rockefellers, who are not Jewish, that would be ok.
This isn’t the first time that the “left” has been tripped up over “anti-semitism” and Louis Farrakhan.
Vanessa Wruble, a Brooklyn-based activist, said she told the group that her Jewish heritage inspired her to try to help repair the world. But she said the conversation took a turn when Tamika Mallory, a black gun control activist, and Carmen Perez, a Latina criminal justice reform activist, replied that Jews needed to confront their own role in racism.
Ms. Mallory is a fan of Louis Farrakhan, hence the accusations of “anti-semitism.”
The Movement For Black Lives, a Black Lives Matter-aligned group, once denounced the genocide of Palestinians by Israel, drawing an attack in the media by Jonathan Greenblatt of the ADL.
It seems every time black people get off the reservation, a Jewish manager appears to round them up and point them in the right direction. The enemy is white people who are not Jewish. As long as black people just attack white people who are not Jewish, they are given positive media coverage, lavish funding, and corporate support from the Fortune 500.
But if they point to Jewish people, that’s “anti-semitism” and they are quickly shut down. They can’t even show solidarity with Palestinians or point to Israel’s apartheid policies and genocide of the indigenous population of Palestine.
The message is clear. Jewish lives matter. Black lives matter only to the extent that they attack white people who are not Jewish. And white lives don’t matter, and Palestinians won’t even have lives in the very near future, as the Trump administration is prepared to offer unconditional support and political cover to Israel as they institute the Final Solution to the Palestinian Problem.
Jewish lives matter. Yours? Not so much.
