Anti-Semitic Conservatives And Anti-White Leftists

By: Slow to Write Topic: Racism

Kanye posted an image of a Swastika inside the Star of David, prompting Elon Musk to suspend him from Twitter.

Like woke people who deny that critical race theory is anti-white, some conservatives deny that Kanye’s words are antisemitic. Some conservatives on social media also defended Kanye’s words by appealing to his right to freedom of speech.

That, however, is a pathetic example of a red herring fallacy. If these shameful conservatives really believed freedom of speech justifies antisemitism, then why haven’t they appealed to freedom of speech to justify anti-white ideology?

The answer is simple: they are hypocritical liars. They know we can support freedom of speech and denounce hateful thinking at the same time. They know supporting freedom of speech and denouncing antisemitism are not mutually exclusive.

The reason why they’re defending Kanye’s words isn’t because they love freedom of speech. They’re defending Kanye’s words because they love antisemitism.

For what it’s worth, unless Kanye threatens or incites violence—I don’t think his social media accounts should be suspended. Freedom of speech includes freedom of hate speech. Suspending his social media accounts might actually press him into a more destructive echo chamber.

Nevertheless, it’s not just conservatives who are defending Kanye. I would be disappointed though not entirely surprised if Christless conservatives were the only conservatives defending Kanye. However, some Christian conservatives are defending Kanye.

With a Bible in front him, Kanye referenced Christian values as a basis for his antisemitism. But instead of being disgusted by this, some professing Christians—including some of my own followers—made it known that they’re more interested in defending Kanye than defending Christ.

One of the most despicable reactions to Kanye’s antisemitic words came from the founder and CEO of Gab, Andrew Torba. He said:

I believe that Ye demonstrated the love of Jesus Christ today on Infowars, which extends to all people…Pray that people will look beyond the attacks of the Enemy to destroy and defame him…As we have these conversations with our friends and family about the taboo, but truthful topics being discussed right now we have to remember that not everyone knows as much as we do. We need to have patience and empathy with people as they wake up to the reality of what is going on in our world and who is doing it.”

When Andrew Torba says, “not everyone knows as much as we do. We need to have patience and empathy with people as they wake up to the reality of what is going on in our world and who is doing it“, does that sound familiar to you?

Have you noticed that those words are identical to how some woke Christians talk about critical race theory and white supremacy?

Andrew Torba is essentially saying not everyone is woke about Jews supposedly controlling and oppressing our society.

If that is surprising to you, it shouldn’t be. After all, anti-white critical race theory is identical to antisemitic conspiracy theories.

This is because they both primarily consist of three sins: suspicion, bearing false witness, and especially—partiality.

I despise white supremacy because it’s partiality. I despise critical race theory because it’s partiality. And I despise antisemitism because it’s partiality.

So if you hate white supremacy, you should hate critical race theory. And if you hate critical race theory, you should hate antisemitism.

Otherwise, you’re no different from critical race theorists. Antisemitic conservatives are just like anti-white leftists.
