Is it “anti-Semitic” to say there is war on Christmas?

Dan Rosenberg, writing in the Canadian Jewish News, claims that it’s “anti-Semitic” to say that there’s a war on Christmas. He also says that “terms such as ‘New York lawyers (and bankers),’ and ‘Hollywood culture’ refer to Jews. When people speak of the ‘secularists’ and ‘internationalists’ who are behind conspiracies like the War on Christmas, they are also referring to Jews.” And I suppose any mentions of globalists, George Soros’s influence, or the Israel Lobby are similarly off limits. In fact, for the likes of Rosenberg (and pretty much every Jew with a high position in the media), any mention that Jews are an elite or have any influence at all (or at least not any influence that is not utterly benign and good for everyone) is horrifying and utterly irrational.

Activists like Rosenberg are not limited by having to deal with actual data and facts. It’s simple. They can claim anything they want because any assertion that Jews have anything to do with changing Christian culture of America is automatically labeled as evil.

So what evidence does Rosenberg come up with?

The idea of the War on Christmas started with one of the founding fathers of American anti-Semitism: automaker Henry Ford. Back in the 1920s, he published a newsweekly called the International Jew. It frequently featured blatantly bigoted accusations such as, “Last Christmas, most people had a hard time finding Christmas cards that indicated in any way that Christmas commemorated someone’s birth.… People sometimes ask why three million Jews can control the affairs of 100 million Americans. In the same way that 10 Jewish students can abolish the mention of Christmas and Easter out of schools containing 3,000 Christian pupils.”

In modern times, Fox News has been airing segments such as Bill O’Reilly’s 2016 “Naughty or Nice” list, which praised businesses that use “Merry Christmas” and condemned others that say “Happy Holidays.”

That’s it. No heavy lifting required. Of course, it ignores Eli Plaut’s academic book A Kosher Christmas which proudly claims, in the words of a reviewer:

Jews have been the vanguard of an effort to “transform Christmastime into a holiday season belonging to all Americans,” without religious exclusivity.  The most important Jewish mechanisms of secularization are comedy and parody, for laughter undermines religious awe.  Take, for example, Hanukkah Harry from “Saturday Night Live”, who heroically steps in for a bedridden Santa by delivering presents from a cart pulled by donkeys named Moishe, Hershel, and Shlomo.  Remarkably, Hanukkah Harry has emerged as a real Santa-alternative for many American Jews.  Plaut sees such things not as attempts at assimilation but as an intentional subversion of Christmas traditions.  “Through these parodies,” he writes, “Jews could envision not having to be captivated by the allure of ubiquitous Christmas symbols.”  And it isn’t just Jews: for Americans in general, Jewish parody helps ensure that Christmas “not be taken too seriously” and that the celebrations of other traditions “be accorded equal respect and opportunity.”

As I note in my comment, “there seem to be two messages here. One is the message of subversion utilizing ridicule among other methods. The other is that Jews are seen as high-mindedly making Christmas  ‘into a holiday season belonging to all Americans.’ The end result is that Christmas is not ‘taken too seriously’ and the Christian religious aspect central to the traditional holiday is de-emphasized.”

So is it “blatantly bigoted” to make claims such as that Jews have been instrumental in getting Christianity removed from the public square? Of course not. In Chapter 7 of The Culture of Critique I noted: “One aspect of the Jewish interest in cultural pluralism in the United States has been that Jews have a perceived interest that the United States not be a homogeneous Christian culture. As Ivers (1995, 2) notes,

Jewish civil rights organizations have had an historic role in the postwar development of American church-state law and policy.” In this case the main Jewish effort began only after World War II, although Jews opposed linkages between the state and the Protestant religion much earlier. … The Jewish effort in this case was well funded and was the focus of well-organized, highly dedicated Jewish civil service organizations, including the AJCommittee, the AJCongress, and the ADL. It involved keen legal expertise both in the actual litigation but also in influencing legal opinion via articles in law journals and other forums of intellectual debate, including the popular media. It also involved a highly charismatic and effective leadership, particularly Leo Pfeffer of the AJCongress.

But, since Rosenberg focuses on Henry Ford, let’s take a look at what Ford’s The International Jew (TIJ)had to say (see my review). This was around 1920, well before the post-World War II era when Jewish influence crescendoed. The International Jew had a lot to say about Jewish efforts to eradicate the idea that America ought to be a Christian culture. Rosenberg writes that any mention of “Hollywood culture” is an unacceptable reference to Jews. Ford’s writers were well aware of this:

TIJ notes that to advocate censorship is construed as anti-Semitism: “Reader, beware! if you so much as resent the filth of the mass of the movies, you will fall under the judgment of anti-Semitism” (2/12/1921).

But, after noting that “90% of the production is in the hands of a few large companies, 85% of which “are in the hands of Jews” (2/12/1921), there was enough resentment about the movies that in fact attempts to control Hollywood were created shortly thereafter:

TIJ is careful to note that its concerns with the moral messages in movies are not idiosyncratic but part of a larger kulturkampf between the movie industry and large segments of the American public: “In almost every state there are movie censorship bills pending, with the old ‘wet’ and gambling elements against them, and the awakened part of the decent population in favor of them; always, the Jewish producing firms constituting the silent pressure behind the opposition” (2/12/1921). Indeed, the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, headed by Will H. Hays, was created in 1922 in response to movements in over thirty state legislatures to enact strict censorship laws, and the Production Code Administration, headed by Joseph I. Breen, was launched in response to a campaign by the Catholic Legion of Decency (Gabler 1988). TIJ’s reservations about the moral content of movies was indeed widely shared among the American public.

The effectiveness of these organizations in influencing the content of Hollywood culture lasted until the 1960s’ counter-cultural revolution, a social transformation, that as argued in Chapter 3 of The Culture of Critique, was the product of a new Jewish-dominated elite that remains dominant today. Moreover, “the assertions of TIJ are congruent with recent studies indicating that Jews remain in control of the movie industry and that the movies generally portray Christians and Christianity negatively and Jews and Judaism positively (e.g., Medved, 1992/1993; MacDonald, 2002a).” For recent examples, see Edmund Connelly’s War on Christmas articles (part one is here and part two here).

As also noted in the quote above from The Culture of Critique, TIJ was also well aware of Jewish influence in removing Christianity from the public square:

Besides the cultural influences described above, TIJ devotes a great deal of attention to the Jewish political campaigns against public expressions of Christianity and for official recognition of the Jewish religion (e.g., recognizing Jewish holidays). “The St. Louis Charity Fair in 1908 planned to remain open on Friday evening; a great outcry; did the managers of that fair mean to insult the Jews; didn’t they know that the Jewish Sabbath began on Friday night?” (6/04/1921). TIJ presents a history of Jewish activism against public expressions of Christianity based on Kehillah records [see TIJ‘s account of the Kehillah], beginning with an attempt in 1899–1900 to remove the word “Christian” from the Virginia Bill of Rights and culminating in 1919–1920: “In this year the Kehillah was so successful in its New York campaign that it was possible for a Jewish advertiser in New York to say that he wanted Jewish help, but it was not possible for a non-Jewish advertiser to state his non-Jewish preference. This is a sidelight both on Jewish reasonableness and Jewish power” (3/12/1920). “The Jews’ interference with the religion of the others, and the Jews’ determination to wipe out of public life every sign of the predominant Christian character of the United States is the only active form of religious intolerance in the country today” (3/21/1920).

Indeed, the focus of Jewish activism was that the United States was not a Christian civilization but an “unshapen mass of potentiality”:

Based on pronouncements of Jewish organizations and intellectuals, TIJ makes the important point that Jews promote “one of the dangerous doctrines being preached today” that “the United States is not any definite thing as yet, but that it is yet to be made, and it is still the prey of whatever power can seize it and mold it to its liking. It is a favorite Jewish view that the United States is a great unshapen mass of potentiality, of no particular character which is yet to be given its definite form. . . . We are not making Americans; we are permitting foreigners to be educated in the theory that America is a free-for-all, the prize of whatever fantastic foreign political theory may seize it” (3/05/1921). This comment on Jewish attitudes fits well with a great deal of evidence that Jews have consistently opposed the notion that the U.S. has any ethnic overtones or that it is a European or Christian civilization (see MacDonald, 1998/2002, Ch. 7). …

What strikes the reader of TIJ is its portrayal of Jewish intensity and aggressiveness in asserting its interests. Jews were unique as an American immigrant group in their hostility toward American Christian culture and in their energetic efforts to change that culture (see also MacDonald 1998b, 2002b). From the perspective of TIJ, the United States had imported around 3,500,000 mainly Yiddish speaking, intensely Jewish immigrants over the previous 40 years. In that very short period, Jews had had enormous effect on American society.

Fundamentally, TIJ was correct in all of its important assertions. I conclude:

Mainstream scholarship supports the following contentions of TIJ regarding Jewish influence on the U.S. as of the early 1920s:

  1. Jews had achieved a great deal of economic success, even to the point of dominating certain important U.S. industries.

  2. Jewish organizations had launched highly successful campaigns to remove references to Christianity from U.S. public culture and to legitimize Judaism as a religion on a par with Protestantism and Catholicism.

  3. Jewish organizations had been able to impose their ethnic interests on certain key areas of domestic policy. As TIJ noted, Jews were the main force behind maintaining the policy of unrestricted immigration; by 1920, unrestricted immigration policy had continued nearly 20 years after U.S. public opinion had turned against it (see MacDonald 1998b, Ch. 7). Jews had also shown the ability to have a great deal of influence in the executive branch of the U.S. government, as indicated by their influence in the Wilson administration.

  4. Jews had also been able to impose their ethnic interests in the area of foreign policy despite widespread feelings among the political establishment that the policies advocated by the Jewish community were often not in the best interests of the United States. The main examples highlighted by TIJ were the abrogation of the Russian trade agreement in 1911 and post-W.W.I policy toward Eastern Europe where Jewish attitudes were entirely dictated by their perceptions of the interests of foreign Jews rather than the economic or political interests of the U.S. Jews achieved their goals on these issues despite the views of the Taft Administration on the Russian Trade Agreement and the views of a wide range of military and diplomatic figures that the U.S. should support post-W.W.I Poland as a bulwark against Bolshevism and that Jewish complaints against Poland were exaggerated (see Bendersky 2000).

  5. Jews had been a major force behind the success of Bolshevism and its incredibly bloody reign of terror in the Soviet Union and in the abortive Communist revolutions in Hungary by Kun and Germany by Eisner.

  6. Jews were the main component and by far the most energetic component of the radical left in the United States, a movement that advocated a massive political, economic, and cultural transformation of the U.S.

  7. Jews had attained a substantial influence over the U.S. media via a virtual monopoly on the movie production business, domination of the theater and music businesses, their influence in journalism, ownership of some newspapers, and their ability to apply economic pressure on newspapers because of their importance as advertisers. In turn, the ability of Jews to pressure non-Jewish newspapers depended on Jewish ownership of department stores in major cities. Jews used this media influence to advance their domestic and foreign policy agendas, portray Jews and Judaism positively while portraying Christianity negatively, and promote a sexual morality at odds with the traditional culture of the United States.

In turn, these consequences stemmed from critical features of Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy

But for an activist like Rosenberg, all that is necessary is to scream “bigoted,” “anti-Semitic,” and the vast majority of people, unaware of the history of Jewish activism, acquiesce. This is unsurprising because the history of Jewish activism and influence can’t even be discussed in polite circles much less be disseminated in the mainstream media or the educational system.

Or they are well aware of  the Jewish role in transforming the culture of the United States, but they also aware of the Jewish power to ruin their lives.

In short the present situation is an excellent marker of Jewish power in contemporary America. And yes, Christianity remains in their crosshairs.

    Thank you for this excellent piece, Dr MacDonald. We need reminding of Jewish aggression against Christianity, especially in the Anglosphere. Looking around me in England, I see Christmas decorations going up as early as October, all of them without the slightest reference to Jesus — not a Bethlehem scene in sight, nor any sound of Silent Night or any Christian Christmas carol. All is gaudy baubles and Christmas ‘must haves’ on supermarket shelves, topped by stupidly grinning Santa heads that go so well with Jew-written ‘carols’ like Jingle Bells that hurt our hearts and ears.

    We see shop assistants with ugly plastic foam ‘reindeer horns’ on their heads, and office parties in restaurants, the diners wearing silly crepe-paper hats. They will be heading to the pubs on Christmas Eve, not to Midnight Mass. Of course, silly men dressed in red and sporting huge white beards are everywhere, ho-ho-ho-ing senselessly. How has St Nicholas fallen so low?

    Indeed, how did St Nicholas get himself turned into this ridiculous Santa figure? And how did he become conflated with Christmas? St Nicholas’ Day is 6 December. In Central and Eastern Europe, children put their booties in the window, and St Nicholas fills them with chocolates, and, as a joke, a birch stick to be smacked with when they are naughty. And there, on Christmas Eve, the alcohol-smelling watering holes and dance halls are deserted: Everyone has gone home to the family, having often travelled considerable distances to get there. Children find their presents under the Christmas Tree, brought by the Baby Jesus, at nightfall, when the Christmas Tree is lit for the first time. They go to Midnight Mass together. People love Christmas Eve for its wonderful family reunions, and as a celebration of the birth of Jesus. The mood is gentle, loving, grateful.

    Why has this Christmas not survived in the Anglosphere? Can we not go quietly about reviving it? We do not have to rely on schools for nativity plays (these days banned anyway for not being inclusive) that prepare our children for Christmas. We could organise them through our parish churches. Those are the places we can still rely on for the preservation of Christianity. (The cathedrals are now a write-off.) We should return to them, to defend our Christian heritage.

      Christmas is not a real/biblical-Christian festival (the baby Jesus is God but is too young to speak or teach), it does to a small degree remind our worldly fellow TRUE-Israelites of their (Caucasian-European) nations’ Christian heritage (We were Pagan for 1000+ years). Hence the ‘anti-Christians’ (defined exclusively in St John’s short epistles) are trying to change Christmas to an even more heathen festival of Hanukkah.

      Many celebrating Christmas, will be unaware of the evil symbolism used to supplant (and mock) Christ as the focus of attention, e.g:
      1. predominance of the colour red, which is Esau-Edom (see Christian Identity literature), the first promoters of Communism and Global Debt-Usury Casino Capitalism (not honest money & profit).
      2. Santa is an anagram of Satan.
      3. When Santa says Ho, Ho, Ho, this is code for 666, Revelation’s ‘mark of the beast’. There are 6 letters between the “H” and the “O”. The Ho is said three times and is therefore saying 666. (It also computes and foresees the Papacy.)
      4. The “Claus” part of Santa’s name is an anagram of Lucas – meaning light – the illuminated one, Lucifer.
      5. Father Christmas (call no one father, but your heavenly Father) is said to be based on St. Nicholas, from whence we get Nick – Old Nick, another name for the Devil!

      The anti-Christs see Christmas as the greatest money making period of the year, with everyone being encouraged to buy tatty presents which they often can’t afford (even more lovely enslaving debt) for all their family and friends, which was never the case in days gone by, when it was restricted to a few small presents to the children only.

    And yes, Christianity remains in their crosshairs.

    Does one ever wonder or ask themselves if so much of Christianity and especially Catholicism didn’t go around bashing the Jews over the head about Deicide maybe we would have a different story and a much better relationship with these people. I hate it whenever I come across any talk about Deicide because what never gets mentioned are the very words of Christ regarding it!!! Namely:

    The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.” John 10:17,18

    It was impossible for anyone to kill Christ. The entire story of the Garden of Gethsemane reveals this in full vivid color and prose! Just the fact when they asked Jesus if he was the one they were looking for and he said “I am” what happened? They fell backwards and not on of them could lay a hold of him! No one! Not until Christ said to them ‘take me’ and ‘what you are going to do quickly’ could they have laid a hand on him!!! What people never hear is that at that very moment all of human history and our very existence stood in the balance. If Jesus so desired he could have ended the world right then and there period! He could have without so much as breaking a sweat picked Caesar up off his off his throne with his thumb and forefinger and throw him clear out into the street and then lock the palace doors behind him!

    St. Paul also made it 100 percent clear too:

    None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Cor. 2:8

    The Jews had no idea in the world who Jesus was not one of them. In fact the only one who did and even he didn’t really understand it all was St. Peter! The very one who said to Christ that he would never be killed such foolish talk and Jesus rebuked him accordingly!

    What Jews need to hear is not the bashing over the head that they are responsible for his killing but rather as again Paul says Christ the power and the wisdom of God!!!

    Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 1 Cor. 1:22-24

    This is what is missing and dam the Catholics for this and anyone else who is ignorant of the teachings of the bible really!

    Christmas has arrived so read this and think hard and long about this Christ!!!!!

    the story of Charles Finney:

    “During the summer of 1853 Oberlin was struck with a severe drought. The hay fields were dried up so there was no feed for the cattle. The cattle soon must die and the harvest fail unless rain comes. Crops had withered, wells dried up, and the parched earth became powdery.
    On Sunday morning the church was filled. Not a cloud was in sight and no one expected a drop of water to fall from the skies that day. The situation was desperate. Finney arose from his chair walked to the pulpit and lifted his voice in prayer.
    “O Lord! Send us rain. We pray for rain. Our harvests perish. There is not a drop for the thirsting birds. The ground is parched. The choking cattle lift their voices toward a brassy heaven and lowing, cry ‘Lord give us water… We do not presume to dictate to Thee what is best for us, yet Thou dost invite us to come to Thee as children to a father and tell Thee all our wants. We want rain! Even the squirrels in the woods are suffering for want of it. Unless Thou givest us rain our cattle must die… O Lord, send us rain! and send it now! For Jesus sake!’ Amen.”
    “In the preacher’s voice,” reports the California minister, “was the plaintiveness of a creature’s cry. I do not know whether any pencil caught more of this wonderful prayer, but all who heard it had to tell of its bold importunity. It had the pathos and power of an Isaiah.”
    Then the pastor-revivalist poured out his soul in a searching sermon, “hewing close to the line,” from the text, “I have somewhat against thee because thou hast left thy first love.”
    “Not many minutes did the sermon go on before a cloud about the size of a man’s hand came athwart the summer sky,” says the California preacher. “It grew fast. The wind rattled the shutters of the old church. Darkness came on the air, joy aroused our anxious hearts as great raindrops pattered on the sun-scorched shingles of the monumental old church. Finney’s lithe figure, tall as a Sioux warrior, ruddy as a David, trembled. His clarion voice choked. God had heard his cry. The sermon was never finished, for torrents of water poured from the prayer-unlocked heavens. The preacher bowed over the pulpit and said, Let us thank the Lord for the rain.”
    He gave out the hymn, When all they mercies, O my God my rising soul surveys, Transported with the view, I’m lost in wonder, love and praise.
    The congregation could not sing for weeping. Then Finney lifted heavenward a prayer of thanksgiving and praise. “I can remember not a word of the closing prayer, but the reverent and relaxed figure, the pathetic voice, the pallid and awe-struck countenance, are vivid as if it was yesterday; the plank sidewalks of the dear old town splashed our garments as we walked home from a short service, of which life’s memory must be lasting.” This is the testimony of the student who sat in the gallery and saw and heard Finney that morning.”

    Now let’s look at what happened to the Moravian Church in Germany under the leadership of Count Nicholas von Zinzendorf:

    “…and verily the 13th of August was a day of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We saw the hand of God and His wonders, and we were all under the cloud of our fathers baptized with their Spirit. The Holy Ghost came upon us and in those days great signs and wonders took place in our midst. From that time, scarcely a day passed but what we beheld His almighty workings among us. A great hunger after the Word of God took possession of us so that we had to have three services every day, viz., 5:00 and 7:30 A.M. and 9 P.M. Everyone desired above everything else that the Holy Spirit might have full control. Self-love and self-will as well as all disobedience disappeared and an overwhelming flood of grace swept us all out into the great ocean of Divine Love…
    Exactly what happened at Wednesday forenoon, August 13th, 1727 in the specially called Communion service at Berthelsdorf, none of the participants could fully describe. They left the house of God that noon “hardly knowing whether they belonged to earth or had already gone to heaven.”…

    How we have villains such as John Hagee seducing Christians, at least unlearned Christians into, for all intents and purposes, worshiping the MURDERERS of Christ and His followers.

    As Christ said to the Jews:
    You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

    For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men.
    I Thessalonians 2:14-15

    The evil ones STOLE our people’s inventions and turned them into weapons against us.

    They INTEND the genocide of the White race, make NO mistake about it.

    No other mythology so reeks of an insane lust to torture, to kill, to destroy, to create only desolation and nothingness. And this spiritual force has characterized the activities of the Jews throughout history: they can only destroy. And the few Jews to whom we should be profoundly grateful, notably Marcus Eli Ravage, Oscar Levy, and Maurice Samuel, have been so candid as to tell us the truth explicitly: “We are intruders, we are subverters.”–”We Jews…today are nothing else but the world’s seducers, its destroyers, its incendiaries, its executioners.”–”We Jews, we the destroyers, will remain destroyers forever.”

    This is a cardinal fact that we must take into account in our estimates of the present. It is obvious that the Jews derive great profits from the many forms of subversion–from pornography and the incitement to degeneracy, from class warfare, from wars between nations of our race, from the inflation of counterfeit currencies and the impoverishment of our people, and from many similar activities. (5) But it we consider such things from the standpoint of the race, not from the standpoint of the individual Jew who battens on us, is it not likely that the material profit counts for much less than the spiritual satisfaction? And if we consider some of the Jew’s work, I cannot see how it could conceivably yield a net profit. What monetary gain can they have obtained, or intended to obtain, by spending vast sums to incite the (blacks) to rape, murder, and arson? What profit from destroying civilization in Rhodesia and making that land again a land of savages? What can the Jews in South Africa gain in material terms from their present intensive effort to destroy the white population and make of that country another Rhodesia? Is it not obvious that they could squeeze much more money out of the White population by peaceful parasitism and without inciting the racial hatreds that disrupt the economy and could conceivably bring retribution upon themselves? The only explanation, it seems to me, is that with their race as a whole spiritual considerations are paramount, paramount over profit and even over self-preservation. One can foresee the logical end in a future that may not be too distant: one can see the last Jews dying with exultation on the surface of a planet from which they have exterminated all other human beings, all animal, all vegetation, all life–a planet of which they have made “a desolation of desolations.”

    The main trick of the Left involves the rhetorical nullification of reality so that its adherents can promote personal subjective fantasy as a substitute. As such it is a mistake to argue seriously with leftists of any stripe. Not only must we double down on the incontrovertible fact that there is a War on Christmas, but it must be declared that such war is purely Christophobic in nature, a violation of First Amendment freedoms, an exercise of vitriolic racism against European Americans (or Canadians), and that any and all attempts to deny the facticity of the War should be considered tantamount to an illegal conspiracy subject to prosecution by Law. Nothing else works against the Left. It understands and fears power in the same way that criminals only fear power. We cannot allow the Left to substitute its hateful paranoid versions of false reality to overwhelm objectivity in the same way that we do not allow criminals to define our criminal justice system.

    Trump just set the legal foundation for the TRIBULATION you all chatter about.
    Crosses on Churches ALREADY “offend” Jews . … so do Nativities, Carols, Trees …. Where do you think the “War on CHRISTmas” originates? Jews refuse to acknowledge Jesus or the NEW Testament and Trump just handed them the weapon to attack.
    Talk about “War on Christmas” … Like King Herod attempting to murder the Baby Jesus, King Trump has launched an attack on CHRISTianity by Officially Legalizing the elevation of Judaism ABOVE Christ, just 13 DAYS before CHRISTmas.

    Trump To Sign Order Recognizing Jews As A Nationality, Protected Class
    WASHINGTON (JTA) — President Donald Trump will sign an executive order recognizing Jewish university students as a class protected from discrimination.
    The order, to be signed Wednesday, according to The New York Times, leapfrogs bipartisan legislation in Congress that would do the same thing. The signing of the order will coincide with the White House Hanukkah parties.
    According to The Times, the order will effectively interpret Judaism as a nationality, not just a religion, to trigger a federal law penalizing colleges and universities deemed to be shirking their responsibility to foster an open climate for minority students, according to the officials, who insisted on anonymity to discuss the matter before the announcement.

      The Jewish lawyers may hang themselves. Anti Semites have always said that Jews must be understood, not as citizens who just happen to be Jewish, but as a nation unto themselves within a nation. In other words, potential traitors, Jews themselves wanted to avoid this judgement
      by being understood by the public not as a nation but as a religion despite their increasing secularization and despite their only nominally accepting gentile converts. Now Trump and Jared have just legitimatized the anti semite understanding of “the Jews” We will see if this has eventual consequences beyond Trump and Jared’s very Talmudic manipulation of legalities and words to achieve a philosemetc end.

        Achilles Wannabe: Well said. I don’t see how the Jews gain from this move by Trump.

        Anti-Israel diaspora Palestinian groups in the U.S. can claim that they are a “nation” as well.

        Boycotting Israel is a free speech issue. The Supreme Court is unlikely to allow people who participate in the BDS movement to be penalized. The Jews must know this. Their need to subvert outweighs their ability to reason.

        Trump’s move could lead, in a future administration, to an official census count of Jews in the U.S. — something the Jews have always opposed.

        I think there are more of them than people realize. They seem to be everywhere.

          Some Jews are already saying that this decision will mean that they will soon “be wearing yellow stars”. Of course that is just the ultimate lachrymose framework Jews will always use but I think these Jews – and not Jared’s crowd = are the smart Jews. They are getting the possible implications of official recognition of Jews as Jews. I think Jews are most powerful and secure when they are heard or felt but not seen. Anything that calls attention to “the Jews” as a class works for us – eventually

        Oh, Christianity didn’t do so bad in the Middle Ages. Traditional Catholicism was sometimes willing to put a collar on the money changers. Calvin let them loose and the rest was Usury

          There was quite a trade in fake relics, and it still continues sadly with the bit of wood from the Holy Manger that recently appeared on TV. The Lance of Longinus, like the Ark of the Covenant, plays its part in modern anti-Nazi fantasy.

    By the way …. there is a National Menorah …. where is the National NATIVITY?
    Christmas Trees are merely ORNAMENTS.

    The nativity scene that had been in place every year in Santa Monica for nearly 6 decades is no longer and has been banned. No problem for the Jews as they hold their annual Channukah celebrations that continue for nine days within the area. They have taken over a large part of 3rd street promenade with their stage and their giant menorah, where they give away free dreidels to the children. There are also 50 menorahs all over Los Angeles just in case you should miss any of the others.
    DEC. 22, 1987 San Diego: The city attorney’s ruling, prompted by inquiries from the Jewish Community Relations Committee, was recently modified to allow the creche to be displayed only IF OTHER cultural and religious symbols could be displayed along with it, including a menorah. Simmons said.“It made people curious. They get to find out about our holiday as well,” she said. “It made everybody a lot closer!

    Santa Monica 2012:The Santa Monica City Council has banned all future nativity, anti-nativity and Chanukah displays at the oceanfront Palisades Park. The 5-0 vote on June 12 ends a nearly 60-year winter tradition.
    They are just incapable of leaving Christians to celebrate Christmas openly in any religious form whatsoever
    The United Kingdom and the rest of Europe will soon follow suit.

    It should be noted that the first war on Christmas in America was waged by the Pilgrims who landed on Plymouth Rock. As strict Puritans, they (correctly) considered Christmas to be a pagan festival co-opted by the Roman Catholic Church, and Puritans certainly wanted nothing to do with paganism — or the Roman Catholic Church and its pagan rituals! Plus they considered Christmas to be a rowdy, drunken, riotous celebration with nothing holy about it. People caught celebrating Christmas were punished. The Pilgrims worked on Christmas as on any other day, except the sabbath. The New England Puritans continued to frown on Christmas well into the 18th century.

      Religious people are like other kinds — they have their good points and bad points . The White European pagan day of Santa Claus is one of the most civilized cultural events the world has ever known . The pagan Santa Claus day could always stand on its own merits without being christianized . The Puritans were extremely irrational on that issue .

      This “letter” from Pontius Pilate (not Pilot) is no more genuine than the “Letter of Lentulus”, and is more self-evidently fake.

    Imagine being a detective at the scene of a murder when someone shows up to loudly protest that there’s absolutely no connection at all between the murder and pastafarians; indeed, only an anti-spaghettite could propose a conspiracy theory that a pastafarian broke into the victim’s home at exactly 2:43 AM and shot him twice in the upper back with a stolen Glock 19. Rosenberg is protesting a little too much, I think.

    Around Christmas I happened to come across two scenes from anime where it’s explicitly stated that Christmas is the birthday of Christ. In one of them it’s only mentioned in passing, but in the other it’s part of a joke that accidentally describes the situation in the West. Two devils (Vignette and Satania) and an angel (Raphiel) are preparing a Christmas cake while waiting for a second angel (Gabriel). When Raphiel places a cross on the cake, the dim-witted Satania is on the verge of recalling something very important about Christmas (what could it be?), but is distracted by Vignette. When they hear that Gabriel will arrive shortly, Raphiel declares that soon they can all celebrate the birth of their Lord. Satania, who is dressed as a red-nosed reindeer, suddenly remembers: she isn’t a reindeer, and Christmas isn’t just about eating cake and partying, it’s also… but before she can say it, Vignette forcefully cuts her off, determined to ignore what Christmas really is.

    What made it especially funny to me was that I had just seen a video by Blackpilled where he points out that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer wasn’t just written by a Jew but is also a thinly veiled Jewish allegory (it really is). And here’s Satania, dressed as a red-nosed reindeer and belatedly realizing the terrible truth that Christmas was a Christian holiday all along. But she shouldn’t bring it up.
