UPDATED July 25th As Israel is under siege from HAMAS rockets, otherwise politically vocal anti-Israel ‘Jewish’ genre folk see no evil from HAMAS. Then again they are anti-Israel…

This article may be updated (multiple times) when and if I feel like addressing Jew-hate Tweets and the like from Jew-hate genre liberals, on this latest war/jihad against the Jew nation. Latest updates 24th July and 25th July. Scroll to the bottom for the Felix Gilman Tweets (July 25th update).

So the latest jihad against the Jews gets underway, initiated by the Left’s fellow anti-Zionists, the HAMAS jihadist terrorist group whose charter calls for the liquidation of all Jews everywhere. Ably supported by Israel’s “peace partner”, the Holocaust Denier who heads Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas, who has recently welcomed Hamas itself into a unity Palestinian Authority government (what makes him Israel’s peace partner I guess). A joint Fatah-Hamas unity government that is thus jointly responsible for daily waves of rocket attacks on Jewish towns, cities, farms and the like, targeting Jewish men, women, children and babes for death and maiming, rocket attacks that now reach Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. In fact Fatah rocket crews have been operating in Gaza, not just Hamas and other jihadist groups. This is the Fatah-Hamas unity government that Obama and Kerry continue to insist is a peace partner for Israel and that US taxpayers and the EU continue to fund. That’s what makes Obama, Kerry and the entire US administration utterly delusional, it’s also definitive confirmation that they are Jew-haters. Thanks US Jews for overwhelmingly voting for a horribly anti-Semitic US administration, and that includes liberal US genre Jewry. If I hadn’t told you before: fuck you and keep your children safe.

In fact as I predicted here, the farcical peace talks with Jew-hating Muslim fanatics (Fatah) pushed on Israel by the Jew-hating Kerry and his boss, could only lead to a new round of jihadist initiated violence. Journalist Ruthie Blum points out all this over here.

So as liberal TA Jews run for the bomb shelters as rockets explode overhead (so far intercepted by Iron Dome but watch for that shrapnel), as Jerusalem comes under fire, and especially southern cities like Sderot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, even Beersheba come under sustained rocket fire; the world, the UN, many Muslim nations (thankfully not all), the Western media, the NY Times, and the Israel hating Western Left (so-called human rights groups included), inclusive of the Israel-hating ‘Jewish’ far Left, respond in their knee-jerk Pavlovian manner, the only way Jew-haters can respond, with Jew-hatred that is. Evil Israel, how dare you do anything to fight back against jihadist rocket fire, how dare you. Palestinian civilians are getting killed, sure they are used as human shields by Hamas, which openly boasts about doing such a thing, a war crime according to international humanitarian law. A war crime that Hamas proudly and cynically commits, a war crime that we will blame on Israel; and ignore the other war crime of Hamas, the one that started this war in the first place. That is the targeting of Jews for death with rockets (3.5 million Israelis, Arabs among them, are in direct line of fire of Hamas rockets, many obtained from Syria and Iran, especially the new long-range ones). That’s different of course. War crimes committed by Hamas and Fatah are not war crimes, since their targets are Jews. Jews are expendable, unlike the lives of precious Hamas rocket crews.

Hamas have even targeted the Dimona nuclear reactor! Responses from Obama, the UN and the usual suspects is as you would expect…. crickets. Yawn, it’s all interrupting Obama’s game of golf one supposes. As far as our anti-Israel genre folk are concerned, the silence is deafening. When not worse than silence… These guys couldn’t spell HAMAS if their lives depended on it, then again HAMAS and Fatah are their fellow anti-Zionists… Crickets on the Twitter feeds from the anti-Israel genre folk is to be expected, they are anti-Israel after all. So duh I guess. Thing is it would be no problem if they say/Tweet nothing at all, if they were never political to begin with; but they are always political, all of the time pretty much, on pretty much everything. Except Hamas rocket attacks on Jews and for that matter Muslim jihad attacks, bombings, massacres on their fellow Arabs, Muslims and the infidels, from Syria, Iraq to Afghanistan, Libya and Mali, from Somalia to Lebanon and Nigeria, Yemen to Kashmir.

Truth is our harshly anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian genre Jews such as Charles Stross, Lavie Tidhar, Felix Gilman, Nir Yaniv, Laura Anne Gilman, Rose Fox, Farah Mendlesohn (check the archives of this blog) and other Court Jews such as Scott Edelman, and the king and queen of genre Court Jews, given that they are the President and VP of the SFWA itself, Steve Gould and Rachel Swirsky, have painted themselves into a corner. If they are going to Tweet on this, it has to be from a pro-Palestinian angle, along the lines of ‘the poor Palestinians, suffering at the hands of the Israelis’, obscenely ignoring the fact that Hamas started this war in the first place, with wave after wave of jihadist rocket attacks. It can never ever ever ever be from an anti-Hamas angle, because these anti-Israel Jews have thrown in their lot with the Hamas and Fatah supporting, Jew-hating Palestinians. The best they can do is prattle the odious moral equivalence baloney between Hamas, dedicated openly and proudly and for Allah’s sake, to another holocaust of millions of Jews, and the IDF itself, which is all  that stands between the Jews and another Holocaust (the kind of moral equivalence that moronic mantras such as ‘cycle of violence’ translate to. The kind of moral equivalence employed by Amnesty International). And yes such odious moral equivalence is likewise anti-Jewish agitprop. And if you don’t know why, well that’s your problem.

In fact Israel’s Israel hating Tel Aviv based liberal Ha’Aretz newspaper (the Israeli equivalent of the anti-Semitic NY Times) has been carrying pro-Palestinian propaganda, even as Tel Aviv is under rocket fire. Even as the Ha’Aretz building itself is now in the line of rocket fire, even as ‘the bubble’ of Tel Aviv is burst, these self-loathing morons remain mired in their self-loathing. NO MATTER WHAT. They are still frothing about West Bank settlements, still, as if that’s what is causing rocket fire from Judenrein Gaza. Yes these liberal ‘Jews’ are insane. What else is new? I wonder whether Tel Avivian pro-Palestinian Nir Yaniv (a big cheese in Israeli SF, well it’s a small small pond. Yaniv is a big mate and co-author of Lavie “the Palestinians have become the true Jews” Tidhar) is giving thanks to Iron Dome, which is literally saving lives in the Tel Aviv environs as I write this; and the soldiers, technicians and engineers employed by the Israeli government and IDF (I assume his mate Tidhar’s ‘fake Jews’ by corollary) to operate that system and ensure its efficient functioning, or maybe he thinks it’s the fairies operating it. Maybe he’s cursing the eeeeeeeeevil settlers as he runs for a bomb shelter (assuming he does run to a shelter, I mean I don’t know or give a fig really), doubt he curses Hamas (supported by his mate Tidhar’s “true Jews” aka the Palestinians). Even now.

And then there’s that other Tel Avivian Abigail Nussbaum, genre critic and reviewer, who has plenty to say on Elizabeth Moon’s ‘Islamophobia’, but gushes over Jew-haters, such as the late Iain Banks and China Mieville (check the archives of this blog for the details). I know what I’m dealing with here, far Left and even some mainstream liberal Israeli Jews are sick, mentally ill. Literally and I don’t exaggerate at all. Imagine even The NY Times running pro Al-Qaeda propaganda the week of 9-11, or pro-Nazi propaganda in 1944. Ha’Aretz and liberal Jews are under no such qualms, it’s anti-Israel propaganda all of the time. If Dimona were hit, would Ha’Aretz blame the settlements, even as their anti-Israel ‘journalists’ were dying from radiation fallout? Don’t bet against it.

The thing is by not Tweeting at all on the latest conflict, the likes of the ‘Jewish’ Stross and the ‘Jewish’ Tidhar are… well it’s kind of deafening in its silence SO FAR, not just that, but there’s a kind of awkwardness there, an embarrassment. What to Tweet? I mean they couldn’t Tweet support for Israel and the Jews under siege, because they are anti-Israel, so that’s out of the question. It’s not just that they would offend their anti-Semitic fan club and their anti-Semitic colleagues (Paul Graham Raven, China Mieville, Ken MacLeod, Michael Cobley, Hal Duncan, Nick Mamatas, Saladin Ahmed etc. Well pretty much the ANTI-ISRAEL genre Left as a whole on both sides of the Atlantic), they would offend their own self-loathing and self-flagellating sensibilities. The smartest thing to do here would be just to continue Tweeting the usual trivial garbage that they always Tweet. And that’s what they are doing. Predictably enough. Now that may not seem offensive at all, I mean if they are not Tweeting anti-Israel propaganda… . And yet it still is offensive. That’s because they have never had any problem Tweeting and pontificating (in blogs and other avenues) outrageous anti-Israel garbage before (as the archives of this blog reveal). So it’s their disgusting, albeit fashionable, modern day record of new anti-Semitism as anti-Israelism that damns them now. No matter what they do. Short of a U-Turn in their ideology, and that ain’t gonna happen.

So the least offensive thing they can do is shut up. And yet it’s still insulting. Because they have never shut up before, when it comes to their love affair with Palestinians and their contempt for the Jewish homeland. So now their silence in the face of the latest round of ‘let’s kill the Jews in the name of Allah and blame the Jews when it all goes wrong’ is like staying silent as the Nazis came to power in Europe in the 1930s and were passing anti-Jewish legislation and the rest. It’s just cowardly, the silence on the elephant in the room that is Hamas’s and Fatah’s i.e. the Palestinians’ war against the Jews; when at the same time these liberal genre Jews have had no problem tweeting/blogging and spouting anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian agitprop before. Year in and year out.

Of course, they can do even worse than that, they can Tweet/blog anti-Israel propaganda as Israel is under siege, under rocket attacks across the south and center of that tiny nation. The thing is whatever they do (short of a religious like conversion, that is an abrupt and radical departure from their entire previously held political Weltanschauung. And that would be a miracle), they are damned by their record of anti-Israelism i.e. anti-Semitism.

Here though is a curious recent Tweet (July 11th/12th) from the anti-Semitic Israeli writer and editor Lavie Tidhar:

“One day, this war will be over. And we’ll have the merchandising rights.”

Note the non-condemnatory nature of the Tweet, it’s ‘war’, as if it just happens, one of those things, it’s not HAMAS, it’s not Muslim extremism, and it’s all so hahaha, let’s make a joke of it. Is anybody going to object, that Tidhar’s Tweet is not made taking into consideration the latest war in the Middle-East? That would be disingenuous. Tidhar’s ‘fake Jews’ aka Israeli Jews (implicit in Tidhar’s calling Palestinians “the true Jews”. Check link above for the details) take cover in bomb shelters, or get called up to serve in the IDF (an oppressive institution to Tidhar), as his “true Jews” aka the Palestinians launch wave after wave of rockets targeting ‘the fake Jews’ in their homes, factories, malls, offices, kindergartens, schools, highways, streets, restaurants, farms, parks etc.

Tidhar would predictably do worse, with this inevitable Jew-hate Tweet of his from July 22nd (I updated this article on July 24th, some time after my initial comments on Tidhar above. Sooooo predictable. Jew-haters gonna Jew hate):

Sayed Kashua’s “Why I Have To Leave Israel”, now in the Guardian

If you can stomach that Jew-hate selective moral outrage and lying hypocritical article of Arab-Israeli Sayed Kashua’s, go ahead and read it. Naturally it comes from the Jew-hating Guardian of which the anti-Semitic ‘Jew’ Tidhar is a fan. Of course. It also featured at the traitorous Ha’Aretz. Thanks for leaving Israel Sayed, the less Jew-haters (Arab and ‘Jewish’ Jew-haters such as Tidhar, alike) in Israel the better. Murderous and serious ‘Death to Arabs’ hate from Jews is thankfully rare in Israel (and these morons spouting out that garbage don’t know the difference between Arabs and Muslim extremism, not all Arabs are Muslims, never mind Muslim extremists), and not promulgated by the government, armed forces, media, synagogues, schools and Israeli institutions. ‘Death to Jews’ is however endemic in Palestinian society and Arab Muslim Middle-Eastern society. It’s on the Hamas charter, endemic to Fatah and its Holocaust Denying president Abbas who praises suicide bombers as martyrs for Allah; it’s in the Arab and Palestinian media, the mosques, schools where Jews are explicitly labeled as subhuman. And it’s the mentality that engendered the current Hamas terrorist war to begin with, that motivated Hamas to fire rockets at Israeli towns, cities, farms, schools, kindergartens, parks, boulevards, buildings, malls (and our international airport) every day during the war and dig tunnels into Israel in its attempt to infiltrate and kill as many Israeli civilians as they could. Palestinians have celebrated suicide bombings, 9-11, terrorist attacks on Jews, kidnappings of Jews. Hamas have planned to plant bombs underneath kindergartens in the tunnels they dug into Israel (this is discovered at the same time Kashua pens his article, but you know that don’t fit his narrative. And Tidhar’s neither), they have hid behind women and children when fighting the IDF, threaten journalists for reporting the fact that Hamas is firing rockets from next to a hospital and other civilian buildings, homes, and storing rockets at mosques and UNWRA schools (that’s plural) and as I write this up, they were firing mortar rounds at an Israeli field hospital at the Erez border crossing into Gaza treating Palestinian civilian wounded (wounded from use as Hamas human shields, and from Hamas rockets and even mortar rounds that have fallen short and landed in Gaza, on their own Arab population).

You won’t hear any of this (and way more atrocities of Hamas’s that I don’t even bother to mention) from Kashua any more than you will hear it from Tidhar, deafening silence, and for one reason only. Jew-hatred pure and simple. So Kashua is emigrating to America it would appear, well given the growing Jew-hatred there, I’m sure he’ll feel at home. A win for Israel, a loss for America. Tidhar is comfortable among the Jew-hating liberal pseudo-intellectual elite in London. Stay there. Please.

At the time of Tidhar’s latest Jew-hate Tweet that I paste above (22nd July), about thirty IDF soldiers have been killed in Gaza fighting Hamas terrorists hiding behind civilians. Tidhar would never Tweet in sympathy for the fallen Israeli soldiers (hardly!) and their grieving families, and the Israeli nation and world Jewry that grieves for them. After all the best of the best (IDF’s elite combat units) are all that stand between the Jews and another Holocaust, and just general mass murder of Israeli civilians. It’s why Jew-hating liberals hate the IDF so much, the same reason Muslim extremists and neo-Nazis do, the IDF gets in the way of mass murder of Israeli civilians. Tidhar’s Jew-hatred it is clear is every bit as bad as anybody’s I have criticized at this blog, including China Mieville, Anna Tambour, Charles Stross, Kathryn Cramer, Farah Mendlesohn, Michael Bishop, Ken MacLeod and Nick Mamatas. That is saying a lot. Tidhar’s self-loathing is as extreme and as hardcore as it gets. Let me be clear: there are lots of Jews like this, including in Tidhar’s native Israel. Yes it is very distressing and to Israel supporting Gentiles (and many Jews coming to think of it), even incomprehensible. It isn’t incomprehensible though, but I don’t bother going into the complex roots of such psychopathology at this blog. Scholars on anti-Semitism have written and continue to write about it, some with more insight than others of course.

Tidhar has gotten the support of the genre far Left as a whole in his clashes with myself (well duh) including the ‘Jews’ Rose Fox, Laura Anne Gilman, Scott Edelman, Felix Gilman, Charles Stross and Nir Yaniv (all in the archives). Does this mean they are all anti-Semitic? Yeah pretty much.

Here is Jew-hater, genre communist writer and editor Nick “Butt-fucking is just mentorship between a man and a child” Mamatas (not Jewish), a big mate of Tidhar’s, with a predictable Jew-hate tweet (that he retweeted):

‘…the 12,000 missiles fired from Gaza over twelve years resulted in twenty-two fatalities—a kill rate of 0.175%.’

Gee are you disappointed that not more Jews have been killed by your fellow anti-Zionists HAMAS, Fatah and Islamic Jihad terrorists firing rockets, Mamatas and crew? Hey what about property damage? If more Jews were killed, would you sympathize with them then, Nick Mamatas? Of course not. Your stats ignore Jews maimed and wounded btw. Those deaths would be far higher if Jews weren’t taking cover in bomb shelters, if rockets weren’t destroyed by Iron Dome and other missile defenses. There would be far more rockets penetrating Israeli airspace if not for the Israeli air force (that you despise so much Nick Mamatas), targeting and destroying rocket launchers, missile storage depots and related terrorist infrastructure. Are you upset that Hamas and their jihadist allies fire rockets blind? The fact that the Palestinians are at war with the Jews is why you sympathize with them so much to begin with, Mamatas and gang, however you may vehemently deny and lie about it. It’s why we have this war, this jihad to begin with. And you expect and demand, still, that the Jews/Israel abandon the West Bank to the self-same Fatah-Hamas entity that is firing rockets from Gaza! That doesn’t just make you and your ilk naive, it is way worse than that. It means that you support a policy that would see way way more rockets come in from the West Bank onto Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem etc. That’s the reality. What Jew-haters these communists and Leftists are. If only they were honest about it, like their fellow anti-Zionists (Mamatas is a self-admitted anti-Zionist) the neo-Nazis, and Hamas itself, Fatah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the anti-Zionist Al-Qaeda, ISIS, the Iranian regime, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood (who founded Hamas), Boko Haram and all Muslim extremists everywhere.

Anti-Semite, the ‘Jewish’ Charles Stross  has been Tweeting harmless stuff the last few days, jokey stuff on dentures, the penalties for gun trafficking in the US, some tweets on UK and Scottish politics (Cameron, and Scottish National Party related) and genre related stuff. No anti-Semitic Tweets from him that I picked up. So far. [I wrote this on July 12th. It does not refer to his Tweeting after that date. I have too little time to read up on this moron’s Twitter feed all the time (and others). And naturally I can’t be bothered most often enough] The thing is, as I write and allude to above, Stross is so very political (he always tweets political stuff, he can’t help it); so it’s telling when the’ human rights’ obsessed ‘Jew’ is silent on rocket attacks every day, every hour pretty much, targeting Jews in the Jewish homeland for death and maiming, rockets that now reach deeper and further into Israel than ever before. In other words, he ain’t no Jew at all. Not in any meaningful sense. As if one didn’t know that already!

I mean if he wasn’t so political to start with, it would be fine. No problem. Thing is he is so political, so his silence is embarrassing, it says more about him than he could ever know. One senses a kind of awkwardness, a stifled sense of something… Of course Stross could do way worse, he could Tweet anti-Semitic gibberish (as a matter of interest here is Stross’s viciously anti-Semitic comrade Max Blumenthal – as this blog article of mine reveals, Stross is on board with Blumenthal’s Israel hatred – at a hardcore Jew-hate rally in New York city the other day. One can hear ‘death to Israel’ chants among the crowd, the same crowd dear Max B was addressing. More sickening details at the linked JPost article. Here as a matter of further interest, is Stross in friendly political Twitter banter with Mira Bar-Hillel, an odious and in-your-face anti-Semitic Jewess). He could put himself out there and do that, and that is what his fellow Jew-hating ‘Jewish’ Brit genre colleague does… Like Pavlov’s dogs, this one is so super predictable. Ring the bell (HAMAS starts a war with Israel. Again), and this one comes running with her Jew-hatred (Twitter response).

It’s from a twit supreme, a caricature of a hardcore Jew-hating ‘Jewish’ left-wing academic…

Here is the horribly anti-Semitic Tweet, entirely predictable, from the extremely anti-Semitic ‘Jewess’, genre editor and critic Farah Mendlesohn (that she retweeted) from July 11th:

As usual, people are getting more upset about verbal attacks on than actual physical attacks against Palestinians. Shameful.

I think the mental derangement of Farah M is hard to beat, even by the standards of self-hating Jewdom. What physical attacks on Palestinians? Does she mean the air force strikes on Hamas rocket launchers, and infrastructure; or does she mean the abuse of a single border policeman beating up an Arab teen? Does she mean the murder of an Arab youngster from Jerusalem, by a handful of Jewish extremists acting on their own? You know amidst the horror of mass murder and maiming from Syria to Nigeria, Iraq to Somalia, Libya to Uganda. And Farah M can’t be bothered with any of that, that’s what makes her such a transparent anti-Semite. She can’t be bothered to even mention HAMAS. What a non-surprise. That’s what makes her such a self-hating Jew. Of course she can’t even be bothered to mention that civilians are openly and proudly used by Hamas as human shields, something many of the civilians support given their fanaticism. “Verbal attacks on Israel”!! How obscene. What else to expect? Didn’t know that hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of rocket attacks on Israeli civilians – men,women, children and babies – translate to “verbal attacks”!!

Homes have been hit, a gas station was hit in Ashdod the other day, and a disabled man was severely burned. Farah M may tell him not to feel so bad, it’s just a “verbal attack” one supposes. One that burns your body. So Iron Dome is taking out Palestinian “verbal attacks” over Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Sderot, Ashkelon, Eshkol, Rishon LeZion, Beersheba, Rehovot, even as far north as Herzliya, and other towns and communities across southern and central Israel. Israelis, millions of them, have been taking cover from “verbal attacks” I guess; “verbal attacks” targeting Joooos in apartment buildings, malls, parks, streets, boulevards, gas stations, houses, schools, kindergartens, kibbutzim, community halls, colleges etc. And “verbal attacks” targeting Israel’s nuclear reactor in Dimona! Also which people is Farah M talking about, “getting upset”? Who would that be? Certainly not the Jew-hating British elite, with which she is firmly ensconced. Not the Jew-hating UK media. Does she mean British Jews? What a twit.

In the approx. 48 hour period or so preceding and postdating Mendlesohn’s Tweet from July 11th, this is what Israel has suffered (my own comments interspersed therein are in red text): 

Saturday, July 12 1:10 p.m.  Rocket sirens were heard moments ago in Kerem Shalom, near the border with Gaza.

12:56 p.m.  Rocket sirens were activated moments ago in Ashkelon and the smaller towns and communities near the Gaza border.

11:30 a.m.  Rocket sirens were heard in Ashkelon as well as nearly a dozen other smaller communities near the Gaza frontier. 11:13 a.m.  Rocket sirens sound in the Gaza frontier kibbutz of Nir Oz.

9:55 a.m.  Residents of the Gaza border towns in the western Negev heard rocket sirens moments ago.

9:48 a.m.  An operations center housed in the Al-Faruk mosque in central Gaza, which was used to store rockets and other weapons, was struck by the IDF early on Saturday. The Israel Air Force struck 60 terror targets across Gaza overnight between Friday and Saturday, bringing the total number of targets hit to 1,160. Ten terrorist operatives were killed in air strikes, including six involved in rocket fire on Israel, the IDF said. A launcher in south Gaza used to fire on Beersheba overnight was also destroyed.

This of course the reality of Israel’s shameful “physical attacks on Palestinians”.

Navy ships struck several targets, including a Hamas observation post and a location used as a meeting point by Hamas and Popular Resistance Committees. Since Monday night, dozens of operational infrastructure sites used by senior Hamas and Islamic Jihad members have been destroyed, the IDF said. 9:30 a.m.  Palestinian officials in the Gaza Strip said at least 16 people were killed overnight Friday during Israeli airstrikes as Operation Protective Edge entered its fifth day. 3:55 a.m. 2 rockets landed in open fields outside of Beersheva while a third was intercepted by Iron Dome after Code Red sirens sounded in Beersheba and several other southern communities.

2:08 a.m. In the IDF’s fourth day of Operation Protective Edge 140 rockets were fired from Gaza and 27 of those were intercepted by Iron Dome batteries. 107 rockets hit Israeli soil. In response, 235 terror targets were struck in Gaza.

1:34 a.m. The IDF Spokesman’s office reported targeting several terrorists conspiring to launch rockets from Gaza.

9:39 p.m.  Two Israelis were injured when a Palestinian rocket struck a home in Beersheba. One of the injured, an 80-year-old woman, sustained injuries in the attack. She was rushed to Soroka Medical Center.

Part of the verbal assault on Israel, one assumes. I mean ask Farah M for a clarification if you so desire. On the other hand, don’t bother – red wolf.

9:17 p.m.  The Iron Dome system intercepted Palestinian rockets launched toward the coastal town of Herzliya. The interception occurred shortly after sirens were also activated in the town of Ness Ziona, near Rehovot.

9:13 p.m.  Palestinians in Gaza launched rockets toward central Israel moments ago. Residents of the Tel Aviv suburbs and greater Rehovot are strongly urged to seek shelter. 9:08 p.m.  Rocket sirens sounded in Beersheba, neighboring communities

9:07 p.m.  Amnesty International is demanding that the United Nations commission an independent panel to investigate possible war crimes by both Israel and Hamas. The organization released a statement urging the UN to investigate “violations committed on all sides amidst ongoing Israeli air strikes across the Gaza Strip and continuing volleys of indiscriminate rocket fire from Palestinian armed groups into Israel.”

Ah the Jew-hating Amnesty International with its moral equivalence between HAMAS and Israel. Amazed that they could even be bothered to mention HAMAS, they do one better than Farah Mendlesohn – red wolf.

8:55 p.m. The Iron Dome intercepted two rockets in the skies over Tel Aviv just moments after sirens wailed all across the city and in neighboring Holon. Residents of Tel Aviv reported hearing two loud explosions shortly after the sirens were activated. 8:39 p.m. Rocket sirens sound in the Hof Ashkelon regional council.

7:56 p.m.  Rocket sirens sound in Ashdod.

7:55 p.m.  Gaza residents told Channel 2 that they are fearful of the prospect of an Israeli ground invasion in the Hamas-ruled territory. Gazans told Channel 2 that the operations in 2008 and 2012 were “child’s play” compared to the amount of Israeli firepower unleashed these past four days.

Well then they shouldn’t start a war, by targeting Jews for death and maiming, you think? What comes first, the moronism and hypocrisy from Jew-haters, or their Jew-hatred per se? Hard to say.

7:45 p.m. Rocket sirens sound in towns near the Gaza border. 7:42 p.m.  Rocket sirens sound in Negev frontier towns. 7:34 p.m.  Rocket sirens sound in Beersheba, Ashkelon, and western Negev towns near Gaza border. 7:22 p.m. Rocket sirens sound in Sderot. Iron Dome intercepts rocket. 6:59 p.m. Rocket sirens sound in the Hof Ashkelon regional council. 6:42 p.m. Iron Dome intercepts Gaza rockets over the southern suburbs of Tel Aviv.

5:05 p.m.  Rocket sirens sound in Ashkelon.

5:03 p.m.  Egyptian authorities operating on the Sinai-Gaza border thwarted an attempt to smuggle advanced GRAD missiles into the peninsula, Israel Radio reported on Friday. According to Al-Ahram newspaper, Palestinians tried to smuggle 20 GRAD missiles into Sinai, from where it would then seek to launch them into Israel.

4:57 p.m.  Rocket sirens sound in frontier communities adjacent to Gaza border.

4:23 p.m.  The IDF killed a terrorist in Gaza it said was responsible for rocket fire on Israel in recent minutes. Since the morning, the IDF has killed seven Hamas terrorists and others involved in rocket fire, including two who belong to long-range rocket fire squads who were spotted en route to carrying out additional launches.

Such terrible physical assaults. Simply shameful. Ask Farah Mendlesohn.

He warned that the Gaza blockade and shortage of medical aid could lead lead to human catastrophe, adding that helping “the oppressed people of Palestine and preventing the Zionist regime from committing its atrocities are the common responsibility of all international organizations and freedom-loving countries.”

The fact that self-hating Jews such as Farah M are on the same side as the Muslim extremist Iranian president Rouhani is what makes them self-hating Jews. Pay no mind.

So we have these Jews running to and sheltering in bomb shelters, or whatever cover they can find, from rockets packed not with explosive warheads and ball bearings, but “verbal attacks” or some such. Just ask Farah Mendlesohn.

Amazing how verbal attacks can set a gas station on fire, and destroy homes and cars, kill cows and rain shrapnel down on a Tel Aviv synagogue. These Palestinians (Tidhar’s “true Jews” let’s not forget) have real magical powers. Like shamans or something. I mean the things that Palestinian verbal attacks can do. Shameful indeed Farah Mendlesohn. You have no idea. What’s Farah going to say in protest, that she didn’t mean the rocket attacks when she said “verbal attacks”? No she has nothing to say on the Palestinian jihadist rocket attacks at all. Every fucking hour of every day during this war so far. That’s the thing. What Palestinian rocket attacks? What jihad? What’s a jihad? Of course the real physical attacks i.e. terrorism and mass murder, torture and the like that Muslims visit on one another (women and children included) from Syria to Iraq, Libya to Somalia, Pakistan to Afghanistan, and Iran to Nigeria and the Sudan pass without comment from the likes of Farah Mendlesohn. And Tidhar and Stross and gang. Never mind HAMAS’s reign and rain of terror. Yes well in other news, scientists announce the sun is a giant ball of fire that gives light and creates and sustains life itself.

Here are 2 predictable Jew-hate Tweets from self-hating ‘Jewish’ genre writer Felix Gilman. (check that article for how he knocked my blog in the most oblivious and obscene way, such a reveal) Gilman tweets about a Palestinian ‘human rights leader’ without any sense of irony. Does he mean the human rights of jihadists to have protection and immunity from the IDF daring to strike at the jihadists, in a war the jihadists initiated with their waves and waves of rocket terror onto Israeli civilians (of which Gilman has nothing to say, that’s what among other things makes him such a self-hating Jew, since it is such transparent bias), or does he mean the rights of jihadists to protect themselves from the IDF, hiding behind women and children, as a consequence of the war they started? Or both?

The second Tweet I comment on below….

Palestinian human rights activist: “Cast Lead was a joke compared to this”

is this supposed to make the IDF look better

If you go to the Gilman linked official IDF Tweet on their official IDF Twitter Feed – PLEASE DO – it actually counts in the IDF’s favour! It’s why it’s a Tweet that has been mentioned quite a bit on the pro-Israel blogosphere! How does Gilman thinks it counts against the IDF and he clearly does, being such a hardcore Israel hater?! It’s simply bizarre, so warped and delusional and EXTREME is Gilman’s Israel-hatred, with all of the implications therein. I mean it’s an IDF Tweet pointing out, spelling out in plain English, that when they fired a warning shot at a building they were targeting in Gaza (clearly containing either HAMAS missiles or rockets, munitions or used for command and control purposes by HAMAS or being used by HAMAS terrorists), letting civilians know they need to get out, before an airstrike hits the building. The Palestinian civilians then storm to the roof of the building and bring their children (see the IDF Tweet, they have the picture). In other words a cynical and fanatical tactic to put the IDF off from firing at the building or face having to kill all of those people and the children, and in the process they all get martyrdom and a PR victory for HAMAS (evil Israel killed all those civilians, children included). So obviously the IDF aircraft puts off firing at the building and aborts its mission.

Does Gilman think they didn’t? Or does he think the IDF just love to target buildings packed with civilians, for no good reason other than some kind of bloodlust  for killing Palestinian civilians? Because it couldn’t naturally have been used by HAMAS in some way?

I mean does he think the IDF naturally bloodthirsty, primed for killing children? And then boasting about it on their official Twitter Feed!! For the whole world to see, because that would really be a propaganda victory for Israel, right!!?? WHAAAAT THE FUUUUUUUUCK. Who knows with Gilman, he appears to think that the IDF goes out of its way to fire on civilian dense infrastructure! Hopefully – but I can’t be sure here – Gilman realizes that the IDF really didn’t fire on the building anyway! He doesn’t realize whatsoever – clearly not – that it tells us that HAMAS goes out of its way to cynically employ very eager human shields. He clearly thinks, look at Israel, targeting a building packed and swarming with civilians and children! I mean what else to think here? Remember Gilman is hardcore anti-Israel. In that case: what a moron, what a Jew-hater.

To those of you compos mentis and not given to believing the kind of propaganda about the IDF one reads about on Muslim extremist, neo-Nazi and far Left Jew-hate ‘news’ sources, the whole point the IDF is making with THAT OFFICIAL TWEET is that the aircraft is  forced to abandon that specific bombing mission, abort it, because Palestinian civilians, in their frenzied fanaticism are eager – without a second thought – to die for HAMAS, and prepared for their children to die FOR Hamas! To go out of their way to die for HAMAS! And Gilman thinks this Tweet counts against the IDF! not the Palestinians!

It counts against the irrational death cult of HAMAS and its widespread support among Palestinian civilians in Gaza and their desire for their children to get martyrdom in the service of a genocidal Jew-hate jihadist terrorist organization. Another thing: which other modern air force anywhere in the world does such a thing, fire warning shots at legitimate terrorist targets from aircraft (what legitimate terrorist target thinks Gilman!) to avoid civilian casualties. And the only reason that there is a risk of civilian casualties is because HAMAS commits the war crime of stocking missiles, munitions, firing rockets etc. within and surrounding civilian infrastructure, deliberately and cynically. No other Air Force does such a thing, not the USAF, not the Royal Air Force, not the French Air Force, certainly not the Russian Air Force! None. Just the Israeli Air Force. That counts heavily in the IDF’s favour. That’s why that Tweet has been promoted on pro-Israel blogs and websites! Felix Gilman would then probably ‘think’ something along the lines of: well yes, goes to show just how bloodthirsty those Zionist warmongers are, boasting about targeting for death Palestinian civilians and their children!

There is a further Tweet of Gilman’s not long after, in which he retweets the self-same IDF Tweet, ’cause he can’t get over just how horrendous it is!! Yeah indeed, but not in the way Gilman remotely realizes. Sheeeeeeeeeesh. This is why it is a waste of time debating these liberal Jew-haters, it’s like they speak a language only schizophrenic peyote snorting Martians understand. You can only expose them for those who have eyes to see.

To Gilman that IDF Tweet however proves the evil of Israel and the goodness and innocence of the Palestinians. That’s what makes Gilman mentally deranged, delusional and as extreme in his modern-day Judenhass as Tidhar, Mieville, Tambour, Mendlesohn etc. (yes so many of them are Jewish!) So deep does Gilman’s Jewish self-loathing run, his deep seated and inflexible contempt for the Jew among the nations, that he commits some kind of self-lobotomization. Why would the IDF be targeting those civilians and their children he appears to ‘reason’!! They’re not you fucking moron, they are targeting HAMAS infrastructure and terrorists, that’s the whole point of the IDF Tweet which sails through the giant holes in Gilman’s head. And if he were to read this article of mine, I GUARANTEE you, he still won’t get it. He never ever ever ever will.

Of course it won’t surprise the *intelligent reader* that I couldn’t find in A SINGLE TWEET from Gilman (perusing his Twitter Feed) during the course of this current war, any actual condemnation of HAMAS for its firing of hundreds and hundreds of rockets onto Israeli civilian population centers, targeting residential buildings, airport, parks, offices, kindergartens, kibbutzes, factories, farms, schools, houses etc and the civilians in them (CHILDREN and BABIES included) for death and maiming. No mention of HAMAS’S terror tunnels and the rigged bombs discovered under kindergartens (he probably, in all likelihood doesn’t know nor would he want to. Doesn’t fit the narrative), and the tactical plans to kill hundreds and hundreds of kibbutzniks and other Jewish civilians neighbouring Gaza via massive Hamas terrorist assaults via the self-same tunnels (jihadist massacres of the kind seen in the luxury Kenyan mall massacre and the Beslan school massacre).

Jihadist terror attacks only prevented by the IDF that Gilman doesn’t even pretend to hide his contempt and disgust for. You know not a single Tweet on the Hamas terror attacks (the rockets) that initiated this war in the first place, the Hamas-Israel Gaza war that Gilman Tweets on, with such disdain and even darkly comical misunderstanding, against…. the Jooooo nation. That first Tweet of Gilman’s I don’t even bother to fisk, usual dishonest ‘why is Israel attacking us innocent Palestinians’ Jew-hate nonsense I can read about on the Jew-hate Guardian, Independent and the BBC, and their ilk around the world. It’s from a horribly anti-Semitic news source. Hardcore.

Here btw are Felix Gilman’s Tweets criticizing Boko Haram in Nigeria, the Muslim extremists who have killed over ten thousand in Nigeria over the last two decades. In the past year, on a more terrible scale than ever before, and they have murdered and maimed hundreds in the last month or so. (click on the link, it’s funny. Not that there’s anything funny about Boko Haram) Ditto the non-existent condemnatory Tweets from Gilman on whichever other jihadist group you can mention or think of, anywhere in the world. Not in the last few months (and that’s what counts). Probably or possibly never. Not from the jihadist hot zones from Yemen to Kashmir, from Algeria to Pakistan, Sudan to Thailand, Syria and Iraq (ongoing mass murder by jihadists). If you don’t get that his deafening silence on worldwide jihadist terror and mass murder alone in the last few months (including Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah terror against Israel that initiated this war he Tweets on so harshly, against… Israel), whilst his relentless persistent never-wavering-no-matter-what Israel bashing, is so obviously a reveal of Gilman’s anti-Semitism, then you are either an anti-Semite yourself or very very dimwitted. Or both. Like Gilman himself.

Thing is his anti-Semitic Tweeting mentioned above is pretty much one of the most moronic, warped, delusional and What the Fuck!! kind one can encounter among the hardcore anti-Israel far Left (which is saying a hell of a lot for sure).

Gilman is really pretty much as bad as it gets among the Israel hating  (i.e. Jew-hating) Left. Simply horrendous. It’s interesting that Gilman’s bigotry also shows up his mental retardation, his utter cretinism. Gilman can only experience a complete failure to appreciate that the IDF Tweet shows up the insane fanaticism and support for HAMAS among the Gaza civilian population and their willingness to sacrifice their children for HAMAS, and so their insane Jew-hatred; whilst showing the IDF’s humanity and concern for civilian casualties – the warning shot and the implicit and unequivocal abort of the mission. Gilman doesn’t appear to comprehend the real meaning of the IDF Tweet whatsoever. He possibly thinks along the lines of: the IAF pilots are all ‘yeeeehaaayipeekayemotherfucker, now we can kill all those sand niggers and their sand nigger kids in one foul swoop, go Zion’. When the warning shot by the IAF is given to force the exact OPPOSITE reaction, encouraging SANE civilians to leave the building in a hurry! Not to storm it and assemble on the rooftop! With their children! What a fucking moron. The point is bigotry and extreme stupidity go hand in hand, and I don’t know what comes first, I admit. They are just two sides of the same coin.

Nothing new from Gilman, just check out my two articles on him (then again as my blog articles on him reveal, this guy Gilman is a fan of Richard Seymour of the Lenin’s Tomb blog, a HAMAS and Hezbollah supporting blogger). Consistent in his obscene stupidity and prejudice. Then again if you think about it, as with his mate Tidhar, and Mendlesohn and Stross, extreme anti-Semitic Jews, none of them stop to think and reflect for ONE FUCKING MOMENT: ‘Gee I wonder if I can trust the anti-Israel i.e. the anti-Jew nation liberal media, and left-wing institutions and the like on Israel itself and the conflicts in the Middle-East, given the long culture of anti-Semitism in the West, culminating in the Holocaust? And given that pervasive Muslim extremism in the region which doesn’t count in the favour of Israel’s enemies…’ Nor does the thought, ‘Gee wonder what neo-Nazis and Muslim extremists think about Israel, and if their opinions coincide with the anti-Israel (because anti-Israel) Left? Gee wonder if that is a meaningful coincidence or not?’ Not for one moment do any of these simple and obvious points cross their ‘minds’. It’s simply not possible that the liberal media could ever be anti-Semitic. Ever. Because liberals could never be anti-Semitic. Ever. If you think about it, that in itself is a kind of mental blind spot so huge that you could drive the Starship Enterprise, the US Seventh Fleet and the entire cavalry of Genghis Kahn and Hannibal’s elephants through it and leave plenty of room over for an orbiting moon or three of Jupiter to whizz on by.

In other words, an extreme stupidity beyond words. And a very deadly stupidity at that, its consequences are very serious. And they make grown men cry.

Tangent editor Dave Truesdale gets taken to task by the genre Thought Police for alleged sexism. Black Gate founder, the now contrite and repentant John O’Neill leads the charge. Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is naturally not worth even a passing mention

Just thought I would add this latest twist to the Dave Truesdale in Wonderland narrative…

So less than three months or so after the last March update (3 updates in March alone) to my Dave Truesdale petition article and ergo a Holocaust Revisionism centered article; Dave Truesdale gets raked over the coals by the genre Thought Police, for uh… alleged sexism.

Truesdale gets taken to task – just a little – in a blog article entitled ‘An Open Letter to Dave Truesdale’ posted on June 5th by a former co-editor and colleague John O’Neill at the Black Gate website/blog (O’Neill and Truesdale edited the Black Gate magazine together, years ago). The charge here is Truesdale’s (and O’Neill’s for that matter, yup truly) …. alleged sexism. Not Truesdale’s Holocaust Denialism/Revisionism. What’s that? Holocaust Denialism? So last century I guess. Who cares? Clearly nobody. O’Neill (an engineer by profession) is the founder and publisher of Black Gate and also co-founded the SF Site.

No it’s just Truesdale’s alleged sexism (and O’Neill says O’Neill himself was also guilty of sexism too in the past, when he first put together stories for publication at Black Gate with Truesdale. Now O’Neill has reformed and he won’t revert. A public confession of past sins I suppose) that O’Neil berates his former colleague for, and himself too.

Basically the catalyst for this latest round of genre Stockholm Syndrome is a recent Truesdale review of Lightspeed #49 at Tangent, the special ‘Women Destroy SF’ issue (yes it’s ironic), which one supposes is all about how female authors have triumphed in SF against all the odds and obstacles in their way, because they are living in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan apparently or it’s the year 1895. Or something like that.

Truesdale in his review and in the Truesdale fashion, goes a little overboard and REACTS, and swings to the other extreme (the one extreme being hyped up PC militant feminism) and remarked snidely – at least according to O’Neill’s summation – that “science-fiction hasn’t a racist or sexist bone in its body… Not once have I personally seen a smidgeon of racism or sexism.” Uh not once? In decades? Truesdale ain’t a youngster, he’s been around the SF scene for probably close to forty years or thereabouts. I don’t think it’s for a Holocaust Fucking Revisionist to get to decide what is sexist or racist, but you know nobody but myself would dare point that out.

A harsh interpretation here: Truesdale is either deliberately lying or wouldn’t know what sexism is (never mind racism), if it hit him in the face and asked him for a light. It’s frankly a pathetic denialism. Denialism as a whole seems to be Truesdale’s perverse modus operandi.

To be fair to Truesdale, he says in reply to O’Neill that O’Neill took that remark out of context. Truesdale writes there:

You took the next lines out of context: “science-fiction hasn’t a racist or sexist bone in its body… Not once have I personally seen a smidgeon of racism or sexism.” You left off the first two words, words making all the difference in the world. The sentence reads, “The _field_ of science fiction hasn’t a racist or sexist bone in its body.” I purposely emphasized the word “field” to draw a distinction between the greater body of SF and _individuals_ who commit sexist acts and should then be dealt with accordingly. Because SF as a field is one of the most open, diverse, welcoming genres of fiction there is. All groups have problems with a few individuals, but I don’t think it’s fair to tar the entire organization with a sexist or racist label as _some_ are more than wiling to do. That’s all I was getting at. Wasn’t trying to say there was no sexism, racism, or homophobia in the field, but that it centered on a few individuals; the genre of SF by great majority has a fewer number of bad apples than does the “outer” world. This is all I was trying to say. Agree or disagree, but this has been my personal experience. Yet you chose to clip two lines, place them together (…) to present another visual of what I said. That’s not fair.

Anyhow this is debatable. Perhaps O’Neill is right to call “bullshit” here (in the pasted excerpt below). Truesdale, one could reason, appears to be splitting hairs here. However O’Neill doesn’t stop there, he swings to the outer reaches of PC imbecility. There is no balance with these folk, it’s polar opposite extremes. Steaming equatorial jungle or freezing trundra, never temperate Mediterranean or Californian climes.

O’Neill responds to Truesdale’s review, by likewise reacting, and once again going to the other extreme swing of the idiot ideological pendulum, by engaging in the most pathetic and extreme PC feminist folderol. Here is the inimitable O’Neill:

I have to call bullshit on you, buddy. In those 18 months you were working for me as Managing Editor of Black Gate, from early 2001 to 2002, and while we were buying fiction together, we were blatantly, nakedly sexist — and I think you know it.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. How could I possibly have been sexist? You passed along numerous stories written by women to me for consideration — and in fact, you strongly championed several, urging me to publish them. Established writers like Nancy Varian Berberick, newcomers like Devon Monk, and many, many others. You’ve stated elsewhere that the sex of the writer doesn’t concern you when buying a story, and after working closely with you, I know that to be a fact. No one is challenging your credentials in this regard.

But here’s the thing: you can buy fiction from women — and even champion them — and still be sexist.

How is that possible? It’s simple. We welcomed women who submitted… as long as they played by our rules. We launched a heroic fantasy magazine — heavy on the sword & sorcery, thank you very much — and crafted guidelines for what we perceived as a masculine, male-dominated sub-genre, and clapped ourselves on the back every time we bought a story from a woman who managed to jump over the bars we set.

But there wasn’t a single woman writer on the table of contents of the fiction section for our very first issue, launched in November 2000.

 

So O’Neill who sound like a proud reformed alcoholic or reformed wife beater, who makes a public confession of his previous sins, ‘I used to be bad but now am good’; is now in the good graces of those who he says he previously offended or aggrieved (however inadvertently and unintentionally) i.e. women, or rather and more accurately far Left feminists. This is tiresome, so as briefly as possible: Truesdale may well be sexist, after all he is so reactionary all around, he wears his reactionary stance as a badge, he’s a caricature. However as far as at least some of O’Neill’s specific charges go, they appear more than a little off base, more than a little reflective of cardboard caricature militant feminist speak. A lot of standard overhyped PC ‘gender fail’ militant feminist gibberish from O’Neill, suffering from whatever the Stockholm Syndrome term is for this kind of thing. Oh my God there wasn’t a single woman featured in the first issue way back when, OH MY GAAAAAAWD. Well was it intentional? Did you deliberately leave out women, because they were women, or did you leave out women simply because there weren’t that many submissions from them, and/or you felt none of their stories were suitable for the issue or good enough? Motive is everything. Breathe deeply John. Calm down.

Relax John. I think if you were to tell genitally mutilated women from East and North Africa, and Hindu girls preyed on in hellish slums across India, and prepubescent girls in the Persian Gulf sold into marriage to middle-aged and elderly men, and Eastern European teenage girls in the brothels of Europe, Brazil, North America and Australia, about the terrible ‘crime’ you have committed in your evil past against the female gender, at best they would look at you like you had escaped from an asylum, at worst they might just slap you. Or wish to. And if you don’t know why, well what can I say?

Were there no African-Americans in that first issue neither, or *any* of the subsequent issues, John O’Neill? If not, you are a racist, a Jim Crow apologist, a KKK wizard. I mean according to your own ‘logic’ O’Neill. I mean by this: what is the percentage of African-Americans to the American population and how many contributors to that premier issue of Black Gate and all subsequent issues were/are African-Americans? And if it doesn’t match John (and according to some stats I found, as of 2012 African-Americans were 13-14% of the U.S. population), if it don’t measure up, if African-American contributors to Black Gate come in at less than 13% of total contributions, let’s say less than 10% because I’m being generous, well it’s the chop for you. You’re racist. And were there no Hispanics in that first issue? What about homosexuals, O’Neill? If none of those male writers you published were gay, if they were all of the straight persuasion, what can I say, by your own rules: you are also a homophobe. Or once were. Whatever. I mean since approx 10% of men are gay (or whatever it is, that may be a bit of a generous stat, or it may not be. Oh My God what to do?!!), that means if your issue had a minimum of ten contributors, one of them had better be gay. Or else you are a homophobic bigot. We can go on and on like this. According to O’Neill’s Papier Mâché house of cards ‘logic’, he’s bigoted in multiple ways. The lack of logical follow through here is not my blunder, it’s all O’Neill. O’Neill is prejudiced – even if inadvertently – against any such group or demographic that he didn’t publish in the premier issue of Black Gate. Or any subsequent issue. No not really.

And  there was a wailing and a gnashing of teeth.

If you think this an uncharacteristic slip on O’Neill’s part, he goes on in this vein. In fact if anything he sinks ever deeper into the mire, into full bore militant feminist gobbledegook. There’s these ‘gems’ from him in the same apologia (emphasis in sea-green text is mine):

we published a huge percentage of male writers, and that in turn told women they weren’t welcome…

You know who else has my gratitude? Those men and women who started compiling and reporting statistics on the percentage of women writers in genre magazines. They included Black Gate in one of the first of those reports, scoring us at an abysmal 29%. 

 

Yeah really. Can you feel the burn O’Neill? Of the whip as you strike it deeper into your naked flesh, you medieval flagellant you. Now I could understand O’Neill’s contrition if he was say a reformed and thus genuinely contrite ex-Muslim extremist, who no longer thinks honour killings, wife beatings and cliterectomies are just fine, and Allah’s way of keeping women and girls in line, along with the belief that women are there to be baby factories and better show appropriate modesty by covering up their uh ankles and forearms and faces, lest they inspire men who naturally can’t otherwise control themselves to rape. And no longer believing that any rape that resulted excused the pious Muslim extremist rapist/s who got a glimpse of  the woman’s or girl’s hair or clavicle. In other words, no longer believing it’s all the fault of the girl and she ought to be lashed as punishment. It’s not as if that is the case here with O’Neill. Although you could be forgiven for thinking so, you could be forgiven for thinking the guy ran a brothel and beat up his girls if they didn’t give him his share, given his guilt and shame and remorse at not publishing exactly 50% or at least 48.25% or even 51.15% female authors in any genre magazine issue, or all magazine issues in toto. The science fiction community is literally a mad house. Its personnel are interchangeable with the White House I suppose.

If only 30% of the writers were male in said magazine issues, would that be proof of misandry? Don’t ask the gender Thought Police that question now. They don’t think to ask it themselves. Whatever happened to… all that matters is the quality of the stories? I mean if you are sane and reasonable. But naturally we are dealing with crazy folk here. I don’t – and neither do other sane or semi-sane people – go through the contents list of any anthology (genre or otherwise) or academic journal or book to check the ratio of men to women contributors. Who does? Only crazy gender obsessive Thought Police that’s who. Imagine if  readers of science and engineering journals (specialist and lay person friendly alike) went through the lists of the professional contributors to each issue, to tally the contributions by gender, and then complain: but this issue of Nature has only 24% female contributors and this issue of Cell only 22% female, this issue of The Journal of Immunology only 25% female and this issue of The Journal of Neuroscience horror of horrors only 22% female, and this issue of Popular Mechanics only 14% female contributors and this issue of The New England Journal of Medicine only 32% and blabla. Well surely most of their regular readership would rightly think: off to the nut farm with such absurd gender obsessives. What matters is the quality of the articles (peer reviewed especially), their relevance, their importance, their transparency, replicability etc.; not whether or what percentage of the authors are male, female, gay, transgender, bisexual, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Wiccan, neo-Shamanic, Unitarian, Methodist, Mormon, atheist, Catholic, Shinto, Sikh, Polynesian, Tibetan, physically handicapped or able-bodied and whathaveyou. But we are talking about the SFF community, and insanity is the new normal here.

Actually given how the sciences are becoming increasingly the domain of more and more female professionals, I wouldn’t be surprised if in fact Cell and The New England Journal of Medicine had more contributors who were female to male on occasion, and increasingly so. So should we complain about misandry now to the editors? Well if we are crazy, then yes. If we ‘think’ like the far Left SFF community and their hotbed of militant feminists, then yes. I mean it’s the same ‘logic’ in operation here.

Imagine tallying the contributors to any fiction or non-fiction periodical/anthology (say Western or crime fiction) and professional journal of any type you can think of, all by skin colour and sexual preference (if it were plausible); and then complain it was all so racist and homophobic, if it didn’t tally with the percentages of people of colour and homosexuals and bisexuals in the general populace? And would that be the general population in America or Canada or the UK or Australia or Spain? For fuck’s sake enough already. Yet this kind of insanity is the norm with these Thought Police knuckleheads.

Getting back to Tangent editor Dave Truesdale, who may well be sexist, he gives every indication of being at least a little sexist…

Yet with 100% predictably, nobody can be bothered to mention that Truesdale is a Holocaust Fucking Revisionist, because that would open up a whole can of worms, and nobody but the Jews would care or give a damn anyhow. And even they don’t give a hoot. After all look at how many Jewish genre folk signed the Truesdale petition earlier this year, including genre heavyweights such as Resnick, Silverberg, Malzberg, Brin, Dann, Turtledove, Gerrold and Ellison. (And no their excuses for signing that petition are flimsy. Albeit not all the same excuses. Depends on the individual. I explain briefly why that is the case in that very lengthy article itself) This taboo re acknowledging the most base and extreme anti-Semitism in the genre community is all off the radar (well that’s the nature of taboos I guess!), even as a Google search re the Truesdale petition shows up the Red Wolf blog on page one (and has done so for an age). Even as Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism was brought up at Adam-Troy Castro’s place on the web yonks ago (and the subject desperately changed by genre Jewry there, to attack… Republicans. Truesdale even defended himself there. The only laughable public defense he has ever uttered since I published my Holocaust Revisionism series way back in 2011), even as genre Thought Police commented dumb dumb style on my relevant article re the Truesdale petition just a few months ago, without once mentioning Truesdale’s Holocaust Denialism, but that’s just the thing… I mean it’s just the Red Wolf constantly bringing this up, genre Jewry are scared to death of going anywhere near this. Sitting on that keg of dynamite, and keeping it firmly shut down.

Now militant genre feminist Ann Somerville is one of those commenting at Black Gate, (check the link) in response to O’Neill’s ‘open letter’, shilling about Truesdale’s sexism and what a caveman he is, along with other feminists of course, and John O’Neill is all cheering from the sidelines and basks in her forgiveness; and Truesdale himself comments extensively there, with a number of posts… Thing is Somerville did read and Tweet on my Truesdale article from a few months ago (it’s how I know she read it), the article in which Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is the centerpiece. Naturally Somerville along with fellow Thought Police Tweeters, can’t be bothered to mention that mammoth in the room, in their brain-dead responses to my article. Here is what I wrote in reply to her (one of my March updates) and fellow militant feminist Natalie Luhrs and gang:

So their response to the red wolf blogger, the one who  gives them the revelation that Truesdale – who they hate – is a Holocaust Fucking Revisionist, (and all the evidence they could ever need in that department, not that they want to know!) can be summed up as…

Luhrs: I’m a non-denominational Christian deist, so I’m a terrible Jew 

Somerville: Unclean Unclean!

It’s just so pathetic. Such extreme cognitive dissonance. Boggles the mind.

End of excerpt.

Naturally Somerville continues with her modus operandi at the Black Gate website. That is she would never (well in all likelihood) in a million years make mention of Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism, even as she along with plenty of other genre Leftists, is well ‘aware’ of this blog and my easy-to-verify charges against Truesdale. Even as she considers him a sexist cave-man.

Then again Natalie Luhrs over at her Radish Reviews blog, likewise takes Truesdale to task for his alleged sexism and his insensitivity to the female gender and its struggle in SF, in a blog entry from June 3rd, likewise responding to his Lightspeed review, sans any mention of the dinosaur skeleton in the Truesdale cupboard, of which she is well ‘aware’ (as with Somerville). See that recent March update to the Truesdale petition article of mine for Luhrs’s Tweets on that very self-same article; as with Somerville and gang, no mention of Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is made by her, even as it’s always central to any article I write on Truesdale. That’s the fucking point. Even as Luhrs points out – and I admit she is arguably right in this respect – how ridiculous it is for Truesdale to remark that he never witnessed any racism or sexism in the SF community. (although to be fair to Truesdale, he says that’s not quite what he meant. Still I would argue he is guilty of whitewashing here) But then Luhrs messes it all up, as she only can, by writing this (bold emphasis is hers):

 Do I even need to go into the ridiculousness that is Truesdale’s claim that he’s never witnessed even a single incident of racism or sexism? As a white man, would he have even noticed?

The problem with Truesdale’s lack of sensitivity here re racism and sexism has nothing to do with skin colour, but everything to do with Truesdale’s reactionary nature, his character, his lack of insight, his sweeping complex issues under the carpet. The fact that Luhrs pathetically brings up Truesdale’s skin colour, shows she is no better than the racists and misogynists (real and/or imagined) that she’s so ready to pounce on, and point fingers at, from on high. How do you spell HYPOCRISY Natalie? Do you even know? In the 58 comments to Luhrs’s blog posting, nobody in that echo chamber bothers to mention the very real anti-Semitic bigotry of Truesdale’s, that makes his roughness and insensitivity, his sexism even, pale in comparison. Commentators include Mary Robinette Kowal, and Ann Somerville gushing over John O’Neill’s posting.

Same selective blindness to Truesdale’s REAL BIGOTRY (that’s his Holocaust Revisionism see?) applies naturally to all the Thought Police, no exceptions. That’s what makes them Thought Police. And utterly ridiculous. For example one of my biggest critics, Paul Weimer of SF Signal, (who also Tweeted obtusely and snidely on my Truesdale petition article without mentioning sigh Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism. WELL NONE OF THEM DO – see the March updates to that article for the relevant Weimer Tweets) a real dumb dumb, Tweets on Truesdale’s latest offense against genre far Left feminists and cites O’Neill’s apologia in the process, but as with Luhrs and Somerville, would never dare make mention of Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism. As I wrote in that Truesdale petition focused article:

So the PC Thought Police of the genre community…  have tied their hands, they have painted themselves into a corner. They can’t point out the fact that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist without pointing to this blog with a thumbs up, since I and I alone have revealed the ugly facts in all their gory details re Truesdale, I alone have the smoking gun; but that would mean acknowledging that I have exposed very real anti-Semitism in the pro genre community. It would mean giving me even grudging and lukewarm praise. Now the same genre figures – writers, editors, fans… who have dismissed me as a loon and worse (as has Truesdale) are cognitively incapable of that. It is not only that they would have to swallow a bitter pill and have their egos take a bit of a battering. It is something more sinister. They would have to pay even passing recognition to anti-Semitism in the here and now, in our wider society and notably in the genre community itself and this bigotry’s pathetic and flimsy disguises. Because after all, there is a domino effect. What psychoanalysts call free-ranging associations. If they acknowledge the work I have done exposing Truesdale as a Holocaust Revisionist, then well what about the other anti-Semites I have exposed at this blog (even though not guilty of Holocaust Revisionism)? The latter new anti-Semitism the more acceptable, respectable and fashionable kind for sure, but anti-Semitism and extreme and vicious anti-Semitism at that. Many (I’m not saying all of them) of these genre Leftists critical of the Truesdale Petition and the signatories, are left-wing anti-Semites or apologists for liberal anti-Semites or scared to death of acknowledging any of this… 

 

I mean what of China Mieville’s, Kathryn Cramer’s and Nick Mamatas’s anti-Semitism, Michael Bishop, Ken MacLeod, Paul Graham Raven and Hal Duncan likewise, Charles Stross’s, Lavie Tidhar’s, Farah Mendlesohn’s self-abasement in this respect? All exposed at this blog, always with the smoking guns, and in some detail. Soooo many others I don’t even bother with (and some that I do). This blog just skates the surface. I mean if they come crashing down… Who else? Who among these genre Leftists and especially far Leftists is left standing?

Anyhow I repeat myself. And repeat myself. There is the rub as they say.

As for John O’Neill, what’s his excuse? Does he likewise think Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism just not worth bringing up, can of worms and all that? Or such a trivial matter… Or is he just clueless about this blog? Truth is I don’t know. Thing is it would never make any difference anyhow. Even if he does know about this blog, and my easy peasy to get smoking gun charges against Truesdale, O’Neill would *in all likelihood* never ever ever mention it, just like Somerville, Luhrs, Weimer and gang who of course cannot claim ignorance of my blog and my Truesdale accusations re Holocaust Denialism. And O’Neill would never bring it up for the same reasons as Somerville, Luhrs and gang. That is, we wouldn’t want anything upsetting the genre Thought Police warped worldview and narrative gush and flow now. Don’t want to throw a spanner in the works. Can’t Have That. I mean publishing only 29% (almost a third) of women writers in your magazine O’Neill is certainly a crime, a shameful horror, a terrible travesty and wrongdoing, an abomination and transgression, an atrocity beyond my ability to articulate, far more egregious than you know Holocaust Revisionism (your silence on Truesdale’s bigotry here) and extreme and vicious anti-Semitism as a whole (your and the rest of the genre Thought Police’s deafening silence, if not endorsement by more than a few, on Mieville’s, Cramer’s, Mendlesohn’s, Mamatas’s, Stross’s and gang’s modern-day new anti-Semitism). Forgive the sarcasm, but what else can I say here?

Others who have commentated on the latest Dave Truesdale brouhaha include James Nicoll and Amal El-Mohtar, and well if you are interested just do a Google I guess. No none of them can mention the… well you know already. As if anybody would expect otherwise. It’s just so pathetic and laughable though. In a very disturbing way I mean. Sure my blog is out in the wilderness, but word gets around.

And my criticisms of the Thought Police re Truesdale and the elephant in the room that is Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisonism, would apply equally to those who defend Truesdale, and can’t be bothered to go near his Holocaust Revisionism. Naturally. Well that would really disrupt the smooth self-righteous aggrieved Galileo narrative of Truesdale and his defenders. So pathetic. Hard to believe the Truesdale defenders (thankfully don’t appear to be many of them at all, but I must admit I haven’t done an extensive search here) don’t know about my blog after all, and my well-evidenced charges against Truesdale re Holocaust Revisionism. Obviously the anti-Semites among Truesdale’s defenders (who tend to be the Vox Day fan club) could care less, but not all of them are anti-Semites. In fact, on average I would say probably less anti-Semitic (maybe) than the genre Left and especially the genre hard Left, where anti-Semitism (as anti-Israelism) is very much de rigueur. Hard to believe certain ‘anti-PC’ folk are not cognizant of this blog, especially former Asimov’s Forum contributors… Clearly nobody gives a fuck. On all sides of the political or ideological divide. I mean when genre Jews don’t give a fuck, and they don’t, why should Gentiles? I mean it’s a fair question…

The sinister subtext to all this: Just don’t offend the SF Thought Police with gender crime (and associated), real or imagined. Holocaust Fucking Denialism is not a problem to them. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT. That’s for sure. That’s only extreme anti-Semitism after all. And the Jews are fair game once again. Especially among the far Left, where the Thought Police are snugly camped, like warm puppies. Look at Ann Somerville and Natalie Luhrs notably, re their tip-toeing around Dave Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism like it’s not even there, whilst ranting about what a sexist Neanderthal he is. It’s actually darkly humorous. And Somerville and Luhrs are fairly representative of these Thought Police far Left twits, and very vocal here.

And naturally at least some of the anti-Thought Police folk don’t give a flying fig neither, at least not those who publicly run to Truesdale’s defense in this respect, because they are running to Truesdale’s defense and ignoring – as their Thought Police antagonists do – Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism/Denial. I mean the only excuse they all have is that they don’t know about my blog, and it doesn’t always apply…

So to any anti-PC folk who rush to Truesdale’s defense: let’s ignore Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism, because that’s just a minor minor minor thing, trivial trivial trivial. Nobody’s perfect and the Thought Police’s harping on about gender thought crimes are a far bigger issue and heinous absurdity, than HOLOCAUST DENIALISM. That’s just an eccentricity, especially if held by a conservative genre dude who clashes publicly and loudly with Thought Police airheads. And as far as genre Jewry are concerned, reflecting Jewish cowardice in society as a whole, well they wouldn’t want to upset BOTH SIDES HERE BY ACTUALLY MENTIONING TRUESDALE’S HOLOCAUST REVISIONISM, if they can even fathom it. Which a fair number of them, from Charles Stross to Chuck Rothman (and several others), cannot. Let’s not forget Felix Gilman and anti-Semitic Gentiles Paul Graham Raven (in the update) and Nick Mamatas’s screw-ups here, so very revealing, for those who have eyes to see.

I repeat myself I know. I know.

It’s also worth remarking on something that is otherwise easily missed. Or escapes one’s attention. Namely the fact that nobody (Jew or Gentile) as far as I know, has given up writing/reviewing for Tangent in light of the revelations that Truesdale is a Holocaust Denier. I mean it’s just Tangent, niche SF criticism, obscure, small readership and I assume it doesn’t pay much at all, if at all. It’s not The New Yorker or The Spectator. Not even close! Truth is nobody (Jewry included) wants to know, nor do they care. What a disgrace.

Geoff Ryman tweets in reply to my exposé of Farah Mendlesohn’s anti-Semitism, and so denies the undeniable and defends the indefensible

I was going to add the content of this blog article to the previous one re my exposé of ‘Jewish’ genre editor and professor Farah Mendlesohn’s horrible anti-Semitism (as rabid anti-Israelism), just to make a further update there. However I decided best to make it a stand-alone article. Ryman deserves his own article, given that he is a well-known and highly acclaimed and award-winning genre writer, and the other article is long enough.

There has been one further Tweet from Farah on the previous article, since I published the updated reply (a reply to her initial Tweets on my exposé of her vicious anti-Semitism), and a few of her followers, and Ryman is notable here. Initially I thought I missed these Tweets but they were only tweeted on June 9th and thereabouts.

So the previous article is necessary background reading before tackling this one. Briefly I show how in 2009, Farah Mendlesohn, like the cookie-cutter caricature of the anti-Semitic left-wing academic that she is, signed her name (along with other anti-Semitic left-wing British academics) to a dishonest, brazenly one-sided and rabidly anti-Israel petition during the Gaza War of that year i.e. the war initiated by HAMAS in its firing barrage after barrage of rockets and missiles, indiscriminately targeting Jewish civilians in Israel for death and maiming. I had quite a bit to say on it in the relevant blog article of mine and provide scholarly links as to why that petition and the subsequent UN sponsored Goldstone Report on that war (that Goldstone has even attempted to run away from and now shuts up about) are horribly anti-Semitic. I also point out the deafening silence – the non-existent petitions that is – from Mendlesohn and her fellow bleeding heart liberal academics then and now, on relentless jihadist terror and mass murder, tyranny and oppressive Sharia law, from around the Muslim world. And what that tells us about Farah M and her ilk. Details in the article.

So Farah Mendlesohn tweeted some rather lame replies to my article, thanking the Jew-hater and communist Nick Mamatas for alerting her in this respect (which as I wrote in the updated reply to her Tweets, only adds weight to my charge). Anyhow consult the previous article for my reply to her initial Tweeting.

Yet a few days later (June 9th) she would Tweet again my way (I must have really hit a nerve, the wound festered over a few days…), so here it is (further down), along with the Tweets from a few others. Yet is is Ryman who is the focus here naturally enough.

Farah Mendlesohn @effjayem
Apparently I am an anti Semite. https://seasonoftheredwolf.wordpress.com/2014/06/05/the-horrible-anti-semitism-of-the-jewish-prof-and-doyenne-of-the-liberal-sf-literati-farah-mendlesohn/ …. (No, I’ve not read it all. I’m not daft.). Thank you @NMamatas for alerting me.

I have of course already addressed this Tweet above in my previous article.

Geoff Ryman ‏@geoffryman Jun 9
@effjayem @NMamatas Could we all agree not to retweet this article? It just spreads the idea

Now we wouldn’t want that idea spreading now, would we Ryman? People might get the wrong idea. People may even think it might be true. Well you don’t need to worry about that. They would no more comprehend the article you are Tweeting on, than you do. At least not the liberal genre anti-Semites and their apologists you clearly associate with. Ryman appears to sense deep down, that Farah doesn’t have a leg to stand on, the desperation from Ryman comes through…

Farah Mendlesohn ‏@effjayem Jun 9
@geoffryman @NMamatas I prefer to laugh loudly right in the face of these creeps.

That’s showing me up Farah. Just keep telling yourself that. Yeah Farah that’s really sticking it to me! Oooooh I’m a creep and you laugh in my face. That’s cutting me down to size and totally refutes the points I allude to, about that 2009 anti-Semitic (because dishonestly anti-Israel) petition you signed during the Gaza war, and all those other anti-Islamist petitions you didn’t sign (along with your fellow liberal academics) ever.

Uh then again maybe not.

Simon B
‏@S0B
@effjayem well that was fascinating. I have learnt that if you have no cogent argument, random words in bold are an acceptable alternative.

Nothing random about the sentences I choose to emphasize in bold. They are emphasized because they are the most important points I make in my article. And thus the ones I want to stress the most. That’s the whole point of putting text in bold. DUUUUUUUUUUH. As for no cogent argument, yes I can see you don’t have one.

Kevin J. Maroney ‏@womzilla 18h
@effjayem @S0B Do not DOUBT the power OF RANDOMLY emPHAsizing WORDs or even SYLLABLES AND letterS

UH I don’t do that. Oh wait, you are clearly disturbed by the contents of my article and thus respond in a way that is neither logical nor factual, nor relevant. What else is new?

This stand-alone Tweet from Ryman is worth highlighting (June 10th)

Geoff Ryman @geoffryman
Rabid attacks on Jews for BEING antisemitic (unpack later) sound like antisemitic attacks ON Jews. I feel sad.

So we have the well-known, highly regarded and award-winning genre writer Geoff Ryman (who as a matter of interest is gay and now teaches English or Creative Writing or some-such at the University of Manchester) tweeting in defense of Farah Mendlesohn’s indefensible anti-Semitism. In so doing Ryman shows he is the scarecrow without a brain, on the yellow brick road to Nowhere, with Farah M in the Judy Garland/Dorothy role I suppose…  No happy ending here though. This is real life. (Yes a reference to Ryman’s novel Was to those of you who don’t know it. As a digression let me say it’s a very good novel, I recommend it)

You would of course never know what my article was about going by Ryman’s Tweets, then again it’s Twitter. Medium is the message and all that.

So by pretending nothing anti-Semitic to Mendlesohn signing a hardcore anti-Semitic and viciously anti-Israel petition in 2009, Ryman either outs himself as an anti-Semite; or else he’s just plain stupid and mistakes some misguided, unthinking knee-jerk rallying defense of his fellow liberal genre colleague, as some kind of vindication of her. One or the other. Either way it’s very stupid of Ryman. Ryman’s obtuseness and ignorance is compounded by his Tweeting in this respect to Nick Mamatas, as does Mendlesohn of course. I have written several articles on Mamatas at this blog. Each and every one of them shows up Mamatas as a hardcore Jew-hater and hypocrite (although I only heavily imply his anti-Semitism, I didn’t come out and state it explicitly). Ryman doesn’t appear to have a clue and it clearly wouldn’t make a difference if he did. Tweeting in self-satisfied agreement as Ryman and Mendlesohn do, that I’m basically a kook, to one of the genre’s most notorious anti-Semites (Nick Mamatas) is not doing Ryman and Mendlesohn any favours. It’s just plain sinister really.

I wonder if Ryman even bothered to read the previous article properly. Mendlesohn proudly states that she didn’t! And she thinks that counts in her favour. I can’t blame Mendlesohn for not wanting to read my article in its entirety, even in small part; if I were a self-hating Jew like her, I wouldn’t want the indisputable evidence for my self-loathing thrown up in my face. Too humiliating and distressing. She’s never had to face this before it would appear, surrounded and cocooned as she is in the Gentile British academic establishment, with its toleration of Court Jews like her, so long as they play along with the new anti-Semitism.

Ryman reveals just how plain stupid and ignorant he is. Oooh I’m the anti-Semite now for exposing anti-Semitism. Ryman pretends Jews can’t be anti-Semitic. Heck several of the Jews in the genre community ALONE, show that to be a lie. As the archives of this blog reveal! But only to those who are not anti-Semitic nor brain-dead or both. Anybody not living on Mars and who is not an anti-Semite (liberal or conservative), and who observes closely the political scene, and has the pulse on the contemporary zeitgeist, knows that the Jews are among the worst anti-Semites. Nothing new there. In fact a perusal or search of this blog’s archives show up some of the most notorious propagandists for the Jihad against the Jews to be Jewish themselves (such as Hezbollah supporters Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein). A perusal of the contemporary academic literature on anti-Semitism in the world today, and among specialist political bloggers, shows up sooooooooooo many of the most conspicuous Israel haters (but NOT haters of Muslim extremists) around the world, including notably Israel itself, America, Britain, Canada, France, Australia… are Jews.

Ryman would possibly tell me that Jew nation hatred isn’t anti-Semitic, only Jew-hatred is. Heck the previous article to the one Ryman’s Tweeting on details ‘Jewish’ genre writer Charles Stross’s anti-Semitism, and non-genre ‘Jewish’ political writer Max Blumenthal’s Jew-hatred is relevant there. Maybe Ryman will tell me Blumenthal can’t be anti-Semitic because he’s Jewish. Ditto Stross. It would at least be consistent of Ryman. Maybe Ryman will tell me that liberal Jewish genre writer Anna Tambour is not anti-Semitic and neither is Gilad Atzmon, of whom she is an admirer. And how can one leave out Lavie Tidhar? Maybe Ryman will tell me there’s no such thing as liberal or left-wing anti-Semitism. His Jew-hate genre communist buddy Nick Mamatas (that Ryman Tweets to, and on the Season of the Red Wolf blog no less) denies there is an anti-Semitism problem among communists!! In one of his snarking replies to me. Yeah the anti-Semite Mamatas would know. Hey Ryman Mr. Clueless, this is how Mamatas screwed up on the Season of the Red Wolf, and showed himself up for what he is…  And then engaged in a lying meltdown at his blog when I exposed it (incompetently defended at his blog by his fellow anti-Semitic far Left lapdogs). I’ll tell you this much: if Farah Mendlessohn isn’t a caricature of the liberal anti-Semitic academic, then liberal academic anti-Semitism doesn’t exist. Then The Guardian isn’t anti-Semitic. And neither is the BBC. And Michael Bay and Roland Emmerich are the best film directors in Hollywood. In the whole world. And L. Ron Hubbard was the greatest science fiction writer who ever lived and Scientology is the one True Faith.

Weirdly Ryman tweets a lot on general anti-Semitism (in Europe) around about the dates June 8th, 9th, even 10th. (Tweets pasted below) Maybe a coincidence… Is he trying to show us (and myself the Red Wolf and himself for that matter) that he could never be considered an anti-Semite? I mean I just mention this in passing.

I paste up the Tweet of his re N K Jemisin, since Jemisin is every bit the far Left mirror image of Vox Day (who she got involved in a ding-dong battle with – SF’s 46th nervous breakdown. The late James P Hogan’s, Tangent editor Dave Truesdale’s and editor Sam Hidaka’s Holocaust Revisionism aren’t even rated. Only this blog for the actual facts therein). Hard to say who is more bigoted, Jemisin or Beale/Vox Day? Personally I declare a draw. The thing with Ryman… he is clearly not bothered by her reverse racism identity politics (which is well-known to genre insiders who are not left-wing morons), something she shares with plenty of the other far Left genre nitwits (i.e. the genre Thought Police). Ryman is buddy buddy with many of the far Left genre twits, that much is clear from his Twitterfeed alone. And from a few days in June. In other words, his politics are far Left. And so we have his idiotic Tweets directed my way, all emotion no brain, in defense of the indefensible, in defense of left-wing Jew-hate bigotry. Inadvertently or not.

Here are the Tweets of Ryman’s from June 8th, 9th and 10th.

Finishing The Plot Against America. No! Roth lets USA and Lindbergh off the hook with speedy tell-not-show. Still wonderful. I want be Roth

My God but how bad things look for the Jews. The Economist’s  lies and denials to the contrary.

What else is new?

Ryman wants to be Roth! Well for starters, you would have to recognize the most extreme left-wing anti-Semitism for what it is, and not deny and pretend it isn’t what it so clearly is. Even if it’s coming from ‘Jews’. Roth has been upfront for example on The Guardian’s anti-Semitism (he lived in England for a while with the mesmerizing Claire Bloom, before their bitter break-up. I’m sure you know this Ryman, but for my readers’ benefit). The only people who call Jewish self-hatred a myth are Jew-haters themselves. Or ignoramuses. Or Tibetan herdsmen and Thai farmers and the like, who wouldn’t be expected to know any better. You don’t have that excuse. You live in merry Olde England Ryman. Since you are such a literati type and teaching literature/creative writing in an English university, did you really not know that liberal writer Howard Jacobson won the Booker Prize (Britain’s most prestigious literary award) a few years ago for The Finkler Question, a book whose central theme was the conundrum and tragedy of Jewish self-loathing? Naturally the Jew-hater China Mieville didn’t care for the book.

Why don’t you rather take some baby steps Ryman? How about you just be a gay liberal who is not a hypocrite. Tomorrow (June 13th) is the annual Gay Pride Parade day in Tel Aviv. Safe to say there is no annual Gay Pride Parade in Ramallah, Gaza City, Cairo, Damascus, Riyadh, Algiers, Kuwait City, Lahore, Karachi, Khartoum, Dubai, Tunis, Baghdad, Tehran, Manama, Sana’a and Doha. Not even Casablanca. (Funny story – I remember reading about a gay man from Casablanca at Tel Aviv’s Gay Pride Parade a year or two ago, waving a Moroccan flag. That’s just the thing…) Can you imagine if gays, lesbians, bisexuals living in those cities even suggested such a thing, a Gay Pride parade/day? I mean if they wanted to commit suicide… And the results would resemble images from Jonestown Guyana. Ryman’s fellow gay genre liberal writer, and a very outspoken homosexual at that, British anti-Semite Hal Duncan, would prefer it if Israel – the only country anywhere in the Middle-East a gay man would want to live in – didn’t exist, unlike every other country in the Middle-East. Of course Duncan would deny that he meant that, but then he doesn’t know what Zionism actually is or what it actually means naturally enough. So Duncan’s an idiot, what else is new with the British pseudo-intellectual Left? Btw the response to these obvious revelations, by Israel-hating gays (and a fair number of them are Jewish! Even Israeli Jewish I kid you not) is the bizarro fangled Jew-hate delusional deception known as Pinkwashing (at the link btw, the point that Palestinian gay parties are held in… Tel Aviv).

And no I am not gay myself, although I know I may have given that impression easily enough in the course of this blogging enterprise (since I am not so insecure in my masculinity, I don’t care if people think I’m gay or straight or bi or whatever. Like it matters). Ryman, if you have to ask – what hypocrisy? Well really. I don’t expect you to get it. Your Tweets tell me you don’t. And the Jew-hating company you keep. Oh wait it’s only the Jew nation hating company you keep. The difference of course is that the former type are more honest about what they are. To themselves and the wider world.

To quote the immortal Geoff Ryman, “I feel sad.”

 

DOROTHY How can you talk if you haven’t got a… brain?

SCARECROW I don’t know. But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?

DOROTHY Yes, I guess you’re right.

UPDATED The horrible anti-Semitism of the ‘Jewish’ prof and doyenne of the liberal SF Literati, Farah Mendlesohn

UPDATED Scroll down for the update, dated June 7th. A reply to Farah Mendlesohn’s Tweets on this very article.

Those readers who follow this blog, and who are not anti-Semitic (and that means not anti-Israel) and keep an eye on, or are cognizant of all the anti-Semitism among the genre Left (as with the Left as a whole, from the anti-Semitic US president Obama to NPR and the BBC), and the role played by self-hating genre Jews in running cover for and cheering on their liberal Gentile colleagues and peers in their Jew-hate as Israel-hate, their know-nothingness, their moral relativism, their lying; may be a little surprised that I have never before mentioned the Jew in Name Only Farah Mendlesohn’s extreme modern-day anti-Semitism/Jew-hatred, i.e. her rabid anti-Israelism. I mean given how she is a caricature of the anti-Semitic Islamophile liberal humanities prof, and given her high-profile position in promoting science fiction/imaginative fiction, as a genre worthy of academic commentary. She is also a genre editor.

Well here is that article. I’ll get round to her Jewish self-hatred in a mo’.

Farah Mendlesohn is, as her Wiki page informs us, “Head of Department in the Department of English, Communication, Film and Media at Anglia Ruskin University. She was previously Reader inScience Fiction and Fantasy Literature in the Media Department at Middlesex University. She writes on the history of American religions and British and American science fiction and fantasy. She received her D. Phil. in History from the University of York in 1997. She was the editor of Foundation – The International Review of Science Fiction from 2002 to 2007. She formerly was reviews editor of Quaker Studies.”

One wonders what history that is, that she specialized in, Marxist Revisionism?

She co-edited The Cambridge Companion to Science Fiction with Edward James.

Glorifying Terrorism is a book from 2007, that she edited, reviewed here at Strange HorizonsIt’s apparently some kind of protest fiction against the British government’s outlawing of the “glorification of terrorism” via its Terrorism Act of 2006, which is supposedly reactionary. Make of that what you will.

One assumes Farah Mendlesohn and her contributors mean ‘glorifying terrorism’ in an ironic post-modernist way. Or some such. I don’t really care to know.

Telling that the contributors to the Glorifying Terrorism anthology include several horrible anti-Semites from genre pro ranks, including Hal Duncan, Charles Stross, Lavie Tidhar and Ken MacLeod. So it’s entirely appropriate that the anti-Jewish ‘Jewess’ Farah Mendlesohn is such an anthology’s editor.

I do actually mention in passing Farah Mendlesohn’s anti-Semitism in this blog article of mine (one of the updates), with a link to this article here (from The Palestine Chronicle), a smoking gun of in-your-face Leftist Jew-hatred, that shows Mendlesohn up for the self-loathing liberal bigot that she is. I have also mentioned her in passing in my Mieville series, but didn’t begin to get to grips with her anti-Semitism there.

Staying on track with the petition she signed back in January 2009 (link from The Palestine Chronicle above), along with other anti-Semitic British academics, protesting Israel’s fight in the Gaza War of 2008/2009, i.e. the Jews fighting back against a conflict initiated by HAMAS with its targeting civilian Jewish populations with rocket attack after rocket attack at the end of 2008. Of course to Jew-hating Leftists and their Islamist allies, its imperialist aggression and a war crime for Jews to ever fight back against the peaceful and progressive Jihad, in any way whatsoever. It’s a petition that also featured in the horribly anti-Semitic The Guardian. It’s a petition that openly and explicitly hopes for, indeed prays for Israel’s defeat at the hands of HAMAS.

If you think I’m kidding, here is a choice quote from that petition:

Israel must lose. It is not enough to call for another ceasefire, or more humanitarian assistance.”

The talking points in that petition, simply tiresome heard-it-all-before Jew-hatred passed off as Middle-East analysis, and the predictable whitewash of the HAMAS Jihad against the Jews. I am not going to bother fisking that petition myself, it has been done effectively by others. That Gaza conflict between Israel and HAMAS would culminate in the anti-Semitic Richard Goldstone Report orchestrated by the Jew-hating UN, now a report so utterly discredited, that Goldstone himself has tried to distance himself from it.

Safe to say that since then (never mind at the time and before then), Farah M and her fellow bleeding heart petitioners have never bothered to sign any public petition expressing outrage, anger and self-righteous venting and spleening against any jihadist group or organization anywhere, never mind HAMAS’s rocket attacks on Jewish civilians that initiated that very Gaza conflict (Jihadist attacks from Gaza easily numbering over ten thousand rockets, missiles, mortar strikes since 2005 in fact). In fact simply no outrage, anger, no condemnation via any petition whatsoever from Farah Mendlesohn and her fellow British liberal progressive academics against any jihadist Muslims extremist groups anywhere in the world. Not the Taliban’s ongoing jihad, not Boko Haram’s twenty year reign of terrror in Nigeria that has now degenerated into full-scale civil war, not the jihadist fighting in Libya, now ongoing and intensifying, not the jihadist terror in Algeria, Yemen, Mauritania, Chad and Mali (ongoing and intensifying), and not Muslim Brotherhood tyranny and terror in Egypt. Not jihadist conflict in Kashmir and Pakistan, Thailand and the Philippines. Not the jihadist mass murder in Darfur, not Hezbollah’s tyranny and murder in Lebanon, not the oppressive tyranny and state sponsorship of jihadist terror from Iran. Not the Sunni and Shi’ite fanatics and factions in Iraq slaughtering one another with abandon, seemingly without end, and no condemnatory petition against the murderous parties in Syria’s Civil War in which over one hundred and seventy thousand people have been killed to date, including tens of thousands of civilians. Nothing. Nada. Rien. Zilch. No public petition from those profs on that front. No public petition from any of them, Farah Mendlesohn included, protesting against Sharia Law anywhere in the world, from Afghanistan to Nigeria, Saudi Arabia to Pakistan, Brunei to the Sudan. Sharia Law is murderously homophobic and murderously misogynistic. Pay No Mind.

Even if Israel were guilty of war crimes against Gaza in the 2008/2009 war, which it wasn’t, such brazen and indisputable double standards re Israel and the barbarity, mass murder, oppression and tyranny within the Muslim world ALONE, by these self-righteous anti-Israel pro-Palestinian liberals, can only be accounted for by naked anti-Semitism/Jew-hatred. It is naked anti-Semitism in principle. Of course it’s worse than just double standards, it’s a moral inversion. Gaza Muslim fanatics from HAMAS and allies initiated its 2008/9 conflict with Israel by targeting Jewish civilians for death and maiming by rocket and missile attacks, and Israel responded by fighting back against the HAMAS Muslim extremists. HAMAS is guilty of using civilians as human shields, an actual war crime. Anti-Semitic anti-Israel spin to the contrary.

Mendlesohn was, as to be expected, one of those harshly critical of  Elizabeth Moon when that whole ‘Islam Citizenship’ thing blew up. I mention that (and Mendlesohn in this regard in passing) over here. Farah M was one of those commenting at anti-Israel ‘Jew’ Lavie Tidhar’s blog in this respect. Like Tidhar and all the other anti-Israel Jews and Gentiles, Farah M had nothing PUBLIC to say about James P Hogan going public with his Holocaust Denialism. And of course heard nothing from her when I outed Dave Truesdale Tangent editor as a Holocaust Revisionist. Then again ditto the entire genre community. Even now. Years later. Mendlesohn is thanked by hardcore Jew-hater and fellow British prof China Mieville in the Acknowledgments to his book The City & The City. It’s not as if Mieville’s hardcore Jew-hatred bothers Farah at all, after all it’s clear to her, as with anti-Semite Lavie Tidhar, that Mieville’s anti-Semitism is nothing of the kind. As with Tidhar (and Mieville), she is sympathetic and supportive of BDS activism against Israel (as the petition she signed makes clear, it explicitly calls for a boycott against Israel). And the BDS gangsterism against Israel is horrible and extreme Jew-hatred, nothing less than that.

No genre pro (as far as I know) in the genre community has had boo to say about Farah M’s self-hating Jew status. Then again no well-known genre writer, editor, agent, publisher (not talking the very few genre fans here, such as Jordan Bassior and a few others) in the genre community has boo to say about any other self-hating genre Jews, calling out their self-hatred for what it is. Not with respect to Lavie Tidhar, Anna Tambour, Charles Stross, Rachel Swirsky, Felix Gilman, Rose Fox, Scott Edelman, Laura Anne Gilman, Nir Yaniv, conservative and former SFWA president Paul Levinson and others. Then again no notable genre pro, or hardly any, has boo to say about the hardcore Jew-hatred from Mieville and his buddy Nick Mamatas, not the Jew-hatred from Ken McLeod, not from Kathryn Cramer, not Iain Banks (not notable genre folk in Banks’s case. Liberal genre Jewry such as David Brin and Neil Gaiman fawned all over him, sobbing at his passing). Jews in the genre community have had plenty to say, for and against, re the whole kerfluffle and nervous breakdown that was the Resnick-Malzberg ‘sexist’ SFWA Bulletin affair (just google it and see how many thousands of blogs, Twitterfeeds and websites crop up), plenty of outrage there. Over less than nothing. Plenty of commentary on Harlan Ellison grabbing Connie Willis’s breast. I can’t remember if it was her left or right breast, if I ever knew. Only James May (aka ‘Fail Burton’) and myself called out far Leftist Charles Stross for his blaming “crazy white guys… the provisional wing of the Tea Party” for the Boston marathon bombing the day it happened, Sarah Hoyt’s blog has since publicized this fact. Otherwise nothing but silence. Can you imagine if a conservative genre writer had blamed “crazy black guys from the New Black Panther Party” for that same bombing? There would be a massive response, the head honchos at SFWA would get involved, an urgent meeting would be called, a storm of behind-the-scenes gossipy e-mails would result. Subsequent commentary and venting from near every SF liberal genre writer, editor and fanboy with a blog. A Twitterstorm. His agent would drop him. It would make the mainstream media.

Can you imagine if a conservative genre writer remarked in some silly flame-war he got involved in, “Butt-fucking is just mentorship between a man and a child.”? Well there would likewise be huge outrage in the SF blogosphere, calls for said writer to be fired from any membership in the SFWA or similar, his agent would drop him as if he were a wet turd. A massive SF Twitterstorm. And rightly so. However because that remark was *actually written* by a Jew-hating genre communist writer, namely Nick Mamatas, the response is well…. NOTHING. I mean I am the only one who blogged on it. Seriously. Can you imagine if a conservative genre writer said his favourite blogger was David Duke, or a popular British National Party blogger, or any KKK white supremacist blogger you care to name? Of course a hue and cry, and such a person would quickly become persona non grata, and rightly so. However because communist Nick Mamatas’s favourite blogger (Mamatas is explicit on this point) is a fellow communist who gives unequivocal support for HAMAS AND HEZBOLLAH, it’s all just hunky dory, nothing to see here. I am the only one who has called Mamatas out on it, the only person. Mieville has written for that Jew-hating Lenin’s Tomb blog btw.

And what of all the shrill commentary on the disinvite of Jonathan Ross from a GoH speech at the Hugos this year (it even made the New Statesman for crying out loud, the linked article)? In fact Farah Mendlesohn resigned from Loncon 3 over all this! And of course plenty of outrage re Elizabeth Moon. I got over three hundred thousand returns on Google for ‘Elizabeth Moon’ and ‘Islam’.

James Hogan’s Holocaust Revisionism, go here for the actual level of outrage (my specific reply to the genre Thought Police’s Chesya Burke in this regard), barely a pip. Especially from genre Jewry.

The taboo of refusing to face up to the most extreme and hardcore Jew-hatred in the genre community came to its absurd nadir with SF’s 49th nervous breakdown, the Dave Truesdale SFWA petition earlier this year, itself a fall-out from the Malzberg-Resnick witch-hunt. Nobody there, heatedly arguing and throwing insults at one another, on both sides of the Truesdale Petition affair, could be bothered to mention the fact that Tangent editor Dave Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist. Even after they all became clued up to my relevant article on that front. And remember plenty of Jewish personalities signed the petition. Even now, the sounds of cowardly silence. The only actual returns you get on Google, to explicit allusions of *Dave Truesdale’s indisputable Holocaust Revisionism* are to this blog (and Dybbuk Press’s Tim Lieder refusing to recognize that Truesdale is a Holocaust Denier)! Don’t want to open that can of worms! Oh My God  it will lead down a road nobody wants to travel… Genre Jewry themselves bar entry to that road. They guard it with sticks, clubs, harpoons and nunchaku. Scared To Death.

Why should Gentile supporters of Israel in the genre community call out any anti-Semitic personalities in the self-same genre community (predominantly liberal but also conservative), when Jewry is too cowered, scared stiff, quaking and quivering, and riddled through with self-loathing and ignorance, to do what they should do? In fact it is genre Jewry who are leading the way in defending, promoting, rationalizing and lying for the cause of liberal and progressive Jew-hatred as anti-Israelism. In and out of the genre community. Liberal genre Jewry, at best cowards, at worst self-hating Jews. It’s that simple. I don’t mean every single one of them, but most of them. For sure.

As with their fellow liberal Jews who don’t know Frank Herbert from Frank Sinatra, who don’t know nor care about Science Fiction. Genre liberal Jewry are a mirror, a microcosm of contemporary left-wing Jewry. After all, liberal American Jews overwhelmingly voted for a Jew-hater, Barack Obama. Twice over. As I write this up, the cat is out of the bag. As if it wasn’t beforeObama has given the green light for the US government to fund the Fatah-HAMAS unity government that has come into existence this very week. That’s where the ‘peace talks’ with the jihadist terror group Al Fatah/PA have gotten Israel. I predicted more or less, this ongoing catastrophe for Israel over here, when these farcical now suspended talks began.

And the real horror, the real consequences have yet to hit home.

It’s only just begun.

Not that Farah Mendlesohn knows nor cares. Israel is the villain to her. And her disgusting ilk. ‘Jewish’ and Gentile alike. It’s just a coincidence that they share their hatred of Israel with HONEST Jew-haters of the neo-Nazi white supremacist type and the Muslim extremists they actually support. Nothing to see there. Move along.

As for almost ALL liberal genre Jews, far Left and mainstream Left, they are predictably consistent, in ways that are increasingly debased, delusional and asinine. That is their deafening silence, if not a big thumbs up, on the Jew-hatred of their genre colleagues is entirely consistent with their voting for (or supported if not American) that Jew-hater Barack Obama, TWICE OVER, whose policies and whose administration increasingly threaten Israel’s very existence. In the name of alliance and friendship.

I am no longer at the end of my tether. I am past that point.

Sleep well liberal North American and British Jews. You’re not living in Tel Aviv nor Haifa after all. So what do you care?

To be blunt: go to hell.

 

the coin flips again and again, and again, and again
as our sanity walks away
all this discussion though politically correct
is dead beyond destruction
though it leaves me quite erect

and as the final sunset rolls behind the earth
and the clock is finally dead
I’ll look at you, you’ll look at me
and we’ll cry a lot
but this will be what we said
this will be what we said

Look where all this talking got us, baby.

UPDATE JUNE 7th

Yawn. So a predictable Twitter response to this article, as you would expect really (aside from facebook). Anyhow here are Farah Mendlesohn’s Tweets (June 5th and 6th), the featured self-hating genre Jew of the month.

Farah Mendlesohn @effjayem
Apparently I am an anti Semite. https://seasonoftheredwolf.wordpress.com/2014/06/05/the-horrible-anti-semitism-of-the-jewish-prof-and-doyenne-of-the-liberal-sf-literati-farah-mendlesohn/ …. (No, I’ve not read it all. I’m not daft.). Thank you @NMamatas for alerting me.

 

Farah Mendlesohn @effjayem
The best bit about hate reviews is taking their words and use it as a tag. I like being “the liberal doyenne of sf literati” #RedWolf

 

Farah Mendlesohn @effjayem
It just occurred to me that I didn’t actually know what “doyenne” meant. I am now ludicrously flattered (see last night;s twitter stream).

 

Notice how she thanks Nick Mamatas, the Jew-hating communist for alerting her to this article. Birds of a feather… Very much proves my point about Mendlesohn’s anti-Semitism.

Notice (no not you the Jew-hating genre Thought Police, you are not even conscious in any meaningful sense of the term) how Nick Mamatas is so shameless, he has no problem giving public attention to this article; when I make mention of the fact that his favourite blogger (with the evidential link) is a Hezbollah and HAMAS supporter, Richard Seymour of Lenin’s Tomb (Seymour also a fan – and vice-versa – of the odious George Galloway, a proud HAMAS fundraiser and one of the most notorious Jew-haters in Britain, which is saying a lot). That and the fact that I give a link to an article above evidencing his NAMBLA friendly remark, that don’t bother Mamatas neither. He and his gang are soooooo supershameless. Naturally it don’t bother Farah M, giving him the hat tip. She probably didn’t read that far, like she says. And if she did, it wouldn’t have made any difference of course.

I am really surprised you didn’t know what ‘doyenne’ meant Farah, aren’t you a fucking professor? And in the liberal arts, or some-such pseudo-artistic folderol? Aren’t you an editor of uh books? Hey, here’s a word I know you won’t know the meaning of, you can look it up, but you won’t, it’s ‘dhimmi’. That’s what you are. You and your fellow progressive bigots. Also a ‘useful idiot’. As in useful idiot of the Jihad, but you don’t need to look that up, even though you don’t get it naturally enough. How about ‘dupe’? You know what that means, surely?

Farah admits to not having read the whole article, well naturally. Not that it would make a difference if she did, in one ear and out the other. Actually not even in the ear, since it all reads like Zulu or Mandarin to these folk. Cognitive Dissonance pure and simple. You’re not daft!! Want to bet? Your daftness and worse is the subject of this article after all.

One wouldn’t have a clue what this article was about, and all its allusions, going by Mendlesohn’s Tweets (and any of her fellow dunderheads). The core point being that obscene anti-Semitic petition she signed in 2009 (pay no mind to linked articles written by actual scholars exposing that petition for the Jew-hate gibberish that it is, and the subsequently discredited Goldstone Report vilifying Israel, and even the Golstone Report isn’t as bad as that Jew-hate petition Mendlesohn signed!), Farah’s support for BDS against Israel (check the petition), and how buddy buddy she is with so many Jew-haters whose Far Left anti-Semitic politics she shares, Mamatas and Mieville among them.

One wonders how would these self-hating Jews like Farah Mendlesohn (never mind the Gentile Jew-hating far Left) react if Israel were actually destroyed by these Jew-hating Jews’ allies, the Muslim extremists? Unfortunately this is not a fanciful fantasy scenario, and it’s becoming less fanciful with every passing day. (Abbas knows, the jihadists in the Middle-East and Iran know, with the ostensible leader of the ‘Free World’ being a hardcore Jew-hater himself, and having their back, now may be the best time to act on their Jew-hate genocidal fantasies. Who knows who will next occupy the White House after all?) I mean from a psychological viewpoint, how would these self-hating Jews cope with the destruction of Israel? Blame Israel? Sure, but what else? Block it out, and focus on some new cause no doubt, since Jew-nation baiting would no longer be remotely plausible if Israel is destroyed, and those devil Zionists are pushed into the sea, exterminated and/or forced to flee to God knows where. Jew-hating Gentiles (whether liberals, communists, socialists and conservatives among them), will most likely just return to old-fashioned HONEST Jew-hatred. Not that they ever left it behind really… And what are you going to do then, anti-Israel Diaspora Jews? (As for anti-Israel Israeli Jews, well who knows where they will be!) What will you hide your self-loathing behind then? Will self-hating Jews just rewrite their personal history, reinvent themselves as mournful Zionists? There is no self-deception and bizarro collective deception I wouldn’t put past these people. They are still selling the Jew-hating Holocaust Denying jihadist Mahmoud Abbas as our peace partner, even now that he has signed a unity deal with HAMAS in the PA government (now to be funded by American and European taxpayers, in violation of these countries’ own laws. Pay No Mind). They are in every way, literally and clinically insane.

And the attitude of so-called right-thinking, but actually cowardly Likudniks goes like this, ‘better not offend that Jew-hater Obama, otherwise he will hate us, and do nothing on Iran and fund HAMAS’.

I digress… Actually I don’t.

Farah ‘I’m not daft’ Mendlesohn take a bow.

If only you were a unique Jewish specimen, as rare as four-leaf clover.

Unfortunately you are not.

Anything but.

Charles Stross in friendly anti-Israel Twitter banter with anti-Semite Max Blumenthal, the pseudo-scholar whose Israel hatred inspired the neo-Nazi killer Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr. of the Kansas Jewish Community Center murders

I have posted up a fair bit on the anti-Israel ‘Jewish’ SF writer Charles Stross over the course of this blog enterprise. His anti-Israel/anti-Semitic zeitgeist is something I have remarked on or alluded to in several articles, along with his love affair with moral and cultural relativism, and Islamophilia (i.e. he’s a typical idiot far Leftist). This one here though is a real doozy, although honestly it’s just more of the same. Frankly it’s all so predictable.

There is a fair bit of typical and odious left-wing ‘the bogey man that is the evil conservative Christian’ blather from the likes of Stross and Max Blumenthal (and others) here in Twitter conversation from October 24th 2013, and the sinister and frankly bigoted tainting of Israel and the Mossad – a transparent guilt by association – with the alleged quasi-fascist agenda of the American Christian Right. I can’t even be bothered to dissect and fisk it all. Note the source that the anti-Semitic ‘Jew’ Max Blumenthal cites, the electronic intifada, is one of the most dishonest and horribly Jew-hating (as in ‘new’ Jew-hating i.e. Israel hating) ‘news’ propaganda outlets on the WorldWideWeb. There is a mountain of info out there on the lying and demonization of Israel, the Jew among the nations, from the electronic intifada ‘news source’. Naturally together with its consistent lying and misrepresentations of Israel, and its anti-Semitic support for BDS against Israel, the electronic intifada whitewashes and even lauds the Jihad against the Jews, and naturally likewise whitewashes the Jihad against everybody else for that matter, in the Middle-East and beyond.

Here anyhow is the Twitter conversation from October 2013:

Max Blumenthal @MaxBlumenthal Oct 24

John Skylar @JohnSkylar Oct 24

@MaxBlumenthal @cstross The major verified fact in this article is that Israel discovered evidence to a law firm that supports Israel. So?

Charlie Stross@cstross Oct 24

. @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal Mossad directing funding by a Dominionist fundamentalist whack-job doesn’t strike you as … odd?

John Skylar @JohnSkylar Oct 24

@cstross @MaxBlumenthal Of the things the Mossad has done, this is the biggest non-story in their history.

The Library Mole @kawelch Oct 24

@cstross @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal In America? Just another day.

Charlie Stross @cstross Oct 24

. @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal It’s not like they stole a freighter with 240 tons of uranium or anything, but I’m still fascinated 1/2

Charlie Stross @cstross Oct 24

. @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal 2/2 by the US Christian right’s support for the Israeli Jewish right (who they can’t abide, theologically).

John Skylar @JohnSkylar Oct 24

@cstross @MaxBlumenthal I dig. As a member of the Jewish middle, the Christian money creeps me out, I’ll be honest. Funding the apocalypse?

Jeff Eaton @eaton Oct 24

@cstross @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal Important to remember that end-times theology holds that all good Jews will become Christians.

Jeff Eaton @eaton Oct 24

@cstross @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal So, the theological differences are only temporary!

Charlie Stross @cstross Oct 24

. @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal It’s like the Aryan Nations cuddling up to the Nation of Islam. Cute, in a creepy way—who’ll stab who first?

Julio Escajedo @MorganBlackhand Oct 24

@cstross “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” or something like that.

Charlie Stross @cstross Oct 24

@JohnSkylar I got a whole horror novel out of that theme …

John Skylar @JohnSkylar Oct 24

@eaton @cstross @MaxBlumenthal Yeah, because I really need Christians to tell me if I’m good or not.

John Skylar @JohnSkylar Oct 24

@cstross Yeah, especially in the AN/NoI terms you put it, it sounds like there’s a cyberpunk thriller this news fell out of…(1/2)

The Library Mole @kawelch Oct 24

@cstross @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal The Christian Right loves Israel because that’s where Armageddon will start. +

John Skylar @JohnSkylar Oct 24

@cstross …even better would be a preacher funding Mossad cyberwarfare to bring about a nuclear war or something. (2/)

The Library Mole @kawelch Oct 24

@cstross @JohnSkylar @MaxBlumenthal + it’s just a coincidence that there are Jews there…

John Skylar @JohnSkylar Oct 24

@cstross @MaxBlumenthal I think let’s stay away from comparing Israel to major anti-Semitic organizations, though, eh?

So much horrible, delusional, confused and bigoted gibberish there (against pro-Israel conservative Christians and Israel), and total trust from all the Tweeters there in the anti-Semitic hate site electronic intifada, Blumenthal’s go-to-source naturally enough. Stross blabbering on in his usual oblivious bigoted ‘anti-fascist’ fascist style, re his warped allusions to the Aryan Nation and the Jew-hating Sharia supporting Nation of Islam. As for the Tweet sent Stross’s way amidst that poisonous and odious Twitter hate-fest, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”… !! Indeed. My irony meter explodes. Then again if I had a dollar for every time my irony meter exploded when pouring over Twitter rants from anti-Semitic left-wing extremists, I would be sunning myself on board my yacht off the Caribbean by now. Uh is Israel equivalent to the Jew-hating Sharia supporting Nation of Islam now Stross, or is the Jew among the nations rather more like the genocidally Jew-hating Aryan Nation?! How are conservative Christians who dare have the gall to support Israel – the Jew among the nations – against Muslim extremists and fascists, the latter openly dedicated to another Holocaust of Jewry, uh… “Aryan Nation” i.e. neo-Nazis?! Maybe Stross means it the other way around, pro-Israel Christians are equivalent to the Jew-hating Nation of Islam. Sigh. Stross as he can be relied on, gives all the evidence that ‘progressive’ and ‘enlightened’ in far Left newspeak really means fascist and bigoted, so there you go. Calling Dr Freud. Even Skylar gets nervous there at the end, vaguely sensing where all this is leading, in fact where it has already led, that is to explicit, indisputable and ugly in-your-face anti-Semitism; rather than keeping it in the bounds of respectably dishonest and fashionable Israel hatred and hatred of conservative gentiles who support Israel (which Sklyar is just fine with of course).

Yeah it’s Christians (and the Mossad it appears) who are not anti-Israel who threaten the Apocalypse, not Blumenthal and gang’s fellow anti-Zionists, the Jew-hating Muslim extremists from HAMAS, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood to the Assad Syrian regime and the Iranian regime. Well it is so in the fairyland world of the Jew-hating far Left, and notably the Jew-hating far Left ‘Jews’.

Max Blumenthal is one of the most prominent of the new generation of Israel hating American far Left ‘Jews’ (succeeding the now elderly Jew-hating ‘Jew’ Noam Chomsky one supposes, who Stross also admires of course). Blumenthal is the author of a recent anti-Semitic book on Israel, one praised by Jew-haters of every stripe (and yes white supremacist neo-Nazi types too, David Duke included. And that is the crux of the matter, the main point of this article), Muslim extremists and Jew-hating liberal types. Gee I wonder what explains Charles Stross’s fellow anti-Israel Twitter mate Max Blumenthal being fawned over by David Duke and… uh what’s the title of this article again? The lies in this Blumenthal book about the Jew nation (published by the far Left anti-Semitic The Nation‘s book imprint) and the whitewashing of the crimes of Muslim extremists against Jews and others can fill a whole book itself.

Here is an article from the left-leaning Forward, a Jewish Affairs online magazine, on just how extreme the Judenhass is in Max Blumenthal’s book Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel. As the article points out, even the very left-wing The Nation’s liberal columnist Eric Alterman (even as The Nation‘s book imprint published the book!!), in reviewing the book, commented:

‘ “I expected to disagree with its analysis,” he wrote. “I did not expect it to be remotely as awful as it is…. It is no exaggeration to say that this book could have been published by the Hamas Book-of-the-Month Club (if it existed).” ‘

Blumenthal gladly preens his Israel bashing credentials to the fawning Press TV, the Iranian regime’s propaganda arm in the English language world (there’s that enemy of my enemy is my friend again, Charlie S). Then again, Blumenthal has compared Israel to Nazi Germany. So it’s hardly surprising that Blumenthal is a fan of electronic intifada and that Stross implicitly gives his thumbs up to that anti-Semitic well of poison. Birds of a feather… Enemy of my enemy…

Naturally the anti-Semitic Jew Charles Stross has a high regard for Blumenthal (as his friendly Twitter conversation with Max B attests to) and – to repeat the point – has no problem with Blumenthal’s Jew-hating source, electronic intifada likewise. The thing is their Twitter banter is not about recipes for Thai chicken, Latin American or African politics, the Great Recession or the ongoing Hi-Tech information revolution, science fiction and whatever else. The buddy buddy Stross, Blumenthal and friends Twitter conversation centers on Christian conservatives who dare support the Jooooo nation, and how fascist that all is apparently. And that’s why it is so sinister, uninformed, delusional and yes bigoted.

The anti-Semitic news source Mondoweiss (founded by surprise surprise another extremely anti-Semitic Jew Philip Weiss), is where Blumenthal posts up a lot of his Jew-hate rants, including his admiration for anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist Stephen Walt (who blames Israel for pushing America into war in Iraq); in fact there is nothing but endless, relentless and persistent Jew nation bashing (all of Blumenthal’s articles on Israel without exception are nothing but lies and distortions, and a parroting of Jew-hate Palestinian propaganda besides) from Blumenthal and Mondoweiss. You would never know about the ongoing mass murder, torture, killings, bombings, terror, tyranny and oppression of jihadists from Syria to Nigeria, Kashmir and the Sinai, Somalia to Thailand, Gaza to Iran and Yemen to Afghanistan going by Blumenthal and Modonweiss. That’s what makes them such OBVIOUS Jew-haters, aside from their tiresome demonization of Israel. Philip Weiss gave his support to Hezbollah during the 2009 Lebanon election, saying  “I hope Hezbollah wins…. Nobody else seems to care for the poor people in Southern Lebanon.” Weiss also believes in a sinister and oppressive Jewish conspiracy in the halls of American political power and the US media, and has given support to the extremely anti-Semitic BDS movement against Israel (check same link/s).

In fact hardcore genre Jew-hate writer China Mieville gets fawning treatment over baseless fact free anti-Israel commentary (i.e. his usual Jew-hate animus) at Mondoweiss this very month, the day after the Kansas City area murders in fact (April 14th).

It is truly difficult to get the warped and poisoned mindset, the ‘thinking’ of Jews like Blumenthal (never mind Weiss), his Twitter buddy Stross, and the latter’s fellow anti-Semitic ‘Jewish’ buddy Lavie Tidhar (and Anna Tambour for that matter, among plenty of others in the genre community alone) in which it is the conservative Christian and the Jew nation alike who are the foremost fascist bogey creatures threatening life, liberty and authentic civilization; not Muslim extremists (Sunni and Shi’ite) who are at the present time slaughtering and maiming people from Egypt to Syria and Nigeria, Christians included, cutting off the clitorises of girls from Egypt to Somalia, persecuting homosexuals from Iran to Saudi Arabia, threatening Jews with another holocaust, and a nuclear holocaust at that. Then again, Stross is always consistent in this regard. He blamed the Tea Party for the Boston Marathon bombing a year ago after all. Check the updated lowest part of that article for Stross’s endorsement of an anti-Semitic tweet falsely accusing Israel of  “ethnic cleansing”, an accusation that was easily debunked. Then again, check the lowest part of this article (the update) for how Stross dismissed my series on Holocaust Denialism within the genre community, without reading a single word therein, as nothing but a paranoid fantasy on my part; when encouraged to do so by his fellow anti-Semite Paul Graham Raven, who had dismissed that series likewise without reading a single word therein. Like I say Stross is predictable and consistent, in the worst way.  

Now with the killing of three people (two of whom were gentiles) at the Overland Park Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom in the Kansas City area by the former KKK white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr. aka Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr. on April 13th, who was heard to shout ‘heil Hitler’ as he was sent away in a police cruiser; it turns out Miller/Cross Jr. is an admirer of the Israel hatred of Stross’s Twitter buddy, Max Blumenthal. Blumenthal tweets desperately to try and blame the Kansas murders on random American gun violence (along with the other Israel-hating Jew Mira Bar-Hillel, same link) and in the process downplays and dismisses the obvious murderous Jew-hatred here; and then it is outed that Cross Jr. is a big fan of the ‘Jew’ Blumenthal and commends the latter’s writings on Israel and its apparently nefarious agendas! The thing is Blumenthal has the gall, the chutzpah – it’s beyond chutzpah  to then blog on Cross/Miller Jr’s killings, makes sure to give it an anti-Israel (and anti-Christian conservative) spin, because it’s always about Israel in the eyes of Jew-hating Leftists like Max B, even when it isn’t (that’s what makes them such obvious Jew-haters for one); but Maxie B can’t be bothered to take in the fact that Frazier Glenn Cross Jr. is a big fan of Max Blumenthal himself, when it comes to all things Israel related! In fact Blumenthal has the gall to compare Frazier Cross’s Nazi ideology to Zionism! Uh Projection Blumenthal, Projection. 

Here is Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr. on Blumenthal (posted up by him at the Vanguard News Network, a neo-Nazi forum akin to StormFront, in turn akin to the now defunct Asimov’s Discussion Forum). Note that he’s also a fan of that anti-Semitic Republican crackpot, Ron Paul. Former SFWA president, the ‘Jewish’ prof Paul Levinson is a big fan of the Jew-hater Ron Paul btw.

This is some big dookee, yaw’ll.

http://runronpaul.com/interviews/isr…on-paul-obama/

Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican establishment.

Like I’ve been saying, the kikes simply do not trust a lame-duck black president with the name Hussein. Jews fear his re-election, thus this jewish Super PAC to defeat him.

 

If a Jew-hating Hitler admiring KKK killer gushing over the writings of a far Left ‘progressive’ Jew’s Middle-East oeuvre surprises you (and gushing over Ron Paul likewise), you are not paying attention. Didn’t surprise me in the slightest, nor did it surprise me that Stross was all buddy buddy with Blumenthal on Twitter, especially when it came to political ‘news’. In fact how did I discover all this? It was so easy. After it came out that Blumenthal inspired the ‘political philosophy’ of the KKK murderer, I thought to myself, ‘I wonder who is on record for gushing over the Jew-hater Blumenthal (and the worst anti-Semites are the far Left ‘Jews’. The very worst) among the Jew-hating genre liberals?’ I thought to myself, I wouldn’t be surprised if  somebody like Stross has gone all gaga over Blumenthal, since Stross routinely gushes over Jew-nation hating Jews (check Stross related articles at this blog), so I did an Internet search and Bingo!

UPDATE September 2015: I just thought I would add a further exposé on Blumenthal’s JudenhassI know it’s flogging a dead horse at this point, but still it’s worth checking out. From the link (CAMERA, a site exposing anti-Jewish bias in the US media), pasted below:

It’s all on the record: Blumenthal lied, for example, when misquoting Zionist founding father Chaim Weizmann. Helied when claiming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the September 11 attacks. He lied when falsely attributing a statement to Ariel Sharon. He lied when misquoting CAMERA. He lied about supposed Zionist collaboration with Nazi Germany. He lied about Israel opening dams to flood the Gaza Strip. He lied about Israeli Bedouin; about a Netanyahu-backed “Jewish state” law; about Israeli funding for a radical NGO; about Israeli support for a Palestinian state; and about the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians.

So why wouldn’t he lie, on Chicago public radio, about the 2014 war between Hamas and Israel? Below, in chronological order, are some of Blumenthal’s falsehoods on the Sept. 21 edition of Wordview.

UPDATED 2016 David Duke in Wonderland: The Dave Truesdale Petition re the SFWA Thought Police and the hatred that dares not to be acknowledged. Least of all by genre Jewry

This article has been updated (once again) on 7th September 2016. It relates to the Dave Truesdale expulsion from MidAmeriCon 11 held in Kansas City in late August 2016. Consult the lowest part of this article beginning ‘7th September 2016 UPDATE’. 

The (February) 2015 update naturally precedes the 2016 update.

There are three updates published in March 2014, one on March 6th, another on March 7th. There is a further 16th March Update, lower down. It pertains to Tweets (dated 13th March) from genre Thought Police airheads, Tweedledum and Tweedledee from SF Signal, and two of their followers.

The March 6th 2014 update is preceded by the March 7th update, which is in turn an update on the 19th February 2014 update. The reasons for this are apparent when reading through this article. The March 7th update follows naturally from the Feb 19th update, since it addresses my discovery of the identity/ies of the donotlink gang (my Feb 19th update) and their commentary on this very article.

The March 6th update pertains to, well best you read for yourselves…

Also minor editing, updates to original article dated 24th February and March 7th 2014.

 

Yeah I know I said I was done with this blog, the previous post from back in August last year being a thorough overview of the blog’s history; but a recent political brouhaha in SF circles was too good, or too bad really, to pass up. I wouldn’t even have mentioned it, it’s just that predictably nobody else has…

So Holocaust Revisionist, Tangent editor Dave Truesdale, not one of SF’s wallflowers, decides that he’s the one to take the fight to the SFWA and its Bulletin and the admittedly odious (but entirely predictable) decision of the SFWA to police Thought Crimes via pre-censorship (one of the roles it appears of the new Bulletin editor and a committee appointed for that purpose), in order to ensure that nothing could ever offend and ruffle the feathers of the genre Thought Police, who are clearly in charge of things over at the SFWA. As if one didn’t know that already. Truesdale does this via a petition he has drawn up and gotten a whole bunch of genre figures to sign (the latter signing an edited version of said petition), all detailed in the relevant links below. All this naturally a consequence of the whole Resnick-Malzberg kerfluffle, a shameful and pathetic witch-hunt if ever there was one. The SFWA doubles down when it comes to its straight-jacketed idiocy. Truesdale is a former SFWA Bulletin editor.

From Truesdale himself, his account of the latest of SF’s nervous breakdowns (as Steve Davidson puts it), over at his Tangent magazine.

Here is conservative SFF writer Sarah Hoyt on this affair. Here is Gary Farber, a noted blogger on SF and politics, arguing with David Brin and David Gerrold (the latter two signed the petition) about all this on facebook. All  three are Jews. Dave Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism, uh what you say, it exists only in an alternative reality. We live in a multiverse apparently. Welcome to the world according to liberal American Jews. Yeah they probably (but I can’t be sure) don’t know about my blog, at the end of the day no dice. They don’t want to know.  

This is the best link of the lot, some anonymous insider commentary over this whole affair, that has been made publicly available.

Natalie Luhrs gives an overview of this latest kerfluffle over at radishreviews, and yes Luhrs is a clueless moral relativist Thought Police enforcer so you know what her take is going to be.

The actual petition is over here. Luhrs informs us that this was what was originally circulating.

Luhrs needless to say doesn’t think much of the Truesdale petition. There’s a whole back and forth in the comments to her blog post, whether First Amendment Rights have anything to do with it, as the SFWA is a private organization, and can publish what they please and not publish what they don’t please, and other issues blabla. To repeat myself, whilst I have made it very clear that I see the Resnick-Malzberg kerfluffle as a nutty witch-hunt; a petition response to it by the likes of Truesdale, signed on to by heavyweight genre personalities – Truesdale naturally appears to sees himself as some kind of Galileo with the SFWA in the role of the Inquisition – is not the way to go. Frankly I think the way to go is to ignore the SFWA altogether and have nothing to do with that pathetic organization. The morons who run the show in that circus, whether they are actually a majority or just a vocal minority, ought simply to be ignored, mocked and ridiculed, not treated as the respectable and reasoned Voice of American Science Fiction. One cannot appeal to their reason, their sense of fair play, their moderation, their decency, for they have none of these qualities. That’s because they are nuts, stark raving and dumb dumb dumb. Humourless ideologues. The intelligent thing to do here would be to walk away from the SFWA, rescind one’s membership, not pay any dues, have nothing to do with the SFWA; as it is clearly hijacked by far Left gangsters who call the shots in that madhouse. Heck Truesdale isn’t even a member of the SFWA for crying out loud.

However the crux of the matter is this – this is a petition drawn up by Dave Truesdale, A HOLOCAUST DENIER/REVISIONIST!!

Hello is there anybody in the pro SF genre community who is sane? Anybody? Hello, Ground Control to Major Tom…

So let’s get this straight: Tangent editor, former SFWA Bulletin editor and Holocaust Revisionist Dave Truesdale writes up a petition to express opposition to the inevitable fall-out from the SFWA over the Resnick-Malzberg farrago (whether Truesdale has a point or two to make or is talking nonsense is not relevant to the point I am making) and a whole bunch of genre figures sign it, in explicit support of Truesdale’s petition, and many of them are heavyweight genre personalities. Of the four original signatories to Truesdale’s ‘rough draft’ – Resnick, Malzberg, Silverberg and Benford – three of them are Jewish!! Namely Resnick, Malzberg and Silverberg. That initial draft includes the back and forth between Truesdale and the ‘Jewish’ Steven Gould, president of the SFWA. Sheeeeeeeeesh.

Luhr’s blog posting detailing all this has 203 comments to it (last I checked). Among the commentators are Lisa Goldstein (Thought Police enforcer), Greg Benford, Mary Robinette Kowal (Thought Police enforcer) and Robert Silverberg. There is a fair bit of heated argument therein.

The signatories of the Truesdale petition include:

Gene Wolfe, Jerry Pournelle, Harlan Ellison, Sheila Finch, Jack McDevitt, Robert Silverberg, Larry Niven, Barry N. Malzberg, Norman Spinrad, Gregory Benford, C. J. Cherryh, Mike Resnick, David Gerrold, Jack Dann, Paul Levinson, Nancy Kress, Susan Shwartz, Harry Turtledove, David Brin, Mercedes Lackey, Cyd Athens, Allen Steele, Chuck Rothman, Amy Sterling Casil, Lillian Csernica, Brad R. Torgersen, Mary Turzillo, Vernor Vinge, Jay Werkheiser, Janis Ian and Darrell Schweitzer.

Aside from those already mentioned, namely Silverberg, Rensick and Malzberg; the signatories Brin, Shwartz, Ellison, Levinson, Turtledove, Dann, Gerrold, Ian, Rothman (who as that link on his name verifies, refuses to acknowledge that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist!) and Schweitzer are Jewish (that I know of). Also consult this article (the update at the bottom of the article) for why Paul Levinson, a former president of the SFWA, likewise has no excuse for signing the petition. Also this article (an update) for why Susan Shwartz has no excuse. The other genre Jews get off easy (and they don’t necessarily deserve it… ).

Ground Control to Major Tom, commencing countdown, engines on…

I am on planet Zog, get me out of here.

I just gotta digress a little to mention something – Janis Ian!! The singer! And yes Jewish singer. Yes same Janis Ian. To those of you old enough to remember, remember the 1980 movie Foxes with a young Jodie Foster (good movie btw), well remember that song from the movie Fly too High? That was Ian. I love that song, brings back memories. Her other hit was At Seventeen. And her Stars is a haunting, beautiful track and worth noting as well (covered by Nina Simone, Ian’s friend at one time). Yeah Ian got involved in SF later. Bizarro. OK digression over.

Now nobody in the comments to that radishreviews blog posting and all the others in the SF blogosphere and the Twitterverse huffing and puffing about the Truesdale petition, both for and against, can be bothered to mention that DAVE TRUESDALE IS A FUCKING HOLOCAUST DENIER/REVISIONIST. 

Not one person, genre writer, editor, or fan. 

Not one. [I later discovered one reference to my outing of Truesdale for his Holocaust Revisionism when this whole Petition affair aired. I initially missed it. It was from one B Lynch (Twitter handle @BLynchBooks). See this Twitter thread over here, dated 10th February 2014. Note the thread is peppered with very left-wing pro-SFWA folk, and thus anti-Petition orientated. However at least B Lynch acknowledged the elephant in the room, to his credit.]

I mean I may have missed a cryptic reference to the Red Wolf outing Truesdale as a Holocaust Revisionist, perhaps on Twitter, I don’t know. [Turns out I did, see above addition] That is over the last week, when this petition went public and made news in the SF Internet world. But for sure no public EXPLICIT reference was made anywhere to Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism and my uncovering all this at this very blog. Way back in 2011. I will point out that there has been some traffic to my blog series on Truesdale since this whole petition made news, but not much. So I knew there was no real reference to Truesdale filling the shoes of the late James P Hogan anywhere in the SF Internet sphere. And certainly everybody is keeping mum. It’s just that some people web searching for ‘Dave Truesdale’ in light of his recent petition, have stumbled upon my blog, that’s all.

So Truesdale has no credibility here, whatsoever. Who cares what Truedale thinks about anything relating to political affairs and controversies, in and out of the genre community, given that he is a Holocaust Revisionist? That should be an OBVIOUS  rhetorical question, but chillingly I am the only person asking it.

And somebody coming along and saying Truesdale has been accused of Holocaust Revisionism or is an alleged Holocaust Revisionist, still would not be good enough. Frankly it would be pathetic because Truesdale is indisputably a Holocaust Denier/Revisionist. To even debate it or argue over it would be wincingly obtuse, as I have made clear. Although extreme obtuseness is the default setting for the genre community.

So let me point out what nobody else has here: those signing a petition – drawn up by a HOLOCAUST REVISIONIST – against the fall-out from what I myself have gone on record as considering a ridiculous and shameful witch-hunt, are how can I put it, being more than a little counter-productive and well … oblivious! To put it mildly. Would they sign up a similar or identical petition drawn up by the odious Theodore Beale, a misogynist, homophobe, anti-black racist and anti-Semite? I would think not, because Beale is simply beyond the pale (and has even been expelled from the SFWA). And not only to the idiot far Left moral relativists in the community, but to anybody who is not a reactionary redneck who knows what Beale has to say on gays, women, blacks…

If Holocaust Revisionist genre writer James P Hogan was still living, and he drew up the petition rather than Truesdale, would all those Jewish genre figures sign it? If Hogan was still alive and came to Resnick’s and Malzberg’s defense, would the latter two be all polite and welcome Hogan’s aid? Would the Jewish Steven Gould, the president of the SFWA, still be so polite in any hypothetical e-mail replies to Hogan in such a scenario, even if disagreeing with Hogan (the way Gould has been politely disagreeing with Truesdale)? Would Gould bother to reply at all?

Remember it was with Hogan’s death, that Truesdale outed himself as a Holocaust Denier/Revisionist (it’s all in the archives of this blog, in the series I have already linked to further up. I am not going over that ground again for the love of Odin. If you are brain dead as many are in this community, that is your problem, not mine).

Yet Truesdale, the Holocaust Revisionist, apparently is not beyond the pale! It is absurd. It’s a black comedy and I swear it’s beyond me to articulate the punch line, if there is one.

What are the signatories going to say? Jewish and Gentile, but especially Jewish. Are they going to pull a Rothman (aka a Lieder), and deny that Truesdale the Holocaust Revisionist is a Holocaust Revisionist?! Even the harshly anti-Israel Nick Mamatas has conceded that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist (he did so at his blog after getting involved in a flame-war with myself). Do these Jewish genre figures not know about how I have exposed Truesdale as a Holocaust Revisionist?! A review of this blog’s contents will reveal that even though this blog is predictably out in the wilderness (especially since I haven’t blogged in about half a year), plenty genre figures, Jewish and Gentile, know all about the Season of the Red Wolf. The archives have not gone away. This blog is still up.

Are they going to say, yes they know Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist, but what does it matter? Are they going to say… well what could they say? Say they didn’t know about my blog, or they didn’t want to know or don’t want to know, which begs a few questions… Are they going to say my series on Truesdale and gang is too difficult to comprehend, it’s too much like Quantum Mechanics? Well only if you are a brain-dead cretin really. And yes there are more than a few out there. No kidding. Or to repeat myself – are they going to do a Lieder/Rothman, or a Stross? I fucking hope not, for their sakes. And Susan Shwartz for one has no excuse.

Oh wait I know what they will do. They will do what they have already done. Ignore the brontosaurus in the fridge, ignore the fact that Dave Tuesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist/Denier. That’s it.

Now the sane readers of this blog (a distinct minority for sure) may rightly ask the question, since it is an obvious one to ask: why don’t Truesdale’s detractors and the critics of the Petition’s signatories – and naturally several of these critics are Jewish (eg Lisa Goldstein), even as the inadvertent catalysts for all this, Resnick and Malzberg, are Jewish – not criticize them for signing a petition drawn up by a Holocaust Fucking Denier?! And not point out that Truesdale himself is a Holocaust Denier?! Whatever the merits or otherwise of Truesdale’s petition, whichever side you take, who cares for a petition that is naturally going to be perceived as heavily political and divisive, that is drawn up by a Holocaust Revisionist? I mean when you are up against the genre Thought Police airheads who call the shots, better not to rally around the agitprop of a Holocaust Denier. You think?

One of the answers to this question, and plenty of  the petition’s critics know all about this blog of mine, is that the petition’s critics are largely my own.

As the archives of this blog reveal, I have offended greatly the far Left Thought Police brigade that dominates SF (of which Luhrs is definitely a member), with their moral and cultural relativism, their ‘new’ anti-Semitism at worst or their apologetics for new anti-Semitism at best, their going along with the Thought Crime of Islamophobia, their humourless militant feminism (witness this latest nervous breakdown that catalyzed this very article) and related. However what really sticks out there is the SF genre’s Leftists largely being guilty of either fashionable anti-Semitism as disingenuous anti-Israelism or apologetics and whitewashing of contemporary anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Israelism (just see my chapters 10 and 11 in my China Mieville series for what I am getting at).

So the PC Thought Police of the genre community – Luhrs, Lisa Goldstein and Mary Robinette Kowal included – have tied their hands, they have painted themselves into a corner. They can’t point out the fact that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist without pointing to this blog with a thumbs up, since I and I alone have revealed the ugly facts in all their gory details re Truesdale, I alone have the smoking gun; but that would mean acknowledging that I have exposed very real anti-Semitism in the pro genre community. It would mean giving me even grudging and lukewarm praise. Now the same genre figures – writers, editors, fans, and they include John Scalzi himself, a former president of the SFWA – who have dismissed me as a loon and worse (as has Truesdale) are cognitively incapable of that. It is not only that they would have to swallow a bitter pill and have their egos take a bit of a battering. It is something more sinister. They would have to pay even passing recognition to anti-Semitism in the here and now, in our wider society and notably in the genre community itself and this bigotry’s pathetic and flimsy disguises. Because after all, there is a domino effect. What psychoanalysts call free-ranging associations. If they acknowledge the work I have done exposing Truesdale as a Holocaust Revisionist, then well what about the other anti-Semites I have exposed at this blog (even though not guilty of Holocaust Revisionism)? The latter new anti-Semitism the more acceptable, respectable and fashionable kind for sure, but anti-Semitism and extreme and vicious anti-Semitism at that. Many (I’m not saying all of them) of these genre Leftists critical of the Truesdale Petition and the signatories, are left-wing anti-Semites or apologists for liberal anti-Semites or scared to death of acknowledging any of this… To throw a spanner in the works, at least one of the petition’s signatories, namely Rothman, denies that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist (never mind the fact that I don’t think much of the witch hunt against Resnick and Malzberg and its consequent fall-out re the SFWA; their militant over-the-top feminism in other words).

In other words, facing the ugly facts re Truesdale would open up a can of worms that the SF community as a whole is desperate to keep closed. To acknowledge Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism, would mean unraveling a helluva lot more than Truesdale’s extreme obtuseness, hypocrisy and bigotry to which he is naturally oblivious. I mean by this that these genre cultural relativist liberals openly mocking Truesdale and those who have signed the petition, don’t want to go anywhere near China Mieville’s Jew-hatred, genre Court Jewry covering for Mieville and worse, Kathryn Cramer’s anti-Semitism, the late Iain Banks’s likewise (the Jewish Brin and the Jewish Gaiman fawned all over him with his passing), the anti-Semitism of so many others, from Hal Duncan to Michael Bishop and Ken McLeod, the embarrassing screw-ups of Felix Gilman, Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross, the Jewish self-loathing of Anna Tambour, Lavie Tidhar and Charles Stross, and let’s be honest here, not just these three. Hardly.

There is Scott Edelman, Rose Fox, Felix Gilman, Laura Anne Gilman, Nir Yaniv, Cory Doctorow, Rachel Swirsky (aside from small fry such as relatively well-known genre fan Mark Pontin. Tim Lieder is more mad than anything else. He is just off his rocker, all emotion no brain). And there is the hardcore Jewish self-loathing of prof Farah Mendlesohn, a caricature of the Israel hating far Left liberal ‘Jewish’ professor (now at Anglia Ruskin University in the UK). I have never even bothered mentioning her before at this blog! God knows how many others… The thing is there is a plague of self-hating Jews among the liberal Ashkenazi set, at the dawn of the twenty-first century. It’s anything but uncommon, anything but. [To any self-hating genre Jews out there I forgot to mention, and I know there are a lot of you, this is how you know you are a self-hating Jew, even as you will naturally deny it – if you think my articles on the Jew-hating Gentiles I criticize at this blog, such as Mieville, Kathryn Cramer, Mamatas, Michael Bishop, Hal Duncan and others, and the self-hating Jews such as Stross and Tidhar, are wrong-headed, inaccurate, unfair, delusional, fallacious, rather than plain speaking and factual, then you are a self-hating Jew. If you can’t be bothered to read any of that, but go along with what the fashionably dumb anti-Israel genre Left say about the Season of the Red Wolf anyhow, then you are likewise a self-hating Jew. You don’t have to agree with everything I write, hardly. However if you don’t get the fundamentals here, then you are what you are. Naturally enough if you are not Jewish but concur with the self-hating Jews re the Season of the Red Wolf, then you are just a Gentile Jew-hater]

Getting back on track, all this rabid anti-Semitism and more detailed at my blog, with the smoking guns, the original source material whether they be forum commentary, tweets, blog postings, letters… Heck the previous article to this one gives a comprehensive overview of  this blog’s history, a brief description of each and every blog article that I have posted up, with a clickable link to them all. This article is number 107. [Later edit: I have moved that article, ‘the Zombie Chronicles’ and updated it, hence the link above is not valid any longer, that article is now here]

For example, Nick Mamatas has tweeted contempt the way of the Truesdale petition and Truesdale himself, yet cannot bring up the fact that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist, even though he is the only genre pro who has publicly and grudgingly conceded the point that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist (even if  a little cryptically). Mamatas cannot do so, because Mamatas wouldn’t want to be reminded of this embarrassing foul-up of his (tangentially related to my exposé of Truesdale), even as he has just lied about it all, misrepresented the facts at his blog, as he had to do, to save face. Not that anybody cares, but still… And associated with that foul-up of Mamatas’s, the broader picture of left-wing anti-Semitism, which Mamatas would not want to go anywhere near. In fact he vehemently denies (to myself) that left-wing anti-Semitism even exists! And yes Mamatas is himself anti-Semitic. That’s just the thing.

Another case in point, Charles Stross, Mamatas’s fellow anti-Israel genre writer (the Jews being among the most egregious offenders in this regard), who is on record for blaming “the provisional wing of the Tea Party” for the Boston marathon bombing the day it happened, likewise tweets contempt the way of Truesdale re the SFWA petition. Stross the Jew in Name Only, who is ‘cognizant’ of this blog, can’t be bothered to mention Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism naturally enough. Then again Stross dismissed that Holocaust Revisionism series of mine with an offhand Tweet (lowest part of the article), without reading a single word of it; the catalyzed encouragement in this regard came by way of his fellow anti-Semite and far Leftist, the British academic Paul Graham Raven, who never read a single word in that series neither.

I mean for the likes of the anti-Israel (i.e. anti-Semitic) genre Left that pretends no anti-Semitism whatsoever, to acknowledge that I have exposed Truesdale as a Holocaust Revisionist, would mean recognizing that I have actually exposed extreme anti-Semitism; and this begs the question – so why do the self-same left-wing genre Thought Police openly pour scorn, mockery and disdain on the Red Wolf blogger exposing extreme anti-Semitism (Holocaust Revisionism)? The question only has one answer, and it’s not a pretty one. It’s worse than just having egg on their faces. It’s much worse than that. It would mean having to face their flimsily disguised prejudice against Jewry head on, sans disguise, a prejudice they don’t even begin to acknowledge. Or at best, their cowardice in the face of this prejudice from within the genre community. And naturally all this has to be avoided at all costs. 

The result of this pervasive taboo that is the stubborn refusal to acknowledge all anti-Semitism – from genre Jewry as much as Gentiles, if anything genre Jewry are the most stringent enforcers of this taboo – couldn’t be clearer, more nakedly revealed than over this latest political affair in genre circles. In no other political brouhaha in the SF genre community is this taboo more obviously apparent, glaring in neon colours, than this latest one re the Truesdale SFWA petition. The fact that Truesdale is James P Hogan’s successor in the worst possible way, and the fact that NOBODY – not Truesdale’s dismissive critics, Jewish and Gentile alike, and naturally not Jewish genre heavyweight writers in support of Truesdale’s petition – can appear to acknowledge this publicly, is all the proof you need of this taboo in operation. And where it has led the community. Flat bang into Alice in David Dukeville land. Cannot make this up.

So if none of  these genre figures, including well-known Jewish writers of considerable reputation, could care about acknowledging a SF peer’s Holocaust Revisionism, they could care even less, not a smidgen of pigeon shit’s worth, for contemporary ‘new’ anti-Semitism in the genre community, that is as dishonest and relentless anti-Israelism, as demonization of the Jew nation. 

Mieville, Mamatas, Kathryn Cramer, Tambour and gang can breathe easy.

Then again they already knew that.

Heck like Truesdale, they will tell you they are not anti-Semitic in the slightest. And the PC Thought Police who get their panties all twisted over the Truesdale petition, but cannot be bothered to mention the fact of Truesdale’s Holocaust Denialism even as many of them are ‘cognizant’ of this blog, are these anti-Semites’ staunchest and most loyal defenders.

Perhaps another point is worth mentioning re these Jewish genre writers and fandom. They don’t want to acknowledge anti-Semitism and would rather focus on ridiculous and pathetic side-shows, because acknowledging anti-Semitism and its pervasiveness both in and out of the genre community means facing an ugly reality and by association, Iran’s drive for a nuclear bomb arsenal, the White House’s appeasement of Iran, Israel standing alone and with anything but courage and resolve, Kerry’s threats against the Jews (and American Jewish leaders grovelling before Kerry as I write this up, and praising him to the skies as a gag gag genuine peace-maker. This grovelling and fawning before Jew-haters is not just a problem unique to the Jewish genre Left naturally enough, it is a pervasive problem among Jewry itself), the Muslim fanaticism widespread in the Middle-East, all that region’s turmoil. The sense that history is repeating in the most terrible way…

These Jewish genre folk (never mind non-Jews) are in the escapism business, it’s been in many cases their livelihood.

And in escapism they will stay, till death or ugly brutal reality comes crashing down over their heads.

Whichever comes first.

It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

And scary.

UPDATED  19th February

Hilarious.

So, sure as you would expect, a couple of genre folk pick up this article on their ‘SF gossip’ surfing – and of course it is just too juicy to ignore – so they tell their mates and I get a spike in traffic (17th and 18th Feb).

Now I know they are all most likely of the moral relativist far Left Thought Police persuasion, namely those critical of the Truesdale Petition, all huffing and puffing about alleged sexism, but scared to death of acknowledging even the most base Jew-hatred in (and out of) the genre community; and as I make clear further up, Jewish genre folk critical of the Truesdale petition, Jewish feminists especially, are those most shamefully guilty in this respect (given their deafening silence on all forms of extreme anti-Semitism from their genre peers, whilst getting high blood pressure from trumped up charges of sexism).

The thing is, and this is why I think that those (in the main) who have suddenly come to the blog to check this article out, are of the far Left variety that I scathingly mock in this very article and elsewhere; they are scared stiff to acknowledge to myself who they are exactly and where the traffic is coming from. They have covered their tracks. In my blog stats, it tells me my hits are coming  from … donotlink.com

Here is a techie’s take on the donotlink service:

We’re all aware that every time you link to a web site, you inevitably push it up in search engine rankings. Over time, that means a site will appear at the top of a Google search result. Sometimes you want to link to those sites without helping them boost their search results. Do Not Link is a service for just that.

Do Not Link is easy to use. Just drop the URL of the questionable site into Do Not Link and it gives you a URL that won’t push up those results in search engines. It’s simple, but super handy for linking to those awful trolling articles you really want to talk about but don’t want to push up in Google or to fraudllent sites you need to talk about but don’t want to help out. 

Of course, it’s subjective. One person’s “awful trolling article” is another person’s admirable exposé or similar. Yet when it comes to the genre Thought Police, if it is them, they would clearly see this article as ideal for use by Do Not Link. Namely an article they really want to talk about, but don’t want to push up in Google, and let me add, an article whose author (in this case the Red Wolf) they don’t want cottoning on to who exactly is checking out his blog. If you click on the donotlink tag from your blog stats, it just redirects you back to your own blog.

There is another reason that favours the genre Thought Police visiting here (rather than say the petition’s supporters in the main), that reinforces the point I make above. Namely the articles these anonymous folk are checking out at this blog all of a sudden, is very revealing of the mindset of the Thought Police, and only the scared stiff Thought Police. Why do I say that? Well sure they have been directed to this article, but you would think if they were intelligent, open-minded kind of folk, who were truly concerned about bigotry, as the moral relativist Leftists pretend to be, that they would actually trawl through the Truesdale series (where I expose Truesdale as a Holocaust Revisionist, among other Jew-hate group think gangsterism from others, including editor Sam Hidaka) to see for themselves. After all the smoking gun isn’t in this article, it’s in the Truesdale-centered series (for the most part) that I link to in this original article. Yet very very few of the donotlink gang even bothered. Hardly any. And those very few that did, clicked on the Introduction and the chapter 7 I link to further up. None of the other uh eleven articles in that series. Well hardly anybody. And not the pivotal flame-war itself from the Asimov’s Forum (well one person that was it) in Postscript Part A, not the other smoking gun chapters 2, 3 and 4. The thing is in that very introduction to that series I link to right up at the beginning of this article (where I first mention that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist), I give a brief overview of that series, with clickable links to all the other twelve articles in that series, and descriptions of each and every article. I made that series very easy to navigate and follow. Makes no difference to those coming to this blog all of a sudden. The thing is to the moral relativist genre twits who see sexism and anti-black racism under every bush, cat and supermarket trolley (yes there is sexism and anti-black racism, but these guys go overboard), it truly is a case of anti-Semitism yaaaaaaaawn. Whatever. I mean I am explicit in this very article of the anti-Semitism from the likes of Mieville, Cramer, Mamatas, Tambour and others, yet nobody, or hardly anybody, was remotely interested in following up on any of that, and checking out my articles on these characters (well very very few hits there).

This is a pattern that I have seen constantly from the genre Thought Police, when they used to tweet contempt and dismissal my way. They would focus on the article they were Tweeting or (rarely) blogging contempt for, get it all wrong naturally enough, and ignore all the articles around, including the most recent posts of mine at the time, no matter what the headings/titles of the articles were…

It proves the point I make about the genre Thought Police, scared to death of recognizing, even in passing, even vaguely, anti-Semitism and moral relativism in all or any of its aspects.

And no the traffic is not coming in the main from the Theodore Beale bots and paleocon and right-wing or libertarian types, I took that into consideration. Sure some of those guys have a lot in common with the left-wing Thought Police genre folk (when it comes to anti-Semitism), but they could care less about covering their tracks. They don’t give a hoot. It’s not their style.

I did take into consideration that the ‘donotlink gang’ could be others in support of the petition (whether their names are on the petition or not), they naturally don’t want egg on their faces neither. In fact if you think about it, they have even more to lose here than the genre Thought Police!

After all, those signing a petition drawn up by a Holocaust Revisionist, the Jews especially, have blundered. And this is the ONLY blog that reveals that.

I do think that if the traffic was coming from those in support of the Truesdale petition, they would be far more likely to actually trawl through my Holocaust Revisionism series. To see what Truesdale actually has to say re the Holocaust, to scrutinize that series for themselves. That’s just a little bit of speculation on my part. Or would they all respond as Rothman did, and run away as quickly as possible (I don’t mean deny that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist, as Rothman did)? I don’t think so. Yet I cannot be entirely sure naturally enough.

However I will speculate that for the most part at least, it’s the loony Left brigade popping in, given the number of visitors, given the fact that the ‘fingerprints’ of these visitors is typical of genre Thought Police swarming (i.e. their general lack of real interest and follow-up, desperation to cover their tracks).

It was most likely a combination largely of critics and a few supporters of the Truesdale petition. There are a very few in-house closed SF related forums, the SFWA members’ forum just being one of them…

Yet note the persistent silence on Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism, even after my article was quietly publicized by genre folk behind closed doors. Do a Google search on ‘Dave Truesdale’ and the ‘Holocaust’, and the only returns are to my blog (I’m not counting those url news aggregators and similar). Didn’t pick up anything on Twitter, facebook likewise re Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism, and I mean in the last few days, never mind before that.

Proves my point exactly.

Proves the point of the very title of this article I chose, ‘ …the hatred that dares not to be acknowledged. Least of all by genre Jewry’.

These folk cannot begin to acknowledge publicly Truesdale’s Holocaust Denial/Revisionism. The fact that the vast majority of them cannot even be bothered to read up my series here where I expose Truesdale indisputably and unequivocally – never mind how my critics (the moral relativist self-righteous Left so concerned *apparently* about bigotry of all types) are so transparently desperate to publicly not disclose any of this – means they are scared to death about acknowledging Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism even to themselves! As the archives of this blog reveal (check out the harebrained obscene responses from the likes of Mark Pontin, Tim Lieder, Felix Gilman, Paul Graham Raven, Charles Stross and Chuck Rothman to that Holocaust Revisionism series! Never mind Nick Mamatas’s blunder. No none of  them actually bothered to read that series. That’s just the point. Mamatas a little bit, after his blunder). And these people cannot stand Truesdale and they are not afraid to say it (they have labeled him sexist, reactionary and whatever else), except to acknowledge his Holocaust Revisionism naturally enough! Never mind all the ‘new’ left-wing anti-Semitism from genre pros that I reveal at this blog, and I’m just skating the surface.

And they cannot publicly acknowledge Truesdale’s obscene bigotry and the more fashionable liberal anti-Semitism for all the reasons I have already stated in this main pre-updated article.

And those folk – especially the Jews – who signed the petition, the only excuse is that you didn’t know about my blog (even didn’t want to know and still don’t want to know. I know for a fact that such an excuse, ‘oh didn’t know about the Truesdale exposé at your blog’ is not warranted in every case…), because it’s not only in the Truesdale centered series from April/May 2011 that Truesdale’s Holocaust Denial/Revisionism is brought to public attention. I continually brought up the point of Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism (always with a link or two), if anything excessively so, in late 2011, 2012, 2013, as the context and circumstances warranted.

To sum up, Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism embarrasses everybody, those who signed the petition, but those critical of Truesdale as well! Because the latter (like the former) cannot even now acknowledge Truesdale’s Holocaust Denial/Revisionism, even as they openly imply that he is a sexist cave-man (on twitter, blogs, facebook), but not an anti-Semite! The former (those who signed the petition or supported it in whatever way) cannot call out the Thought Police for absurd hypocrisy, accusing the former of sexism whilst remaining silent on Truesdale’s Holocaust Denial, because the former signed the Truesdale petition (and so many of them are Jews)!

You have to laugh. I mean it’s a black comedy. Oh My God I used the term black comedy. Probably proves to the Thought Police that I’m a racist now. He said ‘black comedy’, he did, he did, I knew he was a white supremacist KKK type. Now we have the evidence for it.

If you know the genre Thought Police, you will know that I am only half joking. These people are that crazy.

These genre Thought Police must be bemoaning the fact that I am not one of them, that is not one in thrall to Islamophilia, Jew-nation hatred that pretends it’s nothing of the sort, and a dupe of humourless militant feminism, in thrall to trumped up sexism gibberish; or at best that I am not one of the quivering Jews desperate to keep quiet about all this anti-Semitism of whatever type, and sweep it all under the carpet. If I were one of them, they would be tweeting and blogging about my exposé of Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism with delight, a big thumbs up and openly linking to this very article. They would be praising me to the skies, I would have heroic status among them, they would be all… ‘good on the Red Wolf, three cheers for the Red Wolf’. I would be all over the liberal SF blogosphere, facebook and the SF Twitterverse.

Pertinently enough, I published this on the 5th May 2011, in part 8 of my Holocaust Revisionism series:

As a consequence – even though I don’t really expect any *public* outrage from any notable Jewish figure/s in the genre community to these revelations – I am calling for a professional disassociation/s from Dave Truesdale in light of his clearly outing himself as a Holocaust Denier/Revisionist. However he may want to spin it.

Public outrage! Hahahahaahaaaaaaa. Yeah well, it was a very safe bet. Hey the Jew exposing hardcore Jew-hatred in the genre community is out in Antarctica. What else is new? These Jews would only express an opinion if Truesdale grabbed some genre female’s breasts at a Con somewhere (think Ellison and Willis), or make sure to give a public opinion about the SFWA Bulletin editorial/committee decisions and procedures in the wake of the recent Malzberg-Resnick kerfluffle. As it turned out. Now that’s something they will hurl themselves into! And be vocal about. Whether for or against.

Actually these genre Jews are a microcosm for liberal American Jewry as a whole (not just American Jews to be fair).

Really you have to laugh. I am. I mean it is fucking hilarious. As Richard Pryor pointed out, “comedy is tragedy”.

It is indeed.

UPDATED 7th March

So guess what! I discovered the source of the donotlink gang! OK this whole brouhaha has long since died down, but I mention it here anyhow, for the sake of the record. For the sake of completeness.

It didn’t take a Sherlock Holmes intellect or detective work. It was Natalie Luhrs herself and her followers on Twitter. Here are the relevant Tweets.

Natalie Luhrs ‏@eilatan Feb 17
YOU GUYS. This dude is, well. http://www.donotlink.com/dGW (TW: accusations of anti-Semitism and pointing out authors who may be/are Jewish)

Michigan J Octopus ‏@emilytheslayer Feb 17
@eilatan right, him, I’d almost forgotten about him.

Natalie Luhrs ‏@eilatan Feb 17
@emilytheslayer This is my first encounter, I think?

Michigan J Octopus ‏@emilytheslayer Feb 17
@eilatan he is Known.

Natalie Luhrs ‏@eilatan Feb 17
@emilytheslayer So I have gathered.

Ann Somerville ‏@ann_somerville Feb 17
@eilatan …then you obvs didn’t care and SO YOU ARE THE WORST JEW/PERSON ON THE PLANET. But no enforcement of thought there

Natalie Luhrs ‏@eilatan Feb 17
@ann_somerville …I’m a non-denominational Christian deist. So yes: I am a terrible Jew.

Ann Somerville ‏@ann_somerville Feb 17
@eilatan UNCLEAN UNCLEAN!

Natalie Luhrs ‏@eilatan Feb 17
@ann_somerville Pretty much, yeah.

Kip Manley ‏@kiplet Feb 17
@eilatan He actually mentioned ME in one of his rants, which tells you rather a lot.

Natalie Luhrs
‏@eilatan
@kiplet That he’s an equal opportunity ranter? Are you Thought Police, too?

Kip Manley ‏@kiplet Feb 17
@eilatan I’m nothing! I’m nobody! I said something nice to somebody non grata on Twitter, and So.

Natalie Luhrs ‏@eilatan Feb 17
@kiplet How Dare You.

Kip Manley ‏@kiplet Feb 17
@eilatan So many lines to cross, so little time.

Natalie Luhrs ‏@eilatan Feb 17
@kiplet I know! This genre-destruction is a lot of work.

There you have it! So I was right, it was genre Thought Police, and only genre Thought Police. Yes the donotlink url takes you to this article naturally enough. Notice how none of the Tweeters can be bothered to mention what this article is actually about at all, just supposedly not to be trusted hysterical and over-the-top allusions to anti-Semitism (Ann Somerville’s tweets are asinine, ridiculous and less than rational), not their context, not even vague or hazy allusions to their actual content. As if they would know. They don’t want to know. Scared stiff. They can’t even be bothered to mention that I accuse Truesdale of Holocaust Revisionism, when it is central to this whole piece! Nada on that front. They tiptoe around it like it’s not even there. Like I write further up, hardly any of Luhrs’s followers (as it turned out) even bothered to check out the case for Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism themselves. And of course I don’t accuse Luhrs of anti-Semitism. You would never know that going by her and her gang’s twit Tweeting. Very oversensitive there, aren’t we? Of course Luhrs and gang don’t give a damn about acknowledging any even extreme anti-Semitism from their genre peers and colleagues, even genre peers they consider reprehensible and even quasi-fascist. As their tweeting on  this very article proves emphatically and beyond reasonable doubt! Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is greeted not even with a yawn, not even that. It’s not remotely addressed by these folk.

As far as kiplet/Kip Manley is concerned, sure he’s a nobody in SF circles, but I mention him in passing over here, given the context of his tweeting parley with Rose Fox, who is a somebody in SF (and Charles Platt’s daughter), and Fox has been the focus of several articles of mine. Not that you would ever know that from Manley, nor the first thing about what that was all about.

So Luhrs and gang are predictably obtuse, scared stiff not only of acknowledging even vaguely, even cryptically the charge of Truesdale’s Holocaust Denialism from the Red Wolf (never mind the actual smoking gun evidence I link to in this respect!), even as they consider him a reactionary sexist cave-man; because scared stiff naturally of going anywhere near the more run-of-the-mill anti-Semitism that infects the liberal genre community (and detailed in the archives of this blog) and wider liberal society like a cancer.  And naturally the fact that I don’t think much of their hysterical trumped up sexism charges against all and sundry. Their quaking tweeting on my blog and this very original article *specifically*, where the 16 ton brontosaurus in the room is not even vaguely alluded to (i.e. Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism), and the pathetic attempt by Luhrs to cover her tracks and not boost my profile on search engines, only proves my point about the genre Thought Police and why one cannot take them remotely seriously. That is their in-your-face moral relativism, their blunt and stubborn refusal to acknowledge even the most extreme, albeit oblivious Jew-hatred that is Holocaust Revisionism (from a conservative SF editor/critic they all hate no less!) for all the reasons I already state further up.

So their response to the red wolf blogger, the one who  gives them the revelation that Truesdale – who they hate – is a Holocaust Fucking Revisionist, (and all the evidence they could ever need in that department, not that they want to know!) can be summed up as…

Luhrs: I’m a non-denominational Christian deist, so I’m a terrible Jew 

Somerville: Unclean Unclean!

It’s just so pathetic. Such extreme cognitive dissonance. Boggles the mind.

FURTHER UPDATE 6th March

Just thought I would mention this, because it is even more black comedy gold.

So guess what? Tim Lieder of Dybbuk Press, one of my biggest uh fans, blogs on this very article, and he continues to repeat his cretinous ‘beyond full retard’ MO (just check those Lieder articles). Namely Dave Truesdale ain’t no Holocaust Denier/Revisionist, in Lieder’s eyes! Well if you know all about my Lieder series, you will know that already. Lieder has stuck to his guns on that front persistently, no matter how I have exposed him, that is exposed Lieder for not knowing what he is talking about. Never mind Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism (and others like editor Sam Hidaka [if anything I let Hidaka off the hook too much] and short story writer Marian Powell).

Here is Lieder, in Tim ‘where is my mind?’ Lieder style. Lieder you are truly in class of your own. http://marlowe1.livejournal.com/2190617.html

He entitles his post on me, ‘The Hobgoblin of Small Minds – aka Furry Jew rants again’. To those who don’t know about my altercations with Lieder, he labels me the Furry Jew.

Some choice quotes:

You can’t keep an internet crank down – https://seasonoftheredwolf.wordpress.com/2014/02/14/david-duke-in-wonderland-the-dave-truesdale-petition-re-the-sffwa-thought-police-and-the-hatred-that-dares-not-to-be-acknowledged-least-of-all-by-genre-jewry/ – Apparently Furry Jew has released another tl;dr wall of text in order to repeat his assertion that Dave Truesdale is a Holocaust denier. He goes by a bunch of things that Truesdale wrote about the dead James Hogan that were less than “Fuck that Guy” levels of acrimony.

And just so we are clear. James Hogan actually was a Holocaust denier so fuck that guy.

What drives Furry Jew at the moment is the fact that Dave Truesdale’s entire SFWA “the PC Police don’t want to us to see nekkid ladies” petition was argued and discussed without ONCE anyone citing Furry Jew’s long and tedious expose concerning Truesdale’s alleged Holocaust denial. Oh sure, a sane and rational person could think that it wasn’t important to the conversation or that it was something that couldn’t be shoehorned into a conversation that was already full of topics like sexism, editorial oversight, the proper audience for a trade magazine, First Amendment, red baiting and old people.

But Furry Jew is not sane or rational. In fact Furry Jew sees himself as the crusader against all that is anti-Semitic and Communist.

He also says nice things about anti-Semitic racist POS Vox Day (aka Theodore Beale) but what’s a little anti-Semitism between friends?

That’s all to be expected from Lieder, he has been endlessly denying Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism from Day One. And if you want to know why and how, it’s all in my Lieder articles. And other delusional garbage in that vein from Lieder (yeah I don’t know why I bother with him, he’s such a hack, a wannabe hack really, but he is so witless, such an easy target, so delusional, that I find him endlessly fascinating). Fuck Hogan, but not his fellow Holocaust Revisionist Dave Truesdale, hey Lieder? You king of supreme witlessness you.

And as I make clear in this original article, Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is relevant because the debate/argument here is inherently political, since it covers topics such as alleged misogyny and alleged sexism, not issues relating to science fiction criticism per se. And why would any Jewish genre pro writer/editor/fan especially, have any dealings whatsoever, professional or otherwise, with a Holocaust Fucking Revisionist?! Lieder of course doesn’t think that an issue. Then again what to expect from the witless Lieder? The reasons that Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is not brought up by anybody, whether for or against the petition, is already covered in this article, but it’s through the holes in the head of poor Tim Lieder. Then again to Lieder, the Holocaust Denier Truesdale with all his wormy Holocaust Revisionist newspeak ain’t no Holocaust Denier.

I say nice things about Vox Day aka Theodore Beale???!!!

I write further up above re Beale:

Would they sign up a similar or identical petition drawn up by the odious Theodore Beale, a misogynist, homophobe, anti-black racist and anti-Semite? I would think not, because Beale is simply beyond the pale (and has even been expelled from the SFWA). And not only to the idiot far Left moral relativists in the community, but to anybody who is not a reactionary redneck who knows what Beale has to say on gays, women, blacks…

If that’s saying nice things about Beale, I wonder what not nice things about Beale would sound like to Lieder! So Lieder just transparently and breezily lies here, as is his style. I don’t even think he knows he does it. Fails basic reading comprehension. Lieder is confused here and projecting his witless and moronic knee-jerk defense of his anti-Semitic, anti-Israel peer Nick Mamatas, onto me (re Beale). It’s what catalyzed Lieder’s fever-brained attacks on my blog in the first place. Lieder doesn’t even notice further up in  this very article, that I allude to the fact that even Mamatas has grudgingly (albeit cryptically) acknowledged Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism.

Also Lieder, re the Emerson allusion that is “the hobgoblin of small minds”, the full quote is “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.” In your case, your persistent and obscenely dimwitted denial of Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is “foolishly consistent”. To put it mildly. Thing is it is way worse than that, it is so obscenely delusional and cretinous, beyond witless, that words fail me. The Thesaurus fails me. One ought to invent a neologism for Lieder’s specific off-the-charts asininity. Maybe we should call it a Liederism/Liederist, or a Lieder…

FURTHER UPDATE MARCH 16th

So some further Tweeting from other genre Thought Police airheads re this article, not that their Tweeting has anything whatsoever to do with this article, or even the actual contents of my blog, but that’s the nature of it all of course. I was of two minds whether to even bother posting them up and commentating on them, given that Tweedledum Fred Kiesche and Tweedledee Paul Weimer (@PrinceJvstin on Twitter) of SF Signal are such minor players on the SF scene (yet along with that other lightweight Tim Lieder, they are among my biggest ‘fans’) and they are just so tiresome and pathetic, even by the standards of the idiot Left Thought Police (which is saying a lot!). Twit Tweets from two of their twit followers included, notably Shaun Duke (whose Tweets catalyze it all), a contributor/co-host of the Skiffy and Fanty SFF website.

Tweets all date from March 13th:

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
It shouldn’t surprise these folks that sf fandom’s “left” really have no interest in hanging out with James May. Look what he writes.

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@shaunduke Which James May? (I know of two…)

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@FredKiesche The one that imagines himself as an sff writer.

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@shaunduke That *still* doesn’t narrow in down but I’ll just assume it’s nobody I know!

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@FredKiesche Search “James May John Scalzi” without quotes. You’ll find what I’m talking about 🙂

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@shaunduke And the first thing returned is another blogger, Romeo Woof Woof, that keeps threatening to retire (but never has). Thanks.

R. A. Kennedy ‏@RomeoRites
@FredKiesche @shaunduke Romeo Woof Woof? I’m guessing that’s not me.

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@RomeoRites @shaunduke In this case I was sort of using NATO phonetic alphabet.

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@FredKiesche Is…is that bad? Do I want to know?

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@shaunduke Ask @PrinceJvstin . MY BRAIN HURTS SO MUCH NOW, I THOUGHT HE WAS RETIRED //thud//

Paul Weimer ‏@PrinceJvstin
@FredKiesche @shaunduke he’s still not retired? Good grief.

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@PrinceJvstin Ye Gods and Little Fishes, no. https://seasonoftheredwolf.wordpress.com/

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@shaunduke Don’t say I didn’t warn you. https://seasonoftheredwolf.wordpress.com/

Paul Weimer ‏@PrinceJvstin
@FredKiesche you are going to have me read him again?! Between him, Hoyt and VD, I’ll go mad

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@PrinceJvstin I think his style has gone more confused. Makes those two look like models of editorial clarity.

Paul Weimer ‏@PrinceJvstin
@FredKiesche he hadn’t posted since August. I thought he was done. Alas!

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@FredKiesche @RomeoRites Bleck. This guy is a giant raving coocoo pants.

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@FredKiesche @RomeoRites I’m not sure he knows the difference between “analysis” and “bald assertion.”

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@FredKiesche @RomeoRites Bald

R. A. Kennedy ‏@RomeoRites
@shaunduke @FredKiesche Oh I see, kinda like, “He who must not be named.” Lest he reveal himself. He can yap on, that’s for sure.

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@RomeoRites @shaunduke Mostly because when you use his name, he’ll pick it up from tweets and work you into his next blog “essay”.

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@PrinceJvstin Updated an entry from mid-February to March 9. Still not scraped off our respective shoes.

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@RomeoRites @FredKiesche You can’t even use his nicknames now. He’ll find those, too.

R. A. Kennedy ‏@RomeoRites
@shaunduke @FredKiesche Bleddy hell! Like Blogron or Bloggermort. Dafter than a half scraped carrot.

Fred Kiesche ‏@FredKiesche
@RomeoRites @shaunduke Now we’re just insulting carrots.

R. A. Kennedy ‏@RomeoRites
@FredKiesche @shaunduke If that’s one of his nicknames, I’ll be for the chop.

shaunduke ‏@shaunduke
@RomeoRites @FredKiesche Bloggermort

R. A. Kennedy ‏@RomeoRites
@shaunduke @FredKiesche I like that name.

These Tweets are even more pathetic than Natalie Luhrs’s and followers, and I didn’t think that really possible; on the other hand when it comes to the idiot Left in the genre community, there are no limits to their obscene asininity. In fact these Tweets follow the very predictable and inadvertently revealing pattern that is the obscene brain-deadness of Kiesche and Weimar and their dumb dumb followers, given their previous tweeting on this blog, notably here. In that article Anna Tambour’s extreme, ugly and indisputable anti-Semitism is alluded to in all its naked glory, and Kiesche and Weimer can only tweet mindless insults my way (see self-same article). Then there is this Iain Banks themed article, in which the then living Iain Banks’s pathological and vicious Jew-hatred is alluded to, and the exact same derisive tweeting from Tweedledum & Tweedledee came my way (and in the process they were sucking up to one of my nemeses, the extreme anti-Israel ‘Jew’ Lavie Tidhar. Check that Banks article for their Tweets).

Tweedeldum and Tweedledee and gang aren’t bothered by the fact that they save their worst invective for me, when tweeting on my blog articles revealing with considerable evidence, the most base and extreme anti-Semitism; namely this one, in which Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism is the very centerpiece around which everything else is decoration. And they hate Truesdale, like all the Thought Police! And the other two mentioned directly above, namely the articles on the anti-Semites Anna Tambour and Iain Banks respectively.

What this tells us about Kiesche, Weimer and their peanut gallery is naturally lost on them. Oblivious. Then again I said as much in that Tambour focused article.

As with Luhrs and her gang (Ann Somerville included), note how these morons ignore the actual central hub of this whole lengthy essay, around which everything else I write revolves. Namely Dave Truesdale’s Holocaust Fucking Revisionism. And to repeat myself, the likes of Kiesche, Weimar and gang hate Truesdale, they hate his politics (as with Luhrs and her followers). In fact you would have no idea at all that my latest blog post is about, you know, a right-wing SF critic/editor’s Holocaust Denialism! going by these idiot Twitterers’ Twit Tweeting; and that my blog as a whole has as its central theme, the exposé of  anti-Semitism in the genre community. As I once remarked to Tobias Buckell who likewise thinks that the  most pathetic name-calling directed my way somehow shores up his position and refutes mine:

No I wouldn’t expect a coherent answer from the likes of Stross and Buckell (and the Apex SF crew as a whole). That’s not possible. Going by Buckell’s tweet ‘seriously whack shit’ (and Stross’s tweets likewise for that matter), nobody would know what on earth I was actually writing about. I mean I could be writing about calling for the excavation of the lost ruins of Atlantis under Antarctica, the invasion of China, bombing the Martians, endorsing some David Icke conspiracy on alien lizards in the White House feeding on human sacrifices, bringing back eugenics or remaking Heaven’s Gate going by Stross’s and Buckell’s fact-free tweets. Simply lame.

These idiots are so desperate to shore up their shaky delusions, which are numerous, that they really do uh think that calling me lame names sans evidence, somehow demolishes my argument/s. It’s not the ad hominems that are the problem in and of themselves, it’s that they don’t even attempt to back up their low opinion of myself with any even vague attempt or pretense of evidence or facts. Sure I call them idiots too, but I make it clear why they are such. Hmm let’s see, this is the only blog pointing out that amidst SF’s 49th nervous breakdown, namely the Truesdale SFWA petition, nobody on either side of the kerfluffle can be bothered to mention the fact that Truesdale is a Holocaust Denier/Revisionist. Then again this is the only blog that has the smoking gun re Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism. The response to these considerable revelations in this very article by the Red Wolf, from Tweedledum and Tweedelee and gang on Twitter: The Red Wolf/Romeo Woof Woof is confused, my style is worse than Hoyt and Vox Day, I’m dumber than a carrot. That’s insulting to carrots. Their ‘brains’ hurt. Let’s invent a new nickname for Romeo Woof Woof, Bloggermort!

Notice the heavy implication that I’m to the right of the reactionary Vox Day, when I’m not even a conservative and actually call out Vox Day in this article (and elsewhere) as a racist and a misogynist, a homophobic reactionary. Then again since when did these Thought Police idiots care for what I actually write. They have their bogey man to cast stones at, how else can they feel better about themselves?

Yaaaaaaawn. Projection Projection Projection. Wonder if these guys know what that is?
Truth is I think Tweedledum and Tweedledee and followers would miss me if I retired completely.

It’s difficult to know who is dumber – Tweedledum & Tweedledee and their little sect or Tim Lieder? How to quantify and measure it? Kiesche and Weimar and their gang of morons can’t be bothered to mention what this article – heck this very blog – *is actually about* (I don’t think that they actually know); they just dismiss me with name calling, which the Fairies have told ’em, really works! Then there is Tim Lieder who to his credit actually mentions the charge of Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism; Tweedledum and Tweedledee and their blind mice can’t be bothered to mention the man’s very name, any more than their fellow Thought Police peers, Luhrs and gang. However Lieder then undoes this lead (as in being less dumb, yeah it’s relative) he has on Tweedledum and Tweedledee by saying that I have no evidence for Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism! Of course Lieder has done this repeatedly (whilst simultaneously denying that he does it, just click on that latest Lieder gibberish blog post directed my way). And as a consequence, one could argue that Lieder sneaks ahead of Luhrs, Somerville etc., along with Kiesche, Wiemer, Duke, R. A. Kennedy in the obscene zombie obtuseness championship stakes. But it’s a close call, gotta say.

Further update (I know so many):

Look at this from the Jewish writer Jack Dann (who signed the petition), dated 16th February 2014, TWO DAYS after this original article went online.  Dann thanks Holocaust Denier Truesdale:

Tangent Online is airing a 1947 adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s story “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz.” Dave Truesdale dedicated the Tangent Online episode to yours truly because  I wrote a homage to Fitzgerald called “The Diamond Pit”. Thanks, Dave. That was very kind!

FEBRUARY 2015 UPDATE

It’s interesting – although that might not be the right word – to relate the fact that Dave Truesdale remains very much persona grata, among the big old movers and shakers in SF. That is he is still very much accepted by his peers, Jewish and Gentile alike. Rather, more accurately, those who were just fine communicating with him prior to this very revelation from February 2014, never mind when it was all first publicized. That is those folk who signed the Truesdale Petition, or at the very least some of them, major writers and editors… Why do I say that? Here is the Jewish Mike Resnick, with an article from Tangent (very much still Truesdale’s baby) dated January 2015. Note the buddy buddy intro, which I assume is written by Truesdale. Even if it isn’t (well who else?), Resnick has no problem whatsoever writing for Truesdale’s mag, Tangent. This, to repeat the point, is in 2015. RESNICK DOESN’T WANT TO KNOW. Liberal genre ‘Jewry’ just don’t want to know. Like liberal American Jews in general, not wanting to know about how Obama’s embrace of the Iranian mullahs threatens Israel’s very survival. And more in that vein. As in Obama’s frenzied Jew-hatred in general. Could Care Less. Microcosm of SFF genre Jews reflects the macrocosm of liberal Jews as a whole. Could Care Less.

Also this Tangent article dated October 2014 written by Gregory Benford, about his trip to Africa. Interesting that he also penned this previous article at Tangent, dated September 2014. I say interesting, because it’s about LonCon 2014, and how Benford, a giant in the field, perceived it as riddled through with unpleasant PC Marxism and related Leftist histrionics and neuroses. I’m sure. Yet Benford chooses to tell us all about it at Holocaust Revisionist Truesdale’s place on the World Wide Web. Hello? Oh wait this chilling ‘zombie chronicles’ nightmare is unending. As in the larger world, a microcosm of the macrocosm. Hey what’s the denial of the genocide of Jews at the hands of the Nazis, among Gentile and Jewish friends anyhow, compared to British Marxist pomposity, smugness and stupidity? Pathetic. I have to say that Benford and Resnick really have no excuse at this point in time. They just don’t want to know, do they? I mean what else is their excuse, if they can be said to have one?

Truesdale penned  this review article at the SF Site (of his fellow anti-Semite Kathryn Cramer’s one book that she co-edited, by the by). It is dated 2014. This may or may not be post-PetitionGate. The SF Site appears to be run at least in part, by the Jewish Steven H Silver (who is well aware of the charges leveled at Truesdale).

Also, Breitbart.com which is a popular conservative news source covering politics, Hollywood, media and the like, had an article posted up on the Conservative vs SJW morons of the SFF community, in February 2015. It pertains to the politics of the Hugos and how it has all been hijacked by the Social Justice Warriors and their censorship and ostracization of those they don’t like from that awards scene (like Larry Correia and others); and how the latter have responded. Namely the ‘Sad Puppies’ thing. A few other things are mentioned. I agree with most of the article. There are however a few road bumps. Aside from its whitewashing of Theodore Beale aka Vox Day’s misogyny and indisputable anti-black racism, there is this:

Their victims [the victims of the SJ Warriors – red wolf] are littered across the SFF community. In 2013, the Bulletin of the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) were targeted by a shirtstorm-like cyber-mob of digital puritans after one of their cover editions was deemed to be “too sexual.” The controversy did not die down until two of its most respected writers, Mike Resnick and Barry Malzburg, were dismissed from the publication. This occurred despite a vigorous counter-campaign by liberal members of the sci-fi community, including twelve Nebula award winners and three former presidents of the SFWA. 

Now if you click on the underlined ‘counter-campaign’, it takes you of course to the petition drafted up by Truesdale at Tangentonline, with all its signatories. This Breitbart article is from February 2015. Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism (wot’s that guv’nor?) is being self-censored as much from the Right as from the Left. Does Not Surprise Me in the Slightest.

If a real big scandal occurs in the SFF genre community, and nobody talks about it, was there a scandal to begin with? If liberal American Jews in the genre community, and in general, behave like cowards at best and self-loathing worms at worst, in the face of hardcore anti-Semitism (whether that anti-Semitism comes from conservatives, liberals or Muslims), and nobody calls them out on it – does that mean they are in the clear?

7th September 2016 UPDATE

I think it worth adding some additional info here, to those who may stumble across this article. Relating to SF’s 212th nervous breakdown, the expulsion of Dave Truesdale from MidAmeriCon II held in Kansas City, Mo in late August 2016.

Even though this happened in 2016, I’m certainly not going to be writing up any new separate articles on Truesdale! Enough is enough.

Truesdale was expelled after he went on a political rant as moderator on a panel on 19th August (other speakers included Gordon Van Gelder, far Lefty Aussie Jonathan Strahan who has a strong antipathy to Israel btw, Sheila Williams and Neil Clarke) entitled ‘The State of Short Fiction’. Some appear to have bandied the panel as ‘The Golden Age of SF’. Truesdale has made his talk (the audio) publicly available at Tangent.

Truesdale being Truesdale, complained about the stifling left-wing politicization of American Science Fiction, the alleged stifling of its creativeness and free expression by Social Justice Warrior spoilers, and the latters’ endless histrionics. And related. All this ranting on a SF Con panel having nothing to do with any of this.

How Truesdale just loves to see himself as a Galileo-like figure fighting the Inquisition that Truesdale perceives as the US SF Establishment. Truesdale has a real Martyr’s Complex.

Far Left cretin supreme Jim Hines’s blog posting on the Truesdale expulsion (and here is why I call him a cretin supreme), which sees Paul Levinson (pro-Truesdale) and Charles Stross (anti-Truesdale) exchange insults in the comments. Hines’s blog posting has a lot of other links to this affair, and is probably the definitive link in this regard.

For what it’s worth, and to repeat myself somewhat excessively, both Levinson and Stross are Jews in Name Only, both are extremely antipathetic to Israel. Stross is of course hardcore in his ‘new’ anti-Semitism. An irony thus lost on most everybody, never mind these two odious characters, is that Stross and Levinson are more alike than they could ever know.

Levinson the Jew in Name Only, in his mindless defense of Truesdale the Holocaust Denier, constantly references the ugly bullying of the infamous Joe McCarthy and even brings up Goebbels’s sinister propaganda tactics!!! All in defense mind you of Dave Truesdale the Holocaust Denier!! Paul Levinson the ‘Jew’ who still does not know nor care that I have exposed Truesdale as a Holocaust Denier. He’s more scared of my blog than the idiot Jew-hating Marxists of the genre community. And yes to remind my readers, he is technically ‘aware’ of this blog’s existence.

Naturally the likes of Vox Day, John C Wright (who qualifies as Truesdale’s hagiographer)  all go along with Truesdale’s Martyr Act in a forum where it was arguably inappropriate and uncalled for.

It made Reddit naturally enough, if you want to take a gander just do a search there. Jason Sanford weighs in.

Genre writer Jeb Kinnison weighs in, and writes at his blog:

Dave’s beliefs are well-known, and for some programming people to ask him to volunteer then have other ConCom people judge him severely for his immoderate moderation would seem to repel future moderators from volunteering.

Really, Dave’s beliefs are well-known? Which ones?? His Holocaust Denialism? Really? Oh Kinnison is not going there, if he even has the vaguest clue.

Here is the uh Jewish Moshe Feder, an editor at Tor on all this on Facebook. A liberal Jew who ends up defending Truesdale’s right to speak, and standing against his expulsion. The supposedly Jewish Darrel Schweitzer concurs (same facebook link), seemingly having done a U-Turn on this issue. Both are clearly utterly oblivious to Truesdale’s Holocaust Denialism. The only excuse they have is they have never heard of this blog. That however begs the question: why not? I am willing to bet every dollar I have in the bank both are utterly oblivious to Barack Obama, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton’s, and even Bernie Sanders’s Jew-hatred as well. Because hating Israel has nothing to do with Jew hatred, and what Israel hatred anyhow? I betcha. All this is related to their oblivious screw-up re Truesdale. It is all interlinked. Heads in the sand.

A blog posting at Fantasy Literature, a genre book and audio review site.

So did MidAmeriCon do the right thing here re Truesdale? I mean aside from the fact that Truesdale is a Holocaust Fucking Denier!! which begs the question, why is a Holocaust Fucking Denier/Revisionist even welcome as a moderator or speaker on a WorldCon panel, but I will come to that…

Both sides arguments arguably have merit. Admittedly it is just easier for me to support the expulsion, because Truesdale is um a Holocaust Denier folks. However we have to look at all this as a separate issue entirely and judge it on its own merits. Well maybe. The thing is I actually do agree with the liberals in SF circles – even a broken clock is right twice a day – that Truesdale pontificating about the politics of the SF scene in such a forum was unnecessarily divisive, ill-timed and unseemly. What the hell did he do it for? He was moderating on a panel about the state of short fiction for crying out loud. What on earth does this have to do with the SJW irritants in SF circles, besides absolutely nothing? It’s just Truesdale’s ego and his love for making controversy and hugging the spotlight and his politics of SF uber alles ranting, that gets the better of him. If he was ministering, lecturing and preaching on SJWs in SF circles at his blog or website, that’s just fine. I do that after all. At his platform he can do whatever he pleases. But that’s not what he did.

I find myself sympathizing to a degree with the left-wing SF commentator ‘Marion’ who wrote at her blog Deeds & Words the following:

If Truesdale were a tie-dyed-in-the-wool liberal, haranguing about the corporatization of the Democratic Party while tossing “Feel the Bern” bumper stickers into the audience, it would have been just as selfish and just as bad.

Yes that is a good point. If some far Left SF personality had done the same thing and used that panel that had nothing to do with the ugliness of contemporary politics, to wax on about how wonderful the Bern or Jeremy Corbyn are, and fume about Donald Trump as the new Hitler, I would likewise think it rude and unseemly. An out-and-out expulsion may not be warranted unless the person concerned was very rude; and fact is it would not happen in such a case anyhow because I would expect a double standard here from the Left leaning SF establishment. However that wouldn’t change the issue per se. Namely self-righteously pulpiteering on divisive politics, as if we don’t have enough of it – whether from a right-wing angle as in Truesdale’s case, or a left-wing PoV hypothetically speaking – is still improper, ill-becoming and unnecessarily rude in such a forum. Is an expulsion though too extreme? Thing is why was he really expelled? Is this it? Probably. A part of me just thinks, who cares, good on the Con organizers for expelling a Holocaust Denier even as I am the only one who says it!! and good riddance to Truesdale. Please God he is not invited to be a moderator at any other Con. Ever again.

However even if such a position has merit, the Con organizers did screw up here by even inviting Truesdale to be a moderator on a panel at a WorldCon – any panel – to begin with. For two reasons.

Firstly, I mean it was so predictable that Truesdale would do EXACTLY what he did. Which is fine I guess if you don’t mind and feel that political prattle was just fine and appropriate for the panel discussion. As one Twitter user put it, Truesdale is gonna Truesdale. So as at least one commentator at Jim Hines’s relevant blog entry points out, given that Truesdale’s behaviour was entirely predictable and should easily have been foreseen, what excuses do Con organizers have for inviting Truesdale to be a moderator in the first place? I mean if they feel that they don’t want to hear from conservative and yes reactionary political voices in such a forum or consider it inappropriate…

I mean other than willful blindness that is.

And now really this is where I have no choice but to bring this up, once again… Sigh.

Yes I repeat myself and repeat myself and repeat myself. I am compelled to do so as long as I blog, because it’s always the same old same old…

The real reason that Truesdale should never have been on any World Con panel is…

THE FACT THAT TRUESDALE IS A HOLOCAUST DENIER/REVISIONIST. And is there really any excuse in 2016 for WorldCon organizers not to know this?

Naturally none of the commentators at Hines’s blog entry – including the idiot Hines who is technically ‘aware’ of this blog – bring up Truesdale’s uh dissident views on the annihilation of European Jewry. (Any more than the uh Jews Feder and Schweitzer make mention of it because they don’t appear to know at all and they clearly don’t want to know about anything touching on anti-Semitism, in and out of the genre community. As with all of liberal so-called Jewry. Scared to death of going anywhere near acknowledging the monster that is Jew-hatred) Pathetic. Sure I don’t expect all genre pros and fandom to know about my blog, but you know plenty do. Then again what else to expect?

As of late 2016, a Google search for ‘Dave Truesdale’ and ‘Tangent’ still brings up the Season of the Red Wolf exposés of Dave Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism on page 2 of Google search results, if not on page 1 any longer. A search of the archives of this blog shows that many of the genre’s pro writers, editors, fans (including former SWFA president John Scalzi) have had plenty to Tweet and on occasion blog and facebook prattle on re the Season of the Red Wolf. Even if largely dismissive in a way that is frankly as sinister as it is oblivious. I mean I am exposing anti-Semitism in the mad mad mad and witless genre community of dullards duh. However the point I want to make is what excuse do at least some of the movers and shakers in SF who are ‘cognizant’ of this blog have for not alerting at least some of the Con organizers to the fact that Truesdale is a Holocaust Revisionist? I mean this is a WorldCon after all.

Well as I relate time and time and time again, everybody – so-called Jewish and Gentile alike – is scared stiff of recognizing the existence of Jew-hatred. It is a taboo. Make that a HUGE TABOO. Don’t want to go there. At all costs.

So two and a half years after the Truesdale petition was signed onto by these oblivious genre Jews, we have people agreeing with Truesdale’s expulsion from MidAmeriCon II on the one hand, and those harshly disagreeing and defending poor innocent Galileo wannabe Tangent editor Dave Truesdale on the other hand. Naturally none of them bring up the fact that Truesdale is a Holocaust Denier (and yes Holocaust Denialism is Holocaust Revisionism and vice versa). Because we can’t go there now!

Obviously those defending Truesdale conveniently ignore/are oblivious to that ugly monster of extreme and oblivious Judenhass in Truesdale’s cupboard! But so are those who support the decision of the head honchos at the Con to expel Truesdale. That is the latter also ignore Truesdale’s Holocaust Denialism, sweeping it under the rug or play at Hear no anti-Semitism See no anti-Semitism Speak of no anti-Semitism. That is the liberal modus operandi and the Jewish modus operandi likewise. Even as it appears to be in the interest of the latter group to make mention of it! Even as it appears to be akin to military generals in a war not using their most heavy weaponry such as artillery and fighter bombers they have in their arsenal to target enemy combatants in a desperate battle, and instead merely make use of small arms fire from infantry troops.

I will just say that the exact same psychological and sociological dynamics are at play here once again re the willful silence on Truesdale’s Holocaust Revisionism from liberal SF folk who consider Truesdale to be a reactionary, misogynist and racist. But not an anti-Semite!! It’s the same Black Comedy. Over and over and over again, for as long as Truesdale makes a scene in the SF public sphere.

Naturally airheads like the Jew in Name Only Charles Stross, and Jim Hines for that matter, would never use Truesdale’s Holocaust Denialism against the ‘Jew’ Paul Levinson!! and for that matter any other Jews defending Truesdale such as Feder and Schweitzer. That is because the source in this regard – the Red Wolf – makes Stross and Hines come off just as badly as Levinson and other genre so-called Jewry. In fact Stross comes off far worse than anybody here. Just check what I write re Stross (and Graham Raven) further up. In summation, Levinson, Hines and Stross are all technically so-called aware of this very blog (well as aware as zombies can ever be), and none of them can mention the monster in Truesdale’s cupboard. Levinson I am willing to bet couldn’t ever bring himself to click on any link to the Red Wolf blog. Ever. Not even to my article on Levinson himself I am willing to bet. I don’t have Ron Paul banners anywhere for one, so he just couldn’t bring himself to go anywhere near…

Hence what I mean by the black comedy that is unending. I’m the pro-Israel anti-Islamist Zionist Jew (well yes I am indeed), hence an evil right-wing ZioCon in the eyes of the Loony Left (yes they are), and so everything I write must thus be tinged with madness… So Stross and Hines for that matter, both of whom has launched the most asinine insults my way – and the way of any and all other ‘Islamophobes’ such as Elizabeth Moon – have tied their own hands re Truesdale’s most egregious and obscene bigotry, namely the latter’s Holocaust Denialism.

So naturally not one of the liberals, communists, socialists, anarchists and assorted Social Justice Warriors in the SF genre community – having painted themselves into a corner re the Red Wolf blogger – dares make mention that the likes of Vox Day, the ‘Jewish’ Paul Levinson, John C Wright and other right-wing whiners and even uh liberal Jews! are not doing themselves any favours and do not have a leg to stand on. Namely those running to the defense of a Holocaust Denier/Revisionist! ranting about perceived political slights and stifling of opposition political viewpoints in official SF circles, are being extremely hypocritical, absurd, obscene and counter-productive. And utterly oblivious. If not sinister. To put it mildly. That is the SF right-wing community who have complained about the poor Holocaust Revisionist Dave Truesdale’s alleged mistreatment at MidAmeriCon II – American SF’s very own Giordano Bruno being burned at the stake, well in the mind of Truesdale at least – only serves to justify the suspicions liberals and Jewish liberals among them, have about right-wing folk in general. It proves that it’s not just idiot liberals who are guilty of the most idiotic identity politics. So is the Right. In and out of the genre community. Hey Dave Truesdale is the anti-PC Right’s Holocaust Revisionist not the Left’s Holocaust Revisionist. So he’s just fine, sparkling and good and all is right with the Right. To the right-wing spectrum of the SF community. What to expect from the Mel Gibson lovers/defenders really? The Right’s Jew-haters are just fine to the Right. It’s only the Left’s Jew-haters that are ugly and bigoted. If the latter can even be said to exist at all.

When people who complain about Political Correctness turn out to be Holocaust Deniers, well that is the neo-Nazi definition of Political Correctness at work. The PC definition used by the alt.right brigade of white supremacists across the West, the successors to the Klu Klux Klan and the John Birch Society, the BNP types in the UK. The kind of far right-wing folk who think Political Correctness is the refusal to face up to the prejudicial belief that black people are innately inferior to white people and Jim Crow and apartheid in South Africa were good things which we ought to wax nostalgic over; and likewise think PC is the refusal to acknowledge Jews as nefarious all-powerful trouble makers, prone to evil, greed and malice. The kind of right-wing homophobic reactionaries who think it’s PC softness and immorality to consider gay rights a basic human right, rather than an affront to civilization or what passes for the latter anyhow.

This has nothing to do with the kind of actual PC rubbish I myself have decried at this blog, as do other bloggers, journalists and commentators around the world, from Mark Steyn to Douglas Murray, historian Bat Ye’or, gay writer Bruce Bawer, Allen West, Geert Wilders, Pat Condell, Steve Emerson, the late murdered Pim Fortuyn, Ezra Levant to the late Oriana Fallaci. And plenty others. Namely the kind of moral and cultural relativism the Left routinely engages in; the Left’s Islamophilia most pertinently, related denialism and apologetics for the Jihad International, respectable and fashionable anti-Semitism as anti-Israelism/anti-Zionism/post-Zionism, asinine America hating and related hatred of the West and associated Western self-loathing and the resultant ever intensifying Western Civilizational Suicide.

If this is how it is not only in SF circles but the wider world: namely a choice between left-wing Islamophiles and Israel haters (that is disingenuous sophisticated Jew-haters who pretend they are nothing of the sort) and alt.right John Bircher types who are more nakedly and crudely anti-Semitic and anti-black racists and homophobes, then Gold help us. And that is how it looks from here. Increasingly so. I know there is a significant silent wedge of people in the SF genre community – and out of it for that matter – who just roll their eyes at both political camps here who have more in common than not, but the silence is itself a problem.

A Holocaust Denier/Revisionist is no icon of Truth Telling to the Power of the left-wing American SF Establishment. That’s for definite! And you will only read that here. From the Red Wolf. No other genre Jew – writer, fan, editor, publisher – dares make public mention of it! Some do a helluva lot worse. 

There is something else that should be put on the public record re Truesdale’s expulsion that otherwise would not be known about. When Truesdale was expelled from MidAmeriCon on the 20th August, there was a sudden spike in my blog stats (that very day), and I mean to this self-same Dave Truesdale Petition article from 2014 (naturally before this September 2016 update). This spike remained over the next few days, with the highest number of visitors to this particular article by a long shot, being on the 24th August. This is all relative when you are blogging in the Internet equivalent of the Outback but even so… This article was discussed on facebook (among a small group of people), behind the scenes. No mention was made on Twitter nor any blog. I do not know the group or the identities of the folk involved. Were at least some of these people among the organizers/honchos from MidAmeriCon? I don’t know. I can only speculate here. But clearly the timing here is not a meaningless coincidence.

Interesting no?

The Jew at the end of his tether

This article is unlike anything else that I have ever published at this blog. That is it does not concern the Science Fiction genre community. It is an article that would easily belong in a general Jewish and Israeli newspaper, website or blog. However its theme is not only contemporary anti-Semitism, but how things are rapidly unfolding in a way that would frighten and disturb even the most pessimistic Israel supporter, Jewish or Gentile, and gladden the hearts of Jew-haters everywhere, be they Muslim jihadists, far right-wing white supremacists, Jew-hating Western liberals, socialists, communists, goy and ‘Jewish’ alike.

The news that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu decided to release over one hundred Palestinian terrorists/jihadists in order to get ‘peace talks’ with the Palestinian Authority under M Abbas restarted at the end of July, sent tremors of shock and anger through the hearts and minds of all Jews with any real sense, both in Israel and abroad. That he clearly did so under relentless pressure from the Obama administration is obvious enough.

Bluntly speaking Netanyahu decided to release dozens of Palestinian terrorists in order to appease and capitulate to the demands of the Muslim extremist Palestinian Authority/PA and Fatah, headed as it is by a Holocaust Denying jihadist Mahmoud Abbas who has dedicated his life to the destruction of Israel (he co-founded the PLO in 1964, which calls for the destruction of Israel on its charter) and whose administration has always glorified suicide bombers and other terrorist acts against Jews, naming streets after them, praising them in their media and mosques, and the like. Then again Fatah/the PA has carried out numerous suicide bombing attacks and other terrorist atrocities through its armed wing, the alAqsa MartyrsBrigades. All this aided and abetted by the US State Department and the EU, since they finance the PA to a large degree. I’m not even talking about Hamas here.

What even many of Netanyahu’s critics miss here is that if Abbas and the PA insist we free over a hundred terrorist prisoners from Israeli jails, who Abbas sees as heroic political prisoners, and justice and ‘peace concerns’ demand their release; then Abbas and the PA don’t want peace, they emphatically reject peace and support jihadist terror against the Jews. In that case why enter into so-called peace talks with unambiguous supporters of the jihad against the Jews? This does not appear to occur to Netanyahu and the other fools on the Israeli Left. Or if it does, they have decided to ignore this obvious fact. Sure Kerry and Obama are happy. But neither of them have Israel’s interests at heart, and only naive fools or anti-Semites think otherwise.

Gonen Ginat is one of the relatively few to point this out. He writes at Israel HaYom (‘Israel Today’, in English):

The problem is this: In demanding the release of racist murderers, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is declaring that he is not a partner. Racially motivated murders are the polar opposite of peace. You can’t negotiate peace while simultaneously revering terrorists as heroes. Anyone demanding the release of racist killers is thereby declaring that he is not interested in peace.

As soon as the request for the release of these despicable killers was submitted, we should have announced that anyone who makes such a demand is basically proving that they do not want peace. The fact that Abbas is a Holocaust denier seeking to free racist murderers should render him unfit as a partner for anything.

The pathetic rationalist defense of Netanyahu’s capitulation to those who wish us ill, Palestinian jihadists and their liberal allies in the West alike; namely ‘it’s just realpolitik, and Bibi can’t afford to offend the White House, America is too powerful blabla’ don’t know what they are talking about. Bibi can’t afford to offend the anti-Semitic Obama administration, otherwise the anti-Semitic Obama administration would wish us ill. As if it doesn’t already. As if it doesn’t act accordingly. The White House has betrayed us on Iran, we are all alone there. We are betrayed by them time and time again, all over the show. Obama and Kerry, the US Democratic Party have a knife in our backs, and Bibi like something out of a Marquis de Sade ‘vision’, begs for the knife to go in even deeper, so the rest of us can feel the pain. And American liberal ‘Jews’ voted for this Jew-hating US admininstration, and that includes of course our US genre ‘Jewish’ liberals. Twice over.

Even if by some miracle, not a single one of these released terrorists goes back to jihadist terror or is thwarted in some way or somehow (and don’t count on that at all); all we have done is capitulate to jihadists and their dupes in the White House. In principle, it is no different to the appeasement of fascism by Britain and France in the 1930s. Abbas and his fellow Muslim fanatics are only encouraged in their Jew-hate bloodlust by what they rightly see as Netanyahu’s weakness, his fear. They smell it. And so in all likelihood, a new intifada of some sort against the Jews will begin in earnest. Sooner or later. The very real enemy of the sovereign Jewish state is not only the jihadists, the Muslim extremists in the Middle-East and beyond who seek to wipe Israel off the map; that includes the PA/Fatah, who the Western Left and the Israeli Left mislabel moderates and peace partners. The enemy is also the Obama White House, the US State Department, the US media and other powerful organs in the US that seek to aid and abet the jihadists in sheeps’ clothing, in the latters’ genocidal goal. All in the name of peace naturally enough. The US Left and Muslim Brotherhood supporting White House and Democractic Party are no better than the Jew-hating European Union. Most American Jews do not understand this at all, they are brain-dead. As if that isn’t bad enough, Israel’s so-called right-wing hawk prime minister goes along with this phased plan for Israel’s destruction; he who begs for mercy from the Jew-hating Abbas and the Jew-hating White House alike.

There is something far more chilling than even the concern for an upcoming Palestinian intifada… Netanyahu’s surrender to the Palestinian ‘moderate’ jihadists under Abbas, means we can have no faith in Bibi’s leadership in dealing with the existential threat from the far more powerful Iranian regime. Or anywhere else for that matter.

Well-known Middle-East analyst Barry Rubin gives possibly the best analysis of what is probably going on behind the scenes, and gives the best explanation I have seen on the pressure Netanyahu has likely been put under and will continue to be put under by both the Jew-hating EU and the Jew-hating Obama administration, to get Israel’s PM to capitulate to the demands of the genocidal Jew-hating PA/Fatah. The latter’s duplicity and lying is notorious, and their end goal remains the destruction of Israel. The PA are actually honest about this end goal, to their own people at least. The Western media and governments, including the US, just lie and cover up this genocidal Jew-hatred of the PA and Fatah notably enough. To be transparent about it would give away what sympathy and support for the Palestinians is all about – namely Jew-hatred. Never mind  that Hamas can overthrow the PA easily enough, once Israel has abandoned the West Bank, as happened in Gaza.

Bibi has been put between a rock and a hard place. However he has still made the wrong choice. Even taking into account everything Rubin says. Either we stand up to the Jew-hating Obama administration and its EU allies and call out their Jew-hatred for what it is, or we go along with the phased plan for Israel’s destruction, a plan which goes under the banner slogan of ‘peace and justice for the Palestinians’. Bibi has opted for the latter and in doing so has betrayed his origins, his past as a brave soldier, his brother who died at Entebbe, his brilliant historian father. He has betrayed Israel, the Jews and the truth itself.

In fact it is predictably The Jerusalem Post’s Caroline Glick who puts it best of all, pulling no punches about what Netanyahu’s cowardice means (and she uses that exact word, cowardice), the PA and Abbas’s genocidal Jew-hatred and the support the latter have from the True Believers Kerry and Obama.

Israel cannot continue to survive with a PM who capitulates under pressure from Jew-haters, whether they be Muslim Arab Jew-haters or American and European Jew-haters. And it won’t. We have survived the foolishness of Olmert and Rabin before Netanyahu. However now the threats are not from the Palestinian extremists alone (that includes Fatah and Hamas, among others), we have Iran (the big one), a chaotic Egypt and Syria, a Hamas ruled Gaza, a powerful enemy in Turkey that was once an ally not that long ago, a Jordan that can fall to the Muslim Brotherhood… If that wasn’t all bad enough, the Europeans are as anti-Semitic as they have ever been, and the world’s (declining) superpower arms our enemies to the teeth and calls for the Jews – and only the Jews – to surrender ever more territory and security affairs to the Muslim extremist Palestinian Authority. Or else. The betrayal from liberal American Jews is especially disgusting. A betrayal they are utterly oblivious to. Yet how has Bibi – he who unlike the brain-dead liberal American Jews theoretically knows better – done better? He – unlike the brain-dead American Jewish Left – knows that appeasement and concessions to jihadists and terrorists of every stripe only makes things worse for Israel and only intensifies the jihad against the Jews. And yet he has gone ahead with appeasement to Muslim fascists, it’s straight out of the Neville Chamberlain playbook. Inexcusable and indefensible.

Even as the surrender of Gaza by Israel in 2005 has resulted in a Hamas take-over and a rocket siege on south-western Israel, even as the surrender of southern Lebanon has seen a Hezbollah take-over. Even as Israel gave up the Sinai in ’79, and now it is in chaos, and bands of jihadists are battling Egyptian army units there as I type this… And given all this, the West – with its cultural history of murderous Jew-hatred – still expects Israel to surrender its whole eastern buffer zone, that actually almost cuts Israel clean in half. These are not good intentions by the US and the EU; given Israel’s very recent past experience, of giving up territory in return for Muslim fanatics to fill the gap. And Jewry for the most part has its collective head buried in the sand. Too afraid to face facts. Yet it has always been the refusal to face facts that results in even more chaos and catastrophe. See the lead-up to World War Two for example.

The very obsessiveness by the Obama White House and the West as a whole with the Israel-Palestinian ‘peace talks’ is a form of Jew-hatred. Even most pro-Israel folk it would appear don’t understand this. Why is it Jew-hatred?

Two main reasons.

One: Why does the West not focus on getting peace talks started in Nigeria, given the undeclared civil war there initiated by Muslim against Christians, where has the White House done anything for peace talks in Sudan, in Darfur? Where are the peace talks re East Africa, given the endless turmoil and conflict there, what about the Russians and the Chechens? When did the White House obsess about getting peace talks started between Tamils and Sinhalese in the Sri Lankan Civil War that raged for decades? What about Kashmir? What about Thailand and the Philippines where they face their own Muslim insurgencies? The White House, the EU are AWOL on that front. What about the Syrian civil war? Why doesn’t the White House insist that both sides come to the negotiating table, instead of agreeing to arm the Sunni Muslim fanatical rebels? Now all these conflicts are far worse in their savagery and loss of life than the Palestinian-Israel conflicts over the decades. The only explanation is that since none of the above mentioned conflicts (and I can mention plenty others) concern the Jews, the West, the EU and Obama and Kerry and their ilk could care less. Either this does not occur to the Israeli government, ie they are as dumb as the dumbest liberal Jews in Name Only, or they are spineless. Or both.

Two: The so-called peace talks between Israel and the PA are nothing but the destruction of Israel through diplomacy talks. C’est tout. Israel must agree to surrender increasing amounts of territory in the West Bank along with security operations to Muslim jihadists aka the Palestinian Authority and Fatah. In return for a worthless piece of paper signed and stamped by the Muslim extremist Palestinian Authority. Never mind – to repeat myself – the risk of Hamas taking over after an Israeli withdrawal, so the Palestinians can have their own state. That’s exactly what happened after Israel left Gaza. There was no talk of a Palestinian state when the West Bank was part of Jordan. It’s only now that it is part of Israel (as a result of the 1967 War initiated by the Arab Muslim states), that the ruse is afoot to get Israel to abandon control of the territory to Muslim extremists, so the latter can have another go at driving the Jews into the sea. Israel without the West Bank as a huge buffer zone cannot defend itself from an all out assault from its enemies in the region. Without the West Bank under its control, it is doubtful Israel could have pulled through by the skin of its teeth against the Soviet backed Arab armies in ’73. Naturally the Muslim Middle-East, hostile to Israel’s very existence, seeks Israel’s destruction. Naturally the Jew-hating West (for the most part), responsible in multiple ways for the extermination of six million Jews during World War Two, does too. Even if it’s not a conscious, deliberate plan on the part of the West, but an unconscious one. The fact that it appears to be the latter is no cause for comfort. However it’s not the job of the Jew nation’s government to go along with the end-goal that is the Shoah Part Two.

Yet Bibi Netanyahu is doing just that.

And as a consequence, given that Israel is under more existential danger than it was in ’73, ’67 and ’48 before that, I do not see how Israel can survive. It would be a hard enough job against very hard odds, even without a Neville Chamberlain as PM. Yet we have an Appeaser to the Muslim Jihad as the PM of Israel… Only Jew-haters can delight in this.

One of the depressing things that I have noticed about even pro-Israel religious Jewish and Christian conservative folk the last couple of years, one picks this up on the Internet, is how they think Israel can and must survive… Namely God will come to the aid of the Jews, even if at the last moment. No matter how well-meaning this is, how sincere, it is so wincing. The real world doesn’t work like that. Personally I think God exists. But it doesn’t work like that. God did not send his angels to save the Jews from Dachau and Treblinka, the angels did not disappear the train tracks to Auschwitz. And what of other victims of genocide? Where was God to save the Armenians from the Turks? What of the destruction of the native people on both American continents, Australian aborigines, and African people destroyed and enslaved by the European powers? What of the millions upon millions of victims of the Jihad over the centuries, whether they be Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, pagan, Jewish and Muslims themselves? God does not interfere in the world, not in that way. Men are free to do as they will, and only other men can either stop them if they can, or aid them in one way or another.

Ron Rosenbaum’s words from 2004 unfortunately have more relevance and a chilling resonance today than when he first penned them:

“The second Holocaust. It’s a phrase we may have to begin thinking about. A possibility we may have to contemplate. A reality we may have to witness.”

History is repeating. I wish I were wrong, way off base.

If only.

In Stanislaw Lem’s memoir Highcastle, of his childhood and adolescence in Poland before World War Two and with the wisdom of hindsight, that is the knowledge of the subsequent destruction of his people (Lem was Jewish and spent the war in hiding from the Nazis), Lem wrote:

In the thirties no one saw this coming. Though there was sometimes trouble. From the balcony of our apartment, crouching, I watched mounted police charge a crowd of demonstrators – it was during the funeral of Kozak. As rocks clattered on the metal shutters which the merchants used to try to save their windows, I saw one policeman in a shining helmet pulled off his horse. But this passed like a sudden storm, and when the janitors swept the broken glass off the sidewalk, peace returned, and nuns – my father’s grateful patients – brought from their garden great armfuls of grafted lilacs, which we put under running water in the bathtub, and on the “Merry Lvov” station we listened to the comedians Toncio and Szezepiec and the funny monologues, with much throat-clearing  from Mr. Stroncio, and I told my parents that I wouldn’t go to gymnasium because you had to wear knickerbockers, which I hated because they tickled under the knee. We were like ants bustling in an anthill over which the heel of a boot is raised. Some saw its shadow, or thought they did, but everyone, the uneasy included, ran about their usual business until the very last minute, ran with enthusiasm, devotion – to secure, to appease, to tame the future. Adults and children, we were all made equal by the blessing of ignorance, without which one cannot live.
