I an getting old enough that I come across the younger crowd and often I have no friggin idea what they’re talking about and can’t figure it out from the context. It’s disconcerting, especially when I see stuff like this. What in hell is a “Judeo-Christian? Is that like a white woman pretending she’s black, or a man, or something in between?
I hang out near the edgier pundits and the outright crime thinkers. In years past I stood firmly with Israel, and sympathized with victims of antisemitism. I have since withdrawn my support for them and now adopt a stance of indifference. I’m not going to get into it, I have seen things you can’t unsee. In my circle it’s called ‘The JQ’ or the Jewish Question. I have seen arguments against the idea that these guys are our friends, and solid evidence that is beyond question or doubt. I will not take up arms against them, but nor will I ally myself with them or actively support them anymore.
I’ve been berated for that too. “Filthie you idiot! You’ve been listening to poisoned minds and half truths!!!” Hmmmmmm. ‘Half-truths’? Does that mean there is such thing as a half-lie? If so, why is a half lie about them better than a half truth? To even talk about this stuff or ask questions is heresy and apostasy for some folks.
In the days ahead we are going to find ourselves in tough straights where we are going to have to ask some really tough questions. How we got there, who was responsible and what to do about them. We are going to have to be damned careful about the answers that come back. Now would be a really, really good time for folks to start shooting straight with each other, and for friends to safeguard each other’s interests.
