Message to Richard Spencer, Racist

Not-so dear Richard Spencer,

I am sure you are as surprised as most of us that you got your say on Israeli television (the one place in the world the Jews really do control the media). Not only that, but the anchor was way too polite to you, considering your detestable views on Jews and other groups.

But I want to specifically address your calling yourself a White Zionist during that interview in the sense of claiming you care about “your people” (i.e. Whites) and want a secure homeland for yourselves.

Sure, there are those who think you have a point – even some fellow Jews. But I hate to break it to you – they don’t understand what Zionism – or even Judaism – is truly about.

As someone who does, allow me to educate you.

Zionism is nothing more than the national movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel. You see, since we were exiled thousands of years ago, we never gave up hope of returning. This is expressed in our Jewish prayers and religious observance.

Zionism is not about racial superiority or making life hell for others – despite the claims of your fellow antisemites and ignoramuses (including some of my fellow Jews). It is about our history, our religion, our beliefs. We are taught not to “oppress a stranger” – we are to live in peace with our fellow non-Jewish citizens. Except those who try to kill us – the Torah also gives us the mandate to defend ourselves. After all, the 10 Commandments say “Do Not Murder”, not “Do Not Kill” – an acknowledgement of killing in self-defense.

Sure, your ilk love quoting the fact we believe we are the Chosen People. But this is nothing to do with feelings of superiority over other peoples. It is about spreading the light of morality throughout the world. It is actually a heavy burden, for which we have paid a huge price over the centuries. Given the idea of one G-d and judicial systems is prevalent across the world, I’d say we have achieved this to a large degree. Of course, given the current state of the world – which includes people like you spreading your filth – we still have so much work to do.

Our non-Jewish citizens in Israel have equal rights. Sure, given the issue that many of them also want us destroyed, it does complicate things. But we continue to seek peace, and do the best we can. Anyone but the Jew hater and intellectually dishonest can see this.

You, on the other hand, have contempt for those you do not define as White. You want the US exclusively for White people. This is racism, plain and simple. Zionism is nothing like this – it is the opposite – but I am sure you are pleased your statement connecting the two is being used against us.

I have been very outspoken about the antisemitic Left, but that is not to say I do not consider you and your views utterly repugnant, and the actions of your fellow travelers dangerous and a real threat. It is just that I believe you will be consigned to the dustbin of history quicker than the antisemites on the Left, who currently enjoy more support by virtue of the fact they hide their Jew hatred behind the excuse of caring for human rights. You are, frankly, too dumb to do this.

You might have the smooth talk, pretty boy hair and veneer of respectability, but you are truly as ugly as they come. May this be the last we hear of you.
