I have to explain this again. Neonazism is not a far right movement. Like all fascist movements, it’s a form of leftism with right wing aesthetics. It’s basically just Stalinism for Germanic people. I am right wing, whether I like it or not. I’ve spent years of my life fighting that realization, to no avail. Most of you aren’t. When you think you’re to the right of me, you’re generally just a leftist. This hatred of Jews/Zionists is just leftist envy.
As a right winger, your mind is just intuitively drawn to quality. When human beings witness a conflict, we inevitably choose sides, whether we want to or not. Our gut does this for us. You’re either drawn to Israel or to the Gazans. You don’t choose this. It simply happens to you. The Hamas militants shot children hiding in closets. For me that just answers the question.
You people call me a Zionist, a Jew, a spook, a glowie etcetera, it’s all fine with me. But I know I don’t have some three letter agency paying me and I know I still have my foreskin. No, the simple reality is that I want to bash my head against the wall every time I think about what happened. And I’m not able to look away.
As a left winger, your mind is drawn to quantity. Hence why we see the leftists make arguments based on quantity, like the idea that Israel is committing genocide. What they mean with that is that Israel is killing a lot of Palestinians, which is factually correct. But to refer to this as genocide is factually incorrect, because the goal is not to eradicate an ethnic group, but to eradicate a movement. If Israel could do that with zero civilian casualties, they would. Hamas showed you what they do when they have the opportunity: Kill anyone in Israel who is not a Muslim.
This is also why democracy is a leftist way to run a society. Every communist country claims to be democratic. Right wingers want a society based on justice and the rule of law. The fact that a big number of people want something ultimately means nothing to them. As an example, my attitude towards climate change and veganism is fundamentally far-right: I just don’t care what the majority of people want. I want to shove my opinion down their throats, whether they like it or not.
As a right winger, you discriminate. All right wing thought comes down to discrimination. The left is right about this, but picks the wrong definition for discrimination. The form of discrimination we practice is “the ability or power to see or make fine distinctions”. We look at a mass of similar things and we distinguish which of those objects have distinct qualities the other ones don’t have. We aim to protect the rare against the common.
You don’t really choose this. When you’re right wing you’re going to stay right wing, regardless of what sort of indoctrination camp they might send you to. It’s not even how your brain works. It’s what you are.
Here’s a simple example of what I mean:
If I look at this face, I see a person. A goofy old working class guy, who likes to make children in his bus laugh. Every weekend he goes to hang out at his local pub, with the same handful of other low status white males he has known for decades, to play a game of cards or complain to each other about how the whole country is going to shit. That’s what that face speaks to me and so it breaks my heart when I see this.
But you could show me a dozen Palestinian mothers with headscarves crying hysterically and running around with the corpses of their children in their hands, screaming that Achmed was martyred by the Zionists, but the reality is that I’m just going to feel nothing.
You can tell me I’m a bad person for feeling nothing. Maybe you are right. Maybe that makes me a bad person. A racist, a white supremacist, a bigot, the next Hitler, a fascist. You can call me a thousand words, that may very well make me feel ashamed of myself. But it’s not going to make me feel something.
Because I trained myself to feel nothing? Because I pushed some button in my head to feel nothing? No. Because that’s just how my brain works. Trust me, the streets in my country are full of people marching with Palestinian flags. If I could push some button in my brain that would make me empathize with them, I would, it would make my life easier. But it’s just not there.
What do you feel when you see Luke Skywalker and the gang mow down a bunch of stormtroopers? Well that’s roughly what I feel when I see these identical looking women, with their identical headscarves, screaming in their identical ugly language that the evil Zionists bombed the kid who was destined to be a brave soldier for Allah.
“Right wingers” (read: ethnocentric white leftists) love to argue that people pay too much attention to this German girl murdered at the psytrance festival.
But here’s the thing: SHANI LOUK IS AN INDIVIDUAL!
Maybe she had fifteen different STDs from a holiday in Jamaica. Maybe she believed wholeheartedly in flooding my whole country with the sort of dudes who killed her. But this is a SOMEONE, with an appearance and a worldview and a personality and an attitude and hobbies and interests and music that she liked and a favorite movie director and goals she aspired to and countries that she wanted to visit and a color that she wanted to paint the roof of her bedroom in.
And it’s perfectly possible that I could’ve met Shani Louk at some party or concert I went to. And I would say “yeah I know Shani”. But I honestly can’t imagine ever meeting someone from Gaza and ever telling people “Yeah I know Hassan” instead of “yeah I met a guy from Gaza once”.
And I’m not even arguing here that Arabs are some sort of homogeneous racially inferior borg. I actually met a cool Israeli Arab once. If anything, it’s Hamas that makes the value of a Palestinian life very cheap.
If you’re taught from an early age that you were brought into this world to kill as many Jews as possible, how are you ever going to be a human being? How are you going to be anything more than just a flesh-robot? And what life are you even losing, when you’re blown to smithereens? What opportunities?
You can look up the videos for yourself, of these parents sending their six year old boys to IDF soldiers with guns, trying to get them shot. That breaks my heart, because that’s where you’re still looking at an embryonic individual. Someone who is never going to unlearn the lesson his father taught him there. Someone who is never going to get a chance to individuate, to become someone.
I have failed throughout my life in a thousand different ways, I have very little to show for myself. But if you know me, you know a person. You know someone. Someone you can like or dislike. And that was robbed from the Palestinians, not just by some bronze age pedophile warlord in the Arab peninsula, but by a terrorist movement that took control over their society.
And that’s why I say that it’s not for the Israelis that Hamas needs to be eradicated. It’s for the Palestinians.
