What a catastrophe.
You have certainly rused me again, Donalduru-san.
President Donald Trump planned to sign an executive order Wednesday that would effectively interpret Judaism as both a race or nationality and a religion under federal law so that the Education Department can take direct action against what he views as anti-Semitism on college campuses, administration officials said.
How far will this reckless heebphilia go, I ask?
This is absolute madness.
The interpretation allows the Education Department, under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to withhold funding from college or educational programs it believes are discriminating in an anti-Semitic way. The law states that the Education Department can take such action against a program that discriminates based “on the ground of race, color or national origin” — but not on religion.
So Jews are a race after all and not just a religion?
There’s a silver lining in this story after all.
Well, would you look at that. Sounds like a Neon-Nazi talking point has finally broken through into mainstream discourse.
Judaism is a nationality.
We are a people.
You can't be Jewish just by adopting the identity and practicing the religion.
Belief does not make you Jewish.
Jewish is an ethnicity.
A unique collection of peoplehood shared across centuries and countries.

But this is only because someone decided that it benefits the Jews in some way, which is what the working definition of “Truth” is in our society. To reiterate: Truth has become whatever benefits the Jews at any given time.
The order comes largely in response to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against the Israeli government for its treatment of Palestinians. The movement has become prominent on some campuses and resulted in actions that have left some Jewish students feeling targeted. In making the change, the Trump administration would be recognizing Jews as having a collective national origin.
Remember when all those brave Groypers hammered Dan Crenshaw on his support for anti-BDS legislation that would stifle the First Amendment on college campuses?
Well, I guess Crenshaw got the memo that this was going to happen and tried to get a jump on it. You’d think that rumors about the resistance he got from campus conservatives would have somehow trickled up to POTUS and gotten him to reconsider, but either Trump didn’t notice the Groyper Wars OR he noticed them and decided to double-down on support for Israel anyway OR he has been ensnared in Jewish black magick and is now an unthinking golem puppet.
Take your pick.
Trump “will be signing an executive order on anti-Semitism to enshrine the definition from the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance of anti-Semitism into an executive order, and clarify that Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act applies to anti-Semitic acts,” a senior administration official told reporters Tuesday.
“The Domestic Policy Council began to focus on this issue in the late winter-spring of this year, when we were alarmed, frankly, at a rise in anti-Semitic rhetoric, including, unfortunately, from leading political figures,” the official continued. “We looked at the data and we saw that there’s been a rise in anti-Semitic incidents since 2013, and we began a policy process to figure out, specifically, what we could do on the subject.”
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance defines anti-Semitism as “a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews,” though “criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as anti-Semitic.”
The definition also includes “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination,” which lists “claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor” among such denials.
That definition literally forbids criticism of Israel from a left-wing perspective. No accusing Israel of being racist or an Apartheid State because that hurts the Jews’ feelings.
Trump’s order mirrors bipartisan legislation that stalled out in Congress, though critics have said the change could be used to stifle free speech and opposition to Israel’s government.
As The New York Times reported, the executive order was welcomed by the Anti-Defamation League and criticized by the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights.
Ah yes, the ADL: staunch allies of Donald Trump and the MAGA movement that swept him into office.
Where the ADL goes, so too does Heartland America.
Folks, we are a hop and a skip away from having all criticism of Israel and Jews banned on a state and national level. There are already anti-BDS laws being pushed in states like Florida and Texas, which will only spread.
Great to see this. Now we need to target Anti-Semitism in Congress!

And whatever happens on college campuses is usually treated as a test-run for policies that will then be unleashed on the American public, so it’s only a matter of time on that front as well.
I do really wish the Trump family would cool it with the Semitism because it is reaching real horror show levels here. I mean, wow. This is really too much.
And as can be expected, the Jew Diaspora on Twitter still wasn’t pleased:
I don’t think Trump even harbors hope of winning these people over anymore. He’s just stuck doing things for the Jews because they’ve got him over a barrel.
It also occurs to me that they’re doing away with the pretense that Jews are a religion, so that we can no longer have Jewish converts… that is, it seems that this law was also passed to clamp down on FAKERS! who were trying to wriggle their way into the Tribe.
