The zombification of Western Civilization:

I.  Sighted on Twitter:

John Legend:
Even human beings who commit heinous acts are the same species as us, not "animals". I'm in the hospital with our new son. Any of these babies here could end up committing terrible crimes in the future. It's easy, once they've done so, to distance ourselves from their humanity.

Ben Shapiro:
My great-great-grandparents weren’t members of a violent and brutal gang responsible for widespread drug trafficking. Were yours?

Jonathan Weisman:
Ever heard of Meyer Lansky?

II. Do you notice what's happening here?

Trump referred to rapists, gangsters, murderers, drug traffickers and traders in human flesh "animals". When the attempt to smear him as having dehumanized all illegal immigrants failed, they immediately moved to Plan B: it is wrong to de-humanize hardened criminals.
And always there is some Jew's pathological need to point out how Jews are just as bad as those MS-13 gangsters.

III. So I have these points to make:

1. In Fargo Season 1, Lou, a former state trooper in conversation with the human demon Lorne Malvo in which he recounts a past experience of utter carnage and evil, says:

"I'd call it animal, but animals only kill for food."

2. When Chuck Schumer tweeted:
"When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t “animals,” and these people aren’t either."
did he know he was creating an equivalency between Jews escaping pogroms, and grinding poverty in Europe and MS-13 gangsters who deal in human trafficking, drugs, violence, rape, murder? 

3. When this uber-chuchem above berated Ben Shapiro for forgetting Mayer Lanski was a gangster (as if it is somehow relevant but never mind that now), little did he know that in 1970, Lansky fled to Israel. Although the Israeli Law of Return allows any Jew to settle in the State of Israel, the law allows the government to use discretion to exclude those with a criminal past. Two years after Lansky fled to Israel, Israeli authorities deported him back to the US.

So, in his example he was inadvertently reinforcing Trump's point.

4. When people in a certain culture normalize heinous criminals, claim that Farrakhan is justice hero, that Hamas terrorists are innocent protesters, that Iran is a "thriving democracy", that immigration laws are racist projects, that Assad is a "reformer", that using He or She to designate gender is bigotry, that Zionism is the only and worst form of anti-Semitism, that Jews should say Kadish ( a Jewish prayer for the dead)  for Palestinian terrorists, that Canadian PM is wise to welcome back an ISIS graduate with open arms, what does it mean about that culture? Where is that culture going?

Who was it said that empires are never defeated by outside forces but crumble from the inside. These are just warning signs of the great sickness at the heart of the great American experiment. We know it because all of these new principles I itemized are now being taught - indoctrinated - into the minds of young students who will be tomorrow's leaders. And what kind of worldviews are we producing in our universities? 

Here is one possibility:

"Winston, sitting in a blissful dream, paid no attention as his glass was filled up. He was not running or cheering any longer. He was back in the Ministry of Love, with everything forgiven, his soul white as snow. He was in the public dock, confessing everything, implicating everybody. He was walking down the white-tiled corridor, with the feeling of walking in sunlight, and an armed guard at his back. The longhoped-for bullet was entering his brain.
He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother. "

No wonder so many films today are about zombies.

The argument that the Arabs, being themselves Semites, cannot be antisemitic is only a quibble, for antisemitism means hatred of the Jews and not of the Semites. 

The fact that Arabs could see the moral havoc antisemitism has wrought
in Germany, and still not be inhibited, indicates the vehemence of their antisemitism. True, the Germans destroyed millions of Jews, but after reading what Arabs write about Israel I cannot escape the impression that many Arabs also harbour such a dream. It may be that such desires are more prevalent and central in Arab society than they were in the German society. 

Arabs have gone far in their vilification of Israel and the Jews, and the way back is not short.

There is now a tendency in some Arab quarters to give an Islamic form to Arab antisemitism. Many examples are found in the monthly magazine of Al-Azhar, the oldest and principal Islamic university in Cairo. In its October 1968 issue,
a religious dignitary evokes a tradition (hadith) according to which Muhammed declared that a Muslim slaughter of the Jews will precede the day of resurrection. The learned sheik asserts the authenticity of this tradition and its importance
as a gospel. He explains that killing Jewish minorities, whose position in the Arab countries was low, was unbecoming. (This illustrates the basic attitude toward the Jews. The Koran decreed(KK, 58; III, 108) that they should be in a low and miserable position.) Thus, God ordained that the Jews would get an aggressive
state and attain power, so that henceforth the hadith may be realized. The hidden meaning of this tradition, he argues, will thus unfold. Theological justification is given to politicide genocide and a comforting explanation to Arab defeats. Had there been a similar article in Christian publication, there would have a been an uproar of protest.

Professor R. I. Al-Fruki has given a series of lectures in the Arab League Institute of High Arab Studies on "The Origins of Zionism are in the Jewish Religion", in which he analyzes Judaism disparagingly. 

Arab efforts to differentiate between Judaism and Zionism usually founder. Both are too frequently described in Arab writings as identical (sinwaan), or else Zionism is said to be only "the executive mechanism" of Judaism. "World Zionism" and "world Jewry" are treated as identical. 

Thus it is no wonder that anti-Zionist Jews are stigmatized as hypocritical and fraudulent.

I do not argue that Arab antisemitism has social or religious roots; its origins are mainly political. Nevertheless, it is not an accidental growth in the Arab stand against Israel. The need to substantiate the evil of Israel, as. a state that deserves a death verdict, produced an inclination to present its evil as profound.
