With a title like Zionism is racism, this article could easily be a scathing criticism of political Zionism based on Israel’s racial hypocrisy. However, I think any reader of The British Resistance who has entertained even a fleeting interest in Zionism will already understand the thrust of that argument.
The point I wish to raise is very different but still in keeping with the title, as you will see if you click on the “Read more” link below. My argument may prove to be controversial but it is almost certainly not original.
What do I really mean by Zionism is racism? I will get to the point straight away. By Zionism is racism I really mean that the two words have come to be used in exactly the same way.
The bogeyman of the establishment is the racist. Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party define evil for them: mass murderers, starters of wars, discriminators – brutal totalitarian megalomaniacal bigots. Of course, this stems from racism: Hitler hated Jews. He is the most perfect racist the world could have hoped to invent.
The concept of racism is made to take on all of these connotations. It is made clear that racism leads to war, riots, murder and general misery for all. Consequently, the word “racist” is now arguably the most powerful word in the English language. If someone is called a racist, they must be bad – in fact, the idea that they are bad is utterly unquestionable.
“Bad” is really too mild a term. A racist is so socially unacceptable that you shouldn’t be seen talking to one; you certainly shouldn’t entertain any of their views even hypothetically, and in fact, you have a moral obligation to scream and shout at them and call them even more nasty names, like bigot or xenophobe or even Nazi.
The word no longer requires definition, no longer requires justification. It is a catch-all defeating argument employed against all opponents of the establishment, even those who have never even made a passing reference to race in their lives – even those who have actively set out to prove how un-racist they are. The word still works.
What I wish to propose is not only that the word “racist” is an enormous stumbling block to reasoned and rational debate about multiculturalism, but that nationalists too are guilty of using it.
Now look back to the title of my article. Zionism is racism. Now pretend that the above few paragraphs were describing not the establishment world, but the nationalist world – and now swap “racist” for “Zionist”, and “Hitler” for “Israel”.
I am not arguing that Israel isn’t a power of evil. I happen to believe that it is, and I believe the same with respect to political Zionism.
However, any thinking individual can see as clearly that nationalists have begun to use their bogeyman, the world-meddling Zionist Jew, in exactly the same way as the establishment so effectively uses theirs. The difference is that we deploy our word of power not against our political opponents, but against one another.
Reading the various nationalist forums and blogs, you could easily come to the conclusion that everybody in the nationalist movement is a Zionist. After all, most of us have been accused of being either a Zionist or a state plant (and by extension, a Zionist) at some point in the past.
Again, it is a word requiring no definition. We know the Zionists are bad, and that must mean that anyone called a Zionist must also be bad. We too often seek no justification for the deployment of the Z-word, and consequently, it destroys relations between people who should otherwise be fighting the real enemy: the actual Zionists.
What is a Zionist? The answer is simple. A Zionist is any nationalist you don’t like.
Disagrees with you on the death penalty? Zionist.
Makes money, or is claimed to make money, from the movement? Zionist.
Enjoys some degree of popularity either within the movement or outside it? Zionist.
Isn’t quite as hardline as you? Doesn’t support compulsory repatriation for every single immigrant? You know what that person can be called.
I am not exaggerating; sometimes it really is that ridiculous. The Editor of this blog is less moderate than I am by a long shot (I think) and there is nobody I would suspect less of harbouring Zionist intentions i.e. the destruction of our country. And yet, the Editor of this blog is a Jew-loving anti-white Zionist.
They used to call Nick Griffin a Nazi when he was important. Nick Griffin was not a Nazi, as we all knew full well. Perhaps “Zionism is Nazism” would have been more appropriate as a title, since the exaggeration of the Z-word really is that great.
Until nationalists can stop bickering amongst themselves, the movement will never encounter success – not in a million years, no matter how bad things get, we will never see a nationalist government while everyone in the movement is a Zionist.
