On November 1st, The Los Angeles City Council voted 11-0 to adopt The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of antisemitism. This is not particularly surprising, as Los Angeles is the home to the 2nd largest Jewish community in the country and the third largest in the world.
The IHRA’s working definition is: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”
While this is a non-legally binding definition of antisemitism, the consequences of being accused by this definition have a history of negatively altering the life of the transgressor. The definition has been adopted by 37 United Nations member countries, including the United States, and 320 nonfederal government entities, including 22 States within the U.S. and several cities. In 16 countries worldwide, breaking antisemitism laws will result in criminal charges. Here is a list of antisemitic examples straight from the IHRA’s website:
“Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:
- Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.
- Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as a collective — such as especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government, or other societal institutions.
- Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.
- Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
- Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
- Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
- Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.
- Applying double standards by requiring a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
- Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.
- Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
- Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.”
America was once known as a haven and protector of Free Speech, where the 1st amendment was sacrosanct. But while the 1st amendment is invoked by many to defend their outlandish acts of unpatriotism or blasphemous conduct against the majority-held religious convictions of the population, it is disregarded for those who criticize Jews or their religious beliefs.
63% of America’s population as of 2021 is Christian. Yet, Christian perceptions of reality, truth, and justice are locked out of the culture-driving mechanism of the Entertainment and News Media. Criticism of and misconduct against Christians has been the norm for the past few decades, chiefly from the cities of New York and Los Angeles, cities known for their sizeable Jewish population.
2.2% of the American population is Jewish as of 2021, and their perception of reality, truth, and justice is the culture-driving mechanism of the Entertainment and News Media. The heart of it is Los Angeles, the hub of the Film Industry and titan of political power on the West Coast. The city carries immense clout, so the country watches when Los Angeles acts with strength.
Ever always the champion of the disenfranchised and downtrodden, Los Angeles has been the seat of many anti-police legislations. Its liberal city council for years has been calling for the defunding of the LAPD, chief amongst them being Bob Blumenfield. One search of Blumenfield’s Twitter history represents his love of bashing cops.
Brooklyn-born Blumenfield has served as chairman of the Valley ADL, one of the most influential non-governmental organizations in the world. The ADL is primarily focused on fighting Antisemitism and improving the civil rights of Jews around the world. It often displays and enforces an in-group preference that seemingly goes against the dogma of diversity. No one group or religion is above the other in the liberal worldview of equality and equity, yet look closely enough, and there is a totem pole of racial and religious hierarchy at work.
So while Blumenfield’s rants against cops are appropriate for a liberal spokesperson and politician, he signed a resolution to refund the LAPD when Jewish privilege was criticized. Signing with him were council members, Paul Koretz and Nithya Raman. The massively pro-gun control and pro-homosexual Paul Koretz is representative of Jewish power in Los Angeles County. On the other hand, Nithya Raman represents the proxy warrior class brought to America. Born in India, the self-avowed democratic socialist pays no respect to hallmarks of American culture, which includes bashing the police just like her crony Paul Koretz.
Nithya Raman, however, is a subservient minority group obeying the commands of a more powerful minority group. She signed the exact resolution as her esteemed fellow council members did. The resolution calls for leveraging the city’s resources to help fight a rash of recent “antisemitic” situations they claim were inspired by Ye West’s criticism of Jewish Power. “Hate speech can easily slide into violence….” the resolution stated fearfully, “and conspiracy theories of Jewish power are dangerous lies, which have fueled pogrom, expulsions, and ultimately genocide throughout history….”
The same City Council that was avidly anti-police now wants to refund them when Jewish people are criticized. The howlings of BLM fall on deaf ears when Jewish interests feel threatened. Parts of Los Angeles have become hostile to white people, and calls for more policing have fallen on deaf ears until one man made a single tweet and upended the world. The LA City Council is defending its own, or rather, its masters. If power is seen as absolute, it cannot be criticized. Resolutions like this are still in their infancy; America has yet to become Germany or one of the other 15 countries that have criminalized antisemitism.
Los Angeles is just the prototype for the New World Order’s domination of America’s city politics; Americans would do well to remember that. Oppose it while one can before everyone is forced to imitate it.
