I had a ridiculous Twitter war with a NYC radio host yesterday.

In response to a pretty absurd tweet by Katie Halper,  who says she is a history teacher (God help us), I wrote:


To which she answered sarcastically:




So I dutifully responded that it was Sarsour herself who says that she could change her racial identity by changing her clothing, not me:


The first tweet I linked to is not embedded, so here it is from last year, where Sarsour says she used to be white and now she isn't:



But meanwhile Halper decided to branch the thread off to say that I was clearly the idiot:



To which I responded that if anyone is showing a lack of integrity, it is Halper:



Halper is a nobody but she represents the moronic ultra-Left of today (she calls herself a "Bernie-bro.") It is sort of idiotic that she actually cannot fathom that in today's environment, claiming to be a person of color is indeed a way to make yourself appear as a perpetual victim and therefore above criticism, which is exactly what Sarsour is doing. It is a political move, just like Salazar's pretense to be Jewish.

The bizarre thing is that nowadays, claiming to be a person of color is more important than one's actual color. 

If Sarsour can pass as white - which she admits she has - then how is she possibly being disadvantaged as a New Yorker who looks white? She chooses to wear the hijab for whatever reason (apparently more for identity politics than religion). I choose to wear a yarmulka. Which of us is more disadvantaged by a public display of our religion? And why does her hijab make her a person of color, and my headcovering does not do the same for me?

Moreover, according to the modern racists who feel that color is something one can choose rather than something objective, a Jewish member of Likud who is undeniably black does not get the "victim" brownie points of being a PoC, but a blonde Palestinian girl who punches a soldier does. 

There is discrimination in the world based on skin pigment. That is not in question. What is bizarre is that the people who pretend to care about racism are creating a funhouse mirror environment where they want to define the people on their side as people of color, and the people they disagree with  are automatically considered white. To them, the world really is black and white, and they want to ensure that all people they consider victims are also considered non-white while those they consider oppressors must be call white.

The formula seems to be that a Muslim is always considered a person of color and a Jew is always considered a white person, no matter how light or dark they are. And that completely arbitrary definition of race is what is proving that those who pretend to be against racism nowadays are too often the real racists.

Many of the people who really are being discriminated against cannot be considered victims because they are the wrong religion. The new "anti-racist" Left is institutionalizing antisemitism with their bizarre thinking that Israeli Jews are white, Palestinians are of color,  there is only room for one good side in this world and the white side must be bad.





We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.
