"an anti-Semite is not someone who dislikes Jews,
it's someone some Jew dislikes."
And in line with ExC's deconstruction of "anti-Semitism" and all the other unreal isms and phobias that haunt the infected Western mind and soul.
A homophobe is not someone who dislikes gays, but someone some gay dislikes.
A racist is not someone who dislikes Blacks, but someone some Black dislikes.
The list goes on.
And just to review, I am not saying that dislike or hatred of Jews, gays, Blacks, Muslims, gypsies does not exist. Of course it does.
Making isms and phobias out of these attitudes (and the beliefs and actions that accompany them) judges them to be both A. incorrect and B. evil. Those who hold these unorthodox views are thus stupid and evil.
The ism and phobia manufacturing industry makes sure that the only groups who merit this kind of protective labeling are groups that they, the Left, endorse.
But what if there are correct, factu al, empirical data AND good reasons of self-interest, common good or group survival involved in disliking any of the above groups? Or any group at all?
(Not really. Straight White Males are routinely treated as corrupt and evil, but there's no ism or phobia attached to H8ing them...cause they are not Officially Sanctioned Victim Groups.)
By pathologizing unwelcome beliefs (facts, especially), attitudes and actions, the ism and phobia discourse requires the positive affirmation and virtual celebration and worship of all these groups.
You must praise and support and celebrate (and always accomodate and acquiesce to) Jews, gays, Blacks (and Latinos and Asians), Muslims, gypsies...you name it. Oh, and wymyn, of course.
Failure to do so provokes the charge of ism and phobia and you're a Nazi.
