Well, sort of.
I think most of our Jewish commenters on here are pretty honest – David, Mike Levine, Mort Goldman, Olive. Am I leaving anyone out? Hehe.
But yeah, Jews are liars, as a race. Or as a religion. Lie, prevaricate, engage in sophistry, on and on. Especially when it comes to issues of the tribe. They lie to protect the Jews. A lot of Jews are pretty honest. The ones on this blog seem pretty straight up. But they are more the assimilated types. The more Jewish you are, the more you lie. There is a book by Samuel Roth called Jews Must Live! written in 1936. He describes how Orthodox Jews lie so much to each other growing up in their families that it almost drives them all nuts.
That said, the Jews I knew and who were close to my family were pretty honest people.
But you look around at the biggest, most expert liars in our society all over the political spectrum and lo and behold, you see a bunch of snarky lying Jews. Everywhere you look.
I used to spend a lot of time with them on Usenet. Before I went on there, I was an idiot Judeophile who believed that all anti-Semitic stereotypes were “lies.” This is actually one of the biggest Jewish lies of them all. After a few months, every day I would almost fall out of my chair for hours on end. Here were scores of Jews prancing across my screen all day long living out just about every nasty anti-Semitic stereotype known to man! Damn! The anti-Semitic stereotypes were right after all!
One of the things I figured out after a while is that Jews are simply the finest liars on the planet. It’s not necessarily that they lie more than another ethnic groups. Hell, everyone lies, especially nationalists, capitalists and elites. But Jews are the finest liars that ever lived! They take it to a fuckin’ art form! No wonder so many of them are lawyers.
One reason the Israelis do so well in the propaganda war is that the Arabs are such shitty liars. Arabs lie at least as much as Jews, Hell, probably even more. All Arabia is based on ethnocentric dishonesty. But no one believes the Arabs when they lie. They couldn’t fool a horse! But the Israelis have engaged in some superb lying, some of the finest on Earth. They even have a name for it – Hasbara.
One of the things that enraged me so much when I got involved in Middle East stuff in 2001 was that I finally figured out that I had been lied to by my whole society (really the Jews) about the ME for 43 years. I had never even heard the other side of the story. That pissed me off so much I almost saw red.
Though I must admit that these rightwingers lately are really giving the Jews a run for their money. The Rush Limbaugh – Glen Beck – Bill O’Reilly – Fox News – Republican Party – Tea Party Crowd has taken the usual lying of the elites to new heights. My conclusion is that this crowd of rightwingers, basically the neocons, are essentially Jewish people. They are Judaized Gentiles, infected with the Jewish spirit. That’s why they fuckin’ lie so much.
The rich always lie. So do nationalists, so do states, so do elites, so do capitalists.
But Jews have actually staged coups that took over entire academic fields and replaced them with Jew-friendly lies, or just out and out lies. The Frankfurt School’s insurgency against various disciplines, the Boasian takeover of anthropology, the neoconservative insurgency in political science and the Friedmanite guerrilla war against economics all come to mind. It takes a lot of skill to pull that off.
