As noted in the previous post, Theodore Herzl said that when Jews rose in society, they “succumbed to the power of the purse,” and became obsessed with making money and getting rich. This tended to make Gentiles angry.
Well, they are greedy and especially they are absolutely obsessed with becoming successful and many of them define that as “getting rich.” I’ve had Jewish counseling clients in their 20’s who told me their goal in life was “to get rich.”
I’ve noticed in life that people who have that explicit goal and work diligently towards it in their 20’s and 30’s tend to make a lot of money.
Most of us don’t want to be obsessed with money like that. Also, if you go down that path in life, you run into a huge number of greedy asshole business types who stab you in the back, steal your money and ideas, and do all sorts of other sleazy stuff. These types tend to be very short-tempered and irritable, which goes along with a hypercompetitive nature.
Bottom line is I don’t really like people who are totally into money, as in money is the only thing they care about. How are they going to be friends with me anyway? I’m poor. That’s going to be a constant source of conflict. When you’re poor, you have to have poor friends. You can’t have rich friends. And when you are rich, you need to have rich friends. Poor friends doesn’t work.
Jews who end up being poor or homeless God forbid are treated like utter garbage by Jewish society, which pretty much just spits on them. So poor and homeless Jews tend to resent their own people. I know this because I hung out on a JDL site once and read all their comments. Behind closed doors when they think no one is listening, Jews really bash their own people.
They say stuff that if I said it, I would be tarred, feathered, and ruined as an antisemite like Kanye is right now.
I think Jewish women are just women. Most races and ethnic groups of women are just women. Women more or less act the same everywhere. Men seem to be driven more to extreme outlier behaviors, while women tend to settle in the moderate middle as is their nature.
However, I think Jewish women do push their men to be successful, and they can definitely be bitches, that’s for damn sure. My Jewish girlfriend was like that (the woman behind the man type), and I actually liked it because I thought she might get me off my lazy ass and somehow get me to make some money in life.
I think Jewish women are perhaps under pressure to marry a rich or successful man, but they’re not under pressure to succeed themselves. Also they don’t seem to be nearly as aggressive as the men.
But many Jews, men and women, are just very nice, quiet, introverted, brainy nerds.
Anyway, this obsession with success is drilled into Jewish men’s heads from an early age, and every time you go to a family gathering, it’s all about how Cousin Abraham became a doctor or how Uncle Issac became an attorney. If you’re not successful, all those uncles with pinky rings won’t treat you well, and they will always compare you to the successful folks.
This makes Jewish men absolutely driven to succeed in life, and many of them do just that because as I said, if you dedicate your life to success, you often succeed. Most of us don’t want that obsessive, degrading hassle.
But the problem is that this tends to make Jewish men totally driven and uptight, short-tempered, rude, and very aggressive. Behind all of it is this terror of failure, which lingers over Jewish men’s heads their whole lives and probably drives a lot of the aggression too, fear being the handmaiden of rage after all. So Jewish men are a lot more aggressive, rude, belligerent, etc. than Gentile men. You will notice that a lot of Jewish men in academia or business have this almost “thuggish” vibe about them. They almost sociopathic. I don’t think they’re more likely to be psychopathic, but I think they would score higher on the PCL.
That’s the reason for the stereotype of the rude, belligerent, loud, offensive, obnoxious, aggressive Jewish man.
Of course this aggro behavior makes a lot of Gentiles not cotton to Jewish men very much, but on the other hand, I don’t think it causes severe or homicidal (“obsessive and conspiratorial”) antisemitism. This is mild “watercooler” antisemitism, and while it may be annoying, I don’t think it does any serious harm to Jewish people because most people don’t get too roused up about people who act like assholes.
After all, assholes are everywhere you look, and most of them aren’t even Jewish. Gentile assholes are a dime a dozen. You can’t go around killing them. You’d barely make it down your own block before the cops came. Hell, you might not even leave your house because you’d have to kill the assholes you live with first. In life, you can’t even punch assholes. You’d end up punching people everywhere you go, and cops would get called real quick.
Most people just make their peace with the esssential assholiness of many humans and figure the only thing to do about them is to avoid them. That’s my position.
