I must admit I like the attitude of Putin towards the Jews. He made them like any other ethnicity/minority, and he can actually talk about them. Unlike in the West.
Yeah, it’s really great. It helps that all of the dual loyalty crowd and traitors pretty much left for Israel and the US. Yet a lot of the Russian Jews in Israel are still patriots. So much traitors left that the only Jews you have left are patriots.
- Rightwing nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky, supposedly an antisemite, has been revealed to be Jewish himself!
- Putin may well be partly Jewish via his paternal grandfather. He even went back and changed the relative’s name in his biography because it sounded too Jewish.
- Sovovlov the wild TV pro-Putin propagandist, is Jewish!
- Prighozin of Wagner mercenary group fame is half-Jewish via his father.
I think a lot of Jews married into the Russian population, possibly to escape antisemitism. There’s a saying in Germany:
There’s a little Jew in every German
and I think it might be true in Russia too. Which is odd because that means the Nazis were literally murdering their own kind when they were killing German Jews.
And indeed, it does now appear that Hitler was part-Jewish. How much I’m not sure and it was on his father’s side. Someone on that side knocked up the Jewish maid, and this ended up being Hitler’s line.
Yes, Putin does have a nice attitude about Jews, and they can say things about Jews over there that you can’t say here. Lavrov noted, in reference to Zelensky’s Jewishness:
The wise Jewish people have told us that for a long time it has been noted that some of the worst antisemites were Jews themselves. Even Hitler is said to have been part-Jewish.
Ok, no antisemite would ever call Jews “the wise Jewish people.” They just don’t do that! No one who talks like that is a real antisemite.
But it doesn’t matter. Here in the US you can’t say some of the worst antisemites have been Jews themselves. That’s an “antisemitic canard” and you are blaming Jews for their own oppression.
You also absolutely cannot say that Hitler was part-Jewish. US Jews don’t want to investigate that question at all. They just say he wasn’t remotely Jewish and shut down all conversation about it as “bad for their Jews.” They don’t care whether it’s true or false. They just think it looks bad for them. It is absolutely an “antisemitic canard” in this crazy Judeophilic country to say Hitler was part-Jewish.
