THREAD ON JEWS, BY A JEW.
Multiple things can be true simultaneously.
1) Jews are overrepresented in media, finance, and academia.
2) This is mostly a consequence of meritocracy.
Progressives and Nazis are united in their opposition to #2, albeit for different reasons. (1/15)
Nazis think that Jewish success is symptomatic of Jewish conspiracy. Progressives think that meritocracy is a myth that enables white supremacy. Therefore neither can accept #2.
The Nazi position, though BS, at least has the benefit of being internally consistent. But the progressive position doesn't have even that. Let's take a moment to explore why.
The progressive POV is that to the extent that Jews, blacks, etc. succeed in a white supremacist society, they do so at the cost of their racial/ethnic "authenticity."
The far left is just less overt about it because if they became openly anti-semitic, they would lose the moral authority to continue opportunistically wielding their favorite rhetorical weapon against their political opponents: the holocaust. The holocaust carries real emotional power for reasons that should be obvious. And that power is something that progressives positively salivate at exercising at every opportunity. No remark or event, no matter how unremarkable, is too trivial to compare to the holocaust. Mexican kids made to live together in a facility that provides meals, shelter, education, and even PS4 games while their unauthorized immigrant parents get their misdemeanors processed? That's literally Auschwitz. Trump calls the media "the enemy of the people?" He's literally Hitler!
