"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."

Negating The Numbskulls At Noon
I have dealt with the false accusation of anti-semitism many times, already.
so you see, I've been dealing with that slander for years.
Apparently under the rules for discovering anti-Semitism as redefined in the last several decades includes wishing that millions of Jews had been allowed to come to the United States, my country, the country of the idiots who are making that accusation, instead of either dying in Europe in the Holocaust or in a state on land donated by my country which would not be constantly at war and under attack and which, as a result, would devolve into a military dictatorship and, likely, an apartheid state if its Jewish identity is to be maintained. That is the fact of what I said would have been preferable to the course of action that was taken. I wanted Jews to live their lives out as Jews, keeping their religious and cultural identity and the Palestinians to live out their lives as who they were, all of them able to make their living off of their own land and living on their own terms. Apparently wishing that for Palestinians is the unacceptable thing, the "Brain Trust" has more in common with the neo-cons than they'd like people to notice.
Oh, and, apparently, according to the Brain Trust these people don't exist.
