Victim blaming, “the Jews are asking for it” edition

I have written before on the parallels between the demonisation of “TERFs” and similar untermensch, such as those who are Jewish, and specifically the attitude of the far left in the UK towards those they label “zionists”, as an excuse to indulge their antisemitism and how similar it is to the pomo authoritarian lefty hatred of women and the excuses they come up with to indulge that.

Yesterday we saw an attack in the USA, a culture where the president himself is fomenting hate and violence, and up pops a white supremacist with a gun and murders people in their synagogue (this is another common pattern, find a peaceful gathering of the “enemy”, places of worship and learning, and let rip)

Still there are segments of the British left, including HOL Peers who cannot bring themselves to condemn without the usual “but Israel” apologism for the murders. Again, yet another red flag. Why Israel and only Israel ? Every government needs criticism, but never should we justify the slaughter of citizens or those with family ties to a country on these (or any other) grounds.
