unapologetically Jewish shitpost time 

And he took up his keyboard, and said: The saying of Balaam the son of Beor, and the sayng of the man whose eye is opened;

The saying of him who heareth the words of G-d, who seeth the vision of the Almighty, Fallen down, yet with opened eyes:

How goodly are thy arguments, O Jacob, thy discourse, O Israel.

Dark Crystal, blood libel 

@Ethancdavenport So I'm in the process of watching the Dark Crystal series. As a Jew I definitely have a lot of uncomfortable feelings surrounding the Skeksis. The truth is that the Skeksis ooze antisemitic caricature.

... and I don't for a moment believe that it's on purpose.

That's what is scary, though. I would be very surprised if anyone with overt Jew hatred had any significant creative control over the series but...

@Ethancdavenport I literally don't have the space to list all the ways that the Skeksis are antisemitic caricature and blood libel is just one of them. More alarming to me is that these caricatures are portrayed running an illegitimate shadow government that everyone else is afraid to question.

... because other oppressed characters react to any criticism of the Skeksis as if it were heresy.

@Ethancdavenport It's practically polite conversation to ~point out~ how you can't criticize Jews without being accused of antisemitism and that somehow such an accusation is deeply harmful to the accused. I see this across the political spectrum and it's extremely common.

Moreover, it's modern.

Dark Crystal, blood libel 

@Ethancdavenport So why am I so worried about the fact that I don't think the Jim Henson company has a Nazi plant in it?

I'm alarmed because goyische artists keep recreating these caricatures that are easily recognizable as Jews without meaning to. I'm alarmed because the association between our people and this culture's perception of evil is so closely linked that this just keeps happening.

... without meaning to do it.

@Ethancdavenport Antisemitism is very much alive. It is as alive as it ever was. It's just momentarily dormant.

Why?

Jews make great propaganda right now. We illustrate the difference between the good guys who just happen to be building concentration camps where children are beginning to be murdered and the bad guys who the good guys soundly defeated in 1945.
