Obtuseness doth blind....
For example in this article from Takuan Seiyo at rightwing leftist blog Gates Of Vienna.
The first time I became aware of leftist Jews was when, in 1956, I looked up from my lead soldiers’ formation on the kitchen floor and saw my Jewish father’s 2nd (and only surviving) cousin enter our assigned apartment in commie Warsaw, pushing a wicker pram.
“Do you want these?” he asked. Under the baby blanket, the deep cart was filled to the brim with the combined works of Marx, Engels and Lenin...
In the fourteen years I spent at three universities in the 60s/70s I acquired a store of memories that resembles Kevin MacDonald’s, if at a greater distance from the radical Jewish milieu. I too perceived the radical politics, feelings of separateness and alienation, attitude of moral and intellectual superiority, hostility to Western cultural institutions, ethnic paranoia and bunker mentality, disdain for capitalism, generic tendency to impute and then combat perceived racism and fascism, disputatiousness and intellectual sophistry, negative attitudes toward Christianity, positive attitudes toward psychoanalysis and Marxism. I too had charismatic Jewish professors with a leftist view of European and American history.
So after affirming what MacDonald wrote, Mr. Seiyo writes,
Despite my long exercise in personal ethnography among Jews, including the long period among their — in my eyes — preponderantly disgusting stratum in the American social sciences academia, I have not met a single Jew who was motivated by the ethno-biological red-of-tooth-and-claw impulses it has become Dr. MacDonald’s life mission to ascribe to the Jews as a whole. Moreover, except for perhaps one-third of those in academia, mass media and the law, none of the Jews I have met had any of the corrosive leftist rancor described in “Madison,” while still being almost uniformly liberal.
Yes Mr. Seiyo wrote the above.....unflinchingly!
And as for the psychological traits that Prof. MacDonald has described, they are evolutionary in nature. Thus their casual observation is not likely.
He then asserts,
From the time the Jews arrived in chains and en masse in Rome, the one constant in Jewish history has been persecution...
What about Babylon and Egypt and Persia?
Those were long before Rome.
Of course Rome was a European civilization, so, for Mr. Seiyo, it is distinctly "evil".
Yes he certainly disproves Prof. MacDonald's analysis, doesn't he.
The stories of Esther and Joseph can certainly shed further light on this matter, in regards to what Prof. MacDonald describes as Evolutionary Psychology.
Ad of course while Mr. Seiyo rails on about "persecution" before WWII he kinda skips over the tens of millions of Europeans murdered and enslaved by first muslim then communist invasions of their lands.
("It remains a fact that the Jews, either directly or through their coreligionists in Africa, encouraged the Mohammedans to conquer Spain." The Jewish Encyclopedia (1906). Vol XI, 485.)
Of course what this all comes down to is race.
The discussion of jewish behavior vs. non-jewish behavior within The West is not the same thing because jews are not native to Europe.
They are not European by blood and are thus not a part of Western Civilization.
How an alien group misbehaves towards the civilization in which they have imposed themselves upon vs. how natives of that society misbehaves towards it are subject to different appraisals and responses.
By taking the "yeah, well the Europeans did it to Europe too" approach, people like Mr. Seiyo are trying to equivocate things that cannot justly be equivocated....
