Perfect example of why I am growing more and more distant with libertarians

I linked to this blog entry earlier.

Check out the comment section. You’ll see where I make my stance clear on Israel. Well, it seems that one of Bill Quick’s commenters over there seems to believe that I am too dumb to know anything about Israel.

His comments remind me of some of the tripe that the anti-Semites at antiwar.com like to write. I have blogged about that in the past, on my old blog.

My position on Israel is quite clear; that is God’s land, promised to the Jews in the Bible. Palestine has no claim to that land at all. Period, end of story. Furthermore, I happen to believe that the prosperity of this Nation is directly tied to the treatment and support of Israel.

I admittedly have disdain for identity politics and unfortunately, some American Jews do partake in that practice. Furthermore, I reject Wilsonian foreign policy, because it is, I believe, a wrong- headed policy for the US to pursue.

However, my feeling about a particular foreign policy does not equate to anti-Israel bias, or anti-Jewish sentiment. To me; a Jew is a Jew, whether here or abroad. If you express disdain for one; you express it for all of them. Most of that anti-Jewish hatred comes from kooky sites like this one here.

To me, there are two types of libertarian; of the InstaPundit kind, which I respect and of the Lew Rockwell kind —- which I utterly despise.

Now, where Bill Quick fits into that mold, I have no idea. But, based upon what I saw in that comment section over there. I doubt very seriously that I will be commenting over there again.

There are just some things that I will not compromise on, and this is one of them. Open-mindedness be damned; I just will not budge on iota on this one. No way, no how.

  1. Actually I think what Bill Quick is is a conservative (small “l” libertarian) who is against relying on social conservative issues. He is not against gay marriage, and so on. Me, I don’t tend to vote in National Elections based on SoCon issues. I would have to consider myself a SoCon, though. But I refuse to be pigeon-holed so that ‘single issues’ inform my votes. I fully support Israel, find American Jewish attitudes exasperating, but realize, also, that Israel is a Socialist nation. Ben Gurion was a Socialist, and the nation of Israel is Socialist. Maybe that works for them. I don’t really know. But I wholeheartedly support their continued existence and will never stop.

    Commenters are what they are. Some are ill-informed, some are not. All have their own viewpoints. That doesn’t mean that Bill Quick is in agreement. :)

      That’s a load of bullshit. Israel is a free Democracy. Sounds like you have spending too much time over at Jeff Rense’s site or at Stormfront.

      I will never, ever understand Jew-haters and their whole, “America is a ZOG!!!!!!11 Eleventy!!!11″ idiotic nonsense. :roll:

      People need to get over their bitterness that America liberated the Jews and basically recognized their state. The truth is, if the old WASP’s kids had been interested in keeping the businesses, instead of being lazy, playboys and socialites, maybe we would not have a Jewish controlled and influenced media. But, the WASP’s children were lazy, and lived off mommy and daddy’s money and we got what we got. Get over it and move the hell on.
