The best (GREATEST!) moment in American history! I was CHOSEN to save America! But especially Israel! https://t.co/jqHRDZ01tw— King God Emperor President BIümpf (@EmperorInChief) February 3, 2020
In case you were wondering, Nick Fuentes thinks that “any serious person” should “care a lot” about racial differences in intelligence.— Yoram Hazony (@yhazony) February 3, 2020
Oh, and also: A serious person would stay away from a “kosher nationalism.”
What America really needs is non-kosher nationalism, eh, Nick? https://t.co/oTSOLtyAOg
Nick, let me help you out with your terms here. The opposite of kosher is treif.— Yoram Hazony (@yhazony) February 3, 2020
So this non-kosher nationalism you’re proposing should be called “treif nationalism.”
What do you think? Kind of catchy, no?
Nick Fuentes is picking the right fight here.
National Conservatism or Kosher Nationalism in practice is nothing but Zionism. The last three years of the Trump administration has demonstrated that it is worthless. It is not even an improvement over the mainstream conservatism of the George W. Bush era.
If you took the mainstream conservatism of the George W. Bush era and put its tax cuts and Zionism on steroids, flipped its position on homosexuality 180 degrees and rebranded it and sold it as “nationalism,” you would have the substance of National Conservatism. Kosher Nationalism doesn’t just include Jews. The movement is about nothing else but Jews.
The GOP spent the whole year of 2019 on “fighting anti-Semitism.” I’m not even exaggerating. Trump kicked off the year by spending 15 minutes talking about anti-Semitism in his State of the Union Address. He called himself the “Chosen One” and the “King of Israel” on Twitter. The top legislative priority of the Republican Party in 2019 was passing anti-BDS legislation for Sheldon Adelson, AIPAC and Israel. It was swiftly passed by the Republican Senate. A similar anti-BDS bill passed the Democratic House. Donald Trump and the Republicans spent the whole year accusing the Democrats of anti-Semitism and promoting Jexodus. It went back and forth all year in Congress until Trump signed his executive order on combating anti-Semitism on college campuses in December. Dozens of Republican-controlled states have also passed anti-BDS legislation. Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida went to Israel and was paraded around by Sheldon Adelson wearing a yarmulke and signed the most draconian anti-Semitism bill. The Department of Justice hosted a conference on fighting anti-Semitism.
What else was accomplished by the GOP in 2019? Donald Trump recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. A Jewish settlement was named the Trump Heights in his honor. Trump designated the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a “terrorist organization.” Yoram Hazony held his first National Conservatism conference in which John Bolton was a keynote speaker and gave a speech on the danger of isolationism and David Brog opened the event by telling any White Nationalists in the audience to get out of the building. Nothing else of significance happened in 2019 except for hiring Elliott Abrams to overthrow the government of Venezuela. The whole year from Trump’s State of the Union Address in February to his anti-BDS executive order in December was spent on anti-Semitism.
We’re now a little over a month into 2020. Donald Trump kicked off the new year by assassinating Qasem Soleimani for Israel and nearly plunging us into a war with Iran. He has also released Jared Kushner’s Middle East Peace Plan which gives Israel the green light to annex large swathes of the West Bank. In between the anti-BDS executive order, the assassination of Soleimani and the future of the West Bank, the policy victories just seem to keep piling up for Israel. It is hard not to notice how Orthodox Jewish donors seem to get everything they ever dreamed of out of Donald Trump while the rest of the country has gotten nothing but lip service out of his presidency. Nick Fuentes needs to update his whiteboard because this imbalance has only become more staggering and obvious over the last year of the Trump administration.
Bernie Sanders is running on abolishing student loan debt. What is Kosher Nationalism offering that can compete with that message? Oh, well, Donald Trump ended the Iran Deal. He moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. He took out Qasem Soleimani with a Reaper drone. The perfect finale to this “America First” charade will be when Trump allows Jonathan Pollard to return to Israel before the election. It will be a fitting end to the era of Kosher Nationalism.
