It's likely the same story of how many americans claim to be irish because their great great great great grandfather was Irish.

That being said, Many Germans who moved around the world after the war were infact nazis, some of whom were engineers and scientists and recruited by other countries, others just fled. (Also many wern't nazis at all)

So she could have German heritage. Which would explain the complete lack of accent. It would be interesting to know who exactly came over from Germany in her family though. Many people don't even know their relatives were nazis.

Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History

In this long-awaited sequel to his international bestseller The Holocaust Industry, Norman G. Finkelstein moves from an iconoclastic interrogation of the new anti-Semitism to a meticulously researched exposé of the corruption of scholarship on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Bringing to bear the latest findings on the conflict and recasting the scholarly debate, Finkelstein points to a consensus among historians and human rights organizations on the factual record. Why, then, does so much controversy swirl around the conflict? Finkelstein’s answer, copiously documented, is that apologists for Israel contrive controversy. Whenever Israel comes under international pressure, another media campaign alleging a global outbreak of anti-Semitism is mounted.

Finkelstein also scrutinizes the proliferation of distortion masquerading as history. Recalling Joan Peters’ book From Time Immemorial, published to great fanfare in 1984 but subsequently exposed as an academic hoax, he asks deeply troubling questions here about the periodic reappearance of spurious scholarship and the uncritical acclaim it receives. The most recent addition to this genre, Finkelstein argues, is Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz’s bestseller, The Case for Israel.

The core analysis of Beyond Chutzpah sets Dershowitz’s assertions on Israel’s human rights record against the findings of the mainstream human rights community. Sifting through thousands of pages of reports from organizations such as Amnesty International, B’Tselem, and Human Rights Watch, Finkelstein argues that Dershowitz has misrepresented the facts.

Thoroughly researched and tightly argued, Beyond Chutzpah lifts the veil of controversy shrouding the Israel-Palestine conflict.

That's the thing about ethnostates: you are being critical of their people when you criticise their government, because they willingly chose to base their government on an ethnicity. I understand why they did it, the terror after the Holocaust was plenty incentive to huddle together and put up some walls, build some nukes, and ensure that they never get genocided again. However, it comes with a drawback. Suddenly, they have a state that is unlike any other in the world. They are stuck between modernity and progression whilst living in a country that is fundamentally based on some old book and a bunch of strict ethnic, religious and ancestral bloodlines.

Auschwitz survivor Hajo Meyer explains how apartheid Israel is similar to 1930s Nazi Germany....

Hajo Meyer in the Huffington Post: 'An Ethical Tradition Betrayed'

I was 20 years old when Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet army 55 years ago. This occurred just in time because 10 months imprisonment in Auschwitz-Gleiwitz-1 had weakened me considerably. One needed a hell of a lot of luck in order to survive that long under the circumstances in that camp.

Two important components of luck were on my side. First, during my first years as a refugee kid in the Netherlands I had learned to be a locksmith. So during the very strong winter of ’44-’45 I worked in the warmth of a factory. Second, I had acquired a very good and completely trustworthy friend, called Jos. We helped each other as much as possible. The two of us did indeed survive.

Another aspect of my friendship with Jos was that in spite of — or better, due to — the extremely high number of people per square foot in such a camp, one felt extremely lonely. Because of our friendship, mutual help and absolute mutual trust we were not lonely. This was vital to our psychological survival.

Psychological survival is at least as important as physical survival. In fact, the Nazi concentration camps were their attempt to dehumanize us Jews. If a prisoner became part of the oppression system by being Kapo, the dehumanization would be successful. Obviously, the non-Jewish members of the oppression system were also no longer fully human. I realized there that anybody from a dominating group who tries to dehumanize people from a minority group, can only do so if by education, indoctrination and propaganda he has already been dehumanized himself, independent of the uniform he wears.

It is a deep tragedy that in Israel this is not what one concludes from the experiences in Auschwitz. To the contrary, Auschwitz is elevated there into a new religion.

"In the beginning is Auschwitz," wrote Elie Wiesel. "Nothing should be compared to the Holocaust but everything must be related to it." This elevation has allowed it to be exploited for political ends. All that was once most valued in a rich and varied Jewish heritage — the centrality of the ethical tradition, for instance — disappears beside the Nazi attempt at annihilation. This Holocaust religion translates in the minds of many into the impossibility that Israel can do any wrong.

Auschwitz existed within history, not outside of it. The main lesson I learned there is simple: We Jews should never, ever become like our tormentors — not even to save our lives. Even at Auschwitz, I sensed that such a moral downfall would render my survival meaningless.

Like most German Jews, I was raised in a secular and humanist tradition that was more antagonistic than sympathetic towards the Zionist enterprise. Since 1967 it has become obvious that political Zionism has one monolithic aim: Maximum land in Palestine with a minimum of Palestinians on it. This aim is pursued with an inexcusable cruelty as demonstrated during the assault on Gaza. The cruelty is explicitly formulated in the Dahiye doctrine of the military and morally supported by the Holocaust religion.

I am pained by the parallels I observe between my experiences in Germany prior to 1939 and those suffered by Palestinians today. I cannot help but hear echoes of the Nazi mythos of "blood and soil" in the rhetoric of settler fundamentalism which claims a sacred right to all the lands of biblical Judea and Samaria. The various forms of collective punishment visited upon the Palestinian people — coerced ghettoization behind a "security wall"; the bulldozing of homes and destruction of fields; the bombing of schools, mosques, and government buildings; an economic blockade that deprives people of the water, food, medicine, education and the basic necessities for dignified survival — force me to recall the deprivations and humiliations that I experienced in my youth. This century-long process of oppression means unimaginable suffering for Palestinians.

It is not too late to learn a different lesson from Auschwitz. For example, in the last year, the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network has become a means for many — including young Jews in the United States — to challenge the precepts of Zionism and support the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel. Their goal, and mine, is to challenge the dispossession and exclusivity of a Jewish state, in their names and in mine. They understand the urgency of the classical Jewish concept of teshuvah, return from the wrong road. Further, they understand that the pursuit of justice and making ethically positive sense out of senseless suffering is not only part of an ancient Jewish interpretation and shaping of history, but is crucial for all of us in creating the world we want to live in, and to our moral survival.

As long as this video's been out, you had plenty of time to come up with a somewhat decent title instead of that vague bullshit. If' you're gonna repost, at least don't sleepwalk through it my guy.

Why is she crying though? Why do these people cry crocodile tears on cue

u/DreadSilver Jul 01 '22

It works. Some people use tears as a weapon.

u/0OOO00000OO00O0O0OOO Jul 01 '22

In essence it's victimhood as a weapon. Victimhood is one of the strongest weapons that exist today. One single person has the power of hurting a huge corporation. That was almost impossible before internet came around.

People who abuse victimhood really makes it harder for real victims. It's a "cry wolf" situation.

u/Scagnettie Jul 01 '22

They learned at an early age that crying could help get them what they wanted and get them out of trouble. So they learned to use it as a weapon. I've known people that could cry on que and they always used it to their advantage.

In basically all workplaces i have been to Karen employees has deployed this tactic as soon as people start complaining about their BS behavior. The problem is that it sometimes work and people feel sorry for them.

My man’s was ready this. It’s unfortunate, but he is very much spot on with his response. I equally understand her feelings about what she was trying to say, but she definitely was ready for that clap back. This is a perfect example of why it’s important to understand the complexity and the details of someone’s issues towards life altering situations that ultimately eradicated a whole entire generation of people simply because other ( Mostly influential elitist) didn’t like them. This almost sounds scarily familiar. America knows exactly what he’s talking about on a personal level because the very groups of people from which he speaking about reference what America did when it was being developed by colonizers. They wanted everything for themselves and we’re willing to kill anyone to get it. While at the same time trying to rewrite a falsified history and play the victim to anyone who challenged the details of that history. Moral of the story don’t enter the chat unless you have your facts and receipts ready.

He says it a lot better than I could. Israel is an apartheid state, no if buts or also’s. It is a bad country created out of a fairy story that says they can have their own land.

u/angelvvitch Jul 01 '22

Incels, alt righters, etc. love to harp on the emotional volatility of progressives but this is the real deal here…

watching a religious individual being slightly challenged or criticized is a meltdown of atomic proportions that dwarfs so called “progressive tears”.
