Detroit Billboard Denounced as “anti-Semitic” for Putting America First
The organized Jewish community, led by the Anti-Defamation League, has condemned a billboard in Detroit, Michigan which simply reads, “America First, Not Israel,” denouncing the advertisement as “anti-Semitic.”
Considering the dominating and tyrannical influence of organized Jewry in America, where any criticism of Jews or the Jewish state of Israel is strictly forbidden and hysterically decried as “anti-Semitic,” it’s amazing a billboard of this nature would even be allowed to go up in the first place. The Jerusalem Post reports:
A billboard in Detroit that reads “America First Not Israel” is causing controversy and some are accusing its message of being anti-Semitic.
The large sign, placed on 8 Mile Road in Detroit, says that it was “Paid for by Deir Yassin Remembered,” a New-York-based organization that has been posting similar signs throughout the country. Although the metro-Detroit area has one of the largest Arab populations outside the Middle East, as well as a sizable Jewish community, the sign was placed in a part of the city that is neither predominantly Jewish nor Muslim.
In an interview with Detroit’s WXYZ Fox News affiliate, the Anti-Defamation League’s Heidi Budaj said that the ad and its choice of location is trying to “drive a wedge between the American people and the state of Israel.”
“This particular sign goes a step further and raises an old anti-Semitic canard of dual loyalty, implying that Jews are not loyal to the country in which they live,” Budaj said. “Make no mistake that while many of the Jewish people in the United States support the state of Israel as a Jewish state, we are loyal Americans.” […]
Unsurprisingly, Ms. Budaj is clearly missing the point of this particular billboard. The billboard is not “implying Jews are not loyal to the country in which they live,” (which is largely true considering the vast majority of Jews in America and the Western world support the Jewish state of Israel and often have dual citizenship) as Ms. Budaj would have us believe. Ms. Budaj’s efforts to demonize the message of this billboard as “anti-Semitic” is an obvious attempt to marginalize and discredit the entirely sensible and rational political sentiment being expressed.
The billboard is making a simple, clear political statement: it is time to put America first, not Israel (or any other foreign nation).
For decades now, the United States federal government has put the interests of the Jewish state of Israel ahead of America’s. Jewish neocons and Israel-firsters constantly portray Israel as a “strategic ally” of the United States, a bulwark against “radical Islamic terrorism,” and the only “liberal democracy in the Middle East” that must be blindly supported regardless of the Jewish state’s actions, policies, or criminal behavior.
The simple fact of the matter is that as a direct result of Jewish hegemony over American politics and culture, Jews enjoy a special protected status which translates to unwavering political, financial, military, and diplomatic support for their Jewish ethnostate occupying Palestine.
We fight wars on Israel’s behalf at the behest of Jewish neocons and propagandists. We give the Jewish state billions of dollars every year while neglecting our own veterans and citizens. In short, we put the interests of the Jews and their Jewish ethnostate over the interests of our own nation.
It’s time to put America first, and dump Israel.
