Outrage: 'White/Jewish City Council Member Representing NYC?'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 2/12/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld

Posted on 12/02/2012 4:15:27 AM PST by Eleutheria5

A candidate for a position on New York City’s 7th Council District said he opposed to the candidacy of his Jewish opponent, whom he referred to a “White/Jewish candidate”, because he was trying “to sneak into office like a thief in the night.”

City Council hopeful Thomas Lopez-Pierre wrote an e-mail to the members of the Douglass Grant Democratic Club, stating his opposition to rival Mark Levine.

The subject line of the e-mail: “A White/Jewish City Council Member representing Upper Manhattan?”

In an interview with The Jewish Week, Lopez-Pierre, an African American, maintained, "I don’t hate Jews; I love black people. I love political empowerment. … A black person has represented the district for many years, and we don’t want to see the black and Latino caucus be minus one."

“I don’t want a councilman that represents all the people; I want a councilman who represents my community,” he said during the interview, adding that the 7th District is located in upper Manhattan, which he says has a 70 percent minority population.

“They said those Jews are gonna lynch you,” Lopez-Pierre told The Jewish Week. “But because I work for myself, I don’t have to answer to anyone…”

Well, so much for a post-racial society after obamao’s election and reelection. Just goes to show you, it’s all tribal in the end, no matter who’s lying. Pathetic. No wonder societies that remain xenophobic have a tendency to last longer than many that don’t, as long as they produce children. Too late for the Western world, at least from where I’m sitting and watching the world go to hell in a hand basket.

What’s yours is theirs, and what’s their’s is theirs. Like when white yuppies start “gentrifying” a black neighborhood, and the blacks paint “whitey leave” on signs, as if they forgot that they ran the whites out in the first place.

And ALWAYS a black must represent blacks, but whites musn’t even breathe of wanting representation which looks like us and might have our interests as whites at heart. We’re the only race for whom that’s verboten.

We have this exact situation in the highest office in the land now-Hussein is making it clear that he’s there to further black interests, no different from some “chocolate city” mator. In which case, whites need our own representation, and it ain’t him.

Wonder how that thing about politics stopping at the water’s edge is going to work now, simce we have a black president who is only for his black constituents, and we whites will have to find our own political representation?

If it’s come down to this, I don’t see why we don’t just take the next logical step and divide the US into self-governing regions-a homeland for blacks, and a homelamd for whites. Our interests are already divided-they claim we want to oppress them (though they will follow us to the ends of the earth when we commit “white flight” to be near our evil oppressive ways), amd we are tired of subsidising their never-ending failure as a group to close the achievement gap, except by closing it “downwards” to the lowest common denominator. And being eternally blamed in the process.

Let’s just set each other free, and blacks can achieve their unrealised potential far away from us racist, oppressive whites-and we can keep more of our hard-earned money. Seems fair to me.

Sad part is the few Jews in the district will agree and vote for the A/A to show they are not bigots. Their grandparents might have gotten on the tains to prove they were good Germans.

Thomas Lopez-Pierre is one smart N*****. This interview will probably get him elected. Let’s see; 90% of the African-american vote. 80% of the Latino vote. 80% of the liberal Jewish vote. Yep, that should do it.

With the name ‘Mark Levine’? That’s pretty stealthy...

(I don’t know Mark, but he’s got my vote.)

Stuff like this is why Jews will eventually become overwhelmingly GOP voters.
John Derbyshire on the Lee Kuan Yew principle:

What about the future, then? Does the Republican Party have a future?

As I have been saying, there is no unity among white Americans. The old splits of education, class, sex, religion, city-country, and of course North-South still divide whites, and that is the basis of most of our politics. The Republican Party is white, sure enough, but whites aren't Republican.

This will presumably be less and less the case as whites head for minority status. At some point the fact of impending minority status will sink in, and whites will begin to sink their differences and circle the wagons. At some point the Lee Kuan Yew principle will take over. I've quoted it before, and I'll quote it again, because it's very quotable in this context. Quote from Lee Kuan Yew, who was Prime Minister of Singapore for thirty years, and the power behind the curtain for a further twenty in that very successful city-state, quote:

In multiracial societies, you don't vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion.

End quote.

With liberals (er, now “progressives”), race is far more about ideology than genetics. Notice the assumption that “people of color” would have different policy initiatives than a person who is “white/Jewish”. In this context, we could ask what would that difference be? Answer: more socialist. It appears that the real color of “people of color” is red.

Will Mr. Lopez-Pierre and his constituents reject all those tax dollars generated by Whites/Jews as well? Shouldn’t “empowerment” include self-sufficiency?

I love white people. I love them for the towering, inestimable contributions they have made to mankind, for the good of all. I love them for the glories of art, music, architecture they have left for the world to enjoy. I love Mozart, Beethoven, the beauty and discipline of ballet, the operas which send the soul soaring, the instrumental virtuosity required to play classical music, bluegrass, even progressive rock. I love our white males for the risks they have knowingly taken, even to the risk of their lives, for the sheer love of knowledge-ocean and space exploration. I love them for the explorations of earth they have undertaken, not only for wealth, but for scientific understanding. These were deliberate explorations, not some nomadic tribe stumbling across virgin territory in search of food. White males have pioneered great feats at the knowing risk of their lives, crossing great uncharted oceans, diving deep into these oceans, deliberately putting themselves in completely alien and hostile environments in both ocean and space exploration.

I love the Wright brothers and Kitty Hawk, Jacques Cousteau and his “Calypso”, Charles Lindbergh and his “Spirit Of St Louis”, Edmund Hillary climbing Everest “because it was there”. They claimed these feats not for themselves only, nor only for their nations, nor for their race, but as Neil Armstrong said “one giant leap for mankind”.

I love that our missionaries have sacrificed health and life to bring both physical and spiritual healing to peoples, giving their all in a spirit of altruism almost unique to whites. What I hate is that this same spirit of altruism has been distorted into whites as a race committing suicide. With us goes not only blonde hair and blue eyes, but all the factors that contributed to the glories, wonders, and accumulated knowledge of the past. In our very lifetimes, history has been revised to wipe whites out of history other than as unique oppressors of every other race, as if slavery and war had been distinct to whites, as if we ourselves had not endured such things in our past history, and not always under other whites. Ah well, it's a comforting if petty revenge that as we go, so go all the factors which enabled us to reach the heights of achievement. What self-respecting white person would want to live in a global Detroit (if it's even that civilised), or worse, a global Congo or Zimbabwe?

Don’t be behind the times, they don’t even have to use code, they can say the most blatantly racial things right in front of the news cameras and no one will even notice. It’s expected that they will look out for “their own”. “Our” president has done it, in ads during the campaign targeted to blacks telling them “I’ve had your back, now I need you to have mine” The head of the “Just-Us” dept can openly talk about his office in the context of “my people”. It’s only a thoughtcrime when whites think, God forbid act, racially. We’re going to have to somehow unshackle the chains of political correctness and white guilt, forged by decades of indoctrination and propaganda, from our minds if we’re to survive.

No, they won't. That's a double game they play, and no better example exists than that of “white flight” in which whites flee neighborhoods with rising crime, deteriorating schools, vandalism, etc, and go build the next prosperous peaceful community, only for blacks to again follow, clinging tightly to their “oppressors”. If a group of people were oppressing me, the logical reaction would be to put space and distance between us. Blacks, on the other hand, chase whites all over the map while claiming that we oppress them and that our presence holds them down and diminishes them. There's only one way that can make sense-that they're lying and that they're apparently unable to create their own good schools and law-abiding communities, and they can shut up with the money argument-the billions of taxpayer dollars shoveled into the furnace of the Kansas City School District to no avail put paid to that argument.

Interesting proposition, but just where would “black America” -go-, after the “divorce” was finalized?

We already know where “Hispanic America” will go. Can you say “Atzlan”?

I haven’t given it that much thought, because I don’t believe it will ever happen. It wouldn’t be in the best interests of blacks to give up their scapegoat and milk cow. If they were agreeable, ideally we would come to some agreement about how to divide the US into regions. You’d think blacks would jump at the opportunity to have their own black-run nation, with infrastructure and mod cons already in place, free from any white oppression.

Lopez-Pierre told The Jewish Week.

"I don’t hate Jews"

I say he does.

“I don’t want a councilman that represents all the people; I want a councilman who represents my community”

That would be the community of black racists.

“They said those Jews are gonna lynch you”

And the uptown Jewish RAT-voters claim they don't mutually embrace Christian Conservatives, because they will send them to the ovens.

Geeeeeeeeezz!

People like YOU want to get into office to fill their own pockets as fast as they can from their ignorant constituents, who only look at the melanin content of the skin instead of carefully examining the qualifications of candidates. That they are voting for someone more interested in milking them of their money never occurs to them, ‘cos a BROTHER would nevah do that, right?

And why can’t a white Jew be part of the black and Latino caucus if he represents a majority black and Latino district? This is serious racism.

Sure. Yuh. Jews are going around lynching people for walking all over them. That’s why nobody ever dares.

Yuh. Sure. Christian conservatives were worshipping Hitler and committing mass murder for their savior. They embraced National Socialism as part and parcel of Christianity. Songs like these convinced them.

We’re throwing out the Christian line
For Christ was just a Jewish swine
As for the mother, what a shame.
Cohn was the lady’s real name.

Or

To stab the priests with.

OK, you asked for it (but remember, you started it)

Well, a redneck nerd in a bowling shirt
was a-guzzlin Lone Star beer
Talking religion and-uh politics
for all the world to hear.
“They oughta send you back to Russia, boy,
or New York City one
You just want to doodle a Christian girl
and you killed God’s only son.”

I said, has it occurred to you, you nerd,
that that’s not very nice,
We Jews believe it was Santa Claus,
that killed Jesus Christ.

You know, you don’t look Jewish, he said,
near as I could figger
I had you lamped for a slightly anemic,
well-dressed country n-word.

No, they ain’t makin Jews, like Jesus anymore,
They don’t turn the other cheek,
the way they done before.
He started in to shoutin’
and a-spittin’ on the floor,
Lord, they ain’t makin’ Jews like Jesus anymore.

He says, I ain’t a racist, but Aristitle Onassis
is one Greek we don’t need
And them n-words, Jews and Sigma Nus,
all they ever do is breed.
And wops ‘n micks ‘n slopes ‘n spics
‘n spooks are on my list
And there’s one little hebe from the heart of Texas
is there anyone I missed ?

Well, I hits him with everything I had
right square between the eyes.
I says, I’m gonna gitcha, you son of a bitch ya, for spoutin’ that pack of lies.
If there’s one thing I can’t abide,
it’s an ethnocentric racist;
Now you take back that thing you said ‘bout Aristitle Onassis.

No, they ain’t makin’ Jews, like Jesus anymore,
They don’t turn the other cheek the way they done before.
You could hear that redneck holler
as he hit that hardwood floor
Lord, they sho’ ain’t makin’ Jews like Jesus anymore!

Everybody!:

They ain’t makin’ Jews, like Jesus anymore,
They don’t turn the other cheek the way they done before.
Well, the whole damn place was singin’
as I strolled right out the door
Lord, they ain’t makin Jews, like Jesus anymore.

They ain’t makin’ Jews, like Jesus anymore,
They don’t turn the other cheek the way they done before.
Well, the whole damn place was singin’
as I strolled right out the door
Lord.....
.....they ain’t makin Jews, like Jesus anymore.

There are some small efforts in that direction by many who want to secede. Even various groups that would normally be at each other have buried the hatchet to work together for this. Also, there would be one place where if one wishes to live in a multicultural area, there will be one place for that too.

I hate to think of this but in the last four years, I've seen a lot of this and it does make me wonder.
