On the Most Ancient Virus to Infest the Human Soul ( First Published in 2004. Republished Because Reasons)

Antisemitism is not a sign, a symbol, a bullet or a gas. It is a Virus. It is the oldest known virus to infest the human soul. In those infected, the virus is clever enough to mask it’s existence by renaming itself as “anti-Zionism.” Through the renaming of this ancient disease as a “political problem,” infected souls can transmit the virus to their friends, families. They can spread their disease at their schools and in their their community, church, or nation. The virus is also transmitted by exchanging infected fantasies with infected ideologues. By changing it’s name the disease made it possible for many to deny that they have contracted the virus, and that their souls are chancre-ridden and rotting. This facilitates the current outbreak.

Yes, antisemitism is a clever virus and this shape-shifting is one of its oldest methods of perpetuating itself. Like other viruses currently feasting on humans, this one always has a pleasure principle associated with it. It feels good to get it and we live in the plague years of “If it feels good, do it.” Those whose moral immune systems have been previously compromised by other pleasure-born diseases have souls which are particularly susceptible to this virus.

The origin of the virus is unknown, but many suspect the area to be Bablyon and Sumur with an early leap across borders into Egypt. It was later transmitted through not-so-casual contact to much of the world by traders out of Northern Africa and the Roman Empire.

During the period following the fall of Rome, the virus found traction in early Christianity as a common carrier. In this host it thrived, and was able to survive and spread for many centuries. Of late, many parts of Christianity, now that it has become fragmented, have rejected the virus and those who host it, but strains of the virus can still be found at the center of many subsets of the Christian faith today.

Islam, of course, is the not-that-new major religion to not only host the virus, but to celebrate being infected with it, and to actively take measures to make sure that, within the body of Islam, the virus can thrive and expand. What to do about this new and virulent strain of the virus is something that is now consuming a great deal of the attention and treasure of Western Civilization.

In the past, treatment of the virus involved the application of large amounts of steel and fire, but this age is still experimenting with targeted surgery of the infected parts of Islam to see if a less Draconian cure is possible. Recent events confirm that this sort of microsurgery will probably be ineffective since the virus seems to have become the host.

Flare-ups of the virus have been common across Europe throughout the last 2 millennia, but an overwhelming series of eruptions in Europe from England through the lands controlled by the USSR, required a global intervention before the conflagration was deemed to be put out. This, of course was an illusion, since like the root burns engendered by forest fires, it only smoldered underground in the human and social hosts for decades before erupting once again in the vast Petri dish of the Middle East.

With the advent of the “Palestinian cause” becoming chic in Western, European, and Liberal circles — driven at first by Socialist Progressive romanticism in the late 1960s and early 1970s — being infected by virus has once more become acceptable to exhibit socially in certain ways. Indeed, in many circles and societies, having the virus has lately become a highly prized fashion accessory to popular academic, media, and state ideologies. It is now actually a badge of pride in many Western circles to appear at various events wearing gold-plated buboes inset with multi-faceted Kaposi’s sarcoma that contain the virus at their core. Many now believe this intellectual adornment to actually be beautiful.

In a recent mutation, the virus has shown that it can leap the blood/brain barrier and actually infect Jews — if they feel safe within their “advanced” society. The current term for this mutation is “Juicebox Mafia” in which self-styled “intellectuals” of Jewish lineage actually feel it is “intelligent” to call for a world in which it is easier for Arabs and other Islamic groups to kill Jews wholesale. This sort of strange host to the virus is replacing the previous host termed “the self-hating Jew.” The reason for the rise of the Juicebox Mafia is unclear, but it may well have to do with desires for celebrity and paychecks that exceed the desire to live.

The virus, because it is an ancient and clever virus, can lie dormant for years, and like HIV, can mutate around a lot of therapies designed to destroy it.

As noted above, in the recent past, it has been shown that large doses of steel and fire can eradicate the virus in some populations, but only for a time. A cure is promised, but seems to be always delayed. The only measures that work are, at best, prophylactic. Another strategy is strict monitoring to prevent the spread of the virus. This seemed to be holding the virus at bay for decades. Lately, however, this method has broken down. The virus, like terrorism, has recently been able to piggy-back on the world-circling data-stream, and infect individuals and groups previously deemed immune. The current strain has indeed become so virulent that large blocks of Jewish people, in Europe, America and even Israel, have become infested.

As history demonstrates, there is no immunity to be had from the virus. The only strategy that seems to work is abstinence. This is accomplished by a rigorous rejection of all attempts by the virus to establish itself within an individual host. Constant monitoring and the suppression through education or other means of outbreaks in groups or ideologies or nations is also required.

Since the virus has been present in human hosts for well over 4,000 years, hopes for eradication in our lifetime are slim. Hopes for eradication in the future are better in civilized countries if, and only if, members of the generations now living and infected with the virus become dedicated to not passing it on to future generations. The virus is found nowhere else in nature except within the human host. If it is denied transmission to the young, it can be eliminated from the world in three generations. If… but only if.

Outlook? Not favorable.

    Seems to be over blown and heavily magnified heavily on the web. I have known thousands spanning more than half a century and have never seen or heard antisemitism with my own eyes and ears. Maybe a joke now and then, maybe once every 10 years, but that’s it. I don’t think most people pay attention to that stuff unless they are directly effected by it. But that’s just my take.

    You know, if “antisemitism” weren’t just a made up word designed to allow B’nai B’rith, the ADL, and the Southern Poverty Law Center to milk the schmucks out of more of their shekels, it would be used to cover anti-Arab “bigotry”. But, it doesn’t, does it? Only applies to the (((the tribe))). Why do you think that is? Be sure and look up who is a Semite if you don’t grasp the thought.

  • Fuel Filter December 11, 2017, 8:48 AM

    Over the past 4-5 years I have though long and hard about the following:

    Re: the holocaust and anti-Semitism:   My longest running complaint is that pretty much *everyone* has been trained to think it was only the 6 million Jews that got eliminated by the Nazis. You dare to tell the ADL or other prominent Jews that there were 6+ million non-Jews as well you get vacant stares, ignored or, more likely, argumentation.

    I have never, and I mean *NEVER* read or heard anything regarding the other 6+ million non-Jews slaughtered in the camps and shot down in ditches from any major Jewish publication or prominent Jew whatsoever. Commentary Mag, Front Page, Tablet, Mosaic, Caroline Glick, Bill Kristol, those frauds (and supposed ex-Communists) David Horowitz and Ron Radosh (who crucified Diana West and got her banned from FPM because she told the truth), Steven Spielberg, none of them. Sure, those forgotten ones get lip service in the holocaust museums but that’s about it. They are *that*  focused and single-minded. They are arrogant and self-obsessed and I have come to the conclusion that they care not one whit for the sacrifices the Christian world has made for them.

    I used to be very pro-Semitic. No longer. Now I’m just indifferent to their screams. They want to push the self-destruct button in the name of “human rights”?  Welcome to the new and improved Zyklon-B.

    I fully support Trump’s position on Israel and moving our embassy to Jerusalem, if, for no other reason, to enrage the goat-fucker Muslims (who Israel has often enabled in the past) ,neo-Nazis (and quite a few “Christians”) for their visceral hatred of Israel. They deserve their own nation. They paid in blood many times over for it for over 1,400 years against team Mo. 

    But they want to cast themselves as the only victims of wholesale murder by the Nazis?  Fine and Dandy.  Fuck ’em. As a result they have lost their primary status as the oppressed minority with me, and a whole lot of others, a long time ago.

    I would hazard a guess that this quote is somewhere in their canon of scripture, but perhaps to often conveniently forgotten:

    “What ye sow, that shall ye reap.”

    Perhaps *that’s* a lesson that should be preached on Saturdays.

    Came across an interesting fact recently, the result of most studies of the genome of the Palestinians indicate that they are not very closely related to the Jordanians or the Syrians or even the Egyptians.
    They’re Jewish.

    Antisemitism … a strange phenomenon … has arisen out of thin air for no discernible reasons, all through recorded history.

  • james wilson December 11, 2017, 11:46 AM

    Anti-Semitism is either forever unexplainable, unknowable, mysterious, a virus, or, some simply do not wish to acknowledge the extreme vices that travel with extreme virtues.

  • Howard Nelson December 11, 2017, 12:23 PM

    Too often instead of self examination the easier course to a scapegoat is found.
    Long-lasting scapegoats for ethnic, racial, and religious purposes have been Hindus, sub-Saharan Africans, Roma, and Jews.
    If today the scapegoated survivor generations emphasize helping their own groups it’s because each have their resources fully needed for their group members. Shame on them? The saints among us would serve all according to need. That’s what charities like Save the Children, Salvation Army, UN WHO, and other non-denominationals do.

  • Howard Nelson December 11, 2017, 1:35 PM

    @Anonymous White Male
    The only anti-Arab bigotry I’m aware of is that from non-Arab Iran, Israelis for the most part welcome Christian Arabs and despise Islamist Arabs, as I suspect would most Americans.
    The term ‘antisemitism’ was created in 1881 Germany, as a way of academically referring to opposition, condemnation of Jews. Too coarse to say anti-Jew. And the semitic Arabs in Germany were too few to be targeted for worthwhile disenfranchisement.
    Recognizing the murderousness of Islamists, driven by the immutable 100+ verses of violence
    in the Koran — aimed against non-Muslims, we offer the term ‘Islammetusia’ as the rational fear of Islam, justified by the viciousness and dedication of its Muslim adherents.
    Irrational fear of Islam, Islamophobia, does not exist in our world.
    Thus, anti-IslamoSemitism is a rational survival response to jihadism (Islamism).

  • ghostsniper December 11, 2017, 1:38 PM

    “…do not understand the hatred…”

    Hatred by whom?
    Remember, the winners write the books and none of us were there.
    I have nothing good nor bad to say about anything jewish, no more so than any other religion.
    I’m indifferent, but tired of the whole thing. -sigh-

  • Howard Nelson December 11, 2017, 2:12 PM

    @Fuel Filter by by
    You are correct in taking to task the organizations and many individuals you mentioned, for not persistently pressing the need to support other true victim groups. Each have their hands full with ‘their own’ group’s urgent needs.
    It seems there are a goodly number of interreligious groups serving the purpose you call out.
    I have NOT seen any of those you mentioned, or any others, indicating that Jews were the sole victims of barbarities or genocide. The JewishVirtualLibrary.org discusses a wide range of groups murdered by the Nazis and Soviets. The Nazis murdered 11 million — Christians, Jews, Roma, Atheists, … whether child or adult, mentally ill, homosexual, physically crippled or not.

  • Anonymous White Male December 11, 2017, 3:30 PM

    @Howard Nelson

    From the Encyclopedia Britannica:

    Although the term now has wide currency, it is a misnomer, since it implies a discrimination against all Semites. Arabs and other peoples are also Semites, and yet they are not the targets of anti-Semitism as it is usually understood. The term is especially inappropriate as a label for the anti-Jewish prejudices, statements, or actions of Arabs or other Semites.

    Anti-jew too course? To whom? Certainly not the Germans. Besides, Germans would not have used “anti-jew”, would they?

    Your comment about scapegoating the jews is laughable. Perhaps, you can explain why they, and only they, have been kicked out of over 100 countries since the time of Carthage? Sometimes more than once! And then did everything they could to get back in. You know, if a group of people were kicked out of one, maybe two countries over the centuries, you might pass it off as needing a scapegoat for their problems. But, over one hundred times? Come on, at this level maybe they were the problem. It’s sort of like divorce. Divorced once, could have been your partner. Divorced twice, well, maybe she was trying to quit smoking. But, by three, you can pretty much admit it was you.

  • Howard Nelson December 11, 2017, 4:56 PM

    @AWM, I agree with the EB comments about the term anti-Semitism being a misnomer, since its intent was the Jew in Germany, as I indicated.
    Anti-Jew too coarse? Yes, to the so-civilized sensibilities of the haters who would benefit by the Jews’ unjustified diminishment of social and economic position.
    Scapegoating, 100 countries ? Please offer referrals to the reasons, rationales, evidence for banning, banishing, dispossessing their Jewish residents.
    You may wish to start with Nazi Germany, then the context of France’s Alfred Dreyfus Affair infamy, then Soviet pogrom history, then Spanish Inquisition rationale, …

  • John A. Fleming December 11, 2017, 10:43 PM

    I’ve seen it happen too many times. “anonymous commenter” makes an oblique reference to “They”, as if he has the glasses. If he doesn’t get an instant banhammer, it’s like flies to a garbage dump. Soon the comments are nothing but parentheses, portmanteaux, and cutesy conjunctions. And for me, it’s sigh, that’s why we can’t have good things around here, somebody always screws it up.

    There’s no functional difference with the latter-day criers of toxic men and unearned privilege. All always will be losers yammering about the evil Others who unjustly keep Us (the Good People) as slaves. The problem is, the two movements won’t coalesce, but each try to expand their solely-controlled territory. It would be ideal if they killed each other off early, but like scorpions they practice studied avoidance. By the time they do get to fighting, it’s too late, the whole world’s ablaze.

  • Ed December 12, 2017, 1:25 AM

    I grew up pretty neutral, although derogatory comments were more frequent than anything complimentary, but not commonplace. Blue collar folks tend not to have time for gratuitous hate. Later I worked with Jews, for Jews, and the best battalion commander I served under was Jewish. My admiration grew as I was exposed to them. Eventually I decided this antisemitism thing was simple envy. That’s an oversimplification, but it’s a good place to start trying to sort out the problem.

    The rest of it I leave to those with more time on their hands than I have for chasing this stuff. It’s pretty easy to sort out the bigots and frauds on any side of a dispute. I just walk away. Often I’ve found the best way to get the last word in is over your shoulder.

  • Suburbanbanshee December 12, 2017, 6:49 AM

    There’s hardly an anti-Jewish comment or urban legend that hasn’t been deployed against Christians, either by pagans in the Roman Empire (and elsewhere), or by Muslims in Islamic countries.

    So anybody Christian who complains about the Joooos is just trying to persecute himself.

  • pbird December 12, 2017, 11:31 AM

    Its a religious thing. GOD told the Jews to demonstrate the One GOD to the world. Then he told Jesus to demonstrate GOD within Judaism. Personally.
    This is intolerable to the spirit of the world. It must be destroyed.

    A semite is a descendant of Shem, one of Noah’s three sons.
    Ishmael (as the protoArab), Abram’s first son would then also be semitic.
    Thus semitic is so vague a term as to be non-sensical – a perfect word weapon.

    Further, it is interesting to note that the vast majority of “jews” in the world are Ashkanazi, descendants of Noah’s son Japheth – most certainly then NOT semitic – or descendants of Abraham for that matter.

    As the only race and religion to have their own country which GOD told them to inhabit, it is curious that more Jews live OUTSIDE Israel than within.

    It seems that “anti-semitic” actually means a person jews dislike.

  • pbird December 13, 2017, 4:27 PM

    itor, just because you can form a sentence that makes internal sense, it doesn’t mean it makes sense.

  • Suburbanbanshee December 14, 2017, 7:11 AM

    For the curious, the best estimate of population in the Roman Empire during the First Century was:
    4 million to 5 million.

    So, taking the larger figure, you’re saying that:

    1. From circa AD 33 to AD 100, the Christian population grew to the point where it constituted 10% of the population of the Roman Empire. (There was rapid growth and conversion, but not that rapid.)

    2. In the First Century, the Jooooos killed 10% of the population of the Roman Empire.

    3. Which means that Jooooos must have constituted… oh, 20% of the Imperial population? Which means that 30% or so of the Roman Empire was monotheist in the First Century! Yay!

    So yes, somebody’s counting.

    A fascinating study of the situation is found in Henry Ford’s “The international Jew”
    (available as PDF); those bereft of reading comprehension will be stymied perhaps by the lack of pictures.

    The book is especially interesting as it was written between the wars, and prior to the UN shenanigans, yet after the bolshevik (jewish) revolution in Russia, and after the creation of the Feral Reserve & IRS.
    Worthwhile read, longish @ 600+ pages.

  • Harry October 29, 2018, 11:58 AM

    I hear that we Jews control the media, the world’s governments, and even the world’s climate, so chances are that we also wrote “The International Jew” and just stamped Henry Ford’s name on it – just to fuck with you and people like you. I’m not saying we did or we didn’t, just that we could have. You will never know though, will you? Believe it or not, world domination does get boring sometimes and we do need to entertain ourselves now and then. We used to use Hollywood to for entertainment, but even we had to give up on that bastion of lunacy. So instead we either do or don’t print things like Henry Ford’s alleged book, first published in The Dearborn Independent (which might also have been ours.)

  • Howard Nelson October 29, 2018, 3:07 PM

    If about the hater, Heinrich Heine had it about right, “Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid.”
    Pain caused by a hurtful encounter, generalized, misapplied to a group, becomes an enslaving prejudice. The enslaved, seeking ego relief, seeks to bully, dominate others.
    The deliberate miscreant should be pitied and correctively, appropriately punished. Meantime, teach your children well.

  • GoneWithTheWind October 29, 2018, 3:59 PM

    There really isn’t anything wrong with disliking Jews, Christians, agnostics, blacks, whites, Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, etc. It is human nature. “Hating” is a lot stronger but in a free society I guess you can hate too. Acting out on your feelings is where it becomes wrong/criminal. IMH it is just as wrong for a Christian to shot a Christian as it would be for them to shot a Jew or vice versa. I disagree with the laws that apply additional punishment for a hate crime especially because the “hate” in the hate crime is narrowly focused on particular groups and not applied to others.

    I grew up in a very diverse neighborhood and over 65 years ago my best friend was Jewish. Walking home with him he got dressed down by his mother for having a friend that was Christian and after that we couldn’t be friends. I experienced similar things with Italian, Greek, Polish, and Irish (because my last name defines me as English). But it wasn’t “hate” it was often suspicion or unfamiliararity or biases carried over from the old country or disagreements from decades or centuries ago where the reasons were forgotten but the dislike was not. It is the way of the world and won’t likely change. Don’t try to punish people’s beliefs, try to change them if you think they are wrong. Ignore them if you can’t change them. But if we start punishing people for what is often poorly defined or undefinable or worse defined by the very people who hate you then we will lose our freedom.

    I have many Hispanic friends and have known a handful of Hispanics who didn’t like me because I’m white. Who cares if a few people don’t like you. I have known people who didn’t like me because I was tall or good looking (seriously!). Ignore them and don’t let it affect your relationships with friends and family. But don’t seek to punish them for what they think or believe.

  • Anderson October 29, 2018, 6:23 PM

    “Virus” is an apt description. There is no treatment for it. It just runs its course.

    One thing I have noticed, though, in my meager 53 years on earth: the words “I will bless those that bless you, and curse those that curse you” is an inexplicable, yet undeniable reality. Doubt it at your own peril.

    @ Anderson
    “I will bless those that bless you, and curse those that curse you”

    Do note that this is GOD speaking to Abraham; and Abraham only. It is singular. It extends no further than Abraham. Please, consider – what is a blessing? What is a curse? These are SPIRITUAL in nature, to invoke either the wrath of GOD or his munificence.

    To those claiming it extends to Israel, the nation which GOD evicted the hebrews from, what is the evidence anything is required? It is nothing but to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. What – we must send material “blessings”? Do you send a check monthly to Israel? If not, why?

    “This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States)… this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”
