Sowel Chapter 2 are Jews Generic . Beakerkin in Walmart Aisle 2

Thomas Sowell points out that Jews are the most familiar but not the only middleman minority. Middlemen minorities perform a retail function and are resented by the masses. The perception is that they have created unjust wealth via little or no work.

Other examples are the local Korean grocer in the USA. The entire family works in the store often for seven days a week. Some of the locals here are hostile to my friends Sam and Omar from Pakistan . However the four brothers work seven days a week
with one brother on vacation. The myth is that a local has been prevented from owning a business by a sucsessful immigrant. This is not true as if you would like to start a business having a total family comitment is a big help. Most likely family members would not accept the grueling conditions.

Armenians and other middle eastern Christians and Jews filled these roles under Islamic oppression. Thus the fact that Jews and Christians were enslaved and fleeced via dhimmi laws is conveniently forgotten by the PC crowd. The PC crowd likes to ignore Copts, Assyrians and Zoroastrians as they do not fit their fake indigenous people framework.

Ibos and the Chinese of Indonesia also fill these roles in other societies. My friend Win can relate the brutal treatment of Chinese and Christians in Indonesia.The PC commie crowd calls Win a liar. They also do the same when Middle Eastern Christians, Jews or Hindus step forward. They also are fond of telling Cuban emigres how great life was in Cuba. I have seen Soviet Emigres look with rage at Commie tales of the great Soviet Union. My personal favorite as an old man beat the tar out of a NYC Commie who praised the killing of Kulaks. The persons father was a Kulak and the police took their time. They did not arrest the old man and I could not stop laughing. The person never said the word Kulak again.

Westerners tend to think of India as homogenous but there are several groups of middle men minorities. Parsees , Gujaratis and Sikhs are some of the groups listed.
Sikhs are not Muslims and have no connection to the colonial and human rights abuses that followed Islamic history. There are many Christians in India as well and I have several friends in the Assyrian Christian community. Assyrians often have Jewish sounding names and anti semites like Robert Lindsay assume they are Jewish. Robert Lindsay has also called Irishman John Loftus Jewish much to the bewilderment of regular readers. 167 has called Richard Poe a hellbound Zionista much to the bewilderment of Poe who seldom writes about Israel. Poe is a practicing Catholic but leftwing rednecks have an odd obsession with the 1% rule with Jews.

Lebanese Christians fill the middle man roles in Africa . The Indians of Uganda were expelled by the great humanitarian Idi Amin. The Indians were often Muslims themselves and Irsad Manji's family was one of them. Leftist also ignore human rights abuses in Africa such as the expulsion of Indians in Uganda or Zimbabwe's theft of White Farms, Subsequent famine and brutal treatment of gays. Leftist rail about crime in the USA butcry racism if one points to the high rates in South Africa.
Aparthied was evil but people did not starve in Rhodesia until Marx and Lennin were imported by Mugabbe.

This post will continue tommorow. Oriana Falaci's book is in and we may put Sowell on hold.

Beamish in 08, Ducky to replace Chomsky at MIT nobody notices because Noam is illucid and never made sense just like the Duck and 167 still trying to figure a way to spin his Communism into liberterianism. Use of pot does not make one a Liberterian.

Beak, can your friend recount the wholesale slaughter of a half a million communists under Sakarno? Why don't you ask him.

WomanHonorThyself said...

Gr8 research dude..high fiver.

beakerkin said...

Womanhonorthyself Sowell is a genius. I have Falaci's new book and it will go into serialization.
You might not see this book in stores for a while.

Ducky I have discussed that part of the story with Win . Win readily admits there were plenty of Commies but it was used as a pretext for a larger ethnocide. Win's family never was Communist unlike you. This did not matter to crazed Jihadis who killed, raped and slaughtered and performed forced conversions. Forced conversions have little to do with Communism.

Now speaking about Communism I am waiting for the first annual Commie round up and rodeo in NYC.
We place some Che T shirts on the ground and lasso anyone who picks them up. We then brand the hammer and sickle on their posterior and off to Gitmo.

Mr. Ducky said...

Point is Beak, that they rounded up over half a million people and slaughtered them, asshole.

beakerkin said...

Point is that few of the Chinese were Communist. It was your basic jihad in the pretext of a Cold War.

Forced Conversions and rape had little to do with Communism. Killing actual Communists in a Civil war is no loss. The pretext was jihad and Christians and Chinese were targeted. Few of the Chinese were actual Communists

Jason_Pappas said...

Time to remember Ari Halberstam. Never forget.

beakerkin said...

I remember Halberstam and have discussed the case here. People like 167 and the Chemist forget that Halberstam was killed in NYC because he was a Jew. The explanation was road rage. Mentioning this crime makes 167 and Ducky cry racism.

American Crusader said...

"Mr. Ducky said...Point is Beak, that they rounded up over half a million people and slaughtered them, asshole."

lmao..Obviously a nerve was struck.

Mr. Ducky said...

Well I suppose a nerve was struck. Beak seems to feel that he can be selective about the tragedies and slaughter in human history and assign them all to either "the left" or "islam".

Now that kind of jejune stupidity is what I expect from the right but the fool becomes a pain in the ass when he refuses to learn and can't acquire a better grasp of history.

In Beaks case it is because he is a professional jew and believes that a single people can be considered a touchstone for the history of humanity and its tragedies.

Ducky

Thank you once again for demonstrating the anti semitism on the far left. Since I am a "professional Jew" this no doubt makes Jewish Communists novices . No when one is a Communist one is a traitor. I shed no tears over their demise.

However this was not the case in Indonesia. Forced conversions and rape display Jihadic overtones.

This may have been termed a Cold War issue but it was a mistake it was slaughter via Jihad.

Duck ever notice how people will slaughter to avoid Marxism. Then the Marxist have to slaughter to maintain power if they win. Marxism
is the greatest predictor of starvation and democide. Jihadism is a close second and even Hillary denounced Jihad.

Kyle said...

Ducky, guess who killed the most communists? Joseph Stalin!, (well I guess he wasn't all bad).

elijah said...

Well not the jews i have worked for, if anything too much work..
I have seen the stress writ large on their faces as they deal with clients every day.{architects, builders etc.}

My personal favorite as an old man beat the tar out of a NYC Commie who praised the killing of Kulaks. The persons father was a Kulak and the police took their time.
Classic...beat the tar out of, I haven't heard that term in a while {Kulak}...good for him...for beating the tar out of him that is.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Many history books have been written throughout time. Not one has captured evidence that leftists are capable of rational thought.

Sakarno himself was a communist. Kyle makes a good point about Stalin killing the most "communists." Leftists are not above killing each other.

Look at Hitler and Stalin.

MissingLink said...

but it was used as a pretext for a larger ethnocide...

In fact most of the people killed under during this riots had nothing to do with communists.
You're correct Beak it was Jihad but in many cases just tribal vendettas and plain pillage.

Leftists are not above killing each other.
Look at Hitler and Stalin.


You have to, or otherwise the revolution goes down the drain.
People get attached to their positions, make private networks, find ways of making illegal profits, place their own friends in strategic places, make alliances with other lesser emirs and so slowly but surely the party leadership loses some of its power and control over the administration and society.
Purges are necessary in any totalitarian system.
Interesting point you made about the dhimmis in connection with: "The perception is that they have created unjust wealth via little or no work".
Exactly - everybody around envies them and hates them for a NOBLE reason.
They exist but may be exterminated at any later more convenient time.
Usually the dhimmis would have pay for their existence very much the same as small family business under some of the communist regimes.
They also paid off local officials, administration, law enforcement etc.
Whenever there were any drastic changes at the top and the local authorities had to "go" the dhimmis would loser their “insurance cove” and thhe mob would have a go at the ugly "profiteers".

Freedomnow said...

Wow! Ducky calls Beak a professional Jew! Thats all you need to silence or ridicule someone is to call them a Jew... Nice.

Whats next, are you gonna call him a Jew Boy?

Anyways, what does the oppression of Communists in Indonesia have to do with the Blog post, "Sowel Chapter 2 are Jews Generic . Beakerkin in Walmart Aisle 2"?

Beak never said that Communists have never been persecuted for being Communists. If he made that claim in this post then that info would be relevant.

The problem with Leftists is that they continually take things out of context.

If you read the post with any comprehension you would realize that the point is that Jews are not the only "middleman minorities" in the world. Communists are fundamentally opposed to such capitalistic activities and would rarely (if ever) be defined under such a label.

Is this too rational for you?

(Beak, We are all Professional Jews. Keep the faith.)

elijah said...

You do enough reading the barbarism makes you want to vomit..
One of the worst quotes i read was of a german "general, colonel..whatever, passing by a field, and the gas from the dead bodies exploding out of the grass, and him responding, "that was the village of...{jewish village}
Or Stalin's boys shooting polish soldiers [officers mostly] in the back of the head through a sliding slot in a door..I forget the number but it was substantial.
Apparently one or both of the russians who did the shooting shot themselves eventually.
No doubt...
Recently I read that Stalin may have been a schizophrenic, no doubt of the paranoid variety...
A miracle he lasted as long as he did...no?

kev said...

Daffy keeps dredging up the same bullshit, over and over, trying to defend communism. Then, like a good little liberal, when he gets no traction, he again resorts to name-calling. We should have listened to Patton.

The term professional Jew is a term from Norm Finklestein a professional crank who has some odd Holocaust theories.

Warren said...

You'll have to forgive the duck. He always resorts to slurs after he makes an idiot of himself.

Of course, it doesn't leave him much time for anything else.

Mr. Ducky said...

Hey warren, how you doing? Still sucking up those nanny state benefits because you couldn't cut it in the private sector?

Go have a chaw of Skoal.

beakerkin said...

Warren does work in the private sector. Now you live in a Commie safe house in MA. Talk loudly to the plants that is where the government puts the bugs.

Freedomnow said...

Pathetic. Some people have no shame...

I guess I made my point. (rolls eyes).

Duck, I don't believe I've ever ran across anybody as invincibly ignorant as you.

I have one full time job in heavy equipment building and repair plus two part time jobs, (one semi-regular hours and the other on an emergency or as needed basis.), plus I do contract work, anything from electronic and electrical repair to courier service.

And you "work" in a commie flop house; how gratifyingly. What do you do in the flop house, clean the toilets with your head? Tell me, do you like to lord it over the winos, do you make them listen to commie agiprop before they get their soup?

BTW, Oh great, ignorant assed one, I don't use Skoal and anyone that does "dips" it. In other words; they have a dip of Skoal.

You Nazi and Commie schmucks have to learn to get your insults straight.

Now, run along and play like a good little commie, (preferably in traffic).

Did I mention that you are a boil on the butt of the proletariat?

LMAO
