Silly Jews

In a lame attempt to defend Ben Carson, Fox News contributor Keith Ablow writes:

Granted, I was not there. Granted, hindsight is 20/20. But it turns out it was a bad idea for any Jew to have turned over a gun. It was a bad idea for any Jew to have boarded a train. It was a bad idea for any Jew to have passed through a gate into a camp. It was a bad idea for any Jew to do any work at any such camp. It was a bad idea for any Jew to not attempt to crush the skull or scratch out the eyes of any Nazi who turned his back for one moment. And every bullet that would have been fired into a Nazi coming to a doorway to confiscate a gun from a Jew would have been a sacred bullet.

Silly Jews! Always surrendering their guns, boarding trains, and walking through death camp gates. When will they ever learn?

This is so fundamentally stupid and astonishingly offensive I don’t even know where to begin. And let’s, just for a moment, look at how conservatives view the minorities in their own midst in today’s America: the ones they want to round up and deposit on the other side of the border, or deny marriage rights to, or prevent from worshipping their religion the way they see fit, or deny the right to vote. What would happen if those people took up arms, crushed skulls, and scratched out eyes? I think you know where I’m headed with this.

Anyway, these people are positively certifiable.

    I posted the following on the TP site:
    Here’s the problem with Keith Albow – who I assume is Jewish by his name – and Ben Carson’s “take” on blaming the Jews for their own deaths. (Aside from the obvious, of course). The Jews who were rounded up by the Nazi in every country were confronted with men with machine guns and, often, snarling dogs. House arrests were usually done in the middle of the night when resistance was low. The roundups were done of whole families. When put on trains, they often traveled days without food and water, crammed into cattle cars and were off-loaded at the camps, again, in the middle of the night. Those who survived the ride were greeted by men with machine guns and snarling dogs. I don’t know about any of you, but putting up armed resistance at that point was futile.

    There were young Jews who fled the ghettos and set up resistance camps, but they were usually begging for arms from those who could have supplied them. And remember that the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, against the Germans, went on for a month 1943 before they were subdued and chased through the sewers. (Read “Mila 18” by Leon Uris).

    Those Jews who were kept in ghettos were starved and died from random shootings, disease, and lack of food. They were also loaded into trucks – en masse – again by men with machine guns and snarling dogs – and taken to the killing pits, where they were murdered after being forced to dig their own mass graves. These Jews didn’t die easily and for modern day pundits to claim they could have put up mass armed resistance shows a stupidity that’s simply not understandable.

    Are these two men willfully ignorant, or simply amoral?

    Ablow is a psychiatrist. Surely he could swing a professional discount for the help he sorely needs.

  4. The bigger point that they’re missing is the extent to which private gun ownership enabled the Nazis to take power in the first place. Remember, this was a party with it’s own private militia (the SA) that it was able to use to intimidate the opposition. If it weren’t for that private gun ownership, the Nazis probably wouldn’t have gotten into power in the first place. So please, tell me again about how private citizens forming their own non-government militia are going to protect us from tyranny.

    Apparently neither Ablow or Carson has read much about Kristallnacht. One Jew — not even in Germany, but in Paris — named Herschel Grynzpan decided to use his gun to fight back by shooting the German Ambassador. The result was not just the murder of hundreds of Jews in Germany and Austria, but

    Additionally, 30,000 were arrested and incarcerated in Nazi concentration camps. Jewish homes, hospitals, and schools were ransacked, as the attackers demolished buildings with sledgehammers. Over 1,000 synagogues were burned (95 in Vienna alone) and over 7,000 Jewish businesses destroyed or damaged.

    In fact, this is frequently seen as the actual beginning of the implementation of the ‘final solution.’

    • There was a tremendous amount of anti-semitism in the 1930s, globally. America wasn’t immune, either. Remember Henry Ford? The idea that the Jews of Germany could just “rise up” and were somehow weak for not doing so and brought the Holocaust on themselves is so ignorant of history and reprehensible I don’t even know where to begin. And when they say “never again” — Today we have gun shops refusing to sell to Muslims in America. I can definitely see this happening again, just not to the Jews.

    I can’t begin to respond intelligently to such a ridiculous argument. Doctors Ablow and Carson are amoral and willfully ignorant.
