I presented a question at the JPride booth at the “Twin Cities Pride Festival” with whom a number of local Jewish communal organizations collaborate .
A male couple goes to a kosher caterer who is an Orthodox Jew. The same sex couple wants the caterer to cater their wedding. The Orthodox Jewish owner says that he will not participate in such behavior, for it is treif. The same sex couple file a complaint with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights who subsequently finds for the couple, a court order is issued, however, the Jewish caterer refuses.
I then asked: Who would you side with, the same sex couple or the Jewish caterer? Would you be willing to sent the Jew to jail? The answer from one of the women was to side with the same sex couple and the Jewish caterer should go to jail. After her egregious statement, I – a yarmulke wearing Jew – told to the woman she is the kind of Jew that would send me to a camp.
Hers is the behavior of a kapo.
Since they are representing JPride, and the these Jewish organizations collaborate with JPride, is this their official position as well? I sent emails – redacted here – to the JCRC, Sabes JCC, and the Minneapolis Federation. Knowing the JCRC issued a statement against the constitutional amendment in Minnesota to preserve normal marriage – in effect abrogating normative Jewish moral standards – I wonder what their response will be.
I presented the same question to the Libertarian Party. Keegan Iversen, the Libertarian Party candidate for State Auditor, answered my question: the Jewish caterer is IIRC an asshole and a bigot for not complying with the wishes of the customer. I was taken aback by the accusation of Mr. Iversen towards the hypothetical Jewish caterer. It turns out that one of his relatives is a homosexual. I responded that I want to know the position of the LP, not his own personal opinion. It is the apparent position of the LP that both parties are assholes: the religious Jew who refused to cater and the complainant who knew the caterer would refuse. I would have reminded the designee of the Libertarian Party that he espoused bigotry against Jews, and if Libertarians are – in theory, anyway – such strident constitutionalists and lovers of freedom, the Minnesota Constitution  is very clear on the rights of the Jewish caterer:
The right of every man to worship [G-d] according to the dictates of his own conscience shall never be infringed; nor shall any man be compelled to attend … or support any place of worship, or to maintain any religious … ministry, against his consent; nor shall any control of or interference with the rights of conscience be permitted …
The openly genocidal, eliminationist, Jew hating filth at the Anti War Committee were there, this time with not much of a table. Their literature spoke to their ongoing support for jihadists and blood libels. Nothing new there. I didn’t argue with them this time. There’s no point.
Christians from a consortium of churches were giving away corn and water with New Testament verses printed on the labels in front of First Baptist on Hennepin Avenue – as long as you sat at a table and talked to the volunteer evangelists. I did not eat the corn or drink the water.
Somalis were nowhere to be seen. They refused to take part in such kufr and shirk (as the case may be) which cannot be said for Keith Ellison. Also present to pay homage were Amy Kloubuchar, Al Franken (when I said hello to him, I addressed him as “Stuart” and “Mr. Smalley”), Betty McCollum, Raymond Rybak, and Matt Entenza – all of whom were in the parade or working the crowd.
Aside from the acceptance of the nihilism and anti-Semitism of Queers on Parade, it’s the Jewish communal organizations that allege to represent all Jews in Minnesota that are a serious problem. They are accountable to the entirety of Minnesota Jews, not just the Jewish Auxiliary of the DFL Party . I sent emails to Sabes JCC (where I contributed money through payroll deduction), Minnesota JCRC, and the Minneapolis Federation, with no response.

The Metropolitan Opera has championed the work of Rev. Thomas Dixon Jr, one of America’s famous melodramatic authors. This will be the second of his operas that the Met has presented over the last seven seasons: the first being the Leopard’s Spots: A Romance of the White Man’s Burden, 1865-1900. The Met is committed to presenting the finest works across the operatic repertory, as well as increasing the accessibility and relevance of the art form.
The Birth of a Nation is an opera about a terrible historical period which has become part of a pattern of violence that in the ensuing decades continues to repeat itself. Rev. Dixon has said that in writing the opera he tried to understand the Klansmen and their motivations, and to look for humanity in the Klansmen, as well as in their Negro victims. Tom Morris, the director of the Met’s new production, believes that the opera’s most important contribution is in providing an opportunity for the audience to wrestle with the almost unanswerable questions that arise from this seemingly endless conflict.
Since this opera dramatizes horrific acts of violence, the Met acknowledges that some members of its audience may disagree with the decision to present this work. However, the Met believes that in staging it, audiences are being given the opportunity to hear one of the best operas of the late 20th century.
Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us. We appreciate your support of the Met.

My suggestion for the Jews at colleges and universities (actually, everywhere) is the same as what the Jews of medieval Europe found in one city: that when the besieged Jews were taught boxing, the Jew haters stopped attacking Jews.
1. Form a Krav Maga club, off campus, Jews only. Call it “Society of Hebrew Krav Maga” or some such title. Incorporate it as a fraternal society. The college will have nothing to do with it, therefore, non-discrimination policies do not apply. Have professional instructors teach. Advertise it, on campus and off campus. Then advertise it, again, and again and again. Let the bastards know that Jews are learning to defend themselves.
2. Form a Rifle and Pistol club, off campus, Jews only. Call it the “Society of Hebrew Marksmen” or some other appropriate title. Again, incorporate it as a fraternal society so there is no question as who can join: Jews only. Get the NRA, NSSF, former IDF, certified instructors for rifle, shotgun, pistol, revolver, concealed carry. Advertise the Society, on campus and off campus. Then advertise it, again, and again and again. The shkutz will be very aware that Jews may be armed and are trained to use force in their own defense.
3. There will be howls of indignation. Respond to the Jew hating bastards: Jews have a right of self-defense and the subject is not open to debate.
4. Lawfare. They want to use the ICC? They want to claim they are for Peace and Justice? They want to discriminate again businesses based upon national origin? Fine. Use the Human Rights statutes to their maximum effect. File a complaint with the City, County, or State human rights agency as appropriate, against any and all actors, individually, by name, whether or not they acted in concert. If the statute allows, file for solicitation to commit, attempt to commit, conspiracy to commit, actual commission – all against an individual, then file against groups of individuals acting in concert. Go pro bono or get some Jewish lawyers to help. Cause them as much pain as legally possible. Bury them under so much legal tsuris they beg for mercy.
The Jew haters will perform a cost-benefit analysis. When the cost outweighs the benefit, they will cease.
I sent an email to Marion Greene, DFL candidate for District 3 Hennepin County Commissioner:
I previously supported you when you were running for elective office, however, your statement on a “Sanctuary County Ordinance” has caused me to reconsider . A county government cannot disregard statutory law of the United States including Title 8, Immigration. It would be a violation of your sworn oath of office as a Hennepin County official  to allow violators of United States law to roam at large within the county. A political subdivision of Minnesota does not have the authority nor the statutory jurisdiction to enact a de facto amnesty to immigration lawbreakers .
In addition to the aforementioned restrictions on your power as a Hennepin County Commissioner, passing such a law will subject you, any Commissioner who votes for a “Sanctuary County Ordinance” and the County itself to vicarious liability and prosecution for violation of sections of Title 8 of the United States Code , some of which are felonies.
Because of the foregoing, I cannot support you for Hennepin County Commissioner because of your statement on immigration.
 “I want to see Hennepin County become a “sanctuary” county – a place where people can live, work and play without county inquiry into one’s immigration status”. Retrieved 25 April 2014, County Law enforcement, http://www.mariongreene.org/issues/
 “Every person elected or appointed to any other public office, including every official commissioner…shall take and subscribe the oath defined in the Constitution of the state of Minnesota, article V, section 6”. Minnesota Statutes 358.05, Oath of Office. “Each officer…shall take an oath or affirmation to support the constitution of the United States and of this state and to discharge faithfully the duties of his office to the best of his judgment and ability”. Minnesota Constitution, Article V, Section 6, Oath of office of state officers. Federal law is superior to state law when enacted pursuant to the Federal Constitution. United States Constitution, Article VI, clause 2, in part.
 A first offense of illegally entering the United States is a misdemeanor, subsequent offenses are felonies. United States Code, Title 8, Section 1325, subdivision(a)(1)-(3) inclusive; “Improper entry by alien”. The county would be liable for violation of 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii)-(v) inclusive (Harboring certain aliens). The proposed “Sanctuary County Ordinance” would hold the County liable for soliciting officers and employees of the Hennepin County to violate relevant parts of 8 USC 1324. Two or more officers or employees, of the County, acting in concert, could be subject to charges of conspiracy to commit a violation of the United States Code.
That’s too bad. Marion Greene – though she is a prog – would be electable if she would drop that meshugah idea that people who break our laws should be rewarded. That being said, I’m no fan of Anne “fight for social justice and ending disparities” Mavity, either, because she too is a prog.
Update: I wrote Anne Mavity and asked her if she would support a “Sanctuary County Ordinance”. She replied that she would. I replied that I cannot support her for election.
That makes it a write in for None Of The Above.
