Why I hate movies about Jews

The suffering Jew is the property of the rescuing goyim; the successful Jew is not.

I don't care to watch movies about Jews - not those made by non-Jews and leftist Jews, anyway. By all accounts, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is supposed to be a good movie. But I would be more interested in a gormless shoot-em-up movie with Sly or Arnie. Why? Because the interest in these movies about Jews is based on an interest in their story of destitution, destruction and humiliation. Interesting, don't you think? We have countless movies about America's greatness. We have movies about the conquests and victories of Nelson and Napoleon and Columbus. So, why can I not think of too many movies depicting Jews (and Israelis) as good, successful, heroic - in short, in a positive light? Because it does not serve the function of the narrative of the Jew in the last six or seven decades. Once the narrative of weakness, despair - and dependence upon the goodness of goyim - is replaced with success, strength and independence, many goyim lose interest. This is because it is about ownership: The suffering Jew is the property of the rescuing goyim; the successful Jew is not. Moreover, once the dependent party becomes independent of his benefactors, we can readily see the consequence: How dare you! A more individualized example of that is the way in which white leftists in the US cannot stomach it when blacks vote conservative. Just look at the treatment of Supreme Court Justic Clarence Thomas by columnist Maureen Dowd. Following the Grutter vs. Bollinger affirmative action case in 2003, Dowd believed that Thomas's dissent was a "clinical study of a man who has been driven barking mad by the beneficial treatment that he received." "How dare Thomas," so goes the logic, "who gained so much from the radical white left in the US, now turn his back and be independent and proud of his own abilities!" RETURNING TO Israel, those who are "barking mad" are those who supported Israel until 1967 - June 10, 1967, to be precise. Because, on that day, for the first time since biblical times, the Jews won. On June 10 1967, the Jews ceased to be life's perpetual losers. And, so, the Jews did not need the goyim and their protection. And, suddenly, nobody held power over the Jews of Israel. While there is no doubt in my mind that Oskar Schindler was a great, great man, and the American and British soldiers who eventually freed those remaining Jews during World War II were great, great men, there is something evident in many goyim's communal interest in the Holocaust. And that is pride: Many goyim watch these movies, not out of compassion, but out of self-congratulatory sentiment. Alas, the Jews of the Holocaust are used - used for their juxtaposing of the Nazis and fascists for being as evil as we see them. Or did the double-standards not occur to you - of how those Jews butchered by the Soviets and the Romanians and the Poles and the Czechoslovaks are rarely mentioned in leftist-dominated visual media, but the suffering of those Jews butchered by the Nazis and fascists is always on our screens? So, while we have movies about the Alamo, the Somme, Trafalgar, Pearl Harbor and so on, why is it that we do not have - not in any popular sense, at least - a movie about the Six Day War? Again, because the Jews won. And what happens when they win? Just watch Munich from the point of view of how Jews are depicted as they win. Cold, evil, cowardly, self-doubting. Remember: The Jew can never be allowed to win. The writer is a clinical psychologist in training based in Ireland.
