PRAGER: Anti-Americanism: The New Anti-Semitism

What are the two most hated countries in the world?
America and Israel.
Who hates both America and Israel?
The left (and Islamists).
And why is that? Why does the left (not liberals, the left) hate America and Israel?
In “Why the Jews; The Reason for Antisemitism,” a book I co-authored with Rabbi Joseph Telushkin in 1983 (the latest edition was published in 2016), we compared hatred of America with hatred of Jews.
This is what we wrote. It precisely explains what is happening in America today.
“Perhaps the best way to understand the admiration and resentment elicited by the quality of Jewish life is to compare the reactions of the world to America’s quality of life. No other country has so many people seeking to move there. At the same time, no country, with the exception of Israel, is the target of so many hateful and false attacks.
“The United States, because of its success and its ideals, challenges many people throughout the world. How did America, a nation composed largely of those rejected by other societies (‘The wretched refuse of your teeming shore’ declare the words at the base of the Statue of Liberty), become the most affluent, freest, most powerful, and most influential society in the world? Americans generally attribute this success to the values of America’s founding generations (such as individual liberty, religious tolerance, Judeo-Christian morality, and secular government), to a work ethic, and to the subsequent waves of immigrants who embraced these values. Enemies of America attribute it to the country’s natural resources, just as many people attribute Jewish success to their natural resource, alleged greater innate intelligence. Others claim that through capitalist exploitation, America cheated poorer countries, paralleling charges that Jewish success has been attained through economic ‘bloodsucking.’ Still others develop an imperialist version of America’s past and present, similar to the anti-Jewish charge of a world Jewish conspiracy.
“But the United States is hardly the only society with great natural resources, and it has been the least imperialistic of the world’s powers. America’s values, not unfair resource distribution or world exploitation, have made the United States better, just as Judaism and its values, not genetic advantage or economic conspiracies, account for the quality of life led by Jews. The two people’s quality of life has provoked similar reactions — many admire them, and many resent them.”
Just like the Jews, America is hated because it is successful. For over a century, it has been the most successful country in the world — in virtually every way. If having had slavery was a real issue in the left’s anti-Americanism, the left would hate the Arab world and Latin American countries such as Brazil more than it hates the United States. While The New York Times and other left-wing institutions are preoccupied with slavery in America, they ignore — out of ideological nonconcern or out of sheer ignorance — the vastly larger number of Africans enslaved by Muslim and South American nations.
Of the more than 12 million African slaves shipped to the Western Hemisphere, only about 3% — between 306,000 and 380,000 — were sent to the United States. The other 97% were sent to the Caribbean and Brazil. And the slaves in the U.S. South lived longer and made larger families than the slaves of Latin America. Yet, the U.S. is singled out for hatred. Why? Because the left doesn’t resent Brazil. Brazil is not an object of envy.
Likewise, there is no left-wing hatred of the Arab world, which enslaved far more blacks than the North and South Americas combined did. The internationally recognized expert on African history, Senegalese anthropologist Tidiane N’Diaye, wrote: “Most people still have the so-called Transatlantic (slave) trade by Europeans into the New World in mind. But in reality the Arab-Muslim slavery was much greater. … The Arab Muslims were the most murderous of all those involved in the slave trade.” Part of that murderous treatment of African slaves involved castrating the males so they could not reproduce. And the women and girls were traded as sex slaves.
Where is the leftist anger at the Arab and Muslim world? There is, of course, none. On the contrary, the left protects the Muslim and Arab world against moral criticism.
The left hates America for its success and influence on the world, just as anti-Semites hated Jews for their success and influence on the world.
The left doesn’t hate America because it is bad. It hates America because it is good. If the left hated evil, it would love America and hate its enemies.

Former NFL star Larry Johnson posts bizarre anti-Semitic conspiracy theory on Twitter with zero repercussions
Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson posted a bizarre anti-Semitic conspiracy theory rant on Twitter and has apparently faced zero repercussions over it.
Johnson was criticizing ESPN sports commentator Max Kellerman for knocking down anti-Semitic conspiracy theories claiming Jews controlled the media and other industries.
The former NFL star implied that a "Jewish cabal" participated in human trafficking, sex trafficking, pedophilia, ritualistic child torture, perversion, human sacrifice and murder.A Racial Disparity I’m proud to be apart of... African Americans overwhelmingly underperform in the area of: Huma… https://t.co/FiDAogF0th — Larry Johnson (@Larry Johnson)1596372892.0
Kellerman, who is also Jewish, demanded that Philadelphia Eagles player DeSean Jackson explain how he spread anti-Semitic messages even after he apologized for what he posted.
"Jews do not have a plan for world domination. I have no plan for world domination. And there's no secret cabal with some plan for world domination," Kellerman said in July.
"You couldn't uplift African Americans without singling out Jews falsely for having some kind of conspiracy to keep Black people down?" Kellerman asked.
'Babylonian occult practitioners of pagan idolatry'
Johnson went on to make the claim that African-Americans were in the true lineage of the Israelites and that the Jews were not.
"Before the 'Abrahamic 'religion,' which is stupid in itself because Israelites (Shemites) aren't a religion. The Nephilim tainted line of HAM were the first Babylonian occult practitioners of pagan idolatry. AA's you are not Hamites, you're more Shemitic," he explained helpfully.
Television show host Nick Cannon made similar claims in his own anti-Semitic rant on his YouTube show. He later apologized for the comments."Adrenochrome, Pizzagate...Qanon"
Johnson also appeared to defend other conspiracy theories that have gained popularity on social media platforms.
"Just like clockwork, Anything involving Hollywood, Adrenochrome, Pizzagate, its a Right Wing, QAnon, conspiracy... This is their way of saying 'White People Crazy,'" tweeted Johnson.Just like clockwork, Anything involving Hollywood, Adrenochrome, Pizzagate, its a Right Wing, QAnon, conspiracy...… https://t.co/8hv2Yyn4Vo — Larry Johnson (@Larry Johnson)1596380584.0
"Instead of debating the proof, they label it a conspiracy and anti-Semitic," said Johnson. "It's TIRED."
Many excoriated Johnson for the bizarre conspiracy theory, including CNN's Jake Tapper who tweeted, "Larry Johnson continuing to spread his anti-Semitic garbage. What a disgrace."
Johnson previously posted a rant in August complaining about an "effeminate agenda" in the NBA and NFL that he said had to do with the "buying power of the LGBTQ community."Non-response from Twitter
TheBlaze requested a comment from Twitter but the social media company did not respond to the request.
The former running back had numerous arrests for domestic violence when he played on the Chiefs' team. In an 2017 interview, Johnson said he was battling with headaches, memory loss, and believed that his violent outbursts could be due to CTE, a devastating brain injury found in some NFL players.Here's more about Johnson's past:
