I am going to court

I have a court appointment in one week on Monday the 28th and my guess is that I should shut the fuck up for the moment.

But, in truth, I have never been very good at taking my own advice.

Possible Restraining Order (Updated)

Reem Assil has filed a request for a restraining order against me.

The initial request was denied but it's going before a judge in about a week, or so.

Update:

Also, you guys should know that her lawyers and others are monitoring this site.

The form that I received reads CH-109, TRO DENIED - HEARING ON ORDER PENDING.

This hearing will be on 8/28/17.

But the vast majority of the paperwork that I received is comprised of blog posts from here... including your comments.

So, the thing of it is, Assil's lawyers are going thru this material.

Good for them.

The coppers got nothin' on me, man.

This is a video shot by a friendly person but it gives people some sense of what this tiny protest was like.



I am the guy who appears at the 3:02 mark crying out that Reem's antisemitic restaurant is "normalizing Jew hatred."

I am not a victim

Michael Lumish

I'm trying to figure out just what irks me about this whole "Jews are not white" thing with the attendant MENA question in the States.

I think that what it is is the suspicion that we're trying to join the victimhood club.

Black people are victims. Women are victims. Muslims are victims. Gay people are victims.

Fuck that.

I have no desire in the least to join the victimhood club.

They don't want us on their team, to begin with, and I would not want to wear that t-shirt anyway.

Let other people go be victims.

Tell me why I am wrong.

American Racism

Michael Lumish

I don't want to get maudlin, but this is a very sad moment.

When I look at the "legacy press" it is practically all racism all the time, now.

What pisses me off more than anything else, tho, is the fact that between Martin Luther King, Jr. and Barack Obama the United States did a terrific job of moving beyond the kind of toxic racism that gave us Jim Crow and the Klan.

All that was basically dead.

Everyone knew that there were some hard-core white supremacist types still out there. When I was growing up they seemed to have congregated in the Pacific Northwest.

But we were so beyond all of this.

I gotta tell ya, I was damn proud to vote for Barack Obama in 2008.

It seemed to me, and millions of other Americans, that we were finally, seriously, moving beyond the old crusty racism of the past.

And the thing of it is, we were.

The United States, along with West, more generally, is actually the least racist part of the planet but Americans are so insulated and egotistical that they cannot see it.

The question that is foremost in my mind is the degree to which this racism was just there and to what extent was it politically constructed?
