As I recently mentioned, I’m strongly considering not participating in NaNoWriMo, either the big event in November or the camp months in April and July, because of the disgusting antisemitism and wokery embraced by their current leadership in Berkeley. However, I wouldn’t delete my profile, since I’m proud of writing almost a million and a half words since I began participating.
And if these woke loons return to their senses, of course I’d start participating again. Hope springs eternal that all these fools will finally reach peak woke within the next decade and look back in embarrassment at the days they put freaking pronouns in their screen names and pretended they gave a damn about things like Native American history and supporting Black-owned businesses.
The clowns in charge had a long blog post bashing Israel’s right to exist and defend itself against terrorism, and cheering on how the Palestinians refused the chance for statehood at least eight times because they weren’t given the entirety of the country and a Judenrein (Jew-free) land.
Please explain how it’s not antisemitism to destroy the world’s one and only Jewish majority country, in the very place our ethnoreligious tribe is indigenous to and has had a continuous presence in for thousands of years. There’s so much archaeological and historical evidence proving our connection to the land! The Bible mentions it over and over again, and our prayers are full of longing to return to Israel and someday have a Third Temple (which I envision as a universal house of prayer for all peoples).
Where do you propose the seven and a half million Jews living in Israel (half of the world’s Jewish population!) would go if it became the 51st majority Muslim country? And what about the sizable Christian minority? Do you realize how unsafe it is to be Jewish or Christian in most other countries in the Middle East? That 850,000 Jews were ethnically cleansed from the Middle East and North Africa after 1948 and have nowhere else to go?
You’re advocating for genocide, since these people would be killed or severely persecuted if they returned to countries like Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Iraq.
NaNo doesn’t support the five chapters in Israel, since they think the country is illegitimate, colonialist, racist, committing genocide, all the usual disgusting antisemitic slanders and Holocaust inversion taken straight from the USSR’s playbook. Soviet leadership realized it was no longer socially acceptable to openly hate and persecute people for their religion or ethnicity, so they began attacking us for our country, under the guise of social justice.
Indeed, many of these contemporary clowns claim to be Communists.
I’m still angry at the former virtual friend who soft-blocked me on Instagram in May because I was sharing so many stories calling out antisemitism and defending Israel’s right to defend itself against terrorism. She had the naked audacity to say the firing of over 4,000 rockets wasn’t a conflict, thought reading a freaking CNN guide made her an expert on a complex geopolitical conflict, and trotted out the old canard “I’m not antisemitic, just anti-Zionist.” What a vile, vile person she turned out to be, after seven years of what I thought was friendship.
She’s gone full woke too, espousing many other ridiculous or repugnant positions she clearly hasn’t fully researched from unbiased sources, so it’s no loss.
I’ll be going into the subject of antisemitism in much further detail in future posts.
NaNo brass also gleefully ousted some municipal liaisons (the heads of local chapters) for being insufficiently woke, particularly regarding the dangerous, anti-scientific concept of self-identification (i.e., legally regarding people as the opposite sex based just on their say-so, which is, among many other things, destroying women’s sports and making women unsafe in prisons and shelters for survivors of domestic violence and rape). This is so creepy and sinister, straight out of a Maoist struggle session.
They also had some mea culpa lamenting how their leadership isn’t a more diverse Rainbow Tribe, full of virtue-signalling woke word salad. Needless to say, they support CRT.
I dare these fools to go to a working-class mill town and announce their pronouns as she/they or zir/zem and say they’re lithromantic skoliosexual greysexual moongender, promote prostitution as a fun, empowering career no different than flipping burgers, demand everyone check their privilege, and call them bigots for understanding biological sex is grounded in material reality.
I am so disgusted at how NaNo is taking political sides and promoting woke groupthink.
