1) A semi-notable person comes out with some anti-Israel speech or act
2) Anti-Israel idiots jizz all over themselves and the rest of the internet with praise for the person
3) The person then demonstrates that they are insane and racist
4) Anti-Israel idiots are silent
The most recent example of this cycle completing is Alice Walker.
Alice Walker is the semi-notable author of The Color Purple (which, ironically, was turned into a major motion picture by none other than Steven Speilberg). Last year she announced that she would not let that book be translated into Hebrew, boycotting not just a country but an entire language. She has also stated that she believes that Israel is "worse" than the Jim Crow South, which of course was trumpeted loudly by the usual Useful Idiots in the usual forums.
So now that steps 1 and 2 have happened, like clockwork it is time for Alice Walker to say something insane and racist. And on cue...
If you don't immediately understand this rant don't waste too much energy, I'll explain it after. Here's what she said:
I have been dragging along David Icke’s monumental book: Human Race Get Off Your Knees for the last month. It has been on my lap as I sat; been propped against pillows as I laid down; followed me to bathroom and poolside; and been, in fact, a formidable companion over these past several weeks. It is a massive book, and requires complete attention. Even so, some of it is hard to grasp. I have felt sorely regretful that my science foundation is so…nil. I remember that in high school the broken microscope we inherited from the white high school (they got a science lab) did permit each of us in our large class a single glimpse of, I think it was, an enlarged cell of something. It was pretty amazing,but there it was: my introduction to something David is telling us that is really worlds away from this.
What I was remembering was how [Malcolm X] called our oppressors “blue eyed devils.” Now who could that have been? Well, we see them here in David Icke’s book as the descendants of the reptilian race that landed on our sweet planet the moment they could get a glimpse of it through the mist that used to cover it (before there was a moon). No kidding. Deep breath! Yes, before there was a moon! (Oh, I love the moon; can I keep it? Please?). Anyway, there they came, these space beings (we’re space beings too, of course, not to forget that). But they looked…. different than us. And they were.
They wanted gold and they wanted slaves to mine it for them. Now gosh, who does this remind us of? I only am asking. You do the work. Apparently their own planet needed this metal to continue its, apparently, long life. Credo Mutwa, Zulu shaman – and I am on my knees here in gratitude that he held on long enough to tell us about this – calls them the Chitauri, which has become my favorite word of all time (well, of this time that I’m learning all this): my partner and I go around saying Oh, Chitauri, whenever we get a glimpse of one or two of the Chitauri offspring, aka Illuminati bloodline families and their puppets, on the telly. It’s quite the stress reliever, just knowing what we’re looking at. And I like saying “telly” too, because it sounds so English and David Icke-esque. Truthfully our “telly” is our laptops.
What she is referring to in this barely coherent belch? The most obvious part is the "Illuminati" conspiracy theory, and general praise for David Icke, who is probably the most insane conspiracy peddler around and literally believes that the world is ruled by alien lizards. Just on the basis of the endorsement of Icke alone, Walker has revealed herself to be an insane person with no credibility,
But the other nonsense I detect, especially with the Malcolm X and "blue eyed devils" reference in the context of spaceships, is the old Nation Of Islam tale that the white man was genetically engineered 6000 years ago by an evil scientist named "Yakub" who lived on the island of Patmos. While Yakub's creation will rule on Earth for 6000 years, true black master race will come back from space in the motherships.
(Side note: I remember first reading about this tall tale of Yakub when we had to read The Autobiography of Malcolm X in high school. I thought there is no way that anyone actually believes that, but alas, they do. It was my first in a lifetime of encounters with far left anti-science lunacy.)
It is difficult to say whether Walker is explicitly endorsing the Yakub fable or simply giving it an approving nostalgic nod. Either way, and when combined with the other nonsense like the praise for David Icke and his lizard people, it certainly outs her as a deranged idiot. Which of course is what one has to be to say things like Israel is worse than the Jim Crow South.
Will she remain a hero to the anti-Israel set who couldn't praise her enough yesterday, or be dropped like a ton of bricks like they tried to do with Gilad Atzmon. Time will tell, but at this point all we have from David Harris Gershon and his fellow travelers is the customary silence.
