Ukraine's 'Jew Register' Either a Hoax or a Crude Extortion Scheme

If you saw the article earlier today or yesterday regarding, please spread this around. The outrage to the original thing was understandable, but people do need to know what is going on. 

Good to finally know the source. People weren’t sure of the source of the fliers to begin with, but Time’s claim that “the Jews of eastern Ukraine are in little danger” is bull shit considering:

Several anti-Semitic attacks, including a stabbing and the attempted torching of a synagogue, have occurred in Ukraine since the eruption in November of a revolution over the perceived pro-Russian policies of former President Viktor Yanukvych. He was ousted from power in February. [source]

and these are just some selected antisemtiic hate crimes in Ukraine that have happened within the last few months:

  • March 13, 2014 - Kiev - A rabbi was physically assaulted and taunted with anti-Semitic slurs by two unidentified individuals.
  • February 28, 2014 – Simferopol – Vandals spray painted “Death to the Jews” and swastikas on the outside of the Ner Tamid Reform Synagogue in the capital of Ukraine’s Crimean republic.  
  • February 24, 2014 – Zaporozhye – Molotov cocktails were thrown at the Giymat Rosa synagogue and community center.  No one was hurt in the nighttime attack, although the building suffered exterior cosmetic damage.  
  • January 26. 2014 – Kiev – A Jewish man returning from synagogue was assaulted by an unknown attacker. The attack was the third such incident within two weeks.

  • January 17, 2014 - Kiev - A 28 year-old Yeshiva student was beaten and stabbed by three youths as he was walking home from synagogue services. He managed to return to the synagogue where he collapsed. He was taken to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery on his foot.

  • January 11, 2014 - Kiev - An Israeli-born Hebrew teacher was followed home from synagogue services and beaten by four men. [source]


It’s also important to understand how incredibly antisemitic this act was, even if it was a form of political bullshit - the ADL basically said that it was just that awhile ago, but there was a lot of confusion around the source of the fliers and that doesn’t change how incredibly antisemitic this act was.

Basically, even though others and I stressed we weren’t sure of the sources of the flyers but that it’s an act of terrorism and violence even it came from a small group of bigots, I know that goyim are going to try to silence discussions of antisemitism in Europe and Ukraine because it turned out to not be the government. We said early on we weren’t sure as we spread information, but it’s never enough. People are going to find reason to discredit us and silence discussion of the escalating threats of antisemitism happening around the world like they always do.

basically, those assholes are manipulating the climate of antisemitism in fear that is escalating in Ukraine - don’t let the fact these guys manipulated the situation distract from the real threat of antisemitism in the area - while i’m glad it wasn’t the government (it already seemed to be from another source due to several pieces of evidence) that doesn’t mean Jews face “little danger” like Time is for some reason asserting

Edit: I apologize for using “the Ukraine” earlier - it’s offensive and I changed it to “Ukraine” without “the”: http://time.com/12597/the-ukraine-or-ukraine/

Fun Fact: In 1.10 Asylum, Dean references Jack Nicholson’s characters three times, calling him “my man Jack” twice.
"Man, electroshock, lobotomies, they did some twisted stuff to these people. Kind of like my man Jack in Cuckoo’s Nest", this is referencing Jack Nicholson’s role as Randle McMurphy in the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (based on the novel by Ken Kesey). McMurphy, a serial petty criminal who has been sentenced to a fairly short prison term, decides to have himself declared insane so he’ll be transferred to a mental institution, where he expects to serve the rest of his time in (comparative) comfort and luxury. Of course, the institution is a very bad place, and very bad things happen.
"Spirits driving them insane. Kind of like my man Jack in The Shining”, this is a reference to Nicholson’s role as Jack, a writer driven insane and homicidal by the haunted motel. He references the Shining once again when he says, “All work and no play makes Doctor Ellicot a very dull boy.”  This line refers to a scene in the movie where Jack Nicholson’s character has been supposedly writing for months. His wife has heard him, day after day, pounding away on his typewriter. Finally, when he is elsewhere, curiosity gets the better of her. She walks to the typewriter, and sees the sheet in place. Written on it are endless repetitions of the single sentence “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” She looks through the stack of papers neatly placed to the side with increasing horror; the book Jack was working on consists of only the repetitions and permutations of layout of that same sentence. Over and over, through hundreds of pages.
The number of Dean’s references to this movie throughout the series would probably lead one to believe that The Shining is one of Dean’s favorite movies.

It’s just kind of interesting how Dean references the movie version of The Shining over the years. And one wonders how he views it.

I mean, in the movie, the character Jack is the primary antagonist: going “crazy” and attacking everyone.  But in the novel it is clear the real bad guy of the story is the hotel itself, fashioning the character Jack into a weapon and manipulating his actions.

In other words, the true villain is the evil supernatural influence taking Jack’s deepest, darkest fears and twisting him into what he fears most: a dangerous and monstrous patriarch. So ultimately he, too, is a victim of the Overlook Hotel - though at the end of the novel he fights back to take control of and ultimately sacrifice himself so the others can escape.

What is interesting, is that the Frida Kahlo venerated by American feminists is a very different Frida Kahlo to the one people learn about in Mexico, in the Chicano community. In her country, she is recognized as an important artist and a key figure in revolutionary politics of early 20th century Mexico. Her communist affiliations are made very clear. Her relationship with Trotsky is underscored. All her political activities with Diego Rivera are constantly emphasized. The connection between her art and her politics is always made. When Chicana artists became interested in Frida Kahlo in the ‘70s and started organizing homages, they made the connection between her artistic project and theirs because they too were searching for an aesthetic compliment to a political view that was radical and emancipatory. But when the Euro-American feminists latch onto Frida Kahlo in the early ‘80s and when the American mainstream caught on to her, she was transformed into a figure of suffering. I am very critical of that form of appropriation.

Donetsk leaflet: Jews must register or face deportation

I’m scared of what would happen after they register…

I googled it. Multiple news sources are covering this. This is actually happening. This is terrifying.

My first thought is that this would lead to something bigger. I don’t know if it would be on the scale of the Holocaust, but registering of Jews was an early part of it.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.

Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.

Scarleteen is invaluable.

And Scarleteen needs your help.

During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.

This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 

This is devastating.

If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.

Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.

And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.
