Acclaimed director Steven Spielberg admitted he was “wrong” to think as a child that anti-Semitism “was fading,” telling Harvard’s graduating class that President Barack Obama was right when he warned that “anti-Semitism is on the rise.”
Spielberg, whose 99-year-old father Arnold sat in one of the first rows at his address before the Ivy League university’s class of 2016, told the graduates Thursday that the world “is full of monsters” espousing “racism, homophobia, ethnic hatred, class hatred” and “religious hatred.” The Oscar winner also offered veiled criticism of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, known for his anti-migrant rhetoric.
“We are a nation of immigrants — at least for now,” Spielberg said, and urged the graduates to vote in the upcoming election. “As a kid, I was bullied — for being Jewish,” Spielberg recalled in his speech.
“This was upsetting, but compared to what my parents and grandparents had faced, it felt tame. Because we truly believed that anti-Semitism was fading. And we were wrong. Over the last two years, nearly 20,000 Jews have left Europe to find higher ground. And earlier this year, I was at the Israeli embassy when President Obama stated the sad truth. He said: ‘We must confront the reality that around the world, anti-Semitism is on the rise. We cannot deny it.’”Source
Note the contemptuous phrasing "higher ground". There is a lot of anti-Europeanism in Spielberg's films. I should make a post about that some time. But this is a good example of Jews casually slandering the people they live among. Jews leave the countries they live in for all kinds of reasons that have nothing to do with pogroms or antisemitism. Many of them leaving Europe currently are coming from Ukraine. They are fleeing a civil war, not antisemitism. Europe has been experiencing an economic crisis. Many Jews leave for that reason. This could be an interpreted as a sign of Jewish disloyalty. As soon as a country experiences difficulties, the Jews are off somewhere else. They have no deep-rooted commitment to the places they live in. It is perfectly reasonable and moral for any people, living in its ancestral home, to be suspicious of these Oriental nomads for that reason alone. But through the alchemy of "antisemitism" rhetoric, Jewish betrayal of the countries they only recently claimed to be loyal to is excused away in a casual calumniation of the goyim.
