Lenin's ancestry? Who cares?

Tuesday Jun 14th, 2011 3:14 PM

as we wish to be?

The Net
swarms with Hebraphobes (Jew-haters).
On the right,
AND on the left.
....
Now let them realize that Lenin
was partly Jewish.
...
He also had Tatar (Mongol?) ancestry
[which he was proud of];
so he's still popular in Mongolia.
....
Not that his ancestry really matters.
....
Hating Jews is no better,
and no worse,
than hating Mongols, Russians, Africans, Europeans,
South Asians, Turks, Arabs. Kurds......
...
We leftists say we despise racism;
yet it creeps into our alt-cultures, anyway.
As a self-replicating cultural virus.
Just as patriarchy/authoritarianism
re-invents itself within
queer and feminist
counter-cultures.
....
These ancient evils are
at least two thousand years old,
deeply rooted in religions
and nationalisms;
while progressive movements/cultures/ideals
are comparatively new.
