Hail Spencer! Richard Spencer Ties White Supremacy to Zionism — Leaves Rabbi Speechless

Richard Spencer got the better of a Rabbi during his presentation at Texas A & M University on Tuesday night.

Jewish Forward

A prominent leader of the “alt-right” left a Hillel rabbi speechless when he drew a direct parallel between white supremacy and Zionism — igniting debate on social media about whether such a comparison has any validity.

Richard Spencer, who leads the white nationalist National Policy Institute, appeared at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas on Tuesday night. Hundreds of students protested outside of the event, while others stood silently with raised fists inside the hall.

During a question-and-answer session, Texas A&M Hillel’s Rabbi Matt Rosenberg stood and invited the white nationalist to join him in Torah study. Rosenberg’s invitation, and Spencer’s response, were captured on video by The Eagle, the Texas A&M student paper, and viewed widely on Twitter.

“My tradition teaches a message of radical inclusion and love,” Rosenberg said. “Will you sit town and learn Torah with me, and learn love?”

Spencer declined the invitation, but used it as an opportunity to suggest that the objectives of Zionism and Jewish continuity were close to his own goals for white people.

“Do you really want radical inclusion into the State of Israel?” Spencer said. “And by that I mean radical inclusion. Maybe all of the Middle East could go move in to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. Would you really want that?”

Rosenberg, who later admitted he is not a good debater, stood silent.

“You’re not answering,” Spencer said.

“I’m not answering,” Rosenberg said.

Spencer went on to argue that Jewish continuity is predicated on resistance to assimilation. He framed that cultural imperative as similar to the movement for so-called white rights in the U.S.

“Jews exist precisely because you did not assimilate,” he said. “That is why Jews are a coherent people with a history and a culture and a future. It’s because you had a sense of yourselves. I respect that about you. I want my people to have that same sense of themselves.”

Rosenberg later acknowledged that the confrontation wasn’t his best moment.

“I wasn’t on the high school debate team,” Rosenberg told the Forward. “I really didn’t want to get into it. That might have been the wrong decision, but I’ll let the next rabbi deal with it.”

Rosenberg, the Hillel rabbi at Texas A&M for the past three years, said he found Spencer’s attempt to get him to defend Israel erroneous and bordering on anti-Semitic.

“I am a simple teacher of Torah,” he said.

Mainstream pro-Israel groups including J Street and AIPAC did not respond to request for comment about Spencer’s remarks.

Strident critics of Israel were quick to jump on the one-sided debate between Spencer and the rabbi as evidence that Zionism shares some ideological common ground with far right political movements.

“The fact that white nationalists see something to admire in Israel is alarming,” said Naomi Dann, a spokeswoman for Jewish Voice for Peace. “In this new political era, we need to be able to have conversations in the Jewish community that grapple with the deep questions about what Israel has become.”

Max Blumenthal, an activist and harsh critic of Israel, tweeted that the incident illustrates why “Zionists are poorly positioned to confront white nationalists.”

But Mort Klein of the Zionist Organization of America forcefully disagreed with the comparison between white nationalism, calling it “a false and absurd analogy.” “Arab Muslims and Christians make up a full 20 percent of Israel’s population and have the same rights there as everyone else,” he told the Forward. “Jews, we maintain our own culture, but always have relationships with people from other groups, his statement is ridiculous.”

  2. Of course he leaves him speechless since he is right.
    Whites are the only ones who aren’t allowed to have a culture of their own or take pride in it. Everyone else is celebrated, through “diversity’ or otherwise, but if you say you are proud for being white and proud of your culture you’re a nazi racist.

  3. Spencer did a good job on this one, but it’s really just a logical comparison exposing (((them))) as hypocrites. Even though Spencer hit the target with exact precision, the rabbi still thought he was “bordering on being anti-Semitic,” but I bet he wouldn’t think it anti-White if he supported massive third-world immigration into the U.S.

  4. I watched part of Spencer’s speech last night but fell asleep during the post-speech Q&A and missed this part. Looks like the oh so cool poor debater rabbi took a JDAM that rocked his world. Of course, what Spencer said is the precise question that should have been put to the Juden over and over for the last sixty years. Now it is out for all to see and those deceitful c*nts have to answer it. Or not, if they just fold like this rabbi did and refuse to answer. They will just call it taking the 5th. BTW, I fell asleep, because the questioners were all low IQ negroes and white cucks who kept tripping over Spencer’s logic and intellect. I just got bored watching him skewer them.

  5. Oh, to add to my last comment, the Juden and their fellow-travelers will never directly answer the question, instead, any entreaty to answer the question will be met with accusations of anti-semitism and bigotry. But how sweet it will be to watch them squirm.

  6. ““The fact that white nationalists see something to admire in Israel is alarming,” said Naomi Dann, a spokeswoman for Jewish Voice for Peace.”
    She may be twisting his words. But if Spencer truly does admire Israel and Zionism he will not get very far. Only Jews are allowed to be racists. He should know that by now.
    The media always reports things like this as White Supremacy, which pretty much nobody says except for the Jewsmedia.
    That is why I often refer to Jewish Supremacy which is the real factual situation today in every Western country, not just the middle eastern panhanding country Israel.
    I am not sure that defeating people with clever debating gets very far. Maybe a small time politician or local mayor. Past that point, people have to like the person. Clever people are very often not liked by the “masses”. That is why so many politicians are likable but essentially not very intelligent.
    Whatever Spencer says does not matter and will not help whites. He alone got Trump to dump the entire alt-right movement with his (((Three Stooges))) giving Nazi salutes. Not Roman salutes, that was 2000 years ago.

    • Partly disagree. Trump said the words of disavowal of the alt-right, but with Trump, words are sometimes contradictory. Bannon is still his guy and Bannon gives a voice to the alt right, as does Milo. I think Trump will say what the “respectable” people want to hear him say, but will do what he wants to do.

  7. Spencer has made sure Trump will not hire a single member of the alt-right. ““If I thought he was a racist or alt-right or any of the things, the terms we could use, I wouldn’t even think about hiring him,” he said.”

    Alienating Trump, by a Trump voter, after his victory and before his inauguration is about the most stupid thing possible to do. Unless the so called right wing person is actually a fraud who wants to be Trumps enemy and critic for the next four years. This fits the neo Nazi activity perfectly, they do not want to ever win Government, they just want to bleat and make whites look bad. Skinheads achieve the same result, while I sympathise with them privately. . Even worse, Spencer may have planned with the Jews who Nazi saluted to achieve exactly this result. He can now be the new George Lincoln Rockwell, speaking the truth while hurting whites and helping blacks through “extremism”. Hitler had no chance of conquering his enemies, the Jews, 80 years ago. Rockwell had even less chance 50 years ago. So what chance does any far right person have now to sway the masses to vote for them, or to even dream iof ending Jew power over the West? The voting part actually may happen in countries like Austria and France due to extreme migrant provocation. I do not see it happening in Australia or Germany living under the same poo coloured invasions, there are too many passive, cucked, brainwashed, PC, lefty, do gooder, and fearful voters. Jew power via their ((MSM))) is too strong, they have an absolute monopoly over newsprint and TV news – which is illegal of course. Trump would not have won if he had been an authentic far right candidate.

    Nazi salutes, swastikas, anything to do with Hitler – all help the left, multicultism, BDSM, Coons, you name it. Perhaps using a word like Coons or niggers helps Africans to move to the USA, Australia also. The above media article shows that whites are still on the way out. Trump will help whites but he will help all who live in the USA and want to work. The Founding Fathers were absolute criminal dumb arses not to have had a pro white National Immigration policy from day one. They should have ended importation of all black slaves. They should have favoured strongly white Protestants from Northern Europe, especially native English speakers and excluded Jews. Too late now, the gate is open and the horse bolted – in.
    91 years ago Hitler wrote in his famous book “The USA is a mongrel nation”. USA was very white then compared to now.

    • Peter Brimlowe and Jared Taylor, prominent in the alt-right movement, were upset with Spencer. It’s interesting to see where Spence goes next. He wants to do a big college speaking tour like MILO.

      Where I may disagree with you and Wullfe is that I’m not sure that mixing shock (Hitler) and reason (truth) is a strategy for failure. Trump seems to have done pretty well with that strategy.

  8. There is only one voice that would be against Israel It will be the voice of Satan. No other voice. People who think. The spirit in white separatists is not the same in the Israelites. God did not chose the white separatists. That is a big difference, God wants us to love as one not seeing geek or Jew not seeing bond or free or male or female. People who have the truth will speak the truth. They that don’t have the truth will want discord.
