Stranded

The post-election wailing is raging on Twitter:

Imagine having a passport that allows you to move freely between, live in and work in 28 countries, including many of the worlds most affluent, with excellent free health care and social services wherever you go & voting to tear that passport up and be stranded on an island.

Imagine that. Poor babies will be stranded on an island! Because nobody who doesn’t have an EU passport ever travels anybody.

It’s also really funny that rich people are so clueless they think moving freely, living and working in 28 countries is all about having the right passport. Totally reminds me of this trust fund kid who asked me, “Why do you never travel in summer? You don’t like traveling?”

  1. Since Izgad reads this blog, I wanted to ask. He wrote a post I wanted to comment on, yet his blog does not allow anonymous comments. Does it mean I have to show everybody my real email? How could “Unknown ” leave a comment then?

    The post is:

    Is Anti-Zionism Anti-Semitism? My Response to Mehdi Hasan
    http://izgad.blogspot.com/2019/12/is-anti-zionism-anti-semitism-my.html

    My response:

    I do view anti-Zionism as a form of anti-Semitism simply since it uses double standard, judging Jews differently from all other nations.

    Most anti-Zionists are pro-Palestinian nationalism, so how can they logically be against Jewish right to the same thing, if one supposes they are not driven by being uniquely against Jews?

    (If they were against nationalism, it would arguably have made more sense to be against Palestinian nationalism without a state than against an already existing stable nation state of Israel, the most normal and Western state of the entire Middle East.)
