We are delighted to be joined in the tortoise shack by student Jacob Woolf for a broad conversation on antisemitism, recognising it, the conspiracy theories surrounding it and knowing when cynical players are using it as a weapon rather than caring about what it really means.
This is a deep dive into the subject and we cover the recent tweet controversy, the George Soros conspiracy and the tropes and smears many of us don’t understand even as we use them. We also go into why Antisemitism is the intellectual core of white nationalism. Jacob has kindly put together a list of interesting resources should you want to learn more.
This is one of our favourite pods.
Understanding Antisemitism by Jews for Racial and Economic Justice
Origins of the Soros Conspiracy
The George Soros’s of the Past
Introduction to a three part series I’m writing on the connections between antisemitism and the conspiracies about Replacement Theory or ‘white genocide’ and the Frankfurt School
Source of the quote: “Antisemitism is the intellectual core of white nationalism”
Currently the best available history of how the Frankfurt School conspiracy became popularised, although it misses the Kevin McDonald book published the same year as the documentary. It also discussed how these conspiracies can affect both the left and the right.
If you want to know more about that book and Kevin McDonald, I highly recommend this podcast episode.
