Overlap with Antisemitism[edit]

This Lemma and Antisemitism overlap. We will have to sacrifice a bag of beans first to determine how to proceed... (talk) 21:44, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Needs sourcing![edit]

This article is grossly under-sourced. I added one cn note, but the piece could be littered with them.---Mona- (talk) 18:43, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Removal of CN note (possibly temporary)[edit]

An article at the Guardian today singles out a google search for [ jews evil ] as being manipulated by hate groups. Whatever the cause may be, the search results are indeed atrocious. This article was the only useful result on the first two pages of results for me. Unfortunately, google uses the "Help needed" text as the abstract, making the result quite useless.

I removed the help needed template hoping that google will pick up the first paragraph of the article for its search results, which could potentially reach a large amount of people during the next days. I hope that this is acceptable for the rationalwiki community, and that you judge this edit with consideration of my reasons. it would be perfectly possible to revert in a few days when the interest wanes. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

4chan is pissed, again[edit] 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 01:07, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Three people. It's three people who are in that thread ... and they aren't even pissed.—€h33s3βurg3rF@€3 Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 18:03, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

11 Million when was it revised up?[edit]

When I first went to school it was 4 million jews killed, then 5, then 6, then 7, then 8, then 9 then 10, now 11 in this article, where do these magical figures come from and keep getting bigger as the years go on? The 4 million was well documented, no document of Hitler ever talking about killing the jews only the one in 1943 talking about making jews part of the german society, but never hear about that....--Whocares001 (talk) 04:55, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

11 million refers to the total number of people killed in Nazi camps, not just Jews. That figure includes Jews, Communists, Masons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Romani, Slavs, and many others. RoninMacbeth (talk) 05:10, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Oh I would have thought it was a figure relevant to the topic. Never mind already been fixed--Whocares001 (talk) 06:12, 9 July 2017 (UTC)


What's wrong with my edit here?

If someone mentions something negative about Jews call it a trope or a canard then call them anti-Semitic and accuse them of trying to start a Holocaust and being the same as Hitler.

Is that not the procedure? Euphoric Intelligence (talk) 19:07, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

No, it is not. Such a post implies that you are troll, whether you intended it to or not. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 19:14, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
What the hell are you talking about? This is literally the content of every statement from the ADL. Are you some kind of anti-Semite? Euphoric Intelligence (talk) 19:28, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Conspiracy theories and the Jews[edit]

People generally competent as a rule avoid doing conspiracies. If Jews are successful at business, the arts, academia, law, medicine, or politics it is because they are good at it. Figure that a Jew who can be elected to the US Senate from a state with less than 1% of its population being Jewish is doing something that makes his "Jewishness" irrelevant, such as being very good at formulating a program and having a competent campaign. If one can do something without a criminal conspiracy, then one does so without the conspiracy and with that the potential of being caught at it.

The most common conspiracies involve criminal plots as in attempts to do insurance fraud for gain, as in the movie Double Indemnity in which an unloved husband is worth more dead than alive. The more people involved in such a plot, the more likely it is to fail because someone unknowingly recruits some alleged low-life who proves to be a police officer who thwarts the plot. It should be obvious that much that is a renowned achievement by an individual Jew is the result of dedicated effort (and getting the chance to do so), overall competence, and perhaps some solid self-promotion. None of this is what some gentile with similar talent and opportunity can't do. Mobsters also resort to criminal conspiracies to do major crimes.

If one really is good at what one does, then one rarely needs to make ethical compromises to achieve one's ends. Among the few conspiracies that involve people generally competent and of good character is, perhaps paradoxically, the July 20 plot against Adolf Hitler which, although it contained no Jews, would have served Jewish interests (end of the Holocaust!) well. Pbrower2a (talk) 18:17, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

I know, right? That's why all these conspiracy theories about how "dA jOoZ are taking over our money and government ONOZ!!!" are so absurd. (And also, I fail to see how one Jew in our federal senate means da jooz are trying to force everyone to celebrate Hanukkah.) --Goatspeed.

Is there a point to including two Ben Garrison cartoons modified to make him look (more) antisemitic?[edit]

They're labelled as fake, sure, but including them feels like it will do more to support his and his supporters persecution narrative than make a point about anti-semitism. It's not clear to me whether they were created to smear Jewish people or Garrison himself. If it's the latter, we're doing a troll's work for them. - Immigrant laborer (talk) 01:37, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

Mmm. Those are pretty good examples though. Examples of both Anti-semite conspiracists' mode and of how conspiracists in general have interchangeable boogeymen. SolPyre (talk) 03:17, 2 February 2023 (UTC)
