When Netanyahu criticizes Trump, fascism is given a run for its money by farce. Our man, who himself is not that far from fascist in sentiment, said in part, “The State of Israel respects all religions.” How does that happen in a Jewish-only state? And where ethnic cleansing is state policy?
To show his confused commitment to ecumenism, Netanyahu is going ahead with his scheduled meeting with Trump. Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall for that encounter? They may be hotshots in the world but they’re both still dumb-asses with scary contemptible politics. There’s no nice way to put that. Is that a political assessment? Hell yes.
Marx famously said, ‘History repeats itself–first as tragedy & then as farce.’ Scully has added her piece to this by saying that under neoliberal capitalism, you regrettably can’t tell the difference between the two.
