UPDATE: This priest changed the anti-Semitism of the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey

On top is the original post. Scroll down for the surprising update. ///

Have our U.S. Jewish or U.S.-Israeli Dual-Citizenship friends been cancelled by the American Community Survey of the U.S. Census Bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce? I’m guessing that the anti-Israeli “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” (BDS) movement is strong in the ACS, Census Bureau and the Dept of Commerce. After all, (1) Arab League countries are included, such as with Lebanon and Egypt under “White” and, in contrast, (2) I’m guessing that everyone knows about what happened recently in Charlottesville against the Jews:

“I’m here for killing Jews” says the militant white supremacist in Charlottesville.

Do our Jewish friends identify the same as White Germans? Really? You’re going to make them say that?

Do our Jewish friends identify as the “White” Arab League countries named? Really? You’re going to make them say that?

Oh! My bad. I get it. Jews are relegated to writing in something with the last line: “Some other race – Print race or origin. What that means, though, is that they are not good enough to be White, you know, like the Lebanese on the northern border or the Egyptians on the southern border, or the Hitlerians still round about, say, in Suitland, MD. What that says is that Israel has no right to exist and must be annihilated from the face of the earth. Yep.

About that last line in the form – “Some other race – Print race or origin” – I would be tempted to write in “God’s ‘chosen people'” (Isaiah 43:30), you know, just to give everyone at the anti-Semitic ACS, Census Bureau, Commerce Department a heart attack. In case they claim to be Christian, I cite Jesus:

  • “Salvation is from the Jews” – Jesus (John 4:22).

Those who are marginalized, put beyond the peripheries, thrown into last place, will be first. Remember, as Saint Paul says:

  • “They are Israelites; theirs the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; theirs the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, is the Messiah. God who is over all be blessed forever. Amen.” (Romans 9:4-5)

UPSHOT: This is yet another reason among so very many why I absolutely will not, as a Catholic Priest, respond to the American Community Survey, even though if not doing so may well earn me Congressionally sanctioned penalties of up to $5,000.00 in fines and up to five years in a Federal Penitentiary. What a bunch of Neo-Nazis, right? Just a question. When you’re looking for genocidal criminals, sometimes you have to know that they may well come to knock on your door when they surmise that you are not complying.

Of course, I still bait them, advertise where I am. It’s not that I’m hiding. Here’s a picture from the slightly revised back of Sassy the Subaru, being more explicit about my dad’s foray’s into service for God and neighbor, always retaining my version of the Israeli flag:

Come and take me! While they pout about all this clarity over against their lack of capacity to be social justice warriors – so easy to see through their anti-American identity politics – making them frustrated and boorish and, I’m quite sure, violent bullies… meanwhile, must I really continue to point out why I can’t comply with such hateful madness in future posts?

I mean, I think all the posts I’ve written on this already should suffice to get some people fired and perhaps jailed for abuse of power over against we the people. Hey! That’s an idea!

Let’s see… who might be able to spearhead litigation or better, a Congressional inquiry, on something like this? Maybe the Simon Wiesenthal Center. After all, they are known for Holocaust research and remembrance, hunting Nazi war criminals, combating anti-Semitism, tolerance education, defending Israel, and its Museum of Tolerance.

UPDATE: After a blusterous apology for their racism some weeks ago (which seems to have disappeared!), here is what is now, at any rate, instead presented by the American Community Survey of the U.S. Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce, meaning, I win. ;-)

I still hope that the Jews write in at the very end: “The Chosen People.” ;-)

    UGH! We just perpetuate this madness by responding to such stupid questions, so I am glad you are not participating (unless to return it with fun-filled answers and truth – God’s Chosen People!!)

  2. If a survey asks my race, is it improper to answer “hundred yard dash?”
