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.” ;-)

Holocaust children: murdered-victims, survivor-victims. Morris Gordon speaks out.

I saw the above artwork at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) in Washington D.C. A child survivor relates on paper what’s happening in his or her own life at the time, God’s happy children playing in God’s good creation. Or… wait… They are not playing at all. They are happy not to play but to have survived, and then now have each other, arms locked to protect each other. The dog – can you see it? – is a German Shepherd that they would have seen in the extermination camps. That dog’s tail’s position is only to be seen like one second before an attack to the death. That German Shepherd was trained for killing. The children are happy to protect each other. The moral capacity of children is bigger than the universe, as big as the very heart of God.

It was at the entrance of the Israeli Holocaust Memorial Museum (Yad vShem [The Power and the Name]) just outside of Jerusalem, that the video below was made. These are the words written over the entrance which counteract the words written over the gates of Auschwitz. The audio you hear are the names of the exterminated children being read inside the Childrens’ Memorial.

The picture below was taken outside of the Jewish Synagogue in the “Jewish Ghetto” in Rome:

jewish ghetto rome children memorial

It refers to when the Nazis stormed the Ghetto in Rome, brutalizing and kidnapping Jewish “neonati” (new-borns) who were brought to Nazi extermination camps. The words at the top – which just now filled my whole body with shivers in solidarity with these youngsters and in horror of what happened – are as follows:

“… and they didn’t even begin to live.”

Here’s another survivor, now deceased, the husband of a good friend, recounting the times…

Skip to 1 hour 29 minutes: 52 seconds mark (I tried to copy the URL at that time, but I’m not techy).

There are a number of memorials throughout the year around the world. Really.

Everyday is a memorial. That’s the only way.

Unrelated, surely

Interesting, that, coming from the Dems. Just a little irony there. Or maybe this is hypocritical.

Oh wait! What’s this? Ilhan Omar is now the U.S. House of Representatives Vice Chair of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee.

Ilhan Omar is the one who entirely dismissed the terrorist events of September 11, 2001 as “Some people did something.” But, we shouldn’t read anything into anything, right?

But, wait! Then we have this:

Nazi-hunting trophies, guns, swords: need help for dates, places, ranks…

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is wp-16125264106916678056941877162982.jpg

The Luger Pistole Parabellum 9mm was made in a number of configurations from 1898 to 1948, and was used throughout the Wehrmacht during both World Wars I and II. It’s symbolic of Nazi Germany. The markings on this particular Lugar pictured above put it at a manufacturing date just in time for World War I. But someone more expert than I will have to look up the serial number pictured further below. This Nazi sidearm was likely used by a young soldier in World War I, who was so attached to it that as he rose through the ranks in now Nazi Germany he added the Swastika.

The gun below was captured from this Nazi monster in Germany in the early 1940s by a young American soldier who passed it along to his son, now himself much older. It’s a trophy which, because it is a trophy, mocks the impotent Third Reich.

Over the decades, advances were made in the mags, which finally allowed a view of remaining ammo.

If anyone has the wherewithal to provide an exact date and location please drop a comment on this post.

Here are some random examples of the same or similar decal work. I’m guessing that the differences regard diversity of branches of the military or intel or perhaps rank:

Meanwhile, to help the story along a bit, there’s another trophy, not certain it’s from the same Nazi guy, but I’m told that that’s the story in recall. It’s a parade sword with rubies for eyes for the lion-hand-guard. Not sure of the other symbolism or what rank one would have to have in order to carry this. If anyone knows something about this, again, please drop a comment on this post. Sorry, but it looks like the Nazi guy from whom this sword was captured was run through with it right up to the hilt; I’m guessing that’s his blood still on the sword after all this time. I asked the owner and he said that such was his guess as well.

I asked the guy if I could put these pictures up on the blog not giving any names or locations, and he readily agreed, as long as I didn’t where or who, lest neo-Nazis kill him him to get it back.

There are a thousand reasons why this affected me deeply enough for me to take these pictures and share them with you. For instance:

  • The other day I ran a bunch more of my ancestors names (newly discovered the other day) on the USHMM site and discovered that these were frequent names related to Nazi “Final Solution” camps. Sigh.
  • Just the other day I also (re)watched a few videos:

I carry all this in my soul…

  • Romans 9:4-5 — 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.
