Common wisdom today indicates that the term Semite originated in the 18th century, and actually was used to refer to the LANGUAGES related to Hebrew,
and not the people.
Thank you Professor! I knew if anyone could find the real answer on this you could. I guess more people should try learning from books instead of the
main stream media and the sometimes very incorrect things people say even though they think that they are right when they say them?
I think what causes the confusion today is the victimization trend which started in the 20th century, whereby people of various religions, races, and
religions were able to convince the MSM that they were VICTIMS of discrimination.
It’s great that someone is capable of convincing the mainstream media something! Though I must confess my own belief is that it was the mainstream
media that convinced them that they were victims. For you see Professor my inalienable rights though regardless of my race, creed, religion, sex,
sexual orientation or social and economic status keep me from every being a victim! I wonder how these people chose to become victims.
Just like a lot of people are not quite certain what Semitic means or where it originates from, my inalienable rights weren’t granted to me by the
United States Constitution. My inalienable rights don’t need permission from anyone to exist because I naturally and inherently have the right to
make my own choice and act freely and accept any consequence my freedom of actions might bring. No one can take that away from me and no one can give
that to me either not even me. If I chose to submit and be a victim that is my inalienable right to make that choice, if I chose to be dominant and
not be a victim that is my inalienable right to make that choice, if I chose to be dominant and even victimize others that is my inalienable right to
make that choice, just like they have the inalienable right to submit to me or vie for dominance against me.
I sure would like to know just why it is people choose to exercise their inalienable right to submit to the dominance of others and imagine themselves
victims by making that choice of their own freewill and then feel like they deserve some special consideration or prize, and that they should not have
to accept the consequences of their own actions.
Why if I did not know better Professor I would say this is a trick to attempt to dominate others through a false submissive posture.
I have an inalienable right to say balderdash and I do!
Using the new religion of victimization, Obama can get away with anything, because anyone that dares to challenge anything he does, is automatically
bigoted against blacks. Likewise, anyone that dares challenge Israel is bigoted against Jews, and they have convinced the main stream media that the
term they should use is Anti-Semitic.
My mother taught me sticks and stones can break my bones Professor but names can never hurt me. Conversely the more names you can stick on your
business card the more impressive it looks!
I have an inalienable right to say what I mean and mean what I say and no matter what consequence might arise from that, no one but me can stop me
from exercising that inalienable right.
People do have a right to fear being labeled and live in submission and trepidation of those who are quick to label them with the intent to cause them
humiliation and scorn. I have an inalienable right though to admire people who aren’t afraid of such meaningless consequences of speaking the truth
to the truth regardless of what other people may think or say about that too.
I have an inalienable right to not like anyone for any reason and no one can take that away from me. They can invent words to try to make me feel bad
for being honest and true to myself and my principals, and they can try in other ways to stop me from doing those things too but the only one who can
really keep me from doing that is me and that’s my inalienable right to chose to do that too.
I think inalienable is a very misunderstood word too Professor, just like anti-Semitic most people don’t seem to understand it but say it a lot.
Here is another thing I sure would like to say, there are never any accidents in life and just like words like anti-Semitic don’t really mean what
they appear to on the surface neither does almost anything else that we see. We should not pretend for a single solitary second that the Powers that
Be wish us to submit to these preposterous notions of criticism of action even those carried out by collective groups of shared identity and purpose
are wrong and bigoted and therefore should never be said.
We should instead see that they are challenging us to put an end to such things and the ways of such people by speaking honestly to the dishonesty of
what they do.
I am sure they would like us to do that but do that unwisely in a way that just eliminates such people and they are prodding us and tricking us in to
doing just that. That sure would make such people victims in a sense but they still would be only victims of themselves and the consequences of their
I think we should annoy and perturb both the powers that be and people who want to dominate through a submissive posture claiming to be victims and
using emotional manipulation to dominate and get what they want, by simply handling that the way we would with little children who do the same thing,
by gently explaining it to them and we know better and will not fall for that game or go along. I don’t think we have anything to fear but fear
itself in that wise and sensible approach in exercising our inalienable right to say….”Yeah right”!
Both these groups are without doubt trying to antagonize to rash and ill considered action to cause an event to happen or justification for one. I
like to think the rest of us are smarter than that, it’s our inalienable right to be so.
