Jewish members of the internal security force often appear to have been motivated by personal rage and a desire for revenge related to their Jewish identity: Their families had been murdered and the anti-Communist underground was, in their perception, a continuation of essentially the same anti-Semitic and anti-Communist tradition.
It goes without saying that nearly every one of these women—Rose Mc Gowan, Ambra Batillana, Laura Madden, Ashley Judd, etc.—was a Gentile, all the better to feed Weinstein’s revenge-tinged fantasy of having risen above his outer-borough, bridge-and-tunnel Semitic origins.
But it turns out there was a Jew(ess) in the bunch, none other than Lauren Sivan, of the potted-plant episode.
I am taking you to wreak my vengeance On the world I could not get away from!
Slezkine seems comfortable with revenge as a Jewish motive, but he does not consider traditional Jewish culture itself to be a contributor to Jewish attitudes toward traditional Russia, even though he notes that a very traditional part of Jewish culture was to despise the Russians and their culture.
As Connelly emphasizes, it’s about, in Portnoy’s words, “Hating Your Goy and Eating One Too.” The hatred is real and is intimately tied in with sexual competition.
A passage that is remarkably similar to Portnoy appears in my review of Yuri Slezkine’s The migration of the Jews to the urban centers of the USSR is a critical aspect of Slezkine’s presentation, but it strains credulity to suppose that these migrants threw off, completely and immediately, all remnants of the Eastern European shtetl culture which, Slezkine acknowledges, had a deep sense of estrangement from non-Jewish culture, and in particular a fear and hatred of peasants resulting from the traditional economic relations between Jews and peasants and exacerbated by the long and recent history of anti-Jewish pogroms carried out by peasants.
Edmund Connelly’s article on Harvey Weinstein and the shiksa phenomenon discusses revenge as a motive.
From this perspective, what Jews like Weinstein are doing is the result of hatred toward the goyim because of their perceptions of the long history of anti-Semitism.
Outgroup females are especially valued if they are from a high-status group (e.g., sexually abusing WASP women from upper-middle class families would be more appealing than, say, sexually abusing lower class Black women; hence the satisfaction of the Portnoy character for his conquest of the “aristocratic Yankee beauty whose forebears arrived on these shores in the seventeenth century” and his comment that “I don’t seem to stick my dick up these girls, as much as I stick it up their backgrounds — as though through fucking I will discover America.
