Americans Say Jews Are the Coolest

Oh, how times have changed: In a new survey, respondents reported feeling more warmly toward the chosen people than those of any other faith.

Maybe it's Seinfeld, or the ubiquitous appeal of bagels. It could be all the Jews in Hollywood, or the YouTube a capella sensations known as the Maccabeats, who flip their latkes with undeniable verve. Whatever the cause, at some point during the last 100 years, America developed a little crush on the chosen people: Jews are officially cool.

Or at least, that's how I read the latest poll from Pew on American attitudes toward other faiths. The researchers asked a panel of more than 3,200 nationally representative adults to take a "feeling thermometer" about religious groups in America, rating their level of "warmth" or "coolness" toward Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Muslims, evangelicals, atheists, and more. Here, the researchers used "cool" to mean "chilly"—the opposite of "cool" as in "you're awesome." Despite making up only two percent of the country's population, despite having only 100 representatives in this 3,000-person poll, Jews were at the top. For Jews like me, this feels like the statistically impossible triumph of Hanukkah, only better.

As the researchers pointed out, respondents were much more likely to report feeling "warmly" toward the religious group they were part of; Catholics were all about other Catholics, evangelicals were enthusiastic about evangelicals, etc. Of all the groups in the survey, Jews felt most loyal to their own tribe; their mean "warmth" rating of other Jews was "89" out of 100, which roughly translates to "we're totally awesome guys" on Pew's ratings scale.



Still, despite the home-team advantage of the Christians in the survey, who made up more than two-thirds of the sample, Jews got the highest overall ratings. A good chunk of the respondents said they don't even know any Jewish people; only 60 percent said they'd ever met a Jew. These feelings of warmth toward Jews aren't just fond personal memories of Mrs. Rosenberg from down the street, who makes an excellent kugel; they're a sign of a broad acceptance and appreciation of Jewish culture. Outside of New York City, Jews are generally rare in terms of numbers. Yet in spite of this, they've become seen as normal—and popular—by the population at large.

Which, it's worth noting, wasn't always the case. A century ago, when Jewish emigration from Central and Eastern Europe was at its peak, American anti-Semitism was common and fierce. In 1915, a factory superintendent named Leo Frank was lynched without a trial in Georgia after being accused of murdering a Christian girl who worked for him. There were caricatures in newspapers; poverty and isolation in New York City; and widespread suspicion of Jews who participated in popular culture. Strains of anti-Semitism stayed strong throughout the twentieth century, despite the world's horror at the Holocaust: In 1952, on the floor of the United States Capitol, Mississippi Congressman John E. Rankin declared that Jews "have been run out of practically every country in Europe in the years gone by, and if they keep stirring race trouble in this country and trying to force their communistic program on the Christian people of America, there is no telling what will happen to them here."

The world at large is full of anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers. Jews, it seems, are not universally accepted; their cool-kid status is unique to America. So why is it different here? Why, despite the anti-Semitism that still exists in the United States, are Americans mostly down with the Jews?

There could be a few factors at play. There's generalized cultural cachet, which is a little hard to pin down, but from doting articles about deli food in The New York Times to Adam Sandler's famous ode to Hanukkah, staples of Jewish culture have become ubiquitous and adored.

But Jewish cool is probably more complex than think pieces and schticks. It's worth noting that white evangelicals rated the faith more highly than respondents from other religions; they were more enthusiastic about Jews than anyone besides Jews themselves. This is not a coincidence; evangelicals have typically been strong supporters of Jews and Zionism, citing the group's status as God's "chosen people" in the Bible and the prophesied future of Israel as the site of Jesus's second coming.

Jews have also had time to become normalized in American culture in a way that people of other faiths have not. Groups like Buddhists and Hindus were given decidedly chillier ratings than their Jewish brethren, and Muslims ranked the lowest out of all religious groups, including the ever-despised atheists. People of these faiths are more likely to be first-, second-, or third-generation immigrants; they haven't been around as long as Jews.

Is it right that this vague connotation of "foreignness" probably influenced people's reported comfort levels? Of course not. But then again, looking too closely at this whole experiment is an invitation to feel uneasy about pluralism in America. It's unsettling that "63" out of 100 was the mean rating for the most popular group in the survey (and I'll say it again, just because it brings me pleasure: that would be the Jews). Americans from all groups, it seems, feel pretty lukewarm about anyone who isn't like them.

Well what do you know? :dunno:

The propaganda machine known as the entertainment industry works. :thumbup:

Which is why Muslims have the lowest rating, they are the 'villians' in the United States of Israel entertainment industry.

I thought these guys may have gotten a special mention .....

Jews are so cool .... Jews that didn't exist no doubt got frozen to death and had nipples break off during the fake holocaust event that never happened

Then these fake Jews that never froze wrote poems that Zionist groups latched on to to brainwash their tribe that they are perpetual victims and goyim want to gas and oven them in fake shower rooms that never gassed anyone and crematoria that could only bake a pizza

But they still kvetched for reparations to pay for nose jobs for their daughters and weekenders on Long Island
Frozen Jews

This poem was done by a man who wrote it during the holocaust in 1944 July the 10th. His name is Avrom Sutzkever.

Have you seen, in fields of snow, frozen Jews, row on row? Blue marble forms lying, not breathing, not dying.

Somewhere a flicker of a frozen soul - glint of fish in an icy swell. All brood. Speech and silence are one. Night snow encases the sun.

A smile glows immobile from a rose lip's chill. Baby and mother, side by side. Odd that her nipple's dried.

Fist, fixed in ice, of a naked old man: the power's undone in his hand. I've sampled death in all guises. Nothing surprises.

Yet a frost in July in this heat - a crazy assault in the street. I and blue carrion, face to face. Frozen Jews in a snowy space.

Marble shrouds my skin. Words ebb. Light grows thin. I'm frozen, I'm rooted in place like the naked old man enfeebled by ice.

Biography about Avrom Sutzkever:
Avrom Sutzkever was born in 1913 in the country that is now called Belarus. He was a Yiddish poet who when he wrote his poems they were always about his life. He lived Siberia most of his life and in his poems usually talked about the ghetto he lived in, in Vilna during World War 2. His works also describe his escape to join the Jewish partisans. In 1915 Sutzkever ran away from then country with his family to Eastern Europe and within that Siberia. They returned to their home in 1920 where he later in life studied literature criticism at the University of Vilna. In 1927 he started to write poems and associated himself with group known as the Yung Vilne (Young Vilna). He died in 2010 on January the 20th.

What is the poem talking about?
This poem is talking about how Jewish people were treated and regarded during the Holocaust. The poem is talking about how when Jewish people were murdered by the Nazi's and the Nazi's couldn't be bothered to pick the bodies up so they left them in the snow. In this poem it gives a very deep description of all the types of people who were murdered; from mothers with children to old men. But all are frozen in the snow. At the end of the poem it is talking about how the poet is so shocked that he is frozen in his place.

What are the poetic techniques are used?
There are a range of poetic techniques used in this poem they are: Metaphors, visual imagery and rhyme. A metaphor is a technique used in this poem, an example of a metaphor is "Blue marble forms lying, not breathing, not dying". This metaphor is talking about how the Jewish people were left out in the snow to die because the Nazi's kicked them out of their houses. "not breathing, not dying" implies a very slow death. The effect of this is we realise how cruel the Nazi's were and we may get angry towards the people who did the cruelty or feel sad for the people who had to suffer it.
There is also visual imagery used in the poem. An example of this is "Odd that her nipple's dried". In this sentence they are saying that a women has been kicked out of her home in the snow with her child. The mother was trying to breastfeed the child but unfortunately the weather was so cold that she couldn't produce any milk because her nipple had frozen. This is a very powerful image since a baby is the symbol of new life and the fact that it will not live because it does not get the nutrients from breastmilk, makes the audience feel the suffering of that time. In this sentence there is also a strong mood of death caused by the imagery. There is a also rhyme shown in the poem an example of this is "Baby and mother, side by side. Odd that her nipple's dried'. This sentence is talking about how a mother and her baby have been kicked out of their home by the Nazi's, in the freezing cold. The mother cannot feed the baby because the snow is so cold her breastmilk has frozen up. This is a very powerful image conveyed to the audience because the rhyme makes it sound jovial and upbeat when ironically it is talking about death. This creates a very eerie atmosphere to the readers because of the irony used in this sentence.

Absolutely!

What you are saying is they are great in deceiving/rabulism/sophism and number juggling/money related things.

But only for their own, not for "goyim", who should stay away from "Those lads and lasses (who, according to you) are as sharp as tacks."

They also make great natural comedians and actors (e.g. politicians and shrinks).

Whenever I read your and your dif pit now TZ friends' comments I inevitably have to recall those special "talents".

:larf:
"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

It's why they often work in finance etc...

Ashkenazi Jews have the highest IQ's in Europe, so for success you want brainy people doing the finances huh!
I mean if you want a basketball team, you get tall athletic people, if you want a rich bank you get Jews.

Some Europeans don't like Ashkenazi Jews, but they should welcome them, they make the countries in Europe greater, just like the whites did when they migrated to Australia, and the Romans did when they came to Britain etc etc...

So if you don't want Ashkenazi Jews in your nation, then you don't want the best for your nation.

Ashkenazi Jews are smart. Shockingly brilliant, in general. Impressive in brain power. How did they get that way? Ashkenazi Jews, aka Ashkenazim, are the descendants of Jews from medieval Alsace and the Rhine Valley, and later, from throughout Eastern Europe. Originally, of course, they were from Israel. Genetic research from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine suggests that the Ashkenazi bloodline branched away from other Jewish groups there 2,500 years ago, and that 40% of them are descended from only four Jewish mothers.
Approximately 80% of the Jews in the world today are Ashkenazim, with the remainder primarily Sephardic.

Researchers who study the Ashkenazim agree that the children of Abraham are on top of the IQ chart. Steven Pinker – who lectured on “Jews, Genes, and Intelligence” in 2007 - says “their average IQ has been measured at 108-115.” Richard Lynn, author of “The Intelligence of American Jews” in 2004, says it is “only” a half-standard higher: 107.5. Henry Harpending, Jason Hardy, and Gregory Cochran, University of Utah authors of the 2005 research report, “Natural History of Ashkenazi Intelligence,” state that their subjects, “score .75 to 1.0 standard deviations above the general European average, corresponding to an IQ of 112-115.” Charles Murray, in his 2007 essay “Jewish Genius,” says “their mean is somewhere in the range of 107-115, with 110 being a plausible compromise.”

Yup Ashkenazi are the smartest in Europe, let's thank them for being so cool and so clever...

I am not disputing that jews have a higher average IQ. Centuries of selective breeding and a focus on intellectual education tends to create that.

The difference is, you conclude from that that jews are "favourable".
Ashkenazi Jews have the highest IQ's in Europe, so for success you want brainy people doing the finances huh!

No, for success you seek the people who have the highest interest in helping you and not those who seek to extract value from you.
I mean if you want a basketball team, you get tall athletic people, if you want a rich bank you get Jews.

Why would I want a "rich bank"? I want a bank that serves me, doesn't charge me too much and is reliable.

Lehman Bros. were jews, remember? Bernie Madoff? Chase, Warburg?
Some Europeans don't like Ashkenazi Jews, but they should welcome them, they make the countries in Europe greater, just like the whites did when they migrated to Australia, and the Romans did when they came to Britain etc etc...

There is lots of debate possible if the whites made Australia "greater". They surely set up some nice settlements for themselves and have boosted the widespread extraction of ores. But is that "great"?

Same for the Romans; introducing taxes, submitting the previously local tribes to a centralised State, playing war games, power play, rapes of local women, etc. etc.

Any back-up for the claim that Ashkenazi jews (what about the Sephardis?) "make the countries in Europe greater"? Do you consider George Soros "a great man"?
So if you don't want Ashkenazi Jews in your nation, then you don't want the best for your nation.

Ah really?

The nation with the highest concentration of jews was my least favourite country I visited. :yerright:
