As far as online boards go, Zig Forums is sort of my political home. I'm effectively an anarcho-syndicalist (with some green anarchist tendencies), though I'm more optimistic about the progressive/social democratic movement than I probably should be.
However, I've been posting a lot on Zig Forums just because it moves faster, and it's honestly been depressing seeing how much anti-semitism there is on there.
I'm half-Ashkenazi ethnically, and honestly that's not part of my heritage I ever thought much about or really identified that much with, until recently when I experienced some IRL hatred for it. Religiously I find more insight in Zen Buddhism and Quakerism.
I'm extremely critical of Israel's brutal apartheid-style system in the occupied territories. I'd like to see the settlements dismantled, and ideally I'd eventually like to see Palestinians fully integrated into Israeli society on equal terms, though I also want religiosity on both sides to decline, and for Netanyahu's ultranationalists as well as Hamas to lose power.
It's been depressing, seeing some of the same paranoid anti-semitic conspiracy theories I see on the right also surfacing on the authoritarian end of the left. I'm fine with criticism of Israel, and I have a fair amount of it myself, since it is effectively colonial. However, a lot of the hate I'm hearing isn't just critical of Zionism, but of ethnic Jews as people.
I feel like as a Jewish leftist, there's a lot to be proud of - Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Emma Goldman, Murray Bookchin, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Rosa Luxemburg, and others. But seeing all this anti-semitism has been depressing. I realize Jews today don't have it anywhere near as bad as Muslims, Arabs, latinos, and blacks, but this is honestly the first time I'm really experiencing ethnic hatred directed at me, IRL and on my circles online. Obviously Zig Forums isn't the best place to go for rationality - they would honestly take the Khmer Rouge, North Korea, and the Soviet Union over the Paris Commune, Anarchist Barcelona, or Rojava. But still. Shit, I realize this makes me a complete hypocrite, but I've actually considered spending some time in Israel, just to learn more and connect more with that part of my ethnic identity.
