I feel like we’ve seen something like this before. We’ve seen it in the past maybe? During a specific era, where an empire was growing, swallowing up lands, whether they liked it or not. Maybe I’m wrong, and I’ve got history wrong.
According to USAToday,
Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee “or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated,” reported Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website.
Wait wait wait wait. Pay a registration fee? Face their citizenship being revoked? Being deported? Property confiscated? Surely, it can’t be??? After all, these protests were a good thing, we were told! It’d be mutually beneficial for everyone involved (minus the West and Ukraine).
I must be lying. Surely, there is no evidence to back this up??? The Israeli’s must be lying! Why, they’re probably doing this to provoke unnecessary conflict! Yeah, that’s what it is…
Wait, nevermind. As quoted “The leaflets bore the name of Denis Pushilin, who identified himself as chairman of “Donetsk’s temporary government,” and were distributed near the Donetsk synagogue and other areas, according to the reports.” It’s the Head of the “temporary government” who authorized they be handed out. Oops.
So when you realize that communo-fascism is back on the rise, it worries you a bit. Maybe we’re in for yet another mass execution. Who knows, but if history has it’s way, this is only the beginning.
