"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."

~Doesn't matter where it originated, it is the truth.

That's what They want you to think (assuming a conspiracy).

Of course, it'd be easy to find out who's in charge that way, but in fact there are many, many different groups who you're not allowed to blanket-blame. In fact, I think the union of those sets encompasses every human on the planet! This means that instead of being a useful tool to find out the truth, that quote embodies a method of placing blame upon arbitrary groups of people who do not necessarily deserve it, to draw attention away from those who are causing the real problems.

TL;DR: Antisemites don't become right just because people don't want to put up with their shit.

Antisemites don't become right just because people don't want to put up with their shit.

Exposing/criticizing Israeli participation in crimes against humanity does not make you antisemitic.

And criticising Isræli participation in whatever doesn't make you not antisemitic. The two are completely unrelated. While it's easier to resort to antisemitism, criticising a nation state (rightly or wrongly) doesn't necessarily involve saying "Jews are evil, kill 'em!"
