Will the Real Jessica Krug Please Sit Down?

1,971 words

Recently, Jessica Krug, a Jewish Left-wing activist and professor at George Washington University, revealed that she had been assuming black and Latino identities for a good deal of her adult life. Krug’s confession [1], entitled “The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies,” is about as angst-ridden and precious as a breakup poem penned by a fourteen-year-old girl. She has admitted to the world that, although she still supports Black Power, Cancel Culture, and wishes to remain in good standing within the anti-white Left, she is nothing more than a liar and a fraud — and a mentally ill one at that. In a display oozing self-effacing contrition, she invites all the blame that blacks and browns care to heap on her. She cancels herself, you see. Sorry just isn’t going to cut it. She doesn’t know what to do. Yada yada.

I am not a culture vulture. I am a culture leech.

*  *  *

I have thought about ending these lies many times over many years, but my cowardice was always more powerful than my ethics. I know right from wrong. I know history. I know power.

I am a coward.

*  *  *

I am a coward.

There is no ignorance, no innocence, nothing to claim, nothing to defend. I have moved wrong in every way for years.

*  *  *

I believe in restorative justice, where possible, even when and where I don’t know what that means or how it could work. I believe in accountability. And I believe in cancel culture as a necessary and righteous tool for those with less structural power to wield against those with more power.

On one hand, this is just laughable. One of our enemies has just suffered a humiliating pratfall. How are we not to laugh at this? Of course, it helps that before her fall she was chock full of pretense and hubris. Check out this selfie video [2] in which Krug lambasts the New York City Council in a rambling, F-bomb-laden rant. In it, she cheeses it up under the pro-wrestling moniker “Jess La Bombera,” complete with a cringy fake accent. Apparently, she’s mad in the cabesa about racial inequality and, more specifically, gentrification and the conditions of Latinos in East Harlem (as if they could do better in Mexico or El Salvador). She hates the fact that the city government has access to a “gang database.” She’s ticked off that the IDF is teaching counter-insurgency methods to New York’s finest. She castigates white New Yorkers who had the nerve to speak before the Council and not yield their time to black and brown people (whom she refers to as her “siblings”). She also calls for the abolition of the New York City Police Department, which she can’t stop calling a “colonial occupation force.”

When she finally gets to the substance of her complaints, it’s all about how the cops had claimed they had COVID and spat on her black and brown brethren during a recent demonstration. She also alleges that the cops had beaten them, caused panic attacks, and gassed them. And then when they all got arrested, the white demonstrators got released before the non-whites.

Of course, she offers no evidence for her claims, only a salsa-flecked spew of malice and spite. And she is an admitted liar. So how can anyone take any of this seriously? Either she’s exaggerating or outright lying about the actions of the police, or she’s deceptively leaving out any bad behavior on the part of her swarthy siblings that might have forced the police to crack down on them in the first place. This, I’m afraid, is typical of non-white complaints of white authority, and it reveals more an anti-white animus than any legitimate claim to justice.

And as for whether we should appreciate her candor, how do we know it’s genuine? Maybe someone close to her threatened to dox her if she didn’t do it herself? That’s what the National Vanguard reports [3]. Or maybe she’s such a narcissist, she felt being a self-identified fraud would gain her more attention and notoriety than being just another run-of-the-mill activist of color?

She also can’t write very well, which only adds to the hilarity. Try parsing this doozy of a paragraph and see if you disagree.

But mental health issues can never, will never, neither explain nor justify, neither condone nor excuse, that, in spite of knowing and regularly critiquing any and every non-Black person who appropriates from Black people, my false identity was crafted entirely from the fabric of Black lives. That I claimed belonging with living people and ancestors to whom and for whom my being is always a threat at best and a death sentence at worst.

Yeah, she’s definitely got a case of the crazy in her writing style as well.

Jessica Krug deserves everything negative she is going to get out of this. Her credibility is completely shot, and her duplicity only increases the contempt that the hardcore, non-white Left has for its so-called white allies. And with good reason. I have contempt for them as well. (White shields [4], anyone? Yes, please!)

Krug says she supports cancel culture? Great. She says she wants to cancel herself? Even better. After all, this is the fate she wishes on her white, Right-wing enemies, so why shouldn’t we wish it on her? Let’s start by making sure she never works as a professor again (GWU has thankfully canceled all of her classes [7]). She really needs to be canceled to the point of never being allowed to breathe another word about politics in public for the rest of her life. And with all the dirt [8] people have been dishing [9] on her, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem.

Another delicious aspect of this scandal is how it perfectly illustrates the steaming pile of lies the Left is currently squatting upon. The races have fundamental differences in IQ and temperament, and these differences are largely genetic. By denying these biological truths, the Left must tie itself in knots justifying how it lifts blacks up to the level of whites or drags whites down to the level of blacks — all for the sake of an artificial equality. Blacks, according to Krug, now have such mystical essence, such numinosity, that they’ve suffered “[p]ain and trauma, injustice and violence” just because some Jewish girl from Overland Park, Kansas wanted to join their club a little too much for her own good. Blacks aren’t human to her — they’re oppressed gods and goddesses who demand the most ridiculous levels of obeisance. Can anyone imagine a light-skinned octaroon reaching a similar pitch of hysterics after passing for white in the segregated South?

And that so many of Krug’s fellow travelers actually believed her bullshit despite how pointedly not black and not Hispanic she looks only demonstrates how gullible and easily led these people really are — especially the black and Hispanic ones.

NOTE TO LEFTIES OF COLOR: Your leaders are playing you. They are feeding you pretty lies about equality and entitlement. They’re stirring you up into a lather so you can attack their political opponents and pave their way to power. Afterward, you will be worse off than you were before. Jess La Bombera may have broken kayfabe for a moment, but make no mistake, people like her are the rule, not the exception.

Of course, there are deeper, more ominous, levels of this. As a Jew, Krug professes the radical, nation-killing politics that her people made famous over a century ago when they helped destroy Russia and murder tens of millions. She also takes crypsis [11] to a whole other level. Jews, of course, have a rich history of pretending to be white when they need to or when it suits them. In this case, however, she accomplished the more impressive feat of pretending to be black (or, at least, an “Afro-Latina,” whatever that is). She also carries the Jewish trait of agitating the goyim with her radical agenda. She’s the Saul Alinsky of the barrio, and it would be foolish for her main victims — i.e., white people — not to draw this obvious connection.

One may ask me why I am piling on so mercilessly one someone who is clearly mentally ill. Krug herself claims that she’s been “battling some unaddressed mental health demons” her whole life. Shouldn’t we reserve at least some charity here?

No, we shouldn’t. We shouldn’t because of sentences like this:

I don’t believe that any anti-black life has inherent value.

Okay, so in writing this, Jessica Krug is basically greenlighting murder upon anyone she deems anti-black. According to today’s standards that would include not just white nationalists and race realists, but also people who speak about black crime or would rather not to send their kids to majority-black schools or would like to have an effective police force or would prefer not to be discriminated against through affirmative action. People with common sense and healthy racial interests, basically. Millions of them. All anti-black. If we extrapolate only a little bit from Krug’s statement, she seems to believe that the lives of millions of Americans have no inherent value. This is nothing less than genocidal thinking, made all the more dangerous given the instability of the person doing the thinking.

On the other hand, shouldn’t black men like Stephan Cannon or Ibrahim Yazeed also be considered to be anti-black? The former recently shot and killed [12] black St. Louis police captain David Dorn, and the latter kidnapped and murdered [13] the black-stepdaughter of MMA fighter Walt Harris. Both murders resulted in an innocent black dying. Would a radical partisan like Jessica Krug have the consistency of mind to consider these killers anti-black as well? Probably not.

As it was in the French Revolution and in the October Revolution, Leftists have fluid definitions of whose life has value and whose does not. In most cases, the closer one adheres to the leading political orthodoxy, the more value his life has. And the leading political orthodoxy can change depending upon whether we have a Lenin or a Trotsky or a Stalin in power. For Krug, it seems, if you’re pro-black — at least in her eyes — you’re all right. If not, then at best you’re suspect — and at worst, well, someone could kill you and she wouldn’t care.

This is what no inherent value means, Jessica. So please don’t be surprised if some pro-white people in this country decide one day that your life doesn’t have value. I sincerely hope that never happens, but, to be fair, they would only be visiting the same love on you as you visit on them.

Jessica, if you’re reading this, you can’t unshit the bed. But if you want any kind of redemption, don’t just apologize to the people you’ve lied to on the Left, apologize also to the people you’ve maligned on the Right. Someone’s life doesn’t lack value simply because they want safe, orderly neighborhoods, and police to protect them from criminals. Someone doesn’t deserve to die because they speak the truth about race. You must realize this and then get help.

Afterward, I would advise you to immigrate to the one place in the world where you could live a quiet life in obscurity: Israel. And pray to God the Israelis overlook your crack about the IDF. Because if they don’t take you, I’m afraid no one will.
