Alice Walker, the War Against the Jews, and Human Sacrifice

Pages: 1 2

My mother is very ideologically based, and her ideology is much more important in many ways than her personal relationships.” – Rebecca Walker.

In the 1960s, The Color Purple novelist and activist Alice Walker married a Jewish man and gave birth to a biracial baby, Rebecca. Now more than 40 years later, the couple is long-divorced, the mother and half-Jewish daughter are estranged, and the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Alice is the celebrity sponsor of a movement committed to the destruction of the Jewish state. How could Alice make such a profound shift from joining a Jewish family to aiding in the Jewish people’s annihilation? Perhaps it is not that Alice changed. Rather, the political religion that served as her anchor suffered a radical devolution since the colorblind dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In 1967, Alice was an aspiring novelist, poet, and political activist who married Mel Leventhal, a Jewish civil rights attorney whose parents fled the Holocaust. The couple chose to relocate from New York City to Jackson, Mississippi, a provocative act given that miscegenation laws had just recently been overturned in Loving vs Virginia. Leventhal spent many nights awake with a shotgun should the Klan choose to come after them. In November of 1969, Rebecca was born, and she notes in her 2001 memoir, Black White and Jewish, that it was “seventeen months after Dr. King was shot.”

The union of Alice and Mel was not to last. In 1976 the couple divorced. The seeds of the failed marriage can be seen in the ideological shifts of the period. The 1970s saw both of Alice’s movements take much harder, Marxist turns. The Civil Rights cause under King’s leadership was one of interracial unity. By 1976 Black Power was the dominant message and a white, Jewish husband was viewed with suspicion. The Feminist movement had also grown more radical, influencing Alice to resent her role as wife and mother. In an article for the Daily Mail in 2008, Rebecca described a traumatic discovery:

I was 16 when I found a now-famous poem she wrote comparing me to various calamities that struck and impeded the lives of other women writers. Virginia Woolf was mentally ill and the Brontes died prematurely. My mother had me  –  a ‘delightful distraction’, but a calamity nevertheless. I found that a huge shock and very upsetting.

This left-inspired rejection of motherhood pervaded Rebecca’s rocky adolescence moving forward. Her parents came up with an unusual arrangement that only exacerbated the feelings of isolation she already had as a biracial child. From elementary through high school Rebecca went back and forth between the Bohemian artist world of her San Francisco-based mother and the more stable middle class Jewish life of her father in New York. She would spend two years building herself and her identity only to have to leap back across the country to reinvent herself.

Black White and Jewish depicts such a life not just in its story but in its tone and style as well. The book is more than 300 pages of fragmentary childhood and adolescent recollections. The average chapter is only a few pages long and the voice maintained throughout is one of a scared child unable to piece together a coherent narrative of the life forced upon her by “movement” parents. It’s not until the last 30 pages that Rebecca finally starts to provide some insights into the chaotic life her parents provided.

Alice putting her leftist ideology before her parental responsibilities had very real consequences. Since her parents rarely set any boundaries for her, Rebecca experimented with drugs and sex early on. At 14, Rebecca had an abortion, an event she describes as something that traumatized her:

Although I believe that an abortion was the right decision for me then, the aftermath haunted me for decades. It ate away at my self-confidence and, until I had Tenzin, I was terrified that I’d never be able to have a baby because of what I had done to the child I had destroyed. For feminists to say that abortion carries no consequences is simply wrong.

It was the birth of Rebecca’s first child, Tenzin, in 2004 that would finally collapse the already-shaky relationship between a Pulitzer-prize-winning mother and her “calamity” of a daughter. Just as Alice saw her own marriage and Rebecca’s birth primarily as political acts, she also brought this same approach to Tenzin, her grandchild. Rebecca’s choice of parenthood over more time for writing and political activism is a rejection of her mother’s ideology.

      In 1965, Walker met Melvyn Rosenman Leventhal, a Jewish civil rights lawyer. They were married on March 17, 1967 in New York City. Later that year the couple relocated to Jackson, Mississippi, becoming "the first legally married inter-racial couple in Mississippi".[23][24] They were harassed and threatened by whites, including the Ku Klux Klan. The couple had a daughter Rebecca in 1969. Walker and her daughter became estranged. Walker and her husband divorced amicably in 1976.[25]

  • Andy Gill

    Alice Walker sounds sick in her soul.

  • Amused

    Alice Walker should not even be mentioned in the same sentence as MLK .Her marriage to a Jew in the 60's must indeed have been borne of "movements " ,since it was predominately jews , who spearheaded the Freedom Riders , voting rights in the South for Blacks , what better than to marry a Jew ? She may have shared that view on racism in the US at that time , but NEVER has she shared the view of MLK towards Israel , who even back then KNEW and STATED , that the term "Zionist " meant-JEW and was indicative of anti-semitism , Jew hatred ,AND WAS WRONG . MLK was PRO-ISRAEL , all his public and private life right up until his murder .

    • aspacia

      And MLK ws also a Republican:-)

      • trickyblain

        When he was young and the Republican party was still seen as the Party of Lincoln.

        He was most assuredly not a Republican in the lead up to and aftermath of the CRA of 64.

        • aspacia

          Registered Republican, but supported JFK and RFK.

      • Amused

        That may very well be , but he was a man of God and a man of Courage FIRST .He was considered an enemy by racists ,both Republican AND Democrats , and of course J.Edgar Hoover and the F.B.I .

    "Anti-Zionism = Anti-Semitism"
    – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
    ". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews–this is God's own truth.
    "Antisemitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently antisemitic, and ever will be so.

    "Why is this? You know that Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land. The Jewish people, the Scriptures tell us, once enjoyed a flourishing Commonwealth in the Holy Land. From this they were expelled by the Roman tyrant, the same Romans who cruelly murdered Our Lord. Driven from their homeland, their nation in ashes, forced to wander the globe, the Jewish people time and again suffered the lash of whichever tyrant happened to rule over them.

  • Amused

    "How easy it should be, for anyone who holds dear this inalienable right of all mankind, to understand and support the right of the Jewish People to live in their ancient Land of Israel. All men of good will exult in the fulfilment of God's promise, that his People should return in joy to rebuild their plundered land. __This is Zionism, nothing more, nothing less. __"And what is anti-Zionist? It is the denial to the Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly claim for the people of Africa and freely accord all other nations of the Globe. It is discrimination against Jews, my friend, because they are Jews. In short, it is antisemitism.

    • aspacia

      No different than Greeks inhabiting their ancient land in Greece.

      • intrcptr2

        And who took that from them?

        • Amused

          Indeed . What country sits on CONQUERED land , discriminates against it's conquered , and that same country -A MUSLM COUNTRY divides Cyprus ? You guessed it TURKEY .

          • aspacia

            Thanks for answering for me:-)

  • Amused

    "The antisemite rejoices at any opportunity to vent his malice. The times have made it unpopular, in the West, to proclaim openly a hatred of the Jews. This being the case, the antisemite must constantly seek new forms and forums for his poison. How he must revel in the new masquerade! He does not hate the Jews, he is just 'anti-Zionist'!

    "Let my words echo in the depths of your soul: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews–make no mistake about it."

    …and please take note of the date MLK's statement was made – Aug.1967 / The USS LIBERTY was attacked by Israeli jets June 1967 . I remember both clearly . MLK , a man of courage , he had his faults , but a true man of God , who had the prescience to KNOW , he would eventually be killed .

    • Bert

      Note that the USS Liberty was on a secret mission to use its extensive intelligence gathering capabilities to help the Egyptian army to kill more Jews in wartime. John Loftus in the book "The Secret War Against the Jews" explains the details of this secret rogue mission by the NSA. President Johnson ordered the Sixth Fleet to aid the Liberty and planes were launched. However, Israel exposed the plot in time and Johnson ordered the recall of the planes. Johnson was not implicated in this betrayal of Israel. But to this day the U.S. intelligence community refuses to release all the records of who ordered this mission and what was its purpose. We can surmise that the purpose was to secretly help Egypt against Israel to show them that we were really on their side.

      • EVABeliever

        Bert: The Liberty's data collection was being given to the British on Cypress who then gave it to the Egyptians. Plausible deniability all around. Scoring points with the Egyptians would enable the Brits to buy oil at cheaper prices. Nowadays, Israel bashers use the "accident" cover-up as fodder thinking that revealing the attack as premeditated proves Israel is not a good ally. Israel should have come clean at the time and exposed the duplicitous nature of the Liberty's mission. By lying then to protect America's reputation Israel is paying the price in PR damage today. As an American I hate that our troops were killed but I blame the deaths on the Anti-Semitic State department and the CIA.

      • Amused

        I read the book Bert , and it's TRUE .Those US sailors were victims of the duplicity in the NSA , the ship's Captain wasn't calling the shots , the orders to sail towards rather than away from Israel ,came from the spooks BELOW DECK , and what the Liberty was transmitting to the British and inturn the Egyptians was the Israeli tank commands , which almost caused Israel the war in the South . That is why the IAF strafed the Liberty's antennas , after TWO warning flyovers , the transmission persisted thus the Liberty was put out of commission .Not coincidentally the Egyptian Forces which were assembling for a counter attack , stood down after the transmission from the Liberty were stopped . Noi Johnson did not know initially , but when he found out , that is why the Squdron from a nearby US Carrier were launched to aid the Liberty , but were abruptly RECALLED . You got it 100% right Bert .

        • Amused

          As do you EVA , I didn't want to elaborate because to this day there is bitternesss by the survivors, some of which have gone on a P.R.Crusade against Israel . They had no idea of why they were attacked .And no one will ever tell them , as even Israel is bound to secrecy regarding the treachery involved against them , by the USS Liberty .{NSA/CIA}. I did bring it up to show that EVEN amongst the bitterness that summer MLK , spoke for Israel . I am glad that there are atleast some in the US , that have bothered to investigate that action , which was totally illogical in every respect , to those who do not know the truth .

    • aspacia

      Just curious Amused, but what cause your shift in tone and rhetoric?

      • Amused

        In regards to what subject aspacia ? I do not engage in Rhetoric …EVER . I am beholding to no political party nor ideology . I honor men of courage , I love my country and Israel , I disdain hypocrisy , hatred-politik , lies , fear mongering , political parroting and the like . I speak my own mind , rather than repeating the thoughts of others . Ergo , will always find some common ground with either of the two sides .But I buy nothing wholesale ,lock stock and barrel .

        • Choi

          and you're obviously a good & decent American with the CORRECT VALUES.
          Supporting Israel is the mark of a good human being ,because there is NOBODY that can be both a good person and a supporter of the efforts of VICIOUS SAVAGES to DESTROY ISRAEL& KILL THE JEWS.
          If anybody in their right mind can see any merit in THE WAR ON THE JEWS,THAT person is EVIL.
          ANY RELIGION,that has as a MAJOR TENET ,SLAUGHTERING JEWS & OTHER INFIDELS,WELL,need I connect the ………….any further.?

          • Amused

            Evil indeed Choi , Jew hatred, in addition to being sick of mind , is a disease of the spirit , and once passing into adulthood is rarely curable . Only remission to "subtlety " , is the best one can expect from such human beings .

      Alice Walker is not sick nor is she in danger… she is a mean, evil woman and does not even deserve the right time of day.

  • steven l

    A self-centered mad woman given too much importance by mass media.
    She would not exist had she not met Jews. Fighting Jews becomes the only reason of her perverted life.
    Fighting Jews seems like of a symbol of greatness!
    Motherhood is a fundamental pillar of Judaism. She was a NO mother. It says a lot about her.
    She renegaded her fundamental obligation like many others on the left preferring a life of NO responsibilities.
    Typically the opposite of what Judaism teaches.

    Like many of them she is a cheat. A self-hater.

  • Daren

    Sad sad sad ! May the God of Abraham,Isaac,and Jacob heal her sick, suffering soul. Ms. Walker apparently has been afflicted her entire life as an " Outsider" living in an existential quandary. She'll be tormented with this dilemma until she finds God, a loving Father. As a black American, I understand her condition. I've been there! Most black nationalist/marxist/muslims ect. are imperiled with this psych/ideological blindness. Even Malcolm the hero of my youth. Ironically, it is the Jew that she should logically identify with very strongly.Pray for her. May God bless her daughter and grandson. Check out the "Outsider" by Richard Wright.

  • sononthe_beach

    Alice Walker is a gadfly of no particular consequence, resting on the laurels of her famous book she is but the literary equivalent of a one-shot wonder. And I have always had disrespect for parents who disregard their children.

  • Chezwick_mac

    David makes two references in the article to Alice's support for the "FGM movement". I assume this infers her possible opposition to the custom of female genital mutilation being practiced with tragic regularity in the Islamic world. Strange sidelight for a rabid anti-Semite.

    Anyway, David hits the nail on the head in his conclusion: When a black man is elected President of the supposedly "institutionally racist" USA, who or what is left for the grievance industry to demonize? What "wounds of discontent" can be "rubbed raw"? The answer is obviously Israel.

    One gets the distinct impression that this 'champion of the oppressed' disowned her own daughter not over political issues (the daughter appears to be largely apolitical), but over the daughter's "crime" of having Jewish blood. The vileness of racism knows no bounds.

    •!/daveswindle DavidSwindle

      FGM is short for Free Gaza Movement. Walker was involved in fighting against female genital mutilation for several years but she hasn't done anything with the issue in at least a decade.

      • Chezwick_mac

        Thanks for the clarification.

    • Lady_Dr

      It's more than having Jewish blood. If there is one thing the feminist despite it is motherhood. Her rejection of her daughter is on multiple levels. Wish I knew more about her upbringing which is probably a very ugly story – why else would anyone turned to the souless Left. I've met a lot of Leftist and underneath they are really horrible people, self-loathing, insecure, and angry. Always angry.

      • Choi

        You got that right Lady Doc.
        What's really a disconnect are the LEFTY LIMOSINE LIBERALPROGRESSIVES who drive Mercedes' & Lexus',go home to GATED COMMUNITIES or High-rises with Doormen.

        • welldoneson

          Lefties are angry from habit. Much of their academic and post-academic life consists of "go along to get along". In a milieu where the hard left has, by design, pretty much elbowed rational discourse aside, that means being a fairly hardline lefty without giving it too much thought.

    I cannot imagine a more wasted life than Alice's with the pain & suffering she puts her family through!

    It has always been an odd thing that people hate Jews? It is against all common sense and actually against one's own self interest. It is a person going backwards and upside down, fighting against their best interests. Very, very foolish.
    It is the Lord's decision to bless the world through the Jewish people. This is the method that HE chose for mankind. His decisions are always right and of the best order for us. Why should people reject His decisions and by doing so, reject His blessings for them? Yes, He could have used many other means to implement His wishes; but this is the one He chose and we need to stand with all His decisions.

    if you watch the Eternal Jew you realize that the Nazis played upon the German's having been on the land for centuries and then the Jews show up and put them to shame economically and intellectually. Blacks have been here prior to the Declaration of Ind. and are still poor and living with each other wherein most Jews trace back only several generations. Farrakhan played on this.

    • nina

      Please, would you red a book. Germans being on the land for centuries and Jews showing up at the last minute? Ignorant person. From your name I conclude that you are a Jew. But an ignorant Jew who has no idea about his history. Jews came to Germany with the Roman legions. Not exactly newcomers. "Blecks were here before the Declaration of Ind." Really? Jews came here when Stuyvesant was governor. What does all this have to do with the subject we are talking about? As I said, read a book.

    What a contrast there is between Alice and Rebecca on the one hand, and David Horowitz and his late daughter on the other. D.H.'s daughter was somewhat of a leftist, while DH himself rejected the left. But in rejecting socialism and left-wing politics, DH NEVER rejected his daughter.

    What would Alice Walker do, if the political correctness movement were to do a 180 degree turn on the matter of women, marriage and motherhood? Would she then reject political correctness, or would she be a good functionary and accept whatever the current party line is today regardless of what it was yesterday?

  • Amused

    I would agree with present estimations of who Walker has morphed into , and what indeed she is today -an anti-semite . But I'll say it again , The Book "the color purple " has nothing to do with racism other than it's true backdrop of those times in Georgia . ANYONER who has read the book , seen the movie or even read notes on either , would SURELY KNOW , that the main theme of the book is about the abuse of women by blackmen themselves , and ironically the slavery they were put under by the main "bad guy " a blackman , the abuse by a blackman , the treachery of that same man .Any mentions of whites was purely , an incidental and TRUE fact of the times and setting in which the story was set . And it is quite obvious , that any criticism of that book is borne out of pure ignorance , since I doubt anyone here has read it . Horowitz is dead on, on the personal real Character in which Walker has become or even may have always been . But the book remains a commendable literary work .

      • tanstaafl

        Do you feel bad for Rebecca? If not, why not? Will you disavow your children if they take different political positions than yours? Notice I used the modifier "far" to describe the term left. I am referring to communists.

        Is life better for children in North Korea or South Korea? China or Taiwan? Cuba or Florida? I could go into Obama's childhood, but that's like shooting fish in a barrel. Why don't you read Horowitz's book "Radical Son"? Children of the revolution are tiny soldiers for the cause, easily sacrificed for the leftist victory.

    I wonder how many Lefties realize that white supremacists and neo-Nazis are on the same side they are when it comes to Israel. -endquote

    I dont really nderstand what kind of point you're trying to make , aside from denigrating and making a fool of yourself . BTW- I'm not a leftie OR a righty , and of course! I know that neo-nazis and white supremacists ARE on the same side when it comes to Israel -AND JEWS – they hate BOTH . Dont hurt yourself CHUMP.

  • Amused

    And might I add , mah29001 , just so you remain an informed bigot and racist , there has been an alarming number of arrests and convictions amongst members and Leaders of several far right screwballs for statutory rape , pedophilia , rape , sexual harrassment of minors ,and forced sodomy on minors .But hey don't take my word for it …..Google it .
    I'm not surprised though , for as I stated earlier JEW HATE , your trademark , is a disease of the soul , and thus is not limited to merely hating and wishing ill for Jews and Israel , whoite supremacist and neo-nazi groups have long been noted for violence against their critics , and I guess sexual abuse and pedophilia are just side bars in their repertoire .

  • Rabbi Michael Lerner

    Swindle is the right name for the author of this piece. He puts my title Rabbi in quotes, as though it too should be doubted. Yet I received my smicha (rabbinic ordination) the same way most rabbis throughout Jewish history, all all Hasidic rabbis today, received it–from a Beyt Din (rabbinic court) of 3 orthodox rabbis. I've learned that when you read a story in the media and you know one part to be deceptive or false, don't trust other parts. Which is why I've learned not to trust anything on Front Page, since everything they've ever written about me, and there's plenty, has been wildly distorted if not overtly deceptive or false. The hatred spewing from this right-wing website stands in stark contrast to the way we write at Tikkun–in which we never attack people, but only challenge ideas. That's why we refused to print any of the standard ridicule of George Bush when he was in office, critiquing harshly his policies but never putting him down as a human being or addressing issues about how he spoke or how intelligent he was or was not. Similarly, for the same reason, we've never responded to the personal attacks on me from David Horowitz or others from this site, because we don't want to sink to that level, though they have been, like the innuendo from Swindle, libelous and distorted.

      Sorry Mr Lerner but the word Rabbi (as I'm sure you know) means teacher and judging from what I've seen of the material you publish on Tikkun, you are not deserving of that title. This article for instance… is all about fighting for the rights of people who want to boycott, divest or invoke sanctions against Israel. Then there's this one… which slams Bibi Netanyahu for sticking up for the rights of Israel in the face of Obama's attempts to shrink it back to its suicide borders and then goes on to call for Palestinian membership of the UN. I understand your parents survived the Holocaust Mr Lerner – so did mine and my wife's (we're the children of Polish Jews). You should be ashamed to call yourself a Jew, much less a Rabbi. Jews like myself have learned to put up with rubbish from Gentile antisemites but nothing is more distressing than witnessing Jewish ideologues of the left who behave like useful idiots in service of the enemies of Jews and our homeland Israel.

      "…the way we write at Tikkun–in which we never attack people, but only challenge ideas."

      Yup. That's why you open this comment with the remark:

      "Swindle is the right name for the author of this piece."

      But to more relevant things… Whether you're a real rabbi or not isn't the main problem, it's that you give a hippy-dippy "Love is all you need" treatment to Israel's conflict with a multitude of bloodthirsty savages—Arab settler-colonist invaders who wish to steal everything the Zionist Jews have worked to build in Palestine for over a century.

      If I'm guilty of disrespect toward a real rabbi, then just know that I have the same attitude toward the rabbis of Neturei Karta. To side with or even show sympathy to Israel's enemies is inexcusable, rabbi or not.

    • MixMChess

      Mr. Lerner, perhaps David Swindle went a little over the line by not putting your title as Rabbi in quotes. However, I think we can both understand Mr. Swindle's reservations of addressing you as a Rabbi considering your un-Rabbi-like acts such as defaming and attacking Alan Dershowitz, falsifying letters to the editor to your own magazine, inciting riots during your activist days in the 60's, your support for Israel's enemies (see Rachel Corrie, Richard Goldstone to name a few) and your general animosity towards Israel's quest for peace.

  • Amused

    Rabbi , when I click on your highlighted name on page 2 of this article by Swindle , a long list of activities , associations , remarks, actions and statements are attributed to you . My question : are they true ?
    Have your views on Israel and palestinians changed since then ? At the age of 13, I was aware of Israel and it's situation [1963] , my parents were very mild on any politics and I was uninfluenced in forming my own conclusions . I read , observed and read , parsing at that age ,the lies from the truth , which is no great feat for anyone who can comprehend the written word .Thus I was unaffected by the radicals and the rhetoric of the 60's , even in college .Having lived through that period , being both drafted into the Army and being a "long hair " , my views on Israel and my country never waivered nor were they coerced .I love BOTH. So I am naturally curious about "changlings " and whether or not they are infact such .

    Alice Walker, like all leftists, must always find a group to hate. Hatred is not a state of being or an emotion it's the fuel that moves them toward their goal. Since her daughter has written a memoir describing her mother abandoning her for the cause, I wonder what Alice's early life was like. Perhaps she has a story also of abandonment.. She just chose a different path. And people should be very careful of emulating MLK, Jr..-his social justice,Marxist message has led to all kinds of havoc. Sometimes a flawed reformer, well-meaning but with a great following, can be worse than a fanatic.

  • Amused

    You're all wet guest .Martin Luthor King was not by any means a marxist , a tag that is rather too easily applied to people , considered left of center , and in MLK's case , just plain ole' BIGOTS .If the shoe fits ,guest , then wear it .

  • Amused

    You know nothing of social justice ,or it's meaning in regards to the life and times of MLK . Go educate yourself before spouting anymore foolishness about MLK. Of course this is America , where people [ like you ]can be as dumb as they wanna be .

    please read this article, which gives more information on the matter of alice walker and her interest in Palestinian affairs:

    This is a most fascinating insight into the Alice Walker phenom.

    It’s hard to find educated individuals on this subject, but you sound like you already know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  • Amused

    If you do not know the difference between MLK and Jackson ,Rangel and Sharpton then you are a MEGA-IGNORAMUS . Plain and simple , go out a buy a new brain , the one you got is broken . FOOL !

  • michiganruth

    yeah, that was a really dumb comment. King was most definitely NOT about "putting his people on top"–he was about equality for ALL people. (he was also a Republican–something the MSM rarely mentions.)

    if you can't tell the difference between MLK Jr and "Tawana" Sharpton, I feel sorry for you.

  • Amused

    Indeed !! And Sharpton and his phony Lawyer [forgot his name ] have yet to APOLGIZE to the man, whose life and career they ruined in the Tawana Brawly HOAX.

    We stopped the last "Free Constantinople" flotilla in the 1820s – that flotilla was the Russian Navy who would have helped capture that city, and Constantinople could have been Greek – but for the British, who wanted to 'maintain the balance of power' by propping up an evil empire.
