The Jean Améry meme
Améry also appears in the Your Revolution is No Liberation reader, writing presciently in the 1960s on the resurgence of respectable left/liberal antisemitism:
“The classic phenomenon of anti-Semitism is taking a new shape. The old one still exists, this I call coexistence….To be clear: anti-Semitism, included in anti-Zionism as the thunderstorm is part of the cloud, is again respectable.”“Anti-Semitism was once the socialism of the stupid guys. Today it is about to become an integrating ingredient of socialism as such, and thereby every socialist turns himself, by his free will, into a stupid guy. Anti-Semitism has become respectable again, but there is no such thing as respectable anti-Semitism!”
