I reply to "In the 1920s and 1930s, the confiscation of Jewish assets in Germany and elsewhere signaled the start of the Holocaust, a period that is built into Jews’ DNA” as an explanation of horror, eetc., at a Labour proposal to raise taxes on the rich.
Well, I don't live in the UK and I don't know, but suppose it is true (or suppose it is widely believed in the UK) that the only people rich enough to be caught by the proposed tax are wealthy Jews. In that case, the proposed tax may properly be thought of as a proposed wealth-tax on Jews,
If, as seems more likely, UK has lots of non-Jewish wealth, then this argument is hogwash. And, in either case, a tax on wealth doesn't single out Jews even if (in effect) only Jews are hit by the tax.
Some new progressive Congressfolks in the USA are proposing a 70% marginal income tax. Is anyone complaining here in the USA that this proposal would be a tax specifically on Jews?
