For Reactionary Dissenters, the proposition that the perfidious Jews are tunnelling under the house is called “sharing God’s love”

Like I say, the message of Reactionary Dissent is “Be afraid. Be very afraid!” No faith, hope or love that I can discern.

The Shadow Tradition lives in the article Cork references: the notion that “if it’s old, it’s part of apostolic Tradition”. Memo to the Lidless Eye crowd: sin, including the sin of hostility to Jews, is old. It’s not part of the Tradition.

“Oh, but we wuv Jews! We want to share with them the wuv of Jesus!” Right. That, no doubt, is why you defend Robert Sungenis, enthusiastic quoter of Nazi literature, ignorant expositor of Talmud, and, most egregiously, champion of the proposition that the Holocaust-denying Journal of Historical Review is “highly prestigious and credible”. Only a perfidious Jew like Sandra Miesel would doubt the wuv bubbling up from your hearts after that. Hence her inexplicable article about y’all in Crisis. As Ferrara sez of Miesel: “The Neo-Catholic press is at it again. Where even The Wanderer wouldn’t go, Crisis magazine rushes without a thought, quite obviously. Yes, now The Remnant is being accused by Crisis of being, you guessed it, anti-Semitic…the last resort of the unimaginative accuser who has no case.” Absolutely! No case at all! Endorsement of apologists for Holocaust-denial? What’s anti-semitic about that?

Oh, by the way, Nostra Aetate is not ambiguous, contrary to Ferrara. It’s perfectly clear:

True, the Jewish authorities and those who followed their lead pressed for the death of Christ;(13) still, what happened in His passion cannot be charged against all the Jews, without distinction, then alive, nor against the Jews of today. Although the Church is the new people of God, the Jews should not be presented as rejected or accursed by God, as if this followed from the Holy Scriptures. All should see to it, then, that in catechetical work or in the preaching of the word of God they do not teach anything that does not conform to the truth of the Gospel and the spirit of Christ.

and for all you “Social Kingship of Christ” theorists looking for a Caesaropapist state that will shove Jews back in the ghetto, there’s this:

We cannot truly call on God, the Father of all, if we refuse to treat in a brotherly way any man, created as he is in the image of God. Man’s relation to God the Father and his relation to men his brothers are so linked together that Scripture says: “He who does not love does not know God” (1 John 4:8).

No foundation therefore remains for any theory or practice that leads to discrimination between man and man or people and people, so far as their human dignity and the rights flowing from it are concerned.

The Church reproves, as foreign to the mind of Christ, any discrimination against men or harassment of them because of their race, color, condition of life, or religion. On the contrary, following in the footsteps of the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, this sacred synod ardently implores the Christian faithful to “maintain good fellowship among the nations” (1 Peter 2:12), and, if possible, to live for their part in peace with all men,(14) so that they may truly be sons of the Father who is in heaven.

Since I’ve never seen any evidence of love on the part of people like Ferrara and other piners for the One Ring, I am skeptical that their metallic theories for a Catholic Paradise on Earth are trustworthy.
