An odd affinity

Insofar as the mob operates outside the ordinary organs of institutional power and is comprised of those who see themselves as disenfranchised, the mob and the Jews have an odd affinity working. 
Because the Jews can be understood to wish to operate as the mob does, it is easy for the mob to invent scenarios where the Jews have succeeded where the mob only aspires – to organize something like a 'secret Judah' that is able to dominate national or world affairs. 
The mob is susceptible to rumor and superstition – the most basic elements of the politics of distraction.
