Skip to comments.Boston Jews abandon Obama
Posted on 09/21/2008 4:30:30 PM PDT by pabianice
DISCLAIMER: the following is based upon a large birthday party in Boston for my cousin. All of us are Jewish. There were way more than 20 of us there, satisfying the requirement of the central limit theorem for statistical reliability. This took place in Boston, the East Coast capital of lunatic liberalism. All comments and conclusions are mine.
My wife and I were at a large birthday party last night in Boston for a cousin. The talk soon turned to politics. As a conservative Jew I have become accustomed to hearing the worst sort of lies about McCain and Palin, many unrepeatable in public or to children. By the same token, comments from my family about Obama started the season as almost worshipful; Obama was the Chosen One to lead Liberalism from the wilderness while banishing the evil Bushies and their minions. What a surprise last night.
There remained one staunch Obama supporter in the group of us cousins and close friends. She will hear no complaint about Obama and says, in a loud voice, that Bush is Worse than Hitler. (How an educated Jew can say that mystifies me and tells me just how far has fallen Reform Jewery in its education, ability to think, and sense of reality). But the rest of the group was a surprise. "Jennie," a woman who had been at the forefront of the anti-U.S. movement in the late 60s and had angrily taken-down from her parents mantle my picture in Navy uniform, now confided in me that she could never vote for Obama, 'a clear racist.' She, a former fervent anti-gun agitator, astounded me with her telling, in a soft voice so as not be be overheard, that she had become an NRA member, had received her LTC, and packed a Beretta .32 in her purse nowadays. That gave me the opportunity to discuss the relative merits of the AMT Backup .380 I will not visit Boston without and that was snug in my pocket holster at the moment. I was just recovering from that conversation when a much older aunt told me that her Jewish friends in Florida had turned away from Obama, his crazy minister, his Muslim friends, and his saying that Jerusalem had to be "divided" with the homicidal Palestinians. Obama is going to have a very bad Jewish day in Florida on November 5. Then another cousin -- a lawyer and CPA -- and I talked about business, and he went on at some length about how clueless Obama and Biden are about how to help business. He was perplexed at their ignorance and socialist leanings. Two other female cousins said they couldn't support McCain but were writing-in Hillary because they couldn't vote for Obama. Still another cousin said Obama is "an empty suit" and that she will not vote for him. She may stay home but she won't vote for Obama. A cousin in from Berkeley, CA, also said she couldn't support Obama and his crypto anti-Semitism and didn't know who'd she vote for. An elderly cousin said that Obama's refusal to actually lay-out any potential policies left her confused. Finally, another older cousin told me privately that Obama and his advisers just plain scare him.
This is an unscientific but highly interesting sample of Boston Jews who should be Obama's biggest supporters. They aren't.
Thank you for sharing and happy new year!
Anyone at the party who was carrying was in violation of the law in Mass. My husband hates to even drive through Mass., let alone stop there for even a potty stop!
No handguns allowed. None. Someone here will tell me if I’m wrong.....
What do they know that my New York City jewish friends don’t know?
I will accept the fact that someone will vote for McCain-Palin with an anger or protest motive, but I have to admit, I find it disturbing.
How on earth, apart from sexism, could someone vote for a ticket with Palin on it as an alternative to Clinton? If there was a ruler with Obama at beginning of the ruler and Palin at the 12” mark, Clinton would be at the 2 - 2 1/2” mark.
She is as committed to socialism and Marxism as Obama, but she has simply found out how much of it can be revealed to the electorate and keeps it under wraps as much as possible.
Obama has found this out too, but his trail is far too fresh.
This boggles my mind.
Not true, trimom. I have a license to carry concealed. You can get it in this state, but you have to go through your police chief in your town or city. It is up to them.
I think this is unconstitutional, but that is the way it is, and...I do have a permit.
Works for me. Lets do it ;)
Of course they felt this way before Palin was even selected, but the Palin factor is the icing on the cake.
Wouldn't work 100%, but better than building a wall to keep them out. If necessary, set up a blockade and search everything going in and out for a few generations until they cool off.
They'd never accept an island
They wouldn't have a choice. After a few generations it will become the apple of their eye. Would they ever be completely content? No, they have intense animalistic hatred that is taught to them from the time they first learn to speak. But, they can sit there and stare across the ocean with all the hatred they can muster and hope somebody on the other side feels it.
After 200 years on the island the foolish talk about some land somewhere where their great-great-great-great-grandparents owned some land will become like a fable to the young and it will fade away.
Plus, it is the ONLY thing that is going to work. I have been saying and posting this for years. You can't negotiate with the kind of rabid animal that would strap explosives on a 15 year old girl and send her off to die... just to make some kind of point.
No one ever followed up on the suggestion...
From your lips to G-d’s ears!
I was talking to my bil (no religion, but he used to be a very conservative guy- he has lots of money and wanted to keep it), and he said he is going to vote for O! I was so shocked, and concerned that if (former) conservatives with money are going for the hype, we are doomed!
Thank you. I was sure a FRiend would set me straight. Here is PA our state constitution says the right “shall not be questioned”. That hasn’t stopped Fast Eddie Rendell from trying danged hard to do something.....
Obama will lose in a landslide.
I’m all for that but when are the polls going to start reflecting this?
Most likely the very last one.
Good to hear. First New York, now Boston. Not looking good for Barry.
Many small towns in MA grant LTC-As — license to carry a concealed handgun. MA law mandates any one LTC to be good in ALL of MA. It’s one mistake the gun-grabbers made in the law. My cousin and I can legally carry in Boston and anywhere else in the state. It’s Boston RESIDENTS who must remain defenseless before the city’s armed thugs.
