Barney Frank: Self-hating Jew
Rep. Barney Frank can no longer take for granted his core group of voters in his liberal district, the Jews of Brookline and Newton, Mass. The anti-Israel tilt of President Barack Obama as well as the anti-Israel attitudes of many on the far left, including those on the far Jewish left, have caused many liberal Jewish voters to reconsider their long-held allegiances. This is a phenomenon that is taking on a national coloration. At last the American Jewish community, traditionally liberal, is waking up and considering which policies are best for the future of America and Israel. Jews are at last tuning in to the true nature of their heritage and faith and it's about time.
Frank disgraced himself recently when he told the Boston Herald that Israel's defensive action in stopping an attempt by Hamas supporters to break the Gaza blockade made him feel ashamed to be a Jew. I agree with Barney Frank. As a Jew, I am also ashamed that Barney Frank is a Jew.
Frank is facing a serious challenger this November in Republican Sean Bielat. Mr. Bielat recently received a rousing and sustained round of applause at a Jewish event held by a group called Americans for Peace and Tolerance. Such a reception would have been unheard of at a Jewish event until recently. Sean Bielat is a Marine captain, a Harvard graduate, a businessman and a true conservative in a year in which the district and the country is turning toward conservative candidates as a means to balance the leftward shift of the Obama administration and the Reid-Pelosi Congress. Responding to Frank's comments to the Herald, Bielat stated, "Unlike Barney Frank, I'm not 'ashamed' of our closest ally in the Middle East when it uses legitimate and lawful action to protect its security." Republican Sen. Scott Brown recently carried Massachusetts' 4th Congressional District in a special election to fill the seat vacated by the late Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy.

Frank has a long history of screwing up everything he touches. On national security, Frank thought it was a progressive idea to strike the exclusion clause from the Immigration and Nationality Act. The passage of his bill in 1990, according to Clinton administration CIA directors James Woolsey and George Tenet, made it possible for terrorists to enter the United States with legal visas. On housing policy, Frank thought it was progressive to coerce banks into handing out mortgages to people who couldn't afford them and then to run interference for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when the mortgages started to go into default. This caused the single largest credit implosion in history and a bailout of Fannie and Freddie that involved the transfer of trillions of taxpayer dollars needed to prop up the mortgage collapse, a bailout that is still under way.
Besides criticizing Israel for stopping the terrorist flotilla, Frank also told the Herald that he wants Israel to strip a half a millions Jews from the West Bank. Given his sorry record of meddling in American national security and in the American domestic economy, it would be advisable for Israel to proceed with caution when it comes to accepting advice from Barney Frank. The man is a walking menace who should be retired and taken out of harm's way as soon as possible. While most Americans understand that Frank is an utter disgrace, he should also be viewed as an embarrassment by well-meaning liberals. The voters of the 4th Congressional District of Massachusetts will have their opportunity to retire Frank in just a couple of weeks and they have a credible and, indeed, an excellent candidate to vote for and elect in Sean Bielat.
The abovementioned filth is not a Jew, except, perhaps, by descent of his mother.
A casual reading of the Torah puts him and his sordid lifestyle well outside the limits of Judaism.
Many liberal pansies, (Jews or Gentiles), are getting sick of homosexuals. Why elect a simpleton who loves it when his ‘partner’ shoves his pee-pee in his poo-poo?
Does that sound like someone who could represent normal ideas on behalf of his constituency, or does it sound like a sick little idiot who should be thankful he hasn’t succumbed to AIDS? Think of what this little pervert does to his friend’s Pee-pee after it’s contacted Barney’s poo-poo.
Rational? Capable of rational thought? His actions prove he is an incompetent perverted little turd.
I SOOOO want this guy to be defeated in this election! Pray and donate to Sean Beliat....
A Jew that hates Iz-weeal?
it’s about time those captains of their own self destruction (Jews) wake up...
Doesn’t the word “Abomination” factor heavily into Barney’s relationship with Judaism?
Google: “Frank, Fannie, FDIC”
I would be surprised if Bwaney gets less than 80% of the Jewish vote in this race. Sad, I know.
Jewish friends rationalize their allegiance to the Democrats by analogizing the Republicans to the Nazis. Of course, all the prominent antisemites in this country have been Democrats. And even the most casual review of the policies of the National Socialist German Workers Party demonstrates that they are much closer to the positions of current self proclaimed “progressives” (cf. Goldberg, J.).
I’m just an American, I vote based on the mass of issues that affect my homeland, and my fellow Americans, my communities, my daily life, my constitutional freedoms, my American culture.
Most homosexuals are self hating. Their suicide rates are the highest of any demographic for age.
King, “abomination” is the key word for how Bawney lives.
Lonesome, as a former MA resident, I understand your frustration well.
Unfortunately, my joy living in New Hampshire was short-lived, since we’ve been overrun by collectivists and statists from Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
Probably the #1 congressional jerk I would most like to see defeated....with Charlie Rangel a close second.
> Their suicide rates are the highest of any demographic for age.
Haven’t you heard? That’s *YOUR* fault, because you oppose “gay” marriage, and you oppose promoting things like sodomy, fisting, gerbilling, and golden showers in the government schools.
Well you cannot go against nature and expect the balance of ones life to remain normal. This behavior affects everything in the body including the mind.
My company used to have plants in New Hampshire. Joy it would be to get a job there. It I move there, I get a longer commute and get to pay higher real estate tax and the same high Massachusetts income tax. Sucks.
Absolute worst of both worlds, tax-wise, to live in NH and work in MA.
I still don’t understand how it’s constitutional for one state to tax the income of the resident of another state, REGARDLESS of where they earn their money.
Here in NH, the ownership of the Portsmouth Naval Ship Yard has been in contention for years. NH said they own it, Maine said they own it. Maine has an income tax (8%!), and they were taxing the NH residents who work in the ship yard.
The Portsmouth Naval Yard is in Portsmouth Harbor, the harbor that separates Portsmouth, NH, from Kittery, Maine.
Guess to whom the Supreme Court gave the Ship Yard. Yup, the taxing state of Maine. It just seems that the SCOTUS almost always rules to screw the working man.
Despite the commute, life is good.
Despite all the attacks on homeschooling up here in NH, despite the attacks on private property, despite the vast increases in fees, all of which have been initiated since they DemonRATS came to power here, they haven’t dared to touch gun regulation.
Gun regulation is the 3rd rail in NH.
I thought the New York vs. New Jersey case over Bedloe’s Island was even funnier. When I grew up in New York City, we all “knew” that the Statue of Liberty Illuminating the World stood on Bedloe’s Island, which while in New York Harbor, was actually in the great and sovereign State of New Jersey.
New York sued in the Supreme Court, and the SCOTUS, in their serene and Solomonic wisdom ruled that, indeed, as Rand-MacNalley had long held, Bedloe’s Island was, in fact, in New Jersey. But they cut out a small Danzig corridor in Bedloe’s Island that encompasses the Statue and the National Park gift shop and awarded it to New York, more specifically, New York City. So sales tax collected at the NPS gift shoppe is rendered unto Bloomberg. In-friggin’-credible. Whatta country!
I glommed onto this legal fiction when I was watching "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" with my grandson. The question was, "In what state is the Statue of Liberty" (leaving off "Illuminating the World"). I was so shocked by the "correct" answer that I googleWikipedia-ed the topic and found the highly unexpected answer.
As far as I am concerned, SCOTUS is NOT "smarter than a fifth grader".
> As far as I am concerned, SCOTUS is NOT “smarter than a fifth grader”.
I wholeheartedly agree.
I think SCOTUS decisions should have been required to be supermajority, like 7 of 9. I might even have liked to see it be unanimous, which would make these grand solons work and study all the harder to arrive at decisions.
Problem is, litigants need a decision. I suppose one could let lower court rulings stand in the absence of a SCOTUS decision, but then they might get endless litigated in other jurisdictions.
Revisit the 5-4 decisions over the last 50 years.
How many of them favor constitutional original intent or even just plain common sense? By my reckoning, precious few.
The test for SCOTUS review must be more stringent, and lower court cases must stand in the absence of a SCOTUS review or decision.
