Love Is Blind, Deaf, and Dumb (American Jews remain clueless about the Democratic Party.)
The American Spectator ^ | May 6, 2005 | Jackie Mason & Raoul Felder

Posted on 05/05/2005 9:12:36 PM PDT by quidnunc

If Jews know better than anybody else what kind of an unbalanced mind it takes to produce the sickness of prejudice, why do they so comfortably practice it themselves by making a special target of prejudice any member of the Republican Party, especially if he is recognized as a far-right Republican? Somehow Jews have all always been enraptured by the words "liberal" or "Democrat." We convinced ourselves that the word "liberal" and "Jew" is a package made in heaven, ordained by God like a marriage, consecrated till death do us part. Love may be blind, but does it also have to be deaf and dumb — which it must be for Jews who can't recognize the contempt many liberals have for them.

The story of Harry Truman is a perfect example. Jews are still blinded from the reality of Harry Truman's real character, and possessed of a romanticized version of his love for the Jewish people. Whenever a Jew opened his mouth, the story of Truman's Jewish partner in the haberdashery business came flying through his teeth, blinded to the fact that Truman not only found Jews distasteful and repulsive but even thought of his Jewish partner as a burden he had to bear because he couldn't find any gentile in town who would trust him with his cash. It is a historical fact that Truman never invited his partner to his home, never even asked him if he was happy or healthy; he only cared if his hand could move enough to sign a check.

I live in south florida and see this first hand on a daily basis. Some of my own family members are the same way. The elders still think it's JFKs party. They don't have a clue about the vile anti-Semites that infect their party at the highest levels.

So true. The Jews in this country should support the Republicans, if for no other reason, than being able to answer back with a gun, should (God forbid) a Nazi-like party coming knocking at their door.

Why they continue to vote Democratic is one of the wonders of politics - it defies logic on all levels.

You are so right! I have lived in many states and most Democracts that I have known have been very antisemitic. I believe most of the born again Christians have believed the Jews are god's chosen people, as I believe.

I also believe that ALL of the promised land should be the homeland for the Jews, all of it as described in the Bible.

Tradition has a strong hold on people.

"My dad was a democrat. My granddaddy was a democrat. His dad was a democrat. We were born three things. Irish, Catholic, and Democrat".

Jews have the same tradition, but I do see a change in allegiance by some younger Jews, much like many of the Irish no longer are automatic democrats. We had Reagan. The Jews have Norm Coleman taking a lead on the right.

I think the same gentics were in the Jews who didn't leave Germany and the Jews who are now for the Democrats.

One friend of mine knows absolutely nothing about politics, is a Jew, and thinks that Democrats are for the working man and Republicans are for the rich.

Speaking of shooting, what's up with the love of strict gun control?

Some view it as promoting "peace".

You can ask the same question on gun control to Mainline Protestant organizations(Methodists, PCUSA) as well as some Catholic leadership orgs(Michigan Catholic Conference fought CPLS, which annoyed me to say the least).

Someday it will be the Jews and Christians against the rest of the world...I have always wondered why the Jews support the democrats. If one reads much of what people such Hitler believed in, it is eerily similar to what the democrats believe in...

This excellent article says it all. Actually, I believe American Jews have a self-inflicted death wish. Their hatred for Republicans and GW Bush is stupid, foolish and self-destructive. However, when you are with them in private, it is amazing how they hate and bad mouth Blacks and Hispanics!!! I hate to say it, these folks do not have a clue. They live in their own cloistered world in their "tight" communities and spin their political fantasy among only themselves. Actually, they deserve our sorrow, because in a world with growing Muslim and Third world influence, they are a declining group. Thank God for Israel and the IDF. They see thiongs the way they really are. That is why the Republicans and GW Bush are so popular in the state of Israel. Isreali's know where their bread is buttered, and who is really going to be at their side, as they fight for their country and their lives.

In 2004, 50% of practicing Jews voted for Bush. That is an astounding turnaround. The tide has turned.

I politically converted my Jewish mother in law by telling her about the St. Louis. She started to think back and remembered it. She couldn't answer the question of why Jews in America gave fdr a pass for that dirty low down act.
Older Jews will vote rat until they die, but things are changing. In Florida younger Jews voted GOP at a rate of about 1/3. Also, the Jews going to South Florida are moving to Palm Beach County and not Maimi Dade and Broward as they once did. This is nice since the only damage they can do is limited to making crazy bobby wexler think he is important.

Jackie Mason & Raoul Felder have written some great pieces on this phenomenon of blind Jewish love for the demoncratic party. Do the Jews in this country not see that at college campuses nationwide it's the liberals and their front organizations that are the ones attacking Israel and backing the "poor Palestinian people"? They are also calling for divestment of any funds linked to Israel. When will the Jews learn that the Republican Party and especially conservative Christians in this country believe in Israels right to exist, believe in our common Judeo-Christian Heritage and we also believe that God ordained Israel through his promise to Abraham that the Jewish People would have a homeland.

In a related matter, I was very surprised by NY not being a closer call for President than actually occurred. W has been a staunch supporter of Israel, and was very instrumental in helping the city pick up the pieces after 9/11. I guess love really is blind, deaf and dumb.

Catholics "practice" while Jews "observe" ... unfortunately the % of observant Jews is very low, so 50% of OBSERVANT Jews is still a very small number ... but it IS a step in the right direction.

Little about this past election disappointed as much as the American Jews' failure to see the Bush as their friend. Instead many were leaders of the worst Bush Bashing. Those were NOT mostly Observant Jews.

I think this article helps explain the blind pathology of the liberal Jews. My mother was a liberal Jew, who lost some relatives to pogroms in the Ukraine, lost more still to the Nazis. She raised all three of her children as liberals; we all attended the Unitarian Church.

She was never able to understand why I became a conservative; and up until she died 2 years ago I could not even make her see that those "poor Palestinans" harbor a deep and abiding hatred for her and would gladly slit her threat if given the chance.

The good news is that I gave her her only grandchild, and that child is a good little conservative and staunch Republican. There is hope.

They don't want us to have em. Many Jews(not all)feel that keeping Americans at each others throats(ex racial conflict,illegal immigration)is to their advantage.BTW Marx was a Jew

Where do you get the idea that Jews don't want you to have guns? Many of us are gun-owners ourselves, since we will not march quietly into the showers ever again. Gun-control is the mantra of ALL liberals, not simply Jewish liberals!

Why would keeping Americans at each other's throats be to "their" (not all) advantage? Why would this be advantageous to Jews?

And BTW Lenin and Stalin were NOT Jews. In fact, Stalin killed more Jews than Hitler. So what is your point about Marx? As a conservative, Messianic right wing Jew, I have found greater support for Israel and Jews on the right and greater anti-semitism on the left. I don't bother challenging it on the left. But I have enough respect for FReepers to ask them to think before making these anti-Jewish statements.

I missed that post. I suppose the case can be be made that Marx was an apostate Jew. His parents were both Lutheran converts, a couple years before his birth by most accounts. He was baptised, educated in a Lutheran school, and his first writings were theological in nature. I'd view him as an athiest, apostate-Lutheran, apostate Jew in that order. Of course as a virulent Jew hater he's likely rolling in his grave at that last characterization.

Of course the contrary view is that Jews are just a bunch of commies destroying this country by importing mud people. More instructive of those who hold those opinions than Jews. And they're not all Democrats.

I repeated thombo's post number 12 in my post of 25. His original post has been removed, thanks to the good sense of the admin mod. I suggest that there are plenty of Neo-Nazi and Islamic websites that would welcome thombo's view of the Jews, the fact that his post was removed indicates that Free Republic may not be one of them.

I agree with you. Many people I've worked with whose fathers, grandfathers were staunch union members and still vote Democrat because their unions tell them to even though they are socially conservative.

However, my nephew is a member of the Teamster Union and he said many of his co-workers said to him this last election in Nov. '04, they were voting for Bush. There is hope.

Outside of the Jewish people always voting for Dems, black Americans are also a mystery as to why they always vote for Dems and this inclu des even the professionals I've come in contact with.

Agreed - there is hope.

It's depressing to see the way the Jewish establishment (by and large) has treated Bush, considering he was, by far, the best friend that Israel EVER had.

Whereas Clinton practically demanded that Israel accept near-daily bus bombs, and was loved by most Jews.

Go figure. But nice job on the kid (and yourself, too).

I believe that GW Bush got about 38% of the "Jewish" vote in 2004, which is pretty darn good. I sincerely do not wish to Sterotype all "American Jews" into the "blind" category. But, millions of Jews do not only disagree with GW Bush and the Republican Party, they are haters of the worst kind. I work with many Jews some of which are fine, dignified, patriotic Americans, but the majority are racist bigots and hate Republicans, Southerners, Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities. American liberal Jews put a great face forward in public, but when you are with them in private, they turn into a mass of people haters. Take my word for it. If you ever heard what they say, you would not believe it!!! American liberal Jews, to me are a very conflicted people that defy rational reason.

You know that Democrats will not defend this country against attack! That is fact! So, if someone like Bin Laden and company ever got loose in the USA, there would not be a Jew, any Jew, alive in short order, and Israel and its citizens would be wiped from the face of the Earth forever. As far as I'm concerned any Jew that voted for John Kerry is not hitting on all eight cylinders or is just a plain, blind, ignorant fool as many are.

Yes, there are conservative Jews, and you gave two great examples of folks that are effectively vocal in outlining the real world as it is. There happen to be many others also. But the overwhelming mass of Jews that quietly support President Bush and the Republicans are not vocal enough to openly and effectively confront the radical Jewish left-wing extremists tha regularly rant and rave as the mad men they are! It is truly sad to watch the Jewish people marching to their doom caused by themselves.

The world has proven through history that it will not stand with Jews when the chips are down. Yet, today we have a USA President that stands shoulder to shoulder with the great state of Israel and Americans Jews like Randi Rhodes want to shoot him in cold blood. Shame!!!

I wonder if you realized as you replied to my post that you were speaking to a Jew? A conservative, God fearing, patriotic Jew who loves her country and has two Jewish relatives in the U.S. Marines at present, ready to die for their country?

I work with many Jews some of which are fine, dignified, patriotic Americans, but the majority are racist bigots and hate Republicans, Southerners, Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities.

Those are your words. The majority of Jews are NOT racist bigots. Or did you mean the majority of LIBERAL Jews? Even if you did, you are wrong, sir. The liberal Jew hates his own people, the Jews, more than any other ethnic group. Though I would agree the liberal Jew shares the same hatred as the Christian liberal--for Republicans.

I challenge every liberal Jew I meet on this issue, and never walk away without letting them know they are creating their own doom by not supporting the best President a Jew or Israel ever had.

Look, I'm not going to go through your post piece by piece, but consider this--a liberal jew is no different than a liberal ANYTHING; except that they should be ashamed of supporting the means of their very destruction. We conservative Jews think they are JINO's--Jews in Name Only. They don't represent the Jewish people and should not be presented by our Christian brethren as such.

Could part of the problem be that we don't hear enough from conservative and moderate Jews?Where are the Jewish leaders/intellectuals who support our party?Look what David Horowitz has accomplished.Are there more conservative/moderate Jews who are willing to speak out?They must be out there.Would that help change negative perceptions?

[ The Klan is either dead or a bunch of lazy yuppies, depending on your geography, so American Jews don't have to worry so much about some rebel flag toting inbred shooting at them. ]

Not to speak of the fact that the rebel flag toting inbreds were ALL DEMOCRATS.. and still are.. and that most all democrats despise Isreal.. and pretty much anything else remotely resembling judaism.. whether inbred or not..

If you meet an anti-semite far and away most likely hes a democrat..

Amazing indeed.. Jews remaining a democrat..
Doesn't speak highly of Jews deductive abilities..
No matter their education.. unless its that very education that adled their minds....
