BREAKING SCANDAL: Obama Campaign Approved “Israel Lobby” Terminology

BREAKING SCANDAL: Obama Campaign Approved “Israel Lobby” Terminology …possibly as code for “Jewish Lobby”

A My.BarackObama.com user re-posted the following E-mail (http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/emk/gG5VZB) he received from a site administrator or moderator, who is therefore an official representative of Barack Obama’s campaign. Emily is obviously counseling EMK to use “Israel Lobby” (the title of Walt and Mearsheimer’s infamous book) as code for “Jewish Lobby.”

Hi [EMK],

Thank you so much for your involvement in the My.BarackObama online community. Your voice is valued here; however, we were forced to remove your recent blog post that referred to the “Jewish lobby.” Please use the more specific and accurate term “Israel lobby.” We appreciate your understanding and hope that you continue to be active in our online community.

Emily

Obama for America

Emily is an administrator or moderator for Obama for America, and she therefore represents the campaign itself.

It won't cost Obama any votes if it stays at Free Republic. Take it to your Web site, blog, and local paper.

See also how the Obama campaign sanctioned (at least until it showed up here, at IsraPundit, and Atlas Shrugs) a posting on how the "kike filth are trying to steal the election from us." http://www.israpundit.com/2008/?p=1680 This is yet another example of the kind of hate speech that is welcome at my.barackobama.com until it becomes a public embarrassment, whereupon it goes under the bus.

I say,put it on a T-shirt (the phrase “kike filth” on the front and the rest of the quote w/a brief reference on the back) and sell them,and recruit people to get into the NObama venues and raise a stink with it.If it gets camera coverage for Code Pink,maybe it will work for the good folks of Israel.I’m not Jewish,but I support Israel,and I would gladly buy and wear one.

If the Obama campaign calls to ask for my support—which it did in the past—I am likely to answer, “Sorry, no one is here but us kike filth, to use the terminology from your Web site—or us white interlopers, to use the terminology of Obama’s friend Al Sharpton.”

I support Israel but I’m not Jewish. I therefore am not part of the jewish Lobby, but I am part of the Israel Lobby. The two are not the same.

I’m not Jewish, but I’ve been called a “Mossad agent” and a “kike” for my support of Israel. Every decent person should stand up to the Jew hating pigs.

Please use the more specific and accurate term “Israel lobby.”

"more specific and accurate term", huh... Please also avoid "God damn America", use more accurate and specific "God damn the Bush Administration". Also, don't say you never been proud of America. Use "never been proud of the politics of America".

For more details refer to the Orwell's instructional book "1984".

I have never understood the problem with Jewish people.

I remember seeing stuff on TV as a child that showed people being mean to someone because they were Jewish and I just was thinking, “What’s the problem?”. In my world, everyone just went to the church their parents took them to.

And I certainly don’t understand why everyone hates Isreal for simply existing.

I think he means that he would identify himself as this to show contempt for Obama, just as I said I would identify myself as this when answering a call from the Obama campaign. That is, the T-shirt would indicate that the Obama campaign welcomed this terminology for Jews.

Why is this a "scandal?" Changing wording from "Jewish lobby" to "Israel lobby" Sounds like nothing more than a bit of language-shaping to avoid sounding anti-Semitic ... and less like Pat Buchanan.

YAWWWWWWwwwwwnnnnnnn.....

Re: Doesn’t Matter. If the chicken finally realizes that the pellet is pre-owned chicken food (think about it—pre-owned food = ?) it may rethink the situation. Obama & Co are feeding Jewish liberals pre-owned food.

Knowing that Iran and others actively are working to nuke Israel, and knowing McCain cares and Obama does not, tell me how ANY member of the Jewish faith could possible continue the Democratic voting traditions and vote for Obama who will provide little if any support for Israel?

Re: “Knowing that Iran and others actively are working to nuke Israel, and knowing McCain cares and Obama does not, tell me how ANY member of the Jewish faith could possible continue the Democratic voting traditions and vote for Obama who will provide little if any support for Israel?”

The fact that Iran is also working to nuke the United States, and Obama wants to sing Kumbaya with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, doesn’t seem to bother them either. There are probably Jews (and gay people, e.g. in MoveOn.org) who would vote for Hitler if Hitler was running with a D instead of an N after his name.

Before anyone invokes Godwin’s Law, A Jewish Voice for Peace, aka A Jewish Voice for Hamas, has openly advocated for Hamas (which agrees with Hitler about what should be done with Jews) on its Web site. Indybay.org has censored postings about what Islamic supremacists do to gay people in the Middle East, even though it is supposedly pro-gay rights. Michael Pfleger, who is a Caucasian, proclaimed gleefully to Obama’s church that “there were a whole lot of white people crying.” Every group has its Quislings and Judas goats.

Excuse me....surely you know that I understand what a vile epithet that is,no less surely than the “N” word,and that it would only be to prove the point that Obama is truly what he tries so hard to convince people he is not-anti-semitic.That would be my only reason for wearing it.If it would take favor and votes away from him and have people understand who and what he is,yes,I would wear it.

As we all know, much more blatantly antisemitic posts than the "Jewish lobby" have appeared on my.barackobama.com . Generally, the Obama campaign moderators have either taken a long time to remove such offensive posts - in response to complaints from outside sources - or have not removed them at all.

Anti-semites seem to be attracted to Obama's campaign like scavangers to a carcass.

That table is from a book edited by the head of the National Jewish Democratic Council and overstates the 'Rat percentage by several points as compared to studies done by other sources.

I'll go out on a limb right now and predict that Obama will not get more than 60% of the Jewish vote in November. According to one poll I've seen he is running in the 50s, which likely occasioned his recent trip to Israel, which, BTW, was hardly an overwhelming success.

If you read "Hitler's Willing Executioners," you'll have a much better understanding of the sociological and theological underpinning and recent history of the issue.

Irrespective of where the stats come from, equally significant is the pre-92 experience.

1976--Ford (R) 27-- Carter (D) 71

Having overcome concerns over antisemitism in the 1976 campaign, Carter is perceived as overtly anti-Israel. He drops from 71% of the Jewish vote to 45%

1980-Reagan (R) 39--Carter (D) 45--Anderson (I) 14

1984-Reagan (R) 31--Mondale (D) 67

1988-ush (R) 35--Dukakis (D) 64

George Bush capitalizes on the mid 30s percentages of the Jewish vote with a Secretary of State who tells those mid 30s to Go *uck themselves they don't vote for us anyway and by presenting Pat Buchanan as the moral voice of the Republican Party. Guess what?

1992--Bush (R) 11--Clinton (D) 80--Perot (I) 9

And yes, the GOP is still struggling back from that.

And IMO it's not because Jews are stupid, rather that beyond the 50% or so who are committed dems, the independents are sensitive to hostility.

Obama is definitely anti-Israel.

Farrakhan is radically anti-Israel.

Jeremiah wright is anti-Israel.

Jeremiah wright honored Farrakhan as a great leader in December, 2007.

Obama sat under Jeremiah Wright for 20 years.

Cast closed (despite all the phony posturing as of late).

...the independents are sensitive to hostility.

If that is so, then they should be going against a black radical with Islamist friends and a Moslem background. Can a major party candidate for POTUS be any more obviously hostile to Jewish interests than "Osama" Obama?
