Posted on 09/01/2008 8:55:58 AM PDT by justiceseeker93
Democratic Congressman Robert Wexler of Florida lashed out Saturday at John McCain's choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, accusing her of supporting "Nazi sympathizer" Pat Buchanan and branding the move an "affront to all Jewish Americans."
"John McCain's decision to select a vice presidential running mate that endorsed Pat Buchanan for president in 2000 is a direct affront to all Jewish Americans," said a statement by Wexler.

Wexler, showing his desperation over the obvious movement of Jewish voters away from the 'Rats in this presidential race, is resorting to gutter tactics to smear McCain and Palin.
It turns out that a Chabad rabbi in Alaska stated emphatically that Palin has been a good friend to the Jewish community there.
Communistman Wexler is an affront to all true Americans.
Who does Wexler think he is?
Two words: Jeremiah Wright.
This is really getting pathetic.
The “Kurt Waldheim Treatment” will backfire.
Hey Wexler, have a talk with your own vp candidate. He basically consigned Israel to vapor over a nuclear Iran.
When the Dims get to an the appointment of Governor Palin as “An affront to all women”..... call me ok?
They must have a list of potential victims to dredge up...
I seriously question their mental status - do these people actually know how to vote?
No affront whatsoever to this Hindu poster. So long as
her religion does not advocate beheading of non-believers
and forced conversions, I got no problem with her religion.
While Biden tells Israel to suck up a Mullah Nuke.
The loudmouth punk comes out of his ‘rat hole.
Typical charge from Wexler. He pulls the anti-semite card all of the time from the bottom of the deck.
Shouldn’t Haaretz check the facts before publishing this sort of garbage?
In particular, did Palin ever endorse Buchanan? No. Is she a Jew hater? No. Does she have friendly relations with Alaskan Jews? Yes.
Pass it on.
This mania on the part of the Dims just shows they are scared sh**less over this VP pick.
Since it’s such a popular question these days, Congressman,how many houses in Florida do you own?
The Rats are a funny bunch.
Barry Soetoro, their Indonesian nominee, is a direct affront to every loyal American citizen.
Wexler is the same Marxist idiot who “grilled” (threw lame-ass accusations) against General Petraeus and roots for surrender to the terrorists. Wexler is a direct affront to Jews and any sane American.
isn’t wexler the one committing a fraud on the citizens of florida by claiming to live in the district when he did not?
This is a two-fer...a pic of the veep-to-be (at right) and a refutation of a Dem smear.
he should be talking to all those palm beach voters (some jewish) that voted for pat during the 2000 election ;)
I think the liberals have lost it, and a woman pushed them over the edge. Three cheers for Mrs. Palin.
Let Wexler and all the other naysayers rant on. This pick, Sarah Palin by McCain is a judgement call. Judgement is the very item we all question OB on, judgement in his so called church, his block raising friends in Cook County, his criminal friends who financed his mansion, and his many many “present” votes in the 140 days in Congress...JUDGEMENT! Obama has done nothing but read a speech well, and Hillary Clinton told Americans so!
this i don’t understand about many people of the jewish faith
they continually vote democratic, when it is the republican and evangelicals who support isreal
what is it? are they self-hating jews?
i think because the middle east is not in their backyard, and they feel no threat, they have some weird allegiance to the dumocrats
i wonder if those who refuse to support israel would send their children to live in israel and face the terrorist bent on destroying israel
this has always puzzled me
The choice left the two Jewish congressman reported to be on the list of possible VPs - Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor and Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman - out of luck, but several politically active Alaskan Jews praised Palin's ties to the community.
"The Jewish community should be very excited that Sarah was selected. She has been very conscious of the Jewish community here in Alaska and now with the opportunity of her new position, she'll have the opportunity to look at the Jewish community globally," said Alaskan Republican Jewish Coalition member Terry Gorlick, who knows Palin well and has worked with her on several issues.
"Sarah's absolutely pro-Israel," he said, referring to conversations with her and comments she's made about Israel's security and its importance to the United States. He noted that as governor she signed a resolution honoring Israel for its 60th birthday.

The left's head is imploding as we are here to take back America!
This confirms what a brilliant pick McCain made in choosing Palin for VP. It has driven the left insane.
LIAR LIES!- Details at 11:00...
But he doesn't look too hard for signs of antisemitism in his own party. In fact, he ignores them.
Bob Wexler is an affront to anything breathing.
Well said. I’m puzzled too. You know, it’s the same deal in Canada. The Jews historically vote the Liberal Party, a party that favours abortion, loves the Hizbollah, supports gay marriage, etc., etc., ad nauseum. I just can’t figure it out. FYI: Michael Medved, a devout orthodox Jew, wrote a great book on this very question, called “Right Turns”, where he suggests all Jews should be voting conservative. His thoughtful reasoning makes compelling reading.
Better get used to this. Wexler is swine, though that's an insult to the noble Porcine both wild and domesticated.
The reason Biden was picked was 1.) No one else would have the job or 2.) the pragmatic decision was made to "go negative." Going "negative" is NOT what most outside politics think that it is.
It is not used simply because "it works." Going Negative is a strategy employed when momentum in tracking polls indicate your opponant will be ahead of you on election day, even if you are ahead in the polls today. Negative nonsense statements have to be answered in kind. And the idea is to so disgust enough voters, particularly the sensitive who are on the fence, that a campaign effectively REDUCES overall participation in voting.
The hope is your "broken glass" supporters will outnumber the other side's voters who will crawl over broken glass to vote for the other side.
It is a particularly nasty illustration of the kind of cynical hypocrisy employed by the Democrat's nominee and his handlers. This is why the choice of Governor Palin was a brilliant move. Saying it gave "the Base" a reason to vote for McCain, rather than just against Obama is an understatement. It takes the hatchet out of the hand of Biden.
This authorized pronouncements by Wexler (who is not just an attack dog, but a RABID attack dog) is an indication that their determination to raise such a stink that good people will stay away from the ballot, leaving only their unwashed supporters to win a plurality, has been doubly reaffirmed.
Expect the Progressive Caucus, including Reid and Pelosi, to make more and more of these kinds of really nasty and outrageous statements. It is deliberate, not stupid. It is aimed at wearing down and clearing the field of the best Americans, leaving only the cruel and ignorant, who don't mind the stink, behind to vote November 4th. Don't be outraged. The only response to this sort of nastiness to to warn as many people as you can to batten down the hatches, maybe even turn the TV off, for the next 67 days. This is war, folks. And they will do ANYTHING, say ANYTHING, destroy ANYTHING to win. Immunized yourself against outrage because it causes hesitation.
After all, should anyone be surprised by such a statement coming from Wexler? This is his MO.
FReepMail to be added or removed from this pro-Israel/Judaic/Russian Jewry ping list.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
As I pointed out in my post #1, the 'Rats are sensing a big swing in the Jewish vote toward the GOP this year. This has gotten them so disturbed that they are slinging mud every which way.
Yep, it's the same fool. What's even more dismaying is that the imbeciles in his district have repeatedly voted him back into office.....and likely will again.
It’s always been said, “The Jews live like Episcopalians, but vote like Puerto Ricans”.
Jews are about 2/3 liberal and 1/3 non-liberal.
Still when it comes to conservative opinion leaders, many are Jews like Krauthammer, Kristol, Prager, Medved, or even moderates Lieberman and Mortimer Zuckerman of the Daily News. The person who introduced me to economic conservatism was Milton Friedman, who also was an inspiration to Ronald Reagan.
The number one contributor to conservative causes and the GOP is Jewish . .. a billionaire who owns the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. He outgives George Soros, but isn’t mentioned very much. I think you will see a lot more contributions to the GOP than is generally mentioned.
Not to mention a direct affront to boar hogs, whom he most closely resembles.
Hell, If I were a Jew - I’d be embarrassed and enraged every time Wexler opened his mouth.
The SOB is clearly the most obnoxious of the obnoxious Congress Critters — and a liar and tax cheat to boot.
Palin must truly be awesome.
The liberals are going over her with a magnifying glass :) and can’t find anything of substance to slam her with. So they have to swing at the air.........”she faked her pregnancy,” “she hates Jews”, etc.
They must really be scared.
In answer to your question....
All Jews are not equal..
Here in America - we have been cursed by being on the receiving end of too many members of the “Lost Tribe of Israel”.... the Stupid Tribe..
I have worked for decades - attempting to trade some of our excess of these Stupid Communistic Self Loathing Jews for some of the Righteous Jews of Israel..
As you can imagine - the Righteous Jews of Israel are not interested........
Yes, would Wexler ever suggest there is such a thing as antisemitism on the left?
Motimer Zuckerman of the Daily News? He’s been a devout Clintonista ever since he’s owned that rag. I wouldn’t call him “moderate” and his rag certainly isn’t.
Democratic plan: Divide, destroy, envy, hate, anger, guilt, accuse, deny. Ther Rat party is all about devision and hatred without misery or the inventing of misery, they can not survive. Dispicable every one.
