Jewish Donors Outraged by 'Sociopath' Obama, Says Columnist
israel national news ^ | 5/18/11 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 05/18/2011 5:19:14 PM PDT by Nachum

If senior journalist David Goldman is right, the correct word for describing the way a growing number of US Jews feel about President Barack Obama is not 'anger' but 'rage' – white-hot rage, at that, and a conviction that they have been swindled.

Goldman, Senior Editor of First Things magazine and 'Spengler' columnist for Asia Times Online, spoke last week at a convention on intellectuals and terror at Ariel University in Samaria. In his lecture, he quoted a top Jewish campaign donor who used the word 'sociopath' to describe Obama. In an interview with Israel National News, he predicted a possibly dramatic 'train wreck' for the Democrats in the November mid-term elections, with Jewish fundraising for Democrats drying up and a possibly high turnout of anti-Obama evangelical Christians.

INN: The recent McLaughlin group poll shows US Jewish support of Obama at about half its level in the 2008 election. Is this an accurate reflection of the mood among US Jews?

I'd say they're right.

I’m glad they’ve finally come around, but I must say I dont have a great deal of respect for the intelligence of these folks. The evidence of who Obama really is was there for anyone who had eyes, ears and a functioning brain.

It's been a long time coming. The Left has led American Jews down the garden path for generations - something finally had to give.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I think Obama, and the Democrats, have shown that they are a little too comfortable with Israel’s existence being at risk.

No matter how far to the left a Jewish Person might be, most of them still love Israel.

I am not Jewish, but I don’t understand why any Jew would support him. He is an enemy of Israel pure and simple.

I hope the worm doesn’t turn too soon.

Hopefully, they’ll just be lackluster with donations till they realize he’s the disaster that he is. Maybe October 2012.

Color me skeptical. The American Jews have been helping to elect democrats/Marxists for years now. Why are they suddenly in a ‘rage’?

Of all demographics, this group has consistently voted to their own detriment as well as to the detriment of the Nation.

Look at the Jews of Hollywood. No matter what is brought out about a Dem/Marxist candidate, they still vote and support him/her.

Why are they turning on Obama. Don't they want to revisit the Gas Chambers? /s

I've met many self-described Jews who are ambivalent about Israel.

“a conviction that they have been swindled

I’d say they’re right.”

No, I’d say that the socialist/collectivest/commie portion of American Jews, and that is most of them, is just angry over the economy and over Obama’s pro-Moslim behavior.

Call the Waaambulance! The “Smartest People in the World” didn’t bother to read anything about Obama before they voted their core tendency to vote Democrap.

They got what they voted for. HE really DID tell them, and all of us. So did Moochelle, remember?

We can list you literally hundreds of Jewish-run organizations who are sworn to help Hamas end Israel, further the “Palestinian” cause, tear down the Israeli “Apartheid wall” and help with the Gaza flotillas.

If Mohammed is one of the most popular boys names in the world, “Vidkun” should be pretty high on the totem pole too.

Of the ones that are usually anti-Israel, it’s often because they are secularized. They may be Jewish in their ethnicity, but they aren’t really Jewish in their heart.

Who knows what these self-loathing Jewish nobama supporters will do. They have shown a history of being mentally disturbed through their consistent support of other marxist losers. The Jewish who support these self-destructive policies yearn for death.

Cantor is on the other side against conservatives, he supported Scozzafava and supports Mitt Romney, and is against Palin, and against Bachmann or tea partiers making gains in his congress.

Back in ‘91 when my military son was sent to Iraq - my Jewish employer was quite critical of the mission and made no mention of my child’s sense of duty or honor.

Believing his concern was related to Israel, I asked him if he had family at risk in Israel. He snapped: “Why don’t you ask if I have family in Iraq”?

So I asked him: “Do you have any stupid family members in Iraq?”

Shut him up;)

Do we know the percentage of Jewish volunteers in the US military or are they all in Israel?

Yeah, cry me a river, American Jews have long been voting overwhelmingly for the very liberals that are only too happy to sell them out.

They made their beds, now it's time to lay in them. They're getting exactly what they voted for.

Beck did a good job of pointing out Obammy’s (and the left’s) hypocrisy on Israel. More important he compares the words of Hitler with the freedom loving muslims of today.

In a 2003 article this was the estimate.

“There are no statistics revealing the number of Jews currently in service, says Rabbi Nathan Landman, a former Air Force chaplain and now the deputy director of the Jewish Welfare Board’s Jewish Chaplain’s Council, a division of the Jewish Community Centers Association (www.jcca.org) — but experience tells him the numbers are low.

“Half the percentage of the population level would be optimistic,” Landman says.

Jews account for 2.1 percent of the U.S. population, according to the latest census figures. If Landman’s estimate is correct, out of an Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps totaling 1.4 million, fewer than 15,000 are Jewish.”

“Rabbi Bonnie Koppell of Chandler, Arizona’s, Temple Beth Sholom — a Lieutenant Colonel and the first female rabbi to serve as a chaplain in the armed forces — has a theory.

“I think in general it’s not part of the Jewish culture to be in the military,” she says. “You don’t have family traditions other than World War II, when there was a massive mobilization draft.”

Issa is a Christian Arab American, not likely to swing Jewish voters our way.

Cantor might be an interesting VP choice.

That is funny. :)

Personally, I don’t understand people, like your son’s employer. They don’t undertsnad to the degree that Israel, for all its imperfections, helps keep us safe.

Do they really think that, if Israel were destroyed, that the Arabs would rejoice and make peace?

The more likely answer is that, after rejoicing, the first thing that would happen is that the Arabs would find some other target and do it all again.

You don’t radicalize a population and then expect them to de-radicalize on command.

We'll see if donors really hold their dollars but the Jewish vote will go Obama 4-1, more likely 9-1, because American Jews love their socialism.

In fact, if you go back 100 years they only pass up the Democrat when a Socialist is on the ballot!

By-and-large evangelicals care more about Israel than they do.

It predates Truman. Earliest statistics I've seen were for 1916, Wilson (D) had 55%. The Jewish majority vote for Dem/Progressive/Socialist candidates grew from there. FDR got 90% as did LBJ (vs. Goldwater).

Reagan was the last Republican to make a significant dent getting 39% of the Jewish vote against Carter. The gains eroded and were gone by '92 when Bush 41 lost to Clinton.
