[NJDC]: Bachmann “Does Not Hesitate” to Sign Offensive Pledge
National Jewish Democratic Council ^ | 7/8/11 | Ariela Fleisig

Posted on 07/09/2011 10:44:18 AM PDT by Winged Hussar

[National "Jewish" Democratic Council goes on record as supporting Sharia and misogyny, and opposing the First Amendment.]

Presidential candidate Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) signed a highly offensive pledge advanced by the Iowa social conservative group The Family Leader. The pledge insensitively compares childrearing by single parents and same-sex couples to slavery, declares homosexuality a public health risk and compares it to polygamy, polyandry, and adultery, rejects a woman’s right to make decisions about her health, and continues the right wing’s incorrect straw-man argument against Islam. Nearly every point in the pledge conflicts with the values of most American Jews, who largely disagree with most of the points made by the pledge and oppose racist and homophobic rhetoric.

...This pledge is just the latest indication that today’s Republican Party has been taken over by extremists. Bachmann’s prompt signing confirms what NJDC knew and said before: Bachmann is simply too extreme for the vast majority of American Jews.

It is vital to stress that this is not a tongue-in-cheek parody that relies on a simple misprint or a statement taken out of context. NJDC not only stated but REITERATED that it opposes the items it quoted from the Family Leader pledge that Bachmann signed.

The article says explicitly that "Nearly every point in the pledge conflicts with the values of most American Jews, who largely disagree with most of the points made by the pledge and oppose racist and homophobic rhetoric." NJDC says the same thing twice, and very explicitly.

(1) "Nearly every point in the pledge conflicts with the values of most American Jews," and

(2) "who largely disagree with most of the points made by the pledge "

This makes it clear beyond any doubt that NJDC is not citing a few portions of the Family Leader pledge to which it takes exception. It denounces "most of the points" and "nearly every point" and then lists those below as specific examples.

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

LBJ’s 1965 War on Poverty was triggered in part by the famous ‘Moynihan Report’ finding that the black out-of-wedlock rate had hit 26%; today, the white rate exceeds that, the overall rate is 41% and over 70% of African-American babies are born to single parents - a prime sociological indicator for poverty, pathology and prison regardless of race or ethnicity.

So NJDC would have us believe that Jews are in favor of babies being born to and raised by single parents, and thus ending up in poverty and prison regardless of race or ethnicity. Since most are Black, however, maybe NJDC really prefers Black people to remain on the Democratic Party's kinder and gentler slave plantation and therefore dependent on government programs. Simon Legree lives, and he's a National Judenrat Democratic Kapo! Note also that NJDC denounces the pledge as "racist" even though it says very clearly that single parenting is bad for children of any race or ethnicity, thus underscoring this organization's long history of dishonesty.

Recognition of the overwhelming statistical evidence that married people enjoy better health, better sex, longer lives, greater financial stability, and that children raised by a mother and a father together experience better learning, less addiction, less legal trouble, and less extramarital pregnancy.
NJDC finds the above statement objectionable and contrary to the values of American Jews--a statement that, as an American Jew, I therefore regard NJDC's statement as anti-Semitic. Come to think of it, NJDC's article could, with only a few minor revisions, stand in for the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

Humane protection of women and the innocent fruit of conjugal intimacy - our next generation of American children - from human trafficking, sexual slavery, seduction into promiscuity, and all forms of pornography and prostitution, infanticide, abortion and other types of coercion or stolen innocence.
Again, the NJDC lists this as a point that CONFLICTS with the values of most American Jews, and stresses that Jews "disagree with most of the points made by the pledge." NJDC is therefore saying that Jews support human trafficking--there are plenty of anti-Semitic hate groups that say the same thing--along with infanticide and sexual slavery. I regard this as anti-Semitic hate speech directed at me personally, and NJDC has been my openly declared enemy ever since it used its purportedly Jewish identity to whitewash MoveOn.org's hate speech against Jews, Catholics, and others.

Support for the enactment of safeguards for all married and unmarried U.S. Military and National Guard personnel, especially our combat troops, from inappropriate same-gender or opposite-gender sexual harassment, adultery or intrusively intimate commingling among attracted (restrooms, showers, barracks, tents, etc.); plus prompt termination of military policymakers who would expose American wives and daughters to rape or sexual harassment, torture, enslavement or sexual leveraging by the enemy in forward combat roles.
NJDC just went on record as supporting sexual harassment, rape, torture, and enslavement of female American military personnel. Remember, the material in the quotes is the pledge Bachmann signed, and NJDC cited these particular points as CONFLICTING with the values of American Jews.

Rejection of Sharia Islam and all other anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control.
NJDC's synagogue is the first synagogue I have ever seen with minarets, and a muezzin instead of a cantor. NJDC supports Sharia and embraces anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control.

Fierce defense of the First Amendment’s rights of Religious Liberty and Freedom of Speech, especially against the intolerance of any who would undermine law-abiding American citizens and institutions of faith and conscience for their adherence to, and defense of, faithful heterosexual monogamy.

NJDC just went on record as supporting legally enforceable speech codes and must therefore be regarded as a de facto albeit not de jure domestic enemy of the United States.

I think NJDC just dug itself into a hole it cannot possibly get out of. This needs to be circulated as widely as possible to make it clear that the NJDC just published on its own Web site an anti-Semitic tirade worthy of Mel Gibson, the difference being that NJDC was stone cold sober when it did this.

NJDC = National Judenrat Democratic Kapos, which is admittedly unfair to kapos (Jews who collaborated with Nazis) because the kapos almost universally acted under duress and would have been killed had they not cooperated. NJDC is under no duress whatsoever when it posts anti-Semitic material and anti-Christian images (Bubbie versus the GOP, with Jesus and ministers portrayed in a "This is the Enemy" context plus the Cross in the blue field of the U.S. Flag--an obvious knockoff of anti-Semitic propaganda with the Star of David in the same context. http://www.stentorian.com/MoveOn/njdc.html for screen shots)

We are dealing basically with the political counterpart of a common prostitute with no shame, honor, or common decency whatsoever.

By the way, NJDC, Bachmann has my vote next November if she becomes the Republican candidate.

The key here is Jewish and DEMOCRAT with the emphasis on DEMOCRAT.

In simple fact, EVERYTHING the pledge condemns is in fact condemned explicitly in or by implication in the Torah.

The problem with many DEMOCRATs, of ALL religious persuasions is their “Holy Text” is not the Torah or Bible, but the flawed book of secular humanism which has created the moral decay and degeneracy which is destroying our culture.

The God of the Bible brought the first European colonists to America, a land of milk and honey. And the God of the Bible did the same to the ancient Hebrews. And that same Bible warned the Hebrews that the land would “vomit them out” if they failed to follow his precepts in morality and theology.

The same thing will happen to us here if we continue to do they did.

“You knew when you posted this that this group is NOT a mainstream Jewish Group. It’s a front group for Israel haters and this administration. Shame, shame on you.”

It sounds like you are accusing me of citing NJDC as representative of mainstream Jews. I said very explicitly that I regard NJDC’s statements as anti-Semitic hate speech directed at me personally, and added that NJDC has been my declared enemy ever since it used its Jewish identity to whitewash MoveOn.org’s anti-Semitic and other hate speech. That is, by saying Jews oppose most of the points in the pledge, NJDC is saying that Jews support the repugnant items indicated. As far as I am concerned, NJDC might as well have posted the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

Typical response from a bunch of libtard commies:

Mission:

NJDC maximizes Jewish support for Democrats at the federal and state levels of government.

NJDC also educates Democratic elected officials and candidates to increase support for Jewish domestic and foreign policy priorities.

We do this to promote both social justice in America and a secure, democratic Jewish State of Israel.

Obviously the latter—or maybe just themselves. Their religion involves worship of the Holy Trinity: Franklin Roosevelt the Father, Barack Obama the Son, and Lyndon Johnson the Holy Ghost. Maybe they also pray to a golden calf, I mean donkey.

“I hear Obama may be dropping Joe Biden in favor of 2012 democrat hopeful, Adolph Hitler. “

Monday: Hitler announces he is running for President.

Tuesday: Republican Jews, Evangelical Christians, and others express outrage.

Wednesday: Hitler changes his party registration from Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei to Democrat.

Thursday: NJDC says “Stop the Smears!” and demands that the RJC, Evangelicals, and so on stop “swiftboating” Hitler.

It would really be neat to find out how many people this so-called NJDC really has. How many paid members? Or, is it like so many other loony left groups — a couple of aged, granola munching, long haired, dope smoking, NPR listening, acid rockers, in flip flops, with a fax machine on speed dial to sympathetic MSM outlets?

NJDC used its nominally Jewish identity to whitewash MoveOn.org’s knowing and willful hosting of anti-Semitic and other forms of hate speech, much as kapos (Jewish concentration camp trustees) used their Jewish identities to convince other Jews that the Nazi cattle cars were going to carry them to nice country resorts instead of gas chambers. The difference between the kapos of World War II and the National Judenrat Democratic Kapos is that the former had guns to their heads, often literally, and would have been killed had they not acted as Judas goats. NJDC chose to whitewash MoveOn.org’s vicious anti-Semitism entirely on its own because MoveOn.org’s agenda is far more important to it than Jews or Judaism.

Bottom line is no one knows, much less has heard about this fringe group. I think it's more like my description of it.

However, you are right about large numbers of Jews whose true faith is liberalism/progressivism/socialism/Marxism. They go through the motions and call themselves Jews, but they are JINOs (Jews in name only).

It is difficult for me to think in terms of race. There are good people and there are evil people in all races. We cannot group think, or we will become the proletariat. Each person must stand on his/her own character. And remember that there IS a right and wrong, no matter what they taught you in your FEDucation!

Who is responsible for grouping American Jews into the far left category? Let’s hear it straight from an American Jew.

Reagan had enough sense to leave the Democrats in 1962.

Perry and Bachman supporting democrats in the late 70's and 80' is indefensible

She's also a certifiable megalomaniac, 3 years in the House and she thinks shes ready to be President?

Hope her leadership of the "Tea Party Caucus" is not an indication of how she'll do, because its losing members, is ineffective, and is not unified, just look at what they did on the vote to get us out of Libya.

The flaming husband is just another nail.

Rev. 2:9
&
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Rev. 3:9

Michele Bachmann is being revealed as a disaster.

We have this pledge that, among other things, raises the specter of slavery as being better for blacks than freedom.

She won't come clean on the farm story: did she earn money from it like her filings said or not earn as she claimed in an interview.

Her husband is not a license therapist in MN, and while it's not strictly required in that state, it's highly peculiar.

Her legislative record is on par with Obama's: unremarkable.

She admits she only went for an advanced degree in tax law because her husband told her to and believes in strict deference of a wife to a husband. How would she handle decisions as POTUS in that light?

She's great as a firebrand in the House but would be a gift to Obama as the nominee.

Sarah Palin said it well today, "Second, the office of the presidency is too important for on-the-job training. It requires a strong chief executive who has been entrusted with real authority in the past and has achieved a proven track record of positive measurable accomplishments."

We need someone other than Bachmann to be the unRomney.

It seems like the only pledge she won't sign is DeMint's Cut, Cap & Balance!

Cut - Substantial cuts in spending that will reduce the deficit next year and thereafter.

Cap - Enforceable spending caps that will put federal spending on a path to a balanced budget.

Balance - Congressional passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution -- but only if it includes both a spending limitation and a super-majority for raising taxes, in addition to balancing revenues and expenses.

She lamely dodged saying it didn't go far enough.

In fairness to Perry and Bachmann, Reagan was 51 in 1962.

Not that I think she's ready at all but, factually, this is her fifth year in the House and her 3rd term.

I agree it she's definitely failing as the Tea Party Caucus leader.

“We have this pledge that, among other things, raises the specter of slavery as being better for blacks than freedom.”

Her point was not that Black people were better off as slaves, but rather that single parent households create conditions similar to slavery (poverty and so on).
