Skip to comments.Waxman: Jews vote Republican ‘to protect their wealth’
Posted on 09/15/2011 2:08:11 PM PDT by danielmryan
Democrats working to explain the loss of a safe congressional seat in this weeks special election to replace disgraced New York Rep. Anthony Weiner have come up with some startling conclusions.
California Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman, a prominent Jewish congressman, explained that some Jews are selecting not to vote for Democrats because they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.
One of the more common narratives emerging after the election in New Yorks 9th Congressional District is that the districts large Jewish population was alienated by President Obamas policies on Israel, swinging the heavily Democratic district to Republican Bob Turner.
Waxman did acknowledge the influence of Obamas Israel policy, telling The Hill, There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obamas policies in the Middle East.

If what he says is true, then the Republican Party would be wise to roll out a big welcome mat.
Heh...Waxman’s an anti-Semite despite being Jewish himself. Too funny!
Waxman doesn’t like Perry? Well, that seals it.
If a Republican had said that there would be hellfire from the media...............
If you think that’s bad, just wait till the day that blacks turn on the democratic party.
>> they want to protect their wealth”
Hey, at least he’s admitting that it IS *THEIR* wealth.
That’s more of a conservative thought than *most* demon’rats will allow.
Nothing wrong with that!
Dem greedy joooz!!
Ahh... the ol’ “greedy Jew” meme...
Wow. Waxman will regret this and I can’t stop laughing. Somebody needs to mail him a copy of Identity Politics for Dumbasses.
And in what century do you predict that?
Waxman is a creep.
Libs love it when people vote their “self-interest” when that self-interest means more government handouts. Yet, they resent it when “self-interest” means people being wanting to keep their own money.
Waxman channeling Eric Cartman?
OK, so following the same logic, blacks vote democrat to protect their right to poverty.
Can you imagine the uproar if someone had said that blacks vote for the democrat to protect their welfare benefits?
Shame on Waxman!
Waxman, another self-hating Jew.
Henry Waxman is a far-left idiot but his lame and insulting ‘explanation’ of a Democrat loss in a special election in a congressional district with a 3 to 1 ratio in favor of Democrats is particularly revealing. Mostly because it demonstrates desperation and anger at losing a formally ‘safe’ Democrat seat in congress and indicates that Obama and Democrat politicians, even those in ‘safe’ (Democrat) districts are in jeopardy in the 2012 election. In short, the liberal house of cards is collapsing and leftist politicians such as Henry ‘nostrils’ Waxman are scared and, in his case, breathing hard.
Himmler in disguise.
These days, a lot of people, Jewish and non-Jewish, are voting Republican to protect their wealth, whether they are well-off or not.
Same reason politicians run for office. Same reason cops want to be cops. They gain special access to wealth for the one and special priveledge to break the law on the other.
How could anyone so ugly go out in public without starting a shrieking and screaming reaction from just about everyone? He should put a bag over his face and cut out holes for him to see — to spare us all. It’s the least he can do.
Only an idiot would vote democrat to to protect their wealth.
what a great idea , attack the Jewish voters to bring them back on side
First Barry Manilow endorses Ron Paul and now this Waxman business
“Uncle Torah’s Miami Condo” (The new millenium version of Uncle Tom’s Cabin”)
What he's admitting, then, is that your wealth is in DANGER IF YOU VOTE DEMOCRAT!!!!!..........
How about this statement:
Blacks vote Democrat to protect their handouts.
Would that be an acceptable statement?
Sounds like good advice to me.
I mean, who doesn’t want to protect their wealth?
I dunno, they sure seem to run as democrats to protect their wealth.
So... They didn't want to protect their wealth in 2008?
AND now WAXman states the obvious that every American should be considering...
Does Waxman really think comments like that are going to bring the Jewish vote back into the Democrat fold?
i thought majority of american jews vote democrats
How could anyone so ugly go out in public without starting a shrieking and screaming reaction from just about everyone? He should put a bag over his face and cut out holes for him to see to spare us all. Its the least he can do./
His mother was frightened by the Phantom of the Opera. Forget the paper bag, now it’s plastic. THAT’S the least he can do.
Waxman. Feinstien. Wasserman-Shultz. Frank. Ackermann. Levin. Weiner. Leiberman.
I wonder if these knuckleheads think that Jews are voting to maintain their wealth. And what’s wrong with that? Why should someone give up their hard earned money. Guess what, I’m voting to maintain my wealth too, Waxhat.
That is all too true....self loathing has afflicted the Hebrews since tablets were tossed
The funniest I have read today!
You owe me a new keyboard! :-)
Waxman joins George Soros as another anti-semitic Jew.
Waxman is schizoid in that when fellow Jews were backing Obozo, they were good people. Now they’re greedy schmucks?
Can’t have it both ways.
Actually it really is more complicated than that. When there was NO fury about keeping the Ten Commandants within the public square, there was more than 'self loathing' happening.
I love the smell of liberal socialist fear in the morning.
May I correct a misspelling?
And I’m going to “BIDEN” (aka STEAL) that image and change the spelling for future use in ridiculing this azzhole.
When push comes to shove, Dem's just want power and don't really care who they have to insult or cheat as long as they get the power they want.
Considering how high the Black unemployment is, the youth unemployment, and then considering how much the US Democratic party has lined up against Israel since Jimmy Carter was President, I am amazed that the Democratic Party has any kind of support base at all.
Not really a jewish thing, an American thing.
Non-welfare-dependent Americans vote Republican to protect their wealth
Waxman is admitting that Democrats are for wealth confiscation? He's saying that if you want to protect your wealth from Democrats, then vote Republican?
