What a pile of gobbledygook. Jews are liberals before they are Jews and even before they are Americans. There is a belief in a utopian state “of things”, and if an all-powerful government is required to enforce a utopian state, then so be it. Oops, that didn’t work out so well last time, did it? This type of short-sightedness is my own embarassment for my fellow co-religionists or whatever the word is.
I hear you. Liberal Jews have this problem of embracing those who screw us and screwing those who embrace us. When I was growing up in the Bronx, registering as a democrat was as sacrosanct as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and circumcisions. Back then being a dem meant something, We have nothing to fear but fear itself, The buck stops here, Ask not what your country can do for you. My parents switched parties around the same time Pres Reagan did, and for the reason, they didn’t leave the party, the party left them.
