Jewish leadersí Democratic bias an outrage in wake of DNC email flap
BIZPACReview.com ^ | 7/5/2012 | Alan Bergstein

Posted on 07/05/2012 10:29:03 AM PDT by SmileRight

It’s no great secret that the leaders of local Jewish organizations are Democrats and fervent supporters of the party. There has been so much controversy over this relationship recently that the only way to clear the air would be to urge Jewish leaders to publicly declare their political affiliations. Then their congregations and organizational members would at least have a better idea of what's motivating these leaders’ sermons or organizational policies. Many members of synagogues and Jewish groups assume that their leaders are politically neutral and have only the interests of Israel and Jews at the top of their agendas. Not so.

The recent exposure of local Democratic National Committee member Evelyn Garcia's hateful emails about Israel has drawn no official reaction from Jewish leaders...

The silence of the ADL is deafening. In spite of Garcia's accusation of 'mass concentration prison camps', she's still running for a state House seat. Unbelieveable!

The human mind is a very curious thing. When confronted with a totally illogical set of facts, some of them decide to retreat to the “last known position”, regardless of the fact that the last known position was also without merit. Little kids do this by closing their eyes, putting their hands over their ears and humming really loudly when they don’t want to hear something.

The typical American Jew is a leftist first, a Jew second and an American third. Keeping that in mind will explain all of their behavior.

These Jewish “Leaders?” are the people once described as “useful idiots”. I find that phrase as too complimentary.
They are, in reality “traitors”, selling their own down the drain in exchange for a position of prestige.
Personally, I have increased my personal communication with G-d, while severing all contacts with the traitor class.
When GOD forbid, catastrophe comes to Israel’s door, these NOW silent voices will by those caterwauling the loudest.
And what will they wail? “O, Lord, how could you let this happen once more?” The answer, “Go find a mirror.”

Israel is the ONLY democracy in the Middle East. I back Israel 100% AND I'm Christian.

I've also never met a "Jewish-American" - all the people I've know who were Jewish described themselves as Americans. Period. Where do you get this stuff from?

It’s as though the Jews are once again being led to the ovens — and once again they offer little if any resistance.

What a disgrace the democrats in Palm Beach County are. The leadership has no about this anti-Semite’s emails for months and tried to cover them up.

“Many members of synagogues and Jewish groups assume that their leaders are politically neutral” - DEEP SH*T, folks.

Only the retarded baby at the synagogue doesn’t know how socialist Jews are.

“It’s as though the Jews are once again being led to the ovens” - nope, they are organizing the parade themselves. And, they have been both the intellectual drivers and the local workers for socialism, even though their efforts with socialism under the Third Reich had “deleterious consequences”.

“and once again they offer little if any resistance.”

Once again, they kept the Beast of Socialism alive in their warped and socialism infected hearts and minds.

A myth. The Warsaw Ghetto, for example, held out longer than the nation of France.

Yeah, it’s because we’re blinded. If only the scales would fall off our eyes! Pffft.

In reality, all it takes is a casual read of FR to see dumbass posts like yours for an average Jewish guy to conclude that conservatives are viscious anti-semite idiots.

I wouldn't put it like the previous poster did, but it really does seem like Jews disproportionately support a party that seems to be have policies and position inimical to Jews in general, and certainly the state of Israel in particular. from an outsider's perspective, it could be intimated that something in Jewish philosophy causes this predisposition to support socialists. I find it really hard to wrap my mind around, because I would think that if for no other reason, history would make the Jew my natural ally in supporting the maximum individual liberty. Granted, I'd think the same thing of black folk as well, as who better than a former slave would understand the importance of arms to a free man.

Sadly, the world often doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I never have understood the democrat antipathy towards the only civilized country in the entire region. I probably never will.

Good luck convincing my Rabbi I am anti-Semitic.

However - I am rather prejudiced against treason. And, to advocate socialism in America (unless advocating a Constitutional Amendment) is arguably treason.

Adams was correct about the necessity of property’s sacred status. We didn’t listen and now we pay the price.

In closing, could you define why my post was “dumbass”? Did I make a factual error?

A myth. The Warsaw Ghetto, for example, held out longer than the nation of France.

True, and quite a well made argument. However, “held out longer than the French” might be seen as ‘damning with faint praise’.

What disturbs me is that the total percentage of Jews who fought was deplorably low. If one is going to be killed, at least take some with you. Perhaps the Viking were right, and your number of servants in the afterlife depends on the number you killed while alive.

;-)

However, as any Arab can attest, Jews in Israel can and do kill when forced to so do. Whether American Jews will even bother to vote against the Mombassa Mother F*cker in the next election remains to be seem. From the Temple Israel argument/cat fight here at Miami, an argument could be made that the issue may yet to be resolved. One must hope.

Debbie Washerperson-Schultz could tell you all about it. However, rumor has it that when she is questioned about it, she is likely to go Full Yenta on you, so use ear plugs.

;-)

Despite the fact that the posted piece by Alan Bergstein was for a media outlet geared to a regional (Palm Beach, FL) readership, the takeover of nominally non-political Jewish organizations by partisan Democrat hacks is a general national trend. This is particularly true in the area of "Jewish" charities which have a symbiotic interest in big government.

But one Jewish organization that 'Rats will never dominate is the Republican Jewish Coalition! (Probably not the Zionist Organization of America as well.)

Bergstein makes excellent points. The 'Rat party and some of its officials have all too often taken outrageous positions against the best interests of Israel and against the interests of many Jews in the United States, and prominent Jewish Democrats - often so-called Jewish "leaders" - are reluctant to push back, especially when the antisemitic and anti-Israel rumblings come from blacks and (to a lesser extent) Hispanics.

At least some Jews are starting to taking notice and are detoxifying themselves from lifelong addictions to the Dems.

This article is particularly significant because it emanates from Florida, where even a small shift in the Jewish vote toward the GOP might make the difference in how the state's electoral votes go in November, and could even determine the outcome of the national presidential election.

You mean the ADL, AJC, Bnei Brit, and other establishment organizations have just BECOME thinly disguised DOP hacks? I thought they always have been. Maybe they’ve reached some new height (low?) of DOP hackery, something that really raises eyebrows. Don’t worry. They’ll top that.

After Jewbacca twice called me a liar on another thread. I looked you up.
Notice: He didn't say I'm miss informed or your information is bad or some other logical explanation but telling me that I intended to deceive. Which I still believe my information is correct but that is irrelevant here.

Jewbacca stated to another Jewish person named GladesGuru:
"In reality, all it takes is a casual read of FR to see dumbass posts like yours for an average Jewish guy to conclude that conservatives are viscious anti-semite idiots."


Granted i have seen some conservative statements by you but you are intentionally attempting to upset people. I would like to know why?

I asked Jim Robinson and the Admin in on this is because of the no trolling rules. Why someone seems to troll is always important in my opinion. Some people have been banned whom may not have deserved it. I can understand why there are a large number of troller everyday. But I still feel bad for those that didn't deserve it.

I know GG personally. Although he is sometimes not as tactful as advisable, I think the reason he takes this line is that he's not thrilled with the portent of the backlash that may well be the lot of all American Jews because of the public visibility of the socialists among them.

I think we'd all hate to see a Rabbi Shifren pay for the greeds and misdeeds of so many JINO ACLU lawyers.

‘Granted i have seen some conservative statements by you but you are intentionally attempting to upset people. I would like to know why?”

Well, seems you have somewhat the same problem with the fortunately rare instances of Jewbacca’s ire as do I.

However, the real issue is that I am concerned about the obstinate clinging to collectivism/socialism by the large majority of American Jews. It has long been a fear of mine that eventually the patience of America’s largely Christian population may take offense at the collectivism/socialism in which Jews play a disproportionate part.

Jews came to America first from the Caribbean and settled in Charleston and Neuw Amsterdam. Note that the colony management in Amsterdam were not in favor of the Jews settling in Neuw Amsterdam, but Stuyvesant wanted the numbers of people and their skills.

Summation: Jews arrived later and were welcomed as long as they took care of their sick & elderly and were not a burden on society. Smart move on Stuyvesant’s part, as Jews were often the best physicians of their era.

All went well until the Jewish migrations from Germany and Russia who brought their “Brown Shirt Communism” and “Red Shirt Communism” with them.

As another FReepers have pointed out, for years, America’s Jews are disproportionately represented in the “Hallowed Halls of the Academented”. My choice of “academented” is considered, as because a case can be made that no people have suffered under socialism more than Jews, yet they persevere in their commitment to and contribute to, work for, and support for socialism - despite the Third Reich’s National Socialism.

Now I come to what is what I feel may be your complaint - my choice of words. So - why did I use the overt ‘snark’ in the use of “academented”? I could have used more Politically Correct terms. However, there are some thing I do not do. No windows, no bowls, NO PC SPEEK!

If the chattering of the academented has done nothing to raise awareness of the above issue, I have to get the attention of those involved in the issue. Just as the Southerner knows that when the mule gets ‘mule-ish’ the answer sometimes is a “2X4 upside the head”, if I have rendered that saying accurately.

In no small part, American Jews have been both the generals and the soldiers in the charge for socialism in America. While this may have been for the best of intentions, it is also true that as government has expanded into areas far beyond the Constitution’s carefully crafted bounds.

My coreligionists have been rather disproportionately represented at the government feeding trough. Yup - I deliberately used another PC forbidden term, but when the government is paying people for activities that are “un-Constitutional” and charging future generations, I feel justified in raising the issues in any way which may cause at least some discussion.

Better to be accused of “trolling” than letting the issues be ignored.

In closing, I am of the opinion that if Americans had been educated in other than the Prussian modelled Pooblik Skool Collective, the public would have known better than allowing government to do charity. The sad reality is that government usually collects $4 to give $1 to the needy. We can’t afford government charity!

What has the above to do with the issue of Jews in government jobs or taking covernment contracts?

I recommend Googeling “Congressman Davy Crockett” and “Horatio Bunce”. I recommended it because it is somewhat more close to out time than the Founders Era. But the message is the same.

As for Jewbacca’s fear that the average Jewish guy will conclude conservatives are anti-Semites if my posts are read by said “average Jewish guy”, hard data and history can’t hurt. Wasn’t something said about the duty of a Jewish male being to have a family and study the Law?

I suggest non-revisionist history and study of America/American Law in light of Mosaic Law may be acceptable to G*d.

As the Christian would say, the truth shall set you free.

At the least, it may be a vaccine against the lies that are socialism. It couldn’t hoit!

And it might help.

Thanks for asking the questions.
