More suburban Jews turning to the Republican Party
Daily Herald ^ | 7/8/12 | Kerry Lester

Posted on 07/08/2012 10:49:17 AM PDT by Nachum

Standing at a Skokie Holiday Inn before a table full of “Obama! Oy Vey!” buttons, Anita Ashe and Ellen Warsaw had a strikingly similar story to tell. The women, both Skokie residents, were born and raised in an environment where voting Democratic was as natural for their families as the Friday Shabbat dinners that were a regular part of their Jewish faith. Despite that political history, Ashe in recent years has found herself attending events sponsored by he Chicago Chapter of the Republican Jewish Coalition after becoming “more and more conservative as I read more and get perspectives on the issue.”

I don’t really know for sure. I had a girl-friend sometime back that sort of explained it to me. It has to do with being socially acceptable. Not only to family, other Jews but also at work.

They ‘must’ fit in wherever they are at. It’s a sort of camouflage that makes them feel if not invisible then at least a part of the background. And that in turn makes them feel ‘safe’.

Sorry. They may, in a fit of pique, register Republican. However, whenever thay enter the voting booth they will start to shake, foam at the mouth, fall writhing to the ground, then rise and in a state of automatic writing vote Democrat. They cannot help it, it is their nature, their essence, their very being. Jews are the first people genetically programmed as Democrats-averitable wonder!

It doesn’t make sense, but I can explain it. First of all, many, many, many Jews came here from Russia at the end of the 19th c. fleeing the Czar and pogroms. So when the Bolsheviks came to power, they thought that was good, because the Bolsheviks did away with their enemy, the Czar. Then, Jews found that even when they worked hard, earned money, and achieved academically, they were denied entry to universities (this was up to the 1950s) and denied entry to hotels, clubs, and even kept from purchasing homes in states like CN. They perceived that the people blocking them everywhere were the WASP establishment, aka Republicans. Added to this, many Jews were barely observant, but because of the animus against their ethnicity, they developed anti-Christian feelings. I know that my father, who was Irish C. was ridiculed for being a Jew when he served in the military during WWII - because he was educated and was always reading

Apparently, some American Jews are finally abandoning the herd mentality and actually thinking about who and what they are voting for instead of reflexively voting for the candidate with 'D' after their name. This is encouraging but may not make a big difference in this election. We'll see if the trend catches on or is a one-time fluke tied to Obama's anti-Israel stance.

Now, if only this also applied to black voters and their herd mentality when it comes to voting party instead of person or, in Obama's case, voting color and party over rational thought and realizing that your 'brother' Obama is laughing at your slavish devotion to his skin color and doesn't give a flip about you.

I’ve heard they vote dem because Eisenhower belonged to the country club, which at that time tended to exclude jews from joining.

Still hard to believe this is happening in Skokie.

Excellent explanation kabumpo your entire post should be a Icon on FR as a primer...

Tangent to this, 2 things Conservatives should never due around Reform Jews, at least the ones I know ( I am close to the community here...) and more...

1.) Do not try to convert them to Christianity, it pisses them off royal, and maybe the Nexus-Lexus of why they stay away from the Republican Party, because so many Christian Conservatives try to hammer both points home. Let them practice their faith, if you can reach them at an epistemological level politically, be happy with that victory.
2.) Do not say yes I have Jewish friends, that are members of Jews for Jesus, Oh, that is a real sore subject.
3.) The Reform Jews I am close to are family orientated, busy, and still are getting their media from the lame streams and will not go to Fox or "Glenn". You could discuss what Glenn says about Anti-Semetism in Europe and like I did, and they were shocked they did not know about it. The bigger surprise was when I told them "Glenn" is the only one taking about it. It may take a book from Levin, Prager, or Horowitz to get the conversation going.
3a.) Many of my Reform friends still listen to NPR, and read the NYT's. Very educated, but do not know the following authors: Ayn Rand, Fredrick Hayek, etc. etc. Loan them your books in that arena our "classics" if you will....
4.) Subject matters we believe in Lower Taxes and Gun rights have tidbits that will give any person cause to challenge their core beliefs. Denoting firearm ownership for Seniors and the less than mobile adults as an equalizer for thugs got the attention of a Reform Jew I spoke too, because it made sense. Ditto that a conversation about the Flat-Tax S. Forbes Ideas when someone was going through estate-tax-hell. "Our" ideas are not reaching many Americans where it effects their lives, Reform Jews as well. The Conservative movement has the trouble of contextualizing our ideas into little gems like my example.

As a rap up, if you want to make inroads with Jews you know to at least consider pulling the lever of "O" please do not got there for items 1 or 2......

Few and fewer all the time. My family (Jewish all) is an example. In the past it was 5-2 democrat advantage. Now it is 6-1 republican (and the last holdout is wavering). For the record, I have never voted democrat in my life.

I wonder the same thing about Asians. They come here, they're successful, and yet they vote Democrat. The only reason a businessperson would vote Democrat (IMHO) is for protection. Protection from the Democrats.

First of all, I'm glad some Jewish voters are beginning to think for themselves. But secondarily, I worry about the Republican party getting swamped with "social moderates."

What is there that's Jewish about "social moderation?" Is the Torah "socially moderate" on homosexuality? Is Halakhah "socially moderate" on abortion on demand? The big secret is that Judaism is actually more like islam than chr*stianity (especially American chr*tianity). It is a "totalistic" Theocratic religion that regulates all of life. How can one belong to such a religion and then be afraid of "theocracy?" It is a Theocracy!!!

One difference between totalistic Judaism and totalistic islam is that Judaism does not aspire to convert the entire human race to Judaism, but to the Noachide Laws. Another is that, unlike islam (a universal religion) Judaism is the religion of a nation in exile, at present without the fullness of the Torah polity. And that polity in its fullness does include things like capital punishment for certain sins (provided all requirements are met) and animal sacrifices. This is not a "modern," new age religion. And I wish chr*stians whose hearts are allegedly bleeding with love for the Jewish People (and for the Bible they claim to love so much) would think a moment or two before screaming about how only savages would ever execute someone for adultery by stoning him/her to death. Oh really?

No, Jews in the present exile are not going to embark on a program of forcing all non-Jews to convert to Judaism (or to Noachism), but chr*stians who object to total religion are just as much of a mystery to me as Jews who are afraid of "theocracy."

Why can't Jewish Republicans bring their total Torah philosophy with them? That's the question.

I kid you not. I have always been staunchly conservative. There are more conservative Jews than you would think. The media just doesn't give us much coverage. They like to maintain the illusion that Jews (and Blacks) are a monolithic democrat block. Not true anymore. As far as breeding, I'm past that stage now, but can still spread good ideas to those who may be receptive.

Jonah Goldberg: Why are Jews liberal? In all its various forms, there is probably no question I get asked more. I have not yet had the pleasure of being edified by Norman Podhoretz’s take, which I’m told is a great read, so let me offer a sliver of my own answer to the question.

The liberalism of American Jews is, I believe, what social scientists would call an over-determined phenomenon. Some of it has to do with broader social trends that Jews are not immune to. The over-educated often drift toward liberalism out of the arrogance that they’re smart enough to have all the answers. The wealthy, contrary to much liberal propaganda, are trending more liberal every day, particularly among “idea worker” types. Secularism is one of the most reliable indices of liberalism and many Jews seem to think that secularism is a religious imperative.

Then there are the various and sundry factors derived from the unique history of the Jews. In Old Europe, Jews were often a special class who looked to the throne for protection from the anti-Semitic rabble and the pogroms (“If only the Czar knew!”). This gives Jews a long heritage of viewing statism as a survival strategy. The big wave of Jews who came to the United States at the beginning of the 20th century brought the thriving fad of socialism with them and they saw an America that seemed to confirm the need for leftwing reform.

Anti-Semitism was long associated with institutions that seemed more Republican and conservative (the reverse is closer to the truth today). Harry Truman was a midwife to Israel’s birth.

And that introduces the Holocaust. The impact of the Holocaust cuts deep and long. But one result has been a tendency among American Jews to think that fighting for a progressive, statist, vision of “social justice” is a moral, even definitional, imperative for Jews today.

There’s also the simple fact that people tend to share the views of their parents. Contrary to the cultural mythology of children rebelling from their parents, the vast majority of people inherit their politics, just like their eye color, from their Mom and Dad. Perhaps, because Jews mix politics and religion so thoroughly, this tendency is even stronger among members of the tribe.

The knot of Jewish liberalism is large, old and has many strands. It will take a long time to untie it.

Jonah Goldberg is a nationally syndicated columnist and the author of Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning.

It’s in the Torah to always help the widow, fatherless and poor among them. (Although, it’s also in the Torah that if you follow Torah there will be no poor among you...) So to be responsible for the welfare of the people, that is “obviously” the democrats, because they do the most to help the needy, barf (sorry, gotta go clean up).

I used to be a liberal Jew same as others (some were socialists) in my extended family. But I have been conservative now for about 25 years. People can change. I think liberal Jews shut themselves off from conservative opinion that is pro-Israel and pro-America. Some are reflexive liberal voters but read nothing about politics. They have other consuming interests

Well, thank you, Taildragger, for your appreciation. I grew up in an intensely Jewish ultraleftist milieu, so this is something I know. I would say that 99% of suburban, middle class and well to do Jews are (unconscious) leftists first and Jews second. If there was an election with Hitler running as a Dem versus George Washington as a Republican, they would vote for Hitler.
Recently I forwarded a piece on the killing of the Jewish children in Toulouse, France (by Greenfield or Steyn) to several Jewish friends - they all wrote back rejecting and repudiating the article - it was truly shocking to me. One of them even wrote something snide about Ann Romney - who had nothing whatsoever to do with the article - in his response to me.
So they don’t even care about their own brethren if the context of the tragedy isn’t liberal (i.e., fundamentalist Christians have done something bad).

You obviously aren’t a frequent Freeper. I have never seen any “Jew-bashing” on FR. Many of us on FR are in fact members of Jewish families. Many folks are simply trying to answer the question that was initially posed. And, it is a good one that quite a few noted Jewish scholars have attempted to address.

FWIW, you will not EVER find any group besides Free Republic that supports Israel more.

BTW, Free Republic is not the place for thin-skinned, easily offended folks devoid of critical thinking.

Because most middle class suburban Jews are not observant or even informed about the torah. They are ethnically Jewish, but their real religion is liberalism. They think this keeps them safe from attacks by the unwashed, illiterate goyim.

That would imply that once critical mass is achieved, where being conservative is the norm in some Jewish community and being socialist makes you an object of scorn and ostracism, that things would tip over rapidly.

I'm not so sure. The love affair with socialism has been going on a long time, and I think there's something there more fundamental than just "wanting to belong". It begs the question of how socialism became the accepted norm in the first place.

Maybe it has something to do with the % that live in rural areas vs. urban areas. I think any group’s members might generally trend to be more liberal if they live in urban areas more often than not. I mean, is there any group that has such a high % of members living in urban areas that are really conservative? I don’t know, just throwing it out there, could be completely off. Seems like generally the cities are blue and the rural areas red. Also not discounting historic and other cultural reasons.

There are great conservative Jews on FR and in the conservative media.
