Fla. Pol Resigns After Anti-Christian Comment Goes Viral
breitbart.c0m ^ | 09-07-2012 | Breitbart News

Posted on 09/07/2012 9:04:19 PM PDT by bronxville

A Florida Democrat has resigned from his county chairmanship after anti-Christian comments he made at the Democratic National Convention spread through an online video.

Mark Siegel resigned Friday from his post in the Palm Beach County Democratic Party, according to the communications director of the state's Democratic Party, Brannon Jordan.

Siegel, speaking to a conservative journalist in Charlotte, NC, said he wasn't a fan of Christianity because "the Christians just want [Jews] to be there so we can be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ."

"Terrie Rizzo, the county's vice chairman, has replaced Siegel as chairman. Siegel's resignation reverses his actions on Thursday, one day after the comments first went public -- where he publicly apologized but stated he would hold on to his job." http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/07/Fla-Pol-Resigns-After-Saying-Christians-Want-to-Slaughter-Jews

I think this is the first time in my life where a Jew has turned the blood libel around against Christians.

He actually believes that American conservatives wants Jews to die in order to bring Jesus back, and he believes that our pro-Israel stance is responsible for terrorism and will cause the destruction of the Jewish state.

Liberals are sick, but this takes it to a whole new level of evil madness.

How is this different from Biden and other Dems (in and out of the press) telling Blacks that Republicans to put them in chains?

It’s all inflamatory socialist group hate crap. It gets people discriminated against, beaten and killed just like it used to do. These people are the neokkk. Debase, hate, incite mob violence and discriminate against different ones for power this time - post segregation.

I can’t stand democraps. The more things “progress” the more they stay the same in the history of failure and misery.

“Siegel, speaking to a conservative journalist in Charlotte, NC, said he wasn’t a fan of Christianity because “the Christians just want [Jews] to be there so we can be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ.”

Really?? That’s the first time I’ve ever heard this. I thought we were instructed to pray for the peace of Jerusalem?? Jesus Christ returns on His own schedule and on His own conditions. There’s not one thing man can do to change that. God’s plan, not ours.

These democrat people are truly moronic fools and demented lunatics. Seriously. I used to think this was a joke, but it’s actually true.

Jesus was a nice Jewish boy. His father , Joesph. They were carpenters. They used to make crucifixes for the Romans Oy, they were glad to get the work. Yeah, Jesus. Funny kid. Once, my neighbor, Lazarus, he died. This Jesus kid comes over. Next day I see Lazarus walking. I said “Hey Lazarus, I heard you were dead, you look great!’’.

Sounds like an inflamed imagination rather than a reading of any sort of modern Christian theology.

If I wanted to try to piece together a claim like that, I think I’d know how. I’d take the part about speeding the coming of Jesus Christ (which does not literally specify how) and then put that next to the part about only a third of Israel surviving what is popularly called the Tribulation. And then I would claim that Christians feel they have to engineer these events by any means, the other moral teachings of the religion be damned. That would be a mighty shaky basis, though.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, Mr. Siegel, the Jews win and finally get their prophecied Messiah. Far more of those who seek to destroy them will be slaughtered than will Jews.

This message below from me to John Lewis applies to you as well, Mr Siegel:


You’re demonstrating to us all, John Lewis, why the Dems get away with enslaving blacks like you in America.

Lewis/Siegel , blacks/Jews. Whatever. You’re all behaving stupidly

Let’s supersize that. Seigel, you are a Super-Putz, just like Debbie Wasserman-Putz. Why don’t you two looney tunes get together and form a new political party, the Meshuganah Party (Crazy Party)? It would be fitting (like a straight jacket).

PS: I get the feeling in my synagogue that Obama isn’t being accepted as the new Messiah. Even old Rahm “The Ballerina” Emanuel left the shual. Thank goodness that he went back to be a plague (or all 10 of them) on Chicago, where the downtown is beginning to look like Baghdad on a bad day.

In all fairness to Jews i actually notice myself that some Christians view Jews as virgins at a pagan sacrifice

All envious and coveted

I would not ljke that either.....

My support for Israel has nothing to do with end times

I simply like them and see Islam as a problem we both share....they could be animist...most i knew in Israel were sure not very observant back then

Some Jews in America ...not Israel ....eschew Christians far more than they do Islam

Like this former pol in question

So many Protestants make the mistake of assuming that the modern State of Israel has something to do with the Law of Moses.

It doesn’t. But they see Islam for what it is. A theopolitical movement bent on apocalyptic world domination.

And it must be stopped.

only a third of Israel surviving what is popularly called the Tribulation.

There are theologians that define Israel as the entire Jewish congregation, with Christianity as a sub set of the Jews. Out of four billion only 1.3 billion will survive.

Yes I know the Jews are the smaller number. since Christianity derived from the Jews I labeled them as a sub set.
