Lefties Drag Cantor's Jewish Faith Into Shocking Loss, When They May Have Contributed to His
Newsbusters ^ | 6/10/14 | Tom Blumer

Posted on 06/10/2014 9:23:02 PM PDT by Nachum

Desperate to tie David Brat's shocking defeat tonight of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia's Republican Congressional Primary to something other than voter resistance to illegal-immigrant amnesty, some on the left are already implying that Cantor's Jewish faith had something to do with the result. The fact that the seven-term Congressman has, as far as I can tell, never gotten grief of any kind from either party about his religious affiliation seems not to matter.

After the jump, readers will find a couple of religion-tainted tweets from bona fide members of the liberal media elite, followed by interesting items I found indicating that the left-leaning Jewish community's aggressive push for "immigration reform" in a district whose voters clearly oppose it may have helped do him in.

Insanity. Cantor was elected and re-elected as a Jewish Republican. It’s irrelevant. What brought him down was being in Washington too long and losing touch with his district.

Big-government globalist loses to local dude who happens to know a thing or two about economics and promises to look out for the best interests of Americans first.

End of story.

Classism like this is a lazy way of avoiding looking at the issues on their own merit. I by now anticipate that Democrats will do this, but Republicans?

There’s a lot of commonality between the left and evil, not to say that the right can’t be evil too. But they have different evils.

Yeah, as if after all these years the voters just realized he’s a Jew. The only thing I can say about Jews and the Republican Party is: Why aren’t more of them with us? The Dems are pretty clear about their anti-Semitism, especially the black caucus.

Dave Wasserman (U.S. House editor of the Cook Political Report) — “There will be lots of 2nd guessing tmw on Cantor loss #VA07. Surely will focus on debt ceiling/leadership role, but his religion a role too?”

David S. Bernstein (”Contributing editor for Boston magazine, contributing analyst for WGBH, formerly of the Boston Phoenix, covering local, state, & national politics and policy”) — “So the only Jewish Republican in Congress (either house) is about to lose his primary?”

Conservatives support Israel without fail. If Benjamin Netanyahu were to run for office here in America, his TEA Party support would be astronomical. And it's well known that our next President, pictured below, is 100% on the side of Israel.

I'm still trying to figure this one out. We have a long sad history of embracing those who screw us, and screwing those who embrace us. Back in daBronx, registering as a dem was as sacrosanct as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and circumcisions. My parents switched parties around the same time Pres. Reagan did, and for the same reason, they didn't leave the party, the party left them. But as the Jewish vote goes, they were the exception rather than the rule.

I didn’t know Cantor was Jewish until today.

I’ve know he’s a pro-amnesty, pro-Obamacare RINO for a couple of years. It’s not about faith, it’s about the republic.

According to Dick Morris she called someone that back when Clinton was governor, I think.

It has nothing to do with being in favor of amnesty. What does a national death wish have to do with anything? haha.
