Posted on 07/21/2014 6:10:57 AM PDT by servo1969
American Jews overwhelmingly tend to vote Democrat for one simple reason: they see the choice as being between 1) the Democrats and their belief in nothing versus 2) the Republicans and their beliefs based on their Christian faith and heritage.
Given that choice, then, rather than side with people of faith which they see as a different and potentially antagonistic belief system they feel safer in the party that is devoid of any values or convictions.
The thinking behind this is that, if people believe in things then they might fight for those things. They might even commit atrocities in their name. Only those who believe in nothing have nothing to kill or fight for. If everyone just believed in nothing, the thinking goes: then the Jews would be safe, for if one doesnt believe in anything then they cant believe the Jews are bad.
These people believe that it is beliefs and not what was believed that led to the Holocaust and to all of the other worlds atrocities. Its why the Modern Liberals Blueprint for Utopia as rendered by John Lennon sought a world without countries, religions or any other values or convictions (just all the people living for today.)

I think a lot more of that has to do with the fact that many influential Jews - doctors, lawyers, businessmen, entertainers - benefit financially from their association with Govco.
Hitler was an atheist so that worked out well. They are Marxists before their faith.
Pray America wakes up
Why did some Jews collaborate with the NAZIs. Progressives are just NAZIs in a shiny new wrapper.
This article is unconvincing that American Jews prefer a party of no values to one of Christian values.
Actually there is a very simple explanation for why Jews vote for Democrats.
The reason: Because their parents did. It’s the traditional way you vote in elections. Your mother and father voted that way. Your grandparents, great grandparents and great great grandparents all voted that way.
Who are you to break with a tradition that binds your people, that holds you together?
Tradition is a very strong factor in Jewish families. In the case of politics that translates to support for Democrats. But I think that tradition will slowly dissolve as Jews wake up to the fact that they are voting against their own best interests.
Wow... the comments under the article are seriously heated.
I was talking about this yesterday, how some believe liberals have no religion or are not religious, and all I could say was “Are you kidding me? Are you for real?” There is NOBODY more hadcore religious on this planet than liberals, NOBODY. Communism is their religion and Capitalism and the US they see as the devil which is why they support radical Islam so much. They see radical Muslims as their brothers in arms against “The great Satan”. But one thing that differs from liberals and Muslims is they believe fascism should be applied to OTHER people not them. Communism is their religion but only OTHER people should live under it not them.
Abortion is the sacrament to their false gods.
Bottom line is that they are liberals first and Jews second.
Is there any other group that lives in urban areas at such a high rate as Jews? And if so, are any less liberal? Maybe its just a question of why they tend to live there. Is there any difference between how rural living Jews tend to vote and urban living Jews tend to vote like in the split between rural and urban voters in the general voting population?
Like Soros, there would always be a handful. However, it was the arabs who really rallied to the Nazis en masse.
And still do.
No, Hitler claimed to be a Christian. He hated atheism.
” “I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord..” Hitler
Which points out a singular problem that the LibTards fall into with abandon along with some Conservatives ... Labels. They just toss labels around in a kind of “one size fits all” manner. A Christian is this. An atheist is that. A Socialist is this. A Fascist is that.
The problem is that it rids one of the need to actually think. “Oh it’s a Christian, I’ll hate it.” It’s also a VERY easy and simple method to control the masses and it is happening now in spades. It’s my primary reason for loathing “news entertainment” whether it be of the Conservative or Liberal variety.
This article is fatally flawed in that it presents two extremes as the only choices. And while labels can be used to help move a discussion along, to rely upon them only stunts thinking and analysis which means that in the end ... you lose and all the screaming and label tossing in the world is not going to change that.
25 years of prosecuting taught me one thing. Labels mean almost nothing except while you’re having a beer with friends. Only facts matter. Facts you like, facts you don’t like and everything in between. Labels get in the way of facts.
There are many reasons Jews (to my great frustration) vote for the Dems. It’s just not as simple as expressed here.
The leftist democrat party is not a party of no values.
Their core value is of the spirit of anti-Christ.
And, he slightly touches on it, but misses his grip -
this is about destroying the Christian influence in this world.
Like Soros, there would always be a handful. However, it was the arabs who really rallied to the Nazis en masse.
Yet American Jews would praise “Progressivism” even as their liberal friends push them into the ovens.
I sometimes wonder if God has left them to their foolishness.
BS. Savage nailed it. American jews brought a lot of cultural baggage with them from the old world, including an unhealthy dose of communist thought which persists to this day.
Hitler rewrote the Bible with the State as the center of worship. He revised the ten commandments and added two more. He and Himler dreamed of ruling a pagan society.
Hitler was many things but he wasn’t a Christian.
You know, “communism” in the form of mutual ownership is safely practiced in certain settings.
At the level of the family, primarily.
Amongst your fellow church community, to a certain extent...
The primary factor is voluntary association.
But the devil always perverts what God intends for good.
And this mutual sharing, when forced by the State, and against the will of the participants, is evil.
Just another example of a twisting and perversion of the things of God into something that serves the agenda of the god of this world.
Realize, many "Jews" in America today are secular Jews, or basically agnostic or atheist ethnic Jews. To them, the high holy days are like our secular holidays or our secularized former religious holidays. They take time off work, they "celebrate" the holidays. They ponder things on Yom Kippur, they may even go to the synagogue that one day a year, but it is more a holiday tradition than a truly religious event. Judaism has become like Buddhism to them, feel good practices, a sense of belonging, but without the need for a deity.
To tell the truth, Israel foments this. Their Right of Return is based first and foremost on ethnic Jewishness. There is no requirement to practice the Jewish religion, however professing another faith disqualifies one from immigrating.
This is why most Jews in America vote Democrat. Because most Jews in America are are not significantly religious, and in fact fear religion.
It’s hard to come up with a blog comment for Evan, as he pretty much says it all.
I recently got back in contact with a very close friend whom I had not had contact with for at least 30 years. We both grew up on the East Coast, Jewish, he in Long Island, me in NJ. We were pals from 1970-1986 and went through all manner of adventures together. We are about the same age, and among a hundred other things, we talked about the trials and tribulations of dealing with our aging parents.
In doing so, it became clear that his folks regarded themselves as solid Communists; and weren’t really activists about it, this is what they felt and probably how they voted and simply how they regarded themselves. Very matter of fact.
The idea that communism has been responsible for the greatest mass murders in history and all the other negatives about it and that only in America are you free to think and act that way, whereas in Communist countries you damn well better think and act that way...those thoughts just seem to vanish in the rear view mirror. They just don’t get added into the pan on the balance-scale. Pretty remarkable.
Yep, and the more one studies modern Progressivism, the more one realizes it is nothing more than a State Religion which they are working to establish.
Indeed, it is a State Religion with all the dogmatism, blind faith and fanaticism of the Spanish Inquisition. It has their own sacraments (abortion), apostles (Saul Alinsky), saints (Karl Marx) and demons (non-crony Capitalism).
Precursors and precedents to the 7 yr kingdom of the anti-Christ.
Jews vote liberal because they are of the left, and often it’s leaders and thinkers.
They have always voted democrat in America, except when they could find something viable that was to the left, such as the Socialist party in 1920 that got 38% of the Jewish vote.
Other groups can change their vote, for instance blacks reversed their firm historical voting history in a single election in 1936, and never looked back, but the Jewish vote has never gone republican.
This is really crazy thinking, devoid of any grounding in reality. Everybody has a belief system.
Jews vote for Democrats for the same reason “Christians” and any other Democrats vote for Democrats. They hate God.
Yes. The party that booed God three times at their national convention, and heckled the man that suggested, and insisted they not remove God from their party’s platform. Representing over half of Americans.
Revival might save the US.
This guy missed the mark on practically all the premises he set out as the basis for his argument. Hell there aren’t even two parties anymore.
But Demonrats weren’t always so anti-religious
I’m sure the Jews voted for the “Catholic” Kennedys, Pelois, Leahy et al
He nailed it in “how modern liberals think” though.
Big city life is communal. City slickers own very little personally and share their housing and transportation. The modern Democrat party caters to the interests of commune dwellers and Jews mostly live in communes. If you compare a population density map to a voter map, big gov voters take majority control the world over at a population density of about 1,000 people per square mile.
I know. I keep seeing a people repeatedly making responses to other people and then, in the very last sentence, implying that the other person is an idiot. I don’t get it. They do it almost every time for no apparent reason.
“I disagree with what you said because A, B and C................ you moron.”
The reason most Jews align with the DemocRat party is because they are secular Jews who don’t closely follow the faith and are liberal politically.
All the way back to Abraham, Lot, Sodom and Gomorrah...
God warned his people of the wickedness of cities.
“This article is unconvincing that American Jews prefer a party of no values to one of Christian values.”
Yeah, I don’t agree with the article either; except the premise that American Christians see the Jewish faith as a precursor or component of their own. I’m Baptist and my church most certainly is not anti-Jewish. In fact we organize several trips to Israel each year. My personal opinion as to why American Jews is that Jews and Blacks, due to historic persecutions, reflexively vote liberal not willing to acknowledge that liberal dogma and politics are against their core beliefs....
“Precursors and precedents to the 7 yr kingdom of the anti-Christ.”
I thought we’ve just about gone through it now.
If you want to make a liberal mad, tell them the truth.
If you want to make them REALLY mad, tell them the truth that their ideology is based on hatred of Christ and Christians.
Gettn’ close! Maranatha!
Not only their parents...they have been bred to be victims for millennia.
Bump for later.
So American Jews have forgotten who liberated the concentration camps ?
Maybe each one needs to take a little trip over to the Allied cemeteries and see how “evil” those buried under crosses are
Yeah, I’d like to know if there is a difference between how urban living Jews vote compared to those that live in rural areas. The problem would probably be finding enough Jews living in rural areas.
DNC convention 2012
Do they vote for the Dems or vote against conservative Republicans?
It’s become the standard way of discourse, unfortunately. Happens out here too.
Whatever happened to good old-fashioned reason, logic, and rational conversation...?
“...If you want to make a liberal REALLY mad, ...”
Just say “No” to whatever they’re demanding ... then get out of the way REAL quick.
