Another Take On Why Jews Vote Democrat (Evan Sayet)
EvanSayet.com ^ | 7-18-2014 | Evan Sayet

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 doesn’t believe in anything then they can’t 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 world’s atrocities. It’s why the Modern Liberal’s 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.

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.

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.

"Only those who believe in nothing have nothing to kill or fight for""

Those who claim to believe in nothing unwittingly find something nefarious to fill the void. Namely communism or something like it, which is responsible for at least 100 million deaths in the last century alone. They replace God with the state, which is actually more like replacing God with the devil. Everyone serves one master or the other even if they don't see it themselves.

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 it’s 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?

Reform/Reconstructionist/"Conservative" Judaism is not a religion so much as a political arm of the Democrat Party. Orthodox Judaism is an exception to those "denominations", as most of them take their religion and lives seriously and thus vote Republican. (Whether or not they support the GOPe or the Tea Party is another question entirely, but a question which needs to be taken extremely seriously.)

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.

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.

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.

This is a valid explanation. I was listening to Michael Medved on Friday, and he was going over a survey on respect for religions. What is interesting is Evangelical Christians hold Jews in high respect, but Jews hold Evangelical Christians in very low respect.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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....
