Why Do Jews Not Vote For Republicans?
www.HughHewitt.com ^ | 02/14/07 | Dean Barnett

Posted on 02/14/2007 3:53:46 PM PST by The Blitherer

ABC’s Jennifer Rubin thinks she knows. According to her report, Mitt Romney announcing his candidacy yesterday at a museum named for Henry Ford has a lot to do with it:

Indeed, the incident may say something not only about Romney but about the GOP's problem with Jews. In his boatload of advisers, Romney apparently did not have anyone to say, "You know, a lot of Jews really hate Ford, and it might mess up your message.”

A few points here to counter Rubin’s hyperbole. At this moment, Romney has less a boatful of advisors than a handful. And, for what it’s worth, among that handful, my lantzmen are amply represented. Furthermore, most Jews don’t know about Henry Ford’s anti-Semitism and those that do couldn’t give a rat’s tuchas about it anyway.

What’s more, obviously Henry Ford’s fame doesn’t derive from his anti-Semitism. Romney’s announcement venue was as much of an issue (to all but the most hyper-sensitive Jews) as a photo-op in front of the Spirit of St. Louis would have been. Like Ford, Charles Lindbergh’s fame had nothing to do with his anti-Semitism. Now if Romney made an appearance at the next Leni Riefenstahl film festival, that would be noteworthy.

As an additional point of note, I’ve heard many Jews say they would never consider driving a German car as payback for the Holocaust. I have never heard a Jew say he wouldn’t drive a Ford, unless it related to the execrable quality of their vehicles. (In my younger days, I too used to say I would never drive a German car. When my financial situation changed, I amended that guideline to the only slightly less principled, “I’ll never drive a Volkswagen.”)

The ginned up controversy over Romney’s venue is hysterical, the kind of eye-roll inducing Jewish protest that makes me want to say to the complainers, “There are some very nasty people who want to exterminate 6 million of our co-religionists. Don’t we have bigger fish to fry?”

The complaints have come from the usual outraged suspects – I believe Alan Dershowitz is leading the charge this time. I love Dersh, but he’s always annoyed over some perceived slight. Dersh, Abe Foxman, Rabbi Heir – whenever these guys enter righteous outrage mode, it’s by nature a classic dog-bites-man story.

But let’s just say for the sake of ridiculous argument that the Republican Party is habitually not sensitive enough to the Jewish community’s concerns. The Democrats are better? Need I remind you that during the Democrats’ last presidential primary season, a so-called Reverend who had organized a virtual pogrom a few years earlier graced the stage at every debate. Since 2004, the Democratic extreme fringe has eagerly equated Zionism to systematic bigotry. The Grey Eminence of the Party, James Earl Carter himself, recently published a dreadful book that ludicrously asserted that Israel is an apartheid state. And, oh yeah, Wesley Clark just last week made a reference to how American foreign policy is dictated by “New York moneymen” with proboscises of unmentioned size.

In short, if you want to find the reason for the Republican failure to do better with the Jews, I guess you could choose to blame it on insufficient Republican sensitivity. But you’ll look pretty dumb if you do.

SO WHY DO JEWS VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS?

I think I’m in a unique position to answer that question since not only are some of my best friends Jewish, I too am Jewish. There are two main reasons: First, the social issues drive Jews into the Democrats’ sweaty embrace; second, it’s a tribal thing.

As far as the social issues are concerned, most Jews are liberal. Very liberal. They’re pro-choice, and they’re very concerned about the separation between church and state. These are serious matters for them. When Bush won re-election, I called to taunt one of my liberal friends, and she launched into a tirade that I think had something to do with back-alley abortions and legalizing date-rape. The American Jewish community in general is very uncomfortable with the virtually every position the Republicans hold on social issues.

And then there’s the church-and-state thing. Jews are concerned about being a powerless minority. The Holocaust haunts them; for a lot of Jews, it still lingers as a cautionary tale of how quickly and totally things can go south even in a society into which they’ve fully assimilated. That’s why nativity scenes and prayers at football games tend to elicit such a visceral reaction from some Jews. These things are reminders of the Jews’ minority status, and thus what they perceive as their vulnerability. (I’m not saying any of this is rational – I don’t think it is. I’m just being descriptive here.)

The other reason so many Jews vote reflexively and exclusively Democrat is because it’s a tribal thing. Their grandparents voted only for Democrats. So too their parents. Many of today’s Jews are going to do the same thing.

I’ve had conversations with Jews whose primary concern is Israel’s well-being. I point out to them that Israel has never had a better friend than George W. Bush. Objectively, that fact is unassailable. And yet Jews who are tribal Democrats refuse to even engage the issue. The notion that George Bush, an Evangelical Christian of all things, is a friend to Israel is so far outside their conceptual framework they can’t process it. They lack the bandwidth.

So what can Republicans do about this? Pretty much nothing. These things take decades to change. The attitude of the far left to Israel will drive some Jews to consider voting Republican, but nowhere near a majority. The South took a century after the Civil War to even consider supporting Republicans.

Like I said, these things take time.

Another Holocaust overseen by the dem-o-rats and their terrorist allies might change their minds. Even that would be doubtful.

When you look at who have been the strongest supporters of a Jewish state, the large support by this nation's Jews of democrats is most puzzling.

I have many Jewish family members, and ALL of them are Republicans.

I have many Jewish in-laws, too, and ALL of them are Democrats.

The differnece? My family has been in Texas for a long, long time, and are generally Sephardic and deeply religious.

My in-laws are not deeply religious --- indeed secular -- and are largely intermarried (indeed, my wife's mother is a nominal convert post-birth, making my wife a gentile), and are all urban dwellers --- LA, Houston, New York.

You know, it funny. The Democrats haven't really supported Israel since Bobby Kennedy was killed by a Muslim terrorist.

Since the 60s cowardice has become the core principal of the Democratic Party. At first, they were just afraid to go fight for their country. Then they got to the point where they started exhibiting Stockholm Syndrome, and claimed that the evil enemy was really good.

They've progressed to the point where they are even afraid to let volunteer heros go fight for them, and they continue to support America's enemies. America's Jews are mostly an extreme example of this, where they support a party which is home to many anti-Semites, and openly supports a group which wants all Jews dead.

A few months ago during the Israel/Hezbollah war there was a pro-Israel rally in New York. Eli Weitzel (so sorry if I spelled his name wrong) spoke and said he was very glad that Bush was in office at this time. Hillary was standing right behind him on the stage.

I'm thinking he probably understands who really supports the Jews.

It stems from this: Most Jews have a good memory of oppression. They associate Dems with liberal defense, so they vote Dem in the belief that Dems will support freedom of association & religion more than Republicans. The truth is that Republicans are more sympathetic to individual freedom than Dems, but Dems get out there and support abortion ("freedom" of choice), knock government (I hate Bush), and offer women candidates (Hillary), which the Jews like. The truth be known, the Jews would be better off with Republicans than Dems, especially in light of recent (30-year)history.

I agree. Also liberalism is worshipped as part of their religion and they know anti-semitsm is perfectly safe because the Democratic party never does what they say. If any action from anti-semitsm were started, that would horrify them, but they would still have to see it first.

A lot of Jewish immigrants from eastern Europe were communists. If their grandchildren are democrats, they've come a long way, but they live in ghettos and never meet any Republicans.

>>>Why Do Jews Not Vote For Republicans?<<<

Why did many Israelites worship the golden calf? Why did many Jews embrace communism in Russia? Why do many embrace liberalism, today? Why do many embrace the ACLU?

Why? Because they have rebelled against God. They have sold their souls to the devil.

Memo: Stop Teaching Evolution (It's A Plot By The Jooooos!)
Dallas Morning News ^ | 2/14/07 | Robert T. Garrett


Posted on 02/14/2007 12:43:16 PM PST by steve-b


The second most powerful member of the Texas House has circulated a Georgia lawmaker's call for a broad assault on teaching of evolution.

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Warren Chisum, R-Pampa, used House operations Tuesday to deliver a memo from Georgia state Rep. Ben Bridges.

The memo assails what it calls "the evolution monopoly in the schools."

Mr. Bridges' memo claims that teaching evolution amounts to indoctrinating students in an ancient Jewish sect's beliefs.

"Indisputable evidence – long hidden but now available to everyone – demonstrates conclusively that so-called 'secular evolution science' is the Big Bang, 15-billion-year, alternate 'creation scenario' of the Pharisee Religion," writes Mr. Bridges, a Republican from Cleveland, Ga. He has argued against teaching of evolution in Georgia schools for several years....

The only Jews who are complaining are from out of state. If they lived here, then they wouldn't have said a word - because older people still love Mitt's dad from when he was Governor in the 1960's and everyone here loves their cars -and Henry Ford (despite his flaw of being anti-Semitic). A lot of it has to do with the fact that so many people are employed or were employed by Ford Motor. And the Fords did and still do a lot for our area. There's the Henry Ford medical centers, Ford high schools, the Henry Ford Community College, the donations to various charities/organizations in our area...

People who only see Ford for being an anti-semite are missing the complete picture of what Ford did for our state. And that's the real tragedy of their comments. MI wasn't the car capital of the world until Ford came along....it's a legacy that we are very proud of here - even if you don't work in the auto industry. It makes you realize how ignorant some people really truly are.

Yes, it is wrong to be an anti-semite, but it is also wrong to assume that this is someone's only characteristic.

Intelligent, highly successful people can be as paranoid, and hysterical, and bigoted, as anyone else. Barnett is largely right in his analysis, I think. He's also right to say this will take time. To put it bluntly, a younger generation less alienated from certain aspects of America, and more intermarried with other Americans, needs to replace the older generation. The GOP and conservatives should not be kissing butt. They should reach out intelligently and UNAPOLOGETICALLY, and without trimming their principles. They should focus on getting the most out of the Jews (and blacks, etc.) that they have, not on converting large numbers. It's a waste of time and the price is too high even if we manage to succeed.

After 29 posts, this is a weird thread.

a] Stereotyping aside, Jewish children are rarely allowed to avoid the expectation of higher education - the 'intelligentsia' put communism into power, supported the CPUSA between the wars, and supports socialism today; hence, more Jewish people probably lean left no matter what.
b] Historic Europe set Jews apart from 'conservative' Christianity, that's how ghettos got started; hence, Jews remain leery of any 'conservative' side of Christianity. (Again, no matter what.)
c] FDR was a democrat (in name only).
d] JFK was a democrat although far removed from today's crop.
e] Western Jews have traditionally been the under dog, the outsider, in any socio/political dust up. It's probably reasonable that they'd support a party that gave best lip service to equality and support for the little guy.
f] It's also likely that they see JWB and his supporters as updated redneck bozos.
g] Finally, also probably the more secular western Jews may see Zionism and their forbear's experiences as old history and believe that distancing themselves from holocaust and that nastiness in Warsaw is a sign of progress.

Let's see, we had prayer at football games since there was football until a liberal fanatic judge legislated it away, prayer in public schools, nativity scenes in public schools and all over every city, Roe v Wade had not yet been artificially stuffed into the Constitution by a liberal fanatic judge, we had Christmas plays in our public schools, judges were not yet attacking "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, "In God We Trust was on our money, we did not yet Hollywood and the far left ACLU redefine the first and fourteenth Amendments and work to outlaw the very foundations of our biblical foundation and legal presuppositions.

America was still a predominately conservative Christian country, just like it had always been since the pilgrims landed (now referred to as fanatics)

With all these things in place by our will and free consent, these things which liberal Jews spend all their time attacking, we still liberated the Jews and welcomed them in the U.S.A. and the far right wing Christian fundamentalists are still one of Israel's very best friends.

The far left Jews care nothing for truth, law and our history.

"Why Do Jews Not Vote For Republicans?"


EVERY Jew I ever knew was a frothing-pro-abortion-dim. Forget tax cuts, freedom, socialism, Hitler. Many are past and present friends, but the abortion on demand is fixed.

It's interesting to compare abortion to the Holocaust in front of them, you always get a well rehearsed Democrat song and dance!

I am shocked at what I see here on this thread. I never thought there were so many people on free republic with such negative feelings towards Jewish people.

You might find it interesting that the RJC did a poll of Jewish voters, (but all of them were found in two states and one district (NJ, FL, PA 6)) so its not perfect.

Its main findings:

26.4% of Jews voted Republican.

Younger Jewish voters supported Republican candidates in even greater numbers.

Among those under age 55, 30.7% voted Republican, compared to 23.8% of those age 55 and over.

It also found that Jewish men are more inclined to vote Republican (30.6%) than women (22.6%).

And, among those who attend synagogue almost every day, 35.2% voted Republican, those who attend once a week, 31.8% voted Republican, and only 23.1% of "occasional attendees" voted Republican.

Reform Jews voted 23.0% Republican, Conservative 25.2% Republican, and Orthodox 42% Republican.

The more religious, the more Republican.

The attitude of the far left to Israel will drive some Jews to consider voting Republican,



The more muslims enter the political arena and exert influence in the democratic party I think we'll see more and more jews wake up and rethink their politics. We're seeing more and more far left radicals bashing Israel these days. The GOP will be smart to accommodate them rather than keep them at arm's length as has been the case historically. The left's love affair with Europe is another alarm that should be going off for Jews. As Europe becomes more Islamist the radical left here in the states will blindly trot along behind them embracing the new European Islamic culture at the expense of the Jews. As our far left embraces the rest of the world, undoing the damage of the Bush Administration, in their view, we can expect this effort to be at the expense of Israel and Jews worldwide. The west is unwilling to fight for anything anymore. The left is in step with this unwillingness to stand for anything and throwing Israel to the wolves is nothing more than expedient policy to this crowd.

Mark Levin, who impresses me greatly, Michael Savage, who I like also and listen to a lot, Ben Stein, a very intelligent man, are examples, among others as well, who are Jewish, and are fiercely conservative. They feel somewhat betrayed by the Republican party, as I do, but are on the right nonetheless. Mona Charen is conservative and a brilliant columnist. Unfortunately, they are a minority among the Jews. Liberal Jews have strayed from God and embrace liberalism as their religion, and probably have a golden statue of Bill Clinton that they worship. The sick, diseased, treasonous democrat party is an enemy of Isreal and have this touchy-feely relationship with the Islamofascists who want to kill them all. These democrat fools dont realize that they would be the first to be rounded up; homosexuals, Jews, showbiz celebrities, hollywood movie makers, and yet they cozy up to the enemy. Liberal jews are fools, plain and simple for following a party like that. Like Savage says, liberalism is a mental disease. God help us if Hillary Clinton is elected, but one thing is sure, liberal Jews will vote for her. This once great country will truly descend into the abyss when the socialist/communists that populate the democrat party take over.
