a good number of those jackasses are gone. See Gary Condit.
Rohrabacher has always struck me as a pompous jerk so his position isn't surprising.

Byrd is a former Klansman, but not a former head of the KKK.

"Rohrabacher has always struck me as a pompous jerk so his position isn't surprising."

He takes credit for being an "expert" on Afghanistan.
He rents his local office (Huntington Beach) from a Palestinian business interest.

His staff become indignant, if asked whether the Palestinian business interests that are friendly to Dana, have been investigated for funneling money to Palestinian terrorists.

"Surprisingly they are mostly Democrats."

"Surprisingly" ... as if we should have expected all racists to be Republicans. I resent that.

It's really no surprise that they're mostly rats, and furthermore, it's no surprise that those rats managed to turn expectations of such racism toward the Republicans.

They hurl accusations of racism in every direction, yet have turned the actual practice of racism into a virtual recreational sport. We need to start standing up and making statements like: "Predictably, most of them are themselves race-baiting Democrats."

It's time for conservatives to stop tossing whiffle balls in a game of hardball. Patty Murray should be given the Trent Lott treatment, the Congressional Black Caucus should be proclaimed as irrefutably racist, and these congresscritters should be put on the defensive for their racism.

I am very surprised to see Ron Paul from Texas voting NO.

I'm not.

They call him "Dr. No."

When the House of Representatives voted to award a congressional medal to civil rights icon Rosa Parks, only one member was opposed -- Rep. Ron Paul.

The Texas Republican was the only member to vote against a bill to help runaways and exploited children, and the only opponent for a bill against "date rape" drugs. When the House voted 400-1 urging Haiti to conduct free and peaceful elections, and 418-1 urging China not to use force against Taiwan, he was the 1.

His bold voting record is rooted in his strict view of the U.S. Constitution. He believes the federal government has gotten too powerful and he opposes any program that isn't authorized in the Constitution. He consistently votes against congressional medals -- even the one for former President Ronald Reagan -- because he thinks their $30,000 cost is a waste of taxpayer money...(cont)

CLONE RON PAUL NOW!

What were the resolutions for exactly?

More info on Ron Paul from the above-linked article:

"Paul opposed the Clinton administration's overseas military actions because they ignored the constitutional requirement to get Congress' approval before declaring war. He opposes foreign aid and resolutions on foreign governments because he doesn't believe the United States should boss around other countries.

He votes against most appropriations bills because they usually include programs that he says are not sanctioned by the Constitution. He says programs such as the one for missing and exploited children are best handled by the states. He opposes the minimum wage because he doesn't think Congress should meddle in private employment matters."

Does the fact that Paul routinely "opposes foreign aid and resolutions on foreign governments" really make him "anti-semitic," as the above posters alleges?

Grand Dragons are directly below the Grand Imperial Wizard. Its ludicrous to think Byrd wasn't involved in a lynching or two back in the day.

If you find it, let me know so I can freep him in support.

Not so much for his position on Israel in specific but for his America-first policy in general. He is a true patriot, and the most honorable man in Congress.

The honorable Rep./Dr. RON PAUL isn't anti-Israel.....not in the least! He voted "no" on this resolution purely on Constitutional grounds. I don't know the details of the resolution, but if it included any kind of foreign aid, or sticking our nose into the affairs of other sovereign nations--both of which are unconstitutional--then I would agree w/ him 100%. As usual, RON PAUL IS RIGHT!

Now as for the Dims who voted against this resolution, notice that many of them are in the socialist Progressive Caucus....I think it's safe to say that many of them COULD be anti-Israel.

Sorry, but this is also not true. His actual membership ran 2 years during his twenties. He remained a sympathiser after that, but the last evidence of any Klan related activity was a letter 3 years after his membership ended in which he asked the Imperial Grand Wizard if it was possible to reform the Klan in West Virginia, as it had disbanded.

DW--there was no resolution yesterday. This is an outdated e-mail. Anoldafvet and Hildy are correct--People like McKinney and Condit aren't in Congress any longer. This is from last year sometime.

That's why e-mai;l sources for info have to be checked out--they are usually not trustworthy.

You're right. I didn't know when I posted but it's dated. But still instructive that RATS dominate this list.



"Friends, if ever there was a definitive list of the anti-Israel members of Congress, we have it now. It's these 23 members who voted against the August 13th, 2002 House and Senate resolutions of support for Israel."

So if a congressman voted to stop illegal immigration would that make him anti-Mexican? If a congressman voted to cut welfare would that make him pro-rich? If a congressman voted to cut highway funding would that make him anti-detroit? You throw your accusation rather freely. How convenient.

Your comparisons are not valid, so I will not address them. I will address your claim that I throw my accusation freely, and you will find it is based on larger beliefs than this anecdotal evidence. I believe the majority of the Democrat Party is anti-semitic. They have to be, they're atheists or one, and they generally support Palestine, who has promised to push the Jews into the sea, for another.

IMHO, Armegeddon will be fought between those who follow the God of Abraham, US, UK, Israel, against those who don't...Muslims, Atheists, US Media, Third worlders, Democrat Party, United Nations, feminists, Wiccans, etc, etc.

I believe the Bible says all the world would make war against Israel for a reason...

as referenced at the start, this was an email so who knows how long it was floating out there before it got to dennisw. With reference to my previous post, this may be the vote that I remember Ron Paul (R, TX) making against Israel (but I don't have details handy at the moment).

Then why are 80% of Jews still voting for them (and many are the Israel firsters posting right here)? Don't even try to tell me all the young ones vote (R). They don't even vote.

Most of the Jewish FReepers are Orthodox. They tend to be extremely religious and conservative in every way. Jews that vote Dem tend to be Reform or members of "might as well be Reform" Conservative synangogues.

I thought that at first too, but then you have the strange fact that most of them never post on any other topic except Israel... so maybe there is another category? (sort of like the whole town of religious NY State Jews that sold their vote en masse for Hillary)?

From the NY Post...

An aging man whose infamous fraud case sparked a pardon probe of Hillary and Bill Clinton pleaded guilty yesterday to swindling the government out of millions of dollars. Chaim Berger, 75, admitted in Manhattan federal court to helping the Rockland County town of New Square win massive federal funding through improperly obtained education grants. Four other men convicted in the scheme, including Berger's son Benjamin, made headlines a year ago when President Clinton drastically reduced their sentences in his final days in office.

The town of New Square had just voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Rodham Clinton in her Senate race, and federal probers are still trying to determine if there was a votes-for-clemency deal. Thanks to the Clinton clemencies, three of his co-defendants - Benjamin Berger, David Golstein and Kalmen Stern - have already been released to their homes or a halfway house. The fourth, Jacob Elbaum, is due to be let out in May. Unlike the other four, Berger had never gone to trial because he went to Israel for several years while authorities tried to force his extradition.

See above post #43 for a mirror image of my point... I would not put it past many of the Israel Firsters here on FR to masquerade as conservatives, if a whole town of Conservative Ultra Orthodox Jews would vote for Hillary, to get Clinton pardon's.

Well, using your logic, we could hold all religious folks on FR in suspicion. Many Christian denominations have signed on with the "No war with Iraq" crew. Guess we should start wondering about them.

If you have an issue with Jewish FReepers, maybe you should take it up with JimRob. Let him know how suspicious you are of us. Sorry that you might not be around the next day to tell us how it went.

Some apparently believe that. There are even people here who seem to think that anyone who criticizes the Israeli zealots who want to start a war by expelling all the Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza are "anti-semites".

I don't go whining to JimRob or the moderators all the time, like some people I know. If the fact that I pointed out the fallacy of your original argument bothers you... tough (that because Jewish Freepers are usually orthodox, they are therefore conservative in every way). Chew a while on New Square, NY (almost all ultra orthodox Jews, voting for Hillary).

Point of information: I called them Israel Firsters, not Jewish Freepers. There is a big difference.
