ET TU BRUTUS? ET TU?

As the sinking ship known as Democrats goes down, how long will it be before talk of how they were stabbed in the back by those disloyal, ungrateful, hyper-white Joos is shouted from the mountain tops?

Jewish voters are furious at Dems’ defense of Ilhan Omar

Jewish voters furious at Democrats’ defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar say they’re done with the party that has held their support for generations. “We felt we had a home there,” said Mark Schwartz, the Democratic deputy mayor of solidly blue Teaneck, NJ. “And now we feel like we have to check our passports.”

Jordan Manor of Manhattan, who calls himself a “gay Jewish Israeli-American,” laments, “The party I thought cared about me seems to disregard me when it comes to my Jewish identity.”

Mark Dunec, a consultant in Livingston, NJ who ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2014, says, “I’m physically afraid for myself and for my family,” adding, “I see my own party contributing to the rise of anti-Semitism in the United States.”

Omar, a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota, sparked the firestorm in February for using anti-Jewish tropes: saying that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins” and accusing Jewish-American legislators of “dual loyalty.” Many, including some fellow Democrats, deemed her comments anti-Semitic—but the party’s lefty activists pushed back. “No one seeks this level of reprimand when members make statements about Latin + other communities,” complained Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a March 5 tweet. 

Omar issued only a partial apology. In response, the House passed a resolution condemning all “hateful expressions of intolerance” with kitchen-sink language that named nearly a dozen different groups. “I feel confident that [Omar’s] words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

Many Jewish Dems in the city aren’t buying it. “The fake defense she doesn’t know what she’s saying? I don’t believe it,” said Sara, a Queens teacher who asked not to be fully identified. “This is a grown woman and a member of Congress. Trying to excuse this as naivete is inexcusable.” For her and others, anger is sparking immediate action.

“The watered-down resolution triggered my decision to walk away from the Democratic Party,” said Allison Gangi of Manhattan. “I never dreamed anti-Semitism would have become mainstream on the left, but it has.”

Sara said she is “not comfortable anymore being a Democrat” and will register as an independent.

Among his Teaneck neighbors, Schwartz said, “Our only question now is, do we start voting Republican, or do we become Republicans?”

Others say they feel like the wandering Jew of legend. “I’m homeless. I don’t think I can vote for Trump, even though he’s great for Israel,” said Jason, a start-up owner from Long Island who asked that his surname not be used. “But as a Jew, I can’t see a way to support the Democratic Party. It’s supporting your own destruction.”

Last week, President Trump issued two tweets boosting “Jexodus,” a new advocacy group—advised by a prominent GOP strategist—that encourages moderate and conservative Jews to find a new political home. More than 4,000 people have signed on, organizers said.

“Since launching this, the anti-Semitism we are seeing is so blatant and obvious it’s terrifying,” said Elizabeth Pipko, the group’s spokeswoman and a volunteer on Trump’s 2016 campaign.
The organization’s Instagram and Facebook pages are regularly targeted with hateful messages, she said. “I leave them up, because people have got to see it,” Pipko said.

Could that be coffee that they smell?

The Left Would Be Wise To Worry About Its Anti-Semitic Wing

By John Podhoretz

Jewish conservatives get asked this question more than any other: “Why are Jews liberals?” The question eventually got so tiresome that my father, himself a prominent Jewish conservative, wrote an ­entire book about tracing the history back to Biblical times. You can still buy it on Amazon. So I’m not going to answer it here.

What we know is this basic fact: In national elections, Jews vote for Democratic candidates by a margin of 3 to 1. That number has been fairly consistent through four elections now. It suggests Democrats should have no concerns about keeping Jews in their coalition for another generation.

And yet they do have such concerns. And they should.

This week, prominent Democrats announced a new group called Democratic Majority for Israel, led by the pollster Mark Mellman. He told The New York Times: “Most Democrats are strongly pro-Israel, and we want to keep it that way. There are a few discordant voices, but we want to make sure that what’s a very small problem doesn’t metastasize into a bigger problem.”

The “very small problem” Mellman has in mind is a trio of newly elected Democrats: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar. They seem to have very few foreign policy views aside from a caricature of Israel as an occupying colonial force that sits up at night thinking of new ways to torment Palestinians.

Such ideas haven’t arisen from nowhere. They are the full flowering of decades of leftist propaganda and fashionable campus blatherskite. From such repellent acorns mighty trees grow, as we have seen in Europe. Britain’s Labour party did little to head off the virulent Israel hatred in its ranks, and it is now headed by an out-and-out anti-Semite.

In Britain, once-overwhelming Jewish support for Labour has cratered. A poll before the 2017 election found that only 13 percent of Jews supported Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour because of its horrid record on ­anti-Semitism.

That is why Mellman and his fellow Democrats are smart to be doing this now, before the conflict actually begins to bite. The problem is “very small” at this moment, but the party’s trend line to the left suggests it will grow in force absent some major intervention or ideological change of heart.

Nor are the views of the new, leftist members of Congress completely alien to the kinds of Democrats who take official roles in the party. At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, delegates removed language supporting Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

When the Obama White House, fearful of losing campaign dollars, intervened to have the language restored, there was a vocal fight on the convention floor. It sounded very much like those who didn’t want the pro-Jerusalem language restored won a voice vote — and when the chair announced otherwise, the hall erupted in boos.

Bernie Sanders came very close to espousing anti-Zionist opinions openly in 2016, and he won 22 states. His path was softened by the hostile posture of President Barack Obama’s administration. Obama claimed to be a friend of Israel, but there was no country or government he criticized more over his eight years — and he concluded his term allowing a UN resolution hostile to the Jewish state to pass without an American veto.

The activist base’s growing antipathy to Israel is less worrisome to friends of the Jewish state than it would have been at any other time in the country’s history, because Israel finds itself in a surprisingly strong position internationally and at home. It has held the line against Palestinian terrorism, and it is working in concord with Arab and Muslim nations in a manner that would have seemed science-fictional at the turn of the century.

What should be concerning is the subject that goes unaddressed in Mellman’s fight: the potential mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party as represented by the renewed public importance of Louis Farrakhan and the refusal of vanguard figures on the left, like the leaders of the Women’s March, to repudiate his noxious filth.

Here, too, Democrats need not worry today about this electorally or when it comes to votes and donations. Instinctively liberal, Jews are bound to be more alarmed by some of the white-nationalist encroachments into President Trump’s GOP. But the Corbyn example looms large and is arguably far more dangerous to the American Jewish future than anti-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party is to Israel’s future.

I think Podhoretz has the cart before the horse.

The Jews are the ones to be worrying.

Most of the left-leaning Jews I know would vote for Hitler himself if it meant protecting legal abortions.

As more Jews abandon Judaism for the theology of progressiveness and distance themselves from Israel and as more Muslims enter this country, “Jewish issues” will be less relevant to Democrats.

Jewish Democrats are rearranging the deck chairs as the Titanic sinks.

It’s a question of how long they can be the Democrats’ punching bag before they either leave their party or religion.

Twitter Können Meine Meatal Protuberation Saugen

I was suspended a third time from Twitter.

No big surprise.

Why?

Because I’m a conservative with a sharp tongue and I’m a former soldier.

But I don’t break their rules.

Twitter employees are preying upon conservative tweeters right and left.

They pretend to be regular tweeters, but when you cross them, they have the power to disconnect you from Twitter instantly.

The last exchange was with a supposedly Jewish woman who called me an antisemite then suspended me.

I was ripping her a new six and suddenly found myself reading that my account had been suspended for violating their rules, which was a lie.

I was having a friendly back-and-forth over veteran issues with several tweeters when this liberal butted in, took control of our exchange, and suspended me.

We weren’t even chatting about Jews.

The reason she claimed I was an antisemite was due to my question, “Liberal Jews baffle me. Do they suffer from Stockholm Syndrome?”

She had just, for some reason, stated that she was a liberal Jew.

Calling me an antisemite is tantamount to calling a Muslim an Islamophobe.

The truth of the matter is that she hates the military of which I was a member.

In reality, Twitter is chock full of antisemites and they don’t do anything but encourage them and radical Muslims.

They even stopped translating Hebrew to English, but they’ll translate Arabic all day long.

We all know this is how liberals do business.

The radical Left is trying to silence conservative voices and destroy any group who opposes them.

They billow out their opinions, but stifle any retorts, not unlike the Nazis, and like the Nazis they will lose this war.

Someday Twitter employees will be using the Catholic church to smuggle them to safety in Argentina.

Why do people call them “elites”? There’s nothing elite about them.

They are simply elitists.

I refer them to the title of this post.

 


Update:

I opened a new profile at Twitter and posted a hotlink to this article.

Guess they didn’t like the title because they immediately suspended me for 12 hours.

I was trying to piss the assholes off this time and it worked.

Fuck Twitter.

They Only Go Low

Left wing subversives can only go low.
They put the sub in subversive.
For eight years these self-hating Jews in name only heaped praise and kissed the ass of the most anti-Israel/anti-Semitic president evuh.
Now they are the Maharal, creating golems to save the Jewish people.

The NY Post article: The obscene effort to shame ‘Trump’s Jews’

LoB’s Half Ass Book Review

It’s a half ass review because the author is an ass and I stopped reading halfway through.

my-promised-landAri Shavit, a reporter for Haaretz newspaper, wrote his personal and personalized history of Israel, as My Promised Land.

It’s a left-leaning mea culpa that alternately excoriates and praises those responsible for Israel’s creation and survival.

I forgave Shavit for referring to his great-grandfather, who emigrated to Ottoman Palestine in 1897, as a colonialist.

Having set the tone of the book with this take on events, it only got worse

I reached my breaking point on page 221 when he stated,

“Enlightened Israelis and American Jews are ashamed of Israel.”

What the fuck?

Here is a representative of the left-wing telling me if I’m not ashamed of Israel, I’m unenlightened.

That’s rich.

Liberal Jews have their heads so far up their own asses they have to look out of their navels, but I’m not enlightened.

I’ll  have you know, Mr. Shavit, I’m enlightened and proud of Israel, very proud, and you have earned an official TMQ2 invitation to…

SHUT THE FUCK UP

Dateline 1944

The disparity between the large number of German vs. British civilian deaths clearly demonstrates the moral superiority of Nazi Germany over England in terms of ideology, behavior and intentions.

Because of this, President Roosevelt has canceled American plans for the invasion of Normandy along with any future supplies provided to England under the Lend Lease Act.

The people of Germany should not be collectively punished for the actions of a few Nazi extremists.

The president has stated, “England is in good shape. I’m not worried about their survival.”

1.How ridiculous does this sound?
2.What would the outcome have been?
Substitute Hamas, Palestinians, and Jews for Nazis, Germans and British.

If your answers aren’t the same stick your head farther up your ass and breathe deeply.

Israel Does Not Exist to Make Liberal Jews Feel Good

John Podhoretz

In one of the most important pieces written during the course of this conflict, Shmuel Rosner has taken to the website of the New York Times, where he is a contributing opinion writer, with a profoundly thoughtful riposte to the disapora Jews who have expressed their disaffection with Israel as a result of the goings-on—from Jon Stewart to Ezra Klein, from Peter Beinart to Roger Cohen.

Rosner says these men may be right that Israel is in danger of losing its bedrock support among American Jews in particular. He says that would put Israel in a difficult position and represent a near-tragic development. But his central point is this: Israel is not actually their country. They do not live in Israel, they do not vote in Israel, their children are not in the Israeli army. Israel is a nation of 8 million people, and it must act in accordance with the views of its electorate and the existential needs of its people as Israelis define them. These liberal Jews, Rosner writes,
seem to believe that the implied threat that Israel might lose Jewish supporters abroad will somehow convince the government to alter its policies. This is a self-aggrandizing fantasy and reveals a poor grasp of the way Israel operates. To put it bluntly: These Jews are very important, but not nearly important enough to make Israelis pursue policies that put Israeli lives at risk.

Let me be clear: I believe Israel’s relations with Jews around the world are crucially important. Indeed, I’ve devoted a great deal of my career to thinking and writing about this topic. I often find myself preaching to Israelis about the need to be more considerate of more liberal Jewish views on issues ranging from religious conversion to women’s prayer at Jerusalem’s Western Wall. But I would never expect Israelis to gamble on our security and our lives for the sake of accommodating the political sensitivities of people who live far away.

American Jews who condition their support of Israel by standing in superior judgment of the extremely difficult choices it has been forced to make, for decades now, are guilty of converting a country of flesh-and-blood people into a one-dimensional player performing in an abstract moral pageant of their own staging and design.

These “fair weather friends,” as Rosner dubs them, hold Israel to a standard to which they do not hold other countries—and then claim they do so out of commonality and brotherhood. Light unto the nations and all that. But of course the act of separating yourself from your brethren by being their harshest critics is almost the polar opposite of true familial behavior, as Rosner notes:

If all Jews are a family, it would be natural for Israelis to expect the unconditional love of their non-Israeli Jewish kin. If Jews aren’t a family, and their support can be withdrawn, then Israelis have no reason to pay special attention to the complaints of non-Israeli Jews.

Or, to be cutesy about it, your grandmother might tell you to be a mensch while she’s stuffing you with brisket, but she does so while she stuffs you with brisket, not while she wags her finger at you and sends you to bed without your supper.

Moreover, she would be a fool if she told you that menschlichkeit required you to allow yourself to exist in a state of constant peril lest you violate some abstract moral stricture. And your grandmother is not a fool.

Which is why the more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger tone all too often taken by these fair-weather critics is so utterly and infamously disingenuous. They are using what they have in common with Israel as a weapon against it, all the while claiming they are acting on its loving behalf.
