How this anti-Semitism came
to be: The virulent hatred

Orthodox Jews around the country — and specifically in the tri-state area — were still reeling from the shooting at a kosher deli earlier this month when we gathered with our families to celebrate the holiday of Chanukah. But that air of tranquility was shattered by a string of nearly a dozen anti-Semitic attacks over the holiday, the most severe of which was a mass stabbing at a rabbi’s home upstate as he lit his menorah. The stabbing attack succeeded in bringing to the fore what we visibly Orthodox Jews have known for quite some time: There’s a growing epidemic of anti-Semitism in this country, specifically targeting Orthodox Jews,

All of this really started in 2009 through 2016...the Obama administration. Obama was friends with muslims and treated the Prime Minister of Israel (Benjamin Netanyahu) like dirt. Obama owns this problem.

Maybe because I grew up in the South and had little contact with any Jewish individuals or groups, I will never understand the hatred. Why would anyone want violence against people who are simply living their lives and their faith?

The Democrat Party's relentless efforts to foment tribal warfare are paying off in ways they might not like, with Mexicans-v-Blacks, Blacks-v-Jews, Female Impersonators-v-lesbians, etc. The paradox of Jewish liberalism may never be fully understood.

Obama caused a huge resurgence just like Hitler did but hatred of Jews has been going on since the Old Testament days. People who hate need targets that are different than they are. There is no reason for it other than that.

In days past there were some who hated Jews because they believed they were the people who caused Jesus, a Jew himself, to be placed on the cross. I don't believe that in the society we have today this mentality is very prevalent. So, I am with #2 there just doesn't seem to be a logical reason to attack these people other than they are a vulnerable group, much like the Amish.

It might have something to do with Orthodox Jews being very conservative politically. Last year, I attended CPAC, and was surprised at the number of yarmulkes I saw since Jews are one of the most loyal Democrat constituencies. After I saw prayer shawls and other obvious Hasidic clothing, I realized that many of the Jews there were orthodox. Being Jewish makes them unpopular in some circles, and being conservative makes them doubly unpopular.

As other posters have implied, it used to be a religious conflict between Christians and Jews (we weren't bothered with Muslims much back then.) Now it has become fashionable among liberals, some blacks (who, of all people, should know better!), and ignorant college kids. Democrats in Congress have fostered an atmosphere of hatred too. There are many statements by elected representatives who use their office to express their hatred and pander to groups that share their hatred.

Well this discrimination against Orthodox Jews was bound to occur in or near African-American communities with African-American perpetrators, since African-American politicians and community organizers, almost all politically allied to the leftist and liberal Democrats, have been indoctrinating African-American ghetto dwellers by spouting propaganda that Jews, not resident to African-American communities, only come into those communities to engage in “bloodsucking” business “everything is cheap here” related activities, that amount to those Jews taking advantage of and ripping off those communities big time to Jewish financial advantage. Unfortunately a lot of those Jews, in accordance with their religious traditions make themselves very visible to random attack by especially feral African-American youth on the streets just by the way they dress. All you have to do is look at the Rev. Al Sharpton’s comments over the years to see where African-American resentment towards Jews has come from, and Sharpton is only one of many who have been engaged in putting out anti-Semitic propaganda. Those attacks have nothing to do with President Trump who has Jewish descendants and has been the best friend that Israel and Jews have had in the White House in decades.

At its root, the hatred of Jews is for the same reason the world hates Christians--because both worship the One and only true God. Satan is behind this, and Christians will be targeted in increasing numbers next.

#10 is correct. Way too many blacks hate Jews. Remember Calypso Louie calling Jews 'bloodsuckers' and the 'Reverend' Jesse talking about 'Hymie Town'. I don't think the Orthodox Jews are being targeted because they are Orthodox...they are simply more visible as Jews. The low IQ ghetto thugs can more easily identify them by their dress. One other poster from the South mentioned that he didn't know many Jews when he was growing up. My little Georgia town was different. We had a thriving Jewish community with a Temple and dozens of Jewish business owners. I don't remember any slurs or people denigrating Jews in any way. I suppose there were still a few who thought the Jews killed Jesus but I never heard anyone say it. Everybody got along here....blacks, whites, Jews....we all seemed to get along. Maybe I was just lucky to grow up here.

The interesting thing about this reported anti-Semitism is that it is occurring in liberal states. It seems that liberalism breeds hatred.

Voter suppression, Iowa style 5 replies

Here’s a safe prediction for 2020. The Iowa Democratic caucuses will dominate the news at the end of January and beginning of February. My conservative cousin formerly from New York sees the caucuses as a “glaring example of voter suppression totally ignored by the mainstream media because it provides a boost to left wing Democrats.”He writes: The winner of the Iowa caucus has become the Democratic nominee in every 21st century election. Yet, turnout is sparse; only 15.7% of registered Democrats showed up for the 2016 caucus and not many more are expected this year. It is easy to understand why. To participate, voters must drive to a caucus site at night
The Mythology of Biden as a Moderate 3 replies
Posted by MissMolly 1/2/2020 4:40:48 AM Post Reply
The other day Joe Biden claimed that he would consider a Republican running mate. Right. The chances of that happening are nil, given the hardcore leftist composition of the Democratic Party. But Biden likes to feed the mythology that he is still a moderate. The Trump campaign can’t let him get away with that lie. They should paint him early and often as a liberal Democrat who long ago lost touch with the Rust Belt. This is, after all, a pol who giddily whispered in Barack Obama’s ear that a massive government takeover of health care “was a big f—ing deal,” and pushed a reluctant Obama to embrace gay marriage.

The circuit court judge overseeing Hunter Biden's paternity case, Don McSpadden, recused himself without reason on Tuesday, just days after a private investigation firm sought to intercede in the case. D&A Investigations, based in Florida, filed a "Notice of Fraud and Counterfeiting and Production of Evidence." with the court on Dec. 23, claiming Hunter Biden "established bank and financial accounts with Morgan Stanley et al" for Burisma Holdings -- where he served as a former board member -- to satisfy a "money laundering scheme." McSpadden had the request stricken from the record, on grounds that it violated state procedural rules, which required the intervening party to raise a claim that shared

Crime in Progress is, inadvertently, the cruelest book ever written about the American media. Its authors, Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, are the two former Wall Street Journal reporters who founded the DC-based consultancy Fusion GPS. In 2016, the Hillary Clinton campaign paid them to use their former media colleagues to push a conspiracy theory smearing her Republican opponent, Donald Trump. The crime is still in progress. To help top-notch journalists market the fantasy that one of the world’s most familiar faces was a secret Russian spy, Fusion GPS co-ordinated with the FBI to forge a series of ‘intelligence reports’.

The White House National Security Council staff is being downsized sharply in a bid to improve efficiency within the policy coordinating body by consolidating positions and cutting staff. A second, unspoken thrust of the overhaul is a hoped-for end to what many critics see as a string of politically damaging, unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information. Leaks of President Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders and other damaging disclosures likely originated with anti-Trump officials in the White House who stayed over from the Obama administration, according to several current and former White House officials. White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien is leading the NSC reform effort.
What Does ‘Auld Lang Syne’ Mean? 10 replies

Every year, around the world, people bring in the New Year with a rendition of “Auld Lang Syne.” This Scottish song has long been attributed to Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns (1759–1796). And yet, “Burns wasn’t the sole author,” according to Robert Crawford, Burns’s esteemed biographer (and my former professor at the University of St Andrews). “He was a co-author.” Literally, “auld lang syne” means literally “old long since,” or essentially “for old time’s sake.” Burns penned the work in 1788, but it was not printed until after his death in 1796. He had claimed that he took inspiration “from an old man’s singing,”

The Daily Wire has a report: According to pollster Frank Luntz, New York is likely to lose a seat in Congress after the 2020 census and Democrats in the state legislature will have to redraw the state’s Congressional districts as a result.
