Brief Notes: Reforming the Right?



Michael

Maybe it is time for Jewish liberals to start thinking about joining the Republican Party and reforming the American right. I have been a Democrat for a couple of decades and have only recently re-registered as independent, but it is becoming more and more obvious that the grassroots of the Democratic-Left is no friend to the Jewish state and thus no friend to the Jewish people.

That being the case what I would like to see is more Jewish participation among conservatives with a mind for helping to reform the Republican Party. There is no question, as anyone even vaguely familiar with the polling knows, that Republicans and conservatives are better friends to Israel than are Democrats and Progressives.

Why should Jewish people be the only people in the country wherein we are not supposed to politically support our own well-being? Because the progressive movement has made a home of itself for anti-Semitic anti-Zionists we need to split off.

And that, today, is my brief note.

And a Tip 'O the Kippa to Doodad for pointing out this Palestinian bit of liberality on PA television from just last week:



Palestinian kids are "created to be fertilizer for land of Palestine, to saturate land with their blood"

Palestinian TV (Fatah) - Jan. 24, 2012:

PA TV narrator: "In the refugee camp Ein Al-Hilwe [in Lebanon], a rally was held in celebration of the [47th] anniversary [of Fatah]. A political symposium was also held on the occasion of the event":

Our children are our honor and glory,
they were created to be fertilizer for the land of Palestine,
and for our pure land to be saturated with their blood.

And, yet, the left still blames the Jews.

    The Democrats are antisemites plain and simple. They have nothing t do with the democratic party in the time of Kennedy

  2. I disagree.

    The great majority of Democrats are not anti-Semites.

    The great majority of "progressives" are not anti-Semitic, either.  

    It's just that they do not mind the anti-Semitic anti-Zionists who have joined their ranks and have, thereby, betrayed their Jewish friends.

  3. Don't you think it would be better to maintain a Jewish and Zionist presence in both parties, in order to keep support for Israel on the Congressional level bi-partisan??

    As soon as an issue becomes solely identified with one party, you automatically lose half the time.  Support for Israel is one of the few issues that has remained bi-partisan at the Congressional level.  Let's keep it that way, by keeping Zionists prominent in both parties.  Anything else would be folly - reactive and not strategic.

  4. Heya fizziks,

    thanks for dropping in.

    Needless to say, I agree with you that we need to maintain bipartisan support for Israel.  Dershowitz has been beating that drum for a long time.

    What we need now, tho, is a greater measure of parity.  

    The progressive movement and the grassroots / netroots of the Democratic party is no friend to us and certainly no friend to Israel.

    They kick our ass on a daily basis, yet we phone bank for them and send them checks and march in their parades.

    Those days are ending, however.

    We'll still have a significant presence in the Democratic party, but it would be foolish to give the progressive movement much in the way of support, considering that not only do they give us no support, but actively work against the well-being of Jews in the Middle East.

    Half our number.

  5. An elucidating rhetorical statement:

    "The majority of so-and-so's are not genocidal anti-Black racists. It's just that they do not mind the genocidal anti-Black racists who have joined their ranks and have, thereby, betrayed their Jewish friends."

    Anti-Jewish racism/bigotry is so common, and so deeply engrained, in Western societies (culturally Christian-European, Christian and formerly Christian, societies), including the United States, that anti-Jewish racism/bigotry is recognized and perceived and identified, by Western people (non-Jewish and Jewish), only when it is so extreme that it's genocidal and overtly explicitly expressed.

    The current surge and explosion of genocidal anti-Jewish racism (genocidal anti-Jewish racism whose current form is belief in intendedly genocidal racist malicious lies about, and racist malice and hate towards, the nation of the Jewish people: That is, genocidal anti-Jewish racism whose current form is so-called "anti-Zionism") has been caused by the Western (non-Jewish and Stockholm-syndrome-Jewish) libelous racist anti-Jewish "journalistic" mass-media coverage of the situation that Israel is in, and by, involved with that, the Western (non-Jewish and Stockholm-syndrome-Jewish) perverse obscene libelous racist anti-Jewish "academic" disinformation campaign within Western academia, and by, as a catalytic part of that, the Arab and Muslim consciously strategic libelous intendedly genocidal racist anti-Jewish "academic" disinformation campaign within Western academia.

    Almost everyone in Western societies is anti-Jewish racist/bigoted to some degree.

    The way to dispel anti-Jewish racism/bigotry is for Jewish people to tell the truth about the situation that they are in. The way to dispel racist bigotry toward the nation of the Jewish people is to tell the truth about the situation that the nation of the Jewish people is in - the factual history, and current reality, of the situation that the nation of the Jewish people, Israel, is in.

    First, Jewish people need to learn and understand the factual history, and current reality, of the situation that Israel is in.
