I sometimes get criticized for making my case with anecdotal evidence as if, somehow, anecdotal evidence is not evidence.
This is not sociology. This is not academic work. All that is happening here is that me and Doodad and some of our friends our discussing the anti-Semitic anti-Zionist trend on the progressive-left.
I, as the owner of this blog, am advocating that Jewish people, and people who care about Israel, should Sanction, Divest from, and Boycott (SDB!) the progressive-left, if not the Democratic Party.
It is more than clear that the left is hostile territory to Jews who care about their fellow Jews and who care about Israel. That is unquestionably the case. Jewish people who care about their fellow Jews in Israel are made to feel like troublemakers and racists.
All I am trying to do is help break through the hard shell of progressive-left denial and indifference and to help free Jews from their slavish devotion to a political movement that is entirely indifferent to our well-being.
In some measure this is why the Democratic Party is bleeding it's Jews.
2008: 72% were Democrats and 20% were Republicans. (Pew)
2010: 60% were Democrats and 33% were Republicans. (Pew)
2011: 45% are Democrats and 38% are Republicans. (AJC)
And for that I am grateful.
