One measure of a person’s sanity – as well as their rationality – is how much stock they take in their survival (as well as that of their loved ones), even if the odds are not in their favor.
So, what conclusions can be drawn about an otherwise highly intelligent (successful too, for the most part) group of people who have been persecuted more times than most folks want to think about – with nary a time in history when their persecution wasn’t the “norm” – yet their main litmus test for leadership depends upon which candidate supports abortion?
Never mind that abortion is an extraordinarily hot button issue, fraught with more minefields than can possibly be counted in any given war-torn country, and it will remain this way long after most of us are dead and buried.
And despite the fact that the actual “science is clear that human life begins at conception when a new human being is formed; and in Roe v Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decided it could not ‘resolve the difficult question of when life begins’ – and on the basis of the unresolved question, declared a new ‘right to abortion’ based on a ‘right to privacy’ “- nevertheless, within their ‘holier than thou’ sphere, the science is not nearly enough !
Talk about twisting the law – and ones ideological paragons – into prescribed (political) knots !
Yet still, place all the above logic (even the twisted part) to the side, and we are reflexively faced with leftist Jews who worship the “right” to abortion, above and beyond other compelling life and death issues. Inconceivably, many of these abortion-obsessed Jews “earn like Episcopalians, and vote like Puerto Ricans” – no offense to my Hispanic/Spanish friends !
Milton Himmelfarb, a trenchant sociographer of the American Jewish community knew his terrain. He was spot on….and his observations are as apt today, as they were when initially observed decades ago.
As always, Daniel Greenfield aka Sultan Knish cuts to the heart of the matter, performing the heavy lifting for many. In ‘Suicide As A Jewish Value’ he dissects their underbelly, leaving many leftist Jews exposed as the (ideological) fools/tools that they are.
“A month ago, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz sat down with the host of a Jewish television channel and could not name any reason for Jews to vote for Obama except for his support for abortion. Which is to say that the favorite muppet of the Democratic Party could not think of any reason to support B.O. except a mutual commitment that fewer Jews be born.”
“It is a little-known fact that Margaret Sanger, that pioneer of eugenic solutions to “racial, political, and social problems”, began by targeting Jews, opening her first center in Brownsville, Brooklyn, complete with Yiddish and Italian flyers, aiming for the two immigrant groups whose high reproduction rates were considered a social problem.”
“Abortion as a Liberal Jewish value has been a stunning success. In New York City, where Sanger first set up shop, 74 percent of all Jewish children are members of the traditionalist Orthodox religious group. Liberal Jews are already panicking over the prospect of a future Jewish population in New York City that is staunchly conservative and religious.”
“A recent survey of New York City Jews also shows a nearly even split between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. 46 percent of New York Jews are planning to vote against Obama, and a majority of New York City Jews think that Romney would be better at fixing the economy than B.O. But it is only to be expected that the group for whom abortion isn’t a Jewish value would come to outnumber the group for whom abortion is a Jewish value.”
“The problem with values is that you have to live with their consequences. When your values dictate that terrorists deserve all the protections of the civilian justice system, then you have to be ready to live with the explosions. If your values dictate minimal population growth, then you have to accept the consequences of extinction. Values that are contrary to survival carry their own natural cost. And when your values are at odds with your interests, then your values might as well be an open window, a loaded revolver or a dose of strychnine.”
“Liberal Jews like to talk about Jewish values rather than Jewish interests, because their values are incompatible with Jewish interests– even as a matter of simple survival. The usual liberal grab bag of values that are represented by the Jewish hand puppets of liberalism, like Wasserman-Schultz, aren’t just alien, they threaten the basic survival of the Jewish People.”
“When asked to justify what interests the Democratic Party and American Jews have in common, the Jewish liberal dives into a copy of the New York Times and comes up with illegal immigration, abortion, gay rights and support for peace in the Middle East.”
“That list of Liberal Jewish values not only fails to align with a single Jewish interest, but each of them threatens Jewish interests… that is if survival is to be considered a Jewish interest.”
“Peace in the Middle East means aborting Israel, dissecting it into small pieces and repeating the process until there is no country left. It’s another case of liberal Jews trying to do to Israel what they have already done to themselves. To believe that pressuring Israel into making a non-stop roll of concessions to Muslim terrorists is a Jewish value is to believe that suicide is a Jewish value.”
“Illegal immigration, a cause that virtually every major Jewish organization has signed on to, means the mass migration of Mexicans to the United States. The ADL’s own survey shows that nearly half of foreign-born Latinos rate as strongly Anti-Semitic, over three times the rate of white Americans. (Bad news for the glorious civil rights alliance; the ADL’s strongly antisemitic ratings are 12 percent for white Americans, 35 percent for African-Americans and 44 percent for foreign-born Latinos.) The only way to make sense of this is that Liberal Jewish groups believe that increasing Anti-Semitism in America is actually a Jewish value.”
“But liberals of all creeds need more Mexican illegal aliens and immigrants from all across the Third World to compensate for the good work of Sanger. Liberal Christians fear the reproduction rates of Conservative Christians as Liberal Jews fear the reproduction rates of Orthodox Jews. The only way out of the demographic race is to import “ringers” who will have the children that they won’t. The new eugenics is political eugenics. Birth control is no longer for the people that Sanger considered the “unfit”, they’re valued now for their reproductive rates which help the “fit” stay in power.”
“Growing Anti-Semitism is a small price to pay for the Liberal values of having people like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz sitting in Congress instead of selling tie-dyed t-shirts and hand-painted seashell bongs in a flea market. And like all the wages of liberalism, the price for it isn’t paid by the people on top, but by those at the bottom. Those Jews living next to the 44 percent in New York City or on farms in the West Bank within firing range of their Palestinian Muslim peace partners. The Jews whom Sanger and Schultz consider “unfit”.
An aching (Jewish) heart.
