(Oct. 31, 2020) — Dear Readership,
[Disclaimer: I have written this article after reading a compilation of commentary from conservative Jewish friends so as to establish their feelings and positions with absolute clarity in this election cycle. I have assembled this information over time so that this highly-intelligent minority can be heard and understood with extreme transparency.]
Scholars have long agreed that the rise of Nazism began on January 30, 1933, when President Paul von Hindenburg named Adolf Hitler, leader or führer of the National Socialist German Workers Party (or Nazi Party), as chancellor of Germany. The Enabling Act of March 23, 1933 passed the Reichstag and gave dictatorial powers to Hitler. With those powers began the emergence of the Master Race theory, when the “feebleminded” Gypsies and Jews became the target of Hitler’s racist harassment, oppression and eventual persecution. Scholars and psychoanalysts further theorized that though leading Jews could see the darkness at the end of the tunnel for their peoples, they ignored the growing threat because they thought of themselves as Germans, not separately as a Jewish group. Those in the psychoanalytic profession call this cognitive dissonance; the Oxford Dictionary defines this as “the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavioral decisions and attitude change.” Basically, it is the ignoring of stark reality in lieu of people adhering to what they want life to be like.
Reasonable readers no doubt can agree that the Obama-Biden branch of government shipped a total of $1.7 billion in cash to Iran. This author concludes that was an indirect fiscal attack on Israel since Iranian leaders have so often made threats to the nation of Israel.
A recent Gallup poll revealed the following statistics on Jewish-American voting trends:
Trump took office in January 2017, and Gallup’s aggregated surveys conducted from February through December of that year show that 68% of Jews identified as Democratic or as independents who leaned toward the Democratic Party, while 28% identified as or leaned Republican.
In 2018, those numbers were 59% Democratic and 36% Republican. So far this year, using an aggregated sample of Gallup polls conducted from January through August, 65% of Jews identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party, with 30% identifying with or leaning toward the Republican Party.
In terms of ideology, 44% of American Jews are liberal, much higher than the overall 25% among the total population, making Jews the most liberal of any major religious group we identify. Another 36% of Jews are moderates, with 20% describing themselves as conservative — compared with 37% of the total population.” (Gallup POLLING MATTERS, August 27, 2019).
Putting together the above two paragraphs, something doesn’t quite make sense here. As Lost in Space’s Rodney the Robot would say, “Does not compute!” Why would so many of America’s highly intelligent Jews vote overwhelmingly for a party that overtly makes attempts to destroy them?
Another example is the Democrat Party’s darling and collaborator, Louis Farrakhan. The following is an excerpt from a speech at Washington, D.C.’s Watergate Hotel in November 2017, where Farrakhan told his audience that the Jews who “owned a lot of plantations” were responsible for undermining black emancipation after the Civil War. He also endorsed the second volume of the anti-Semitic book, “The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews,” which blames Jews for promoting a myth of black racial inferiority and makes conspiratorial accusations about Jewish involvement in slave trade and the cotton, textiles, and banking industries. Farrakhan believes this book should be taught in schools.
So, in putting this together, the Democrat Party and the far left supports individual Jew-haters and national entities who are out to destroy them.
What I cannot fathom is the unintended consequences of doing that. Why this approach of supporting those who are bloody adversaries? What happens if their devotion to the Democrat Party backfires on them as it did when they relied on Germany being on their side? Haven’t they learned the hard way about this blind loyalty?
Are Jews self-loathing? Do they abhor being Jewish? Are they Jew-haters themselves? Are they that ashamed of their great Jewish heritage that they lean toward self-destruction? Are the worst Jew-haters their fellow Jews?
Or, is this another case of cognitive dissonance? In the military we called this “ostrich syndrome,” but sticking one’s head in the sand and ignoring reality has and can have calamitous outcomes as evidenced in the Holocaust.
It is time for the Jewish community to wake up and smell the coffee. What they are doing is not working but is like being cured of cancer and hating your oncologist!
