It is really true. The dude said that. Cantor the only Jewish Republican simply doing some remarkable revisionist history to appease AIPAC. The Jewish lobby. They pretty much own Cantor.

"The colonists, including Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, saw themselves as a New Israel crossing to the Promised Land."

Eric Cantor || Majority Leader || Newsroom || Leader Cantor's Remarks to AIPAC

You just can't make this up. This is the leader of the Republican party in Congress. This is your frigging leader. Are you kidding me. OMG.

Not surprising considering what has become of the republican party, the "conservatives".

Cantor is self-serving scum and I'm embarrassed to share a religion with him. He shouldn't be listened to or believed. It's no secret Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thinks like U.S. Republicans and wants them to beat Obama. That's why he publicly embarrassed Obama two months ago.

I guess if he is referring to European immigrants displacing the indigenous population, he's hit the nail right on the head.

I have absolutely nothing against Jewish people. Technically I am Jewish myself...maternal line, although certainly non practicing. The point of making the post on Cantor was not to just question his loyalties and motivation but to show the hypocrisy. So this in before the anit-semite or self hater talk begins.

Mr big spending cuts...not really, where Israel is concerned. Old people, hungry people...too bad, but foreign aid to a wealthy country...we need that.

Last fall, when pressure was building in Washington to cut off foreign aid spending, Congressman Cantor proposed making an exception for Israel that would help guarantee it $30 billion over the next decade by hiding that funding in the U.S. "defense" budget. That proposal didnít fly, but neither has any funding of Israeli weapons been cut.
