Will Jewish people walk away from their support for Democratic Party?



Based on the factless ranting of a spoiled, narcissistic brat?

WHY?

She ignores it, just like she ignores the many other antisemitic comments by righties in this thread, and of course by the antisemite sitting in the oval office.

I've told him before that his comments about Jewish power brokers are antisemitic! Surprised? But if my choice is between someone who advances antisemitic tropes and IS in support of Israel, and someone who advances antisemitic tropes (like Omar) and is on the side of those who want to destroy Israel, I choose the former. ESPECIALLY when the latter is an official member of Congress, with legislative influence.

I sure hope you're not implying that I don't call out antisemitic tropes when they're by Republicans. But I refuse to pretend that there aren't an awful lot of antisemitic "enablers" on the Democrat side - and they are the ones who want to wipe the Jewish state out to sea.

As an American citizen I have loyalty to America but I can also support the well-being of all humans anywhere on the whole planet. It's not that difficult.
That's what I want to know, but that's what the Democrats are saying being pro-Israeli people is national loyalty.

ECUUUUUSE MEEEEEE. I responded.....just not the instant you required? Am I supposed to be ready to respond to any question within a few minutes. I was cleaning the kitchen, if you must know, and scooping out the litter box. It was sort of messy. I can describe it more if you'd like.

He's not an antisemite. He's better for Jewish people than Obama was, that's for sure. Obama was such a bigot with his Reverend Wright church and taking the side of blacks in every altercation. He even sent down officials to the funeral of Michael Brown, who tried to kill a cop! And "Travyon would look like my son!" And the "police behaved stupidly" (because there was a black man involved). And "like a typical white person" in describing his own grandmother.

How about just tell us who the powerbrokers are and whether they are Jewish or not in the liberal media and Hollywood? And the poster's statement will be shown to be correct or incorrect. And drop all this "anti-Semitic trope" nonsense. If a leftist claims all the conservative media powerbrokers are white, is that an "anti-white trope"?

Whooooosh!!! That's the sound of my point going right over your head. I was talking about which party aligns better with the Jewish concept of Tzedaka, helping people in need.

And your little quip means nothing to me. I will continue to support politicians who support my values. Tough cookies, bud.

And I'm saying if the concept Jewish or otherwise in origin is compel and impose upon others, then the concept is flawed and wrong.
