From Powerline, a prediction by Robert P. George:


You will be able to watch something as if in slow motion over the course of the next few years: the collapse of support for Israel by Democratic Party politicians who harbor ambition for national office. It will follow the pattern we saw of collapse of support for the pro-life cause by leading Democrats in the period of 1973-80 (and particularly 1973-76). One by one, major pro-life Democrats, perceiving the writing on the wall, flipped to supporting abortion and, eventually, even its public funding: Teddy Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Richard Gephart, Al Gore, Jesse Jackson, Joe Biden, and many others. (Something similar happened on marriage, by the way, in the period of 2000-2012, especially 2004-09, culminating in Barack Obama’s “evolution” and Hillary Clinton’s change of heart.)

Similarly, today’s leading Democrats will move from support for Israel, to merely nominal support for Israel, to neutrality, to quiet, somewhat ambiguous opposition, to something effectively indistinguishable from “Zionism is racism.” The left calls the tune, and just as the left settled in on abortion in the early 1970s and marriage redefinition in the 90s, it has now settled in on opposition to Israel–not merely the policies of its government, but its very existence as a Jewish state and homeland of the Jewish people. Do you doubt me? You can do a test of your own. Go to the center of campus at your local university and hoist a placard bearing a large blue star of David and the words “Long Live Israel!” (Notice: Please make sure your health and life insurance coverage are in good order before conducting this experiment.)


Go here to read the comments.  Jews that vote for the Democrats are as much idiots as Catholics who vote for the Democrats.

Saint of the Day Quote: Martyrs of Compiègne

  Courage, my sister, the yoke of a Carmelite is necessarily very light or very heavy in proportion as one’s courage bears


  1. Antisemitism: Where ever you see it, you can be sure the demonic is behind it.
    Same with child murder.
    And pornography.

  2. Jews that vote for the Democrats are as much idiots as Catholics who vote for the Democrats.

    Not so, not so! Because Democrats have a long and honorable history of support for Israel (until they don’t), and they were for Israel before they were against it, and anyways some Republican somewhere back in the day was anti-Israel and probably an anti-semite to boot, proving Republican support for Israel is crass political opportunism unworthy of Jewish support


  3. Seriously religious Jews are already open to voting Republican (or regard politicians as fungible).

    As for the remainder, a combination of low fertility and intermarriage will be reducing their number quite radically. That aside, it’s a reasonable inference that the security of Israel is a secondary concern with most Jews, keeping their social and cultural antagonists down a primary concern. o the extent pollsters can discern, Jewish voters gave handsome majorities to Barack Obama, a degree of support Jimmy Carter could not obtain. This, in spite of his serial displays of petty spite at the Jewish state and in spite of having made remarks at a tribute to Rashid Khalidi that were inflammatory enough that the Democratic operatives who edit the Los Angeles Times acted to suppress them by sequestering the one surviving videotape of those remarks.

    Among people active in politics, you’ve started to see a phenomenon you might call ‘Jews-you-can-use’. Critics of J-Street maintained it was an Obama fan club chock-a-block with soi-disant Jews who had little to do with the Jewish experience (in great measure because one of their parents was gentile).

    So, no. I doubt Jewish voters will put up much resistance to the shivving of Israel.

  4. Some Jews were paying attention. Obama received 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008 and 69% in 2012, a rather steep decline for such a loyal Democrat voting block. Clinton got 71% in 2016. Her hubbie back in the 90’s got 80% and 78%.

  5. Robert Redeker suggested that, after the Cold War, the Left has replaced “sovietophilia” with “islamophilia,” and that “Palestinians and the contemporary Muslim masses replace the proletariat in the intellectuals’ imagination” as the pure, ideal alternative to Western capitalism. (Le Monde, 11/21/01).
    Similarly, Pierre-Andre Taguieff has noted a movement consisting of “Christian humanitarians,” “third-worldists,” and anti-globalization activists.” This movement “draws nourishment from a myth and feeds it in return.” The myth “is constructed on the demonized figure of “Jews-Israelis-Zionists” supported by the “Americans” and in opposition to that, no less mythical, of the Palestinian Arab ‘innocent victims.’“ On one side, Taguieff continues, stands the “cosmopolitan Satan,” the unholy trinity of “’United States/Israel/The West.” On the other side stands the “dominated and the oppressed.” Thus the new judeophobia recycles old stereotypes such as the rich Jew and the dominating Jew under the “varnish of progressivism.” The Jew is once more the stand-in for capitalism, imperialism, cosmopolitanism, indeed the whole economic order.
