More Democrat Party Anti-Semitism

As an addendum to yesterday's post on George Allen's discovery that he is Jewish, we learn, via the Captain, that Allen's campaign is now reporting on James Webb's anti-semitic tricks in his campaign to replace Allen as Senator. Several of them are quite nasty:
"In the primary, Jim Webb produced and mailed a cartoon of his Jewish opponent depicting him with a long nose and money coming out of his pockets, calling him the 'anti-Christ of outsourcing'. His Democrat opponent rightly condemned this anti-Semitic ploy.

"Now, we learn that Jim Webb's campaign operatives, on his behalf, have been pushing a story that George Allen has Jewish relatives. In some perverse way Jim Webb believes that this will cost Senator Allen votes. Jim Webb is dead wrong.

But that, it turns out sadly, is par for the course these days for stalwarts of the Democrat party.

Why do Jews still overwhelmingly vote with the Democrats then? I fail to understand this. Over 90% of Republicans SUPPORT Israel, and I'm proud to be one of them.

Why would Jews vote with a party that doesn't even like them? This isn't JFK's Democratic Party anymore and it's high time both middle and upper class blacks and Jews understand that the Dems take them for granted at best, and activly dislike them at worst.

I don't get it.

I don't know either, Duchess. I find it confounding as well - at this point it defies common sense. I suspect for a lot of Jews it is residual. They grew up that way, and that is where they are still comfortable, and perhaps they are not fully aware of all the anti-semitic pockets in the Democrat party - especially if they are not news junkies.

And for other Jews, liberalism has more or less become their religion.

I try pointing this out to my Jewish liberal friends - the ones who are Jewishly aware and strong supporters of Israel, but these things go down deep in people's guts and make up their personality and it is not going to change overnight.

But I suspect, as this climate continues to grow, more and more Jews will continue to come to their senses on this issue, particularly the more politically aware ones.
