The Democrat Party is an anti-Semitic political party. Candidates such as Keith Ellison, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Leslie Cockburn were running (at least partially) on hatred of Israel. The Democrat Party’s gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum, has supported organizations with ties to the BDS movement. Prominent Democrat leaders openly support vile Israel-haters and anti-Semites such as Louis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, and Linda Sarsour.
Apparently, U.S. Jewish voters would rather not resist the anti-Semitism that is rampant in the Democrat Party. Instead, U.S Jewish voters (79% of U.S Jewish voters voted for Democrats on Tuesday) proudly resist President Trump, the most pro-Jewish and pro-Israel president ever. The current state of the U.S Jewish community is tragic.
“Jewish Americans are now the face of Trump resistance,” by Michael Wilner, Jerusalem Post, November 10, 2018:
WASHINGTON – They plan to conduct hearings on his foreign policy, lead oversight into his administration, subpoena his closest aides, investigate his family and run against him in 2020.
In large numbers, American Jews are becoming the face of a Democratic resistance against US President Donald Trump by assuming critical chairmanships in the House of Representatives and preparing campaigns for the White House.
They are voting against him in record numbers. In midterm elections on Tuesday, 79% of Jewish voters chose Democrats, according to exit polls conducted by Pew Research Center and CNN. Only 17% supported Republicans– down nearly 10% in two short, if eventful years.
And they are getting elected. Across the country, 30 Jewish Americans were elected or reelected to the House– only two of which are Republicans– and four to the Senate, just shy of marking record-high Jewish representation on Capitol Hill. Democrats’ sole pickup seat from Republicans in the Senate, in Nevada, was Jacky Rosen, formerly president of her synagogue congregation.
What, if anything, does their Judaism have to do with their politics? Statistics would suggest quite a bit. A majority of American Jews have voted for progressive candidates and causes in elections since at least 1984, when record-keeping began on Jewish voter patterns, and when roughly 7 in 10 community members began reliably voting Democratic– a direct response to a Republican alignment with evangelical Christians that appeared at the time hostile to Jews and their pluralistic values.
Those same political elements that drove Jewish Americans to the left in the 1980s are doing so, with renewed vigor, over three decades later. The Jewish constituency amounts to a loose, otherwise diverse coalition squarely opposed to policies hostile to minority protections, social welfare and equal justice.To American Jews, Trump appears a threat to those values today. A poll released last month by the Jewish Electorate Institute found that 70% of the community disapproves of Trump’s handling of a spike in antisemitism nationwide– and even fewer approve of his foreign policy or his approach to immigration, gun safety, the environment, healthcare or his Supreme Court nominations. Three out of four rule out voting for him under any circumstances….
