Media is Mad Because Mitt Told the Truth?

Many ask, Why do Jews vote Democrat? Two reasons. 1) They residually associate a) Republicans with the anti-Semitism of its past association with the John Birch Society (which WF Buckley largely excommunicated from the party), and b) conservative Christians with centuries of anti-Semitic horrors. 2) They still see the left, i.e., Democrats, as the party that cares for minorities, in a way they once were, and protects those subject to mistreatment. As a politically conservative Jew, I think Jews should recognize: a) that Democrats today injure minorities through cynical facilitated dependency and victimhood, thereby creating a burgeoning category of voter; b) conservative Christians today are their and Israel's best friend ever 2)

How Democrats injure minorities is well explained in this video. Search K Carl Smith, with spaces and watch his Vimeo video. And pass it on if you agree.

Thanks so much for that info. Very, very valuable.

Careful who you call a Christian! Calling people who persecute Jews "Christians" always raises both of my eyebrows. Show me anywhere in Jesus teachings, where He told His believers to persecute His own people! It was, in fact, the Jews who persecuted early Christians, but then I hesitate to call those people Jews, because as Paul points out, a Jew is not one outwardly, but inwardly, in the heart.

I don't see all Catholics as Christians, but I believe many are. I don't think everyone in my own Church is necessarily so. I really disagree that anyone involved in the crimes of the Spanish Inquisition were! You can attach the title Christian to any group of crazies who violated just about every command of God to commit atrocities in God's name, but it doesn't make it true. James said those who are His should not only hear the Word of God, but do it.

I was a member of the John Birch Society. Never, ever, did I hear, or witness, an anti-Semitic statement or act at a JBS event or meeting.

Democrats are the party that cares for minorities: The KKK was created by Democrats. President Wilson, a Democrat, did everything in his power to prevent giving women the vote. The Democrats have a long history of bigotry and discrimination. Post civil war, they did everything in their power to obstruct and derail the reconstruction of the South--up to and including the murder of blacks and any white working towards reconstruction.

They coined the terms carpetbagger and scalawag to denigrate both northerners who came to help and southerners who assisted in reconstruction. When federal efforts of reconstruction faltered or failed, Democrats then blamed the North & the government for failing to help the South.

Our schools will not include this information in history texts as it is considered controversial and is contrary to the NEA's preconceptions and propaganda.

Regardless of what you saw, WF Buckley and others had no doubt, and so they pushed the Birchers from the GOP.

No question that the Democrats were the party of southern racism, but they didn't go after Jews and eventually became, on the whole for the worse, advocates for blacks and Hispanics.

I think your views are simplistic. There are racists on both sides of the aisle. Trying to make racism an issue of which party someone belongs to has only one possible motive: The increase of a voting base. The notion that the party or all individuals who belong to it are racist is so fantastically absurd on it's face, I can only conclude that people who believe it are hopeless hacks and can never be reasoned with, as their view of the world is based in fantasy.

Excellent walk thru history,Bulwark. You nailed it perfectly. The Democratic Party is the Party of discrimination, and arrogance. They bought and paid for the Black vote years ago, and unfortunately, the Black community is paying the Piper. Black America, wake up and smell the coffee.

I was actually invited to join the JBS which shocked me because I thought it was the KKK in business suits. I was very wrong. I didn't join, but after looking up their history and what they stand for, I have a lot more respect for them. I'm black, by the way, so you can understand my surprise.

Don’t Americans constantly complain because politicians lie? Barack Obama lies so much, his nose should be longer than Pinnochio. He says “the private sector is doing fine.” He says to business owners, “You didn’t build that.” He tells the middle class that “none of the tax increases are aimed at you.” And he tells rich people who pay almost all of the taxes, “You’re not paying your fair share.” It’s all lies and distortions.

Yet Mitt Romney tells the truth and he gets panned by the national media? All he said a few days ago is that Israel is a remarkable...
