Bewildering, is it not, Jewish support for Democratic Socialists?
As reported by the Gallup Poll American Jews, Politics and Israel on August 27, 2019, “
- 44% of American Jews are liberal, much higher than the overall 25% among the total population, making Jews the most liberal of any major religious group we identify
- Jewish voters overwhelmingly (but not monolithically) voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election
- Jews in America have by far the highest average education level of any religious group we measure
- Jewish Americans are well below average in their approval of the job Trump is doing as president
- Our aggregate from January through August of this year shows a 29% Trump job approval rating among Jews, with 69% disapproval
Recently, President Trump, obviously not antisemitic, honored the memory of an American Jewish Soldier who penned one of the most beloved songs dear to most Americans.
Never before in all American history has there been a more pro-Israel, pro-Jew president than Donald Trump whose son-in-law and daughter are Jews. Jared Kushner heads up the presidents peace initiatives in the Middle East. Even though we have had a law on the books for many years to move our U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, President Trump is the first president to act on the law: our embassy is now in Jerusalem and open for business.
In bygone years, at least long after the end of Reconstruction of the South, Democratic leaders were Christians who solidly supported the rebirth of the nation of Israel.
Democratic President Harry Truman was the first to support the new nation of Israel. Republican President Dwight Eisenhower continued solid U.S. support of the reborn state of Israel, as did Democrats John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.

Over the last three years, the Democratic Party leadership has labored unrelentingly to undo the election of President Donald Trump. In recent days, the Democrat-majority House reduced their fallacious complaints down to two points. Why only two?
All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to … The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding, through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and thence to the heart of the broad masses … The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf, Chapter Six
The Democratic Party of my first president, Harry S. Truman, is not the same Democratic Party of 2019. Jimmy Carter’s presidency marked a major change in direction for the party. The Carter Foundation is heavily supported by Muslims, including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Throughout the history of Carter’s presidency and the Carter Foundation, antisemitism and antagonism toward the State of Israel has been front and center.
Following the publication of Jimmy Carter’s book Palestine: Peace not Apartheid, 14 members of an advisory board to his Carter Center resigned in protest, arguing that the book was unfairly critical of Israel.
I walked away from the party in 1980.
The Democratic Party of today undergoes a swift metamorphosis from the party of Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson to the radical leftists personified by The Squad, four first-term Representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.
In 2016, the Justice Democrats recruited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to run against Democrat veteran representative Joe Crowley.
The Justice Democrats are fielding and supporting ultra-leftist candidates and one that should concern all Republicans is Betsy Sweet who will be challenging ‘squishy’ Republican Senator Susan Collins.
American Jews, especially those in the Atlanta, Georgia area, should realize the march toward totalitarian socialism is real and embodied by the Democratic Party.
Liberal Jewish synagogues and individuals team up with LGBTQ activists, supposing them to be people of a minority group persecuted by Christians in the Republican Party.
Must I remind the reader how the rise of the German National Socialist Party (NAZI) followed an eerily similar path?
Back to why Nancy Pelosi and her team elected to cite only two simple-minded charges against President Trump, they are following Adolph Hitler’s theory on propaganda: keep it intellectually simple, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.
