“I believe there is something out there watching us. Unfortunately, it’s the government.” (Woody Allen)

Staked out upon the brutal wheel of history, some Jews—those canny, clever, and successful Jews—but otherwise Biblically damned—can be seen as hustling, rustling survivors, who have bet everything on the game board, on Black To Win, and then upon black numbers in rows and corners and everywhere. And they have won big; and repeatedly.

A system.

Like roulette, or something.

Or something….

Maybe a mystic system, like in some ancient, dim, incense-veiled, Babylonian game of chance under a lamp.

Well. Of the Jews, gentiles say they can be smart and bold—sometimes—in subtle ways that may twist and turn all our realities.

But for we Jews ourselves, it is about something altogether different and primal. It’s about Survival.

Because survival is a matter of death.

That is all to say, the secret of their survival, their success—their ability to coordinate themselves and networks of apparent protective influence—is obvious.

First: they have always bet upon no less than the grandiose power and glory of the State, to preserve and protect them.

They work with It—the State.

They work It.

Second: by ancient, scary traditions and by Merlin-like, mystical bruits on gnarled rams’ horns— and by soul-shivering prayers from frightening, sacred texts lamented to a One and Vengeful God, they have bet upon an enchaining, mystical religion, to both “keep it holy,” and to sanctify and unify them against all others, through Time.

Period. No argument. No questions.

Why Are Jews Liberals

Because—in their diaspora—their wanderings and bondages, and persecution over millennia, these Jews realized their religion alone could not shield them from institutionalized violence and murder of Biblical dimension.

Because, they were traditionally, officially, by hook or by crook, universally used—loathed, and blamed, whenever a king or leader or enforcer needed a distraction, an excuse for whatever, or a helpless, hopeless scapegoat. 

And, so—to save themselves—at any cost—they learned, and complied with, the vast, overwhelming, endless Power of the State; which could protect them from ANYthing—anything, at all.

Except from the Power of the State Itself…better to be on their good side—no matter what that might be.

Therefore, in an inexorable, modern, zip-line of apostasy: our so-called “today Jews” seem to have unconsciously replaced a once-sacred, over 3000 year old religion—with an obscene, servile, world-bloated adoration of The State—trite, in all its puerile largesse, riches, empire, steel panoply, and soul-killing enslavement.

The great Norman Podhoretz, in his masterful book, “Why Are Jews Liberals,” from whence this article is drawn, seems to conclude, therefore, that the Jews have only managed to exist through their adoption of “universalist” ideas—what I would call, Statist ideas—which supremely exist and shed their spoors mostly on the Left side of a leftist-stained table cloth.

Here’s THE problem: even though pro-Jew and pro-Israel forces have moved to the right, the Jews have not

We are talking civilly at table here, okay? No conspiracies of “Jew Lizard Masters From Space,” or the Rothschild Illuminati, or anything crazy, okay? We are just—for the moment—talking here.

Okay; here’s THE problem: even though pro-Jew and pro-Israel forces have moved to the right, the Jews have not.


This makes no sense.

Why the hell is this?

Well, to begin: the Hebrew Bible tells of the “ger tosha,” or, “the resident stranger.” Along lines of this iconic piece of mystical mythology, Jews are taught that they should not ever “feel at home,” anywhere.

You see, this is a world and existence where Jews are eternally strangers.

This is natural to the mystical, maybe over-intellectualized Jew.

We Jews are taught and feel intuitively that we are all strangers and estranged on this planet—Earth. We do not belong. Anywhere.

This is the normal condition and birthright of the Jew. S/he belongs to Nowhere, and can exist Nowhere.

That is—NOT without the Biblical benevolence and forbearance of the State.

So. By extrapolation, Who feels at home in America?

Well. Republicans and Conservatives feel at home here with America-As-Founded.

That is, the Constitutional Declared America-As-Founded.

NOT the brilliantly demented, Obamanized Ver.2, where—in reading the alternative news— everything is flipped so far upside-down by the rabid, mad-dog left, so that we don’t even know where to pee, or what we can even say about every day, common, kitchen topics, like patriotism, or straight sex, or President Barack Hussein Obama—behind his three, personally chosen Arabic names—without maybe getting expelled from some “school,” or “ruined” in social media, fired from our job, or arrested.

So. It would seem that freedom and freedom of speech and good intentions are all but outlawed and punishable. Maybe even punishable by death at some future point, if trends continue. Be ready.

Maybe some don’t remember, but I do. My decorated uncles did not fight against the NAZI (National Socialist) Party, across Europe with Patton and freeze their butts off in ice at the Bulge, or in the sea at Omaha Beach, and fly B-17s through German flack (when it meant death and not Democrat “spin”), so that an entirely unbidden Barack Hussein Obama could “fundamentally transform America,” and implement all he has done to us.

So. Why would these Jews vote for something that is obviously not good for them any more than it is good for us?


Why, why, why?

Norman Podhoretz’s book seems to say, simply,  that Jews do not vote their own interest.

Some speculate they vote for their own view of themselves in a Matrix of “reality” they seem to have built. They vote for an outdated, outmoded, illicit, and bogus world view that no longer exists—if it ever did.

Jews apparently identify with those whom they seem to think are “just like them.” Strangers in this strange land of America; the downtrodden; the poor; the eaters of junk food and Skittles, and—WTF?

WHAT is all this about? WHO are all these “wronged” victims of America as founded—these supposed, sensitive, worthy, poor but brilliant and worthy, strangers in a strange land?

It’s generally agreed that Mr Podhoretz never actually answers this question in a single, comprehensive sentence. 

Jeff Jacoby is a conservative journalist and syndicated newspaper columnist, and we have THIS, from JEFF JACOBY, in CommentaryMagazine.com: 

“...Most American Jews…seem to have learned from an early age that to be Jewish is to be a liberal Democrat, no matter what. No matter that anti-Semitism today makes its home primarily on the Left, while in most quarters of the Right, hostility toward Jews has been anathematized. No matter that Israel’s worst enemies congregate with leftists, while its staunchest defenders tend to be resolute conservatives. No matter that Republicans support the Jewish state by far larger margins than Democrats do. No matter that on a host of issues—homosexuality, abortion, capital punishment, racial preferences, public prayer —the “Torah” of contemporary liberalism, as Podhoretz calls it, diverges sharply from the Torah of Judaism. As Why Are Jews Liberals? convincingly and depressingly demonstrates, the loyalty of American Jews to the Left has been unaffected by the failure of the Left to reciprocate that loyalty.

“The Jewish predilection for ill-advised political choices isn’t new. The Bible describes the yearning of the ancient Israelites for a king and God’s warning that monarchy would bring them despotism and misery. ‘Appoint a king,’ God has the prophet Samuel tell the people, ‘and he will seize your sons and daughters, your fields and vineyards: He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his servants. Then you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.’

“His warning fell on deaf ears: ‘Nevertheless, the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, No, but there shall be a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations….’

“…The longing to “be like all the nations” is a recurring motif in Jewish history. Baal worshipers in the time of the prophets, Judean Hellenists in the Chanukah story, 19th-century assimilationist maskilim, Jewish socialists enthralled by Marx’s classless Utopia, modern post-Zionists in quest of a non-Jewish Israel—down through the ages, in one way or another, innumerable Jews have fought or fled from Jewish ‘otherness’ and embraced ways of life or beliefs that promised to make them less distinctive. Given the cruelty and violence to which Jews were so often subjected, it is not surprising that many would seek to shed or neutralize their Jewishness….

“To be sure, loyalty to the Democratic party came naturally to Jews, with their inherited memories of a Europe in which emancipation had been a project of the Left and where reactionary anti-Semites had (usually) attacked from the Right. As Norman Podhoretz writes, that loyalty understandably intensified during World War II, when the most lethal enemy in Jewish history was ultimately destroyed by an alliance led by a liberal Democrat named Franklin Roosevelt….

“…FDR and Harry Truman are long gone, and so too is the muscular Democratic liberalism that defeated Adolf Hitler and brought the Holocaust to an end. To deal with the would-be Hitlers of our era—Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Jew-hating mullahs in Iran—-today’s Democrats counsel pacifism and appeasement and endless negotiation. These days it is the Right that calls for strong and decisive action against the enemies of the free world. Today the beleaguered Jewish state’s most unshakable American allies are Republican and conservative. Yet American Jews remain what they have been for so long: unshakably Democratic and liberal.

“This liberalism isn’t rational. It isn’t sensible. It certainly isn’t good for the Jews.

“But it is, as religions often are, deeply reassuring.

“It is reassuring for liberal Jews to believe that all people are fundamentally decent and reasonable, and that all disputes can be settled through compromise and conciliation. It is reassuring to believe in a world in which nothing is ever solved by war, so that military force is unnecessary and expensive weapons systems are wasteful. It is reassuring to believe that America is a secular nation, that God and religion have no place in the public square, and that no debt of gratitude is owed to the Christians who created the extraordinary society in which American Jews have thrived. It is reassuring to believe that crime is caused by guns, that academia is the seat of wisdom, and that humanity’s biggest problem is global warming. It is reassuring to believe that compassion can be achieved by passing the right laws and that big government can create prosperity. It is reassuring to believe that ‘tikkun olam’—healing the world—is a synonym for the liberal agenda and that the liberal agenda flows directly from the teachings of Judaism.

“Above all, it is reassuring to believe that Jews are no different from anyone else, that they are not called to a unique role in human events, and that the best way to be a good Jew is to be a conscientious citizen of the world.

“To be liberal, in short, is to be ‘like all the nations.’ It is a seductive and comforting belief, and American Jews are far from the first to embrace it.”

That’s it.

The End.

No snappy ending….
