How the Democrat Party Became the Party of the Oldest Hatred in the World

The recent Israel vs. Hamas action has provided an excuse for ramping up it. But, it’s not new.

Antisemitism is sometimes called the oldest hatred in the world. The recent Israel vs.Hamas action has given liberal Americans and Democrats an excuse to become more aggressive in their hatred toward Jews. But make no mistake, this is not a new phenomenon. The left has been spewing the world’s oldest hatred for decades, and much of the Antisemitism is cloaked as being anti-Israel because…well, it seems more polite. Democratic Party-Leftist Antisemitism

The Jewish community had a close relationship with the Civil Rights movement. However, after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., the Civil Rights movement’s new leadership turned against their Jewish allies. They saw the Jews as their competition for achieving middle-class status. Black leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with anti-Semitic comments. As the Antisemitism spread, the hatred didn’t infest all Black Americans but became popular with some Black leaders on the liberal side of the aisle and eventually spread throughout the liberal/Democratic community.

In 1984, Desmond Tutu helped to spread the hatred when he publicly complained about American Jews, saying Jews exhibited “an arrogance—the arrogance of power because Jews are a powerful lobby in this land and all kinds of people woo their support”(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Daily News Bulletin, Nov. 29, 1984). Speaking in a Connecticut church in 1984, Tutu said that “the Jews thought they had a monopoly on God; Jesus was angry that they could shut out other human beings.”

That same year 1984 saw Jesse Jackson referring to Jews as “Hymies” and New York City as “Hymietown.” 1991 saw Al Sharpton incite anti-Jewish pogroms in Crown Heights, NY, and 1995 saw him incite the fire-bombing at the Jewish-owned Freddy’s Fashion Mart in Harlem. Still, today before Democrats decide to run for national office, they visit Sharpton to “kiss his ring.”

To gain the support of Black voters away from the GOP who traditionally supported African-American causes, the Democrats began to turn away from Jewish interests, especially Israel, whose win in the Six-Day-War combined with the anti-Vietnam War movement made it easy for the left to position Israel as war-like aggressors. The party’s hatred became obvious during the presidency of Jimmy Carter.

Carter, honored as having the greatest post-presidency of any POTUS in history, was an anti-Semite during his presidency and post-presidency. A few examples of his hatred include:

  • In a 2007 FrontPage piece, liberal Alan Dershowitz reported about Carter’s belief that Jewish money controls media coverage of Israel and Congressional support. In later years Carter’s opinions have been echoed by other leftist anti-Semites such as Ilhan Omar, Helen Thomas, and others.
  • As President Carter rejected someone for a position on the board of the Holocaust Memorial Council because the guy’s name was too Jewish:
  • During his post-presidency, Carter got even worse because he obsessively fostered a hatred for a dead guy. Menachem Begin. Carter feels that Begin cost him the 1980 election and cost him the opportunity to be known as the greatest peacemaker ever in the history of the world.
  • He popularized the canard that Israel was an apartheid state with his book, “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid.” In that anti-Semitic and anti-Israel tome, Carter again referred to U.S. policy about Israel due to Jewish money. His book caused many in the leadership of the Carter Center for Public Policy to quit.

Despite his record of hatred, Jimmy Carter is revered by Democrats.

Note: if we Jews are supposed to have all that money, where the heck my share?

Much of the Leftist/Democratic Party Jew-hatred began after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and was promoted by the next generation of leaders. Jews and Dr. King were strong allies, but that changed after his passing.

In 2003 former Congressman James Moran (D-VA.) made the false charge that the leaders of America’s Jewish community sent America into war in Iraq to benefit Israel, a charge that Barack Obama repeated in 2015.

In 2005 Democrat John Dingell discussed the crisis in Lebanon and proclaimed himself neutral. “I don’t take sides for or against Hezbollah; I don’t take sides for or against Israel.” Asked, “You’re not against Hezbollah?” Dingell answers, “No…”

In 2004 then-Senator Ernest Hollings (D-SC) said President Bush went to war in Iraq “to secure our friend, Israel” and the Jewish vote “everybody knows it,”

During former-Congressman Keith Ellison’s (D-MN) run for congress in 2006, The Washington Post reported that Ellison had defended Farrakhan against accusations of Antisemitism in 1989 and in 1990. Powerline’s Scott Johnson reported Ellison supported anti-Semitic statements from others and during the same period. Once he got into Congress, Ellison supported other pro-terrorism, anti-Jewish and anti-Israel acts. But that is for a different post, one covering more recent Democratic Party anti-Israel, anti-Semitic statements.

The above Democrats plus many others may have been fueled by the popular leftist websites such as Huffington Post and the Daily Kos:

  • “Ned Lamont and his supporters need to [g]et real busy. Ned needs to beat Lieberman to a pulp in the debate and define what it means to be an American who is NOT beholden to the Israeli Lobby” (by “rim,” posted on Huffington Post, July 6, 2006)
  • “Joe’s on the Senate floor now and he’s growing a beard. He has about a weeks growth on his face. . . . I hope he dyes his beard Blood red. It would be so appropriate” (by “ctkeith,” posted on Daily Kos, July 11 and 12, 2005).
  • On “Lieberman vs. Murtha”: “as everybody knows, jews [sic] ONLY care about the welfare of other jews; thanks ever so much for reminding everyone of this most salient fact, so that we might better ignore all that jewish propaganda [by Lieberman] about participating in the civil rights movement of the 60s and so on” (by “tomjones,” posted on Daily Kos, Dec. 7, 2005).
  • “Good men, Daniel Webster and Faust would attest, sell their souls to the Devil. Is selling your soul to a god any worse? Leiberman cannot escape the religious bond he represents. Hell, his wife’s name is Haggadah or Muffeletta or Diaspora or something you eat at Passover” (by “gerrylong,” posted on the Huffington Post, July 8, 2006).

Conservatism went in a totally different direction. It was an anti-Semitic movement until William F. Buckley did his best to drive Antisemitism out of the conservative movement. Beginning with its initial issue in 1955, the National Review was not only the “bible” of conservatism but void of the Jew-hatred that was at the time a big part of the conservative movement. And when a National Review writer/editor was found to be anti-Semitic like Pat Buchanan and Joseph Sobran, they were fired.

Conservative favorites such as aviator Charles Lindbergh and Henry Ford were staunchly anti-Semitic, as were the post-war conservative anti-communist groups such as the John Birch Society and The Liberty Lobby. They weren’t allowed anywhere near Buckley’s magazine.

This is not to say that the conservative movement has rid itself of all anti-Semites, but it is no longer acceptable thanks to Buckley’s efforts. On the other hand, Democrats who hate Jews and/or spew anti-Israel comments to cover up their Antisemitism are still accepted by the party, and to help them out, their Jew-hatred is covered up by the leftist media.

June 6, 1944 D-Day: The Allied Invasion Saves The World From Nazi Tyranny.

Published

on

June 6, 2021, is the 77th Anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy. The invasion that saved the world from Nazi allied invasion of Normandy On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Code named Operation Overlord, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” The invasion was supposed to happen on the 5th, but the weather forced Eisenhower to delay: Capt. James Martin Stagg was the chief meteorologist of the British Royal Air Force and was the one to brief Eisenhower about the rough seas and lashing rain affecting the shore on June 5. Stagg previsioned the small window of better weather for early morning June 6….The Germans did not foresee this brief break in the bad weather. In fact, they forecast unsettled weather until mid-June. In charge with the defense of the invasion of beaches with the Germans, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was certain there would be no invasion between June 5 and 8 because the tides would not be favorable. Rommel was very wrong. On June 6th, more than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foothold in Continental Europe. Within ten days, there were half a million troops ashore, and within three weeks, there were two million. Allied invasion of Normandy The invasion was the most massive amphibious military assault in history and required extensive planning. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded. Their sacrifice allowed the allies to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, defeat Adolph Hitler’s troops, and save…

Erasing History? Tiananmen Square, the Anniversary China Wants Us To Forget

What happened in China on June 4th, 1989, is something worth remembering every year.

Published

By Wes Walker Should we respect China as just another modern state in the competitive mix with all the others? Or should we view their regime more like a dangerous coiled snake waiting for its chance to strike? If you listen to Hollywood, the NBA, and even Joe Biden, you might be lulled to sleep by the lullaby that China is just another advanced nation taking its place at the table among friendly rival nations… that we shouldn’t take their threats to nuke America too seriously. Nor should we worry too much about the COVID cover-up, or the various inroads they have been making at corrupting Universities, stealing IP, acquiring dual-use technologies, ramping up their military potential, or harassing their neighbors. And we definitely, definitely, shouldn’t pay any attention to the close financial ties Joe Biden’s family has to the CCP… asking who the Big Guy is who gets 10% is strictly off-limits. But some of us have memories longer than a goldfish. And June 4th happens to mark an important day in history — one worth remembering every year. A famous photo from that event is etched in the minds of most anyone who was alive to remember when it was news. https://twitter.com/txsharmatweet/status/1400168668261011456 Here’s an image of that day you probably have NOT seen before. https://twitter.com/Stand_with_HK/status/1398289205680353281 The Chinese army crackdown on the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests killed at least 10,000 people, according to newly released UK documents. The figure was given in a secret diplomatic cable from then British ambassador to China, Sir Alan Donald. The original source was a friend of a member of China’s State Council, the envoy says. Previous estimates of the deaths in the pro-democracy protests ranged from several hundred to more than 1,000. China’s statement at the end of June 1989 said that 200…
