Trump was right, American Jews who vote Democratic are traitors to their ethnic nation, the Jewish nation, and by extension to their political nation, America
As we have previously reported, the public relations stunt that was the “visit” to Israel (or as they have called it: Palestine) by Reps. Omar and Tlaib was largely a non-event in Israel. Back in the US, the two Muslim congresswomen stepped on their own message first with Tlaib’s grandma gambit and then with their anti-Israel charade of a presser, token Jews in tow. In general, things did not seem to go well for the sisterhood of the traveling anti-Semites, until, that is, President Trump stepped into the fray.
When asked, on live TV, why so many American Jews still prefer to vote for the Democratic party even in the face of his administration’s unprecedented support for Israel, Trump could have punted or simply said something about how Republicans needed to do a better job reaching out to traditionally Democratic Jewish voters. But then he wouldn’t have been Trump, would he?
Instead, Mr. Trump chose this moment and this question to drop one of the biggest truth bombs of his presidency to date, a bomb whose explosions, both primary and secondary are still very much felt around the American media, social and otherwise. Jews who vote Democratic, he offered without hesitation, are either “ill informed”, in other words, dumb as a rock, or “greatly disloyal”. The second part of the answer was so incendiary that it completely eclipsed the first, though both parts of the answer were designed to work in tandem.
The first part of the answer was akin to the small charge of plastic explosive that rams together the two halves of the plutonium sphere in an atom bomb, raising the combined mass of fissile material above critical and causing a nuclear explosion. When looking at the mushroom cloud, no one remembers the 500 grams of TNT, but without it there would be nothing to look at.
As everyone knows, American Jews are among the most informed and the most politically engaged Americans and the idea that they, of all people, are “ill informed”, is simply ludicrous. The power of the incongruity that is calling American Jews “ill informed” is what sets up the nuclear blast to follow: since no Democratic-voting American Jews are “ill informed”, all of them must be disloyal.
Needless to say, the question this statement raises in every observer is “who or what, exactly, does POTUS think that the vast majority of American Jews are disloyal to?”
In this unspoken, but utterly unavoidable question lies the genius of Trump and his self-proclaimed infallible “gut instinct”. There could be no more succinct, no pithier, no more devastating shot fired by a Gentile at the heart of American Jewry. Nothing that anyone can possibly imagine could quite so decisively rip off the veil of duplicity, complicity, and self-delusion that the American Jewry, in its vast majority, has been wrapping itself in ever since they fully committed to supporting Barack Hussein Obama and his blatantly anti-Jewish, anti-Zionist, anti-Israeli, and by extension anti-Semitic agenda.
America is a hyphenated nation. There are Native-Americans, Polish-Americans, Italian-Americans. In fact, every American has a hyphen, even if it is just a color, like “white”. There is no problem with this reality; why would there be? Eisenhower was a German-American whom nobody could accuse of harboring dual loyalties to Germany. Millions of Polish-Americans do not pledge allegiance to Poland. Neither do Jewish Americans pledge allegiance to Israel, nor would Israel expect or even want them to do so.
With that being said, those same Polish-Americans are loyal to the IDEA of Poland. Poland, sitting as it is next to a major power, Russia, has often failed to keep its independence. I highly doubt that any Polish-Americans would find it palatable should Russia seek to reintegrate Poland into its modern-day empire. Why? Why would they care? They would care, and deeply so, because they have allegiance not to Poland as an independent sovereign nation, but to Poland BEING an independent and sovereign nation.
Substitute “Somalia” and “Palestine” for Poland, and you get the attitudes of the Somali-American Ilhan Omar and the Palestinian-American Rashida Tlaib. Both are vocal in their support for their hyphenated places of origin. Not support for these political entities per se, but support for the existence of such political entities on the world map.
The left-wing Jewish-American organization that calls itself the Anti-Defamation League has absolved, as was reported in our resource, Reps. Omar and Tlaib from the charge of anti-Semitism. They were wrong to issue such an absolution and in doing so, to quote President Trump, exhibited a “great disloyalty”. There can be no more anti-Semitic stance than the stance of the Omars and the Tlaibs of this world who deny Jews their nationhood and by extension deny the very idea of Jews as a people among peoples, a people that has a distinct geographic origin and thus a claim to that distinct geography, a geography in which it has the right of self-determination and independence.
The mother of all anti-Semitic tropes is that Jews are a collection of individuals who profess a common religion (Judaism), but have nothing in common beyond that. This is the ideology of all modern anti-Semites whether they be Jewish or Gentile and it is the narrative that is used every minute of every day by Israel’s enemies, not to change Israel’s borders or to modify its behavior; no this narrative is used to deny Israel the very right to exist, in other words, to wipe it off the map.
Reps. Omar and Tlaib are unequivocal adherents to this most anti-Semitic of ideologies and in this they are now followed by every single Democratic official and voter, including Jews. Jews who vote Democratic, let alone Jews who hold elected office on behalf of the Democratic Party and leadership positions in Jewish organizations such as the aforementioned ADL are “greatly disloyal” to their own people and their own ancestors who endured, for two millennia, every hardship and who put their own lives at risk countless times to ensure that they would be born Jewish. Jewish not as adherents to a particular religion, but as members of a tribe, a nation, a people, an ethnic group, with origins in the narrow strip of land between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean, a land that had only three names in history: Canaan, Israel, and Judah.
There are many reasons why the idea that Jews are simply a religious group is false, but two bear particular mention. The first and the less important one is that the American Jews who profess that belief are not religious in the least. These folks range from complete atheists to those who adhere to the Judaism-lite “denominations” of Reformed and Conservative Judaism. No truly religious Jew can possibly believe that the Jews are not a nation with its origins in the Holy Land and for a very good reason. Alone among all the great religions of the world, the Jewish religion in its very scripture down to its very basic tenets is meant exclusively for a single tribe – the Jews. The Jewish Bible, as anyone who has ever read the Old Testament knows, is nothing but a telling of how the Jewish people came to be, how they received from the Lord the blessing of life eternal and the gift of the Land of Israel, and how they tried, unsuccessfully, with more failures than triumphs, to live up to His expectations and keep their Promised Land.
It is no more possible to remove the beating heart from a person without killing him than it is possible to remove the People of Israel and the Land of Israel from Judaism, the Jewish religion. And yet, this is precisely what seven out of ten American Jews, those that vote Democratic, have been attempting to do ever since they jumped on board the pro-Muslim, anti-Zionist, rabidly globalist Obama train. These Jews have engaged in every bit of mental gymnastics to explain why they, an assemblage of atheists and agnostics, are the keepers of Judaism, a religion created exclusively by and for one nation and one nation only – the Jews.
What are these Democratic voting Jews disloyal to? They are disloyal to the very IDEA of the State of Israel, the sovereign national homeland for a distinct ethnic group we know of as Jews. We know that they are disloyal to that idea not because of Trump’s comments, but because they openly support people, from Obama to Tlaib, whose primary goal is the eradication of the Jewish state and the establishment in its place of a homeland for a nation that has never existed and doesn’t exist today, the Palestinians.
These Jewish-Americans are akin to Polish-Americans who would advocate for the redistribution of Poland between Germany and Russia or Armenian-Americans who would work to re-absorb Christian Armenia into Muslim Turkey. Greece was not a unified political entity until the mid-19th century, when it gained, with Britain’s help, independence from the Ottoman Turks. I doubt that there is even a single Greek-American who would want to see that independence reversed and Greeks become Turkish vassals again.
We the Jews have been cursed through our demerits with many a traitor in our midst, but never have we experienced the mass treason that is today’s American Jewry. Luckily, this treason carries within itself the harshest of all penalties: Jews who are “greatly disloyal”, Jews who betray countless generations of their sainted ancestors, Jews who are traitors to their nation as a full 70% of American Jews are today, pay the highest of all penalties: they die. They die spiritually, they relinquish their membership in the most exclusive club in human history: His Chosen People.
Their offspring, if any, will not know the exquisite joy and harsh responsibility that is what being Jewish is all about. They will never know the sheer happiness of being able to serve, to the best one’s ability, as the bridge between generations of Jews past to generations future. They will perform little tricks for little treats for their globalist masters, get their minute of TV time or another house on a lake, always subservient, always laughed at, always the traitors in everyone’s eyes but their own, always suffering the traitors’ fate: oblivion.
