Liberal Rabbi Continues Secular Humanist Hatred For All Things Christian And Tim Tebow

December 21, 2011

Rabbi Joshua Hammerman, in tooting his own horn as loudly as he knows how, boasts that he is the winner of the Rockover Award (which just so happens to be “the highest honor in Jewish journalism,” by the way).  And his columb appears regularly in New York Jewish Week.

Here is his latest and greatest wise musing:

“If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.”

I mean, you could literally sing those lyrics to the tune, “If Hitler hadn’t killed six million Jews, the world would have been a much worse place.”

Interestingly, our Rabbi is a coward.  He delected those words from his blog, oh, much the way the Daily Kos deleted from its site allegations that Sarah Palin was faking her pregnancy with son Trig because the baby was really Brittany’s by incestuous relationship with her father (and Sarah’s husband).

The hatemongering continued until it was revealed that Bristol was herself pregnant – and that it was therefore biologically impossible that she could have been pregnant with Trig.  At which time the Daily Kos purged their site.  They didn’t apologize, they just slunk away like the despicable and vile cowards that they have always been.

When the going gets tough, you can always trust liberals to change their story.  Unless they can delete it and claim they never said it to begin with.

You would think of ALL people, Jews would have learned the lesson about such hateful demonization.

You would also think that a rabbi who says that Christians are so damn intolerant and hateful would think about how hypocritical he was being when he made such a despicable statement.  He literally singles Tim Tebow out – whom I’m willing to bet has never said a hateful thing about Jews or about burning mosques in his life – and attributes fanatical and deragened hate to him and to those who root for him.

But not this Jew.  And not most liberal Jews for that matter – who continue to vote for Democrats and vote for the most profoundly anti-Israel president in American history.

Understand, this attack against Tim Tebow and the Christianity said Tim Tebow believes in is just another in a long series of leftist attacks.

Now, understand, I am a fierce supporter of Israel.  Which is to say that I am FAR more pro-Israel than most American Jews (for the record, there are all KINDS of American liberal Jews who regard Israel and their fellow Jews who live there with naked contempt).  For too many liberal American Jews, the subject of “the Jewish state” is met with embarassed silence.  And liberal Democrat Jews continue to believe that liberal Jews don’t much care about Israel.  Hopefully that is changing as more American Jews understand that Barack Obama represents an existential threat to Israel that is frankly worse than the threat of Iran (and that because it frankly doesn’t matter who their enemies are if America remains her steadfast friend).

Norman Podhoretz writes a thoroughly-researched book in which we find him “maintaining that Democratic attitudes toward Israel range from unsympathetic to passionately hostile while the Republicans, with some exceptions, have been solidly to fervently supportive since the end of the 1967 Six-Day War.”

A review of Podhoretz’s book, “Why Jews Are Liberals” has this to say:

Yet, in terms of Israel support, there were reasons to think 2008 would be a good year for the GOP. John McCain’s long history of sympathy with Israel should have given him an advantage over Barack Hussein Obama, whose history consisted of associating with enemies of the Jewish state like the unapologetic bigot Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Nevertheless, proving Pod’s assertion that Statist “Jews” have not cared about Israel/Judaism for decades, Obama beat Mr. McCain among Jewish voters by roughly a 70-30 ratio. Obama did far better with Jews than with any other ethnic/religious group, sans blacks, and Podhorertz relays some stats:

The Jewish vote for him was 25 points higher than the 53% he scored with the electorate as a whole; 35 points higher than the 43% he scored with whites; 11 points higher than the 67% he scored with Hispanics; 33 points higher than the 45% he scored with Protestants; and 24 points higher than the 54% he scored with Catholics.

In his closing paragraphs, Podhoretz clarifies a final time:

“The social, political and moral system that liberals wish to transform is the very system in and through which Jews found a home such as they had never discovered in all their forced wanderings tyhroughout the centuries over the face of the earth.”

We fundamentalist Christians – unlike liberal Jews – stand strongly besides Israel and we vow to stand WITH Israel.  Even to our own hurt.  And the interesting thing is that this uberliberal rabbi implicitly affirms that.  It’s not Jews that we’re going to target if Tebot wins the Super Bowl; no sir, we’re going to burn down all the mosques and target every single immigrant BUT Jews.

At suppose that’s an improvement from this hypocrite hater; he could have accused us of hating on Jews, too.

I use the term “Judeo-Christian” to understand my faith.  I believe that Messiah Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament and said that every jot and tittle of it would ultimately be fulfilled.  That means that there is a place for Jews and a place for national Israel in God’s kingdom.  And with my fellow evangelical Christians, I eagerly wait to see that day when God brings all of His people together.  And I continue to stand up in vocal support of the state of Israel and call for America to defend God’s chosen people against her mortal enemies until that blessed day the prophets anticipated comes to pass.

That faith is far stronger than Rabbi Joshua Hammerman’s hate and bigotry.  So my attitude toward Israel and toward faithful Jews does not change so much as a single degree.
