Jews May Vote Against Hitler Because ‘They Feel They Want To Protect Their Wealth’ (Oops, Did I Say Hitler? I Meant To Say Obama)

September 14, 2011

Democrats are racists from the party of racism.

People tend to forget that.  But Democrats fought a vicious war to protect slavery; and then they began the Ku Klux Klan as the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party; and so on.

Well, here we are in late 2011, and the blatant Antisemitism of the Democrat liberal base is in full swing on the evening of a vert humiliating election disaster (well, make that yet another in a series of humiliating election disasters dating back to the first chance voters got to show Democrats just how much they suck when Republicans took Ted Kennedy’s Senate Seat away in liberal Massachusetts):

Waxman: Jews May Vote Against Obama Because ‘They Feel They Want to Protect Their Wealth’
Posted by JammieWearingFool at 7:55 AM
 
Republican Bob Turner is poised to win the special election in NY-9 today and loathsome Democrat Henry Waxman offers his unique spin why Jewish voters are fleeing Obama in droves.

“If Turner wins on Tuesday, it will be largely due to the incredible unpopularity of Barack Obama dragging his party down in the district,” wrote Tom Jensen of the Democratic-affiliated Public Policy Polling, one of the firms whose poll had Turner in the lead.

The PPP poll found that Democratic candidate David Weprin has a net positive approval rating, but the president’s job approval rating had slipped to 31 percent in the district, which he won with 55 percent in 2008.

“If Obama’s approval in the district was even 40 percent Weprin would almost definitely be headed to Congress,” Jensen wrote. “He’s getting dragged down by something bigger than himself.”

A Democratic strategist said Obama has become such a problem for down-ticket Democrats that he was wary of encouraging candidates to run next year. “I’m warning my clients — ‘Don’t run in 2012.’ I don’t want to see good candidates lose by 12 to 15 points because of the president,” said the strategist.

National Democrats have parachuted in since the race tightened: The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is spending $500,000 on television ads in the highly expensive media market, while the Democratic outside group House Majority PAC has spent an additional $100,000.

The race might point to another trend: a softening in Obama support from the Jewish community, which strongly backed him in 2008. The district has one of the largest Orthodox Jewish communities in the country.

Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), a prominent Jewish congressman, said the Jewish vote is a concern for his party.

“I think Jewish voters will be Democratic and be for Obama in 2012, especially if you get a Republican candidate like [Texas] Gov. [Rick] Perry,” he said. “But there’s no question the Jewish community is much more bipartisan than it has been in previous years. There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, and some of it, quite frankly, for economic reasons. They feel they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.”

What does that say about Obama? Basically, if you want to protect your wealth, be you Jewish or whatever, don’t vote for Obama.

Thanks for that ringing endorsement, Nostrilitus.

Faced with a six-point deficit in the polls (which local TV and radio call “razor thin” and “too close to call”), the desperate Democrats called in aging Lothario Bill Clinton for some robo-calls, where he repeated the typical Democrat lies.

“Hello, this is President Bill Clinton. I’m calling to ask you to support David Weprin in today’s special election for Congress. The New York Times endorsed David. They support him for the same reasons I do: because he’ll stand up for the middle class, he’ll support a good program to put Americans back to work, and he’ll oppose the Tea Party plan to destroy Medicare. Again, it’s President Bill Clinton, I’m proud to support David Weprin for Congress and I hope you will too. Thanks.”

They have nothing to offer but fear itself.

Black conservatives – and now Jews – can readily attest that sacred minorities can become instantly evil villains; all they have to do is vote against Democrats.

You’d better tow the damn Democrat line, minorities.  Because there is a racist and vicious Democrat Party just waiting to pour hate on you if you don’t vote the way they want you to.

Which, interestingly, was EXACTLY how the Democrats were acting in the Civil War days, too.

Look at how liberals “de-blackificated” Clarence Thomas:

What do liberals want to do with Clarence Thomas?  “String him up.”  “Send him back to the fields.”

David Horowitz once called blacks the “human shields of the Democrat Party.”

But it’s funny how quickly the white liberal establishment will throw one of its shields into the fire and burn it.

For the record, Jews haven’t “misunderstood” a damn thing.  Barack Obama – whose spiritual mentor and pastor for 23 years (Jeremiah Wright) was a hard-core anti-Semite himself has been more anti-Israel than any American president in the entire existence of Israel since its 1948 birth.

Thanks directly to Barack Hussein Obama, Israel is more exposed and is in greater danger than at any time since it was threatened with extermination in 1948.  To argue first that Jews aren’t smart enough to understand that an Antisemitic president has put their nation in direct jeopardy even as he has groveled before Israel’s most dangerous enemies, and then to argue secondly that somehow they are wrong for wanting to vote in their own clear economic interests, takes some incredibly amazing chutzpah.

Republican Bob Turner Wins Weiner’s Seat (Held By Democrats Since 1923) In MAJOR Obama Buttkicking

September 13, 2011

The überliberal Los Angeles Times said this about the Weiner seat race Saturday, September 10:

The district has not been represented by a Republican since 1923. But Weiner’s departure, coupled with voter discontent over President Obama’s handling of the economy, could change that Tuesday when the district votes in a special election to fill the seat.

“If Turner wins, it’s going to be perceived to be, and in some sense really will be, a referendum on Obama,” said Douglas Muzzio, professor of public affairs at Baruch College in New York.

As Obama struggles to gain footing on a wobbly economy, his party has begun a frantic effort to avoid the embarrassment of losing the seat.

[…]

“Democrats need to keep this seat just to save face,” Malone said. “Not only is the money flowing, but all of these elected [Democratic] officials, they’re all asking their staff members if they could take time out to go campaign for Weprin.”

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee invested about $500,000 on a last-minute advertising campaign. House Majority PAC, a Democratic super PAC, has spent at least $100,000 to run its own ad assailing Turner for his “tea party” ties.

That’s a lot of money in a race in which the candidates had raised $654,755 combined by late August.

Turner’s campaign got a small boost from the National Organization for Marriage. The group pledged to spend $75,000 to oppose Weprin, who in June voted for the bill that legalized same-sex marriage in New York.

National Republican Party groups had yet to spend significantly on the race, suggesting that the party might have less faith in Turner than his late boost in the polls might suggest. But even a close race — Turner won just 39% of the vote in his run against Weiner in 2010 — would be enough to embarrass Democrats.

“Even if Turner comes up short, it’s sort of a feather in the cap of the Republican Party,” Malone said.

Well, now Democrats aren’t just “embarassed.”  They’re crunched like the nasty little disease-carrying roaches they are.

Not only did Democrats lose the seat, but they lost it to a guy who “launched conservativer provacateur Rush Limbaugh’s talk show.”

Even with a 3-1 advantage in Democrat regirstration over Republican registration, it wasn’t really even close:

With about 70 percent of precincts reporting late Tuesday, Turner had 53 percent of the vote to Weprin’s 47 percent.

The also überliberal Washington Post wrote it up thus:

Republican Bob Turner wins New York special election
Posted by Rachel Weinerat 11:58 PM ET, 09/13/2011

Businessman Bob Turner (R) defeated state Assemblyman David Weprin (D) in the special election for the House seat held by former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner (D).

Turner’s victory is regarded as an upset given the Democratic history of the 9th district, which takes in portions of Brooklyn and Queens, as well as the fact that President Obama carried the seat by 11 points in 2008.

“New Yorkers put Washington Democrats on notice that voters are losing confidence in a President whose policies assault job-creators and affront Israel,” said National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) in a statement after Turner’s win.

Republican Bob Turner won a New York seat that Democrats expected to hold.

Although the district may well be eliminated by Empire State line-drawers tasked with cutting down New York’s congressional delegation by two seat before 2012, the result will buoy Republicans hopes heading into 2012 and spur anxiety among Democrats.

Republicans also easily held a seat in Nevada’s GOP-heavy 2nd district, which has never elected a Democrat. State Sen. Mark Amodei (R) beat state Treasurer Kate Marshall (D) in a special election for the House seat left open by Sen. Dean Heller (R), who was appointed to replace Sen. John Ensign (R). Ensign resigned earlier this year over a scandal involving an aide.

The New York seat, which was vacated by Weiner earlier this year following relevations of his involvement in a series of online liaisons with women who weren’t his wife, was initially considered safe for Democrats.

While it’s conservative by New York City standards, Democrats still have a 3-to-1 registration advantage in the district.

Republicans sought to turn the race into a referendum on President Obama, tying Weprin to the surprisingly unpopular commander-in-chief at every turn. (Obama’s approval rating was at 43 percent in the district, according to a survey conducted by Siena Research Institute).

Both House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus cast the result as a rebuke of Obama’s new jobs plan.

Obama’s position on Israel became, fairly or not, an effective wedge against Weprin. The Democratic candidate tried to distance himself from Obama’s assertion that Israel should return to its pre-1967 borders but Turner effectively linked that position, deeply unpopular in the district’s Jewish community, to his Democratic rival.

Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, a Democrat, endorsed Turner and explained that a victory by the Republican would be the best way for Democrats to send a message to the President.

The National Jewish Democratic Council disputed the idea that Israel was a major factor.

“In the end, in this difficult economy, Americans — including in New York’s Ninth District — are hurting,” said National Jewish Democratic Council President David Harris. “In this atypical district, they’ve reacted atypically.”

In the run-up to Tuesday’s vote, Democratic party leaders were doing everything they could to de-couple those vote from any sort of national trend.

As evidence they cited the fact that Democratic performance in the district has been eroding for years. In the 2000 presidential election, Al Gore got 67 percent of the vote; Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) got only 56 percent in 2004, and Barack Obama 55 percent in 2008.

Moreover, Democratic strategists noted that they had a fairly weak candidate in Weprin, whose campaign was plagued by gaffes. He was chosen by party leaders largely because he promised not to challenge another incumbent in 2012, should his seat be eliminated in redistricting.

With New York slated to lose two seats due to growth over the last decade that lagged the national average, the 9th is considered ripe territory to be eliminated although no formal redistricting discussions have taken place.

As we’ve written, special elections are notoriously unreliable as predictors of future results. But for now, Democrats have reason to be spooked.

If Democrats had any wisdom at all, they were be spooked about the fact that very nearly all of them are going to burn in hell forever someday.  But as it is they’re more “spooked” the way cockroaches are spooked when you turn on the light in the kitchen.

The granddaddy of überliberalism New York Times said that Democrats were getting real scared about Obama’s chances of getting re-elected just a couple of days ago.  How do you think they feel tonight after losing a seat they’d held for almost a hundred years?

Democrats are following their failed president straight into the disaster they deserve. Leprosy is more popular than this total loser.
