‘the jews aren’t going anywhere’

The American Prospect: For what must be the hundredth time, Politico warns that Jews are getting ready to abandon Barack Obama:

“One said he had the sense that Obama “took the opportunity to throw Israel under the bus.” … If several dozen interviews with POLITICO are any indication, a similar conversation is taking place in Jewish communities across the country. Obama’s speech last month seems to have crystallized the doubts many pro-Israel Democrats had about Obama in 2008 in a way that could, on the margins, cost the president votes and money in 2012 and will not be easy to repair.”

Oh, please…. We’ve been hearing this ever since Obama became the Democratic nominee in 2008. Jews don’t trust him! He had Palestinian friends! There’s that Reverend Wright! Here’s an article from May 2008: “As Obama Heads to Florida, Many of Its Jews Have Doubts.” And guess what: Obama won 78 percent of Jewish votes anyway. John Kerry got 74 percent in 2004, and Al Gore got 79 percent in 2000. In other words, Obama did pretty much exactly as well as other Democrats.

…in the end, Obama will have no trouble raising money, and getting votes, from Jews … Sarah Palin can put on a Star of David necklace, but that’s never going to convince Jews that they’re part of the Republican family. GOP candidates can talk about their love of Israel all they want, but it won’t be enough.

No harm was intended, I know, but I deleted a link in the comments today to the GOPolitico story mentioned in this article – because it was yet more fabricated and abysmal propaganda from that rag. Let’s just be mindful of their agenda – if I had a dollar for every time GOPolitico posted a ‘Jews Turning On Obama!’ article I’d be stinking rich. As endless articles by the serious media have shown, it’s a complete lie. Eg:

Ynetnews: President Obama continues to be popular among American Jews – in fact 15% more popular than Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a poll conducted by Israeli lobby J-Street….

According to the poll, Obama managed to maintain his popularity among 59% of American Jews  ….  In contrast, only 44% of American Jews continued to pledge their support to Netanyahu….

Pollster Jim Gerstein told Ynet the survey results prove that whoever thinks Jewish support of the American president has been declining is “detached from reality.” (Full article here)

So, no more GOPolitico ‘Obama Hates Israel’ links, okay? This is a fabricated-right-wing-propaganda-free-zone – links of that kind will be deleted, every time. Please, only ever link GOPolitico stories in the comments if they’re neutral and newsworthy (a rare enough happening on that site), otherwise I don’t want that cesspit linked here. Thanks.

‘beyond parody’

Steve Benen: … This week, Mike Huckabee launched a new educational company called Learn Our History. As the Fox News personality sees it, mean liberals have destroyed history lessons, and he intends to put things right: “America’s youth aren’t excited about our past because they’re being taught history in a way that minimizes what has made America a beacon of hope around the world for over 200 years.”

….Those who buy Learn Our History’s shameless, nationalistic propaganda lessons will finally get “historically accurate and unbiased education.”

And what, pray tell, does “historically accurate and unbiased education” look like? Apparently, it looks like this.

(If you have a weak stomach, do not click play)

As one wise observer put it, “Zombie Reagan saved America from the blacks, the Disco, the terrorists, the Russians, and maybe in a future chapter the alien invasion.”

It’s true. Knife-wielding black people wearing disco t-shirts were apparently a real problem, right up until January 1981…..
