Guy White is toying around with the strange notion that Jews are “particularly bad” at politics. This one is sure to elicit uproarious rounds of laughter inside and beyond the Beltway.
1.) The phalanx of Jewish organizations has no peer amongst the ethnic lobbies. To my knowledge, Anglo-Protestants do not have so much as one organization that represents their interests.
2.) Jews are overrepresented in Congress: Jews make up only 1.7% of the U.S. adult population but 8.4% of congressional members, including 13% of senators. Protestants were 74.1% of congressional members in 1961, but are only 54.7% today. Anglo-Protestant representation in Congress has declined even more drastically over the last 50 years.
3.) Jews are overrepresented on the Supreme Court: 2/9 Supreme Court Justices (Breyer and Ginsberg) are Jews. If Sonia Sotomayor wins confirmation, 6/9 Supreme Court Justices will be Catholics (Alito, Scalia, Kennedy, Sotomayor, Thomas, Roberts). The elderly John Paul Stevens will be the only Anglo-Protestant left on the bench. Obama will undoubtedly replace him with a more “diverse” candidate.
4.) 78% of Jews cast their ballot for Barack Obama. Their candidate is now President of the United States. 65% of White Protestants voted for John McCain. The Anglo-Protestant share of the McCain vote was undoubtedly higher.
5.) Less than a week ago, the House of Representatives passed the annual foreign aid bill, which allocated $2.22 billion in security aid to Israel. “When the $2.22 billion in Israel aid is combined with $555 million that was passed in an earlier supplemental funding bill, that makes a total of $2.775 billion in military aid for Israel.” Israel has milked Anglo-Protestant taxpayers out of countless billions of dollars over the past several decades.
6.) Thanks to the Jewish Lobby, America and Israel are joined at the hip; Anglo-Protestant soldiers are committed to dying for Israel.
7.) Jews alone account for over 50% of campaign contributions to the Democratic Party. They are the spearhead of the progressive left which now controls the federal government.
8.) The State Department has an Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism. The Jewish interest in fighting “anti-Semitism” has been elevated to one of America’s strongest taboos.
