Dear Jewish-American leftists: It's time for a talk
The Democratic Party of the 1950s was the party of the underdog, and you're forever the underdog, in your mind, in your memory and by virtue of our tiny demographic. Your parents and grandparents have been married to the Democratic party since before you were born, and you can't let go of what has been engrained in you with mother's milk. Understandable.
Your Party has failed you. It failed everyone it pretends to champion with its empty but loud rhetoric: the middle class, the minorities and the poor. It has conditioned you to see yourself not as proud Jews, but as underdogs only, indoctrinated to believe in the Democratic Party's deliverance, irrespective of its dismal track record.
What legacy are
you leaving your grandchildren? The legacy of the new but all-too-familiar
German Jews with heads in the sand? Or the legacy of the 21st Century American
Maccabees? Your clock is running out.
