DENVER, August 13, 2013 — With one brief inappropriate interaction, disgraced former congressman and current New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner became just another boring stereotype. Sadly, Weiner is just a typical liberal Jew.
Forget his sexting and tweeting to barely legal women. This is not about naked pictures of his appendage. It is about the raw nakedness of his character. Most Jews, even liberal ones, are not sending x-rated “selfies” over the internet. However, far too many liberal Jews are engaging in behavior toward innocent strangers that is far more harmful and destructive to society.
Reporter Scott Conroy detailed one hour of life on the campaign trail with Weiner. One particular exchange with a potential voter was so noxious it should make the skin crawl.
Weiner noticed that the man had an Israeli flag in his home, and asked the man if he was Israeli. The man replied that he was a Christian support of Israel, and believed Israel would play a central role in the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Weiner then asked the man a question that displayed a level of ignorance and religious bigotry that would be shocking if it were not typical among Jewish liberals.
“But don’t you also believe that we have to be wiped out before the Messiah can return?”
The man replied “no.”
This is the heart, the very essence of what plagues Jewish liberalism. For those wondering why so many Jews are politically liberal, it is due to an irrational fear and hatred of Christianity.
Liberal Jews see religious Christians as an existential threat to Jewish survival.
On the surface, liberal Jews will claim that social issues are what drive their voting patterns. Liberal Jewish women obsess over their pro-choice position on abortion. Liberal Jewish men also focus on radical environmentalism and gay rights.
Yet these social issues have nothing to do with Judaism. Nothing in the Torah (Old Testament) advocates an abortion position in either direction. As for homosexuality, the Bible certainly does not endorse it. Being good stewards of the Earth certainly does not mandate a wild-eyed fanaticism about climate change or cap-and-trade legislation.
What these issues have in common is that religious Christians by and large take one viewpoint, and liberal Jews feel obligated to reflexively take the opposing position. It all comes down to the notion that Christians are evil, therefore anything and everything they believe is evil. Holding the opposite viewpoint must be noble and good.
Taken to this extreme, Jewish liberals are not content just to see Christians as political opponents. Christians want to wipe Jews off the map, and are therefore enemies who must be stopped.
Christians have every right to be perplexed by this train of thought, since it is idiocy. Christianity in its truest form teaches values such as loving thy neighbor, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and sheltering the homeless.
The Romans did kill the Jews and destroy the Second Holy Temple, but this was not because of Christianity. The Romans were pagans, and they killed everybody who opposed them, without any discrimination.
There was a time when Christians specifically forced Jews to convert to Christianity or be killed. That was a millennium ago, and society has changed in the last 1,000 years.
Liberals are constantly stating that the entire religion of Islam should not be blamed for a select few Muslims who become radicalized. Yet these same liberals, many of them Jewish, apply the totally unfair broad brush standard to indict all Christians.
Anthony Weiner is married to a Muslim. He would have every right to be offended if somebody asked his wife, Huma Abedin, if she believed as a Muslim that all Jews should be killed. Yet Weiner had no problem asking the same obscene and outrageous question of a religious Christian.
Evangelical Christians are not spending their days trying to murder Jews. They love and respect the People of the Book. It is high time that liberal Jews drop their own prejudices and return that respect.
Like many typical liberal Jews, Anthony Weiner has plenty of growing up to do. Even with his clothing on, he has a long way to go before becoming a man worthy of representing a city as culturally diverse and pluralistic as New York.
