Suicide as a Jewish Value

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Growing Anti-Semitism is a small price to pay for the Liberal values of having people like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz sitting in Congress instead of selling tie-dyed t-shirts and hand-painted seashell bongs in a flea market. And like all the wages of liberalism, the price for it isn’t paid by the people on top, but by those at the bottom. Those Jews living next to the 44 percent in New York City or on farms in the West Bank within firing range of their Palestinian Muslim peace partners. The Jews whom Sanger and Schultz consider “unfit”.

There is a fundamental gap between the interests of those Jews and those of a liberal elite who claim that their Liberal values are our Jewish values. The values of the elite are linked to power while those of the population are linked to survival. The power of Liberal Jewish elites is inextricably linked to the decimation of Jewish populations, whether in the United States, Europe or Israel.

Jews who have grown up within the bubble of Liberal Jewish values are repeatedly asked to choose between their own interests, their physical, social and economic welfare, and the values that have been presented to them as Jewish values. They are encouraged to believe that betraying their own interests is a noble act of self-sacrifice for the greater good.

This is the same false choice between interests and values, between the low ground of survival and the high ground of moral superiority, that the left subjects all Americans and Europeans to on a regular basis. What all the lecturers on the theme of the moral high ground and the new value system have forgotten to mention is that a value system that is incapable of perpetuating itself is of very little use to anyone. It isn’t even any good as an act of martyrdom because martyrs are remembered by the people who share their beliefs.

Martyrs that live on die for a faith, not for the extinction of a faith. And that is what Liberal Jewish values are. The extinction of a faith and a people in the name of a better faith in liberalism and a better people in the form of a multicultural rainbow of other people who have children, but still vote Democratic, because their religious values have not yet been submerged within a liberal identity.

The paradox of the multicultural alliance is that the political survival of the narrow wedge of liberals at the top depends on a larger wedge of non-liberals who vote for them but don’t share their values. If the minority communities adopted the full panoply of liberal values, they would be on the same path to extinction as the people for whom they have been taught to pull the lever on Election Day.

That is what makes the multicultural alliance into a frighteningly unstable beast which is always at risk of either breaking left or breaking right and must be constantly replenished through fresh supplies of immigrants who are still economically liberal and socially conservative enough to keep the system going.

Jewish Liberals are stuck in a particularly hellish version of this paradox preaching an extinction based value system that is doomed to lose the race to traditionalists. And the only way out is to try and suborn and break down the values of Jewish traditionalists more aggressively in order to gain fresh recruits for their zombie army of the living dead.

Margaret Sanger at least understood that, ” the unbalance between the birth rate of the “unfit” and the “fit”… can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes”. Birth control teaching without eugenics would never be enough, but the age when the government can mandate a One Child Policy is not yet here. And even if it did arrive, it would still lead to a higher birth rate for couples in traditional marriages.

The race between traditional Jewish values and Liberal Jewish values must always end in the same way over and over again. Suicide can never become a Jewish value unless it is universalized and it can never be universalized until every traditional group is broken down. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has already lost and she probably knows it. If she doesn’t, the Jewish Federations who are busy typing up the survey results certainly do. And while that will lead them to redirect more money to groups such as Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and Uri L’Tzedek which act as leftist outposts of the war on traditional Judaism– that too is another race they cannot win.

    Brilliantly written piece.

    Well said Daniel. The time is long past for euphemism and duplicitous relativism i.e. 'multicultural ', 'liberal' and 'tolerance' – all now used in common parlance as deliberate distortions of the English language – similar methinks to the language of the Pigs in Orwell's great 'Animal Farm'.

  3. Allis Kisl says:

    clarity and honesty is what we need…
    I 'd also say that there is a strong need to sacrifice politeness for that honesty..

    Listen to Gineen Bresso, as she explains to everyone in South Florida why DWS MUST GO! Vote GINEEN BRESSO for Congress on August 14th and help take our great nation back!

  5. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Very few people are aware of the fact that Margaret Sanger established Planned Parenthood as a means of applying eugenics (the movement started in the U.S. and was exported to Germany) to blacks and Jews and Italians. While Jewish law requires an abortion to save the life of the mother, it is not a Jewish value! When thinking about all the babies and children who were slaughtered in the Shoah, it is not a Jewish interest to support it. Here in Israel, the organization Efrat tries to save as many babies as possible from being aborted by providing money and clothes and furniture to the mother whose only reason for seeking an abortion is economic.
