Michele Bachmann: The Liberal Elite’s Next ‘Jew’


When Sarah Palin burst upon the national scene and the liberal media attempted to destroy her, I observed on my blog, Seraphic Secret, that she was being transformed into a hated Jew.

Each rhetorical bombardment against her was and is reminiscent of the Arab strategy to demonize Jews and Israel.

The attacks on Palin were and are blood libels.

The latest ghoulish assault – liberalism is socialism as lynch mob – on her was the mob frenzy to analyze some 24,000 Palin e-mails from her tenure as Alaska’s governor.

When Obama’s twenty-year discipleship to Jew-hater Jeremiah Wright was finally revealed, the liberal media dismissed this disgusting alliance as nothing more than guilt by association. We wonder if liberals would have the same attitude if it were revealed that a Republican presidential candidate attended KKK meetings for twenty years. We sort of doubt it.

Wright’s church is the black ideological mirror of the KKK. But for the liberal media the Obama/Wright man-crush was of zero interest. And there certainly was no clamor to turn up, let alone comb through, any juicy correspondence or cyber trail Obama may have left behind as a state legislator and U.S. senator.

Much to the chagrin of the propagandists who masquerade as journalists, the mountains of e-mail reveal Palin as a hard-working, effective public servant – transparent, humorous, distrustful of oil companies and willing to take on the corrupt Republican Party elite of Alaska.

Nevertheless, the blood libels will continue because liberals simply cannot bear the notion that a smart, beautiful and independent woman can be ideologically conservative.

But there are two issues that make Sarah Palin a particular object of liberal scorn:

1. Palin’s support and love of Israel is profound. Hence she was and is accused of anti-Semitism. The foul charge makes no sense. But, hey, cognitive dissonance is the hallmark of leftist/progressive/liberal thought.

(Note: I’m a friend of the Israeli tour guide who accompanied Palin during her recent trip to Israel. This guide has only good things to say about Palin and her family.)

2. Palin opposes abortion. In fact, she lives this philosophy, choosing to give birth to a Down syndrome baby, refusing to view her child as an inconvenience to be murdered in the womb.

To a certain strain of hard-core liberal, this is just as bad – maybe worse – than her love of Israel. Abortion is sacrosanct to the liberal mind, the fetus viewed as an annoying blister to be lanced.

Michele Bachmann, the Republican congresswoman from Minnesota and newly announced presidential candidate, is the liberal media’s next “Jew.”

In the GOP debate last week, Bachmann dazzled. She was incisive, articulate and knowledgeable. Clearly, she was enjoying herself. A majority of Americans want their politicians to be optimistic. Obama comes across as Jimmy Carter squared: petulant, dour, angry, resigned to an America mired in a future of diminishing returns.

Like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann is beautiful and glamorous, but not so glamorous that she threatens other women. Nor is she so sexy that she intimidates men.

She dresses like a lady, modest but fashionable.

I’ve never seen her in a pants suit.

And she actually knows stuff.

Unlike Obama, who seems to fashion himself a philosopher king – practical knowledge scorned – Bachmann is a skilled tax attorney and an entrepreneur.

It should come as no surprise that as a pious Christian, Bachmann, like Palin, is a huge supporter of Israel. My wife and I heard Bachmann at a Republican Jewish Coalition function last year and it was like listening to Golda Meir.

But here’s the main reason you can bet your bottom dollar the liberal lynch mob will go after Bachmann with jihadist fervor:

Bachmann and her husband have raised five biological children. That’s way too many. Liberals cap families at 2.0 offspring. Anything more is so quaint and, well, churchy – and crowds the planet to boot.

Bachmann and her husband also raised 23 foster children.

This, to the liberal mind, is unforgivable.

Why?

Because Michele Bachmann lives her conservative ideology by refusing to allow government to raise unwanted children.

Parents who adopt children or take in and raise foster children are society’s greatest heroes. They repair the world.

And for this, Michele Bachmann will become an object of hate – a “Jew” to the jackals of the left.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King. The nusach of the tefillah, referring to Rosh Hashanah as “a remembrance of the first day” (of Creation), implies a certain dimension of divine kingship operating at the time of Creation and replicated every […]

With the debate over gun control at fever pitch following the atrocity in Newtown, Connecticut, I thought readers of The Jewish Press would find the following account of my experience during the Los Angeles riots of 1992 both timely and interesting.

When Sarah Palin burst upon the national scene and the liberal media attempted to destroy her, I observed on my blog, Seraphic Secret, that she was being transformed into a hated Jew.

Each rhetorical bombardment against her was and is reminiscent of the Arab strategy to demonize Jews and Israel.

True genius is a rare commodity.

Five years ago, 26-year-old Moshe Hammer, z”l, a Lubavitch artist who frequently worked through the night, stepped outside for a walk in Los Angeles, to clear his head and recharge his creative batteries. As was his custom, Moshe rambled miles from his apartment in the Fairfax district.

There is no question in my mind that so-called anti-Zionism serves as a fig leaf for Jew-hatred.

There is no other explanation.

I know of no other country whose legitimacy is as relentlessly questioned and undermined as is Israel’s. You would think that those who espouse the love of human rights and rejection of violence and government oppression would attack, with proper fury, countries like Congo, Sudan, Jordan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Cuba, Libya, Dubai, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Venezuela, and of course the most repressive country on the planet, North Korea.

Islamo-Nazis came to Mumbai, and besides attacking major hotels, centers of commerce, and tourist attractions, they went Jew-hunting.

Well, we just marked the anniversary of the 9/11 atrocities and who pops out of his Caliphite Cave?

Yup, Osama bin Laden.

Until 1967, Gaza was part of Egypt. The Arabs who lived in Gaza considered themselves – get this – Egyptians. The Muslim Brotherhood was active and quite popular in Gaza – and outlawed by the Egyptian government.
