Readers Write: Dems have gone ‘full bore’ anti-Semitic

In 1984, David S. Wyman, a professor of history at Amherst College, published The Abandonment of the Jews: America and the Holocaust 1941–1945, in which he documented the degree to which leftist icons like President Franklin Delano Roosevelt were presented with irrefutable evidence of Jewish genocide and did nothing to stop the mass murder of 6 million Jews in Hitler’s Europe.

Jewish leaders who were given an “audience” with FDR implored him, beseeched him to intervene in this unprecedented annihilation, and showed him graphic evidence of Jews being herded into asphyxiating cattle cars on their way to concentration camps, Jewish infants and children being ripped from the arms of their parents, Jews clawing at the walls of gas chambers until their last gasping deaths.

But FDR did nothing! If there is blood on the hands of any politician in the last thousand years, it is on the hands of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

And yet, leftist American Jews – to this day – celebrate his presidency.

Now we know why, thanks to a few honest historians, among them Rafael Medoff who wrote “The Jews Should Keep Quiet: Franklin D. Roosevelt,” Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, and the Holocaust and “The Deafening Silence: American Jewish Leaders and the Holocaust,” and Lucy Dawidowicz who wrote “The War Against the Jews: 1933-1945.”

Why? Because to leftists like FDR and his toadying adherents, nothing on earth took precedence over actualizing their political agenda, which was – and remains to this day -total government control over the immensely stupid masses, the deplorables, the people who don’t understand the imperative of handing over their destinies to the Regressive powers-that-be.

Today, less than three months from a presidential election, the Democrat Party – long hailed as a stalwart friend of Israel and the Jewish people – has gone full-bore anti-Semitic. Writers Jeff Ballabon and Bruce Abramson say that Biden’s 2020 presidential platform treats “Jews and Israel as pariahs, uniquely worthy of discriminatory treatment.  It makes a mockery of Israel as a sovereign state and an American ally. It directly aligns the Biden campaign — and the entire Party — with Israel’s mortal enemies.”

Yoo Hoo, Jewish Democrats, it is long overdue for you to wake up and smell the now-contaminated coffee.

A vote for Joe Biden is a full-on endorsement of the poisonous Jew-hatred that has commandeered the Democrat Party and told you – meaning all Jews, including left-wingers – that they hate you personally and they hate Israel so much that they share the identical mission of the mullahs in Iran to literally exterminate the only Jewish state in existence. Your choice.
