20 August 2008 - Another reason why I'm not a Democrat

Back in 2000-2001, many of my fellow Jews on the left began to feel profoundly uncomfortable about the antisemitism that leapt to the fore after the start of the second intifadaand again after 9/11.

It seemed to be mostly a fringe phenomenon, but there was always the worry that some of the crazy conspiracy theories and such would move into the mainstream.

That appears to have happened now, with the Democratic National Committee's attack on Republican Congressman Eric Cantor of Virginia, a potential McCain Vice-Presidential pick. The DNC's hit job mentions Cantor's religion in nearly every paragraph.

Read it for yourself here.

Or, once the DNC takes the page down, visit Dan MacLaughlin's excellent post (with screenshot) here.

I'm disgusted but not surprised. I'm sure you have seen the anti-Semitic diaries on the section of barack obama's website which allows individuals to post blogs. All over the Internet from DailyKos to the Washington Post one finds anti-Semitism and Obama support linked together.

It's really creepy.

Palin is a Jewish name. Is Sarah Palin Jewish? Probably not. What a trump card to Biden with thirty six years of contradiction laden experience in Washington.
Will Biden be able to contain himself and mind his tongue as Palin rakes his Washington insider record over the coals in the VP debate? Not only does McCain regain the initiative with independents, she will also appeal to women, 24% whom are still undecided. And she is a conservationist for drilling, thus a living refutation of Pelosi and congressional democrats who have equivocated on urgent drilling which 72% of Americans support. If she is the choice it will be because here is the one person who does the most for McCain's electability. Talk about a smart politician.
