U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., was quoted as saying the following just prior to the congressional run-off to replace Anthony Weiner, whose New York City-based seat was eventually won by a non-Jewish candidate last week:
“There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party…quite frankly, for economic reasons. They feel they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.”
Let’s analyze this comment from a Jewish congressman. Waxman is a far-left radical and a supporter of each and every program and foreign policy initiative presented by the Obama administration. His Jewish constituency is the second-highest in the country at 190,000. It’s logical to assume he is in the same danger as David Welprin, an Orthodox Jewish Democrat who was handily defeated by non-Jewish Republican Bob Turner in the runoff for Weiner’s seat. Forget about Weiner, Welprin or any political party aspect of this election. They are all meaningless. The people came out against Obama and his vitriolic anti-Israel stand.
Waxman wants to make it appear that Jews had no thought of Israel and its horrific treatment by Obama when they touched the screen to vote for a Republican. Waxman is trying to stiff-arm the Jewish concern for Israel until after the 2012 elections, when he himself is in danger of being forced to enter the workplace for the first time since he left law school. For him, that’s a scary proposition. But why in the world did he accuse the Jews of voting “to protect their wealth”? Isn’t that what people of all faiths do? So why single out Jews? Why stoke up the fires of the age-old Jew-hating mantra of associating Jews with the hoarding of wealth?
Because his radical left-leaning psyche controls his brain and his mouth, Waxman may use his supposed “Jewishness” as a vote getter, but his concern for “his people’ is nil. To him, they are only fodder for the election process. He is not outraged by the anti-Israel policies of Obama. He doesn’t stand up in the halls of Congress and dispute Obama’s winks and nods to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Libya. He is silent about the hundreds of Palestinian missiles launched into Israel. To my knowledge, he has never visited Israel. Waxman has long since relinquished any umbilical Jewishness he may have been born with and substituted it with an animosity for anyone (but himself) who harbors any concern for financial stability, in one’s home or for the nation. Never having earned a paycheck, as so many of us have, he lacks the natural instinct for preparing for one’s family future by earning, spending frugally and saving. The New York City tsunami surely will sweep over the country and reach the West Coast by next November. I hope.
