We have always suspected that Obama disliked Jews. We have been afraid to say it because that would make us seem anti-black. It’s hard to move when we are chained to the political correctness of anti-prejudice. Emotional prejudice has become more horrific than outright violence. You can punch a black guy in the face and people will censure you for brutality. But use the N-word and you are sloshing around in the waves of fire in the Ninth circle of Hell.
In any event, from before his taking office the first time Obama has done nothing but indicate that he dislikes Jews. Not such a big sin, unless he acts on it. And he has. He has sniffed around the waft of Rashid Khalidi’s anti-Semitic odor; he has changed our political alliances in his Cairo speech; he has insulted Netanyahu at the White House; and now he is appointing Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense and John Brennan as head of the CIA.
There is a liberal part of me that is sleeping on the corner. He watches Hagel make abusive remarks about Jews and Brennan support Hezbollah. Both like Iran. Isn’t that dandy? Their positions and Obama’s sweet speeches are candy to our deaths.
When my extremely Jewish friend voted for Obama the first time around I told him that he is putting a gun to our heads. I am an agnostic. He is a serious Jew. But I care more than he does. His grandparents whispered in his ear from the death camps that Obama was a no-go. But he didn’t listen. I think I’ll have a talk with him this weekend. It’s too late. Still, truth will out.
The answer is blown in the wind of Obama’s appointments.
