American Jews and the Trump Administration

An aspect of the election result is the hysterical reaction by liberal ‎segments of the Jewish community, which can be seen as an act of infamy.

After the election of perhaps the most pro-Israel U.S. administration in history, American Jews seem to have lost the plot. When Donald Trump was elected president of the U.S., many Jews sat shiva to mourn Hillary Clinton’s defeat as if it was a death in the family, making religion out of politics. A number of Conservative and Reform synagogues held special ‎mourning services to bewail the advent of fascism in America. One prominent Conservative ‎rabbi in New York compared the Trump victory to the rise of ‎Nazism prior to the Holocaust.‎ The essence of politics is persuasion; not hysterics.

    Fortunately, my rabbi and congregation members know better.

    50% of North American Jews essentially identify as atheists.
    I no-longer care who get denounced as an antisemite anymore as it’s no different than being called a racist, fascist, sexist, or whatever.
    It’s what that particular ethnic group calls people when they don’t like your politics.
    It’s a smear against conservative gentiles and it’s use should always be denounced.

    Isn’t Donald Trump one of the most pro Israel presidents in decades? I live in Australia and I know Trump is pro Israel. Are Americans not listening?

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      North American Jews are about 80% leftists. That’s their real religion. Their level of caring about Israel is at best minimal, unless they can use it to make political hay.
      No mention that one of his daughters converted to Judaism.
      It’s all just a smear and all real Americans know it.

        OK. As an Australian I am amazed at the level of anti Trump material coming from the Australian media. It has been quite noticeable how most of the reporters are desperately trying to get rid of Trump by writing daily “anti Trump” propaganda. The guy was voted in. I say give him a chance to do what he says he will do.

    Mainstream Jews dont see this Grupes as Jews at all.

    The so called Liberal and Conservative “Jews” are as Jewish as the Pope.
    They belong to the so called Reform Movement what became a Deform Movement,
    it Deformes Judaism to an unrecognisable Anachronism, with no conection
    to Judaism whatsoever.

    Presenting them as Jewish here is Fake News about Fake Jews.

      ‘No true Scotsman’ then?
      I’d call 80% of any population group doing the same thing or having the same general beliefs pretty darned mainstream and far from heretical.

      • vwVwwVwv

        i have no idea about scotsman but reform jews dont have the same belive,
        don’t pray in the same language, even don’t pray together or intermarry
        with mainstream jews. they would like but mainstream jews don’t
        accept them. if reform “judaism” would be jewish than
        you could call christians reform “jews” to
        and they are not nor reform
        “jews”.

        so i appreciate your high skills in Scotsmanism but you have no idea of Judaism.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Nice try, but not once did I bring up reform Jews.
          80% of all Jews vote left. ALL Jews, did you catch that part?
          Unless your explanation is that 80% of Jews are now reform Jews, I’m not buying it that this is just the reform crowd acting out.

          The ‘no true Scotsman’ reference is toward your logical fallacy that this story was “fake news about fake Jews”. Don’t scorn me due to your public display of ignorance.

          • vwVwwVwv

            try? what do you think is going on here?

            Your numbers are from J-Street to provoke exactly your stuff.
            no the Antisemitic JStreet talked about 70% your 80%
            are your fakes and it looks like out of bad intent.

            No jew will tell YOU how he voted
            and this out of good reason.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Jewish support of Trump was 19%.
            I win!

          • vwVwwVwv

            how do you want to know, your pollsters told us trump will loose the elections

            but if you want to win, Las Vegas would be the better address then BCF
            and no you don’t win, your scotsman don’t fit as lots of
            people copy judaism and claim it,
            no on copies scots, whom
            i actually like, especially for the woman and the whisky.

    I think for Jews communism is more important than theology.

    If you read up about the short lived Bavarian Soviet government of 1919, three quarters of the instigators and senior leaders were Jews.
