The Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren Edition
VP Joe Biden colorfully slandered Jews yesterday with an offensive medieval stereotype.
“My son as attorney general, the year in Iraq, came back and that’s one of the things that he finds is, was most in need, when he was over there in Iraq for a year, people would come to him and talk about what was happening at home, in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being, I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas.”
The reference is from Shakespeare’s play “The Merchant of Venice,” where the evil Jewish moneylender literally required a pound of flesh from someone who didn’t repay their loan. It has long been considered a vile and offensive term.
Then it was Bill Clinton’s turn, bashing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Iowa.
Bill Clinton was recorded bashing Bibi Netanyahu, agreeing that the prime minister was “not the man” to make peace with Palestinians — a position at odds with his wife’s pro-Israel stance, a new report said Monday.
Bubba thought he wasn’t being recorded. So, um, then this is what he really thinks, right?
Good to know.
At least Hillary won’t have to worry about Elizabeth Warren trampling on her purported pro-Israel turf. Fauxcahontas told a Holocaust survivor that it’s “fair” to compare Israel’s actions to a Nazi atrocity.
“Eva Moseley, I’m not a student, I’m not an alumnae, but was in faculty life. I was also a Holocaust refugee and I’m extremely concerned that Jews don’t do to another people what was done to them,” said the activist.
“I think that’s fair,” Senator Warren responded.
Yes, because protecting your citizens from bombs and rockets is exactly like rounding up Jews and shoving them into ovens, or something.
The attitudes of these top Democrats is sickening.
The casual bigotry on display here is endemic of a wider problem. Because if lots of people, including many in the media, didn’t share these reprehensible beliefs, Democrats wouldn’t be so quick to toss them around. Obviously they presume they’re among friends, fellow travelers who nod approvingly at rampant anti-Semitism.
And their odious prejudice is contagious.
This fall NYC’s Metropolitan Opera will present “The Death of Klinghoffer,” a play that is filled with ugly, anti-Semitic propaganda lies that romanticize the Palestinian cause. The fact that an innocent, disabled Jewish man was thrown to his death from a cruise ship? Who cares, he was probably a Shylock anyway.
