Ben Shapiro Gets It

I am outsourcing my column today because a fellow Republican Jew wrote something absolutely brilliant that must be read.

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Ben Shapiro personally.

While he is so conservative that he makes me look like a liberal, I share his no holds barred method of communication. I met him at UCLA Hillel and enjoyed his blunt nature.

I have said on many occasions that liberal Jews need cranial-glutial extraction surgery. He shares this belief with less tactlessness.

Ben is only 25 years old, yet has already authored three books. He is a rising star in young conservative circles, and I look forward to him achieving success in whatever he does.

Judaism has been hijacked by liberalism. It has infected Jewish professors on campuses, led to a culture of filth in Hollywood, and poisoned many synagogues that long ago replaced the Torah with Earth goddess Gaea and other leftist nonsense.

With that, I present the hard hitting body blow of reality that is Ben Shapiro.

“Dear American Jews,

I write to you as a charter member of the  tribe. I’m not only Jewish, I’m religious. I’m married to an Israeli girl  (she’ll receive her citizenship next year and she is a proud soon-to-be  American). I go to synagogue regularly, keep kosher, keep the Sabbath.

American Jews, I have one request of you: please pull your heads  out of your posteriors.

I mean that in all sincerity. Your  continued support for Democrats and an administration that is openly  anti-Semitic is a disgrace. Your embrace of a party that seeks to hamstring  Israel in the name of a wholly fictitious Middle East peace process is  contemptible. Your loyalty to a president who consistently sides with  Palestinian and Iranian mass murder-supporters  is disgusting.

Your backing of a man who has spent his life  surrounding himself with the worst anti-Semites America has to offer —  Jeremiah Wright, Rashid Khalidi (former Palestinian terrorist spokesman),  Louis Farrakhan (“I don’t like the way  [Jews] leech on us”), Samantha Power,  Robert Malley, to name a few — is nothing short of reprehensible. Rahm  Emanuel’s presence in the Obama cabinet doesn’t  ameliorate Obama’s  anti-Semitism — it just provides it convenient cover.
Al Sharpton wrongly  called Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell “house negroes”; Emanuel is  a kapo.

Even as you continue to buttress a president who seeks the  destruction of your co-religionists, you demonstrate your myopia by rejecting  the tea party movement and evangelical Christian Israel-supporters. The tea  party movement is your ally for three important reasons.

First, it supports  capitalism against the forces of socialism — and capitalism keeps America  strong
enough to provide Israel with a hand against its evil adversaries.

Second,  American Jews are, by far, the highest-earning religious group in the  United States — the tea party fights for your right to keep your money.

Third, the tea party stands against government overreach — and in an era  when government overreach promotes anti-religious secularism, Jews must  stand with the tea party.

Your rejection of evangelical  Christians is even more idiotic. Evangelical Christians are the only major  voting bloc preventing President Obama from breaking ties with Israel. When  Janet Porter, an evangelical Florida talk show host, heard about Obama’s  anti-Israel tyranny, she responded by asking her listeners to buy dozens of  yellow roses to send to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office as a show  of support.

The price per dozen:

$19.48, in honor of the year of Israel’s  founding (1948). Over 14,000 flowers were delivered. Meanwhile, Adm. James  Jones, Obama’s national security adviser and the man who brought  Jew-hater Zbigniew Brzezinski into Obama’s inner circle, was busy telling  anti-Semitic jokes before the Washington Institute for Near East  Policy.

‘But they want to convert us!’ many American Jews shout.  Not all Christians do. But for the rest — so what? Would you sacrifice the  support of millions of good-hearted Christians because they want to discuss  Jesus with you? If your own belief system is so fragile, the weakness is  yours, not theirs. While you expend energy whining about Jehovah’s Witnesses  who show up at your door with a Bible, Obama supports radical Muslims who  would show up at your door with a gun — or, as in the case of Daniel Pearl,  a butcher’s knife.

Now, I understand, American Jews, that most  of you don’t care about Israel. I understand that you’re more concerned  about a woman’s unconditional right to abort her unborn child (which Judaism  rejects) than you are about Israel.

Fine. Understand that you have removed  yourself from the vast river of Jewish history in favor of a chimerical  morality that values libertinism over liberty.

I understand that  many of you — all of you above age 70 — still think FDR is alive. He isn’t,  but Jimmy Carter is. I understand that some of you still think that  conservatives and Republicans are the same folks they were during the 1950s,  when they banned you from country clubs. They aren’t.

The simple  fact is this: There is only one mainstream political ideology in this country  that asks you to check your principles and cultural history at the door in  the name of the greater good — leftism, the same ideology that virtually  exterminated Judaism in Russia and Europe . While the left exploits your  adherence to bagel-and-lox Judaism by appealing to your watered-down and  perverted ‘tikkun olam’ sensibilities, you are enabling your own destruction.

The same people who urge you to reach out to terrorists will be the first to sacrifice you to those terrorists’ tender mercies. The same people who urge you to worry about same-sex marriage rather than religious freedom will  be the first to take your religious freedoms away.

I love you,  my brothers and sisters. That’s why I’m writing to you.

Time is running  out; the clock is winding down. Pick a  side.”

Amen Ben! Amen.

  1. Well, I’ll say this for the young fella – he’s definitely no more than 25 years old.

    His lack of life experience, the complexity of the issues he attempts to address, and knowledge of history is trikingly obvious.

    Leftism has neevr been a serious problem for the Jews. Rightism – and in particular Christian Nationalist Rightism most certainly has. In fact, 6,000,000 Jews were murdered in the 1930’s and 40’s by Christian Nationalists.

    Evangelical Christians may be your “friends” for now, a very recent phenomenon, but they hate and despise Judaism and long for the day when all the Jews are ingloriously “left behind” to face doom.

    Even the common interest of the “defense of Israel” is an illusion. These Christians don;t care about Israel, only that Israel united Judea and Samara and builds a new Temple. These are not thing Israel realistically wants. If Israel were to attempt to expand to the desired proportions of these Christians, it would provoke WWIII in the Middle East, a war that would be cataclysmic to all involoved.

    This insipid (another clue as to the age of the auther) guiklt by association of Obama is truly misplaced as well. The Democrats are populated by many “pro-Israel” (I don’t know of any “anti-Israel) Jews and gentiles alike. There is all of ONE Republican Jew in the House. ONE. So, either Ben Shapiro thinks all these educated, professional, erudite, worldly and wise people are idiots, or he’s some kind of genius.

    So, what does Mr. Shapiro think? Most Jews are just idiotic suckers played by the Democratic party? Only Ben (and Eric Cantor) have a clue in the world what Judaism is really about and what poltiical philosophies best represent it governmentally? Really?

    Youth is best spent having fun. Let’s hear from him when he grows up.

    Okay, I’ll try again

  3. Micky 2 says:

    I’ give up.
    I’m not going to post 30 three word comments

  4. Toma says:

    Ben is 25 therefore he can’t think and discern. How trite?


  5. It’s not that. It’s just that his age is showing. Actually, by his age, I was already long past thinking the way he does – tribal, selfish, libertarian.


  6. Micky 2 says:

    “I was already long past thinking the way he does ”

    Today you think terrorists are unruly children

  7. I never said that. I made an analogy once, using “unruly children.” I’d hoped that it was understood that it was an analogy. I mean, I would think that anyone with a maturity level over 25 would have gotten that. ;)

    I’m not an ageist. Let me just put it this way: You know how sometimes you meet a young person and you say, “Hey, that kid is really mature! He acts 10, 20 years past his age!” Well, I wouldn’t say that about this young man. ;)

    Jersey attacks the author’s maturity. Just because you disagree with his political analysis you try to hit what you think is his weak spot — his age.
    As an older person I have to tell you I agree with Ben. Why do leftists think they are smarter and superior? In the real world I see no evidence of it. You sound condescending. But I know you will not be deterred. Leftism is a mental illness.

  9. justbehuman says:

    And I want to add that these evangelicals whom you say (as though you know or are interested in the truth) don’t care about Israel contribute financially to the Jewish State and visit there as tourists to give their economic support. They incorporate Jewish rituals and holidays like Succoth into their church calendar because they want to be closer to the Hebrew culture which they recognize brought forth their own religion. Your tired, old lefty arguments and distortions are transparent. Why don’t you go over to the Huffington Post where you can agree with all those people who have your outlook. The Jewish community is in denial and you are just one of the enablers. You sound like a total hack. Pathetic.
