The old saw says that Jews earn like Episcopalians but vote like Puerto Ricans. And that when voting liberal, they look for an ethnically familiar face to make them feel comfortable.
That’s why Hillary pretended to have Jewish roots when she was running for Senate from New York (in reality, the only Jew she knew in childhood was the second husband of her non-Jewish maternal grandmother). That’s why John Kerry harped on the fact that his daddy was Jewish (although his family had converted to Roman Catholicism two generations before).
And that’s why every Democrat administration goes out of its way to show that it is chock full of liberal Jews. Rahm Emanuel’s presence in the White House was somehow supposed to compensate for the fact that the Obama Administration is rabidly anti-Israel (despite the protestations of Obama shill Jeffrey Goldberg). Madeleine Albright’s anti-Israel bias was supposed to be alleviated by her Jewish ancestry, although she didn’t give a damn about Judaism.
The active anti-Jewishness from the majority of American Jews allows President Obama to staff up with Jews who betray Jewishness at every turn. First there was Emanuel, who spent his time threatening groups like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), telling them that if they didn’t push Israel to make concessions, Obama would let Iran go nuclear.
