WHY MOST JEWS SUPPORT THE HATE BILL
By Rev. Ted Pike
21 Jun 07
Many Christians and conservatives are baffled and dismayed that
the bulk of organized American Jewry not only supports the federal
anti-hate bill but is pressuring Pres. Bush not to veto it. (See,
Jews Pressure Bush to Sign Hate Bill) Why are "God's
chosen people," who claim to be co-inheritors of our "Judeo-Christian
tradition," aligning themselves with a pro-homosexual, Christian-persecuting,
Nahum Goldman, former president of the World Jewish Congress,
answers the question. He said, "Jews are liberals." American
Jews are so liberal that 87 percent of Jewish voters cast their ballot
for the Democrats who now dominate the U.S. House of Representatives.(1)
Such overwhelming Jewish support for the liberal agenda continues
a tradition begun in support of FDR's socialist policies in the 1930s.
The First Liberals
But Jewish support of liberalism goes much further back. The Zohar,
or Mystical/revolutionary Kabbalah, encourages Jews to believe they
are divinely chosen to "restore order" in a world brought
into confusion by Gentiles and Christians. (See, The
Jewish Kabbalah: Root of Midest Violence)
From the late medieval period to the mid-19th century, the Zohar,
even more than the Talmud, was the central religious authority to
most Jews of eastern Europe, especially in Poland.
During the "Enlightenment," the period of free thinking
and rationalism surrounding the French Revolution in 1789, many Jewish
Kabbalists took advantage of the new tolerance for Jews in Europe.
Intent on intrigue, they penetrated the capitals and even palaces
of western nations. These included Jewish charlatans such as St.
Germain, Cagliostro, Frank, and Faulk as well as the Gentile founder
of Illuminism, Weishaupt.
Such subversives, dedicated to overthrowing the existing order,
were tremendously assisted by the popularity of the greatest Jew
of the 18th century, Moses Mendelssohn. Illustrious German philosopher
and founder of reform Judaism Mendelssohn imparted to the formerly
despised and exiled race new dignity. Reform Judaism also reflected
the Zohar's mandate to "repair" the world by moral, social,
and political action. With onset of the 19th century, many Jewish
activists, inheritors of both the subversive and philosophical influences
of Kabbalah, believed that Jews had the obligation to become social
revolutionaries. Just as Moses and Aaron delivered the Hebrews from
Pharaoh's bondage, so Jews should help deliver the working masses
(proletariat) from the oppressions of capitalism. Out of such eastern
European Kabbalistic origins were born socialism, communism, and
that politically vexatious phenomenon of our times, 20th century
The Peddlers of Socialism
The Jewish Encyclopedias are proud that Jews played a predominant
role in leadership of all European revolutions in the 19th century.
They led the abortive 1905 revolution in Russia. Those Jews who escaped
exile in Siberia fled to the United States, particularly New York
City. There, for the next 11 years, they planned another attempt
to bring down the czar. The Jewish Encyclopedia (“Socialism,” p.
420) tells us:
The Jewish exodus from Russia drafted to the United States
large numbers of Socialists, mostly college and university students,
who must be reckoned among the pioneers of the socialist parties
in America. Their main field of activity was the ghetto. But the
masses of Jewish workmen and tradesmen who were educated by this
propaganda scattered throughout the country in pursuit of employment
or business opportunities and became the ‘pedlars of socialism’ among
their shop mates and neighbors.
Quoting from the Encyclopedia Judaica (“Communism,” p.
It is estimated that in the 1920’s as much as 15% of the
American Communist Party’s membership was Jewish, and the percentage
of Jews among the Party leadership was undoubtedly higher. . . .During
the Depression, Communist influence was again on the rise and could
claim many sympathizers and ‘fellow travelers’ among
the American Jewish academic youth and intelligentsia. . . . The
list of Jews who played a prominent role in the leadership and factional
infighting of the American Communist Party from its inception is
a long one. . . . Many American Jewish authors and intellectuals,
some of whom later publicly recanted, were active in editing Communist
publications and spreading party propaganda in the 1920’s,
1930’s and even later. . . .
The Judaica, in its article on Franklin D. Roosevelt,
lauds Roosevelt for inviting a veritable flood of Jews into his administration.
Roosevelt’s liberal policies
…endeared him to the Jewish community which shared with
him the overriding commitment to the welfare state. . . .In fact,
so pervasive was Jewish influence in Roosevelt’s experiment
to socialize America that the pejorative epithet “Jew Deal” became
popular among anti-Semitic elements.
The Old Left . . . And the New
Also clearly revealing the Jewish nature of the American communist
party were the numerous and highly publicized trials of American
communists following the Second World War and during the early 50’s.
In 1949 the 11 top American communists comprising the virtual politburo
of the party were arrested. Six were Jews.(2) Next to Gerhardt Eisler,
the highest ranking communist ever arrested in the United States,
and a Jew, these 11 were the most powerful agents of the communist
conspiracy in the western hemisphere. Subsequently, on June 21, 1951,
the second-string politburo were indicted by the Justice Department.
Of the 21 arrested, 14 were Jewish.(3) As the Judaica elaborates
in its article on the “New Left,” Jews have been active
in radical and communist activities clear up to the present.
Jews have been active in the United States in all radical movements,
Socialist and Communist, Old Left and New. While not particularly
prominent among the founders of the S.D.S. (such as Tom Hayden, Carl
Oglesby, and others), they became particularly prominent in later
phases of the history of the New Left. Mark Rudd, Jerry Rubin, Abby
Hoffman, and others who achieved national reputation may be mentioned;
in addition, on almost every major campus in which the New Left was
active, Jews were prominent in the leadership. Typically, they formed
between a third to more than half of the leadership and members.
. . .
In keeping with this admission, it is worth pointing out that most
liberal "civil liberties" groups, including such enduring
fountains of mischief as the ACLU, are found to contain a disproportionate
number of Jews. Little wonder that the ACLU begins to foam at the
mouth whenever it is reported that a school child has murmured the
name of Jesus Christ in a classroom prayer or when a nativity scene
is placed on public property. (See, ACLU
Top Heavy with Jews)
In reply to the question of why they are primarily liberals, most
Jews reply that, having suffered so long as victims of persecution,
they instinctively give themselves to causes which uplift the downtrodden.
One wonders, however, why it usually seems to be left
in behalf of the “downtrodden” which Jews rally toward.
These are the standard liberal causes such as the right of a woman
to an abortion, the rights of Sodomites to teach in public schools,
the right of atheists not to have to view a nativity scene, the rights
of radical women, blacks, and Latinos for affirmative action, the
right of elementary school children to the full details of sex education,
and so on. Curiously, the liberal Jewish community seemingly lacks
all conviction when it comes to a Christian’s right to pray
in a public school, a student's right to have creation as well as
evolution taught in public school, or even the most sacred right
of a baby to be born unimpeded by the abortionist’s forceps.
Instead, liberal Judaism predictably resists those Christian programs
on behalf of the downtrodden which build up Christian society and
champions those left-wing causes which, despite apparent high-mindedness,
tear it down.
The Synagogue Produces Liberalism
That a conspiracy exists in Talmudism is indicated not only by
Judaism’s most sacred writings, the Talmud and Zohar, but by
the pivotal role Jews have played in the greatest conspiracy of all
time, communism.(See, Jewish
Activists Created Communism) This does
not mean that Zinoviev or Kamenev or Jerry Rubin got his revolutionary
vision directly from the Talmud or Kabbalah. Instead, countless Jewish
activists for at least the past century have been propelled toward
revolution as a result of attitudes prevailing in the Jewish community
and synagogue. Those attitudes spring from Judaism's Kabbalistic
Jewish social activism is goaded forward by the Kabbalah's pantheistic
theology which teaches that "God," the "EnSof," is
utterly remote and cannot be depended on to intervene on behalf of
Israel. Instead, it is given to Jews, as semi-divine beings, to be
the practical agents of change and redemption. It is not even necessary
for the Jew to be religious in order to be a "good Jew." If
he wants to be religious and call the Creator "God," he
can; but if he is atheistic and wants to call Him matter or energy,
he may as justifiably do so. What is important is that, whether he
be an Orthodox rabbi or communist revolutionary, he is a Jew. The
Zohar teaches that Jews are holy, intrinsically redeeming beings,
regardless of affiliation. Like the nucleus of an atom, Jews and
Israel are essential to the very existence of this world. According
to Kabbalah, the Jew is infinitely more holy and precious than the
countless millions of "goyim" who exist beneath him. The
Talmud and Zohar perfectly embody the beliefs of the ancient rebels
of Korah who tried to depose Moses, saying, "All the congregation
are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is in their midst." (Num.
16:3) This is why hundreds of Jewish books and movies commemorate
the death of an alleged six million Jews in WW2 while ignoring those
of more than 150 million who died as a result of Jewish-inspired
communism. Only Jewish life is really precious. Only Jewish suffering
Having been long convinced that "God" (if He exists)
is not likely to intervene on behalf of Israel, Judaism instructs
young Jews that unless the destiny of Israel is preserved through
left-wing social action, Israel may not have a destiny at all. Such
activism is considered part of Israel’s revolutionary prophetic
tradition, which began with the prophets and social reformers of
the Old Testament.
As a case in point, an influential Reform Jew, Jacob Shiff, and
thousands of young Jewish revolutionaries saw the establishment of
communism in Russia in 1917 as an integral part of this Jewish mission.
Revolution, race, and religion freely mixed as they strove to create “a
just world” – a world in which Jewish genius could enjoy
the preeminence it deserves, free from persecution – and
free from Christianity. Without even enunciating it as such, the liberal
synagogue thus provides ample momentum for conspiracy. Idealistic
young Jews, upon the best advice of their leaders, are encouraged
to give themselves to the full spectrum of liberal causes. Tragically,
as such idealists inevitably move further and further left they find
that only the "revolutionary tradition" of Judaism continues
to have meaning for them.
As a result, the ACLU activists who defend pornographers under
the banner of "free speech" and the "atheist Jews" who
have given communism to the world are not misfits to Judaism, alienated
from the synagogue; they are largely the product of the synagogue.
Thus, however we want to define "conspiracy," the fact
remains that liberal Judaism continues its proven record of producing
a much higher percentage of "left wingers" than any other
1. In 2006, "Democrats received 87 percent of the national
Jewish vote for the House of Representatives, compared to just 12
percent for the GOP, according to data
collected by the National
Election Pool, a consortium of the television networks and the Associated
Press. That's up from similar polls in elections during the past
14 years, which put the Democratic vote in the 72-78 percent range
and Republicans in the 21-26 point range, depending on the year."
