Comrade Cakes, a hat owner, gave me permission to repost her FB message from two days ago.
It was inspired by this left-right tweet exchange.
Dear Jewish friends (and those who care about Jews),
This is long,
but very important to read. I know I posted this last night, but I
only realized this am the true significance of this tweet and response,
and I feel compelled to share my observations. It represents the state
of American Jewry today. One one hand, here is a tweet from Silverman,
who likes to declare her "Judaism" when it is politically or comically
expedient for her to do so. She throws her Jewish identity
out to audiences in order 'normalize' her truly unJewish beliefs like
justifying the murder of babies for body parts research (is this in the
Torah or the Talmud? Does Judaism love life or justify murder?) or her
leftist ideology that favors oppression of any group - religious, race,
ideological - by big government of ANY kind PROVEN throughout history,
that the more government control, the more tragedy for those governed
and for Jews especially. Then there is the response to her tweet made by
a young Jewish man who gets it. He lives his Judaism as opposed to just
using it as a qualifier to make his point seem valid because a Jew made
Unfortunately today, there are more of the American Jewry like
Silverman rather than Ben and it is KILLING the Jewish community. It is
NOT the lack of tushies in the seats of synagogues on Friday nights or
Saturday mornings, it is the pervasive leftism that is KILLING us. It is
the declaration of being Jewish ( also referred to as having kishkes)
as opposed to living under Jewish commandments (you know the ten) that
is causing the slow suicide of Jews. It is this statist ideology
disguised as charity and doing good (a Jewish teaching) that has
infected our community like a fatal disease. BUT, government 'charity'
is fake. It does not truly help the people it purports to help. It
enslaves them. It creates the ability for decent people to excuse the
death of innocents. It redefines morals. It creates oppression of one
group in order to do good for another. It relieves the individual of
doing charitable things simply because they support govt charity to do it
for them. It is not a debatable point, it is fact, proven over and over
again since the beginning of time.
The question is, will those
like Ben, the resistance if you will, grow in number and voice, or will
those like Silverman, the disease, take over the American Jewish body
and kill it once and for all?
