Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
It’s no secret that Democrats like Ilhan Omar are openly anti-Semitic and actively seek to destroy Israel.
President Trump says Jews who support such Democrats are betraying their own people and the nation of Israel.
Paul Mirengoff, writing at Powerline, is upset the President would point this out. Trump is not a Jew. It’s “inappropriate” for him to speak out. He “slanders” Jews.
Mirengoff says there are lots of reason Jews might prefer Democrats over Trump, policy reasons or domestic issues. True, but irrelevant. If Candidate A says he will give you everything you ever dreamed of, for free, and also will destroy Israel, then voting for Candidate A means you are voting to destroy Israel.
Mirengoff is the perfect stereotype of the Dave Durenberger – Arne Carlson style of Republican. It’s no wonder conservatives were sold out time and again while liberals advanced their agenda.
Being nice is not more important than telling the truth.
I suspect Mirengoff (whom I’ve interviewed) is speaking more or less clinically about Jews’ reasons for preferring Democrats, but Joe is correct. It’s easy to “clinical” your way into despotism.
