This Politico article is a great example of why I don’t believe in Jewish conspiracy theories.
A “conspiracy” is a secret plot to do something harmful. There is nothing secretive though about how Jewish billionaires like Sheldon Adelson write huge checks to corrupt the political process on behalf of their co-ethnics in Israel. The bribery is always done out in the open.
Even though there is only one Jewish Republican in Congress and the GOP wins only 33 percent of the Jewish vote (Jews are 2 percent of the American population), every single Republican in Congress is slavishly “pro-Israel” because of Jewish money:
“The Republican Jewish Coalition — facing the loss of its leading champion and tensions within the GOP — is planning an aggressive push in 2015 to enforce the hawkish pro-Israel consensus it helped build within the party over the past two decades.
Efforts to appeal to Jews may seem disproportionate to the size of the Jewish population, which constitutes about 2 percent of the American electorate (albeit a greater percentage in key swing states including Florida and Ohio). But their influence transcends their numbers, Ginsberg said. “Jews are important in the electoral process both because of activism and because of money,” he said. “In fundraising and in bundling they have influence beyond their numbers and even beyond their money.”
Note: A week ago, I checked GOP.com to see if the RNC had issued its usual statement that celebrates Kwanzaa. Instead, I found three press releases celebrating Hanukkah, Yom Kippur, and Rosh Hashanah. There was no press release to celebrate Christmas.
