    -Historical Democrat concerned about antisemitism/anti-Israel messages from some Democrat in leadership positions

    -Still concerned even though Democrat was somewhat reprimanded by Democrats after comments were made.

    -Never ever imagined voting Republican

    -Aren’t some Republican leaders are antisemitic/anti-Israel too?

    -Want to approach this election weighing each side – rather than simply aligning with a party

    -Still need to find out who the Democratic candidate it too

    Anyone have non-polarizing thoughts?

    Thank you

    “-Historical Democrat concerned about antisemitism/anti-Israel messages from some Democrat in leadership positions”

    A very valid concern. This will get even worse than it already is.

    “-Still concerned even though Democrat was somewhat reprimanded by Democrats after comments were made.”

    Very valid concern. Will get worse.

    “-Never ever imagined voting Republican”

    The vast majority of frum Americans vote Republican. Join the program.

    “-Aren’t some Republican leaders are antisemitic/anti-Israel too?”

    No. Republicans kick out and denounce antisemites who run as Republicans (i.e. Duke.) Democrats coddle and embrace their antisemites. Witness not only the recent examples we all just saw but historical examples with Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and many others.

    “-Want to approach this election weighing each side – rather than simply aligning with a party”

    Good idea. But sometimes one party is so bad that the opposition is the only real choice.

    “-Still need to find out who the Democratic candidate it too”

    Virtually all the Democrat candidates in the presidential primary are horrible. Additionally, even if a not-so-horrible candidate wins, he must cater to the Democrat masses demanding terrible policies.

    The Democrats and Republicans are so bad that it is wrong to vote for either of them.

    Rep. Steve King is an elected Republican that is unabashedly anti-Semitic

    Luna:

    1. Please elucidate us how King is allegedly anti-Semitic.

    2. King has been disowned by Republicans, unlike Omar by the Democrats

    Joseph-
    King has made comments defending white nationalism/white supremacy and one cannot separate white supremacy from the antisemitism since it is a major part of the ideology.
    You’ll notice that I never made any claims about King’s statements being considered acceptable within the Republican party, CA said they didn’t know of a single elected Republican who is an anti-Semite and I pointed one out.

    White nationalism is the same as black identification, just for another racial group.

    How can there be any “concern”? Of the Democrats running for president, who appeared at the AIPAC conference? Not one Of them. Contrast that with their attendance at Al Shatpton’s get together. The Democrats abandoned us Jews long ago, wake up.
