My wife Karen and I were born and bred in Brooklyn. Which is to say that we were New York Jews whose parents were lever-pulling Democrats.
We were told that Democrats cared about the poor and Republicans only cared about rich people.
That’s what passed for political analysis in our crowd.
As Karen and I grew older and wiser, we realized that the party of Daniel Moynihan and John F. Kennedy was extinct. The left had colonized a once decent party and turned it into a blunt weapon of a vast regulatory state that cared little about liberty, but greatly valued a Marxist-tinged vision of utopia.
In addition, Jew-hatred, under the guise of anti-Zionism, has been mainstreamed by the American left, which is the postmodern Democrat party.
