Sane Jews Do Not Vote for Hillary: Joan Swirsky

At the beginning of January 2016, an organization called NORPAC—a lobby whose mission is to support candidates and sitting members of Congress “who demonstrate a genuine commitment to the strength, security, and survival of Israel”—invited its members to “an exclusive and intimate” cocktail reception for Hillary Clinton for people willing to pay $2,700 per individual or $5,400 per couple.

The invitation included a synopsis of Hillary’s credibility vis-a-vis Israel, stating that she had “been a supporter of the US-Israel relationship for many years…and, as Secretary of State, she had stood up against Israel’s enemies….”

Then, NORPAC promptly betrayed its pretense of impartiality by stating: “Please join us in support of Secretary Hillary Clinton for President and share your concerns about the US-Israel relationship with her at this pro-Israel event.”

Of course, all of this hype was pure fiction, but fully embraced by the leftwing Jews who have essentially abandoned genuine Judaism for the Social Justice causes embraced by the Democrat party, causes that make them feel like “good” people—everything from the redistribution of wealth (aka Communism) to saving the environment (from the colossal hoax known as climate change) to equality for women (except when it comes to speaking out against the vile abuses of Sharia law, the mass rapes by Muslims in Europe, and the rapacious behavior of one Bill Clinton) to the Holy Grail of leftism, abortion, which amounts to the de facto approval of the over fifty-eight-million infants murdered by this gruesome procedure since it became the law of the land in 1973.

But the subject here is not the magical thinking of leftists or the suicidal ideation of liberal Jews. Rather, it is to correct the decades-long fantasy that Hillary Clinton is even remotely supportive of Jews, Israel, Zionism, in fact anything to do with Jewish life.


In an article in in December, 2002, writer Carl Limbacher reported that as far back as 1979, when Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas, “it was quite common” for both Bill and Hillary to refer to each other as “a Jew mother f-cker” or a “Jew bastard.” This was reported by Arkansas state trooper Larry Patterson, who guarded the couple for six years. Patterson also said that he “won’t go into their generous use of the N word,” but only seven years ago, Bill told Sen. Ted Kennedy of Barack Obama, “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”

When Hillary was First Lady of Arkansas, there were few if any Jews in her orbit…simply a demographic phenomenon. So where did her Jew hatred come from? Her reported-to-be Republican parents? Her upbringing in generally leftist Chicago? Her education at elite Wellesley College? Her religion, most often described as Methodist—you know, that lovely Protestant denomination that is relentless in pursuing the Boycott-Divest-Sanction campaign against Israel ?

In Wellesley, she was introduced to the writings of America-hating Saul Alinsky, the author of Rules for Radicals, a man she maintained close ties to, wrote her thesis about, and, to this day, echoes his “America is bad” beliefs.

It’s useless to speculate about where Hillary’s leftism or antipathy to Jews came from, sort of like wondering about the genesis of a particular malignancy. Yet, speculating can sometimes shed light. Perhaps Hillary’s Jew hatred came from the experience she had when, at age 27, the Yale Law School graduate served on the committee to impeach President Richard M. Nixon, and a Jew, Jerome Zeifman, Chief Counsel on the Watergate Committee, fired her for lying and being unethical, according to writer Carole Fader.

In Zeifman’s 2006 book, ‘Hillary’s Pursuit of Power,’ Fader reports, he wrote that, “Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president—and if she were to become president, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.”
