How many of you remember this? In 2000, when Hillary Clinton was campaigning for her first term in the Senate, someone came out with a book suggesting that she might be anti-Semitic, or at least that she made anti-Semitic remarks. At the time it seemed possible that this could deal a death blow to her campaign, given the large percentage of voters in New York State, and especially its largest city, that come from Jewish backgrounds. However, she won the election and won again six years later.
The book, written by Jerry Oppenheimer, who specializes in unauthorized biographies, and published by Harper Collins, was entitled “State of a Union,” and professed to be a thorough analysis of the marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton. It contended that in 1974, when Bill Clinton ran for Congress from Arkansas and narrowly lost, Hillary – not yet Mrs. Clinton — took out her anger on one of Bill’s campaign officials, calling him “You f—— Jew bastard!”
Hillary denied the allegation when it surfaced, and Bill, then in his final months as president, weighed in too, with the odd statement that “I was there and she didn’t say it.” Odd because if it didn’t happen, where was “there”?
I cannot believe that either Bill (“I did not have sex with that woman”) or Hillary (“I remember landing under sniper fire”) would speak an untruth, even if it meant protecting themselves politically.
I am particularly anxious to give Mrs. Clinton the benefit of the doubt, having just come off the publication of another blog on this site that suggested, satirically, that she might have staged the recent incident in Las Vegas, where a woman threw a shoe at her. A horde of mad dog liberals, hysterical females of both sexes, unable to recognize satire and taking the piece dead seriously, attacked me as a conspiracy theorist who should be wearing a tinfoil hat. I came of age in the Kennedy era, and seldom wear hats of any kind, so the suggestion went over my head.
So I am being careful to not seem unfair to Mrs. Clinton.
And yet, there is the indisputable fact that Mrs. Clinton is a volatile person, capable of eardrum-rupturing decibels. The anti-Semitic slur could have happened and she might have simply forgotten it. Can we really expect Hillary Clinton, of all people, to remember every profanity she has uttered?
Jews have been a favorite target of politicians for ages, but as the Clinton campaign demonstrated, their numbers are so few that you can say what you please about them, and it won’t cost you any elections. In the case of Hitler in 1930s Germany, it appears to have had just the opposite effect.
I don’t see that his attitude toward Jews has hurt Barack Hussein Obama. When he entered the White House, Israel was our most loyal ally. Five years later its prime minister has been defamed by our president and his country marginalized by U.S. foreign policy. And yet Obama won re-election in 2012, with Jewish Democrats falling all over each other to get to the polls and place a check beside his name. Many conservative goyim say they can’t understand that.
They just don’t appreciate that Jews — many of them, at any rate — seem as inclined as anyone to look down on Jews. Every Jew has a favorite Jewish joke, usually carrying the theme that Jews are moneygrubbers.
Q: How do you drive a Jew insane?
A: Put him in a round room and tell him there’s a quarter in the corner.
Q: Why do Jewish men like to watch porno movies backward?
A: They like the part where the hooker gives the money back.
(That one is said to have been told by Monica Lewinsky, a Jew, to President Clinton, during one of their timeouts in the Oval Office.)
Q: How do you stop a Jewish woman from having sex?
A: Marry her.
(Not a money joke, but obviously the creation of a married, or formerly married, Jewish man.)
If we were to question Mrs. Clinton today about the allegations of anti-Semitism leveled against her in 2000, she might shrug her shoulders and reply, loudly: “At this point what difference does it make? I won the election.”
