I know that some people are accusing Obama of being the anti-Christ, but inasmuch as I’m not a Christian, I wouldn’t want to venture an opinion. While it’s true I get a whiff of sulfur every time he opens his yap, I’m not sure it means anything. So far as I’m concerned, it’s enough that he’s an anti-Semite, an anti-capitalist and, judging by the speeches he’s delivered when traveling abroad, an anti-American.
I keep hearing those on the Left insist that the GOP is made up of nothing but rich old white people. I find that very odd because, while I try to keep track of these things, I haven’t heard even the faintest rumor that such rich old white people as Bill Gates, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Turner, Michael Moore, Larry Flynt, Al Gore, Warren Buffet, Norman Lear, George Soros, Jane Fonda, Warren Beatty, David Geffen, David Letterman, Michael Bloomberg, Dianne Feinstein, Charles Schumer, Ben Cohen, Jerry Greenfield, John and Teresa Kerry, Robert Byrd or Jay Rockefeller, had changed their political affiliation.
How stupid do people have to be in order to believe that when Henry Waxman orders the CEOs of John Deere, Caterpillar and AT&T, to come before him in order to be publicly humiliated, he will actually know any more about their businesses than he knew about steroids or baseball, for that matter, when he forced Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa, to testify a few years back?
Frankly, I just hope that Waxman never has me subpoenaed. Instead of concentrating on his insipid, self-serving questions, I’m sure I’d be focused on those nostrils and wondering, if he happened to suddenly inhale, if he could actually make dogs, cats and small sofas, vanish up his nose; and wondering, too, if he ever sneezed, whether Jimmy Hoffa, Judge Crater and parts of Atlantis would miraculously appear.
If Waxman ever decides to retire from Congress, he could rent out his shnoz as a tourist attraction and quickly put Carlsbad Caverns out of business.
Getting back to Barack Obama, I honestly don’t know why so many of my fellow Jews are shocked to discover that he is so blatantly pro-Arab and is willing, even anxious, to sell out Israel for far less than the usual 30 pieces of silver.
Perhaps they are shocked simply because he has surrounded himself with so many Jewish leftists, and was so deep into the pockets of George Soros and Andy Stern that along with hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign funds, he was also collecting lint.
Jewish liberals will apparently sacrifice anything, including Israel’s survival, for the sake of furthering their loony left-wing agenda.
So far as I’m concerned, it has always seemed obvious that Obama is a virulent anti-Semite. Before you attack me for attacking him, ask yourself one simple question: Can you imagine sitting in Rev. Wright’s church for 20 minutes, let alone 20 years, if you weren’t a Jew hater?
