[su_right_ad]The Iowa congressman says Democratic Jews are putting their party ahead of their religion. King, of course, is a renowned theologian who believes all Jews should think alike; and, of course, he knows what’s in their hearts.

“Here’s what I don’t understand: I don’t understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president,” King said on Boston Herald radio. “They’re knee-jerk supporters of the president’s policy.”

King went on to say that President Obama’s foreign policy has been a “disaster” and America has not improved relations with any country under Obama. King said anti-Semitism, coupled with “just plain liberalism,” are factors at work.

    What simple-minded person he is.

    are empty minds like this intentional or birth defects? It’s hard to imagine someone with a third grade education thinking and speaking like this piece of merde – unless it has an ulterior motive but then the word ulterior might just go right over its head.

    Maybe the majority of Jewish people in this country have no desire to support a party whose base includes racist teabaggers like you. You see, two can play this character assassination game. Unfortunately when it comes to the GOP, bigotry is not a game. It is very real.

    Rep. King should clean up the garbage in his own party before propagating lies about the President. It is classic projection on the part of Rep. King. Below is a recent story which makes it crystal clear which major political party harbors anti-semites and does not try very hard to hide that fact.

    “Here’s what I don’t understand: I don’t understand how Christians in America can be Republicans first and Christian second.” — the rest of America to Rep. Steve King

    I have no words to describe the depth of my loathing for this man. He is an embarrassment to my state.

    And in that conversation, King helped give a boost to Democratic fund raising in the Jewish community.

    My question to Jews in America is how you could even give thought to belonging to the same party as this dope?

    Its fairly obvious this guy thinks jews should do what they are damn well told to do by their christian masters.

      I don’t know what you just said, but I think I probably would like it.

      I’ll bet it wouldn’t be polite of me to ask, either!

  8. jasperjava March 21st, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    Uh, Mr. King, Jews don’t vote Republican because of people like you.

  9. bpollen March 21st, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Well, Mr. King (boy is that a misnomer…) I don’t understand how people can be Republicans and STILL claim to be Christian. You know, like what that Jeebus guy said in Matthew 6:24 –
    “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

    Another WASP Bible thumping evangelical who thinks he understands Jews.

    How can christians be republicans?

  12. labman57 March 21st, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    Steve King is lambasting the American Jewish community for NOT doing precisely what he routinely accuses the American Muslim community of doing … and what Christian conservatives take pride in doing — politicizing their religious and cultural views to the point of placing loyalties for a theocratic ideology ahead of their loyalties toward the United States.

    I would like this nutjob to explain to me why there are females in the republican party.
