Don't Assume All Jews Are Democrats

Don't Assume All Jews Are Democrats

By Thursday, 03 May 2018 03:58 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Thank you, Kanye West. You have inspired me with your courage.

The rapper tweeted out to millions of his fans about his love for President Trump. He declared, "Blacks don’t have to be Democrats." Then he quoted Thomas Sowell (a black conservative). Another black rapper quickly agreed. Another rapper threatened his life with retribution from the violent Crips gang.

Great job Kanye. You stirred the drink. You made people think. No one owns your vote.

It’s time to think out of the box. Time to think contrarian.

Black Americans should not be voting in lockstep with the Democrat Party.

It’s time to ask what Democrats have done for black Americans lately? Or ever?

Is black America better off now than when Lyndon Johnson ushered in  "The Great Society"?

Twenty-five trillion dolars spent on welfare and poverty programs, and poverty is in the same place. Maybe worse for black Americans.

How about Obama? What did he do for black America? Lots of talk. But was anyone lifted out of poverty? Has the murder rate on the streets of Chicago, Detroit, and Baltimore gotten any better? Actually, those numbers worsened under Obama.

Are the public schools working for black children?

As Diamond and Silk would say, "Uh uh, no way."

But here’s the thing. I’m 100 percent Jewish — both parents, both sets of grandparents.

I see Jews making the same mistake as black Americans.

Drinking the same Democratic Kool Aid.

I’m going to be the Kanye West of the Jews. I’m going to scream it from the highest mountaintops, "Jews don't have to be Democrats."

This isn’t something new for me. I was profiled by CNBC in 2003. When they asked me what my number one goal was, I said, "To become the leading Jewish Republican in Nevada and convince Jews across America to become Republicans."

The CNBC anchors almost fainted.

When I was at dinner at Mar a Lago earlier this year, I told President Trump the same thing. I explained to the president that my goal is to travel this country on his behalf; to speak to Jewish groups, convincing them to vote Republican.

And why not? What has the Democratic Party ever done for Jews?

That’s the number one question I get from fans and callers on my national TV and radio shows. They say, "Wayne, why do your Jewish people vote Democratic? It makes no sense. Can’t you convert them?"

Jews are a brilliant, talented, and educated people.

The Jews believe in family and God. They love America — the only country (besides Israel) in world history that ever welcomed them. They are ambitious, self-reliant, successful, and business-oriented.

I’m betting a higher percentage of Jews own businesses than any other group in America.

Jews are all about achievement. They have achieved mobility in America like no other group. My father was a blue-collar butcher, yet my sister and I both graduated from Columbia University. You know the odds of that? Amazingly, I personally know hundreds of Jews with that same story of mobility, striving for excellence and over-the-top success.

We didn’t get there by mistake. There was no luck involved. No one gave us anything.

We earned it.

The story of the remarkable success of the Jewish people is all about education, family, God, work ethic, personal responsibility, ambition (we call it Chutzpah), discipline, and sacrifice.

Those are all the exact traits, beliefs, and principles of the GOP.

Government owes you nothing. "If  it's to be, it is up to me."

The Jewish people always achieved success throughout history in spite of government. Government isn’t the answer. It’s up to you. Your brain. Your ambition. Your discipline. Your personal responsibility. Your work ethic.

Just as Kanye West advised to black Americans, it’s time to break away from old thinking. It’s time to think out of the box. How your grandparents voted doesn't matter anymore.

It’s time to create a new future.

The Jewish People are already perfect Republicans. We are the living embodiment of what the GOP stands for. No, "Jews Don’t Have to Be Democrats."

Actually, it boggles my mind and defies common sense that anyone who is Jewish votes Democratic!
