Republicans Have Been Misjudged
May 4, 2010
There was a time during my radio career when I did not state publicly I was a Republican, although I was dying to do so because everybody else was a Democrat!
I wanted my coworkers and the public to know that not everybody in the media was a left-winger.
In those days, before the Fairness Doctrine was rescinded, it was next to professional suicide to proclaim one was a Republican . . . especially here in New York. And if you made your Republican membership generally known, you might be considered “anti-Semitic, fascistic, a bigot, or maybe even a Nazi.”
I am not exaggerating. I have been privileged to become very close to a good number of New York and New Jersey citizens who are Jewish. They confessed either they or people they know or even relatives of theirs had these suspicions of people who were Republicans.
I think it is safe to say that prejudice no longer exists on a wide scale although there are some members of the Jewish community who still harbor those views.
As a matter of fact, I could name many fellow Americans of the Jewish faith who themselves are proud members of the GOP. I would name some of them right here, but I will let them speak for themselves.
However, I knew someone who was rather close to Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League. He said Abe didn’t like Republicans. That is his right and I don’t like most Democrats.
I dislike most Democrats because I believe they have become socialists at heart and, above all, they seem ashamed to be pro-American on the world stage.
For example, the current mayor of New York City may have run on the Republican line in his campaign in 2001, but has always been a Democrat.
Just yesterday when he was interviewed about the recent failed bomb attack in Times Square, he said he thought it might have been a disgruntled American who didn’t like the Obama healthcare bill!
Now . . . Michael Bloomberg should be run out of town for that stupid and slanderous statement, but he won’t be because that is something all the lefties in America believe.
No, I am afraid that this streak of anti-Americanism is what will bring this country down.
I don’t know how much more time God is going to give me on this earth, but I will try to last as long as I can and perhaps I will live long enough to see Barack Obama proclaim the United States of America a Muslim nation.
It would be fitting since I have seen enough tapes of his actual speeches to convince me that he, himself, is at heart a Muslim.
