I am a Different Kind of Jew

I AM A DIFFERENT KIND OF JEW

 

I hate Jews who voted for Obama.

Their vote demeans me as a Jew who has values and a brain.

 

I am not the Scarecrow.

I know that I am smart.

I don’t mean good.

I am good.

I am the deed not the intention.

I am the poem that should have been written.

 

I am conservative not liberal

Because I believe that the past is mother to the future

And living in the present is dying forever.

 

Jews are supposed to be smart not door mats for the mud of mindless loafers.

We think that we are generous if we bend over for other minorities.

If we are nice to the prejudiced

The prejudicial will be nice to us,

 

Sure. To liberals surrender is conquest.

If we are nice to enemies

We think that they will spare the rod and spoil the childishness

In us.

 

Sure. If a Jewish appeaser sees Kristallnacht as a glassy vision

He holds up a pane of friendly forgiveness for Nazi boots.

A Palestinian straps his son to dynamite to blow up innocent Jews.

Jews stand in line for Palestinian rights and denounce

Their own settlements.

 

If we see an unaccomplished man who descends from Muslims

Why do we make him President?

Flip a coin,

Obama is more tails than heads.

He sits on his ideology like a whoopee cushion.

His Nobel Prize is Miltonian,

It is the last infirmity of our ignoble minds.

Hannah Arendt thought that the banality of voting for a biased president

Is the dull insistence

Of evil.

 

The Jews hate me for having voted for Romney because experience

Is the undercutting of naïve enthusiasm.

Economics is not born of social work or of a community organizer.

And the liberal Jews believe all of Obama’s lies

Until lies become negative chain reactions

And the Jews become so ashamed of their choice

That they experience cognitive dissonance and celebrate Obama’s betrayal

Of Israel.

 

Muslims support Muslims blindly.

Jews pin the tail on the Democrat donkey even though

The burrow digs into its own failure.

 

The limousine liberals are riding in the front seat with the chauffeur

To pretend that they are populist as they run over the Jews with their fenders.

The Jews don’t know how to hate their enemies so their enemies diminish them.

The Jews surrender so they don’t have to say that they defeated themselves.

 

I would convert to Catholicism to avert liberal Jews but I can’t find God

In my coffee cup and I am only interested in the cream of this world,

In sweetening up our religion being a Jew who didn’t vote for Obama.
