Mitt Happens Alert: Jewish Dems Criticize Romney Announcement Locale

By Debbie Schlussel
The National Jewish Democratic Council is slamming Mitt Romney for making his Presidential candidacy announcement, today, at Henry Ford Museum in Dearbornistan. They think this honors Henry Ford, a known and egregious anti-Semite and supporter of Adolf Hitler (from whom he received the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle).
But that’s a red herring. As a member of the Detroit Jewish Community, I can tell you that I and many of my Jewish friends have visited Henry Ford Museum and its outside grounds, which used to be known as Greenfield Village. Especially for kids, it is one of the great museums of American history, with such buildings as Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park Laboratory, the Wright Brothers’ home and workshop, Noah Webster’s home, etc. rebuilt on its grounds.


Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney: Mitt Happens . . .

But Hopefully Not to America

Yes, we all know that Henry Ford was an anti-Semite, but that has nothing to do with the great museum built on his former estate. It hasn’t stopped us from visiting. My problem is with Ford Motor Company, the company he founded, which, today, continues to fund Islamist and pan-Arabist interest groups in Dearborn which are populated by anti-Semites, Israel-haters and terror supporters, and which foment all of those points of view.
As for Romney, I don’t believe he’s an anti-Semite. I just think he’s a phony. I don’t like him, not because of his announcement at the museum Henry Ford founded, but because he attacked Americans for cheering at the Olympic Games he headed, right after 9/11. And I don’t like him because he’s a patrician liberal who’s suddenly a (phony) conservative.
THIS is why I will never vote for Mitt Romney.
And here are several other reasons:

Mitt Happens. Romney is a Liberal.

A quick look at the “Republican” frontrunners and all I can say is God help us. Not a conservative in the bunch. I see nothing but GW part II.

What a piece of work this buffoon is. Listen to the answer on the Boy Scouts (where he was a board member)–in the same breath he says he supports the boy scouts right to ban gays and then seamlessly says he opposes banning gays on the basis of sexual orientation!! He does this throughout the debate.
Give him credit for this–he fits right in to the kind of pols we regularly elect in this country!

How fair is it to him to insist that his views in 1994 are his views today? Remember that McCain was before 1996 a Conservative, and a leading supporter of Phil Gramm.

To the schmucks/ettes who speak on behalf of “Jewish Democrats”,I guess I’ll join when they get the Henry mf Ford Museum renamed after Victor
Herman,whose autobiography ‘Coming Out Of The Ice’- and terribly fictionalized movie about him,starring John Savage-in arguably the worst case of deliberate abandonment/antisemitism by Henry Ford & Co. inspired this particular Jewish & Democratic & generally loud-mouth crowd to become nebbish role-models and do bupkis on his behalf.

The National Jewish Democratic Council’s opposition to racism and anti-Semitism ends where the MoveOn.org wing of the Democratic Party begins.
Unlike Henry Ford, who retracted and repudiated his anti-Semitic publications, MoveOn.org and Al Sharpton never apologized for or retracted their vicious racist and anti-Semitic hate speech. See my URL for a long dossier of the bigoted hate speech that NJDC’s friends at MoveOn.org–noting that NJDC attempted to whitewash MoveOn.org on this issue–knowingly and willfully hosted at their Action Forum.
MoveOn.org’s anti-Semitic material is worse than anything Ford ever published, and it could have easily come directly from Hitler and Goebbels. The anti-Catholic hate could have come from the infamous 19th century cartoonist Thomas Nast. Hate and ridicule also were directed at (Republican) African-Americans and Evangelical Christians. The less said about Al “Bloodsucking Jews” Sharpton, the better.
It seems that NJDC has a far bigger problem with Mitt Romney giving a speech at the museum of a dead EX-anti-Semite than with Barack Obama appearing at a MoveOn.org rally, thus lending his image to living and unrepentent hatemongers and bigots of the worst kind. That is because NJDC has the self-respect, dignity, and integrity of a cheap prostitute with no values or honor whatsoever.
The same goes, of course, for all candidates who have accepted MoveOn’s and/or Al Sharpton’s support, e.g. Barack Obama, Al Gore, Ned Lamont, and John Kerry. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, has accepted campaign money from Jane Fonda, Michael Moore, and George Soros.
Debbie is right about Mitt Romney, although I will have to vote for him (if he is nominated) if the Democrats put up Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or any other George Soros-backed candidate.

Debbie backs Rudy Guiliani, who IS a liberal. Let’s not kid ourselves any of the GOP front-runner candidates is a Reagan conservative.
But they all support the need to oppose Islamofascism and to prevent future 9/11s in America, which the Democrats don’t seem to want to stop. Then of course, there is Musiim domestic terrorism like in the attack yesterday in the Utah mall. We face a problem and the 9/10 party’s denial is not going to make it go away and their defeatism will make it far worse.
