Political Stupidity of the Jews

Joseph Epstein writes in the WSJ:
The Political Stupidity of the Jews Revisited
Why do so many of my fellow Jews stay in the Democratic Party’s pocket? ...

The best face that can be put on this unwillingness, bordering on a genetic-inability, of Jews to vote Republican is that Jewishness, if not Judaism, has at its center a hatred of injustice and a concomitant yearning for equality. All this, presumably, has been ingrained in Jews by their own long history as the scapegoats of tyrants. Being underdogs, the Jews ipso facto are themselves for underdogs. Republicans, traditionally, have been top dogs. Don’t, something in most Jews tells them, go there.
No, the Republicans are not the top dogs, and Jews are not underdogs.

Today's super-rich are disproportionally Jewish and Democrat. And Jews do not yearn for equality.

Whatever the reasons, Jews are just one of many demographic groups that vote overwhelmingly Democrat. Other non-Christians vote Democrat, including Moslems and atheists. So do blacks, and other non-whites. So do government workers, and low-information voters. So do single moms on welfare. So do America-haters and other fringe groups.

The Democrat Party has become the party of identity politics. The main thing holding them together is their promise to undermine WASPs and traditional American culture.

The Left has declared a culture war on Americanism, and the various ethnic groups are choosing sides.
