In case you are not aware of it, we happen to be Jewish, so don't be fearful of embarrassing yourself with your answer to the following question: Could you explain why the Jewish people, who are the chief crusaders for human rights, civil rights, animal rights, Taliban rights, and every right for creatures nobody ever even heard of, somehow, whenever Bill Clinton is involved, he could destroy the rights of every living thing on this earth, and the same Jewish people will find it not only enjoyable but even adorable? Not only will they find themselves enjoying and celebrating his behavior, but they will violently attack anybody who has the audacity to criticize this gentle, loving, caring, tender man just because he happens to be a common criminal.
Could you imagine any Jew excusing anybody else if they committed anything like his array of horrendous crimes? We don't have room for the whole list but let's start with this one. Remember the Paula Jones case? That was when Mr. Clinton, the president, supposedly the representative of the highest American values, was fined $1 million when he was convicted of sexual harassment. Why is it that, because of his criminal conduct, every denomination has refused to hear his voice in their building except the Jews? Could you imagine any other sexual predator being invited to lecture in a synagogue? Could you picture a sex maniac calling a temple in Miami Beach saying, "I got away with it. I'm not going to jail, so I'd like to come to your temple to make a speech for $100,000"? Could you picture the answer from the temple saying: "Perfect, that's just the price that we are paying this week for sexual predators"? Throughout his presidency, the Jewish people treated Mr. Clinton like he was a helpless victim of a conspiracy. They decided that he either wasn't responsible for what he did or somebody else was to blame for it, and if he was convicted of any crime, you had no right to mention it. The Jewish people are still willing to pay more than $100,000 per lecture even after they learned that he was involved in an actual rape case. (Remember the Juanita Broadrick case?)
Why do the Jews, who are heralded as the "brain people" who have won more Nobel Prizes than Mr. Clinton has collected girls, check their brains good-bye and reduce themselves to a mob of bamboozled puppets for Mr. Clinton? Why does it happen that his lecture dates are a list of only Jewish temples, schools and foundations? Isn't it ironic that these organizations, which are dedicated to raising standards of morality, decency and humanity, are now betraying the foundation of their own principles by supporting Mr. Clinton, whose whole life is a living symbol of the destruction of these same principles? It is wondrous to understand how Mr. Clinton could paralyze the brain of the Jewish population to an extent that he never could with the rest of the country.
The reason obviously is that his studious imitation of sorrowful compassion served as a unique weapon to seduce the Jews. Since the Jews are the most guilt-ridden people in the world, they are so mesmerized by any expression of compassion that they can't tell the difference between the real thing and the transparent fakery of Mr. Clinton. Why are gentiles offended enough to make it almost impossible for him to open his mouth in their presence? He hasn't got enough money to pay a gentile organization to even become a member. But the Jews are ready to pay anything to have him talk, walk, or even look in the direction of their organization.
The Jewish love affair with Bill Clinton is not an unusual story in the annals of history. Just as there are battered wives and persecuted husbands in personal situations, there are hundreds of examples coming from the same perverted needs in collective situations. That's why even decent people with honor roll mentalities were mentally paralyzed by Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Benito Mussolini. Here in America people thought they were patriots when they were really mindless robots following McCarthyism. Then why should we be surprised that the collective personality problem of a Jew should make him oblivious to the sociopathic character of Bill Clinton? He answers to their needs perfectly.
A Jew always feels like an alienated underdog struggling for acceptance. Jews have insecurities emanating from the Jewish historical stress on intellectual achievement, while gentiles were always bringing home football trophies. It becomes obvious that when a short Jew with glasses even talks to a gentile, especially with perfect gray hair, he feels himself climbing up the social ladder like he's moving from Brooklyn to Newport, R.I. Furthermore, if this tall gray-haired gentile happens to be a symbol of compassion, who cares if he is a liar? The main thing is that we could suddenly feel like his partner working together for the same cause. And if he was once the president, who cares about his character? Because of him, instead of feeling like a Jewish outsider, I will suddenly become an insider by having the ultimate insider in my synagogue. Since he is so handsome, my wife will be in the temple fawning and panting with such breathless fascination by his presence that she'll forget I'm a short Jewish man with glasses and she'll kiss me and love me in ways I never saw before because I brought him into her "circle." Is this worth a minimum of $100,000? At that price it sounds like a bargain even if you got him wholesale.
