NY Times Attacks Bernie Sanders For Not Sounding Jewish Enough

Bernie Sanders  is closing in on Hillary Clinton, running adds promising to break up the US monopoly banks, a promise not heard in my lifetime from a major party candidate, and a very tough job.  It should be no surprise that the bankers’ pal-media has comes on with an attack on Sanders.  This one seem to be a skimpy shot even for the New York Times…they pick on Senator Sanders because he is not painting himself as being Jewish enough!

It seems Sanders rather proudly spoke of his father as a “Polish Immigrant.”  But NY Times think he should call dad something more ethnic.  I suppose if he would have called his father a “Jewish exile from Poland” this would have made the Times happy.  And if  Sanders was to emigrate to somewhere else, he should call himself a “Jewish exile” instead of an emigrating American Citizen? The rest of us do not have to put a “Baptist” “Catholic” or “none of the above” after our name, why does Bernie Sanders?  The fact is, Sanders is under the skin of Wall Street and its mouthpieces media, The NY Times, which is just beginning to go on the attack as he gains ground and young supporters, and a few older ones too!  A clip from this negative story follows to make the point, and a link if you need more evidence that the attack is on!

He said he was surprised that the Vermont senator had not explicitly described his father as a “Polish Jewish immigrant,” a significant distinction given Poland’s checkered history with its Jewish population. “Nobody in Poland would have considered Bernie a Pole,” Rabbi Paley said.
