Democrats Fall In Behind Racist

But it's okay. He's their racist.
Orthodox Jews in the largely Hasidic enclave of Brooklyn’s Borough Park neighborhood could soon find themselves represented in Congress by a politician who routinely uses anti-Semitic rhetoric and believes that Israel should never have been created.

The possibility that New York City Councilman Charles Barron could clinch the Democratic nomination today in a race against Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries has put Jewish leaders of all stripes on high alert—and could set the tone for how Jewish voters view the Democratic Party going forward.

“Without question, if Barron wins on Tuesday, how the state and national leadership of his party deal with his campaign will have an impact nationally on how Jews and other constituents will vote in November,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an institution established to combat anti-Semitism.
