Chuck Schumer: Anti-Semites Are Republican

On Bill Maher’s Real Time:  “There are some, you know there are some anti-Semites in this country, but most of them would vote Republican anyway.” You can watch it here.

Yeah, because, you know, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Keith Ellison, Michael Moore and other leading lights of American anti-Semitism are Republicans.

Not to mention surveys demonstrating without question that Democrats are more likely to have unsympathetic views of Israel than Republicans. (No, I’m not saying you can’t be anti-Israel without being anti-Semitic. But it’s a signpost.)

This was Chuck Schumer attempting to be jocular. Hardy-har-har.
