NJDC Chairman, Marc R. Stanley wrote a piece for the Huffington Post titled, "No Apologies to Coulter, Hannity, et al." This is a response to right wing rant by Dean Rotbart in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal titled, "Dear Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin: I apologize for the Jewish vote for Obama."
Clearly, we have no need to apologize. Stanley's strong response is what is needed for this kind of ridiculous rhetoric.
Rotbart and others who share his view need to take a close look at themselves in the mirror. Do they want to continue supporting people like Ann Coulter who said that Jews need to be "perfected" and Sean Hannity, who invited Andy Martin, an anti-Semite, as a guest on his show? (This is the same anti-Semite who started the rumors about your "Muslim" faith.) While I do not believe Rotbart to be an anti-Semite nor do I believe that Rotbart thinks that Jews need to be perfected, I do know that the 78% of Jewish voters who chose the Obama/Biden ticket have no need to apologize. You do deserve an apology for Rotpart's use of "the gathering clouds of Holocaust II" and his outright statement that the "nuclear holocaust won" in this election.
Stanley's entire piece is well worth reading. Click here to read the rest.
