WHEN ISRAEL GETS INTO TROUBLE, LEFTIST MONEY DRIES UP | 2003-05-24

In the 1970s Israel was in the midst of a crisis. During that crisis there was an election in the United States.

The result was that a Republican campaign manager in Arkansas made one of those statements that,

1) everybody knows is true; and

2) You can get killed for saying.

He said that liberals were losing the election because all their campaign money was going into dealing with the current crisis in Israel.

We all know that when Israel gets into trouble, money that would be spent for leftist causes in America goes to the Israeli Lobby and to Israel. That was true in the 1970s and nobody denied it. They just wanted anybody who said it lynched.

Today when Israel gets into trouble it drains money away from American leftists. No one actually denies this obvious fact, but they will still lynch you if you state it.

Only an Evil Man would say this.

That's what you have me for.
