Several months ago, Ivan Cutler in Greensboro had a Facebook post that discussed North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein speaking at his local synagogue. Cutler said that Stein "passionately invoked his Jewish heritage of fighting injustice and protecting rights of all citizens".
Only a month or two prior to that, this blog had been heavily criticized by the regional media/left complex because I had portrayed Stein's repeated litigation against the Trump Administration as a reflection of his Jewish worldview. But Stein apparently, when speaking before other Jewish folks, says that he invokes his Jewish heritage when taking action as Attorney General. He, ironically enough, was saying something very similar to what I said, but in a different context.
This week, Stein solicited more attention by joining yet another suit against Trump-- this time, over the census question issue. It is apparently regarded as critical to maintain a partisan advantage for the democratic socialists by assuring that the drawing of district lines and the disbursement of federal funds take account of illegals.
Stein's lawsuit-of-the-month must be interpreted in the context of the powerful historical case the noted academician, Kevin MacDonald, has made asserting that American Jews have wanted lots of immigrants in the United States for their own ethnic self-interest. In fact, MacDonald discussed his considerable work in a blog post today. Stein's social and political activism mirrors the work of his co-ethnics who historically sought to have many immigrants come to the United States from every corner of the globe to dilute the power and influence of Americans whose background is Christian or Western or Caucasian.
Stein's apparent antipathy for Trump was previously noted in a national Jewish online publication. Forward reported last year that Stein (and a few other Jewish state attorneys general) snubbed Trump when the President sought to have the nation's state attorneys general gather at the White House.
The Daily Haymaker pointed out earlier this week that Stein's actions serve as a sober reminder that elections have consequences. He is correct, of course. It was a massive failure for the North Carolina GOP to cede this particular office to Stein.
But I continue to maintain that understanding worldview is of critical importance. And nothing could better illustrate worldview than the PR gesture Governor Roy Cooper staged last week at the Governor's Mansion. He decided to host a Passover Seder meal, and of course, Josh Stein was in attendance.
Cooper was sending out signals by staging this event. He was delivering a message to the donor class.
But this meeting of Cooper and Stein also represents, in a broader sense, the union of liberal mainline Presbyterianism and contemporary Judaism, and the worldview items they have in common-- secularism, socialism, radical feminism, sexual liberationism and cultural relativism.
You can probably add to that list diversity, multiculturalism and open borders.
In aggregate, it is a fairly gruesome list. But it is the reality, regardless of however the media/left complex chooses to portray it.
Cooper's meeting with Stein and others last week had absolutely nothing to do with honoring the Torah. Instead, the event occurred in spite of the scriptural revisionism in which their respective faith traditions routinely engage.
