Red Sox Legend Curt Schilling Questions CNN’s Jake Tapper “Why Do Jews Support Democrats?”


Curt Schilling continues to make waves with controversial remarks.  He says a lot in this  3 minute video. Days after the former Boston Red Sox pitcher expressed a desire to run for a Massachusetts Senate seat in 2018 opposite Elizabeth Warren, Schilling asked Jake Tapper on CNN’s The Lead why Jews support the Democratic Party. “I don’t understand — and this is, maybe this is the amateur, non-politician in me, “I don’t understand how people of Jewish faith can back the Democratic Party,” Schilling said, “which over the last 50 years has been so clearly anti-Israel, so clearly anti-Jewish Israel. I don’t know what else would need to be done, said or happen for people to understand that they don’t the Democratic Party is alive for Israel only because we have agreements in place to make them have to be.”


Jake Tapper, who is Jewish, told him that he doesn’t speak for people of his faith, but opined that the reason is because Jews support social welfare programs. “And I know a lot of Jews who are very strong supporters of Israel do support the Republican Party,” Tapper responded, “but again, I don’t speak for Jews.” Schilling reiterated that he will consult with his family before pushing forward with his intention to run for office.”When you look at, I think the state of media and the politics now, conservative families are fair game,” Schilling said. “And I don’t know that (my family) want(s) to be put through that and I don’t know that I would want to put them through that.”


Tapper essentially says Jews support social programs because of the ever famous Jewish Guilt. I’m not trying to be flippant. I am just trying to understand it myself.  I guess he’s talking about Jewish guilt. For example New York Jews vote Democrat. Broward County Jews in Florida vote Democrat, and now we have the answer. They believe in welfare, and food stamp programs for the poor. Any sociologist will tell you when you give people free stuff without putting any responsibilities on them for the free stuff you create an environment of dependent needy people. They wouldn’t know because it’s not their children living in those conditions. Maybe they should look at that again. Perhaps they should take Curt Schillings advice. Stop voting Democrat.
