I was raised in an urban residential community in St. Paul, Minnesota before and during the Second World War. It was an overwhelming Christian community, politically and culturally led by Roman Catholics. Protestants, if a majority in our neighborhoods, were split up into countless Protestant testaments….mine being United Lutheran. There was only one significant “other” group….really, the only noticeable minority in our local mix, our Jewish community at nearly ten per cent, a number that increased beginning at the war’s end.
There were twelve very modest residential homes built on 45 by 95 foot lots along our side of the east-west block between 1936 and Pearl Harbor. Across the street northward where our two Jewish neighbors lived, the setting was the same except there were four empty lots until the year the war was over. (We never got to know these residents. They were younger married couples at the beginning of their families. I began high school in 1948, a mixed race school across the city four miles away….(an outstanding educational institution until 1951 when the traditional learning knowledge curriculum was forever destroyed by the neoliberals, the intellectually lazy, the ones who hated learning knowledge and preferred Americans become equally stupid in the name of equality.
A wealthier part of the community where more Jews lived developed eastward after the war. Homes here were larger to much larger, furnishings new and ritzy, with grounds also a bit larger, well designed and better manicured. These Jews, successful business people in retail and law, hired maids and gardeners.
From 1936 until 1952 when I graduated from high school, this was the neighborhood in which I was raised, culturally, educationally, and Americanly with Church people, family people of small business and retail shops providing reliable incomes usually earned by fathers. Most mothers remained at and caring for home. They made the community a neighborhood. (My mother did work at my father’s corner drugstore).
Jews regardless of incomes, remained isolated culturally in nearly every manner. They culturally seemed to regard themselves religiously superior, whose children were to remain clean and remain separate from local Christian tribes. While totally unknown to me at the time, I, a rather obtuse Gentile, had the good fortune to cross into these colder territories to be accepted by the more misfit among Jewish boys my age, the ones who forgot their provincial rules of public behavior when outdoors and away from home. I honestly don’t remember any of us while playing ‘together’ were aware of these local tribal rules of the day. We went to the same schools for more than a decade. We became almost family because of neighborhood. When in high school, we would laugh when talking freely about our common past and its pinchings.
I was horribly dyslexic as a kid….long before the word had meaning. I could not read books, most books, normally……I had to visualize to learn….but extremely curious about life and the why of it…. knowledge where things come from, music, humans, plants, but not animals…..Unaware of my plight well into adulthood I survived in school by mentally photographing my learnings..the learnings I liked that is. Maps…war pictures in the newspapers and movies, neighbor’s livingrooms, gardens, if what I saw I wanted to know, I memorized visually….Except for atlases and encyclopedias, books were hostile territory until college…and then even a struggle to read if novels.
Learning information in the areas of my intellectual strengths were no problem, however if connected to the visual. Through this visual I found stamina, drive, impatience to find answers to questions which came up in my life of interest and strengthened the accumulation of knowledge…..Leading my list of native drives was my innate curiosity as a human male to wonder who we, why are we living here….as well as what does ‘here’ mean and the ‘theres’ look like.
I discovered the Earth, geography, war, the forest and garden, Beethoven and libraries very early in life…….This led to success in school despite my reading problems, allowing me to collect friends, especially classmates from Jewish backgrounds, nearly all of whom were under threat from home to get good grades. I had no idea what ‘good grades’ were. I simply attended and managed to learn well things that had nothing to do with reading novels, many of which inspired me to hunger to know more.
What does all this have to do with Jewish neighbors during the war years, Donald Trump, Dennis Prager, and today’s United States of America, you ask?
Because, so many of today’s Nazi-like antiAmerican articles like the one written below, selling today’s Nazi-like diseases of propaganda common in our era of Barack Hussein Obama rule and promoted as university instruction by leftist, Nazi-like JEWS, such as Michael A. Cohen, at least the mid-1920s version!
About 70% of voting Jewish Americans in my lifetime vote Democrat, which until the past decade has been no problem. I used to be one myself. I would gladly vote for another President John F. Kennedy if such a clone were alive today….and so, gladly, was thrilled to vote for Donald J. Trump who is still alive and well.
But countless among today’s Obama-Hillary street and university extremist Jewish Democrats have become Nazified, “Cohenized”, Sydney Bloomenthalled, (one could go on for hours listing similar leftist Jews of their own Nazilike leftist advertising the dishonest as in the following article. Truth no longer matters. Action, riots, bullying, deceit do.
The same can be charged against 30% of more of today’s American leftist black political noises on television, streets and schools alike.
Yet, it must also be noted that the most courageous of Americans seeking truth these days are Jewish and black conservatives who preach and defend their political faith in Americana.
Michael A. Cohen wrote the following despicable article at the Boston Globe…..deceiving his readers with the following conspiracy theory of a political liaison between Putin Russia and Our Donald Trump. Such filth is becoming standard among many of today’s leftist Democrat Party leftist Jewish zealots. Ironically, the deceit is rather Nazi-like, reminiscent of Germany of the late 1920s, isn’t it?
Russia helped Trump win, with a big assist from the media
“What is it about our political system that made us vulnerable to these kinds of potential manipulations? How it is that a presidential election of such importance . . . with so many big issues at stake and such a contrast between the candidates, came to be dominated by a bunch of these leaks”?
President Obama raised these questions at his press conference last week when asked about the Russian government’s efforts to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election. They deserve far greater scrutiny than they’ve received.
