Mamet sees creeping totalitarianism in Obama 2

Israel/Palestine
on 14 Comments

Amazing that the Jewish Journal of LA is running this nutty piece by David Mamet directed to Jews who are voting for Obama. The statement about a liberal government being inherently indisposed toward Israel ought to be true, by the way. The other pronouncements– alternative reality: 

Will you tell your children that a liberal government will increasingly marginalize, dismiss and weaken the support for and the safety of the Jewish state?

Will you tell them that, in a state-run economy, hard work may still be applauded, but that it will no longer be rewarded?

Will you explain that whatever their personal beliefs, tax-funded institutions will require them to imbibe and repeat the slogans of the left, and that, should they differ, they cannot have a career in education, medicine or television unless they keep their mouths shut?

…Most importantly, will you teach them never to question the pronouncements of those in power, for to do so is to risk ostracism?
