This Jewish obsession with WASPs is particularly startling when looking at a number of issues. Look at the rapturous reception received by the Pope on his visit to NY, DC, and Philadelphia. Catholics are still a sizable block – both in politics and culture. Granted, the Italian & Irish Catholics of the Northeast and Midwest are declining, being replaced by Latinos. Protestants may find the Pope admirable, but they were not the one packing the streets.
As this page noted – the recent Iran Deal survived in Congress, in no small part due to a black president and the unity demonstrated by the Congressional Black Caucus. Trying to persuade them to abandon the first black president at the behest of an Israeli gov’t that has a poor track record on treating African migrants did not strike anyone as hopeless?
In academic competitions, Jews have been edged out in many areas by Asian students – Chinese, Indian, Korean, etc. NY’s Stuyvesant school is now regarded by some as “too Asian” – incidentally, I don’t recall this as a problem when the school was “too Jewish.” My relatives in Syosset, who sent their kids to the public schools, noted the difference in how families deal with kids who bring home disappointing report cards. The Jewish parents will often raise the issue with the school, while the Asian parents will trust the teacher’s judgment and tell their kids to try harder next time.
With all these other groups exercising their clout, and elite Jews are still worried about how WASPs view them?
