B-b-b-b-but Ms. Liberal Jew, I thought that mixing races was good? Also, I thought races don’t exist?
Democratic National Committee chairman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is now trying to walk back comments she made against the “problem” of intermarriage of Jewish people with gentiles.
“We have the problem of assimilation. We have the problem of intermarriage,” said in leaked audio obtained last week by Shark Tank blog. “We have the problem that too many generations of Jews don’t realize the importance of our institutions strengthening our community — particularly with the rise of anti-Semitism and global intolerance.”
In a statement through the DNC, the Florida Democrat stepped back from those comments a bit: “I do not oppose intermarriage; in fact, members of my family, including my husband, are a product of it,” she wrote.
She provided additional context: “At an annual Jewish community event in my congressional district, I spoke about my personal connection to Judaism and in a larger context about the loss of Jewish identity and the importance of connecting younger generations to the institutions and values that make up our community.”
Of course, nothing will actually happen, as people have a mental block where they are incapable of understanding what Jews are talking about when they say things like this.
Here’s the audio in question:
