Who’s assimilated now?

DovBear has a post about a modern Orthodox rabbi who, in a rather intemperate attack on Obama voters*, seems to be channeling Rush Limbaugh.

It seems to be rather ironic that frum Jews, the ones who brag about not being assimilated, seem to be taking on the worst prejudices of white working-class America- an obsessive fear that poorer, browner Americans are taken advantage of them.   What about all that tzedekah stuff that’s in the Torah? 

 

*A category that, I hasten to add in the interests of full disclosure, does not include myself.  I voted for Romney, partially because I thought he was the least objectionable Republican nominee since Bob Dole, and that the Republicans ought to be rewarded for this.
