DUDE, IT'S 2016, NOT 1936; JEWS ARE WHITE NOW:

The utter nastiness of Ted Cruz (Dana Milbank, February 5, 2016, Washington Post)

At an event in New Hampshire, Cruz, the Republican Iowa caucus winner, was asked about campaign money he and his wife borrowed from Goldman Sachs. Cruz, asserting that Trump had "upward of $480 million of loans from giant Wall Street banks," said: "For him to make this attack, to use a New York term, it's the height of chutzpah." Cruz, pausing for laughter after the phrase "New York term," exaggerated the guttural "ch" to more laughter and applause.

But chutzpah, of course, is not a "New York" term. It's a Yiddish -- a Jewish -- one. And using "New York" as a euphemism for Jewish has long been an anti-Semitic dog-whistle.

Cruz's 2016 strategy focuses on turning out white voters (STEVE PEOPLES, 2/05/16, Associated Press

Ted Cruz has mapped out a path to the White House that all but ignores the explosion of minority voters in America.

The Texas senator's general election strategy depends almost wholly upon maximizing turnout among millions of conservative white voters - mostly evangelical Christians and the white working class - who didn't participate in the last presidential contest.

Just what we need, a leader whose goal is to shrink the party.
