Jews have a Scorpion on Their Backs

[June 4, 2024]  We’ve all heard the fable of the Frog and the Scorpion.1  The main lesson from the fable is that people cannot resist hurting others even when it is not in their interests.  This is why I believe Jews have a scorpion on their backs.  That scorpion is the rabid anti-Semitic faction within the Jew’s own leftist Democrat Party.

There is no denying the upsurge in antisemitism promulgated throughout the world, explicitly raising its ugly head in America, mostly on college campuses.  Where once freedom of speech was a closely held value in college, there is now an outpouring of “from the River to the Sea” leftists who want all Jews to die.  They believe that Palestinians are occupied by a Nazi-like Israeli military machine that willingly kills innocents in an unjustified war.

The anti-Semites either deny the history of October 7 when Hamas attacked innocents in Israel and captured many hostages, or the attack was justified because of the Israeli “occupation” of Gaza.  Of course, both of these positions are nonsensical.  Yet, when this radical ideology captures a person, the Woke nonsense consuming the Democrat Party, they will not see the world as it is.

The Jews are “swimming across the waters” to reach a safe and prosperous place to live in peace with other like-minded people.  They are the frog in this fable and voluntarily carry the scorpion.  The anti-semites want to go where the Jews are headed, as well, to their promised land buy without Jews.  The anti-Semites are the scorpion in the fable.  The problem for the Jews should be obvious, but they cannot see that by carrying along the anti-Semites, their fate is sealed.


  1. Synopsis: A scorpion wants to cross a river but cannot swim, so it asks a frog to carry it across.  The frog hesitates, afraid that the scorpion might sting it, but the scorpion promises not to, pointing out that it would drown if it killed the frog in the middle of the river.  The frog considers this argument sensible and agrees to transport the scorpion.  Midway across the river, the scorpion stings the frog anyway, dooming them both.  The dying frog asks the scorpion why it stung despite knowing the consequence, to which the scorpion replies: “I am sorry, but I couldn’t resist the urge.  It’s my character.” – Wikipedia, accessed June 3, 2024

    Indeed, an interesting take on this fable. I think the fable is ingenious. American Jews do have a scorpion on their backs and that is the Democrat Party.

    Thanks Gen. Satterfield. I hope you develop this idea a little further. There is merit here. Please expand on the idea more in the near future.

    Hmmmm, I will have to think about this article for a while before I make any intelligent comment. But, I wanted to note that there is another element of the US Democrat Party / Liberalism that needs to put into this frame work. And that is the violent BLM and Antifa faction that destroys becuase of the same ideology that “all who are oppressed are good and righteous” and “all who are oppressors are evil” mentality. 👀

      Good point, Vanguard. Are the BLM and Antifa activists also riding on the back of the Jews?

    A good start with this article that gets at why Jews in America are so attached to the Democrat Party. “Why Are So Many American Jews Politically Liberal?”
    According to this article, Jews are more ‘liberal’ than Democrat Party. Here is a quote that starts to answer the question, Why are so many Jews with the Democrat Party, “With good reason, Jews identified anti‑Semitism with the right. This accounted for their interpretation of Nazism as a right‑wing, reactionary movement, despite the fact that the word Nazism stood for National Socialism. In addition, they attributed the rise of Hitler to the economic and social dislocations caused by the Great Depression. A society that provided good housing, jobs, unemployment insurance, health care, and educational opportunities would, they believed, be more immune to anti‑Semitic demagogues. Liberalism was thus a bulwark against anti‑Semitism.”

      I got that Willie, just I can’t understand today why it matters at all.

      Jews tend to view politics in terms of social and economic redemption rather than as an opportunity for personal advancement.

        Whatever its origins, liberalism remained a major component of American Jewish identity after 1945. The most eloquent postwar defense of Jewish liberalism was Leonard Fein’s 1988volume Where Are We? The Inner Life of America’s Jews. Fein, the founder of Moment magazine and former professor at Brandeis University, wrote this book at a time when Jewish liberalism was under increasing attack from Jews. Viewing assimilation as unfaithful to American and Jewish tradition, but cognizant that less than ten percent of American Jews observed the traditional commandments of Judaism, Fein argued that only a commitment to economic justice “can serve as our preeminent motive, the path through which our past is vindicated, our present warranted, and our future affirmed.”

    INTERESTING OUTLOOK. There is something to be learned here but I’m not so sure it is the idea that Jews in America are carrying the anti-semites on their back. I think they are pro- Democrat Party because they get plenty of rewards directly from the Democrat Party, while the Republicans are willing to give handouts. Just a thought.

      Could be, or the Jews here simply cannot see antisemitism until they are faced with it directly. All the other behavior by the college “to the sea” crazy students to them is just talk and no action. But there is action.

      1. Jerome Smith

        Eric, I simply cannot see how the Jews can be part of a political party that doesn’t have their best interests at heart. American Democrats hate Jews. Simple. So why do they rabidly stay with the Democrats. Something is going on there and I don’t understand it.
