Daylin Leach In His Own Words

Daylin Leach In His Own Words — State Sen. Daylin Leach has taken issue with our claim that he implied the Republican Party was the party of anti-Semites during a July 16 Democratic Party rally for Barack Obama at  Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park, Pa.

Here is the relevant part:

I want to say a word or two about domestic policy because Israel is extremely important but it’s not the only issue, and again because of my name and because I don’t think I  necessarily  look particularly Jewish people don’t know I’m Jewish often and so I hear things that I would not hear if I was more obviously Jewish.  And I’m keenly aware that while we have made great progress, anti-Semitism is still alive and well in parts of America.

And it’s important that we have a president of the United States who understands the importance of protecting religious minorities and the importance of fighting for the separation of church and state.

And it’s particularly important these days because I’m going to be honest the modern Republican Party has become something that it was not when I was a young man growing up which is a largely theocratic party.

Here is some advice Senator: Apologize, move on and, in the future, refrain from smearing groups of people for political gain.
Btw, if you were to propose that the Shema be recited to start the day in public schools very likely most Republicans — at least those you accuse of anti-Semitism — would support you. It’s the denial of God and the 10 Commandments that upset them, not the Old Testament.
Hat tip Bob Guzzardi.
