Random Observation of the Day
I have noticed that if a political figure or pundit makes the observation that one political obstacle in changing our foriegn policies regarding Israel is the influence of the American Jewish population, then you are labled a “bigot” or “anti-Semite.”
However, if you make the observation that one political obstacle in changing our foreign policies regarding Cuba is the large Cuban population in Florida, you are labeled “Captain Obvious.”
I find the dichotomy interesting, because of course large populations of Americans with ties to a foreign country are going to have some influence towards our policies towards that country. So why is it okay to notice that some times and not others? After all, noting the imprudence of the Armenian Genocide Resolution doesn’t cause one to be labeled an “Anti-Armenian bigot”, even if you go so far as to note that the Armenian-American lobby had a lot to do with it.
