DeSantis Banned From New York’s Museum of Jewish Heritage
Will New York’s Governor Kathy Hochul also be banned?
By Ronn Torossian

According to the non-profit Tikvah Fund, the New York Museum of Jewish Heritage has banned Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis from the museum, per an editorial in The Wall Street Journal.

Tikvah is a “Jewish educational and cultural institution whose main activity in America is teaching young Jews about Jewish history and civilization.” It had planned to have DeSantis speak at their conference to “discuss how the ‘Florida model’ has contributed to the growth and vitality of Jewish life” in Florida.

Instead, they were told that “DeSantis didn’t ‘align with the museum’s values and its message of inclusivity.’” Conference leaders were told that either the governor could be disinvited, or the event would not be welcome at the museum, according to the editorial. The organization claims they were told by the CEO told that the museum doesn’t “do politics…whether left or right.”

Yet, this claim is factually inaccurate. The organization has hosted other politicians, including then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo and then-Mayor Bill de Blasio”, as well as Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who was a speaker there in 2018. Senator Schumer spoke there in 2019.

What none of these politicians are, however, is Republican.

A letter to the museum by Joseph Borelli, the Minority Leader of the New York City Council and New York City Council Member Inna Vernikov, a member of the Jewish Caucus of the City Council, noted that, “As a museum devoted to teaching the world about the horrors of the Holocaust, MJH is an institution with a deep understanding of the dangers of political censorship.”

They noted shock that the museum was “engaging in a form of “cancel culture”, prohibiting Florida Governor DeSantis, a duly elected government official representing 21 million people, including more than half a million Jews, from attending a Jewish Leadership Conference at the museum.”

Borelli and Vernikov further note that:

“…choosing to refuse entry to members of one specific political party is, in fact, playing politics. Matters such as the Holocaust should not be used as tools to promote a political agenda. The lessons of the Holocaust are innumerable, but one of the most critical ones is this: intolerance in any form, breeds hostility, suppression, and ultimately discrimination. For a Museum that aims to educate against these exact evils, I urge a swift reconsideration of the intolerant practice of banning a Republican Governor for simply holding differing viewpoints.”

Rightfully, these New York City Council members note that if this museum does not renounce this decision, they will urge others to stop financially supporting the institution.

Do donors to the Museum of Jewish History believe only Democrats should be allowed to speak? Or will New York’s Governor Kathy Hochul similarly be banned from New York’s Museum of Jewish History?

After the cancellation, Governor DeSantis’ office issued a statement stating: “Governor DeSantis has always been a steadfast friend of the Jewish people and the State of Israel,” praising the editorial by Abrams and Cohen regarding the “remarkable Jewish renaissance” happening in Florida under his leadership, and affirming that “We hope that this is all a misunderstanding, and the museum leadership will rectify the situation, because a Holocaust memorial should never be politicized.”

This decision must immediately be rescinded. Or Democrat New York politicians must also be banned from the grounds.

Freedom of speech shouldn’t be limited to Democrats. A call for comment to the New York Museum of Jewish Heritage was not returned.

For the life of me, I don't understand why NY Jews are overwhelmingly Demonrat voters. :doh If these pinheads are going to cancel Governor DeSantis over something as stupid as the organization is afraid of losing money because their Demonrat supporters don't want the Governor speaking there, then it's their loss. I wouldn't lose a moment of sleep about it if I were Governor DeSantis. It's the Demonrats who are the anti-Semitics, not Governor DeSantis. But then Demonrats and their voters don't have the ability to use reason and have absolutely no common sense whatsoever.

Yes, I am also puzzled as to why New York Jews tend to be pro-Democrat and anti-Israel.
A brief history lesson

On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York caught on fire while it was filled with impoverished Jewish workers, almost all of whom were women. Those workers were unable to leave the building because the emergency exits had been locked to prevent the workers from stepping outside for a smoke. One hundred forty-six garment workers died that day due to fire or smoke or jumping through windows several stories high down to the cold, hard pavement.

The Jewish community in NYC then exploded in outrage. New York was overwhelmed by demonstrations demanding reforms. The Jewish community joined the movement to unionize New York's garment industry, a movement that was strongly supported by the Democrats but resisted by the Republicans. The decision to do that was, of course, totally emotional. And those strong emotions became part of the American Jewish psyche. Democrats were presumed to be for the little guy, and Republicans were assumed to be rich, white men. The Jewish community (other than the Orthodox) and the Democrats became joined at the hip. The majority of Jewish families taught its kids to vote Democrat for justice for the little guy. Voting Democrat became a part of Jewish culture in America.

That Jewish emotional attachment to the Democrats has continued for generations even though most American Jews today have never heard of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. As time went by and the community became less religious, "progressive" politics replaced Judaism and God. Their new gods (idols, really) became Democrat leaders, and their new religion became progressivism.

Thank you. It makes sense now. I had heard of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, but not of the political aftermath. Again, thank you.

After 111 years and they're completely blind to the anti-Semitic Demonrats, then they deserve the government service they're getting. Frankly, I can't muster up any sympathy for anyone who'd intentionally support the Demonrats. :nope

The Jews have always been stubborn and hard headed. I still can't fathom how they worshipped a golden calf or how they rejected Jesus despite seeing it with their own eyes!
