Republican Ad Labels Lew Fidler A ‘Bacon and Eggs Kind of Jew’

bacon and eggs 2 Republican Ad Labels Lew Fidler A Bacon and Eggs Kind of Jew Oy.

With the next Tuesday’s vote in the special election to replace former State Senator Carl Kruger fast approaching, the latest advertisement, on the back cover of both Hamodia and the Flatbush Jewish Journal, quotes the Democratic candidate, Councilman Lew Fidler, in a way to cast doubt on his own religious convictions.

Quoting a 2008 article from this publication about the Jewish vote in the 2008 Presidential election, the advertisement leads, “Lew Fidler, who refers to himeslf as a ‘bacon and eggs kind of Jew.'”

The ad furthermore attempts to drive a wedge between Mr. Fidler and Orthodox Jewish power broker Assemblyman Dov Hikind, quoting Mr. Fidler saying, “Dov is guilty of looking at Jews monolithically. I don’t think he’s thinking of a Jew like me.”

The online versions of both ads do not directly say who paid for them, but the photo, style, and logo are basically identical to advertisements identifiably paid for by the Senate Republicans’ campaign operations.

The rest of the ad compares the positions of the Republican candidate, attorney David Storobin, to Mr. Hikind’s own conservative beliefs in order to associate the two together, though Mr. Hikind has not publicly endorsed in this race yet. Mr. Fidler previously ran his own ad associating himself with Mr. Hikind.

(On the front page of the Flatbush Jewish Journal is another scathing ad saying “Liberal Democrat Lew Fidler Wants To Teach Same Gender Marriage To 6 Year Old Children.”)

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
