CNS' Favorite Loopy Right-Wing Rabbi Rants Again

Loopy right-wing rabbi Aryeh Spero has continued to keep up both ends of that description for his column. In an April column, Spero purported to offer up "A Prayer for the Schoolchildren of America" that was little more than a litany of right-wing talking points:

Almighty God, in Your Scripture You declare: “I, God, Protect the Innocent”…not only the righteous, but especially the children. We American parents and grandparents therefore ask that You help us protect our children in school from malevolent forces trying to take away our children’s innocence by indoctrinating them to hate America, hate their American and Christian heritage, and to even hate their own race and skin color if they are White.

We ask that you help us stop those deliberately confusing children as to their natural God-given gender and forcefully pushing them to explore and even affirm sexual practices that are anathema to the innocence of childhood, that most precious and sacred phase of their life.

Lord, with all our heart we beseech you to help us, as your partner and agents, in protecting the children, the innocents so dear to you and your cosmic design. Do not allow the so-called “woke” to teach our children to despise themselves.

A June 22 column was a screed against liberal members of Congress forpurportedly not loving Israel enough, attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar in particular for allegedly having "engaged in trickeries to keep herself viable until her next round of defamation of Jews and calls for the destruction of Israel." His group, the Confrence of Jewish Affairs -- which may or may not be more than just Spero himself -- demanded that Omar be removed from committee assignments. Spero then lashed out a Democratic Jews in Congress:

Worse, only a handful of the many Jewish Democrat [sic] congressmen have been willing to condemn her anti-Semitism. They are following orders. Unfortunately, they are putting their careers and Democrat Party power above the safety of American Jews. Most of the Democrat [sic] Jewish congressmen and senators seem content to allow these anti-Jewish activities to continue rather than risk their career, though they are the first to display outrage when black, Muslim, Latino, or LGBTQ communities are perceived as being mistreated. 

Spero discredits himself by embracing the gramatically incorrect right-wing pejorative for the Democratic Party.

Spero spent his July 21 column ranting against Ben & Jerry's ice cream for deciding not to sell in the disputed West Bank, which Spero insisted on referring to "Judea and Samaria" in line with more right-wing language dictates: "Ben and Jerry’s punishment and ostracizing of Jews living in areas the Muslim world considers off-limits to Jews is an acquiescence to the infamous anti-Jewish theory called judenrein, namely that an area be formally free of Jews. Is that Ben and Jerry’s idea of social justice?" Spero might want to look up how Muslims in Israel are treated before he tosses around the "judenrein" smear any further.

An Aug. 23 column claiming to be "A Prayer to Save Us From Our Arrogant Ruling Clique" amid the Afghanistan was in reality yet another right-wing screed:

We wonder if our so-called “woke” culture that continually demonizes America has made us no longer value Americans.  But verily, American lives matter. 

Yes, we wonder if our “woke” culture ever so eager to defame the Judeo-Christian culture -- so essential to America’s founding -- no longer has the regard or will to defend an America founded on that Judeo-Christian outlook.

No longer believing in ourselves, we have been humiliated by those who, while rag-tag, at least have pride in themselves, their history, and their national peoplehood.

A nation with skewed, upside-down, and frivolous priorities eventually loses its sense of importance, its identity, and the will to defend its own.

Because it is ashamed of its past, it does not protect its future.

Spero used his Sept. 23 column to rant against the "Democrat Party" for not wanting to fund Israel's "Iron Dome" defense system:

Many Americans, including Christians of faith, are alarmed and concerned regarding this open hostility and demonization of Israel within a major political party here in America. No doubt they will condemn it. The $64,000 question is: Will liberal and "progressive" Jewish groups be alarmed enough to momentarily waive their loyalty to the Democrat Party so as to condemn this in-your-face anti-Jewish maneuver?

Spero didn't explain why Israel is unable to fund this defense system itself.
