Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a Congressman from Florida and the Chairman of the Democrat National Committee. This makes her one of the most powerful politicians in the USA.
She is also Jewish, and has always placed Judaism at the forefront of her politics. She is active in the National Jewish Democratic Council, which has a stated goal of promoting “Jewish Values” in the Democrat party.
However, now she is under fire by the left for attacking Jewish intermarriage and assimilation. Audio was posted online from a speech Schultz gave to the Florida branch of the Jewish Federation on January 16th, 2015 (INCOG: audio recording below “continue reading” button).
Schultz says Jews “have the problem of assimilation. We have the problem of intermarriage.”
Wasserman Schultz was in the media a few days ago for attacking far-left cable new outlet MSNBC. While most on the left think MSNBC is great, she accuses them of being biased against Israel.
Schultz has received mild criticism from the left. If a leading Republican had attacked any kind of intermarriage, he would have been crucified in the media.
