On May 21st, 2013, American Vice-President Joe Biden did something that American Renaissance Jared Taylor has never done -- he named the Jew big time. Speaking at the Jewish Heritage Month reception of the Democratic National Committee held at the American Institute of Architects building in Washington DC on May 21st, Biden credited Jewish people in Hollywood for changing the culture of America, saying that Jews are responsible for 85 percent of America’s changing attitude on homosexual marriage. Furthermore, Biden praised Jews for playing leading roles in the fight for open borders, feminism, and social justice. Biden also praised Jews for playing a leading role in getting the Civil Rights Acts passed that resulted in affirmative action policies and special privileges for minorities. Biden concluded that Jews were one of the biggest factors, if not the single biggest factor, driving social change in the United States.
Specific quotes attributed to Biden:
"I believe what affects the movements in America, what affects our attitudes in America, are as much the culture and the arts as anything else".
"It wasn't anything we legislatively did. It was 'Will and Grace,' it was the social media. Literally. That's what changed peoples' attitudes. That's why I was so certain that the vast majority of people would embrace and rapidly embrace" gay marriage".
"I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it's in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good".
"The truth is that Jewish heritage, Jewish culture, Jewish values are such an essential part of who we are that it's fair to say that Jewish heritage is American heritage. The Jewish people have contributed greatly to America. No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you."
Politico recorded more quotes:
“You make up 11 percent of the seats in the United States Congress. You make up one-third of all Nobel laureates. So many notions that are embraced by this nation that particularly emanate from over 5,000 years of Jewish history, tradition and culture: independence, individualism, fairness, decency, justice, charity. These are all as you say, as I learned early on as a Catholic being educated by my friends, this tzedakah.”
“You can’t talk about the civil rights movement in this country without talking about Jewish freedom riders and Jack Greenberg. You can’t talk about the women’s movement without talking about Betty Friedan” or American advances in science and technology without mentioning Einstein and Carl Sagan, or music and Gershwin, Bob Dylan and so, so, so many other people.”
“So I think you, as usual, underestimate the impact of Jewish heritage. I really mean that. I think you vastly underestimate the impact you’ve had on the development of this nation. We owe you, we owe generations who came before you".
Biden also said that Jews have also been key to the evolution of American jurisprudence, namedropping Brandeis, Fortas, Frankfurter, Cardozo, Ginsberg, Breyer, and Kagan.
Reaction: New York Magazine acknowledges the truth of Biden's words, but is uncomfortable with them because Stormfront jumped all over the story. Occidental Dissent and the Vanguard News Network Forum also weighed in. American Renaissance is ignoring the story so far.
On Free Republic, a number of Semitophiles are protesting that not all Jews support gay marriage, and that Orthodox Jews remain committed to traditional marriage. Many commenters on The Blaze are publishing similar pro-Jewish apologia, although one person wrote the following:

Just more proof from the horse’s mouth that the Jews are responsible for the decline of America. Whether it is Jewish banksters like Goldman-Sachs and corrupt Jewish politicians like Barney Frank causing economic depressions, or Jewish-owned TV networks encouraging abnormal and anti-social behavior, or Jewish amnesty groups opening our borders to the Third-World, they are always at the core of the problems. And here they even admit that encouraging abnormal behavior like homosexuality and imposing it on society is a major goal of Judaism.
Perhaps we should make Joe Biden an honorary member of Stormfront, although I an NOT suggesting that Biden is a crypto white nationalist.
