Just A Little Reminder About Saint FDR….

FDR to Stalin: “I Would Give Saudi King 6 Million Jews” | FrontPage Magazine

I said to the President someone told me that Mrs. Hull was a Jewess, and I said that the Jewish-Catholic issue would be raised [if Hull was nominated for president, and Farley, a Catholic, was his running mate]. He said, “Mrs. Hull is about one quarter Jewish.” He said, “You and I Burt are old English and Dutch stock. We know who our ancestors are. We know there is no Jewish blood in our veins, but a lot of these people do not know whether there is Jewish blood in their veins or not.”

While liberal Jews worshiped FDR, this is what he really thought of them.

The first Quick in America, Theunis Thommazen Quick, arrived in New Amsterdam in 1630, a good ten years before the first Roosevelt, Claes van Rosenvelt, straggled ashore. At one point my ancestor owned most of the ground on which Wall Street now sits.

So I look down my patrician Old New York Dutch nose at these crass newcomers, and sneer at their pathetic antisemitism.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. My family legends have it that my people met your boats, and taught you how to plant corn.

    That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it, even though I am pasty white and don’t have high cheekbones.

    About FDR… That goes some in explaining why he married his cousin. Keeping up the family purity and whatnot.

    The Wiki article on Eleanor is interesting. Apparently, the bastard started cheating on her in 1918, if not before. Paragon of virtue, he was.
