Jews make up 2 percent of the US population, so Congress as a whole is more than thrice as Jewish as the country in general.

More than 6 percent of the new Congress is Jewish, with 34 Jews among the total of 535 lawmakers in the US House of Representatives and Senate.

Jews make up 2 percent of the US population, so Congress as a whole is more than thrice as Jewish as the country in general, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center on religion in the new Congress, which was inaugurated Thursday.
The number is even larger in the Senate, where eight of the 100 members are Jewish. That’s 8 percent, for the math challenged.

This Congress has four more Jews than its predecessor, which had 30 Jewish members. But it’s far from the most Jewish Congress ever. That was the 1993 Congress, which boasted 51 Jews — nearly 10 percent of the total.

All of the Jews in the Senate are Democrats, as are all but two in the House. The Republican exceptions are Reps. Lee Zeldin and David Kustoff, from New York and Tennessee, respectively. They are the only non-Christian Republicans in the Congress, according to Pew.

Congress as a whole is overwhelmingly Christian — even more so than the country. Seventy-one percent of Americans identify as Christian, compared to 88 percent of Congress. Both Protestants and Catholics are over-represented on Capitol Hill.

The most underrepresented group is unaffiliated Americans. Twenty-three percent of Americans don’t identify with a religion, but that’s true of just a sole member of Congress — new Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema. Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and Unitarians are also represented in Congress.

Stop your antisemitism!
We are not allowed to talk about the jewish overrepresentation in media and governments!

If you count the ones in Jewish pockets, you'll be looking at about 80%.
>>
>>336816
That's a pretty conservative number, I'd say it's into the 90's range

posted this in another thread that linked here, but oh well, that wasnt on-topic at the time anyway

>6 million percent
oy vey

seriously, though, 6 percent jewish constituents in congress doesnt seem like a lot at all. if jews are 2% of US population, and whites are 56% of the US population, then a better argument is why arent blacks a higher percentage of congress(an argument im not trying to make or would condone)? but out of those statistics i would say its not statistically relevant

especially, more important is >>336816 >>336844

Well It's actually quite simple when you think about it, and it's the same reason Jews are over-represented in Congress: The top positions of the US Government are dominated by rich guys. Jewish Americans are more often rich, and Black Americans are not. As of February, the total wealth of all members totaled 2.46 Billion. The medium minimum net worth of a member is $511,000, five times as much as the median net worth of an American household. 1 in 13 could be called a "1 percenter", 26 Republicans, and 17 Democrats. You want to know who rules you? Jewish or Christian, It's the people with enough money to get that power.

the retarded politicians who got duped by sacha baron cohen's "this is america" admitted they did as they were told because they were promised a "friend of israel" award. really makes you think

Who cares?

If a group of people congregrate in tight communities and happen to be majorities in just a few communities instead of being all spreadout, this is likely to happen...

Also, these are 9 times out of 10 just your average American jewish person who puts up Xmas lights and trees and is just otherwise a WASP.

>If a group of people congregrate in tight communities and happen to be majorities in just a few communities instead of being all spreadout, this is likely to happen...

Wrong. That would likely lead to a fairly normal representation, not three times as many. Besides the Jewish members of Congress are actually from fairly varied areas.
>>
>>337584
But they're all united in a common cause of jewish interests, from ensuring racial and ethnic diversity of the west to supporting Israel both directly and indirectly.

The average Jewish IQ is one standard deviation higher than the total, so for you to be as intelligent as the average jew, youd need to be more intelligent than 85% of the total population. It would make sense that jews are more represented in positions of power, such as congress and exectuive roles.

Intelligence does not equate to morality, ethics, or selflessness. If anything an intelligent conman is less desirable than an honest fool.
>>
>>337884
Agreed. However, the OP is referring to the overrepresentation of Jewish congressmen. Becoming a congressman has less to do with ethics and morality (as so far as getting other people to vote for you) as much as general intelligence.

Yeah, shut the fuck up Avi. The sooner the wretched parasites are purged the better.

What a thought provoking argument!

Why do you think your kind were forced into camps? You don't argue with a disease, the disease won't change because it is incapable of doing so. You're not interested in changing and won't, so there is no recourse left but eradication.

But you need none of those qualities to get rich, or to get political power.

>>337927
The process does not describe the candidates nor the reason why they are where they are, although democracy is cheaply bought.
>>337984
Sad but true, which is even more damning of these.
>>
>>338043
I'm sorry, would you care to elaborate?
Voting means that the most popular candidate wins.
There are many ways to approach a popularity contest, but ideally the way to win such a game would be to propose policies that would align with the interests of key supporters i.e. the majority of people.
There are also elements of charmisma, competence and leadership that a successful candidate needs to possess, because the opposition wont roll over so easily and let you win through good policies alone.
>>
>>337923
Yeah, that's what all politicians are. What's your point?
>>
>>338144
Sure US politicians serve special interest groups, but the difference is Israel is a foreign nation whereas say US steel or unions are American.

>implying israel keeping the rest of the middle east down isnt serving US interests
If you spend a minute to think aboit it, youll see why the US keeps certain relationships, particularly israel and japam
>>
>>338601
Israel doesn't keep the Middle East down for the US, the US keeps the Middle East down for Israel.

The Israeli creation of the Iraq War.

>A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm (commonly known as the "Clean Break" report) is a policy document that was prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Richard Perle for Benjamin Netanyahu, the then Prime Minister of Israel.[1] The report explained a new approach to solving Israel's security problems in the Middle East with an emphasis on "Western values." It has since been criticized for advocating an aggressive new policy including the removal of Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and the containment of Syria by engaging in proxy warfare and highlighting its possession of "weapons of mass destruction". Certain parts of the policies set forth in the paper were rejected by Netanyahu.[2][3]

>In the days after September 11, Mr Rumsfeld and his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, mounted an attempt to include Iraq in the war against terror. When the established agencies came up with nothing concrete to link Iraq and al-Qaida, the OSP was given the task of looking more carefully.

>"None of the Israelis who came were cleared into the Pentagon through normal channels," said one source familiar with the visits. Instead, they were waved in on Mr Feith's authority without having to fill in the usual forms.

>The exchange of information continued a long-standing relationship Mr Feith and other Washington neo-conservatives had with Israel's Likud party.

>The Israeli influence was revealed most clearly by a story floated by unnamed senior US officials in the American press, suggesting the reason that no banned weapons had been found in Iraq was that they had been smuggled into Syria. Intelligence sources say that the story came from the office of the Israeli prime minister.
