NJDC In Hot Water Over Bubbe Ad

The NJDC is finding itself mired in controversy over the advertisement they’re running here on Jewschool which is otherwise making its way around the web. The JTA asks,

[D]oes “Bubbie,” a cartoon Jewish Democrat who knocks Republicans into oblivion, cross a line in a campaign season that already has seen pitched advertisement battles in the Jewish community?


“I find this to be absolutely vile, offensive and repugnant,” said Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition. “The only positive thing that can come out of this effort is that it will now turn off far more people to their work and to their efforts than it would attract people.”

No word from Brooks yet on Sinclair Broadcasting comparing Democrats to holocaust deniers though, eh?

Leave it to Uncle Abe to be the, ahem, voice of reason:

“I’m saddened, disappointed and offended,” said Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. “It pits Christians against Jews, it uses stereotypes we should know better about projecting.”

Ah yes, because evangelical Christian Zionists are entirely a fiction.

Go Bubbe, go!
