I was very disappointed to see the essay from the writers who claimed, and may well be, former citizens of Eastern European countries arguing against Jewish voters supporting the alleged “socialist” program of the Democratic party published in the Journal four days before the election.
I could easily dispute the claims made in the piece, particularly when the terms socialist or socialism are never defined. In addition, the authoritarianism they fear is most visible in the actions of Trump and his party comrades.
I think the reputation of the Journal for editorial impartiality and political independence, especially in this highly partisan environment, suffered.
