When the Democrat US Representative – a Congresswoman from Minnesota – referred to the “Benjamins”, she likely had in mind, Queen Victoria’s most revered British PM Benjamin Disraeli.
I don’t see anything wrong with that. No need for her later, to apologize!
Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli was the founding father of the British conservative party. Winston Churchill worked hard to emulate Benjamin Disraeli as a Prime-Minister.
Benjamin Disraeli was also the architect of the British Empire. Disraeli arranged for Britain’s acquisition of the Suez Canal through a loan guarantee he arranged with the assistance of the Rothschild Brothers.
And yes, Benjamin Disraeli was the first Prime Minister in the UK from a minority ethnicity. And yes, of Jewish ancestry. Nothing Benjamin Disraeli did to apologize for. God Save the Queen!
Oh, every now and then there are other noteworthy Benjamins.
Benjamin Herzl was the ideological author of Zionism. Oops, some don’t like Zionism. My condolences.
Then there is Benjamin De Rothschild that some may not like. I can understand – it’s because he is young and successful in his financial business…. It’s called jealousy of the successful.
The real Benjamin that many folks like to hate is… Prime-Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Well, he is Prime Minister through democratic elections.
