Jew-Hatred in the Democratic Party
It's growing day by day, and it's being ignored day by day.
Let's be frank. It doesn't support the values of a jihadist-loving individual who seeks to demolish fundamental American values. Harsanyi further explains:
The writer David Steinberg identified 105 news stories written in the immediate aftermath of Omar's victory, and not a single one mentioned her belief that Jewry possessed mind-control abilities or that Israel was 'evil.' No one called on the Democratic party to distance itself from this rhetoric.
Now, it isn't inherently anti-Semitic to be critical of Israeli political leadership or policies. ... But Omar used a well-worn anti-Semitic trope about the preternatural ability of a nefarious Jewish cabal to deceive the world. ... Omar had a chance to retract, or at least refine, her statement. Instead, she doubled down. 'These accusations [of anti-Semitism] are without merit,' she claimed, blaming Jewish Islamophobia for the backlash. Omar even wants the U.S. to normalize relations with the Holocaust-denying terror-state of Iran[.] ... Omar's defenders will claim she's anti-Israel, not anti-Jewish. 'Anti-Zionism has been the preferred justification for hatred of Jews in institutions of education and within progressive activism for a long time. Now it's coming for politics. Democrats can either [refuse to accept it], or they can remain silent.'
It has become clear that many American Jews have substituted liberalism for their religion, and, as Raymond Domanico writes, "American Jews are fervent proselytizers for every "ism" – feminism, environmentalism, pacifism, redistributionism[.] It's not just that Jews can't distinguish their political friends from their enemies, or that Jews consistently promote non-Jewish values. Far worse, this reflex liberalism compels them to take positions adverse to their best interests."
But the handwriting has been on the wall, unconcealed and unashamed. There are Congressional representatives who are working to undermine the country and in the process use the powerful and dangerous prejudice of anti-Semitism. There is no disputing this; their words and their associations speak for themselves.
What will progressive Jews and the media enablers do when the Jew-hatred in the Democratic Party become too loud to ignore? Blame the Jews? We'll see.
