Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) may be bringing Nazi back, but her Democrat party colleagues aren’t letting it go without some strong-ish words. After their new progressive leadership balked at condemning anti-Semitism, the Dems finally settled on the language of a resolution which mentions the Jews 7th among groups facing hate speech. Omar wanted them ranked lower, but the only group left was straight, white guys.
As the House Democrats lined up to protect Omar from any consequences for being a rabid anti-Semite, observers couldn’t help but note the last time a party calling for more government defended rabid anti-Semites, that party ended up making more government = building Auschwitz.
Among the excuses offered in defense of Omar’s hate speech: That she’s from a different culture, and was unaware that her beliefs are bigoted. They’re going with "a 37 year old who has lived in the US for 25 years, and had the intellectual wherewithal to successfully run for Congress, was unaware that anti-Semitism is frowned upon in this establishment." She’s an overly-sheltered idiot. Just what we need on the House Foreign Relations Committee.
If the Democrats have learned anything from this debacle, it’s not “anti-Semitism is bad.” In fact, Ocasio-Cortez is using it to raise money. In a new mailer, AOC grubs for cash by warning against a Jew-led conspiracy. According to Ocasio-Cortez, the Jews “are coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida.” Chiquita Khrushchev needs the money to keep them from poisoning the wells.
Gotta give Omar credit, though. Her hatred of Jews has earned endorsements from professional bigots David Duke and Louis Farrakhan. Uniting those two garbage piles in one dumpster! I feel like they might be taking this whole “intersectional” thing a little too far.
Coming just days after their endorsement of Ocasio-Cortez’s insane “Green New Deal,” the Democrats’ decision to back Omar casts a pall over the leadership of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In the weeks since she retook the gavel, the Democrats have gone from Clapback Nancy to Chiquita Khrushchev and the anti-Semites in short order. Forget “passing the baton,” it’s the passing of the hammer and sickle.
Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced today that he has decided against running for President. In a related story, Senator Sherrod Brown is a person, and was considering running for President.
Rumors of the demise of 2-time Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s ambitions, however, appear to have been exaggerated. The doddering never-was, whose earlier remarks indicated an end to her quixotic quest, now says she hasn’t “closed the door” on another run. But that’s only because she can’t reach the door from her Hoveround™. Besides, being President would cancel out eating the early-bird special at the Kountry Kitchen.
According to former President Barack Obama, “We left office without a scandal.” Eric Holder, Jon Gruber, Lois Lerner, Ayatollah Ali Khameini, and Raul Castro released a joint statement in support of the assertion: “That checks out.” Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith & Tyrone Woods were unavailable for comment.
