Democrats Have Trouble Turning The Page On Their Anti-Semitism Problem

It’s rather hard to turn the page when the Democrats didn’t actually, specifically condemn Ilhan Omar’s Jew hatred, nor all those who offered cover and protection for said Jew hatred

Dems struggle to turn page on Omar controversy

Democrats desperately want to turn the page on a painful week but doing so is proving to be difficult.

Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has been the center of a debate on anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred that has exposed deep divisions within the new majority, on Friday signaled she’s not going to stop battling on social media with her critics.

Less than 24 hours after the House adopted a resolution broadly condemning bigotry in the wake of Omar’s comments about U.S.-Israel relations, she launched into a Twitter battle Friday morning with Meghan McCain over the thorny topic.

Omar did so by retweeting a message from Mehdi Hasan, a columnist for The Intercept and a host of Al Jazeera English, that was deeply critical of McCain’s father, former Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who died last year.

“Meghan’s late father literally sang ‘bomb bomb bomb Iran’ and insisted on referring to his Vietnamese captors as ‘gooks’” Hasan wrote. “He also, lest we forget, gave the world Sarah Palin. So a little less faux outrage over a former refugee-turned-freshman-representative pls.”

President Trump also got into the act on Friday, seizing on Omar’s remarks and the House resolution — which to the dismay of several veteran Jewish Democratic lawmakers changed from a measure condemning anti-Semitism to one that condemned many kinds of hatred — to argue that Democrats had become an “anti-Jewish” and “anti-Israel” party.

If GOP bigwigs aren’t ready to bring up Democrat protection of anti-Semitism in 2020, you can bet that Trump won’t forget and will make sure that voters will remember.

And then there was Nancy Pelosi, who probably never thought she’d have to deal with the crazies in her own party

On Friday, she defended Omar for a second day in a row, arguing she is not anti-Semitic.

“I think she has a different experience in the use of words, doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning,” Pelosi said of the Somalian-born Omar, who came to the United States in 1995 after years in a refugee camp in Kenya.

She’s been here for 24 years. Was her assimilation that bad? Is she still living in the Jew hatred world of radical Somalia? She’s almost 40. If she’s so ignorant, should she be sitting on the Foreign Affairs Committee? What Pelosi is saying is that Omar is anti-Jew, she just doesn’t know how to express it in terms that don’t expose her being anti-Jew.

Omar, Andre Carson (D-Ind) suggested, isn’t about to alter her aggressive messaging style.

“On one end, we know that there are members who are going to be free, they’re going to candid, they’re going to be fearless in their approach to getting their message out,” he said. “There are other folks who are going to be more measured and pragmatic, and I don’t think we’re in a place to condemn one methodology over the other.”

In other words, she has no problem hiding her Jew hatred, and expect more to come.

    Finally the Democrat-Communist Party has acknowledged as policy what we all knew was true for years: They are antisemitic. Now that wasn’t so hard was it, Nancy? You have a party made up of sexual perverts, anti American/Jew/Christian Mohammadans, communists and socialists who want to Make America Venezuela, gun grabbers, anti free speech totalitarians and don’t forget now Official Anti Semites in charge. Wow. What happened to that party? Oh, Obama happened, that’s what.

    Now the House of Representatives voted 407-23 in favor of the Democrats’ revised, anodyne resolution condemning all forms of bigotry (except anti Jewism). As Scott has noted, Nancy Pelosi retreated to this meaningless resolution because many House Democrats weighed in to support (yes, they supported it) Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism. Faced with a rebellion in the ranks, Pelosi backed down. She now denies that the resolution had anything to do with Omar. That’s laughable as it was the whole object to begin with.

    The patent absurdity of this lie makes it all the more humiliating that she was forced to tell it. Only because Nazi Pelooza no longer runs her party. Omar and Occasional-Cotex do.

    That is quite a change from the long-ago days (less than a month ago, actually) when Pelooza and Majority Leader Stinky Hoyer issued a statement saying, among other things, “Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive.” The Democratic Party leadership’s climbdown is complete: [yesterday], as predicted, Omar voted for the resolution that began life as a censure of her anti-Semitism.

    What a party of azzholes. Figures Elwood would be in it. Jew hatin’, white hatin’, Christian hatin’, America hatin’ Elwood fits right in.

      Kye,

      So you too are obsessed with me!! What is it with the Cesspoolians?

      Don’t hate Jews, whites, Christians or America. Even you might agree that America and Americans are not perfect, including whites, Blacks, Christians, atheists, Muslims, Jews, Hispanics etc. Criticism of the dominant culture (white, Christian, capitalist) in America is not hatred. (Disclaimer: I’m married to a white Christian woman, most of my friends and colleagues are white, many are Christians, some are gay, many are conservative, some voted for Trump, one is a former Dem politician, one is a conservative atheist, all are capitalists…).

      Do you think American capitalism is perfect or is it possible our economic system could serve more Americans better? (Disclaimer: I’m a proud capitalist.) Does it make me a hypocrite that I advocate that people like me pay more taxes so that the less fortunate can more fully appreciate the American dream?

      All wealthy Dems advocate that their tax rates go UP! All wealthy GOPhers are always angling for tax cuts.

        Harvey, it would seem, is a legend in her own mind. All Kye said was Demos are bigoted and you are the perfect example.

        Don’t hate Jews, whites, Christians or America.

        Then why is is all you have is hate? And phony science?

        Criticism of the dominant culture (white, Christian, capitalist) in America is not hatred.

        The ever-popular “Some of my best friends dodge. The way you hate white people, who here do you think is going to buy you’re married to a white woman? And whom do you think buys the idea all your friends, if you have any at all, are capitalists?

        Hard-core Lefties like you hate capitalism.

        Do you think American capitalism is perfect or is it possible our economic system could serve more Americans better? (Disclaimer: I’m a proud capitalist.)

        It serves most people just fine. You want socialism.

        Does it make me a hypocrite that I advocate that people like me pay more taxes so that the less fortunate can more fully appreciate the American dream?

        You’re a hypocrite because you say something in one comment and contradict your self in the next. And that’s when you’rte not outright lying.

        Welfare is not the American dream. Independence is.

        All wealthy Dems advocate that their tax rates go UP! All wealthy GOPhers are always angling for tax cuts.

        Then why are so many of them leaving NJ, NY, CA? Why did so many leave MA?

        And, if you mean the ones like Buffett, you’re talking about people who own enough of Congress to make sure they have plenty of loopholes in the tax code for their army of high-powered lawyers and accountants to exploit.

          Look at you, obsessed with me too! You only comment about me! How flattering! And you have so many pet names for me too.

          Have you ever had an original thought, LOL?

      • Kye says:

        “All wealthy Dems”? Indeed, you are a liar as you don’t nor can you speak for all wealthy Dems. You can barely speak intelligently for yourself.

        I don’t think capitalism or anything else is perfect so stop the ad absurdum stupidity. Our American economic system serves ALL Americans at the level they are willing to apply themselves to it. It’s the stupidity of the left and their “money for not working” crowd that hurt Americans, not opportunity. If the left is going to steal away people’s desire to accomplish things by bribing them not to work the whole thing will collapse eventually. Which it is in the process of doing right now.

        BTW, I believe you’re as much a capitalist as I am a Mohammadan, and you have as many “conservative” Trump voting friends and colleagues as you do friends and colleagues from Mars.

        Criticism is not hatred, Elwood. Hatred is hatred and you are a hater. You hate America. It comes out when you write. I don’t know if it’s deliberate or if you can’t help it but it’s there for all to see. I also don’t think you’re black. In fact, you’ve proven to be such a liar I’m not even sure you’re an American. You sound like a self hating white Canadian.

    “All wealthy Dems advocate that their tax rates go up.” Nobody ever accused them of being smart, J. But at least you don’t use over-generalized statements…And as far as we know, none of these wealthy Dems are sending the government extra money, either

    The Democrat-Communists better reign this Muslim idiot in or everyone will see the corruption, lies and oppression that is the New Democrat-Communist Party under the Ocasional-Cotex/Omar/Tlaib ruling Triumvirate. Racists, bigots, heathens, homos….what a party! Ant they can all thank Obama Bin Soetoro. (the half breed, half Muslim, half American, ALL communist phony)

    “Rookie Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, fresh off igniting an intra-party uproar with comments widely viewed as anti-Semitic, took a swipe at former President Barack Obama, saying in an explosive interview the 44th president’s message of “hope and change” was a “mirage” and blasting his administration’s drone and border detention policies.

    Omar, D-Minn., took aim at the president’s famed slogan, while further criticizing the Democratic Party for “perpetuating the status quo,” in the interview with Politico.

    “Recalling the ‘caging of kids’ at the U.S.-Mexico border and the ‘droning of countries around the world’ on Obama’s watch,” Omar charged that Obama “operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor,” the piece reads.”

      Occasional Cortex and Hell’s Harem will run the Demos into the ground next year, just like the hippie dippy types did in ’72.

      You’re going to see history repeat like a broken record.
