The Democrats have a big problem.

It’s not the constant talk of impeaching Trump and the multiple investigations run amok, although those are problems, too. It’s not the apparent failure of the Mueller investigation to find “collusion” between Trump and Russia. Their huge new problem is the revelation --- shocking!! --- that a lot of Democrats are…

...PREJUDICED!!

Think about it --- THE most important thing to them is diversity: of race, ethnicity, gender/sexual orientation (57 at last count), religion (or lack thereof), country of origin, citizenship status, economic status, language skills, everything. Everything, that is, except for people who are…

Jewish. Jews bad. Or if not Jewish, even just supporting Israel, because Israel bad. We don’t know how many Democrats harbor these feelings, but a few of the far-lefties have been quite vocal about it. And the issue of whether to permit anti-Semitism in their ranks is dividing Democrats. Freshman Minnesota Rep. Ilhab Omar, one of the first two Muslim women ever elected to Congress, can’t seem to stop herself from making anti-Semitic remarks and now faces the possibility of censure. But House Democrats have so much discomfort with even mildly censuring her point of view –- let alone singling her out by name –- that they are trying to come up with an alternative, in the form of an extremely broad-based condemnation of bias-in-general that takes the focus off Omar’s anti-Semitism.

Fellow Democratic Congressional newbies Alexandria “you-just-pay-for-it” Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida “impeach-the-MF” Tlaib of Michigan, who at one time wrote a column for Louis Farrakhan’s Nation Of Islam newspaper, helped lead this move.

To reference what Victor Davis Hanson observed on Wednesday, if everything is bias, then nothing is bias. Remember, Democrats have traditionally run on the idea that Republicans are racist and generally prejudiced against anyone unlike them, while Democrats are inclusive, tolerant, free of racism. In congratulating themselves for being bias-free, they risk injury from patting themselves on the back so hard.

But this week, they are showing that to be a bunch of hooey, by hesitating to stand up to the bigots in their own party. Many, perhaps most of them, in the interest of party “unity,” refuse to single out a Muslim for her anti-Semitic remarks. They can’t even seem to get “unified” about a resolution that condemns anti-Semitism in general unless it includes an obligatory protection for Islamophobia. The irony here is that the Democratic Party itself is displaying Islamophobia, as it is afraid of condemning things being said about Jews because a Muslim is saying them. I’ll bet that if you turned it around, they would be afraid NOT to sanction anyone who dared speak disparagingly about Muslims.

As Newt Gingrich said on Wednesday’s “Hannity” show, “There’s a deep anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli bias on the left. There are a lot of people on the left who’d be very happy if Israel disappeared tomorrow, and who feel 100 percent on the side of Hamas even while it’s firing rockets at Israeli cities.”

Twelve pro-Israel groups are calling on House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi to remove Rep. Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. (How did this freshie get assigned to that prestigious committee in the first place?) The head of the committee, Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, who is Jewish, has called what Omar said “a vile, anti-Semitic slur” but said on Wednesday that he would not support removing her. And Pelosi, apparently terrified of the power of a few outspoken newcomers, has said that Omar’s tweets were not “intentionally anti-Semitic.” Really?

As I’ve always said, to find out what Democrats are doing, listen to what they’re accusing Republicans of doing. It’s like the old saying, “When you point a finger at somebody else, three fingers are pointing back at you.” Democrats are NOT inclusive, NOT tolerant, and many of them ARE anti-Semitic. Certainly they hesitate or outright refuse to support our strong ally and the one Western-style democracy in the Mideast, Israel.

Just look on the typical college campus to see how inclusive and tolerant they are of any other point of view. If they are “triggered” by any opposing viewpoint, the debate is shut down and they are protected from any challenging thought. And as for ethnic bias, look at the characters who took control of the Women’s Marches, such as Linda Sarsour, who is aligned with terrorist groups and advocates for female genital mutilation while blaming the “Jewish media” for the negative press she’s received. That organization is now being led by people so openly anti-Semitic that many Democratic women have publicly distanced themselves.

The internet has been affected, too. As Tucker Carlson reported on Wednesday, Amazon (which totally dominates the worldwide book market) has banned a book by British activist Tommy Robinson because it is “critical of Islam.” That’s not just the new books –- even second-hand sellers are banned from selling it. Facebook shut down Robinson’s page, and he was banned from YouTube. Tucker pointed out that books critical of Christianity abound, and the classic liberals of old would have been horrified by these attempts at censorship.


Commentary continues below advertisement


Also, keep in mind that these are media empires, so the effect filters throughout media to the culture as a whole. The Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos, didn’t even cover the Robinson book ban. Leftists may as well pile “unapproved” books in the center of the town square and light a match, as this is really the same thing.

And as long as we’re talking about prejudice on the left, I thought we weren’t supposed to judge people by their skin color any more. Isn’t that what Democrats have always accused white Republicans of doing? Well, sadly, this still happens, but the focus on skin color comes from the left. According to Daniella Greenbaum Davis of “The Federalist,” the casting of Will Smith as Venus and Serena Williams’ father has come under fire because his skin is not dark enough to play that character. He is black, of course, but he doesn’t LOOK black enough. Have they thought about putting him in blackface?

The controversy even got picked up by the BBC…

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47468011?fbclid=IwAR2sqhBAv88HVwqqtoY3-kBTrcT51m1BUhxm0CsSfrv8cz0_bQMWr4CgPng

The Democrats are so obsessed with identity politics that they can’t seem to see how racist it is and how racist THEY are by focusing on it. If we were actually racists, they wouldn’t have to go to the trouble of faking hate crimes, such as Jussie Smollett’s ridiculous fraud involving rope and bleach. We on the right are the ones who don’t care about such differences. (As brilliant economist and commentator Thomas Sowell says, “I have the feeling that many Americans would just as soon not hear any more about race.”)

We don’t think about who is Jewish, either, in terms of ethnicity or religion. But we can look around and see that others care, a lot. Others on the left. Mark Steyn has a great piece on anti-Semitism, pointing out that “it’s getting pretty crowded at Jew-Hate Junction,” starting with the Islamization of Europe (“an alliance of the secular left and Islam”) and progressing to a similar alliance here in America, particularly in our new Democratic Congress.

“The House leadership just backed down,” Steyn writes of the power struggle with Omar. “...It cannot even insist on its anti-Semitic bona fides without weaseling and equivocating.” And in that he sees “a glimpse of the future.”

In other words, right now the Democrats have a big problem, but it increasingly will be everyone’s.

    It was nauseating to watch Nancy P. on TV today spinning the remarks made by Omar. I do not; and never will, understand why it is ok to trash, criticize, and kill Christians, Jews, all non Muslim religions but NOT Muslim/Islamic extremism and anyone who practices it. And what the extremists do to women and children tells me the Left really does not care about all women and their rights. This woman is a symptom of what is going on in Minneapolis, I am from Minnesota and my former state has been ruined. I cannot and will not tolerate the rise and take over of Muslim extremists and Sharia law.

    I am posting my comments here so that you can discern for yourself..... Remember that Islam is ??% INCOMPATIBLE with the US Bill of Rights and Constitution.

    Everything you believe in being a westerner is totally contrary to their thought, understanding or experience is totally unrelatable to Islam. Read their Koran to learn what they are, though Arabic doesn't translate exactly but you'll get the idea. Islam IS a violent cult devoted to the absolute and total conquest of the world by ANY means available to it. You either accept Islam and Sharia law or they will kill you. That is fact. It is not now nor has it ever been a religion in it's 1438 years of existence. Taqqyyia, which someone mentions is 'the lie blessed by Allah' and is expected of every Muz to all kafir (unbelievers) as well as to each other when necessary. Their communication always contains - Deceive, Deny, Delay & Deflect as nothing is ever true other than 'I kill you' and that's fact. The are FORBIDDEN to take any oath to anything other than Allah so those just installed in Congress lied, of course - taqqyyia - so that all stupid Americans would think them sincere. My customary greeting to a Muz would be 'adhhab tabaa nafsak' ..... There are no non-jihadi or moderate Muslims so I hope that helps your personal understanding. I am only part of the group called Americans and cannot speak for others. I personally dumped ME WE right after it started. Gab has outstanding people of different backgrounds and each has their opinion.

    With all of the evidence pointed toward the Democrats being anti-Jew against the Jewish people and Israel, I find it very puzzling as to why many American Jews sill support the Democratic party. What is up with that ? Several Jews are members of Congress. All as far as I know are Democrats. How can they go along with all the anti-Semitism being promoted and not really speak up firmly against it. Instead they put out watered down, flimsy responses. I stand with Israel and the Jewish people. I am a Christian and I stand with Israel and our Jewish friends.

    What I seem to read often is democrats accusing Republicans about something THEY (the democrats) would do because it's snarky, illegal, anti-whatever de jur, just because they do these things does NOT mean the Republicans would even consider doing. What I read is not necessarily about the Republicans doing or not doing the nefarious stuff the democrats come up with, they are AFRAID it might happen, and want to nip it in the bud. And, yes, Republicans in general just sit meekly in their chairs or their offices, hiding out so they don't have to confront the Democrats. There has been more push-back in the last 2 years, probably being given a little more spine after seeing the President not just letting the democrats run the show. It might be too little, too late. It would certainly help if more openly supported President Trump instead of either sitting by, or, in some instances, being as obstructionist as any far left democrat (just not as vocal.) I'm sure they just hate it that We The People chose a non-politician as President-something we have needed all along. It sure makes more sense to me for a successful businessman to be at the head of our country than a community organizer. And, that does seem to have been his forte (obama)---organizing people into factions and promoting divisiveness--not really positive attributes for being President of the US of A. Maybe politicians are upset that Donald Trump doesn't have to answer to any lobbyist, and the lobbyists are threatening politicians to withdraw money if they support the President in anything.

He claimed that Muslim's are loving people and he thought they should be living in our country. He was a muslim himself even though he said he was a christian we know he was not. How could Americans be so crazy to vote for these people and now they have the Democrats as their followers. What happened to the Democrat party who believed in God and worked for the American People not for illegals and Muslim's . There is no FDR, Harry Truman, JFK anymore the party is full of the Clinton's and Obama's and Carter's . I am praying for Jesus to come again and soon.

    I believe the Democrats are so obsessed with identity racism because that is how a tyrany whether it be communism, socialism or any other ism needs to divide our country in order to take over. They can never attack the individual or that gives them no edge. If America is united and there are no separate groups we could not be conquered by their garbage lies they spew.

What I read is not necessarily about the Republicans doing or not doing the nefarious stuff the democrats come up with, they are AFRAID it might happen, and want to nip it in the bud. And, yes, Republicans in general just sit meekly in their chairs or their offices, hiding out so they don't have to confront the Democrats. There has been more push-back in the last 2 years, probably being given a little more spine after seeing the President not just letting the democrats run the show. It might be too little, too late. It would certainly help if more openly supported President Trump instead of either sitting by, or, in some instances, being as obstructionist as any far left democrat (just not as vocal.) I'm sure they just hate it that We The People chose a non-politician as President-something we have needed all along. It sure makes more sense to me for a successful businessman to be at the head of our country than a community organizer. And, that does seem to have been his forte (obama)---organizing people into factions and promoting divisiveness--not really positive attributes for being President of the US of A. Maybe politicians are upset that Donald Trump doesn't have to answer to any lobbyist, and the lobbyists are threatening politicians to withdraw money if they support the President in anything.

    Democrats are so hell-bent on destroying the President, that they seems willing to destroy the country in the process, in order to rebuild it in their image. To them it’s a win-win.

    I am praying so hard to our Heavenly Father to protect or President and his family and our Vice President and his family. There is so much evil in our world and since they have not been able to rid the White House of these Christian Men they have voted into office people who can destroy America from within as we were told during the Bush administration and since Obama as President , who also has tried to destroy us . He claimed that Muslim's are loving people and he thought they should be living in our country. He was a muslim himself even though he said he was a christian we know he was not. How could Americans be so crazy to vote for these people and now they have the Democrats as their followers. What happened to the Democrat party who believed in God and worked for the American People not for illegals and Muslim's . There is no FDR, Harry Truman, JFK anymore the party is full of the Clinton's and Obama's and Carter's . I am praying for Jesus to come again and soon.

    I believe the Democrats are so obsessed with identity racism because that is how a tyrany whether it be communism, socialism or any other ism needs to divide our country in order to take over. They can never attack the individual or that gives them no edge. If America is united and there are no separate groups we could not be conquered by their garbage lies they spew. So we all need to reach out to each other and by all means keep praying.

    Do they dare address the whole Congress & accuse the hate mongers of Anti-Semitism & condemn them in no uncertain terms. No of course not, they might appear as ungentlemenly ang hurt someone’s feelings. What a bunch of pussies

    All I see is end times in this. Come Lord Jesus.

The Democrats have a big problem.

It’s not the constant talk of impeaching Trump and the multiple investigations run amok, although those are problems, too. It’s not the apparent failure of the Mueller investigation to find “collusion” between Trump and Russia. Their huge new problem is the revelation --- shocking!! --- that a lot of Democrats are…

...PREJUDICED!!

Think about it --- THE most important thing to them is diversity: of race, ethnicity, gender/sexual orientation (57 at last count), religion (or lack thereof), country of origin, citizenship status, economic status, language skills, everything. Everything, that is, except for people who are…

Jewish. Jews bad. Or if not Jewish, even just supporting Israel, because Israel bad. We don’t know how many Democrats harbor these feelings, but a few of the far-lefties have been quite vocal about it. And the issue of whether to permit anti-Semitism in their ranks is dividing Democrats. Freshman Minnesota Rep. Ilhab Omar, one of the first two Muslim women ever elected to Congress, can’t seem to stop herself from making anti-Semitic remarks and now faces the possibility of censure. But House Democrats have so much discomfort with even mildly censuring her point of view –- let alone singling her out by name –- that they are trying to come up with an alternative, in the form of an extremely broad-based condemnation of bias-in-general that takes the focus off Omar’s anti-Semitism.

Fellow Democratic Congressional newbies Alexandria “you-just-pay-for-it” Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida “impeach-the-MF” Tlaib of Michigan, who at one time wrote a column for Louis Farrakhan’s Nation Of Islam newspaper, helped lead this move.

To reference what Victor Davis Hanson observed on Wednesday, if everything is bias, then nothing is bias. Remember, Democrats have traditionally run on the idea that Republicans are racist and generally prejudiced against anyone unlike them, while Democrats are inclusive, tolerant, free of racism. In congratulating themselves for being bias-free, they risk injury from patting themselves on the back so hard.

But this week, they are showing that to be a bunch of hooey, by hesitating to stand up to the bigots in their own party. Many, perhaps most of them, in the interest of party “unity,” refuse to single out a Muslim for her anti-Semitic remarks. They can’t even seem to get “unified” about a resolution that condemns anti-Semitism in general unless it includes an obligatory protection for Islamophobia. The irony here is that the Democratic Party itself is displaying Islamophobia, as it is afraid of condemning things being said about Jews because a Muslim is saying them. I’ll bet that if you turned it around, they would be afraid NOT to sanction anyone who dared speak disparagingly about Muslims.

As Newt Gingrich said on Wednesday’s “Hannity” show, “There’s a deep anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli bias on the left. There are a lot of people on the left who’d be very happy if Israel disappeared tomorrow, and who feel 100 percent on the side of Hamas even while it’s firing rockets at Israeli cities.”

Twelve pro-Israel groups are calling on House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi to remove Rep. Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. (How did this freshie get assigned to that prestigious committee in the first place?) The head of the committee, Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, who is Jewish, has called what Omar said “a vile, anti-Semitic slur” but said on Wednesday that he would not support removing her. And Pelosi, apparently terrified of the power of a few outspoken newcomers, has said that Omar’s tweets were not “intentionally anti-Semitic.” Really?

As I’ve always said, to find out what Democrats are doing, listen to what they’re accusing Republicans of doing. It’s like the old saying, “When you point a finger at somebody else, three fingers are pointing back at you.” Democrats are NOT inclusive, NOT tolerant, and many of them ARE anti-Semitic. Certainly they hesitate or outright refuse to support our strong ally and the one Western-style democracy in the Mideast, Israel.

Just look on the typical college campus to see how inclusive and tolerant they are of any other point of view. If they are “triggered” by any opposing viewpoint, the debate is shut down and they are protected from any challenging thought. And as for ethnic bias, look at the characters who took control of the Women’s Marches, such as Linda Sarsour, who is aligned with terrorist groups and advocates for female genital mutilation while blaming the “Jewish media” for the negative press she’s received. That organization is now being led by people so openly anti-Semitic that many Democratic women have publicly distanced themselves.

The internet has been affected, too. As Tucker Carlson reported on Wednesday, Amazon (which totally dominates the worldwide book market) has banned a book by British activist Tommy Robinson because it is “critical of Islam.” That’s not just the new books –- even second-hand sellers are banned from selling it. Facebook shut down Robinson’s page, and he was banned from YouTube. Tucker pointed out that books critical of Christianity abound, and the classic liberals of old would have been horrified by these attempts at censorship.

Also, keep in mind that these are media empires, so the effect filters throughout media to the culture as a whole. The Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos, didn’t even cover the Robinson book ban. Leftists may as well pile “unapproved” books in the center of the town square and light a match, as this is really the same thing.

And as long as we’re talking about prejudice on the left, I thought we weren’t supposed to judge people by their skin color any more. Isn’t that what Democrats have always accused white Republicans of doing? Well, sadly, this still happens, but the focus on skin color comes from the left. According to Daniella Greenbaum Davis of “The Federalist,” the casting of Will Smith as Venus and Serena Williams’ father has come under fire because his skin is not dark enough to play that character. He is black, of course, but he doesn’t LOOK black enough. Have they thought about putting him in blackface?

https://ricochet.com/601791/the-woke-always-eat-their-own/

The controversy even got picked up by the BBC…

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47468011?fbclid=IwAR2sqhBAv88HVwqqtoY3-kBTrcT51m1BUhxm0CsSfrv8cz0_bQMWr4CgPng

The Democrats are so obsessed with identity politics that they can’t seem to see how racist it is and how racist THEY are by focusing on it. If we were actually racists, they wouldn’t have to go to the trouble of faking hate crimes, such as Jussie Smollett’s ridiculous fraud involving rope and bleach. We on the right are the ones who don’t care about such differences. (As brilliant economist and commentator Thomas Sowell says, “I have the feeling that many Americans would just as soon not hear any more about race.”)

We don’t think about who is Jewish, either, in terms of ethnicity or religion. But we can look around and see that others care, a lot. Others on the left. Mark Steyn has a great piece on anti-Semitism, pointing out that “it’s getting pretty crowded at Jew-Hate Junction,” starting with the Islamization of Europe (“an alliance of the secular left and Islam”) and progressing to a similar alliance here in America, particularly in our new Democratic Congress.

“The House leadership just backed down,” Steyn writes of the power struggle with Omar. “...It cannot even insist on its anti-Semitic bona fides without weaseling and equivocating.” And in that he sees “a glimpse of the future.”

In other words, right now the Democrats have a big problem, but it increasingly will be everyone’s.

    This is a follow up comment to my morning statement
    Perhaps the Jews in the Republican Party as well as the Democratic Party should rewatch the movies “Exodus” to refresh their memories about what it took the People of Israel to achieve their own Jewish State.

    It was nauseating to watch Nancy P. on TV today spinning the remarks made by Omar. I do not; and never will, understand why it is ok to trash, criticize, and kill Christians, Jews, all non Muslim religions but NOT Muslim/Islamic extremism and anyone who practices it. And what the extremists do to women and children tells me the Left really does not care about all women and their rights. This woman is a symptom of what is going on in Minneapolis, I am from Minnesota and my former state has been ruined. I cannot and will not tolerate the rise and take over of Muslim extremists and Sharia law.

    Mike,

    If one could get elected President by expressing clear-thinking in strong, straightforward language, you would be a shoo-in. Thank you for calling out my former party on their Amit-Semitism, and for once again taking up the cause of a small minority group that it has become fashionable to bash.

    I remain a huge fan,

    I think too many Americans have become inured to the wickedness and immorality that is the hallmark of the Left, who remind me of Stalin's Soviet Union, where death and destruction was used to eliminate anyone who stood in the way of their evil ideology.
    This will not end until people repent of their wicked ways and turn their faces back to God.

    I am posting my comments here so that you can discern for yourself..... Remember that Islam is ??% INCOMPATIBLE with the US Bill of Rights and Constitution.

    Everything you believe in being a westerner is totally contrary to their thought, understanding or experience is totally unrelatable to Islam. Read their Koran to learn what they are, though Arabic doesn't translate exactly but you'll get the idea. Islam IS a violent cult devoted to the absolute and total conquest of the world by ANY means available to it. You either accept Islam and Sharia law or they will kill you. That is fact. It is not now nor has it ever been a religion in it's 1438 years of existence. Taqqyyia, which someone mentions is 'the lie blessed by Allah' and is expected of every Muz to all kafir (unbelievers) as well as to each other when necessary. Their communication always contains - Deceive, Deny, Delay & Deflect as nothing is ever true other than 'I kill you' and that's fact. The are FORBIDDEN to take any oath to anything other than Allah so those just installed in Congress lied, of course - taqqyyia - so that all stupid Americans would think them sincere. My customary greeting to a Muz would be 'adhhab tabaa nafsak' ..... There are no non-jihadi or moderate Muslims so I hope that helps your personal understanding. I am only part of the group called Americans and cannot speak for others. I personally dumped ME WE right after it started. Gab has outstanding people of different backgrounds and each has their opinion.
    I'd be happy to discuss this with you personally if you like. Rebecca

    With all of the evidence pointed toward the Democrats being anti-Jew against the Jewish people and Israel, I find it very puzzling as to why many American Jews sill support the Democratic party. What is up with that ? Several Jews are members of Congress. All as far as I know are Democrats. How can they go along with all the anti-Semitism being promoted and not really speak up firmly against it. Instead they put out watered down, flimsy responses. I stand with Israel and the Jewish people. I am a Christian and I stand with Israel and our Jewish friends.
