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.

    I am saddened that our country’s children will have no hope for a future here on earth due to islam and democrat ideology! I am sickened by th archaic filth and disgusting treatment of our innocents, children, veterans, elderly, and general population. Our government is seemingly run by perverted pedofiles, bloodthirsty satanists, power monger narcissists, murderous loud mouth vote seekers intent on taking over and enslaving us in a supposively civilized world supported by lobbyists, people who call themselves journalists and NWO philosophies. Our downward spiral is topped by young angry people taught by extreme radicals to purge morals in a dangerous free for all society who holds nothing back, has so sanctity for life, dumbed down by technology; lacking the most basic skills due to the lack of parenting or over parenting, neglect, alcohol or drugs. Our privacy, homes, lives, freedoms, and guns are being taken away at a pace too fast to recoup! We, our families, our innocents and veterans are being crippled and poisoned, mentally and physically; by gmo’s, pesticides, fake foods, inoculations, use of fetus materials, wastes, hate groups, muslims, ellected officials, movie stars, tv and the press! We are being invaded by countries that we pay to hate us and gladly use our generosity to destroy us! Thankfully, We have a few good and tireless moral human beings we elected working for us that are a God send and we are forever grateful! However, will it be enough? Is there time left to turn around this nightmare? Only God can save us now! He surely is slow to anger and I look forward to His coming more than ever!

    On the Revelation thing, some say we're Babylon. Mystery Babylon of Revelation's sometimes thought to be our most important city, since a nation can be represented by its chief city, but other than that, I haven't seen anything said about us in prophecy, besides the lion with eagle's wings. Somebody said England's the lion and we're the eagle's wings because of national symbols.

    It is noteworthy that a statement voted on by the House was changed to condemn "hate" against additional groups such as Hindus and Muslims, but left out CHRISTIANS, who have experience more bias than other groups lately (especially Christians who take the Bible seriously.)

    So the House is going to come out against hate. Wonderful! They will, of course, include Catholics in this protected group. And Christian bakers. And pro-life activists. And conservatives. And.... aw heck. Let’s include all Americans! How about that idea, legislative Lemmings?

    I can understand the animosity for the Jews from the Middle East but why from Americans/Democrats? Did we learn nothing from WWII? As a Christian who has been grafted into the Vine of the Jewish Nation, why such hatred for God's people?

    I am not a Bible scholar by any means but all the classes and lessons I have had on Revelations from either preacher/scholars or SS teachers seem to come to the same conclusion when talking about the armies of the last days. Many speak of the "RED army" as being China and the talk of other nations or ethnics but no one has ever said that in trying to interpret Revelations that America is thought to be in any of the coded scriptures. Therefore, do we conclude that America is no more when the Lord returns and could it be that she turned away from Israel? The Jews are the chosen people whose linage Jesus came through. If they are the chosen people/nation and we turn away from them as our new anti-Semitic political leaders are pushing for, does America fall. Maybe there is a religious scholar out there to ponder this question. I certainly do not have the answer but I do have the questions??

    I wonder if the Muslim Congress members should be trusted with issues that are important to national security. Are they sending information to radical Muslims? They hate Jews and those who support Israel....that is me! With their radical mind set I am inclined to believe they are likely to support our radical enemies before they support America.

    There are several petitions circulating to remove Ilan Omar from the committee where she would carry out her anti-Semitic, anti-Israel prejudices and then to be "relieved" of her Congressional seat. I encourage others to find these and sign them. Israel has been a stable democracy in the unstable Middleeast, surrounded by hateful enemies calling repeatedly to wipe her off the face of the map. Omar has revealed her heart by her words and shows us clearly she is a danger to the US, to the Jewish people, to the values we hold dear and US international relationships. Shame on the Democrats for protecting and excusing her!! They expose just how incapable they are of doing the right thing.

    Mr. Huckabee, why do the conservatives/Republicans which I am proud to be let the Democrats constantly get away with not policing there own. If one of us in the Congress or Senate made statements like Omar Ilhan the Dems would be calling for the head of the conservatives on a platter. The Dems would have that person banned from committees and brought to public shame. Yet Omar does not even get named in the resolution against Anti-Semitism and she holds her position on the foreign affairs committee. Why do the Republicans let the Democrats walk all of them? They seem to have no backbone for a fight or the guts to support Mr. Trump. If we don’t get our stuff together we could go down in flames for 2020. Nancy Pelosi is somewhat vulnerable right now and losing control of the socialist wing of the party. Republican Congressmen and Senators need to fight for this country and stop letting the Dems walk all over them. Thank you for all you do. Roger Stewart

    Mike, I so enjoy your comments and agree with many of the comments that I read today. All I can say is, knights of the realm must unite and stand up for the USA. Make it a crusade if necessary but stand up against the evil that is oppressing us today. I stand ready to join in the ranks at 72 and fight with every breath I take. A muslim person should never be allowed to be a part of congress, the senate, the DOJ, the FBI, the CIA, nor any US military much less president again. One non citizen muslim has already been in the position and divided the USA in a way that we may be unable to come back peacefully from. I truly hope that it does not come to that but as I said earlier, I am ready to stand up against socialists and or muslims.

    I have commented before about Omar from Minnesota we have a large community of muslims in Minneapolis and other communities with significant numbers. The point is we have an attorney general that loves louis farrakhan Keith Ellison u may remember him from the democratic party a co chairman look at this Omar farrakhan endorsed and probably spoke to her how and why does she hate Jews look no further than farrakhan she grew with the Islamic brotherhood I wonder if that organization might be a terrorist group its not what I call a United States fit. The laws they live by are not our laws.

My question is why did I not see or feel what the left is trying to creasote. I went 1200 hundred miles and the garbage the left is throwing at us is simply another lie. These impelcials from the left need to dry up and blow away what a waste of time

    In the new rules about antisemetism, so many things were left out. Anti religion, anti catholic and other religions, anti statue destruction because they don’t believe in the United States. I don’t think I saw anything about religious freedom. What are they going to do with universities And anti free speech and what about farakahn ‘if that is how you spell it”. The people who go to his functions and believe all his words. Is he to be held accountable? His sermon about anti terminate pertaining to the Jewish community. There Is so many things that could be included! We may have to become democrats to get more things included. Maybe stronger democrats and republicans.

    I'm with Thomas Sowell. I am weary of being played by the fringe elements of society. I have friends of different races and I am a brother in Christ with many of them. I'm tired of those who pit one against the other w/o a shred of verification. They do this to benefit themselves politically, economically, or simply love being a false teacher. Reminds me of HRC speech in Selma recently. Did she remind her audience that the "racist and white supremacist views" to which she made reference, grew from HER party? Did she attempt to make amends or create more strife? Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers..." May all those who sow the seeds discord find the way, the truth, and the life. Amen.

    mental illness is rampant in the dems. Projection is everywhere and all the time. They don't have the maturity to face their obvious sins of bias. Muslims should NOT be in Congress OR in the US. They have but one intent; to destroy America and they are open and vocal about it. It's time we woke up to the truth. Dems want what Muslims want; the utter destruction of America. this is a war and we need to act like we are at war.

    What most people seem to forget is when a Muslim is anti-Semitic and in the case with Israeli this should come as no surprise. However, what is over looked is that Muslim's and their religion are anti-Christian and anti all other religions as I understand it. The radicals can and will kill all non-believers or force you to convert to Islam. The Muslim women elected to the House must be anti-Christian but avoid saying that because they don't want to create a fire-storm in this country.
