IQ Tests For Congresscritters?

Doodad




Oops, she did it again. Ilhan Omar, that is. Fresh on the heels of "it's all about the Benjamins," she talked about dual loyalties. allegiance to a foreign country. That's two antisemitic tropes in quick succession in addition to the many other gaffes she has made previously. A pattern seems obvious. The woman is an antisemite to the bone. Even Pelosi and other high ranking members are getting ready to bring a resolution condemning antisemitism although it looks as if Omar will not be mentioned specifically. Obviously though, the resolution is in response to Omar's loose lips. Dems cannot afford to be seen as the party of antisemitism prior to 2020.

Generally, Progressives are supporting her; certainly her fellow newly elected peers AOC and Tlaib, Linda Sarsour, and most Kossacks. They give the usual suspect reasons; criticism of Israel is not antisemitism, etc. The most amusing rationale is that being a Somali Muslim immigrant, she does not understand what is wrong with what she is saying. Also, she is new to Congress and politics so she should be cut some slack. Hence my question: IQ Tests For Congresscritters? Or perhaps some minimum knowledge/training in what constitutes criticism of Israel and what constitutes antisemitism. I believe it is possible to criticize Israel without being antisemitic but I don't believe Omar and her cronies do that.

In fact, looking at how this has tracked in relation to the Labour Party's mess in the UK, I believe that what is really happening is a deliberate attempt to normalize antisemitism in the guise of AntiZionism. There is just too much evidence that this is what has happened in the UK and elsewhere. AntiZionist groups are rife with antisemitism and disingenuous defence of the perps.

Sooner or later, Omar and others must be censured before the Dems indeed become the party of antisemitism to an even greater extent than they already are. The ball is in their court and Pelosi's response while welcome is a dollat short and many days late.

    in The [Washington] Post, unless it’s to serve
    as the perennial victim — and this too is
    contingent on portraying Israel, and only Israel,
    as the oppressor.

    When Palestinians suffer at the hands
    of their leaders, the [Washington] Post
    is nowhere to be found.”

  2. Pelosi et al have delayed the vote to revise it to include anti-Muslim hate language supposedly because they didn't think it would pass otherwise. Cowards.

  4. Pelosi said today she doesn't think Omar's remarks were intentionally antisemitic. The mind boggles at that nonsense.

  5. Many brave UK Labour party members have quit the party over its antisemitsm. When will American Dems do the same? Heh. The correct answer is never. Were I on any committee with Omar on it I would walk out every time she entered the room until she was fired from said committee.

    1. Although the Democrats are worsening, there are reasons to believe many Democrats, especially Jews, will walk out.

      Remember how Jewish women left the anti-Semitic Women's March in droves.

      Another thing to ponder: Was Obama our Corbyn? Unlike Obama, however, Omar's anti-Semitism is being exposed. There might be a civil war in the Democratic Party; it might have already started. And it will help our pro-Israel president.

    2. Democrats have been worsening for years now, although some used to visit this site and refute that proposition. They would rather blame the KKK than than see the extremism that grew to adulthood among Democratic members of Congress. More is to come. What are the odds they will confront the reality among their brethren?

    3. oldschool,the prevailing line among Dems is that we should fear white supremacists over Omar because of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. Never mind that Omar et al are trying to normalize Israel hate which leads inevitably to Jew hate every time. Only a fool would not recognize that putting someone like her on the Foreign Affairs committee and keeping her there was anything but an opening volley in the move to attack Israel and weaken it. Omar is the perfect face of that movement since she naturally gets immunization because she is black, female and Muslim.

      Leftists have argued for years that there is no REAL left in the US. Omar et all are the 5th column inserted into the Democratic party. There is a plan and Pelosi/others are powerless to stop it. Stark, harsh action is needed to nip this in the bud but the Dem leadership has no backbone. Edward Smith points out the exodus of Jewish women from the Women's march. Only Jews can solve this because Dems won't sacrifice their increasingly Leftist base, Muslim haters, Black haters. Jexodus is a good start.

    4. It will need to be Jews with some backbone then. The kind that worry a lot less about being liked by their enemies or the left. Diasporic beggars aren't going to do the trick. Kumbaya will not save us. This little Mulima girl, Omar, has no qualms about what she is doing. She is working for Allah. She is working for "justice" for "Palestine". For her and her ilk winning means killing the enemy. Being dishonest is not a barrier.
      She didn't know what she was saying? That's a lie.
      She is only asking questions? Rhetorical questions are statements. She is making statements - pronouncements- not asking questions.
      She is a liar. She is an Israel hater. She wants Israel's destruction and replacement with something halal.
      AIPAC wields some gargantuan clout? These are Nazi style charges.
      The most moral army in the world is painted as the least.
      A country threatened by constant aggression is treated as the aggressor.
      The most democratic country in the region is labeled "apartheid".
      An incredibly humanitarian culture is painted as murderously racist on behalf of those who are murderous and racist.

      This is antisemitism.

    "Who Are We?

    We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left. Progressives, Democrats, and far too many old-school Jewish organizations take our support for granted. After all, we’re Jewish, and Jews vote for Democrats.

    Until today.

    We are determined and we are unafraid to speak for ourselves. As combatants and veterans of the campus wars, we know the threat progressivism poses to Jews. We’ve had front row seats witnessing anti-Semites hide behind the thin veil of anti-Zionism. We know the BDS movement harbors deep hatred not only for Israel, but for Jews. We’re done standing with supposed Jewish leaders and allegedly supportive Democrats who rationalize, mainstream, and promote our enemies. We’d rather spend forty years wandering in the desert than belong to a party that welcomes Jew-haters."

  7. Elizabeth Warren has accused Jews of "Chilling" Public Discourse" With False Accusations of Anti-Semitism. Bernie and Harris are defending Omar. Other front running Dems will follow, you can be sure. If Dems win in 2020, Israel and Jews are toast.

    1. This only proves Warren's weak character in the first place. By this point the "chilling public discourse" tactic has outed itself as an antisemitic trope.
      Pelosi says Omar doesn't know what she was saying.
      I say, Bernie Sanders doesn't know what he is saying. He should rejoin the commune, do some peyote and retire to one of his 3 'socialist' house. He is so far gone. It's Socialism uber alles for him.
      Harris I don't have a fix on. There might not be much there but raw ambition.

  8. Omar is female. Neutral
    Omar is a person of color. Ridiculous terminology, but still adds up to nothing intrinsically threatening.
    Omar is a devout Muslim. Okay. that makes it minimum 75% likely that she's an indoctrinated Jew hater/Israel hater. What the anti-Zionist left wants you to believe is that you are the worst racist in the world for noting that which is probable and obvious.
    Words of advice to Mrs. Pelosi, "Toto, we're not in Berkeley anymore."

  9. Pelosi says she believes Omar didn't know any better. What? Didn't know that lying about Jews is antisemitic? Didn't know that she WAS lying about Jews? Either way, what the heck is she doing on that committee?
    The Dems antisemitism problem finally comes to the fore. And they have no idea what to do about it. They could do the honorable thing, but forget about that.

    1. Just read it. Pathetic. Slobbering about neo-nazi bigotry, and did not see a word about what comes from progressives and Muslims that scapegoat Jews and Israel as almost a daily ritual.

    2. I couldn't get past the 1st paragraph. This has what to do with anti-Muslim discrimination? Antisemitism has what to do with anti-Muslim discrimination? In the very first paragraph no less?
      That's the playbook. No mention of discrimination against Jews unless you also mention bias against muslims too. But don't worry, you can mention discrimination against muslims at the hands of the Jews, which is what Omar was caught selling in the first place. No need for evenhandedness there.
      Anti-semitism and "anti-muslim bigotry" what ever constitutes the latter, are not twins.
      OMG! It's worse than I thought!
      "Whereas" does it ever mention attacks against Jews committed in the name of Islam by muslims, and/or, against gays, Christians, social workers, bridges, tunnels, buildings, the United States?
      I guess it's all good as long as we can hector the most moral army in the (history of the) world over all the "innocent babies" they kill.

  11. A blow was struck today in favor of antisemitism. Such behaviors only recede when they are not tolerated. It really is that simple. The Muslim woman of color spreads antisemitism. It was up to the Dems to see that she is called out and punished. They failed miserably. They are pathetic.

  15. There are between 5000 -8000 KKK members in the US. There are between 20,000 and 50,000 Nation of Islam members. Both hate Jews. Obviously, the KKK is a negligible threat. There are about 3.45 million Muslims in the US. No one knows how many hate Jews but common sense says many do. Assume 10% which is probably way low. That's 345000. So who are the biggest threat to Jews? Do the math, ignore the leftist propaganda.

    1. That number for NOI is from 2007. Any idea of current numbers?

      This short article, though not current, shows connections to Farrakhan among Democrats.

      Where are there any current equivalents under the demonized, racist, immoral Republicans, except perhaps for Steve King? Examples please?

      It's not just Democrats, as you know, but there's always those nice ladies at the Women's March.

      It's not just in Congress either, but the mosques.

  17. "There are several neo-Nazi groups in the United States. The National Socialist Movement (NSM), with about 400 members in 32 states,[195] is currently the largest neo-Nazi organization in the United States."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neo-Nazism#United_States

    One again, the numbers do not reflect the perceived danger contrasted with the hate among leftists; first for Zionism, then for Israel which leads inevitably to Jew hate as we know and see regularly.

  18. This is not to say we should dismiss the danger of neo-nazis and white supremacists. The issue is about rising Dem/Leftist antisemitism. It must not get the pass it so desperately seeks. Yet the Omar controversy (Labour party in UK) shows it does.

  19. David Duke has openly supported and defended Omar. This happened Feb 11th, 2019. I have seen not one bit of outrage from Progressives or the media. If this had been Duke defending a Republican...well we know what would have happened. Dangerous times.

    1. Omar is a snake. She is a con (wo)man and sleaze merchant. She slimed Eliot Abrams as supporter of massacres and genocide. She is scuzzy. And she complains about law and human rights while attacking the legitimacy of Israel, a country with no strategic depth surrounded by Arabs, aka Muslim Arabs, with loads of strategic depth who would destroy her yesterday if they only could. And these Arabs are taught daily to violate the human rights of Jewish Israelis whenever and wherever possible. And they do, and they do not accept Israel's quite legal existence. So there is no acceptance of Israel's sovereign rights and no acceptance of Israelis' civil rights or human rights. Not a problem for Ilhan Omar. And Omar does this complaining in a sleazy way, pretending to be asking questions when in fact she is making obnoxious one-sided statements filled with the bile of her own hate. And she does all this from the comfort and pulpit of the U.S. House of Representatives 18 years after 9/11 happened. And she does this as, in the 18 years since 9/11 over 34,000 terrorist attacks, each one an atrocity, have been carried out in almost 70 countries, in the name of her religion.

  21. News flash....Trump and Chelsea Clinton to blame for NZ attacks. You can't make this stuff up. 120 Christians killed in Nigeria by Muslims and nary a peep in the media. Angry white men are supposed/expected to act better than angry Muslims somehow? What does that say about Liberal views of Muslims? When a Muslim can accuse Chelsea Clinton of causing NZ attacks because Clinton opposed Omar's antisemitism and Clinton APOLOGIZES...a huge shark has been jumped.

      Muslim extremists killing and persecuting. Dog bites man. Happens all the time. All over the world. Not to mention that Muslims are persecuted more by other Muslims than anyone else. The surreal is real.
