Ilhan Omar’s latest “wrong turn” came when she said that pro-Israel advocates have allegiance to Israel. It’s an old trope. One that rubs plenty of Jews the wrong way regardless of political party. And just the latest of Omar’s antisemitic remarks. It is a problem that has put Nancy Pelosi at odds with her caucus.
Politico reports a growing divide between the New New Democrats and the Old New Democrats over the issue. It has gotten so bad that at a recent caucus meeting Pelosi literally dropped the mic and left the meeting.
Can You Hear Me Now?
The Left is having communication issues with itself. And the overall effect is that whatever statement hits the floor for a vote will not be about Omar’s antisemitism. Politico’s reporting suggests it will be some watered-down generic resolution stating that “we as a party oppose hate.”
No, you don’t. But everyone grab a coke and smile until Omar opens her mouth again. And she will.
And we’ll do this all over again because the young socialists and their social justice narratives are smearing a dirty diaper across the Caucus windshield. No one can see where to go so no one should expect any progress because Omar is a person of color.
Hate Blind Instead of Color Blind
Everyone of color in the Democrat caucus is reluctant to take a stand against Omar publicly because as we all know you are supposed to judge people by the color of their skin not the content of their character. Right Bizarro-world Martin Luther King Jr.
Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men. God forbid the men are upset – no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.
For years, when members of Congress have spewed blatant anti-Muslim racism, islamophobia, propaganda against Muslims and even held racist hearings with our tax payer dollars, Democratic leadership were never swift to condemn said members or put out resolutions condemning islamophobia and/or standing in solidarity with Muslims on the record in Congress.
Sarsour is calling for a generic resolution against all bigotry. Does that include her own? Or does her color give her an antisemitism pass too? It does.
Divided They Will Stay
Personally, I could care less what color you are, what sex you claim, or what religion you follow if any. I don’t even care much what party with which you are registered. What you say and do are what matter. Principles matter. Defending the constitutional Republic matters. Everything else is a diversion.
And the House Democrats are diverted, and a bit divided. All thanks to Ilhan Omar and her antisemitism. A problem that is neither new nor likely to go away any time soon but that will become increasingly more public.
The New New Democrats are not hiding what their party has become. And like young people who know everything they refuse to listen.
