Many are upset at the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party for taking away Rep. Greene’s committee assignments for her disgusting hate-filled statements. They point to the fact that Rep. Ilhan Omar wasn’t punished for her anti-Semitic statements in 2019. That is true, but the 2019 incident was much worse than most realize. In the case of Omar, the Dems had a condemnation lined up but couldn’t make it happen because of opposition within the caucus. Rep. Greene hypocrisy.
The Democrats were ready to pass a non-binding resolution condemning Omar’s hate speech. But the Congressional Black Caucus and other far-left Democrats fought against the resolution. As a result, Nancy Pelosi had to cover up that her party lacked the backbone to publicly oppose Antisemitism. Therefore they passed a weak resolution having little to do with Jew-hatred.
Some Democrats did take a stand–but those who took a stand took wrong stands. For example, Rep. Clyburn, who is in the number three position in the House Democratic caucus used the outrage about Omar to trash Holocaust victims, and Jerrold Nadler thought the outrage about Omar was just “Right-wing tactics aimed at advancing their agenda by distracting and dividing those committed to equality and social justice.”
The lack of Democratic Party concern about the Jew-hatred within their own party continues to be ignored by the MSM and the party’s leadership. The hate spewed by Marjorie Taylor Green was awful, but I don’t know anyone in either party who didn’t think her comments were reprehensible. I believe her written comments made before she took office should have been condemned by the House, and her committee assignments left in place. But in this case, because the offender was a Republican, the Democrats wanted more. Notice they didn’t react to newly elected Senator Warnock from the same state as Rep. Green, who made statements about Israel that were anti-Semitic along with hatred about other groups.
Do you think the 2nd Amendment will be destroyed by the Biden Administration?
Each of those politicians disgusted me, but neither’s hate speech generated the same visceral reaction as the Democrats’ refusal to condemn Rep Omar’s antisemitism. Below is the cry of pain the Democrats have renewed, as expressed via a March 2019 post called:
To be honest, it more than hurts. It’s created a pit in my stomach that won’t go away. I am usually able to separate my emotions from the goings-on in DC, but this was different. I am terrified of the future. It wasn’t a political loss. It was a statement by the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party-led House of Representatives announced that my wife, my two kids, myself, and the other 6,850,860 Jews living In the United States do not matter.
Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made her second anti-Semitic declaration in the past month. To address her hatred, the spineless Democratic Party leadership couldn’t muster the courage to stand up to Omar’s Antisemitism. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is a bad thing. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. Omar and the other anti-Semites in the Democratic Party celebrated, an indication that they took the vote as a sign that Jew-hatred is okay.
The Democratic party already rejected different types of hatred even when it isn’t even there. If someone calls the terrorism coming from the radical Islamic community radical Islamist terrorism, they are branded by Democrats as Islamophobic. Those who disagreed with the policies of President Barack Obama, they were branded as racist. But that same party, the Democrats, refuse to recognize Antisemitism. It hearkens back to the days when FDR allowed about 200,000 Jews to die in the Holocaust because he believed there were already enough Jews in America.
If you believe that the message of this resolution is all hatred is terrible, you are naïve. My first article warning that the Democratic party was becoming anti-Semitic was posted on January 29, 2007. Eleven years later, the party’s Antisemitism had metastasized and infected much of the party. The message the Democrats sent with their feckless resolution is that the party is embracing the Antisemitism that has affected the party, and they do not care about Americans who practice the Jewish faith.
Why don’t the Democrats and their protectors in the mainstream media believe Jewish people matter? Jews have served in every American war. We’ve served the country in government, in charitable organizations. Jews pay taxes, we teach our young to love this country. I have never been in a synagogue in America that did not display Old Glory. The Jewish community fought harder for civil rights more than any other American ethnic group, except African Americans.
I love this country that took in my grandparents when they were fleeing from the Cossacks in Odessa. Only in America did they have the opportunity to get a decent job, feed their families, and practice their faith. But now, a member of the Democratic Party has questioned my loyalty to this country, and they refuse to censure her. Are they saying the country that welcomed my family 125 years ago no longer welcomes us? After yesterday’s vote, it feels that way.
Liberal commentators are protecting the Democrats. For example, on Fox and Friends, the day after the vote, Juan Williams claimed that most Jews don’t really mind Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitic statements. He claimed it’s really all about the Republicans trying to divide the Democratic Party and added that the only people who care about Omar’s remarks are the Evangelical Christian supporters of Israel.
Juan, I will make you a deal, if you don’t speak for the Jews, I promise not to speak for the leftist Black commentators working for Fox who don’t give a rat’s arse about the Jews.
Before Omar’s latest Jew-hatred, I’ve tried to reach out to Juan Williams about the Democratic Party’s growing’ Antisemitism’ because he has refused to acknowledge the hatred on TV. I’ve even sent him long letters sending him examples of his party’s hatred with links to the sources. But Williams, who has more than once declared a racist comment as” hurtful,” has never responded. Does he not believe that Jews don’t have human feelings? They can’t feel hurt by anti-Semitic statements?
Many Jews, including yours truly, are more than hurt by the rash of Antisemitism. We are terror-stricken.
According to the FBI, almost 60% of the hate crimes in 2017 based on religion were against Jews. Per the ADL, Antisemitism in the US is growing substantially. Anti-Jewish incidents increased by 57% in the US in 2017. IMHO the growth in hatred was incited by eight years of Jew-hatred coming from President Obama, and at least a dozen years of hate from the Democratic Party,
Antisemitism is rising sharply across Europe, experts have said, as France reported a 74% increase in the number of offenses against Jews last year. Germany said the number of violent anti-Semitic attacks had surged by more than 60%. In Great Britain, the number two party, the Labor Party, is being recognized as anti-Semitic.
Almost a century ago, a small party in Germany began to make anti-Semitic statements such as Jewish money control the government, and the Jews are not loyal to Germany. Most Germans said it’s just talking. They don’t really mean it. Eventually, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, commonly known as the Nazis were elected into power, and six million Jews were murdered.
Socialism and leftist extremists are taking over the Democratic Party, and like the socialist Nazis and Communist Russia, they are making the Jews their scapegoats. And like the Germans of the 1920s and 1930s, today’s traditional Democrats like Nancy Pelosi claim the anti-Semites don’t really mean it. And leftist commentators such as Juan Williams claim the Jews aren’t bothered by the hatred. He can be hurt by racist comments, but I guess he doesn’t believe that Jews can have human feelings.
To be honest, I’m frightened for my family and my people. Jew-hatred is growing worldwide, and here in America, one party and liberals in the MSM refuse to recognize and censure. Can another Holocaust grow from this? Of course! That’s how it started in Germany, and the Germans said it could never happen there.
