Explaining President Trump's Remarksby Shlomoh
July 19, 2019
Last week, president Trump made negative comments about 4 Democrat house representatives. These 4 women designate themselves as "progressive Demcrats".
Politicians of the Democrat Party describe themselves, unabashedly and hypocritically, as paragons and champions of ethnic and class equality. And they appear to be when they are championing non-white, non-Jewish people.
But read closely below what they are really championing.
Ilhan Omar, Democrat of Minnesota
(July 17, 2019 / JNS) U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar said that she plans to introduce a resolution this week in support of the anti-Israel BDS movement, reported Al-Monitor on Tuesday.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York
WASHINGTON Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came to the defense of fellow congressional freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar on social media as the House prepares to vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in response to comments Omar made about Israel. A progressive Democrat in New York who called Israel´s killing of violent Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border a massacre’
Rashida Tlaib of Michigan
Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, has previously been criticized by the right for her stance on Israel. (July 16, 2019 / JNS) U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) compared Israel´s dehumanization and racist policies’ to 19th-century segregation in the United States.
Ayanna S. Pressley of Massachusetts.
Pressley supports a bill opposed by many pro-Israel organizations, which would prevent Israel from using American military for the military detention, interrogation, or ill-treatment of Palestinian children.’ But as JTA´s Ron Kampeas noted, dozens of other progressive Democrats support that bill too.
At the time that these so-called "progressive" ideas were expressed, especially the Jew and Israel bashing comments of Somalian Muslim Omar, most Democrats shut their mouths. When a few Democrats such as Pelosi did speak up, Pocahontas and self-hating Sanders rushed to the defense of the Muslims, saying that they be allowed to say whatever they wanted, even if the remarks are antisemitic. After that, not a peep has been heard from any Democrat politician except to condemn the president for so-call "racist" remarks against "women of color", forgetting that these women, who are no more colored than I, spout ethnic hatred against Jews. No surprise there since the Dems have become THE party of antisemitism. But don't take MY word for that.
An old hatred is finding a new home on the far left, and Democratic leaders have failed to condemn it forthrightly.
Popular Democratic celebrities have joined the so-called BDS movement which aims to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction’ our closest ally and the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel.
If the Democrats have a minor socialist problem, they have a major problem in the form of Jew-hating weirdos, preeminent among them the Reverend Louis Farrakhan of the so-called Nation of Islam. Farrakhan has been an out-and-proud Jew-hating weirdo for many decades now, but Democrats still feel the need to make gestures of obeisance before him: Anti-Trump leaders such as Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour of the Women´s March have embraced Farrakhan and courted his favor. Barack Obama came a-calling in 2005 when he was ramping up his political career. The Congressional Black Caucus has consulted him. Bill Clinton stood alongside him at Aretha Franklin´s funeral, implicitly elevating the cult leader. California Democrats Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters attend Farrakhan´s public events, and Obama-administration veteran Eric Holder recently posed for a picture with him.
Linda Sarsour, one of the leaders of the Women´s March which excluded Jewish women from participating and had only recently apologized’ is an ardent supporter of Jew-hater Farrakhan. Unlike the Republicans who denounce, repudiate and ostracize the anti-Semite David Duke, the Democrats embrace and lionize the anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. There is something rotten going on in the Democratic Party. It is no longer the party of Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Moynihan or Scoop’ Jackson. It is rapidly being taken over by radical leftists and Jews better beware!
Major Jewish groups, including the leading organization representing Jewish Democrats, are strongly criticizing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) over his previously undisclosed contacts with Rev. Louis Farrakhan, head of the anti-Semitic political and religious movement Nation of Islam. Some Jewish leaders are urging Ellison to step down as deputy chairman of the Democratic Party.
In late 2012, amid Israel´s week-long military operation targeting Hamas´ long-range missile caches in the Gaza Strip, Ilhan Omar, then a child-nutrition outreach coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Education, tweeted, Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.’
We all know that nature abhors a vacuum. So as Dems become more and more fearful of criticizing so-call "progressives", they leave the door open for someone else to do it, and who more likely than president Trump? Two of Trump's children are married to Jews and Trump is a president who respects Israel as the ONLY true ally of America in the shithole known as the Middle East.
Here's what he said recently, When I hear the way they talk about our country, when I hear the anti-Semitic language they use, when I hear the hatred they have for Israel, and the love they have for enemies like al-Qaeda, then you know what, I will tell you I do not believe this is good for the Democrat party,’ Trump said.
After 8 years of Obama's vocal antipathy of Israel, that country has a defender in the current America president.
Because Trump has constantly been called "racist" since his election, he is criticized for saying what all non-progressive Democrat candidates should have said. If some of his base wants to send these 4 wretched girls "back where they come from", which authentic Jew or Zionist can blame them? The Democrat Party has brought this on itself and when Election Day rolls around next year, many more Jews than previously will be remembering more about Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib than of Pocahontas and self-hating Bernie.
"Now, that Jewish solidarity is politically incorrect and Israel is so resented as a successful and prosperous society by so many among the world's poor and 'oppressed,' they must seek compensation and expiation from their fellow 'progressives' by identifying with the prevailing winds of antisemitism disguised as anti-Zionism. What has changed over the past 40 years is that many prosperous and decadent Europeans and Americans feel embarrassed by the Israelis' gallant defense of their homeland against great odds. Sixty years after its founding, Israel has become an outcast among the nations and the Jews a pariah people once again. How did this occur? From Darling of the Left to Pariah State, subject to continual venomous attacks coming from those who consider themselves 'progressive and 'morally sensitive,' i.e. the mainline churches, university faculties clamoring to boycott and "disinvest" from Israeli owned companies, the media elite and those on the Left side of the political spectrum.'
-Norman Berdichevsky (September 2010)
Time for Jews to wake up
The liberal media, rather than say the truth, that Trump was cursing out antisemites, says that he was cursing out women of color. I repeat, these women are no more colored than I am. Trump calls the media the enemy of the people. I'm not sure they are the enemy of all the people but right now, they show themselves to be the enemy of the Jews. So don't be surprised if next year more Jews vote for Trump than last time.
