At some point, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib will “become” too radical even for the Democratic Party. One of them will say something that won’t be able to be walked back. We can all see this coming. To be honest, I thought it would have happened by now.
These representatives stand beside Linda Sarsour, and CAIR stands behind Linda Sarsour, and the Muslim Brotherhood stands behind CAIR. This isn’t a conspiracy theory; this has been documented by the FBI well over a decade ago.
I agree Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and the rest have the constitutional right to be a bigot if they so desire, same as everyone else in the United States, but I think we’re entirely too dismissive of the ideology they represent. This isn’t a bigotry issue, it’s a terrorism issue. The bigotry is just a symptom.
Question: "Do you think Congresswoman Omar was unfairly singled out?"

Now, Ocasio-Cortez is learning how to become a fund-raising machine with these course-changing outbursts. The Democratic side is so far out that moderate people have to vote Republican. This freshman class appears dangerous to their constituents. Really, did those voters know what they voted in?
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is calling for an end to the United States’ special relationship with Israel while the House debated condemning all forms of hate speech, including anti-Semitism, on Thursday.
The House of Representatives was debating condemning anti-Semitism on Thursday because of anti-Semitic comments made by Ocasio-Cortez’s friend and fellow member of Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), which were directed at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
“It’s official — AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida,” the email said. “Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have times dated to questions out foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them.”
The email then asked for people to contribute to help “keep up the fight against lobbying and special interests of all forms in Washington.”
The email then appeared to call for an end to the United States’ special relationship with Israel.
“In this administration and all others, there should be no special relationship or status,” the email said. “We should actively check anti-Semitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry.” [excerpt via NTK Network]
I was wondering with all the Republican anger and fingerpointing to get Jewish voters to switch and leave the Democratic Party over this Ilhan Omar crap, would they participate in that type of exodus.
Then I realized Jewish voters are Democratic for a reason. They believe in the party’s liberal ideology and identify with its core values. They will not be swayed by Republican attempts to switch allegiances, because on the key issue on which the GOP (partly under Evangelical influence) highlights – diehard support for Israel – doesn’t impress Jews much. They don’t view Israel as essential to their political allegiances in the United States, and even if they did, they think Democratic policy is just fine, or they would have left a long time ago.
Some might think I am stereotyping American Jews. But the “fact” is that American Jews are overwhelmingly liberal. The site I looked at had them at over 70% Democratic voters.
It’s fine that Trump employs Jews; there’s nothing wrong with that. But his priorities for Israel are not the priorities for most American Jews. Why do you think that BDS is extensively promoted by Jewish organizations (despite being called anti-Semitic) based in the USA?
I am sad to say; they will raise monies for their agenda. Whatever happened to smart thinking people? It seems like there is no more critical thinking in America these days.
