HBO Bill Maher is a man of the left, make no mistake in that! However, he does understand that the #RadicalFour along with the direction of the Democratic Party has an underlying strain of anti-Semitism.
On Friday night’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher blasted the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement as “a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke, but slept through history class.”
Well, for once Maher called a spade a spade. He made convincing statements, and his guest ran from the topic. It amazes me how the Jewish community supports the Democratic Party when they are antisemites. For some, It’s because the right supports the Jews. For others like the squad, it’s purely hate.
Maher: “BDS is a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but slept through history class. It’s predicated on this notion, I think, it’s very shallow thinking that the Jews in Israel, mostly white, and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, these completely peaceful people found themselves occupied.”
“Let me read one of the cofounders of the [BDS] movement, Omar Barghouti. His quote: “No rational Palestinian would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement. Someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow, this side never gets presented in the American media.”
“Congresswoman Omar has said things like, ‘It’s all about the Benjamins,’ ‘Israel has hypnotized the world,’ ‘May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.’ She apologized for it, but it’s out there: Jews control the world, manage the money. I can see why they don’t get a hero’s welcome” in Israel, he concluded.
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, four Democrat freshman lawmakers are come out in support of protesting Israel, who earlier this week barred both Tlaib and Omar from entering their country. Israeli officials later allowed Tlaib access to visit her grandmother after she wrote a note asking to be allowed to visit her ailing grandmother. She then turned down their gesture in support of the BDS movement.
Omar and Tlaib were not going to Israel on official business representing the US. The sponsors (paying for) the Omar/Tlaib visit is a leading anti-Israel anti-Semitic organization and a force for the BDS movement. Therefore they were going to Israel on behalf of this anti-Semitic cause. Once Tlaib agreed not to speak about this movement, my guess is that they pulled their funding. That’s why she changed her mind about going. The rest is typical anti- Israel propaganda.
As our society and government have moved toward hard lefty fascism, we are going to see more of these Omar, and Tlaib types come forward. Today, they are going nowhere, but their followers are watching, and as they push that envelope ever so slightly ahead, the next ones will be encouraged to take it a little further. The conservatives must stop this ugliness, as well as tamping out the crazy far-right nuts too. We are the center now. Neither of these fringy crazies can be allowed to get a foothold. The right-wing is already exposed and shunned, but these far-left fascists are getting support from “mainstream” media and many in the government. I shudder to think if we don’t get rid of these “reps” at the ballot box. And soon.
