    Default Bigoted Minnesota Democrat Forced to Apologize

    Elected Democrats are currently awash in a sea of racism, bigotry and abuse. It is yet another intersectionality crack up. When will they stop pointing fingers and look within?

    Democrats tend to flush their toilets while Republicans prefer to just live in their own sh!t.

    Well justified criticism of Israel and it's leaders and it's international behaviour are not anti semitism.

    Today Kevin McCarthy tweets: "In the face of Democrats' abdication of leadership, Republicans will take action this week to ensure the House speaks out against anti-Semitic hatred. We stand with Israel and the Jewish people."

    Last October it was: "We cannot allow Soros, Steyer, and Bloomberg to BUY this election! Get out and vote Republican November 6th. #MAGA."

    Republicans and their trolls have neither honor nor shame.

    Another one , What a disappointment. It seems as if it was just today, in fact right here in the bilge, where I read birds of a feather flock together.

    As Ron II said- The left tends to flush their own toilets. The right swims in theirs and tries to point fingers whilst bumping their heads on the crap they are keeping afloat.

    As long as people are willing to equate criticism of Israel, with antisemitism, we will never be able to have an honest debate.
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    So the same people whine about political correctness, go all in on
    enforcing their own version of permissible speech.

    If you look into the craven cowardice of our pols on the anti-BDS legislation,
    you'll find out all you need to know about how they balance support for the constitution
    and the Zionist project.

    Hint - The former goes out the window.

    I used to be a very strong Israel supporter, but that was many dead Palestinians, Iraqis, etc. ago - and the
    continuous seizure of land in defiance of international law. And actually, a majority of American Jews agree with me.

    And Blue just cares about trying to score cheap points - what a partisan hack low-life.

    Virginia, and now this mess with the naked bigotry emanating from Frosh Democrats from the upper Midwest, have squandered a very powerful weapon that Democrats previously had, that is, the race card. That's done now. Astonishingly, in an era of Trump, Democrats have somehow given away the high ground on bigotry, racism and abuse.

    Indeed, if Fairfax can get away with raping one woman and forcing another to perform oral sex on him (as has been alleged and we know that we're required to "believe all women"), the #Metoo card is done too.

    This has been a very bad couple of weeks for Democrats.

    I am deeply critical of the internationally accepted definition of anti-Semitism that is as close to defining criticism of Israel's behaviour as anti-Semitism as makes no odds.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Dear Sky, after giving some thought to your comments, I would like to apologize. Although I'm more of a conservative Democrat/Massachusetts Republican, I can see now that I've voted for more than my share of racist candidates in the past. I can also see that those racist candidates have deeply offended you.
    So, I am sorry. I hope that you can forgive me.

    Speaker Pelosi's remarks today on the matter:

    “Anti-Semitism must be called out, confronted and condemned whenever it is encountered, without exception.“We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests. Legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate that the United States and Israel share. But Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.“As Democrats and as Americans, the entire Congress must be fully engaged in denouncing and rejecting all forms of hatred, racism, prejudice and discrimination wherever they are encountered."

    I don't think I've read a single post here on this Forum that so much as complains about Representative Omar's remarks (to say nothing of someone having condemned them), as Speaker Pelosi has done here.

    What is wrong with you people? What has happened to your party?

    this prolly won’t distract me from the fact that the negotiation on government funding just reached a deal that doesn’t include the wall and decreases ICE detention beds. Now trump will be forced to cave again or shut down the government again or declare an emergency and start a constitutional crisis. Incompetence reigns supreme. This israel flap will be history by Wednesday, if not earlier.

    You dopes just lost the house with record employment and the hottest economy in decades. Why is that?

    A good friend's wife works for the UNHCR in the occupied territories. The things the Israelis do to make life hard for Palestinians are extensive. They warehoused a load of mail that came over the Jordanian border for ten years then realised it piecemeal. Segregated road systems, multiple checkpoints between two Palestinian areas. Unregulated armed settlements where the army will turn it's back on infringements against Palestinians by the settlers. It's a long list.
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    I disagree

    "Ilhan Omar was right to point out the impact of AIPACís money"


    supporters of the Biblical Theme Park erupt in fury

    well, I disagree

    my thesis is

    AngloBritish Empire = Alto Imperio Romano
    "the end of the world" (1914-1948) = imperial Crisis
    AngloAmerican Empire = Bajo Imperio Romano

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantine_the_Great

    (well, at least there is an English version of Constantinus, I was starting to worry)

    the so-called Christianity in its Catholic version is a fusion of Roman Imperial Religion and priestly Judaism, and in its Protestant version it is a fusion of Roman Imperial Religion and the bloody Aramaic fantasies of the Persian Era aka the Old Testament

    my thesis is

    protestant-judaic-catholic Zionism is the actual (1967-) Imperial Religion

    money does not have the power, but the gods, the demons, the spirits, the collective minds and the collective imaginations that trap and enslave the minds of "the busy mortals" that the poet Homer said

    She apologized, in her words unequivocally.

    This is why the freshman in Congress should keep their mouths closed a little, pay attention, learn.

    Listening to one Democratic representative on the radio was a great example of how various tropes infect almost all conversations about Israel and Palestine. That representative in his ungracious and grudging 'acceptance' of Omar's apology made it clear that the only acceptable apology would be to blame all middle east problems on everyone except Israel.

    Just as Omar is learning how to criticize Israel and Israeli lobbying power without antisemitic overtones, so also supporters of Israel must learn that crying "antisemitism" does not justify ethnic oppression.

    Representative Omar has made a good start. I hope she is strong enough to not get drawn into bickering by trope.
