When a member of the House of Representatives receives a rebuke from their own party for irresponsible words, standard operating procedure on Capitol Hill is to go under the radar for a bit until the controversy dies down. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has chosen to take the opposite approach, doubling- and tripling-down on her antisemitic stances to the point that another rebuke from Democratic leaders appears to be on her horizon.
Is she just a glutton for punishment or is there a strategy behind her actions? Unfortunately, it’s the latter. She knows exactly what she’s doing.
To understand her goals, we have to examine the trends of the Democratic Party itself. The leftward lurch of the party has been well documented and reiterated in recent weeks by the stances taken by their early presidential candidates. This is no longer the party of compassion and tolerance they pretended to be for decades. The new Democratic Party is driven by hate, divisiveness, and a deep-seeded anti-Americanism that relies on conflict against President Trump to push their hidden narrative. They have become a parody of themselves, fighting intolerance by being intolerant, opposing violence by inciting violence, and embracing radical ideas simply because they’re radical.
I’ve seen a dangerous shift in the way leftists view the world as I engage with friends I once regarded as “sensible progressives.” One friend in particular who I thought was starting to understand the necessity and value of capitalism shocked me when he declared he loved every word her heard from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Keep in mind that just four or five years ago, we were having a nice discussion about how his views from college have been changing since he graduated. Upon joining the real world and fighting to get his show on television, he realized why capitalism made sense. The idea that he deserved things because he wanted them was replaced by the truth of earning things by working hard for them.

Now that he’s successful, he’s ready to embrace socialistic ideas once again. His reasoning: AOC inspired him to “demand better” even if it seemed impossible. I was a little shaken, not because she brought back his former leftism but because his reasons were based on an inspiring individual rather than a series of lucid ideas.
I know this because I made the mistake of asking him the unanswerable question, “How is she going to pay for it?”
What followed was the worst thing I could have heard from an intelligent friend.
“I don’t care,” he said, and the wasn’t an ounce of concern or regret in his face.
This mentality is emerging as the common bond between all of the newfound craziness in the Democratic Party. The base truly doesn’t care whether something is possible. They don’t really care if any of these ideas will actually work. What’s worse is they don’t care if the claims made by Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Beto O’Rourke, or Elizabeth Warren are even true.
Truth is relative to the modern day hyper-leftist. That should terrify us all.
The reason Omar will continue to express her antisemitic views regardless of what her party’s leaders do to her is because the growing base of people who are falling for her charms will only continue to support her if she doesn’t back down.
In many ways, they are pulling from President Trump’s playbook. The more outrageous an idea, the more the base will support it. How many Trump supporters believed him when he repeatedly said Mexico was going to pay for the wall? Now they’re doing logical gymnastics to say Mexico is paying for it through the trade deal he negotiated.
No, they’re not, and if anyone tries to tell me that’s what he was saying all along on the campaign trail, I’ll regrettably classify them in the same category as Omar’s rabid fans who say she’s not antisemitic.
It’s not her message that’s resonating and making people like her. It’s her defiance that endears her to her base, and no matter what message she gives them, they’ll always see her as being correct.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
