The goal of the new left: Normalizing antisemitism

Published

on

The Bible tells us in the last days, Israel will stand alone against the nations of the world. For years I assumed a localization of this prophecy. I thought surely the United States and other allies of Israel would never turn our collective backs on the Jewish state. Now, I’m starting to realize it’s not only possible but likely under a certain set of circumstances that Israel will, indeed, be left alone at some point in the near future with the world universally against her.

The United States in particular is the one nation that has stood by Israel through all of the turmoil. Granted, we had a brief falling out with Israel during President Obama’s terms in the White House, but these were minor spats and there was still enough support in Congress and across the nation to prevent him from fulfilling a full turning away from Israel as an ally. But things are changing. I’m not going to make predictions about the political fortunes of either the United States or Israel. As this is being recorded, Israel is on the verge of an important election while the United States is ramping up for the 2020 elections. There’s no way to know those outcomes and for the sake of understanding the topic at hand, those outcomes are not important. What’s important is acquiring an understanding of the underlying push from the political and religious left to do something I never thought possible until recently: normalizing antisemitism.

Before I go into how this is happening and what needs to be done to prevent it, it’s important that we understand how antisemitism is manifesting in today’s America, Europe, and other regions that have been historically opposed to the concept in the modern era. There is still plenty of hatred directed at the Jewish people. It often goes unreported as attacks on the streets of New York or the sidewalks of Los Angeles draw little interest from mainstream media. If anything, they not only don’t want to report it but willfully cover it up when they’re forced to report it. This isn’t new. Despite accounting for a very small portion of the American population, Jews experience the lion’s share of hate crimes, accounting for 58% of religious hate crimes in the United States in 2018.

But this is not the type of antisemitism the left is trying to normalize. Their focus is on the land of Israel itself. They view the Jewish state as illegally occupying the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Golan Heights. They believe the nation unfairly treats Muslims in the country. They want the nation to be disbanded, replaced by a nation of Palestine that will finally anoint Islam as the universal regional religion of the Middle East.

To accomplish this goal, the new left has entrenched itself with organizations like the BDS movement, Nation of Islam, and CAIR in order to spread a unified message that Islam is good and Judaism is bad. They use colorful language to describe the alleged atrocities committed by Israel against the Palestinian people. When asked why the Palestinian people are dead set on taking over a nation the size of New Jersey instead of utilizing the exponentially greater amount of land controlled by Muslim-majority countries, they change the topic. Why? Because it’s better to deflect questions like these instead of competing against common sense.

Support independent journalism.

Don’t get me wrong. The government of Israel is not perfect. They do make very poor decisions sometimes. But the difference between their poor decisions and the good decisions they make is that the poor decisions are broadcast to the world as examples of their fallacies while the good decisions they make are spun to make them appear like bad decisions. For example, in the last major conflict with Hamas forces in the Gaza Strip, Israel would do something no other government would ever do in the middle of a military conflict. They used a technique called “roof knocking” in which they would alert those within a building that it was about to be leveled, allowing the enemies within to vacate the building before the big bomb hit it. Enemies of Israel would never do such a thing, but how did the leftist and pro-Palestinian press react to this tactic? They called it inhumane to terrify people before bringing death and destruction to them moments later.

This is how the antisemitic new left operates. If Israel does poorly, it’s magnified in the press. If they do well, it’s spun to make it appear they’re doing poorly. There is nothing Israel can ever do that the new left won’t claim to be pure evil.

You may have noticed my conspicuous use of the phrase “new left.” Those of us who have been paying attention to the political landscape for the last few years realize the Democratic Party as well as progressive activist groups have taken a sharp turn lately. Policies that once seemed too radical for even the Democrats to embrace have become normalized. Concepts like the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-All, and outright socialism are no longer fringe ideas relegated to the Green Party. Today’s Democratic Party is starting to allow these ideas to creep into their mainstream thanks to the efforts of the new left. People like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris, Ilhan Omar, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and Beto O’Rourke are taking the Democratic establishment and making it as much their enemies as the Republican Party itself. They’re making accusations, pulling moderate Democrats either closer to them or pushing them away if they don’t embrace the untenable ideas they’re pushing.

One of those ideas happens to be antisemitism, the type I detailed before. Again, they’re not calling for attacks against American Jews, though one can argue their rhetoric still puts American Jews in danger. But their focus is on delegitimizing Israel and driving American sentiment away from supporting our best ally in the Middle East.

Ephesians 6:12 says:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I have to believe this move to normalize antisemitism is a clear example of principalities and powers exerting their manipulative force to turn the world against the nation of Israel. They want Jerusalem to be isolated and vulnerable. The only way that can happen is if the United States turns it’s back on Israel.

Some will argue that since it’s prophesied, Bible-believing Christians should accept or even cheer on this development. To them I would say two things. First, it is not our place to predict prophetic fulfillment. Instead, we should keep our eyes open for its fulfillment and act accordingly when we see it. Second, prophesied evil events are evil nonetheless. Even if it is God’s will for these events to take place, that doesn’t mean we are called to support these events. We do not have power over God’s timetable. Therefore, it is not our place to try to speed it up. Instead, we must support a Biblical worldview and live based on the teachings of the Word.

If the events of the end times are clearly starting to happen, rejoice despite the turmoil that follows. If the events of the end times are still far off on our calendars, rejoice and continue spreading the Gospel. Prophecy is intended to guide us, not to make us insert our own interpretations in an effort to make it fit current events. When the end times events of Revelation and Daniel become evident, believers will not be wondering if the time has come. We’ll know.

Until the end comes, we must do everything we can to defend our only true ally in the Middle East. Antisemites will rise, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep fighting their message of hatred.

Snopes downgrades truth about Beto’s arrests to ‘mostly true’ because a meme got his band’s name wrong

Snopes downgrades truth about Betos arrests to mostly true because a meme got his bands name wrong

Fact checkers are all the rage in the age of fake news. Unfortunately, all of the major fact checkers are left leaning at best, downright progressive at worst. That’s why I make it part of my daily routine to check the checkers to see what they spun today. This latest installment is minor in the whole scheme of things, but it highlights the intense need to protect Democrats whenever possible.

Snopes took on the task of fact checking the following statement:

Beto O’Rourke was in a band called the El Paso Pussycats and was arrested at least twice in the 1990s.

This is true. Beto was arrested twice, which makes him an ideal candidate for the party of lawlessness and disorder. But Snopes, in their certified fact checking wisdom, decided to pick the statement about the arrests that included the name of his band. The statement they chose had the wrong name for the band, using their album name instead. This was enough for them to downgrade the statement from “True” to “Mostly True.”

Not a big deal, right? Actually, it’s bigger than one might think. When people search for Beto and look only for things that are true about him, they will not be shown information about his arrests. The site could have picked literally any other claim about the arrests to fact-check, but had to dig deep to find an internet meme from his failed Senatorial bid last year in order to find one with a statement that included something incorrect in it.

Beto ORourke Arrest

You’ll notice they made sure to mention that both charges were dismissed. The circumstances behind the dismissals seemed to do nothing to negate the crimes he actually committed.

This is just another example of the “fact-checker” running cover for a Democrat they like. The meat of the fact, Beto’s arrests, won’t be found on this site as “True” because they were selective in how they wanted to frame this narrative.

Who is the current moneyline favorite for the Democratic nomination?

Who is the current moneyline favorite for the Democratic nomination

An interesting metric to analyze politics is viewing the moneyline. In fact, online bookies are more accurate at predicting major elections than the partisan hack, Nate Silver and his FiveThirtyEight, who incorrectly guessed every tight Senate race except for the shady Arizona race. But the odd makers spend their time doing their analysis because there is money to be lost if they do poorly. So let’s take a look at one key metric and explore the reasoning as to why.

The lowest tier are the candidates so far out, that they don’t have a moneyline, even when speculated names do. This tier includes Jay Inslee, Pete Buttigieg, and Wayne Messam. Safe to assume that this metric gives these people less of a chance than candidates who have confirmed they aren’t running.

The second lowest tier are the longshots. These candidates range from John Hickenlooper through Corey Booker. These candidates are either not big faces in the Democratic spotlight or are at a serious disadvantage because they have been crowded out of their base. The same could be said about Elizabeth Warren, but she has a devoted core and the potential to make gains when the debates are in full swing.

The next tier are the vultures. Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, and Amy Klobachar need death to survive, metaphorically speaking. The vultures have their sights on a clear target: Joe Biden. If they can feast on his corpse, they’ll survive. But perhaps its Bernie’s corpse they should be gazing upon instead. In truth, I think Yang is more dark horse than vulture, but both appear dark on the outside.

Alas, we have our favorites. Beto O’Rourke, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris, our current frontrunner by this metric. These candidates have the most money, intersectionality points in the case of Harris, ability to win superdelegates as it currently stands, and name recognition. It’s obvious why, at a glance one would rank these names at the top. Under the surface, they also have the most stable base within the Democrat party. Don’t rely too much on polling which will fluctuate like the wind. Kamala Harris could win black vote in the south while the three other white male favorites vie for the northern swathes of the country. And the odds are almost a year out. They too will fluctuate, but I believe the moneyline accurately gives us a picture of our current frontrunners.

Even in New York, more people favor President Trump than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Even in New York more people favor President Trump than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

She’s a media darling. She’s the leader of the hyper-leftist new Democratic revolution. She’s a creation of one of the most powerful and dangerous political organizations in America. And now, she’s having trouble getting people to like her.

According to a new Sienna College poll in New York, a mere 31% of respondents view Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez favorably. Her numbers are worse than other New York politicians, including Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Governor Andrew Cuomo. Compared to the President, her net difference numbers are better at -13 compared to -24 for the President, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that more people know and like the President with 36% viewing him favorably.

My Take

There’s no reason for her to be getting the attention she’s getting. Being a freshman Congresswoman means she has very little say in what actually happens in DC. But it’s not her status or her votes that matter. What makes her dangerous is the way she’s molding the minds of the impressionable leftists who refuse to pick up a calculator or put pen to paper about her outrageous proposals.

She’s the worst type of politician, one who works with the spotlight instead of focusing on educating people about what she’s doing on their behalf and how they can help. I remember when the biggest plea by those in Congress was for their constituents to help them convince their Senators to do the right thing. Now, it’s all about me, me, me; the narcissism of this new breed of politicians is striking.

The more the nation learns about AOC and her insane ideas, the less they’ll like her. We need this to happen. We need Americans to wake up to the truckloads of manure she’s trying to shovel our way. Socialism needs to be stopped immediately.
