Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism: Why Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are despicably wrong

Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism Why Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are despicably wrong

There has been a trend in America growing for the last decade. It’s a trend that was pretty much under the radar until recently when a pair of freshman Congresswomen – Ilhan Omar (D-MN) an Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) – brought it to the forefront. They are masquerading their anti-Semitism behind the guise of anti-Zionism, bringing their growing masses of radical progressive supporters with them down the road to institutionalized bigotry.

And nobody on the left or in mainstream media are willing to call them out.

Thankfully, many pundits on the right are ringing the bell.

Anti-Semitism in America is often expressed by the elite in terms that are intended to disguise their true intent. They express cozy sentiments like, “I’m against the occupying Israeli regime, not the Jewish people,” but then willfully deny any and all wrongdoing on the part of those being “occupied.” This isn’t new, but the trend has been growing thanks in large part to the increased popularity of the two outspoken anti-Zionists on Capitol hill today.

There is no way to separate out anti-Zionism from anti-Semitism without blatant denial of the atrocities and provocations committed by Hamas, Iran, Hezbollah, the Palestinian Authority proxies in Israel itself, and/or Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), the terrorist organization working with Hamas from the Gaza Strip that is much more active in attacking Israel than American mainstream media ever attributes.

Perhaps their name is too telling, so the media just pretends like they don’t exist.

Omar and Tlaib aren’t just wrong. They’re despicably wrong. The difference between just being wrong and despicably wrong is in their intent. I don’t blame every anti-Zionist for believing as they do because many of them have suffered through intense indoctrination for years. They truly believe Israel is wrong about everything while Hamas, the PA, and their cronies are all peace-loving people who simply want to land they believe rightfully belongs to them. They are just wrong. But Omar, Tlaib, and the vast majority of anti-Zionist leaders in the United States are despicably wrong because they are very aware of the crimes committed by the people they support.

They know about them, but they don’t care.

They know Hamas and the PIJ attack Israeli civilians in areas densely populated with Palestinians because the best headlines for them are written when Israel kills civilians.

They know aggression invariably starts as a result of actions in Gaza, but they only want the narrative framed with Israel looking like the aggressors.

They know Israel should have the right to defend itself as a sovereign nation, but they’re unwilling to acknowledge this right because they challenge their sovereignty.

Worst of all, they know if they ever got what they claim to want – a sovereign Palestine – that they’d change their own narrative to push for more. The only thing that might satisfy them is the obliteration of the nation of Israel itself. Even then, it might not be enough for Omar and Tlaib.

Americans need to stop relying on mainstream media to give them the news about the Middle East. The truth is out there. It’s here. It’s at Conservative Review, The Daily Wire, The Blaze, and other proper news outlets. Open your eyes, America.

Two weeks after Benghazi attack, Ilhan Omar Tweeted ‘Allahu Akbar’

Two weeks after Benghazi attack Ilhan Omar Tweeted Allahu Akbar

This is old news, of course, but bears repeating at this time. Representative Ilhan Omar has been doing everything she can over the last couple of weeks to paint herself as the victim of bigotry and someone who loves our country. And while there’s definitely some substance to the notion that crowds of Republicans shouldn’t be chanting “send her back,” it’s also understandable why so many Americans are opposed to her presence on Capitol Hill.

Even if we dismiss reports that she married her brother, called for CBP to be eliminated, said this is “not going to be the country of white people,” referred to 9/11 as “some people did something,” and is regularly praised by former KKK leader David Duke, it’s difficult to dismiss her reaction to the Benghazi attacks that took the lives of four American heroes in 2012.

I’m not going to dignify her Tweet with an opinion. She’s the one who needs to explain it. But despite her celebration, life isn’t good for the four men who lost there’s in Benghazi. Remember this, folks, as Democrats embrace her wholeheartedly.

Funny how nobody mentioned AOC interned for Ted Kennedy

Funny how nobody mentioned AOC interned for Ted Kennedy

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the Chappaquiddick incident when a drunken Senator Ted Kennedy drove his car off a bridge. He escaped, but his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, drowned. He didn’t report the accident for 12 hours.

Mainstream media has spent the last half-century covering up the tragedy to give the popular Senator from Massachusetts political cover. They’re continuing to do it even today.

Associated Press On Chappaquiddick: 50 Years Ago Today, Kennedy’s Car Did Something

Give the Associated Press credit for media consistency. News outlets have spent the last 50 years attempting to distance Ted Kennedy from Chappaquiddick, and this passive-voice remembrance is … perfect.

As Twitter pal Jeff Dobbs puts it, the real crime is that the car got away with it:

Let’s start this in reverse, as it’s the best way to put this in perspective. It’s not true that Kopechne “drowned.” The coroner never autopsied the body, itself a curious omission when dealing with an unattended death of a healthy young woman. Eyewitness testimony by the person who recovered her body at the scene, as well as the position of the body, strongly suggests she suffocated after spending a significant amount of time exhausting the oxygen in the air bubble of the submerged car.

The continuous downplaying of the tragic events by mainstream media is awful. But there’s another angle that nobody is covering. Even as many Democrats, especially far-left progressives, are starting to finally denounce the Senator for his actions all those decades ago, there seems to be no concern that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chose to intern for the Senator as she began her political career.

Kennedy was a Democratic icon, not because of his accomplishments but because of his name. He let Mary Jo Kopechne die at Chappaquiddick, but that’s been forgiven by everyone, including his former intern Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. How woke.

Kyrsten Sinema’s ‘Operation Safe Return’ is a good effort but won’t work to slow migrants

Kyrsten Sinemas Operation Safe Return is a good effort but wont work to slow migrants

Any time a Democrat makes an effort to do something tangible to stop illegal immigration, it’s praiseworthy. Today’s Democratic Party is not only devoid of a plan to slow the migrant surge or end the border crisis. Many are doing what they can to make the problem bigger by pretending it isn’t a problem at all. This is why it’s refreshing to see Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema psuh for “Operation Safe Return.”

The proposal would set rules that would expedite the removal of migrant family units who do not demonstrate a “credible fear” of persecution. It’s a complex, multi-stage plan that sets time limits on how soon migrant families are interviewed and tightens the criteria for them to be released to the interior.

What it does not do is make changes to the Flores Agreement, which enables family units to be released quickly from detention once they file for asylum. This rule is dangerous to the children involved because it makes them a hot commodity for those wanting to move quickly into the interior of the country. Children are being used as “tickets” and are being sold to or rented by illegal immigrants.

Sinema’s plan doesn’t address this, but does go after “economic migrants” which likely accounts for the vast majority of those crossing the border illegally. Our asylum rules do not allow for those seeking better opportunities in America to claim asylum simply because they cannot get a good job in their home country.

According to The Arizona Republic:

The program would allow the Department of Homeland Security to deport certain migrants within 15 days, according to the letter, and would help alleviate overcrowding at border facilities, Sinema said.

“This pilot program would apply to families who aren’t claiming ‘credible fear,’ which of course is the first threshold in seeking asylum,” Sinema told The Arizona Republic. “If someone says ‘I left my country because I can’t make a living,’ (or) ‘it’s hard to take care of my family’ — that’s what we call an economic migrant.”

Sinema is one of the main architects behind the proposed program, along with Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

Sinema said she came up with the idea for the pilot program in response to a meeting with White House and Trump administration officials who she said were focused on changing asylum laws and challenging court rulings like the Flores Settlement Agreement, dictating how the government treats certain migrants.

“I just felt those weren’t the right answers,” Sinema added. “We wanted to solve the problem. We wanted to protect the asylum process for valid applicants … and we want to respect the Flores decision.”

This is a nice attempt, but here’s the problem. Word will continue to spread that migrants should not claim economic hardship as their reason for filing for asylum. They are being given talking points about their status that include saying they’re being persecuted because of their beliefs. This is easy to say and difficult to prove, making it the easy path through which migrant families can come to America and be released to the interior three weeks later.

The proposal has been delivered to acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan for review. It was signed by Sinema and Johnson as well as five Republican and two Democratic Senators.

This is a stopgap plan that may slow the migrant surge and expedite deportations on a small scale, but eventually it will become worthless. Sinema deserves credit for trying, but we need bolder measures if we’re going to make a dent in the border crisis.
