Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has become arguably the most controversial lawmaker in Washington D.C. after making an array of comments deemed anti-Semitic since he election last November.
Her Jewish communications director, Jeremy Slevin, is responsible for the task of rehabilitating the Somali migrant’s tarnished image.
Slevin had previously worked for MSNBC and the Center for American Progress, showing his deep connections to Democratic establishment. He also helped rehabilitate the career of former Rep. Keith Ellison, who was able to shake off his connections to radical Islam and a credible domestic violence accusation to become Minnesota’s attorney general in 2018.
“No politician runs to get into trouble,” said Ellison, who once called Slevin his communications director while serving in Congress, to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. “You run to do some good in the world. When that goes awry, you need someone to help you. That’s Jeremy.”
Under Slevin’s tutilege, Omar has taken a much more concilliatory approach toward the Jewish community that she offended previously with her incendiary comments.
“I know there are a lot of people who in the last weeks have expressed support in trying to say this isn’t anti-Semitic or this shouldn’t be looked at in that way,” Omar said on a Feb. 19 conference call with Jewish leaders.
“I do not want to give space or energy to anyone who wants to minimize the hurt,” she added.
Most on the call seemed impressed with these words, but Hadar Susskind – a Jewish Soros-linked operative who now serves as Director of Bend the Arc Jewish Action – saw Slevin’s blueprints all over them.
“That’s the nuance and the voice he brings in, getting past the zero-sum game of ‘I’m right and you’re wrong,’ and actually building community and getting people to work together,” Susskind said of Slevin.
While Slevin may have brought “nuance” into Omar’s talking points, he has not done the same for his own communications. The following message of blatant truth denial, posted last week by Slevin on his Twitter account, drew a tremendous amount of anger from observers:
Anti-semitism is a right-wing force Anti-semitism is a right-wing force Anti-semitism is a right-wing force Anti-semitism is a right-wing force Anti-semitism is a right-wing force Anti-semitism is a right-wing force Anti-semitism is a right-wing force Anti-semitism is a right-win https://t.co/IbISMS7lXU

Slevin was immediately hammered by a chorus of Jewish people who felt he misrepresented the actual nature of the anti-Semitic threat:
I am a Jewish refugee from the Soviet Union, a socialist country which systematically persecuted Jews. There are over 500,000 U.S. Jews who share my background. I hope you will be open to hearing why we disagree with the idea that antisemitism is limited to the right.

The Jew hatred (antisemitism) which tried to murder a Jewish family in their home this week was Islamic.
The Jew hatred which tried to murder my friend a few years ago was Islamic.
You know nothing.

Out of embarrassment, Slevin unsuccessfully attempted some damage control by issuing some additional tweets:
I am Jewish and my family also fled Russia. I am well aware of Soviet persecution.
My tweet was referring to the United States (which I should have made clear). I also don’t view the Soviet Union as progressive in any meaningful way.

Agree. I should have said “Violent anti-Semitism in the U.S. is primarily a right-wing force”

Regardless of the exact intent of Slevin’s words, it is clear that he is willing to misrepresent anti-Semitism to protect his Democratic clientele. If Omar survives her many anti-Jewish outbursts and remains in Congress, she will have Slevin to thank for fixing her many problems.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686
— Rep. Joe Kennedy III (@RepJoeKennedy) September 25, 2020
Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
