Investigative journalist and Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer blasted the newly-elected members of Congress who have a history of anti-Israel sentiment.
“I forgot to tell you guys, my friends and I last week decided that the new Jew haters in Congress shall be referred to as the “HAMAS caucus” from this point onward,” she said on Twitter early Monday morning.
HAMAS, of course, is the Islamist Palestinian terrorist organization.
Democrat Rashida Tlaib of Michigan’s 13th Congressional district, who is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress, was draped in a Palestinian flag during her election victory party on the evening of Nov. 6.
Her fellow Muslim Congresswoman, Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar infamously Tweeted that “Israel has hypnotized the world.”
“May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” she said.
The Tweet is still live.
Omar also lied during the election, saying that she did not support the BDS movement against Israel. She flip-flopped on that position the day after she was elected.
Democrat Deb Haaland of New Mexico, who made headlines as the first Native American Congresswoman (so much for Sen. Elizabeth Warren), has also expressed anti-Israeli sentiment online.
“The murder of 60 Palestinians in Gaza just as Ramadan begins weigh heavy on my heart today. The youngest was just 8 months old. Here are their names,” she said, before starting a thread with the names of the dead Palestinians.

The Palestinians who were killed were among 35,000 who stormed and attempted to breach the Israeli border in “protest” of the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem in May. Haaland characterized their deaths as “murders.”
And then there is the generally clueless Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who will parrot whichever progressive talking point she is instructed to parrot. During her campaign she criticized the Israeli “occupation of Palestine,” and also referred to the aforementioned Israeli border defense as a “massacre.”
Loomer confronted Tlaib and Omar at a campaign event in August and asked the pair to denounce HAMAS. Both refused. The event culminated in Tlaib assaulting Loomer on video.
City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
