Congress

Progressive Activists Lionize Ilhan Omar and Impede House Anti-Semitism Measure

Published

on

Congress is getting ready to consider a resolution against anti-Semitism in the wake of repeated problematic comments that Muslim US Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has made about the state of Israel, but Democratic House leaders have a serious problem: their activist base has lost its marbles.

Omar is gaining steam because left-wing lawmakers and other radicalized ‘Never Trump’ liberals are using her as a rallying point. She is a woman, a minority, dark skinned, and represents a foreign alien culture so thus criticism of anything she says is off limits, as modern Democratic dogma dictates.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) questioned the necessity of the resolution with some of her trademark asinine blather that revolved around the usual victim narrative:

Right now, Congressional Democrats are preparing to fold as Omar’s support calcifies within the leftist faithful.

“We’re still discussing it,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said of the resolution’s progress on Tuesday. “The sentiment is that it ought to be broad-based. What we’re against is hate, prejudice, bigotry, white supremacy, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism.”

“Yes, we’re strongly against anti-Semitism, but we’re strongly against prejudice directed at any group,” he added.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) maintains that Omar will receive no repercussions regarding her seat on his committee despite her frequent anti-Semitic comments.

“I don’t think the Foreign Affairs Committee should be used as punishment for anybody,” Engel said. “But I do think [Omar] needs to understand what she said is very hurtful. Whether she is on the committee or not is not the issue.”

Meanwhile, a Twitter campaign is building of progressives who are using the hashtag “#IStandWithIlhan” to stand in solidarity with the woman who has made repeated insensitive and incendiary comments toward Jewish people.

Meanwhile, racial grievance lobbyists affiliated with notoriously anti-Semitic leftist Linda Sarsour are circulating a letter addressed to Speaker Pelosi urging her to “reject the vicious and racially-motivated bad-faith smears” against Omar and her Islamic counterpart in Congress, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

“As a Black Muslim woman, Representative Omar is uniquely and personally threatened by the exceptional atmosphere of unfair scrutiny of her right to engage in legitimate political debate. With the current rise of white nationalism and xenophobia, bigotry certainly includes but also certainly extends well beyond antisemitism, and the Democratic leadership would be dangerously tone-deaf not to mention the horrific significant rise in violence, hate crimes, and death threats against all communities of color,” the letter reads.

“Since she has taken office, Representative Omar has consistently been one of the most progressive voices in Congress. We are grateful to her for her consistent and principled stance in support of economic justice, racial justice, immigration justice, environmental justice, justice for the oppressed including Palestinians, and an end to war. The Democratic leadership should celebrate and support her instead of abandoning and condemning her,” the letter continues.

The letter was signed onto by Sarsour as well as representatives from groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, Black Lives Matter Global Network, Working Families Party, Democracy for America, Women’s March, American Friends Service Committee, Million Hoodies Movement for Justice, and other allied groups pushing for the leftist take-down of America.

As much as Pelosi and other more corporatist Democrats would like to deny it, voices like Omar’s are firmly within the mainstream of today’s deranged Left. Voters must be made aware of what is happening to the Democrats so they can reject this extremist threat in 2020 and beyond.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
