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

Published

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.

Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments

Hawley is no leader.

Published

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.

Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.

There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
