The National Conference of Jewish Affairs (NCJA) held a demonstration at U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office on Thursday at 1 p.m. to protest her failure to discipline Rep. Ilhan Omar for repeatedly using anti-Semitic tropes or pass a clean resolution condemning anti-Semitism. Omar has a long history of controversial statements about Jews, jihadists and Catholic schoolboys.
Theologian and NCJA spokesman Rabbi Aryeh Spero’s group was also joined by supporters from the Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition (an anti-Islamist women’s rights group), the Middle East Research Center and Women for a Great America. The group of demonstrators were heckled by white counter-protesters from Code Pink, a radical anti-war group which supports dialogue with terrorist groups and boycotts of Israel.
“There’s no question that Nancy Pelosi and all of the liberals are ready to condemn anti-Semitism if it comes from the Right or from conservatives, but they’ll never condemn it if it comes from their own house,” Spero said.
Afterwards the group held a 3 p.m. press conference in front of the U.S. Capitol, where they were joined by Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert. Spero hailed Gohmert as “the People’s congressman.” He also thanked Gohmert for his leadership in opposing the House Democrats’ recent anti-bigotry resolution, calling it a “sham.” A Code Pink protester carrying a pink bicycle tried to disrupt the assembly by walking into the crowd and shouting, but she left as Capitol Police started approaching.
In an exclusive interview with Big League Politics, Spero blasted the tendency of Democrats to deflect criticism of Omar by invoking controversial statements by President Trump or Rep. Steve King:
“There’s no question that President Trump is not anti-Jewish, not anti-Semitic, not anti-Israel. He might have had a slip of the tongue or he framed something in such a way that it could be interpreted the wrong way. Omar is not a matter of misintepretation. This is part of a pattern… that’s what’s dangerous about it. This has been used in Europe and other places. What you do is you soil the image of Jews in the population by questioning their loyalty to the country. President Trump never did this.”
Spero also bristled at the notion that he should be more afraid of anti-Semitism from institutionally powerless figures on the Right than from elected members of Congress.
“[Antisemitism is] much more dangerous from the Left. Nobody accepts anybody from the KKK. These are marginalized people. Law enforcement knows exactly who these people are and they would not be allowed to do anything dangerous if the police found out beforehand.
“The Left gets away with it! It’s much more dangerous because the Left does all of its antisemitism and anti-Israelism in the name of social justice. The Left is far more powerful than a few KKK guys in some little enclave in southern Indiana or northern Mississippi. They’re in charge of the culture, the media, academia… the power is unbelievable.
“The biggest proof is that Omar, who’s considered to be from the Left, did what she did and said what she said yet she wasn’t even censured.”
The Ku Kux Klan was once a widespread, popular and politically-powerful white supremacist terrorist organization with as many as 4 million members. After decades of popular scorn sapping their numbers and successful civil suits wiping out their assets, The KKK is now estimated to have as little as 3,000 – 6,000 members nationally.
By contrast, the Nation of Islam (NOI) – a black supremacist anti-Semitic cult with a paramilitary arm – has an estimated 20,000 – 50,000 members. The NOI has published several books of conspiracy theories about Jews including “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” whose false claims that Jews were a driving force in the transatlantic slave trade have been condemned by the American Historical Association.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, Omar’s predecessor, has faced withering scrutiny for his ties to the NOI and so have the leaders of the Women’s March, an organization that Omar has refused to condemn despite widespread disavowals by feminists.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
