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.

Dallas County Safer-at-Home Order in Effect Until April 30, Could be Extended
On Friday, April 3, 2020 Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins clarified that his Safer-at-Home order is in effect until April 30. This came after the commissioner’s court signed off an extension of the county’s disaster declaration until May 20 earlier in the day. This led to confusion about how long the stay at home order would remain in place.
According to members of the commissioner’s court, the extension of both the disaster declaration and Safer-at-Home order were greenlit until May 20. The vote to approve the extension of the disaster declaration was conducted on Friday morning during a special meeting of the Dallas County Commissioner’s Court. At the meeting, Jenkins shared numerous Wuhan virus projection models illustrating a rise in the number of which are expected to peak in the county on April 20.
However, Jenkins clarified on Friday afternoon that the Safer-at-Home orders and the Disaster Declaration are different documents and that the commissioner’s court approved the extension to the Disaster Declaration, although it was still up to him to determine the effective dates of his Safer-at-Home order.
On Twitter, Jenkins revealed that the Safer-at-Home order will now go into effect through April 30. Jenkins noted that he has the power to extend the Safer-at-Home order until May 20 if he has to, since the disaster declaration had been approved until that date.
Jenkins tweeted, “Based on the extension of the Declaration of Disaster granted today, I am extending the Dallas County Safer at Home Order to April 30. The Declaration of Disaster is necessary to provide the tools to lead you through this. The Safer at Home Orders are the rules we ask of you.”

County Commissioner John Wiley Price, who represents the southern portion of Dallas, was the only person who voted against the plan claiming that the restrictions that are currently in effect are “choking” his constituents and recommended that the court allow pawn shops to stay open as an essential business so that people could have easier access to cash.
“We’re going to just kill off an entire community in the next 60 days.” Price declared. “Pick our poison. We either go with COVID-19 and die or we just economically die.”
Certain businesses have been greatly impacted by these closures.
Bar owner Joe Hinkson revealed that he’s lost more than 90 percent of his business.
“I’m livid,” Hinkson stated. “A bar has a short shelf life typically and to survive and prosper and grow in the 10-year period, and be open for 11 years and have something like this happen.”
However, the more progressive urban centers in Texas will look to find ways to make people’s lives miserable.
