Democrats have an “anti-Semitism” problem.
Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar hates Jews, and she’s not afraid to let people know it.
Democrats have no business being surprised. Their party’s own policies led them to this point.
The biggest example was former President Obama’s Iran “deal”. It gave billions to Iran, a country whose government — like Congresswoman Omar — makes no bones about the fact it wants Israel wiped off the face of the map, and that Jews (like other non-Muslims) have no right to live.
And don’t tell me the U.S. simply “gave back” money that “belonged” to Iran. Iran is a dictatorship. While individuals have rights, criminals do not. Bloody dictatorships are criminals on an organized, horrifyingly legitimized scale. The government of Iran has no rights — particularly to build nuclear weapons that will be used against Israel!
Is it any wonder the Democratic Party has produced someone like Congresswoman Omar, who is now a thorn in the side for their Jewish supporters?
The real question is why or how Jewish people can support the Democratic Party at all. Aside from moving in a totally socialist and Communist direction, the Democratic Party has simultaneously moved in a decisively anti-Semitic direction.
Bad premises and ideas eventually lead to bad policies and bad people in office.
Ilhan Omar is not some kind of odd exception. She’s a reflection of the Democratic Party’s loathing of liberty and individual rights. The leftist movement will take totalitarianism wherever it can get it. And totalitarianism goes hand-in-hand with the anti-Semitism coming out of this horrible woman’s mouth.
Democrats WANT her, even if they claim not to; because any enemy of America and freedom is a friend of theirs, for sure.
