Opinion| I-C-Y-M-I March 19 – In their efforts to garner the support of the most radical, repulsive and dangerous voters, Democrats have twisted themselves into knots trying to justify, unjustifiable behavior and rhetoric.
Ocasio-Cortez and her often hilarious ignorance are just the tip of the iceberg standing in the path of Pelosi and her Democrats. Congressional members like Ilhan Omar and their blatant anti-Semitic rhetoric are finally causing a rift between traditionally liberal Jewish voters and the Democrats.
As someone who’s father’s side of the family is Jewish, I have always wondered why so many Jews supported Democrats. Jews love to talk about “never forgetting” the Holocaust while they continue to vote for politicians who want to take their gun rights away. Jews traditionally put a very high value on taking pride in all they do, all while voting to expand the nanny state and to remove personal responsibility from society. I could go on and on, but I think I am preaching to the choir here.
It seems my fellow tribesmen (and women) are starting to break the trance and wake up to reality.
Sara Carter is reporting:
Jexodus is the new movement urging Jews, especially millennials, to exit the party of the Democrats because of that party’s increasing willingness to excuse bald antisemitism amongst its ranks.
Now comes an appeal to all Jews to stand up to the Democrats’ leadership and demand they “stop this anti-Jewishness dead in its tracks.”
Therefore, in response to what it calls the failure of the Democratic leadership, the National Conference of Jewish Affairs (NCJA) has called for a sit-in at the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, March 14, at 1:00 p.m. The sit-in will be followed by a press conference.
A letter to Pelosi will be presented at the sit-in on Thursday. The letter is signed by NCJA spokesperson Rabbi Aryeh Spero.
Bristling with anger, the NCJA wrote:
“You had a chance to stop anti-Semitism dead in its tracks. You did not. You had a chance to shut down the burgeoning anti-Jewish and anti-Israel attitudes seeping into America’s House of Representatives. But, you didn’t. You allowed anti-Semitism and toxic attitudes towards Israel as a nation to stand in the House.
“We expect more from a Speaker. You failed. You have allowed the People’s House to become a House with a distinct odor of hate. You had a chance make a righteous historic decision, but instead you chose appeasement and politics, you decided in favor of what you feel will best serve your Party’s political ambitions.”
NCJA Call Out Failed Democratic Leadership
NCJA founder and president Beth Gilinsky called out the recent failure of the Democrats to follow through on a plan to publicly criticize Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for numerous anti-Semitic slurs.
NCJA and its supporters claim the failure of Democratic leadership is exemplified by allowing Omar to sit on the coveted House Foreign Affairs Committee. This, despite Omar being a spanking-new freshman congresswoman who had already made public anti-Semitic comments and been chastised by her own local Jewish community. Next, the leadership chose to keep her on the important committee despite Omar’s repeated antisemitic insults to Jews in her very first few months in office. READ MORE @ SARA CARTER
A word of caution to my fellow Maccabees, while we welcome you with open arms, be careful of who your trust on the right as well. Just because someone has an “R” in front of their name (Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell…) does not mean they are part of the solution either.
