What is Good For the Republicans is Good For the Democrats

Hate and prejudice have no place in this country, whether it is on the streets or in the corridors of power.

Instead of censuring Rep Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) earlier today, House Democrats took the easy way out. While they did pass a resolution on antisemitism, it was akin to putting a band-aid over a bullet wound.

When Rep Steve King (R-Iowa) questioned how the term white supremacist could be hateful, he was severely and publicly censured by his party. In contrast, the response by Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic leadership to Rep Omar’s comments looks weak.

Rep Omar is entitled to her opinions and to speak out of there is a legitimate humanitarian crisis.  There is a humanitarian crisis in Palestinian territories, but it is not caused by Israel. It is caused by the Palestinian leadership who is more interested in destroying Israel than actually supporting the citizens who call the Palestinian territories home.

 

As a voting bloc, American Jews have voted mostly for Democrats for generations. We have a Presidential election coming up next fall. If the goal of the election is to replace you know who with a qualified member of the Democratic party, I suggest that the Democratic leadership censures Rep Omar now. If they don’t, they may lose the confidence of the voters and help you know to another four years in office.
