The democrat party used to be the party of JFK. They still had the ideals of freedom and liberty at heart.
They truly believed that all forms of hatred should be admonished and those carrying out hateful acts punished accordingly.
My how times have changed.
Today’s democrat party has become the party of AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar. It is the party of antisemitism and outright hatred for the Jewish people.
Mark Levin calls out the radical left and their refusal to condemn the disgusting rise in hate crimes against those within the Jewish community.
National Review reported:
Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), and Cori Bush (D., Mo.) have referred to Israel as an “apartheid” state. Representative Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) referred to “Israeli airstrikes killing civilians in Gaza” as “an act of terrorism” during last week’s fighting between Israel and Palestinian armed groups in the Gaza strip.
After pro-Palestinian demonstrators attacked Jews in New York last week, Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter that “we will never, ever tolerate antisemitism” in the city “or in the world.”
“The recent surge in attacks is horrifying. We stand with our Jewish communities in condemning this violence,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
The Tuesday letter also condemned Representative Marjorie Talyor-Greene (R., Ga.), who compared a Tennessee grocery store’s rule requiring employees to display their vaccination status to the requirement for Jews to wear a yellow star during Germany’s Nazi period.
“”[E]lected officials have used reckless, irresponsible antisemitic rhetoric,” the letter states. “These include repeated, unacceptable, and blatantly antisemitic statements made by a Member of Congress comparing facemasks and other COVID-19 public health measures to ‘what happened in Nazi Germany’ during the Holocaust.”
What AOC has done here is try and set a standard of moral equivalency between herself and Marjorie Taylor-Greene.
While Taylor-Greene’s correlation may have been in bad taste, she wasn’t far off from the truth when it comes to government demanding people line up to receive their ‘jab in the arm’.
In fact, there has been talk of creating a means to ‘identify’ those who aren’t vaccinated.
How exactly would the government do that? Would they require the ‘unvaccinated to wear something on their body?
That is the correlation Taylor-Greene was making and unfortunately it isn’t all that far-fetched.
AOC on the other hand has a history of anti-semitic statements and has even openly spoken in favor of the BDS movement. This movement essentially advocates for sanctions against Israel at the request of the Palestinians.
AOC isn’t the only one with blatantly anti-Israel, anti-semitic statements that need to be reported on.
Fox News reported:
A group opposing anti-Semitism is denouncing Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., after she called for Palestinian freedom “from the river to the sea.”
That controversial phrasing has been interpreted by the Anti-Defamation League to convey an interest in eliminating the state of Israel.
“Rashida Tlaib RT’s [retweets] out the same message that got Marc Lamont Hill canned from CNN,” tweeted the account for StopAntiSemitism.org.
“From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free – code for eradicating the State of Israel and its millions of Jews. Reminder – this is a sitting U.S. Congresswoman.”
The group was referring to a former CNN commentator who was fired from the network after a speech he gave at the United Nations in 2018. At the time, Hill denied calling for Israel’s destruction.
“My reference to ‘river to the sea’ was not a call to destroy anything or anyone,” he tweeted.
“It was a call for justice, both in Israel and in the West Bank/Gaza. The speech very clearly and specifically said those things. No amount of debate will change what I actually said or what I meant.”
Tlaib has faced criticism over her support for Palestinians and the way she talked about Jews.
Tlaib was criticized by House Republicans last year after describing the “calm feeling” she experienced when thinking about the Holocaust. However, the congresswoman said her critics were policing and “twisting” her words and defended the comments she made.
The Michigan congresswoman also made headlines when she sought a humanitarian visit to her grandmother after the Israeli government rejected her and Rep. Ilhan Omar’s, D-Minn., request to enter the Jewish state. Citing the two’s itinerary, Israel claimed that their visit was intended to promote boycotts against the nation.
Tlaib later requested the humanitarian visit through a letter that contained a promise not to promote boycotts. But the Michigan Democrat reversed course after Israel accepted her request, claiming she would have to go under “oppressive conditions.”
On Sunday, Tlaib referenced her grandmother, or “sity,” in a tweet with the photo called out by StopAntiSemitism.org.

Thinking of my sity Muftieh and family in Palestine today. From Detroit to Gaza, we will always fight against oppression and inequality.

The argument can be made that we are headed down a dark and scary road when it comes to hatred against the Jewish people.
Rashida Tlaib’s remarks where she says “from the river to the sea” openly refers to the complete destruction and elimination of the Jewish state of Israel.
This statement cannot be taken lightly and her and her Israel-hating colleagues should be expelled from their positions in congress. Their hatred cannot be tolerated.
It has oftentimes been said that first, they came for the Jews, then they came for the Christians. Remember this as we watch the left continues to refuse to condemn the disgusting, abhorrent, and horrific hate crimes against the Jewish community.
