Meghan McCain Wants To Jewsplain To (((Us?))) REALLY?
GTFOH with that both sides BS! Like we Jews don't know who's shooting at us. Shouting "Ilhan Omar!" over and over won't hide the fact the the GOP brought these Nazis to the party. Republicans have been bedding down for decades with anti-Semites like Pastor John Hagee, who preach the Holocaust was part of the divine plan to get Jews out of Europe and into Israel to bring about Judgment Day. And now they're bringing the "very fine" tiki Nazis into the fold. Meanwhile, hate crimes against Jews jumped 37% between 2017 and 2019, and Saturday was the second synagogue shooting in six months. So Meghan McCain can spare (((us))) the crocodile tears about the anti-Semitic left endangering the poor Hebrews.
I do think when we're having conversations about anti-Semitism, we should be looking at the most extreme on both sides. And I would bring up Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and some of her comments that got so much attention, and in my opinion Nancy Pelosi wasn't hard enough in her response to her trafficking in anti-Semitic language, talking about 'all about the Benjamins,' and how Jewish people had hypnotized the world.
So, I think when you are talking about rhetoric, and you want to talk about President Trump -- and by the way I agree that he needs to have his feet held to the fire as well, but we're talking about it on both sides of the aisle as well.
WTF does Ilhan Omar have to do with some 8chan lunatic with an AR-15 whose manifesto refers to a medieval blood libel and who took credit for burning down a mosque? Nothing! And it's disgusting to use the body of Lori Kaye (may her name be for blessing), who was murdered trying to protect her rabbi, to bludgeon a Muslim congresswoman and the Democratic Party generally.
I have been critical of Omar's comments on Israel, but I sure as hell know who my friends are. See this picture of the Republican Jewish Coalition's Twitter page?
Notice anything funny, besides the fact that Liz Cheney got eaten by that eagle? Oh, right! The only two Republican Jews in Congress are Lee Zeldin and David Kustoff. Because despite furiously humping Benjamin Netanyahu's leg, Donald Trump is very, very Bad for the Jews. That's why upwards of 75 percent of us voted Democratic in 2018. Because unlike Megs -- "I don't technically have Jewish family that are blood-related to me doesn't mean that I don't take this seriously" -- those of us with actual skin in the anti-Semitism game know who is playing footsie with Nazis and who is not. Hint, it's not the party that sent 35 Jews to the House and Senate. But please, Mr. Trump, tell me more about how Chuck Schumer is anti-Israel, and Steven King is just a proud American.
In the same "This Week" appearance yesterday, McCain complained about feeling "disenfranchised" in today's Republican Party. In fact, she's singing the same song as the rest of the shameless Gippers.
Ted "New York Values" Cruz has thoughts on anti-Semitic dogwhistles? Hard pass.
Chip "Soros Caravan" Roy wants to lecture Democrats on anti-Semitism? REALLY?
Librul Tears Barbie hopping on the bandwagon to seal clap for the ICE agent who saved the day by shooting at the gunman's car was really the icing on the shit cake.
The murderer pulled over later and called the cops on himself, but ... YOU TRIED.
I appreciate the condolence from Meghan McCain. I'm sure that it's heartfelt. But words have meaning. "Globalist" means JEW. "Cultural Marxist" means JEW. "Soros" means JEW. "New York values" means Jew. And only one side is using that language and winking at white supremacists while Jews, and Muslims, and Hispanics, and African Americans become less safe. So miss me with that BOTH SIDES crap. (((We))) didn't survive 5,000 years because we can't tell who is dangerous. And right now, in America, the danger to Jews is the Republican Party who gave the Nazis permission to come out of hiding and fought for their right to buy arsenals of murder machines.
GOP, YOU OWN THIS.
