Let’s disregard the historical fact that Democrats founded and represented the lion’s share of Ku Klux Klan membership. Let’s also ignore the fact that the vast majority of Republicans – led by Republican Abraham Lincoln — were the ones that freed slaves. Let’s look over the fact that mostly Republicans were the ones who passed Civil Rights legislation in the 1960s.
Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) showed he has a massive double standard in how he judges the behavior of those on the political Right vs. the political Left when he defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday night during a Fox News town hall, claiming that her criticisms of Israel’s government are not anti-Semitic.
“It’s not anti-Semitic to be critical of a right-wing government in Israel,” Sanders said.
Sanders’ defense of Omar came after he rushed to Omar’s defense over the weekend as she was receiving national criticism for trivializing the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
President Donald Trump tweeted a video of Omar describing the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something,” which drew criticism from the far-left, who claimed that Trump was putting Omar’s life in danger by quoting her exact words.
Sanders defended Omar’s remarks by attacking Trump in a tweet, writing: “Ilhan Omar is a leader with strength and courage. She won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we. The disgusting and dangerous attacks against her must end.”
Talking about race around Democrats can always get a person in trouble, but we need to clarify something: Jews are not just a group of people with a common religion, they are a race of people with one country they call home: Israel. Based on this fact, we can easily let’s replace “anti-Semitism” in normal conversation with the simple term “racism.”
Now turn to Ilham Omar. How anyone can look at her positions and public comments and not see racism against Jews, I’ll never understand. And when you persistently defend Omar and people like her, as Sanders did above and in his incessant remarks against the Jewish state – despite being a Jew himself — he clearly is racist.
In truth, like many Democrats, as a communist Sanders is a self-hating Jew.
But we’re not done. With the left, we’re never done.
Abortion advocates tried unsuccessfully to weaken Ohio’s heartbeat bill with a series of amendments this week, including one that would have allowed only African American unborn babies to be aborted.
The heartbeat bill passed the state legislature Thursday. It would prohibit abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy, in Ohio. Because many women do not even know they are pregnant at this early stage, the legislation could protect almost all unborn babies in Ohio if it goes into effect.
But if Democratic state Rep. Janine Boyd had her way, the bill also would have given an exemption to African American women to abort their unborn babies for any reason up to the state’s current abortion limit, 20 weeks.
On Tuesday during a state House Health Committee meeting, she proposed Amendment 0291 to add the exemption.
Boyd likened restrictions on abortion to slavery as she urged her fellow lawmakers to support the measure. Watch her remarks on The Ohio Channel, starting at minute 51:45.
“Black slaves were once treated like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves,” she said. “Our country is not far enough beyond our history to legislate as if it is.”
It has become child’s play to imagine what would happen if a Republican tip-toed anywhere near this topic. Yet not a single major network picked up this story. How in God’s name can you not just try to give black women greater freedom to murder their unborn children, but then liken opposition to murder of the unborn to slavery?
