This is what happens when your entire party’s default position is to demonize anyone who disagrees with you. When that becomes a reflex, it can kick in at moments that land you in hot water.
Backlash over that demonization reflex is exactly what we see here.
As our readers will remember, just a few days ago, Jamaal Bowman pulled the fire alarm in the middle of a critical vote in the House, just hours before Congress was scheduled to close.

The left lost control of the narrative on this story.
Jamaal has become a meme and there is no easy way out of this story. He is caught between two equally bad explantions:
- Behind door number one, the same specific species of corruption that landed J6 ‘paraders’ in prison for a decade and more on one hand.
- Behind door number two, a barely room-temperature IQ.
What do Democrats do when they’re cornered, 100% of the time? They lash out and look for scapegoats. But instead of the usual overused ‘white supremacist’ insult the left has been using for the last few years, he reached for an insult with more ‘punch’.
He reached for…
The Nazi card.
Because of course he did.
In the memo obtained by Politico Monday, Bowman’s office suggested several talking points his Democratic colleagues could use to defend the lawmaker, including one that targets what the office claimed are Nazi members of the Republican Party.
The suggestion was written as, “I believe Congressman Bowman when he says this was an accident. Republicans need to instead focus their energy on the Nazi members of their party before anything else.”
The memo comes as some GOP members have accused Bowman of intentionally trying to stop the high-stakes vote. Bowman pulled a fire alarm in the Cannon House Office Building ahead of the midnight deadline to pass a measure to fund the government. — TheHill
Also worth noting is this little insight into how all of the left falls into the same lockstep messaging on pretty much ANY issue of the day. The whole party is fed talking points that they are expected to parrot.
Interesting little grift they’ve got going there. But back to the Nazi part.
He got busted by a news source who had the receipts. And he was taking heat for the statement by people who are NOT on the ‘evil GOP; side. More than just ‘taking heat’, he was being dragged. Here’s a sample:
So he followed the next step in the Democrat playbook — blame a fall guy.
“I just became aware that in our messaging guidance, there was inappropriate use of the term Nazi without my consent,” he wrote. “I condemn the use of the term Nazi out of its precise definition. It is important to specify the term Nazi to refer to members of the Nazi party & neo-Nazis.”
Republican lawmakers and members of the media criticized Bowman’s statement on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., said it was “terrifying” that Bowman was “ever a school principal.”
Others suggested Bowman was just digging himself a deeper hole, as Rep. Mike Lawler, R-N.Y., said Bowman should “put the shovel down.” — FoxNews
Maybe reaching for the ‘Nazi’ slur just DAYS after Trudeau was run through the wood chipper for his government inviting an actual Nazi soldier to be cheered at Parliament during a VERY public Zelensky visit was a spectacularly dumb idea.
So, let’s recap. He is not to be held responsible for the offensive language of his email. We are to lay it at the feet of some unnamed doofus he had the misfortune of hiring, is that right? It’s a one-off mistake and will never happen again.
Do we have that correct?
Let’s see how well that logic holds up to other facts we happen to have at our fingertips.
