Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Everyone is talking about lunatic congressional freshmen women today, and none of it is good. That’s really nothing all that new, but when Democrats have reached the point where their members of congress are even being slammed on CNN of all places, you know they have a problem. Watch this clip:

In addition to their exploding antisemitism problem personified by Tlaib and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, the Democrats have obviously gotten some very bad polling data about their religion of Climate Change, and the insane “Green New Deal” being pushed by New York congressnitwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
That’s the only reasonable conclusion to reach when you see AOC issuing this tweet over the weekend:
This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.
Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.
But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows. https://t.co/pmkwrdeAnq

But there is no doubt at all that the former Bronx bartender was dead serious when she issued this tweet in April:
Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half.
A #GreenNewDeal is our plan for a world and a future worth fighting for.
How did we get here?
What is at stake?
And where are we going?

I’m sooooo serious, y’all! OMG!
So, what has changed in the four weeks since that tweet was sent? Well, we know that every decision Democrats make is based on focus groups and polling data, so the obvious answer is that the “Green New Deal” and its 12-year “deadline” (her word, not anyone else’s) is being panned by the voters. When the polling goes south on any issue being pushed by the Democrats, the talking points must change. Thus, what was a hard “deadline” on April 17 becomes “O.M.G., y’all! I was like totes kidding and stuff about that whole 12-year thing, or something!”
Let’s be painfully honest here: AOC has no clue what the word ‘sarcasm’ even means, would not know ‘dry humor’ if it snuck up and bit her on the, ummmm, ankle. Or something.
As for Tlaib and her latest despicably antisemitic remarks over the weekend, well, here they are in case you missed them:
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports. And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
So, here’s a woman who gets a “calming feeling” when she thinks about an event in history in which more than 6 million Jews were exterminated by the Nazis and their collaborators. Oh, and their collaborators included the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Amin al-Husayni, who happened to be the leader of the loosely-allied Arabs in the Middle East who called themselves “Palestinians.”
There was no effort on the part of Tlaib’s “ancestors” to “create a safe haven for Jews” during this period of time. In fact, Jewish people had begun migrating back into the region in the early 1880s, and of course have a long history in that part of world dating back thousands of years.
In fact, the Arab world – including the “Palestinians” in the region – rabidly opposed the creation of a Jewish state after World War II had ended, and refused to cooperate with it in any way. In 1964, these “Palestinians” – created the Palestinian Liberation Army and began conducting terror attacks on Jewish citizens in Israel.
The first leader of the PLO was a Lebanese national named Ahmad Shukeiri. In 1969, the PLO chose as its leader an Egyptian national, Yassir Arafat, not for his peaceful intentions but for his skills in conducting terrorist warfare. In 2006, Palestinians elected to be ruled by the terrorist organization known as Hamas, which still rules them today.
These are not “peaceful” people who voluntarily gave up land or anything else to “help” post-war Jews. That “calming feeling” Tlaib experiences when contemplating the barbaric deaths of 6 million Jews is based on a politically-motivated myth.
But Tlaib, along with AOC and fellow raging anti-Semite Ilhan Omar, are the new, ugly faces of today’s Democrat Party. And it seems that no matter what they say, no matter how repugnant their public declarations become, Nancy Pelosi will do nothing to discipline them.
Why? Simple: The repugnant, ugly, fantasy-based views they express are in fact mainstream thought in today’s Democrat Party. The reality is that these freshmen women are killing the Democrat Party not because of the insane things they believe, but because they so bluntly and frequently express them in public.
If you are Jewish and you vote for these people, you do so at your own peril. Then again, that holds true for all of us, and has for a long time now.
That is all.
