Beware of the Israel/Jew hating trend of the Democrat Party, in evidence today and clearly to sprout like weeds in the very near future. For those of us who (care to) remember history, all the signs are obvious, clear and evident. Now that the Socialist/Progressive wing of the party has taken root and taken over, the scent of Antisemitism now permeates the air they breathe in and out.

Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, the Muslim refugee from Somalia, is now the party’s quarterback in the game of demeaning American Jews and the nation of Israel. She is their outspoken leader and thanks to the Muslim refugee resettlement efforts of HIAS, Lutheran Social Services and Catholic Charities, Ilhan rules the roost in the heavily Somali/Muslim populated Twin Cities area of Minnesota. She’s in office for life. After all, Keith Ellison, another outspoken Muslim, whom she replaced in Congress was just elected that state’s Attorney General, although he is a supporter and protege of Louis Farrakhan. Signs of the times to be wary of.

As a state legislator, Omar evidenced her proclivity to speak out in hateful terms about Israel and her reliance on the Koran’s calls for Allah to punish Jews. Her own elected state Democrat buddy, Ron Latz, a Jew, cautioned her way back in 2012 about her vocalizing her abhorrence of Jews. “We wanted to reach out to her,” Latz recently recalled in an interview with The Twin Cities Pioneer Press, “We were a bit troubled about several things she had said. ” A bit concerned? About several things? Did he ever mention this to the media when she ran for Congress? Absolutely not. The Party comes first. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi both jumped on the hand slapping of Omar over her more recent comments. Both chided her and demanded she immediately apologize for suggesting that American Jews buy off Republicans for their overt, constant support of Israel.

Omar’s response was a clear in your face, non-apology. Did Nancy remove her from her post on the House’s Foreign Affairs Committee? Why did Pelosi even appoint her to that position, knowing full well Omar’s Koranic-like hatred for all things Israel? Not one word. But she did have the outright support of heavy Democrat/Progressive, Bernie Sanders, who, just today. announced that he will be a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate. His quote when being interviewed by, of all people, Israel bashing, Jim Zogby, Co-Chair of (chuckle) the DNC’s Ethnic Council, “I talked to Ilhan last night to give her my personal support. We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.” Give Bernie credit for being honest, not like his political buddies who are wooing Muslim voters to support their candidates in 2020. And this bending over to these boldly open, Jew/Israel haters will overwhelm the Democrat Party to the extent we predict it will be a major platform on their 2020 Platform. The weeds are sprouting.
