My head is spinning from all pretzel logic employed by Dems and their allies in defending Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), so here's just a few samples:
- House Speaker (in name only these days) Nancy Pelosi says Omar was not "intentionally anti-Semitic."
- House Majority Whip James Clyburn essentially tells Holocaust survivors to check their privilege.
- New York Times columnist Paul Krugman says all antisemitism is not created equal. Take a guess as to which kind doesn't bother him.
It takes a lot of work to cede the moral high ground to President Donald Trump, but these people have managed to do it.
Congrats to Democrats for lighting their legitimacy on fighting bigotry on fire this week. One of their best tools against Donald Trump. Hope it was worth it.— Bethany S. Mandel (@bethanyshondark) March 7, 2019
Democrats rightly condemned Trump for winking at the alt-right during the 2016 election for political convenience. Now they're openly kowtowing to the anti-Semitic portion of their base in hopes of generating an intersectional socialist coalition. https://t.co/xDAuCzIeUG— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) March 6, 2019
All Dems had to do to ensure they'd regain complete power in Washington by 2020 is not come off as complete kooks. But they just can't do it. Astonishing.
