House Democrats have spent the last month enabling the rise of anti-Semitism within their caucus, especially among their freshman class.
Each week brings a new example of how prevalent these views have become, such as Rep. Omar tweeting about Israel “hypnotizing the world” and Rep. Tlaib hosting fundraisers with anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists…
This weekend was no exception: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez held a phone call on Sunday with UK Labour leader and known anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn.
According to The New Yorker: In 2015, the editor of the Jewish Chronicle called on Corbyn to “explain his connections to Deir Yassin Remembered, an anti-Israel group run by a Holocaust denier; his defense of an Anglican vicar who peddled anti-Semitic conspiracy theories; and his descriptions of Hamas and Hezbollah as ’friends,’ and of Sheikh Raed Salah, a Palestinian mayor accused of making the blood libel in 2007, as ‘an honored citizen.’”
Bottom line: The alliance between House Democrats and the Labour Party reflects their shared agenda: hateful rhetoric toward Israel and a total embrace of socialism. When will Democrat leadership stop looking the other way and denounce the members responsible for it?
