COLBERT COVERS FOR CRYBABY

I thought late night comedians are supposed to be funny not subversive activists.

Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar stayed mum on her comments about 9/11 during an appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert — as she complained of being held to a double standard by her critics.

Colbert didn’t ask about her recent reference to the 2001 terror attack as “some people did something,” but he did reference the Minnesota Democrat’s controversial statements about Israel — and about the criticism she’s faced from conservatives and some Democrats.

She responded by saying that her critics do not receive the same amount of scrutiny as she does.

“This kind of double standard it really is quite offensive,” she told Colbert.

“It is very much embedded in a lot of our culture these days, where you will have people come after minorities for things that they say, that they might have insinuated,” she added.

The congresswoman, one of the first two Muslim women elected to the House, then turned the conversation over to a “Fox and Friends” host who said in response to her 9/11 comment “You have to wonder if she’s an American first.”

“No one goes after people like the folks on Fox and Friends that actually say those words. It’s not about insinuation, right?” she said. “They actually said that I might not be an American. My loyalties might not be to this country. But I get called out. They don’t.”

The Fox host, Brian Kilmeade, had tweeted before the interview that he didn’t mean to question if Omar was American, he was “questioning how any American, let alone a United States Congresswoman, could downplay the 9/11 attacks.”

BATTLESHIP GRAY LIKE ME

It has come to my attention that the most salient features of identity politics and intersectionality are inconsistencies, incongruities, and idiocy.

This especially applies to the relations between African-Americans and Jews, and African-Americans and Muslims.

There was a time last century when Jews were at the forefront of the civil rights movement, which seems to have been expunged, dare I say blackwashed from the current cultural milieu.

I contend that this slide began with a 1968 New York City teachers strike.  Local school boards in black districts  wanted community control but were opposed by the teachers union, whose leadership was mostly liberal Jews.

Community control is essentially a right-wing libertarian small government concept.

For an inner city district it’s liberating but for an upscale neighborhood it’s labeled as racism. Different strokes for different colors?

Nowadays many black Americans support the BDS movement and  “intifada”, and align themselves with other Muslim Arabs.

The same Muslim Arabs who started the transAtlantic African slave trade.

The word for a black person in Arabic is abed, which means slave, and blacks are still enslaved in many places within Arab culture.

Does this alliance make sense?

And why the animosity to Jews and Israel?

What hold do Palestinians have over American blacks?

If it’s the bonhomie of skin color how moronic is that?

What are the cultural affiliations? What are the shared goals and values other than a decision to hate Jews?

What else is there to it  besides a belief in 1970s Soviet propaganda that Jews are white colonial oppressors?

The dirty little secret of the “non-white” world is that the darker skinned non-whites are discriminated against by the lighter skinned non-whites and they in turn are resented for trying to pass. This has been confessed to me by African-Americans and Hispanics.

I’m not saying this makes it excusable for whites , I’m just calling race baiters on their shit.

Arabs say they can’t be anti-semitic because they are Semites also.

So if that’s the case why are they people of color and Jews are white?

Grasping at straws regarding fake or real skin color is imbecilic and an arbitrary way to compartmentalize people.

So what color are Jews?

Jews come in all different skin tones.This doesn’t mean I’m t saying that Jews are immune to the mental frailty of prejudice.

But here is the other dirty little secret. No matter what skin tone a Jew has, he or she has more genetic commonality with other Jews than the non-Jews he may look like.

A Jew from Burma who appears Asian has more shared DNA with a Danish Jew who looks Nordic than they each have with non-Jews in Burma or Denmark.

This shows that they all have a common mid-Eastern starting point unaffected by the few genes that determine coloration.

Skin color and DNA only counts for so much.

The real basis for their commonality, distinction and uniqueness, and what ultimately sets them apart are the shared, values, goals, aspirations, beliefs and practices.

Jews were the scourge of Europe for 1,000 years not just because they were darker but didn’t share these things with the Christians, and looking like their neighbors didn’t save them from the Nazis.

Jews lived in Baghdad and Damascus for centuries before Christians or Muslims, and were indistinguishable in appearance but were ultimately outside the purveyance of Arab for the same reasons.

The DNA and adherence to various traditions is what makes Jews the same color unlike any other.

I’m at a loss to name that color but it’s definitely not white, maybe we can call it tekhelet.

KILLING CANARIES

Robert Beatoff O’Rourke, or as he’s affectionately called at the LoB homestead, Jonah Ryan (of ‘Veep’ fame), has once again shown himself to be ignorant, ignominious, and unfit.

Emulating mob stoking flatulence, he was last seen rallying his stooges with the cry of racism aimed at Benjamin Netanyahu.

Bibi had the gall to motivate his supporters to vote by pointing out that the opposition was providing buses to bring their voters, many of whom were Arab, to the polls.

Later we would learn that those buses were paid for by US taxpayers at the behest of Barack “Taqia We Don’t Interfere With Other Country’s Elections” Obama.

But that’s a snake with a different rattle.

It seems that politicians who don’t toe his line are racists, even though most Israelis are the same color as the Arabs.

Instead of critiquing policy, Baby Huey resorts to the convenience of making his target some one who most of his base will conflate with Jews.

Who have been the world’s canary in the coal mine for centuries?

Don’t think about what you are saying, just speak from the heart?

You just proved yourself heartless as well as brainless you Pike’s Peak of pedantry.

Beatoff who was probably the dweeb running sensitivity training sessions on dorm life for the incoming freshmen when he wasn’t organizing sit-ins on the quad to protest the last kegger running out of red solo cups.

Hey Robert-

You don’t know shit about Netanyahu.

You don’t know shit about racism.

You don’t know shit about Israel.

You don’t know shit about politics.

Here’s some advice for you, you human piece of excrement,

Put your head between your legs, suck your dick and

SHUT THE FUCK UP

 

A MAN FOR ALL SLEAZINS

Steny Hoyer again shows top Dems don’t dare stand up to anti-Semites in the ranks.

Nothing like telling people want they want to hear to their faces and then contradicting yourself after you walk away.

It’s gotten to the point that, when a top Democrat stands up against anti-Semitism, he soon feels the need to backtrack.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) won a standing ovation this week at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference when he pointedly said, “There are 62 freshman Democrats. You hear me? Sixty-two—not three.”

Just before that, he’d said: “When someone accuses American supporters of Israel of dual loyalty, I say: Accuse me. I am part of a large, bipartisan coalition in Congress supporting Israel. I tell Israel’s detractors: Accuse us.”

So everyone saw his reference to three Democratic frosh as a slap at headline-hogging Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Omar can’t manage to avoid anti-Semitic tropes, including the “dual loyalty” charge; Tlaib is bent on ending US aid to Israel; AOC defends them both.

But then Hoyer followed up the next day with a statement that walked back his words: “I was lamenting that the media does not appear to be paying enough attention to other excellent new members.”

So much for that profile in courage.

Hey Steny- shut the fuck up

SMOLETT’S MOVE ON

“As a Jew” I am bewitched, bothered & bewildered by the charges against half Jew, gay, black, “hate crime victim” Jussie Smollett being dropped.

I am nowhere near as outraged as are Chicago Mayor Emanuel or Police Superintendent Johnson.

Details were kept from all three of us concerning the deal.

Maybe it was a tit-for-tat response to President Trump not being indicted.

I’ve heard through anonymous sources that O.J. Simpson will be assisting Smollett in bringing the real perpetrators to justice.

AS A JEW

These three words are most often used as a preamble by Jews who have very little or no connection to Judaism as a smoke screen and a hammer to take sides against Israel and or other Jews.

Sometimes these words don’t have to be spoken for Jews to take sides against the best interest of the community or Israel.

Democrats, the party of treason, manages to produce elected officials that fit this bill.

I’m talking to you, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer.

You lilly livered, mealy mouthed, spineless, fish faced, enemies of your people.

You remain silent on the sidelines when Jews are slandered and libeled, showing more concern for those pressing the attack.

As a Jew, individually and collectively accept the challenge to heed the words of the prophet Jeremiah as he quotes from the Lord God.

But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward. 

They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.

Let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord.

You three slugs better grow some stones and pay more attention to those in your party who enable and enhance those who will spill Jewish blood than your treasonous efforts to dismantle the President.

Jewish lives are at stake and you will be held responsible in this life and the next.

ET TU BRUTUS? ET TU?

As the sinking ship known as Democrats goes down, how long will it be before talk of how they were stabbed in the back by those disloyal, ungrateful, hyper-white Joos is shouted from the mountain tops?

Jewish voters are furious at Dems’ defense of Ilhan Omar

Jewish voters furious at Democrats’ defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar say they’re done with the party that has held their support for generations. “We felt we had a home there,” said Mark Schwartz, the Democratic deputy mayor of solidly blue Teaneck, NJ. “And now we feel like we have to check our passports.”

Jordan Manor of Manhattan, who calls himself a “gay Jewish Israeli-American,” laments, “The party I thought cared about me seems to disregard me when it comes to my Jewish identity.”

Mark Dunec, a consultant in Livingston, NJ who ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2014, says, “I’m physically afraid for myself and for my family,” adding, “I see my own party contributing to the rise of anti-Semitism in the United States.”

Omar, a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota, sparked the firestorm in February for using anti-Jewish tropes: saying that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins” and accusing Jewish-American legislators of “dual loyalty.” Many, including some fellow Democrats, deemed her comments anti-Semitic—but the party’s lefty activists pushed back. “No one seeks this level of reprimand when members make statements about Latin + other communities,” complained Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a March 5 tweet. 

Omar issued only a partial apology. In response, the House passed a resolution condemning all “hateful expressions of intolerance” with kitchen-sink language that named nearly a dozen different groups. “I feel confident that [Omar’s] words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

Many Jewish Dems in the city aren’t buying it. “The fake defense she doesn’t know what she’s saying? I don’t believe it,” said Sara, a Queens teacher who asked not to be fully identified. “This is a grown woman and a member of Congress. Trying to excuse this as naivete is inexcusable.” For her and others, anger is sparking immediate action.

“The watered-down resolution triggered my decision to walk away from the Democratic Party,” said Allison Gangi of Manhattan. “I never dreamed anti-Semitism would have become mainstream on the left, but it has.”

Sara said she is “not comfortable anymore being a Democrat” and will register as an independent.

Among his Teaneck neighbors, Schwartz said, “Our only question now is, do we start voting Republican, or do we become Republicans?”

Others say they feel like the wandering Jew of legend. “I’m homeless. I don’t think I can vote for Trump, even though he’s great for Israel,” said Jason, a start-up owner from Long Island who asked that his surname not be used. “But as a Jew, I can’t see a way to support the Democratic Party. It’s supporting your own destruction.”

Last week, President Trump issued two tweets boosting “Jexodus,” a new advocacy group—advised by a prominent GOP strategist—that encourages moderate and conservative Jews to find a new political home. More than 4,000 people have signed on, organizers said.

“Since launching this, the anti-Semitism we are seeing is so blatant and obvious it’s terrifying,” said Elizabeth Pipko, the group’s spokeswoman and a volunteer on Trump’s 2016 campaign.
The organization’s Instagram and Facebook pages are regularly targeted with hateful messages, she said. “I leave them up, because people have got to see it,” Pipko said.

Could that be coffee that they smell?

JEWS AND POLITICAL SUICIDE

Star of David with shadow

From: The Times of Israel – February 2019

By Rabbi Benjamin Blech

To tell the truth I’m not surprised at the resurgence of anti-Semitism – not only across the world but even here in the United States. Anti-Semitism is an ancient sickness long ago predicted by the Torah and the prophets, historically rooted in theological hatred as well as xenophobic fears, and utilized by despots of every generation to scapegoat Jews as a way of diverting attention from their crimes.

What continues to amaze me though is – and let me be as blunt about it as possible – Jewish stupidity.

Jews are supposed to be smart. We never stop boasting, at least to ourselves, about the number of Nobel prize winners from our people, the amazing contributions we have made and continue to make to the world in every field of endeavor. Why is it then that when it comes to politics, to making our voices heard in ways which promote the most important areas of our self-interest and yes, even our survival, we seem to abdicate reason and side with those who make clear that they are our enemies?

A number of years ago, in a now classic article in Commentary magazine, Philip Himmelfarb made the astute observation that “Jews earn like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans.” Jews may have risen to financial security but their political support remained solidly for liberal causes in line with the disenfranchised and economically oppressed in the social order. Jews voted more in line with their liberal views than their personal needs.

Leonard Fein said it explicitly: “Politics is our religion; our preferred denomination is liberalism.” And that may have been fine a generation or two ago. Liberalism which preaches fairness, liberalism which is grounded in biblical and Jewish traditions of concern for fellow human beings, is a cause to which we may all subscribe with devotion.

But there is a tragic truth we have learned in the recent past. It has taken off on college campuses across the country. It has made its appearance in organizations ostensibly founded on liberal concern for justice and equal treatment for all, no matter race or religion. It has even, and most disconcerting, found an unlikely home in the Congress of the United States of America. It is nothing less than “hateful liberalism” – liberalism with love for all, just not for Jews; liberalism with fairness for all, just not for Israel.

In a collection of some of the best, funniest and most profound lines in cinema history critics cite the Oscar-winning Woody Allen movie Annie Hall and the scene where Alvy Singer, played by Alan, tells the woman who will become his first wife, “Right, I’m a bigot, I know, but for the left.” It is a revelation almost prophetic: bigots exist not only as fanatics on the right – they can also very often come in the form of bigots on the left.

Liberals who demand equality for the LGBT community and then side with the Palestinians against their Israeli “oppressors” seem to have no problem with the inherent contradiction that Palestinians throw gays off rooftops to their death while Israel permits gay parades as part of their being a democracy.

Liberals manage to overlook the “pay to slay” policy of Palestinians, giving lifetime rewards to Arab terrorists who murder innocents like 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher, a young Orthodox Jewish girl who was completing a year of compulsory national service in Israel working with children in a youth center in Jerusalem. Somehow there are a lot of bigots on the left- bigots whose hearts only bleed for non-Jewish blood and who couldn’t care in the least when the victims are victims of anti-Semitism, the oldest hate crime in history.

And now bigots have found a home in Congress. Bigots feel free to spew hate filled memes, in the words of Ilhan Omar calling on Americans to acknowledge that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” and that Israel is “an apartheid regime.”

BDS, the movement whose goal is to ultimately bring the very existence of Israel to an end, has a significant number of defenders in Congress, many of whom will be running for president in the next election.

So I return to my contention that when it comes to politics Jews somehow display an incredible level of stupidity. Politicians have come to take for granted that Jews are willing to forsake their self-interest. Yes, Jews earn like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans – but Puerto Ricans themselves are smart enough to vote for what is good for Puerto Ricans.

Why is it that only Jews think it is indecent for Jews to ask themselves at the voting booth the most obvious question, “is it good for the Jews?”

In a country where barely 50% go to the polls, Jewish voter turnout averages around 85%. In a presidential system based on electoral votes, where key “swing states” like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, Jews have sizable concentrations in southern Florida, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Detroit, Jews theoretically are blessed with considerable political power. That potential influence, however, is wasted and unlike any other voting block of comparable self-interest is negated by its unwillingness to identify and fight for its own causes.

Ilhan Omar was elected after her pro-Palestinian views and anti-Semitic tropes were already well known. She cruised to victory in November in Minnesota’s fifth district which encompasses Minneapolis and some of its suburbs, including St. Louis Park which has a large Jewish population. The seat opened up when 12 year incumbent representative Keith Ellison, with past ties with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, decided to run for state attorney general – to which he was in fact elected.

Jews are smart – but when it comes to politics we have a long history of stupidity. We still can’t believe we have enemies. We still can’t acknowledge there are evil people who want to destroy us. We still can’t recognize that those who express anti-Semitic ideas really mean what they say even if they subsequently offer halfhearted apologies.

In an age when the lessons of the Holocaust seem to have been condemned to forgetfulness we can’t afford to become victims of political suicide. It is high time for us, as every other group anxious about its own survival, to make “is it good for the Jews” a chief concern of our voting behavior.

WE HATE BECAUSE WE LOVE

According to the rules created by leftists and liberals Ilhan Omar’s remarks concerning Israel and AIPAC are offensive and hurtful.

They go beyond any microaggression that threatens my safe space and are equal to violence.

She deserves to be silenced for saying them and we reserve the right to use any and all means necessary to do so.

A NEW MANIFESTO

We believe in love and we love to hate whoever we so choose.

We want peace so much we will physically attack you if you don’t want peace as much as we do.

We won’t let anyone discriminate against immigrants, and won’t discriminate between productive law-abiding immigrants and those who come here illegally, commit crimes or sponge off the system.

We tolerate all except whoever disagrees with us.

We believe that the super rich, the rich, and the upper middle class made their money unethically if not illegally and need to have their wealth redistributed unless they are athletes, musicians, actors, academics, or leftist politicians.

Our right to free speech gives us the right to silence opposing opinions.

We oppose any oppression of Palestinians except those cases that can’t be blamed on Israel only a racist would call that anti-Semitic.

We are the most equal animals on the farm.

We used to be called Communists but now we are called Democrats, and are making the world safe for douchebags, assholes and lowlifes everywhere.
