Personally I want representatives to speak the truth….but that is impossible in some cases in DC…..and thwe biggest one is criticism of AIPAC as Rep. Omar has learned….
Omar singled out AIPAC, one of the most influential lobbying groups in Washington, as the source of those donations.
Omar’s comments touched upon a long-running, and particularly ugly, thread of the anti-Semitic movement — that Jewish money fuels backing for Israel in the United States and elsewhere. A freshman Democrat, Max Rose of New York, said, “Congresswoman Omar’s statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself.”
And the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee is a non-profit that doesn’t donate directly to candidates. AIPAC, however, does relentlessly push a pro-Israeli message on Capitol Hill and inside the executive branch, and its members donate to pro-Israel lawmakers and candidates while seeking to defeat those it considers a threat to U.S.-Israeli relations.
And then the mental midget Kevin McCarthy had to put his babble into the discussion…
Omar has come under fire from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other Republicans over her comments criticizing Israel, both remarks made since her election to Congress and long before she even began her political career.
McCarthy and other Republicans have pressed Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and top Democrats to “take action” against Omar and Tlaib, saying he would do so if the GOP were the majority party.
McCarthy added: “Anti-Semitic tropes have no place in the halls of Congress. It is dangerous for Democrat leadership to stay silent on this reckless language.”
He, slow McCarthy, made my point for me….does he know what antisemitism actual is? Apparently NOT! And they trust this slug to count votes…..(insert raucous laughter)
Speaking truth is not antisemitism!
Does AIPAC spend a lot of money on Congress? You bet your ass it does!
Please someone call these moron d/bags out on the lies they spread!
I pray these brave women continue to speak out and putting these old white a/holes in their place……Pelosi needs to grow a pair and step up to these women’s defense….and NOW!
After I wrote this draft news has come that she had issued an apology…..
Omar did tweet a statemement Monday saying, among other things, “I unequivocally apologize,” but she added that she stands behind her criticism of “the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics,” including AIPAC.
She did what the cowards of the DNC wanted….so it is DONE!
The mash up was nothing but a diversion…..but the truth that will not be said……the Dems are bought!
The MSM has shown exactly who controls their content especially on this issue.
Why did the media not fact check her statement for accuracy?
I know why!
It would be too embarrassing when the truth came out…..that is why!
But let me introduce you to the Israeli Lobbying scheme…..
Electronic Intifada obtained and published the four-part series, but it did so during the week of the midterm elections, and the documentary did not get a lot of attention then.
In it, leaders of the pro-Israel lobby speak openly about how they use money to influence the political process, in ways so blunt that if the comments were made by critics, they’d be charged with anti-Semitism.
