At a time when anyone who even leans slightly to the Right in American politics is considered by the Democratic Party and their purportedly “mainstream” media allies to be little more than domestic terrorists and Nazis—deplorables, to use a tired phrase—the Democrats out themselves as the true extremists. After all, the Democratic Party has been the home to virulent antisemitism (under the Marxist guise of “decolonization” related to the State of Israel).
Notable Democratic Party leaders, such as Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota (by way of Somalia), Rashida Tlaib of Michigan (originally of the Palestinian Territories), and the venerable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York (from the bourgeoise New York suburb of Yorktown Heights) have all shared their toxic antisemitic hatred in the days following Israel’s worst terrorist attack.
Omar has yet to delete her noxious lie that Israel blew up a Palestinian hospital and murdered 500 people in the wake of the Hamas terrorist attack that murdered more than 1,300 people and kidnapped over 100 more. Tlaib proudly flies the Palestinian flag in her taxpayer-funded office.
And AOC, the ultimate propagandist, has deflected by insisting that the Republicans are the real antisemites.
New York University professors appeared to receive joy from the sight of innocent Israeli families being murdered by Hamas. Harvard students signed a petition explicitly blaming the victims of the attack that was subsequently denounced by the university (interesting, wouldn’t you say, from the party that created the “Me Too” movement?)
Recognizing Political Maniacs for Who They Are
Alas, the veil has totally fallen from the face of the Left.
Their overt embrace of genocidal mania has reached a crescendo. Even otherwise Liberal donors of top American universities are permanently pulling their funding back from these universities, in horror at the appearance of extreme antisemitism being displayed by the students and faculty of these educational institutions.
Incredibly, these institutions pushing the most radical and divisive gender and racial grievance studies on the country were not enough to get major donors to pull back over the years.
One could argue that these should have been the first warning signs to mega-donors and supporters of these political movements and educational institutions.
First comes the denial of reality then comes rabid antisemitism. After that, of course, one gets the wild embrace of genocide as a political tool. That tends to be where most modern revolutions take us.
Sadly, it’s no different here in the United States.
It was the Left’s arrogant and cartoonish championing of Hamas that has turned off many otherwise stalwart, wealthy supporters of the Democratic Party.
Poetic Justice: Canceling the Cancelers
Those Harvard students who signed the petition blaming Israel for being violently attacked by Hamas, by the way, are being blacklisted.
There’s a certain poetic justice in the cancelers becoming canceled, is there not?
It has the very feel of a Cultural Revolution to it. Not that I support “cancel culture.” But when it comes to defending terrorism and genocide, one must recognize that even free speech has its limits.
Not to worry, though, since they belong to the anointed ones, the Harvard students have already “taken back” their support for Hamas. All will be forgiven. But if you post on social media about supporting Donald Trump prepare to have your life ruined.
Besides, as Mao showed us during his reign of terror, the revolution never ends. The French revolutionaries proved a century and a half earlier than Mao, the revolution devours itself. But it only devours itself, as the Bolsheviks displayed, after it kills scores of innocent people.
The best thing for America and its society would be to expel the raging Leftists from public life permanently. We must stop this revolutionary zeal from the Left. They will lead us to the greater immiseration of our country unless they are stopped.
We Must End Leftist Radicalism
Preventing the Leftist revolution in America means calling them out on their lies. And holding them accountable for those prevarications. The truth to a radical Left-winger is the equivalent of ideological chemotherapy treatment: painful but necessary if one wishes to survive the Woke mind virus.
The next time a Leftist labels you or a friend who happens to lean Republican as an “extremist,” remember they’re the ones who endorse genocide and terrorism directed against the Jews of Israel.
The Left always shows you who they truly are.
The real extremists here are not the grandmas and grandpas who don “MAGA” hats and write long screeds about how Donald Trump is playing four-dimensional chess.
The true threat to our liberty comes from the bloody-minded, revolutionary Left. They tell us who they are all the time. We just often choose to ignore them – at our own peril.
