Mark Steyn notes that the Left is becoming ever more accommodating to the ever growing number of Jew haters in their ranks:
Whereas Corbyn’s Labour Party is very much Europe’s future: the alliance between the secular left and Islam. Whatever the squeamishness of the few remaining old-school Judeophile socialists, they understand where the basic math of the new demography is leading.
Could it happen in America? Well, consider Ilhan Omar, a savvy Somali who briefly married her brother for the purposes of immigration fraud and yet became the darling of the new Minnesota Democrats. She’s been in Congress barely a month, but already it’s clear her horribles parade never ends: She has said that with Jews it’s “all about the benjamins” – which is the same message as that Aalst parade, yet made by an already influential US Congresswoman.
The old Democrats, like old Labour, roused themselves to object, and determined to pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism. It was thin gruel, but even so Democrat House members were stunned by the “outpouring of support for Omar“. So in order to make the resolution less “contentious” it will now be modified to condemn Islamophobia, too.
I’m very bored by the smooth taqqiya Muslims who profess to dig the interfaith outreach. On balance, I prefer the likes of Ms Omar, who just can’t help herself. She’ll back down a little when Nancy Pelosi orders her to, but forty-eight hours later comes roaring Tweeting back …and dares the Democrats to call her on it.
The House Leadership just backed down. Like Corbyn in London, it can no longer even insist on its anti-Semitic bona fides without weaseling and equivocating. That’s very telling – and, unlike puppet grotesques in a medieval Lenten parade, it’s not the last throes of the past but a glimpse of the future.
Go here to read the rest. Karl Marx once called anti-Semitism the Socialism of fools. It would seem that today anti-Semitism is becoming an essential part of being a socialist.
