Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), is expected to unleash a historic deluge of money in 2024 to defeat left-wing incumbents in primaries. These members were some of the most vehement critics of Israel.

"Our sole criteria in evaluating candidates is their position on the U.S.-Israel alliance. We will not only oppose detractors but also strongly support champions of the U.S.-Israel relationship," AIPAC Spokesman Wittman said, noting that the group has supported much of the House Democratic caucus, including "almost half" of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. (The group also backed dozens of Republicans who voted to overturn the 2020 election, a move that tarnished its brand in Washington.)

Because of the rabid anti-Semitism coming from members of the Squad it's forced people like Schumer to come out and oppose anti-Semitism. In spite of Biden's (which is a continuation of Obama's open hostility toward Israel) action of Iran appeasement and empowerment, he has been vocal in support of Israel resulting from the 10/7 attack and it's turned some party members (along with some voting blocs) against him.

"Is the far right ready to vote for cortez?"

That's a great question. There does seem to be a lot more commonality between the far left and the far right, specifically when it comes to anti-semitism.

Anti-semitism has been a thorn in the side of the liberal movement for almost as long as I can remember. Growing slowly nad incrementally. And right now it is out of control here in America. This is a big deal for the Democratic Party that will definitely affect levels of support (both for and against them) in 2024. The reason it is so hard to engage anti semitism head-on is because so much of it is linked to strong passions about the Palestinians and the events of the past two months. The moral dead zone of the Gaza Strip is a useless lens through which to view either Jewish or Muslim people.

The Conservative movement has the same anti-Semitic thorn, but for some reason it doesn't cause any pain to Conservatives. Or their movement.

This is just word play.

While there "commonality" is in the idea dimension, there isn't the equivalency in numbers, and/or actions.

"While there "commonality" is in the idea dimension, there isn't the equivalency in numbers, and/or actions."

That's true. It appears that anti-Israeli rioters are running the asylum at the moment. I think that if it were some weird anti-Israeli group with a lighter skin tone (or even a much darker skin tone), the authorities would be far less tolerant. I have to wonder if there may not be some concerns that actually trying to reign in Palestinian protesters might lead to more violence. Or even terrorist attacks within the US by anti-Israeli groups.

"Jews Will Not Replace Us is not just word play."

How about "From the river to the Sea?" Which is basically another way of saying "We will replace the Jews."

Word play?

BTW, did you know that HAMAS had it's own final solution to the Jewish Question? Not just jews. Everyone, really.

You should read their charter. Have a better idea of what you're supporting.

A foreign nation openly admits it plans to influence our elections?

Then what's the big deal about Russia working with the Trump administration?

The truly far left and right will always have much in common.

That's why normal people talk about things like a two-state solution and ending the bombing of Gaza as opposed to killing everyone in israel.

Well, let's not be too hasty. Tell me more about this "kill everyone" plan you're proposing.

Aipac whines about the squad but continues to support the GOP which won't fund Israel's war , either.
Funny that.
Then again, MAGA messiah says Nazis are fine people and aipac is fine with him.

I am a big fan of AOC. She is smart, clever and usually several steps ahead of her detractors. And unlike several of her "squad" sisters she has managed to unambiguously condemn the Hamas terrorist invasion, while still focusing on the human rights abuses suffered by the Palestinian civilian population. I do not believe that actual intelligence such as she displays ever really faces an "existential threat". It is the idiots who have not yet figured out how to articulate a balanced and justice-based position who are getting squashed in the MSM. Tlaib, for example.

Being anti-Israel policies is not anti-semitism. In fact, it is possible to be pro Israel and anti Israel policies. Think of it as "tough love".

Dual citizenship should be forbidden for members of Congress or for any in government bureaucracy as it is for any other country and as it once was for naturalized US citizenship.

Do they all have two passports? Being born out of the US does not necessarily mean you have dual citizenship. Ted Cruz being an example.

Ted Cruz is/was a Canadian citizen. He claims to have renounced his Canadian credentials in 2013 but I've yet to see his longform application.

Raphael Cruz. I refuse to accept the name he identifies as.
