Racist Liars? Democrats Sneaky Defense of Antisemitism Proves Their Race Problem Isn’t Just About Israel.
When the House Democratic leader is forced to publicly proclaim “Israel is not a racist state,”465 we have a problem. The latest antisemitic firestorm touched off by extreme progressive Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) forced Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) to attempt a veiled mea culpa with two press releases to prove once and for all that Democrats are not antisemitic racists.
The truth doesn’t require a lengthy explanation. Lies do.
A simple denial or better yet, condemnation of Jayapal’s remark that our ally is racist wouldn’t suffice. Jeffries knows his party has a problem with Israel that he doesn’t have the courage to call out for the racism it is, so he left Democrats an out by insinuating that Republicans are part of the problem:
Certainly, there are individual members of the current Israeli governing coalition with whom we strongly disagree. That is also the case with respect to some on the other side of the aisle who we serve with in the United States Congress.466
He shamelessly took credit for House passage of Republican H.Con.Res.57, “Expressing the sense of Congress supporting the State of Israel:”
The decisive vote by House Democrats in support of the Israel resolution once again demonstrates our strong commitment to the State of Israel and her right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people.467
What Jeffries didn’t say was why only two Democrats agreed to join the 45 Republicans who cosponsored the resolution. He also failed to explain the nine NO votes from his party, including those from established antisemitic Representatives Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
Jeffries’ fear of offending anti-Israel progressives shows how tolerant party leadership is for racism that aligns with progressives’ extreme, far-left agenda that ultimately condemns Biden White House policies as racist, too. I’ll get to that in a moment.
Jayapal offers a stupidly transparent excuse for her comment. She wants us to know that she doesn’t believe Israel is racist, but Israel’s government most certainly is:
I do not believe the idea of Israel as a nation is racist. I do, however, believe that Netanyahu’s extreme right-wing government has engaged in discriminatory and outright racist policies and that there are extreme racists driving that policy within the leadership of the current government. I believe it is incumbent on all of us who are striving to make our world a more just and equitable place to call out and condemn these policies and this current Netanyahu government’s role in furthering them.468
Denouncing Israel’s politicians instead of the State of Israel doesn’t change anything. Progressives’ stance against our ally remains the same regardless of their target, as we saw with their support of the anti-Israel BDS movement that targeted the nation as a whole.
Bowman demands we hold allies accountable for human rights violations.
There is wisdom in knowing when to keep your mouth shut, a truism lost on Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) who justified joining other Squad members in their boycott of Israeli President Isaac Herzog’s July 19, 2023 address to Congress:
From Israel to India, we must hold our allies accountable when it comes to human rights violations and the abuses of far-right governments, which is why I will not be attending Israeli President Isaac Herzog’s address to Congress this Wednesday.469
If progressives want to discuss human rights violations, they don’t need to look overseas. They can visit their own backyard.
This is a party of racist liars.
Black Americans are slaughtered in the cities Democrats govern while the party demands that we defund the police to please their liberal donors. Migrants are lured to America by the Democrat Party and their president, caged like animals, and then shipped around the country like chattel so they can take low-wage jobs no one wants that guarantee a life in poverty and then one day – if they are very lucky – earn the right to vote for Democrats.
This is a party with a racist agenda that claims ownership of Black Americans as evidenced by attacks on Black Republicans and their president’s historic, racist “You Ain’t Black” comment to voters. These are politicians who insinuate that people of color don’t possess the intelligence to obtain identification so they can vote in states that seek to protect this fundamental right with voter ID laws.
This is a party of racist liars. If Democrats would just come out and admit the truth we already know, it would make things a lot easier. Thank Rep. Bowman for demanding accountability for human rights violations. His district is in true blue New York, so he certainly has the experience to know what he’s talking about when he accuses Israel of human rights violations Democrat Party policies create right here in America.
Jeffries and Schumer push Democrats Big Lie about justice in America.
It’s time for Democrats to receive their comeuppance for years of bad behavior and no accountability whatsoever for partisan political attacks on America. The Trump-Russia Steele dossier, no accountability for Hillary’s email server, the Hunter Biden laptop coverup, two failed impeachments of a sitting Republican president, and their sham January 6th Kangaroo Court emboldened party members to take the next step and use their weaponized Department of Justice and federal court system to deny Republican voters the candidate of our choice.
It’s understandable that they are soiling themselves over what a legitimate challenge means for their mumbling, stumbling presidential talking head’s quest for a second term. Democrats will do anything not to lose control of the White House. They shamelessly pretend that the business dealings of President Biden and his family are nothing out of the ordinary, but there is simply too much damning information to deflect. No matter what they say to downplay the House Oversight Committee’s revelations, more keep coming.
As we learned from the Steele dossier and Russia collusion hoax, when it comes to Democrats persecuting Donald Trump there are no limits to lying. That maxim includes this falsehood from Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) after their party’s weaponized DOJ launched Biden’s newest assault on his likely 2024 opponent yesterday:
This indictment is the most serious and most consequential thus far and will stand as a stark reminder to generations of Americans that no one, including a president of the United States, is above the law. The legal process must continue to move forward without any outside interference.470
Is there a typo in their statement? Did they mean to say “no Republican” is above the law? We know for a fact that this doesn’t apply to any prominent Democrat and certainly not to a Clinton or Biden and his family, which we should assume are protected from the law by inside interference by the DOJ.
Schumer and Jeffries accuse Trump of a “criminal plot led by the former president to defy democracy and overturn the will of the American people.”471 Circumventing the will of the people is precisely what Democrats seek to do. The newest fusillade against Trump is a disgusting, unforgivable low point in their quest to take over America and end legitimate political opposition to the Democrat Party agenda once and for all. If they get away with dictating who can run for political office on the Republican ticket, democracy in America is finished.
Jeffries and Schumer refer to the Capitol as “the very symbol and home of American patriotism and democracy …”472 while pushing their Big Lie about justice and the rule of law. Their party’s efforts to put an end to democracy’s interference with the radical left’s political goals is anti-American, anti-democracy, and above all else, anti-patriotism. No one who loves our country would venture down this road but unlike Trump, loving America is not something these disgusting partisan hacks seem to worry about.
President celebrates another historic Democrat Party fraud perpetrated on the American people.
Last week President Biden admitted to something we already knew. During a campaign appearance in Utah he fessed up that his Inflation Reduction Act should have been called something else:
The end result of a lot of these things — and, by the way, the Inflation Reduction Act — I wish I hadn’t called it that, because it has less to do with reducing inflation than it does to do with dealing with providing for alternatives that generate economic growth. 473
What the president didn’t admit is that this legislation was falsely called an inflation reduction bill because he joined Democrats to willfully push policies that skyrocketed inflation, raised prices, and hurt Americans. He told us what we wanted to hear about fixing the problems they created while the real goal was making good on promises to fund the priorities of radical left climate extremists.
The radicals got their money. We got lies about how our lives were getting better.
Republicans had a different take on Biden’s “$470 billion in private sector investment commitments:”474
These out of control “green” handouts are going to cost American communities an estimated $1.2 trillion, according to independent analysis by Goldman Sachs, nearly $1 trillion higher than original estimates.475
There is a word for this: fraud. There is also a word for our president and the Democrats who supported this bill: liars.
Too proud and shameless to lie about what “inflation reduction” really means, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey’s (D-MA) “Delivering a Green New Deal” comes clean about Democrats’ climate hustle:
The recently enacted Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) delivers hundreds of billions of dollars in funding for key Green New Deal goals on climate action, clean energy, and environmental justice.476
In case we didn’t understand the first time:
The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) provide an historic opportunity to deliver on the most significant climate and clean energy investments in our nation’s history, putting us on a path to take on the climate crisis, repair historic harms to low-income and disadvantaged communities, and create good, union jobs.477
Biden falsely claims he’s reducing the cost of living
Campaign appearances only seem to stoke the president’s preference for lies. During the Utah stop he celebrated this historic Democratic Party fraud, claiming “we’re literally reducing the cost of people being able to make their — meet their basic needs.”478
This is not true and anyone who shops at a grocery store or doesn’t have the cash for gas or applies for a mortgage knows it. The president didn’t mention food during his remarks. Gas only came up because he wanted his audience to know about the tax credit for used electric cars.
The House Budget Committee warns that prices are 15.5% higher under this administration. Inflation is three times higher. In fact, the cost of living for an average family has gone up $1,143 per month compared to what it was when Biden took over the Trump economy.479 Furthermore, as The Washington Stand observes, annual inflation is down but it still exceeds our 20, 30, and 40-year averages.480
Every month the Bureau of Labor Statistics updates what it costs to live in a Bidenomics economy:
The food index increased 0.2 percent in July  after increasing 0.1 percent the previous month. The index for food at home increased 0.3 percent over the month while the index for food away from home rose 0.2 percent in July. The energy index rose 0.1 percent in July as the major energy component indexes were mixed.480
Those numbers are going in the wrong direction. No amount of climate spending we can’t afford seems destined to bring them down.
At the end of another inflation reduction victory lap today, the president made a perfunctory stab at unity he does nothing to foster:
And there’s nothing, nothing, nothing beyond our capacity when we do it together.481
He is correct. Democrats lied to us as one. With no accountability on the horizon for Trump Russia, one good fraud most certainly deserves another.
