Earlier this week we shared the article MINNESOTA DEMOCRATS UNHAPPY & ARE CONSIDERING PRIMARY CHALLENGE TO REMOVE OMAR. In it, we shared a few thoughts about how the Democrats in Minnesota, specifically in Omar’s district, are starting to wake up to the fact that they are losing ground by continuing to coddle the AOC-Tlaib-Omar trio of freshmen Congresswomen, Omar in particular. She has repeatedly made anti-semitic remarks, and even when called on the carpet by Nancy Pelosi and forced to apologize, the apparent insincerity of the apology didn’t help the party. The Jewish community has voted Democrat for many years, but it seems they’re starting to abandon the party in crowds due in no small part to Omar’s rhetoric.
The Democratic Party’s refusal last week to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) explicitly for her repeated use of antisemitic language, or even to condemn antisemitism on its own, was a major blow to the Jewish community of the United States.
The Democrats’ refusal to take action, either declarative or substantive, against Omar for her repeated assaults on the Jewish community’s right to stand with Israel – America’s most powerful and stable ally in the Middle East — indicated that antisemitism isn’t simply a regrettable attribute of a few, junior members of the party. It is a major political force and ideology animating the party’s governing structures.
If the situation were otherwise, it should have been easy, as a practical matter for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to censure Omar just as the House Republicans censured Rep. Steven King (R-IA) for his comments to the New York Times, which were widely interpreted as supportive of white supremacism.
Even though Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) are not anti-Semites, their inability to discuss openly, or even to acknowledge, Omar’s antisemitism showed that they do not control their members. The rising forces in the caucus, and particularly the Congressional Black Caucus, whose members openly support leader Louis Farrakhan — the notoriously anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam — are themselves institutionally antisemitic. Once the Congressional Black Caucus decided to rally behind Omar, it was impossible for Pelosi and Hoyer, not to mention the senior Jewish lawmakers in the caucus, to take any action against her.

In my lifetime, the old Democrat party moved light years away from what it once was as compared to the present day. It was Ronald Reagan who said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic party, the Democratic Party left me.” The new congresswomen are, at least for the moment, running roughshod over Speaker Pelosi. The younger ones have a lot more energy (which makes sense – Pelosi is pushing 80 when the youngest is AOC at 29) and are much more focused in their pursuit of control.
It seems to be a given that if the Jewish community rallies its membership against Omar, they will turn to the Republican side of the roster, and perhaps it will be a turning point by which we’ll see the Democrat party crumble into the pages of history.
