Democrats Can’t Agree to Condemn Bigotry After Ilhan Omar’s Follies

Hate has no place in America, the land of freedom and equality. If the democrats can’t recognize that, maybe they don’t belong either.

The democratic Civil War may be fully upon us now, just months away from the prime chronological real estate of the 2020 election.

Washington DC is in the throes of utter chaos at the moment.  While that may not seem like something new, the variety of ill-will on Capitol Hill has never been more worrisome.

In particular, a strong and pungent whiff of anti-semitism seems to be percolating within the democratic party, with freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar having, on several occasions, used bigoted, Jewish stereotypes to disparage Israel and her people.  You would think that this would be a simple incident for the democrats to rally around, and unite in their condemnation of, but quite the opposite seems to be occurring.

Tensions ran high at a caucus meeting Wednesday as some Democrats privately vented that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team had failed to adequately respond to the escalating political crisis, with too little outreach to their own rank and file.

Freshman Rep. Jahana Hayes of Connecticut stood up and confronted Pelosi directly, arguing that she shouldn’t have to learn about the official Democratic Caucus response from MSNBC. Hayes said she now has to vote on a resolution that she’s barely read, without a private briefing from leadership, according to five sources.

Saying no to bigotry and hate should never be this difficult.

Pelosi countered that the Democratic measure to condemn anti-Semitism is not final, though text had been circulating and a vote had been tentatively planned for Wednesday. That vote was postponed amid a last-minute backlash from progressives in the caucus.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) later told reporters that leadership hadn’t decided whether a vote on the resolution would take place this week, adding, “We’re working on language.“

Pelosi also said Democratic leaders were forced to respond quickly over the weekend — a task made trickier with Omar on a congressional delegation trip to East Africa over the weekend.

Madame House Speaker isn’t making things any easier.

As Hayes was then talking to another member, Pelosi said, “Well if you’re not going to listen to me, I’m done talking,” then set down the microphone and walked out of the room, the sources said.

Hate has no place in America, the land of freedom and equality.

If the democrats can’t recognize that, maybe they don’t belong either.

Melania Trump Addresses America In COVID-19 PSA Brandishing Face Mask

Published

on

First Lady Melania Trump has made a public service announcement video concerning the coronavirus, featuring her wearing a face mask, urging other folks across the country to do the same when they leave their homes and head out into public. The suggestion of wearing a face mask comes directly from recommendations created by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that say, “that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures can be difficult to maintain,” Trump said. “Remember, this does not replace the importance of social distancing. It is another recommended guideline to keep us all safe.” The first lady didn’t wear the mask in the video, but with the photograph that accompanied the PSA she had one on. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: https://twitter.com/FLOTUS/status/1248249626949562368 https://twitter.com/FLOTUS/status/1248277174072860672 “I ask that everyone take social distancing & wearing a mask/face covering seriously,” she tweeted Friday and Sunday. Her Friday tweet was posted minutes after President Trump announced the new recommendation to wear nonmedical, cloth face coverings, reversing his administration’s previous guidance that they were unnecessary for people who were not sick. President Trump, however, has said he’s probably not going to abide by these recommendations, noting that he would probably look foolish attempting to speak with world leaders while wearing a mask. “Somehow, sitting in the Oval Office, sitting behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens, I don’t know, I just don’t see it for myself,” Trump said. The president said that the guidance is completely voluntary and went on to communicate that if he really thought it was important to wear the masks, he would.

Joy Behar Not Retiring From ‘The View,’ Says She Provides ‘Employment For Right-Wing Media’

Published

Joy Behar, the cantankerous co-host of majority left-wing show, “The View,” has shot down rumors that she’s about to retire from the show, announcing on the air that she was planning on sticking around for a little bit longer. I know, I know. I’m always the bearer of bad news. Sorry to dash your hopes, y’all. Behar spoke about the rumors on Thursday’s program saying, “They’re always talking about my leaving the show, but I’m not, I’m not leaving the show — let me say the rumors of my retirement have been greatly exaggerated. Here’s the thing: What am I going to do? This pandemic has changed the game.” She went on to add: “Let’s not forget that I provide employment for right-wing media. I mean, I am a job creator over at Breitbart. Everything I say appears on Breitbart. I don’t see, you know, how I could leave.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Behar was forced to dispel the rumors after Variety ran a piece on Wednesday, which quoted the host saying she may be ready to move on from the show. “I have a three-year contract,” Behar said in the interview, which will appear in the book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View’ by Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh. “But that doesn’t mean I can’t leave if I want to, because they can’t really do anything to me at this point. I don’t see myself staying for more [time]. That’s it! I could be wrong. If I’m as fabulous in [2022] as I am now, I’ll think about,” she continued. “But the chances of that happening … you know, time marches on. I’m not a kid.” And here we thought there might be some sort of chance to get rid of her and…
