Newly installed House Democrat Ilhan Omar recently made a racist, anti-Semitic statement about Jews in general and Israel in particular which raised the hackles of all thinking Americans, and places in question not only the quality of people the Democrats allow in their party, but also the wisdom of the people voting for such fools and putting them in office.
Of course, Nancy Pelosi was appropriately, but unconvincingly, shocked by the comment, while at the same time defending and criticizing Ms. Omar as a bumbling fool for not being able to predict the hurt her remarks would cause other people. But Ms. Omar doesn’t care at all for the hurt her idiotic remarks may cause. She hates Jews, and fighting them and trying to eliminate them is her only interest. So Ms. Pelosi, the leader of the House of Representatives, swore she would generate legislation that would make Ms. Omar’s remarks prohibited and off limits for the House in the future.
But when the legislation was voted on it made no reference to Ms. Omar, who was the sole cause for the bill in the first place and whose nasty remarks about Jews was the subject of the bill, and instead called for no more off-hand remarks for LGBT groups, people who blush easily, people-of-color, people who don’t mix well in groups, people who have blunt noses; I think you get the point: the legislation made white males culpable for all instances of bigotry and hate, and gave Omar a complete pass, because as we all know, and as CNN’s Don Lemon reminds us frequently, the only racist, homophobic, hate-filled people in America are white, patriotic, males, especially those who voted for Donald Trump in 2016. So instead of pointing a finger of guilt at the real racist, Ms. Omar, the Democrat legislation branded all American white males as being bad persons and left the real anti-Semitic, racist free of any charge.
But the interesting thing to make note of in this matter is that David Duke and Louis Farrakhan both issued statements of agreement with Ms. Omar’s vicious statement about Jews, so at least if Nancy Pelosi is unable to identify a racist she is working with every day of the week, at least racists can identify each other. One only hopes Omar, Duke and Farrakhan meet privately so no one else has to see or hear any of them ever again.
And as far as international relations goes, Ms. Omar is in the finest of company, because one hears reports of French Jews immigrating to Israel in increasing numbers because of anti-Jewish sentiment and a disturbing number of attacks on Jews in the stylish and trend-setting nation of France. The French and Ms. Omar deserve each other.
