The Democratic Party stands at a crossroads today. And so do the Jewish Democrats. Out of power in the White House and both houses of Congress, the Democrats must decide what sort of party they will be in the post-Obama world.
They have two basic options.
They can move to the center and try to rebuild their blue collar voter base that President-elect Donald Trump captivated with his populist message. To do so they will need to loosen the reins of the political correctness and weaken their racialism, their radical environmentalism and their support for open borders.
This is the sort of moderate posture that Bill Clinton led with. It is the sort of posture that Clinton tried but failed to convince his wife to adopt in this year’s campaign.
The second option is to go still further along the leftist trajectory that President Barack Obama set the party off on eight years ago. This is the favored option of the Bernie Sanders’ wing of the party. Sanders’ supporters refer to this option as the populist course. It is being played out today on the ground by the anti-Trump protesters who refuse to come to terms with the Trump victory and insistently defame Trump as a Nazi or Hitler and his advisors as Goebbels.
For the Democrats, such a populist course will require them to become more racialist, more authoritarian in their political correctness, angrier and more doctrinaire.
It will also require them to become an anti-Semitic party.
Anti-Semitism, like hatred of police and Christians are necessary components of . . . . . . . Lees verder bij Caroline Glick >>>
UPDATE 19 NOVEMBER 20016:
Toch nog even iets over twee feiten die Glick wat terloops meldt: Ellison is moslim. Iets minder terloops is ze over zijn Twin Towers-Reichstagbrand-analogie. Maar misschien moeten we toch iets meer nadruk leggen op het feit dat we hier een zwarte moslim hebben die helemaal past in de synergie van regressief links en de islam. In Amerika worden de stoottroepen van het zwarte deel van collaborerend regressief-links gevormd door de fascistische haat-en-leugen-beweging Black Lives Matter, die zwaar islamitisch geïnfiltreerd is.
Het gesproken woord in bovenstaand filmpje is een beetje moeilijk verstaanbaar, dus wordt dat door de Washington Free Beacon Press aldus verduidelijkt:
“Remember 9/11. Right? You had never had all this discrimination against religious minorities but for 9/11,” Ellison said. “You had it, but you didn’t have it to the degree that we have it now. 9/11 is this juggernaut event in American history, and it allows—it’s almost like, you know, the Reichstag fire kind of reminds me of that. Does anybody know what I’m talking about?”
“But who benefited from 9/11?” an audience member asked.
“Well, I mean, you know, you and I both know,” Ellison said.
“Yeah, Bush,” the audience member replied, a clear reference to then-President George W. Bush.
“But the thing is that, you know, after the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted,” Ellison said.
Wikipedia geeft als onderschrift bij deze foto: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi (left) swearing in Ellison (right) with Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an”
Daaruit zou je kunnen opmaken dat Jefferson sympathie had voor de islam en de Koran. Not so!
In 1786, Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain. They asked this ‘diplomat’ by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved her citizens and why the Muslims held such hostility toward this new nation, with which neither Tripoli nor any of the other Barbary Coast nations had any previous contact. The answer was quite revealing. Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja (the ambassador) replied that Islam:
“Was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
That is indeed quite revealing. Yet, America continued paying ransoms to these terrorists for the next fifteen years or so. Until Jefferson became President. Then, the Pasha (leader) of Tripoli sent a demand to the new leader for an immediate payment of $225,000 and $25,000 per year on an ongoing basis. Jefferson flatly refused, leading the Pasha to cut down the flagpole of the American consulate and declaring war on the United States. The rest of the terrorist states followed suit.
Jefferson had formerly been against raising a navy, but this soon changed as he was determined to meet force with force. A squadron of vessels was sent to the area and Congress authorized Jefferson to have the US ships seize all vessels and goods that belonged to the Pasha and anything else deemed necessary. As they saw the US was actually committed to the fight, Algiers and Tunis quickly abandoned the war and allegiance to Tripoli. Obviously, the US won the war. In fact, this was the reason why the line “to the shores of Tripoli” was added to the Marine Corps hymn.
