Democrats Creating a ‘Safe Space’ for Anti-Semitism? Why Republicans Are Sounding an Alarm | CBN News

https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/politics/2019/february/democrats-creating-a-safe-space-for-anti-semitism-why-republicans-are-sounding-an-alarm

The rights favorite bogeyman.

Barely one month after Ilhan Omar joined congress as a freshman Justice Democrat representing the state of Minnesota , she was falsely accused of anti-Semitic tropes and smeared as an anti-Semite , simply because she dared criticize Israel’s influence on the U.S. government through AIPAC. She has since apologized , but Republicans seem determined to punish her anyway , because she refuses to blindly support Israel and turn a blind eye to its transgressions against Palestinians.

The title of this article is laughably absurd , and it’s factually incorrect. It’s also absurd – and hypocritical – of Republicans to call for Omar’s resignation , when certain members of their own party have been far more guilty of antisemitism , and have yet to be called out by Republicans , or the president.

  • Kevin McCarthy. The day after George Soros received a failed pipe bomb by a Trump supporter , the House Minority Leader tweeted that Soros , Michael Blomberg , and Tom Steyer , all Democratic donors , might try to buy the mid term elections. He later deleted the tweet.
  • Louie Gohmert. Arguably the dumbest senator in congress , Gohmert went on Fox Business with Stuart Varney to talk about the supposed bias against conservatives on Google , but found time to attack the Republican party’s favorite bogeyman , George Soros. “He’s supposed to be Jewish ,” Gohmert said , “but you wouldn’t know it from the damage he’s inflicted on Israel. And the fact that he’s turned on fellow Jews and helped ( Nazis ) take the property that they owned.”
    Gohmert , like any conservative who believes in conspiracy theories , has never validated such accusations , and believes Soros was also responsible for sponsoring the migrant caravan that was hyped on Fox News as a crises to justify a ridiculous wall. He also believed the Democrats might have been involved in organizing the Unite The Right in Charlottesville. On Fox Business he said : “This has been stirred up and I think the Democrats , I mean this needs an investigation. And the president or the AG can appoint an independent council – this is so political. This is being driven by forces of evil that are beyond what normal people think about. How do you have instances of people with KKK shirts and Black Lives Matter shirts getting off the same bus? I mean somebody must be stoking this.”
  • Matt Gaetz. The Florida Republican , invited Chuck Johnson a right wing internet troll , proliferator of fake news , and an anti-Semite , to the State Of The Union address. Johnson believes the Jewish holocaust never happened , and Gaetz later defended him , by saying , to the effect that , he was neither a holocaust denier or a white supremacist.
    Gaetz has also shared anti Soros memes connecting him to the migrant caravan.
  • Paul Gosar. A Republican from Arizona so extreme in his politics , even his siblings want nothing to do with him. In the mid terms they created an ad calling him out , and endorsed his Democratic opponent. In addition to being a birther , Gosar has previously suggested that the Nazi marchers at the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville , were really leftists led by an Obama sympathizer , and that George Soros had sponsored the event to make the right look bad. This belief was also shared by other Republicans , like Dinesh D’Souza , Louie Gohmert , Rush Limbaugh , Allen West , and by fake news sites like World Net Daily , the Gateway Pundit , and American Thinker.

The article also quotes Marco Rubio : “There’s a growing group of people in the Democratic party that are openly anti-Israel , and I think they’re afraid of them.”

Yes , so afraid , that most of them openly condemned Omar’s alleged antisemitism , and joined the Republicans in smearing her. Every Democratic member of congress supports Israel , even the progressive Democrats. Criticism of Israel does not make one automatically anti-Israel.

There are actual safe spaces where antisemitism is tolerated and enabled. But one of those places is not the Democratic party , or the progressive movement. Those safe spaces are the Republican party , right wing media , and social media. Conservatives have shared and spread anti-Semitic memes and conspiracy theories – mostly about Soros – on line for years. Conservative media , including Fox News , NRATV , and Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV , have portrayed Soros as an evil puppet master , pulling the strings behind everything they hate : immigrants , Jews , Muslims , Black Lives Matter , the civil unrest in Ferguson , the Kavanaugh protesters , the NFL protesters , the Parkland , Florida protesters , and the Unite The Right rally.

Democrats creating a safe space for antisemitism? Not even close. Ilhan Omar makes a perfectly legitimate criticism of the Israeli lobby , and both Republicans and Democrats lose their s**t.  If they want to be taken seriously , the Republican party should sound a bull horn about the antisemitism in their own party.

Mark Levin Has Proven Himself To Be Exactly What He Accuses Ilhan Omar Of Being – A Shameless Bigot

It’s evident that what conservatives are bellyaching about liberals and Democrats supposedly being guilty of , they’re pretty much guilty of it themselves. It’s called psychological projection , accuse your opponents of what you are guilty of. Conservatives have cornered the market on it.

Case in point , Mark Levin , radio host and right wing screeching mag pie with a voice that can make anyone cringe. He’s the host of Life , Liberty , And Levin on the Fox News channel. Recently Levin’s CRTV merged with Glenn Beck’s failing The Blaze , to become Blaze Mediaor BlazeTV

Before it merged with The Blaze , CRTV – like most of conservative media – was not known for journalistic standards or integrity. It was mostly a right wing hack site for fake news , partisan quackery and massive amounts of hypocrisy and projection , with a smattering of racism and bigotry , another Fox News type entertainment channel , a media lap dog of the Trump White House.

Its featured commentators included Michelle Malkin – who resigned or was fired soon after the merger – Steven “Chowder Head” Crowder , and Gavin Mc Ginnis ( also gone after the merger ) who once featured conservative race denier , Jessie Lee Peterson , on his show , Get Off My Lawn!

Dubbed the Great One by Sean Hannity – which is ironic , since he’s without a doubt , one of the dumbest political hack commentators around – many of Levin’s supporters and fans actually believe him to be an intellectual. He’s known for his loud and abrasive manner when dealing with opposition to his ideas or opinions. On his radio show he has demonstrated an annoying habit of bullying callers who disagree with him , talking over them and often hanging up on them. For a supposed intellectual who earned a BA in political science , he seems unwilling to engage his opponents in political debate of ideas , and instead chooses to accuse them of being radical Marxists

Levin has a long history of playing the race card when attacking Americas first black president , even as he accused Obama of doing the same. He was also quick to throw the fascist card at Obama , something he recently accused Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats of labeling president Trump.

On his radio show last week , Levin claimed that the Democratic party has become a party of bigots because it failed to mention representative Ilan Omar in its resolution to condemn anti Semitism. This had Mark Levin absolutely livid. Ever since the Ilhan Omar controversy , conservatives have been making fools of themselves by claiming that the Democratic party is now the party of bigotry because she had the nerve to be critical of Israel’s lobbying influence – through AIPAC – on Washington.

Levin : “The Democratic party has among it a growing number of bigots ,” he said , with a complete lack of awareness that the Republican party has had for decades a problem with bigotry , not just racism , but anti Semitism , Islamophobia , homophobia , and transgender phobia.

The Democratic party has shown itself to be exactly what it is. They fear offending the radical extreme corner of its base.”

What they fear more than anything else , is offending Republicans , which is why they condemned her and proposed a resolution to condemn anti Semitism in the first place. Levin and other Islamophobic bigots in the Republican party are outraged that the resolution didn’t solely condemn Omar and her alleged anti -Semitism , but anti Muslim bigotry. They’re outraged that it included condemnation of anti Muslim bigotry. Is Levin outraged that twenty-three Republicans voted no to condemn bigotry? No , he’s not outraged at that , because he’s a bigot himself , who is fine with protecting and excusing the actual anti-Semitic and Islamophobic bigots in his own party. 

“They fear offending the growing pockets of fundamentalist Islam in this country , let’s be honest , who vote Democratic through and through.”

I had no idea extreme , radical Muslims who believe in Sharia , vote Democratic.

“The Democratic caucus was split , we read from news reports , on whether or not to vote for a watered down , dumbed down version in which the bigot of bigots , Omar , was not to be named. Tough Nancy Pelosi … she buckled. She’s a coward.”

More like she was encouraged to do the right thing. Levin , on the other hand , is a coward , because he’s obviously not man enough to admit he’s a hateful bigot.

Mark Levin accusing Democrats of anti-Semitism , is not only laughable , but it’s a common ruse by Republicans to accuse those – usually liberals – who call out their racism , of playing the race card. He’s currently employed at a so-called news organization whose commentators regularly dehumanize Muslims , migrants and other marginalized groups as sub human. This past Fall , during the mid term elections , Fox news commentators , including Levin on his radio show , joined in the hate fest of migrant caravans coming to invade America , claiming it was funded by , who else , but George Soros , the favorite bogey man of conservatives who are not , in any way , anti-Semitic. His hatred and racial attacks on America’s first black president have been well-documented by media watch groups like Media Matters , Right Wing Watch , and News Hounds. 

Like any typical right wing douche bag , Levin is a hypocrite when it comes to race. He is reluctant to call out and condemn the anti-Semitism and racism that runs amok among the Republican party and the conservative movement , but will pounce on Democrats he perceives to be anti Semitic , like Ilhan Omar , who clearly is not. Then , it’s off to the races , accusing anyone who disagrees with them , or dares criticize Israel , of anti-Semitism. 

Levin : “Her comments were hateful.”

Omar : “So , for me , I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country. I want to ask , why is it OK for me to talk about the influence of the NRA , of fossil fuel industries , and Big Pharma , but not talk about a powerful lobby that is influencing policy?”       
Ilhan Omar’s comments on Israel were anything but hateful. What is hateful , is the attempt to smear her as an anti Semite by Islamophobes in the media , like Mark Levin , and in congress. The death threats and the disgusting racist attacks , like the racist poster that was displayed in the West Virginia statehouse , comparing her to a 9/11 terrorist.

There is nothing controversial here. Those who have made it a scandal , have done so in an attempt to smear her as an anti-Semite , to silence her , to discredit her , because she happens to be a Muslim woman , and a Justice Democrat , who has the nerve to criticize the Israeli governments influence on our own government , who refuses to do what the establishment Democrats tell her to do , and refuses to let Republicans bully her. And until Republicans are willing to address the elephant in the room – their own racism , Islamophobia , anti-Semitism , and other forms of bigotry – they have no right to claim a moral high ground.

Meghan McCain Heckled By Pervert On The View

https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-view-goes-off-the-rails-on-racist-republicans-im-john-mccains-daughter

Drama Queen , Meghan McCain at The View.

Meghan McCain joined The View in September 2017. She was a former Fox News contributor , and a co host of Outnumbered. She was also an MSNBC contributor , and in 2009 was a brief contributor for the online news source , The Daily Beast.

Since joining The View , she has had several embarrassing disagreements bordering on meltdowns with her co hosts , such as the time she defended the president for pulling out of the Iran Deal , in which she also accused certain co hosts of supporting terrorism.

Other disagreements bordering on meltdowns , include , insisting that the GOP is not racist ; that law abiding gun owners are unfairly demonized after mass shootings ( during a discussion on the Tree Of Life shooting ) , and telling guest Tara Setmayer , ‘Please stop saying that , please stop saying that ‘, when she called Trump’s base a cult for believing everything he says.

She has a reputation as an airhead among both liberals and some conservatives. Wing nut conservatives , such as Laura Ingraham , with whom she’s had an on again off again feud , view her as a fake Republican because she’s not extreme enough for their liking , as she supports same sex marriage , and birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Her books include , Dirty Sexy Politics , America , You Sexy Bitch : A Love Letter To America ( co written with Ian Black ) , Rush Limbaugh Can Kiss My Big Fat Ass , Katie Pavlich : An Airhead Wrapped In A Bimbo , Laura Ingraham : Hitler Reincarnated , and soon to be published , Don’t Call Me An Airhead : Katie Pavlich Is The Real Airhead.

On a recent episode of The View , Meghan and co host Sunny Hostin got into a disagreement over Trump’s border wall , when things quickly took an odd turn. It started out as a peaceful enough discussion , but then quickly derailed off into Crazy Town.

They started off the show talking about Trump’s obsession with The Wall , and whether it was racist or not to support it. Sunny wanted to know why Republicans don’t have the guts to call out his racism over his obsession with border security.

“But , Sunny ,” Abby Huntsman said , “according to the polls , forty two percent of the country support the president’s wall. Does that make them all racist?”

“It depends on how you look at it ,” Sunny answered. “It’s not necessarily racist or bigoted to want adequate border security. We have it now , and we had it when Obama was president. This ridiculous notion that he was soft on border security , that he was allowing illegal immigrants to waltz across the southern border unchecked and unvetted , I think that’s kind of a racist attitude in itself. We have a security system that’s not perfect , but it works , and it takes time to properly process these people. But , what is racist , is when you have a network like Fox News , including the president of the United States , that constantly fear mongers and spreads lies about them , that they’re criminals and terrorists. That is racist.”

Meghan stood up. ‘Oh … my … God ,” she said. “I can’t believe it. Are you calling me a racist?”

“Relax , Meghan , nobody is calling you a -” Whoopie tried to say , but Meghan cut her off.

“Am I a racist because I support strong border security?”

“Meghan , calm down.”

“Is everyone who supports Trump’s border wall , racist? I don’t think so! I believe I can speak for Abby also , when I say that this makes me very uncomfortable.”

“Meghan , please shut up ,” Whoopie said.

“I will not shut up. I am not a racist! I am John McCain’s daughter!” She said , clenching her teeth and stomping a foot.

Whoopie , who had been sitting next to Meghan , stood up and placed a hand on her shoulder to calm her down. “Right now you’re acting like a God damn drama queen , so shut the f**k up.”

There was a smattering of nervous laughter from the audience.

“Please don’t touch me!”

“Oh … my … God , ‘ Joy muttered , shaking her head.

That was crazy enough , since Meghan has always had the reputation of being not just an egghead , but a bit of a drama queen. But what happened next , was even crazier. And it didn’t come from Meghan or any of the other hosts. It came from someone in the audience.

“I am not a drama queen ,” Meghan insisted.

We know ,” Whoopie said. “You’re John McCain’s daughter. Now , please -“

“Cat fight!” someone yelled from the audience. Again , there was nervous laughter. Stunned , everyone turned toward the audience.

“What the f**k?” Meghan said. Shielding her eyes from the studio lights , she looked out into the audience. “Who said that?”

After a moment of awkward silence , in which it was clear the perp was not about reveal himself , she said , “It was not a cat fight. It was just a simple misunderstanding.”

“Take it off!”

“Listen , creep! This is not a strip club. We’re having an important political discussion here. If you want to see a cat fight , or a lap dance , go visit the strip club on the corner.”

Whether it had been a discussion was debatable. It had really been more of a Meghan Meltdown , an all too common occurrence at The View.

“Take it off!” the creep yelled again , and there was more nervous laughter from the audience.

“Alright , that’s it , a**hole!” Meghan yelled back. “No one is taking their clothes off for your perverted pleasure , you creep , especially me!”

“Take it off!”

Frustrated , Meghan turn toward her co hosts and said , “Is anyone going to do anything about this pervert?” But none of them were able to answer her at the moment. They were all too busy laughing hysterically.

Meghan was crushed. These were friends of hers , who had never laughed at her before , no matter how ridiculous she was behaving.

She couldn’t take the humiliation. Not only were they laughing at her. The View had millions of viewers. Many of them were probably laughing at her as well.

She burst out crying and ran back stage.

After Meghan ran crying back stage , security confronted the audience and quickly flushed out the heckler. He was the perfect example of someone who was destined to live out his early adulthood without getting laid : thick , greasy hair , an over abundance of acne , and a set of discolored buck teeth that any respectable rodent would envy. They chased him around the studio , while someone thought it might be amusing to play Yakety Sax over the studio system PA , the Benny Hill theme song , where the entire cast is chasing him around while the credits roll. The audience participated in the fun , providing the laugh track to the wackiness of the situation. The kid managed to avoid the guards for at least twenty minutes , repeatedly taunting them to catch him , but at last he began to tire , and they were able to get their hands on him and haul him out of the studio , all the while encouraging Meghan McCain to do a strip tease.

After the episode aired , Whoopie told news sources that they had not been laughing at Meghan so much as they had been laughing at the absurdity of the situation.
