The progressive side of the Democrat Party is mostly represented by three women referred to as The Squad, who are continuously in the news yet seem more socialist than progressive.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) have dominated the chatter and brought more negative attention to the Democrat party over the last few years.
All three of these representatives find Wall Street, big real estate, and our military corrupt. They’re also for defunding the police. But there’s something else that they have in common…their disdain for Israel.
Ilhan Omar has a track record of anti-Semitism. She does not recognize Israel as the only democracy in the Middle East, and as far back as 2012, she stated “Israel has hypnotized the world.”
Omar suggested American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a bipartisan pro-Israel lobbying organization, was buying politicians and it was “all about the Benjamins.” She is blatantly pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel. Ilhan Omar also headlines fundraisers for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Like Ilhan Omar, Human Rights Activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali grew up Muslim in Somalia and was taught to hate Jews and Israel. Ali stated in a Wall Street Journal article “I eventually unlearned my hatred of Jews, Zionists and Israel.” Now, she calls out Omar for her hate and warns against radical Islamist ideology taking root in America.
Unfortunately in August, Ilhan omar won her primary, informally securing a hold on Minnesota’s historically Democratic-run 5th Congressional District.
Rashida Tlaib uses harsh language to incite and rally her base in Michigan and beyond. She is Palestinian and along with Omar, is a very vocal supporter of the BDS (Boycott Divest Sanction) movement against Israel.
Both are supported by Miftah, a pro Palestinian nonprofit that supports suicide bombers and publishes blood libel against Jews. She attends numerous speaking engagements that are anti-Israel and has aligned herself with many anti-Israel
causes and individuals such as Linda Sarsour. She also defeated her opponent in the August primary.
Democrat rising start Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a very articulate, energetic, charming, and engaging. Her dangerous socialist platform has gained a lot of support among the younger set and Latinos.
In July 2019, she stated Israel is “criminal” in the way they treat Palestinians and that the Palestinians should riot. She was promoted at the Democratic National Convention in August and snubbed Joe Biden by nominating Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders. In June, AOC won her Democrat primary in New York’s 14th Congressional District.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi cannot handle the Squad and to date has been afraid to challenge them. All three have embraced Socialist Bernie Sanders, an anti-Israel self hating Jew who has now hopefully become irrelevant.
As a proud Jewish American, the damage these people have done and will continue to do to our democracy is anti-American and unpatriotic. We must vote them out!
