Through the Wormhole with the DNC

 

Prime Minister’s Questions this past week foreshadowed the American government’s future. Such a future had been seen as years, or decades, away, but events of this past week suggest the United States has entered a wormhole, as in a science fiction story. Indeed, it seems that one party has created an artificial wormhole, or hyperspace jump gate. Are we now being hurled towards convergence with British politics and society, with truth becoming stranger than fiction?

Prime Minister’s Questions, on 6 March 2019, featured questions about what Labour MPs called “knife crime.” While the Conservative PM lightly pushed back with talk of “drug gangs” as the problem, she effectively conceded the left’s position by citing an “offensive weapons” bill as a part of the government’s response. The accepted range of debate in Britain is now over how helpless the subjects of the realm should be rendered, firearms having long been restricted to near non-existence for ordinary people.

First off on its head this argument is nonsense. Taking the Democratic parties Intersectionality first approach should mean that there can not be “not bad” Antisemitism.  More

@susanquinn recently featured a little story with a big heart, about a Methodist school teacher in Florida who took her grade school students on a walk, to commemorate the history of the Jews who wandered for 40 years in the desert, before they reached the promised land. https://ricochet.com/592875/israelite-walk-in-bartow-florida/#comment-4406495 It isn’t news that antisemitism is alive […]

Trump: “We Will Seek [the] Destruction [of Those Who Would Destroy the Jews]”

 

President Trump did, indeed, double down on hating back the Jew-hating mass-murderer. I’ve gone on C-SPAN and created the relevant clip from the Illinois MAGA Event: President Trump Calls for “Destruction” of Anti-Semites, Death Penalty for “crimes like these.”

The killer was depraved on account of he’s depraved, to borrow from West Side Story.He is, on available evidence, no John Hinkley, acting on the delusion that a spectacular act of violence would endear him to a movie star. He was not bowling alone, he was marinating in an ancient hate, channeling and reinforcing his evil through an online forum, instead of ranting in a bar, or passing out pamphlets.

Democratic presidents and anti-Semites

 

Some on the Left are attempting to blame Trump and Republicans for the killings last Saturday in Pittsburgh. But the last two Democratic presidents have appeared with notorious anti-Semites:

1. Obama and Rev. Wright: he claimed in 2009 that “Them Jews ain’t going to let him (Obama) talk to me.” Wright then said that he meant to use Zionists not Jews. This is a distinction without a difference. One might argue that this is after Obama broke with Wright in 2008. He claimed that he’d never heard Wright make the incendiary comments which came to light in 2008. But in 2004 he stated to a local Chicago reporter that he was in Wright’s church every Sunday. His claim of ignorance about Wright’s opinions strains credulity.

Jew-Hating Mass Murderer also Hates Trump, Who Hates Him Back with Interest

 

United States President Donald Trump thanks Rabbi Benjamin Sendrow after he invited Sendrow and a local pastor to say prayers in light of the morning's synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, during his speech at the annual Future Farmers of America Convention and Expo at Banker's Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018.The President has all the more reason, today, to double down and proclaim America a land of “Ballots not Bullets / Ballots not Bioweapons / Ballots not Bombs.”

The monster who murdered Jews in their place of worship, at a baby-naming ceremony, shares in the deep hatred of President Trump. The murderer hates this President because Trump celebrates keeping his word, moving our embassy to Jerusalem, and preaches at every event:

For Whom Would You Wear a Star?

 

Having read this disturbing Gatestone Institute article about the increasingly dangerous situation for Jews in France, I would suggest that there is an opportunity here for European gentiles to put their money where their multicultural mouths are.

There is a story from the Second World War in which the German occupiers’ ordered Jews in Denmark to wear a yellow star. This was immediately followed by a royal order from King Christian that all Danish citizens should wear yellow stars. The story is apocryphal, but the solidarity and courage of the Danish gentiles with their Jewish countrymen were real and should be seen as exemplary.

Tonight’s national news segment once again, showed another bomb threat called into Jewish Centers across the United States. This has been, alarmingly, almost a nightly event.More evacuations, fear, questions with no answers, as of yet. I thought I heard this was the act of one deranged person who was apprehended, yet it continues? Christians are […]

A lot of ink has been spilled (digital and otherwise) about the unconscionable abstention of the Obama Administration in the UN Security Council’s condemnation of Israel this past week. What I am not seeing very much of is mention of the perfidy of some of Israel’s other erstwhile “allies” specifically the United Kingdom and New […]

Obama Kicks Israel on His Way Out the Door

 

Aleppo is crumbling, Libya is in ruins, Russia is threatening its neighbors, and China is militarizing the South China Sea. But the UN is taking action against Israel. And Obama let them:

The U.N. Security Council on Friday passed a resolution demanding Israel cease Jewish settlement activity on Palestinian territory in a unanimous vote that passed when the United States abstained rather than using its veto as it has reliably done in the past.

I’m Jewish, with all the baggage that entails (truncated family tree, etc.). But according to Cathy Young’s poorly reasoned and badly written hodgepodge, “Ann Coulter’s Anti-Semitism Runs Deeper Than You Know,” I, too, would qualify as anti-Semitic for questioning liberal Jews (that includes practically ALL so-called conservatives): They insist that while Palestinians have no right […]

I watched ‘soon to be retired’ Jon Stewart seldomly and most of his shows I have only seen online. He is funny, sarcastic and certainly made those he skewered (Conservatives) look idiotic. As a Conservative, I only felt little animus toward him, as I acknowledge his talent and simply voted with my remote. More

Czech President Delivers Bold Speech in Support of Israel

 

milos-zeman-praesident-wahl-tschechien-vaclav-klaus-karel-schwarzenbergThe Czech Republic breeds an uncommon moral vision in its politicians. Perhaps being an early victim of Nazi occupation followed by decades of Soviet domination created fertile soil for the likes of Václav Havel and now Miloš Zeman.

President Zeman recently gave a speech celebrating Israel’s Independence Day, a bold move considering the growing antisemitism in modern Europe. Speaking just two days after the jihad-inspired murders at the Brussels Jewish Museum, Zeman clearly identified Israel’s precarious position:
