    Reminder: the President of the United States took the side of actual Nazis after the Charlottesville protest.

    The same ideology that complains about Democrats exploiting identity politics also shamelessly shout antisemitism whenever Israel is put into any sort of scrutiny.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Is there a disconnect here?

    I understand the media from the Right making a big deal out of this. I do not understand why main stream media or the left leaning media is jumping on the band wagon.

    If you take any of her tweets and replace Israel with some other Country, there is nothing to talk about except
    a) Good point - should we change our policy toward 'x' country?
    or
    b) Is she crazy? why would we even discuss this? The current policy is the correct one.

    Those that took into consideration that Israel is made up of majority Jewish population, are being discriminatory.

    The one thing we have learned is that many anti-Semites are pro Israel. Most christian white supremacists fit here .
    Another fact is that many Americans, who support the Jewish cause are against the current Government in Israel.


    Some Americans are really weird. They think that in order to resolve the Israeli/Palestinian dispute You have to recognize that:
    a) Both sides have good points to support their respective opinions.
    b) Both sides have done terrible things.


    The worst thing we can do is to shut down debate, by shouting 'antisemitism' at anyone who brings the topic up.
    Even if that person bringing it up, happens to be Muslim.
    Maybe it has to do with the fact that she supports CAIR, a terror-supporting organization who hate Jews.

    Only attuned to certain frequencies, I guess.

    “Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.”

    Everyone in this thread knows this applies to you, so why don't you bug off, deplorable.

    No, because there is nothing there. She's criticizing Israel and AIPAC. Netanyahu came to our Congress to influence us. Am I anti-Semitic if I didn't appreciate that? If I criticize Israel shooting unarmed people at border with snipers, does that make me anti-Semitic?

    Are we really going to pretend that Israel has no lobbyists?

    My frequency is rationality. I'll point out irrationality on either side.

    I'm not the least bit surprised that the homeboi who was a birther also believes the CAIR support terrorism. I bet you believe there's a sex dungeon in the fictional basement of a pizza parlor.

    Islamaphobia is accepted.

    It's crazy that the same guy who proposed a Musim ban is criticizing someone for being anti-Semitic.
