It's still going on now. The same old courtship that has become the mid-life crisis of the West.
The Jewish community does not need leaders who will accuse it of racism to score points at their Manhattan cocktail parties for the Public Art Fund, but real leaders who will stand up for it.
Getting involved in the politics of any other country is bound to make enemies.
Israel hasn’t turned its back on Zionism. The Jewish enablers of the PLO, of the terrorist killers, have. In an Orwellian twist, they have redefined Zionism to mean the destruction of Israel. Israel’s government, which fights for the Jewish State’s survival, is therefore anti-Zionist, while the lefties who want to destroy Israel are the true Zionists. Up is down. Left is right. And a generation of terror is peace.
Trump excels at capturing that bar/barbershop angry reaction and it may even be completely authentic
Makes for better tree climbing
Republicans who try to adapt to liberal values are pursuing a dead end.
There are two types of defeatism percolating through the GOP and the ranks of conservatives. One is the familiar form of establishment defeatism. The election is over. Let's concede, and move on.
Like a band that only knows one song, politicians only know one response to Islamic terrorism. They wall off that vast majority of Muslims...
Clinton Made Israel Take It Back
The United States can survive without the international order, but it cannot survive the international order. If the United States is going to survive the century, it will have to do so as a rogue nation.
When all the bubbles of rhetoric pop, there are still the hard unpleasant realities to deal with.
What made Briana Sykes open fire on a police officer? The answer is right in front of us.
Jabotinsky once warned that it came down to ending the exile or the exile will end you. The ashes prove the truth of his words. Now Israel has another choice, either it will end the peace process or the process will end it.
The Biden administration and its point man developing a plan to legitimize Hamas, gaining the support of the Europeans and the Russians, and then imposing it on Israel.
The same lefty elite that elevated Obama is unable to understand how to talk to someone who rejects any of its premises, for example, that America isn’t racist, that socialism isn’t the answer, or that its entire worldview is destructive and wrong. So it wants to censor it instead.
“Did you know youth voters canceled out every voter over 65+ for 2022?” Rock the Vote recently bragged. The voters they wanted to cancel out were Republicans and moderate Democrats.
No one who boycotts Israel wants a specific demand met, what they want is an excuse for unleashing that overpowering hatred that Wagner tried to rationalize by claiming that Jews were incapable of creating true music and that the left rationalizes by claiming that the Jewish State is starving babies. The elaborate explanations are not the content, they are the context, they make the hatred, which is the end, seem like it is only the means to a noble end.
The question is not when will the Jews wake up, but will there be any left to wake up.
Over in Toronto, a Muslim cleric with the unwieldy name of Al-Hashim Kamena Atangana had a great idea. Al-Hashim's idea was for Toronto to pass laws forcing women to wear Burkas. "Cover up or get raped", was the implied message. Toronto only has an estimated 5.5 percent Muslim population so the Toronto Taliban probably won't be getting their way until they have higher double digit numbers, but they can wait.
A white supremacist planting a bomb is firmly condemned, but a black man throwing molotov cocktails at a synagogue is carefully not discussed
And now, on to another election...
The media has been screaming that Trump was a traitor, when it was their man, Obama, who sold out to Putin, while President Trump held the line on missile defense without caring about what Moscow thought.
Is it the end of the Gates Foundation and its tyranny?
Once the media mainstreamed anti-Semitic radicals, it defended them against charges of anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism may not be growing, but tolerance for it is. And that can be just as dangerous.
Time to wash my hands
This isn’t about doctrinal battles or gay marriage. It’s about the culture war fallout from the left’s power to write its values into law and into the codes of conduct that hold sway in in private organizations.
President Trump has called for ruthless action against the Muslim AND Neo-Nazi murderers of Jews. If the media wants to sincerely oppose anti-Semitism, it could take a lesson from him.
In 2008, Obama ran to the left of Clinton on national security. There are signs that this time around Hillary Clinton will try to run to the left of Obama.
If Republicans want to start winning culture wars, instead of culture battles, they need to think like the Left and reinvent systems instead of competing on systemic competence.
