    Mehdi with a great thread, as always.

    thanks for a little more info and yup this is what it seems like to me. I am not overly surprised by it all but hope people can see the issues with Pelosi types when this stuff arises. Hillary Clinton loved this type of game too.

    The hypocrisy might be more on on side than the other I am not getting into that but there is no doubt the establishment dems absolutely love these little games. This seems to have nothing to do with an antisemitic comment but lets pretend it is because this culture war/identity politics is very important to us.

    I was wondering if it had something to do with "Benjamin" being a jewish name that is somehow an insult

    For what it's worth, I go with Monty Python's "Red Sea Pedestrians"

    It did not.

    I'm not surprised at all that so many people (I see your wink, though) are trying to find ways to convince themselves this is anything more than what it is, however.

    Also not surprised at how quickly and forcefully EVERYONE moved in on this. Some things are off-limits and criticizing the government is Israel is one of those. Makes it all the more important for people like her to exist.



    Now we have idiots like Bret Stevens demanding Omar step down from her committee positions. Thanks Nancy! I know you're basking in that good press re: the shutdown, but that doesn't mean you need to keep leaning so hard into your natural instincts and punching left every chance you get this past week. Thanks for making all the right-wingers proud! Watch them smear one of your colleagues and basically encourage them on. I hate Nancy so much sometimes my god

    I expect it from Chuck. He's an outright conservative when it comes to any matter concerning Israel.

    OK, for real I'm leaving now...


    I don't like Matty too much, though he seems to be getting better as the years go on, but the greater point to the issue Omar is trying to raise was basically proven in full force today.

    The Dems ALWAYS get the free pass!

    A joke!

    Pelosi has done nothing!

    They sweep this crap under the rug...

    If a GOP member said things they would have been run out of town...

    Yes, because as we all know Steve King was promptly booted from the GOP after he questioned why white supremacy was considered offensive, and now spends his days scrubbing toilets with toothbrushes in Mozambique.

    Oh wait, no, that didn't happen, he still represents Iowa's 4th district as a Republican.

    You know, I'm becoming more and more convinced you're just a parody poster trying to make Trump supports look really stupid. Like they need any help with that.

    But seriously if a GOP member was clowning the Muslims he or she would have been asked to leave....

    Omar can have her own opinion but she needs to understand she is out in the spotlight now....

    There are some things left better unsaid....

    Uh, I didnít vote for Trump.....

    Unfortunately I wasted my vote on Hillary....

    I did like Slick Willy as President....I figured he be still running the show if she were elected....The this why I wanted her to win...

    Trump is too nerve wracking.....I like stability and Bill did bring that.....Hillary should really be our President, but she forgot about Michigan and Minnesota and the rust belt States....

    Iím more center and bend on both sides....

    And I am NOT voting for Trump in 2020...Iíll vote for Liz Warren before I vote for him....
