    White House hears opportunity knocking with Jewish voters

    I said there was a chance this would happen, it just may


    After displays of alleged anti-Semitism by Democrats and deep divisions within the party over what to do about it, White House officials and their close political allies believe President Trump has a unique opportunity to win support from Jewish voters in the 2020 election, despite the group’s longstanding loyalty to the Democratic Party.

    “It’s becoming increasingly uncomfortable and untenable for legion Democratic voters to swallow hard enough to accept brazen, blatant, unreprimanded and unrepentant comments coming from a 37-year-old member of Congress,” senior White House aide Kellyanne Conway told the Washington Examiner.


    Conway was referring to Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who recently made multiple comments that evoked old anti-Semitic tropes, such as suggestions that American Jews have “dual loyalty” to Israel and that U.S. politicians only support Israel because of donations from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC.



    In response to widespread outrage over Omar’s comments, the Democratic-controlled House decided to pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism. But when progressive Democratic caucus members complained that such a measure was not inclusive, House leaders caved and passed a resolution on March 7 that condemned numerous forms of bigotry. The resolution was criticized as “watered-down” for its failure to single out anti-Semitism, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew further criticism for defending Omar.


    Trump is already trying to work the issue with Jewish voters, saying last week, “The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party and anti-Jewish party.”


    Democrats’ perceived leniency toward anti-Semitism will take a toll on Jewish voters’ longstanding allegiance to the Democratic Party, according to Curtis Ellis, a senior adviser at the pro-Trump nonprofit organization America First Policies.


    “By not condemning Ilhan Omar in clear, unequivocal terms, Nancy Pelosi and her crowd are doing President Trump’s work for him in expelling Jews from the ‘Egypt’ of the Democratic Party and bringing them to the ‘promised land’ of President Trump,” Ellis said. “Ilhan Omar is one of the plagues.”


    Alex Titus of the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action said Trump “has a unique opportunity to peel off a significant portion of Jewish voters in 2020 who have traditionally voted Democrat.”

    Yes, I'm sure that will work, just like when the right tries to to change history by saying blacks are on a Democratic plantation. Historically oppressed people have a way of remembering the ideology that oppresses them....
    “Conscientiously believing that the proper condition of the negro is slavery, or a complete subjection to the white man, and entertaining the belief that the day is not distant when the old Union will be restored with slavery nationally declared to be the proper condition of all of African descent, and in view of the future harmony and progress of all the States of America, I have been induced to issue this address, so that there may be no misunderstanding in the future”

    ...apparently not. If your statement was true there would be no black democrat voters.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    In my opinion the Democrats have made a hard assessment. The Muslims and IslamoNazis breed like rabbits, largely at our expense. There are about five million Jews living in the US. Already we have 3.5 million Muslims in the US. In a decade the Muslims and IslamoNazis will easily surpass the number of Jews. And their numbers will continue to rise.

    Democrats are comfortable with people known for murdering their opponents. I am sure it was an easy choice to make.

    Was there something specific you object to? Have I misstated the facts bearing on this issue?
