Illan Omar (D-MN) Channels Tip O'Neill's counting skills

Prime Min­is­ter Jim Hacker: A British National is fac­ing a bar­baric pun­ish­ment for a triv­ial offense com­mit­ted in a for­eign coun­try, the for­eign office is there to pro­tect British Nationals

Sir Humphrey Appleby: The For­eign Office is there to pro­tect British Inter­ests
Prime Min­is­ter Jim Hacker: It’s not in her inter­est to be flogged.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: It’s not in our inter­est to pre­vent it.

Prime Min­is­ter Jim Hacker: Yet it is this could hurt the gov­ern­ment very badly.

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well I under­stand that tomor­row the for­eign sec­re­tary will deliver a strongly worded note of protest to the Kumranes

Prime Min­is­ter Jim Hacker: Why can’t you do it now?

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well we haven’t got their agree­ment on it yet! They’re see­ing the ambas­sador pri­vately now, once they’ve approved the the word­ing we’ll hand it over, then we’ll have done all we can.

Yes Prime Min­is­ter “The Bishop’s Gam­bit” 1986 (empha­sis mine)

One of the things about the story of the quest for the per­fect anti­semitism res­o­lu­tion that Democ­rats can sup­port has been how con­trary the Demo­c­rat reac­tion has been to what would nor­mally be con­ven­tional polit­i­cal wisdom.

Nor­mally in a case like this you would have hur­ried through a fairly sim­ply res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing anti­semitism in all its forms, the entire cau­cus votes for it and brags about it and viola you have a one day bot­tom of the fold story that the MSM could ignore.

Instead this story stretched into a third day and the final res­o­lu­tion was so broad that it made the actual objec­tions to Rep Omar’s anti­se­mitic remarks mean­ing­less. Even worse (or bet­ter if you are the GOP) you actu­ally had the spec­ta­cle of the Demo­c­rat can­di­date for Gov­er­nor in Florida defend­ing Omar’s state­ments that started the cri­sis on national TV


but you had the #3 Demo­c­rat in the house declar­ing that the chil­dren of Holo­caust sur­vivors need to check their privilege.


And thus you ended up with a res­o­lu­tion so weak that Omar not only voted for it but the allies cel­e­brated at the end of the vote. One might ask how is was pos­si­ble that the Democ­rats were in this predica­ment? Why didn’t they just apol­o­gize and let the story go away?

The answer is because Rep Omar for all her faults and inex­pe­ri­ence has learned Tip O’Neill’s 1st rule of pol­i­tics: She knows how to count.

She may or may not know the his­tory of the Demo­c­rat party, how it mor­phed from the pro-​slavery party to the debtors party, to the work­ing mans party to the eth­nic party, to the pro-​abortion sec­u­lar coali­tion party that is is now, but there is one thing that she does know:

The Democ­rats have reached a point where they can’t afford to lose any bits of their coali­tion and aspire to hold national power.

For years the Democ­rats turned a blind eye to black pols who played the “jews=slavery” canard to win votes because the black vote was so vital, they turned a blind eye when activists pro­fes­sors in col­leges push the con­cept of Israel as the source of all the worlds woes because those activists, well funded by pro­grams pushed by Democ­rats, were turn­ing out vot­ers and mus­cle, they turned a blind eye to gang vio­lence in places like Chicago that iron­i­cally tar­gets Demo­c­rat vot­ers because they knew those same gangs would turn out the vote when asked, they turned a blind eye to ille­gal immi­gra­tion on the the­ory that all peo­ple who speak span­ish comes from the myth­i­cal land of “His­pan­ica” and or a sin­gle mind on ille­gal immi­gra­tion, and finally they turned a blind eye to anti­se­mitic vio­lence by Mus­lim immi­grants because those com­mu­ni­ties not only became the source of Demo­c­rat votes but because they did not sub­scribe to the “kill our kids” the­ory that well off lib­er­als did, had to poten­tial to pro­vide a new source of Demo­c­rat votes for gen­er­a­tion to come.

Omar can count and she knows that if her and her allies stay home in 2020 not only is Don­ald Trump re-​elected for sure but the Demo­c­rat hold on the house and the com­mit­tee chairs that are the source of the deep state power and patron­age that the Demo­c­rat party is all about.

In once sense this you can’t blame Omar, not only has Islam’s play­book always been to assert power once it is strong enough to do so, fur­ther­more since she actu­ally believes in this stuff one would expect that she would fight to defend and advance what she believes. That what she believes in objec­tively false and actu­ally evil doesn’t enter into it. Under our sys­tem she has the right to push her point of view and if a major­ity of Democ­rats choose to go along with it, well that’s the way it works.

After all if the Demo­c­rat party has no prob­lem redefin­ing what “Mar­riage” and “man” and “woman” means why should any­one be sur­prised when they rede­fine “antisemitism”.

Thus we have the result that they got and Omar and com­pany had a good laugh about it and we have the fol­low­ing spectacle


Now that Omar’s count has been con­firmed it won’t be long before she tests the waters to find out how much father she can go, (in fact some say she already has) and at what point will will Jew­ish Democ­rats wake to the beast that they’ve been enabling for years:

In case I haven’t reminded you lately, some of my cousins are Jew­ish Democ­rats. They despise Don­ald Trump, but I won­der: How long will they be able to main­tain their anti-​Trump stance if Pelosi fails to sup­press the Jew-​haters in her coali­tion? You can go back as far as the 1960s and see how this poi­so­nous weed has grown on the Left.
Anti-​Israel pol­i­tics func­tioned as a proxy for anti-​Semitism among “Black Power” rad­i­cals, and anti-​Semitism was a proxy for anti-​white racism. In 1996, I inter­viewed a for­mer activist for
SNCC who bemoaned how “Stokely Carmichael and that crowd ran the white peo­ple out of the move­ment” circa 1966. That ten­dency flour­ished again in the wake of the 911 attacks and, while it seemed to fade dur­ing the Obama years, it con­tin­ued grow­ing with the BDS move­ment on col­lege cam­puses. Now, with Trump in the White House and Democ­rats con­trol­ling the House, Pelosi finds her­self yoked to this rad­i­cal­ism and it will be dif­fi­cult, if not impos­si­ble, for her to dis­en­tan­gle her­self from the anti-​Israel/​anti-​white sen­ti­ment that flour­ishes among “the younger, far-​left wing of the party.”

I sus­pect that Jew­ish Democ­rats have so replaced Judaism with lib­er­al­ism as their pri­mary reli­gion that even if they real­ize what is hap­pen­ing they’ll find a way to jus­tify it.

Prime Minister Jim Hacker: A British National is facing a barbaric punishment for a trivial offense committed in a foreign country, the foreign office is there to protect British Nationals

Sir Humphrey Appleby: The Foreign Office is there to protect British Interests
Prime Minister Jim Hacker: It’s not in her interest to be flogged.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: It’s not in our interest to prevent it.

Prime Minister Jim Hacker: Yet it is this could hurt the government very badly.

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well I understand that tomorrow the foreign secretary will deliver a strongly worded note of protest to the Kumranes

Prime Minister Jim Hacker: Why can’t you do it now?

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well we haven’t got their agreement on it yet! They’re seeing the ambassador privately now, once they’ve approved the the wording we’ll hand it over, then we’ll have done all we can.

One of the things about the story of the quest for the perfect antisemitism resolution that Democrats can support has been how contrary the Democrat reaction has been to what would normally be conventional political wisdom.

Normally in a case like this you would have hurried through a fairly simply resolution condemning antisemitism in all its forms, the entire caucus votes for it and brags about it and viola you have a one day bottom of the fold story that the MSM could ignore.

Instead this story stretched into a third day and the final resolution was so broad that it made the actual objections to Rep Omar’s antisemitic remarks meaningless. Even worse (or better if you are the GOP) you actually had the spectacle of the Democrat candidate for Governor in Florida defending Omar’s statements that started the crisis on national TV

but you had the #3 Democrat in the house declaring that the children of Holocaust survivors need to check their privilege.

And thus you ended up with a resolution so weak that Omar not only voted for it but the allies celebrated at the end of the vote. One might ask how is was possible that the Democrats were in this predicament? Why didn’t they just apologize and let the story go away?

The answer is because Rep Omar for all her faults and inexperience has learned Tip O’Neill’s 1st rule of politics: She knows how to count.

She may or may not know the history of the Democrat party, how it morphed from the pro-slavery party to the debtors party, to the working mans party to the ethnic party, to the pro-abortion secular coalition party that is is now, but there is one thing that she does know:

The Democrats have reached a point where they can’t afford to lose any bits of their coalition and aspire to hold national power.

For years the Democrats turned a blind eye to black pols who played the “jews=slavery” canard to win votes because the black vote was so vital, they turned a blind eye when activists professors in colleges push the concept of Israel as the source of all the worlds woes because those activists, well funded by programs pushed by Democrats, were turning out voters and muscle, they turned a blind eye to gang violence in places like Chicago that ironically targets Democrat voters because they knew those same gangs would turn out the vote when asked, they turned a blind eye to illegal immigration on the theory that all people who speak spanish comes from the mythical land of “Hispanica” and or a single mind on illegal immigration, and finally they turned a blind eye to antisemitic violence by Muslim immigrants because those communities not only became the source of Democrat votes but because they did not subscribe to the “kill our kids” theory that well off liberals did, had to potential to provide a new source of Democrat votes for generation to come.

Omar can count and she knows that if her and her allies stay home in 2020 not only is Donald Trump re-elected for sure but the Democrat hold on the house and the committee chairs that are the source of the deep state power and patronage that the Democrat party is all about.

In once sense this you can’t blame Omar, not only has Islam’s playbook always been to assert power once it is strong enough to do so, furthermore since she actually believes in this stuff one would expect that she would fight to defend and advance what she believes. That what she believes in objectively false and actually evil doesn’t enter into it. Under our system she has the right to push her point of view and if a majority of Democrats choose to go along with it, well that’s the way it works.

After all if the Democrat party has no problem redefining what “Marriage” and “man” and “woman” means why should anyone be surprised when they redefine “antisemitism”.

Thus we have the result that they got and Omar and company had a good laugh about it and we have the following spectacle

Now that Omar’s count has been confirmed it won’t be long before she tests the waters to find out how much father she can go, (in fact some say she already has) and at what point will will Jewish Democrats wake to the beast that they’ve been enabling for years:


In case I haven’t reminded you lately, some of my cousins are Jewish Democrats. They despise Donald Trump, but I wonder: How long will they be able to maintain their anti-Trump stance if Pelosi fails to suppress the Jew-haters in her coalition? You can go back as far as the 1960s and see how this poisonous weed has grown on the Left.
Anti-Israel politics functioned as a proxy for anti-Semitism among “Black Power” radicals, and anti-Semitism was a proxy for anti-white racism. In 1996, I interviewed a former activist for 
SNCC who bemoaned how “Stokely Carmichael and that crowd ran the white people out of the movement” circa 1966. That tendency flourished again in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and, while it seemed to fade during the Obama years, it continued growing with the BDS movement on college campuses. Now, with Trump in the White House and Democrats controlling the House, Pelosi finds herself yoked to this radicalism and it will be difficult, if not impossible, for her to disentangle herself from the anti-Israel/anti-white sentiment that flourishes among “the younger, far-left wing of the party.”

I suspect that Jewish Democrats have so replaced Judaism with liberalism as their primary religion that even if they realize what is happening they’ll find a way to justify it.
