As I wrote several days ago, the Democrat Party is in the middle of a civil war even as Joe Biden tries to project a faux sense of unity. That manifested recently with pointed attacks on Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, pledged to not only not blow up the filibuster, but also to not vote for the “For the People Act” at all (that’s the Democrat’s attempt to federalize things like ballot harvesting and universal, ID-less mail-in voting).

Now, the infighting is really breaking out into the open. Noted anti-Semite Rep. Ilhan Omar recently compared the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban via yet another ridiculous rant about “victims” and supposed “justice.” Omar, when she’s not just being outright antisemitic, often makes false comparisons in order to back door her bigotry into the discourse.

This is obviously correct. There is no moral comparison between the mistakes of the United States and Israel (there is no perfect nation) and Hamas or the Taliban. To make that comparison is just a weak attempt to mainstream yet more antisemitism from Omar. Also, note that she failed to mention the Palestinian Authority or her own dumpster fire of a home country in Somalia in her original remarks. The ommissions are purposeful because to hold the Palestinians and their major government
