The DIE Squad represents the worst of America. They have turned their districts into crime infested squalor. Bowman should have been expelled for pulling a fire alarm before a vote. Omar openly boasts about helping Somalia, not the country she has been elected to represent. Tlaib voted present when all other reps condemned Hamas using rape as a weapon of war. AOC and Pressley’s sanctuary districts are collapsing under the weight of illegals, who will become their new voters.

No matter how much MSM pearl clutches about Moscow, they can’t ignore that the decay of our cities has been an intentional choice: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/throwback-thursday-cities-fupaz-boblee

The squads ideology is both a philosophical and strategic failure. It is based on Identity and its currency is measured by grievance. The squads cohesion is its grievance. When one faction of their coalition- Asians for example- gain success the coalition fractures and fails. The only unifying force is their grievance and victimhood.

That is why Trump is gaining votes among minorities and DEMS are losing to a corrupt insurrectionist.

"...an Associated Press survey last month found that 50 percent of Americans say Israel’s response has 'gone too far'"

Until Hamas has been wiped out, they have not gone far enough.

"Normal" varies with age groups. I am 77 and my personal concern is crime. After having my purse snatched in a "good" neighborhood, I worry about a simple trip to the grocery store. Mailing checks is a gamble. Stealing checks and acid washing them is a big operation in my city. You cannot jog or walk the dog without concern. The Defund the Police crowd is a bunch of privileged morons.

As important as the issue of rejecting Hamas is, I would like to see an in-depth article regarding the actual bills the “Squad” has brought before the House that have passed. For example, from my understanding, AOC has engaged in no real legislating. Besides blocking Amazon’s expansion into her district she seems to be an echo chamber of racial divisiveness and false illegal immigration narratives.

It's simple. The Left hates Jews, especially religious Jews. That so many American Jews vote for the Left is a tragedy, but another story. There was a time when the majority of the Democratic Party was squarely on the side of Israel. This is no longer the case. the Dems need to purge the party of these antisemites. Yes, anti Israeli sentiment is antisemitism.

“the notion that Ceasefire Now represents the will of the American people is pure fiction. We have to make sure we don’t play into that false narrative.” Truth! I am not a democrat and am barely hanging onto a republican identity. One thing is clear to me however: most Americans fully support Israel and understand what has happened in Gaza is fully the fault of Hamas. We can read exactly what Hamas has to say about this here in back issues of The Free Press. I wish all squad members were facing re-election in November. This is the season for all “normies” to use voting to speak our minds on this very very important issue. I believe we will be heard.

Unfortunately I think this article underestimates the depth of antisemitism as has been the case throughout history. Because this depth is hard to fathom, it is much more easily denied. The chronic persecution of the Jews would have not occurred without the tacit acquiesce of the silent majority. Of course this is seen most acutely among the Palestinian populace that supports Hamas but in the same vein by nearly the entire world including countries that have nothing to do with the Gaza war such as South Africa who are focused not on their national interest but on preventing the Jews from defending themselves . In fact, October 7 occurred because of the Palestinian $ support of the US and rest of the world. Are you saying that until October 7 it was not known this was a genocidal movement? The Squad were anti-Israel long before October 7 yet were elected and rose to national prominence inspite of this. How many times can a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn’t see? It took a Holocaust to see this, but only for a few decades. The article is making the case that it’s different this time. Let’s see.

Israel's response to the horrific events of October 7 and their aftermath (have we already forgotten the hostages still being subjected to unknown, unspeakable treatment at the hands of these savages?) is now being described variously as "over the top" and having "gone too far." These are squishy, touchy-feely, meaningless terms that have no place in discussions of the strategy and tactics of war. What exactly constitutes "over the top" and "too far" in response to the rape, murder, kidnapping, and torture of innocents?

Our open borders have virtually guaranteed that we will eventually see an October 7-style attack here on our own soil. Let's see what Americans will "feel" is "over the top" and "too far" then.

I suppose one day soon I will wake up and no longer be shocked by the antisemitism of the progressive left of the Democrats but that day isn't today. What happened to the party that championed itself compassionate? That stood up for victims of sexual assault?

"As long as we send weapons & a blank check, we’re more than complicit in the nearly 30,000 lives lost"

Anyone who can quote this Hamas- reported casualty number while conveniently omitting the fact that it includes 13,000 known terrorists plus an unknown number killed by their own thousands of misfired rockets, is utterly morally bankrupt and has a serious problem with latent (or overt) Jew-hatred.

Is it time to speak the truth about Islam?

.

Many Muslims are Islamists, who are savage and brutal. Islamists' key impulse is hatred.

.

Islamists not only hate Jews, Christians, ... but the men have contempt for all women.

.

And non-savage Muslims will never condemn the savage Islamists - whatever they do.

(Non-savage Muslims risk being killed for apostasy, if they criticize savage Islamists.)

.

That leaves Islam as being a religion largely comprised of savages and weaklings.

The Squad members have always been racist and anti-American. I guess as long as you just blame whites for everything that's OK. But you can't bully the Jews.

The fact the "squad" made it this far in the American political landscape is a travesty and a testament of our times. None of them have personally accomplished anything before being voted in. None of their houses were in order before they sought to change the world. When you don't know anything, you get drawn in by utopian ideologies. Marxism's warm, fuzzy, seductive glow remains powerful even after all these years and failed experiments, hundreds of millions of corpses notwithstanding.

Big deal. If you're a Jew and you vote for any democrat you're insane. Aside from your insanity you're also a traitor to your people and to Israel.

How anyone can vote for the extreme views of these people is beyond me. The seem to live in a different world.
