Excusing Hatred

Updated on March 17, 2019

Antoine Prepares Breakfast

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, March 18, 1019. Our French friend, Antoine, is in the kitchen preparing luscious Chocolate Croissants for our enjoyment. I am beside Antoine mixing up delicious French lattes to complete the meal. Antoine has some thoughts about the presence of Rep. Ilhan Omar in Congress. He would like to discuss a few things with all of us, and has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning at the table. Please join us as soon as you can.


Puppet on a String

Thanks so much for coming to the breakfast table this morning. I should open this discussion with a statement about the horrific mass shootings in New Zealand at two mosques. Those who committed this crime will pay the ultimate price for their actions. This awful act does not occur in a vacuum. It is borne of hatred that is fermented by events that not only preceded it, but are ongoing.

We have people in this country who are spreading hatred right in front of our eyes, One of them, and there are more, is sitting in Congress feeling secure in the knowledge that she will be able to carry on her campaign against Israel and the Jewish community. Her name is Ilhan Omar, and she does not fear the wrath of others in Congress because she believes, and perhaps rightly so, that others are afraid to censure her lest they be labelled Islamophobic. That is a shame. Actually, it is a crime, because giving her a pass for her hateful rhetoric will ferment the seeds of further bigotry.


Weakness in the Face of Hatred

If the Democrats wanted to try and redeem themselves in some way, they failed miserably. Ilan Omar gave voice to disgusting anti-semitic statements that should have been condemned by all the members of her party. Instead, Nancy Pelosi turned away from doing the right thing and drew up a resolution condemning hate of all kinds. The issue is and was anti-semitism. The guilty party was and is Rep, Omar. Because of their cowardice, Omar will continue to lash out at Israel, supporters of Israel and the Jewish people. Because of the Dems cowardice, Omar will feel free to continue to slam all those she despises with impunity. She knows that the Dems are weak and afraid. In fact, she is counting on it.

Judge Jeanine Piro was condemned by none other than Fox News for suggesting that Omar's Islamic religious beliefs are in conflict with our Constitution.


CAIR Defends Omar

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) flipped out when they heard Judge Piro's remarks. They called on FOX News to fire Judge Piro. CAIR's threat resonated with the network. Judge Piro is no longer on the air. This move is a massive defeat for all Americans. We are now on notice that the truth does not set anyone free. The last organization we should be listening to is CAIR. Their loyalties pit them against our nation. It's time we got real about what they stand for. It's time to stand up to their demands. CAIR wanted Piro fired for remarks they deemed to be against Islam. Omar made and continues to make clearly anti-Semitic remarks. If anyone needs to be fired it's Omar.

Democratic Whip Rep. James Clyburn (S-SC) came to Omar's defense by trivializing Holocaust survivors wen he implied that Omar's time in a Kenyan refugee camp was worse than the experiences of Jews. Rep. Clyburn doesn't belong in Congress either. He makes a complete mockery of everything we should stand for.


A Smarter Future

A movement has sprung up among young Jewish people who have no intention of handing over their power and votes to the Democratic party. The movement is called "Jexodus" meaning that Jewish millennials are calling for an exodus from the Dems. Finally, they are realizing that the Democratic party has always taken Jewish support for granted. The Dems no longer represent the values and beliefs of the Jewish people. I am hoping the movement spreads to the older generation. This party is not the Democratc party of yore. It is time for the Jewish community to pack up leave the Dems behind.

Antoine's Song

Let's go children of America

The day of reckoning has arrived

Against you tyranny's flag is raised

Fight back!
