Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, joined at left by, Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., Rep. Bradley Schneider, D-Ill., and Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., prepare to walk out of the hearing room briefly after waiting Republican members of the committee to arrive more than an hour after the scheduled start time for a markup session, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 26, 2018. The panel was meeting on their months-long standoff with the Justice Department on the request by the Republican-controlled committee for documents related to the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation and the handling of its probe into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s emails. Democrats charge the subpoena undermines special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russia ties and whether there was obstruction of justice. (AP Photo/J.

It is becoming obvious that the Democrat party has a strong undercurrent of anti-Semitism within it. Right now, the Democrats have two raving, drooling anti-Semites in their caucus. They would be Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar and Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib. There are several other, kinder and gentler and more discreet, like Keith Ellison in the mix. As a friend pointed out on another forum, the Democrats are now treating Jews in the same way that they treated Southern whites. They curried favor with them until their coalition could afford to jettison them without electoral consequences.
In the meantime, however, the Democrats are on the defensive. The fealty many elected Democrats and a large swaths of the Democrat base are showing to the BDS movement (not to be confused with BDSM, though there is substantial overlap) is baking anti-Semitism into the Democrat party at a critical juncture where the Democrats can’t afford…yet…to defenestrate the Jewish segment of their coalition.
But how do you divert attention from an Omar who has now been the subject of two House of Representatives resolutions condemning her virulent and vicious anti-Semitism? You follow the basic rules of avoiding accountability: deny everything, admit nothing, blame others, and make counter-accusations. In this case, they had to find a Republican, any Republican, to accuse of anti-Semitism. And they did.
Fat Jerry Nadler, or “Flappy” as he’s now called after his radical weight loss regime, has proclaimed President Trump guilty of “obstruction” and is now setting about to prove it. Jim Jordan called him on it.
C’mon @RepJerryNadler—at least pretend to be serious about fact finding.
Nadler feeling the heat big time. Jumps to Tom $teyer’s conclusion—impeaching our President—before first document request.
What a Kangaroo court. https://t.co/BpNIzdON1e

This created an avalanche of false outrage.
To be clear, this tweet counts both as inane AND anti-Semitic. https://t.co/zUPL0hIcDf

Anti-Semitic? How? Because of “$teyer.” Everyone knows Democrat money-man Tom Steyer is pushing the impeachment of President Trump.
Hedge fund manager turned environmental billionaire Tom Steyer is spending $10 million on a national ad campaign calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment. A one-minute television ad, launched by Steyer last Friday, accuses Trump of raising the likelihood of nuclear war with North Korea, obstructing justice in his termination of former FBI director James Comey, and violating the Constitution by taking money from foreign governments and threatening to shut down press organizations.
And then the winged monkeys of TheResistance arrived:
Yeah, I get confused between the letter “S” and the money sign on my keyboard all the time too you anti-Semitic PoS! You need to apologize!

Hey @Jim_Jordan: this is textbook antisemitism. You should apologize.

Now it's a senior GOP congressmember peddling anti-Semitic tropes. Let's see if we hear a peep from any of the hypocrites in his own party. https://t.co/pkZSKWrLOa

Wait, wait — only Jews have money? When did that happen?
And, oddly enough, Steyer seems to consider himself an Episcopalian.
As he approached 40, however, Steyer had what he has described as a revelation. He became more involved in the local Episcopalian church, the religion of his mother (his father was a non-practicing Jew), and sought celestial perspective from his myopic financial concerns. “I think I was on this very straightforward escalator – grammar school, high school, college, get a job on Wall Street, kind of everything leads to the next thing,” he says. “But at what point do you get to step back and say, ‘I’d like to take a broader view of my time on this planet?’ ”
It is run by the Episcopal Church and has welcomed immigrants to SF for 122 years. They do amazing work.

And that would be theologically correct as, according to Jewish Law, Jewishness in inherited via the matrilineal line.
Get used to this. The out and proud anti-Semitism exhibited by Omar and Tlaib is only going to fester and grow in the woke hothouse of the Democrat primaries. But, in the meantime, we own Flappy and his posse a debt of gratitude for the vigorous beclowning they gave themselves.
