And craven Democrats predictably remain silent.
The relentless campaign to undermine the Trump administration and question the legitimacy of the 2016 election continues apace. The left has an embarked on a Jihad of sorts to embarrass and derail the new administration in a desperate bid to undo the choices made by the American people.
In Congress, Democratic lawmakers – despite the fact that they’re in the minority – are resorting to every trick in the book to delay and impede President Trump’s nominees. The latest to fall victim to this unscrupulous charade is Trump’s deputy attorney general nominee, Rod Rosenstein. Democratic lawmakers on the Judiciary Committee have vowed to “use every possible tool” to block the nomination.
Meanwhile, elements within the media elite have continued to propagate fake news in connection with Russia and the 2016 elections. Despite the fact that there is not a scintilla of evidence substantiating allegations of collusion between Trump’s campaign staff and Russia or that Russian interference with the 2016 election had any impact on the outcome, the purveyors of fake news – principally the New York Times, MSNBC and CNN – continue to suggest otherwise.
Former Obama administration officials, frustrated by their monumental electoral loss and watching helplessly at the reversal of eight years of legacy, have joined forces with leftist lawmakers and media elites. Loretta Lynch, Obama’s corrupt attorney general who secretly met with Bill Clinton (to discuss “grandchildren” and “golf”) while Hillary was under FBI investigation, is on record encouraging anti-Trump chaos and even called for “blood.” That sort of irresponsible talk appears to green light violence and lends fuel to an already volatile situation.
The fourth tier of the anti-Trump campaign involves mass protests, sit-ins and street demonstrations. The media elite like to portray these protests as grassroots but they are anything but. They represent a fringe minority, a cross-section of anarchists, fascists, Marxists, anti-Semites and radical feminists whose sole aim is to spread hate and sow the seeds of chaos. According to Breitbart News, many of the groups involved in organizing anti-Trump hate fests are financed by leftist billionaire George Soros through his “Open Society Foundations” organization.
One such group has scheduled a “Day without a Woman” rally for March 8. The group’s organizers represent the who’s who of the radical left but two stand out as among the worst of a rancid bunch.
The first is Angela Davis, a former Black Panther radical, unrepentant Marxist, notorious supporter of the BDS movement and purveyor of anti-Semitic canards, including the false claim that Israel practices Apartheid against Arabs.
During the height of the Cold War, Davis openly cavorted and collaborated with autocrats from Cuba and the Soviet Union. Her notorious brushes with law enforcement are well known. In 1970 her mug landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. She earned that dubious distinction as a felonious fugitive in connection with her role in a bloody kidnapping-murder incident at a Marin County courtroom in California that left a judge dead and a prosecutor paralyzed for life.
The second is Rasmieh Odeh. According to published reports, this vile woman has at least nine aliases. For those unfamiliar, a summary of Odeh’s life of terror, Jew-hatred and fraud can be found here. She was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and in 1969, helped place a bomb in a Jerusalem supermarket that killed two Jewish youth in their early 20s. She served 10 years for her role in the plot but was released in a prisoner swap. Eventually, Odeh made her way to the U.S. where she fraudulently obtained citizenship by lying about her past during the naturalization process. Her criminal case is currently pending before the federal courts.
With malevolent organizers like that, it comes as no surprise that among the group’s litany of demands is a call for “the decolonization of Palestine” and the dismantling of “all walls, from prison walls to border walls, from Mexico to Palestine.” It is rather ironic that a feminist protest, which ostensibly seeks to advance woman’s rights, chooses a platform that delegitimizes and demonizes the only nation in the Mideast that protects women’s rights. The platform defies reason but then again, leftist anti-Semites are prone to anything but reason. Theirs is an ideology that is rooted in the same form of fascism that drives the radical right.
If the Democratic Party has an ounce of decency left in its decayed coffers, it would unequivocally disavow the organizers of the March 8th event and repudiate their platform. Sadly and predictably, with leaders like Keith Ellison, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders – who either share the pernicious views of Davis and Odeh or are too craven to oppose them – this will not occur.
