Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib will stand their ground until they can go to Israel like any other Congressperson votes for aid to that country.
Who will stand up for two Congresswomen of color denied entry to Israel because they do not conform to strict non-dissenting support of the country?
The Democratic Party of Congressional Liberalism is a party that refuses to see beyond the halls of Congress. Alexandria and crew do.
Manufactured scandals to destroy the lives of good people. The Shirley Sherrod story should give caution to those assailing Ilhan Omar.
It is sad that Democrats are unable to defend their left flank, Ilhan Omar, from manufactured scandals for fear of upsetting the mythical center.
Not implementing the will of the people is ultimately the cause of much of our dysfunction from a local to a national level. The mythical center is just that.
Ian Reifowitz wrote likely the best-written essay on the Ilhan Omar issue. Soon after, I invited him to my program Politics Done Right.
