How the “Public Relations” wheel spins round and round.

As I mentioned here yesterday in my piece here at Red State , I was worried that while Israel had every right to ban people coming into their country, they would get smeared P.R. wise.

From my article…

Pelosi is going to have to walk a fine line here. The one HUGE advantage she has is that Donald Trump has already mixed it up with these two. The media will run with picking on people of color nonsense and that he got Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to play along.

While I had people arguing with me about the point, I still stand by it. Everything is run through a P.R. lense and if you want to win the war you better understand these battles. Just saying it doesn’t matter is not enough and quite frankly wishful thinking.

Well, what a difference 24 hours can make.

One of the stated reasons for this visit was for Congressperson Rashida Tlaib to visit her 90-year-old Grandma. As she stated in her request for a humanitarian waiver from the Israeli government she may never get to see her Granmum again who resides in the West Bank of Israel.

(Sorry folks, there is no Palestine. You can blame the body double to former Beatle Ringo Starr, Yasser Arafat, for that debacle.)

As my colleague Bonchie covered here earlier today in this piece Rashida Tlaib Shuns Her Own Grandmother To Trash Israel maybe she was not expecting that waiver to be granted.

That request was granted by Israel with the only condition being that she not promote BDS. Within hours though, Tlaib had changed her mind.

Think about what she’s saying.

Her position is that she values promoting the anti-Semitic BDS movement so much that she’d rather let her grandmother die before visiting her if it means not getting to savage Israel for a few days. Who thinks like this?

Oops.

That backfired quickly.

I’m going to run with the theory that they believed not only would Israel block both of them from going to protest but also block the humanitarian request. When the government of Israel granted her request to visit her Grandmum she was put in a position she NEVER anticipated and she had to come up with some screwball excuse.

Yet that worked perfectly in favor of Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu from a P.R. standpoint.

Yesterday they ganged up on some harmless ladies just wanting to go on a tour of the Holy Land. Today with Tlaib scrambling to come up with an excuse for NOT visiting her 90 yr old Matriarch she turned the whole narrative around.

In less than 24 hours. That is Trump-like impressive in terms of running a news cycle.

I can’t wait to see what the ladies of the “Progressive Cheer Squad” come up with next to do to not only try to knock Trump down a notch but also give Nancy Pelosi such a splitting headache she might send them overseas and not allow them back into the country. Which would be very Trump-like also and be another P.R.victory for POTUS 45.

God Bless America.

Washington Post Claims That Israel Barring Terror Sympathizers From The Squad Is Great For Democrats

The decision by the Israeli government to ban a couple of rabid anti-Semites with strong links to a terrorist front organization from leading their own special little congressional delegation to try to incite more conflict in the West Bank and Gaza has spawned a small industry of profoundly bad hot takes. Most of them look something like this:

or the shrill, high-pitched, spittle-flecked version

Some are long winded and remarkably stupid

These all operate on the dishonest premise–and I say dishonest to give the benefit of the doubt because you’d have to be an utter dolt to not look at their itinerary–that Omar and Tlaib were going to meet with any Israelis. They weren’t. You can’t debate and win over people who are traveling to your country to give aid and comfort and some measure of political legitimacy to terrorists.

This, however, is one of the worst. It is bad because it it not only stupid but it is lazy.

How exactly does this work?

First, it was disrespectful to the U.S. Congress, which has been a consistently stalwart friend of Israel. Setting aside the foreign policy views of these two congresswomen, U.S. congressional delegations should not be denied entry anywhere. Period.
…By denying them entry, Israel has turned its U.S. opponents into martyrs and distracted attention from their wrongheaded views rather than bringing them out into the open. I was actually looking forward to their trip, thinking it was going to produce a real headache for Democrats.

It is disrespectful of anti-Semites and terrorist sympathizers, for sure. To the extent people with those proclivities, in addition to the usual sexual deviancies, constitute a significant proportion of the Democrat party, it might be construed as being disrespectful of Democrats but Congress is actually a bit larger than that and there is scant evidence that very many people actually care that Tlaib and Omar were denied entry. After all, they declined to join a very large congressional delegation, 41 Democrats led by Steny Hoyer, that visited Israel just a couple of weeks ago in favor of their own little melodrama.

This is all sheer numbskullery. But now on to the real attention getter. How this hurt the GOP. Because, you see, to a casual observer one would think that ripping the mask off a couple anti-Semitic fascists by revealing their agenda and then publicly shaming them…to the extent either is capable of feeling shame, I mean, once you’ve married your brother you’ve sort of proven yourself to be impervious to conventional social pressure…and by then having the leadership of the Democrat party defend them, you’ve gone a long, long way to making Omar and Tlaib the public face of the Democrat party. But, my friend, you don’t play 8 dimensional chess like a card-carrying member of the GOPe would, a view point that lets them always snatch defeat from the slobbering jaws of victory.

The Democratic Party has a troubling strain of anti-Semitism running through it in greater force than at any other time in my memory. Britain’s Labour Party has a similar problem right now, but U.S.-Israeli ties are so tight that it is a bigger problem in Washington. But Israel’s shortsighted move allows the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to score points by defending this half of “the Squad” instead of being on the defensive for the wild things they may have otherwise said during their visit to Israel. I am sure all of the candidates who hope to be President Trump’s opponent in November 2020 are breathing a sigh of relief.

Denying Omar and Tlaib a platform to visit the country they have both maligned was a mistake. It did them a service, not Israel…

This is nonsense. Pelosi and Hoyer and other prominent Democrats have had to defend them to placate the party’s Jacobin wing. Those defenses, juxtaposed with the hideously anti-Jewish and anti-America rhetoric those two churn out will blanket the airwaves during election season.

Israel did the right thing by making it clear that it will not admit people who are sworn to its destruction. Omar and Tlaib made a conscious choice to parrot rhetoric that falls shockingly close to al-Qaeda’s statements on Israel. They get to reap the benefits of being terror apologist. This probably isn’t going to hurt either Omar or Tlaib as they come from safe districts. But to think that this will hurt the GOP and help Democrats doesn’t even rise the level of stupid but, then, it is coming from a GOPe guy so that is baked it.

The Assault Allegation Against CNN’s Don Lemon Has Now Been Corroborated By an Eye Witness

Westlake Legal Group don-lemon-ted-cruz-harassment-SCREENSHOT-620x333 The Assault Allegation Against CNN’s Don Lemon Has Now Been Corroborated By an Eye Witness vulgar Politics Pervert Murf's Gounelas Gay Man Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Dustin Hice double standard Don Lemon democrats CNN Brett Kavanaugh assault

A few days ago, I shared the news that CNN’s Don Lemon was being sued for assault dealing with him allegedly putting his hands down his pants, making sexual references, and then shoving his fingers in another man’s mustache. Now, another man has now come forward and provided eye witness corroboration of the alleged assault.

The account starts with Dustin Hice and George Gounelas having drinks at a bar in the Hamptons. Apparently, Hice offered to buy Lemon and drink. Later, after Lemon had become visibly drunk, he is said to have approached the two men. Then this happened according to Gounelas per Fox News.

“Don Lemon has now come around the corner and is standing face to face with us. There is a beam, a pole, in the place. Don’s standing up against the pole, face to face with Dustin, I turn around and I’m standing right there between the two of them,” Gounelas said. “He’s saying, ‘So you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me?’”

Hice responded, “Nah, man, I just wanted to say, ‘What’s up?’” according to Gounelas.

Gounelas told Fox News he couldn’t recall what Lemon said verbatim, but it was “along the lines of, ‘Do you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me, because you wanna f— me?’”

Gounelas said Lemon appeared “pretty drunk” when he confronted the duo at the wee-hours watering hole.

“He put his hands down his pants, inside his board shorts, grabbed his [genitals], and then came out with two fingers and, like, clipped Dustin’s nose up and down with two fingers asking ‘do you like p—- or d—?’” Gounelas said.

Congrats to Don Lemon. The assault allegation against him now has more corroboration than any of the accusations made again Brett Kavanaugh, which Don Lemon ran with and pushed relentlessly on CNN for months. By his standards, it’s probably time to step down right? I’ve been assured those are the rules now by the left.

Some may say this isn’t credible because Gounela is biased, being friends with the victim. That’s not the standard anyone on the right has been living under the past few years. Numerous “contemporaneous” witnesses who are friends of supposed victims have been used as corroborative evidence in past cases.

Gounelas continued his account by explaining Hice’s shock at what had just happened.

Gounelas said he laughed during the alleged incident and immediately mocked Hice as “gross” because of Lemon’s alleged actions – but Hice didn’t think it was a laughing matter.

“Dustin was in this shock mode saying, ‘Bro, did that just happen? That was disgusting,’” Gounelas said before explaining that he didn’t think it was too unusual at the time. “The whole thing is like, I go out in the Hamptons, I live out here, I have a restaurant, I get it, people get crazy. To me, it was just another thing. To [Dustin], he was like shocked.”

If this account were untrue, I doubt that Gounelas would admit he laughed at Hice after it happened. The description of events is also oddly specific. As an extortion attempt, it’s pretty weak, which leads me to at least suspect there’s some truth to it.

In the end, I personally don’t think this is that big of a deal. Is it gross? Yeah, but I’m not sure the plaintiff deserves over a million dollars for it. Crazy, out of line stuff happens at bars with drunk people. That’s just a reality. Regardless, that’s not the standard that’s been set by figures like Don Lemon and networks like CNN. If this accusation is proven true, Lemon should be forced to resign. These people have to be made to live by their own rules.

Heartbreak: AOC Will Not Schedule Any Future Israel Trips Until Squad Members Tlaib and Omar Are Allowed

In the aftermath of Israel’s Thursday announcement that they would bar Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) entry into the country on security grounds, there was much outrage expressed in Democratic circles.

Tlaib’s and Omar’s fellow Squad Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and Ayanna Pressley (MA) were especially incensed, and took to the Twitter machine to air their disgust.

As I wrote yesterday, Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet proclaiming this was about Israel “exporting bigotry” by refusing to allow “Muslims of color” entry into their country was, to put it mildly, horse ****. But she didn’t stop there.

In a later tweet, the freshman Congresswoman asserted that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision was an impediment to the peace process, and that as a result she would not be scheduling future trips to Israel until her BDS-supporting pals were allowed in:

AOC probably meant this as some sort of serious blow to the Israeli government, but if so, she failed miserably. I think it’s safe to say that her hurt feelings and that of the rest of the BDS Caucus are not even remotely on the list of priorities for the Israeli government to sort out.

And besides, there’s still this, which not a single member of The Squad nor their mainstream media enablers will acknowledge:

I mean, seriously. You really shouldn’t expect to be welcomed with open arms into any country you’ve denigrated, trashed, and encouraged people to boycott. This isn’t rocket science, y’all.

A Popular Meme Points Out the Idiocy of Democratic Dissent as Women Long to Be Free as Guns

Westlake Legal Group women-3422243_1280-620x413 A Popular Meme Points Out the Idiocy of Democratic Dissent as Women Long to Be Free as Guns Women Uncategorized The Sexes Politics patriarchy misogyny male chauvinism Guns gun control Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story donald trump democrats debate Culture Allow Media Exception

 

 

First of all, in case you missed it: “Best & Stupidest This Week: The UK Wars With Cutlery, Offers Knife-Free Chicken Boxes & Tales Of Murder For Dinner.”

And now:

American politics could really be an interesting place: Imagine two sides with very different ideologies, frequently and thoughtfully debating the merits of their passionate principles on the national stage.

Fascinating.

What we largely have instead is a game of money and power propelled by enough hot air to fly the Hindenburg to Timbuktu.

And in this present anti-Trump era — where Democrats are concerned — nothing seems to matter anymore. So far as I can tell, people tend to just say whatever’s the most inflammatory, despite it having not the slightest hair-thin tether to reality.

Every day, there’s a new batch of assertions that are as completely foolish as they are pitifully transparent.

And looking over the silliness, I recently came across a meme presumably based on a December 2015 tweet.

The original Twitter post came by way of a comedienne; subsequently, I believe it deserves the leeway of a joke. But when placed in the arena of serious ideas, #notsogood.

Here’s the piece of pro-Democrat protest:

HuffPost doesn’t appear terribly opposed: “The Constitution Gives Gun Owners Greater Rights Than Women.”

And some tweeters were stoked:

Gay Pride Lion loved it:

But Twitter also noted the nuttiness:

Responsibly Armed hit upon a certain considerable truth:

And this leads me to the meme. It reads “I Dream Women Will One Day Have the Same Rights as Guns.”

That statement is, to me, a fantastic indication of where we are — the level of imbecility that’s become the national dialogue. People are saying and posting and sharing things which make absolutely no sense. Why speak reason when you can stick your finger down your throat and prop-puke words that ring the alarm?

Beto O’Rourke does it (here). So does Nancy Pelosi (here and here). The politisphere is brimming with bulemic boobs.

As for the meme, witness a bit of sense spoken into the madness:

She wants women not allowed on airplanes.
She wants women not allowed in schools.
She wants women kept out of government buildings.
She wants women kept away from children.
Businesses can post signs: “No women allowed.”
She wants women severely restricted in Hawaii and California.
Women will not be allowed anywhere alcohol is consumed.
Women cannot be carried without a special permit.
Women will be prohibited from having certain popular accessories.
A man can now own multiple women, but only after a background check.

Right. I pine for a day when the absurdity will cease, and impassioned proselytizers from all sides will tout the explained worthiness of their ideas.

But that day won’t be today. Party on.

The Left Shows How Insane It’s Become With This Ludicrous Piece on Ilhan Omar

Westlake Legal Group ilhan-omar-pensive-620x317 The Left Shows How Insane It’s Become With This Ludicrous Piece on Ilhan Omar Ted Cruz STEVE SCALISE republicans Rand Paul Politics Israel Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

The cult-like support for Rep. Ilhan Omar has generated some fascinating stances from her supporters, and when I say “fascinating,” I mean absolutely insane.

Take, for instance, this article from Tasmiha Khan of The Independent.

Right off the bat, you can tell this article is going to be a lesson in how political zealousness can literally alter the way you perceive reality. She titles the piece “No politician in living memory has been treated as badly as Ilhan Omar.” Without reading any further into my arguments, I’m sure you already have solid examples as to how this article is just plain stupid.

I’ll continue anyway.

Khan starts off the article with the usual “orange man bad” spiel about how President Donald Trump is a racist and hates Muslims. He doesn’t, but nuances seem to escape Khan. She then proceeds to victimize herself as a Muslim woman of color in a white society, painting herself as a person in danger. Self-victimization is pretty par for the course when it comes to anti-Trump screeds.

After some time, Khan finally gets around to the point by comparing herself to Omar:

It makes me feel that I, like Omar, am also under the magnifying glass. I should not have to fear for my life or that of any other Muslim. If we allow such cruel rhetoric to snowball, we are contributing towards our own demise.

Moving forward, normalizing the hijab would be the first step towards removing stigma and pressure against women like myself and Ilhan. Engaging in dialogue about topics that make us uncomfortable, such as the hijab, can also help to dismantle stereotypes and increase understanding.

It is certainly no coincidence that the two US congresswomen reportedly barred from entering Israel are women of colour, with one of them wearing the hijab and following the Muslim faith. This ban was allegedly made at the president’s request, and is the reality of how Muslim women are stigmatized. It seems the defenders of free speech grow quiet when it is Muslims who are being unfairly silenced.

In short, Trump hates Muslim women of color because they’re Muslim women of color according to Khan.

It’s been said to death at this point, but Israel barred Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Omar from their nation because they supported the BDS movement. Israel has hard and fast rules against that kind of thing, and it shouldn’t have been a surprise that Israel disinvited them.

What’s more, even if Trump did have a hand in it, it wouldn’t matter. As I discussed previously, Tlaib and Omar had nothing but antagonism toward Israel as their goal, and Trump’s advice was solidly taken. It turned out to be the right call, especially given the fact that Tlaib essentially admitted she was going as an anti-Israel activist with her recent refusal to visit the West Bank to see her grandmother at Israel’s invitation under the condition that she leave her politics at the door.

(READ: Even If Trump’s Tweet Shifted Israel’s Decision On Omar And Tlaib, It’s Still The Right Call)

But let’s put that aside for a second and focus on Khan’s claim that Omar is the worst treated politician in living memory.

She’s not. In fact, she’s on the low end of the totem pole considering things that have happened even just recently.

If the left truly believes Omar is the worst treated politician in living memory, then their memory is incredibly short and narrow.

Rashida Tlaib Shuns Her Own Grandmother to Trash Israel

Just in case anyone was still under the impression that the trip to Israel planned by Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib was anything but a political stunt, let me relieve you of that notion.

To recap, Israel announced yesterday that they would be taking a pass on letting Omar and Tlaib prance around the country pushing boycotts and trashing the Jewish state. Seems reasonable to me.

Keep in mind, both Congressional members had the chance to go to Israel with the other 70 members of Congress that just got back. They refused because we all know what their real goal was. Their itinerary included meeting with numerous groups with terrorism ties and planning a dangerous visit to the Temple Mount with Palestinian authority members.

The entire trip was clearly just a propaganda tour to tout the anti-Semitic BDS movement and deny Israel’s right to exist. In fact, just to make that last point clear, they refused to even label their trip as being to Israel, instead asserting they were going to “Palestine,” which does not exist.

Despite the bad faith shown by Omar and Tlaib, Israel did offer to grant the latter a humanitarian waiver to go visit her grandmother in the West Bank.

Initially, Tlaib wrote a letter requesting to enter and promised not to promote BDS while in the country. Her grandmother is 90 and isn’t likely to be around much longer.

Westlake Legal Group tlaib0letter-768x537 Rashida Tlaib Shuns Her Own Grandmother to Trash Israel Sanction rashida tlaib Politics Israel Ilhan Omar Gross Grandmother Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story ego divest democrats boycott bds antisemitism anti-semitic

That request was granted by Israel with the only condition being that she not promote BDS. Within hours though, Tlaib had changed her mind.

Think about what she’s saying.

Her position is that she values promoting the anti-Semitic BDS movement so much that she’d rather let her grandmother die before visiting her if it means not getting to savage Israel for a few days. Who thinks like this?

This is ego and politics over family to such a degree that it’s pretty stunning to witness.

The Israelis are rightfully pointing to this as proof they made the right decision yesterday. Rashida Tlaib’s hatred of Israel is so ingrained and pervasive that she’s shunning her own grandmother over it.

You want to know the real reason Tlaib wrote that letter? Because she wanted Israel to say no. That would have allowed her to claim them as being so cruel they wouldn’t even let her visit her dying grandmother. When Israel said yes, that left her scrambling and this was the best she could come up with.

As I wrote yesterday, Israel 100% made the right choice to not let Omar and Tlaib into the country. This latest move by Tlaib only reinforces that. These are not genuine actors. They are propagandists for the Palestinian Authority, a terror regime, and they deserve absolutely no platform to spread their hatred. Israel had no obligation to give them one.

As Joe Biden Takes Time off in Delaware, David Axelrod Rips Suggestions His Campaign Events Be Scaled Back

On Thursday, I wrote about reports that some of Joe Biden’s allies were growing increasingly concerned about the number of gaffes he’s made just this month alone. Some of the unnamed allies suggested his campaign consider cutting back on his public appearances to lessen the chances of him making more mistakes.

Here’s a brief recap of what else the allies were saying, via The Hill:

Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time as the campaign intensifies in the fall.

“He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also has to pace himself,” said one ally who has talked to members of the campaign team and others in the broader Biden World about how to move forward.

The ally said it was unclear whether the campaign would make any changes to Biden’s schedule, particularly because Biden was criticized recently for not doing as many events as his Democratic rivals.

Campaign officials for Biden have grasped on to the “Joe being Joe” excuse in recent days in attempting to explain away his gaffes, and have accused the mainstream media of essentially making something out of nothing. One top Biden adviser told CNN this was a “press narrative, not a voter narrative.”

Biden’s press secretary T.J. Ducklo also took a swipe at media coverage of Biden’s flubs earlier this week:

President Barack Obama’s senior adviser David Axelrod, who is not shy about weighing in on the Democratic presidential race, on Thursday ripped suggestions that Biden’s schedule load be lightened to avoid the possibility he’d commit another embarrassing flub:

The Biden campaign’s agitation with the press over their focus on his gaffes, and the reports about the advice some allies are giving the campaign about thinning out Biden’s schedule come at a time when the candidate himself is vacationing in his home state of Delaware:

It’s unclear whether Biden’s vacation was scheduled in advance or if it was a decision hastily made in the aftermath of all of the gaffes his made over the last several weeks.

A couple of months ago, President Trump insinuated there might be a more troubling reason why Axelrod’s former boss President Obama was not outright endorsing his former veep for President that went beyond merely not wanting to show favoritism before the primaries even started.

Trump told reporters last week when asked about Biden that he believed the Democratic frontrunner was “not playing with a full deck.” The President told a crowd of supporters in Manchester, New Hampshire Thursday that he would never be able to get away with scaling back his appearances. “If I ever did that it would be over. The fake news would get us.”

Newly Declassified Documents Show Hillary’s Server Was Compromised, Emails Forwarded to Chinese Email Account

On the eve of DNI Dan Coats stepping down, we got a rash of declassifications dealing with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server.

As with all things dealing with this topic, it’s complicated and can be hard to follow. But we aren’t dealing with anonymous sources or speculation here. These are actual documents and that have just been declassified. Perhaps this dump shows President Trump is keeping his promise on that front?

Brian Cates (Epoch Times) laid out exactly what we are seeing in a lengthy thread that I’m not going to fully post here. I’d suggest you go read it to get the full picture. I’ll do my best to summarize and highlight the major revelations though.

Essentially, the FBI found in the metadata that every email sent and received on Clinton’s home brew server was being copied to an email address registered to a Chinese company named Carter Heavy Industries.

Who setup this email address? We now know the answer to that.

Paul Combetta was Hillary’s IT specialist and he was inexplicably given blanket immunity by James Comey’s FBI during the Hillary email investigation. This despite the fact that he clearly broke the law and apparently had absolutely nothing of substance to offer investigators.

Typically, you don’t give immunity to someone who can’t help you land a bigger fish. But as most reading this know, nothing about the Hillary email investigation made sense. It was clearly ran as a whitewash operation of any possible criminal activity. These new documents further establish that, as we see James Comey and Peter Strzok actively suppressed the evidence in question.

In fact, the only reason we are finding out about this is because the Inspector General filed a supplemental report to fill in gaps left in the original IG report on the Hillary investigation.

The excuse being given by some defenders is that Combetta made the email account so that means it was just an account to archive Clinton’s emails. That leaves way too many questions unanswered and makes little sense.

If you want to setup a dummy account, why are you using a Chinese company as the domain? The first thought would be to ask if Combetta was being paid off by the Chinese to forward the emails to them. That’s probably the least controversial explanation though. If Clinton herself was involved in the distribution of the materials, things would really escalate. The IG came up inconclusive, unable to pin down exactly the provenance and purpose of the Chinese email address. What we do know is that the FBI leadership at the time glossed over the evidence and essentially buried it.

Past that, even if we are to believe that Combetta picked the name at random, it means he broke the law by illegally archiving classified government documents. Of course, we all know Combetta was not acting alone. Hillary Clinton was his boss and had to have been directing him to do these things. What that points to is the magical intent that James Comey claimed didn’t exist (intent wasn’t actually required in the criminal statute regardless).

There’s a lot more in Cates’ thread and I’d again encourage you to read through it. This entire ordeal is just a mess and from what’s being rumored, it’s not over. Bill Barr is on record saying John Huber, who is part of the investigation into all this, is looking at the question of the 33,000 emails Clinton illegally destroyed.

It’s been said a million times and I’ll say it once more. If this were anyone but Hillary Clinton, they’d be in jail by now.

Babylon Bee Posts the Definitive Take on Omar’s and Tlaib’s Reactions to Israel Deciding to Bar Them

People of all political stripes have weighed in today after Israel’s announcement that they would be barring Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) from entering the country because they believed the two freshman Congresswomen intended to “harm Israel” and “increase incitement against it” with their visit.

That the reasons given by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are valid has not stopped The Usual SuspectsWestlake Legal Group 2122 Babylon Bee Posts the Definitive Take on Omar’s and Tlaib’s Reactions to Israel Deciding to Bar Them Social Media rashida tlaib Politics North Carolina Minnesota Michigan Israel Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Congress Benjamin Netanyahu bds Babylon Bee anti-semitism Allow Media Exception   from weighing in and asserting, among other things, that Israel is engaging in “bigotry” and showing “enormous disrespect” to the pro-BDS Congressional representatives.

Omar called the decision an “affront” and an “insult to democratic values,” saying Netanyahu had “aligned himself with Islamophobes like Donald Trump.” Tlaib tweeted a photo of her grandmother, stating “The decision by Israel to bar her granddaughter, a U.S. Congresswoman, is a sign of weakness b/c the truth of what is happening to Palestinians is frightening.”

Perhaps the best take of all on this issue is the one that is the least hysterical. And that is what the Babylon Bee did today with its “report” on Tlaib’s and Omar’s reactions:

Here’s what they wrote:

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar reported Thursday they were bewildered that they got banned from Israel, a country they seem to believe shouldn’t exist at all.

“It’s racism,” said Omar in a press conference. “It’s all due to racism. Well, that and a Jewish conspiracy. The Jews are behind this, for sure.” (The evidence indicates she’s correct on this assertion, a first for her accusations against Jews).

Tlaib agreed, saying she wanted to ask Jews about the Holocaust so she could relax and get a “calming feeling” while she was there.

Brilliant and on point, as always.
