‘The Godfather’ Actor Speaks on Chris Cuomo’s Fredo Freakout: ‘His Father Would Smack Him’

CNN correspondents Jeff Gagliano and Chris Cuomo speak on air in front of the Time Warner Building, where NYPD personnel removed an explosive device Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, in New York. (AP Photo/Kevin Hagen).

 

 

Chris Cuomo’s — brace yourself…I’m about to use a word virtually no one seems to use correctly in political writing these days — viral rant over being called “Fredo” continues to have legs.

An actor from the hit film The Godfather — in which the character Fredo is outshone by his brother, Michael Corleone — is sounding off on Chris’s stunningly expletive-filled and threatening tirade.

Speaking to TMZ, Gianni Russo (who played Michael’s wife-beating brother-in-law in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 masterpiece) said Chris’s late dad, former New York Governor Mario, wouldn’t be pleased:

“His father would smack him.”

His opinion isn’t exactly uninformed:

“[I] know the whole family. I know his mother. I was just with his mother recently.”

The interviewer asked, “Is [‘Fredo’] an Italian insult?”

“I can’t believe he would say that,” Gianni replied.



TMZ went for a second helping —  “His father would be ashamed of him for saying that?”

Gianni:

“Of course. I don’t understand why — first of all, it’s a classic film. You’re talking about a character that was weak.”

Back to the tabloid titan:

“[T]hat word, ‘Fredo,’ means ‘weak brother.’ It doesn’t mean anything against the Italian people.”

“I know,” the actor affirmed.

Russo explained his surprise because Chris is a smart guy:

“I couldn’t understand, because he’s such an intelligent kid — educated and everything else. I heard he’s hurt his career.”

The 75-year-old entertainer also touched on the downfall of what was once called “news”:

“All these news guys, they’re so opinionated. They’re supposed to report the news. It’s not about what you think.”

Can he get an Amen?

Gianni’s not a fan of the current Corleone controversy:

“And you’re taking Fredo, a character from a classic? It’s like spitting on the Mona Lisa.”

But he won’t be picking up the phone to tell Chris what’s what:

“I wouldn’t even call him. What are you gonna say? ‘You made a fool outta yourself.’”

In case you haven’t seen the video, I’m including it here. Beware — language:



Personally, I’ve never heard of the movie reference as an Italian slur; have you? Is “Fredo” now some sort of vulgar word?

In terms of Chris’s posturing, chest-puffed, hooliganesque harangue, it seems to me a very bad move. Especially given this self-portrayal as a paragon of virtue.

Also, if he’d done any of the things he was threatening, the other guy would’ve been able to relax on the beach for several years thanks to a robust civil suit. The intimidation factor was surely very low — I doubt the target of Chris’s attack was afraid-O.

Oops.

‘Feminist’ Dad Brags He’ll Scream Hate at MAGA Wearers Because They’re Hate-Mongering Racists. Black Conservative Socks it To Him

Black Conservative Socks it To Him woke Uncategorized tolerance racism Race Politics LGBT Front Page Stories Feminism donald trump democrats civility bigotry Allow Media Exception

 

 

[WARNING: LANGUAGE]

Last week, a #superwoke dad promised to be uncivil and intolerant.

Why? Because anyone who supports Trump is a racist, a misogynist, a bigot, and/or a hate-monger.

Therefore, he’ll tell them all “F*** you”:

Let’s review:

MAGA voters are hate-monger; but he’s the one who’ll yell “F*** you.”

Trumpers are bigots; therefore, he won’t put up with their views.

Definition of “bigotry”: “Intolerance of an opposing view.”

This is where we are.

The bigotry-endorsing, hate-mongering anti-bigot/anti-hate-monger spends his time these days being a “Dad, #Feminist, (and) #GunSense Reform Advocate,” as well as an “#LGBTQ Supporter” as per his Twitter profile.

Not included: “Fan of the dictionary.”

Some people didn’t appreciate Stirling’s sentiment — such as this sh**-dealing, misogynistic, homophobic, racist bigot:

It should go without saying, of course, that they could in fact be racist, only because anyone could be racist. Including — dare I say — Democrats.

But how’s Stirling gonna retort?

Twitter user Laura Schleif swooped in to Democratsplain:

This was a good one:

Interesting commentary followed both of Anthony’s posts:

I have no idea what this is or means, but I know I love it:

Stirling’s social media statement brings to mind the wealth of  absurdity whirling about in contemporary politics. People appear to be saying things because they think they sound good, despite a total lack of anything related to reality or reason.

For more, please read:

Ilhan Omar Calls The Hijab A Symbol Of Rebellion. A Woman Rebels Against It, Gets 38 Years In Prison” and “The 10 Stages Of Genocide: A Social Media Marvel Provides A Window Into America’s Growing Mental Disorder.”

But in the meantime, you may wanna stay away from Stirling — that anti-hate non-bigot will scream at you because you don’t agree with him.

90-Year-Old Man Gets Arrested for Murdering His 83-Year-Old Wife

Westlake Legal Group elderl_fitted-620x349 90-Year-Old Man Gets Arrested for Murdering His 83-Year-Old Wife Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

They say whenever a married woman is killed, the husband is the first you should look.

Apparently, sometimes people feel stuck in their situation. To the frustrated and murderous, divorce can appear a less attractive option than more severe means.

But what about when it’s almost over anyway?

That made no difference to a 90-year-old man in South Carolina, according to investigators.

Nonagenarian Edwin Nelson, Jr., ‘fessed up to shooting his 83-year-old wife, Sarah M. Nelson.

Deputies showed up at the geriatric couple’s residence in Ridgeville at 5:20 a.m. Saturday. Dispatch had gotten a call from the man of the house.

Cops located both the victim and suspect. Mrs. Nelson had passed away at the scene.

I’ve said it before: You never know what’s going on with people. Or behind closed doors.

Regardless of the catalyst for such a terrible act, one thing seems extremely likely: For both Edwin and Sarah Nelson — considering the situation in which they both ended up — life surely must not have been filled with joy.

It’s a good reminder: Make your life choices carefully.

A motive has yet to be determined, but Edwin confessed to murdering his wife.

A bond hearing was set for Sunday morning.

Since January, James Comey & His Wife Have Given a Ton of Money to Democrats – Here’s How Much, & to Whom

Westlake Legal Group obama-comey-620x413 Since January, James Comey & His Wife Have Given a Ton of Money to Democrats – Here’s How Much, & to Whom Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

“For years, I dreamed of an end to talk of Russian collusion. Decades, even. Sadly, it never, ever came.”

Those are the feared words of my autobiography. 

Written when I’m 97…

…as I hear MSNBC discuss the investigation by nursing home legend and Lifespan-World-Record-Holder Robert Mueller

It just can never end. It just can’t.

So what of the man who started it all, under whose watch was initiated Operation Crossfire Hurricane?

Here’s a bit of interesting info, perhaps: According to filings by the Federal Election Commission, so far this year, James Comey and his wife have contributed nearly $20,000 to Democrats.

Comey got canned within four months of Trump taking the White House, and he’s been outspokenly proud to be magnanimously anti-MAGA.

In fact, he’s called on America to decimate The Donald.

From a December appearance in New York City:

“All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021.”

So here’s how some of his donations break down:

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota got $2,700; so did Virginia’s Jennifer Wexton and Abigail Spanberger. 

Comey’s wife, Patrice, gave the same amount to Kamala Harris, with an additional $2.8K going to her primary campaign.

Patrice also threw $1,000 to Emily’s List — a liberal PAC supporting pro-choice candidates.

As for that scandalous night when Donald J. snagged the most powerful position on earth, Patrice wanted Hillary Clinton to win — as she confided George Stephanopoulos — “really badly.”

Things used to be a fair bit different: James was, at a time, a Republican. 

He once gave wads of dough to male 2008 and 2012 hopefuls — John McCain and Mitt Romney.

As I said, things have definitely changed.

Bonus, from The Washington Free Beacon:

Patrice gave a $10,000 contribution to the Fair Fight PAC, a committee linked to failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, in mid-May. Abrams recently pushed $1.2 million from the PAC to Fair Fight Action, an affiliated dark money group that is ramping up voter-related initiatives for the 2020 elections.

Let’s Talk About Beto – He’s Sure Talking About You…Racists

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) speaks to the crowd during the “Turn Out for Texas” concert and rally at Auditorium Shores on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018 in Austin, Texas. O’Rourke is running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his senate seat. (Photo by Laura Roberts/Invision/AP Images)

 

 

Yo’ve seen it all before: Someone runs for President and starts to teach America about itself.

Beto O’Rourke wants all of you to know about all of you; and a lot of you, as it turns out, are racist.

At Saturday night’s Third Annual Clinton Dinner in Little Rock, Arkansas, Beto said…

Well, actually, let’s look at some other things he’s said up ’til now.

From “Beto O’Rourke Assigns Blame For The El Paso Shooting“:

From “Communist Revolutionary: Privileged Millionaire Beto Vows To Destroy America’s Wealth & Privilege“:

Beto — who inherited millions and married into half a billion — promised to get rid of…himself.

From “Beto Tweets Condemnation To A President Who Doesn’t Exist & Continues His Vapid Contribution To The Politics Of Nothingness“:

Recently, he let you know what’s good enough for ya:

“There have even been some who suggested that I stay in Texas and run for Senate. But that would not be good enough for this community. That would not be good enough for El Paso. That would not be good enough for this country.”

So only he is good enough for you.

And what’s good enough for you is for you to be told you’re racist.

So let me get this straight… Let’s assume for a moment that Beto’s referring to racism against non-whites by white people.

If true, that means here’s his plan to snag the Oval Office:

Tell the minority of people they’re being unjustly attacked by A-holes. Tell the majority they’re the A-holes.

Does that sound like a good approach to getting a winning number of votes?

Maybe it is.

I guess we’ll find out.

It seems to be working for him — so far, he might have at least 3%.

Good goin’.

Bernie Sanders’ Criminal Justice Reform Plan

=========
=========
Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.
=========
=========

As we have previously noted, the accused Philadelphia shooter of three days ago should have been in prison on the day that he shot — thankfully with all the accuracy of Imperial Storm Troopers — six Philadelphia Police officers, but was out on the streets because the judges in the City of Brotherly Love were too lenient. We have also pointed out that the spate of murders of Philadelphia Police officers from 2007 to 2009 was caused by other criminals who were in the custody of the judicial system but who were sentenced too leniently and paroled too early even on short sentences. And we have written about lax and lenient law enforcement which allowed Nikolas Cruz to have no criminal record, despite dozens of ‘contacts’ with the Broward County Sheriff’s Department, enabling him to pass the criminal background check and buy the weapons with which he shot up the Stoneman Douglas High School, killing seventeen students and staffers.

Naturally, there are more such failures:

  • In the Texas church shooting, the killer had a conviction in an Air Force court martial, but it was never reported to the NICS, meaning that Devin Kelley was able to buy a weapon legally that he would never have been allowed if the Air Force had made the proper reports. Of course, he should still have been in jail when the massacre happened, but wasn’t because he was given too lenient a sentence.
  • Parole officers let Byron Allen get by with a positive test for PCP, doing nothing about throwing him back in jail .  .  . and a Kensington woman nearly paid for it with her life.  Mr Allen has been charged with one murder, and is under investigation for two more, and is suspected in at least four sexual assaults, but the parole officers in charge of monitoring his activities did nothing.
  • Officials in Multnomah County, Oregon, were asked by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to notify them when they were going to release Sergio José Martinez, an illegal immigrant with a lengthy criminal record, who had been previously deported twenty times, but they declined to do so under idiotic ‘sanctuary’ policies, and he attacked another woman.
  • Kevin Janson Neal killed five people, after Tehama County, California law enforcement let him go following reported incidents of him firing ‘hundreds of rounds’ from a gun he was legally barred from owning. Who will be held accountable for this? Sheriff Dave Hencratt is directly responsible for the failure of his department to take the necessary and legally justified actions to place Mr Neal under arrest, to have him locked up when he should have been locked up, and because he failed to do his job, five people are dead. Will Sheriff Hencratt pay for his negligence by being brought up on criminal negligence charges? Will he at least be fired? Will anyone who was negligent in doing his duty be punished in any way?
  • Mujey Dumbaya was found dead, just before she was scheduled to testify against Quinn Anthony James for raping her, a convicted felon with a long rap sheet, who was out on bail. Why was a sexual predator, with a record dating back to 1991, who had admitted to sex with the victim, but claimed it was consensual — which it couldn’t be, since she was only 15 at the time — ever allowed out on bail? Some idiotic judge, who will never be called to account for his decision, allowed it.

And Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the failed presidential candidate of 2016 and a contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, wants to make things worse!

Bernie Sanders Unveils Sweeping Criminal Justice Reform Plan

by David Boddiger | August 18, 2019 | 5:38 PM EDT

Sen. Bernie Sanders unveiled on Sunday a broad plan to overhaul the country’s criminal justice system that includes the goal of reducing the prison population by half.

Among the proposals, which Sanders announced during a campaign stop in Columbia, SC, are putting an end to the for-profit prison system, legalizing marijuana, ending the federal death penalty and urging states to do the same, and banning the cash bail system, which jails hundreds of thousands of poor people each year.

“America is now the world’s leading jailer. We lock up more than 2 million people in America, which is more of our own people than any country on Earth,” his campaign website states.

In South Carolina, Sanders acknowledged that people in U.S. prisons are “disproportionately poor, disproportionately minority — African American, Latino, Native American,” The Washington Post reported.

Ahead of the plan’s public release, the Vermont senator told the Associated Press that the U.S. justice system is “racist” and “needs fundamental change.”

What does the socialist from Vermont want to do?

Sanders wants to do away with “three strikes” laws and expand alternative sentencing, according to the AP. Part of criminal justice reform also would include better care for mental health issues, a major contributor to the country’s burgeoning prison population. . . . .

“We must end the school-to-prison pipeline,” his campaign stated.

If only the school-to-prison pipeline had existed in Broward County, Florida, and Mr Cruz been in prison for his various assaults, there would have been seventeen people who would have gone home on St Valentine’s Day of 2018, rather than to the morgue. If only a weakling judge had sentenced Daniel Giddings to the term for which the District Attorney asked, rather than half that, and the parole board not released him even earlier than that, despite a bad record while in prison, Philadelphia Police Officer Patrick McDonald would have gone home to his wife that fateful day, rather than being killed. Had then-District Attorney Lynne Abraham treated the drug violations of Lewis Jordan seriously, rather than offering him a ‘treatment program’ and record expungement, he would have been locked up on the day he murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Charles Cassidy during a botched armed robbery.

Instead of locking up criminals, Mr Sanders would attack the First Amendment rights of the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens . . . and his ‘Gun Safety’ program isn’t even the worst among the Democratic candidates.

He would release more convicted criminals from jail, and try to have fewer criminals sentenced to incarceration, even though strict law enforcement would have prevented some of the mass shootings and killings of police officers in the past. He would attack the rights of the law-abiding, while going soft on those who are criminals.

Sadly, he’s pretty much going right along with the other Democratic candidates; not a single one of them can be trusted with our safety.

White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow: ‘There’s No Recession on the Horizon.’ But a 2020 Dreamer Disagrees

Westlake Legal Group us-dollars-84594_1280-620x413 White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow: ‘There’s No Recession on the Horizon.’ But a 2020 Dreamer Disagrees Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

Bill Maher has said more than once that a recession would totally be worth it in order to evict the current White House resident (here), but Trump economic advisor Larry Kudlow made his opinion clear on Fox News Sunday: There’s nothing of the sort awaiting.

Guest host Dana Periono asked Larry about the President’s actions to prevent the Big One, particularly given that short-term Treasury bonds dropped below that of longer-term bonds last week. Such a tank can foreshadow recession; in fact, the fall caused 2019’s  worst single-day loss for stocks so far.

But Mr. Kudlow said The Donald’s doings are motoring things right along:

“The Trump pro-growth program, which I believe has been succeeding, we’re going to stay with that.”

And, to put it bluntly, the notion of a recession’s hogwash:

“There’s no recession on the horizon. What’s wrong with a little optimism?”

Larry was a busy man Sunday — he also guested on NBC’s Meet the Press, where Chuck Todd called him on the carpet a bit.

The host pointed out that Larry was similarly confident in 2017, just before the Great Recession — Larry fouled up.

And he fessed up:

“I plead guilty to that.”

But he still believes we’re fine.

Pete Buttigieg, for what it’s worth, disagrees. He told CNN’s State of the Union as much:

“We’ve got an economy not working for most Americans. … Most Americans can’t get ahead. … And the President had made it abundantly clear he doesn’t care.”

#ThingsCandidatesSay

Pete claimed we’re “probably” on the cusp of an economic descent.

Maybe Bill Maher will get his wish after all.

Then again, Buttigieg may not have the best judgement — just ask Black Lives Matter.

Crazy: A Women Rushes to the Hospital for Kidney Stones. One Goes in, Four Come Out

Westlake Legal Group easter-2144595_1280-620x411 Crazy: A Women Rushes to the Hospital for Kidney Stones. One Goes in, Four Come Out Uncategorized triplets South Dakota rapid city medicine healthcare Health Front Page Stories dannette glitz childbirth babies austin glitz Allow Media Exception

 

 

Ever think you have kidney stones and then surprisingly end up expelling other human beings out of an orifice?

It happened to a woman in South Dakota.

Dannette Giltz had had kidney stones previously — she should know the feeling. So on August 10th, she was rushed to the hospital for more of that same ol’ kidney stone crampin’.

But the medical masters told her: Those aren’t stones, lady; they’re people.”

She was in labor.

She didn’t even know she was pregnant.

What’s more — she’d actually had a baby before, too.

Twice.

Still, nothing had rung a bell. Just memories of the stones.

But doctors told her to expect twins.

One came out, and within 4 minutes, there was another.

She started thinking about names.

But POW! A third popped out within another 4 mins.

It was Surprisebabies on Parade.

She and her husband, Austin, named the kidney st– I mean, children…Blaze, Gypsy, and Nikki. Two chicks and a dude.

Each rugrat weighed just 4 pounds.

Lotsa 4’s in this story..

Dannette and Austin — who’ve been married for 12 years (a multiple of 4)– hadn’t planned to have any more kids.

Austin told Rapid City’s KOTA TV, “Once we left the hospital, she’s out of the hospital, I know she’s okay. I’m overwhelmed, honestly. It’s still exploding in my head.”

Dannette still can’t figure out how she was 34-weeks knocked-up without knowing. And the trio’d troop was a particular shock, given that she’d received no outside help:

“You don’t ever see triplets being conceived naturally, let alone going 34 weeks without knowing. So, everyone’s like I can’t believe it, I’m like we’re still in shock, trust me, we know what you mean like I go to the doctor’s thinking I’ll have surgery for kidney stones and end up going into labor with a c-section that night. It’s crazy.”

Yes. It is.

According to the new mommy, the family’s received a ton of support, from both friends and strangers:

“It’s amazing in a small town how many people will come together for stuff that’s not expected.”

You know what’s really unexpected? A woman having two ladies and a gentleman inside her without realizing it.

I guess sometimes you don’t know if you’re dealing with a kid or kid(ney).

A little wordplay there. That’s what I’m here 4.

RedState’s Water Cooler – August 18, 2019 – Open Thread – “The Hardest Day”

On this date in 1940, the Battle of Britain was approaching its height. The German Luftwaffe had yet to shift from its strategy of bombing the Royal Air Force’s airfields toward London in what would come to be known as The Blitz.

As a result, massive dogfights occurred nearly every day over the south of England and today one of the most difficult, and bloodiest, days of the entire conflict took place.

Five days before, German forces had launched what was called Adlertag, or “Eagle Day”, what was until that time the largest effort made to destroy the Royal Air Force in the air. The entire objective, of course, was to deny England control of its airspace so the Germans could launch Operation Sea Lion, which was the code name for the invasion of the British Isles.

The RAF gave much better than they got in the air that day, destroying 48 German fighters for the loss of 13 of their own. However, RAF planes destroyed on the ground evened the score. As such, the Germans, who used Adlertag as the opening day of a larger offensive called Unternehmen Adlerangriff (“Operation Eagle Attack”), would have to find another way to achieve their objective.

Five days later, the Germans were back again.

They based their attack on a rather remarkable failure of intelligence. The Germans had estimated the RAF was down to less than 300 serviceable aircraft. In fact, the number was 855, with another 289 either under repair or in storage, and so when the Germans of Luftflotte 2 launched their attack on the southeast airfields, the British defense had some real teeth to it.

The first blow fell on RAF Group 11, commanded by a man who would eventually become Sir Keith Park KBE. Airfields at Biggin Hill and Kenley were among the first to come under attack from German KG (bomber geschwader, or squadrons.) The British had plenty of early warning from radar that German forces were forming up over Calais and were ready to greet them in force.

The British, too, were operating with flawed intelligence. The Germans sent 108 fighters and 150 escorting fighters over England, but the British thought about 350 aircraft were headed their way. This led to some of the largest air battles ever recorded to that time.

That started a wild day of combat in which the Germans lost 69 aircraft and the British 68, again many being casualties on the ground. The losses on both sides were so severe that the day soon earned the sobriquet of “The Hardest Day” in subsequent histories of the battle.

The greatest casualty to the British, however, wasn’t any single airplane, but rather their advanced radar station at Poling, which was a key to the entire defense of the south coast. A patchwork of other radar stations helped ease the pressure on the early warning system until Poling could be repaired, but 28 servicemen were killed in the raids as well.

That started another battle, that of propaganda. Instead of admitting the loss of nearly a quarter of its attacking force, the Germans only admitted to 36 aircraft lost, slightly more than half the actual total. Meanwhile, the British claimed they had destroyed 150 German attackers, which was over twice the actual total.

On the other side, the British admitted 23 losses, about a third of their actual total, while the Germans claimed 147 British aircraft destroyed, over twice the actual number lost.

While this was not uncommon in wartime, it did serve to illustrate the need for propaganda to convince the home fronts in both nations that the air war was going well.

It wasn’t until a month later — on September 15, 1940, the date known as “Battle of Britain Day” in England, that the Germans would lose an additional 56 aircraft in exchange for 28 British fighters. The next day, the Germans changed their tactics and began bombing London.

On that September day, the legendary British fighter pilot Ray Holmes was rousted out of his bath to scramble to fight attacking German aircraft. He saved Buckingham Palace from being bombed by ramming a German bomber after running out of ammunition. He went down wearing the robe he threw on when scrambled, and survived. As he was being taken to Chelsea Barracks, he was approached by a major who asked him, “Excuse me, old boy, but do you always fly dressed like that?”

Happy Sunday and enjoy today’s open thread!

Excuse me while I get out a violin and play a melancholy song for Israel’s recent decision disallowing Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to enter their country.  Both were scheduled to visit Hebron, Ramallah, Bethlehem, and East Jerusalem in a trip co-sponsored by a Palestinian organization called Miftah (more on them in a second).  Israeli Prime Minister is simply enforcing a law that bars entry to anyone supportive of the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) movement.

The Democrats are great at pointing out people with whom President Trump associated in his past, or take his statements out of context but seem blind when it comes to this gruesome twosome.  Since 2015, Tlaib has been heavily invested in the Palestinian “cause” when in that year a terrorist who was to be deported gained the support of Tlaib.  She has criticized other politicians for appearing in photos with Netanyahu, joined social media groups which laud Palestinian terrorists or claimed the Holocaust was exaggerated and asserted Israel has no right to exist.  She is very active in support of the BDS movement, even co-sponsoring legislation in its favor.  She has also appeared in photos with supporters of terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah.

Omar is no better as her support for disreputable people and apparent support or sympathy for terrorist acts and organizations goes back further than Tlaib’s to 2012.  She has made statements supportive of Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, and al-Shabbab.  She has characterized Israel as anything but a democracy and associated with activists and pundits who have referred to Israel as “the Jewish ISIS” and equated members of Hamas with victims of the Holocaust.  Besides the support of the BDS movement in Congress and while in Minnesota politics she was one of few votes against banning genital mutilation in that state.

The group that was co-sponsoring the trip- Miftah- is no different.  They refer to the creation of Israel in 1948 as “al-Nakba,” or “the catastrophe.”  They regularly characterize Palestinian terrorists as “freedom fighters” and “activists.”  In short, they are supporters of terrorism against Israel.

Many editorials criticizing the decision to bar their entry to Israel say it would better if they went so they can see first hand that their views of Israel and the treatment of Palestinians there is wrong or misguided.  No amount of exposure, convincing, or dialogue is going to change the minds of these people.  Their hatred of Israel is too deep.  The same people critical of Israel’s decision to ban their entry are the same people who support harassment of Trump and others with whom they disagree from public appearances, or even eating peacefully in a restaurant.

So was Netanyahu right to enforce the law against Tlaib and Omar?  Others have been denied entry based on their political views, particularly with respect to the BDS movement.  For example, Simone Zimmerman, founder of “anti-occupation” IfNotNow, BDS advocate Ariel Gold and journalist Peter Beinart.  Hence, Omar and Tlaib are not alone in being banned from travel in Israel.  What sets them apart is they are currently members of Congress.

Perhaps if they acted like members of Congress and did not giggle and dismiss the horror of 9/11, there would be more sympathy for them.  Perhaps if they did not refer to the President as “the motherf******” there may be more sympathy for them.  However, they seem more concerned with events with which they have absolutely no control over half a world away than they have concern for their own constituents.  They hide behind their titles of sitting members of Congress when they are, in fact, simply activists for Palestinians and, in Omar’s case, other Islamic terrorist groups.

Before they attempt to solve alleged problems in Israel, they should worry about and work towards solving problems domestically.  Netanyahu is not afraid of two inconsequential members of Congress witnessing the “truth of Palestinian oppression” at the hands of Israel.  He is correctly thwarting the possibility of fanning the flames of violence in a population prone to terrorist violence and incapable of governing themselves.  They, if allowed into Israel or the West Bank, are going to see what they want to see and hear because they are blinded by their hatred of Israel.  They were not going there as open-minded fact-finders.

Maybe they should go to Gaza instead and see for themselves what a Palestinian state looks like.  Given the history of these two boobs, they would likely call it Utopia.
