Judge Jeanine Pirro has been under fire from the left for the last few days after she aired a segment criticizing the anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
Her critics are calling the segment, “Islamophobic.” It’s amazing, Pirro delivers a monologue blasting a Democrat for being anti-Semitic and anti-American, and what the media takes away from it is, ‘she’s anti-Muslim.’
No. Pirro’s point is not that Ilhan Omar is anti-American because she is Muslim. Pirro’s point is that Omar is anti-American and she happens to believe some of the most radical aspects of Islam. For example, Omar seems to believe that Jews are evil and that they are the driving force behind evil on our planet. That’s called anti-Semitism, and most moderate Muslims don’t agree with her. However, al-Qaeda agrees. The Taliban agrees. The PLO, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Revolutionary Guard, and the Iranian mullahs all agree with Omar.
Watch the segment that has Pirro under attack.
Judge Jeanine Pirro: So let me get this straight, she and her family flee war-torn Somalia where 500,000 are killed during a Civil War then sent to a refugee camp in Kenya for four years. They are then resettled by our government in Virginia to enjoy the cornucopia of rights, privileges, and benefits the United States offers.
The “she” is Congresswoman Ilhan Omar who represents Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District in Congress only about two months, but she’s gotten attention far beyond Washington for her anti-Semitism.
But as early as 2012, she tweeted quote, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” Now after an uproar in her home state, she apologized pledging to learn more about anti-Semitism. Apparently, she did not.
Once in Congress, she continued with her hate-filled anti-Semitic, anti- Israel tropes first in defending the BDS or Boycott Divest and Sanction Movement calling for the boycott of events in Israel and even for the eradication of Israel because of their so-called oppression of Palestine.
Shortly thereafter, she tweets, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” The Benjamins, of course, a clear reference to the hundred dollar bill. Shortly after that, she continues her hate-filled rants accusing another Democratic congresswoman of having a dual loyalty pledging allegiance to Israel.
She is clever though responding with, quote, “I am told I am anti-American if I am not pro-Israel,” close quote. The House knew it had to take action and after a week of chaos on the part of House members trying to figure out if Omar should be reprimanded, identified by name as well as removed from the powerful Foreign Relations Committee, Speaker Pelosi comes out with a watered down dumb disappointing resolution that neither condemns Omar nor mentions her name. A simple “we shouldn’t hate each other.”
Nancy, she speaks perfect English. She graduated from a college in the United States. You say, she doesn’t understand the words? Are you saying she’s stupid? That she doesn’t understand? Then what the hell is she doing on the prestigious Foreign Relations Committee?
She speaks fluently using tropes which are figurative and metaphorical, understanding that those words create powerful images and verbal ironies. She is far from stupid. She is clear and pointed in her hatred. Her comments only critical of Jews in Israel; not Italy, not Morocco, not North Korea — Israel.
Now the fact that you didn’t have the backbone grit or gumption to draft a resolution that included her name tells me you are the stupid one and if you don’t understand, let me explain.
Omar got you and all your pals to draft a watered-down resolution with a message we all learned in first grade, “Don’t hate anybody.” Really? That took you bozos a week in the House and yet you were so quick to admonish a white male Republican Congressmen accused of hate too and strip him of his committee assignments.
She then goes on to accuse respected members of Congress who support Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East of dual loyalty. What she’s doing Nancy is starting a movement to shut down pro-Israel speech making it politically incorrect. So when she comes up with her pro-Palestinian agenda, the pro Israel’s are reticent to speak because she’s already proven that the Dems will not punish her and talk about chutzpah, she takes a victory lap and in an unrepentant and unchastised tweet takes credit by saying quote, “Our nation is having a difficult conversation, but we believe this is great progress.”
But she continues her disdain and contempt for Israel, America’s chief ally, ignoring how Israel has assisted us advancing our interest in the Middle East preventing victories by radical nationalist movements, as well as assisting us in intelligence gathering.
She then goes on to slam Barack Obama saying he is just another pretty face who got away with murder caging kids and droning people in the Middle East, but she adds, he is a bit more polished.
My question, why the disdain for the government of the country that saved you and your family after you lived in a tent in Kenya for four years? Why the scorn? And as the Democrats scramble to forgive, rationalize and give a pass to a freshman in Congress, the joke is on you, Nancy. You’ve appeased rising anti-Semitism inside the Democratic Party.
Let me say that again, you and the whole gang running for President in the Democratic primary in 2020 have appeased the rise of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. The sad part is that all this is contrary to the tenets of your party, which is so receptive to the LGBTQ community, illegal immigrants, refugees and on and on.
This is not who your party is. Your party is not anti-Israel. She is.
Think about this, she’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democratic Party, so if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab which according to Quran 33:59 tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?
I don’t have to tell you, Nancy. Jews have been persecuted almost from the beginning of time when they were forced out of Egypt to the six million killed in the Holocaust and now, we are witnessing the rise of anti- Semitism in Europe where incidents are up 74% in the last year alone in France, where Jewish cemeteries are regularly desecrated with swastikas and people relay the common tropes of Jews with too much money and influence.
We all know how it starts. It starts that way. Hate is hate. Hate leads to violence and violence leads to retaliation, which then leads to unrest and worse.
Yes, Nancy, it’s all about hating Israel to promote the cause of Palestine.
President Trump was right when he said the Democratic Party is now the anti-Israel party and don’t forget, Nancy, history has proven over and over, when you appease anti-Semitic sentiment, the worst happens and in your case, Nancy, the danger for you is that you’re appeasing this behavior will lead to your removal as Speaker and the Democrats, now controlled by socialists and anti-Semites will lose the presidency in 2020.
