Here’s a good rule of thumb for Democrats:
When you’ve lost Rahm Emanuel, there’s a good chance your political career is over.
From The Washington Times:
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel penned a column Thursday slamming Rep. Ilhan Omar for perpetuating anti-Semitic tropes and “casting Jewish Americans as the other.”
Mr. Emanuel, Chicago’s first Jewish mayor who previously served as President Obama’s chief of staff, accused Mrs. Omar of promoting “very old canards” that have been “unleashed by anti-Semites throughout history.”
“No one is questioning the right of members of Congress and others to criticize Israeli policies,” he wrote in a column for The Atlantic. “But Omar is crossing a line that should not be crossed in political discourse. Her remarks are not anti-Israel; they are anti-Semitic.”
Democrats are at odds with each other as Mrs. Omar stands accused of perpetuating the anti-Semitic “dual loyalty” trope in comments she made last week about Israel-supporting lawmakers holding “allegiance to a foreign country.”
House Democrats have delayed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism — an indirect rebuke of Mrs. Omar’s comments — after freshman Democrats complained that it should be broadened to condemn all forms of bigotry. …
Many Democrats, however, are rushing to defend Rep. Omar and her anti-Semitism.
Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris think she’s a hero.
James Clyburn thinks she’s being persecuted just like Jews were during the Holocaust (seriously?!).
And Omar’s BFF, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Stalin, is accusing her accusers of “racism” (because, of course).
Rep. Omar should be forced out if she refuses to resign.
Will the Democrats have the courage to expel one of their own?
But anything can happen when you’ve lost Rahm Emanuel.
