Trump forces democrats to embrace the "Squad" as they liken Israel to Nazi Germany

Trump shoots, he scores.

Trump unloaded on the "Squad" the other day and it galvanized democrats who ran to the defense of the four America hating Congresswomen- even the ones who don't particularly like them:

It takes no small amount of skill to get, say, the centrist co-chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus, Rep. Josh Gottheimer, rising in defense of his four progressive Democratic colleagues who comprise “the Squad.” But our president has a way with words. Over the course of a weekend, the political conversation shifted from whether the House Democratic majority was collapsing from the inside to whether Republicans will speak up against their president’s latest tirade. Statements from Republican members of Congress about the president’s remarks only began trickling out Monday morning, and additional members will be asked whether they consider Trump’s tweets racist when Congress returns for the week. And, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her colleagues Monday morning, the chamber will also be voting on a resolution condemning them. While a resolution condemning tweets is, as a legislative mechanism, exactly as toothless as “a resolution condemning tweets” sounds, it will give Democrats an opportunity to put Republicans on the record either for or against their party leader’s most recent thumbed outburst.

Nancy Pelosi, the newly recognized racist, has a big problem on her hands. The DNC has a civil war brewing.
Pelosi refused to respond directly to Ocasio-Cortez’s accusation at a Thursday news conference but said she had to speak out to defend her moderate members after Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide accused them of racist actions.

‘Our members took offense at that. I addressed that. How they’re interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them, but I’m not going to be discussing it any further,’’ Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters.

Saikat Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, referred to moderate Democratic groups in a tweet last month as ‘‘New Southern Democrats’’ who are ‘‘hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the ’40s.’’

The aide later deleted the tweet but posted other tweets saying the moderates’ actions — in this case, to pass a compromise border spending bill — ‘‘still enable a racist system.’’

The tweet has emerged as a key flash point in a simmering feud between Pelosi and ‘‘the Squad’’ — freshman Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ocasio-Cortez of New York — one that burst into a full boil this week after simmering for months when Pelosi told The New York Times that the four ‘‘didn’t have any following,’’ citing their lonely votes last month against a Democratic-crafted bill to address the southern border crisis.

This left the door open for Trump, who came to Pelosi's defense:

President Donald Trump, in a surprising turn, defended Democrat Nancy Pelosi amid her dispute with Rep. Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez and other freshman Democrats, saying the House speaker "is not a racist."

"I'll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do, she is not a racist. OK? She is not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace," Trump said while speaking to reporters before departing on Marine One.

Then the "Jihad Squad" sprang into action to once again prove Trump right. Ilhan Omar introduced a resolution supportive of Israel BDS and likened Israel to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union:

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

Omar’s resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish. While the resolution doesn’t explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state.

“We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our First Amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” Omar told Al-Monitor.

“And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement,” she added.

The resolution attracted some Republican detractors, with Rep. Lee Zeldin slamming Omar for introducing it, saying she brought “her hateful twist” by propping up the BDS movement.

“Israel is our best ally in the Mid East; a beacon of hope, freedom & liberty, surrounded by existential threats,” Zeldin wrote in a tweet. “Shame on Rep Omar for bringing her hateful twist on that reality to House Foreign today, propping up the BDS movement & blaming Israel for all of its challenges.”

Under the guise of free speech, you see:

“likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.”

Ha ha. Right. I’m sure Netanyahu will let them in for that!

Trump has taken the lessons of Sun Tzu, von Clausewitz and (gasp!) Alinsky to reduce the Democratic Party figuratively to confetti and smaller pieces. Grandmaster-level political chess indeed.

I feel that this entire situation is resulting on a moment like the big reveal in a movie that the person you thought was a fool is really the mastermind behind everything. All these dems are coming out and saying that Trump orchestrated this who situation, manipulated them into having no choice but to pledge allegiance to the craziest of the crazies and they are facing the truth: he really does play 4-D chess.

Likely now they are rweinding the movie of the Trump presidency now that they know the big reveal and looking for things that they thought were Trump being dumb and getting out of luckily and saying "oh wow, he actually did that on purpose too and we fell for it".

And now knowing that Trump has been simply toying with them all along, they are probably starting to panic over their political futures.

"BDS stands for Boycott of, Divestment from, and Sanctions against Israel. At its historical core and present day usage, BDS is both anti-Israel and anti-Jewish.

"Following decades of conventional military attacks, terrorism, tunnels, kidnappings, suicide bombings, missiles, and murders, BDS is just one more tool being used by the Arab/Muslim world in its continuing war against Israel."
