Alan Dershowitz said Saturday on Fox & Friends that Democrats on the extreme left are "tolerating anti-Semitism" to avoid being alienated by their base.
His remarks come after Minnesota Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar seemed to reverse her stance on the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
During a forum in August, Omar said that she supports a two-state solution to the IsraeliPalestinian conflict, saying that it's important to "recognize Israels place in the Middle East and the Jewish peoples rightful place within that region."
However, Omar's campaign told the blog Muslim Girl that she "believes in and supports the BDS movement," though she has reservations about its effectiveness.

Dershowitz said on Saturday that Omar's change in opinion shows that the hard-left of the Democratic Party "are tolerating anti-Semitism."
"They don't want to alienate that part of their base," the Harvard Law professor emeritus said.
According to Muslim Girl, Omar's campaign acknowledged that the newly elected congresswoman voted against an anti-BDS bill in Minnesota.
Dershowitz added that Omar has gone "over the line to anti-Semitism," noting that in 2012, she tweeted that Israel, a U.S. ally, "has hypnotized the world" and also called it an "apartheid" regime.

They don’t define anti-semitism as Muslim hatred of Israel. They define it as white neo-Nazi hatred of individual Jews. Anything Muslims think is immediately excused due to “The Plight of the Palestinians.”
Virtue signaling convinces the left of its own unimpeachable morals. When push comes to shove, it rejects guilt for any of its wrongdoing and attributes such allegations to conspiracy theories.
Peter Daou, a Democratic strategist and former advisor to Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, tweeted on Monday that Ford will be "attacked, smeared, and demonized" and that people must "BELIEVE WOMEN."

With all the Feminists having Gorbasms over Linda Sour, it’s VERY CLEAR that they’re MUCH HAPPIER having their private parts mutilated, than living in a country that respects its Constitution.
As you can tell from this clip, there was NOT a required 2/3 majority voice vote. It seemed like a 50/50 split.
Antonio Villaraigosa, the convention chairman, ultimately asked for the voice vote three times. As one report note, even though the nos were again as loud if not louder than the ayes on the third vote, Villaraigosa said he had determined that two thirds of those present had voted in favor. Boos filled the arena in response.
Far left wing...yea right.
Just par of the democrat catch22 course.
We support jews and American Indians, but there is a catch, we also support Nazi Mexican illegals and islamists...
The movie Catch22 is another case of liberal army of diversity projectio
In other words, they’re political whores.
In 1948, Harry Truman split his party in three, standing up to both the klu-klan-ers on one side under Strom Thurmond, and the ‘progressives’ on the other under Henry Wallace. Despite all the polls and papers favoring Dewey, he won big. That’s what you get if you stand for principle. Ironically, his whistle stop campaign resembled Trump’s rallies. Back then the Democrats had men among them. Now they’re all just male whores.
