Democrats Are In Trouble
There is a terrific article over at The American Thinker, by Richard Baehr that is a must-read. It addresses the sad fact that anti-Semites appear to be welcome in the Democratic party. Who can deny that after the John Conyers mock Judiciary Committee hearing giving a platform to the conspiracy theories of known anti-Semite Ray McGovern? What about the corresponding anti-Semitic pamphlets being handed out at the DNC headquarters at the same time? The following paragraph eloquently lays it out.
But when the Democratic Party sponsors what amounts to a festival full of anti-Semitic hysteria and Israel bashing at its own headquarters, and invites anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists in to address members of their Congressional delegation, then I think that the line of basic support for Israel has been crossed. Arguably, when former President Jimmy Carter invited filmmaker and Israel hater Michael Moore to share his Presidential box at the 2004 Democratic convention, the line had already been crossed. Or maybe it was crossed when the entire Democratic establishment treated Jew-baiter Al Sharpton as a serious Presidential candidate and respected member of the Party in 2004. Now, there can be little doubt.
If the democrats have any hope of taking back the White House or even one of the Congressional Houses, this isn't a great way to go about it. The moderates need to come forward and reclaim the party.
