The Squad strikes again
Anti-Semitic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, D-Michigan, is not happy blaming only Jews for the world's problems. When murders targeting Jews were committed last week in Jersey City, New Jersey, she blamed white supremacists.
Four people were killed, including a police officer, in the attack.
"This is heartbreaking," Tlaib, a member of the notorious group of four Democratic congresswomen who call themselves The Squad, tweeted. "White supremacy kills."
However, the perpetrators in the attack had been identified a day earlier, and both were black nationalists. Police said they also found online anti-Semitic posts written by the suspects and a manifesto in their car.
Tlaib deleted her tweet not long after she wrote it but spread her beliefs.
"It's telling, and frankly sick, that Tlaib tweeted out sympathies for the Jews that were murdered, blaming it on white supremacists," tweeted journalist Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll. "Didn't care enough to find out what happened. Just enough to use dead Jews for her political agenda."
To date, she has not has issued an apology for her incorrect accusations.
Green(field) with PAC money
Theresa Greenfield, a Democrat who is hoping to earn her party's nomination to oppose first-term U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, has said a tenet of her "Putting People First" campaign is not taking corporate political action committee (PAC) donations.
"I hear about getting big money out of politics," she said. "The corruption, the influence of corporations, the outsizedness of special interest. Regular everyday Iowans, they just think it's not fair. And you're right, it's not fair. I have taken a pledge to not accept any corporate PAC donations for this race."
Greenfield may claim she is technically following what she said, but the nonprofit Open Secrets recently revealed the Democratic leadership PAC has poured $186,000 into her race. And much of that PAC money is corporate donations from the likes of General Dynamics, Honeywell International, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, all defense contractors.
The Ernst campaign took the campaign to task, noting it had found "deceptive ways" to break her pledge, while Iowa GOP Chairman Jeff Kaufman said the pledge is not her only problem.
"It's clear Greenfield is terrified of taking questions from Iowans," he told Breitbart News. "Not only has she still not held a single town hall, but now her staff is aggressively shutting down questions.
"If she truly thinks she can stand up for Iowans in the U.S. Senate, she'll have to get a backbone and make herself accessible to voters."
Feeling the (Christmas) Bern
Hoping to recapture the 2016 magic of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, who won a majority of votes in the county of Washtenaw, Michigan, in that year's Democratic presidential primary, a group of his supporters went caroling in Ann Arbor recently, armed with their versions of several Christmas favorites.
The "Bernie Carols" were re-written by Lauren Sargent to reflect the candidate's far left agenda, though the group was not officially affiliated with the senator's campaign.
Among its greatest hits were "O Medicare" ("O Christmas Tree"), "Green New Deal" ("We Three Kings") and one about Sanders' first day in office ("The 12 Days of Christmas").
"O Medicare" included the lyric, "O Medicare, O Medicare, let's make it universal. Expand to cover [unintelligible]. Prescription drugs that cost so dear. O Medicare, O Medicare, updated to be useful."
"Green New Deal" opened with the words "Build the future, heed the call."
The 12 days of Bernie song, instead of drummers drumming, lords a-leaping, swans a-swimming and so on, featured: "On his first day in office, Bern Sanders said to me, fix the housing crisis, honor our veterans, free and fair elections, fair trade and unions, save Social Security, millionaires pay up now, debt cancellation, end endless wars, tuition-free public college, Green New Deal, Medicare for All for financier and chief I will be."
Puts you right in the Christmas spirit, doesn't it?
A magical Christmas
And speaking of the Christmas spirit, the pro-abortion group Texas Equal Time Fund wanted to honor its volunteers with a little something for their efforts this year. So the lucky volunteers will be going home with tall votive candles emblazoned with the words, in various colors, "Abortions Are Magical."
Shown along with the words is the shape of an assumedly magical unicorn.
In a post, the organization wrote, "Abortions are magical for most people who have them and refuting that just increases stigma around abortion. They are health care, self care, and community care."
In response, Lila Rose, president of Live Action, told the Daily Caller News Foundation, "Abortion is not 'magical,' abortion is murder. Abortion is the violent destruction of a defenseless human child by ripping apart, poisoning, or suctioning them to death."
