There’s A Civil War Brewing In The Democrat Party

The Republicans love this.

While the legacy media have directed their laser-like focus toward the Republican Party’s “civil war,” they have ignored a deeper division brewing within the Democratic Party regarding the balkanization between more traditional Democrats and a hard-Left hellbent on condemning Israel as a racist, colonial oppressor.

While the progressive intifada against the party’s reliably liberal leadership spans beyond the Middle East, tensions on the Left have steadily escalated in tandem with military action between Israel and Hamas.

President Joe Biden commented Wednesday that “Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory.”

That unremarkable statement immediately summoned the Squad — and its members exhibited remarkable message discipline. All sought to push the administration into condemning Israeli retaliation against Hamas’ rocket volleys.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) immediately tweeted that “blanket statements” like Biden’s “dehumanize Palestinians & imply the US will look the other way at human rights violations. It’s wrong.”

“This is not neutral language,” she said. “It takes a side — the side of occupation.”

She renewed her call on the House floor Thursday, thundering, “The president and many other figures this week stated that Israel has a right to self-defense … But do Palestinians have a right to survive?”

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tweeted that “Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism.” Yet she called the well-established reality of terrorists using civilians as human shields — recognized as a war crime under international law — a “myth.”

Her tweet obliquely criticized the Biden administration: “It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid,” she said.

Failing to criticize Israel puts America’s moral capital in jeopardy, Omar tweeted. “Many will tell you Israel has a right to defend itself, to safety and security, but are silent on whether Palestinians have those rights too. Until we can defend the rights of Palestinians just as we do Israelis, we have no leg to stand on when it comes to justice or peace.”

The administration has gingerly refuted her statements. State Department spokesman Ned Price explained that Omar’s allegation of Israeli “ethnic cleansing” in Sheikh Jarrah are “not something that our analysis supports.”

But dozens on the Left piled on. “We cannot just condemn rockets fired by Hamas and ignore Israel’s state-sanctioned police violence against Palestinians — including unlawful evictions, violent attacks on protesters & the murder of Palestinian children,” tweeted Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI).

In total, 25 members of Congress signed a letter demanding the White House send “the strongest possible diplomatic message to Israel.” The effort was spearheaded by Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL), whom progressives sent to primary the staunchly pro-Israel, pro-life Democrat Dan Lipinski (another uncovered front in the Democratic Party’s civil war).

When former presidential hopeful turned New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang announced, “I’m standing with the people of Israel,” the party’s left-wing responded with profanity-laced outrage. Human rights activist Ajamu Baraka accused Yang of being “a white supremacist.”

Glenn Greenwald, a civil libertarian journalist who co-founded The Intercept, tweeted: “The full-on attack from a dozen or more Democratic members of Congress on [President Joe] Biden and [Secretary of State Anthony] Blinken for supporting the Israelis in Gaza is an infinitely more important intra-party dispute than the Liz Cheney drama.”

Important but politically unhelpful news continues to go unreported by the legacy media. Despite covering the expulsion of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from House leadership incessantly, CNN and MSNBC had little to say about the Left’s destructive rivalry over the Middle East. MSNBC hosts occasionally repeated Ocasio-Cortez’s comments throughout the day on Wednesday. The only story CNN posted on its website stated simply that President Biden showed “little willingness to bend to liberal Democrats” (as though Biden were not a liberal Democrat himself).

Their coverage could hardly contrast more with their wall-to-wall reporting on the GOP’s inside-the-Beltway hostilities. CNN and MSNBC repeatedly noted that Donald Trump has supported Cheney’s primary opponent (as have most of her constituents). But they have ignored the fact that the House’s growing caucus of Democratic Socialists rose to power by deposing more moderate — and more pro-Israel — Democrats, including Joe Crowley (Rep. Ocasio-Cortez), Eliot Engel (Rep. Jamaal Bowman), and Lacy Clay Jr. (Rep. Cori Bush). The networks also fail to report that the Squad-led Left threatens to roll over as many safe Democratic districts as it can. And its members are now fulfilling their promise to “push” the White House as far to the Left as possible.

The networks calling for even-handed responses to Middle Eastern wars might begin by showing even-handed coverage of the two parties’ political wars.

  1. GOOD DEAL, then let it happen, CIVIL WAR between the demo-communist and the democommunist, they will eat their own, they are their own worst enemy.

  2. I can only pray they devour each other and HATE each other.
    Even the lions eat their own if they are not of their seed!
    I pray they leave us a few stragglers to take care of when the dust settles, so we can have some fun, throwing them in jail, or out of office. With GREAT STRENGTH!

  3. Why has nobody compared the firing of Palestinian ( Iran) rockets into civilian targets to Hitler’s V1 and V2 rockets likewise aimed at innocent civilians of London ? He was also trying to terrorize innocent civilians.

  4. Hamas is a Terrorist Organization,that’s all they are. They kill innocent people. At least when Israel strikes they warn the terrorist it’s coming and anybody that doesn’t want to get hurt ad enough time to get out of harms way. Any U.S..citizen who support’s terrorist Hamas B.L.M. should lose there U.S..citizenship!

  5. I can see where one of them is going to kill some of the others in their own party and soon!

  6. Depend’s on who the instigator is or who started the fight? I Believe we as AMERICAN’S will always protect Isreal the Godley Country Because it say’s to in the Bible.

  7. Let them eat… one half will eat the other half. Then get sick and die. Problem solved without getting American(Christian)/Israely(Jewish) hands dirty. Gotta love it when a plan comes together.
