Michael Moore Wants the Squad to Represent Democrats

Donald Trump isn’t the only one who wants to see the Democrat Party represented by the openly malevolent and broadly unpopular leftist lunatics comprising the Squad (i.e., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley). That’s what liberal icon Michael Moore wants too:

“Let’s hope that Alexandria and Rashida and Ilhan and Congresswoman Pressley are the face because that’s how we’re going to win,” Moore said to [former top anchor, national laughing stock, and current MSNBC] host Brian Williams. “We’re going to win with people who believe that climate change is real. We’re going to win by getting behind people who want to raise the minimum wage, who are going to fight for all these things that the American public wants. That’s ‘The Squad.’ They’re the force out there.”

Moore believes that these vociferously anti-American harpies have an appeal outside welfare-dependent urban fever swamps and faculty lounges.

“Well, first of all, Michigan has a long history, as does Wisconsin and Minnesota, the upper Midwest, of what you would call socialism or Democratic socialism…”

Elections used to present a choice between incremental Big Government bloat on two slightly different schedules. Now we face a stark choice between incremental Big Government bloat and whole hog socialism of the type that recently destroyed Venezuela.

Trump wants the Squad front and center because they are commies and Americans won’t vote for commies. Michael Moore wants them there because he thinks America has degenerated into a place where commies can get elected. If the latter is correct, we are screwed no matter who wins any given election.

Soycialists of America

In case you aren’t tired yet of laughing at the recent Atlanta National Convention of the Democratic Socialists of America, Paul Joseph Watson pokes some more fun. Considering that they are largely comprised of soy boys, maybe we should be calling them the Soycialists of America:

This outfit produced prominent Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib.

Democratic Socialists of America Highlights

You didn’t attend the recent Atlanta National Convention of the Democratic Socialists of America? Here is an example of what you missed:

Looks like the expression “guys” is forbidden as “gendered language.”

Careful not to burst into guffaws at these totalitarian snowflakes. That might trigger them.

The Democratic Socialists of America has produced the prominent congresscritters Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib.

More from Atlanta:

The laughs will stop after these kooks are in power, and the police we have now are replaced by their “marshalls.” That’s when triggering snowflakes will result in firing squads.

CNN Spins Pro-Israel Vote as Divisive

Despite heavy Jewish support for the Democrat Party and the leftist agenda over the years, it is becoming ideologically mandatory among moonbats to oppose the existence of Israel, because like South Africa in the 1980s and early 1990s, it represents an island of Western Civilization in a sea of politically preferable savagery. CNN dutifully climbs aboard by validating hostility with this slanted headline:

House Approves Resolution Opposing Israel Boycott Movement in Divisive Vote

The key word here is “divisive.”

When is a 398 to 17 landslide vote divisive? When the media opposes the outcome.

The vote was on a nonbinding resolution opposing the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions), which entails leftists erasing Israel from the map with the same tactics they used to destroy South Africa.

Islamomoonbat Squad members Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib unsurprisingly opposed the resolution. So did race-baiting “civil rights icon” John Lewis, who at least has the excuse of cluelessness; he apparently thinks Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election.

Minimum Wage Madness

They say you should not attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity. Maybe Democrats really do mean well by pushing for an ever-higher minimum wage, which sinks ever more businesses, puts ever more people out of a job, and makes it ever harder for young people to get their foot on the first step of the career ladder — thereby creating more government-dependent poor people who will vote for Democrats. Just in case they really don’t understand the effect of minimum wage, we’ll let John Stossel explain it for them:

Meanwhile, Rashida Tlaib, unhinged maniac and member of the influential Squad, confirms the obvious — the moment they jack the minimum wage up to $15, they will jack it higher still:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) has upped the ante in the fight for a higher minimum wage, telling attendees at a One Fair Wage event that the federal minimum wage should actually be $20 per hour, not $15 as is currently being pushed by the Democratic Party.

Tlaib justifies this lunacy on the grounds of rising prices. If only she understood that artificially inflating wages drives up more than unemployment; it also drives up inflation.

Or maybe she isn’t a moron and she does understand.

The very concept of minimum wage is tyrannical. The federal government has no right to dictate the terms of contracts between consenting adults. When Big Government coercively intrudes in economic matters, the only beneficiary is Big Government.

Democrats Blame Israel for Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

Islamocongresscritters Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib aren’t the only moonbats who have it in for Jews. Some will blame Jews for anything — even the Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting:

A draft resolution set to be debated this weekend at the California Democratic Party State Convention, obtained by Fox News, accuses the Israeli government of willfully “aligning with the virulent Islamophobia” of white supremacist groups in the U.S. — and links Israel indirectly to the Oct. 2018 massacre of 11 congregants at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

As a joke, this would be in very bad taste. But no joke is in as bad taste as progressive politics these days.

The relevance of this outrage against sanity is not limited to the California state party.

A total of 14 Democrat presidential contenders are set to descend on the San Francisco gathering at the Moscone Convention Center, including Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Bernie Sanders.

Don’t expect any of the presidential hopefuls to weigh in on whether the Jewish state deserves to be punished. They probably understand that this stuff scares away voters.

Some of the draft resolutions would mandate that Democrat officials work to “nullify” President Trump’s pro-Israel policies. One document directs party officials to take a subsidized trip to Israel only “if they undertake to devote an equal amount of time to visiting Palestinian towns, villages and refugee camps in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.”

Nancy Pelosi tried to stop Jacobins from making the Democratic Party the home of anti-Semitism. But she lost her showdown with Ilhan Omar.

AOC Says We’re Dumb for Taking Her Seriously

Rashida Tlaib is not the only Justice Democrat congresscritter to shoot herself in the foot recently by insulting the public while in damage control mode. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has attempted to justify her proposed $zillion Green New Deal power grab on the grounds that the world will end in 12 years if we don’t devote the nation to a radical if ineffectual gesture in defiance of the ever-changing climate. As usual, people responded to her earnest squeaks with guffaws. The mental defective responds in turn by saying we are the stupid ones for taking her seriously. Tweets AOC:

This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.

Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.

To be called dumb by AOC really stings. At least we will know better in the future than to take her seriously — or the United Nations either, since that is apparently where she got her 12-year prognostication of doom.

Earlier, however, AOC denounced Republicans for calling her 12 years to doom prediction a gaffe, on the grounds that there was a hurricane and therefore anthropogenic global warming ideology is true:

Hilariously, she also said this:

“We have twelve years left to cut emissions by at least 50 percent if not more,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but you’re grandkids will not, so understand that the internet documents everything.”

It sure does document everything: even vast things, like AOC’s idiocy.

Candidate Imtiaz Mohammad Denounces America

Earlier, Muslim immigrant and aspiring congresskook Imtiaz Mohammad helped explain why the Democrat Party has begun to embrace hatred of Jews. Here, he demonstrates that there is plenty of hatred left over for the main target of the Cultural Marxists infesting the country — namely, America itself:

Don’t be shy, Mohammad. Tell us what you really think of the country that foolishly welcomed you with open arms.

Despite his denunciation of the media, it will continue to promote him.

If Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib could get elected to rule over us, so could this fellow practitioner of hijrah. Expect the Dems to put him on a key committee straight off, like they did with Omar.

Muslims Are Hijacking Democrat Party

Confused as to why the Democrat Party has begun to embrace anti-Semitism, despite receiving over 75% of the Jewish vote and massive amounts of money from Jewish donors? Imtiaz Ahmad Mohammad helps us make sense of it. He is an immigrant from Pakistan who barely speaks English but who may be in Congress after the next election, passing laws on behalf of Islam that we will have to live under.

Keith Ellison, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib are only the beginning. With explosive reproduction rates and a 1,400-year history of rigid conformity or death, Muslims are the ultimate voting bloc. Also, the centuries-long war of annihilation it has waged against Western Civilization makes Islam second only to Cultural Marxism itself in fundamental hostility toward American society — which is why most Democrat constituencies are reflexively supportive of it. The more “refugees” flood into America, the more the Democrat Party will become the Islamic Party.

The Brains Behind AOC Part II: Zack Exley

Earlier, the esteemed countermoonbat Mr Reagan revealed that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not run for Congress but rather was run, that she is a puppet, and that the people controlling her are dangerous. He has continued digging and has learned more regarding the Jacobins behind stooge candidates like AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. Remember the name Zack Exley; this moonbat could inflict a great deal of damage on our country:

Why Democrats Can’t Primary Ilhan Omar

Ilhan Omar has humiliated Speaker Nancy Pelosi and has helped other maniacs like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib position the Democratic Party on the far side of the lunatic fringe, where votes are few outside inner cities. No doubt any rational people who have not yet walked away from the degenerating party wish they could unload this extraordinarily obnoxious Jew-baiting Islamomarxist. But that is easier said than done in Omar’s Minneapolis district, which is populated largely by Somali welfare colonists and mindlessly PC hipster millennials. It would be easy to find a vastly more qualified candidate to primary her, except that in this district, more qualified means more appealing to intersectional moonbats than an ultra-left woman of color Muslim refugee from Somalia. From The Hill:

“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it. There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her,” said state Sen. Ron Latz (D), who represents a portion of Omar’s district.

Here’s a possibility:

Minneapolis City Councilwoman [sic] Andrea Jenkins, the first openly transgender African-American woman elected to public office in the United States.

Any transsexual of politically preferred pigmentation has impressive qualifications for high office. However, Muslim tops transsexual in the Cultural Marxist caste system. Consequently,

Jenkins told The Hill on Wednesday [he] is not interested in running for Congress, and [he] backs Omar for reelection.

Jenkins says Omar has been “unfairly targeted” for shackling the Democrat Party to anti-Semitism.

Democrats could run Stalin himself and win in this district. Whoever wins the Democrat primary, wins the House seat. In turn, it appears that whoever gets the endorsement of the communist-infiltrated Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, wins the primary. That puts a Jacobin like Omar — who cannot be outflanked on her left — in the cat bird’s seat.

A similar situation may prevail at the national level, resulting in a Democrat presidential candidate no sane person would vote for. This is great news for Trump — unless the lunatic candidate wins. Then it is extremely bad news for all of us.

Ilhan Omar’s Junta Now Controls Democrat Party

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi used to be one of the most powerful people if not the most powerful person in the country. Then she came up against the Women of Color junta. The showdown was over whether the Democrat Party will adopt an anti-Semitic stance to comply with Islam. Pelosi was denounced as a white supremacist for objecting. She has rolled over to show her belly, having been utterly subjugated by her opponents. From Power Line:

The House of Representatives voted 407-23 in favor of the Democrats’ revised, anodyne resolution condemning all forms of bigotry. As Scott has noted, Nancy Pelosi retreated to this meaningless resolution because many House Democrats weighed in to support Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism. Faced with a rebellion in the ranks, Pelosi backed down. She now denies that the resolution had anything to do with Omar.

The patent absurdity of this lie makes it all the more humiliating that she was forced to tell it.

That is quite a change from the long-ago days (less than a month ago, actually) when Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer issued a statement saying, among other things, “Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive.” The Democratic Party leadership’s climbdown is complete: [yesterday], as predicted, Omar voted for the resolution that began life as a censure of her anti-Semitism.

Ilhan Omar and her maniacal allies (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, et al.) are now running the Democrat Party. Jews aren’t the only ones who should find this terrifying.

Pelosi Denounced as White Supremacist

The Frankenstein monster has turned on its creators. Now even Nancy Pelosi has been dehumanized as a “white supremacist” by Cultural Marxists:

Saira Rao, a “Justice Democrat” who ran for office in Colorado (and lost), has been active in supporting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) following an outcry over clearly anti-Semitic statements Omar made last week at an event for progressive activists.

Pelosi, the grownup in the room at this point, wants to distance the Dems from Omar’s anti-Semitism. But Omar’s fellow Jacobins are not having it.

“I am going to unfollow anyone who posts anything positive about Nancy Pelosi,” Rao tweeted. “Nancy Pelosi is a white feminist. White feminists are white supremacists. Nancy Pelosi is a white supremacist. And if you idolize Nancy Pelosi, you may as well declare allegiance to David Duke.”

She doubled down by accusing Democrats made uncomfortable by Omar’s anti-Semitism of “racism.”

Saira Rao is of course insane, but she is hardly alone in today’s Democrat Party.

The sentiment echoes a statement made earlier in the day by Women’s March founder, Linda Sarsour, who also accused Pelosi of being a “white feminist,” and suggested that the Speaker of the House was merely a tool of the “patriarchy.”

Even if Rao is not in power yet herself, others like her are.

[S]he was part of the “Justice Democrats” movement that got the “new generation” of Democratic leaders — people like Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — elected and is emblematic of the more progressive wing of the party which is struggling to take the reins from people like Pelosi.

They are winning. The measure intended to chastise Omar for being so noisy about hating Jews was scuttled in defiance of Speaker Pelosi, no doubt leaving Omar with an even smugger look on her face.

Caucasian Democrats should not be surprised at what is unfolding. According to the ideology they have wielded to achieve power, any trait shared with the core population that created America makes you bad. That prominently includes being white. No matter how vociferously white liberals hate their own race, they are still white and will be judged accordingly.

Only women of color are pure; everyone else is sexist or racist. When AOC, Ilhan Omar, Saira Rao, and the rest have destroyed their competition, the focus will tighten still further. Only Muslim women of color will avoid the guillotine, or maybe it will be only lesbians of color. From the French Revolution forward, leftist revolutions eat their own.

White Cultural Marxists like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden will soon find themselves unelectable per their own ideology. The irony is especially sweet regarding Biden, who crows with triumph that America will become a white minority country, but who will find his ambitions capped as Democrats become a white minority party.

A Caucasian has no more future in the Democrat Party than a Jew would have in the Nazi Party.

Ilhan Omar Proclaims Housing to Be a Right

What’s next, now that Kamala Harris has confirmed the fundamental right to demand free healthcare? Why not a right to free housing? Congressional Islamocommie Ilhan Omar (D-MN) — ally of the odious Rashida Tlaib — is on it:

“In the richest country in the world there’s no reason we can’t guarantee the right to affordable quality housing to everyone in the U.S.,” Omar said.

“And in 116th Congress, this should be a top priority,” she continued.

With socialists like Ilhan in charge, this won’t stay the richest country in the world for long. Prior to Chavez/Maduro, Venezuela was the richest country in Latin America.

“Our homelessness crisis is not a crisis of scarcity, but a crisis of moral clarity,” she said.

Moral clarity is when a tyrant confiscates your money to buy votes while spewing sanctimonious bleeding heart rhetoric.

Omar gripes that we spend too much on the military when we should be spending the money buying people “affordable” (i.e., heavily subsidized right up to being free) housing. I wonder why an Islamic supremacist representing a Somali colony (New Mogadishu, formerly known as Minneapolis) would want us to neglect military spending.

The really scary part comes when Dems proclaim that food is a human right. Consider the cornucopia of offerings at the nearest supermarket. Then consider what the shelves will look like when the federal government has taken control. We will find ourselves shopping in Venezuela.

Suffocating Moonbattery from Dictionary.com

There is no escape. Say you want to look up a word on Dictionary.com. Lately a large graphic has dominated the homepage featuring the unlovely grimace of the congresskook who made the news recently by screeching of the President of the United States that she would “impeach the motherf***er” on an unspecified charge. The caption reads, “Rashida Tlaib Backlash Raises the Question: Why Can’t Women Swear?”

Surely, they aren’t insisting, on what you would expect to be a politically neutral site, that we approve of Tlaib’s appalling behavior. After several days, morbid curiosity compelled me to click on the graphic. This reckless mistake plunged me into a realm of sheer moonbattery.

The link leads to a 1,000+-word article right there on the Dictionary.com site championing Tlaib’s obnoxiousness. The arguments, by necessity, are moronic. They boil down to: some men use foul language in public, so you are a sexist if you don’t like it when women do it too.

In support of this viewpoint, they present readers with a tweet by leftist Hollyweirdo Samuel Jackson that is too obscene to reproduce on a respectable website.

After defending Tlaib, the piece goes on the offense. Not only is it not bad that she calls the President a “motherf***er,” it is positively good — because moonbattery:

Feminist writer Mona Eltahawy summed it up succinctly when she wrote that, as a Muslim woman, she swears specifically because she “isn’t supposed to.” She does it to “make the patriarchy uncomfortable.” And that’s likely what Tlaib did, too.

Islamofeminism is inherently absurd. That could be why Islamofeminists are at the cutting edge of intersectional moonbattery (refer to Linda Sarsour).

The piece finishes on a note of triumph:

Forty-two members of the 2019 congress are women and 24 of them are people of color. Many of them are also younger than the average congressperson, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is 29, or Ilhan Omar, who is 37.

Moonbattery readers are familiar with Ocasio-Cortez and Omar, both of them ultramoonbats that no sane person would trust in a position of authority. But they are women of color, so they are qualified to rule over us.

The newest congressional class seems poised to speak for all Americans, swearing and all, and that’s proving to be an unsettling prospect to many older, white, and mostly male Americans who have traditionally functioned under the belief that they would always have the loudest voices in the room.

Swearing isn’t just swearing when moonbats like Rashida Tlaib do it. It is a righteous attack on old people, white people, and men. Every F-bomb is a blow for social justice!

That’s what you get fed when you just want check on how to spell a word, so thoroughly has belligerent moonbattery saturated every nook and cranny of society.

How They Know Invaders Will Vote Democrat

A story from February explains why Democrats want the border open, confident that the hordes flooding across to fundamentally transform our country will reliably vote Democrat for many generations to come. The invaders’ greedy, arrogant, and utterly unjustified sense of entitlement sets them squarely at the center of the Democrat reservation. They have even sued the country they invaded:

Six migrant families filed multi-million dollar claims Monday against the Trump administration over last year’s family separations, saying they need the money to pay for counseling and other medical care to heal from the “torture” they said they suffered.

Funny that people come from all over the world to break into our concentration camps so that they can be tortured.

Each claimant seeks $3 million.

No swarm of locusts could be more rapacious.

Of the six migrant families, five appear to have sneaked across the border and been arrested as illegal immigrants. Based on the filings, the sixth appears to have shown up at a port of entry without permission.

This is the equivalent of Japanese pilots suing the USA for shooting down their airplanes at Pearl Harbor.

I can’t find word on the progress of the suit. Once something enters the gears of the legal system, it can take years for anything to happen. That’s why it takes so long to get an illegal alien ordered deported. It takes even longer for the deportation to actually occur over the raging objections of Democrats.

The story indicates how willing the invaders are to exploit the phony rhetoric served up by the Left. When they have the numbers, they will be the ruling class. Our welfare state will enslave us to them. That’s where the Democrats come in, always eager to take a fat cut for enforcing wealth redistribution.
