A common fault of the right seems to be the mistaken belief that American Jews prioritize Israel over day to day concerns like healthcare, environmental issues, the economy, education, and a million other things.

These folks are like the guy in Animal House...."it wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor".....as his friend said "he's on a roll, let him run with it".....

Really? “The guy in Animal house”

Yeah, and some people did something.

That was the late, great John Belushi. One of the funniest guys of all time.

Maybe we have to thank the squad for showing what the Democratic Party is about and I* believe from what I have been hearing lately, that more Jews will vote for Trump. Maybe not all will do so because they agree with everything, but many can no longer stand behind the Democratic Party that is overflowing of Anti-Semitism.
You base the whole democratic party on 4 people

Fox News namesake William Fox was a Hungarian Jew who was conservative though he might have been liberal by today's standards. He would be disgusted at Faux News today.

I'm not basing it on 4 people. I'm basing it on the Democratic leadership's RESPONSE to those people, which is to tolerate - even excuse away - their antisemitism. The fact that Pelosi caved and would not issue a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, and instead defended Omar, is telling.

Hmm...choose between the party of white supremacists (the Jews will not replace us chant and Trump's "very fine people" comment) or a party that is critical of Israel's foreign policy.

Yea, very hard choice indeed.

The Democrats are more in bed with Louis Farrakhan and NOI than republicans are with white supremacists. Everytime some republican says something mildly correct but not PC about race (cough cough Steve King), Republicans rush to denounce him and remove them from relevance. Meanwhile, Obama was a good friend of Louis Farrakhan.

First, the nasty "Jews will not replace" us people are fringe loonies. They are not official members of Congress, being sanctioned by their Party. And second, for the umpteenth time, Trump never called white supremacists "fine people." You liberals have been lying about that for two years.

And your Party is not just critical of Israel's foreign policy. Omar, in her anti-Semitic rant about Jews and "the benjamins" did not say ANYTHING about Israeli policy. It was a condemnation of American Jews and their money - one of the oldest anti-Semitic tropes in the book. And Pelosi defended her.

How can you sit there and be OK with Omar and Tlaib? These are CONGRESSWOMEN, for G-d's sake! Did you read about the anti-Semitic group who sponsored their trip to "Palestine"? The same group that is out there STILL accusing Jews of drinking Christian blood for Passover?

Absolutely! And what about the fact that the Congressional Black Caucus invited him to their conference? He's the most notorious anti-Semite in America (hello...."termites", really??), and they give him a warm welcome?
