He didn't say Arabs. He said Muslims.

Iranians are Muslim they speak Farsi (Persian) which is not a Semite language. Same or Indonesia which is also Muslim. They do not speak a Semite language.

Hence the conclusion made that Muslims are Semites is incorrect.

The Quran is in Arabic. There are Jews in India who speak Indian languages. So what?

Nothing further need to be said. It's not that they don't know they are hypocritical, it's that they don't care.

Y'know, I actually do worry about that, but not necessarily that the Dems will do it -- any "crazy" could do it, and that might be enough to send those "in the middle" to the left -- and the same thing in reverse could happen if someone kills a current or future POTUS or another political leader who is considered to be far right.

Although I greatly dislike extremists on both sides of the political spectrum, I just hope that nothing like that ever happens, although I fear it will.

Talib wants to boycott fellow dem, Bill Maher.


I guess Talib's hatred of Jews exceeds her zeal for the dem party. Now that the dem party endorses Talib, they are officially becoming the party of anti-semiticism.
The boycott queen. BDS, now Maher. What’s next?

They hate everyone except the BORG. AOC called Pelosi a racist. Biden is being called a racist.

They eat their own with no conscience. They don't even bother to think about what they're doing anymore. They are a brainwashed tribe of idiots.

Don't forget that Tlaib and Omar both backed ISIS. I'd say that is about as anti-American as one can become. Now they represent us in Congress? Holy Crap!
