Does a Bear Poop in the Woods?

Do Democratic Socialists have a Jewish problem? - New York Daily News (nydailynews.com)

Since that time, the Democratic Socialists of America of which AOC is a member have continued to court controversy by, among other things, requesting that City Council candidates pledge not to travel to Israel if elected, refusing to say whether Israel has the right to exist at all, and most recently stating that taking Rep. Jamaal Bowman to task for having traveled to Israel (with a pro-peace Jewish organization that has worked with Bernie Sanders) and meeting with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is “its highest priority right now” in a statement where they also opposed “the ‘normalization’ of relationships between the Israeli government and other governments.”

Taking them at their word, I assume they seek to isolate not only the Israeli government but any government — like, say, Morocco’s — that wants bilateral relations with them. This is apart from occasional individual attacks on AOC, such as a meme that circulated in a WhatsApp group using unprintable racist language to attack her relationship with Jewish individuals.

Thank you, Mr. Obvious. The modern Democratic Party is anti-Semitic at its core. It’s amazing that it’s taken this long for a left-leaning paper to notice, but at least they finally did. The question is, what will this paper do next? Is this the last article you see like this? I suspect that for the time being it is. Maybe you’ll see something in 2023 if the Democrats lose the House & Senate next November. Until then…shhh.
