Yesterday in #13, OR wrote:

 Also:” The hostages should be the first priority”.

The fact that this would give all the cards to Hamas doesn’t matter.

Oh, I disagree slightly--it's not that it doesn't matter, it's that it is what these people want. They want Israel to fail and Hamas to win. Why? Sarah Hoyt explained it beautifully yesterday. Her article is long and goes into many things besides the Israel-Hamas issue, but I believe she nails the left's argument about Israel on the head.

Great line from Stephen Kruiser this morning about the Democrats: 

I frequently call the Democrats the “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” party because of their ability to go blank about any history that is inconvenient for their various false narratives.

Very short article, but includes an ugly tale about a child working in a Perdue Farms building that came into the US as an unaccompanied minor. 

This, also, goes back to Sarah Hoyt's article I linked to above.

Is anyone here surprised by this? I doubt it: Report: Tlaib Employed Hamas Activists, Had ‘Extensive Fundraising Ties’ to Hamas Supporters

So...given that Hamas has been declared a terrorist organization by the US back in 1997 and, to my knowledge, has not rescinded that designation, and given her close ties to people in Hamas, would it not be accurate--using LLLeftist logic, of course--that we call Tlaib a terrorist?

Whatever Happened to Safe Spaces – Jewish Students Terrorized at Cooper Union

This is getting incredibly dangerous when Jewish students have to sneak out of a building through the tunnels because police won't arrest the demonstrators who could turn violent at any time.

And I'll bet those same mostly-peaceful protesters congratulate themselves on being anti-"Nazi".

Good afternoon from the middle of the US. Are you back at 100%, or closer to, say, 80%?

FWIW: Senior Hamas thug tells Financial Times that the terror gang (or “humanitarian organization”, if you’re Nancy Pelosi) did not expect this much response from the US:

Just a reminder:

The "decolonization" rhetoric currently flying around is hilarious; Israel is the least "colonial" nation in the entire Middle East.

Egypt? Former British colony. Jordan? Ditto---established by the colonial British as a consolation prize after it screwed the Hashemites out of their Arabian kingdom to accommodate the "House of Saud" brigand clan. Lebanon? Syria? French colonies, post-WWI. Yemen? Aden? British colonies that were granted independence after Israel was established.

Israel was created by land purchases from Muslim landowners, and achieved its indepenence by fighting both their British colonial overlords and the Arabs that tried to crush it.

Also noteworthy, Israel is country whose very creation was explicitly "authorized" by the United Nations.  Funny how the Progs who usually fawn over the UN seem to conveniently forget that.

The Ugly Nazi considers it a mistake and has been working to revoke it for years.

I think it is time for the Democratic Socialists to split from the Democrat party and form their own. They can show their multiculturalism by culturally appropriating an ancient Hindu symbol also appropriated by another party with "Socialist" in its name.

OK, there is a difference - the Democratic Socialists don't want to execute gays.

I watched the original Ghostbusters tonight with Little OR, and he loved it.

You have no idea how happy this makes me.
