Symbolism over substance
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has caused the Democrat Party a headache. These poor established Democrats don’t know whether to poop or go blind. She has made several anti-Semitic remarks. The House Democrat “leadership” doesn’t know what to do with her! On one hand, she’s putting them on a bad spot, but on the other she’s the first Muslim woman to be elected to Congress. Of course, the Democrats put a lot of stock in firsts like this, and therein lies their problem. They’ve welcomed her into their fold, and now she’s making waves. What do you expect? She’s a Muslim. Their religion (as far as I know) wants to wipe Israel off the map and erase every other religion, while the U.S. government supports Israel’s right to exist.
That exemplifies what is wrong with the Democrat Party, namely symbolism over substance. They can’t rebuke her, insult her, because that might “offend” her. So what? In my humble opinion she doesn’t belong in our government anyway. The traditional Muslim goal is world domination, forced upon “infidels” with the edge of a sword, or an IED, or whatever terrorist method they choose.
When a political party puts “firsts” over what’s right, how can you expect them to govern fairly? Including just anybody because they would get a line in history books is worthless, and wrong. Electing somebody just because they’re Muslim, black, homosexual, an eloquent speaker, from Texas, or any other useless reason is sorry politics. I’m worried this country is headed for the socialist scrap pile. Young voters are electing socialists because they don’t know any better. Many grew up having everything handed to them, without having to earn anything.
When you vote, please use your brain and not your heart to cast your ballot. Think ahead, about your grandchildren and even beyond, if you can, if you care about anybody besides yourself.
