Anyway, I know it's hard to handle sometimes but:

two things can both be unacceptably bad, without being equally bad. The problem with "lesser evilism" as a political philosophy is the existence of a "worse thing" is used to justify an unacceptably bad thing.
You don't need to find a "balance" here - you can just say "the way recent Democratic administrations have aided and empowered slow genocide against Palestinians by Israel is unacceptable and barbaric; also, Republicans have been notably worse too."

That's just being honest.
It's okay to look at the historical record and say "holy shit, all of this is bad, and look at how much shittier it got when Reagan, Bush and Trump were in charge"

And imho, if you look at that historical record of US govt aiding Israeli genocide, that's what you'll see.
