Yup. But why would they? No one's pressuring them to defend Jewish rights. Progressives could make it happen in an instant if they wanted to. But if they wanted to, we wouldn't be in this position to begin with.
Additionally, there are no left of center groups within the tribe leaning on them to do so. Both the ADL and the main Democratic Jewish group are run by ex-Obama admin apparatchiks who are Democratic activists and are simply covering their party's flank.
Where would the pressure come from? Will movie stars pull productions out of New York? Bands about to begin touring again boycotting MSG? Cmon.
Sad thing here is I quite literally predicted/warned of this specifically. When UK Jews united against Corbyn, I pointed out that we'd never have that kind of solidarity within--let alone without--American Jewry: ImageImage
I mean I just don't know how many ways I can say it. ImageImageImageImage

Still not a single elected Democrat--not one--has criticized the squad directly over their recent rhetoric. Not a single one. I wish I could say Dems were insufficiently policing their caucus, but that would require any policing at all whatsoever.
As someone who was doxxed by neo-Nazis in a post that showed my wife with a target on her back for speaking out against Trump, you can understand why I can't even pretend to have sympathy for these Dem cowards.
Not sure there was a louder voice against Steve King in conservative national media. Endorsed removing MTG's committee assignments. 'Party over country' never made sense to me, still doesn't. So the 'collegiality' defense by Dems for not stepping up here won't play. Grow up.

Straight up incitement from the NY Times. An entire article claiming that the problem is Jews moving from one city to another city in the Jewish state.

Jewish lives are considered themselves a provocation. This is some mid-20th-century-Poland horsecaca
NYT and others were doing this before the Jersey City massacre too. Painting the appearance of visible Jews in the city as something nefarious. It was followed by violence--as expected.
There won't be any sort of protest at the NYT among staffers, I'm guessing.

CNN admitting its role in the Covid coverup and then saying 'we won't do it again' is really an amazing moment that probably deserves more attention.
Found the state media!
The sexual harassment stuff is juicy too (hence it gets the headline) but I'm much more interested in the continued findings of Cuomo and his brother's coronavirus antics and CNN's refusal take seriously washingtonpost.com/politics/chris…

"The faction that replaced the party leadership and for whom the speaker of the House personally intervened to help them defeat more pro-Israel Democrats in the primary are criticizing Israel, but what does former Rep. Steve Israel say?" is a hell of a delusion.
If you think I'm kidding, I am absolutely not kidding:

Couple years ago when a New Yorker writer tweeted that Zionism and white supremacy are birds of a feather I was surprised he said it out loud. Things are getting less surprising.
Good call.

One thing I've noticed from seeing various conversations with pundits and writers on twitter today: when someone brings up the 'proportionate response' canard and is then asked to define it, the conversation hits an abrupt wall.
The more honest among them are like AOC--they complain that Israel has Iron Dome and Hamas doesn't, so they're arguing what others think but try not to say: not enough dead Israelis.
They also make clear they don't think Hamas's response--starting a cross border war by repeatedly and intentionally bombing civilian centers--is 'disproportionate' to the offense. Which is how you know they define 'disproportionate' as 'Israel=bad.'
