Democrat leaders are typically as woke as they get. But sometimes, even they realize things are going too far.
And now a Democrat Senate leader betrays the Left in a sudden change of heart.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer delivered a blistering speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday, ripping the woke Left for its overt anti-Semitism in the days following Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attack against Israel.
Schumer, who is Jewish, said as the highest-ranking elected Jew in U.S. history, he felt compelled to speak out about what is happening and about anti-Semitism that Jews have experienced worldwide throughout history.
Schumer quickly called out the woke Left as being the primary culprit of anti-Semitism as he highlighted statistics showing how anti-Semitic incidents have erupted in recent weeks.
“The solidarity that Jewish Americans initially received from many of our fellow citizens was quickly drowned out by other voices,” he said.
“While the dead bodies of Jewish Israelis were still warm, while hundreds of Jewish Israelis were being carried as hostages back to Hamas tunnels under Gaza, Jewish Americans were alarmed to see some of our fellow citizens characterize a brutal terrorist attack as justified because of the actions of the Israeli government.”
He continued: “A vicious, bloodcurdling, premeditated massacre of innocent men, women, children, the elderly — justified! Even worse, in some cases, people even celebrated what happened, describing it as the deserved fate of quote ‘colonizers’ and calling for quote ‘glory to the martyrs’ who carried out these heinous attacks.”
Schumer said that those anti-Semitic statements largely were not coming from the far-right, but from “people that most liberal Jewish Americans felt previously were their ideological fellow travelers.”
He also addressed specific examples of anti-Semitism that have occurred in recent weeks, including boycotts of Jewish businesses, swastikas appearing on Jewish delis, and students being harassed for wearing a yarmulke or displaying a Jewish star.
Schumer concluded his speech by saying, “We must stand united against anti-Semitism, no matter where it comes from. We must not allow the voices of hate to drown out the voices of reason and compassion. And we must never forget that anti-Semitism is a threat to all of us, not just the Jewish people.”
Schumer’s speech is a welcome departure from the usual silence from Democrats on anti-Semitism.
It is important for Democrats to speak out against anti-Semitism, regardless of its source, but sadly that is rarely the case.
The Left seems to only condemn the actions of Republicans, Conservatives, and true patriots while praising the atrocities of the Radical Left.
The Radical Left’s anti-Semitism is a serious problem that must be addressed.
Schumer’s speech is a powerful reminder of the dangers of anti-Semitism. It is important for all of us to stand united against anti-Semitism, especially in times like this.
While Schumer is not a strong leader and he is definitely not what America needs right now, at least he is doing what other Democrats refuse to do: condemn the atrocities of the Left.
America needs to be standing up for our Jewish community and not allow this hate to continue.
The Radical Left is destroying America, and we need leaders who will not allow this to happen.
It is time for America to be great again, and the American people must vote for officials who understand that.
