The radicalization of the Democratic Party continues, and the leftist media is celebrating that outcome.

On Tuesday evening, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were elected to the House of Representatives, making history as the first Muslim women to be elected to Congress. While that is indeed a historic achievement, the two women won on a radical platform.

Omar, who engages in anti-Semitic rhetoric, has slandered Israel as an “apartheid regime” and called on “Allah” to “awaken the people” to see the “evil doings of Israel.”

There is also a lot of evidence that she may have married her brother and therefore committed massive immigration fraud, according to PJ Media.

Tlaib celebrated her congressional victory not with an American flag, but with a Palestinian flag. 

Tlaib supports the anti-Semitic BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement against the state of Israel, which seeks to delegitimize and eventually extinguish the Jewish state.

Both women have spoken at events for the Hamas-tied Council on American Islamic Relations.

Yet for all of their hateful views, this hasn’t stopped the legacy media from celebrating the two women as the apparent future of the Democratic Party

Israel used to be a bipartisan issue. It appears that is no longer the case. Democrat pro-Israel Jews have very little representation left in Congress, and momentum is heading in the other direction. It’s time for them to awaken to the reality that the Democratic Party is ready to abandon them altogether.
