While Mr. Sanders was one of the first members of Congress to call for a humanitarian pause in the war amid a catastrophic civilian death toll in Gaza caused by Israel’s military offensive, he has rejected calls for a permanent cease-fire. Mr. Sanders, an independent, caucuses with Democrats.

Liberal activists across the country are demanding a cease-fire and have become increasingly vocal in condemning elected officials — including President Biden and many Democrats in Congress — for not doing so, accusing them of devaluing Palestinian lives and enabling unacceptable actions by Israel. But for many progressives, including former staff members on his presidential campaigns, Mr. Sanders’s more moderate tone in the current conflict has been particularly painful and disappointing given his long history of highlighting the plight of the Palestinian people.

While he is far from the only member of Congress facing pressure from the left, the break between a movement’s godfather and many of its activists reflects how bitterly the issue has divided Democrats, and the disillusionment some voters, especially young people, feel about the party as a result of the war.

“Biggest political disappointment of our generation,” Briahna Joy Gray, the national press secretary for Mr. Sanders’s 2020 presidential campaign, wrote about him on X.

    This is what happens when you don't play the EXACT libtard story the way you're supposed to. (curt, po, donna, and isle are completely safe). It's also what happens when a liberal has a mind and has the balls to think for themselves.

    I'm not a burney fan, but he does have the fortitude to face the left at their own game. They actually found a guy with integrity. After the bubba, then hill, and I expect bubba jr will step into the light soon. Then you've got little nancy that can't keep her hands out of insider trading. It's too bad they'll eat their own for no reason.

    And the thing is, I don't see that burney "hates" Palestinians. I think he sees it for what it is. An unfortunate attempt at genocide that was semi successful, using rape as a political and military tool, targeting and (horribly) murdering civilians.

    What we know about Hamas. They got these assholes from inside Gaza and the camps. These are people that know the areas, personally. Like Haiti which is 95% Catholic, 100% vodun. Gaza is 95% Muslim, 100% Hamas. Otherwise, how would you get 1/3 of the total residents to be fighters for them? Figure there are older males, boys less than 14, females of all ages (~50% of the population).

    OD - I actually agree with most of what you said. 👍

    The Ds are in for a big surprise imho. Anyone who's spent a little time on twitter left knows the younger generations are fed up with the Ds and their inability to get anything progressive accomplished. This is not the kind of blowback we saw with Hillary in 2016 - this is outright vitriol. They want NOTHING to do with the Democrats.

    Well, the US populace swayed the VietNam war, as well as every single war past that. A large part of running a war now (for the US ONLY) is "pubic approval") as a Korean cabbie told me about them rescuing their own people out of Afghanistan. His statement is that the public is as useful as pubic hair in deciding international action. We all had to agree. Ergo, the US is known to be the little nancies of their lambs.

    From another thread. Sorry.

    pb thinks that the Dems' take on the Hamas atrocities could be okay with America if the Doddering Old Fool still had a brain and could make the case and provide leadership.

    Instead, he's all "God save the Queen, man" and complaining about "Congressman Trump."

    Sheeeeeeeeeeeesh!

    Julianna Margulies Says Black and LGBTQ Supporters of Palestine Are "Brainwashed to Hate Jews"

    Julianna Margulies has called out the Black and LGBTQ community's lack of support for Israel in its fight against Hamas, and suggested that people backing Palestine were "brainwashed."

    Appearing on the Nov. 21 episode of The Back Room With Andy Ostroy podcast, Margulies briefly spoke about her role on The Morning Show, before the topic of the Israel-Hamas conflict took over. The actress began by saying she believed that the current rise of antisemitism in the U.S. was boosted by Donald Trump legitimizing the neo-Nazi protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

    After Israel was attacked by Hamas on Oct. 7, Margulies expressed her sadness that Black and LGBTQ people were, in her estimation, not supporting Israel when it retaliated, especially as she believed Jews had supported Black people, and other minorities, in their struggles. "I'm the first person to march [for] Black Lives Matter. When that happened to George Floyd, I put a black screen on my Instagram, like I ran to support my Black brothers and sisters," Margulies said, sounding exasperated.

    She added, "When LGBTQ people are being attacked, I run. I made a commercial for same-sex marriages with my husband in 2012. Like, I am the first person to jump up when something is wrong, as I think most Jews are, because we have been persecuted from the beginning of time, not just World War II, but literally from the beginning of time when we first lived in Israel way before anybody else."


    Julianna Margulies: College kids with ‘they/them’ pronouns supporting Hamas would be ‘beheaded’ in Gaza

    "It's those kids who are spewing antisemitic hate that have no idea if they stepped foot in an Islamic country, these people who want us to call them 'they/them' or whatever they want us to call them, which I have respectfully really made a point of doing. Like be whoever you want to be. It's those people that will be the first people beheaded, and their heads played with as a soccer ball, like a soccer ball on the field," Margulies said. "And that's who they're supporting? Terrorists who don't want women to have their rights, don't want LGB- LGBTQ people get executed bar none… and this is who you're supporting."

    Julianna Margulies Displays Shocking Bigotry in Gaza Rant...

  9. by Curt_Anderson on December 1, 2023 12:45 pm
    Indy,
    Did you read TheCut.com article you linked to? It's basically the same as OD's post of what Julianna Marguiles said. There was no effort to refute anything she said. It was just the headline that said it was "a shocking display of bigotry" to say things like:

    “It’s those kids [Black and queer people supporting Palestine] who are spewing this antisemitic hate that have no idea if they stepped foot in an Islamic country — these people who want us to call them they/them, or whatever they want us to call them, which I have respectfully really made a point of doing,” she said, adding, “It’s those people that will be the first people beheaded, and their heads played with [like] a soccer ball, like a soccer ball on the field.”


    It may be inflammatory, but is anything she said untrue?



  10. by Indy! on December 1, 2023 3:06 pm

    It's all absolutely 100% true, Curt - especially the headline.


  11. by Curt_Anderson on December 1, 2023 3:59 pm
    Indy,
    So you agree that everything Margulies said is true. TheCut.com article consisted of nothing more than her quotes, except the editorializing in the headline.

    It's debatable whether or not it's bigotry to call out bigotry. Where is the tolerance for the intolerant?

    Having lived under Sharia Law, everything she said is true. And if you would go to those countries, you would face severe charges (in Sharia Law, "severe" is kept for those offences where you'll get the death penalty). That's just their law. Period. They'll tell you that. I don't think it's Margulies being the bigot. She is laying out the same facts I have enumerated several times since 10/7 and before.


  14. by Indy! on December 1, 2023 10:18 pm

    But do you see the problem here, OD? Nobody is going to move to those countries. Heck it would be better to move to freakin' Kansas or some other flyover shiitehole in Red meat country than move there. Not by much - but at least a little.


  15. by oldedude on December 2, 2023 5:20 am
    I don't see that moving there is of any consequence. Perhaps it makes them more removed from the situation, and the reality still exists. For the groups to support these governments/cultures is extremely counterintuitive to me. Why would you support a government that hates you? Other than they're the enemies of your enemies. Which puts the Palestinian supporters on the same par as the die-hard Nazis. All of the terrorist groups in the middle-east have sworn to eliminate Israel and all Jews worldwide. Openly and in their missions.

    This is just a fact.

    We saw what happened when the protests happened in Iran. obomber just sat with his johnson in both hands and did nothing to help them. Iran murdered thousands of those people during and afterwards (well, in fairness the people "disappeared" never to be found, so there's no proof they died. Just no bodies were found). I think it's about time the snowflakes actually understand what they're doing and saying.
