She's a vile anti-Semitic bigot and needs to be removed from Congress.

She is disgusting for many reasons. In the past, she gone on tv and bragged about having an abortion.

Sick bitch.

So what, OP? Do you think Muslim politicians won’t be reelected by their Muslim constituents? They’re doing what their constituency wants. They’re representing them. They’ll be reelected. Your personal outrage is pointless. You know how voting works, right?

Pramila Jayapal says blowback from calling Israel ‘racist state’ reveals ‘double standard’

by Anonymousreply 4December 4, 2023 1:12 AM

Seattle Times:

Facing escalating blowback for calling Israel “a racist state,” U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal said Monday she supports “a strong U.S.-Israel relationship,” but argued she and other politicians of color have been unfairly singled out for criticizing Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

“It’s not right to call out progressives, but then not recognize that most of us that get called out are women, Black, brown, immigrant. You cannot, you just cannot skip over that,” Jayapal said in an interview with The Seattle Times, asserting a “double standard” is wielded against progressives.

Jayapal also said Monday she won’t attend this week’s scheduled address to a joint session of Congress by Israel’s president, but said it’s not a boycott — just a scheduling conflict.

Jayapal, D-Seattle, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, made international headlines with her comments over the weekend while trying to talk down pro-Palestine protesters who had interrupted a panel discussion at the Netroots Nation convention in Chicago.

She walked back her comments somewhat with a statement to clarify that she didn’t believe “the idea of Israel as a nation is racist,” while still criticizing the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for “discriminatory and outright racist policies.”

A bipartisan furor over Jayapal’s comments erupted, with House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries and other top Democrats issuing a statement that did not directly name Jayapal but began with “Israel is not a racist state.”

Dana Bash is an unrepentant harlot!

Dana Bash is a gash.

And Jayapal is an ignorant racist.

Why do you think she’s a racist?

by Anonymousreply 9December 4, 2023 1:19 AM

Her comments speak for themselves. I don’t need to research, I’ve followed her for a while. This is still a shock though. I had no idea her Jew hatred went so deep. Nary a mention of 200,000 Black Israelis ever. The rape rationale alone is reason enough to dismiss her as a non-serious person.

Pramila Jaya can go fuck herself with a rusty chainsaw. FUCK her, that cunt can rot in hell.

She’s an incredibly vile person.
