Many Jews are leaving the DNC. From The Western Journal:
Coming on the heels of the broader #WalkAway movement of people leaving the Democratic Party, which spurred more specific sub-movements such as “Blexit” and “Lexit” — black exit and Latino exit, respectively — is this new movement devoted to Jews who no longer feel welcomed in the party that a plurality has long called a political home. The website of the upstart Jexodus movement states, “We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left.” (Read more.)

A rise in bigotry from the Left. From The National Review:
This is campus activism come to Congress. Did you wonder why campus incidents so often seem to elevate the most radical voices? The same dynamic applies. Activists who possess the proper identity then speak with absolute authority, and the only acceptable woke response is to ally with their demands. 
On the one hand, there is an element of intersectionality that simply comports with common sense — after all, people from different identity groups do experience the world differently, and any diverse society values diverse voices. But identity isn’t a substitute for credibility or authority or morality. We respect people enough to treat them as adults and weigh their ideas on their own merits. 
By that standard, there is no merit to Omar’s noxious thoughts. Accusations of Israeli hypnotism, purchased loyalty, and dual allegiance don’t represent thoughtful critiques of Israeli policy. Omar’s challenging childhood isn’t the fault of the Israeli government, and it doesn’t relieve her of the obligation to shun the vicious anti-Semitism that plagues the extreme Left. (Read more.) 

From PJ Media:
I'm not Jewish, and I don't pretend to know what it's like to be Jewish. What I do know is that anti-Semitism is a litmus test to decide whether a person is capable of acting in good faith. If you genuinely believe that Jews have hypnotized the world, that anybody who disagrees has been bought off with Jewish money, and that Americans who criticize such rhetoric are more loyal to Israel than their own country -- all of which are things Ilhan Omar has said -- then there's just no reasoning with you. You are an insane bigot. I don't care if you're wearing a hijab or a MAGA hat, an anti-Semite is an anti-Semite. 
But the Democrats in Congress disagree. Yesterday they had a chance to condemn Omar's anti-Semitism, and instead they decided to make her a victim. Here's an excerpt from House Resolution 183, which was supposed to be a response to her remarks but ended up being a lot of nonsense like this: 
Whereas white supremacists in the United States have exploited and continue to exploit bigotry and weaponize hate for political gain, targeting traditionally persecuted peoples, including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and others with verbal attacks, incitement, and violence...Yes, exactly, white supremacists made Ilhan Omar say all that stuff. And didn't you know that lots of other people have been hurt as well? What's so special about the Jews? #AllFeelingsMatter. (Read more.)
