Biden reelection chances tanking as antisemites divide the Democratic Party
It may all come down to this: does the antisemitic Left in America hate Israel more than it hates Donald Trump? To be clear, most Democrats, including Biden, support Israel in this current war.
But those that don’t are getting in Biden’s face.
Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has released a video on X warning Biden to support a cease-fire or face electoral consequences. That’s bad for Biden, but possibly worse is all the Jewish hatred we’re seeing on college campuses. He could lose the youth vote over that.
So, what should Biden do? Remember he regularly calls trump supporters “MAGA extremists,” But he’s learning that the real extremists are in his own party.

Biden’s two biggest problems are college campuses – and The Squad.
Harvard, branded as America’s most elite campus, has become the poster child for antisemitic extremism. But it’s not alone as demonstrations and anti-Israel chants are infesting colleges and universities around the nation.
In Seattle, students at the University of Washington (a proud soon-to-be member of the Big 10 Conference) chanted:
“There is only one solution.”
Perhaps the scariest of all the rallies too place at Cooper Union in Manhattan where Jewish students barricaded themselves in the library as pro-Palestinian students banged on the door in pure hatred of the students inside.
They were chanting:
“Globalize the intifada from New York to Gaza!”
Harvard may be the worst of all. At the university where students are supposed to be the smartest in the land, they are looking like the stupidest. And why? The obvious answer is left-wing professors that hate Israel and America, and teach it in their classes. The students are nothing more than foot soldiers for the faculties’ left-wing radicalism.
And some college presidents seem to hide under the guise of “free speech.” Thankfully, major donors are withdrawing support. If it took this to expose our universities – so be it. Maybe now we can fix them.
Tlaib, Omar, Casar and company.
Ah, The Squad. Tlaib’s video of warning to Biden is but the tip of the iceberg. Pundit Marc Thiessen is outraged that they remain in Congress sans any consequences:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) declared at an Oct. 18 rally that hundreds of Palestinian civilians were killed in an Israeli strike on a hospital in Gaza, a claim that had been debunked as Hamas propaganda. She has faced no penalty for spreading this blood libel, nor for accusing her House colleagues of dual loyalty—a classic antisemitic trope—by declaring in 2019 that “they forgot what country they represent.” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has said that pro-Israel politicians “push for allegiance to a foreign country” and that U.S. support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins.” Yet both remain members in good standing of the House Democratic caucus.
How much longer can people like Tlaib, Omar, and Alexandrea Ocasio-Cortez remain in Congress spouting hate against Israel and often, against America as well.
Sadly and embarrassingly, Austin area Congress member Greg Casar is one of the extremists in this disgusting alliance.
Sadder still is the overwhelming possibility that Casar will continue to be sent back to Washington by the left-wing electorate in his district.
So, who’s extreme now?
That would be the Democrats. We’re seeing that now. By contrast, Republicans and conservatives that stand up for life, smaller government, racial color blindness, and ending surgical mutilation of children seem like reasoned, logical adults.
But Democrats have told us a number of things.
- Trump, in wanting to Make America Great Again, is extreme.
- The new House Speaker, “MAGA Mike Johnson,” is extreme.
- Keeping males out of female sports is extreme.
- Keeping pornography out of school libraries is extreme.
- Protecting children from sex-change surgical mutilation is extreme.
- Controlling our own border is extreme.
- Trying to stop drunken-politician spending is extreme.
- Valuing all life – even in the womb – is extreme.
- Saying “All Lives Matter” is extreme.
- Having a say in your child’s education is extreme.
And Biden rants on about “White Supremacy,” which exists but is anything but rampant in America. It turns out that antisemitism isn’t rare at all. It’s everywhere you look, and Joe Biden has a touch of it himself in the way that he has shunned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The extremists in America seem to flock to one party – the Democrats – and they are tearing it apart. If the election were held today, Trump, DeSantis, or Haley would beat Biden like a drum. The only thing that remains to be seen is what price colleges and certain members of Congress will pay for their racism and open hatred against the people of Israel.
