If you are woke enough tonight, you can catch the Democratic debates to see how Mike and Bernie stack up against one other. Dominic Green in Spectator USA gives an inkling of what we can expect.
The real drama in the Mike and Bernie show is that the communal feuding of American Jews is going public. You could call this a nightmare scenario, were it not already the reality of the politics of the American Jewish institutions among which both Bernie and Mike should be numbered. American Jews are almost unanimously pro-Israel, but their would-be leaders are, like most politicians, far more polarized, in this case over Israel.
The closest Bernie has ever come to manual labor was a short stint on a kibbutz in the Sixties. But Bernie is a man of principle. The shifting and stringent demands of international leftism now oblige him to call the Netanyahu government ‘racist’ and to falsely accuse the Israeli military of killing ‘over 10,000 innocent’ Palestinian civilians in the Gaza war of 2014.
Will Hamas Endorse Bernie?
Even Hamas, which has yet to declare on endorsing Bernie’s candidacy, only claimed 1,462 civilians had been killed out of a total of 2,251.
Expect Mike to catch Bernie on the numbers during tomorrow night’s debate, and Bernie to levitate a little as small jets of steam emit from his ears and he mumbles furiously to himself.
Also expect that the next president will, like the current one, be the guy with the Jewish grandchildren.
