No surprise here. It’s ‘Very Difficult’ to Be a Jew in the Democratic Caucus, There’s ‘Seemingly a Lack of Progressive Love’. Yes this Democrat congressman is finding out just what it’s like to go against white and black progressives. We have this from Breitbart.
On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” 2024 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) stated that “being a Jewish member of Congress in the Democratic Caucus is very difficult right now,” “And there is seemingly a lack of progressive love when it comes to our doorstep.”
Host Bill Maher asked, “[D]o you think the Democratic Party is too race-obsessed?”
Phillips answered, “I’ve never walked in the shoes of my black brothers and sisters, my brown brothers and sisters, my Asian American brother[s] and sisters. They’ve never walked in my shoes. I love them all. I do think that it’s problematic, I think that’s why we may not be winning elections that we should be and need to be right now. I think that we have to be more inclusive in the way that we talk about and we’re actually not practicing. And by the way, being a Jewish member of Congress in the Democratic Caucus is very difficult right now, you can imagine. And there is seemingly a lack of progressive love when it comes to our doorstep. And it’s problematic. I know I don’t look like someone whose community might need support or affection or protection.”
