Default Several 2020 Democrats to skip AIPAC conference after call to boycott

"Hey! Democrats aren't anti-Semitic! No excuse us as we team together to refuse to talk the Jewish Political Action Committee we've been attending for decades!!!!!"...

Several 2020 Democrats to skip AIPAC conference after call to boycott

Quote:
Several Democratic presidential candidates will skip the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's policy conference this year after a prominent progressive group called on them to boycott the event.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will all ditch the conference, the Associated Press reported, and a spokesman for former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, told NBC News that he also will not attend.

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, will not be going, The Jewish Week reported, and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro also won't show, according to HuffPost.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is considering running for president as an independent, will also skip the conference, the Associated Press reported.

Josh Orton, a policy director for Sanders, told NBC News that the senator is "concerned about the platform AIPAC is providing for leaders who have expressed bigotry and oppose a two-state solution.”

Sanders didn't attend the 2016 conference while he was running in the Democratic presidential primary, but addressed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at length during a speech around the time of the event.

The candidates' decisions to skip the prominent pro-Israel lobbying group’s conference come one day after liberal group MoveOn.org called on all 2020 presidential candidates to steer clear of the event.
So far-Lefty blog demands purity test against Israel, and the Dem candidates yell "Thank you, sir! May I have another!"...

what goes up must come down and by the same token (Yin and yang), what swings too far right comes back too far left.

Drinking and posted again I see.

As for the topic of the thread, this is just further evidence that the Democratic party is going so far to the left that they now HAVE to oppose positions that they held just a year or so ago. Stunts and actions like this may get them the nomination, but good luck winning the general with stunts like this.

But as a Conservative who hopes that none of these far left wack jobs ever sniff the White House, I have to say thank you. It is about time that the left showed their true colors for the world to see. I hope that the Jewish communities in this country take notice of how much the Democrats want you in their tent. There is plenty of room in the Republican party for them.

Their is a new term that describes the Jewish communities leaving the Democrat Party..."Jexodus"...

From a Swimsuit Model to the Trump Megaphone: The Genesis of ‘Jexodus’

JEXODUS: Jewish Millennials Launch A ‘Liberation Movement’ From The Democratic Party

‘Jexodus’ May Pose Problems for Democrats

Whether enough leave to make a difference is still unknown...Way too early to tell...

As long as Jews don't close their wallets Democrats could care less about offending them. Democrats couldn't even summon up the fortitude to condemn Representative Omar by name

I have wondered why the Jews haven't closed their wallets.

It's as real as "Blexit" was last year.
