For years, we’ve heard about “civil wars” being waged within the Democratic Party. Moderate Democrats have frequently been at odds with progressives.
Left-wing Democrats are increasingly taking over the party. They are forcing radically progressive ideals onto Democrats. Yet we haven’t seen a public split, because party leaders have managed to force unity.
But a new controversy could potentially rend the part in half for good. Progressives are rallying around a cause that has turned the stomachs of millions of voters. And this crisis could mean a major rift among liberals.
From Fox News:
The Democratic Party is divided over pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian factions in a major split that may tear the party apart for a “generation,” according to a recent Wall Street Journal report.
“It has been an incredibly clarifying and terrifying moment at the same time for many progressive Jews,” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt told the WSJ’s Molly Ball. “They’re calling me, tweeting, messaging, expressing shock and sadness that the people they marched with, the causes they marched for, have abandoned them in their hour of need.”
According to reports, support for Palestine and Hamas could tear Democrats apart. In the aftermath of the October 7th attack, most far-left Democrats rallied behind Palestinians.
They called Israel an “apartheid state” and condemned its response to the murder of 1,400 Israelis. Progressives on college campuses supported an anti-Israel view, spreading the hateful propaganda of Hamas terrorists.
This has spread to pro-Palestinian marches in most U.S. cities. Progressives are mainly siding with the groups that hate Israel.
Meanwhile, many Jewish Americans have voted Democrat for years. Many of them were progressive, supporting the same left-wing causes as other progressives. But some are waking up to the fact that the “woke” ideology they supported brands their people and nation as “evil.”
This extends to many more Americans, besides Jewish people. Democrats who thought they were on the “right” side are shocked to see progressives dismiss or even doubt reports of what Hamas did to helpless civilians.
Some are predicting this rift could destroy the Democrat party for a generation. Pro-Palestinian progressives do not seem willing to change their views. And Jewish Americans can’t continue supporting a movement that calls for their destruction.
Can Democrats bring these groups together and stay unified? Progressives have repeatedly attacked President Biden over the White House’s support for Israel. If he continues to support the Jewish state, he will lose the far left.
If he abandons it, he will lose millions of Americans. It’s a lose-lose.
- Democrats are experiencing a rift over the Israel-Hamas war.
- Radical progressives are backing Palestine, spreading anti-Jewish views.
- Other Democrats, including many Jewish Americans, are shocked at the growing hatred against Israel.
