Bauer: Evidence indicts 'The Squad,' et al.

'The Squad' (Omar, AOC, et al.)A conservative activist says evidence is growing that those on the progressive left completely reject the American nation.

The four first-term congresswomen known as "The Squad" (pictured) continue to attain power and influence in the halls of Congress. Instead of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (California), Representatives Rashida Tlaib (Michigan), Ilhan Omar (Minnesota), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (New York), and Ayanna Pressley (Massachusetts) have been viewed by many as the real driving force of the Democratic Party.

The four Democratic lawmakers are among the almost 100 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which Gary Bauer says is on board with "The Squad."

"I think the evidence is growing that on the progressive left there is a complete rejection of the American nation," says the president of American Values. "They do not believe we were ever a great country. No matter how many advances we make in racial reconciliation and ensuring rights for all Americans, they are never satisfied."

Bauer argues that the far left believes America is an evil nation.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)"They reject free markets; they embrace socialism. They believe America was built on slavery [and] genocide. They routinely attack law enforcement, the American military, our border guards," he lists. "And they use language that you would expect from enemies of the United States – not from fellow Americans who merely want to reform or improve the United States."

Bauer says it's unfortunate that the four freshman Democrats have so much influence and power because they represent the views of a significant percentage of the Democrat Party's base as well as that of a growing portion of the American population.

What exactly is Omar calling for?

Another aspect of America that at least some "progressives" struggle with is its close relationship with Israel. OneNewsNow spoke with a pro-Israel activist who is concerned over what Congresswoman Ilhan Omar – who yesterday vowed to be Donald Trump's "nightmare" in the coming months – means when she likens the BDS movement against Israel to Germany's boycott of the Jews leading up to World War II.

Omar and her fellow Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib – both of whom are Muslim – have introduced a resolution supporting the Boycott, Sanctions, Divestment (BDS) movement against Israel. Omar argues that the right to boycott is an expression of free speech, and she cited examples of boycott movements involving Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and apartheid South Africa.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, is aghast at the implications.

"Ilhan Omar [and] Rashida Tlaib are calling for [Americans] – like the Nazis boycotted the Jews and the Jewish businesses - not to shop in Jewish stores. She is basically calling to reinstate what the German Nazis did to the Jews," she states.

That German boycott led to the "Kristallnacht: The Night of Broken Glass" – a Nazi pogram of violent protests that plundered and destroyed Jewish businesses and homes.

"Is that what Ilhan Omar is supporting? The Nazi Germans were boycotting the Jews who lived in Germany – and it wasn't long after that that they started to kill the Jews," notes Cardoza-Moore. "Is that what Ilhan Omar is suggesting? Is that what she is calling for?"

She predicts this is going to backfire on the Democrats.
