Ilhan Omar Gets a Proper Endorsement

As a former political consultant I can tell you that an endorsement from an individual or group that supports the agenda of a candidate or elected official can be very valuable. Rep. Ilhan Omar, Dem of MN, got exactly such an endorsement recently.

Was it from Reinhard Heydrich? No, he’s been on sabbatical for over seventy years. Osama bin Laden? Nah, a bit off the grid these days. It’s from a man who, though from a different background, shares many of the freshman Rep’s goals and aspirations and also has a similar level of political credibility.

Yes, Omar was endorsed by David Duke. Birds of a feather, eh?

If you’re wondering what the former Grand Exalted Washbasin is doing these days aside from his usual Holocaust denying and losing elections in Louisiana, he’s playing by the “my enemy’s enemy is my friend” game of politics. But there’s a quandary. Is his usual pronounced disdain for anyone not of thoroughly pink hue overshadowed by his Jew-baiting? Ah, decisions, decisions…

Duke also has a new shtick. He wants Jews to pay for the wall with Mexico. I assume this is because the U.S. is beset with a rising tide of CPAs and board-certified doctors of internal medicine covertly sneaking across our southern border to terrorize chic restaurants and above-average country clubs. Or maybe the whey-faced nitwit just doesn’t like Jews.

Who would have thought?

Both Omar and Duke fit into the general grouping of a roaringly anti-Semitic leftist (yes, it was National Socialism, remember?) punks and fascists who inhabit the slimier lower rungs of American politics. Will give Omar this, at least she got elected to federal office. Duke’s attempt at the Louisiana governorship some time ago, running against the overtly and gleefully corrupt Edwin Edwards, prompted the printing of bumper stickers that said “Vote For The Crook. It’s Important.” Edwards won.

However, perhaps the best commentary on this development comes from a professionally accomplished and attractive female pal I’ve known for over a couple of decades. Joan London, an ace PA attorney, opined, “They’d better get along. They have all eternity in hell together.”

Indeed.
