The usual suspects, Muslim Jew-haters and extremists. It’s better without them. Back in 2006, I had the honor to be present in the Congress when the Israeli Prime Minister (then Ehud Olmert) addressed the Congress. I was not a fan of his, but it was thrilling. The moment was much bigger than who the PM was.
The response by the Congress was overwhelming. He was met with thunderous applause, except for a small group of the long, ugly faces who sat there motionless, never applauding, never smiling — silently hissing. Here’s how I described them:
Now there was a group of sour faced nasty looking attendees, all seated together, they would applaud nothing, instead they grimaced and sat like lemmings, lovers of evil.. I don’t know who they were, I suspect they are the same savages that voted against the terror bill, here but I will investigate further. It is frightening to know that people like this exist, people that would scowl at fighting terror– and be legislators in what is the ‘greatest deliberate body in the world’.
They were shameful — a terrible embarrassment to this country. Those miscreants are more or less those same Jew haters, self-hating Jews and Muslim antisemites. Believe me, it is better for Netanyahu that they not attend. The room will smell far sweeter.
As of today, this is a list of all the 30 idiot Congressional Democrats who are skipping Netanyahu’s speech because it ‘offends’ their anti-Israel president. And it’s an ugly list too.
According to CNN, there are even more Democrats who claim to be undecided:
Many more have said they’re undecided on whether to attend, and more defections could emerge in the coming days. A full list of the Democrats who have confirmed they’re missing the speech follows:
SENATE – 4 members
Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.)
Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.)
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
Sen. Brian Schatz (Hawaii)
HOUSE – 26 members
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (Ore.)
Rep. G.K. Butterfield (N.C.)

P.S. I know Bernie Sanders isn’t technically a Democrat…but really…we all know he is one.
