“Elizabeth Warren warns of ‘demographic realities, births… bearing down on Israel’ — racist code for Palestinian babies”

 

That is simply terrible.

Here’s Elizabeth Warren appealing to people on the basis of an idea advocated by some of Israel’s worst rogues.

Netanyahu referred once to the Palestinians as “a ticking time bomb in our midst,” and his remark is less vicious than what some other Israelis have said openly on the topic.

You cannot, by any measure, be regarded as liberal when you talk this way, but the truth is that that is the case for so many of America’s “liberals.” They cannot genuinely be regarded as liberals.

I like to say, there are no liberals in America because you simply cannot have both a decent and humane country and a global empire. Classical liberalism and empire are opponents, not allies.

And it is a very rare American political figure who speaks against America’s empire or the work of its destructive, resource-absorbing military.

That’s certainly true for Warren, who has supported its ugly budgets among other acts, but it is also largely true even for the otherwise-more-appealing Bernie Sanders.

Well, I’ve never been impressed by Elizabeth Warren, and now I’m even less impressed. Readers might enjoy:
