The Palestinians and the BLM have a lot in common. They're always claiming to be the victims when it comes to encounters that end up being violent. But it's almost always shown to be false.
Perhaps this is not unusual since they run with the same leftist propaganda crowd and tend to support each other.
We saw that again with the attack today on Israel with rockets fired from Gaza.
Who was out taking the side of the Palestinians? Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who argued it somehow was Israel's fault that they responded after they were attacked.
“Israeli airstrikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism,” Omar declared. “Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don't exist to protect Palestinian civilians. It's unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid.”
Here's a radical thought for Omar. How about the Palestinians stop attacking Israel and Israelis? Not to mention I wouldn't trust any Palestinian report of anyone being killed either.
But a sane Democrat (it seems there are so few of them), former New York State representative Dov Hikind, just unloaded on Omar for her propaganda. He posted a troubling video of Palestinians trying to stone an Israeli for the crime of being in a car near them. Shades of the BLM and their practice of going after motorists.
Good for Dov Hikind for not holding back on her propaganda.
Palestinians were trying to stone this guy in his car. They'd already left him profusely bleeding. Had it not been for the hero officer who came on the run, the driver would likely be dead.
But Palestinians are already spinning the story, claiming the driver hit one of them. The driver did hit one of them – after they were already trying to stone him, as he was trying to get away from them. The man the driver hit didn't appear injured.
But Hikind didn't leave it there. Hikind leveled Omar with a little trending Twitter linkage.
Sometimes algorithms are just perfectly aligned.
