“The Jewish factor, it’s money.”
Good news from the White House. Biden courageously condemns all antisemitism not involving him, his political allies, or, his political movement.
“Silence is complicity,” Biden said in remarks at the event Monday night, referring to rising antisemitism. “I will not be silent. America will not be silent.”
Last week, Biden formed a new interagency group to develop a national strategy to combat antisemitism. The president also called out “political leaders” who have not strongly denounced antisemitism, saying that their “silence is complicity,” in comments earlier this month.
Also, despite condemnations from Jewish groups, Biden nominated this antisemite as ambassador to Brazil.
Elizabeth Frawley Bagley, in a 1998 interview, a full copy of which was obtained by the Free Beacon, bemoaned “the influence of the Jewish lobby because there is major money involved.” She went on to claim “the Democrats always tend to go with the Jewish constituency on Israel and say stupid things, like moving the capital to Jerusalem always comes up.” Support for these Israel-related issues are due to “the Jewish factor, it’s money.”
Silence may or may not be complicity, but nominating an antisemite is definitely complicity.
The media carefully avoided covering the story with a handful of exceptions. After some initial pushback in the Senate, the White House doubled down and got her through. Why? Well just look at her bio.
Ambassador Bagley has been an early and active supporter of VP Biden’s presidential campaign. She served at the top level of the Biden Finance Council, was Co-Chair of Catholics for Biden, and a member of the foreign policy working group on Europe, Ambassadors for Biden, Women for Biden, and Lawyers for Biden. She also served as a surrogate speaker in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina and was a Florida poll watcher with the Biden Voter Protection team.
Bagley did everything besides tie Biden’s shoes. And Biden is complicit. Just as he is with Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and a whole host of antisemites in his party.
