Springtime for leftists
Springtime for leftists

What happens in America does not stay in America. It moves to Israel – politically speaking. Or maybe it’s the other way, from Israel to America.

So, they haven’t toppled Benjamin Netanyahu as of the moment, not for lack of trying, but they have snatched for themselves second prize.

Sara Netanyahu has been indicted on charges of fraud and breach of trust.

This has been coming for years, around the same time the prime minister himself has been under investigation for alleged corruption (he was charged by police for misconduct but not indicted) – and it is not for us to touch this third rail of legalities, but only to marvel at what it’s like in both countries when Leftists go on the warpath.

We’re like twins.

Trump has been under withering scrutiny since he took office, and so it’s been for Netanyahu from day one.

For both leaders, success doesn’t count, so long as they wear the wrong label. Their enemies won’t give them a break even if they score win after win.

Progressives don’t like to lose, and when they do, they do get nasty. Through Robert Mueller and the entire left-wing media apparatus, they will probe the legitimacy of your election and failing that, they will go after your wife and kids, as Peter Fonda just did in a tweet so vile, the Secret Service had to be called in.

Yes, he apologized. It’s what they do after they’ve been caught sharing their true feelings, so on top of derangement, include hypocrisy as their daily double.

Before that it was Robert De Niro, and before that…well, all of them, or nearly so.

For Liberals, around here anyway, anything goes. Nothing is sacred. Courtesy of the Left, this is not the best of times in America.

The name-calling has been running on steroids.

No First Lady has ever encountered this. Never. Ever.
We don’t know if Mrs. Netanyahu was driven to tears over her legal difficulties, but we can be sure that Mrs. Trump was shaken by tweets calling for her son’s abduction.

No First Lady has ever encountered this. Never. Ever.

She never signed on for this – and no feminists have rallied to her side. Is it any different for Sara Netanyahu?

Or are women sisters only if they vote and march a certain way?

From a distance, we can’t say that this is just another day in Israel, though on the latest for Sara Netanyahu, there must be cheering wherever Leftists gather.

The figuring must be that since they got her indicted, he must be next.

But it is just another day In America…another day when Liberals call everybody else a Nazi over the immigration snafu.

It is not the migrant kids they love so much, it is Trump they hate so much. They will try anything and use everything to destroy him…him and the millions who voted for him.

Those millions are the GOP silent majority that won’t remain silent if Leftists keep it going at this rate of vulgar animosity.

There will be a reckoning.

Speaking of karma, Argentina’s national soccer team got clobbered by Croatia at the World Cup…same team that blew off Israel a week earlier. There’s a bigger lesson in this.
