A responsible news media could pose serious problems for the national Democrat Party in this regard as well. Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz might be forced to explain how she reconciles the NC Democrats’ resolution with her contentions that the “natural home politically for Jewish voters in this country is the Democratic Party,” and that “Israel should never be used as a political football.” Perhaps she could explain a resolution proposed by members of her own party that legitimizes veritable blood libels, even as it demands absolutely nothing in return from the Palestinians.
The president himself might be dragged into this controversy as well. He could be asked to comment on whether or not he agreed with the state party’s resolution that characterizes the Jewish state as an “occupying force,” or whether Israelis live on “expropriated Palestinian lands.” Mr. Obama might be asked if he still maintains his largely unpopular contention that Israel retreat to its militarily indefensible 1967 borders, or reveal whether or not he favors an end to the Gaza blockade that keeps terrorist arms at bay. Or, perhaps Mr. Obama, sensing the larger stakes in play, might be forced to disavow a portion of his own party.
All of this would occur during the Democrat Party’s biggest moment prior to the election. Their convention is scheduled to take place during late August and early September. For better or worse, that’s the time when Americans traditionally begin to pay serious attention to the national election–meaning the chances that this story will get the attention it deserves anywhere other than non-traditional media sources is slim to non-existent.
Mr. Obama is already losing support among American Jews, according to a Gallup poll released earlier this month. And though Democrats would obviously howl if this odious resolution reached critical mass, there is no denying it exists and that a faction of their party supports it. That it has achieved such legitimacy as to be drafted and seriously considered by North Carolina Democrats surely shows how far the party has fallen from the mainstream.
