Prior to the 2018 midterm elections, a movement among blacks to â€œexitâ€ the Democratic Party â€” nicknamed â€œBlexitâ€ â€” began as more and more began to realize that the Donkey Party had not done anything for them except foment misery and poverty while perpetuating dependence on big government.
â€œBlexit is a Renaissance,â€ movement champion Candace OwensÂ said in an interviewÂ withÂ Fox NewsÂ in late October. â€œBlexit is the black exit from the Democratic Party. Itâ€™s the black exit from permanent victimhood, the black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America.â€
The movement she helped popularize was similar to another dubbed #WalkAway, which was founded by Brandon Straka, a gay New York-based actor who was a regular supporter of the Democratic Party until it morphed into all of the things he disliked.Â
â€œI know there are millions of other people who are feeling exactly the same way Iâ€™m feeling too, that their party has left them, that the Democratic Party has become a party of rage and hate and lies and the liberal media machine that backs them up,â€ Straka toldÂ Fox NewsÂ and national radio hostÂ Mark Levin last week.
Now, yet another movement to abandon the party comprised of people who were once solid Democratic voters â€” Jews â€” has begun, and for similar reasons: The party no longer represents them. In fact, many believe, todayâ€™s Democratic Party is morphing into something more akin to Adolph Hitlerâ€™s Nazi Party.
As reported byÂ Conservative Tribune, the nascent movement is dubbed â€œJexodusâ€ and, according to its website, states, â€œWe are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left.â€
â€œProgressives, Democrats, and far too many old-school Jewish organizations take our support for granted. After all, weâ€™re Jewish, and Jews vote for Democrats. Until today,â€Â the website continued.
Jexodus comes as an increasing number of Democratic Leftists scorn, shun, and chastise Jews with anti-Semitic attacks and financial punishment. In 2005,Â a movement called Boycott, Divestment, and SanctionsÂ (BDS) began as a means of working â€œto end international supportâ€ for Israelâ€™s alleged â€œoppression of Palestinians.â€
Another movement calledÂ Divestment from IsraelÂ is a campaign to use economic boycotts to â€œpressure Israelâ€ to end its â€œoccupation of Palestinian territoriesâ€ that were captured during the 1967 war.
In the U.S., a new crop of freshmen Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly drawn the ire of Republicans and even some in their own party for repeated instances of anti-Semitism. One of them is of Palestinian descent â€” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). Shortly after winning her election, sheÂ decided to foregoÂ a traditional congressional delegation to Israel for new members sponsored by Israeli lobbying organization AIPAC. Instead, Tlaib announced she would instead lead a delegation to the Israeli-occupied West Bank, which the U.K.â€™sÂ IndependentÂ called â€œunprecedented.â€
Another is Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). She recently suggested that some lawmakers (Republicans, mostly) have more of an allegiance to Israel than their own country â€” a statement which drew immediate condemnation and outrage from the GOP and her own party leadership.
She was rebuked last week â€” sort of â€” when the House voted to approve a resolution condemning â€œhateâ€ â€” anti-Semitism, sure, but also â€œracismâ€ and â€œIslamophobia.â€ Though Omarâ€™s comments were solely responsible for the resolution, her name wasnâ€™t even mentioned, which drew scathing condemnation of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) fromÂ Fox NewsÂ host Judge Janine Pirro.
â€œPresident Trump was right when he said the democrat party is now the anti-Israel party. Donâ€™t forget Nancy, history has proven over and over when you appease to anti-Semitic sentiment, the worst happens,â€ she wrote on Twitter.Â
Left-wing Democratic extremism is responsible for Jexodus â€” and Blexit, and #WalkAway. As the partyâ€™s leaders lose what remains of their minds, the partyâ€™s traditional base will continue to bolt.
