J’accuse… Steny Hoyer just another pol looking for some Benjamins and having divided loyalties. If you are equally loyal to Israel then go home.

Steny Hoyer displayed the hypocrisy of establishment Democrats: They are allowed to attack fellow Democrats as they well please, but we are being ‘divisive’ when we fight for a progressive agenda. Help us fight back with a $3 contribution:
ep. Steny Hoyer, the number two Democrat in the House, came under fire from progressives Sunday night after he used his address at AIPAC’s policy conference to attack left-wing members of his caucus and throw his full support behind a resolution condemning the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement.
“I stand with Israel, proudly and unapologetically,” said the Democrat from Maryland, whose remarks were immediately interpreted as a thinly veiled attack on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). “So, when someone accuses American supporters of Israel of dual loyalty, I say: Accuse me. I am part of a large, bipartisan coalition in Congress supporting Israel. I tell Israel’s detractors: Accuse us.”
“There are 62 freshman Democrats. Not three,” Hoyer added, in an apparent swipe at Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), and Omar.
