Bye, bye Bowman

On June 25, shortly before 11 PM, incumbent Congressman Jamaal Bowman was declared the 42-58% loser in his Democratic primary battle for New York’s 16th District. He had been the poster person for the anti-Israel, Squad-member, progressive wing of the Democratic Party, and was supported by the likes of far-left Senator Bernie Sanders and the self-promoting AOC.

Following the anguish of Israel’s October 7 pogrom, he forged an alliance with the Israel-haters and embedded claims of Israel’s genocide into his campaign pitches. Simply, he was a Justice Democrat and full-throated Jew-hating Squad member. For all this, he became the target of AIPAC’s muscular PAC as well as other Israel supporting political affiliations.

In a self-pitying rant at a recent rally, he screamed out “People ask me why I got a foul mouth. What am I supposed to do? You’re coming after me! You’re coming after my family! You’re coming after my children! I’m not supposed to fight back?” Congressman Bowman, Israelis, with their backs to the sea, they have lived for 75 years facing savages at all their borders who were really “coming” for their families.

Soon to be just “Mr.” Bowman, when you finally leave your Congressional office, the one near your favorite fire alarm, take some time to review the GoPro evidence of what horrors occurred on October 7. You got played by the progressives, and publicly you acted like a child having a tantrum. You had four years of opportunity to lead and instead you offended, and you divided.

Bye, bye Mr. Bowman.
