On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Assistant Editor Kylee Zempel and Senior Editor Christopher Bedford join Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss this week in politics including Democrat infighting over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s tweets comparing Hamas to the U.S. and Vice President Kamala Harris’s botched responses to questions about the border crisis.
“On the left, at the end of the day, they really do have a have a hard time figuring out what it is they like about the United States of America,” Jashinky said. “And when you sort of lose that foundation for your politics, it’s really hard to have a coherent politics.”
“These guys really do hate the country which makes them very different from a lot of the radical movements,” Bedford said.
While infighting is nothing new, Zempel said she doesn’t think Ilhan Omar’s ideas are “mainstream.”
“I don’t think they’re readily adopted by the Democratic Party,” Zempel said. “…You have these fringe movements, obviously, that have gained traction, infiltrated higher education, lower education, and our media landscape, but I don’t think they represent where a lot of Democratic voters and even candidates are in the rest of the country.”
