Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Joe Biden, reacting to Israel’s decision to deny entry to people who advocate its destruction, said:
“I have always been a stalwart supporter of Israel—a vital partner that shares our democratic values. No democracy should deny entry to visitors based on the content of their ideas—even ideas they strongly object to. And no leader of the free world should encourage them to do so.”
But Joe, if you support Israel’s right to exist as an independent nation, then you concede it has the right to manage its own internal affairs, including deciding who to admit and who to deny. Otherwise, if Israel lacks that power, then it’s not an independent nation, it’s a colony and you’re playing the role of emperor, telling the locals what they can and cannot do. Which is precisely what you accuse President Trump of doing.
So why should I vote for you, and not for him?
The extent to which the Democrats need their supporters to be uninformed morons is frightening.
