The United States Congress is comprised of representatives from all of the States of the United States of America. It is the most representative body of the changes that are going on in the United States today. It is very indicative of the swing to the radical left that is occurring in America today. It is actually a major sociological shift that may signify a major downward turn that will affect the lives of all Americans.

Nearly 100 years ago, there were members of the House of Representatives who would get up and say loudly that there are too many Jews who are occupying seats of power in Hollywood. They would couch their anti-Jewish statements in anti-Communist rhetoric. But in truth, they were basically expounding age-old anti-Semitic accusations – just in a more modern form. Today, the new anti-Semitic rhetoric is nearly always focused on the State of Israel. It has become stylish to accuse the State of Israel as being a foreign occupier and a denier of basic human rights of an ancient Palestinian people.
This new stylish form of anti-Semitism has found many supporters – even among US Jews. After all, if it has become part of the acceptable liberal and enlightened narrative that is supported by masses of people who know very little about how good Arabs have it in the State of Israel. Therefore, anti-Semites like Rashida Tlaib and Occasio-Cortez are not roundly denounced by their own Democrat party. Moreover, they are a growing trend, where nearly every 2 years, their supporters will probably continue to grow. The United States of America is not merely being polarized between the radical left and the newly Trumpian right. It has a growing anti-Israel element that is unaware that it has become part of the newest form of anti-Semitism in the modern world.
