Virginia: Democrats nominate virulent Jew-hater for Congressional seat

The Democrats’ vicious Jew-hatred is on full display in the nomination of Leslie Cockburn for Congress. The party of treason is home to the Jew-haters and racists. It is quite a feat for a Democrat politician running for Congress to debase and defile the Democrat Party even more than it already was, but Leslie Cockburn manages to do so. The libel that Israel controls U.S. foreign policy used to be the province of kooks shouting on streetcorners. Now it’s mainstream Democrat Party politics. The Democrat Party is a rogues gallery of racists, demagogues, and antisemites. This is what we have come to expect from the Democrat Party and its running dogs in the enemedia. And Cockburn knows that the mainstream media will have her back while she tries to drum up the Nazi vote.

FARMVILLE — Partisan sparring began within hours of Leslie Cockburn receiving the Democratic nomination for the 5th Congressional District race.

Saturday afternoon, after the Democrats’ convention in Farmville, the Republican Party of Virginia sent out a news release calling her an anti-Semite.

The accusation is based on “Dangerous Liaison: The Inside Story of the U.S.-Israeli Covert Relationship,” a book Cockburn and her husband, Andrew, published in 1991. It examines the relationship between the United States and Israel and alleges the two nations have contributed to international instability.

The RPV release said Cockburn’s book advocated the belief that Israel controls America’s foreign policy, an idea the release describes as “inherently anti-Semitic.” Also contained in the release is a statement from Jay Ipson, a Holocaust survivor and co-founder of Richmond’s Holocaust Museum.

“Cockburn and the Democrats want to take away Israel’s ability to defend itself,” he said.

Louise Bruce, campaign manager for Cockburn, disagreed with the RPV’s accusations.

“Leslie has dedicated her career to speaking truth to power and standing up to racism, anti-Semitism and corporate special interests that take advantage of everyday people,” she said.

The campaign office of incumbent Rep. Tom Garrett, R-Buckingham, said it would not make a comment on Cockburn’s nomination, deferring to the RPV’s release….
