Trump supporter Cynthia McKinney:
Former U.S. Representative Cynthia McKinney, a black Democrat from Georgia, said that without massive vote fraud for Joe Biden, Donald Trump won the election.
Blasting “miscreants” in places of authority, McKinney called on Trump to keep fighting to drain the swamp and expose evildoers.
Now it is time for every legal vote to be counted so President Trump’s victory can be certified in the Electoral College, said McKinney
who while supporting Trump (which she had been doing since 2016 when Trump ran against Clinton) nevertheless continued to claim to be an anti-Zionist, is now on the same side as….. AIPAC. Yes, really:
The US’s most powerful pro-Israel lobby group has been accused of putting support for Israel before American democracy after it declared its backing for the election campaigns of three dozen Republican members of Congress who tried to block President Biden’s presidential victory.
But the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (Aipac) has defended the move by saying that support for the Jewish state overrides other issues and that it is “no moment for the pro-Israel movement to become selective about its friends”.
In December, Aipac launched a political action committee that enables it for the first time to spend money directly supporting congressional candidates in this year’s midterm elections. Earlier this month the committee released a list of 120 political endorsements that includes 37 Republicans who voted against certifying Biden’s victory after the January 6 storming of the Capitol.
Among them are two members of Congress, Jim Jordan and Scott Perry, who plotted with Trump’s White House to overturn the election result. Perry has also publicly promoted racist “white replacement” conspiracy theories.
The reason why AIPAC is taking this position is simple:
A poll last year found that half of Democrats want Washington to shift policy toward more support for the Palestinians.
AIPAC knows which way the wind is blowing just as well as we do, and is reacting accordingly:
Although Aipac presents itself as bipartisan, that position has been increasingly tested. It openly opposed President Obama’s demand that Israel freeze expansion of settlements in the occupied territories, widely considered illegal under international law. The group also lobbied Congress on behalf of Israel against Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
Aipac’s move also comes amid stiffening criticism of Israel from human rights groups, including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, which have both recently accused the country of maintaining a form of apartheid over the Palestinians.
The head of Amnesty International’s US office, Paul O’Brien, recently said that when the organisation met with members of congress to discuss its new report, Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians, it found that Aipac had got there first.
“It was an interesting experience for us to introduce a report that was about to be launched in public a week later and to get in 80 different congressional offices a public statement dissociating themselves from the findings of the report in which none of those 80 statements actually disputed the findings of the report, except to say, in broad strokes, we do not believe that this report is motivated for the right reasons or reaches the right conclusions,” he said.
All McKinney had to do was stay ideologically where she was back in the early 2010s, and the Blue mainstream would have come over to her by now. But she made her decision, and will now have to go down in history as just another dupe on the Trump train.
