It’s hard to make out what exactly is being told to Fetterman from the jeering protesters (“You’re a horrible human being,” “Ceasefire” and audible booing were decipherable) but it’s apparent that they were not happy with Fetterman. Fetterman’s response was as brilliant (it is incredibly odd to type those words in that order) as it was simple: He just held up and twirled around an Israeli flag. The Pennsylvania senator further doubled down on his antics when he reached his car, seemingly smirking at the protesters while raising his Israeli flag again. Say what you will about Fetterman, and there is a lot to be said about his policies and actions, but, at the very least, the man isn’t getting swept up in the anti-Semitic hysteria that has seized his party. Look at Democrat lawmakers like Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. Objectively speaking, their far-left policies are every bit as bad as the ones that Fetterman champions — but at least the Pennsylvania senator doesn’t (outwardly) harbor a deep hatred and resentment toward Jewish people. Fetterman, to his minimal credit — again — has wholeheartedly supported Israel and its right to defend itself from barbaric Hamas terrorists. The Pennsylvania senator put out a statement shortly after the horrific and bloody invasion by Hamas on Oct. 7. “We now know this was a wide-scale, premeditated, cowardly, terrorist campaign against Israeli civilians that also claimed the lives of American citizens,” Fetterman said. He added: “I unequivocally support any necessary military, intelligence, and humanitarian aid to Israel. The United States has a moral obligation to be in lockstep with our ally as they confront this threat. “I also fully support Israel neutralizing the terrorists responsible for this barbarism.” So yes, Fetterman may support transgender youths, abortion and all manner of far-left debauchery … but at least he’s not anti-Semitic.
