Leftists have gone so wildly insane that their coalition is unraveling. The latest evidence for this involves a Christmas party — hosted not by the GOP but by Detroit Democrats in the 13th Congressional District — that was stormed and attacked by pro-Palestinian protesters. According to World Israel News:
The agitators, members of the Palestinian Youth Movement and the Party for Socialism and Liberation, first chanted and banged on the windows, then stormed into the bar, disrupting the event. They were repeatedly asked to leave, but refused, and started physically confronting the party attendees.
Pushing and shoving began, with protesters shouting at the revelers.
Democrat party activist Bobbie Johnson was punched in the face and hospitalized with two black eyes. “They came in here – they bust me in my head!” she said.
The melee left attendees “bloodied, bruised and in ER,” according to the New York Post:
The brawl even featured 91-year-old former Detroit police commissioner Bernice Smith hitting protesters with a cane.
The Daily Mail quoted an anonymous “black activist” who sustained two black eyes as stating:
‘Them Arabs in motherf***ing Detroit tried to kill me!’
Chaos broke out at the 13th Congressional Democrats’ Christmas party Saturday.
A woman was bloodied and called on “black men” to “stand the f*ck up” and fight back against “the Arabs” who crashed the event.

Imagine if a white person said those words about Arabs. Whatever happened to the Left’s self-proclaimed foundational principles of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, which their proponents claim will bring world peace and unity, all while demonizing whites and pretending that there is solidarity among non-whites — blacks, Arabs, and, in fact, all people of color? It’s a big lie, and always was.
Indeed, racism is rampant in the Arab world — a reality most vividly illustrated by the fact that blacks are still held as slaves in Mauritania, Libya, Algeria and Sudan. Crossing geographical borders doesn’t necessarily transform people’s cultures, attitudes and hostilities.
The Detroit incident has not only exposed the growing antagonism between the black and Arab communities, but it also brings to light the increasing fractures in the Left’s coalition. Fractures in the Democrat party and its base are growing amid the heated emotions of Israel’s war in Gaza.
Take, for instance, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She is herself a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and is rabidly anti-Israel. A 2019 article in Vox asserted that AOC “is more in line with the party’s base than establishment Democrats might think.” Or maybe not. The Detroit brawl exposed divisions among leftists that carry larger implications for Democrats nationwide: it pitted mainstream Democrats against Socialist Democrats, and Israel-supporting Democrats vs. pro-Palestinian Democrats.
It is worth noting that the fracas also pitted the radical woke agenda (which includes LGBTQ) against the Islamic expansionary agenda. The two cannot be reconciled on many levels. The unholy alliance, as David Horowitz has called it, between the Left and Islam is merely a politically expedient alliance of convenience. All is not well, and this alliance is not at all what it has been imagined to be in the Left’s utopian delusion.
