Watch diverse multicultural monsters defend Hamas in Oakland City Council

It's hard to believe in evil until you see it up close.

Much of the Hamas enthusiasm we’ve seen has been at a distance—shaky camera shots of mobs of rioters, some quick clips of a poster-ripper or a few tweets or videos gleaned from the madness of social media influencers, but here they are given a full forum to speak at the Oakland City Council.

The issue on the table is whether the Oakland City Council will just demand that Israel stop attacking Hamas, misleadingly described as a “ceasefire,” or whether the resolution will also at least condemn Hamas’s mass murder of Israelis.

That brought out a cast of leftists to explain why opposing Hamas is racist, why Israel had it coming and why Hamas didn’t really do it.

It’s instructive to see this because it’s taking place in an official formal environment. There are prepared statements. It’s not an out-of-context clash on social media.

This is evil up close.

And we’re not really allowed to see it. Usually, the media spins, filters and distorts, pretends that these people want a “ceasefire” and are calling for peace and an end to the violence.

Here they are unfiltered.

It’s instructive to watch this because you can see contemporary Nazis up close. They’re real and they dominate the left. These people are not an aberration. If you doubt that, the Oakland City Council voted 6-2 not to condemn Hamas.

This is the base for AOC and the Squad. It’s also a reality we have to deal with. There are people who have been as brainwashed into evil as anything in Maoist China, Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union. They are willing to defend and likely to commit any crime.

We cannot afford to pretend that they don’t exist. It’s hard to believe in evil until you see it up close. It’s real.
