Hamas depends on ‘useful Western idiots’ for sympathy which may help the GOP in 2024

Support from “useful Western idiots” in America is a likely downfall for the reliant Hamas “death cult” suggested Victor Davis Hanson while predicting a boon for the GOP.

The same day that terrorist sympathizers gathered near New York City’s Rockefeller Center to attempt to disrupt the annual tree-lighting ceremony, the senior fellow at the Hoover Institution published an essay titled, “What Were the Hamas Monsters Thinking?”

Therein, the scholar not only laid out the “barbarity” of the jihadist perpetrators behind the Oct. 7 slaughter in Israel but also how “Hamas in the Middle East and its enablers in Europe and America have done more to harm the Palestinian cause and the idea of Middle Eastern immigration to the West than at any time since 9/11.”

In making his case for why he believes Hamas thought it would be excused for the heinous terror attack, Hanson first pointed to the supposition that “anti-Semitism was prevalent throughout the West” before asserting “Hamas relies on useful Western idiots.”

“It understands its terrorists repel the majority of Americans. But it figures Western and globalist institutions–academia, the media, popular culture–in their wealth, ignorance, and self-importance, alleviate guilt and find resonance by mouthing the shibboleths of the ‘underdog,'” the scholar detailed.

Of note, the Hoover Institution senior fellow noted “the Palestinian cause has fused with the leftwing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusions industry.”

“Thus Hamas becomes the Middle-East counterpart to BLM, aggrieved minorities, and, more preposterously, the trans/gay/feminist movement. Meanwhile, Israelis are recalibrated as the demonized Western ‘colonialist’ white supremacists,” he went on.

Along with the tree-lighting, disruptions at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Black Friday sales and elsewhere added emphasis to the reality that the radical sympathizers were laying the groundwork for their own dispersal at the direction of an increasingly likely conservative administration resulting from the 2024 election.

“Shouting for mass death ‘From the River to the Sea’ does not endear the pro-Hamas crowd to half of their fellow Democrats, much less unabashedly strutting their anti-Semitism,” wrote Hanson. “The current over support for Hamas, in other words, has revealed to the nation the bankruptcy of the entire pro-Hamas/DEI base of the Democratic Party and will do much to ensure a conservative president in 2024.”

“And that president,” he added reiterating a point made on Fox News, “will likely deport anyone on a green card or student visa promoting Hamas terrorism, or violating U.S. law, while ensuring a travel ban from terrorist-supporting regimes in the Middle East. Such measures will win overwhelming public support, despite media and academic outrage.”

Much like what has played out in Ireland where legislators aimed to crack down on free speech to counter unrest stemming from rampant issues surrounding immigration sans cultural assimilation, Hanson argued a rise in “restrictionist politicians throughout Europe” reflected “growing anger that Europeans are hated by the very people who seek them out and wish to destroy their Enlightenment institutions by manipulating and discrediting them.”

“…admitting migrants from Palestine or Gaza, or their supporters,” he wrote of the growing sentiment, “is a veritable death wish.”

Hanson went on to conclude, “Just as Israel realizes that there is no living with Hamas killers, so the West is learning that it can no longer sustain universities that despise the culture that nourishes it or Middle Eastern immigrants, visiting students, and residents that use the gift of freedom and tolerance to promote their abhorrent anti-Semitism, violence, intolerance–and, yes, hatred of their generous hosts.”
