Democrat Sean CastenIlhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the “Squad” are defining the Democrat Party heading into the 2020 Presidential Election.

And Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are quickly realizing they have a disaster on their hands.

Things took a turn for the worse and what this top Democrat said about a wounded Navy SEAL will leave you speechless.

Democrat Congressman Sean Casten represents Illinois’ Sixth Congressional District.

Casten defeated Republican incumbent Peter Roskam in the 2018 midterm elections as part of the so-called “Blue Wave.”

Like many freshman Democrats representing swing seats, Casten struggled to deal with the fallout from the continued racist, anti-Semitic and anti-American comments made by Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and the rest of the “Squad” due to their popularity with the Democrat Party base.

This dilemma went viral when during a recent town hall event a constituent pressed Casten to condemn the blatantly anti-Semitic comments made by Omar about how Israel used secret Jewish money to buy off American politicians.

Instead of whacking that softball out of the park and saying Omar’s bigotry had no place in American politics, Casten pivoted into a bizarre rant where Casten slammed Republican Congressman and injured Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw as a racist.

Casten claimed Crenshaw’s racism manifested itself in the form of an amendment preventing non-citizens from voting in American elections.

“The last amendment on the floor that day … came from Dan Crenshaw, the new Republican, the Navy SEAL with the eyepatch,” he said. “He came up with an amendment to say, ‘we’re going to add a rider on this bill that says that illegals can’t vote.’ And I sat there and I said, ‘you know what? You’re not allowed to vote if you’re not a citizen.’ … Why are you doing that? The reason you’re doing that is because you are a racist. Because you are trying to appeal to people who will vote for you if you stand up and oppose brown people,” Casten ranted.

“That’s what we have to stand up to,” the Democrat Congressman continued. “This ain’t about Ilhan Omar. Did she say some unfortunate things? You bet she did. But you know what? She apologized for it.”

Crenshaw responded to Casten’s outrageous smear in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon.

“If Rep. Casten is so deeply offended that our laws prohibit non-citizens from voting in federal elections, then he should be honest with his constituents and let them know how little he values the power of their vote,” Crenshaw told the outlet.

Casten’s insane rant about Crenshaw demonstrates the corner Democrats painted themselves in with regards to the “Squad.”

Omar’s comments are clearly anti-Semitic and indefensible.

Everyone knows that.

Even Sean Casten.

But Casten represents a swing seat and without strong turnout from the Democrat Party base – the vast majority of whom fervently support Ilhan Omar – Casten stands no chance of winning re-election.

So instead of condemning Omar, Democrats like Casten twist themselves into pretzels and end up attacking American war heroes rather than own up to one of the leading lights of their party’s bigotry.
