It takes a lot for Democrats to break ranks and condemn one of their own.
Pennsylvania Democrat Senator John Fetterman found out where that line was.
And Democrats condemned John Fetterman after this public outburst.
John Fetterman is a down-the-line socialist who always makes sure he is in the same fight as the left’s radical base.
But there is one exception to this rule.
And that’s Fetterman’s support for the State of Israel.
Fetterman condemned “Squad” members Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for pro-Hamas rhetoric.
And Fetterman hung pictures up of the Americans Hamas seized as hostages in the October 7 terrorist attack even though Joe Biden and the media pretend these innocent victims don’t exist for political reasons.
During a campaign event prior to the recent elections, an unhinged Hamas supporter confronted Fetterman over Fetterman’s refusal to break with Israel.
The Hamas supporter cited the unverified casualty numbers in Gaza in calling on Fetterman to denounce Israel.
“Four thousand-plus dead children in Palestine, 9,000-plus dead civilians!” the Hamas supporter exclaimed.
“Get off the stage! Get off the stage! I don’t care,” the man added.
Fetterman responded by joking that the impairment he suffered from his near-fatal stroke left him unable to hear the man.
“The joke is on you. I had a stroke. I can’t fully understand what you are saying,” Fetterman shot back.

This joke didn’t make liberals happy one bit.
The New Republic’s Tori Otten slammed Fetterman for using his impairment as a point of humor to dismiss the left’s cause célèbre in Gaza after liberals went to the mat to defend Fetterman from Republican attacks that the stroke left him a vegetable who wasn’t mentally or physically capable of serving in the Senate.
“Normally a darling of younger voters and internet users for his quippy reactions, Fetterman’s response this time leaves a bad taste in the mouth. He spent the second half of his campaign and a fair amount of his term fending off rumors that he is mentally and physically incapable of holding office. He can’t have it both ways and use his stroke recovery as an excuse to ignore comments he doesn’t like,” Otten wrote.
John Fetterman is with the left 99.99 percent of the time.
But because the .01 percent where Fetterman breaks with the left is on Israel, liberals are ready to wash their hands of him.
