You really can be Progressive AND Zionist!


I was looking at the vote count for H.R. 8034, which happened April 20th. “Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024

I compared the “Yea” votes to the roll call of members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus

Some people say that you can’t support Israel and call yourself Progressive, or they say you are not a Progressive if you favor Israel. Well, GUESS WHAT?!?!?

There are 95 members of the House who are also members of the Progressive Caucus. On H.R. 8034, SIXTY of them voted “YEA”, Two “Present” and Thirty-Three voted “NAY.”

That means that a majority of Progressive House members believe you can support Israel and be a Progressive as well.

Someone on the Humboldt Progressives Face Book group said that Progressive Zionist is an oxymoron. I guess that someone was WRONG.
