Fired-up John Fetterman, in latest non-woke take, rips hypocrisy of South Africa going to int'l court over Israeli 'genocide'

Democratic U.S. Sen. John Fetterman kept up his eye-opening, non-woke behavior Wednesday when he blasted the hypocrisy of South Africa going to international court against Israel for the Jewish nation's "genocide" against Palestinians in Gaza.

What are the details?

Speaking at the Orthodox Union Advocacy Center, the Pennsylvania lawmaker — donned in his standard shorts and hoodie — first took some time ripping into terror group Hamas over its deadly surprise attack against Israel in October, the Washington Examiner said.

An angry Fetterman called Hamas "a group of cowards" and said its members "hide in tunnels, they hide behind civilians, they attack, kill, and mutilate children [and] women!" He also demanded that pro-Palestinian advocates "stop talking about proportion" in regard to Israel's military response to Hamas.

“They shot their best shot on Oct. 7, and they would have taken more lives if they could have, but they couldn’t do it,” Fetterman added.

Shifting gears, Fetterman told the crowd that while he was on the subject of Hamas' "genocide," South Africa has plenty to answer for in that department — yet it's still going to trial against Israel at the International Court of Justice.

"Maybe South Africa ... ought to sit this one out when it comes to criticizing the behavior of other nations!" Fetterman barked. "Sit it out!”

The Examiner said Fetterman calling out South Africa referred to the murder of white farmers there, which led to riots alleging the murders were evidence of attempted genocide.

Anything else?

Fetterman has been getting heat from progressives over his headline-grabbing, non-woke takes of late:

  • In December, Fetterman declared he's "not a progressive," reportedly called the gigantic number of border crossings "astonishing," and said that such concerns aren't xenophobic, and repeated his belief that Democratic New Jersey lawmaker Bob Menendez should be expelled from the U.S. Senate.
  • In November, Fetterman trolled anti-Israel protesters being handcuffed at the U.S. Capitol by walking past them while waving a miniature Israeli flag.
  • In October, Fetterman called out lawmakers from his own party who jumped the gun to blame Israel for a Gaza hospital bombing when it was soon revealed Hamas was behind the deadly act.
  • That same month, Fetterman also announced he would highlight the identities of those Hamas abducted: "My office will display every last one of the innocent Israelis kidnapped by Hamas until they are safely returned home. We won't stop sharing their stories until then."
  • Fetterman also said in October, "Now is not the time to talk about a ceasefire. We must support Israel in efforts to eliminate the Hamas terrorists who slaughtered innocent men, women, and children. Hamas does not want peace, they want to destroy Israel. We can talk about a ceasefire after Hamas is neutralized."
