Senator John Fetterman, a Democrat from Pennsylvania, has distanced himself from the far-left wing of his party, expressing that he no longer identifies as a “progressive.”

His support for Israel and a secure border has drawn criticism from progressives, leading him to reject what he calls his party’s “bizarre” purity tests.

Fetterman has faced backlash for his stance on Israel and immigration, with some on the left expressing betrayal. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)

He has emphasized the importance of a secure border and has defended Israel as the only “progressive nation” in the Middle East regarding LGBTQ rights.

“It’s just a place where I’m not,” Fetterman said.

“I don’t feel like I’ve left the label; it’s just more that it’s left me.”

“What I have found out over the last couple years is that the right, and now the left, are hoping that I die,” he said.

“There are ones that are rooting for another blood clot. They have both now been wishing that I die.”

“I’m not really sure what part of any of this would be a surprise if anyone’s been paying attention,” he said of his opinion on Israel.

“I do find it confusing where the very left progressives in America don’t seem to want to support really the only progressive nation in the region that really embraces the same kind of values I would expect we would want as a society,” he added.

“I hope Democrats can understand that it isn’t xenophobic to be concerned about the border,” he said.

“It’s a reasonable conversation, and Democrats should engage.”

“I don’t think it’s unreasonable to have a secured border. I would never put Dreamers in harm’s way, or support any kind of cruelty or mass expulsion of hundreds of thousands of people. But it’s a reasonable conversation to talk about the border,” he said.
