Tlaib And Omar Go Full Throttle
Tlaib And Omar Go Full Throttle
Anti-Semites are gonna anti-Semite. Did you think that Representatives Tlaib and Omar couldn’t top their shenanigans from this latest “going to Palestine” and “I just wanna see grandma” stunt? You’d be wrong.
Apparently, Iran hosts a thing called the “Holocaust International Cartoon Contest.” It’s just as disgusting as you think. And then Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar both shared an anti-Semitic cartoon on their social media posts, drawn by the 2006 “winner” of said contest.
Oof. Looks like both Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib shared this awful Carlos Latuff cartoon in Instagram stories yesterday. In 2006, Latuff came in second in Iran's International Holocaust Cartoon Contest, which is a thing that exists, in case you thought the TL couldn't get any worse. pic.twitter.com/uwyBPAsz7T

Between Omar straight up lying about all that she and Tlaib wanted to do in “Palestine” (claiming they would be visiting government officials when they had requested no such meetings and had nothing of the sort listed on their official itinerary), and Tlaib refusing to go see her grandmother (and now Tlaib’s grandma is saying “May God ruin” Trump), it seems that these poor, misunderstood Congresswomen are having a terrible time convincing the world that they aren’t hateful anti-Semites. I’m shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you.
Even Bill Maher – yes, THAT Bill Maher – is saying that the Democrats are in deep if they are going to let Tlaib and Omar promote BDS.
Maher on Friday night pointed to scrutiny over past comments from Omar, suggesting the decision by the Israeli government to not welcome them into the country made sense.”
“Congresswoman Omar has said things like, ‘It’s all about the Benjamins,’ ‘Israel has hypnotized the world,’ ‘May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,’ ” Maher noted.”
“She apologized for it, but it’s out there: Jews control the world, control the money,” he said, adding of the lawmakers: “I can see why they don’t get a hero’s welcome.”
So what are the Democrats going to do now that Tlaib and Omar are exposed as anti-Semitic frauds? Well, Nancy Pelosi is clearly in a bind because she knows that The Squad’s radicalism is completely capable of fracturing the Democratic caucus if she can’t get them under control. But that reportedly isn’t stopping other Democrats from tying themselves to The Squad and hoping they don’t all sink.
Senior Democratic members of Congress are considering action against top emissaries of the Israeli government and the Trump admin for their roles in Israel's decision to bar Reps. Omar and Tlaib from entering the country. the Miami Herald reports.https://t.co/JPbiq4trkL

Oh yes, please start investigating the ambassador’s “dual loyalty” with an inspector general investigation. What could possibly go wrong, Democrats?
About a dozen lawmakers, including senior Jewish members, began discussions on Friday morning over ways to communicate a “deep lack of confidence and trust” in Israel’s ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, and the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, according to two sources familiar with the discussions.
The group is weighing issuing a statement of no confidence in Dermer and opening an inspector general investigation into Friedman’s conduct, the sources said.
Go ahead, Democrats. You do this, and Donald Trump will make you wear Tlaib and Omar’s actions all through the 2020 election season like a bad case of acne that you refuse to treat. If you decide to watch them go full throttle on their anti-Semitism, be prepared to reap the consequences.
