The Democrats and media allies are going for a 4-cushion bank shot. We saw Omar using her classic antisemitism. Democrats now claim antisemitism is criticizing George Soros or Michael Bloomberg, because they are Jewish. Even anti-globalism. That doesn’t work.
It’s a wacky attempt to gain from Democrats being antisemitic, or condoning it.
But we don’t criticize Soros for being Jewish. He doesn’t seem to have an affinity for Israel or Jews himself. He’s a puppet master of the left, funding the far left. His disdain for the USA and our sovereignty is an issue, with his obsessive globalism loyalties. It has nothing to do with being Jewish. They would love to take Soros off the table.
This idea came floating out of CNN about a week ago. They said since Omar’s statements, now conservatives will have to drop all their complaining against Soros and, before he announced he was not running, even Bloomberg. But being Jewish was never at issue with either of them. That is not the criticism — globalism resistance is not antisemitism.
However, when Obamar uses her screeds it is against Jews and Israel — or those who support it — that is at the center of her arguments. What nonsense. And for media, especially CNN, carrying this attack is ridiculous. Anyway they can minimize Democrats’ anti-Jewish platform. Then on Fox, Jessica Tarlov spewed that same talking point.
It doesn’t work and I refuse to take Soros off the table for their convenience.
Then they turn around to pass a resolution watered down to condemn all forms of hatred, including toward Muslims. What tripe. The whole purpose of this was antisemitism of the Left and their failure to say or do anything about it. What do you expect from the left?
They know it is an endemic problem of the Left. Only last December, 2018, CNN was forced to fire Marc Lamont Hill for broad slurs at the UN against Israel. Hill tried to claim he spent his life fighting against antisemitism. Then three months later here we are.
As Trump said at CPAC last week, “these people are sick!”
