Fuck this fucking fuck too
It's 100% antisemitism, deliberate or not. Dual loyalty is literally something Jews have been killed over, are killed over.
Hes a known white supremacist. I doubt the jewish community is gunna get hung up on a 'technicalllyuhyh' when blowing nazi bullhorns.
to be fair Omar and AOC said that many progressive Jews reached out and did just that, people on here just thought they had to be lying because they were stuck in everything is either black or white mode
Trump supporters are irrelevant. that % of people are lost to humanity. They aren't a barometer of anything besides a reason for decent human beings to get out and vote. Those opinions and actions weigh far heavier.
Exactly like how Omar wasn't trying to be antisemitic, it just came off that way. However, we all know Trump hates Jews. Unless they are authoritarian leaders.
I guess I'm wondering then... what group are you imagining? apolitical Jewish Americans who weren't quite sold either way on Trump? that can't be a very big group
And Omar isn't the POTUS with a known track record of supporting white supremacists by literally calling them good people.
I said decent human beings.
Unfortunately what I expect is one of his psychotic supporters to take this as evidence Jews are a fifth column and commit a hate crime.
You don't have to be jewish to realize the dangerous rhetoric is worsening by the day.. I mean if you believe that I said IMPEAcHMEANT IS iMMEINTINES.. then no. Thats not what I said. In a world where the President is using nazi rhetoric in the open, yeah, something needs to happen. Whatever that something is, time will tell. If not, the country is a wrap. Its just going to escalate the violence that is already happening.
I fear that even when he'll be gone there will be lots of scars within the american people, consequences of everything he did and enabled during his tenure. This will take a lot of time to heal.
Won't move the needle even a little bit. You could add it to the ever growing list of stupid and shitty things he has said. Thanks to the 24 hour news cycle, we'll be talking abut something else he's said/done by this time next week.
eh... it's no secret that I really, really, really strongly reject the idea that Omar's comments in February and March were in any way, shape, or form antisemitic, and I'll continue to do so (particularly as a Jew who rejects Zionism), but saying that those false accusations of antisemitism are "to blame for everything that's happened since then," as opposed to "merely" legitimizing and feeding into right-wing bigotry against Omar and Tlaib, is overstating the case
Attacking Democrats gives the Media way more views, I think.
