Washington DC and The Holy Land>Tlaib, Omar Promote Anti-Semitic Cartoonist’s Work
T-post Tom 12:57 PM 08-19-2019
Anti-Semitic Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) promoted a cartoon on Saturday from a cartoonist who has openly mocked victims of the Holocaust.

The Jewish Daily Forward's Batya Ungar-Sargon, who noticed the cartoon and who created it, wrote on Twitter: "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 [this timeline of events] couldn't get any worse."

"Latuff has a history of anti-Semitic drawings accusing Israeli lobbyists of controlling U.S. foreign policy," The Free Beacon reports. "He has also drawn criticism for invoking and minimizing the Holocaust in criticizing Israeli policies towards Palestinians. ... He also defended his second place finish in the 'International Holocaust Cartoon Contest' saying, 'I saw this contest as both a good chance for denouncing the suffering of the Palestinian people before the eyes of world public opinion ... '"

Omar and Tlaib's decision to share the cartoon sparked backlash online from users who highlighted some of the vile cartoons produced by Latuff.

The Reagan Battalion tweeted: "So @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib just shared this cartoon by Carlos Latuff who is well known for his work mocking Jewish victims of the holocaust. WILL A SINGLE DEMOCRAT SPEAK UP?"

This latest incident involving Omar, Tlaib, and their anti-Semitism comes on the heels of Israel banning them from entering the country last week after it was revealed that they were planning on meeting with groups that support terrorism against Israel, including one that has promoted screeds from neo-Nazis.

They have no reason to hide it. Nobody will hold them accountable because they'll cry racism and islamophobia to evade valid criticism as they always do.

What exactly do these two do to serve the district and people who elected them? And wouldn’t they be able to serve much more effectively if they didn’t spend so much of their time advocating against Israel?
Or is that what they were elected to do?

Well, Omar was elected by a very muslimy district that exports the highest number of ISIS fighters in the US.

:-) she even tries to protect them when they return from beheading Yazidi women and come back to the US.

They're both idiots who don't appear to understand their place - freshman members of Congress. They don't seem to understand that they don't get to dictate party policy to the other Democratic members of Congress.

Hopefully they will both get primaried next year.

Weird, for some reason you didn't use the word racist or bigot in your comments.

It's hard to believe such a strident leftist seems so incredibly uninformed as to philosophical underpinnings of modern leftism.

I've never had any trouble having a civil conversation with the guy on any topic. He seems pretty mellow when everyone stops pissing on each other's leg.

It doesn’t seem like they even pretend to do work on behalf of their constituents. Unless, as WhiteWhale points out, pushing an anti-Israel agenda is what their constituents elected them for.

It would be interesting to hear what the other Dem House members really think of these two.

Hence why I said uninformed instead of ignorant.

It's not hard to see the reason why Omar and Tlaib are where they are and why they are publicized.

There are a lot of people here in Region 5 that are sick of her. She needs a primary.

She has done nothing for Minnesota.

No, they don't. They have personal agendas that they appear to place above their obligations to their constituents. They don't appear to understand how representative government works in this country.

My feeling is that the vast majority of Democratic members of Congress have had more than their fill of these two and would like to see them gone.
