This?

(For the record, if Jewish people are legitimately upset by Omar’s comments I’m not going to argue they are wrong. If conmen like Ben Shapiro use it as a political football while posing for pictures with Steve fucking King I’m going to call it out).

I had no idea that Tom Steyer had any Jewish ancestry until this stupid thing came out. However, it is common knowledge that he's a billionaire who spends large sums of his money attacking Trump and campaigning for impeachment, which of course, I'm totally on board with. Good for him, I hope he keeps it up. In fact, even as someone far more familiar than most with the financial world, I had never even heard of Tom Steyer until his anti-Trump campaigns.

If the thing that you're principally known for in politics is being fabulously wealthy and throwing a fuckton of cash around, and someone in politics refers to you as "Tom $teyer", that is not anti-semitic, or at the very least, that's a real stretch of an assumption, even if his father was Jewish. Much more likely, it's either over-revving of the hypersensitive left-wing outrage machine, or it's deliberately disingenuous in an attempt to make political hay, or both.

There was also this tweet from Kevin McCarthy shortly before the 2018 election:

Omar got in trouble for saying AIPAC uses money to influence Israel policy which is just fact, a fact that AIPAC says themselves in media. That is certainly no worse than using a dollar sign for a Jewish person's name.

Sheldon Adelson is another billionaire who is well-known for spending large sums of money on political causes, but if I saw someone refer to him as $heldon Adle$son, I would find that sketch as hell.

^^ she sucks, but I have no problem with her statement. It was a statement of plain fact.

Nobody ever said you had a problem with it. NYM was responding to the uproar over Omar's comments and asking why others weren't getting the same attention.

"Vargas wrote that “questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable,” to which Ocasio-Cortez responded: “I remember a time when it was ‘unacceptable’ to question the Iraq War.”"


LOL, fucking Juan.

Everything is fucking stupid.

Pelosi should really-write this entire stupid resolution and have it only include the dozens (hundreds?) of racist and anti-Semitic things Trump has said since assuming office.

It took three days and a dumb Trump tweet for Dem leadership to realize this isn’t about anti-semitism or bigotry. It’s about false equivalence and political hackery.

Imagine being outpoliticked by the dumbest motherfucker in the country.

Remember when there was a streak of bomb threats being made against synagogues and Jewish community centers and when a Jewish reporter asked Trump what he's doing to stop it the answer was "I had the biggest electoral landslide in history"

Good God, Clyburn. This is way, way worse than anything Omar said. I am not gonna defend the marginalization of those still affected by the holocaust.
