You can't make this up. Both reps shared a cartoon by an artist named Latuff who mocks holocaust survivors and:

“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.”

If this artist was U.S.-based, as immoral and unethical as such an expression can be, it is still First Amendment-protected unless there was something that made it illegal. That is a harsh truth about free speech.

Interesting how when liberal anti-Israel types talk long enough, they eventually reveal their hostility toward Jews.

We're done.
No hostility to the people, just don't like how Israel is treating the Palestinians.

Are you saying we have to blindly agree with and love everything Israel does or else we are antisemitic?

Nope-that would seem to be you and others on the left. Cute try at deflecting your actions onto others. A fail, but cute.

You are not a closet nazi and yet you believe that a superior group of people can dispossess, ghetto and demonize as subhuman more inferior folks? Face it, you are a closet nazi in denial, your strawman argumentation cannot hide that, sorry.

The truth usually shines through the lies.

Now that the Palestinians have a voice in Congress, why must it be crushed?
They are supposed to be representing their respective Congressional districts, not Palestine.

Q: Is making the antisemitic claim the Jews drink Christian blood - something that goes back to 13th century England, if memory serves - "talking bad about Israel"?

A: No. It's Jew-hate, plain and simple. And these are the Jew-hating scum that Tlaib and Omar are buddying up with?
I was thinking, maybe he is a Bot. LOL

Something is not making sense. There's all this smoke but no fire?

Anyway, there's a lot of policies and philosophies that emerged since the 1960s that I find anti-white and anti-American and some people are accusing the Jews of orchestrating it. Logically if no out group influence is involved then Anglos decided to alter and blend away their culture themselves. It's all very strange.
You do realize that the storefront type people use this line all the time. They say, “Why do the Jews always get singled out if they are doing nothing wrong.”

But if they understood history, they would know that all kinds of minorities within countries have taken the blame for anything that goes wrong. It is a lot easier to point the finger at someone else than at oneself. And in Europe, Jews usually made up the only minority with enough size to possibly cause these problems. There weren’t black people to blame, or any other group that looked different than them. It was just Jews.

But if you look at countries in other continents, you will find many examples of the minority group being blamed, and killed by the majority. It is not specific to Jews. It is specific to minority groups. Even in Europe, look at how many people died because they were in the Catholic minority.

No. I'm saying that if there is an objection to the way Israelis are dealing with the Palestinians who would like to annihilate them, it is telling they are referred to as "the Jews". If being against Israeli policy is unrelated to feelings about Jews, then why label them "Jews"?

That's all well and fine. But I'm talking about America where the majority is arguably blamed more than anyone. Minorities are not blameless, the blame might be exaggerated and the blamers might even be anti-minority, but the criticism and accusations usually have some degree of truth. A minority group can be in the wrong and anti-majority.

To just say any criticism or accusation against a group is anti-group isn't a sufficient response.
