The Democratic Party has a problem with anti-Semitism. Mainly, their problem lies with two of their most vocal members, both freshman Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
While Omar has had made a number of not so positive comments about the Jewish people, several of which the leadership of her party has even called out, this time it was Tlaib’s turn. Over the weekend, Tlaib appeared on a Yahoo podcast “Skullduggery” where she actually said that the Holocaust gave her a calming feeling due to the fact that as she understood it her ancestors – Palestinians – helped to create a safe haven for some of the Jews.
Except that didn’t happen. Palestinians have never been on the side of Israel, in fact most would rather see the Jewish nation wiped off the face of the earth.
Now, Tlaib is facing major backlash for her stupid comments about the Jewish people. One of those people calling of the Tlaib and the Democratic Party for their continued pattern of anti-Semitism is Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney.
Here’s @RepRashida direct quote, “There’s a calming feeling I always tell folks when I think of the Holocaust.” And her “history” of what happened after is a fantasy based on lies spread to delegitimize the state of Israel. https://t.co/5akpUSApIE

Despite Cheney directly quoting Tlaib, Omar, coming to her defense cries racism, once again.
Give it up, we all know you never met a Muslim you didn’t want to vilify!
Your deep seeded hate and Islamophobia might be a tool to rally your base, but won’t get rid your colleagues. You just have to deal 💁🏽♀️ https://t.co/hMvvxLnmp5

This is ridiculous, simply drawing attention to Tlaib’s words is considered racist. Democrats really can find any and every instance to somehow make themselves the victim. It’s absolutely stunning actually.
