Tlaib And Omar Promote Radical Extremists

Are we even surprised at this point?


Anti-Semitic Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) promoted a cartoon from a cartoonist who publicly mocked Holocaust victims.

Batya Ungar-Sargon of the Jewish Daily Forward, who noticed and developed the cartoon, 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 … “

The choice of Omar and Tlaib to share the cartoon triggered internet backlash from users who highlighted some of Latuff’s vile cartoons.

The Reagan Battalion posted a tweet: “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?”

The Reagan Battalion continued: “So @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib both shared a cartoon by a cartoonist who not only took part in Iran’s holocaust denial cartoon contest, but also celebrates the death of American soldiers.”

This recent event involving Omar, Tlaib, and their anti-Semitism falls on Israel’s heels prohibiting them from entering the nation last week after it was disclosed that they were planning to meet with organizations supporting terrorism against Israel, including one that promoted neo-Nazi screeds.
