‘Dangerous bigot’: Ilhan Omar’s amplification of hit job on the Forward’s Batya Ungar-Sargon has another disturbing layer

Try it you will like it

Just because media firefighters (with precious few exceptions) have decided to sit there and pretend that all the anti-Semitic things Ilhan Omar says and does don’t make her an anti-Semite doesn’t mean the rest of us do.

We’d say that Omar’s up to her old tricks again, but the truth is that she never stopped. She recently decided to amplify a hit job on liberal Forward opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon, who — gasp! — had the gall to call her and Rashida Tlaib out for sharing an anti-Semitic cartoon. (Ungar-Sargon, it should be noted, has expressed sympathy for Omar and her ideological ilk in the past.) The hit job, naturally, was from Mondoweiss, a far-Left, anti-Israel website that makes no secret of its hostility toward Jews:

“Hate site” is not an exaggeration, by the way:

Of course Ilhan Omar’s an admirer of theirs. Of course.

What’s it going to take for her apologists to wake up?

Is there any doubt — any whatsoever — that if Steve King were sharing posts from the Daily Stormer or VDare, we wouldn’t have round-the-clock media coverage and endless shaming of every Republican politician who didn’t call for his head on a platter?

Where’s the outrage? Ilhan Omar couldn’t possibly make it any clearer that she’s an anti-Semitic bigot, and yet there’s been almost no outcry from the Left.
