Social media mob goes after half-Mexican, half-Polish Jewish grandchild of Holocaust survivors for supposedly flashing a White Power hand sign.
It’s getting hard to describe how insane #TheResistance to Brett Kavanaugh has become.
The first day of hearings, which involved no testimony by Kavanaugh, devolved into a circus.
We’ve already covered today the antics of Democrat Senators trying to abort the hearings by repeatedly interrupting, the disruptions by Linda Sarsour and crew, and the stage and phony claim that Kavanaugh refused to shake the hand of the father of a Parkland school shooting victim.
All those things were stupid political theater.
But there is an evil attack on a former Kavanaugh law clerk, Zina Bash, which shows how malicious #StopKavanaugh has become.
Bash has done numerous media appearances in support of Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Bash was sitting behind Kavanaugh as #TheResistance disrupted the hearings. She was in camera view.
Anti-Trump social media users with large followings singled her out for supposedly snide facial expressions and flashing a white power sign.
Kavanaugh’s former law clerk Zina Bash is flashing a white power sign behind him during his Senate confirmation hearing. They literally want to bring white supremacy to the Supreme Court. What a national outrage and a disgrace to the rule of law. https://t.co/uQGOpNa6xg

She even was accused of being a neo-Nazi.
This neo-nazi is Zina Bash. She’s intentionally throwin up White Power signs at a Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearing. On national TV. She works for Kavanaugh & is also one of the writers for Trump’s immigration policy. This is their new Amerikkka. #StopKavanaugh https://t.co/Dw3ZD2M5bk

The attacks on Bash spread, and she and her family were the subject of articles at Heavy and elsewhere discussing their personal lives.
So who is Zina Bash? She’s the half-Mexican, half-Polish Jewish lawyer whose family on her father’s side survived the Holocaust.
So, I've checked in with Twitter to see that "Zina Bash" is trending. Huh. I know her. Why is she trending? She made a white-supremacist hand gesture? This is the nuttiest, stupidest allegation in the history of the world (or at least tied for). Really, y'all: Get a life.

Bash’s husband, appointed as a U.S. Attorney by Trump, came to her defense:
