If you don’t want people to call you out, don’t tweet out anti-Semitic garbage.
After 19-year-old John Earnest opened fire on the Chabad of Pomway in California, the anti-Semitism that has plagued America came to the forefront.
The View co-host Meghan McCain pushed back against both sides when it comes to anti-Semitism, but she rightfully pointed out Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism.
Omar took a shot at McCain this morning by tweeting, “Oh, bless her heart!” Us in the south know exactly what Southerners mean when they use that phrase.
“When we’re having conversations about antisemitism, we should be looking at the most extreme on both sides,” McCain said after a right-wing terrorist shot up the Poway synagogue, killing one and injuring multiple other worshippers. “And I would bring up Congresswoman Omar and some of her comments that got so much attention.”
“In my opinion, Nancy Pelosi wasn’t hard enough in her response to [Omar] trafficking in antisemitic language, talking about ‘it’s all about the Benjamins’ and how Jewish people had hypnotized the world,” McCain added, before also calling out President Donald Trump‘s repeated defenses of the white nationalist Charlottesville rally in 2017 and saying, “We’re talking about it on both sides of the aisle.”
Omar responded after a woman named Sophie Ellman-Golan, who belongs to the Women’s March and boasts how she’s “dismantling white supremacist patriarchy,” bashed McCain for supposedly blaming Omar for the shooting.
It doesn’t sound like McCain specifically blamed Omar for the shooting. She reminded people Omar has tweeted a lot of anti-Semitic language.
Thing is, we should always call out anti-Semitism, Islamaphobia, and all hatred towards all faiths.
I don’t like how she pushed the false narrative that President Donald Trump defended the white nationalists in Charlottesville, VA. We have proven this wrong many times.
McCain called out Speaker Nancy Pelosi because she hasn’t done enough to condemn the anti-Semitism that has seeped out of the Democratic Party. After Omar’s Jewish money tweet, the House voted on a resolution to condemn hate, but refused to name Omar. Then again, Pelosi appeared on a Rolling Stone cover with Omar.
Anyway, in case Omar needs a reminder, we have kept track not only of her anti-Semitic remarks, but bashing of Christianity.
- She once claimed that Jewish money buys Israel supporters in Congress.
- She tweeted that “Israel has hypnotized the world.”
- She implied that Sen. Lindsey Graham sometimes supports Trump because he’s “compromised.”
- She slammed the Convington Catholic School boys and defended a hate group.
- She mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith.
Thing is, McCain received criticism from leftists for bringing up Omar in the interview.
Jewish friends—how do you feel about Meghan McCain using a deadly terrorist attack by a white supremacist & anti-Muslim bigot, as an excuse to attack Rep Ilhan Omar? pic.twitter.com/Ml3bK15FZ6

Our people are dying and Meghan McCain continues to pretend Ilhan Omar is to blame. It’s horrifying and dangerous, and McCain needs to be held to account. https://t.co/caNUYOWuiC

An absolutely pathetic person.

Once again, Meghan McCain conflates the real hatred of the Jewish people among white nationalists, with Ilhan Omar’s criticism of Israel. Absolutely vile and dangerous. HT @mkearley2008 #PowaySynagogueShootingpic.twitter.com/7wwB2HypUo

Meghan McCain is part of the movement radicalizing young white men to murder Jews and Muslims. If she wants to help, she can denounce anti-immigrant conspiracy mongering and then dedicate her life to gun control.
Her continued attacks on Ilhan Omar make Jews less safe too.

I’d compare Meghan McCain’s level of tone-deafness to Logan Paul, but even Logan Paul was smart enough to not equate Rep. Ilhan Omar to “the most extreme” antisemitism in the country right now. pic.twitter.com/wADK0pIUWT
