Anti-Israel Congressman You Never Heard Of Whines About Why No One Is Attacking Him On Social Media

Anti-Israel Congressman You Never Heard Of Whines About Why No One Is Attacking Him On Social Media

After Rep. Mark Pocan noted that he condemned Israel but no one criticized him, people responded that they never heard of him.

It’s never a good idea for an elected official to reveal themselves as a Useful Idiot, especially when it comes to their country and/or its allies defending themselves from terrorist attacks.

That’s exactly what happened earlier this week when a Wisconsin Democratic congressman defended Rep. Ilhan Omar by insinuating that criticism of her anti-Semitic stance on Israel defending itself against Hamas attacks was based on racism.

Rep. Mark Pocan has spent the last several days doing what appears to be auditioning for an honorary spot on the Squad by either tweeting or retweeting one attack after another on Israel for having the nerve to respond accordingly to rockets launched against them by Hamas.

On Tuesday, Pocan alleged there was something else behind the right’s criticisms of Omar beyond their disgust over her predictable displays of anti-Semitism masquerading as “concerns” over supposed “human rights abuses” against the Palestinians. In Pocan’s view, the right’s bigger issue with Omar is that she’s Somali-American:

Omar, of course, amplified his tweet and also retweeted a biased Nation piece that referenced his insinuation that racism was the primary motivation for the right’s disagreements with her:

Pocan’s suggestion backfired spectacularly when Omar’s critics pointed out they didn’t give him equal treatment because no one knows him:

Others pointed out that Pocan, as an LGBTQ Congressman effectively taking the side of Hamas in this fight, was the very definition of a self-defeating exercise:

Another noted that she wasn’t right-wing but that she, too, strongly disapproved of his position on Israel defending itself:

I considered responding to Rep. Pocan by suggesting he delete his account in shame. That would rob us of the pleasure of seeing him get dunked to infinity and beyond for actually believing that riding to Omar’s rescue, especially over an issue like this, was a good look. It wasn’t.

Cause you can’t get no respect.
Insert Rodney Dangerfield joke here.

Comrade Pocan can show his solidarity by walking through Gaza with a rainbow flag while kissing his boyfriend.

If this moron can get elected – anybody can.

Forget it Jake. It’s Madison.

Of course, he’s a D. He want to bask in the glory of anti-semitism.

Wow a d/progressive Congressman from a University town, Madison WI, supports a terrorist organization? Wait that’s completely normal so this is more of a ‘dog bites man’ than ‘Man bites dog’ story.

If by ‘right wing extremists’ he is referring to those us who support our ally when under attack then count me in!

Though it would be nice if he would acknowledge that his use of a political spectrum in using the term ‘right wing’ logically means that a ‘left wing’ exists as it’s opposite.

Which would make him and others who support terrorism instead of our Nation’s allies …’left wing extremists’. When do we get to hear more about them?

Just checked and found I was right: his district includes Madison. That explains everything.

If a tweet goes down in a torrent and nobody pays attention to it, is the tweeter a fraudulent waste of oxygen?

A couple of those responses misspelled “care”.

Me thinks the little boy, Rep. Mark Pocan, is starved for attention.

It is unnecessary to attack such people on social media. They do such a fantastic job of demonstrating their arrogant ignorance all by themselves.

But Mark Pocan is Jewish !!!
or was born Jewish, anyway
