“Hollywood celebrities concerned about bigotry in America made one big exception this week to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she was accused of anti-Semitism for remarks she made about the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).”
Note well: these Hollywood celebrities who heavily impact culture are not concerned about anti-Semitism, but about anti-Muslim bigotry, with specific reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is herself a purveyor of bigotry. It’s insane, but it is also a familiar pattern. It’s fine for Muslims to be bigoted against Jews and other infidels, apostates, and homosexuals, to deem women to be inferior, and hold black slaves.
Despite Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets claiming that “Jewish money was behind American elected officials’ support for Israel,” specifically the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Bernie Sanders stated: “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.”
“Hollywood Rallies Around Ilhan Omar: ‘I’m a Jew; She Was Right About AIPAC,’” by Justin Caruso, Breitbart, February 14, 2019:
Hollywood celebrities concerned about bigotry in America made one big exception this week to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she was accused of anti-Semitism for remarks she made about the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Ilhan Omar said in a social media post about GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy defending Israel.
She then insinuated that AIPAC was paying American politicians to be pro-Israel.
Many political figures, even Democrats, accused her of perpetuating harmful anti-Semitic tropes.
Hollywood celebrities, however, had a different opinion.
“I’m a Jew; she was right about AIPAC,” comedian Michael Ian Black said, adding, “Also, I’m an American; I’m right about the NRA.”
“Trump’s criticism of Omar is ironic given how many times he has made anti-Semitic comments or hesitated to denounce such rhetoric,” Mia Farrow remarked.
Left-wing director Judd Apatow responded to Vice President Mike Pence’s condemnation of Omar, snarking, “Pocahontas is cool? Nazi’s are good people is cool? Mexicans are rapists is cool? Africa is a shithole is cool? Grab em by the pussy is cool? Gotcha.”
Rosie O’Donnell re-tweeted a similar criticism of Trump, simply adding, “ImpeachTrumpNow.”
Michael Moore simply posted a glowing photo of Omar….
