(TNS) Well, well, well. The freshmen “Squad” took to Washington, D.C., like a duck to water or, in this case, like an anti-Semite to Jewish persecution.

The four Marxist-Leftists who comprise this gaggle of haters — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley — just think they’re soooo smart. They’re getting ready to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Jew, because they think that’ll give them political cover to continue being racist bigots towards Jews.
Notes Erielle Davidson at The Federalist:
Three of the four members of the infamous all-female House “Squad” are gearing up to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. While Rep. Ilhan Omar has formally expressed her support for Sanders’ candidacy, reports indicate that Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are expected to publicly throw their weight behind the 78-year old Vermont senator soon. …
There’s a dark underbelly to these endorsements, however. Omar’s endorsement of Sanders—and his warm embrace of it— arguably relitigates the left’s embrace of antisemitism. Just last month, Sanders welcomed disgraced Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour as a campaign surrogate. Sarsour has a long history of supporting the antisemitic BDS movement against Israel and paling around with fans of the antisemitic, anti-white, homophobic Nation of Islam preacher Louis Farrakhan.
As noted by Jonathan Tobin of National Review, it’s likely that Sarsour’s defenders will use her support for potentially the first Jewish president as evidence she is not an anti-Semite. But there’s a large gap between the hateful rhetoric she historically has espoused and her recent attachment to the Sanders campaign.
In the case of Omar and Tlaib, the constructed narrative will likely be the same. Both officials have come under fire for their support of the BDS movement, Omar in particular for several past tweets in which she relied on antisemitic tropes to express her opinion.
Thus, Omar and Tlaib’s endorsements will likely help to shield them from accusations of antisemitism down the road, should they opt to engage with antisemitic actors or spread antisemitic tropes. Tobin notes, however, that unlike the alleged antisemites Sanders manages to attract in his midst, he himself has never advocated for Israel’s economic or physical destruction.
As we have documented (here, here, and here), three of these four are straight-up anti-Semites — like, on the scale of Adolph Hitler-type of hatred, and that is especially true for Omar and Tlaib. And look: Once again, people like them, haters to the core, have found a comfy home in the Garbage Party.
Bernie will become a giant hypocrite by gladly taking their endorsement because turning America into a Communist dung heap is more important to him than integrity.
But if these ‘ladies’ think they can just endorse a Jewish presidential contender and we’ll just forget that they are raging anti-Semites, they’re dumber than we thought.
