The recent spate of vicious, anti-Semitic attacks should not come as a big surprise. It coincides with another phenomenon unprecedented in modern U.S. history: open, virulent, anti-Semitism in Congress. The kind of anti-Semitic diatribes uttered by Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have been the root cause of much death and mayhem around the world. Is there any reason to believe their words are not having an impact here?
People have been fired or run out of business for speech a lot less racist and hateful than Omar’s and Tlaib’s; why are these two hatemongers still in Congress? Are we waiting for more diatribes and deaths? Omar and Tlaib should be expelled immediately. Individuals with such an uncultured and savage outlook in life don’t belong in a civilized society, let alone Congress.
