Addressing the elephant in the room

Former Senator Joe Lieberman bashes Representative Omar over anti-semitic rhetoric

 

 

Here’s what Lieberman said on Fox News, responding to Omar’s suggestion that pro-Israel pols have sold out America by pledging “allegiance” to the Jewish state: That’s “clearly anti-Semitic,” he said, Mediaite noted.

In full: “When people say words that are biased, bigoted and hurtful to another group of people — another group of Americans — they have to be condemned quickly or else it takes hold. I’m not only thinking about anti-Semitism, I’m thinking about racism, I’m thinking about any kind of bigotry toward any religious group or any other group,” he said

 

“It’s a moral test about how clearly they will speak out — in this case against what Congresswoman Omar said, which was clearly anti-Semitic,” Lieberman said.

He then said most Democrats don’t think as Omar does about America’s support for Israel.

“But if they start to mumble in response to her specific and clear anti-Semitic statement,” Lieberman went on, “then the party itself is going to be held more broadly accountable for having similar feelings — which I know they don’t.”
