The New York Times made global headlines over the weekend after they published a “vicious” anti-Semitic cartoon depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog being led by a blind Donald Trump.
“Condemnations of The New York Times increased over the weekend after the paper’s international edition published an antisemitic cartoon. The offensive image was of a blind US President Donald Trump wearing a yarmulke, being walked by a dog with the face of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wearing a Star of David collar,” reports the Jerusalem Post.
“Even if unintentional, the Left has normalized antisemitism under the guise of criticizing US-Israel foreign policy,” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw over the weekend.
Even if unintentional, the left has normalized anti-semitism under the guise of criticizing US-Israel foreign policy. It is radicalizing people.

“Absolutely disgraceful and classless antisemitic pic,” tweeted Congressman Lee Zeldin.
The Times apologized for the hateful cartoon days later; vowing to get to the bottom of the anti-Semitic publication.

A NEW LOW: Rashida Tlaib Accuses STEVE SCALISE of ‘Islamophobia’ for Condemning Anti-Semitism
Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.
“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

“The Democratic National Committee has joined the list of liberal organizations dropping their affiliations with the Women’s March, just days before the progressive group’s third annual march on Washington, DC,” writes the Washington Times.
“The DNC will not serve as a sponsor and no DNC leaders will speak at Saturday’s march, a Democratic source confirmed to the Washington Times, after sending two prominent officials to address the 2018 Women’s March, including DNC chair Tom Perez,” adds the report.
Women’s March founder Tamika Mallory doubled-down on her previous comments regarding controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan this week; calling the notorious anti-Semite “the greatest of all time.”
