Wow, the Democrats are really fumbling today, and we’re here for it.
First, you know things are bad when Den Mother Nancy Pelosi has to call Rep. Ilhan Omar into her office and tell her to lay off the anti-Semitic tweets. After that scolding, Omar issued an “unequivocal” apology which was neither an apology nor was it unequivocal; instead she concluded by lumping in AIPAC with the NRA and calling out their “problematic role” — problematic if you believe in free speech, maybe.
So who should come along but House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff to also unequivocally call out Omar for her anti-Semitic smears — before looping in poor George Soros and all the anti-Semitic attacks on him by Republicans. Rep. Schiff, we know you’re in bed with Soros and it’s good of you to admit it, but this is a stretch. “Unequivocal” has a strange new meaning today.
House Intelligence Chairman @RepAdamSchiff on @IlhanMN comments: "It’s never acceptable to give voice to, or repeat, anti-Semitic smears. That goes for Rep. Omar, and it also goes for Republicans who have trafficked in anti-Semitic attacks on George Soros and others." pic.twitter.com/86rSnXIo5v

Which Republicans are those, Rep. Schiff? Maybe point us to some of their anti-Semitic tweets?
Equating criticism of George Soros for giving to Leftist causes (he does) with the constant insinuation by Omar that the Jews writ large are responsible for America's support for Israel is a rather large stretch. https://t.co/JgtYOB3iZF

I’ve noticed the lengths her defenders have gone to to focus solely on THIS tweet while intentionally leaving out the fact that THIS tweet is far from an isolated incident.

Lol George Soros is a Leftist who funds anti-American, anti-conservative causes . He's hardly Jewish othe than by birth. So ridiculous to equate the two. Criticism of an individual who happens to be Jewish is not in the least a logical deduction of antisemitism.

Schiff protecting Soros- shocking
— Lady Patriot ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@LuvMyAmerica) February 11, 2019
I don’t believe Republicans have advocated for the death of Jews and other Israelites, such as Omar. We’ll just have to face the fact that there’s no accountability on the left, and there’ll never be any.

George Soros has betrayed Jews more than anyone else in history.
— Norm Ross (@NormRossUSA) February 11, 2019
Soros doesn't identify himself with Jews, and Israel has disavowed him.
He is just a globablist, disguised as a philanthropist, with no scruples who is bringing suffering to the entire world by his disgusting meddlings in all countries' businesses.
Nothing to do with antisemitism

So in other words, Schiff is not serious on calling out anti-Semitism. Just trying to catch some political points. #WhatAJoke

Classic @RepAdamSchiff can't just state the obvious without a partisan attack. He's exactly the kind of politican that got Trump elected, and he will do so again.
— Timothy P. Burden (@timothy_burden) February 11, 2019
Adam Schiff is using what whataboutism. The left has mastered that tactic. People criticize George Soros not because he's jewish (another Schiff lie) but because he's a big supporter of globalism. People who don't like globalism criticize him. That's totally a fair thing to do.

Wow, classic display of Democrat accountability. Not a good time for Dems between an antisemitic congresswoman and a racist governor.

Nothing about criticism of Soros has anything to do with his heritage or faith. It has to do with his political philosophies. Don't be dense.
— Brewer Crain (@BrewerCrain) February 11, 2019
regardless of his race or beliefs, @georgesoros is a terrible excuse for a human being. he is attacked for his actions, not for being Jewish.

Seems Schiff can’t issue a single statement without false equivalency embedded.
— Brotein Shake (@BetaPsi77) February 11, 2019
Scott, you are making a false equivalence here.
Learn to not do that.

Opposing an individual's actions without ever considering or mentioning their religion race or Nation of origin is NOT anti-Semitic or racist, whether we're talking about George Soros or Obama. Ilhan Omar specifically uses #antisemitic slurs & rhetoric.
Try again @RepAdamSchiff!
— Mountain Mama (@Constitution_76) February 11, 2019
No…Don’t give passes. Either she’s wrong or not. Bringing in others to excuse her BS behavior isn’t an apology. She should be accountable for what she says no matter what someone else says.
— skidoohd (@Skidoo73000) February 11, 2019
Hey, Rep. Omar … is the massive amount of money George Soros gives to Democrats “problematic” too? Funny you don’t seem to have a problem with him.
