OK, now that the House has passed that resolution declaring that hate is bad, we can all stop talking about Rep. Ilhan Omar. Sure, she’ll keep making anti-Semitic remarks, but she’s learning and she’ll grow and she’ll change. And even she voted yes on that resolution, celebrating that it denounced Islamophobia.
We thought we were done talking about anti-Semitism, but The Young Turks’ Cenk Uyger kicked things up a notch with his tweet explaining who the real anti-Semites are: right-wing Christians.
You know what's REAL anti-semitism? Right-wing Evangelical Christians supporting Israel because they think it will bring about the End Times where all of the Jews die. Worst anti-Semitism in the world!

Sometimes I think “Cenk is a performance artist” then I think “no one goes full progressive, though”… then I see this and I’m back to thinking this is performance art.

This basically is the new Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It is a slur upon Christians and if you talk to any Christian and tell them they believe this they will look at you like you're nuts. https://t.co/pQTFFgvcOU

This is not why evangelical Christians support Jews and Israel, and you are a bigot and an idiot. https://t.co/dtBrpEdR80

This is a lie, @cenkuygur.
Christians in America largely support Israel because they believe God will "bless those who bless the Jews and curse those who curse the Jews." https://t.co/euLkSlOj4V

Cenk, you’ve made a radically inaccurate statement about Christian doctrine for the sake of burying your opponents. Are you in any way interested in being credible beyond your echo chamber? https://t.co/Frahr9QCY4

As a Jew, I am grateful every day for my Evangelical Christian friends who support our shared history and *defend* the Jewish people and our right to our homeland.
Without their support there would be no one else on Earth standing by us as genocidal masses relentlessly attack. https://t.co/qJLZ5HaATj

This is such a gross misinterpretation of Christian beliefs to try and deflect from the real and putrid anti-semitism of Omar. Jack of all trades, master at none? https://t.co/WKtbMh0FPA

The left is trying so hard today to come up with excuses for their anti-semitism, that they’ve actually resorted to “Christians only support Israel………because they want the world to end.”
