“How dare they speak out against someone saying how they feel. She said nothing wrong. Everything she said is the truth. So where is this anti-Semitism coming in? I am not getting it,” [Carolyn Oliver Fair, the executive director of the North Jersey Chapter of the National Action Network] said.

Oliver Fair falsely asserted that the shooters who carried out the deadly attack were Jewish.

The movement is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League.

An Al Sharpton acolyte defending Terrell’s anti-Semitism? Who’d’a thunk it?

Might wanna grab a Snickers … it could be a while.
