(TeaParty.org) – While the mainstream media has been hostile towards the nation of Israel for some time, in the unprecedented time of fake news that is the Trump era, they have gotten more antisemitic than ever.
Which means they absolutely adore anti-Semitic “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
That being said, as Natural News notes, the New York Times briefly found the cojones this week to allow one of their columnists to call out her colleagues in the media for totally dropping the ball on a major scandal linked to Israel’s decision last week to ban Omar and fellow antisemitic congresswoman, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from traveling to their nation.
Specifically, one group that was sponsoring the trip for Tlaib and Omar has ties to neo-Nazis, and of course, the garbage media never reported that — though you know they would have if the president or [insert Any Republican Here] had similar links.
“One of the huge stories this week was that fact that Benjamin Netanyahu decided to bar the entry of two Democratic members of Congress Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel based on Trump’s bullying him into that position. He reversed course,” columnist Bari Weiss said on CNN.
“Now, that’s a huge story, one I wrote a column about, but another huge story, one that isn’t being covered by any mainstream paper or network is the fact that their trip to Israel, or as they called it ‘Palestine,’ was being sponsored by a group that literally published neo-Nazi blood libels and said that it supported female suicide bombers, hailing them as heroes. That’s a scandal,” Weiss added. “If someone like (Rep.) Steve King (R-Iowa) went to Norway or Sweden to meet with neo-Nazi groups, that would be front page news.”
For media, everything Trump touches “becomes toxic,” @NYTOpinion’s @BariWeiss asserted on @CNNReliable, so press ignored how Ilhan Omar/Rashida Tlaib trip to “Palestine” was “sponsored by a group that literally had published neo-Nazi blood libels” and supports suicide bombers. pic.twitter.com/QYHuSzDJQ8

In spite of this being an incredibly valid story that you think any journalist would be all over–if they were interested in getting good stories.
But the media is populated with journalists who are more interested in making up stories than they are in chasing them.
This is where Trump comes in. One of the many reasons that the president’s supporters appreciate his rhetoric is that he will declare the truth when no one else will, and doesn’t bother to wait to determine if he’s politically correct or polite.
So he’s been slamming the congresswomen of “The Squad” for exactly what they are. Racists.
Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!

Rep Tlaib wants to cut off aid to Israel. This is the new face the of Democrat Party? Read the AOC PLUS 3 statements on their hatred of Jews and Israel. Check out Rep. Omar (the great people of Minnesota won’t stand for this).

This week, Fox News host and conservative author Mark Levin, who is Jewish, also slammed the congresswomen this week, as did Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) earlier this month.
Natural News reports:
He noted on his program Monday that they were denied entry to the Jewish state because they support the BDS movement, which is in violation of Israeli law. The decision to deny entry was issued by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after he determined that the visit’s “sole purpose is to strengthen the boycott and delegitimize Israel.”
BDS stands for “boycott, divestment, and sanctions,” and is a Palestinian-led campaign that seeks to deny Israel economic activity while destroying it financially. It’s obviously not in the country’s best interests to allow people who support the BDS movement into the country, even if they are U.S. lawmakers.
Last month, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) blasted Omar for propping up the BDS movement.
Both Omar and Tlaib are Muslim; the latter is of Palestinian descent.
On his show, Levin also blasted Democrats for providing political cover to both lawmakers despite their history of anti-Semitism.
“I am disgusted with the excuses for these two reprobates,” Levin said. “I am disgusted with the Democrat Party, which is increasingly accepting of neo-Nazi comments and anti-Semitism and bigotry.”
