.@Sethrogen asked me what Rashida Tlaib & Ilhan Omar have said for me (and many Jews) to label them anti-Semites. It requires a thread.

It's not just what they've said, but what they've done & believe. It's why they made Simon Wiesenthal Center list of biggest anti-Semites.
Tlaib doesn't believe in Israel's right to exist, quite literally replacing Israel with a post-it note saying "Palestine."

She supports the anti-Semitic BDS movement & when colleagues condemned it, she employed the dual loyalty trope: ‘They forgot what country they represent.’
Tlaib promoted a blood libel smear against Jews. nypost.com/2020/01/29/rep…

She said that Israel "unjustly oppress[es] & target[s] Palestinian children and families. #FreePalestine" after Israel responded to 350 rockets were fired at them by terrorists.
She compared Israel to Nazi Germany, equating her boycott of Israel to anyone who might boycott Nazis.

She also associated with anti-Semites. She proudly posed for a photo with Hezbollah supporter Abbas Hamideh *at her swearing-in ceremony* to Congress. When ADL asked how this happened, she refused to explain.
Skipping a trip to Israel to visit "Palestine," Tlaib (and Omar) partnered with MITFAH. Their website posts blood libel, Jewish media conspiracies (reprinted from a Neo-Nazi website), celebrations of terrorists, and one posts asks "Is Israel the Only Possible Homeland for Jews?"
In a Hanukkah message, Tlaib celebrated by thanking activists for their commitment to "defunding the occupation in Falestine." (This harkens back to that whole Israel-doesn't-have-the-right-to-exist thing she believes.)
Now, let's go to Ilhan Omar -- another supporter of BDS. She loves to play into the anti-Semitic tropes.

After claiming she faced punishment for criticizing Israel, she tweeted "It's all about the Benjamins baby." She singled out AIPAC -- not other lobbyists. Just the Jews.
Omar said “Israel has hypnotized the world” & prayed that people would see the “evil doings of Israel.”

Omar pushed dual loyalty: “I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.”
In a campaign ad against her opponent, she singled out three donors -- the Jewish ones. American Jewish Congress condemned it, especially since she's suggested Israel buy's support (sensing a trend?).
When it comes to either of the anti-Semitic congresswomen you'll note, hopefully @Sethrogen, they don't target Israeli policy. They target Israel. And Jews.

Here's what I think @realDonaldTrump should do.

-Immediately make SCOTUS nomination to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg to vote on in second term.

-Campaign on the issue. This will drive votes.

-Re-elect, get the conservative SCOTUS we deserve.
SCOTUS as election issue worked for Rs in '16. It motivated voters in some swing states & it should be *more* motivating now.

Hey FL, MI, WI: Do you want a PROGRESSIVE justice? It's a compelling argument from @realDonaldTrump.

Risky? Maybe. What do his internals say about race?
Is it closer than the national and state polls suggest? Then run on this issue HARD. It's already completely changed the election. It'll motivate the Left (and big money) hard. But it can also motivate the ones who were on the fence on the Right.

KUOW reports @3DollarBillCine (Three Dollar Bill Cinema) fired an independent contractor for starting a recall petition against a Socialist Councilmember. Is this true?

In Seattle, it’s *illegal* to discriminate on the basis of political ideology.

kuow.org/stories/man-wh… Image
This cinema is a member of the @ffalliance. And @SeattleArts is a contributor to them.

I’m curious to see if they stand for free speech and will accept @3DollarBillCine group mistreating workers or if they’ll be silent.
I'm curious if @SeattleArts is permitted to sponsors organizations that appear to discriminate against employees. I'll be exploring this on Monday.

Lots of rumors tonight on a big piece of news tomorrow... SPD Chief Carmen Best will resign tomorrow morning. Dori Monson is on our sister station KIRO discussing it right now.
This is obviously unconfirmed. If true it would be a huge blow to the SPD. But it could also lead to huge changes with residents finally speaking up against this Council nonsense.
And now I hear from a source saying the same thing. A lot of time between now and the 11am presser tomorrow.

The union representing Seattle broadcast journalists told the City Council membership supports defunding the police. Now, they're backpedaling (poorly). KING 5 has called it out. KIRO 7 hasn't commented.

This nonsense erodes public trust in the media.

If the union either said the membership is against defunding -- or she shouted MAGA to the Council -- would members remain so quiet?
I suppose you can blame union protocol (is it?), but it seems weird that not everyone would jump at the chance to say this isn't reflective of their viewpoint. That they do, in fact, aim for objectivity.

The director of the Office of Law Enforcement Oversight has been hit with alarming allegations of racism, transphobia & calling the deputies she's tasked with holding accountable "d***heads".

When Jacobs was having “a party for women,” she’s allegedly told colleagues that “she was intentionally excluding transgender women from her invitation.” One of the colleagues she told, according to the complaint, is a member of the LGBTQ+ community. mynorthwest.com/2004464/rantz-…
In one conversation with an Asian employee, the director allegedly noted that “an ideal Deputy Director would be a white man.” mynorthwest.com/2004464/rantz-…

How did the media get CHOP so incredibly wrong?

On CNN, @dansimoncnn called it "more festival than protest." Daily Beast's @KELLYWEILL pretended businesses in CHOP "love" what was going on. She claimed to "debunk" stories of chaos within CHOP. /1
There has been a murder, attempted rape, rampant gun violence & lots of fights. Businesses just filed a class action lawsuit.

Some national reporters spent little time outside of their hotel rooms, pretending to cover CHOP. Some didn't visit at all. But they had takes! /2
Some saw @realDonaldTrump slam CHOP, so naturally, the reporters had to take the opposite position, serving as cheerleader for the movement, rather than objectively reporting.

Still others chose to report on what they *wanted* CHOP to be, instead of detail what it was. /3
