Journo and Ilhan Omar cheerleader Mehdi Hasan blasts ‘anti-Semitic’ Donald Trump, plays victim when called out on his hypocrisy

Al Jazeera English’s Mehdi Hasan, one of Ilhan Omar’s most loyal and vocal cheerleaders, thinks that the wake of Donald Trump’s remarks about Democratic Jews’ “disloyalty” would be a good opportunity to remind you that Donald Trump has a history of flirting with anti-Semitism. Here’s the list Mehdi’s put together:
The person who said this, remember:
- Retweeted an image of Hillary in a star of David
- Ran an anti-Semitic campaign ad
- Praised neo-Nazis at Charlottesville
- Told US Jews their country is Israel
- Backed a Soros caravan conspiracy
- Kept a book of Hitler speeches by his bed

Did we miss the memo stating that Donald Trump’s issues with anti-Semitism totally negate Ilhan Omar’s? We get that Omar’s trying to pretend like she’s got a moral leg to stand on and everything, but surely even her good friend Mehdi can admit that maybe she’s not in the best position to lecture anyone on the evils of anti-Semitism, right?
Of course he can’t admit that. Doing so would require admitting that Ilhan Omar is a chronic, unapologetic anti-Semite. And that’s just not something he’s willing to do.
Rashida Talib and Ilhan Omar planned a trip with an organization that promoted Neo-Nazi blood libels, and then published an antisemitic cartoonist on her Instagram feed.

They can both be antisemites. It would be a sign of intelligence if you were able to hold that thought

After excusing and covering for the vicious anti-semitism of Omar and Tlaib, the left has pretty much zero credibility on this.

Mehdi Hasan is not interested in an intellectually honest examination of anti-Semitism in this country. If he were, he’d put down his sword and stop white-knighting for Ilhan Omar.

If Democrats were smart, and if the “liberal media” existed, this would be a huge story and Dems/liberals would be screaming “anti-Semite” at Trump and the GOP and insisting they apologize/disown Trump. It would be the only story in town for days.

But they aren’t and it doesn’t.

Actually, quite a few Democrats and members of the nonexistent “liberal media” have been screaming “anti-Semite” at Trump, despite having ignored or excused Omar and Tlaib’s anti-Semitism.
No part of being a non-Jewish ally against anti-Semitism involves attacking mainstream Jewish groups for being insufficiently tough on anti-Semitism, unlike you, the non-Jew.

Trump claims to be a bigger authority on anti-Semitism than Jews all the time. Don't be like Trump.

Mehdi’s not so much committed to defending Jews from anti-Semitism as he is to defending left-wing anti-Semites.
But he’ll still make time to brand any critic of his and Omar’s an Islamophobe:
God forbid Mehdi put his money where his big mouth is and stand up for what’s right instead of standing up for Ilhan Omar.
Calling out Trump's antisemitism = good

Calling out Ilhan or Tlaibs antisemitism = islamophobic

can you tell us why, @mehdirhasan, before your Qatari checks clear of course
