Freshman Representative Ilhan Omar has been under fire for her anti-semitic comments recently but the New York Times recently decided to take anti-semitism to another level.

According to Town Hall:

Amid Ilhan Omar reveling in the celebratory parade thrown for her anti-Semitism by liberals, Democrats, and white supremacists alike, The New York Times had entered the anti-Semitism ring—determined to win big. "Hold my beer, Ilhan Omar," The New York Times insinuated, as they proceed to marvel in the dehumanization of Jews. The New York Times printed a Nazist reincarnation of a cartoon: a Jewish leader depicted as a dog, wearing a Jewish Star of David, the dog being walked by our president as he adorns a Jewish kippah and sunglasses to indicating blindness, our president holding on to a leash attached to the Jewish star of the dog leading him.

The image was intended as derogatory commentary on the famous friendship between the two Western leaders, most recently in the news after Benjamin Netanyahu announced that he is naming new neighborhoods in the Golan Heights after Donald Trump in a show of gratitude to Trump for his unfettered support of Israel.

The Times attempted to issue an "apology":

After sharp criticism, The New York Times made an attempt at an apology two days after the Thursday edition was published - on Twitter - and wrote that they will print a small apology note in Monday’s edition. “A political cartoon in the international print edition of The New York Times on Thursday included anti-Semitic tropes,” read the Time’s editor note posted to Twitter in advance of print publication. “The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it.” The apology note will not contain a large cartoon to attract any attention, and the plain, small text is unlikely to be read or even noticed in any way comparable to that of the large, colorful image of hate.


Many prominent political individuals came out criticizing the Times for its decision to run the cartoon. 

Political law attorney Dan Backer who has filed FEC complaints against Hillary Clinton and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explains why this rise of anti-semitism among the left is happening:

But why is this happening? Why are Democrats in a race to burn bridges with pro-Israel and Jewish communities? “Democrats are reaching a tipping point where they can no longer fake caring about their Jewish donors while also appeasing their anti-Semitic activist base, personified by corrupt bigots like Ilhan Omar,” advised political law attorney Dan Backer, the name behind the Hillary Clinton and Alexandria Ocasio-CortezFEC complaints. “Socialism is and always has been inherently anti-Semitic. The left, in fact, has always been anti-Semitic,” he told TownHall. “As the more virulent anti-semites like Omar increasingly drive the party’s activist base, the Democrats are making a simple calculation - they get more votes by being anti-Semitic than being decent and honorable. It’s the same reason they are increasingly abandoning the interests of African Americans - and all Americans - while pursuing illegal immigrant voting rights. The left has only ever cared about power, and if they need to toss the Jews under the train to get more of it, they will,” Backer opined astutely.

The report points to the fact that as the Democrats move more socialist the rise in anti-semitism will follow.
