Omar apologized for her rhetoric, but contextualized her comments as being critical of the Israeli government and the corruption of D.C. lobbyists.
This has been the go-to dem. defense for accusations of antisemitism.
Rogan, being he’s out of his depth on most issues he talks about on his show, tried to defend her by saying she was right about Jewish people liking money, something Omar explicitly claimed she was not saying.
Whether you believe Omar’s expkanation or not, the fact is she claimed she was talking about the government and Rogan defended her by claiming she was right about Jews as a group of people.
Joe has a 12 year old’s grasp of everything. It’s embarrassing.
Did she even say “Jews are into money”? Not at all.
She said something in Israeli politics was “all about the Benjamins”, and Republicans pretended to be outraged and called her a bigot, because their bigoted members and voters hate moooslims and infantalize Israel because of their literal interpretation of the bible.
Take any group of people at the top of a societal hierarchy and the commonality they all share is money and using it to retain their power via means of exploitation, coercion, and corruption; not a religion.
