Comedian Roseanne Barr claim of “We have Hamas in Congress” is in reference to the two radical Muslim congressional freshman in the class of 2019, which includes the anti-Israel/antisemitic Palestinian Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Somali Ilhan Omar (D-MN), both of whom advocate for Israel’s economic destruction via BDS.
Breitbart Conservative actress Roseanne Barr came out swinging against newly-elected Congresswomen Rashida Tliab and Ilhan Omar, for what he sees as harsh anti-Semitic views. Fox News reported that Roseanne Barr made a bold declaration about newly sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. during the former ABC sitcom star’s four-day trip in Israel.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in Tel Aviv on Monday evening, Barr said BDS has “infected” the Democratic Party.
Both Tlaib and Omar have come under fire for invoking anti-Semitic tropes in relation to Israel. Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim, seemingly deployed a “dual loyalty” canard when she accused proponents of anti-BDS legislation of “forgetting which country they represent,” while Somali Muslim Omar once charged “evil” Israel with “hypnotizing the world.”
Barr pooh-poohed recent remarks made by two top Jewish Democrats, Reps. Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Ted Deutch (D-FL), who maintained that the Democratic Party will remain steadfast in its support of Israel and that Omar and Tlaib are the only two people to express such views within the party.
“There’s a lot more than that,” she said. “The Democratic Party will eventually move to [being] pro-BDS,” Barr told Breitbart News. According to the funnywoman, “BDS is another incarnation of Jew-hating” that has been going on for centuries.
“It’s a boycott of Jewish business worldwide,” she said. “Nobody knows that because they think it’s about the ‘occupation,’ which doesn’t exist of course.”
Barr maintained that since the BDS movement does not limit itself to boycotting Israeli companies and institutions, but expressly supports the boycott of companies that have any dealings with Israel — a large percentage of which are naturally Jewish-owned — the boycott is comparable to that of Nazi Germany.
“So it’s a Nazi boycott on Jewish business in shorthand,” she said. “You can barely make people listen to that because they’re so anti-Semitic,” she went on to charge, “including Jews in America on the left. They’re complete anti-Semites.”
“They hate Jews, they hate Judaism and they hate the Jewish state because it’s chic. And they don’t know anything about it,” she maintained. According to Barr, the left has found “an acceptable target for bigotry” with Jews.
“There is no occupation,” Barr said, referring to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “The only occupation I see is they built a dome on top of our Temple and I’m not allowed to pray at my holiest site.”
Earlier on Monday, Barr gave a speech to an enthusiastic audience of some 500 Israelis and new immigrants in Tel Aviv organized by the Tel Aviv International Salon in conjunction with the Times of Israel.
She told the audience that her eponymous show was cancelled last year because she was essentially boycotted. “I was BDSed by ABC,” Barr said in a comment that was met with resounding applause.
When asked if she would forgive her former cast-mates — Sara Gilbert, Kathy Griffin and Sandra Bernhard — for failing to stand up for her in the wake of her infamous tweet against former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, an acerbic Barr said, “I will if they apologize. But they’re leftists and leftists never apologize.”
MWNews Now, Barr is blasting the Women’s March leaders in Tel Aviv, paying special attention to Linda Sarsour. Roseanne has had a long feud with the pro-Sharia Women’s March leader. “Sarsour is a prominent Palestinian-American activist known for her anti-Israeli views. During an interview with the Nation, Sarsour claimed those who identify as Zionists cannot be feminists because they are ignoring the rights of Palestinian women,” the Free Beacon reported.
Sarsour also has a history of also supporting the terrorism-funding Muslim Brotherhood. She tweeted back in 2011 when the Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi came to power in Eygpt (only to be ousted by the Egyptian people one year later and put in jail for his crimes against humanity, where he remains today).
These statements from Sarsour started the feud with Barr, who took to social media and let the pro-Sharia law Women’s March leader know she wasn’t buying it. Barr tweeteda response to Sarsour, “Is it even possible to be a pro-Palestinian feminist?” She made the point that in Muslim countries women are treated like property and second-class citizens.
Sarsour had no good comeback and immediately blocked Roseanne on Twitter. Now, the outspoken comedian just ripped Sarsour and her cohorts in front of a crowd of 500 in Israel.
Sarsour, one of the leaders of the feminist anti-Trump Women’s March, is the daughter of Palestinian Arab immigrants, and is a long-time anti-Israel activist and Sharia law apologist. Sarsour praised stone-throwing terroriststargeting Jews, calling such attacks “the definition of courage”, and decried Zionism as “creepy”.
In 2011, Sarsour blasted author Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, both critics of Islam, musing that she wished she could remove their reproductive organs because they “don’t deserve to be women.”
A year later, Sarsour admitted that several of her relatives in Israel were arrested for alleged ties to the Hamas terror group.
