The Federalist’s Bre Payton has the story of how Reid repeatedly spewed anti-Semitic tropes in her blog. Like the time in 2005 when Reid showed support for Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s call to relocate the “Zionist regime” in Israel to Europe. Reid wrote, “He [God] can’t just give you land 1,000 years ago that you can come back and claim today.” Charming.
