Comedian Michael Rapaport launched a profanity-laden tirade against Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The actor declared the Squad to be "the biggest f***ing squad of Jew haters in the United States."
The opinionated actor added, "These 3 have hypnotized the World into thinking they’re not All About The Benjamin’s & will soon be out of Politics with a Production Company making Propaganda Content against #jewish people MARK MY WORDS!!!!"
Rapaport is referencing two anti-Semitic incidents involving Omar.
In a tweet from 2012, Omar wrote, "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel."
In 2019, Omar sparked outrage when she suggested the Republican Party's overwhelming support for Israel is "all about the Benjamins."
Top Democrats – including Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif), Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), James Clyburn (D-S.C.), and Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) – released a statement condemning Omar's "deeply offensive" comments as "anti-Semitic tropes" and "prejudicial accusations."
Rapaport blasted the Squad members in the Instagram video for spreading "fake news" regarding the explosion near a hospital in Gaza.
Rapaport ranted to his 2.1 million Instagram followers, "AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, you fake news f***s! You're just as bad as Muppet-face Marjorie Taylor Greene, except I haven't come up with nicknames for you yet!"
"Take down that f***ng bulls**t, you f***ing Jew haters," Rapaport told the progressive Democrats. "You hate the Jews. You've always hated the Jews. It's been one of your agendas to perpetuate Jew hate."
"Take down your f***ing fake news tweets. Rescind your f***ing comments, rescind your f***ing fake news statements," the "True Romance" actor fumed. "You're in government, you motherf***ers!"
"The Squad – the biggest f***ing squad of Jew haters the United States government has ever seen," he barked. "Rescind those f***ing statements you f***ing sick Jew haters, you."
Rapaport said he has no problem criticizing Democrats.
"Don't get it twisted," Rapaport noted. "I ain't a f***ing Democrat. I ain't a Republican. I don't like any of you. I don't trust any of you."
Hamas authorities accused Israel of carrying out an airstrike on the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza – allegedly killing over 500 people.
However, IDF vehemently denies bombing the hospital. Also, U.S. intelligence officials have determined that the blast at a Gaza hospital was caused by Palestinian fighters. Video footage appears to show a failed rocket slam back to the ground shortly after launch.
Tlaib and Omar immediately pushed the propaganda from Hamas.
Tlaib declared on Tuesday, "Israel just bombed the Baptist Hospital killing 500 Palestinians (doctors, children, patients) just like that. @POTUS this is what happens when you refuse to facilitate a ceasefire & help de-escalate. Your war and destruction only approach has opened my eyes and many Palestinian Americans and Muslim Americans like me. We will remember where you stood."
Tlaib has not yet deleted the tweet or updated it with the revelations by Israeli and U.S. intelligence.
Omar tweeted, "Bombing a hospital is among the gravest of war crimes. The IDF reportedly blowing up one of the few places the injured and wounded can seek medical treatment and shelter during a war is horrific."
Omar tried to walk back her original post about the airstrike: "Our office cited an AP report yesterday that the IDF had hit a Baptist hospital in Gaza. Since then, the IDF denied responsibility and the US intelligence assessment is that this was not done by Israel."
Unironically, Omar then lectured about sharing misinformation online, "It is a reminder that information is often unreliable and disputed in the fog of war (especially on Twitter where misinformation is rampant). We all have a responsibility to ensure information we are sharing is from credible sources and to acknowledge as new reports come in."
AOC did not mention the blast near the hospital in Gaza.
Ocasio-Cortez previously condemned the Hamas attack "in the strongest possible terms" and added, "No child and family should ever endure this kind of violence and fear, and this violence will not solve the ongoing oppression and occupation in the region."
AOC has called for an "immediate ceasefire and de-escalation."
