Rep. Ilhan Omar’s staffer calls anti-Semitism a ‘right-wing force’ despite Dem being accused of bigotry

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s communications director is now joining his boss in drawing swift criticism for online posts.

Jeremy Slevin, a top member of the Minnesota Democrat’s staff, posted online this week that “anti-Semitism is a right-wing force,” despite the accusations of bigotry his boss has faced over some controversial comments.

 Slevin’s message came after the congresswoman attacked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his speech at the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) where he mentioned her and her comments, which some have deemed as anti-Semitic.

“Anti-Semitism is a right-wing force,” Slevin wrote multiple times, quoting Omar’s tweet that calls on her supporters to “confront hate and bigotry in all its forms.”

Slevin was immediately criticized on social media, with many pointing that anti-Semitism isn’t manifested only within one particular political leaning and could be found across the spectrum.
