Congressman Thomas Massie put a controversial meme on X that has Jewish officials of our government giving their usual spiel about antisemitism.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) tweeted at conservative Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) to take down what he called an “antisemitic, disgusting dangerous post” on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, that accuses Congress of supporting Zionism.
Schumer reacted to Massie’s post, which used a popular meme format to depict rapper Drake recoiling at the bolded text “American Patriotism” and nodding approvingly at “Zionism.” Superimposed over Drake’s image is “Congress these days.”
“Rep. Massie, you’re a sitting Member of Congress. This is antisemitic, disgusting, dangerous, and exactly the type of thing I was talking about it my Senate address. Take this down,” Schumer wrote in a repost of Massie’s meme on X.
Schumer is the first Jewish Senate majority leader and the highest ranking Jewish congressional leader in American history.
The reason I mention this is because there is a difference between anti-Zionism and antisemitism, as the article points out… And the US government is in fact very pro-Zionist.
