Rich Irony? USA Today Quoted anti-Israel Democrat Keith Ellison’s Tweets about Anti-Semitism and Trump

Democratic congressman Keith Ellison’s tweets on Donald Trump and anti-Semitism made it into a USA Today article [1] which criticized Trump on the alleged dancing around the issue of anti-Semitism and outright condemnation of it.

This is the same Representative Ellison who has strong anti-Israeli ties. A Jewish Democratic Party donor criticized [4] Ellison’s anti-Israeli ties and called him an “anti-Semite.” The Anti-Defamation League said Ellison’s past remarks about Israel are “disqualifying” him [5] in his run to head the Democratic National Committee.

Based on that knowledge alone, he should not be cited as a source on anti-Semitism based on his history and his ties.
