Yup, this is just FURTHER antisemitism from the Virginia GOP. This is dangerous and will put Jewish Virginians in danger.
This response to @RepElaineLuria, who is Jewish, by the VA GOP makes things worse, not better. And no, George Soros is NOT a "dangerous threat to our country," but the Trumpist GOP certainly is. bluevirginia.us/2022/12/deleโ€ฆ cc: @vademocrats @ADL @JGreenblattADL

For 2 months Jim Jordan refused to delete this tweet. Even after Kanye declared war on Jews. As he usually does, Jim looked the other way. Only after Kanye praised Hitler today did Jim delete the tweet. We have the receipts, Jim. And for 2 months you were cool with Jew-bashing.

Republicans have elected a woman whose husband showed his penis to young girls at a bowling alley. Don't let them forget that.

Today is Javy Bรกez's birthday. This is something he did, and it still mesmerizes me to this day.

I hate playing โ€œgotchaโ€ โ€” regardless of the side. But Iโ€™m striving to understand why โ€” during week of Trump/Kanye/Fuentes โ€” an RNC-approved email solicitation would draw attention to the fact it is only โ€œ88 wordsโ€ long. I mean, is there a non-awful explanation? Anyone home?

Am I the only one who doesnโ€™t understand why Al Franken had to resign for a joke photo he took years before he was a senator, but elected officials who participated in or encouraged an armed insurrection to overthrow our democracy are allowed to stay in government?

In today's Profile in Courage, Hawley says that he supposes Trump "can have dinner with whomever he wants to."

I was just on a flight w/ @MarshaBlackburn. She and her staff refused to answer whether it was appropriate for President Trump to dine with a neo-Nazi. #TheUndercurrent

As DeSantis makes a big show of going after drag shows, LGBTQ-friendly books in schools, and medical care for trans kids, Florida's child welfare system is literally complicit in sex trafficking
Stunning investigative report from โฆ@SunSentinelโฉ โ€œWhen Floridaโ€™s child welfare system takes in a girl, the odds she will be trafficked for sex increase.โ€ sun-sentinel.com/local/traffโ€ฆ

Iโ€™ll put my reputation up against yours any day. Iโ€™ve spent my entire adult life in service to my country. Upheld my oath to protect & defend this nation at great personal cost. Youโ€™ve demonstrated yourself to be a purveyor of hate and division. Let history be the judge.
