Domenech: Dems Aren’t Rejecting Anti-Semitism as They Historically Show When it Comes to Racism

‘There has been an increased rise in anti-Semitic attacks across this country in ways that should disturb all of us’

TRANSCRIPT:

DOMENECH: "There has been an increased rise in anti-Semitic attacks across this country in ways that should disturb all of us. In major cities we see Jewish Americans targeted in ways that are absolutely unacceptable. And I would expect that we would have more moral authority from the kind of leadership that we have seen historically from the Democratic Party and rejecting racism when it comes to this type of activity. And within their own caucus, within their own conference, they need to really come down on this in a very forceful way. This is putting people’s lives in danger. That’s not an exaggeration. And I think that in this instance, I’m unfortunately very disappointed in the fact that this hasn’t been stamped out earlier in this process. We have seen so much from Rep. Omar that should disturb us when it comes to this type of activity, and I think that we really need to have a clamped down kind of attitude toward it. Look, there is all sorts of irresponsible members who are elected to Congress over the years. This is not a new thing. But, in this instance, in this moment, we are seeing this rise in anti-Semitic attacks that must be met and met forcefully in order to stop it and cut it off."
