Apparently, the Democrats' Comms Director Thinks Anti-Semitism Is Funny

Anti-Semitic acts are on the rise, but Democrats apparently think it’s funny.

Matt Wolking, a congressional staffer, tweeted out a Slate tweet that characterized the midterm votes as a reflection of how America feels about racism and bigotry. Wolking responded to Slate by pointing out that it’s indeed true, and that Republicans will likely come out to vote against Democratic silence or support of the bigotry and racism of the Democrat party, taking a special moment to highlight the left’s odd silence on hate preacher, mega anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.


“So true,” Wolking tweeted. “The racism endorsed and tolerated by the Farrakhan Democrats, the bigotry the establishment media exhibits against half the country, and the hatred of Christians, conservatives, and men smeared by the radical left as rubes and rapists.”

Apparently, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s deputy communications director, Patrick Burgwinkle (no, that’s his real name) thinks all that is actually funny, responding with a simple “lol.”

Wolking responded by reminding Burgwinkle that anti-Semitism isn’t funny, even if the anti-Semitism is coming from someone the left is friendly with.

Many on the left seem to be VERY silent when it comes to Louis Farrakhan. In fact, one of the left’s most celebrated figures, Linda Sarsour, considers Farrakhan the leader to the Women’s March leaders.


Recently, Farrakhan ran into some controversy when he led a “Death to America” chant in Iran.

The Democrats, especially those in the DCCC, apparently don’t think this is anything to take seriously. In fact, for them, the anti-Semitism that Louis Farrakhan promotes is apparently funny.

This wouldn’t be the only time a Democratic official endorsed hateful members of American society. Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee Keith Ellison had no problem endorsing Antifa, the domestic terrorist group known for its use of violence and destruction.
