When last we left you, Florida Democrat Pam Keith spent her early Friday morning letting the world know that the “GOP = white supremacy Sharia.” A couple of hours later she was still on a roll, demanding that women participate in a sex strike against conservative men because abortion reasons and stuff.
Because Ms. Keith, a failed primary candidate for the U.S. House and Senate, does her best ranting in the early hours of the morning, she spent her Tuesday morning waging a Twitter war on anyone who dared to speak against freshman Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN-5) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI-13).
When you see an attack on @IlhanMN or @RashidaTlaib KNOW that it is not because they are anti-Semitic, but rather because their attackers are Islamophobic. It is NEVER about their intentions. It is ALWAYS because the right sees their presence in Congress as an affront.

She spent the next several tweets attempting to defend Tlaib’s most recent anti-Semitical remarks and concluded by saying that the “attacks” on Tlaib were “coordinated and with specific purpose of intimidating her and unleashing the kind of hatred that Ilhan received. I am just calling that CRAP OUT!”
As Sarah at Twitchy documented extensively, the pushback was swift, with many Twitter users correctly pointing out that Keith’s passionate defenses of Omar’s and Tlaib’s well-documented anti-Semitism effectively made her an enabler of anti-Semitism herself.
One person who weighed in on Keith’s comments, however, agreed wholeheartedly with her assessment:

Looks like Keith has a new bestie, which could be a problem for her if she decides to run for Florida’s 18th Congressional District seat again. A portion of that district is in Palm Beach County, which has a large Jewish population.
