The Radical Democrat AOC “Squad” All Attended Netroots Conference – Said Nothing about the Anti-Semitic “Zionism is Racism” T-Shirts
The far left Netroots Nation conference was held last weekend in Philadelphia.
“The Squad” of radical freshmen representatives all spoke at this year’s event.
AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley were top speakers this year.
So were several Democratic Presidential candidates.
Not a one of them said anything about the hateful anti-Semitic “Zionism is Racism” T-shirts that were being sold there.
Jewish Insider reported:
Former CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill claimed that news outlets like NBC and ABC were “Zionist organizations” that produced “Zionist content,” during a panel on Friday at the annual Netroots Nation summit held by progressive activists in Philadelphia.
The summit describes itself as “the largest annual conference for progressives” and has long been a stop for Democratic presidential hopefuls, including this year.
Hill’s comments came less than a year after he lost his CNN perch after calling for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea,” during an appearance at the U.N. The statement was interpreted by many as a call for the elimination of Israel, something Hill denied.
The Netroots conference sold shirts equating Zionism to racism.
