A letter sent by National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer to fellow party members identified three “left-wing radicals” that he says “bought control of Congress for the Democrats.” They are all Jewish.
Tom Emmer represents Minnesota’s Sixth District in the female controlled US House of Representatives. Emmer calls out George Soros, Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg in letter.
“These left-wing radicals essentially BOUGHT control of Congress for the Democrats”, while 80% of the US Senators also carry a Jewish passport.
Soros and Bloomberg are Jewish and Steyer had a Jewish father and has in the past identified as Jewish, although now he is a practicing Episcopalian.
The three men have been targeted with the same accusation by several Republican and conservative figures, including former House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota in a tweet earlier this year suggested that the pro-Israel lobby had bought its influence on Capitol Hill.
Steve Hunegs, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, criticized Emmer’s letter but told the newspaper that he is “a good friend to the Jewish community in Minnesota.”
The NRCC under Emmer has repeatedly accused Democrats of anti-Semitism, especially Omar, a Minneapolis-based American Jewish World newspaper reported.
