The idiot doesn’t know a fire extinguisher from an exit sign
Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., was criticized this week for saying that by calling for a cease-fire in Gaza, he was “uplifting deeply what it actually means to be Jewish.”
Rep. Bowman spoke at the Rabbis for Ceasefire event at the Capitol Monday night, along with Squad members Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, and other lawmakers.
After noting that some rabbis in his own district had written a letter against his push for a cease-fire, he those who spoke and declared, “I’ve heard what was said here this evening before, that by me calling for a cease-fire with my colleagues and centering humanity, I am uplifting deeply what it actually means to be Jewish, because I’m centering the way in which God wants us to live with each other.”
Commentators on social media condemned Bowman for his statement, which some interpreted as the congressman speaking for the Jewish people.
“Sir, are you Gentilesplaining what it means to be Jewish…to Jews?” Fox News contributor Guy Benson wrote, then referenced Bowman infamously pulling the fire alarm during voting in September.
“Here comes Jamaal Bowman of the DSA, to tell America’s Jews what it actually means to be Jewish,” National Review writer Jeff Blehar posted.
