Check out this other doodle by anti-Semitic cartoonist shared by Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib

 Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar capped off a week of controversy over being banned from Israel for their BDS activism by posting the following anti-Semitic cartoon to their Instagram feeds. The cartoonist, Carlos Latuff, came in second place in Iran’s International Holocaust Cartoon Contest in 2006:
Oof. Looks like both Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib shared this awful Carlos Latuff cartoon in Instagram stories yesterday. In 2006, Latuff came in second in Iran's International Holocaust Cartoon Contest, which is a thing that exists, in case you thought the TL couldn't get any worse.

We’re sure they were both flattered to be featured in a Latuff cartoon, but the Reagan Battalion looked back a few years and found some of the same cartoonist’s other work.
So @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib both shared a cartoon by a cartoonist who not only took part in Iran’s holocaust denial cartoon contest, but also celebrates the death of American soldiers.

You might think that the firefighters in the media would be knocking on their office doors asking them to denounce the cartoonist’s other work. “We know you’re sick of Muslims having to answer for terrorism, and we’re sorry to ask, but could you spare a word?”
Nah, it didn’t come up. Nor did either congresswoman condemn Palestinian terrorism, not that they would anyway; like they’ve made clear, they’re tired of Muslims being made to explain when some people do something.
The picture that they shared was wrong, but sharing a picture from one artist isn’t an endorsement of everything they’ve ever done.

Absolutely agreed. But maybe it’s time to take down the Instagram posts now that they now the cartoonist’s background a little better?
