Despicable: Ted Lieu DRAGGED so much for anti-Semitic trope about Amb. Friedman that he DELETES and apologizes (sorta)

Democrats couldn’t wait to fall all OVER themselves trying to defend Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from mean ol’ Israel banning the two openly anti-Semitic representatives from entering their country. Note, if you find yourself using anti-Semitic phrasing to defend your fellow Democrats you’re doing it wrong.
Like Ted Lieu.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) accuses U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, who is Jewish, of having dual loyalties:

“Friedman ... should resign because he doesn’t seem to understand that his allegiance is to America, not to [Israel]”

The dual loyalty canard is an anti-Semitic trope

Ted is on a roll. Yikes. C’mon, SHE JUST WANTS TO VISIT HER GRANDMOTER!
And check out CNN’s chyron.
These people.

The Left has so normalized anti-Semitism in their own party they don’t seem to understand they’re using anti-Semitic language.
Ted just throws it around like he’s making a shopping list for Whole Foods.
I see @tedlieu deleted and sort-of apologized. Hopefully he will be more careful about accusing people he disagrees with of foreign loyalties in the future.

Deleted the tweet but he can’t go back in time and take his comments on CNN back.
So the emphasis should be on ‘sort-of’ apologized.
It has been brought to my attention that my prior tweet to @USAmbIsrael raises dual loyalty allegations that have historically caused harm to the Jewish community. That is a legitimate concern. I am therefore deleting the tweet.

He didn’t know he was being an anti-Semitic creep and he’s super sorry.
We wish we could say this is unreal but sadly it’s all TOO real.
Interestingly enough, he did not delete this one:
Hey @SteveScalise: You are an American Member of Congress. Your allegiance should be to America, not to a foreign government. You should be defending the right of Americans to travel to other countries. If you don't understand that, you should find another line of work. https://twitter.com/ShiaKapos/status/1162070236918689792
