Scott's tweet on Wednesday included an article by National Review, detailing a resolution introduced by Omar that declares support for the anti-Israel Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The proposed resolution seeks to essentially boycott Israel, pushing back against laws that prevent such measures.
"If this isn’t clear enough I don’t know what is.
’s actions are a clear example of anti-Semitism," Scott said in his tweet. "It's disgusting."
Scott exposing the hypocrisy on "The Squad" comes in the wake of the media's coverage of Trump's tweet. On Monday, the president took to Twitter, telling the progressive Democratic congresswomen who criticize the U.S. should instead "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."
The tweets were directed towards Omar and her Democratic friends, Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and created a firestorm in the progressive community, with many calling the president's tweet "racist."
Labeling Trump as a racist is not a new tactic from the Democratic Party. It has become commonplace in today's political arena. In fact, the majority of liberal candidates running for president are running on that platform, with many of them using it to unite their base.
It's true, Trump's tweet could've been worded better -- something Scott has made clear -- but his underlying message is something many in America have been echoing since electing him: if you don't like America, you can leave.
While the media's coverage continues to revolve around the word's used by Trump, they constantly neglect the words -- or lack thereof -- from far-left officials like Omar and Ocasio-Cortez. Just this week, both refused to condemn Antifa terrorist attacks against ICE.
Omar went a step further this week, also refusing to condemn Al-Qaeda -- the terrorist group behind the 9/11 attacks.
Though Trump is known for his off the cuff remarks, many in America find that appealing. As much as Republicans vote for Republicans, many in the U.S. like Trump because he says what so many can't. Furthermore, much of his allure comes from the fact that he calls out people and politicians who refuse to share America's values.
It's true, Trump could probably benefit from adjusting his tone. While his approval rating rose by 5 percentage points after his tweet, he'll have to pull in the reins on his rhetoric as 2020 approaches to appeal to moderate voters.
Even with the backlash, Trump has the left eating out the palm of his hand. The outrage from Democrats continues to benefit the president, serving less like a coup d'état and more as an in-kind contribution to Trump's re-election campaign.
At the end of the day, there are two kinds of Trump supporters: those who like that he fights back, and those who love his policies but wish he would tweet less. Either way, both groups agree: the economy is doing well under Trump. Unlike Democrats, conservatives aren't divided on the issues, and that doesn't bode well for their hopes to unseat Trump in 2020.
Scott's remarks have been well-received by many on the right, and him shining the light of the double-standard in the media is greatly needed. While outlets like CNN and MSNBC lambast the president at every waking moment, they blindly neglect the fact this new wave of Democratic lawmakers are eroding the fabric of America. Whether through their policies or political grandstanding, the Democrats and their actions are proving more detrimental to society than anything the president has said.
Words matter, but so does silence. Many on the political left are proving that their silence is deafening.
