During Senator Sheldon Whitehouse’s (D-RI) questioning of Amy Coney Barrett this Tuesday, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) posted an image to her Twitter account charactering Whitehouse as being funded by George Soros, a sentiment that many see to be an antisemitic trope.
“Here @SenWhitehouse, I fixed it for you,” Blackburn wrote along with a photoshopped image of Whitehouse holding a placard with Soros’ image on it. The photoshopped chyron in the image reads, “George Soros is funding radical left activists.”

She’s really into boutique anti semitism too. That way she can get her hair done at the same time.

Marsha, anti-Semitic dog whistles are supposed to be subtle. 🙄
