Tweet of the Day: Former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney promotes anti-Semitic ‘comedian’ (Video)

Tweet of the Day: Former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney promotes anti-Semitic ‘comedian’ (Video)

Remember Cynthia McKinney, the far-left former congresswoman from Georgia who peddled conspiracy theories in the wake of 9/11 (viz., the Jews done it) and distinguished herself by her intense opposition to the state of Israel? You might also remember McKinney for her 2006 assault of a Capitol Hill Police officer who had the temerity to stop her to ask for her identification.

McKinney has been keeping a relatively low profile since losing her seat in Congress in 2006 (she lost her mind much earlier), but she is back to tell her 10,000(!) Twitter followers about a not-so-fresh, not-so-young “comic” whom she compares to Jon Stewart:

So who is this man who McKinney finds positively hilarious? Dieudonné, short for Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, is inventor of among other things the “reverse Nazi salute,” which he calls the “quenelle” and serves as the name of his web show. Like McKinney, he is a devout anti-Semite and has described Holocaust remembrance as “memorial pornography.” McKinney’s recommendation on Twitter generated a response she probably wasn’t anticipating. Here’s a sample:
