Meghan McCain Accuses Jewish Cartoonist Eli Valley of Anti-Semitism After He Mocks Her in Cartoon

by Pardes Seleh | Mar 8th, 2019, 3:10 pm

The View hostess Meghan McCain accused Jewish cartoonist Eli Valley of anti-Semitism Friday afternoon, after he tweeted a cartoon depicting her crying over Rep. Ilhan Omars (D-MN) comments about Israel.




Valley responded with more cartoons surrounding Omar which he has called Omartoons, which mock the Republican Party for crying about anti-Semitism on the left when there are similar characters on the right. His original cartoon of McCain featured her wearing a cross while surrounding herself with Jewish artifacts and crying about anti-Semitism.

1. Getting mighty tired

of all the gentiles who think they can lecture me and any other Jew about what anti-semitism is. I would never presume to tell a black person what they should consider bigotry.

4. "Gentile", actually, could be viewed as a discriminatory term

not normally used by people who don't self-define as "Jews".

5. So what word would describe

those who aren't Jewish? All of them who aren't Jewish? Because we actually do have a Yiddish term for it that I wont use as I find it offensive.

6. I honestly see no need for such a term, nor such a concept, really.

It sems to be a clear case of what Edward Sad termed "othering".

I don't think, for the Romans of that empire, the human social world was thought of as being so simple as "citizens" and "barbarians". For reality is more complex.

Not even us Brits seem to have ever seen ourselves as so isolated.

7. I'm going to fight you on this one

You know what I was trying to say, find me a politically correct way to say non-Jews shouldn't be telling actual Jews what anti-semitism is.

9. Yes. Come on, if you think about it, of course you, and other Jews,

are on the receiving end of genuine antisemitism so of course you are the first to know what it is and to define it, and we others, however we might define ourselves, should, if we are healthy human beings, be able to empathise with you, to learn from you and to understand.

And that understanding, that empathy, means that of course non-Jews need to know what antisemitism is.

8. I never heard of "Gentile" being offensive. The Momons appropriated it to refer to anyone not Mormon

...which I find amusing, and my husband thinks is kind of hilarious. As he says, Salt Lake City is the only place in the world he (a Jew) is considered a Gentile.

10. It just seems weird to me, but then I'm in Europe,

a European I left UK a long time ago. Spain, the Mediterranean/African world... The cultural diversity and yet similarities are too rich to simplify to just "us" and "them".

2. M McCain is a RWer . . .

The attacks on her father is sick, and she still supports them and that jerk in the WH.
