Monday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin weighed in on the latest media firestorm surrounding Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and their canceled trip to Israel.

Last week, the pair were denied entry to the Jewish state ahead of a planned visit because of their support for the anti-Semitic BDS movement, per Israeli law. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu determined the trip’s “sole purpose is to strengthen the boycott and delegitimize Israel.” Tlaib later canceled plans to visit her grandmother after being given special permission because, she said, the Jewish country tried to “silence” her.

“I am disgusted with the excuses for these two reprobates,” Levin began. “I am disgusted with the Democrat Party, which is increasingly accepting of neo-Nazi comments and anti-Semitism and bigotry. I am disgusted by the same media that accuses the president of being Hitler but allows these two to act as if they’re civil rights activists for the Arabs.”

Levin also pointed out that Omar and Tlaib planned to go on their trip organized by Miftah, a virulently anti-Semitic organization with a history of trying to gin up sympathy for terror groups, instead of going on the large congressional delegation trip earlier this month.

Levin then tore into Jewish Democrats Sen. Chuck Schumer, Rep. Jerry Nadler, and Rep. Eliot Engel for defending the freshman duo: “Is there there a Democrat in Congress who’s criticizing them? Not one.”

“This poison is spreading; this cancer is spreading; it’s getting worse,” Levin concluded of Omar and Tlaib’s anti-Israel rhetoric and beliefs, noting how many groups have rallied around them, including some Jewish groups. “All the weak, soft underbelly of the Jewish establishment has rallied around two anti-Semites who would love nothing more than to see the complete extermination of the state of Israel. It’s a sickening spectacle.”
