Controversy over DNC’s Jewish Outreach Liason



Text  



The Internet is starting to pick up on this story from the Washington Free Beacon about the Democratic National Committee’s new Jewish outreach liaison, Danielle Gilbert:

The Democratic Party’s newly appointed Jewish outreach liaison is pictured on Facebook in a series of provocative photos with her friends holding dollar bills and referring to themselves as “Jewbags” and the “Jew cash money team.”

 

Add this to the growing list of examples of the perils of Facebook and social media. It’s an offensive joke and she should know better. Still, there is something invasive and tawdry in reposting someone’s Facebook photos. We should criticize her for her support of organizations such as J Street. Let’s debate the Democrats’ dangerous and failed policies on the Middle East and leave the college photos out of it.
