Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, complained that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was being antisemitic on Twitter after the Texas lawmaker remarked that Wall Street billionaire Michael Bloomberg “owns the media.”
Cruz’s remark was made in reference to another tweet showing a headline from media publication Bloomberg.com, captioned “Bloomberg campaign says it’s a two-man race for the nomination per Bloomberg the news organization owned and controlled by Bloomberg.”
“It’s almost as if he owns the media,” Cruz wrote…
Greenblatt’s allegations are particularly bizarre since, as pointed out by Greenblatt himself, Cruz is a lifelong Zionist and opponent of antisemitism.
Cruz once authored a congressional resolution explicitly condemning antisemitism.
Twitter users mocked Greenblatt in his own replies for his less-than-credible cries of outrage over Cruz’s statement.
