After Declaring the Tea Party is Dead Many Times Over, Liberals Scramble to Anti-Semitism as Explanation for Shocking Eric Cantor Defeat
Among all the explanations for why House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was so easily defeated by an Economics professor with as little money as he has political experience, the most ridiculous is that from the left attempting to blame antisemitism. Yes, really.
There will be lots of 2nd guessing tmw on Cantor loss #VA07. Surely will focus on debt ceiling/leadership role, but his religion a role too?

Never mind that Virginians elected Jewish Cantor seven times before this, and didn’t seem to mind that he was Jewish. No, it must be some kind of bigotry because peevish, tiny liberal lizard-brains can’t possibly conceive of any other explanation for election results! Twitchy found many tweets implying the surprise bigotry:
“@Redistrict: but his religion a role too?” Tea partiers hate non Christians

Did Eric Cantor Lose Because He's Jewish? http://t.co/T2kdWC85zz

Cantor is only Jewish Republican in Congress still, right?
— Ben Goodman (@BenGoodman) June 11, 2014
So the only Jewish Republican in Congress (either house) is about to lose his primary?

Eric Cantor was the only Jewish Republican in Congress.

It can't be undersold that Eric Cantor was the last Jewish Congressional Republican.

What happened to Eric Cantor? Did his district find out he's Jewish?

Damn, Eric Cantor. Also, possibly of note: the Republican party just primaried out its only Jewish Congressman.

Also tonight, GOP Jewish caucus basically shattered. Or decimated ten times over.

The real news here is that the House Republican Jewish caucus has just lost 100% of its membership #VA07 #Cantor

This guy can barely hold himself back!
OK #Jewish politicos, how does everyone feel about Eric Cantor's loss to this #teaparty dude Brat? Trying to hold my anti-tea rhetoric back.

Great political analysis from the pea-brained left! I guess everyone in his district suddenly discovered he was Jewish in time for this election just like when America suddenly discovered Obama was black after we elected him and became raging racists!
