Comedic actor and outspoken Israel supporter Jon Lovitz told Fox News Digital that Sen. Bernie Sanders is the “best example” of a “self-loathing Jew.”
Best known from his SNL days, he called Sanders “disgusting,” and mocked how the politician describes himself as a “Democratic Socialist,” versus being a communist.
“You know the difference between a communist and a Democratic Socialist?” said Lovitz.
“A Democratic Socialist is somebody you vote for, and then they take all your money and give back what they think you need. A communist — they just appoint themselves. There’s no election and they do the exact same thing. That’s the only difference.”
Lovitz, who says he’s socially liberal but fiscally conservative, said while Democrats were pro-Israel in the past, they’ve now gone so far left, the Squad promotes the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement.
“They go, ‘Let’s give all that money away from Israel, give it to Hamas.’ That’s what they would say. That’s what they want,” Lovitz said. “What’s that — Ilhan Omar? She wants to (not) give money to Israel for military aid. They’re our ally! They’re a democracy! You’re against giving money to a democratic ally, correct? You’re against that. But we’re giving money to Ukraine.”
Lovitz also singled out New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, calling her “moronic” for her position of not having children due to climate change.
“You know, what AOC said?” Lovitz began.
“I don’t care what party she’s in. I think she’s cute. But she’s an idiot,” he added. “She goes, ‘A lot of people in my generation because of climate change are asking themselves, you know, should they have children? So you’re telling all the people of your generation don’t have kids. Then in 50 years, there’s nobody left on the Earth, moron!”
