American Jewish actress Roseanne Barr lashed out Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a series of tweets this week, claiming her presidency would mean the “death of Israel.”
“Hillary will be the absolute death of Israel-she will sell #nukes to Hamas next if price is right [sic],” Barr tweeted Wednesday. “She listens to Sid Paul and Max Blumenthal,” she wrote, a reference to former Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal, and his two sons Max, an avowed anti-Zionist, and Paul.
Barr continued tweeting comments in the same vein for the rest of the week.
On Friday, she wrote “hillary clinton is surrounded by jew haters who make fun of the holocaust & jewish suffering yet her mkultra supporters call Trump a bigot! [sic]”
She reserved unusual hatred for Huma Abedin, Clinton’s most senior staffer, who said to have a good chance of becoming the White House chief of staff, should the Democrats win the election.
Abedin is a Nazi, Barr tweeted Friday, claiming that this was something endeared her to Clinton. “Huma is a Nazi & Hillary loves nazis [sic],” she wrote.
In another tweet Barr described Abedin as a “filthy Nazi whore.”
On Tuesday night, the 63-year-old actress slammed the Democratic presidential candidate’s foreign policy, going as far as to say that Clinton would sell nuclear weapons to Hamas if the price is “right,” according to a report on the conservative US website the Daily Caller.
According to the Daily Caller, Barr has made it clear she doesn’t plan to vote for Trump or Clinton and will be voting for herself in November. Her Twitter image includes the caption: “Roseanne for President.”
The actress visited Israel in May, where she gave an address as a keynote speaker at a Jerusalem conference on the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
She became more politically active after the events of 9/11, first as part of the liberal Green party, but then began moving toward the right, mostly because of the views held by many against Israel.
Since then she has become an outspoken and hawkish Israel advocate on social media, sometimes sparking fights, as in November 2015, when she called a writer for the liberal daily Haaretz a “privileged fat skinhead” over his call for French Jews to stay in France.
