Dems are trying to rise above what they feel Trump represents, yet you have two people now (AOC and Iman) who have made statements on record that are just as bad as Trump.

I know about their supposed anti-Semitic remarks, but while I think they need to be careful in the future about getting to close to racist tropes, I don't think the remarks themselves were racist. The trope is that Jews secretly control the worlds governments and/or the control the world's banks (and have lots of money).
Now, the fact is that Jews DO lobby Congress in favor of Israel and the pro-Israel groups have lots of political power in the US. The most blatant example is Sheldon Adelson who is well known to donate heavily to Republican causes in return for support for pro-Israel causes...
"Sheldon Adelson, 85, a confidant of US President Donald Trump who conditioned massive contributions to his campaign on his relocating the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, [is undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma]."
So, are you saying that we are not allowed to discuss the effects that large of money (by at least one person, and I am sure he is not the only pro-Israel person donating money in the US) tied to pro-Israel causes have on our political system and decision making process? Because it is supposedly "racist" to do so? You sound a lot like one of those supposed Social Justice Warriors that Republicans always claim exist.
But, I do think they need to be more careful about how their words will be interpreted, and who statements like that will be seen as supporting. You really don't want the White Supremacists and American Nazis to believe your statements support their racist positions.
