A former Democrat at Georgia House appeared to claim that “Zionists” were behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Cynthia McKinney, who spent 12 years in the 1990s and mid-2000s representing various districts in Georgia, posted a meme on Twitter Monday describing the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center as a puzzle with the ” last piece of the puzzle “. have the word “Zionists” on it. When adding this piece to the puzzle, the image reads: “The Zionists did it. “
The former congressman, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment, has a habit of enacting anti-semite and anti-Israel rhetoric, including the promotion of charge that Israel was behind 9/11.
“McKinney has always used anti-Israel rhetoric, including accusing the pro-Israel lobby of sabotaging his political career and alleging that Israel has committed genocide, apartheid and war crimes,” he said. added. Anti-Defamation League said. “She has repeatedly condemned US support for Israel.”
After the 2001 terrorist attacks, McKinney gained national attention for claiming that then President George W. Bush might have been aware of the planned strikes, although she conceded she was “not aware of any evidence showing that President Bush or members of his administration personally profited from the 9/11 attacks”, although “a full investigation could reveal that this is the case.”
Days before she lost her next primary in 2002 to Denise Majette, her father, Billy McKinney, an Atlanta state representative, said on tv of the race of his daughter: “It is not nothing. The Jews bought everyone. The Jews. THE JEWS.”
She was then re-elected to Congress after this break in term. McKinney was then appointed be the Green Party presidential candidate in 2008.
