This afternoon the right wing site Daily Caller, which was founded by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, went full anti-Semitic with a video mocking New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush, who is Jewish. Watch below as the Daily Caller loops Thrush’s pronunciation of “chutzpah” over and over as Hava Nagila plays in the background. Blue check Twitter is aghast.
UPDATE: The Daily Caller deleted the video within minutes, but somebody was quick enough to make a copy.

This Daily Caller ad has NYT’s Glenn Thrush repeat “Chutzpah” on loop while Hava Nagila plays. It ends by saying the Daily Caller takes you “behind the scenes”.
It’s not subtle. It’s openly antisemitic. https://t.co/0bGPRx3XU5
