Pardon my ignorance, but what is antisemitic about the alien/lizard people thing? I always thought it was a dumb joke people made, but I didn’t realize it has such a hurtful origin!
David Icke and his conspiracy theories about the banks, the media and the government being run by “Zionists” who are actually alien lizard people, which have been repeated as an antisemitic dogwhistle for decades, even though Icke says “Zionists” isn’t meant to indicate Jews necessarily. (Related research topics include the propaganda text “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”.)
This is why it’s particularly worrisome to see that type of joke made about politicians, even clearly shitty ones. Like, even jokes about 45 and his wife being lizard-people has roots in that whole thing.
