Antisemite of the Year: Three Powerful Women Contend for 2021 Infamy

A trio of famous women are finalists for 2021 Antisemite of the Year dishonors.

British pop star Dua Lipa, US Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Ben & Jerry’s executive Anuradha Mittal are being considered for the dubious award, said competition organizer StopAntisemitism.org.

“From spreading conspiracy theories to demonizing the Jewish state, each of these individuals has repeatedly and significantly propagated hatred,” said Stop Antisemitism founder Liora Rez, adding the group was “flooded” by more than 5,000 votes during the first leg of its contest.

Lipa, who has denied past allegations of anti-Semitism, has voiced support for Palestinian causes and once shared a post by director Vin Arfuso claiming Israel Defense Forces “thoroughly enjoy beating and shooting children.”

The singer “has been using her fame to vilify the Jewish nation and its people and to promote antisemitism to her fans,” including her 76 million Instagram followers, the group claims.

Greene (R-Georgia) made the list for being stripped of several House committee assignments in February, “after her many anti-Semitic conspiracy theories came to light,” the group said.

Mittal, who has chaired Ben & Jerry’s board of directors since 2008, has been accused of doling out tens of thousands in cash from the controversial ice cream company’s foundation to fund her own pro-Palestinian non-profit, as The Post reported earlier this year.

Ben & Jerry’s announced a controversial boycott of Israeli settlements in July.

StopAntisemitism.org will crown one of the women Antisemite of the Year on Dec. 27, after online voting is complete.

The previous winners were Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) in 2019 and CUNY Law School student Nerdeen Kiswani in 2020.
