On Friday alone, Barr tweeted and re-tweeted several posts about Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin, whom Barr labeled “a filthy nazi whore.” A Muslim American, Abedin is married to former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner, is Jewish.


Barr also tweeted that Clinton “is surrounded by jew haters who make fun of the holocaust & jewish suffering…”


On Wednesday, Barr tweeted: “Hillary will be the absolute death of Israel-she will sell #nukes to Hamas next if price is right [sic]. She listens to Sid Paul and Max Blumenthal,” she wrote, referring to former Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal, and his two sons Max, an avowed anti-Zionist, and Paul, a journalist.


Barr, who starred in the long-running sitcom “Roseanne,” has been outspoken in her support for Israel in recent years. She visited the Jewish state in May, where she was a keynote speaker at a Jerusalem conference on the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

In 2012, Barr sought the presidential nomination of the Green Party, but lost to Jill Stein, the party’s current presidential candidate.
