According to the Hollywood Reporter, she spoke candidly about the situation on the “Back Room with Andy Ostroy” podcast last week.
She noted that during the George Floyd protests, she supported the movement on Instagram and “ran to support my Black brothers and sisters.”
She also noted how she has stood up for LGBTQ rights and said, “I am the first person to jump up when something is wrong.”
“I think most Jews are,” she went on.
“Because we have been persecuted from the beginning of time, not just World War II, but literally from the beginning of time when we first lived in Israel way before anybody else,” she added.
Margulies then pointed out, “It’s those kids [who use pronouns] who are spewing this anti-Semitic hate that have no idea if they stepped foot in an Islamic country.”
“It’s those people that will be the first people beheaded and their heads played [like] a soccer ball,” she asserted.
“Terrorists who don’t want women to have their rights, don’t want LGBTQ people…this is who you’re supporting?” Margulies questioned.
She also described the double standards being displayed by Hollywood.
She noted how the WGA supported George Floyd protesters but, “When it was the Jews. By the way, all of our great material on television is pretty much from the Jews. Like the fact they stayed silent until they feel were pressured.”
In addition, Margulies described how the Jewish people supported the Black community during the civil rights movement.
“And now the Black community isn’t embracing us and saying we stand with you the way you stood with us?” she asked.
“Where’s the history lesson in that? Who’s teaching these kids?” she added.
“The fact that the entire Black community isn’t standing with us, to me, says they don’t know, or they’ve been brainwashed to hate Jews,” she concluded.
