WASHINGTON (JTA) — Bernie Sanders launched a campaign video highlighting his Jewish identity and casting President Donald Trump as part of the white nationalist threat.

The four-minute video posted Thursday night on Sanders’ Twitter feed, interpolates excerpts from Sanders’ speech last year to J Street, the liberal Jewish Middle East policy group, with commentary by Joel Rubin, the campaign’s Jewish outreach director. It starts with Sanders’ declaration of pride in being Jewish. “I’m very proud to be Jewish and look forward to becoming the first Jewish president in the history of this country,” Sanders says.

During his 2016 run for the Democratic nomination, Sanders at first played down his Jewish background, although he was the first Jewish major-party candidate to win nominating contests. This cycle, he has emphasized his Jewishness.

The video otherwise focuses almost entirely on the threat that Sanders says President Donald Trump poses to Jews and other minorities.

“Jewish values teach us that community matters, that tolerance matters, that engaging the other matters,” Rubin says, and notes his roots in Pittsburgh where in 2018 a gunman killed 11 worshipers at The Tree of Life synagogue complex, “some of whom were friends of my parents.”

“We live in a perilous time where not only are white nationalists attacking our synagogues and raising hate speech on the internet, we have a white nationalist right now sitting in the White House,” Rubin says, referring to Trump’s equivocation in condemning neo-Nazis after a deadly march in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

“We need to have someone in office who gets it, gets it in his kishkes, understands what it really means to ensure that we are healing our world,” Rubin says.

Religious Jews are fine, but Jews such as Sanders and Soros whose real religion is socialism do tremendous damage.

Sanders and AOC say that the rich got that way by stealing from others. Recently, 5 Jews [made] Forbes’ list of top 10 wealthiest Americans. So if the rich are just thieves, Jews are disproportionately thieves.

The truth is that accumulating wealth honestly in a market economy is a good thing, signifying that one has produced more than one has consumed.

This is the height of hypocrisy. Hasn’t Sanders said that he would divert funds now going to Israel to Hamas?

I used to have literally DOZENS of Jewish friends, but don’t have any now.

The last that I saw of them was that they were getting into boxcars for Canada, but they never wrote back. Strange. I suspect this is Trump’s much-feared round-up of the Jews that we’ve all been told would happen.

(LOL...it gets harder to make doomsday claims when the guy has been in power for 3 years already!)

Perhaps its naivety but devoutly wish that Sanders and the rest would keep overt references to religion out of the political process.

Country music icon and comical social critic once said that he supported Bernie Sanders for president in 2016 because he and his wife would be the first Jewish couple ever to move into a house that was just vacated by a black family. LMAO.

The Jews and Israel have not had a better ally than Trump as President since, at least, Ronald Reagan.

The people’s minds are so warped... Up is Down, Wrong is Right. Man is Woman. Good is Bad. Normal is Crazy - Crazy is celebrated.

To the Jews living in Israel (those with skin in the game) our President is well loved/liked. To most Americans that call themselves Jews not so much.
I saw surveys after the President moved the embassy to Jerusalem and that didn’t move the needle among American Jews. A survey after he declared the Golan Heights to be Israeli Land, actually caused a drop in support for the president among American Jews.
These people are dems first and foremost. Everything else is secondary. A very distant second.

If your ancestors were Jewish but you don't believe in God, then you're not a Jew. You're just another white guy who is an atheist.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter !” — Isaiah 5:20

Sanders, Soros, all these leftist totalitarians serve the dark one. Their values are not our values, their goals are not our goals.

Bernie’s campaign has a “Jewish outreach director.”

President Trump has a history of pro-Israel actions and policy behind him.

Actions speak louder than words, Bernie.

Poor Bernie, what pathetic positions he's resorting to...

He's talking about Israel's best friend, who moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, whose beloved daughter is a Jewish convert, whose trusted son-in-law is a Jew, and whose beloved grandchildren are Jews.

The more Trump illuminates the world with the Light of Truth, the more his critics--and those who oppose the truth--descend into absurdity!
