Skip to comments.The obscene effort to shame ‘Trump’s Jews’

Allow me a moment of pride: The hot new criticism of my fellow Jews is that we dont complain enough.
Really. A host of pundits, concerned about President Trumps baffling unwillingness to single out neo-Nazis for criticism, are turning to the American Jewish community and pleading: Would it kill you to maybe kvetch a bit?
The idea we havent protested is bonkers, but more important, the lefts campaign to get all Jews to publicly denounce Trump has taken a profoundly dangerous and ugly turn. And it needs to stop.
On Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reported that a coalition of left-leaning Jewish organizations have decided to lead by example. The groups had organized a conference call with President Barack Obama each year just before the High Holy Days, but this year, ostensibly because of Trumps atrocious response to the violence in Charlottesville, their leaders chose to boycott the call.
To be clear, the call was generally a heavily politicized event at which the liberal groups and the liberal president pushed liberal policies under the guise of faith. Indeed, one of the groups is the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, which (the inside joke goes) has long been split between its political wing and its political wing.
But as rabbis and community leaders, they are clearing a path for others to follow. And theyre far from lone voices.
Late last week, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank took aim at a trio of Jews serving Trump: the presidents top economic adviser, treasury secretary and son-in-law. What Gary Cohn, Steven Mnuchin and Jared Kushner did last week or, rather, what they didnt do is a shanda, he wrote, using the Yiddish word for shame. Specifically, they didnt publicly trash their boss.

So of course Cohn took the bait and publicly trashed his boss. What a putz - fire his sorry ass
What's "baffling" is the unwillingness of the pundits to criticize all violent actors.
OK, so it's not really baffling... the reason they don't want to do it is because they are "victory by any means" communist sympathizers who don't want to be held accountable for their own moral failings.
He singled out neo-Nazis, condemning them individually and jointly with all the other bigots present in Charlottsville. Stop trying to use your Jewishness as a partisan political weapon, and stop trying to get me and other Jews with a sense of decency to go along with this shoddy ploy.
Dana Millbank (love his last name, look up its’ meaning in old English), is the Wash. Post’s Sen. Joe McCarthy on stereoids and hemorrhoids. At least McCarthy got his reds right.
Millbank likes to deny that there were any reds around, esp. in the Obama regime and in his well documented Communist Party USA contacts history (plus Bill Ayers, only a “neighbor”).
And he sounds a little like an anti-Semite too, but selectively (i.e. Jewish conservatives).
As for Rep. Schatz (D-Ha), he’s a total asshole. Should have changed his name to “Cat Shat”. More fitting.
It’s the exact same situation as with “moderate muslims” who tsk tsk about terrorism when asked but privately agree completely with those screaming allahu akbar while chopping off heads or blowing themselves up. The democrats and the media are 100% on board with what Antifa want to accomplish.
I’m Jewish, and I support Trump.
Don’t you love how there’s always a Jew who “speaks for the Jews,”
and he’s invariably a total dick?
