Posted on 04/29/2019 8:05:49 AM PDT by Kaslin
The left and its comrades in the mainstream media have taken the Jewish vote for granted for years. Jews are one of the most reliable constituencies of the Democratic Party. A CNN poll last fall found that nearly 80 percent of Jews voted Democratic in the midterm elections. Only 17 percent voted Republican. Yet anti-Semitism on the left in the U.S. has increased recently, including in the media.
The Democrats treat people according to group identities instead of as individuals. So when one of their group constituencies inevitably clashes with another group constituency, the Democrats have to pick a side. When it’s radical Islam v. Jews, it’s an easy call. Since radical Islam is less compatible with U.S. values than Judaism, the Democrats side with the radicals. The Democrats want to tear down the U.S. and replace it with something drastically different. They especially want to destroy our Judeo-Christian heritage.
It’s become so bad that Sean Spicier, the parody Twitter account of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, tweeted, “Luckily in this day and age it’s virtually impossible for anti-Semites to stay anonymous, almost all of them have a (D) next to their name.”
The current wave of anti-semitism gained momentum with the election of Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. to Congress. Both are radical Islamists and the first two female Islamic members ever elected to Congress. In February, Omar retweeted a post discussing how she and Tlaib were facing punishment from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for criticizing Israel. She added, “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby.” Benjamins refers to $100 bills, which feature Benjamin Franklin. It was a reference to Jews and money. The phrase comes from a song with the same name by Puff Daddy, who sang about money and used the word Hebrews in one version of the song. Only after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ordered Omar to apologize, did she retract her tweet.
Tlaib sparked outrage when she tweeted in January that people supporting a bill protecting states which penalize Israel boycotters “forgot what country they represent.” Critics immediately pointed out that the “dual loyalty” accusation is a known anti-Semitic line. But she did not delete her tweet.
Last Thursday, The New York Times published a hateful cartoon of President Trump and Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu. In it, Trump is portrayed as blind, wearing a yarmulke and holding a leash attached to Netanyahu, who is depicted as a dog with a Star of David for a collar. The newspaper retracted the cartoon and apologized only after being called out.
Some believe the anti-Semitic rhetoric of Omar and Tlaib is inciting violence against Jews. Highland Park, Illinois, Rabbi Evan Moffic warned on a Fox & Friends panel, “When Ilhan Omar said 'It's all about the Benjamins, baby,' and she said Israel has 'hypnotized the world,' she's drawing on these stereotypes that have murdered millions of people in the Holocaust, which just happened 75 years ago … it's exactly because of that rhetoric."
Hate crimes against Jews have been increasing in the U.S. Police reported a significant increase of them in New York City earlier this year in comparison to last year.
On Saturday, a gunman opened fire on a synagogue near San Diego on the last day of Passover, killing a woman and injuring three others. In his Manifesto, he criticized Trump for being a zionist, Jew-loving and anti-white.
On October 27 of last year, a gunman attacked a synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing 11 and injuring seven. He stated on a social media website that he opposed Trump, who he claimed was surrounded by Jews. He used an expletive to describe Jews and said they were an “infestation” at the White House.
Yet predictably, the left accused Trump and the right of anti-Semitism. After the San Diego area synagogue shooting, CNN’s Brian Stelter blamed “right-wing message boards.” Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik claimed Trump had opened “the Gates of Hell.” Former Obama administration official Joel Martin Rubin said Trump encouraged anti-Semitism. And a CNN panel questioned whether Trump’s condolences after the shooting were sincere.
This is bizarre since both synagogue shooters clearly stated they detested Trump and his favorable relationship with Jews. The reality is, the left has a problem with pointing a finger at the right over the very things it’s doing itself. The left may claim it’s not anti-Semitic, but the incidents linking the left to anti-Semitism are increasing. Brandon Straka, the leader of the #WalkAway movement fleeing the Democrats, is now starting a #WalkAway plan for Jews. Since the influence of the radical Islamists appears to be increasing in the U.S. thanks to the Democrats, it is very likely he will have some success.
Throw the Jew haters out of our Congress. They are HUGE troublemakers.
“Whoa, you just wait..! ALL the blacks are gonna vote TRUMP..!”
No, they didn’t. And they won’t. And neither will Jews.
AOC will be cackling with glee, twisting the gas pipes open wide and they will use their dying breath to grope for their ballots to vote for her.
They’re going to stay exaaaaactly the same.
Socialism, antisemitism and eugenics go hand in hand.... Always have and always will and it’s all part of their social engineering agenda... Society needs to be engineered and formed to extricate the undesirables and eliminate those who do not conform to their standards, and eliminate the ‘bad’ genes who drag down society.
Tommy Douglas in Canada, Margaret Sanger in the US and Hitler in Germany... Peas in a pod.
I have been telling my Jewish friends for years that the left is going to eat them if they gain power. A few are waking up but most still shake their heads at me.
The only real friends Israel has are committed Christians, i.e. those that actually read their bibles. Highly religionized parts of the church, such as much of the Eastern Orthodox, had better get their heads on straight. We are mere wild branches: Romans 11:17
let me give you a hint
look at Israel , look at its neighbours, compare the populations
all of the immediate neighbours are here as well as the distant ones.
That’s what KSM said under “enhanced interrogation”.
He said technically we don’t need terror, over time we’ll immigrate and use your welfare system to multiply, build up power over time until we finally institute sharia in America.
And while conservative Jews are great, 80% of Jews feel are playing leading roles, lobbying, fund-raising and cajoling in order to get as many modernity-haters into America as possible, in addition to Mexicans and central Americans.
Their view is that an America in chaos will keep honky attention off Jews:
The truth is the exact opposite.
look at what Carlos the Jackal said....vocalizing common thought of his peers years ago. He recognized that marxism by itself was not enough to bring down the west, nor was islam.... but if they aligned theirselves in a coalition that it could be done.
Thusly we see creatures like BHO and HRC.
Then we see them using America’s might to reshape the planet against western man.
All this! and more from 1600 Pennsylvania
It’s not an explosion. It’s always been there and is now coming out.
Their capital is the Globalist Tel Aviv not the spiritual Jerusalem.
Liberal Jews in the US HATE their Conservative brethren.
Don't lump folks all together. Just like the bogus grouping of "Hispanic", "Black" or "Women" voters, there's lots of diversity in every other group.
אני עומד עם ישראל
Trump should be proud and flattered to be compared with Winston Churchill... A man who knew socialism when he saw it and tried to root it out as best he could.
Since the time of Herod!
You’ll have to do something about Jews voting for the Jew haters, first.
Are you sure?
“..Youll have to do something about Jews voting for the Jew haters, first....”
Yep. These people are getting what they voted for. In this case, many foreigners that should go back where they came from. We don’t need America haters here.
It is not an explosion. It is merely the rending of the veil.
