WASHINGTON: In the wake of the recent Anti-Semitism attack on the Pittsburgh Tree of Life Synagogue, we, as a nation, are hurt. This hurt is multifaceted in that it is just one of many attacks in recent years on places of worship. But also the vile nature and antipathy towards the Jewish people in America and abroad. While these events grip our nation, it is the duty of all with a voice in the public sphere, and even those without one to condemn it unequivocally, and place sole blame on the perpetrator.
Do liberal attacks on Israel and the President for his support of Israel, add to a national disdain for the Jewish people.
For years this norm had been followed. The best example being after 9/11. The country, both Democrats and Republicans united for one purpose, healing America. Present day, 2018, vile attacks continue throughout our country like in previous years, but what is different is how people with a voice, politicians, media, academia, and so many others react to these awful happenings.
The media has one job and one job only. That is to report the facts. Reporting facts, not opinion, has been the norm for the media since their inception. Unfortunately, this norm has gone swirling down the drain as opinion media takes over.
This most recent attack on the Jewish people is a perfect example of the press failing in their duty to the American people.
“Trump’s America is not a safe place for Jews,” says Dana Milbank in the Washington Post.
“The President is obviously a racist, he obviously condones anti-Semitism,” says John Heilemann on MSNBC. This rhetoric is not only false, but it is dangerous.
President Trump – a friend to Israel and Jews in America
Before moving on to the media and the lefts lies in hopes for political gains, it is important to understand how much President Trump has done for the Jewish people. The first and most glaring example is moving the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem. For years upon years, Presidential candidates had promised to move the embassy, yet nothing ever happened.
“There are those who wish to destroy the Jewish people, we will instead destroy them.” – President Donald J. Trump
That is not until President Trump came into the White House.
Vice President Mike Pence gave the keynote address at the Israeli embassy’s DC gathering. In it, he praised Trump for bringing the US and Israel “closer together in a year than any president in the past 70 years” and for being “the greatest defender the Jewish state has ever had sitting in the Oval Office.”
His unequivocal backing and support of the Jewish people and the only Jewish state in the world cannot and should not go unnoticed.
Next, his daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Jared and the President’s grandchildren are all Jewish. It would be quite hard for the President to be Anti-Semitic with much of his immediate family being Jewish.
Not only has he been amazing for the state of Israel, but he deported a Nazi living in New York back to his home country, something that Barack Obama could have done but chose not to. Not because the ailing Nazi was a threat, but that he did not deserve to live one more day in America.
Why is President Trump called an Anti-Semite, when he is obviously not
So, with all of this, plus a whole lot more good he has done for the Jewish people, why is he being called an Anti-Semite. Simply put, its politics at its worst, or some would say at its best. With the midterms only a week away, the Democrats and their complicit media feel their so-called “blue wave” slipping away and slipping away fast. When one is desperate as the Democrats and liberal press now are, you resort to any means necessary.
Which is precisely where we are now.
Democrats and the Main Stream Media know quite well the President is not racist or Anti-Semitic, but their followers don’t. They listen, believe and parrot the views of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Elizabeth Warren. Democrat voters believe whatever garbage they are being fed by CNN, The Washington Post, and the New York Times.
It happens to be today’s media garbage that Trump is an anti-Semite. (A Third Of Americans Say Trump Is Anti-Semitic)
Democrats Bedfellows: Anti Semites Louis Farrakhan and Linda Sarsour
There is another factor at play here as well. The Democrat party has embraced what they are accusing President Trump of. They have embraced Anti-Semites such as Louis Farrakhan and Linda Sarsour. Pictures of Louis Farrakhan with several Democratic politicians, including our former President Barack Obama, exist.
Linda Sarsour has been a prominent voice on the left. She is the leader of the Democrat’s feminist movement. Sarsour is embraced by Democrats such as Kirsten Gillibrand and Elizabeth Warren. Sarsour campaigns to bring anti-Semetic Sharia law to the US.
Not only have many on the left embraced Anti-Semites they also espouse anti-Israel and Pro-Palestinian rhetoric as well.
The Left’s hateful response to moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem
When President Trump announced his decision to relocate the US Embassy to Jerusalem, you would think with their now warm embrace of Jewish people they were all in on this idea.
Quite the opposite occurred. Many on the left opposed this move wholeheartedly, with one Democratic legislator saying,
“As with everything else Donald Trump does, most Democrats saw this as an extremely provocative and reckless intervention in Middle East politics.” (After no-shows in Jerusalem, Democrats also absent from Israeli Embassy DC party )
The left cannot have it both ways, blame Donald Trump for helping Jews and then blame Donald Trump, calling him an Anti-Semite when an Anti-Semitic, Trump hating lunatic murders eleven Jews. In the wake of these attacks rhetoric from everyone should be concerned with one thing and one thing only, healing.
In a forceful message, President Trump says,
“There are those who wish to destroy the Jewish people, we will instead destroy them.”
I guess the left is about to be destroyed.Tree of LIfe , Anti-Semitism, Linda Sarsour, Louis Farrakhan, President Trump, Moshe Maryles
