New Report Exposes Blatant Anti-Semitism From Donald Trump, His Administration

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

I’ve made no secret about my feelings that you can’t be both a Christian and a supporter of Donald Trump. In my mind, it’s impossible for anyone to say that they follow real Christian values while supporting someone as vile and awful as Trump.



Anther issue I’ve found rather absurd is the way Trump portrays himself as this “friend to Israel and the Jewish people” while his campaign was largely predicated on pandering to racism, bigotry and hate to such an extent that he inspired neo-Nazis to become more politically vocal and active than we’ve ever seen in this country. That support only grew when he hired alt-right/white nationalist hero Steve Bannon as his campaign’s chief executive — a man who’s now the chief strategist at the White House.

It’s true that a person can’t help who supports them, but a person can decide who they surround themselves with. So, when Trump decided to make Bannon his “top guy,” someone who’s undoubtedly a hero to white supremacy and neo-Nazis, that was Obama’s successor fully embracing his white nationalist support with open arms.

Then, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Trump gave a speech where he didn’t mention Jews one single time. White House officials actually defended the omission by saying “everyone suffered.”

Well, a rather stunning report by Politico alleges that the White House actually nixed any mention of the Jewish people during Trump’s statement:

The State Department drafted its own statement last month marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day that explicitly included a mention of Jewish victims, according to people familiar with the matter, but President Donald Trump’s White House blocked its release.

First, let’s just go ahead and address the fact that defending not specifically mentioning the Jewish people during a statement about the Holocaust because they wanted to be more “inclusive” because “everyone suffered” is completely ridiculous. You have to be a complete and total moron to actually believe that.

That being said, if true, this is a huge deal. There’s absolutely no rational or logical reason why anyone would reject the idea of mentioning Jews during a statement about the Holocaust, then block the release of a statement that mentioned Jewish suffering.

The only reason why anyone would specifically omit any mention of the Jewish people from a statement about the Holocaust is blatant anti-Semitism. Which is why neo-Nazis praised the omission of Jews from Trump’s statement.

Do mistakes happen? Of course they do. And had Trump apologized for not mentioning Jews, while officials from his administration humbly admitted the omission was a huge mistake, I’d be willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.



But that’s not what happened.

Not only did Trump and officials in his administration defend not mentioning Jews during his statement, but we now have this report saying that they actually nixed a statement from the State Department that did included Jewish suffering, blocking it from being released publicly.

Trump and his supporters will clearly try to spin this, but when you have this many “wow, only someone pandering to white nationalism would do that” supposed “coincidences” like he’s had — that’s a pattern. 

It’s not a bunch of unfortunate “coincidences” that a person who:

  • Agreed to a deal with the Department of Justice after his business had been sued for racial discrimination.
  • Was found guilty of setting up a fake anti-gambling organization that used blatant racism against Native Americans.
  • Retweeted out anti-African American propaganda created by white supremacists.
  • Played dumb about knowing who former Grand Wizard of the KKK and white supremacist David Duke was when he was asked during an interview to condemn his support.
  • Hired a hero to the alt-right/white nationalists in Steve Bannon as one of his top strategists.
  • Didn’t mention Jews once during a statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Also just happens to now have a report saying that they were given a statement that mentioned Jewish suffering, but the same person who did everything I listed above also blocked that statement from being made public.

These are not all coincidences.

It is abundantly clear that Donald Trump built his campaign, and is running his administration, blatantly pandering to white nationalism.

I look forward to his supporters spinning this as more “fake news.” Because, as we’ve all seen plenty of times already, that’s their go-to move whenever they don’t want to admit how awful Donald Trump really is.

    Fascinating Allen.

    The “progressive” wing of the demokrat party (spelling intentional) currently by their ACTIONS not their words seemingly is an:

    * Anti-Christian party;
    * Anti-free speech party;
    * Anti-white party;
    * Anti-accuracy in reporting party;
    * Anti-police party;
    * Anti-capitalism party;
    * Anti-Israel party;

    Gee, with all of these things progressives are against, how are they being received by the electorate?

    1,070 elected positions lost in federal and statewide elections.

    Keep up the good work. Do the same things over, and over and over again.

    Expect different results.

    1,070. Going up?
