Will the Real Anti-Semites Stand Up

So, a new Muslim convert walked into a Hanukkah celebration,  a machete in hand, and started slashing and stabbing. Anti-Semitism, anyone. Immediately, the knee- jerk liberal intelligentsia popped up in the media to explain that, the problem really was white supremacy and Donald Trump.

How stupid are they? How stupid are their followers?

Obviously, it was not the first anti-Semitic attack in New York State. It will not be the last. The anti-Semitic left has taken over the Democratic Party and has been spewing hatred non-stop for three years against America’s first Jewish president. After all, Donald Trump has instituted numerous pro-Israeli policies. Half his family is Jewish. Hating Trump is one acceptable way to be anti-Semitic. Besides, orthodox Jews are especially likely to be Trump supporters.

As noted on this blog, the presumably Jewish Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin once called for the incineration of all Republicans. Did she know that the other word for incineration is Holocaust? Does she now hate Republicans because they have become far more supportive of Jews and of Israel? Why is she still writing a column for a major national newspaper?

As for the source of today’s anti-Semitism, we need look no further than the Democratic Party, and especially the Obama administration. What else would you expect from Jeremiah Wright’s protege?

Jeff Dunetz at The Lid blog lays out the case:

During a phone call with Obama and other Jewish leaders about the Iran deal, William Daroff Senior Vice President for Public Policy & Director of the Washington office of The Jewish Federations of North America tweeted about what the president was saying “Jews are leading effort to kill #Irandeal. ‘Same people opposing the deal led us into Iraq war,’” and followed with “Canard: Jews got us into Iraq War.”

Of course, at a time when Democrats are screeching that President Trump should denounce anti-Semitism with stronger language they neglect to mention that their hero, Barack Obama, refused to denounce Islamic radicalism during his presidency. Was that the reason for the many terrorist attacks during his administration, from the Fort Hood massacre, the Boston marathon bombing, the San Bernardino shooting and the Orlando nightclub murders?

At the least, we should emphasize that today’s anti-Semitism has been fomented by Muslims. By the ones that Barack Obama refused to denounce. And by the British Labour Party. The more Muslim migrants enter the west the more they become an actual or potential voting block. Surely, they outvote Jews by a large percentage. Craven politicians are happy to adopt their cause, that being anti-Semitism. Anything for a vote.

Let’s not forget Obama’s embrace of that notable anti-Semite, Rev.Al Sharpton.

Obama refused to recognize the Antisemitism of others. During his presidency, Obama allied himself with Al Sharpton who was a leader of the anti-Semitic pogrom in Crown Heights and incited the anti-Semitic firebombing of Freddy’s Fashion Mart in Harlem. He sent his closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, to keynote an anti-Semitic ISNA conference whose discussions included: how key Obama aides are “Israeli,” proving Jews “have control of the world,” or how the Holocaust is the punishment of Jews for being “serially disobedient to Allah.”

Al Sharpton visited the Obama White House dozens of times. He has been embraced and lionized by Democratic politicians:

Al Sharpton is a card-carrying anti-Semite who led two anti-Semitic pogroms in NYC. He was a regular visitor at the Obama White House, and Democrats fawned over Sharpton during his 65th birthday gala last year. It was attended by Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, and Jerold Nadler. Despite his hatred of Jews, most of the 2020 Democratic Candidates visited Sharpton to kiss his ring,  The visits to kiss the Sharpton ring of hate does not mean those candidates are anti-Semitic, it just means they condone Antisemitism.

When Islamist terrorists attacked a Kosher supermarket in Paris, Obama refused to say that it had anything to do with anti-Semitism. He proceeded to boycott the French march against Islamist terrorism. World leaders showed up to express their support for the victims of terrorism. Obama sent his ambassador.

When radical Islamists attacked the Kosher supermarket Hyper-Cacher (French for Super Kosher) in Paris on a Friday afternoon. The attack happened just before the Jewish Sabbath when they knew it would be crowded with Jews. Obama first insisted it wasn’t an anti-Semitic act. And when the world leaders came together to march in Paris as a protest against the Charlie Hebdo shooting and the anti-Semitic Hyper-Cacher attack Obama was conspicuous in his absence.

Other Democratic politicians joined the chorus:

Before Louis Farrakhan called Jews termites, Hank Johnson (D-GA) used that phrase. At an event at the 2016 Democratic Convention, Johnson, who once worried that too many people on the island of Guam might tip it over, called Jewish people who live in disputed territories to “termites” that destroy homes. Johnson said it during an event sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an anti-Israel organization that galvanizes supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS.  After his comment caused an uproar, Johnson gave a half-hearted apology. He was sorry about offending but wasn’t sorry for saying it or even or recognized that it was anti-Semitic.

"How stupid are they? How stupid are their followers?"

To answer those questions, quoting Glenn Reynolds, you're gonna need a bigger blog.

But a fairly good first cut is contained in today's companion post about the "failure to thrive" of 2020's Eek!oloon Apocalypse.

This is one "really, really BIG" reason for me to distrust Dems, and the NYT and WaPoo.
