Over the weekend, an anti-Semitic (not to mention very anti-Trump, which we’ll get to later) nut-job shot up the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, reportedly shouting a phrase long-used by anti-Semites: “all Jews must die.”
The killer (who will not be named as to avoid inadvertently giving him any sort of fame or "glory") killed 11 people in the massacre.
But with this having been a mass shooting, the Left jumped at the chance to blame Trump for this. However, there exists one massive problem that the Left simply could not hope to overcome.
Actually, there are a couple of problems, but one of them ties into the other.
First, and perhaps least important of the two: the shooter was anti-Trump. He had even tweeted: “There is no #MAGA, as long as there is a kike infestation.” You can tell the second problem is quite important and a bit overwhelming for the Left if THIS problem is considered the less important one of the two.
The guy was anti-Trump largely because of the second problem the Left faces in their rhetoric and narrative to blame Trump: Trump has been the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel President in American history.
Let’s begin with Trump’s statement following the shooting regarding anti-Semitism: “Anti-Semitism and the widespread persecution of Jews represents one of the ugliest and darkest features in human history. Anti-Semitism must be condemned and confronted everywhere and anywhere it appears.”
This is a strong statement totally disavowing any sort of anti-Semitism in America and pushing hard against it. But that’s not all. Recently, he even said that whomever seeks the destruction of the Jews, we (America) would seek THOSE PEOPLE’S destruction.
Plus, let’s not forget that Trump did what other Presidents before him only promised to do: he moved the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.
Let’s not forget that Trump has, throughout the 2016 campaign and beyond, been a great friend of Jewish people and a great friend for Israel.
Let’s not forget that Trump cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority, which is hell-bent in taking over Jerusalem and exterminating the Jews via acts of terrorism.
Let’s not forget that Trump dismantled and completely tore apart the Iran nuclear deal, which is not only an action that greatly benefits the U.S., but also ensures Israel’s most notorious enemy does not get more and more money from America to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.
Let’s not forget that Trump deported a Nazi in hiding when both Bush and Obama could have, but failed or did not care to do.
Trump has been very friendly towards Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and has overall been a great friend of Israel.
To label Donald Trump as an anti-Semite because of the actions by an anti-Semitic, anti-Trump nut-job is asinine and wrong.
That is particularly the case when the people who label Trump as an anti-Semite are some of the very same people who defend or ignore Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic ramblings, and who have long stressed that Israel be contained and that it bow to its Palestinian enemies.
Barack Obama, in the aftermath of the terrorist attack, tweeted: “We grieve for the Americans murdered in Pittsburgh. All of us have to fight the rise of anti-Semitism and hateful rhetoric against those who look, love, or pray differently. And we have to stop making it so easy for those who want to harm the innocent to get their hands on a gun.”
Ignoring the obvious and pathetic call for stricter gun control laws (which never help anyone and only increase the likelihood of these things happening), this is the same guy who has been photographed smiling next to Louis Farrakhan, who recently said he was not anti-Semite, but “anti-termite”, basically dehumanizing Jews and labeling as nothing more than a pest to be rid of.
This is the same guy who worked towards making a deal with Iran to give them billions of dollars “to build roads and bridges”, which would be the most laughable pile of b.s. if that pile of b.s. hadn’t been so dangerous and hadn’t likely led Iran to accelerate their nuclear program.
In stark contrast with Donald Trump, Obama never was much of a friend to Israel. Quite the opposite could even be argued.
With what Donald Trump has done for Jewish people and for Israel, the Left cannot realistically and successfully label him as an anti-Semite.
While the desire to build a wall in the southern border could be misconstrued as being racist (it isn’t, even a little), they cannot misconstrue anything Trump says and/or does as being anti-Semitic.
What he has done as POTUS is greatly beneficial to Israel and the Jewish people, and that is not bound to end. The only Jewish people who are against Trump right now are simply Leftist partisan hacks who never liked him in the first place and barely even appear to be faithful Jews, considering one of them appeared to not have even liked Trump moving the embassy to Israel. (*ahem* Julia Ioffe saying she hopes the embassy move was “worth it” when attacking Jews who voted for Trump *ahem*).
And this is all without even focusing on the fact that the reason the shooter shot up the synagogue was because he was ticked off at Trump for being too Jew-friendly. So the media can’t even characterize the guy as having been right-winger or a Trump supporter because he was outspokenly anti-Trump due to the POTUS being so pro-Israel and pro-Jew.
At the end of the day, what the Left wants from this is not at all what is going to happen. This, alongside the mail bombings of the previous week, is supposed to characterize Trump as being culpable for the dangerous political climate we live in. This shooting, not having been political but rather religious, can’t do that.
Not to mention that since Trump is very pro-Israel, he cannot realistically be characterized as anti-Semitic. Sure, the Left could try and still blame him (they will certainly do that), but when the rhetoric that Trump is anti-Semitic falls flat on its face because of its absurdity and false nature, they will try to focus a little more on the gun and call for more gun control.
I, for one, hope they will continue to try and characterize Trump as anti-Semitic. It makes my job easier to flat out deny their claims and make counter-arguments with undeniable-on-all-sides facts.
Let’s see if the Left takes the bait on this one and continues with this asinine rhetoric.
“’I ask, then, has God rejected His people? By no means! For I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin.'”
