Antisemitic Incidents Hit All-time High in U.S. — Under Joe Biden

Antisemitic Incidents Hit All-time High in U.S. — Under Joe Biden

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reported Tuesday that the number of recoded antisemitic incidents reached an all-time high in 2021, the first year of President Joe Biden’s administration, after he campaigned on stopping the rise of extremism.

According to the left-leaning ADL (original emphasis):

Antisemitic incidents tracked in the 2021 Audit of Antisemitic Incidentsreached an all-time high of 2,717 in the United States last year – an average of more than seven incidents per day and a 34 percent increase year over year, including assaults, harassment and vandalism. This is the highest number on record since ADL began tracking antisemitic incidents in 1979.

Harassment: Of the total, 1,776 incidents were categorized as harassment, defined as cases where one or more Jewish people (or people who were perceived to be Jewish) were harassed verbally (or in writing) with antisemitic conspiracy theories, slurs or stereotypes. Acts of harassment increased 43%, up from 1,242 in 2020.

Vandalism: Another 853 incidents were categorized as vandalism, defined as cases where property was damaged in a manner that incorporated evidence of antisemitic intent or which had an antisemitic impact on Jews. Swastikas, which are generally interpreted by Jews to be symbols of antisemitic hatred, were present in 578 of these incidents. Acts of antisemitic vandalism increased 14% from 751 in 2020.

The ADL also reported a 167% increase in assaults against Jews, from 33 in 2020 to 88 in 2021, though there were no fatalities recorded in these attacks.

During the prior administration, Democrats, the media, and ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt himself often blamed President Donald Trump, or implied he was to blame, for rising antisemitism.

Biden launched his presidential campaign in 2019 by claiming he had been motivated to respond to neo-Nazi riots in 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia, falsely claiming that President Trump had referred to the neo-Nazis as “very fine people.”

Though the hoax has been debunked, both on the debate stage and during Trump’s second impeachment trial, Biden has persisted in using it, portraying himself as a crusader against antisemitism.

A poll released Tuesday by Rasmussen revealed that two-thirds, or 66%, of likely U.S. voters believe the country is more divided now than before the 2020 election.

‘Nazis’ allegedly supporting Republican candidate revealed to be a false-flag stunt by Lincoln Project

‘Nazis’ allegedly supporting Republican candidate revealed to be a false-flag stunt by Lincoln Project

‘Nazis’ allegedly supporting Republican candidate with Tiki-torches revealed to be a false-flag stunt by Lincoln Project

RT-USA News

With the Virginia gubernatorial campaign down to the wire, Democrats pointed and shrieked at “Nazis” allegedly supporting their opponent in Charlottesville. The Lincoln Project then admitted to the false-flag stunt.

The election has gone from a sure thing for Democrat Terry McAuliffe to a possible upset by Republican Glenn Youngkin in recent weeks. On Friday, as Youngkin came to Charlottesville for the final campaign push, reporters were drawn to a group of people posing in front of his bus in pouring rain. All five wore hats, sunglasses, white shirts, khakis and tiki torches – in what seemed to be a reference to the 2017 ‘Unite the Right’ rally that ended in violence.

Local and national media dutifully reported that the group said “what sounded like, ‘We’re all in for Glenn’” as they posed outside the bus. The report was then amplified by McAuliffe’s staffers: Christina Freundlich said “this is who Glenn Youngkin’s supporters are,” while Jen Goodman called it “disgusting and disqualifying.” Both tweets have since been deleted.

When asked about it, Youngkin said, “I think they work for Terry McAuliffe, and I’m sure he sent them,” adding that the Democrat will “do anything to win.”

McAuliffe’s campaign issued a statement denying the claim. “This was not us or anyone affiliated with our campaign,” they said, adding it was “shameful and wrong” to accuse them of this.

Then internet sleuths went to work, alleging that the people in the photo were actually Democrat activists. Following the claims, the suspected activists began locking and purging their social media profiles, one after another. According to one social media user, the fact that the media themselves showed zero interest in identifying the so-called racists was suspicious on its own.

This gross false-flag operation reeks of desperation from the McAuliffe camp who is currently trailing Youngkin by 8 points,”tweeted Alec Sears, a conservative political consultant.

He proceeded to claim that two people in the photos – a man and a woman – looked like staffers with Virginia Democrats and Virginia Young Democrats. Both quickly scrubbed their social media accounts. So did a black Democrat activist, who was accused of being part of the stunt.

The presence of a black man amid the alleged “white supremacists” quickly made ‘Jussie Smollett’ and ‘Clayton Bigsby’ trend on Twitter. The former is the actor awaiting trial for allegedly fabricating a hate crime against himself and blaming Republican supporters. The latter is a ‘black Klansman’ character created by African-American comic Dave Chappelle.

It was at this point that the Lincoln Project – a controversial outfit run by former Republican strategists who have disavowed their party and gone all-out for Democrats – admitted the stunt was their doing, calling it a “demonstration” to remind Virginians who Youngkin supposedly really is.

Their admission did not ring very convincing, however, and still left unanswered the question of the identity of the people involved in #TikiGate – with the Democrats categorically denying it was their staffers.

After spending the entire day amplifying the stunt, McAuliffe’s campaign issued a statement condemning it after the Lincoln Project came forward.

“What happened today is disgusting and distasteful and we condemn it in the strongest terms. Those involved should immediately apologize,” said campaign manager Chris Bolling.

‘s campaign condemned the stunt. “What happened today is disgusting and distasteful and we condemn it in the strongest terms. Those involved should immediately apologize,” Terry for Virginia Campaign Manager Chris Bolling told me.

The Lincoln Project definitely did not act alone – as Lauren Windsor, a political operative with a pro-Democrat outfit called American Family Voices, admitted she worked with them “to coordinate” the stunt in order to “defend our democracy from rightwing extremists.” 

The tiki-torch getup was clearly meant as a reference to the August 2017 ‘Unite the Right’ rally which ended in a riot. President Donald Trump, who has endorsed Youngkin, was accused by the media and Democrats at the time of supporting the “Nazis.” President Joe Biden made that claim central to the story of why he decided to run against Trump in 2020. Trump in fact unequivocally condemned the neo-Nazis, as well as the man who ran over one of the counter-protesters, killing her.

McAuliffe began his campaign comfortably in the lead, but Youngkin has caught up in recent days. One poll is showing him eight points ahead among likely voters, while another shows him four points in the lead. Not even appearances by Biden and former President Barack Obama in recent weeks could turn the tide, so McAuliffe increasingly turned to accusing Youngkin of racism and bigotry.

The Republican’s surge appears to be related to his opposition to mask mandates and critical race theory in schools, an issue that has exploded to the fore in recent months.

Friday’s stunt was furiously denounced by Sally Hudson, a Virginia Democrat and state delegate whose district includes Charlottesville.

“Charlottesville is not a prop. Our community is still reeling from years of trauma — especially this week,” she tweeted. “Don’t come back,[Project Lincoln]. Your stunts aren’t welcome here.”

Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee, ‘Stonewall’ Jackson Statues Officially Removed

The City of Charlottesville, Virginia, officially removed Saturday morning the statues of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, both of which have been a political flashpoint in the community since the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally that descended into chaos and violence, resulting in the death of 32-year-old protester Heather Heyer.

The removal of the equestrian statues had been halted by litigation and recently-amended state law governing war memorials.

Initial plans to remove the statue four years ago sparked the infamous “Unite the Right” rally where 32 year old Heather Heyer was killed. A statue of Confederate General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson in the Charlottesville and Albemarle County Courthouse Historic District is also scheduled to be removed this weekend.

According to a July 9 press release from the Charlottesville City Council, public viewing areas for the removals were established at both parks where spectators gathered to watch cranes lift the bronze statues from their stone bases.

According to the press release, “only the statuary will be removed. Their stone bases will be left in place temporarily and removed at a later date,” and “Both statues will be stored in a secure location on City property until City Council makes a final decision on disposition.”

The City Council also noted in the press release that they have “solicited for expressions of interest from any museum, historical society, government or military battlefield interested in acquiring the statues, or either of them, for relocation and placement.” The City has received six out-of-state and four in-state responses, but “remains open to additional expressions of interest.”

Before the removals commenced, Charlottesville Mayor Nikuyah Walker marked the event by saying, “Today the statues come down … and we’re one small step closer to a more perfect union,” according to VPM.

The removals come after a years’-long effort among many in the city, beginning with a March 2016 petition to the city council and a recommendation from an advisory body called the Blue Ribbon Commission on Race, Memorials and Public Spaces for the “removal and relocation, or contextualization in place” of the statues.

On February 6, 2017, the city council voted to remove both statues. On March 3 of that year, many persons and groups filed a lawsuit seeking temporary and permanent injunctive relief on all actions regarding the statues. Effective July 1, 2020, Virginia’s General Assembly passed a law allowing localities the power to decide what to do with their war memorials. Finally, on April 1, 2021, the Supreme Court of Virginia decided in favor of the city, allowing for the removals.

The removals come as far-left radicals seek to destroy statuary across the country, with a much broader scope than just Confederates. The City of Charlottesville also decided to remove a statue depicting Lewis, Clarke, and Sacagawea on their exploration of the Louisiana Purchase.

Across the country, however, statues of many Founding Fathers, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, have been destroyed or vandalized. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been singled out as a figure whose statuary deserves to be removed. In Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser has recommended the removal of statues of Christopher Columbus, Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, and even the Washington Monument.

Even former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass saw the chopping block. Douglass, among many other things, is famous for being a proponent of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. In a 1852 speech titled, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” Douglass stated:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA - JULY 10: A flatbed truck carries a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee away from the Market Street Park July 10, 2021 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Fellow Citizens, I am not wanting in respect for the fathers of this republic. The signers of the Declaration of Independence were brave men. They were great men too — great enough to give fame to a great age. It does not often happen to a nation to raise, at one time, such a number of truly great men. The point from which I am compelled to view them is not, certainly, the most favorable; and yet I cannot contemplate their great deeds with less than admiration. They were statesmen, patriots and heroes, and for the good they did, and the principles they contended for, I will unite with you to honor their memory.

They loved their country better than their own private interests; and, though this is not the highest form of human excellence, all will concede that it is a rare virtue, and that when it is exhibited, it ought to command respect. He who will, intelligently, lay down his life for his country, is a man whom it is not in human nature to despise. Your fathers staked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, on the cause of their country. In their admiration of liberty, they lost sight of all other interests.

They were peace men; but they preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage. They were quiet men; but they did not shrink from agitating against oppression. They showed forbearance; but that they knew its limits. They believed in order; but not in the order of tyranny. With them, nothing was “settled” that was not right. With them, justice, liberty and humanity were “final;” not slavery and oppression. You may well cherish the memory of such men. They were great in their day and generation. Their solid manhood stands out the more as we contrast it with these degenerate times.

In the speech lauding America’s founding documents, Douglass argued that the promises of the Declaration and Constitution ought to be extended to black persons to fulfill the promise of the country.

Joe Biden: ‘Terrorism from White Supremacy’ the ‘Most Lethal Threat to the Homeland’

Joe Biden: ‘Terrorism from White Supremacy’ the ‘Most Lethal Threat to the Homeland’

President Joe Biden asserted Tuesday that terrorism from white supremacy was “the most lethal threat” facing the United States.

Biden spoke about the threat of white supremacy during a speech in Tulsa marking the 100th anniversary of the 1921 race massacre in the Greenwood neighborhood.

“According to the intelligence community, terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today,” Biden said. “Not ISIS. Not Al Qaeda. White supremacists.”

Biden was likely referring to a statement from acting U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, who told members of Congress that white supremacy was “the most persistent and lethal threat” to the United States in September 2020. In October 2020, DHS released a report showing that white supremacist extremism accounted for more fatal attacks than any other domestic violent extremist group since 2018.

Biden revisited the massacre of the black community in Tulsa to show the long history of white supremacists in the country — comparing it to the clash between the protesters in Charlottesville.

“What happened in Greenwood was an act of hate and domestic terrorism, with a through-line that exists today,” he said. “Just close your eyes and remember what you saw in Charlottesville four years ago on television.”

It’s Been One Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week For The Democratic Party

It has been one tough week for the left.

Impeachment for political theatre was squashed, the Never Trump Lincoln Project further imploded when it was reported its leaders knew about the sexual harassment allegations against co-founder John Weaver, and the petition to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom D-Calif. reached 1.5 million signatures to likely trigger a special election.

The Donald Trump Charlottesville rhetoric lie was debunked again, and now, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y. is facing bipartisan flack from lawmakers after a Freedom of Information Request (FOIA) request showed as many as 9,000 COVID-19 infected patients were sent to nursing homes under his directive, resulting in one of the nation’s worst COVID scenarios.

Trump Gets Acquitted Again

On Saturday, former President Donald Trump was acquitted in impeachment proceedings for the second time in two years, 57-43 in the Senate. It was the outcome anyone practical knew was coming for weeks—and one that only adds fuel to the left’s endless and compulsive disdain for the 45th president.

While seven Republicans and two independents voted to impeach Trump with the Democrats, they still ended up 10 votes short to achieve the grand number of 67.

Those in favor of impeachment tried to push the unsubstantiated narrative that Trump incited the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6, regardless of the fact that The New York Times documented people were already rioting 20 minutes before his speech even began.

Impeachment may be over—crossing our fingers unless Democrats in Congress unconstitutionally try yet again—but the left’s perpetual obsession with Trump will not end. The blue check marks on Twitter were having a difficult time coping with the expected news on Saturday.

The Lincoln Project Is Totally Screwed

In January, journalist Ryan Girdusky broke a bombshell story in The American Conservative about Never Trump political action committee (PAC) The Lincoln Project’s co-founder John Weaver. Girdusky talked to dozens of young men who alleged Weaver’s sexual harassment and misconduct towards young conservatives and abusing his power. A week after, Weaver resigned and admitted to the mounting allegations.

On Friday, Steve Schmidt, co-founder of The Lincoln Project and a former senior campaign advisor in 2008 to John McCain’s presidential campaign, also resigned. Schmidt claims to have known about Weaver’s misconduct and made his release on Twitter.

“I am resigning my seat on the Lincoln Project board to make room for the appointment of a female board member as the first step to reform and professionalize the Lincoln Project,” Schmidt said.

According to several Lincoln Project employees, leadership at the PAC was briefed on 10 of the allegations against Weaver in June 2020. The organization thus intentionally concealed this information.

Now former employees at The Lincoln Project have demanded immediate release from the non-disclosure agreements signed when Weaver was at the company, to inform the public about more details. Schmidt also came under heavy scrutiny after going on a rampage on Twitter and inappropriately posting screenshots of a direct message conversation between co-founder Jennifer Horn and a reporter from The 19th working on a damning story about the anti-Trump organization.

California Governor Recall Intensifying

The petition to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom reached 1,509,000 signatures on Friday—the minimum needed to lead to a special election. By March, the recall effort has to have received 12 percent of signatures from Californians, which will then be vetted by the California secretary of state.

The Federalist’s Western Correspondent Tristan Justice and Staff Writer Jordan Davidson hosted Rescue California campaign manager Anne Dunsmore on “The Federalist Radio Hour” on Friday.

This is a citizen movement, this is not a political movement,” Dunsmore said. “We’re pursuing a political process to fix the problem for sure, but this isn’t a Trump versus Biden thing.” 

As discussed on the podcast, the intensifying of the recall effort comes after tyrannical lockdowns Newsom instituted in California throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, endlessly shifting goal-posts. Newsom was found hypocritically dining at The French Laundry in December of last year, days after “pulling the emergency brake” on state reopening implementation plans and instituting new lockdown rules.

The Republican National Committee donated $250,000 to the recall efforts, as Newsom looks more and more probable to defend his rule to voters quite soon.

Charlottesville Hoax Gets A Nail in The Coffin

Since the Charlottesville, Va protests in Aug. 2017, Democrats have continually pushed the false narrative that President Trump said there were “fine people” on both sides, referring to white supremacists. This has been debunked many times by non-leftist media sources, and was justly given the national attention it deserves on Saturday during the impeachment trial by lead defense attorney David Schoen.

After the clip that corporate media used to manipulate the public, Trump says the following: “You have people, and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazi’s and white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally, but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazi’s and white nationalists…”

“Destroying the Charlottesville “fine people” hoax,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, “Make sure you watch this all the way through and see if it aligns with what the media told you Trump said. Hint: IT WON’T Today’s media is a disgrace.”

So much for the left’s infatuation with calling Trump a racist because of this purposeful editing botch.

Cuomo Finally Getting The Bipartisan Shame He Deserves

What conservative media outlets have reported on for months is finally being accepted by those on the left. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., sent as many as 9,000 COVID-19 infected elderly patients back to nursing homes, which led to high rates of deaths in his state among the elderly.

On Friday, Cuomo’s top aide released a statement acknowledging that the office delayed reporting on fatality data because of concerns that it was “going to be used against us.” A court order and New York state attorney general report showed in the last few weeks that the total nursing home fatality rate is one-seventh of all residents living in nursing homes in the state. 15,000 died in total.

In August, President Trump was vocal about Cuomo’s mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic “Now AP estimates that the real Cuomo number of people killed because of his total incompetence is 11,000, not the 6000 that was originally thought!” Trump tweeted.

Nonetheless, leftists sided with Cuomo and assisted with his coverup, all to oppose the bad orange man. Now, though, Democrats are waking up to his incompetence. Several Democratic New York senators signed a joint letter to strip Cuomo of emergency powers and state Sen. Jessica Ramos D-N.Y. sent a separate letter.

“At a time when we need New Yorkers to trust their elected officials the most, the governor and his administration knowingly chose to lie and play politics with New Yorkers’ lives,” Ramos wrote, the same day the New York GOP congressional delegation sent a letter asking the Justice Department to investigate obstruction of justice in Cuomo’s blocking of the nursing home investigation.

“BREAKING: NY GOP Congressional delegation is calling on @TheJusticeDept to open Obstruction of Justice investigation into Cuomo/his admin. They covered-up the true consequences of his nursing home policy & now it’s being reported they withheld info to block a DOJ investigation!” Republican state Rep. Lee Zeldin tweeted.

We witnessed five catastrophes worsen for Democrats, all in the course of one week. One only wonders how bad it will continue to get as the ill results of COVID lockdowns continue to become impossible to ignore.

New York Times: Unite The Country Against The Trump Voters

New York Times: Unite The Country Against The Trump Voters

The New York Times published an article on Thursday amplifying the calls of people who think President Joe Biden’s plan for unity needs to include “healing [that] requires holding perpetrators accountable.”

“Mr. Biden should not pitch unity to those who oppose shared political power, they say, but should unite the country in defeating those who stand in the way,” the author wrote. Using interviews with some of the civil rights activists involved in the 2017 Charlottesville riots, the article promotes the idea that Biden should “go beyond seeing unity as the ultimate political goal and prioritize a sense of justice that uplifts the historically marginalized.”

“Unity follows justice,” one of the interviewees stated.

The article then continued to explain and give a voice to the protesters who believe unity is not feasible with people who support President Donald Trump.

“We have a whole major political party that, too large of a section of it, supports undemocratic practices, voter suppression, and the coddling of these conspiracy theories,” Dr. Jalane Schmidt, an activist and professor at the University of Virginia, told the Times. “So healing? Unity? You can’t do that with people who don’t adhere to basic democratic principles.”

“Unity is not uniformity, and unity is not without accountability,” a local reverend added. “It’s really hard to be unified with people if you don’t have a common understanding of truth and a common understanding of justice. Otherwise, we’re speaking completely different languages.”

The author continued to carry this narrative, writing that the activists’ words should “challenge Mr. Biden, Democrats and the country to see this month’s attack at the Capitol not as an isolated riot inspired by a divisive president, but as the latest flashpoint in a longer civil rights struggle that threatens the nation’s core values.”

The underlying issue with Biden’s so-called unity, the interviewees overwhelmingly claimed, is the opposition from others to their efforts to push a racial agenda. The only solution, they continued, is to discipline any dissenters.

“For them, this year’s mob violence took aim at the peaceful transfer of presidential power, but it’s the broader transfer of democratic power — from a largely white America to a rising multicultural coalition — that is testing the nation,” the author concluded.

These words echo the sentiments reflected in Biden’s inauguration speech, where, shortly after calling for a united nation, he lobbed accusations at Trump supporters, employing language such as “political extremism, white supremacy,” and “domestic terrorism.”

Joe Biden Uses Adolf Hitler in Campaign Ad

Former Vice President Joe Biden has used footage of Nazi dictator and mass murderer Adolf Hitler in a new campaign ad attacking President Donald Trump.

The video, released by the Biden/Harris campaign on Oct. 25, combines Biden’s stump speech about the Charlottesville riots in August 2017 with the song “Where Is the Love” by the Black Eyed Peas, also featuring vocalist Jennifer Hudson.

The effort appears to be an attempt to re-create will.i.am’s 2008 video, “Yes We Can,” which set a speech by then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) to music.

Though the speech was delivered after Obama suffered a surprise loss in the New Hampshire primary, it had an electrifying effect on his campaign, inspiring activists to continue the fight.

In Biden’s ad, the former vice president speaks straight to camera, repeating the Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax — the false claim that President Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people.” (In fact, Trump said that the neo-Nazis should be “condemned totally.”)

One sequence in the video features archival footage of Adolf Hitler saluting a crowd in Nazi Germany. The crowd returns the infamous, chilling salute.

Biden’s use of Hitler violates a requests by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a left-leaning Jewish civil rights organization, which asked candidates to avoid references to Nazis and the Holocaust in the 2020 campaign.

Recently, the ADL rebuked a left-wing organization for an ad that featured “images and video footage from Nazi Germany in a split-screen with images and photos of Trump rallies,” as described in The Hill. 

“The video … is the latest in growing references to Hitler, Goebbels or other Nazi leaders. This has no place in the presidential race and is deeply offensive to the memories of 6M+ Jews systematically exterminated during the Shoah [Holocaust],” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt tweeted.

“We urge leaders & their surrogates to refrain from invoking the #Holocaust in the context of the current election. It is not the same. Stay focused on the issues,” he added.

Despite the use of Nazi imagery, Biden has said that his campaign — what he calls the “battle for the soul of our nation” — aims to unify Americans.

The Trump Charlottesville Neo-Nazi Misquote Is A Political Hit Job

The Trump Charlottesville Neo-Nazi Misquote Is A Political Hit Job

If a dollar were deposited in the U.S. Treasury for every time President Trump was misquoted about the 2017 Charlottesville, N.C. standoff between neo-Nazis and the mostly Antifa crowd, we could make significant inroads in paying off our national debt.

In 2020, Democrats are still lying about the president’s actual statements and pushing the propaganda that he said “there were fine people on both sides,” referring to neo-Nazis. Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris made the false claim again in her debate last week with Republican Vice President Mike Pence. Pence pointed out that Trump’s comments on “both sides” were aimed not at racists but at Americans who disagree over historic monuments.

Here is the actual quote from President Trump at the press conference in August 2017:“Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

Shortly afterward, President Trump clarified and unequivocally stated his condemnation of white supremacists: “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.”

Democrats are constantly using lies and misrepresentation against the president, even to the point of making vile comparisons of Trump to Adolf Hitler. Given the Trump family’s long-standing support of the Jewish community, it is laughable that anyone would smear the president with the charge of white supremacy.

Like most Americans, President Trump most likely assumed it is well understood that neo-Nazis are despicable, so well understood that it does not need to be said, although for good measure, he did absolutely condemn the adherents of this vicious hatred.

President Trump’s personal connections with the Jewish community go back many decades. Fred Trump, the president’s father, had a real estate business largely centered in Queens, N.Y. In the 1950s, Fred Trump’s numerous buildings had many Jewish Holocaust survivors as tenants.

Fred Trump also took a personal interest in supporting Jewish communal institutions. He donated land for the Beach Haven Jewish Center in Flatbush, N.Y. and donated to its construction. A plaque dedicated to Fred Trump still exists there today. President Trump’s father also was a prominent donor to the Long Island Jewish Hospital.

President Trump himself has charitable ties to Israel that span decades. Through the Jewish National Fund, he donated towards resettling Jews in the Negev after the expulsion of Israeli Jews from the Sinai as part of a peace deal with Egypt.

In 2005, President Trump donated money to help Jews who were displaced from the Gush Katif when Israel withdrew from Gaza. The Jewish National Fund in 1983 bestowed upon President Trump the prestigious “Tree of Life Award.” Trump also gave generously towards a Jewish community in the Samaria region of Israel.

Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, the American Defamation League (ADL), and the Museum of Jewish Heritage are among the U.S. Jewish organizations Trump has supported. United Hatzalah, a voluntary EMS organization in Israel, was the recipient of a $100,000 donation from Donald Trump in 2014. Business dealings in Israel were additionally on offer at one point through the Trump Organization.

A long history of Jewish charitable donations and deep respectful Israel relations apparently is not enough to placate Democrats, whose leadership refuses to publicly rebuke antisemites. Please name one Democrat president who has had such tight connections with the Jewish community both here and in Israel as President Trump. One does not exist.

Despite Democrats’ attempts to tie President Trump to antisemitic violence in the United States, the shooter at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh did not name Trump as his inspiration. The shooter of the Poway Chabad Center in California actually called Trump a “Zionist, Jew-loving” traitor.

In fact, many neo-Nazis take issue with Trump for having so many Jewish advisors and for being strongly pro-Israel. On the other hand, the leftists of the Democrat Party and the neo-Nazis have joined forces in their hatred of Jews. David Duke has enthusiastically praised Rep. Ilhan Omar on social media, for example.

Trump is literally tied to the Jewish people by family. Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka, not only married an Orthodox Jew, Jared Kushner, but fully converted to Judaism in the Orthodox tradition. President Trump has a very close relationship with his son-in-law and his three Jewish grandchildren.

Despite a hectic campaign in 2016, shortly before Election Day, Ivanka and Jared visited the Ohel, the gravesite of the Chabad Lubavitcher Rebbe. Enough with the abhorrent lies about the current president; today Jews truly have a friend and supporter in the White House.
