Silence Is Assent: The JEW-S-A Edition

I’ve mentioned before that the Republican Party has a Jewish problem–and it’s not the one the racist right would claim. Well, at a Trump rally on Saturday, there was this lovely asshole:

It’s not that the crowd joined in, but no one–out of a very large crowd–told him to shut up. And it comes from the leadership:

…a recent exchange between Republican congressman and [former] Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who is Jewish, and Politico reporter Mike Allen about Cantor’s opposition to a Republican primary candidate, Rep. Manzullo, highlights one very important reason…:

But the story got a little more fraught when it turned out that Manzullo once said Cantor would not be “saved” because he is Jewish.

Today, Cantor, the only Jewish House Republican, nearly affirmed that this was the reason he fought against Manzullo’s re-election, insinuating that anti-Semitism — and racism — are lingering problems among the House GOP generally. He [was] speaking at a breakfast event organized by Politico.

Calling it the “darker side,” Cantor responded to Politico’s Mike Allen’s question of whether there is anti-semitism in Congress by trying to avoid commenting. But eventually he let up: “I think that all of us know that in this country, we’ve not always gotten it right in terms of racial matters, religious matters, whatever. We continue to strive to provide equal treatment to everybody.”

We’re talking about the House Republican Caucus, not America,” Allen pushed.

Cantor then sat in silence, grimmacing for several seconds

There is no balm in Gilead for these sin-sick souls.

    I got news for you. The Left is just as – possibly more – anti-Semitic than the Right. Go read the comments sections at Alternet or The Nation on any topic mentioning Israel and you will see the same vile prejudice raise its ugly head once you drill past the “Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitism” protests. Which you sort of need to do, since their narrative of the Israeli-Palestinian issue does not even bear a passing relationship to historical accuracy.

    I get feeds from left-wing political and atheism groups on Facebook, and they are jam-packed with anti-Semitic propaganda. Especially popular is the “We can’t have X.Y.or Z. nice things in America because American tax dollars go to Israel.” Challenge any part of these schema and you will learn how a cabal of International Jewish bankers and Hollywood producers is running the most powerful lobby in Washington to ensure the ethnic cleansing and genocide of noble Palestinians forced into prison camps on lands Jews stole using Zionist thuggery and murder.

    Jewish students are non grata at college campus events, groups, councils all across the country. Anti-Semitism is the worst I have ever seen it in my lifetime.

    Yes, anti-semitism is now at its worst since WWII in the western world. But as far as the anti-semitism of Trump is concerned, you can read:
    I also invite everyone to watch the video of Milo Yiannopoulos where he drapes an Israeli flag on the stage. He himself is also the son of a Jewish mother.
