.@peterbakernyt + @maggieNYT are world-class journalists but the @nytimes needs to change this headline. Trump isn’t targeting anti-Semitism. He’s using a bogus definition of anti-Semitism to target critics of Israel https://t.co/V1fcDV8Kad— Peter Beinart (@PeterBeinart) December 10, 2019
While important @POTUS called out BDS and #antiSemitism, it's essentially undone by his own trafficking of #antiSemitic tropes: questioning American Jews’ loyalty to Israel and asserting that Jewish voters only care about their wealth. https://t.co/m14rh45C5b— Jonathan Greenblatt (@JGreenblattADL) December 8, 2019
I’m not voting for Donald Trump in 2020.
It is clear that he has sold out to a handful of Jewish billionaires. It is also clear that both the culture war and the policy agenda will continue to be a Zionist wish list. We got a corporate tax cut and mainstreaming homosexuality out of the last election.
“WASHINGTON — President Trump plans to sign an executive order on Wednesday targeting what he sees as anti-Semitism on college campuses by threatening to withhold federal money from educational institutions that fail to combat discrimination, three administration officials said on Tuesday.
The order will effectively interpret Judaism as a nationality, not just a religion, to trigger a federal law penalizing colleges and universities deemed to be shirking their responsibility to foster an open climate for minority students, according to the officials, who insisted on anonymity to discuss the matter before the announcement.
In signing the order, Mr. Trump will use his executive power to take action where Congress has not, essentially replicating bipartisan legislation that has stalled on Capitol Hill for years. …
The executive order to be signed on Wednesday stemmed from an effort spearheaded by Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and senior adviser, who is the Jewish grandson of Holocaust survivors.”
The GOP has spent the entire year “fighting anti-Semitism.” It hasn’t done anything else for its voters all year. We vote for the GOP to “stop the Democrats” and because of resentment about all sorts of other issues (abortion, immigration, guns, war, political correctness) and the result is always the same. We end up getting whatever is on Sheldon Adelson’s mind because he is buying the policy agenda and nullifying what Republican voters want.
