The Trump Team Is No More Anti-Semitic Than Democrats Are

We all know the stereotypes for Jewish women and girls: Aggressive, demanding, pushy! Maybe some might say “whiny”!

If you’re a Jewish man, you’ve either given voice to these opinions or privately considered them while walking home after another argument or sitting in a restaurant feeling emasculated. “All stereotypes are true” Murry Rothbard once said, and we all know there’s truth to this one. Yet what kind of non-Jewish person would DARE to voice to the same opinion? Clearly, only Hitler. Or Stephen Bannon.

Liberal Jews are currently freaking out, badly. They are upset, like all liberals, that the bubble they’ve been living in for the past five or so years was a lie. It was an absolute, outright lie, constructed by media and entertainment sources they refused to question. While non-Jewish liberals have helpfully responded to their electoral defeat by doubling down on anti-white racism, rioting, and general cluelessness, Jewish liberals are doing all of this and acting as though Hitler is riding into town on the Trump train.

That brings us back to Bannon. Trump’s pick as top White House advisor has an ex-wife who claimed he didn’t want his kids going to school with “whiny Jewish girls”—in divorce proceedings, no less. Otherwise his resume includes opening Breitbart in Israel, working with Goldman Sachs, and some time spent in Hollywood. David Horowitz claims to be a personal friend.

But hey, his ex-wife says he hates Jews! Also, he runs Breitbart, which liberals hate. Therefore? Piece after piece in the mainstream media, claiming he’s a “white nationalist.”

This isn’t even the worst of it. You’ve probably seen the hysterical articles claiming Jews are actually under threat. Perhaps the first prize here belongs to Mark Joseph Stern over at Slate, who wrote an article entitled “I’m a Gay Jew in Trump’s America, and I Fear for My Life.” It contains such gems as:

This kind of emotional rhetoric in response to a free and fair election is unbelievable, and beyond that, it’s morally wrong. Donald Trump has never said anything anti-Semitic either publicly or privately where someone could recall (and you know people would have remembered). Most Trump supporters are conservatives who also support Israel. Aside from Internet trolls and a few random individuals, Trump’s campaign hasn’t been “more anti-Semitic” than any other.

Mark isn’t just saying Trump has a problem with Jews, but that so many other Americans do that Trump will be able to overcome government checks and balances and go after the Jewish community. What a disgusting, bigoted, and unfair way to view your fellow Americans.

It’s time for liberal Jews to stop. We know you are angry that you lost. We know you don’t like Trump, but claiming that America has become anti-Semitic, or that it’s not a friendly country for Jews, is a slap in the face to the country that, besides Israel, has been the best home for Jewish people in thousands of years. Americans have again and again expressed support for Israel, particularly conservative Christian Americans. America remains largely free of the violent anti-Semitism sweeping Europe. What’s the problem?

As a postscript, it’s interesting to point out that while Trump reaches out to Israel and works with Jews on a daily basis, the Democratic National Committee might put anti-Israel Rep. Keith Ellison in charge. But hey, Bannon said Jewish girls were whiny, so I guess getting stabbed in the back by the DNC is less important—right?
