Republicans Don't Want To Curb Anti-Semitism; They Want To Weaponize It

Trump has touted a front group trying to lure Jews away from the Democratic Party

Republicans are trying to lure Jewish voters from the Democratic Party by using Israel and anti-Semitism as wedge issues and by creating a campaign — that turns the story of Jewish slavery into something of a quip — to target millennials.

President Donald Trump has gone so far as to assert that Democrats don’t care about Jews or Israel.

But the so-called “Jexodus” that the White House and other conservative lawmakers have trumpeted is little more than a barebones website created by a political operative with close ties to the Trump campaign and other far-right causes.

Republicans are insisting there is a sizable and growing movement among American Jews — especially younger ones — to abandon the Democratic Party for supposedly embracing anti-Semitism, or at least anti-Israel positions. Trump himself made the case this week via Twitter, signal boosting one of his own former campaign staffers who is now purportedly the face a new group calling itself “Jexodus.”

The “Jexodus” that Trump promoted to his 59 million followers? It’s little more than a landing page, set up the day before the 2018 midterm elections, directing people to sparse Twitter and Facebook accounts. The first thing on the homepage states: “We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics.”

1. Maybe certain Democrats shouldn't make it so easy then

I'm sorry, but there's no defending Omar. She's a bigot. Full stop. I am embarrassed to see fellow Democrats defending or trying to talk around her plain as day bigotry at this point. And Tlaib chiming in, "It's all Islamophobia!" is just disgusting.

Too many Democrats shat full force onto the good sheets in trying to gaslight everyone with two eyes the past few weeks.

When your partisanship is so strong that you have to pretend actual Nazi-level anti-semitism isn't entirely wrong - "You know, she may have a point . . . " Oh fuck right off with that shit.

I'll have no part, thanks. I have this thing called shame.

If Omar's words came out of a Republican's mouth, I somehow doubt most Democrats would embrace so much greasy opacity to avoid clarity on the issue.

14. All they see is brown people

Honestly. It's a patronizingly racist view. If you criticize Islam, you get called a racist. It's the only lens a lot of the social Left see the world through, a series of -isms.

Plus Christians don't seem to like Islam, and if Christians are against it, I'm all for it!

If you're looking for a sophisticated answer of why Islam gets an upper tier on the Totem of Oppression, you're just not going to find one.

I'm a white gay cisgendered male. They only pay attention to my issues if there's nothing better going on that day. And even then, my existence is, per the parlance, "problematic" for many of the SJW types.

I stopped ingesting their crazy awhile ago. Now I'm just hoping they get better medication.

22. It is simple, moderate islam is a hoax, a lie, a cover...

Their good book tells them that it is ok to rape all non muslim women, it is ok to tell any lie necessary to further the cause of islam and that the end goal is to kill or enslave all non believers and rule the world.

As I said, it is simple to know what they want just read the Koran.

28. Have you ever . . . read the Bible?

There are moderate Muslims. I know because I'm friends with some. I have Muslim neighbors. Perfectly nice people who know very well I'm gay. They bring me homemade food (so fucking good) and let me watch their child when I'm home and they need someone to. Does that sound like galloping bigots antithetical to Western values?

This is not to say I don't think fundamentalist Islam isn't a problem. Right now we have a perfect storm of dumb shit in the West, especially in Europe. Europe's having the best of times. Absorb a few million refugees, declare that wanting them to assimilate is colonialist and racist, and watch the fireworks.

I'm very much for assimilation. And if a religious system is antithetical to Western values, I do not particularly want it here. It's why I'm not terribly opposed to heavy scrutiny of immigrants, asylum seekers, or refugees from places where fundamentalist Islam is dominant. Christianity adjusted over time. Islam can, too. There are Muslims out there advocating for that adjustment. They just get no play, because they don't suit the stereotype.

But the moderate ones? The liberal ones? I'm sorry. I'm not going to join you in being bigoted against them.

34. Lived in England, spent lots of time in Europe

Where SJW madness reigned and they let fundamentalist Islam creep in. I'm sure you've see the scandals. Look at the Birmingham situation with the schools. The Rochdale sex ring. The honor killings. How second generations were groomed for terror. Gay people being beaten in Amsterdam.

And then Parliament, rather crazily, somehow managed to make blasphemy against Islam a crime.

I *know* fundamentalist Islam is antithetical to the West and a danger. I'm not denying it.

What I don't do is condemn every Muslim on earth for it. That's where you and I part ways.

21. So she said that AIPAC uses money and influence to further their Lobby agenda within

Congress.

So f_cking what ?

What Lobby does not do this ???

George Soros funds a Lobby to influence Congress members with the Lefty agenda.

Planned Parenthood gives money to influence Congress members.

So does the NRA and dozens of other " Special interest groups ".
