You must be right. People never change their positions dramatically in =
politics in just a couple of years for expediency's sake. And what
would ADL know about Anti-Semitism, after all?
-at-TeamTrump should avoid rhetoric&tropes that historically have been

Trump's Anti-Semitic Speech Came From Breitbart, The Alt-Right, And
October 14, 2016 12:30 PM EDT ALEX KAPLAN
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump=E2=80=99s October 13 speech
pushed the conspiracy theory that the media, corporations, and =E2=80=9Cg=
financial powers=E2=80=9D such as banks are, in concert, harming America =
working with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to defeat
him. This claim -- which several journalists noted was an anti-Semitic
dog whistle -- comes from the white nationalist =E2=80=9Calt-right=E2=80=
which includes the website of Trump=E2=80=99s campaign CEO, Breitbart New=
radio host conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
WASHINGTON =E2=80=93 Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on
Thursday invoked a series of stereotypes about Jews that are often
deemed offensive and even anti-Semitic =E2=80=94 in an address to Jewish
=E2=80=9CI=E2=80=99m a negotiator like you folks were negotiators,=E2=80=
=9D the controversial
candidate declared to his audience at the Republican Jewish Coalition,
as he explained that he would broker a stronger nuclear deal with Iran
than the one concluded earlier this year. At another point in his
speech, he said: =E2=80=9CIs there anyone in this room who doesn=E2=80=99=
deals? Probably more than any room I=E2=80=99ve ever spoken.=E2=80=9D
His speech came at the tail end of a morning of addresses in which the
other Republican candidates boasted of their pro-Israel credentials and
their close ties to the US Jewish community.
Although Trump did reiterate his tight ties with his =E2=80=9Cfriend=E2=
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the audience wasn=E2=80=99t tolerant of the =
attempts to duck a question on Jerusalem. Asked about his position on
the unification of the Israeli capital, Trump refused to commit =E2=80=93=
most Republican candidates have =E2=80=93 to declaring the city to be the
eternal capital of the Jewish state, and was greeted with boos.
However, the audience did not offer any negative response when Trump
told them, =E2=80=9CYou=E2=80=99re not gonna support me even though you kn=
ow I=E2=80=99m the
best thing that could ever happen to Israel. And I=E2=80=99ll be that.=E2=
continued, evoking a stereotype about Jews, money and control, =E2=80=9CA=
know why you=E2=80=99re not going to support me. You=E2=80=99re not going=
to support me
because I don=E2=80=99t want your money. Isn=E2=80=99t it crazy?=E2=80=9D

Donald Trump shares images and tweets from white supremacists with his
millions of followers. They, in turn, use social media to attack Jews
who publicly oppose Trump=E2=80=99s election or simply ask Trump to stop =
footsie with fascists. These attacks are often explicitly anti-Semitic.
For most of these Jews, this is their first time being subjected to
anti-Semitic attacks. As we have seen from their testimonials, it is an
Dana Schwartz found herself in this situation. Among the threats and
jeers, an image of Schwartz in a gas chamber and a smiling Trump with
his finger on the button. But unlike most journalists, she happened to
work at the New York Observer, a newspaper owned by Donald Trump=E2=80=99s
son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Kushner is more than just a Trump by marriage. He is a confident of the
candidate, an advisor and a fixer. He is also, like Lieberman,
religiously devout Jew and an ardent Zionist.
So Schwartz wrote a public letter to Kushner. How, she asked, could he
support a man who promotes anti-Semitic propaganda and whose followers
attack Jews with anti-Semitic language and imagery?=C2=A0
Kushner responded. =C2=A0He testified to Trump=E2=80=99s acceptance of hi=
m and his
wife, who converted to Judaism. He told his own family=E2=80=99s harrowing
Holocaust story.=C2=A0 He asserted that the accusations against Trump are
He condemned the attacks on Schwartz. And then he seemed to concede the
obvious. The Star of David money shot was a problem. It was no ordinary
star. It had been posted in haste. Trump (or his team) can be =E2=80=9Cca=
and make =E2=80=9Csmall mistakes.=E2=80=9D
Later that day, at a press conference, Trump disagreed. =C2=A0He hadn=E2=
careless and no mistakes had been made. The tweet, which had been
removed, should have stayed up. =C2=A0The Jewish star on the pile of money
held no deeper meaning. While he didn=E2=80=99t mention Kushner by name, =
rebuke was plain.
According to classic anti-Semitic myth, Jews exert control from behind
the scenes. So a Lieberman or a Sanders, while undesirable to the
typical anti-Semite, is ironically less of a threat than Jewish
reporters, financiers, and intellectuals pulling the strings behind the
scenes. And, less of a threat than a Jew like Jared, whispering in
When push comes to shove, and push certainly will come to shove, Jews
should know that Trump doesn=E2=80=99t need them. That=E2=80=99s what he =
assembled at the Republican Jewish Coalition this past December; it=E2=80=
what he told the press when he undercut his son-in-law.
He needs only the mob. Jews are expendable.=C2=A0
I'm sure you're right. All of this is just paranoid imagination. He'd
never just try to use you, and have fallen in love with the support of =
anti-Semitic mobs and organizations (Breitbart News, Alex Jones). I
mean, that would be wrong.
