The False Narrative That the Democratic Party Is Antisemitic

Charles Selengut’s piece (“Do Jews Have a Future in the United States? A Pessimistic View,”

August 19, 2021) is the latest in a series of op-eds that promulgate the false narrative positing the Democratic Party is antisemitic. All mention the small minority (Omar, Tlaib, etc.) as proof of this contention. It is convenient for all to disregard the role the Republicans and the former POTUS (“I am a nationalist”) have played in promoting and amplifying white nationalism and intolerance. For years we had neonazi Steve King (R-Iowa) who was repeatedly endorsed by the Republicans. We had the “very fine people”’ who marched chanting “The Jews will not replace us.” Remember, Soros, the cosmopolitan Jew, who “sponsored” the immigrant caravan. How about Rep Green’s (R-Ga) statement that “Rothschild lasers are the cause of wildfires in the West.” Minority leader McCarthy did not feel it necessary to denounce her statement until pressured by the Congress and the media. What about Reps Bobert and Gazner? Charles’ information concerning the White Identity movement is out of date. Particularly revealing is the fact that QAnon, a virulently antisemitic conspiracy theory with its own modern-day version of the blood libel, along with white nationalists, make up at least 20% of the Republican base. Tolerance of these views is de rigueur for the quisling Republican leadership.

We have an exPOTUS who continues to subvert Torah values, e.g., the rule of law, fomented the insurrection of the MAGA terrorists, refused the peaceful transfer of power, and continues the Big Lie, undermining the very nature of democracy in the U.S. Don’t be distracted by those who parrot the party of Trump’s speaking points (“Only pay attention to what I say, not what you see”), and recognize the right wing reality distortion field for what it truly is.
