A lot of folks are especially in mainstream media are once again ganging up to label Trump & associates anti-Semitic. AIPAC leaders are reportedly shaking & ADL is appalled at Steve Bannon’s appt. How do they know SB is anti-Semitic? An ex-wife says so & all divorced folks know how reliable the statements of an ex are…no ax to grind here. Then there’s Ben Shapiro whose politics are to the right of Atilla the Hun. Read his stuff stupid stuff. BTW BS worked at Breitbart that employed SB for 4 years & never complained once about SB’s anti-Semitism. Then he quite not over SB but Breitbart’s non-support of a female “reporter” for Breitbart who claimed Trump’s mgr pushed her in a campaign scrum. For more info read the truth about who called Kristol a renegade Jew
“Steve Bannon runs an anti-Semitic website, is a misogynist, and will be one of Donald Trump’s senior advisors”
An anti-Semite–in the white house?! Woa. Boy, that sounds really bad.
But I have no doubt that Phd student Mathew Rozsa (who wrote this) will take the trouble to back up this very serious charge. After all, he IS a Phd student. So he definitely knows how to make an argument.
His main charge is that, “During Bannon’s reign over Breitbart, the website ran articles referring to conservative commentator Bill Kristol as a “renegade Jew”
Hm. Calling someone a renegade Jew is anti-Semitic? That depends on the context, doesn’t it? So let me have a look at the article…
Oh wait! The “anti-semitic” Breitbart article was written by David Horowitz, who is himself a Jew:
You would think that Matthew Rozsa, Phd student, would at least mention that the author of this “anti-Semitic” article was himself Jewish. But for some reason he doesn’t do that. I wonder why? Guess he just forgot.
But lemme read the article for context. Maybe Horowitz will turn out to be a self-hating anti-Semitic Jew. Let’s see…
Oh wait! Horowitz has rebutted a list of Kristol’s anti-Trump criticisms, and then, in the final paragraph, he gives the “renegade Jew” of the headline its context:
“I am a Jew who has never been to Israel and has never been a Zionist in the sense of believing that Jews can rid themselves of Jew hatred by having their own nation state. But half of world Jewry now lives in Israel, and the enemies whom Obama and Hillary have empowered — Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, ISIS, and Hamas — have openly sworn to exterminate the Jews. I am also an American (and an American first), whose country is threatened with destruction by the same enemies. To weaken the only party that stands between the Jews and their annihilation, and between America and the forces intent on destroying her, is a political miscalculation so great and a betrayal so profound as to not be easily forgiven.”
So there you have it. To Horowitz, who is himself a Jew, Kristol is a “renegade Jew” because he supports a candidate who imperils the longterm safety and security of American Jews.
