In addition to omitting any mention of Jews in the White House’s statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day, the newly-issued list of domestic and international terrorist attacks which Donald Trump believes didn’t get enough coverage from mainstream media conspicuously omitted any mention of terrorist attacks in Israel:
No attacks in Israel were included on a list of 78 “underreported” terrorist attacks released by the White House….
Attacks in Israel were omitted from the list, though over 350 terrorist attacks — including stabbings, shootings, vehicular ramming attacks and a bus bombing — have taken place since Sept. 13, 2015, according to a report released last month by Israel’s Foreign Affairs Ministry.
Any response from Republicans, the noble defenders of all things Israel?
But it reminded me of this lovely piece from Kevin Williamson over at the National Review:
Hey, Kevin. Remember that time Trump Jr offhandedly made a joking reference to the Holocaust?:
“They’ve let [Hillary Clinton] slide on every indiscrepancy, on every lie, on every DNC game trying to get Bernie Sanders out of this thing. If Republicans were doing that, they’d be warming up the gas chamber right now.”
Or how about when Trump tweeted this image of Clinton with the caption “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” inside the Star of David?:
Or when he twice retweeted a user who goes by the handled @WhiteGenocideTM, an account that regularly tweets anti-Semitic material?:
Or the anti-Semitic graffiti that appeared in the wake of Trump’s victory?:
Or that time not so long ago when Steve Bannon, who until he joined Trump’s campaign was the head of the notoriously anti-Semitic “news” site Breitbart, was put on the National Security Council?
Yeah. Clearly it’s the left that has this problem, not Trump and the people he surrounds himself with, not the people who supported and endorsed him like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell—and David Duke. Whatever you say, buddy.
