Essay:Anti-Semitism in 2019
2019 has been a particularly unique year for anti-Semitism. Obviously I'm not talking about Trump; he's got to be the most philo-Semitic President ever! But anti-Semitism, generally on the part of people who hate the President, is at an all-time high. Note that this runs contrary to the media narrative of anti-Semitism on the part of Trump supporters being at an all-time high, due to Trump.
- 2019 Women's March: Held by the female entourage of Louis Farrakhan, this march shocked left-leaning Jewish women so much that they held a separate march at the same time and the mainstream media criticized the march. The march alienated Jewish women, and Tamika Mallory refused to condemn Louis Farrakhan while Linda Sarsour used the march to promote BDS.
- Ilhan Omar Tweets: Ilhan Omar came under fire multiple times in 2019, for tweeting that support for Israel in the U.S. is "all about the Benjamins, baby!" and for tweeting that "AIPAC" manipulates American politicians through money and power to encourage strong, wholehearted support of the Jewish State. The latter tweet was praised by white identitarian James Allsup, who in an address to a white nationalist group said that he wouldn't be thoroughly discussing President Trump because, "this is American Renaissance, not Israeli Renaissance," and believes in the "browning of America."
- Poway Synagogue Shooting: On April 27, 2019, four Jewish people were shot in the Chabad of Poway synagogue by a strong sympathizer of the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooter, who murdered 11 Jewish people after shouting "All Jews must die!" and called Trump "a globalist, not a nationalist," and said, "There is no #MAGA as long as there's a k*** infestation." The shooter also sympathized with the man who shot up two Christchurch mosques in New Zealand, who was an anti-capitalist, "eco-fascist," and, regarding Trump's policies, said, "Dear God, no," he doesn't support them. The Poway synagogue shooter himself called Trump a "Zionist, Anti-White, Traitorous, C*********." A Jewish woman he shot died from her injuries.
- The Squad Vs. Israel: In August 2019, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were barred from Israel for their virulent anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. In planning for their trip, the two referred to the entire Jewish State as "Palestine," and made no plans to meet with Israeli politicians or members of government, instead planning to meet with various groups and individuals who want to destroy the State of Israel. The mainstream media immediately went into a frenzy and predictably blamed Trump for the anti-Semitic Congresswomen being banned from the Jewish State, except for, notably, the Washington Post. The neo-Nazi website Stormfront defended the Squad members, and fiercely attacked President Trump, who they repeatedly referred to as "anti-white." Subsequently, the two Democrat Congresswomen shared a cartoon by a Holocaust denier which depicted Trump and Netanyahu's hands over the mouths of Omar and Tlaib, their blue sleeves along with a Star of David in the center forming the Israeli flag. President Trump, in an incredible display of irony by the media, was accused of anti-Semitism after criticizing Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for being anti-Semitic and, in the conclusion to that statement, suggesting that Jewish Democrats would have to be self-hating Jews. Even mainstream conservative Ben Shapiro implied that Trump's comments may have been anti-Semitic.
- Ben Shapiro Flyers: In November 2019, ahead of a planned speech by Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro at Stanford University, a leftist student group released flyers condemning Shapiro for hate speech while depicting his face next to insects on a bottle of pesticide. Ben Shapiro, by both religion and ethnicity, is Jewish. Ironically, he would condemn white nationalism throughout the speech, but still be heckled by leftist protesters.
