On Saturday morning, a lone gunman entered a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and began shooting. He murdered eleven Jews at prayer, and injured more, including police who responded. The murderer was captured alive; he is reported to have said, “All these Jews need to die.”
It was an anti-Semitic attack by someone who, according to his social media posts, thought that Donald Trump was too pro-Jewish, too pro-Israel.
But of course that’s not enough for the Media Party, especially just a week or so away from the U.S. mid-term elections.
The Washington Post ran this piece:
‘He is not welcome here’: Thousands support Pittsburgh Jewish leaders calling on Trump to ‘denounce white nationalism’
Thousands? It’s official, people. You might not think Trump is a Nazi. But the Jewish people clearly do, and they should know!
Except that’s not really what happened, was it?
Let me read the story:
More than 16,000 people have signed an open letter to President Trump from the leaders of a Pittsburgh-based Jewish group who say the president will not be welcome in the city unless he denounces white nationalism and stops “targeting” minorities after a mass shooting Saturday at a local synagogue left 11 dead.
So... it’s an online petition, like getting Facebook "likes" online. Only 16,000? We’ve got petitions at the Rebel ten times as large as that.
But again — "leaders of a Pittsburgh-based Jewish group." Who are these Jewish leaders?
It’s a group called Bend the Arc, a Soros-backed left-wing group. “Resist and win” is their official motto, right on their website.
They’re not involved in Jewish schools or hospitals or pro-Israel activism.
(PS: Charity Navigator only gives Bend the Arc two out of four stars for financial probity, ethics, and the like. Funny how that didn’t make all these MSM stories, either...)
Bend the Arc is a Jewish club of Democrats, playing the Jewish card as some political stunt.
And it’s working.
Other liberal Jews, more liberal than Jewish, piled on, including here in Canada.
Expect a lot more of this in the next week or so...
NEXT: I talk about Trudeau's plans to welcome back returning ISIS fighters, with security expert T. Lee Humphrey.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
