WWill the US tolerate the GOP’s blatant anti-Semitism action?
I ask this question again after hearing former President Trump’s unflinching anti-Semitism on full display in an interview with Israeli journalist Barak Ravid. Here, Trump called obnoxious “double loyalty” jokingly said, “I’ll tell you, Protestants love Israel more than the Jews in this country” and complained that New York Times hates Israel in the breath he says the newspaper is run by Jews. He limits things by reminiscing about a time when “Israel had absolute power over Parliament.”
Trump has previously assured people that he “the least rebellious person you will ever see in your entire life. “ Of course, he also tweeted an image of Hillary Clinton’s face on top of a pile of cash next to the Star of David, “jokingly” that son-in-law Jared Kushner, a Jew, was “more loyal to Israel than to the United States,And complaining that American Jews voting Democrat show “great disloyalty” to Israel.
Maybe it’s just “economic anxiety”? Or maybe Trump’s hateful comments reflect a modern conservative movement that has gradually integrated anti-religious conspiracies to create and inspire violent terrorists targeting Jews. Thai, yes, but also Muslims, immigrants of color and blacks.
We are all “invaders” according to Vicious substitution theory appears almost nightly on Tucker Carlson’s highest-rated Fox News show. without any response from corporate sponsors or media organisations. Elected GOP Officials, such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, who blame the Jews for using space lasers to start wildfiresand Paul Gosar, who is a friend of white nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes, also openly endorsed the theory. It is the foundation of QAnon movement, a national security threat, whose supporters are now running as Republicans.
This is just a lousy remake of the Elders of the Protocols of Zion, a debunked conspiracy that emerged from Russia in the early 20th century and claimed that an international small group of sinister Jews were using their wealth and connections to gain control and undermine Western civilization. In 2021, it’s known as the “deep state,” with Jews reportedly using immigrants of color, Muslims, feminists and LGBTQ groups as their pawn in their plot to gain power. control and undermine Western civilization by displacing whites, especially men, in Europe. and America.
They even updated the bloody smear plot for the modern era. Conservatives affiliated with QAnon believe the libertarians are part of an international sex-trafficking gang that bears the “mark of the beast” and kidnaps, sexually abuses and kills children. When asked if he would reject QAnon, and thus many of his supporters, Trump famously said that he didn’t know enough to do so, adding, “What I heard about it, they were very powerful. against pedophilia.”
And so these conspiracies persist and thrive, radicalize people like Ashili Babbitt, who was at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 pledged to unleash “storm,” a QAnon codeword for violence, before being shot dead by a Capitol police officer. They radicalized the man who brought an automatic weapon to a pizzeria in Washington DC, convinced he would find children kidnapped and enslaved by Hillary Clinton in its basement. What is supposed to be “Great alternative” radicalized the man who shot at a Pittsburgh synagogue, killing 11 people including Holocaust survivors because, he said, the Jews were carrying “invaders”.
Despite all this evidence of blatant anti-Semitism, Republicans have managed to avoid being labeled antisocial despite bathing in it nearly every day despite a plan five simple steps: 1) Rejection, 2) Project, 3) Deviation – the first three steps, which, by the way, lie straight out of Roger Stone’s “rule” of “Admit nothing, deny everything. , launch a counterattack” – 4) Praise Israel, and 5) Attack Ilhan Omar.
These Republicans are closely following Trump’s lead. Recall, Trump also claimed he was the least racist person in the world despite promoting the Birther conspiracy, running a campaign fueled by Islamophobia and anti-Mexican bigotry, telling four congresswomen of color “come back, where are you from” and lament the emergence of black and brown immigrants from “the shithole countries.” Republicans recognize this strategy, often employed by 4-year-olds, of operating as mobs in an overwhelmed and timid media ecosystem where most journalists lack the courage and skills to ability to resist and challenge power. The rare time there’s outrage, you just “flood the area with crap,” as Steve Bannon advises, and the news cycle goes on, unable to keep up with all the insults every day. the day any of which made Barack Obama a term of president.
Second, the GOP perfected the projection where they pivoted and blamed Democrats for all their sins and vile actions. Just last week, GOP Representative Scott Perry, who has been identified as one of the henchmen for Trump’s primary vote, accused Congressman Ilhan Omar of sympathizing with dissidents and terrorists. He did this after the House passed a bill condemning Islamophobia and Representatives Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene proudly doubled down on their anti-Muslim bigotry, which resulted in death threats dead Omar. However, Perry has yet to condemn Gosar for his anti-Semitism behavior or ask Matt Gaetz why he invited a Holocaust denier to attend the State of the Union.
Third, the GOP can deflect criticism of anti-Semitism by claiming that it is only questioning, joking, or speaking out against “Globalists” and “elite” sought to crush ordinary people in the name of “deep nation,” sometimes with a nod toward George Soros. In the same way that “urban crime” means “violent black man” and “welfare queen” means “lazy black woman abusing the system.” When they fail, they say they are being politically incorrect and raise the conundrums necessary to protect our country, its values and its demographics from “those” who seek want us to do harm.
Fourth, Republicans have loudly emerged as the biggest defenders of Israel and accused anyone, including Jews and especially progressives, of criticizing Israel’s policies. against. But in reality, Republicans really like Israel but they are not Jews. In fact, Jews are only used as convenient political and religious pawn to appease their real base, white Protestants, who believe that the Jews must control the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al-Sharif to the Muslims, as one of the necessary preconditions of the Second Coming of the Lord. Unfortunately, Israel has been successfully used as a wedge to split the natural alliances between some Jewish, Muslim and POC communities in the US who need to unite immediately to confront with the rising wave and political power of white supremacists who are coming after us all. , and who use anti-Muslim and anti-Muslim conspiracies to attract recruits for their morbid purposes.
Finally, Republicans rely on the double standards that exist in America’s political, media, and cultural institutions, including far too many Democrats, when it comes to progressive women of color, as Congressman Ilhan Omar has demonstrated. If you doubt this, I recommend playing the game: “What if Ilhan Omar said this?” I will start. What if Ilhan Omar went public calls for the destruction of one of Jerusalem’s holiest places sites, call it a “disgust”? She would be thrown under the bus by Senator Chuck Schumer, who had backed up and ran back.
But that’s exactly what Paul Gosar said last week to Al-Aqsa Mosque, and it wasn’t even headline news. It’s a statement so painful and dangerous, with the potential to incite actual violence, that even the toughest politicians in Israel would never say. Yet here we are, still talking about Omar’s “controversial” tweets, but not saying a word about Gosar, who has yet to be condemned by GOP leadership for it, or the hate tweet. his speech against the AOC, or his keynote speech at a white nationalist convention.
People have turned to Trump’s latest protest because the area is literally swarming with bad things, but our community can’t deny it, laugh it off, see it as a “walk up” ” or complacent. These hate speech, embedded, praised and promoted by our elected officials, are a green light for extremists to “stand and stand” as they prepare to unleash violence against fellow Americans.
The GOP’s anti-Semitism is the fuel for their flames, and silence and indifference make everyone accomplices to one another.
