For those that have been under a rock the past 24 hours, yesterday we saw the deadliest antisemitic attack in the nation of our history. A truly disturbing seen out of Pittsburgh, where 11 people were killed inside a Synagogue.
Antisemitism has been on the rise in this country since the age of Trump. In the Spring of 2017, there were constant reports of graffiti and attacks against Jewish people. As matter of fact it got so bad in March of 2017 that it even reached Trump’s ear:
Pennsylvania’s Attorney General, Josh Shapiro, said that he had spoken to the President about a wave of threats to Jewish community centres. And Mr Trump said that they had been designed to make “others look bad”.
Trump dismissed warnings as some false flag. But this shouldn’t be of shock to anyone. Everything Trump says is somehow about him. That’s what his statement back in March 2017 was about. He thought people were doing this to make him and his supporters “look bad”. Well Mr. Trump, I believe there are dozens of mourning families in Pennsylvania today that would disagree.
