A Washington, D.C. city council member posted a video to his Facebook on Friday in which he purported Jewish bankers were responsible for controlling the weather.
District councilmember Trayon White Sr. reacted to a brief snowfall in the district Friday with anti-Semitic rhetoric, posting a video to his social media page where he warned D.C. residents to look out for climate manipulators, like the Rothschilds’.
“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” White said in the video. “And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, an 18th century Jewish banker, made the family an international banking success. At one point in the 19th century, the Rothschild’s were the single richest family in the world.
Their success has put them at the heart of many conspiracy theories, and the family has often been the target of anti-Semitism.
White is referencing one of the conspiracy theories in the video. The theory is that the family manipulates world events for their own private gain.
