One of the very first things that CNN host Alisyn Camerota asks Rabbi Jeffery Myers, of the Tree of Life Synagogue where 11 members were massacred over the weekend, is if he blames anyone else other than the gunman for the massacre.
And when he basically answers “no”, Camerota presses him again by asking him if ‘hate can be cultivated’ and ‘what lights the match’ of hate (h/t: TheDC)
Watch (it’s cued up to 38 seconds):
Clearly what Camerota is really asking Myers if he blames Trump for the incident. That seems to be the popular sentiment in the news media this weekend as we’ve demonstrated here.
In fact later on in the interview Camerota asks Myers directly if he wants Trump to come to the Synagogue:
(it’s cued up to 7:00 minutes):
Rabbi Myers says that Trump is always welcome at his synagogue. But note that after Myers says that, Camerota cites a statistic from the ADL that says anti-Semitic attacks have gone up 57% since 2016. Once again, she’s inferring that Trump is to blame.
This is what the press has been doing all weekend as we are now only a week away from the elections. Just this morning I read in the NY Post that a group of Jews are saying that Trump isn’t welcome in Pittsburgh. Other sites, such as The Hill, are calling them “Jewish leaders”. At least the NY Post mentions in the second paragraph that these Jews are from a PROGRESSIVE Jewish group called Bend The Arc. And as you might’ve guessed, they already hate Trump.
Via Ben Shapiro:
So, is Bend The Arc really a group of “Jewish leaders”? Only in name. The group is merely a Leftist political action group with a Jewish label. Their stated mission is “rising up in solidarity with everyone threatened by the Trump agenda to fight for the soul of our nation.” Their missions include the election of “progressive champions” and the implementation of “progressive legislation and policies, like criminal justice reform and economic equity.”
Who runs Bend The Arc? Alexander Soros, George Soros’ son. When he started the PAC, Politico noted, “Soros, who formed his own foundation in 2012 to promote social justice and human rights, has given $1.2 million to Democratic candidates and groups in the last three elections.” (It should be noted here that criticism of the political viewpoint of major Democratic donors is not anti-Semitism; it is normal politics.) The director of Bend The Arc was Hadar Susskind, was formerly a staffer at the anti-Semitic front group J Street, which spends its days attempting to undermine the safety and security of the state of Israel.
So this is who the media would have you believe speaks for most Jews or something. It’s pathetic. When the real news headline, as Shapiro goes on to point out, is that the rabbi of the synagogue where this massacre took place actually welcomes the president with open arms.
