President Trump the Real Anti-Semite? Nice Try, Debbie

In a large dose of political delusion, Florida fixture Debbie Wasserman Schultz has come forward to declare President Trump the man to blame for the country’s recent spate of anti-Semitism.

Yes. it's all the president's fault.

"He is the worst perpetrator of purveying anti-Semitism,” she recently said. 

A desperate attempt at deflection for the Weston congresswoman.

The Democratic Party has had a tough go of things since it took over the House of Representatives. In just two months in power Dems have had a number of freshman representatives caught up in verbal controversies, most involving anti-Semitic remarks. As a body with the stated aim of combating President Trump, they've been noticeably stalled in that mission by the need to address their internal issues.

The Democratic leadership first had to deal with critical questions involving Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and even occasionally Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being granted committee appointments. Then the Women’s March, which the Democratic Party has pledged alliance with in the past, fractured as a result of mounting anti-Semitism exposed among its leadership. Most recently, the House Dems had to call a resolution to directly address the continuing comments from Omar -- only to then neuter the resolution and become incapable of even naming her in the condemnation.

Following that inactivity over the weekend, the president addressed a group of RNC donors at Mar-a-Lago. In the speech he was reported to have said to the group (it was a media blackout event), “The Democrats hate Jewish people.” Trump also speculated about how popular he was in Israel, and wondered why any Jewish voters would back a Democratic candidate.

In response to these reported comments, former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz lashed out. She declared that President Trump “has repeatedly and intentionally” been the source of anti-Semitic remarks, and even stated:

"He is a hypocrite. He has perpetuated anti-Semitism himself, and now what he is doing is even worse. He is, instead of trying to use the platform that he has to heal the situation and calm the waters and bring people together, he’s dangerously weaponizing anti-Semitism as a political bludgeon, and that jeopardizes Jewish lives."

Wasserman Schultz did provide some examples of her charge, yet they defy her own words. "The president continues to use dog whistles and train whistles to perpetuate anti-Semitism,” was her claim, and then rattled off her proof. She cited examples of things spoken during his presidential campaign -- interpreted words from three years ago to somehow show how he “continues” to do this.

She also invoked the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, attributing that to the president. But she displays some abject ignorance on the matter. Robert Bowers, the murderer who shot up the Tree of Life synagogue despised President Trump. He declared that part of his rationale for the shooting was that he viewed the president as too sympathetic to Israel, and he felt the need to take action.  

A curiosity in Wasserman Schultz's current outrage is that she has already acknowledged the anti-Semitism problem within her own ranks. Back in January she voiced her disapproval of the Women’s March leadership, making the announcement she would avoid the formal gathering. Then, with repeated anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks by a number of members from her own party, she develops a blindspot.

Instead, she levels the charge of intolerance towards Jews at the president, who has immediate family members who are Jewish, has worked in tandem with the state of Israel, and has repeatedly stood in support of those of the Hebrew faith. The striving to avoid accountability within Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s own party is stark, and it will do little to alleviate responsibility where it rests.

Count on Debbie to continue mouthing the same party platitudes, this from the woman kicked out of the DNC chair for cheating. The Democrats have an ever growing anti semitism problem but refuse to deal with it.

If the Dems just keep up the out and out lying and name calling with no evidence to back up just about everything they say about this president, not one of them will have a chance in 2020. People don't forget when they are being played daily. What they are saying about Trump as President is laughable. I'm hoping people have stopped buying into the Dem's diversion and defection tactics. They are so obvious now after creating this pattern of misstating facts in the hopes people won't check other sources to get at the truth. Keep it up, Debbie. We all enjoy a good laugh.

Trump is just trash ... all around. He has no redeeming qualities as either a man or as president. Consequently, whether he's anti-Muslim, anti-semitic, anti-African-American, anti-Constitution, or anti-democracy ... is pretty much irrelevant. He's just trash.

It would be nice to have policy issues that identify how the President is trash; how actions/inaction of the administration undermine any single group; and not just broad insinuations about the man or the administration. Attack on the person is NOT the way to make a point. Especially when everyone throwing stones live in glass houses.

I say he could kick your *** 6 ways to Sunday

I find that the Democratic leadership is focused on climate change, political corruption, and the cost of medical care in this country. I refuse to be distracted by rhetoric. It is a breath of fresh air to hear my concerns being voiced by these brave young people. Not quiet the same old, same old, old, old, old, old, old......................

There she goes again. Open mouth, insert foot. Add in a few more Pinocchio's for her. And what a hypocrite to boot. Was Debbie Whats-her-name on holiday when The Donald announced we were moving our Embassy to Jerusalem? Even Bibi Netanyahu would admit Trump has been better for the Jews/Israel than she has been. These pompous yet naïve Democrats have been played for chumps by their own party which is now influenced by the anti-Semitic progressive socialist wing. Wonder why so many view her as having ZERO credibility? .Not to mention her self-aggrandizing agenda trying to make her look relevant. I mean what new information beyond what the intense media coverage at the Venezuela - Columbian border photo op was accomplished this weekend? Save taxpayer dollars and forego these publicity junkets, please!

Netanyahu was recently indicted for bribery and fraud ... and like Trump ... he's no one to hold up as a shining example of a man or a politician. Both he and Trump and their autocratic bombast will be thrown out on their ears in their next elections.

Give it up "VoteDumb2020": your rants are always frantic "screaming into the wind" attempts at "rationalizing cover" for your emasculated Dem Party... (So sad).

As we speak,.. Debbie and that other (too ugly even for Bill Clinton Congressional Representative), "Shanana", are "holding hands, while looking through the fence" at the Venezuelan Border, lamenting their own weak positions in their own Empty, Democrat, Liberal, Socialist, Congressional House Seats. (Which proves that "public political plays" often only serve as frustrating "comic relief" to "media attempts" by useless politicians...
