Some on the Left are attempting to blame Trump and Republicans for the killings last Saturday in Pittsburgh. But the last two Democratic presidents have appeared with notorious anti-Semites:
1. Obama and Rev. Wright: he claimed in 2009 that “Them Jews ain’t going to let him (Obama) talk to me.” Wright then said that he meant to use Zionists not Jews. This is a distinction without a difference. One might argue that this is after Obama broke with Wright in 2008. He claimed that he’d never heard Wright make the incendiary comments which came to light in 2008. But in 2004 he stated to a local Chicago reporter that he was in Wright’s church every Sunday. His claim of ignorance about Wright’s opinions strains credulity.
2. Obama and Clinton have appeared with the notorious Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan:
3. Obama appeared more than once on Al Sharpton’s radio program. Look up Tawana Brawley and the Crown Heights riot for details about Sharpton’s background.
Democrats need to stop associating with these despicable people. Then perhaps they can start talking with Republicans about reprehensible antisemitic violence.
