The Left loves to brand anyone they disagree with as racist, sexist, homophobic, or any other insult they can come up with. In the case of President Trump, every one of these accusations has been thrown his way and they show no sign of stopping. Worst of all, he has been branded, with no evidence, of being a closet anti-Semite.
No matter what Trump does, the accusations of his anti-Semitism from the Left keep coming. For example, last week, Trump has shown that his administration may be the most pro-Israel in American history, and he and First Lady Melania showed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife the most respect as they possibly could. On Tuesday, Trump, whose daughter is Jewish, strongly condemned violence against Jewish Community Centers, which have risen over the last few months. Nevertheless, the Anne Frank Center still condemned Trump, basically saying “too little, too late.”
Too little, too late for what? He’s done nothing anti-Semitic, but this is how the Left would operate no matter who the Republican president is.
But as much as the Left would like to accuse Trump and his administration as anti-Semitic, there is one incident that they’ll have a pretty hard time spinning. On Monday, vandals toppled over 100 headstones at the Chesed Shel Emeth Society cemetery in University City, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. During incidents like this, it is usually locals who clean up and repair the damage. But who led the effort here to lead the volunteer effort to clean up the cemetery? None other than Vice President Mike Pence.
Pence gave a speech condemning the vandalism before the cleanup started, stating that the vandalism as “a sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.” He said, “from the heart, there is no place in America for hatred or acts of prejudice or violence or anti-Semitism.” Pence called Missouri’s response to the vandalism “inspiring” while standing next to the state’s first Jewish governor, Eric Greitens.
After the speech, Pence and Greitens listened to a rabbi’s prayer, prayed along with him and then led efforts to repair the damage that the vandals left, along with many local volunteers.
So much for the anti-Semitism charges against the administration. But the Left will keep them coming, because they have no substantive arguments, and there is no sign that they will stop. It’s no wonder the voters don’t believe them anymore.Tags: Donald Trump
