The latest violent anti-Semitic attack has already left the news cycle because it didn’t fit the proper narrative the legacy media like to push, but there are still a few shots being taken. You’ll be shocked to learn that they mostly revolve around somehow trying to blame President Trump.
How Trump is responsible for African American violence against Jews in heavily Democrat areas, I’m not sure. But coherence in criticism isn’t much of a requirement these days.
Case in point, the fact that Democrats and their media mouthpieces are calling for Trump to do more against anti-Semitism just a week after they thoroughly trashed him for doing more to condemn and combat anti-Semitism.

Just days before Jews were being stabbed in the Monsey attack, some media outlets were still pushing out op-eds bashing the President for signing an executive order giving Jews the same protections under the law that other minority groups get. In reality, this was simply a continuation of an Obama era policy, yet there were comparisons to Hitler and Stalin, as well as accusations that this was Trump’s attempt to actually harm Jews.
The illogical nature of it all was hard to digest. There are plenty of moments where the criticism of Trump makes no sense, but this was a new level of egregious, stupidly partisan behavior from the media.
He signed an EO protecting Jewish college students, and your squad (naturally) screamed bloody murder. What a joke our media has become. A flaming dumpster fire of utter incoherence. https://t.co/JEclcICXwv

I do think the “this is what the Soviets did to the Jews” psychotic reaction to the antisemitism EO was something of a breaking point. The combination of idiocy and bad faith went to eleven, I don’t think there’s any coming back from it.

Democrats, allied by a media that will do their bidding, are simply trying to pass the buck. The truth is that it’s their intersectional ideology coupled with other policies that’s led to this jump in minority violence against Jews. The Democrat party has always become a home for anti-Semitic movements like BDS and anti-Semitic politicians like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
None of this has anything to do with Donald Trump, who has spent his time doing everything he can to protect Jews and support Israel. The media’s attempts to somehow spin this against him while ignoring the left’s culpability is par for the course though.
