What is fueling Antisemitism?

Far-right extremists who have taken over the GOP rely on fear and division to maintain power. They use antisemitism to fuel that fear and division, putting Jews and our neighbors in danger. The danger is real: Donald Trump’s presidency coincided with an uptick in hate crimes and violence, including the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history.

It isn’t just Trump. As 61% of American Jews know, antisemitism is a problem in the Republican Party. To fight it, we have to understand how antisemitism — along with racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia — is part of the machinery of division and fear, and learn to recognize when right-wing extremists use that machine for political and material gain.


  1. Right, because it's the Republicans who have been attacking Israel, calling for BDS, calling for ending weapon sales to Israel, implying Jews are rich, burning Israeli flags at their rallies...
    Oh wait, those are the Democrats.

    What Nonsense
    The GOP, was very pro Israel, they moved the embassy to Jerusalem, and recognized it as the Capital of Israel. This is consonant with the Rambam, who says yemei hamashiach is differentiated from galus, only by Shibbud Malchius.
    What is shibbud malchius? it is when goyim, foreign powers want to dominate the jews, subjugate them, not allow then freedom of worship or halacha. Halacha states , for example that we rise up and kill a pursuer/rodeif.

    Thsi is what happened in Israel vs Gaza, and the jerusalem riots.
    Who complained, who attacked the jews? It was the left, the squad, and their jihadi voters.

  3. Wow!
    that is your definition of not being an antisemite!
    So Trump could not have ever said anything against Jews - but he did!
    But some of Hitler's best friends were Jews so he obviously wasn't an Anti-Semite.

    What did he say? About loyalty to Israel vs democrats?
    The man is entitled to campaign for votes.

  5. Yes What did he say that upset you?

  6. I am not too upset , he said that jews should vote for GOP becasue they are pro Israel, whereas the Dems have the destructive squad and Saunders amongst them.
    I believe this was previously discussed on here, and my position hasn't changed - the Dems court the minorities, blacks, muslims, Hispanics,LGBTQs, illegals etc to get their votes. So why can't the GOP court certain interest groups too?

  7. Yes be the party of the KKK, neo Nazis, Proud boys and Q, and white supremacists all obviously victim of the elite and the media which is biased against them! Together with Greene as next president they will return America to its true roots and succeed in successfully capturing the Capitol.
