Media Blame Trump For Synagogue Shootings. Bet You Didn’t See That One Coming.

After a milli-second of reflection, the media reached the shocking and totally unexpected conclusion that the synagogue shooting in Poway, CA. was all Trump’s fault, because:

  • He doesn’t condemn white nationalists every hour on the hour.
  • He says nice things about the NRA and refuses to support ritualistic gun control.
  • He created the proverbial “climate of violence.” Mass murder in America began on Inauguration Day 2017.

On the other hand:

  • The New York Times, the Democratic Party’s house organ, ran a blatantly anti-Semitic cartoon recently.
  • House Democrats blocked any resolution disavowing the rabid anti-Semitism of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and instead passed a meaningless condemnation of all forms of bigotry. How bold and courageous of them.
  • Candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination are rushing to receive the blessings of his sliminess the Rev. Al Sharpton, whose reckless rhetoric sparked a pogrom in Crown Heights, NY in 1991, where a rabbinical student was lynched.
  • At Aretha Franklin’s funeral, former President Bill Clinton shared VIP seating with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who calls Jews “termites” and Judaism a “gutter religion.”

Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein of the Poway Synagogue said President Trump called him following the shootings. The Rabbi told MSNBC that Trump said:

“Look, I’ve got a son-in-law who’s Jewish, I’ve got a daughter who’s Jewish, I’ve got grandkids who are Jewish. I love Israel and I’m going to support Israel and I’m going to do whatever we can to protect the Jewish people of the United States of America and abroad.”

Sounds just like an anti-Semite, doesn’t it?

The mainstream media has gone from being purely partisan to downright delusional.
