To say someone, i.e. Rep. Adam Schiff, is “shifty” is anti semetic? So says Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and other members of her “squad”.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded to President Trump who posted a video showing Lyin’ Shifty Schiff aka Adam Schiff as pinocchio. With each “lie” Adam Schiff’s “nose” gets longer and longer.
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused President Donald Trump of antisemitism for mocking Rep. Adam Schiff.
Ocasio-Cortez made the claim while linking to an Intercept article in which the author accused the president of antisemitism for calling the freshman lawmaker and her “squad” (who are not Jewish), Rep. Jerry Nadler, and Schiff “Do Nothing Democrat Savages.”
The article also claims that the nickname “shifty Schiff,” given to him by President Trump following his massive lies involving the Ukranian phone call “whistleblower,” is an antisemitic attack.
“Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism towards Chairman Schiff. Then ask yourself why no one cares to denounce it – esp when his accusation of it towards others drove full news cycles earlier this year,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“It’s wrong. It’s harmful. And his bigotry is reflective of the white supremacist base he relies on for political gain,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
The article claims that “the stereotype of Jews as ‘shifty,’ the suggestion that they are sneaky and manipulative, has a long and ignominious history. Trump — who ‘often plays on well-worn caricatures about cleverness, deviousness, and physical weakness’ when discussing Jews, to quote Peter Beinart — knows what he is doing when he gives Schiff this particular nickname; it is no accident or coincidence.”
The accusation is part of a clear trend in which Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the Democrat Party attack President Trump relentlessly and then cry victim when he responds. It’s reminiscent of Twitter trolls who tweet terrible things at you for days and then cry bullying when you’ve finally had enough and respond.
President Trump’s daughter, who he works closely with in the White House, is Jewish, as are his grandchildren. He has been called the most “pro-Israel president ever” by many.
Firenze Sage Another cogent argument from college educated kindergartners.
