"We entered the synagogue, which was packed with the greatest stinking
bunch of humanity I have ever seen. When we got about halfway up, the
head Rabbi, who was dressed in a fur hat similar to that worn by
Henry VIII of England and in a surplice heavily embroidered and very
filthy, came down and met the General (Eisenhower)...The smell was so
terrible that I almost fainted and actually about three hours later
lost my lunch as the result remembering it."

Being a competent general didn't preclude Patton from also being an
idiot in his personal attitudes, he paid for it dearly during his
military career.

Was Patton speaking ill of Jewish people, or simply stating the fact, that as
Jews left the concentration camp, they weren't exactly staying at 4 star Hotels
and getting baths and pedicures?

What is the point of this article? If you hate Jews, then, you must be a
Democrat.

Why Liberals Are Anti-Semitic: Democrats Have Become The Party of Jew Haters

The widening all-out war between Israel and Hamas has exposed the dark
underbelly of the Democrats. They are the party of anti-Semitism.

Most progressive Democrats are not only anti-Israel, but deeply anti-Semitic.
As Hamas and Islamic Jihad rain rockets and missiles on civilian areas across
Israel, the Democratic Left has openly done something once thought unthinkable:
embrace Palestinian terrorism.

The Antisemitism Crisis in the Democratic Party

The Democratic Party has been overtaken by an antisemitism crisis, a process of

principal proponents, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar,
personify three components - socialism, Palestinianism, and Islamism - given
impunity by the concept of "intersectionality."

https://www.jpost.com/us-elections/american-jews-vote-overwhelmingly-for-biden-with-56-point-margin-poll-647964

A GBAO poll commissioned by J Street found that Jewish voters voted for
nominee Joe
Biden with a 56 percentage point margin over President Donald Trump in the
US 2020
presidential election.

Some 77% of Jewish voters voted for Biden, compared to 21% who cast their
votes
for Trump, according to the poll. This is the worst presidential election
performance by Republicans among the Jewish community since 2008,
according to J Street.

In congressional races, American Jews supported Democratic candidates by a
similar
margin – 78% to 21%.

Trump Bandies About Antisemitic Tropes In Interview With Israeli Reporter

Former President Donald Trump made a jaw-dropping series of antisemitic
claims
about Jewish Americans controlling institutions of government and media in
a new
interview where he said evangelical Americans “love Israel more than the
Jews in
this country.”

“It used to be Israel had absolute power over Congress, and today I think
it’s the
exact opposite,” he said.

However, Trump’s comments echo claims made in 2019, when, as president, he
said Jews who vote for Democrats show “great disloyalty” to Israel. He earned
criticism at the time from a Jewish advocacy group that said it was “a
form of
anti-Semitism” to suggest that Jewish Americans are not full Americans.

“Unholy” host Jonathan Freedland said Trump’s comments were rife with “classic
anti-Semitic tropes” and “a whole lot of negative stereotypes about Jews.”

“This is the guy who, after white supremacists went on the march in
Charlottesville,
said there were ‘very fine people on both sides,’” Freedland said.

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt summed it up neatly, saying on
CNN Trump’s comments “fall somewhere between stunning and stupid.”

Among the many posts being unearthed amid renewed scrutiny of Marjorie Taylor
Greene’s social media history is one in which the new congresswoman implicated
“Rothschild Inc” in connection with a deadly forest fire that, she wrote, was
started using laser beams from space.

Greene has expressed overt and more subtle antisemitic theories over time.
In 2018 she shared a video, also on Facebook, that lambasted “Zionist
supremacists” and advanced the “great replacement” theory, which falsely
alleges that Jews are conspiring to undermine white-majority countries by
bringing in non-white immigrants.

Florida Pastor and founder of the TruNews YouTube channel Rick Wiles
called efforts to
impeach President Donald Trump part of a “Jew coup.”

In a Nov. 21 video, Wiles said, “That’s the way the Jews work. They are
deceivers. They plot.
They lie. They do whatever they’ve have to do to accomplish their
political agenda. This
impeach Trump movement is part of a Jew coup, and the American people
better wake up to
it fast.”

REPUBLICAN SENATE CANDIDATE, WHO HAS CALLED
FOR COUNTRY "FREE FROM JEWS"
4/28/18

Little has said he believes Jews should have no say over white non-Jews
and wants to see
them removed from the country altogether. On Gab, a social media site with
large swaths of
extremist users, he argues that the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer, whose
proprietors
praise Adolf Hitler and have appeared to call for acts of violence against
Jewish people, is
too Jewish.

"I propose a government that makes counter-semitism central to all aims of
the state,"
he wrote on that website, referring to a white nationalist euphemism for a
hatred of Jews.
He argued for forbidding "all immigration except of biological kin, where
no person of Jewish
origin may live, vacation or traverse."

A Holocaust denier who praises Adolf Hitler and aims to "remove the Jews
from power" is
running as a Republican for a U.S. Senate seat out of California — and a
recent poll found
him in second place trailing only incumbent Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.



https://forward.com/fast-forward/405235/jews-must-be-stopped-california-
gop-congressional-candidate-robocall/

Robocalls in support of California congressional candidate John Fitzgerald
assert that Jews are taking over the world and ‘must be stopped.’

Robert Gammon, business development director for Telegraph Media, tweeted
Tuesday that he received one of the calls from Fitzgerald, the GOP
candidate for the 11th district. He said it was “easily the most racist
political ad I’ve ever come across in the Bay Area.”

Fitzgerald openly denies the Holocaust. His campaign website includes
false claims
that 9% of U.S. government officials are dual citizens of Israel and that Jews
played a “prominent role” in the African slave trade, and celebrates a
“courageous”
elderly German woman who was sentenced to two years in prison for denying the
Holocaust.

“Why is the holocaust the ONLY historical issue that cannot be questioned
without
fear of fines and/or imprisonment in eighteen countries – and counting –
throughout the world?” Fitzgerald wrote on May 16.
