Jews Fret Trump Candidacy Allowing Marginalized & Demonized Ideas Into Political Discourse
Let’s be perfectly clear up front: Donald Trump is no “anti-Semite,” i.e., someone who openly recognizes the power and influence of the organized Jewish community and their anti-White, nation-wrecking agenda. Trump is also not a “racist,” i.e., someone who affirms the biological reality of race and understands its central importance in history, cultural and economic development, crime statistics, and related matters.
He is, however, allowing people with highly demonized ideas and political perspectives to inject them into mainstream political discourse. This alone has fundamentally altered American politics, hopefully permanently. And the organized Jewish community and leftist political establishment, not to mention the traitors and cuckolds in the GOP and Conservative, Inc., are not at all happy with this development, as I’ve pointed out here in the past.
The Jewish Daily Forward has published yet another article dealing with this subject, quoting a number of prominent Jewish ethnic activists fretting about how their monopoly on mainstream political discourse is being eroded and undermined thanks to Trump’s candidacy.
We’re gonna take our country back, folks,” Donald Trump tells an army of white soldiers as he battles, and ultimately kills, Barack Obama and two prominent American Jews in a clumsy parody of the movie “300.” The clip , which features recordings of actual statements made by Trump and has over half a million views on YouTube, is only one example of the large volume of anti-Semitic content produced by white supremacist Trump supporters.
Through statements and policy proposals tinged with racism — such as advocating a ban on Muslims entering the country, and saying many Mexican immigrants are drug dealers and rapists — Trump has become a favorite of white nationalist groups and provided an unprecedented platform for their views.
While other politicians – notably Pat Buchanan, a Republican presidential candidate in 1992 and 1996 who made statements questioning the scale of the Holocaust – have espoused racist beliefs, none of them are on the same level as Trump in terms of extremist supporters, said Mark Potok, an expert on extremism at the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights advocacy group.
“Donald Trump has electrified the radical right in the United States – they think he is absolutely the cat’s meow. Trump comes closer to representing their own positions than any other politicians in memory,” Potok said. […]
“Donald Trump’s disavowal of David Duke is a day late and a dollar short – it seemed pretty clear that he did not actually want to do it,” Potok said. “Trump is playing a game in which he has worked hard not to too strongly disavow the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who like him so well.”
The denunciation would not affect white nationalist support for Trump, Potok predicted.
“In the white supremacist world, many people have pointed out that he simply has to disavow them to stay in the mainstream at all. They’re not upset in the least,” he said. […]
Trump also refused to distance himself from supporters who had sent anti-Semitic death threats to a Jewish journalist who profiled his wife.
Trump’s lack of disapproval has allowed Duke and white nationalist groups move from the fringes of the political discourse toward the mainstream.
“One of the interesting things is that white supremacist and white nationalist groups have usually been pretty marginalized in our public discourse,” Montgomery said. “Trump’s candidacy has been energizing them and bringing them out of the woodwork.” […]
Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director and CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, was also quoted in the article. “There have been bigots who have run for political office before; however, we have not seen the mainstreaming of this kind of intolerance at this stage in the game in our collective memory,” Greenblatt told the Forward.
Regardless as to what you think of Trump, one thing is certain: he has turned the tables on the political establishment and fundamentally altered the political discourse in America. That is why his candidacy is so important. He has injected so many marginalized ideas into mainstream public discussion, and has opened up space for even more marginalized ideas to gain traction.
At best, Trump is a civic American nationalist who wants to enforce America’s immigration laws, bring back American manufacturing and industrial jobs, and put American interests first when it comes to foreign and trade policy. And that’s fine – it’s certainly a step in the right direction.
Even more importantly, he has thoroughly exposed the corrupt political establishment, challenged the dishonest mainstream mass media (both of which are of course entirely dominated by Jewish interests), and pushed the Overton Window in a direction that favors those of us with “racist” and “anti-Semitic” perspectives. That alone is a revolutionary development, and we should welcome it.
