Sixth days of Hanukkah, six anti-Semitic attacks.
Day seven of Hanukkah and another attack that evening in which five Jews were stabbed.
So on the morning of the seventh day of Hanukkah, what did Congressman Eric “Douche Nukem” Swalwell Tweet?
Anti-Semitism is on the rise in America. And it’s being stoked by @realDonaldTrump who won’t condemn it and Trump’s lawyer, @RudyGiuliani, who just this week said he’s “more Jewish than Soros.” ICYMI, my @jdforward op-ed on what we must do: https://t.co/5wVUoVyS5w

Because the spike in antisemitism in NY/NJ was as much Trump’s fault as was the attempted lynching of Jussie Smollett.
Here is what this shit-burger had to say:
FBI data shows hate crimes reached a 16-year high in 2018. Even California, which has some of the strongest hate crime laws in the nation and proudly celebrates diversity and inclusiveness, isn’t immune to this troubling trend. Anti-Jewish hate crimes rose in California by nearly a quarter from 2017 to 2018, even while overall hate crimes in the state remained flat.
Yes, it has.
It should be noted at this time that according to the ADL:
K-12 schools, as well as colleges and universities, continue to be the scenes of significant numbers of anti-Semitic incidents.
California campus anti-Semitism had become so egregious that the University of California board of regents had to address it.
Then there was this:
California Dems propose resolution linking Israeli government to anti-Semitism, Pittsburgh synagogue massacre
So don’t bullshit me that ONLY the Right – or more accurately the alt-right – is responsible for all of the shit going down in California.
This isn’t happening in a vacuum. It’s happening as President Donald Trump and his allies dabble in hate-baiting propaganda. From refusing to unconditionally condemn the 2017 neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville to accusing American Jewish Democrats of disloyalty, President Trump has tacitly or explicitly empowered extremism in ways not seen in generations.
Case in point: the President, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, far-right allies like former Fox News anchor Glenn Beck, and racist Congressman Steve King, for years have relentlessly attacked Jewish philanthropists including Michael Bloomberg and George Soros.
Michael Bloomberg is a nanny state piece of shit who uses his mendacious media empire money to fund Astroturf campaigns to ban trans-fats, sugary drinks, and have their child rhetorical human shields attack law-abiding gun owners and NRA members and demand that our civil rights be abridged.
George Soros is a diabolically evil vulture capitalist who makes billions of dollars increasing misery and suffering around the world, and uses that money to fund equally evil Progressive causes.
Causes such as the election of Attorneys General and prosecutors who refuse to prosecute criminals. AG’s like the NY AG Letitia James who lets people who attack Jews out of jail without bail.
Even Politico called this shit out:
George Soros’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system
Progressives have zeroed in on electing prosecutors as an avenue for criminal justice reform, and the billionaire financier is providing the cash to make it happen.
So when some illegal vagrant in San Francisco steals a gun and shoots and kills a woman on a pier, and the prosecutor does a half-assed job and he gets no prison time, that’s Soros’ fault.
It’s not anti-Semitic to criticize this for the evil that it is.
For Leftists to say “you can’t criticize Progressive Jewish billionaires and their schemes to legalize every crime and criminalize every legal activity, that’s anti-Semitic” is some anti-Semitic bullshit.
Words matter. Hate must not be stoked, lest innocent people die. As a country, we must hold Trump and his minions accountable for their conduct, and we must do more to protect the communities facing the greatest risk.
It starts with toning down the rhetoric, condemning any dog-whistling as dead wrong, and not only remembering but emphasizing that we’re all Americans, even as we navigate the difficult waters of impeachment. Protecting and defending the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, is expressly at odds with letting hate infiltrate our politics.
I will believe that the second you shit-eating, shit-spewing, shit-for-brains, feckless fuck-weasels criticize AOC or Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib or the Women’s March or Linda Sarsour or any of the anti-Semites on the Left.
Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Our nation is more unified, more inclusive, and simply better than what President Trump and Rudy Giuliani would have you believe.
No, it’s not. It was the Democrat George Wallace who said “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” And your side has held fast to that, rebranding it as Social Justice. Or did you forget about creating POC only safe-spaces on college campuses?
We respect and protect our neighbors and we reject prejudice. That’s not a partisan thing to do; it’s the human thing, the right thing to do.
But you couldn’t break from partisanship for one fuck second yourself.
To post this shit to Twitter after a week’s worth of attacks on Jews in New York, none by MAGA supporting right-wingers is nothing but partisan and tone-deaf.
But if the entire Democrat Primary runup to 2020 has proven anything, it’s that partisan and tone-deaf is all the Democrats have.

Each attack this past week has been perpetrated by those of the African persuasion against Jews. Thing is, I don’t think they see Jew.
Hear me out here.
Black criminals have a very, very strong ‘f*ck whitey’ streak (Memphis boy here, don’t tell me that ain’t true), and I seriously doubt they make a distinction between someone white and someone Jewish. We probably look the same to them.
What they *might* see is that Jewish communities tend to do fairly better (more money, better communities, multiple positions of authority, etc), thus elevating them to ‘rich whitey’ status.
So, I believe this is less an attack on Jews and more an attack on Rich Whites, because I don’t think the distinction is made in the first place.
No, there is a vein of very specific hatred of Jews in the American black community.
Idiots like swallwell are parrots bleating the same lies. Blame Trump, blame the gop. America sees thru it. Its getting highly annoying. These attacks are being pushed by dems. All this talk of “inclusive “ is bullshit. The dems luv to divide us. It is funny when they claim whitey is to blame and its POC who are doin the deeds.
Most offensive in this kind of rhetoric is it completely removes agency from the criminals. They’re just animals to Swallwell, just reacting to what Trump is doing. I get the feeling if you confronted Swallwell and others pushing this line with “the attackers chose their actions”, they’d freeze up and not be able to respond with anything but stuttering.
