Trump has an almost superhuman ability to say exactly the wrong thing on camera. It’s uncanny.

I’m not a hypocrite, I stand by my principles. I will admit that I agree with Trump. Readers of this blog know of my seething hatred for Leftist Jews who give credence to the worst antisemites out of intersectional wokeness.
Every time some Lefty Jews stands next to a Palestinian activist and says “I think Israel is an apartheid state/Netanyahu is Hitler/Israel acts like Nazis/etc” what that are doing is giving Jewish support to Jewish genocide. Because as we all learned from Antifa, is that if someone is a Nazi it’s okay to hurt them and all it takes to identify someone as a Nazi is to call them that.
As a Jew, you don’t have to like Israel. You don’t have to go there. You don’t have to agree with the Israeli government on anything.
What you shouldn’t do is legitimize the antisemitic conspiracy theories and accusations leveled at Israel or Jews in general by vicious Jew-haters who only want to destroy Israel and the Jewish people.
If you can’t do that and feel a compelling intersectional justification for Palestinian terrorism, you can very kindly go do an impression of someone who agreed to testify against the Clintons. Because what you are doing is risking the lives of other Jews.
All that said, for Trump to use the word “disloyal” and all the antisemitic baggage that goes with it, was fucking stupid.
What that does is it allows people like Ilhan Omar, and all her of supporters and followers to say “Trump is the real antisemite, Ilhan is just an innocent victim.”

My honest to God opinion is this.
Trump is perhaps the most inelegant President to hold office since the invention of the live broadcast.
But I don’t think he is, deep down, and antisemite. He says stupid shit because he fires off his mouth before he’s fully engaged his brain, but I don’t think he’s a real Jew-hater.
Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and the Woke Left are true, dyed in the wool, antisemites. They hate Jews. You can see it in the way that they manage to blame the Jews for everything.
But that distinction doesn’t matter for people whose deepest thoughts are about as deep as a puddle of piss on a men’s room floor.
Trump said it so now Omar and Tlaib are off the hook for everything they have ever said.
Some on the right might try and accuse the Left of hypocrisy but that is a pointless exercise. Being a hypocrite means having principles and standards and holding others to them while going against those principles and standards yourself. The Left is nothing but hypocrites with double standards because the only core principle they have is the acquisition of power. Holding principles and standards is only useful in hobbling opponents by holding them to said principles.
What the end result of this is, is any headway that could have been made by pointing out the virulent antisemitism of the far Left is gone. Wiped away.
This is, for most people, now just a way to dig at opponents, mainly on the Right. Every Republican is going to be forced into a struggle session to denounce Trump over this and any mention of Omar and Tlaib, who are real threats to Jewish survival, will be dismissed at whataboutism.
We are now in a world where the Progressives can literally shove Jews into gas chambers and all they have to say is “but Trump said this” as a distraction.
This is a fucking shitnado and we’ll be lucky to survive it.
I’m going to buy more ammo.
