Once again, White House responds without mentioning anti-Semitism, Jews, or Jewish centers being targets of violence because they are Jewish.

One time is an omission, but we’ve now seen this act so often that it’s Trump’s strategy. Trump has opened the floodgates to hate - anti-Semitism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, all of it.

And he didn’t make it abundantly clear when he responded at the presser with blatherings about his electoral vote count.

Trump’s final solution started with Muslims, has grown to include the “lying press”, and one does not need much imagination to see where it ends up.

It’s a sort of weird mirror image of the way they repeatedly claimed President Obama refused to ever use any variation of “Islamic” terrorism (even though he did use it, just not as often as they liked). President Obama had a legitimate reason for trying to avoid the term, if possible, which he explained more than once for anyone who was paying attention.

I haven’t heard any similarly reasonable explanation for why the Trump administration is apparently loath to identify Jewish victims as targets. A curious thing that—I could be wrong, but it’s almost as if they don’t want to encourage sympathetic feelings towards Jews, even when they’re the primary victims.

Come to think of it, the same thing was done with “black lives matter.” It was treated as if by mentioning that black lives matter the people were implying only black lives matter, or that black lives matter more than others. It was a very effective slogan that called attention to a real problem in our society. Certain people couldn’t have that, so they quickly began to counter with “all lives matter” and “blue lives matter.”

President Obama wanted to avoid putting innocent Muslims in the crosshairs, and not drive a wedge between them and America. I’m sure Trump is equally concerned about tarring all asshole white supremacists with the same brush.

It’s shows how little Trump cares about Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, African American or Hispanic people. Grudging admissions this must stop after how he treated that Jewish journalist is just npt at all credible or persuasive.
