So Donald Trump made a big speech recently, in which he pointed out the completely obvious reality that there are powerful forces in the world who use their control of various important institutions in our societies, to try and influence political decisions in ways that favour them. Even for someone who isn’t a big follower of current affairs, this statement should just simply be common sense, just from looking at the way the world works. Whether it’s starting wars, allowing mass immigration from incompatible cultures, bank bailouts, the implementation of unfair taxes and laws etc., we constantly see establishment politicians making decisions which are the exact opposite of what the majority of their voters want from them. It would make absolutely no sense to make such universally unpopular decisions, unless there were powerful people in control of these politicians, who somehow benefited from these decisions. We’ve heard many terms used to describe these figures: Globalists, Illuminati, the One Percent, etc., but there’s one specific group of people, who were greatly offended by Trump’s speech.
So let’s read what they said.
Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt warned on Twitter Thursday that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump‘s rhetoric was bordering on tropes historically used to ferment hatred of Jews.
In a Thursday speech, Trump argued that Hillary Clinton “meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty,” in order to enrich “global international powers,” an apparent reference to her paid Wall Street speeches. He added that “media enablers [wield] control over this nation through means that are very well known.”
Greenblatt argued in a tweet that the notion that “international bankers” and the media were secretly planning the destruction of America is dangerously close to common anti-Semitic claims.
The speech itself.
Strange really isn’t it. I haven’t watched the full speech myself yet, because of how long it is, but from everything I’ve read up on it, apparently Trump never actually mentioned the word “Jew” at all. He just made vague references to a powerful group of elites who control international finance, establishment politics, and the media, and that they use their power and influence to push forward with agendas which benefit themselves and their inner circles, at the expense of the general population. Agendas such as mass third world immigration to the first world, globalisation, pointless wars, and relentless propaganda campaigns against anything which could be a threat to their goals (such as Brexit and the possibility of a Trump presidency). Yet even though he never once mentioned Jews apparently, the Jewish run ADL is accusing him of anti-Semitism, simply for pointing out the very obvious reality, that there are powerful people conspiring to push unpopular and destructive agendas which benefit themselves only.
If that’s the case, then by saying that these comments about a group of unnamed powerful people is “anti-Semitic” is that not essentially an admission on their part, that these unnamed powerful people are in fact Jews?
I’ll let you ponder that one for a while.
