Series of antisemitic tweets claim that Kushner is manipulating Trump and leading the United States into war for Israels benefit.
Antisemitic invective against Jared Kushner has shot up recently, according to a report by the Anti-Defamation League.
The ADL report, published Monday, documents a series of antisemitic tweets from white supremacists directed at Kushner, an Orthodox Jew and President Donald Trumps senior adviser and son-in-law. The tweets, sent by leading antisemites like David Duke and Richard Spencer, claim that Kushner is manipulating Trump and leading the United States into war for Israels benefit.
#FireKushner No one voted for Kushner, Spencer tweeted on April 7. Indeed, many of us voted against people like Kushner having power. On Saturday, Duke tweeted, We are being brought down from within. ZIO [Zionist] Supremacists are the true enemy of the American people not Assad, not Putin. #FireKushner
Shameful #antiSemites such as #DavidDuke & #RichardSpencer are using #FireKushner to circulate Jewish conspiracies: https://t.co/W2SQWtSjuB pic.twitter.com/MyRKIOwGVq ADL (@ADL_National) April 10, 2017
This campaign of anti-Semitism has been driven by white supremacists and anti-Semites and has all the hallmarks of classic Jewish conspiracy theories, the ADL wrote in a blog post.
The tweets come in the context of a feud in the White House between Kushner and Stephen Bannon, Trumps populist chief strategist who used to run the site Breitbart News, which he called the platform for the alt-right. As Kushners stock has apparently risen in the White House, white supremacists have responded in a number of ways from claiming Kushner is a front man for Trumps white nationalist views to smearing him as a nefarious adviser who controls Trump.
An ADL report in October found that more than 2.6 million tweets containing language frequently found in antisemitic speech were posted across Twitter between August 2015 and July 2016.
Kushner is the husband of Ivanka Trump, the presidents daughter. She converted to Judaism before the couple married in 2009.
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Donald Trump, both antisemitic and the Jew's puppet.
I’m always so amazed at how much some folks THINK they know about Israel...especially when they never visited the country. It’s not so far away and I believe that every Christian, Jew and Muslim OUGHT to visit the Holy Land.
Alex, What is “Something I have noticed”?
These types always latch on to the “Head Jew”. I didn’t realize he was Jewish until he showed up on the usual radars.
He just doesn’t seem all that Jewish to me—
The ADL has as much credibility as its mini-me the SPLC.
My problem with Jarred has notthing to do with being one of God’s chosen people and everything to do with his liberalism. Being pro Isreal is a huge plus but he is influencing the betrayal of the base that voted for Trump in favor of people who hate him with a passion....just stupid to have your family in the White House with you....that is a disaster waiting to happen then there is no way to distance yourself from that scandal that comes and they are trying to create one very hard. Why even go there that visibly???
Nobody voted for Valerie Jarrett CZAR titles under Obama.
Intelligence is being brought back to the White House under President Trump. It will come in all forms and there WILL be disagreements which is NORMAL. How can anyone arrive at the best solution to a problem if there is only a one sided contribution? General Patton said it best: “If everybody is thinking the same thing, somebody isn’t thinking.”
Anti semitism is an indication of the stupidity of the antisemite.
I personally prefer Jewish people to any others.
With all the antisemitism coming from the left all they can point out is a couple of tweets from long discredited nut cases? It looks to me like the ADL is just trying to paint any criticism of the establishmentarian policies Kushner is pushing as antisemitism.
Comments from white supremacists?? Really, try Nation of Islam and the Black Lies Matter crowd. Try Islam in general, to get an idea of the scope—3 billion worldwide Muslims versus a few hundred.
Sorta a Schroedinger's President, aye?
“I personally prefer Jewish people to any others.”
I’m a Jew and I disagree. Jews in the U.S. are overwhelmingly secular progressive/leftist who vote in a self-defeating manner. I dislike being around them.
I agree. How can President Trump consider the views of ALL the PEOPLE if he doesn't have advice from ALL the people, including liberals.
He is PRESIDENT of ALL the people.
Jared Kushner is a Big-Government Neo-Con. Being Jewish doesn’t exempt him from criticism, and criticism of his positions is not anti-semitism.
I don’t align myself with the subjects of this article, but “Zionism” does not equal “Jewish”.
Antisemitism is a real and growing problem.
Think it’s bad here? Go to any other country, and you’ll
find it’s so thick you can cut it with a knife.
Kissinger is a German Jew who fled the Nazis.His blurb for Time about the Prince is hilarious.
Yeah..the wordsmith threw shade.
Jared got a degree . Ran a business. Married ivanka.
Then he threw in an Icarus reference
Well the White Guy Defense League says it is perfectly OK to criticize Globalist Policy even if the person supporting it is Jewish, so take that!
The Internal memo from preibus may be fake..but the gist of it wouldnt surprise me.
Waiting today to see if it leaks out that staff must greet him as Secretary Kushner as outlined in the supposed memo
