Pope Francis Ties Rise in Antisemitism to Growth of Populism
Breitbart ^ | 1/20/20 | Thomas Williams

Posted on 01/21/2020 5:48:58 PM PST by marshmallow

ROME — Pope Francis said Monday selfishness leads to populism, which in turn gives rise to antisemitism.

Addressing a delegation from the Simon Wiesenthal Center in the Vatican, the pontiff offered a systematic, “connect-the-dots” thought experiment tying selfishness to anger, anger to populism, populism to hatred, and hatred to antisemitism.

“The rise of a selfish indifference in many parts of the world is worrisome, by which people are only interested in what makes them comfortable: life is good if it is good for me and when something goes wrong, it unleashes anger and malice,” the pope began.

“This is the fertile ground for the particularisms and populisms that we see around us. Hatred is growing rapidly in this soil. Hatred. Sow hatred,” he continued.

“Once again we have witnessed the barbaric upsurge of antisemitism recently,” he concluded.

The pope’s analysis of the root causes of antisemitism came just a day after the Italy’s most popular politician, Matteo Salvini, offered a completely different — and less politically correct — answer to the same question.

In an interview with Israel Hayom Sunday, Salvini said the recent surge in antisemitism in Europe is primarily due to the mass immigration of Muslims on the continent.

“I think that it has to do with the strengthening of Islamic extremism and fanaticism in the last years,” Salvini said. “Most importantly it is connected to the fact that some academics and media are mobilized against Israel and they create hate of Israel to justify antisemitism.”

Frankie says a lot of things that just aren’t true.

And it isn’t that he doesn’t know any better, but because of his satanic agenda.

And here I thought the rise in anti-Semitism had something to do with all of the muslims coming to Europe. I guess I’m stupid. /sarc

Didn’t Hitler start out by singling out certain religion affiliated Jews?
What’s so different in Bergoglio making a show of agitating for Trouble, constantly implicating Conservatives and Traditional Catholic faithful, as the Cause of all ills?

Who benefits from his incitement of the worldwide secular masses and Soros atheists?

Having been on the receiving end my whole life, I can tell this pope that it’s neither recent nor tied to populism, unless Northam and Trudeau were the ones screaming ‘YOU A DEBIL!’ an inch away from my face back in ‘92, or following me home from the subway shouting “Heil you-know-who” at night. His entire paradigm is messed up. I suspect that he’s far from infallible. The barbaric face of antisemitism has long been that of demagogic black preachers and politicians, although there are whites who are into it, too. The fact that white liberals are in denial of this obvious fact enables it to continue.

Frankie’s allies on the radical Left are the most anti-Semitic people to walk the planet since Der Fuhrer assumed room temperature.

The socialist doesn’t see the connection between socialism and antisemitism.
