Trump too afraid of his own base to denounce antisemitism

The thread header says it all. But if you missed the story, read about it here.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/16/opinion/donald-trumps-answer-to-anti-semitism-you-dont-want-to-know.html?mabReward=R3&recp=0&version=readinglist&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=c-column-middle-span-regionŽion=c-column-middle-span-region&WT.nav=c-column-middle-span-region

Defensive. Guilty. Scared. Trump knows that all that stands between him and impeachment is the David Dukes wing of his party. A bunch of racist, violent sobs who enjoy a fun night out burning crosses and bombing mosques---and synagogues. His base lumps Jewish Americans right in there with all the other "non Aryans." And while they will come for the Muslims first and then the Latinos, they will get around to Jews sooner or later.

Under Sessions, no home grown antisemitism spouting terrorist will ever be prosecuted---because that terrorist votes for Trump. And so, Trump acted with fear and outrage over the easiest of questions: what is his administration's stand on anti-Jewish violence.

The correct answer, the easy answer was "I'm against it."

The fact that Trump could not say it tells us a lot. it tells us how absolutely pissing in his pants scared he is of losing even a single Neo Nazi vote. And maybe the approval of Bannon.

Note to Trump. BAndit kings are not ruled by fear. You are no Reagan. Hell you aren't even W. You are pathetic.

2. Curious question. If he ever gets to the point of rounding up

the Jewish people what do you think he will do with his son-in-law?

3. AND his daughter. She converted. Their children/Trump's grandchildren are Jewish too.

4. The KKK is more important to Donald

Than his grandkids.
