Jared Kushner: President Trump Is Defending Jewish Students

Just saw this but haven't read through completely...so sharing here without comment.

Front 4 paras from this piece:

As the poison of anti-Semitism spreads with dangerous violence throughout Europe, the Middle East, and even here at home — most recently in a horrific attack on Tuesday in Jersey City — President Trump is taking meaningful action to crush this evil.

On Wednesday, the president will sign an executive order to combat the rise of anti-Semitism on American college campuses. As a grandchild of Holocaust survivors, I understand the horrors of anti-Semitism. I could not be more proud of President Trump’s new policy.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, anti-Semitic incidents have been rising in the United States since 2013. Students, in particular, continue to face anti-Semitic harassment in schools and on college campuses.

With Wednesday’s executive order, the president takes crucial action to support and defend Jewish students in the United States. For the first time, a president is making clear that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act’s prohibition against discrimination based on race, color or national origin covers discrimination against Jews.

1. And what Jewish students are under attack?

Or is he defending Israel against activists?

2. Please

One must be hiding under a rock to not know what it is like to be Jewish in many college campuses.

We’re the only group it’s perfectly cool to hate.

4. Not everything is about Trump

There are, sadly, plenty of other evil people in this world.

It's like blaming Hitler for Ho Chi Min's murderous camps. No, they are two independent evils.

5. "President Trump Is Defending Jewish Students"

That was the point of this thread.

In that context, do you really think Trump is interested in defending any non-fascist students?

6. How does declaring Judaism a nationality fix this?

I don't think it does.
