You had to know that Donald Trump’s dynamite new campaign ad would set off a cavalcade of exploding liberal heads but one website in particular has played the anti-Semite card in response. The “Argument for America” ad is a powerful shot at the corrupt forces that have hijacked this once great county including top Hillary backer Goldman Sachs as well as the Federal Reserve.
It is one of the best political ads ever made and appeals to Americans to pry the scaly claws of the vampires from their necks. The theme is one of a positive nature and when it airs in key states over the next two days could serve to further energize folks to vote for Trump.
So of course must be full of subliminal messages that Trump hates Jews.
According to Talking Points Memo “Trump Rolls Out Anti-Semitic Closing Ad”:
From a technical and thematic perspective it’s a well made ad. It’s also packed with anti-Semitic dog whistles, anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Semitic vocabulary. I’m not even sure whether it makes sense to call them dog whistles. The four readily identifiable American bad guys in the ad are Hillary Clinton, George Soros (Jewish financier), Janet Yellen (Jewish Fed Chair) and Lloyd Blankfein (Jewish Goldman Sachs CEO).
The Trump narration immediately preceding Soros and Yellin proceeds as follows: “The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. For those who control the levers of power in Washington [start Soros] and for the global [start Yellen] special interests [stop Yellen]. They partner with these people [start Clinton] who don’t have your good in mind.”
For Blankfein: “It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the [start Blankein] pockets of a handful of large corporations [stop Blankfein] and political entities.”
These are standard anti-Semitic themes and storylines, using established anti-Semitic vocabulary lined up with high profile Jews as the only Americans other than Clinton who are apparently relevant to the story. As you can see by my transcription, the Jews come up to punctuate specific key phrases. Soros: “those who control the levers of power in Washington”; Yellen “global special interests”; Blankfein “put money into the pockets of handful of large corporations.”
TPM conveniently leaves out any mention of Hillary sucking up to the Chinese and EU in the Trump ad but that would defeat the purpose of rolling out the heavy artillery. The invocation of anti-Semitism has become the last refuge of scoundrels and is too often used to deflect scrutiny of the Fed which continues to backstop the big banks at the expense of regular Americans and has kept the markets artificially inflated since the big crash of 2008. That is what really irritates the big moneyed interests and Trump’s ad makes it clear that these institutions are able to purchase political influence from whores like Hillary Clinton and our insipid Emperor Barack Obama.
Liberals are also quick to equate critics of globalist sugar daddy George Soros to the Nazis that sent Jews to the showers at Auschwitz because it quickly tamps down what should be deserved scrutiny for a globalist zealot to whom the Democrats are dependent upon for scads of cash. Who knows? Maybe Soros is partially funding Talking Points memo as he is other pro-Clinton propaganda organs.
The flaming leftist Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is promoting the TPM piece:
And in the anticipated cross-pollination into the political mainstream, former Saturday Night Live comic and Democrat Senator Al Franken has also come out and stated that Trump’s ad is chock full of sinister anti-Semitic innuendo during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
The Hill reports “Franken: Trump’s new ad a ‘German Shepherd whistle’”:
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said Sunday that Donald Trump’s final ad, which includes multiple Jewish Americans, is “something of a German Shepherd whistle.”
“Well, when I saw the ad, I thought that this was something of a German shepherd whistle, a dog whistle, to sort of the certain group of the United States,” Franken told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
“I think that it does speak to a certain part of his alt-right base. Bannon, I mean who’s head of Breitbart, is his chairman. They traffic in that,” said Franken.
In a closing pitch to American voters, the Trump campaign released a two-minute ad that showing Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, and George Soros. All three are Jewish.
While Soros, Yellen and Blankfein may indeed be Jewish it’s the institutions that are the ad’s target despite the smokescreen being emitted by liberals.
A side note that should be of some interest when considering the ridiculous ongoing attempts to smear Trump as an anti-Semite and his supporters as neo-Nazis is provided by Haaretz, one of the leading newspapers in Israel which reports that “Top Five Clinton Donors Are Jewish, Campaign Tally Shows”:
A tally of the fundraising for the campaign to elect Hillary Clinton president shows that the top five donors are Jewish.
The Washington Post analysis, posted October 24, named the top donors, who are contributing $1 of every $17 of the over $1 billion amassed for the Democratic nominee’s presidential run.
They are Donald Sussman, a hedge fund manager; J.B. Pritzker, a venture capitalist, and his wife, M.K.; Haim Saban, the Israeli-American entertainment mogul, and his wife, Cheryl; George Soros, another hedge funder and a major backer of liberal causes, and Daniel Abraham, a backer of liberal pro-Israel causes and the founder of SlimFast.
The story relies on information from none other than the virulently anti-Trump Washington Post and I can’t recall anyone wailing that they are anti-Semites for publishing the story pointing out this fact. It would be nice to get Al Franken on the record on that one.
The one thing that liberals are consistent to a fault with is their hypocrisy.
Is the Trump ad anti-Semitic? You be the judge.
