Trump’s hate speech against Jews and the growing anti-Semitism in the USA

Donald Trump declared Sunday morning that American Jews should “pull themselves together” and give him more support than he currently has in the polls of Jewish voters. Would-be dictator Trump claimed that while he was a staunch ally of Israel during his four-year tenure in the White House. But: “Our wonderful evangelicals appreciate that much more than people of the Jewish faith, especially those who live in the United States.”

That statement, published on his Truth Social platform, ended with a thinly veiled warning that Jews should convert to the Trump camp “before it’s too late!” former US President finding threatening words towards American Jews at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world”.

Trump spoke not only for himself, but also for the fascist elements that now dominate the Republican Party. Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene championed the neo-Nazi “Great Replacement” theory at a pro-Trump rally in Arizona and condemned the Biden administration for alleged plans to “replace” white, Christian Americans with black and black immigrants “.

Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano called his Democratic opponent, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, an elitist who attended a “privileged, exclusive, elite school” and “despises people like us.” The anti-Semitism was clear in this context, since Shapiro is a graduate of the Hebrew Academy in suburban Philadelphia, the Jewish equivalent of a Catholic high school.

These utterances are only the crudest and most overt in a much broader trend. In the 2022 Republican campaign and speeches, Jewish billionaire George Soros will be attacked almost as often as Joe Biden. Soros is a major financial supporter of the Democratic Party and an anti-communist who, in partnership with the US State Department, funded the “color revolutions” in Eastern Europe.

Republican candidates have long used the name of Soros, who escaped the Holocaust in Hungary as a child, to incite anti-Semitic reflexes. Racists who align themselves with the Republican Party understand the keyword “Great Replacement” to mean a Jewish conspiracy with Soros as its main puller. This also served as an occasion for a neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

The rise of anti-Semitism in the United States is not confined to, nor can it be explained solely by, the increasingly fascist policies of the Republican Party. The Democratic Party has participated in redefining American politics and history, bringing the question of “race” to the fore. While Republicans seek to appeal to rural and suburban whites, Democrats seek to rally minority “races” and sections of the white upper-middle class, particularly women and gay men, under the banner of identity politics.

Democrats use every means possible to suppress awareness of the common class interests of working people of all races, nationalities and genders.
