• Progressive Anti-Semitism: Yes, It’s Real … and It’s Growing

    Surge Summary: Anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiment has been growing within the ranks of progressivism for some time now – and has broken out openly in recent days. A number of Leftist athletes, celebrities and politicians have traded in openly anti-Semitic statements. Where is necessary denunciation from Democratic leaders?

    We’ve been warning for quite some time that there is not only growing anti-Israel sentiment on the progressive left, which is the rising force in the Democrat Party, but also rising anti-Semitism on the progressive left.

    It riddled the Sanders campaign.  Multiple examples of raw anti-Semitism were exposed among his staff.  Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Talib and AOC have Democrats shaking in their boots because they are the future of the Democrat Party, and they are staunchly anti-Israel.

    We have also seen growing anti-Semitism in the Black Lives Matter movement.  When Ferguson erupted after the shooting of Michael Brown, it didn’t take long before the crowd was chanting anti-police, anti-American and anti-Israel slogans.  They tried to link the plight of minorities in America to the plight of Palestinians in Gaza.

    It has also been disturbing to see an epidemic of anti-Semitism among prominent black entertainers.

    For example, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson made headlines recently for posting quotes attributed to Adolf Hitler and rabid anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

    Former San Antonio Spurs star Stephen Jackson defended DeSean Jackson for “speaking the truth.”

    Rapper Ice Cube tweeted out a series of anti-Semitic images recently.  Now he’s attacking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for daring to condemn his blatant prejudice.

    TV host Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS after a recent interview with another well-known anti-Semite, rapper Professor Griff.  Cannon seemingly embraced a series of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, including the idea that blacks are the real Semites.

    Cannon also said that whites and Jews were “closer to animals, they’re the ones that are actually the true savages.”

    After ViacomCBS fired Cannon, popular black radio show host Charlamagne Tha God said that Cannon’s firing proved that the Jews “have the power.”

    Where’s the Anti-Defamation League?

    Where is Senator Schumer?

    Where is Speaker Pelosi?

    Where is Joe Biden?
