The enabling of anti-Semitism

CNN logoThe media's hatred for President Donald Trump and his family was on full display late last week when a political commentator on CNN went full anti-Semitic on the president's daughter and son-in-law.

CNN host Jake Tapper and commentator Paul Begala were talking about a book that alleges there's a rift between the president and Jared and Ivanka Kushner. Tapper wondered aloud if that were the case, why had they lasted so long. That's when Begala said this:

Begala: "When you're too mediocre even for Donald Trump, you've really got a problem. And of course, they survived. I mean cockroaches are going to survive nuclear war."

Laurie Cardoza Moore of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations says Begala certainly knew the history of connecting Jews and cockroaches.

"That, unfortunately, comes from a book called Elders of Zion," she offers. "It's the same book that Hitler used to launch his propaganda campaign against the Jews. Who does Paul Begala think he is by using an anti-Semitic trope that Hitler would have used?"

Tapper, to his credit, quickly called Begala out and the commentator walked the comment back. Still, Cardoza Moore argues it was no slip of the tongue.

"It is pathetic that this is what we have come to – that Begala even thinks that he's allowed to make a statement like that," she states.

Combined with the recent anti-Semitic tweets from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D- Minnesota) and others, Cardoza Moore says it's a troubling time. "This is just another example of the anti-Semitism that is becoming more and more pervasive and normalized in our government," she says.
