Fact-Checking Two Putative “Victims of Anti-Semitism”

Recent politically charged violence has spawned aggressive efforts to spin public perceptions.

In particular, the Left has promoted the false narrative that the purported pipe-bomb plot and the actual, murderous attack on the Pittsburgh synagogue were basically President Trump’s fault.

Here’s a fact-check:

Billionaire George Soros’ security detail got one of the so-called pipe-bombs and we’re told now he’s a “victim of anti-Semitism.” In fact, for years his funding has promoted hostility towards Israel and enabled the world’s most aggressive anti-Semites: rabid leftists and their Sharia-supremacist allies.

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society was an object of the Pittsburgh shooter’s enmity. But this organization, another putative “victim” of anti-Semitism, has long brought here inadequately vetted and potentially Jew-hating Muslim refugees – and savaged President Trump for opposing such practices.

Political violence is one, unacceptable form of political warfare. Lying for political advantage is another.
