Even though he is fanatically pro-Israel, Donald Trump’s opposition to illegal immigration has turned the entire Republican Party’s Jewish lobby against him, an article in the Jewish Daily Forward newspaper has revealed.
The article, titled “Donald Trump’s Rise Sparks Widespread Angst among Jewish Republicans,” reports on a meeting of the “Republican Jewish Committee” (RJC), which it described as the party’s “big donors and high-powered operatives.”
It says that a poll was taken in the room to “make sure they had someone supporting each potential Republican nominee”—in effect saying they were making sure that each of the Republican party nominees were sufficiently in line with their Jewish agenda, and that their money would be spread evenly so that no matter who won, one of “their people” would always be the winner.
As the article continued:
Jeb Bush backers were easy to find. Supporters of Marco Rubio, too, were plentiful. Ted Cruz had friends there, as did Scott Walker, and even George Pataki and Lindsey Graham. The Republican Jewish elite have spread themselves wide across the GOP firmament.
However, it became apparent that Donald Trump is, as the Forward reported, “a different story,” and had no backers at the meeting at all. As the Forward admitted:
What is clear is that, despite his surge in the polls, the anti-immigration hard-liner has strikingly little support among prominent Republican Jewish donors, activists, and consultants.
The reason for total absence of Jewish support for Trump is based purely on his opposition to illegal immigration, which the Jews see as “white racism.” As the Forward said:
“In order for us to become a party [of anyone] other than white men, we need to be reaching out,” Norm Coleman, a former senator from Minnesota, told the Forward.
The Jewish newspaper then said that following Mitt Romney’s defeat in 2012, RJC board member Ari Fleischer—a former White House spokesman and Israeli citizen—and other “major party figures” collaborated on a report to the Republican National Committee.
That report, the Forward said, argued that the Republican Party “needed to reach out to growing ethnic minority groups, particularly Hispanics.”
Trump’s opposition to illegal immigration, and even his recent opposition to the “Black Lives Matter” scam (in a tweet in which he detailed that the majority of blacks killed are murdered by other blacks) is, in terms of the RJC’s Coleman, “a long-term negative in terms of building the party.”
Another leading RJC Jew, Nathan Wurtzel, who is a Republican political consultant, went even further and told the Forward that there “are a lot of folks who are, to be charitable, into white identity politics, and to be uncharitable are outright racists, who are supporting Trump. It’s very off-putting and disturbing.”
The Jewish hatred—and fear—of Trump comes in spite of his fanatical support for Israel, which the Forward readily admitted:
Republican Jewish elites see Trump as a hawkish supporter of Israel, like nearly all other members of the Republican primary field. In a September 3 interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Trump said he would support unilateral action by Israel against Iran, and called Benjamin Netanyahu “a friend.”
The Forward goes on to state exactly why the Jewish lobby opposes Trump:
Instead, Trump is seen as a threat to the vision of a bigger, more inclusive GOP, which many leading Republican Jews have advocated.
In other words, being pro-Israel is not enough to secure Jewish support in a US presidential race: a candidate has to be pro-illegal immigration, and wish to see the concept of white America destroyed as well.
Of course, all these Jews support Israel, which has the exact same policies that Trump supports for America—a wall, and the halting and reversal of illegal immigration. But they only support that policy in the Jewish state, and demand the very opposite for European nations.
* Jeb Bush, the would-be Republican candidate most favored by the RJC, has just appointed a “Jewish Leadership Committee” to generate support among the Jewish lobby.
According to the Jewish Algemeiner newspaper, its leading members include former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, erstwhile US Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, infamous Jewish necon Josh Bolten, and Scott Arogeti, the liaison to the Jewish community for the George W. Bush administration.
