The Democrats like to claim that President Donald Trump is anti-Semitic, which never made any sense due to the fact that his daughter and son-in-law are orthodox Jews. But Trump's truly remarkable and moving speech about the Holocaust on Tuesday should prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the President is anything but anti-Semitic.
Trump gave his speech at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum; he began by honoring the memory of Elie Wiesel, who passed away in July.
"His absence leaves an empty space in our hearts, but his spirit fills this room," Trump said. "It is the kind of gentle spirit of an angel who lived through hell and whose courage still lights the path from darkness."
Trump gave a brief overview of the horrors Wiesel endured in the Nazi death camps, which included watching his father deteriorate from the Nazis' barbarity in Buchenwald. The President then expressed admiration for the Holocaust survivors present who continue to share the horrors they experienced at the hands of the Nazis to ensure that such evil is never repeated.
"You tell of these living nightmares because despite your great pain, you believe in Elie's famous plea that for the dead and the living, we must bear witness," Trump said. "That is why we are here today: to remember and to bear witness, to make sure that humanity never, ever forgets the Nazis massacred six million Jews. Two out of every three Jews in Europe were murdered in the genocide. Millions more innocent people were imprisoned and executed by the Nazis without a mercy, without even a sign of mercy."
The President proceeded to take aim at Holocaust deniers.
"There are even those filled with such hate – total hate – that they want to erase the Holocaust from history," Trump said. "Those who deny the Holocaust are an accomplice to this horrible evil. And we'll never be silent. We just won't. We will never, ever be silent in the face of evil again."
Trump then pivoted toward the alarming rise of anti-Semitism, listing all of its ugly forms.
"We've seen anti-Semitism on university campuses, in the public square and in threats against Jewish citizens," Trump said. "Even worse, it's been on display in its most sinister manner: when terrorists attacked Jewish communities or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction.
"This is my pledge to you: we will confront anti-Semitism. We will stamp out prejudice, we will condemn hatred, we will bear witness and we will act. As President of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people and I will always stand with our great friend and partner, the State of Israel."
Trump ended his speech by recalling the story of Gerda Klein, who was freed from the Nazis by an American soldier who happened to be her future husband, then segued to the notion that good will ultimately prevail.
"We know that in the end, good will triumph over evil," Trump said, "and that as long as we refuse to close our eyes or to silence our voices, we know that justice will ultimately prevail.
"So today we mourn, we remember, we pray and we pledge never again."
Of course, various left-wing Jewish organizations are angry that Trump was allowed to speak about the Holocaust, but that's because they're blinded by their own left-wing dogma from appreciating the sincerity of Trump's speech to protect the Jewish people and the State of Israel and to ensure that the Holocaust never happens again.
