Donald Trump responded to the accusations of anti-Semitism for his campaign’s use of a Star of David in an attack ad on Hillary Clinton by posting an image of a Disney Frozen ad that likewise contained a six-pointed star.
“Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the ‘Star of David’ also?” tweeted Trump. “Dishonest media!”
After the Hillary campaign called out Trump on the use of the Jewish star, which many interpreted as a nod to the Alt-Right’s frequent use of anti-Semitic memes, the Trump campaign issued a response Monday.
“These false attacks by Hillary Clinton trying to link the Star of David with a basic star, often used by sheriffs who deal with criminals and criminal behavior, showing an inscription that says ‘Crooked Hillary is the most corrupt candidate ever’ with anti-Semitism is ridiculous.” said Trump’s social media director, Dan Scavino. “The social media graphic used this weekend was not created by the campaign nor was it sourced from an anti-Semitic site. It was lifted from an anti-Hillary Twitter user where countless images appear The sheriff’s badge — which is available under Microsoft’s ‘shapes’ — fit with the theme of corrupt Hillary and that is why I selected it.”
The left-leaning mainstream media once again exposed its own bias through its extensive coverage of Trump’s anti-Hillary meme, all the while ignoring the overt anti-Semitism of some of Clinton’s key connections, including close confidant Sid Blumenthal and his virulently anti-Israel son Max Blumenthal. On Tuesday, Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro highlighted the media’s blatant hypocrisy regarding the two candidates anti-Semitic connections:
While the media consume themselves with checking into idiot Donald Trump’s online connections with the execrable alt-right, thanks to his retweet of a meme featuring Hillary Clinton, cash, and a Jewish star, the media busily ignore another, far more anti-Semitic story from the Hillary Clinton camp. Over the weekend, Holocaust survivor and human rights icon Elie Wiesel died at the age of 87. That prompted anti-Semite par excellence Max Blumenthal, son of Hillary’s central confidante Sidney Blumenthal, to ragetweet about Wiesel […]
Blumenthal has likened Israel to Nazi Germany, but that didn’t stop his father, Sidney, from featuring his work in emails to Hillary Clinton. Sidney, who is also rabidly anti-Israel, was so dirty that the Obama State Department refused to employ him. Back in May 2010, Sideny Blumenthal wrote a direct email to Hillary excoriating Israel for banning anti-Israel nutcase Noam Chomsky; Hillary wrote to her assistant “Pls print 3 copies.” That same month, Sidney wrote Hillary an anti-Israel critique of Israel defending herself from a Turkish-originated terror flotilla: “are the Israelis bones stupid?” Blumenthal asked.
And Sidney sent Max’s work to Hillary routinely. […]
The media have no interest in any of this – even though all of it sheds clear light on Hillary’s anti-Israel politics and her willingness to hobnob with anti-Semites.
