Over the past 16 months, Trump’s campaign has openly and unabashedly stirred up hatred against women, people of color, Muslims and immigrants. He has refused to condemn some of his explicitly white-supremacist alt-right supporters and has even promoted images and tweets created by these individuals on his own Twitter feed.
Trump has also recently incorporated the anti-Semitic trope of an international banker/media/elite conspiracy into his rhetoric, dog-whistling to the white-supremacist, neo-Nazi portion of his base.
My fellow Jews and I have refused to be intimidated by the vicious anti-Semitism of Trump’s online supporters. My activism is informed by the dedication of Jews throughout American history to fighting hatred, bigotry and oppression in all forms.
