Anne Frank Center: White House is anti-Semitic

Posted by | February 11, 2017 12:10 | Filed under: News Behaving Badly Politics

The Anne Frank Center is calling out the White House – and Donald Trump by name – for overt anti-Semitism on Twitter:

Last week, the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect used its Twitter account to bluntly call out President Trump for, in its words, promoting anti-Semitism. The reason, naturally, was that the administration released a statement for International Holocaust Remembrance Day that left out any reference to the Jewish people — a passive-aggressive denial of the explicitly Jewish character of the Holocaust that historian Deborah Lipstadt dubbed “softcore Holocaust denial.”

The Twitter account is manned by Steven Goldstein, a civil rights activist whose work for Garden State Equality was covered in the 2015 movie “Freeheld” (in which he was played by Steve Carell).

“I’ve had it with the mealy mouthed establishment criticisms of Donald Trump,” Goldstein told Salon. “Instead of organizations saying, ‘We take issue with statements coming out of the White House insensitive to the Jewish community’ – really, now, who the hell speaks like that in real life – why not just tell it like it is? There’s anti-Semitism in the White House.”

Goldstein added: “When the Trump Administration refuses to mention Jews in a Holocaust remembrance statement, that’s Holocaust denial, and Holocaust denial is anti-Semitism. When the Trump Administration defends its anti-Semitic exclusion of Jews day after day without the president’s apology, that makes him guilty of anti-Semitism, too. And it doesn’t matter that his daughter is Jewish and married to Jared Kushner and that they’ve given the president Jewish grandchildren. What kind of defense is that? Donald Trump is still guilty of anti-Semitism.”

The Anne Frank Center has also called out Republicans in the House o Representatives:

    “…his daughter is Jewish and married to Jared Kushner and that they’ve given the president Jewish grandchildren. What kind of defense is that?”
    It’s along the lines of “Some of my best friends are black.”

      he will, no doubt, seek photo ops of walking (waddling) through the Holocaust Museum in DC with a yellow star on his lapel?

      well, maybe a yellow star/dixie flag pin?

      just to let his DEPLORABLES know……

    I just don’t understand what purpose it serves…
    Failing to mention Jews specifically at a Holocaust Memorial is not just silly, it’s intellectually dishonest. By definition the Holocaust is an event that happened to Jews.

      Alot of people still think that was a hoax, wouldn’t be surprised Trump and his minions believe that as well! Just acted like they like Jews to get votes!

        Trump’s legacy is in the hands of Jews unless DT jr and his brother can get laid….

      He likes the Jews who weren’t captured.

    I have a huge crush on Steven Goldstein right now and I never even seen him. Can he lead the DNC?

      got to admire someone who stays right on top of the orange blob…

      just wished he could have fitted : LADY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE BY 3,000,000 … there’s 20 states in the union that don’t even have that much of a population!

    Herr Drumpf does not have the love of David Duke and the neo Nazis for no reason. They know the code words and they love what they’re hearing.

    Actually, no victims of any kind were mentioned. 31YO Jewish guy Stephen Miller writes most of the speeches. Was this ignorance, laziness, self-hate? What is the reason?

    Strictly speaking this should have been known as The Republican Party’s Holocaust Disremembrance Day.

    The reich-wing have a kind of “victim envy.”

    So you were oppressed, enslaved, had all your land and property stolen, suffered marginalization and bigotry, but what about the suffering of the poor white race? They are the REAL victims!
