Over 100 headstones vandalized at Jewish cemetery

02/21/2017 12:15 PM

The vandalism Monday of over 100 headstones at a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis arrived against a backdrop of controversy surrounding President Donald Trump’s seeming reluctance

President Donald Trump today denounced anti-Semitism during a tour of the African-American History Museum in Washington D.C. Trump said that the museum was a reminder to denounce bigotry in all its forms, spurring him to say in his prepared remarks that “the anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community, and community centers, are horrible and painful.”

The statement is fairly unremarkable in terms of politicians denouncing anti-Semitism and announces no formal plans for fighting anti-Semitism, be it meeting with community leaders or creating an anti-hate task force. However, it is noteworthy as a shift from Trump’s comments last week, where he denied anti-Semitism was a legitimate problem, instead saying that hate crimes were faked by his opponents for political gain.

Lithuanian nationalists march through Holocaust sites with Pepe-Nazi banners

Pepe the Frog, the internet meme which has become the unofficial mascot of the “alt-right” movement, made an appearance Thursday on the banners of Lithuanian ultra-nationalists.


Jake Turx is the journalist that President Donald Trump shushed during his press conference yesterday when Turx attempted to ask about rising anti-Semitism in the country.

Afterward, Orthodox news site Matzav attacked Turx in rather vicious terms for bringing disrespect to the community, a charge we refuted.

Then Turx appeared on Fox’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, mainly to defend the president from the less-than-ideal optics of the situation. Watch it above and see if you agree with Turx that Trump’s words were “hopeful.”
