I'd read about the bomb threats against JCC's, the desecration and repair of a Jewish cemetary, and I couldn't help but chuckle at people blaming Trump. I despise the man with a passion, but in this case, as nausiating as it is, I feel I must defend Donald Trump.

Anti-Semitism has lasted for centuries and it's up to us to stop it. We have to want to. You can't be told to.

Donald Trump's eerie ability to bring out the worst in people doesn't control anyone in the end. People make their own decisions.

We make it a point to always fact check Donald Trump so he can't steal credit for something he didn't do, so let's stop giving Donald Trump credit for provoking a resurgence of Anti-Semitism in America that's been around long before he was born that we just don't like to admit.
