Curt Schilling Takes Jake Tapper Interview Into A Weird Anti-Semitic Place

This was a dark and unexpected turn in what otherwise would have been an anodyne interview.
Views:

What is it with these Trump supporters? Almost every media appearance is either filled with lies or turns creepy rather quickly.

As CNN's Jake Tapper was interviewing Curt Schilling about his possible Senate run against Elizabeth Warren, Schilling veered off into a creepy pathway.

He implied that the entire Democratic party is anti-Semitic and only supports Israel out of past agreements that are binding.

This is the nonsense that comes straight out of the Brietbart fever swamp.

The topic of Curt's support of Trump and his defense of the sex tape was the last question Tapper asked.

Schilling defended himself from some of his own off the all remarks and then the creep began.

Schilling said, "I would like to ask you this question Jake, I'm assuming you will vote for Hillary Clinton."

"No"

"Okay I'm assuming you're not going to vote for Donald Trump."

"I don't vote in presidential races," Tapper firmly responded.

Schilling continued, ""I would like to ask you something as a person who is practicing the Jewish faith and have since you were young. I don't understand, maybe this is the amateur, non-politician in me, I don't understand how people of Jewish faith can back the Democratic party which over the last 50 years have been so clearly anti Israel. so clearly anti-Jewish, Israel."

He went on, "That I don't know what else would be done, said, or happen for people to understand that they don't -- the Democratic party is alive with Israel, only because we have agreements in place to make them have to be."

Tapper very coolly said, "Well, I don't speak for Jews. I would imagine, just to try to answer your question. One of the reason Jews are Democrats has more to do for social welfare programs and that sort of thing."

Jake repeated, "Again, I don't speak for Jews."

"I know you don't. I just always find it a great conversation for somebody of your faith to -- because I want to understand the reason behind some of those things so i appreciate that."

Why would Schilling try to put Tapper on the spot with a horrible question like that if he doesn't believe he speaks for the "Jews?"

Curt was trying to score a racist political point about the Democratic party through Tapper in the middle of it.

Update: (Karoli) Despite his collection of Nazi memorabilia, Schilling insists there "isn't a racist bone in my body."

Sure. And Donald Trump is a billionaire, too.
