Trump Campaign Tries To Deny Obvious Anti-Semitic TV Ad

The ad certainly has a pretty awful "Elders of Zion" feel to it, as Sen. Al Franken noted.

In this last appalling closing ad, we hear Donald Trump's voice, heavy with the premonition of imminent doom for this nation, warning America what will befall us if he's not the one who wins tomorrow. This closing ad has raised eyebrows from anti-discrimination groups like the Anti-Defamation League for the clearly anti-semitic imagery far too reminiscent of 1930's Germany for comfort.

Trump's serious voice, with imagery of powerful bankers etc.:

The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake, for those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests — they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind”

The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.

Bled dry, apparently, by those Jews, the ones responsible for all our economic woes, eh Donald?

For examples of the powerful elites, the ad cuts together video clips of billionaire George Soros, Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein — all of whom are Jewish.

His own son-in-law is also Jewish, but hey, he keeps his mouth shut about his dad-in-law's hate on so many levels, or so it seems. Hell, he's trying to start Trump TV, so $$ signs will supercede principles and ethics, like essentially everything and everyone affiliated with the Trump campaign.

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minnesota, took offense to the terrifying implications of this particular ad.

“When I saw the ad, I thought that this was something of a German shepherd whistle, a dog-whistle, to a certain group in the United States,” Franken, who is Jewish, said on CNN Sunday, slamming its appeal to Trump’s “alt-right base.”

“Maybe I’m sensitive to it, but it clearly had sort of Elders of Zion kind of feel to it, international banking crisis... uh, plot, or conspiracy rather, and then a number of Jews,” Franken added.

The Trump campaign’s own Greenblatt (Jason, not Jonathan of the ADL), who serves as a vice president and chief legal officer of the Trump Organization and is also the co-chair for the campaign’s Israel advisory committee, went on to defend the GOP nominee and his campaign’s advertising as adamantly pro-Jewish.

“Mr. Trump’s message and all of the behavior that I have witnessed over the two decades that I have known him have consistently been pro-Jewish and pro-Israel and accusations otherwise are completely off-base,” Greenblatt said. “The suggestion that the ad is anything else is completely false and uncalled for.”

Sure it is. Donald hasn't shown us any hate yet, right?

This historically awful candidate has exposed the evil id of so many, he's revealed the true souls of many people may have been trying to hide their own moral and ethical deficits. It's almost as if he's done us a favor, provided that he loses on Tuesday, as that revelation is not worth our Democracy or our sanity.
