In this kind of thing here, which is now all over the media.
So now Trump stands accused of being an anti-Semite, apparently because of this speech in West Palm Beach, Florida?:
These accusations are pathetic, and a new low in this presidential campaign.
Exactly how Trump can be anti-Semitic when he’s taken some of the most pro-Israel positions of any American presidential candidate ever remains a mystery (see also here and here).
More than this, Ivanka Trump (Trump’s own daughter) is married to a Jewish American businessman and she even converted to Judaism.
Again, the screams of anti-Semitism are pathetic.
Anyone who watches Trump’s West Palm Beach should be struck by this:
Is this guy running for the Socialist Workers Party now? Because what he says here is (more or less) correct. Neoliberal globalisation supports all those things and it’s destroying the Western world. Trump clearly doesn’t have all the answers, but he at least has a half decent grasp of the problem and what needs to be done.
Trump’s attack on the current neoliberal consensus and his hostility to free trade have caused the most hysterical and bilious attacks on him from the elite (an elite which, incidentally, is increasingly multicultural and infected with cultural leftist ideas about diversity and PC culture), and virtually the whole establishment media – whether left or right – have become shameless whores for neoliberal globalisation and open borders.
This is a disgusting spectacle. I am also disgusted that so much of the left (including left heterodox economic bloggers) cannot and will not understand the real significance of Trump and attempt some calm and rational analysis of the Trump phenomenon.
