There are few remarks made by someone in a position of authority that could be more profoundly ignorant and stupid than the ones made by DC Council Member White about the Rothschilds.
It is easy to dismiss such remarks as the eructations of a moron, but I’m very much afraid they are a sinister example of what has been going on within the Democratic Party and the black community with their enthusiastic embrace of hate-groups like BLM, ANTIFA and the bevy of beauties who organized the Women’s March.
The irony here, of course, is the strenuous and successful efforts of American Jewry to help pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prominent and senior Democrats such as Senator Al Gore Sr. and Senator Robert Byrd vigorously opposed.
It only took twenty years for Jesse Jackson to start describing New York City as “Hymietown” and another seven years after that for the inveterate race-hustler, Al Sharpton, to incite an anti-Semitic riot in Crown Heights. Twenty seven years after that we now have presidential hopefuls like Kirstin Gillibrand and Cory Booker distancing themselves from the traditional support of Democrats for Israel and we have Representative Keith Ellison and seven other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, a cesspool of anti-Semitism, refusing to denounce or distance themselves from Louis Farrakhan and his cult of Jew-haters and anti-white guttersnipes.
Americans everywhere, not just American Jews, have the right to expect much better and more helpful behavior from these self-styled leaders but one can detect a whiff of sulfur coming from the infusion of vast amounts of money not only from the new politburo of the Left championed by the ubiquitous and treacherous George Soros but also from Islamic states whose title deed, the Quran itself, demands the subjugation and death of Jews.
In the meantime, pandering but ambitious politicians like Mr. White just can’t resist jumping on board a passing bandwagon and getting cozy with all the other morally bankrupt passengers on the rickety but well-fueled contraption they anxiously hope to ride to power. Shame on the miserable lot of them.
DC lawmaker blames Jews for bad weather
A DC lawmaker blamed a late-winter snowfall on a family of Jewish bankers — accusing them of controlling the climate and orchestrating natural disasters.
Council member Trayon White Sr. apologized for the comments he made in a since-deleted video on his official Facebook page posted Friday morning as snow fell over the capital.
“Man it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” White can be heard saying in the video, the Washington Post reported.
“And D.C. keeps talking about, ‘We a resilient city,’” he continues. “And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”
The Rothschilds are a wealthy business dynasty descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, an 18th-century Jewish banker who lived in Frankfurt, Germany.
Over the years, they’ve been the subject of wild anti-Semitic conspiracy theories accusing them and other Jewish people of secretly orchestrating world events to their advantage.
“This kind of anti-Semitism is unacceptable in any public official. This so diminishes what America is about and adds to the oppressive feeling going on in the country right now,” Rabbi Daniel Zemel of Temple Micah in northwest Washington told the paper.
On Sunday night, White posted a note on Twitter apologizing “to the Jewish community and anyone I have offended.”
“The Jewish community have been allies with me in my journey to help people. I did not intend to be Anti-Semitic, and I see I should not have said that after learning from my colleagues,” the note reads.
White — a Democrat who won the Ward 8 seat in November 2016 — also said he’d reached out to his “friends” at the organization Jews United for Justice.
“They are helping me to understand the history of comments made against Jews and I am committed to figuring out ways continue to be allies with them and others,” he wrote.
The organization acknowledged speaking with White, writing that they “look forward to working with him toward deeper understanding of anti-Semitism and toward our collective liberation.”
Fellow lawmaker Brianne Nadeau, who is Jewish, said she believes White’s apology is sincere.
“I believe he is being truthful when he says he didn’t realize what his statement implied,” she wrote in a statement on Facebook.
Anti-Semitic incidents have jumped 57 percent over the last year nationwide, the Anti-Defamation League reported.
They more than doubled in DC between 2015 and 2017, according to the Washington Post.
