In a recent interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, Steven Spielberg showed tremendous cowardice and ignorance when discussing the alarming levels of anti-Semitism occurring in the United States. Spielberg stated that “people must confront the alarming rise of hateful ideologies.” What “hateful ideologies” was Spielberg referring too? Spielberg went on to say “when collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows” and that this was happening “during a time of heightened identity politics and the massacre of 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in which the suspected shooter left a trail of anti-Semitic posts online.” In other words, it’s Trump’s fault.
Like most prominent Jews, Spielberg refuses to be truthful. He refuses to admit that high levels of Muslim immigration have caused the surge in anti-Semitic incidents. He refuses to admit that rampant anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party (which he votes for and funds) is making life for Jews increasingly dangerous. He refuses to admit that the radical left, which has taken over the Democrat Party, is legitimizing hatred of Israel on college campuses, the mainstream media, and the now corporate America. Spielberg’s conduct is not a surprise. Spielberg won’t jeopardize his reputation and career by speaking the truth in defense of his people. Instead, Spielberg takes the easy way out by implying that Trump (the most pro-Israel and pro-Jewish president ever) and his supporters are to blame for the increased levels of anti-Semitism in America.
Spielberg also has a history of pandering to enemies of Israel and the Jewish people. Spielberg has addressed and glorified the anti-Semitic United Nations during (of all things) a Holocaust memorial ceremony. Spielberg also shamelessly honored President Obama (through Spielberg’s Holocaust History Foundation) with his “Ambassador to Humanity” award, despite Obama being a relentless enemy of Israel. Furthermore, if there is a second Holocaust, it will be because of the policies of Barack Obama. That never bothered the clueless Spielberg.
“Spielberg, 25 years after ‘Schindler’s List,’ warns against collective hate,” by Alexa Keyes, MSN, December 6, 2018:
In the wake of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October, acclaimed Hollywood director Steven Spielberg believes now, more than ever, is when people must confront the alarming rise in hateful ideologies.
Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film about the Holocaust, “Schindler’s List,” is returning to select theaters this week in honor of its 25th anniversary. It’s a story that still resonates today, he said in an interview with “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt airing Wednesday.
“I think there is more at stake today than even back then,” Spielberg said, referring to when the film was released.
“When collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows,” said Spielberg. “We have to take it more seriously today than I think we have had to take it in a generation,” he said during a time of heightened identity politics and the massacre of 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in which the suspected shooter left a trail of anti-Semitic posts online.
“Schindler’s List,” released in 1993, tells the true story of Oskar Schindler, a German businessman whose efforts to employ Jews during the Holocaust saved 1,200 people….
