After the horrific shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday morning, the world has learned that the suspect was a Trump-hating anti-Semite. Yet somehow, that gives liberals the reason to blame President Trump and his supporters for the tragedy.
With mob mentality, a slew of Hollywood celebrities and leftist reporters rushed to social media to blame President Donald Trump, his supporters, and lawful gun owners minutes after the senseless act.
“As an American Jew I feel nauseous. And if you support Donald Trump you should too because this shit is on YOU. IT’S YOUR FAULT,” actor Ike Barinholtz wrote. “Remember that tonight as you’re trying to go to sleep.”

“To Sheldon Adelson and my other Jewish brothers and sisters who support this bigot in the name of Israel: Is moving the embassy to Jerusalem really worth all the hate Trump has sewn?” Modern Family producer Danny Zuker said of the billionaire donor.

Early on Saturday, Robert Bowers allegedly opened fire inside the synagogue, killing at least 11 people and wounding six others, including four police officers who actively engaged him. Bowers was a legal firearm owner, but his hate-filled rants on social media sites, showed that he was also a most vile Trump hater.
“All of America is in mourning over the mass murder of Jewish Americans at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh,” President Trump said after the tragedy. “We pray for those who perished and their loved ones, and our hearts go out to the brave police officers who sustained serious injuries.”
The president also condemned the act, labeling it an “evil Anti-Semitic attack is an assault on humanity.”
“It will take all of us working together to extract the poison of Anti-Semitism from our world. We must unite to conquer hate.”
As the president ordered that flags at the White House to be flown at half-staff, and on public grounds and at every military posts in “solemn respect for the victims of the terrible act of violence perpetrated at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh,” elitist actors and other celebrities were busy spewing their vitriol.
They wasted no time pushing for gun control, spreading conspiracy theories among the ignorant, and targeting President Trump, whose children and grandchildren are Jewish. They also blamed the president’s supporters for ‘normalizing an anti-Semitic climate’ that led to the act and even advocated the destruction of free speech.

Dogwhistle reminder that these words used by our openly Nationalist President are winks to the alt right:

Rabbi Myers is right: #WeDeserveBetter. Better gun laws, better leaders who will stand up for public safety, not the interests of the NRA.

To the families of those who died in the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, my deepest and sincere sympathies. This horror is escalating day by day. If only we had LEADERSHIP that would actually take steps to stop it.

Ivanka reminded us just now that “America is stronger than the acts of a depraved bigot.”
I agree. Together, we can defeat her father’s Nazi dog-whistling and support of violence.

Dear media. All of you. Stop broadcasting his rallies. Don't show clips either. PLEASE. For the love of America, cut off his incessant hate speech. Now.

Before the act on Saturday, Bowers wrote that he did not vote for Donald Trump, “nor have I owned, worn or even touched a maga hat.”
He also wrote, “Trump is a globalist, not a nationalist.”
“There is no #MAGA as long as there is a k*** [slur for a Jewish person] infestation. #Qanon is here to get patriot that were against martial in the 90’s to be the ones begging for it now to drain muh swamp.
“But go ahead and keep saying you are #Winning.”
After the attack, the social media site Gab announced they were fully working with authorities. In a statement, the platform explained that Bowers had other social media accounts, but “Gab took swift and proactive action to contact law enforcement immediately. We first backed up all user data from the account and then proceeded to suspend the account. We then contacted the FBI and made them aware of this account and the user data in our possession.”
It seems very odd to many conservatives that President Trump would be blamed for such an adamant anti-Semitic attack, while Louis Farrakhan is allowed to post freely on a number of leftist platforms, and frequently has met with democrat leadership.
Where is the celebrity outrage over that?
It’s missing… just like their ability to think logically.
