Donald Trump has gone around talking about all the awards he has received. Of course, he was not telling the truth. He even had a mockup of a TIME magazine cover featuring him and placed it his golf resort shops for awhile. This time, he got a real award.
Former columnist for the Israeli publication The Haaretz Bradley Burston crowned him the Greatest Anti-Semite of our age. He wrote about Trump:
‘If you’re a Jew, you know it the nanosecond you hear it. Anti-Semitism. The real deal. You can’t help it. You carry the sensors for Jew-hate around with you – the alarm receptors are built into your every cell, coiled into your mitochondria, twist-tied into your DNA. Trip-wires to alert you to the Nazi-worshipper, the Grand Inquisitor, the Klansman, the Christ-avenger.’
Burston heard the tweet that was heard around the world:
‘Here’s President Trump questioning the loyalty of Jewish Democrats after blasting Dems over their stance on Israel:
“I think any Jewish people that votes for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”‘

This is why the columnist called Trump a “true anti-Semite:”
‘One characteristic of the true anti-Semite is the way in which they’ll test their message, to see how clear and public and how harmful – and in too many recent cases, how deadly – they can get before they’re stopped. The uber-anti-Semite, meantime, tests how far he can go, how high he can climb, the sewage-depth of what he can get away with, straight up against the Jews themselves.’
The journalist wrote:
‘For years he’s boogalooed and pirouetted around the issue, dog-whistling Dixie at every opportunity. This week though, he made it official, gnawing on and extracting with his very teeth the pin on the fragmentation grenade that went: “Any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”
Trump insulted Jews by saying “the loyalty of Jewish Democrats after blasting Dems over their stance on Israel:”
‘I think any Jewish people that votes for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.’
Then, the former columnist explained his “full frontal” test:
‘There it is. His test of the Jews, full frontal. Come and get me, he taunts. And just watch me as I mine and inflame and leverage the Jew in you, and turn all of it into votes.’
‘In fact, he’s already begun. The first step was to win the mehadrin, ultra-glatt stamp of Jew-loving kosher certification from the Council of Jewish Sages known as the Republican Jewish Coalition. This took only a matter of moments.’
Burston told the world exactly who he was:
‘I am a proud Democrat.
‘I am a proud Jew.
‘I see anti-Semitism as an enemy. I see Donald Trump the same way.
‘I am one of the 80 percent of American Jews who have observed Donald Trump foster, wink at, and benefit from Jew-baiting – along with Islamophobia, homophobia, misogyny, and bigotry toward African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, disabled Americans and immigrants as a whole.’
Then, Burston pitched a burning fastball to Trump’s senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the Republican Jewish Coalition, and any other Jews who enabled Trump:
‘These Jews will not replace us.’
