Jews furious at Trump’s ‘international bankers’ speech


The Republican presidential candidate never mentioned Jews in his prepared text, which he read from teleprompters with some extemporization. But in declaring that his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, is somehow an instrument of a vast conspiracy involving scads of money and “international banks,” he entered what many saw as a territory, real and ideological, where hostility to Jews perpetuates and thrives even in their absence.


JTA – Donald Trump’s star, blunted into a circle, may just have re-sprouted six corners. Trump delivered a speech Thursday in West Palm Beach, Florida, that sounded some familiar themes – familiar to his campaign, but also to folks versed in anti-Semitism and in classic conspiracy theories of global control that is its lifeblood.

The Republican presidential candidate never mentioned Jews in his prepared text, which he read from teleprompters with some extemporization. But in declaring that his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, is somehow an instrument of a vast conspiracy involving scads of money and “international banks,” he entered what many saw as a territory, real and ideological, where hostility to Jews perpetuates and thrives even in their absence.

“Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors,” Trump said.

That quote evidently was key: Trump’s campaign team, @TeamTrump, tweeted it out.

Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, noticed.

“@TeamTrump should avoid rhetoric and tropes that historically have been used against Jews and still spur #antisemitism,” Greenblatt said. “Let’s keep hate out of campaign.”

Trump did not seem amenable to that kind of advice. If not hate, precisely, he was ready to indulge a willingness to blame a mysterious cabal

“This election will determine if we are a free nation or whether we have only the illusion of democracy, but are in fact controlled by a small handful of global special interests rigging the system, and our system is rigged,” he said.

“Our corrupt political establishment, that is the greatest power behind the efforts at radical globalization and the disenfranchisement of working people. Their financial resources are virtually unlimited, their political resources are unlimited, their media resources are unmatched.”

Others heard echoes between Trump’s rhetoric and classic anti-Semitic tropes. Like Greenblatt, a number of writers on Twitter said the intent and the effect is essentially toxic whether or not Jews are explicitly mentioned.

“Trump is priming his supporters to believe the election was stolen from them by a cabal of Jews, blacks, bankers and media,” said Todd Zwillich, a public radio correspondent.

“Is it just me or is much of this Trump speech Jew-baiting?” said Julia Ioffe, who suffered a barrage of anti-Semitic abuse after writing a critical article about Trump’s wife Melania – attacks Trump refused to repudiate.

Ari Ratner, a fellow at the liberal New America think tank, posted a side by side comparison of Trump’s speech and Adolf Hitler’s 1941 declaration of war.

The speech also bore comparison with another notorious anti-Semitic tract: “The Protocols of the Elder of Zion,” the anti-Semitic forgery that has fueled anti-Jewish violence for over a century:

Trump: “Our great civilization here in America and across the civilized world has come across a moment of reckoning. We’ve seen it in the United Kingdom, where they voted to liberate themselves from global government and global trade deals and global immigration deals that have destroyed their sovereignty and have destroyed many of those nations. The central base of world political power is right here in America, our corrupt political establishment that is the greatest power behind the efforts at radical globalization and the disenfranchisement of working people.”

Protocols (from the introduction, written in the voice of a “scholar” who purports to be revealing a secret Jewish document): “The nations of the West are being brought under international control at political, military and economic levels. They are rapidly in process of becoming controlled also on the social level. All alike are being told that their only hope lies in the surrender of national sovereignty.”

Trump: “The corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism, they are a political special interest, no different than any other … with an agenda, and the agenda is not for you, it’s for themselves …

“The establishment and their media enablers wield control over this nation through means that are very well known.”

Protocols (in the voice of its fabricated Jewish “conspirators”): “Through the Press, we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade: thanks to the Press we have got the gold in our hands, notwithstanding that we have had to gather it out of the oceans of blood and tears.”

The dreamscape conjured up by Trump’s speech, a conspiracy theory anchored by a proliferation of anti-Semitic tropes, but missing Jews, is not an unfamiliar one. “None Dare Call it Conspiracy,” a popular far-right tract published in 1971, explicitly repudiates Jew hatred, and then, like Trump did in his speech, advances the same conspiratorial imaginings prolific in “The Protocols.” It was in its day tremendously influential on the antecedents to the alt-right.

Trump’s speech, delivered in a must-win state, added flesh to the accusation in his notorious July 2 tweetdepicting Clinton, against a pile of cash and a six-pointed star, as the “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!”

The tweet was deleted the same day and campaign staff replaced it with an identical one, with the phrase now backed up by a red circle. But Trump was furious at his staff for deleting the tweet, and at accusations that the tweet was anti-Semitic, although the image originated on an anti-Semitic website. At best, Trump didn’t know that the Star of David tweet, and the conspiracy theories it conjures, was a product of an anti-Semitic imagination. At worst, he didn’t care, and was willing to ignore its toxic provenance in courting a dangerous fringe.

Conspiracy theories are composed of two elements: the plot and its executors. The imagined plot is a device aimed at isolating and marginalizing – if not physically harming – its falsely accused executors.

Whether or not Trump intended to intimate that his “handful of global special interests” are Jewish, his speech Thursday seeded the present tumult with the threats of a violent past.

    We must thank the jews for confirming what we all have thought for a long time.

    Truly astounding speech. Very, very close to the heart of the problem. He is leveling-up a huge number of citizens.

    This is just so priceless. I remember a while ago saying this to a friend who, a propose of nothing, is married to a Jewess. I said to him, to fix America, you need to fix three key sectors: banking (nationalise Federal Reserve, reform Wall Street), the media (chop it into small pieces, and put in place laws to limit large ownership of it) and then Washington (monitor the activities and limit the power of lobby groups, as well as auditing the source of contributions to politicians. Just a thought: after the major contenders during an election have been defined, why doesn’t the Treasury just give each one an equal amount of money for the rest of their campaign, and PREVENT any further special interest contributions?). I added that if this ever came to pass, without the word Jew ever being mentioned in the reforms, Judea would declare war on America. He thought I was insane. But he still speaks to me.

    The same Swiss court that initially went with the “Forgery” lie, overturned the verdict on appeal; something I guess the jews are unaware of, even if it is just coincidental that the Protocols have fit the template of what jewish power had envisaged.

    The jews never let facts stand in the way of their lies.

    Ha, the ADL are shameless. So fucking transparent. Greenblatt and his predecessor Abe Foxman are the scum of the earth. The fact that Greenblatt ties the mention of an international banking conspiracy to Jews without any mention of Jews is practically an admission, spun into a “nothing to see here” trope. Give me 5 minutes in a room with these grubs and I’ll “impress” upon them that it is the gentiles that are the base of the pyramid…in other words, we are more important than these rats who are the self-appointed rulers over all of us.

    Why are jews so easily triggered by the term “international bankers” if the jewish dominance of international banking were just a tired old “anti-semitic canard?” Obviously this hits a little too close to home. It’d never occur to people that bankers=JEWS if these dumbasses weren’t always screaming bloody murder about it. It’s so ironic. How many new anti-semites have they’ve accidentally red-pilled this time? lol

    You mean like the Hamilton Project. Sachs is so up in it it not funny. Over 20 billion in our tax dollars to pay these crooks.

    well I for one didn`t think Trump had it in him to make a speech like this . I hears it on the radio last night and could hardly believe my ears. After hearing that if I could I would deffo vote for Trump now that he has made his position clear on where he stands with the powers that be entrenched deep in the American establishment. Go Go Trump Head………Uf Hilary wins we are all dead anyway but with this guy there is just a chance of survival for my grand kids.

    Ah their guilt makes them squeal like Dracula before a crucifix! Trump names them not, but they jump to…. conclusions that merely confirm what we all really know already.

    Who is the schill who wrote this biased crap?

    It is now acknowledged without question that Hollywood, the 6 mega multi-media companies which control over 90% of everything we see, hear, and read, all 4 major search engines and of course the Federal Reserve are owned and or controlled by Zionist Jews. It is a fact. It is also these very same entities which are so blatantly attempting to determine the outcome of the Presidential election. It is also those very same entities along with the huge power block of zionists in Congress which hijacked US foreign policy in the wake of 9-11. In other words, it is a very small, very rich, very powerful group of Zionists/neocons most of whom are Jewish and Dual citizen Israelis that have run the country into the proverbial ditch and are willy nilly destroying what it left. Again, these are the facts.

    These facts are an attack on a group of people who are generally speaking of one religion. It is NOT an attack on the religion itself, nor their faith in it. So for all those people that don’t like criticism of the despicable, evil actions of zionists/neocons I have few things to say: If you care about America and being an American help us to stop them. Refusal to do so means you are aiding and abetting treasonous swine, which makes you one as well…..And finally, objecting to nonreligious actions of Jewish people is NEVER anti-semitic!

    Say goodbye to The Federal Reserve Bank when Donald is POTUS.
    You know the Federal Reserve? It’s neither Federal or does it have any Reserves.
    Bye, bye, counterfeiters and quisling thieves. Time to get a real job. Try farming.
