US Jewish groups condemn Trump’s comparison to Nazi Germany
ADL, AJC say US president-elect ‘diminishes the horrors’ of the Holocaust in likening US intelligence agencies to Third Reich
ed note–Trump’s use of the term ‘Nazi Germany’–although sure to result in all-too-inevitable, reflexive howling amongst white nationalists who have made a cult religion around Hitler worship/Holocaust revisionism–nevertheless was brilliant. In effect, what Trump managed to do was to hijack an already-existing Judaic narrative and use it as a weapon against his Judaic enemies intent upon bringing him down, using the ‘Russian angle’ to do it.
The obvious proof that ‘the Jews’ are not on board with Trump should be obvious to all now except the willfully and woefully blind. None of the present screeching to which all have been subjected now for over a year, crescendoeing with this latest ploy to break Trump’s legs politically and leave him fighting for every milimeter he can get before he has even taken the oath of office WOULD NOT be taking place if he were ‘owned by the Jews’ as the more reactionary and 2-dimensional ‘analysts’ within this movement have concluded. Obviously, the more powerful elements making up Judea, Inc have ‘done the math’ on Trump and don’t like where he plans to take the US and by extension, the rest of the world, all his pandering to Jewish interests notwithstanding.

US Jewish groups on Wednesday condemned President-elect Donald Trump for suggesting US intelligence agencies leaked an unverified report that Russia has compromising information on him, a move he compared to Nazi Germany.
Just over a week before Trump takes office, the United States has been rocked by unsubstantiated claims that his aides colluded with the Kremlin to win the election — and that Russia has compromising sexual material on Trump.
Trump initially drew the Holocaust analogy in a tweet early Wednesday. When pressed on the remark during a press conference later in the day, Trump likened the leaking of the dossier to a policy employed by the Third Reich.
“That’s something that Nazi Germany would have done and did do…. That information that was false and fake got to the public,” he said.
In response, the Anti-Defamation League and AJC rebuked Trump and urged him to apologize.
“No one should cavalierly draw analogies to Nazi Germany, especially the next leader of the free world,” Anti-Defamation League head Jonathan Greenblatt said in a tweet. “It is not only a ridiculous comparison on the merits, but it also coarsens our discourse and diminishes the horror of the Holocaust. The President-elect should apologize for the remark.”
In an angry Twitter tirade on Wednesday, Trump vehemently rejected reports that Russia had compromising information on him, including sex tapes.
“Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public,” tweeted Trump. “One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
AJC (formerly known as the American Jewish Committee) also called the comparison “inappropriate.”
“We regret @realDonaldTrump’s use of Nazi Germany regarding the media – an inappropriate comparison that diminishes the horrors of that time.”
Moscow denied the reports, calling them a fabrication and claiming their purpose was to damage Russia’s relations with Washington.
“The Kremlin does not have compromising information on Trump,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, calling the claims a “total fake” and “obvious attempt to harm our bilateral relations.”
CNN reported that intelligence officials briefing Trump last Friday on allegations of Russian meddling in the US election had also given him a synopsis of the explosive and unverified claims.
The intelligence chiefs presented America’s incoming 45th president, as well as outgoing President Barack Obama, with a two-page summary on the potential embarrassment, according to CNN and The New York Times, which cited multiple unnamed US officials with direct knowledge of the meeting.
Trump denounced the reports as a “political witch hunt.”
