President Donald Trump on Friday declared that the Republican Party is “waiting with open arms” to welcome Jewish voters who he said are fleeing the "total disrespect" they have been shown by Democrats, whom the GOP has accused of harboring anti-Semitic sentiments.
The president touted the so-called Jexodus movement — which purports to be a grassroots movement aimed at getting Jewish millennials to desert the Democratic Party en masse — following segments on Fox News and the right-wing outlet One America News Network featuring the nascent organization.
“The ‘Jexodus’ movement encourages Jewish people to leave the Democrat Party,” he tweeted. “Total disrespect! Republicans are waiting with open arms. Remember Jerusalem (U.S. Embassy) and the horrible Iran Nuclear Deal!”
Umm, I think the idiot-in-chief is somehow thinking that today's Democrats are very close to the Corbyn-ite British left, which they're not. The number of American Jews who are likely to "defect" to the GOP because of a "scary" Ilhan Omar or AOC tweet might be contained on the fingers of two hands.

Chilling. But I guess it's better that they are brazen enough to come out in the open so we understand the menace.
A news kiosk inside Poland's parliament was found to be selling a newspaper with an article instructing readers on "How to recognize a Jew", drawing accusations that lawmakers were happy to tolerate anti-Semitism.
The article in "Tylko Polska" ("Only Poland"), a low-circulation, nationally distributed right-wing weekly, describes how to recognize Jews based on their last names, personality traits and facial features.
Jewish women, it says, "lack the delicacy, modesty and sense of shame that are innate to Polish women."
It goes on: "Because the whole world belongs to them ... they are supposed to exist in every country, take power over nations and lead to the creation of one worldwide Jewish state."
Pictures of the paper on sale at a newspaper kiosk in parliament, in a country where more than 3 million of a population of 3.2 million Jews were murdered by in the Holocaust, were widely shared on social media.
Anti-Semitism never goes away. It just goes underground for awhile, and resurfaces when the time is right. I hate to be such a Debbie Downer, but we're talking centuries of persecution and learned hatred. Heck, it's been less than 75 years since the Holocaust in Europe and people are back at it, including the obscenity of the deniers. It's the worst of our nature as human beings.
