A 19-year-old anti-Trump man stands accused of shooting up a California synagogue.
That has not stopped Trump’s adversaries for somehow finding a way to blame him for the shooting.
The Washington Times reported that the suspect in the deadly shooting at a San Diego County synagogue had no love for President Trump, apparently blasting him as a “Zionist, Jew-loving” traitor in a hate-filled manifesto posted before Saturday’s attack.
A person identifying himself as John Earnest posted a 4,000-word screed about an hour before the shooting saying he was motivated by his hatred of Jews and belief in white supremacy, as well as the Oct. 27 attack on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, which left 11 dead.
Regardless of this fact, a former Obama official still tried to blame President Trump for the shooting.
Breitbart reported that former Obama administration official Joel Martin Rubin appeared on Fox News on Saturday and accused President Donald Trump of encouraging the shooter who attacked a Poway, California, synagogue earlier that day.
Rubin, a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for House Affairs, and former staffer for the far-left J Street group — which frequently opposes Israel — cited the Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax in blaming Trump.
While admitting that Trump is not an antisemite himself, Rubin claimed that Trump encouraged antisemites:
I’m not saying Donald Trump is an antisemite, but what I am saying is that the rhetoric, for example, in Charlottesville, the “Jews will not replace us” rhetoric, the president’s response to that equivocated, and did not call it out for what it was, and he said these were “very fine people.” And that encouragement, and other language about immigrants, and language about people of difference, people of color, in many instances, that’s the problem.
Rubin went on to connect the president’s alleged “rhetoric” to attacks on Christians in Sri Lanka on Easter, and to Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand, last month.
As Breitbart News and others have shown repeatedly, Trump did not refer to the neo-Nazis as “very fine people,” but specifically excluded them from that description, and said they should be “condemned totally.”
