Hi Natalie

I’m sure anti-antisemitism played a part in motivating Nikolas Cruz to go on the rampage in Florida, but Progressives don’t want to hear this right now because

  1. President Trump’s family is half Jewish, so if you hate Trump, you sort of have to hate Jews by association, and focusing on anti-antisemitism might inspire sympathy for the President.
  2. If you focus on the hatreds driving Nikolas Cruz to mass murder, that distracts from the Gun Control objectives of the Left right now, so Jews have just been thrown under the Democrat Bus...

Sorry about that. If he went there to kill Jews he was a lousy shot: only 35% of the dead were Jewish.
