I take back everything I said about Jared Kushner. From the ADL, I just learned that criticizing him is anti-Semitic! (“Anti-Defamation League: Anti-Kushner tweets were anti-Semitic”):
Hundreds of thousands of tweets about Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon exploded on Twitter after reports detailed a feud between the two presidential advisers.
And several of those tweets targeting Kushner were anti-Semitic, the Anti-Defamation League said.
The group said Monday its analysis found that many tweets labeled #FireKushner, #KushnerAtWar and #KushnersWar were anti-Semitic. Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, is an Orthodox Jew…
“What started as a few isolated anti-Semitic tweets suggesting that Jared Kushner should be ‘fired’ because of his ‘Jewish supremacist views’ has quickly metastasized into a full-blown onslaught of anti-Semtici hate speech,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement. “It shows how quickly hate speech can can multiply and come to light on social media platforms, and reminds us of how much work we need to do to combat hate.”
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the trending hashtags.
Hopefully, Twitter can do something to end such anti-Semitic hate speech.
My apologies to Mr. Kushner!
