    Trump Targets Anti-Semitism

    Trump Targets Anti-Semitism and Israeli Boycotts on College Campuses

    Just signed the order moments ago.

    The president’s order would allow the government to withhold money from campuses deemed to be biased, but critics see it as an attack on free speech.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump plans to sign an executive order on Wednesday targeting what he sees as anti-Semitism on college campuses by threatening to withhold federal money from educational institutions that fail to combat discrimination, three administration officials said on Tuesday.

    The order will effectively interpret Judaism as a race or nationality, not just a religion, to prompt a federal law penalizing colleges and universities deemed to be shirking their responsibility to foster an open climate for minority students. In recent years, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions — or B.D.S. — movement against Israel has roiled some campuses, leaving some Jewish students feeling unwelcome or attacked.

    In signing the order, Mr. Trump will use his executive power to take action where Congress has not, essentially replicating bipartisan legislation that has stalled on Capitol Hill for several years. Prominent Democrats have joined Republicans in promoting such a policy change to combat anti-Semitism as well as the boycott-Israel movement.



    Note - this is NOT another "Impeach Trump" thread - leave that elsewhere.

    Well...

    Critics of President Donald Trump accused him of antisemitism Tuesday evening because of a poorly-worded tweet by the New York Times about an executive order to fight discrimination against Jews.

    As Breitbart News reported, President Trump planned to sign an executive order Wednesday directing federal agencies to apply Title VI of the Civil Rights Act — which bans discrimination on the basis of “race, color, or national origin” — to Jews.

    The move has long been supported by Jewish groups and was first undertaken by the Department of Justice in the Obama administration in 2010, which expanded the federal government’s interpretation of Title VI to cover religious groups. That decision was also implemented by the Department of Education under Obama.

    However, the New York Times tweeted Tuesday evening that Trump’s executive order would redefine Judaism as a “nationality” — an error that evoked the antisemitic practices of totalitarian societies, such as the Soviet Union.

    Well, I mean, you also had the former head of FBI intelligence on national TV claim Trump had lowered the flag on 8/8 (H/H), which was code for Heil Hitler. If the former director of FBI intelligence says it, it's good enough for me.

    Ummm, Jew is:

    A race, a religion, and a nationality. It’s possible to be none, all, or any mixture in between.

    Case in point --- my former exec admin (the Jewish atheist lesbian liberal) came to visit our Church Sunday morning with her partner and her partner's mother.

    She noted that I talked an awful lot about 'Jesus' and 'Jews', but said I did it quite well.

    AND, more generally, a "Semite" can refer to people who speak a Semitic language, including the Jews and Arabs as well as the ancient Babylonians, Assyrians, and Phoenicians.

    Dont have to. I added this to the list of 'good' things about Trump in the thread where pix asked me for a list of 3 good things about Trump. So, no complaints here.
