As evidence of Trumps criminality becomes irrefutable, the right turns up the anti-Semitism

As evidence of Trumps criminality becomes irrefutable, the right turns up the anti-Semitism

As Goldberg has written in the past, and as has become increasingly obvious, the playbook that Republicans are following is one followed by Russia, by Central and Eastern European tinpot dictators. That’s a playbook that always, invariably, comes back to anti-Semitism. We have already seen it rear its ugly head in conspiracy theories that the right is promoting to discredit witnesses in the impeachment inquiry, notes Paul Waldman, writing for the American Prospect..

In her testimony, former National Security Council official Fiona Hill described the smear campaign spearheaded by Giuliani against then-ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch this way: “This was a mishmash of conspiracy theories” that included “the idea of an association between her and George Soros.”

Hill testified that Soros was a frequent element in charges made against her as well: that she was “a Soros mole in the White House” and that the financier was behind a conspiracy in Ukraine to attack Trump. This is something Giuliani has repeated in public as well.

Goldberg observes that the drumbeat of anti-Semitism from the right is rising proportionally to the amount of damning evidence mounting against Trump, with Fox News as the primary source of amplification.
