DAILYKENN.com -- Some believe Jews are demagogues who can do nothing wrong. Other perceive Jews as demons who can do nothing right.
The fact is: Jews are humans. Some trend to the right of the political and social spectra. Most trend to the left. To acknowledge the latter in anything but flattering terms will bring down the wrath of the powerful Jewish lobby.
In a whimsical moment of honesty, British patriot Nigel Farage took a call from a listener to his radio show who mused aloud that the Jewish lobby was as dangerous to American interests as the Russian government.
Farage failed to slap down the caller and, rather, admitted there were other interest groups in Washington besides the Russians and that the caller made a reasonable point.
Apparently the Jewish lobby imagines itself to be comprised of demagogues who can do nothing wrong. Failure to march in step reveals that one harbors remnants of "deep-seated anti-Semitic tropes."
Donald Trump's name was dragged into the fray. Because Trump voiced his support for Farage in the past, Trump must be anti-Semitic (anti-Jewish) as well.
So let's get this right: Trump is anti-Jewish because he supports Farage who believes criticism of the powerful Jewish lobby can be reasonable.

Trump ally and Brexit leader Nigel Farage says there’s something Americans should worry about more than Russian meddling: Jews.
Farage in a Monday interview singled out the so-called “Jewish lobby” as an overwhelming power in America during a discussion about Russia’s interference in U.S. politics.
“There are other very powerful lobbies in the United States of America, and the Jewish lobby, with its links with the Israeli government, is one of those strong voices,” Farage said on his London-based radio show.
He turned the conversation to Jewish lobbies after a caller had suggested the pro-Israel lobby was as dangerous to the U.S. as the Kremlin.
“That’s a reasonable point,” Farage told the caller.
“There are about 6 million Jewish people living in America, so as a percentage it’s quite small, but in terms of influence it’s quite big.”
