On January 13, 2020, SaveTheWest contributor Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, president of the American Center for Democracy, posted an article containing key passages from of Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR)’s January 8 speech denouncing anti-Semitism, and revealed the left-leaning entities that are criticizing him for it. Here are excerpts from her article:
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), important speech on the Alarming Rise of Anti-Semitic Attacks — And How to Stop Them, on the floor of the U.S. Senate on January 8, should be read by all.
The Senator’s warning should have been praised in the headlines of all major media outlets in the U.S., and Israel. But it was mentioned only in a few Jewish and Israeli newspapers, mostly Left-leaning. Though the Senator did not mention George Soros, the headline of the Israeli Left-leaning daily – and New York Times’ partner, Haaretz – screamed: “Sen. Tom Cotton accuses Soros-funded think tank of fostering antisemitism,” implying – as they, and most other progressive radical-Left outlets who act as Soros’s bandogs do – that anyone critical of any of many Soros initiatives, is an anti-Semite.
What did Sen. Cotton say to anger Haaretz?
“Anti-Semitism is the ancient hatred, but today it can appear in new disguises. It festers on Internet message boards and social media,” said the Senator. He then had the Chutzpa pointing out that anti-Semitism, “festers in so-called Washington think tanks like the Quincy Institute, [emphasis added] an isolationist blame-America-first money pit for so-called “scholars” who’ve written that American foreign policy could be fixed if only it were rid of the malign influence of Jewish money.”
