It really doesn’t get any more obscene than this.
As President Trump met with the Rabbi of the synagogue that came under fire, a series of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate groups protested his presence.
The Trumps and Dermer went with Rabbi Jeffrey Myers into the vestibule of the synagogue to light candles in the martyrs’ memory when they arrived. They then laid stones and white flowers at each of the 11 memorial sites outside.
Myers said earlier in the day that the interior of the synagogue, still an active crime scene, was too bullet-riddled to be used for worship.
Later the president visited UPMC Presbyterian hospital, where the wounded including four police officers are recovering.
In the city’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood a crowd estimated at 2,000 people gathered to protest against the president’s presence. With police trying to clear them from city streets, they marched behind a banner urging the president to ‘fully renounce white nationalism.’
The larger of two protest marches was organized by a group called IfNotNow Pittsburgh, along with a coalition that included local branches of Democratic Socialists of America and the International Socialist Organization, according to The Forward.
‘We certainly don’t want Trump to feel welcome,’ IfNotNow activist Ella Mason told the paper.
Her group told the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle in 2017 that its goal was to end the Israeli ‘occupation’ of Palestinians in the Middle East.
That means it’s a pro-terrorist organization. But the DSA is even worse. It’s running a straight up, actual anti-Semitic candidate.
