Memories of past anti-Semitism, both personal and institutional, seem to be fading away. In contrast, the progressive democrats invent new ones, much like President Joe Biden recalling his participation in the civil rights movement. Truth be told, he was either a racist or a fellow traveler as he feted genuine racists.
Today, the progressive communist democrats are openly hostile, dismissive, or, at best, ambivalent to the plight of international Jewry, especially as it exists in Israel.
The U.S. Government Turned Away Thousands of Jewish Refugees, Fearing That They Were Nazi Spies
In a long tradition of “persecuting the refugee,” the State Department and FDR claimed that Jewish immigrants could threaten national security
World War II prompted the largest displacement of human beings the world has ever seen—although today's refugee crisis is starting to approach its unprecedented scale. But even with millions of European Jews displaced from their homes, the United States had a poor track record offering asylum. Most notoriously, in June 1939, the German ocean liner St. Louis and its 937 passengers, almost all Jewish, were turned away from the port of Miami, forcing the ship to return to Europe; more than a quarter died in the Holocaust.
Government officials from the State Department to the FBI to President Franklin Roosevelt himself argued that refugees posed a serious threat to national security. Yet today, historians believe that Bahr's case was practically unique—and the concern about refugee spies was blown far out of proportion.

Historian: New evidence shows FDR’s bigotry derailed many Holocaust rescue plans
In his book about Franklin Roosevelt and the Holocaust, Rafael Medoff finds links between the US president’s anti-Japanese stances and his policies against Jews fleeing Hitler
Not only was US president Franklin Roosevelt perfunctory about rescuing Jews from the Nazis, but he obstructed rescue opportunities that would have cost him little or nothing, according to Holocaust historian Rafael Medoff.
FDR’s role in preventing the rescue of European Jewry is detailed in a new book called, “The Jews Should Keep Quiet: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, and the Holocaust.”
Published in September through The Jewish Publication Society, Medoff’s book includes new archival materials about the relationship between Roosevelt and Rabbi Stephen Wise, who the author sees as a sycophantic Jewish leader used by Roosevelt to “keep the Jews quiet.”
Wrote Medoff, “Franklin Roosevelt took advantage of Wise’s adoration of his policies and leadership to manipulate Wise through flattery and intermittent access to the White House.” In return for visits to the White House and Roosevelt calling him by his first name, Wise undermined Jewish activists who demanded the administration let more Jewish refugees into the US.
According to Medoff, Roosevelt’s policies toward European Jews were motivated by sentiments similar to those that spurred him to intern 120,000 Japanese Americans in detention camps as potential spies.
There should be no doubt that the anti-Semitic sentiment in Ivy League schools that feed the U.S. Department of State is alive and influencing current Israeli policy. As for the media, especially the New York Times and the Washington Post, they have traditionally downplayed everything from the Holocaust to today's massacre.
There are defining moments when your character shines through for all to see. And in the internet age, it will be on display and accessible during your lifetime.
If you side with evil, citing your multi-cultural moral equivalency, you are about to get screwed – as the terrorists would kill you as an American no matter whose tee-shirt you are wearing.
