Not that it’s surprising anymore but Donald Trump went off the rails during his rally in West Palm Beach, Florida.
An extra bizarre speech was more or less expected — and duly delivered — in the wake of the multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against him.
In response, to journalist Natasha Stoynoff’s accusation, for instance, that Trump forced himself onto her during her during one of her People magazine assignments, the media mogul mocked her looks in front of his supporters, saying, “Look at her. Look at her words. You tell me what you think. I don't think so. I don't think so.”
But that wasn’t the only offensive line of his address.
Not many people noticed but Trump’s speech also reeked of anti-Semitism.
Throughout his rant, Trump subtly resurrected anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about “international banks” that meddle with government affairs to aid their “global political agenda.”
"Clinton meets in secret with international banks in order to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors,” said Trump, after citing recent emails of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton that were published by WikiLeaks.
Wait, he didn’t stop there.
“Let's be clear on one thing, the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism,” he added. “They're a political special interest no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with a total political agenda, and the agenda is not for you, it's for themselves.”
“This is a conspiracy against you, the American people, and we cannot let this happen or continue.”
To anyone who has studied basic WWII history in school, terms such as “international banks,” “global conspiracy” and “financial entity with political agenda” might sound familiar because they were frequently used by Nazi Germany leaders who believed Jewish bankers, from across the world, had conspired to lead Germany into an economic crisis towards the end of the 19th century.
And everybody knows what happened after that.
Fortunately, there were some people who noticed the anti-Semitic code-words in his speech:
Whenever I conclude nothing Trump can say could shock me, he ups the ante. Today he went full-tilt Mussolini. Is quoting Hitler next?— (((David Galiel:-))) (@davidgaliel) October 13, 2016
