Donald Trump just closed his extremely offensive and hate-filled election campaign by releasing an appalling anti-Semitic advertisement.
The ad, titled “Donald Trump’s Argument for America,” used audio from the Republican presidential candidate’s heavily criticized West Palm Beach speech and cast doubts on the “failed and corrupt” political class and “disastrous trade deals.”
“The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election,” Trump said in the video. “For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind.”
Besides the Clintons and President Barack Obama, the other three identifiable people in the video — financier George Soros, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein — are all Jews.
“Whether intentional or not, the images and rhetoric in this ad touch on subjects that anti-Semites have used for ages,” Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement. “This needs to stop.”
“When I saw the ad, I thought that this was something of a German shepherd whistle, a dog-whistle, to a certain group in the United States,” said Minnesota Sen. Al Franken. “I think, I’m Jewish, so maybe I’m sensitive to it, but it clearly had sort of Elders of Zion kind of feel to it, international banking crisis... uh, plot, or conspiracy rather, and then a number of Jews.”
I can't believe Trump's final ad didn't feature bearded hook-nosed Jews poring over a map of the world. #restraint— Gary Shteyngart (@Shteyngart) November 6, 2016
