Ken Bernstein reflects on the anti-Semitism of Trump’s followers, after reading an article by Jonathan Weisman of the New York Times. After the journalist tweeted the article by Robert Kagan about Trump and the rise of fascism, he began receiving a steady barrage of anti-Semitic tweets. These were not from Trump but from his followers.

 

Throughout the campaign, Trump has been slow to disassociate himself from the hate groups who admire him, not only the anti-Semites, but the white nationalists. The extremists who linger in the shadows feel encouraged by Trump’s war against “political correctness.” Most of the time, what he calls political correctness is simply treating people who are different from you with courtesy and civility.
