The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect has idly by for too long and now they are taking a stand against anti-semitism.
After Donald Trump took his sweet time acknowledging anti-Semitism, the Anne Frank Center decided to issue a response telling him that it was just too little, too late.
On behalf of the Executive Director of the center, Steven Goldstein, they posted on Facebook:
“The President’s sudden acknowledgement is a Band-Aid on the cancer of Antisemitism that has infected his own Administration. His statement today is a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting Antisemitism, yet day after day have refused to apologize and correct the record.”
They added that the White House refusing to mention Jews during Holocaust Remembrance only fueled Holocaust denialists and that,
“The Antisemitism coming out of this Administration is the worst we have ever seen from any Administration.”
Read the full statement below. It is perfectly written and perfectly timed. Well done.
Sean Spicer defended Trump during today’s press conference, condemned the Anne Frank Center, and stated,
“No matter how many times Trump talks about antisemitsim it’s never enough.”
The Anne Frank Center responded on Twitter,
“LET THEM EAT BABKA..”
Anne Frank Center 1 Trump 0.
