This Trump Supporter Is Blaming Mexicans For His Anti-Semitic Chant Caught On Tape

As if screaming “Jew-S-A” to a crowd of reporters at a rally isn’t enough, this Trump supporter is now doubling down on his anti-Semitic rhetoric. He wants the world to know that he wasn’t being anti-Semitic, just speaking in the Mexican vernacular. Like, no bro. Just no.

One Trump support went full anti-Semitic during the Phoenix, Ariz. rally chanting “Jew-S-A!”

Yeah. This dude, who has been identified as George Lindell, screamed “Jew-S-A” as the crowd was chanting “USA” because, well, Trump.

Well, to make matters just a little more confusing and unbelievable, the “Jew-S-A” man is blaming his chant on Mexicans.

“I’m around Mexican people all the time,” Lindell told BuzzFeed News. “I speak Spanish a lot. That’s just the way I say it.”

OK, two things: 1) Say that to us in Spanish to see if you’re not lying, and b) he is legit trying to say that because he is with Mexican people all day that he now pronounces “U” as “Jew.” #RACIST

That’s ? Not ? How ? This ? Works! ?

Even the Trump campaign has come out to denounce the man over his chant.

Though they are not saying anything about his Mexican comment. Just the fact that he would say “Jew-S-A.”

Twitter is alive with people who are not having any of his racist, blame-the-Mexicans excuse.

And they are even pointing out the calm acceptance of his chant by other Trump supporters.

Seriously. How is this kind of rhetoric even a thing in 2016?

This isn’t the first time anti-Semitic rhetoric has been tied to the Trump campaign.

It was reported earlier in the campaign that Trump supporters were using a tool to add (((echoes))) to mark social media accounts of Jewish people. This is just terrifying.

In fact, some Trump supporters have ditched the anti-Semitic lines and just went full Holocaust deniers.

The Republican National Convention even had to remove the commenting option on the YouTube live coverage because of anti-Semitic comments dominating the thread.

Trump supporters were even sending super insensitive and downright terrifying death threats to Jewish supporters.

Yet, there is too much silence over this issue. Like Martin Niemöller, a Protestant pastor in Germany during World War II, said, “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.”

None of this is OK. There is just one week left in this election and you need to make sure your voice is heard. Let’s just hope America can survive the next seven days.
