President Donald Trump is being blamed by Liberals for the rise in acts of antisemitism.
Grafton Thomas, who allegedly stabbed five people in Monsey, New York, was arrested and charged for attempted murder.
Speaking about President Trump, Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee had this to say “So sad but predictable. His conduct has made unacceptable conduct acceptable,”
Cohen continued, “It will take decades to cure.”
Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from California added in a tweet that “Anti-Semitism is on the rise in America. And it’s being stoked by @realDonaldTrump who won’t condemn it and Trump’s lawyer, @RudyGiuliani, who just this week said he’s “more Jewish than Soros.”
More from Breitbart News:
“This isn’t happening in a vacuum,” Swalwell wrote in the op-ed. “It’s happening as President Donald Trump and his allies dabble in hate-baiting propaganda. From refusing to unconditionally condemn the 2017 neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville to accusing American Jewish Democrats of disloyalty, President Trump has tacitly or explicitly empowered extremism in ways not seen in generations.”
Arizona Democrat Nathan Schneider, who describes himself on Twitter as a “universal health care advocate, public education proponent, organizer, campaign manager/regional field director, and former House candidate” blamed Trump for the violence:

“Trump is directly to blame for this antisemitic violence and if we don’t take drastic steps to address this threat the attacks will become worse and more frequent. #Monsey,” Schneider tweeted.
The Times of Israel cited a Jewish lawmaker who blamed Trump:
Ofer Cassif, the only Jewish lawmaker representing the predominantly Arab Joint List in the Knesset, reacts to the Monsey stabbing by blaming it on US President Donald Trump.
“Hatred of human beings is infectious: Where Trump incites against Muslims and immigrants, anti-Semitic movements will thrive and Jews will be attacked,” he tweets.
