President Trump has descended deeper into delusional paranoia and malignant conspiracy in response to the widespread outcry and mass protest against his Supreme Court Justice nominee Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women and of perjuring himself during his deplorable tantrum of a testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Deeply disturbed and discomforted by the sight of sexual assault survivors directly confronting Republican Senators and forcing them to acknowledge their existence, Trump has turned to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories to discredit them.
Yesterday, the President accused the women who attempted to talk to Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) of being paid protestors planted by conservative boogeyman, the Jewish billionaire and Holocaust survivor George Soros.
The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers

Soros is the principal antagonist in the anti-Semitic right-wing conspiracy theories that originated with fringe extremists like lizardmen aficionado and snake oil virility pill kingpin Alex Jones but have been catapulted into the mainstream with the rise of Donald Trump and his idiot sons.
Which makes it deeply disturbing to see the former Mayor of New York and the President’s current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, using his Twitter to promote the idea of imprisoning a Jewish billionaire and seizing all of his assets, which was a favored trick of the German Nazi Party in the years leading up to the mass genocide of Jews in the Holocaust.
Trumpers, including the president's attorney, are now publicly floating the idea of imprisoning a Jewish billionaire and seizing his assets.

The idea was also independently proposed by cigarette ash-headed right-wing radio pundit Bill Mitchell. Between the two of their Twitter accounts (176k and 385k followers, respectively), the anti-Semitic attack was blasted out to nearly half a million people.
They weren’t the only prominent Trump supporters to dabble in anti-Semitic whistleblowing today:
thanks for participating in today's "energize the base with a scary Jewish name" sweepstakes, pick up your participation swastika at the nearest GOP candidate's office

In case you needed some proof that the President’s anti-Semitic dog whistles are being heard and welcomed by America’s neo-Nazis and white supremacists, look no further than the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia in Fairfax, which was vandalized with nineteen spray-painted swastikas last night — barely a day after the President’s anti-Semitic tweets.
This is what the Republican Party now represents — and that’s why it’s more important than ever we take power out of their hands in November.
I’m just sickened and heartbroken. Not the first time. This building was tagged with Nazi “SS” lightning bolts recently. But this beats all.
All the “globalist” and “Soros” code wording matters. All the alt right infowar snake oil selling matters. All the permissiveness matters. pic.twitter.com/Ec1xWYyouF
