An Open Leter to Trump’s AS Czar: Elan Carr

Anti-Semitism Czar Elan Carr to give a talk in Tel Aviv.

Elan Carr is coming to Tel-Aviv to speak about Antisemitism in America. Before being appointed as Trump’s Czar on combating Antisemitism, his job had nothing to do with combating antisemitism; he was a Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney in Special Victim’s Unit. So Carr is another political appointee without any relevant experience aside from being Jewish. His lack of experience has been deadly to the Jewish community in the United States. Last year over 7000 hate crime attacks have been committed against Americans. This was a record year after a record year. 57% of all religiously motivated attacks have been against the Jewish Americans, also a record number. However, the record number of attacks are also very different in nature from pre-Trump era attacks.

Since Trump took office, his language unleashed an era that in his words an “end of politically correct language.” For him, this means it is ok to demean women, attack immigrant citizens and refugees, “disloyal” Jews, as well as those who are disabled or in any way different from the White Anglo Saxon male. For the rest of America, it has become an open season on anyone who speaks a different opinion or shows any kind of difference from the current administration in their faith or their approach to values.

This end of PC has created a climate of death threats against journalists who do their jobs to report about Trump white house and hate in America, deadly attacks on journalists, deadly attacks on Muslims and immigrants and of course, deadly attacks on Jewish Americans. White power has surged, hate group number has skyrocketed to record numbers.

At the same time, funding to combat this resurgence in hate and intolerance has vanished. In fact, the ex-AG Jeff Sessions first act at the Department of Justice was to disband the unit tasked with monitoring and preventing white supremacist crimes. He instead focused it on fighting Islamist attacks in America, of which there is virtually none when compared with the litany of attacks against black, Latino, gay, Muslim and Jewish Americans. This act is an attack on all Americans, and as the numbers of synagogues and mosques burned and defaced, the death count of Black, Latino, Muslim and Jewish American rises, there is an absolute lack of action and an absolute lack of call of action from anyone in the current administration or from Jewish Republicans.

So since this is a letter to Elan Carr, I would like to ask him some questions: what has he done to reduce the number of anti-semitic attacks on Jews by clearly liberal side in New York, Islamists in New Jersey and white-supremacists in Pittsburgh, Jersey City and San Diego. What funding and justice department resources have been allocated to make sure that 2020 is not another record year of synagogues defaced and burned, Jews attacked in New York streets and Jews murdered in kosher stores and synagogues. What funding is there to increase awareness of Jewish Americans and the Holocaust, of which less than 40% are aware of today. And most importantly, as a Czar on antisemitism, how will he handle the antisemitism coming from the White House itself.

 

Bellow is a full list of attacks on Jews in America compiled by ex-antis-Semitism envoy Ira Forman for Moment Institute. If this trend continues and Trump is re-elected, where will we be in 2024?
