Trump accused Jewish Democrats of “disloyalty” this week. Many have pointed out how dangerous this centuries-old accusation has been, leading to violence and expulsion.

It also destroys movements. Here's a story from US history of the disloyalty accusation against Jews.
Just 8 years after the Holocaust, in 1953, Julius & Ethel Rosenberg, members of the Communist Party, were the first civilians in American history to be executed for espionage.

Many Leftist Jews were terrified about what might happen next.
A little context: It was the Red Scare. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 revoked citizenship from Leftist recent immigrants. The Dennis trials convicted community organizers of treason. Jews, seen as foreign, radical, and conspiratorially powerful, were often targeted.

1. Evangelicals should consider “second coming of God” a gaffe. That’s not how anybody phrases it—you say “Jesus” or “Christ,” not “God,” who, in the form of the Father, transcends and yet fills the earth and never left.

But worse, only Jesus is Jesus, that is, the Messiah.
2. Contrary to what a lot of people are tweeting about evangelicals seeing Trump as their savior, that’s a role they believe only Jesus can fill. Trump can be chosen by God to fulfill a specific calling, like King David or Cyrus the Great. But he can’t be Jesus.
3. So you can be sure that this hinting in that direction will be making a lot of Trump-supporting white evangelicals uncomfortable. It’s similar to when Trump said he never asked God for forgiveness. But like then, they’ll give him a pass now.
