In response to antisemitic white nationalist attack, Vice President Mike Pence opens campaign event with a Christian Rabbi.
He begins by promoting that people in power are ordained by Jesus to wield power.
Then, rather than praying for the victims and survivors of the Pittsburgh synagogue attack, Mike Pence's Christian Rabbi prays --by name-- for each Republican candidate on a list given to him.
This is no mistake. It's a message.
Normally, a Rabbi would open with Kaddish, a prayer for the dead - and list names of those taken. And blessings to the community at risk, Jews, immigrants, etc. Here, it is instead a prayer for Republican candidates to win on November 6 and a blessing for Mike Pence.
You see, they need to placate Jews and allies who support them without alienating their white nationalist base.

When Trump first spoke about the synagogue attack, he opened with a joke about how he almost cancelled cause his hair got wet. Then tweeted all night about baseball.
Now, even in inviting this speaker - they literally use it to coopt our holiest traditions - things Jews have been murdered for practicing - and using it to step on the dead. This is no mistake, it's a message to their base. Their intention is a Christian nation by any means.
If you read the killer's messages on social, he thought Trump was giving into Jews too much, and other white nationalists comforted him that Trump had to string along Jews for a while in order to do it right. This is history again.
Over at Fox News, here is a cut of all the laughter the hosts had with side conversations during a segment about the Synagogue killings and pipe bombs. Republicans are really good at messaging to their base.
Over in Iowa, an openly white nationalist Republican @SteveKingIA tricked a holocaust memorial fund to pay for his trip to meet Nazis in Austria. The GOP has refused to comment. He is no minor player, a favorite of Paul Ryan.…
Jews aren't going to sit still. Jews in Pittsburgh have warned Trump that he isn't welcomed there until he disavows white nationalism.…
And tomorrow, Tuesday, stay tuned to my feed for a surprise.
Related news: Berkshire Hathaway's @WarrenBuffett (Heinz/Duracell/Kraft/Geico) refuses to stop funding @SteveKingIA for his white nationalism and stealing holocaust money to meet Nazis.

Fun fact: Buffett's $700B company was seeded by two Holocaust survivors who believed in him.
In addition to being anti-semitic, @ZackKopplin reminds us that it's illegal for a house of worship to enjoy their IRS tax exemptions while supporting candidates. Destroying that protection is, however, also on the Trump/Pence promise list.

So, after the event, Pence was forced to bring the "Rabbi" out to actually pray for #TreeOfLife victims and not just Republican candidate elections. He did. To Jesus Christ. And @VP Mike Pence thanked him while pushing him off stage.
This clip now disproves @VP Mike Pence's claim that he had no idea and his attempt to blame it on a Jewish Republican. The video shows them praying to Jesus Christ.

The founder of Women for Trump thinks this thread is pro Pence. 🤦‍♂️
Since Mike Pence's "Rabbi" couldn't care to read the names of the #TreeofLife dead (he prayed for Republican candidates) we went to the Metropolitan Republican Club and read them before they called the police to arrest us mid prayer.
The @metgopclub invited violent white nationalist proud boys but when we came peacefully to sing Jewish mourner's kaddish, they had us arrested. We demanded they come down and denounce white nationalism. They refused. #WeAreHere #EndWhiteNationalism
Wow, even his Church defrocked him. Only the best people.
