White house faces 'Backlash' Cancelling 'Hanukkah'..... Is CHRISTMAS far behind?

“The White House has faced backlash over its response to cancellations of public celebrations of Hanukkah”.

Speaking during a briefing earlier today, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre said “every action” had been taken in attempting to make sure the Jewish community feels safe amid an uptick in antisemitism and cancellations of Hanukkah celebrations in the U.S. She added: “We have seen an uptick in hate, just more broadly, in different communities—obviously, also in the Muslim community. And so, we will do everything that we can to make sure that these communities feel safe.”

The response caused some ire on social media and criticism that Jean-Pierre criticized the rise in Islamophobia in response to a question about antisemitism.

Referring to the beginning of the Israel-Hamas war on October 7, Jean-Pierre said: “Obviously, over the past couple of weeks since this—certainly since this war started, we have seen the increase of antisemitism. You know, we understand the fear that people in the Jewish community must be feeling right now, which is why we have taken action to do everything that we can to make sure that people in that community feel protected. And so, that’s what we’re going to continue to do.”

Currently, the White House has not revealed its plans to mark Hanukkah this year. Newsweek has approached the White House for further comment.

In March this year, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said levels of antisemitism in the US were already at record highs since it began recording them in 1979. Incidents of vandalism, harassment and assault increased by nearly a third in 2022.

“The White House isn’t alone in feeling the backlash from the decision to cancel Hanukkah celebrations. There was an outcry in Virginia this week when a Hanukkah celebration was canceled. A ceremonial lighting of a menorah was due to take place at the 2nd Sundays Art and Music Festival in Williamsburg, Virginia, but it was canceled by the festival founder because it felt “inappropriate” due to the ongoing situation between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.”

My question is when did America become the ‘JEW HUNTER’ or ‘Great Hater of OUR ALLIES?’
‘Are there no work houses? are there no prisons?’—Scrooge!

Why have Americans enjoy anything!

Why should cancellation of Hanukkah surprise anyone?

Our nation is motivated by fear. We’re afraid of terrorists with bombs in their underpants which is why millions of Americans willingly line up for a 4th Amendment violating warrantless search of their person by government agents as a precondition to boarding an airplane or entering many public buildings. Sad.

I don’t understand the reasoning at all. Pure double speak. “To protect Jews and Muslims we are canceling Hanukkah”. I guess Hamas just canceled Hanukkah at the White House with its attacks on Israel. The Biden Administration is trying to appease both sides of a war at this point. Disgusting. No wonder the USA is no longer respected.

P.S. How does canceling Hanukkah at the White House keep Jews safe? From what may I ask?

Biden and Co. are fools. Everyone with a single, functioning brain cell remaining knows that by trying to please everyone, the inevitable result is that you please no one.

And in Kalifornorski! BREAKING NEWS!

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) is a failure in many ways, and he added a new embarrassment to his record by saying that the state could not keep people safe from pro-terrorist protesters at a Christmas tree lighting.

Newsom canceled the 92nd annual Sacramento Christmas tree lighting and relegated the live performances to being streamed online because “pro-Palestinian” (read: pro-Hamas) protesters were planning a protest. Rather than acting like a real governor and guaranteeing that violent protesters would be arrested and prosecuted and that all people would be protected, Newsom decided to cancel the ceremony instead.

Democrat Lawmaker Suggests Sending Migrant Criminals To The Military© Provided by State Of The Union

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois proposed giving citizenship in exchange for military service to undocumented immigrants, arguing it would enhance national security.

This idea has been heavily criticized, with concerns raised regarding the potential risks of arming individuals who have illegally entered the country, including those with criminal backgrounds or ties to terrorism.

“Do you know what the recruiting numbers are at the Army, Navy, and the Air Force? They can’t reach their quotas each month. They can’t find enough people to join our military forces,” the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman stated…

Yes lets arm them! well the ones that aren’t ALRADY armed! Train 'em up! That way we Quadruple the Military 1/2 woke, DEI, Flaggetts/Half Know Terrorists on watch lists, then have them patrol our streets
looking for Infractions of the sheeple, Curfews and Illegal activity: Shopping, Bars, having ANy fun, entertainment at all! They PROMISE it won’t get bad (for us) and .gov hair Gel is the new resident…I can see it already.Give them all F15’s!

East Room of the White House, Dec. 1, 2021.

WASHINGTON — US President Joe Biden will condemn growing antisemitism in his remarks at the White House Hanukkah reception on Monday, which will also include a candle lighting and blessing.

The Democratic president will tell guests at the night event that silence is complicity, according to White House officials, and will add that it’s imperative that hate, violence and antisemitism are condemned.
