Biden Refuses to Criticize Blake’s Father’s Anti-Semitism

September 4, 2020

The Joe Biden campaign has refused to criticize the father of Jacob Blake, a black man shot by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for posting numerous anti-Semitic messages on his social media accounts, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Biden met with Blake’s family on Thursday in Kenosha to discuss racism and police violence in America. Even before the meeting, multiple anti-Semitic posts on Facebook by Jacob Blake Sr. came to light in which he excoriated the “Jewish media” and claimed they “control the interest rate [and] control the media they control Minds and money.” In another post, he wrote, “A Jew can’t tell me shit period.” In another, he said, “The Jewish media picks and chooses who is a terrorists and is not.” In yet another, he wrote, “A cracker jew can do whatever to a white woman for years but let a jig try it.”

In other posts from 2017 to 2019, Blake Sr. also asserted that he stood with notoriously anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Neither Biden nor his campaign has publicly denounced this open anti-Semitism. They have not respond to multiple requests for comment from the Washington Free Beacon. Biden’s Jewish outreach director also did not respond to requests for a comment.
