As the left tries to place blame on the deadly Pittsburgh synagogue shooting on President Trump, even though the suspect is an anti-Semitic critic of the president, liberals are coming out of the woodwork to attack conservative Jews with ugly rhetoric.

Franklin Foer, a Jewish writer for the left-leaning magazine The Atlantic, wrote a piece immediately after the shooting condemning Jewish Trump supporters, claiming they’re complicit in attacks on their own community, and calling for them to be shunned and barred from their own synagogues.

“Any strategy for enhancing the security of American Jewry should involve shunning Trump’s Jewish enablers,” Foer concluded in his piece. “Their money should be refused, their presence in synagogues not welcome. They have placed their community in danger.

And then a fellow journalist for The Atlantic and GQ, Julia Ioffe, shared her own startling opinion on Twitter, writing, “And a word to my fellow American Jews: This president makes this possible. Here. Where you live. I hope the embassy move over there, where you don’t live was worth it.”

Ioffe was born to a Russian Jewish family. The vast majority of people replying to her comment on Twitter didn’t appreciate it:

It’s not been revealed yet what the shooting suspect’s views on the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem are. 46-year-old Robert Bowers has himself been heavily critical of Trump, blasting him for being a “globalist” and allowing an “infestation” of the U.S. by Jews, the UK’s Mirror reported. Despite being allegedly inspired by the president’s rhetoric, Bowers has made it clear that he is no Trump supporter.

"For the record, I did not vote for him nor have I owned, worn or even touched a MAGA hat," he wrote in a post lambasting Trump.

Ioffe felt compelled to apologize on Monday after claiming on CNN’s “The Lead” with Jake Tapper that "This president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”

"I think the president has far more supporters who espouse an equally hateful ideology," she also said before saying she was sorry — sort of.
