Things People Blame the Jews For, Volume LIII: The Suicide of Jeffrey Epstein

Accused pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein has died in prison of an apparent suicide.

Given how connected Epstein was to a huge array of powerful political, economic, and cultural figures, this obviously was going to raise eyebrows. And since Epstein was Jewish, well ... let's let the Nation of Islam kick us off:


Meanwhile, a "satire" account that supposedly is imitating "SJW" leftists posted and then eventually deleted a tweet about how the Epstein's suicide was orchestrated by "other '-steins' and '-bergs' dispensing justice." Ironic antisemitism is still antisemitism. And of course, the neo-Nazi right is having a field day (this thread is sickening).

Indeed, almost immediately on Epstein's arrest one already was seeing folks salivating at the chance to tie him to the Jews. Steven Salaita, for example, rushed to get on the train:
Image may contain: text that says 'Steven Salaita @stevesalaita Jul 10 This seems like a good time to mention that Jeffrey Epstein (along with Leslie Wexner) funded Rosovsky Hall, the building that houses Harvard Hillel. It's named for a former FAS dean with deep ties to Epstein. 4 42 127'

I bet it does seem like a good time, Steven.

He was joined by journalist Sarah Abdallah ...

 ... and of course the cranks at MintPressNews:
Fortunately, President Trump -- ever the friend of the Jews -- has not endorsed this conspiracy theory, favoring instead the other conspiracy theory that the Clintons took him out.
