Model Elizabeth Pipko: ‘Jexodus’ Helps Jewish Millennials Leave the Antisemitic Left

...Jexodus describes itself on its website:
We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left. Progressives, Democrats, and far too many old-school Jewish organizations take our support for granted. After all, we’re Jewish, and Jews vote for Democrats.

Until today.

We are determined and we are unafraid to speak for ourselves. As combatants and veterans of the campus wars, we know the threat progressivism poses to Jews. We’ve had front row seats witnessing anti-Semites hide behind the thin veil of anti-Zionism. We know the BDS movement harbors deep hatred not only for Israel, but for Jews. We’re done standing with supposed Jewish leaders and allegedly supportive Democrats who rationalize, mainstream, and promote our enemies. We’d rather spend forty years wandering in the desert than belong to a party that welcomes Jew-haters.
Pollak invited Pipko’s comment on House Democrats’ postponement of a proposed resolution opposing antisemitism.

“I think even the vote was a small effort in pretending that they cared [about antisemitism],” assessed Pipko. “There has been such an outrage in the media and among Republicans in Congress, and everyone that surrounds them, but I don’t feel any strong effort. I actually feel it’s getting worse since the Obama presidency, so I’m not really believing that it’s going to happen or that it’s going to change anything.”
