This Democrat councilman just posted the weirdest claim on Facebook and now he’s backtracking.
A Washington D.C. Councilman, Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8), posted a video on Facebook on Friday that had some bizarre claims.
But let’s back up a bit and figure out who this guy is.
Watch Trayon White’s campaign video — try to look past the music, the bowtie, and poor video production to what he’s trying to say:
Not so bad, right?
He’s pushing education.
I can get on board with that.
He has worked with seniors.
He worked with inner city kids in a mentorship program.
He has founded a spiritual support group for young men called ‘Brothas in Christ’, as well as a leadership group for men.
Right on, man!
You know what’s not in that campaign video?
That he believes that it’s rich Jewish bankers that are manipulating the weather to take over cities.
That was seriously the claim.
From the now-removed Facebook video:
Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation. And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.
Don’t worry, the internet is forever, and we have a copy of the original post here:
Democrat D.C. councilman Trayon White Sr. blames the Jews for the snow D.C. last week, claims it's a conspiracy for them to take over cities.

The Washington Post broke the story and explains the conspiracy:
The Rothschilds are a famous European business dynasty descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, an 18th-century Jewish banker who lived in what is today Frankfurt, Germany. The family has repeatedly been subject over the years to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories alleging that they and other Jews clandestinely manipulate world events for their advantage.
That’s pretty nuts.
The Anti-Defamation League reported last month that anti-Semitic incidents in the District more than doubled in 2017, compared with 2015. That follows a similar escalation nationwide.
White did not return calls for comment. In a series of text messages, he confirmed the voice in the video is his but expressed surprise that his remarks might be construed as anti-Semitic. Asked to clarify what he meant, he wrote, “The video says what it says.”
However, about four hours after The Washington Post published this story online Sunday, White sent a statement of apology via text message.

White has since issued an apology.
I really do apologize. I work very closely with the Jewish community and never want to offend anyone, especially with Anti-Semitic remarks. pic.twitter.com/TvUgf55UeF

A former state education board member, White represents the District’s poorest ward—once the base of Marion Barry, his mentor. He was elected in 2016 after losing a 2015 special election to fill Barry’s seat. He has distinguished himself as a loyal Ward 8 advocate.
Jews United for Justice, a progressive advocacy group based in D.C., wrote in a tweet that it spoke with White “about how his comments played into the long history of antisemitism.” “We look forward to working with him toward deeper understanding of antisemitism and toward our collective liberation,” JUFJ wrote.

I think we can all agree that a little anti-Semitic activism is what’s needed in Councilman White’s Ward right now.
He’s pushed for equality and racial integration his entire career, right?
Either Councilman White takes the lead to make some change in the community or the community should take the lead and make a change when the election rolls around.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
