Young Activist Starts Group Calling on Young Jews to Leave Democratic Party


A young activist and former model has started a group urging Jews to leave the Democratic party over antisemitism.

The group, Jexodus, run by Elizabeth Pipko, shot to fame yesterday when President Donald Trump cited it in a tweet.

Appearing on the show Fox and Friends, Pipko said, "“We left Egypt and now we’re leaving the Democratic Party.”

Referring to antisemitic congresswoman Ilhan Omar's recent racist remarks against Jews, Pipko said, “The scariest part was not the original anti-Semitism. It was the lack of leadership coming into play when they were supposed to condemn what had happened and they failed. When the leadership fails to condemn that, they are a party of anti-Semitism.”

Jexodus purports to be a group of Jewish millenials "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," the group adds.

Trump recently asserted that the Democrats are “anti-Israel,” “anti-Jewish,” and “hate Jewish people.”
