In an effort to encourage Jewish people to abandon the Democratic Party, model Elizabeth Pipko started the Exodus Movement, which accused the political party of having a problem with anti-Semitism.
A Pew Research poll found 87 percent of Jewish voters cast ballots for Democratic candidates in the 2018 midterms, but the Democratic Party and its members have faced repeated criticism for fostering anti-Semitic sentiments. At a recent event, President Donald Trump said Democrats were advancing the “most extreme, anti-Semitic agenda in history.”
The Exodus Movement is a group of Jewish Americans who “reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism of the rising far left,” according to the website. It claimed progressives and Democrats took Jewish American support for granted, and members were done aligning themselves with “allegedly supportive liberals” who sided with their enemies and disregarded their values and beliefs.
“[The Democrats’] failure to condemn the anti-Semitism—there’s a lot of things that are happening in our country that are proving how divided we are, and I thought it was time to unite people of similar beliefs,” Pipko, the founder and president of Exodus Movement, told Fox News. “Any time you turn on the TV, you’re told that you’re wrong if you disagree with what [the Democrats are] telling you. You’re told that you’re wrong if you’re religious in any way, and I thought it was time to unite those people.”
Before founding Exodus Movement, the 23-year-old served as a campaign staffer for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. However, she didn’t go public with her work for Trump until January of this year, out of fear that it would cost her her career as a model.
