Jewish supremacist racists and their Gentile toadies love to use the misnomers "anti-Semitism" and "Anti-Semitic" for a number of reasons, but one is that Sephardic Jews used to be referred to as Semitic Jews. Racist prejudice amongst Ashkenazi not only towards their Gentile neighbours, but also towards the so called Semitic Jews was endemic. Particularly amongst the most educated and elitist Ashkenazi, the Semitic Jews were often seen as "Deplorables" clinging to their backward outdated religious and cultural Semitic practices. Semitic Jews were aware of this and had a tendency to resent it. In fact attitudes of Semitic Jews to Askenazi were often remarkably similar to the attitudes of many moderately anti-Jewish Gentiles.
This resentment by Semitic Jews lingers to do this day, its just force of circumstance in Israel, surrounded by more pressing Muslim enemies forces them to bite their tongues. Anyway this is one reason why Jewish supremacists are so keen to enforce use of the misnomer of anti Semitism, in order to forget this inconvenient history.
Now let me point out, there is no special evil in this. It is entirely normal for Jewish opinion formers to wish to manipulate the public discourse to the advantage of their identity group, with scant concern for the truth. No this has been going on for the last 5000 years, ever since the emergence of multi ethnic, multilingual, polities. No in the same way there was nothing evil about German militarism, they just happened to be good at it. There is nothing evil about Ashkenazi competition in the struggle of identity politics and identity ideological struggle. they just happen to be good at it.
