Americans I can kind of understand supporting him. They’re pretty stupid after all. But for the rest of the world, what excuse can you have for thinking the guy is anything less than a clown?if you react that way you probably are yes..... especially if you aren't even american.....
Fair enough, I can’t argue with you there and completely agree with the comments about us having enough of our own idiots.Who says you have to either support or hate him? I don't particularly like or trust him but he has done nothing to cause hate. I also don't know him so I don't have a dog in the fight in any way. We have more important clowns at home to worry about without obsessing over "foreign devils" as if our opinions actually matter in the least. No american president in the last 50 years has been a honourable individual at all... what makes this one so special other than that he callously does not care about subjective feelings? The hate makes no logical sense.
He is foolish at times but in no way an idiot, there is a difference. Unlike others he is not playing the long game, he's in it to make his mark and then exit like he's always done, it's his nature.But hey, I don’t hate him, I don’t anything him. I just think he’s an idiot.
Asking religion to be logical...? Anyway, from what I understand Jews returning to Israel is required for the end times to happen - apparently that is something certain evangelicals are really keen on.A lot of antisemitism makes no logical sense in general just as a lot of prosemitism does not make logical sense. Why would a Christian that is doctrinally sound politically support a state of Israel that never re-embraced God? Especially when the support seems unconditional? I don't begrudge them a state but no one's hands are clean over there, they have their share of sins. Even the Arabs are begrudgingly starting to accept them in the face of actual (mostly other Arab) threats.
Like Obama?The left don't. Certain leftists do.
As in he doesn't actually like Trump, he just believes, as do the Left, that Trump will destroy America, and he likes that idea.I like how you cut off part of the quote. "Donald Trump? ... I like Trump. He'll take America to hell in a rocket ship,"
Yeah, he does.
“The nature of this administration is good for us. Trump is destroying every enemy that was an enemy of our rise.”
To be fair, he tempered it a bit: “Not that I’m for Mr. Trump,” he added, “but I like what I’m looking at.”
Some influential conservatives agree.
Any good religion MUST have a logical core, it's deviance from that core that gets people into trouble.Asking religion to be logical...? Anyway, from what I understand Jews returning to Israel is required for the end times to happen - apparently that is something certain evangelicals are really keen on.
The low turnout at last weekend’s Women’s March suggest that it’s a busted flush. Not for its founders who, moving from the long march to big merch, are trademarking the name and turning a decentralized popular movement into a political program and commercial opportunity. But for the hundreds of thousands of women who, having taken part for the best of reasons, are now being exploited for the worst of motives.
A movement ostensibly dedicated to equality turns out to have been founded and led by bigots. Some women are willing to excuse racism, especially if they are guilty liberals and the racism is veiled in Linda Sarsour’s kind of anti-Zionism, which advances political profanities in the language of human rights. Other women see no racism when it comes to intersectional class war; like Carmen Perez, who calls Jews the collective ally of white nationalism. And some women are positively enthusiastic about racism, like Tamika Mallory, admirer of Louis Farrakhan. But most Americans, it seems, are neither racists nor socialists. So the Women’s March is in crisis, because many women won’t allow themselves to be marched, and to be ridden from the lunatic fringe to the political center.
It’s the patriarchy’s fault, of course. Especially the patriarch of black American politics, the odious and ludicrous Louis Farrakhan. For the last three years, we’ve heard constantly that Donald Trump is a fascist and a racist, and that the ‘it’ in It Couldn’t Happen Here is about to happen here. Meanwhile, the ‘it’ already has happened here, for decades.
Remind you of anyone? Of course it does. The Nation of Islam is a 20th-century national-socialist race cult. According to Keith Ellison, it ‘organizes by sowing hatred and division, including anti-Semitism, homophobia, and a chauvinistic model of manhood’. Ellison knows whereof he speaks, because he used to be a member. These days, he’s sunk even lower, and is vice-chair of the DNC.
So why did the Women’s March invite Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam — anti-white, anti-Jewish, anti-gay, anti-liberal — into what was supposed to be an interracial movement opposed to racism and sexism?
The answer is legitimacy. The Women’s March needed to look universal. Unlike white nationalists, the Nation of Islam enjoys massive popular sympathy among its designated master race, and tacit approval from the political party in whose shadow it lurks. When Steve King opens his mouth, his fellow Republicans rush for the exits. When Farrakhan calls Jews ‘termites’ and praises Hitler, Democrats either say nothing or, as Barack Obama did, line up for a photo.
Tamika Mallory was there last October when Farrakhan said, ‘I’m not anti-semite, I’m anti-termite,’ and accused Jews of fomenting homosexuality among black men. Afterwards, Mallory tweeted out that Farrakhan is ‘The G.O.A.T.’ — not a bleating dimwit, but ‘The Greatest of All Time’. Mallory repeated this on The View last week: Farrakhan is ‘the greatest of all time because of what he’s done in black communities’.
Rahm Emanuel has also said this, so it must be true. In 2012, Emanuel said that Nation of Islam patrols were an ‘important ingredient’ in ‘protecting a neighborhood’. That meets the second of Robert Paxton’s ‘five stages of fascism’, then one where a fascist group goes from ‘intellectual exploration’ — the Jews are lizard men from outer space who control the FBI — to ‘rooting’, in which the group exploits political deadlock and enters the mainstream.
I'm not saying he has done anything evil, I'm saying he is an idiot.He is foolish at times but in no way an idiot, there is a difference. Unlike others he is not playing the long game, he's in it to make his mark and then exit like he's always done, it's his nature.
And other than generally saying what everyone non-leftist is thinking... what has he actually DONE that's so evil?
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s ties to anti-Semitism run deeper than previously known, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.Tlaib, part of a heralded freshman class of House Democrats, has already come under scrutiny over her positions on Israel and ties to fringe figures. But TheDCNF’s investigation uncovered additional ties to anti-Semitism.
Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group “Palestinian American Congress,” where members often demonize Jews. The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.In January 2018, Abdel-qader shared an anti-Semitic video that claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media.
The video, which described Jews as “satanic,” also questioned whether 6 million Jews actually died in the Holocaust.“Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew,” the video’s narrator says. Abdel-qader shared the video both on his personal Facebook page and within the group that now includes Tlaib.
https://dailycaller.com/2019/01/28/rashida-tlaib-anti-semitism-ties/In March 2018, Tlaib presented Abdel-qader with a medal showing her appreciation for his help with the campaign, according to Voices of New York, a project of the City University of New York (CUNY). She posted multiple pictures of herself with Abdel-qader on Facebook during the campaign and emphasized how important his support was to her.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/08/opinion/sunday/israel-progressive-anti-semitism.htmlIt happened again last month in Detroit. Pro-Palestinian demonstrators seized the stage of the National L.G.B.T.Q. Task Force’s marquee conference, “Creating Change” and demanded a boycott of Israel. “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” they chanted — the tediously malign, thinly veiled call to end Israel as a Jewish state.
They were met with sustained applause by the audience at what is the largest annual conference of L.G.B.T.Q. activists in the United States. Conference organizers did nothing to stop the disruption or disavow the demonstrators.
For Tyler Gregory, neither the behavior of the protesters nor the passivity of the organizers came as a surprise. Gregory is executive director of A Wider Bridge, a North American L.G.B.T.Q. organization that works to support Israel and its gay community. In 2016, his group hosted a reception at the Task Force’s conference in Chicago. The event was mobbed by some 200 aggressive demonstrators, and Gregory and his audience had to barricade themselves in their room while those outside were harassed.
“Whether you believe in the concept of intersectionality is beside the point,” Gregory told me recently, referring to the idea that the oppression of one group is the oppression of all others. “If this is your value system, you are not following it. As Jews we were denied our safe space. We were denied our place in a movement that fights bigotry.”
I never fail to be amazed that somehow the world has Israel as the bad guys.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/08/opinion/sunday/israel-progressive-anti-semitism.html
I take it the L.G.B.T.Q. community is thriving the Palestinian territories.....
If there is one group that should throw their support behind Israel, it is LGB.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/08/opinion/sunday/israel-progressive-anti-semitism.html
