In 2017 incidences of anti-Semitism rose at the steepest level since the Anti-Defamation League started tracking it. That number has continued to climb in the last two-and-a-half years leading to incidences such as 11 Jews slaughtered in Temple in Pittsburgh and 1 killed 30 miles away from me at a fellow synagogue. Hum, now what coincided with 2017 and has continued for the last 3 years? You'd have to be a fucking idiot not to recognize the sick hate speech that comes out of this awful person.
You have a president who never came out until way after saying that he was condemning white supremacists. He doesn't want to, because anyone who admires him is okey-doke with him. And I've already explained this before . He said there were fine people on both sides. Let's say you're a fine person with a fine cause and you decide to go down and march. And a bunch of the people in your march are wearing wearing swastikas and other Nazi paraphernalia . Why earth would you get in line and march with them, no matter how wonderful your cause? What a pathetic excuse.
Myself, and the majority of Jews, who are certainly is a most demagogue people in history, know a demagogue when we see one. We know code, we know insinuation, and we see right through this poor excuse for a man. So go screw yourself and your "Chosen One." (remember when they used to mock Obama as our "Messiah"? I don't remember him ever actually saying anything like this putz as he looked to the heavens. You certainly can pick them.
Over and out.
TOM has certainly voiced basically my response. Anyone who can look at what is happening in our government and trying to state that it is within any realm of acceptable - well I don't know what to say anymore.
Yes, I am a liberal Jewish person. I wrote one of the recount lawsuits in the 2000 presidential elections and worked very hard to try to prevent the W presidency from ever occurring but nothing (and that includes trumped up wars that were fought) that took place then threatened our country like what has happened in the last few years. At least the people behind W were not complete morons (despite the fact that I disagreed with them about everything). And the fact that I disagreed with them, did not mean they were willing to sell out the Country for their own ends. That cannot be said for the current administration - which I also told everyone before the 2016 election as I have the misfortune of having to spent a number of years personally dealing with Trump.
Anyone who rationalizes or normalizes what it going on in Washington now will ultimately bear responsibility if things continue to spiral downwards.
