Anti-Semites and Nazis have found a VERY comfortable home in the current GOP.


Jerusalem Post 
American Politics 


“Jewish people can be beautiful people, but there’s ideologies associated with that that I don’t agree with...Jews today are a remnant of the tribe of Judah that rejected Christ.” 


"A Missouri Republican who has made anti-Semitic and other bigoted statements handily won a primary for the state’s House of Representatives. 

 Steve West, who promotes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on a radio show he hosts, defeated three other candidates Tuesday in the bid for a seat representing Clay County. He won with 49.5 percent of the vote; the second-place finisher had 24.4 percent."

We've read many right-wing blogs and news sites that confirm the sickening reality that anti-Semitism is accepted by Goopers.

Think of the thousands of men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice fighting in WW II against the Nazis and then think about the idiot POTUS. He spends his time whining about African-American athletes exercising their Constitutional right to protest an injustice, but President Porn Star Shagger says nothing about the GOP and its acceptance of Nazi filth into its organization.

I've had a couple of Trump cultists come here to crow about the POTUS's approval numbers. And they do this out of desperation because they actually know how despised President Spanky is by a majority of Americans and by the rest of the civilized world.

#45 is at 40% approval, not 50% -- the fake number his cultists left in my comment section. #45's cultists and family members are possibly bigger liars and charlatans than he is. They're certainly as stupid as #45 is:

Donald Trump Jr. Deletes False Instagram That Claims Father Is More Popular Than Obama

"Donald Trump Jr. deleted a doctored image from his Instagram Friday, which showed his father’s approval rating at 50%. 

 The falsified image originated from a CNN segment that aired on Monday, which compared numbers from the same period in the past two presidencies. 

It showed President Donald Trump’s current 40% approval rating, compared to former president Barack Obama’s 45%, as well as unemployment rates and jobs added.

Trump Jr. posted a doctored image on Wednesday that had a “50%” overlaid on top of Trump’s approval rating. The original 40% figure was still slightly visible over the poorly-doctored 50%. Trump Jr. included the caption, “Amazing. I guess there is a magic wand to make things happen and @realdonaldtrump seems to have it #maga #americafirst."

A liar and cheat -- just like his father.

Most concerning of all is the acceptance of white supremracists and anti Semites by The Giant Orange Turd and what is now His GOP. There has always been bigotry and racism in America to some degree. But to witness in this day and age what is, IMNHO, veiled acceptance of it by the President of this nation is unnerving.

The level of willful ignorance shown by those who continue to support tRump and the GOP is beyond incredulous.

RN, Trump's unwillingness to strongly and loudly denounce the white supremacists and Nazis shows that he and the cultists who support him have no problem with these unsavory, anti-American people.

Nazis and bigots and hate have always found a home in the United States because we have free speech, thank God!

Shaw Kenawe said...

Yes, we have free speech, and we also have the ability to make Nazi-accepting political parties, like the GOP, pay the price by having normal Americans vote their asses out of office. There's free speech (limited) and then there are the consequences of expressing that free speech.

Anonymous said...

That's right, but your writing makes the case that speech shouldn't be allowed at all. Read your own writing.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Wrong, Anonymous.

Produce evidence where I've ever made "the case that speech shouldn't be allowed at all."

Like President Porn Star Shagger, you're making stuff up.

A Republican on social media would not believe (or admit) that the GOP was the party against Jewish people. Even showed him the vast majority of Jewish people vote Democrat

Les Carpenter said...

Anon, the one who wishes to curtail and perhaps even eliminate free speech (at least speech or expression he disapproves of) is The Giant Orange Turd. Listen carefully to his words, observe carefully his actions, and note the dog whistles.

Shaw is a progressive who is quite opinionated. But who isn't. Shaw has never (that I've seen) voiced objection to free speech. But, as she noted free speech has consequences. Which is why free speech, like so many other things must be exercised responsibly.

Yes, thank goodness we have freedom of speech. Letting Nazis rant is part of the price we pay for that, but it's a necessary one.

Very vigorous and even brutal criticism of what someone else says is not censorship. It's the proper response to hate speech in a free society. It doesn't silence the bad guys, it makes use of one's own freedom of speech to counter them.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Infidel753, Anonymous above did not come back and provide evidence for his claim that I don't believe in free speech. Anonymous ignored the link to the USA poll that found HALF of the GOP wants to shut down free speech by letting Trump close news outlets.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Adam, The GOP loves to think that America's Jewish population supports Trump. it doesn't. The far right in Israel does, but that's it.
