For Clowns Like El Caudillo de Mar a Lago, It Always Gets Back to Blaming the Jews


Donald Trump is an antisemite at his core.

Trump seems to think that his support for Israel means that he can't be antisemitic. That, of course, is bullshit. Trump is supporting Israel because, and only because, his base among the Christian Taliban support Israel. The Christian Taliban supports israel, not out of any love for the Jewish people, but because they believe that the existence of Israel is a prerequisite for starting the "end times", the crap that Christians have been espousing for something like 1,800 years or so. Century after century, they continue to believe that it's just around the corner. They make Cubs fans look like dilettantes.

Anyway, once you decouple the Christian Taliban and Trump's support for Israel, it becomes obvious that they are almost as antisemitic as the neo-Nazis... "the Jews control the mainstream media," "the Jews control the banks," "the Jews control Hollywood," "the Jews have space lasers"... all the whacko shit that they have been espousing for centuries.

That Republicans and conservatives turn a lind eye and a deaf ear to this speaks volumes to their cowardice and lack of moral fibre.

The thing is, every so often, those assholes explode into pogroms or worse. Which is why every Jew should have a passport and a decent firearm.

Fergus: "I went to all of the trouble of pandering to the stereotype of them and they still didn't vote for me, therefore they must hate Israel."
That guy was president. We only survived by his incompetence and our own dumb luck.
Next time we may not be so lucky.

Q-anon is a 21st century Putin propaganda factory rascist fable. A modern rerun of the 19th Russian antisemitic forgery Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Complete with child cannibalism and sex rituals, only this time around it's the evil demoncrats instead of the evil Jews. And tailored to fit simple bigot American minds by data info supplied by an army of well paid Trumpite grifters and traitors. Vlad's social media ratfucking bot armies sure know their stuff. And ours too, cause we ain't got no FBI anymore.

Tod G. If you look up the Internet Research Agency it describes a known Russian troll farm that uses people's natural bias to sow discord. People with some critical thinking skills can suppress their own bias's and see through the propaganda. MAGATs and others before and like them don't seem to have this ability or the willingness to use it. Plus a good book to read is Voyage Of The Damned about a ship full of Jews who were trying to escape the Nazis in 1939.
