Flack chose only to keep blaming the Muslim Brotherhood.
The leader of the Muslim Brotherhood was an admirer of Hitler, that's all Flake needs to launch a hatred campaign.

Let's see when he talks about Henry Ford, another ardent admirer of Hitler's, whose Ford Factories in Germany became part of the German War Machine. Panzers came out of Ford's factories.

Or Charles Lindbergh, another admirer of Adolf Hitler.

How about IBM working with Germany through out the entire war, helping them tabulate the number of concentration camp victims kiled.

None of it could have been done without IBM's machines, sold to Germany during the war.

Or GM, whose German factories produced weapons of war for Germany.

You want to talk about people who admired and helped Hitler, I've got a long list of Americans, most of them Repugnants.

Ya want to talk shit, go for it. I'll bury you, ya freakin' hillbilly.

""Ford and GM Scrutinized for Alleged Nazi Collaboration"

"Three years after Swiss banks became the target of a worldwide furor over their business dealings with Nazi Germany, major American car companies find themselves embroiled in a similar debate.

Like the Swiss banks, the American car companies have vigorously denied that they assisted the Nazi war machine or that they significantly profited from the use of forced labor at their German subsidiaries during World War II. But historians and lawyers researching class-action suits on behalf of former prisoners of war are busy amassing evidence of collaboration by the automakers with the Nazi regime.

The issues at stake for the American automobile corporations go far beyond the relatively modest sums involved in settling any lawsuit. During the war, the car companies established a reputation for themselves as "the arsenal of democracy" by transforming their production lines to make airplanes, tanks and trucks for the armies that defeated Adolf Hitler. They deny that their huge business interests in Nazi Germany led them, wittingly or unwittingly, to also become "the arsenal of fascism."

The Ford Motor Co. has mobilized dozens of historians, lawyers and researchers to fight a civil case brought by lawyers in Washington and New York who specialize in extracting large cash settlements from banks and insurance companies accused of defrauding Holocaust victims. Also, a book scheduled for publication next year will accuse General Motors Corp. of playing a key role in Hitler's invasions of Poland and the Soviet Union.

"General Motors was far more important to the Nazi war machine than Switzerland," said Bradford Snell, who has spent two decades researching a history of the world's largest automaker. "Switzerland was just a repository of looted funds. GM was an integral part of the German war effort. The Nazis could have invaded Poland and Russia without Switzerland. They could not have done so without GM."

Both General Motors and Ford insist that they bear little or no responsibility for the operations of their German subsidiaries, which controlled 70 percent of the German car market at the outbreak of war in 1939 and rapidly retooled themselves to become suppliers of war materiel to the German army.

But documents discovered in German and American archives show a much more complicated picture. In certain instances, American managers of both GM and Ford went along with the conversion of their German plants to military production at a time when U.S. government documents show they were still resisting calls by the Roosevelt administration to step up military production in their plants at home."

Students at Johns Hopkins University’s medical school are circulating a petition to replace Dr. Benjamin Carson as their commencement speaker after the famed neurosurgeon linked gay marriage to pedophilia and bestiality in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
The petition, which was posted on a Facebook page for the student-run Health and Human Rights Student Group, describes Carson as “a world-class neurosurgeon and passionate advocate for education,” but concludes that his “expressed values are incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins and deeply offensive to a large proportion our student body.”

You equated being born homosexual is the same as being born a pedophile.

Homosexuality, consenting relationships between two people is not the same as molesting children. Gay marriage involves equal rights. There is nothing evil about it.

Jay Rockefeller Wants The FCC to Regulate The Internet “For The Children”
In a pathetic attempt to push regulation onto the internet and the alternative media, globalist Jay Rockefeller has been hosting events and political discussions to promote FCC regulation of the internet.
As many have been predicting he is using “the children” as cover and disguising this power grab as a preventative measure against “cyber bullying”.
One can only imagine how long it would be after FCC regulation that a Rockefeller would accuse various youtubers or bloggers of being “cyber bullies” and force them to remove their content until there is no more negative press left about them on the internet.

The depths of denial by liberals is astonishing.

Do you deny Obamacare is a tax law with unknown costs and punitive fines?

Do you deny government overstepping its boundaries in the free market leads to governement dependency?

Do you deny the increase in jobs in not building a pipeline and tapping into our own natural resources?

Do you deny the government is wasting taxpayers' money and dragging butt to reform entitlement programs?

Do you deny MSNBC's report of a 70% surge in government dependency since 2008 on food stamps?

Rev. James Martin, S.J. Catholic priest and author

It's Not About Homosexuality: Blaming the Wrong People for the Sexual Abuse Crisis

First of all, nearly every reputable psychologist and psychiatrist definitively rejects the conflation of homosexuality with pedophilia, as well as any cause-and-effect relationship. The studies are almost too numerous to mention. Pedophilia, say experts, is more a question of a stunted (or arrested) sexuality, more a question of power, and more a question of proximity (among many other complicated psychological factors). Simply put, being gay does not make one a pedophile.

Indeed, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops commissioned an extensive independent study in the wake of the American abuse crisis in 2002, undertaken by the prestigious John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. Last year, Margaret Smith, a researcher from John Jay, reported to the bishops, "What we are suggesting is that the idea of sexual identity be separated from the problem of sexual abuse. At this point, we do not find a connection between homosexual identity and the increased likelihood of subsequent abuse from the data that we have right now."

Second, there is an even stronger argument against the conflation of homosexuality and pedophilia: the lived experience of emotionally mature and psychologically healthy gay men (and women) who have never, ever abused a child; are not tempted to do so; are not attracted to children at all; and would, in short, never think of doing so. Being gay does not make one a pedophile.

That is why two days after Cardinal Bertone's comments, the Rev. Marcus Stock, the general secretary of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, released a statement saying, "To the best of my knowledge, there is no empirical data which concludes that sexual orientation is connected to child sexual abuse. The consensus among researchers is that the sexual abuse of children is not a question of sexual 'orientation', whether heterosexual or homosexual, but of a disordered attraction or 'fixation.'"

Whereas you're a complete idiot.\\

you mention pedophelia in the same breath as homosexuality.

One is a crime, the other is a Civil Rights issue.

You're really pig headed, you were a staunch Rmoney supporter, proving Mormon bigotry is fine with you.

But both Rmoney and you lost, and the American people have declared you both to be irrelevant.

Sorry if the truth hurts you. You live in an alternate universe.

Although the majority of clergy abuse victims are males, homosexuality cannot be blamed. First, many of the pedophile priests report that they are not homosexual. This is also true of many non-clergy sex offenders who victimize boys. Many report that they target boys for a variety of reasons that include easier access to boys ... pregnancy fears with female victims ... homosexuals in general have not been found to be more likely to commit sexual crimes against minors compared to heterosexuals. Sexual orientation is not predictive of sex crimes.

Your name is registered. You said this

"I see where Waxturd has stolen my name."

Now you are saying your name cannot be stolen.

I've tried to have a cyber crime investigated. Local law enforcement are clueless how to proceed. If you go to the your local law enforcement with an IP address out of their jurisdiction, they will tell you the crime was committed outside their jurisdiction, if you call the PD where the Ip was registered, they will tell you it's your local law enforcements problem. No one wants to deal with it.
