US Jewish criticism of Trump expands to some supporters
Ivanka Trump's rabbi denounced President Donald Trump for blaming "both sides" in a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, as the number of American Jewish leaders willing to criticize him grew. Rabbi Haskel Lookstein of Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, and other rabbis from the prominent modern Orthodox synagogue in Manhattan, said in a Facebook message late Wednesday that they were "deeply troubled by the moral equivalency and equivocation" of Trump's reaction.

Liberal self-hating Jews always supported those who seek their demise which explain why the liberal Elite Israel-hating NY Times loved Hitler during WWII. Evidently, while only President Trump called it Jihadist Mozlem Brother attack in Barcelona while the liberal socialists and communists of the Democratic Party as well as the Spanish socialistic leadership called it murder without referring to the Shariya pig attack on innocents as rewarded by the Jihadist pigs for killing the Christians and Jews among others who ae the enemies of the Shariya Allah. The Jihadist murderer born in Spain to Moroccan family was educated to kill as many innocent women and children as possible for a sexual reward in heaven with 72 virgins in addition to becoming hero of the Mozlem Brother community with payment to his family for lifetime paid by American taxpayers to the Palestinian Hamas terrorist and to their families since Obama and Hillary transferred money since 2009 to the killers of Jews in Israel. Clearly, the jihadist murderous attack on innocent people is based on the Shariya rules that glorify the killing as the biggest Mitzvah ever. Nevertheless, the liberal Democratic Party thugs led by Hillary and Jihadist elite Keith Ellison will never criticize the Shariya pigs order to kill Jews and Christians.

Trump is too busy humiliating his staffers.
Look at John Kelly hanging his head while Trump just digs a really big hole.
Looks like Trump hires people and then makes it impossible for them to do their jobs.

The videos of what happened in Charlettesville are available. There is no excuse for not having researched what happened. The Leftists and anarchists were there illegally. They started all violence, just as they have in universities to keep others from their rights to speak. Misrepresenting the gathering as extremist because a small sampling of radical elements showed up has nothing to do with the violence perpetrated by the Left. If the paid Leftists from other cities hadn't shown up with the intent to cause violence, then actually initiating violence, there would have been no violence.

Nazis should not be allowed to speak unchecked!
Nazis should be protested.
It would have been nice had people protested Nazis in 1933.
Maybe we wouldn't be dealing with this mess now!

The reality is the Nazis rose to power in Germany because of the same violent antics of Communists and anarchists in the streets then. The violence we see today from you Leftist thugs is no only related to Nazis. You violently impose all sorts of distorted nonsense on America and have become increasingly violent in your distorted riots and assaults on free speech. Any increase in Nazi type influence is your fault. Communists have always been much worse than any reaction to them.

..and yet he's been very successful in business.
Granted, Trump has had it easy. He was born into wealth and has abused the rules for his own profit. He does have a method. What everyone needs to accept is that he's forcing a change in politics that has gone off the tracks in recent years due to indulgent fantasies of "victimization". People are fighting back against his reforms and that should be expected.
The real test is whether or not the country can accept their responsibilities again. This could be done by a liberal or a conservative, but it has to happen or we will collapse in the coming years. Trump has already done the essentials of demonstrating the need for reform. The country still has not responded with a responsible alternative.
There is no "Better Deal". What's required is tough choices, accountability and teamwork, not an advertising campaign and not yet another round of shaving the sheep instead of confronting the greed of the wealthy. If Trump loses his momentum, the country will quickly withdraw into a childish pretense of autistic victimization. We can't be a country of autistics. We need some adults again. Bet the farm on your victim lifestyle and you WILL become one, and deservedly so.

And it was that rise you're discussing of the vile Nazi filth that the United States went into Germany expressly to wipe Nazis from the face of the earth. Unfortunately we missed some of the roots of Nazism. Nothing we will not correct shortly.
Now in 2017 and with the embolden neo-Nazi resurgence in the United States and being a crucial element within the Republican party it appears that to make America safe the United States apparatus of law enforcement and homeland security will have no choice other that to commence upon the complete extermination of the Nazi enemy within the United States.

BANKRUPTCY is Trump's method for staying above water.
Sending his businesses overseas is also another tactic.
Hiring people from other countries to be housekeeping staff for his clubs paying very low wages is another.
Harassing banks and delaying payments, yet another.
He has not shown the People of the United States his tax returns. So nobody can truly judged his real worth or if he paid any taxes.
Using accountants and lawyers to skirt paying your fair share doe snot make you "brilliant" it makes you a hypocrite.
People who earn $50,000 pay more percentage wise in taxes than Trump and his wealthy friends do.
Why should you pay 20% of your hard earned wages while Trump and his friends pay 5%?
This "trickle down" concept has been in place since Reagan and it has not created more jobs.
Trump has no plan, he just sold you a big FAT con.

Trump isn't perfect....but Democrats and Republicans are Satan... complete filth.
Stop attacking Trump because of tax laws. That's CONGRESS's job.
I preach three main reforms myself.
Reinstate Glass-Steagall, the depression era law that separated investment banking from savings and loan.(You can thank Bill Clinton for that boo-boo.)
Reform tax laws that a generous to investement income. The idea was to keep money invested. Too bad it's invested in Asia now.
Stop waiting to tax profits that were earned in this country and then hidden overseas. We need our infrastructure maintained. There never was any reason for this other than modern colonialism.
I'd drop Trump in a heartbeat if there was anyone else out there who will challenge the aristocracy. There isn't. This is likely going to go the way of the Brownshirts but it WILL come to pass.

As with nutcase right winger, Caitlyn Jenner, and the white, working class base, I want to know why these Jewish supporters of Ill Duce Trump who are now, belatedly moving away from him were deranged enough to support him in the first place. There is a society wide brain disease, obviously.
#12 Aug 18, 2017
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Didn't anyone ever tell you why we nuked Japan and not Berlin? Ol' FDR didn't want to offend German Americans. Wasn't so worried about those sub-humans in Asia.
You can't wash your hand of your race and its works.

They are. We have the videos of the tiki torch nazis marching the night before, when they surrounded the church with the multi cult, praying clergy inside, chanted "Jews will not replace us," and then marched over to the UVA campus and attacked students who at that juncture were not in an organized counter protest. We saw the video of obese neo nazis in polo shirts macing unarmed women. We saw the video of the nazi types beating the lone black guy in the parking garage entry with the garage's gate. We saw the video of the vehicular homicide.
We have also seen your posts. Leftist protesting this or that did not cause the emergence of filthy white supremacists [sic] like you, as you claim. You free embrace a nazi and kkk world view and have for a long time:
Cordwainer Trout: "DNA, physical characteristics, IQ scores... all show the Black race to be a genetically dead end race. Black behavior here and abroad confirms this. They and the Arab Muslims were the only races involved in slave trafficking. No White armies, nor navies ever collected slaves."

Did your video capture the White Supremacists and Nazis chanting Saturday night "jew will never replace us" and "blood and soil" as they paraded through the University of Virginia carrying those Tiki Torches?
That was a sight to behold. An original throwback
Hopefully you captured some of the armed over zealous Klansmen and Nazis brutally attacking the clergy praying at the entrance to emancipation park hours before the rally was supposed to start

I dont recall seeimg Keith Ellison filtered in with the Republicans outfitted in Nazi paraphernalia Friday night singing " jews will never replace us" and "blood and soil" as they paraded through the University of Virginia
I caustion you to monitor your political associates if you're trying to identify anti Semitics. You share a lot more than you are willing to admit with their ideology.

We see here on Topix the white supremacist tactic of deflection. This is what's done when Trump's actions are inexcusable and indefensible. These include;
-but her emails!
-what about when Obama (fill in the blank)
-a Bernie supporter shot...
-MLK was a leftist terrorist
...and so on.
The reason behind this is to deflect the argument and change the subject, getting off the fact that a white supremacist Trump supporter ran over and lulled a woman with his "Challenger of Peace". STICK TO THE SUBJECT. Don't let them steer off subject.

Why would I factor in nuking Japan when my point is America"s extermination of Nazis in Germany ?
#19 Aug 18, 2017
..because Japan and Germany were allies? Tripartite Pact and all that..
As mentioned, we didn't "exterminate" NAZIs. We were in a rush to get their best scientists before the Russians could.
The funny thing I observe is that some of the most racist people are actually those who are multi-racial and who overcompensate to be identified as members of their preferred race.
My sister is a scientist. One day we got together while she was visiting D.C. to attend a conference. We were discussing race relations.(She IS a zealous liberal who distrusts corporate conservatives)I was in the Navy at the time. I worked in a room that had about 40% black representation. D.C. itself is about 80 percent black.
She insisted that corporations still refuse to hire blacks. I pointed out that her conference was filled with Whites and Asians but not a single Black was in the room who wasn't there to bus tables at best. Why are our liberal universities not including Blacks? Can't they teach them? Don't they want them? Hardly a single scientist in that room ever had a job in the corporate sector, but apparently they had a legitimate reason why they don't hire Black scientists.
Well, I think I can tell you why this has come to pass. It does have to do with genetics, but I don't pass judgement. I merely suggest that those from equatorial climates process short term and long term memory with different priority and thus the teaching process and work environment should reflect their strategy for rational thinking.
Now, bringing up genetic differences IS TABOO!!!!! Why? Because people reach the wrong conclusions, right? Unfortunately, we still have to reconcile who has the ability to make the RIGHT conclusions!!!! Well, scientists obviously!!! Hhhmmmm.....
See, the funny thing is that me and my sister are a bit more alike than you'd think.. We're not really much in the way of bluebloods. My training was Navy training where rules come first. Honor and discipline give people authority to make decisions. She was of the academic world where she could study and vent her opinions willy-nilly because her credentials "entitled" her to their consideration. She just was not often required to show results. Me? Results are good. but rules are everything.
This is where we have to ask WHY we think corporations are evil bigots? Is there a problem due to not acknowledging one's personal best practices. Is the problem one of "authority" to make decisions? Does the end result justify actions that could be considered discrimination?
Final piece of irony. My sister was kind of driven out of the research community. Could be lack of results. Could be that she was not a blueblood with family money. Could be because she was a WOMAN!!!(You can guess what her choice is!) Now she's working in a school after she spent years at a private sector job where they just didn't appreciate her work. It seems her job is to get their pre-med students up to snuff on passing their medial boards.
Now the question I have is: Why does this school teach medicine, but the students can't pass exams?
You see, the answer I have is that they are going to do what they were going to do anyway. Bluebloods will still get their doctor's jobs. Researchers will have to fight for grants and part of the process is to dump mediocre performers to make room for the next generation of dreamers.
In the end, we always respond to the aristocracy first, and the path of minimum resistance second. Japan was a culture that was still a form of Bushido that was easy for us to dismiss. Many of the world's premier scientists were from Germany. We made a minimum resistance decision. AND a racist decision.
We need to know how we are different as much as we are the same. Witch hunts won't teach anyone anything.

Should Nazi's be beaten "in love" by those that are against them? The beaters would be using the same tactics as the original Nazi's ddi in WW2 Germany.
Does not that seen odd?
