I've seen "stars" like that in advertising all my life and never thought it was a Star of David.


Of course, had it been a five pointed star, the LSM would have said it was intended to be a pentagram associated with the occult.

I just don't get it...


Of all the real, legitimate criticisms they can level against Trump, the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party i.e. the mainstream media, continues to harp on made up, political correctness nonsense. They just can't help themselves.

Racism is a cash cow.
Trump is a cash cow.

If the media can combine the two it's like winning the lottery.

I stand by my post:

An Open Letter to Jared Kushner, From One of Your Jewish Employees | | Observer

...and, no, Kushner did NOT address this.

Here ya go.

I certainly am no fan of Donald Trump, in fact, I think he is about as low as a human can be. However, I agree this star thing is absolutely stupid. I have seen the same star on a lot of advertising and products where the person is trying to emphasize a marked down price or other feature.

Sometimes people see what they want to see, even if that was not the original intent.

The problem is, that WAS the original intent. The person who created that graphic was anti-Semitic who also posted other troubling bigoted material.

So either Trump and/or his campaign staffers are incompetent and/or careless for not finding out the source before he tweeted it, or he's actively courting the worst elements in the "alt right" and going for plausible deniability when called on it.

Neither one makes him look good, just for different reasons.

"In my opinion, accusations like 'racist' and 'anti-Semite' are being thrown around with a carelessness that risks rendering these words meaningless," Kushner wrote.

"If even the slightest infraction against what the speech police have deemed correct speech is instantly shouted down with taunts of 'racist' then what is left to condemn the actual racists?" he wrote. "What do we call the people who won't hire minorities or beat others up for their religion?"


Trump is a knee-jerk tweeter, who should probably give it up for his own good. You can call him a lot of things (God knows I sure have!), but he is not an anti-Semite.
I agree, Trump is not a racist. He just knows how and wants to continue to make use of those that are.

Yes. The person who put this crap together for Donnie to use knows what he was doing and is laughing all the way to the office of the propaganda ministry. He passed "Go" and you're a fool if you don't think he knew what he was doing.

Just because his Jewish son in law says something doesn't make it true. He works for Pharoah and is well paid, so, consider the source of his denial.

He's a Kushner. He doesn't need Trump's money.

What, oh what, would we do without the perfunctory preface I'm not a Trump fan, but..., or its twin I'm not a Trump fan, either...

How sad that some can't simply point out unfairness when they see it without, in essence, apologizing for doing so.
