Trump and Co aren't ready to represent the entire American population. He represents the supremecists, rednecks, racists, and fringe element very well. But as POTUS, he'd represent all of us. He doesn't, and won't. Even his own party members are embarrassed by him.

In Europe there is so.much anti semitic feelings and remarks but if this would be considered to be one of them than we would be over sensitive.

Over there they sell Juden cookies and nobody cares ...and frankly they are very good.
That's nifty! I forgot that you obviously speak for every Jew on the planet.

See if the origin of the tweet didn't come from a racist website that used derogatory phrases in regards to Jews and other minority group you might have a leg to stand on with that argument. Since it did you can stop with attempting to link it to an innocent image.

Those who would use an issue like this are scum and are examples of everything that is wrong with this country. What Trump did was the same thing hundreds of others have done in similar circumstances.

There are hundreds of arguments against Trump but if you have to go here it only shows you are an ignorant fool.

Yes, I always retweet racist images from racist sites myself. Why just last week I retweeted a burning cross with a fine fellow in a hood because I wanted to commemorate halloween.

Hmmm... Looks to me that the stars came with 5,6, and 7 points. Mostly 5 or 6. But by far, all the points have round circles on the points. Those circles make them all look quite a lot different from the Star of David, no matter how many points the star has.

Didn't see any circles on that star in the tweet, though...

I had read once that the reason for the ' circles' on each tip was because a sharpened point would damage the clothing.


As I have said elsewhere, I imagine that somebody on Trump's staff found the image at issue, floating about the tweeter-verse, and suggested that Trump re-tweet it, without knowing the source of the image.


Of course, it could be what some suggest: Trump will 're-tweet' something originating from hate-sites, then deny any knowledge of the source, yet he did it purposely to alert his 'base' that he is 'with them'.


Yet, that is more Machiavellian than I believe Trump is capable of. Then again, lightning does seem to strike the same place time after time.

I'm sure hundreds of others have done the same thing, the only problem is they're racist d-bags.

If you think it's common for people to tweet white supremacist propaganda, it says a lot about the kind of people you hang around with online.

I think the difference is pretty simple to understand. Look at the book and tweet and think of what words come to mind.

Frozen Star of David sticker= positive, friendly, for children

Trump Star of Corruption = negative, corruption, not for families

This is a pretty meaningless topic overall though.

The point of this topic is that this is not the first time Trump has retweeted things from Stormfront/white supremacist type of sites. He retweeted a bogus graphic about black crime statistics a few months back that came from a neo-Nazi Twitter account.

In the bio of the originator of that tweet the author rants about gays and liberals and ends with this little gem: "We should have listened to the Austrian chap with the little moustache."

What this latest retweet tells you is who Trump follows on Twitter. And that should give you pause.
