NOW who is drinking what?

So much speculation, so far out in left field, and YOU all complain about extremists on the right?

This is ALL manufactured, paid for childishness.

And the left, in their desperation, want everyone to believe otherwise.

Now this "smart" woman Kristen Bell comes out to say "zip it Don" but she is so dumb that she doesn't understand the subject so maybe someone can update her about what the issue is.

Being part of Frozen doesn't make her a person where anyone will listen too other than now kowing how her level of intelligence is....not that high!
With her statement she indirectly supports anti semitic by not saying that Trump's star looked like the Frozen one.

They all have little balls on the ends of the points. The image Trump retweeted came off a White Supremacist website. Doesn't that bother you even a little that he's also retweeted 70 things from White Supremacist sites?

Flag of Israel


The flag of Israel was officially adopted on October 28, 1948.

It displays one of the most recognized symbols in the world - the Star of David - long associated with the Jewish people. The blue and white colors represent the traditional Tallith, the Jewish prayer shawl.....not red like the Trump tweet.

Look, gamebird98, the accurate depiction of the star really isn't the point. I believe the creator's* use of the red star without the overlapping triangles was an attempt to surreptitiously symbolize the Star of David and was not his intent to display it accurately. It was kind of covert symbolism in my opinion. Using an exact replica of the Star of David would be glaringly obvious.

As Wayland Woman has said numerous times, using that red star using the word "corrupt" and with a pile of money makes it unmistakably obvious what the creator of the meme was implying. THAT is what is glaringly obvious. It's not the star itself that makes it anti-Semitic it's the message the meme in its entirety is giving.


* from what I understand, the creator of the meme regularly tweets violent and racist memes and participates on numerous forums and message boards discussing anti-Semitic geopolitical topics.

correct. the star of david can be represented by both the intertwining outlined triangles or a solid star ( as shown on isreali fighter jets that i linked to previously ).

Trump (his staff) lifted this image from a neo-nazi message board that used it in a vile, ugly context: connecting corruption and excessive $$ with a Judaic symbol.
Really, I hadn't heard this.......do you have any proof? Trump said the star was for "breaking the law" and the $$$ was all the foreign money she takes from countries who hate women.......does Hillary really like women?

I'm a firm believe that Trump would not let anyone use his Twitter account so the image had to be sent by Trump himself not but some random employee.

The question now is, why is Trump visiting all these neo-nazi boards and twitter accounts? He continuously tweets graphics from those sites. I mean I know he is the ultimate birther but it's possible he has been visiting those sites for years.
