I'm not sure why this is an either/or thing.
Thank you, and it's not a "two wrongs make a right thing either!"

In each and every one of these cases, what is important is to recognize what in fact is right or wrong, antisemetic or not antisemetic, and get the facts correct rather than use reason and rhetoric based solely on bias that clouds clear thinking in these respects.

Even more specifically and to the point, is Trump antiSemetic or not in your opinion? And why?

Have there not been enough threads about the squad already? Isn't this one about Trump instead?
Is Trump anti-Semitic? You tell me.

This is in Israel... Do you know why that is there?




This thread is not about the squad. However, bringing them up is an example of people reading what they want to read, and overlooking what they want to overlook.

This guy is very ill.
Trump is something like the sore that just won't heal, eventually diagnosed to be skin cancer. Trump is simply a warning sign of just how "ill" America can become as the cancer continues to go untreated.

Quoting blasphemy as was done is blasphemy.

He knows no shame.

Are you explaining we need to simply dismiss or ignore a POTUS who has the ego of Trump Tower proportions, the honor, dignity and inclinations of a childish bully, but somehow respect this one sign as all we need to know? I surely hope we can do better than this. Can't we?

Odds are it is a illegal settlement populated by people who are against their own Government, but who knows? Perhaps you can enlighten us?

Trump doesn't actually give a rat's derriere about Israel. It's all a ruse to try to get American Jews to switch from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party.

There's one little problem with his strategy. When Democratic Jews walk over to the other side, they see the Republican Party associating with white supremacists, skinheads, Nazis, and Alt-Righters and other anti-Semites. Those Jews make a U-turn and go back home to the Democrats. That's why the "Jexodus" failed.

You made a claim that he is anti-Semitic.

Do you know why Israel renamed a place in their country Trump Heights?

Do you want to address this, or do you want to "read what you want to read" and remain in your ignorance?

If you don't know - say so - and I will patiently explain it to you.

It's also a bone to the Christian Right as it fits their bizarre end of days theology.

Right?


It's like using: "No, I didn't call you an idiot. I asked you if you were an idiot." as a defense.
