He loves Jewish people, though! Some of his hottest daughters are Jewish!

COOL. STORY. BRO:

President Donald Trump told Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro that bomb threats at Jewish Community Centers may have been from “the reverse” to try to “make others look bad,” Shapiro said today.

When a reporter asked Shapiro if he took this to mean that Trump was implying his supporters were being framed, he responded that he can’t be sure what the president meant but that “he used the word ‘reverse’ I would say two to three times in his comments.”

Man, we hate it when unruly Jewishes “reverse” do things, to make it look like other people are being bad! There’s reverse-racisting, reverse cowgirl-ing, and now the Jewish version, which is reverse bomb threating and reverse vandalizing, and hey, maybe they’ll get to reverse Holocaust-ing before this is all over!

Did Steve Bannon actually write that statement out for Trump, or did he come up with it all by himself? And what do Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who are verified Jewish people, think about the notion that the recent national spate of Jewish graves being vandalized, Jewish Community Centers and schools getting hit with bomb threats, and just the general rise in anti-Semitic activity since the election, are false flag operations to make Trump supporters, who have NEVER BEEN KNOWN to be racist, look very bad and unkind? Are Ivanka and Jared cool with this accusation, or do they even care?

On the other hand, has Donald Trump not officially ended anti-Semitism forever, by meekly agreeing that hatred is bad? And, when that didn’t shut up all his critics, because it was all he’d said in weeks, actually saying “NO, DO NOT BE MEAN TO JEWISHES, and also please stop killing nice Indian foreigners,” right there in his joint address to Congress? Oh well, guess not everybody has gotten the message.

KKK dude David Duke, who still has quite a boner for Trump, has not gotten the message that anti-Semitism isn’t cool, but he has gotten the message that Jewish people are reverse-racisting themselves:

Maybe Trump had been playing on Duke’s Twitter feed right before he told the PA attorney general about the Jewishes doing things “from the reverse.” And oh golly, as ShareBlue points out, Anthony Scaramucci, a Trump adviser, tweeted MUCH THE SAME THING on Tuesday:

Oh shut up, you fucking douche, James O’Keefe did not “reveal” any effort by “The Democrats” to incite violence. O’Keefe has never “revealed” anything in his life, besides that you PROBABLY shouldn’t get on a dildo lube canoe with him by yourself.

But anyway, weird! Guess this is what Trump’s America wants us to believe now! The Jews are sending bomb threats to themselves and fucking up their own cemeteries, to make it look like the Hitler Youth who support Trump are mean and terrible and bad. How unfair, of the Jewish people!

We’re just surprised Trump hasn’t tried to enlist the Jewish community in blaming the violence on Illegal Mexican Muslim Syrian Hispanics, but we guess that would be a little bit too cute by half, even for Trump. Might as well just do something new and different and blame the Jews!

    http://www.salon.com/2017/03/01/breitbart-under-bannon-breitbarts-comment-section-reflects-alt-right-anti-semitic-language/

    As President Trump is pressured to substantively respond to the rise in anti-Semitic incidents since his election, a new analysis reveals that Breitbart News under Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon fostered a comment section — a sample of Breitbart’s readership — that increasingly reflected language specific to the white nationalist “alt-right” movement, including anti-Semitic sentiment.

    Comparing the language of Breitbart commenters to the language of the most aggressive far-right extremists online — e.g. language used by Twitter users who advocate for violence against minorities and are openly pro-Nazi — we can see a clear trend of increasing similarity over a three-year period, the bulk of it under Bannon. Bannon left Breitbart to join the Trump campaign in mid-August 2016 but the editorial focus of the site stayed the course he set it on.

    Diving deeper into anti-Semitic sentiment we see a similar trajectory. In early 2013, the term “Jewish” was used in a similar way as “white” or “black” as a racial/ethnic descriptor, which is similar to how “Jewish” is used in the mainstream press. By 2016 on Breitbart, however, “Jewish” had morphed into an epithet, used in similar contexts as “socialist” or “commie.”

    In a mainstream newspaper article, the word “Jewish” is statistically similar to words such as “Muslim” and “Christian.” This means that mainstream commentators usually rely on the word “Jewish” to describe someone or something religious. This was the case for Breitbart comments back in July 2013.

    For far-right wing extremists, the word “Jewish” is used in a totally different context. Instead, its use is statistically similar to words such as“communist,” “homosexual,” “anti-white,” and “satanic.” Within Breitbart’s comment section, “Jewish” was increasingly used in contexts similar to “commie” and “socialist” or even “progressive.”

      But…but…but they’re JEWS, not AMERICANS!!1!

      ~ Donald Judas Trump

  • memzilla Ω

    For the second time in two months, I got a friend of a friend unfriended on Faceborg over Dolt 45. And I did it the same way, by posting links to real news and adding some weaponized snark. Which is what we DO here! YAY TEAM!

    The dish: after some previous jabs delivered over the past few weeks, the RWNJ woman, Jewish, working for a large lobbying firm, was LIVID over my calling Cheeto Benito and his administration out for enabling the rising tide of anti-Semitic attacks in the US, and she called me an anti-Semite and an asshole. To which I replied:

    “Guess that makes the director of the Anne Frank Center an anti-Semite and an asshole, too. ‘The president’s sudden acknowledgement is a Band-Aid on the cancer of anti-Semitism that has infected his own administration,’ said Steven Goldstein, executive director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. It’s ‘a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting anti-Semitism,’ Goldstein said in a Facebook post.” [link]

    My friend defended me at some length, and RWNJ unfriended her for so doing.

    Here’s the backstory. Some years ago, I helped said friend, also Jewish, research the history of some of her relatives in Occupied Europe; an uncle who was ransomed from France by HIAS and then became Patton’s G2 in North Africa and Sicily, responsible for interviewing and tricking Nazi officers into revealing intelligence; and two other relatives who were put on a train from Vienna to Minsk, and were shot and murdered just outside of the Maly-Trostinets extermination camp.

    In the course of researching her family history, I had contacted a German historical society which was re-enacting the exact rail route, station by station, that the deported Jews were sent on, using an actual locomotive from that time. Turned out they had the official Deutches Reichsbahn records of almost all of the death trains.

    Then, I contacted the Head Researcher at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, looking for more information about Maly-Trostinets. As it happened, he didn’t know about the existence of the historical society and the Deutsches Reichsbahn records. I introduced him to the head of the German historical society via email, and was not only able to trace the actual train and route that my friend’s relatives took to their deaths, but was thanked by the Head Researcher for enabling thousands of other families to also know about the last days of their relatives.

    It gave me chills.

    I’m not saying I deserve someone planting a tree in Israel for what I did, but I am extremely fucking proud to have played a small part in fucking with fascists both then and now.

    If we’re going to go full-on conspiracy theory, let’s dive in all the way. Apparently, law enforcement officials believe many of the threatening calls to Jewish community centers have originated overseas. http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/28/us/bomb-threats-jewish-centers-jcc/ How about some moron, like Bannon, trying to fan the fear flame in this country and play to his racist supremacist base by coordinating this from overseas?

    • shivaskeeper

      There wasn’t a whole lot in the article about the calls. or the status of any investigations. Other than law enforcement think some of them came from overseas. I would think that if some scammer can spoof a number to call me from D.C. to tell me they are with the IRS, a similar thing can happen here.

      • Crank Tango

        If I wanted to do such a thing and deflect the blame, I’d use Scape or another online calling service.

        • shivaskeeper

          I believe online calling could be traced back to your MAC of your device. Scammers can make their calls appear to come from damn near any number. Why not use the same tech for things like this?

          • NastyBossetti

            They did. The caller ID on the threatening call to my local JCC said it was coming from… the JCC itself. I hadn’t heard law enforcement had any info on where they thought it actually came from, though.

    I am sick, sick sick to death this morning of hearing that “Trump is Presidential now”. Are people really so stupid that one time the man reads off a teleprompter (and fills the speech with provable lies) that everything is fine now?

    CNN said their poll last night showed a 78% approval rating on that speech. I’m assuming that the 78% are right wingers who watched, and the 22% were journalists that had to, and few progressives could tolerate it, so that’s why.

      Mr. Trump visits the Capitol: Same old lies in a terrifying new context
      It was the usual collection of propaganda falsehoods — but delivered to the actual Congress by the actual president
      GARY LEGUM
      On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump stood in front of a joint session of Congress, read a speech off a teleprompter with little trouble, and walked back out of the room without tripping over his own exceptionally long necktie. He cleared the bar only because it is set so low for him that one would need a team of archaeologists to dig it up.
      The speech itself was the usual mixture of poison and BS to which we have grown sadly accustomed. By now the only people who must watch a Trump speech with even a vague glimmer of a hope that he will start acting “presidential” – that he will finally achieve that long-hoped-for “pivot” – must be the cable pundits and columnists who have airtime and column inches to fill. The rest of us have long since moved on if we know what’s good for us.
      ————————–
      Because inside that overripe cantaloupe of a head, Donald Trump’s world remains a frightening place detached from reality with the sheerness and severity of a sawed-off tree limb.
      ————————–
      As with almost every Trump speech, almost every single word was a lie, including the articles.
      ————————–
      (T)hat was Trump on Tuesday night in his first joint speech to Congress, as it has been since he first announced his run for the presidency. Flat-out lying about the nation’s problems, locked into the hard-right dogma that persists in his administration despite being knocked down by reality time and time again, with a smirk on his face and his chin upturned in such a way that he resembles no one so much as Toad from the Frog and Toad children’s books, gaslighting this nation of suckers one more time. ]

      • Lara

        On the long tie (trivial side-topic), Esquire is obsessed with the fact that he tapes the back to the front of his long tie, because he leaves it so long that the back can’t tuck into the slot on the front that it’s supposed to. They have tons of photos of his tie blowing up showing Scotch tape all over it. The idiot doesn’t know how ties work.

        Fun temporary diversion, when you can’t stand the news for 5 more minutes. Then get back to the news.

        • Liberal Fascist Ron

          And one again, a spray-tan line. Even his cosmeticians must hate him.

            Yes, but I am aware that it is in fact a character flaw.

      • Liberal Fascist Ron

      Meh. By this evening, Trump will have attacked the DAR or signed an EO banning puppies or some damned psychotic thing.

    • Shanzgood

      Even NPR. UGH

      • BadKitty904

        Remember, NPR is now packed by the GOP. It’s no longer a legitimate news source.

        • Shanzgood

          I don’t even listen any more. The headlines I run across are bad enough that I don’t want to read the articles, either. But I still can’t get over feeling kind of betrayed.

          • BadKitty904

            That’s because we have been betrayed.

          • Shanzgood

            *sigh*

        • Liberal Fascist Ron

          So desperate to keep their funding that they just threw away their whole reason for existing in the first place.

          • BadKitty904

            Succinctly -and accurately – put. They have alienated their entire traditional audience.

          • Liberal Fascist Ron

            I remember, not long ago, driving through some obscure part of Pennsylvania with nothing but radio available. Mostly C&W and Jesus-wheezers and the odd college station, but I briefly had an NPR affiliate to listen to. Hard to tell, though, since half of it seemed to be RW talking points. And I thought, okay, who had they been sold to?

          • BadKitty904

            The Republican Party/Putin.

          • Paul

            We are lucky here in the northeast to have WAMC, a first class operation, still. They do much of their own programming and rely very little on NPR provided content.

            They also rail about how fucked up NPR has become. Their thrice annual fundraisers are a thing of beauty and totally unique. None of the usual hour here and ten minutes there trying to make their “nut” over the course of weeks. Nope. Fuck that. It’s all fundraising all day (except for news on the hour) for as many days as it takes to raise the million they need for each 4 month period. Their most recent one lasted LESS THAN A DAY!!!11!!

            That’s right. WAMC raised ONE MILLION DOLLARS in a day. Because they are the fucking best. And they are online, with pledges sent in from around the world, because word has spread that they are the cat’s ass.

          • Liberal Fascist Ron

            It’s inadequate, but the only word I have for all this is ‘wow.’

      • DahBoner

        Within 10 seconds after the speech was over, CBS started gushing over him 💩

    • mardam422

      ” Are people really so stupid….”
      Yes.

    • Thiazin Red

      This happened multiple times during the campaign. he managed to give a speech or go a couple days without saying/doing anything too outrageous and suddenly he was presidential, so pivoted.

      • Lara

        You’re right. It’s hard to remember, because we have a dozen treasonous outrages a day. The campaign seems like it was 20 years ago. That’s what they’re hoping, that we’ll just get tired of it.

        And I think that’s why so many people are so anxious to jump on the “he’s presidential now, so everything’s ok” train because it’s exhausting to keep being upset.

        I choose exhaustion.

        • FigaroPho

          Exhaustion is what they want from us. They want us to stop fighting because it scares them. Don’t stop fighting.

          They did not count on the women’s march being bigger than the inauguration.

          They didn’t think anyone would care about his Muslim ban, much less come out and protest at the airports.

          They didn’t expect people, including GOP voters, to angrily shout them down at town halls where they lie about the ACA while planning to destroy it and kill thousands of people in the process.

          Outrage fatigue is what they’re desperately trying to cultivate in us, don’t give in. It’s what they want. That speech last night was pathetic and all the moron pundits want to give this psycho a cookie for acting a little less psycho than usual. Let them, it won’t last. Conway’s leash is short and he knows how to chew it off. He’ll back to his lunatic default setting in no time.

    • Relativicus

      Yes. And assume nothing.

    • Tio_Doidinho

      I’m assuming this “he’s SO PRESIDENTIAL” makeout session with pundits will last until the next verbal shart from the WH. Which should be landing by 1PM EST or so.

      • Lara

        So true.

  • snigsy

    Blame the Jews. Now there’s an innovative idea that should have outstanding political results. Make the Fatherland Great Again!

  • Chyron HR

    Because calling them “(((coincidences)))” would have been too subtle.

  • cmd resistor

    So I missed the beginning of the so-called speech and the pundits were raving over how he strongly condemned the Jewish stuff and the shooting of the Indian guys. Imagine my shock when I finally found the whole two sentences. He didn’t even MENTION that the guys were Indian.

    • resistance_fighter_rosenbomb

      I heard those sentences on NPR…no emotion whatsoever.

      • cmd resistor

        As with any of his statements on things like that. He doesn’t give a flying fuck; someone just made him throw that in there.

        • Lara

          And he knows if he contradicts it later he can just say he never said the first thing, and people can show video of him saying it and his followers will still swear it’s fake news that he every said it.

    • Red Bird Ω

      Now imagine if Obama failed to say anything.

      • cmd resistor

        Of course he’d say something so they could call him “divisive.”

      • Crank Tango

        Or say some dumb magic phrase like Radical Whitist Terrorism.

        I do kinda like the sound of that tho.

    • Ghenghis McCann

      Just out of curiosity; are there any Trump hotels / golf courses / casinos etc in India? I suspect not. If his personal business dealings could have been affected he would have come out in total condemnation.

      • cmd resistor

        Looks like one in Mumbai and maybe others. I guess not enough to warrant calling out a white supremacist. I got the impression the victims were from a relatively small town but am not positive on that.

  • This begs the question: Are the Nazis punching themselves? If they aren’t, why not? If they are, why aren’t they doing it more?

  • beatbort

    When will Trump start reading verbatim from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion? Or has he already done so and I just missed it?

    • They’re trying to dumb it down for him. Too many big words in the original

    • laughingnome

      His inaugural was a rough approximation.

  • DahBoner

    The poor Nazis were only trying to give the Jewish people a warm shower of poison gas, and those terrible people all suffocated themselves to make the brave German Christians look bad!!!1!1!

    • Shanzgood

      What does that have to do with Lent?

      • Shanzgood

        Just curious. I don’t know these things.

        • Robbertjan Brandenburg

          repentance of sins is a part of lent. I think that’s what Red Bird was thinking of.

      • NastyBossetti

        Lent is a time of repentance, atonement and self-restraint, and hatred isn’t typically part of that. It’s only the first day of Lent, and already some people are making it very difficult to not engage in hate!

      • Red Bird Ω

        According to Catholicism, hatred is a sin. True story, during Obama’s presidency, the priest at church mentioned people going to confession for having bad thoughts about “politicians”. He wouldn’t say who but you could guess who.

        • Shanzgood

          Ah, ok. I’m still not quite familiar with these human customs.

      • BadKitty904

        Amen.

      • theblackdog

        I could get behind this.

    • Lara

      I hope you didn’t give up anger and despair for lent!

    • theblackdog

      I gave up Facebook for Lent last year and it probably helped keep the hatred down. I pretty much gave it up after Thanksgiving for mental health reasons but now it might be time to delete it so I don’t have to see either his supporters or the “Well we should give him a chance” types.

      • Red Bird Ω

        Good for you. I gave up FB years ago after becoming “friends” with all of my old classmates from high school and college. Then came the first stages of the political talk and Farmville. I don’t have a high tolerance for that type of stuff so I shut it down. It might have started off as a way to connect people but has turned into a way to monitor people’s behavior.

        • theblackdog

          Not just monitor, but change behavior, and not always in good ways. A few years ago they admitted they were tweaking some user’s news feeds to show more negative or more positive stories as part of a study that some psych researchers wanted to conduct. I’m not entirely convinced they aren’t still doing it, considering the stories that have come out about how much misinformation they allowed to permeate during the election.

          The only thing that keeps me from pushing the delete button is a few who use it for event invites and messaging, but I’m seeing if they can switch to something else.

          • Red Bird Ω

            True. If you have time you should do a search on Thiel and his reasons for investing in FB when it was new. He saw the potential for influencing people back then and still sees it as a tool.

    • David Chaillou

      You need to love him so much that he no longer feels compelled to make other people’s lives a living hell. It might really work, actually.

    It doesn’t matter what he said prior to his new “presidential” speech. The past is forgotten, from now on it will all be different, the USA is just like one big domestic violence victim.

    • Thiazin Red

      Right, forget that pivoting to being presidential happened many times during the campaign and he always went back to being himself.

      • Lara

        And he wasn’t even presidential. He was just “more presidential” than the day before. Now on a scale of presidentiality on a scale of 1-100 he’s a -999 instead of a -10000

        • FigaroPho

          He wasn’t even ‘more presidential’, just less blatantly psychotic and yet still pretty psychotic. But I guess this is where we’re at. Being less blatantly psychotic is now considered more presidential. JFC. The last six weeks has felt like 400 fucking years. Time has never crawled by this slowly.

    • Carpe Vagenda

      I don’t even think it’s that complicated. If Trump is as godawful as he actually is, the Times/CNN/NBC/$c fucked up Real Bad. And we can’t have that.

    • Relativicus

      “He didn’t sniff and fling his own poo! It’s a new America. So presidential!”

      The psychological conditioning is exactly the same. People are buying it because they’re idiots. We live in a country filled with ignoramuses who enjoy being conned, lied to, and stolen from. And they keep going back to their abusers for more and actively resent and despise the people trying to protect them. It’s pathetic.

  • Panika MCD

    dear Jimmy Oak Reef,

    that’s not what “bird-dogging” means. that not even what most Millennials have mistaken the term to mean. language is fluid, not gaseous.

    GFY in the ear,
    the Urban Dictionary

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bird%20dogging

    • LucindathePook

      In the 50s, bird-dogging meant going after someone else’s date. See: Everly Brothers’ Bird-Dog

      • Lara

        He’s a bird! He’s a dog! He’s a bird-dog!

      • Panika MCD

        that’s what they thought it meant. that’s not what it really means. the Everly Brothers were wrong.

        • LucindathePook

          Well, it COULD mean two different things. I’ve seen other 50s-era references to it with the EB usage.

          • Panika MCD

            yeah, it means a dog of a certain hunting breed and can be used in place of the verb “hound”.

        • LucindathePook

          From the blog, Sentence First: “I’d come across bird-dog before, probably in a novel, in the sense steal (or try to steal) another person’s date, but here I learned of its analogous use in business – steal (or try to steal) another person’s project….Dictionaries that include bird-dog, such as the OED, Merriam-Webster, and American Heritage, indicate other senses dating from the 1930s or 40s that come from the actions of the eponymous hunting animal: the verb has both transitive and intransitive senses having to do with following or closely watching a subject of interest, or scouting (e.g., for talent)…..[A]side from its standard meanings, bird dog has an array of (contradictory) slang ones. Jonathon Green includes seven noun and eight verb senses in Chambers Slang Dictionary, including (n.) receiver of stolen goods; one who lures victims into positions of vulnerability; an assistant, esp. in police or journalism; and (v.) to eavesdrop; to pimp for, to solicit for another person; to watch over, to protect.

          • Panika MCD

            you really don’t want to argue with me about this. you really don’t.

          • LucindathePook

            Why not? Do you disagree that some words/phrases can have more than one meaning. Or that the OED and other repositories might have information that is not in the Urban Dictionary, which is I believe of more recent vintage??

          • Panika MCD

            you really really really don’t want to argue with me about this.

          • LucindathePook

            Well, you are correct in that I don’t want to argue with you. You are boring. And there is really no argument. You intimated that the Everly Brothers could not be correct in their usage of a phrase, and I replied that the phrase had other meanings, especially considering they were writing/singing it in the 50s, when I was actually alive and heard my contemporaries use the phase with the meaning the EB ascribed. Think you are overreacting JUST A TAD.

          • Panika MCD

            I was in the middle of some legislative hearings and you were and are still being an asshole, but since you insist:

            you seem to be unclear on what the OED is and how to use it. for one thing, it’s not a blog. for another, it’s not old–it’s on a continuum. it’s whole point is to chart the history of each word so it’s neither old nor new. so your use of the word “vintage” is out of place.

            not all old things a better. there are a lot of old dictionaries floating about that are downright silly because the first ones were supposed to be for unskilled people (including all women). Samuel Johnson’s was the light of its time, but it’s still got it’s own share of quaint definitions.

            there are some limits, though–like not putting in things that aren’t used widely because it always includes 3 quotes for each version. not one. you only came up with one. and so did the blog.

            many people, the blog included, are confused about whether the OED and the Oxford Dictionary of English–they are both printed by the University of Oxford Press, but your blogger probably didn’t know that only the latter is searchable on dictionary dot com because one is an etymological document, the other is a reference document. you also seem to think it’s only academics contributing to its creation which would make you very wrong. the dictionary has been using a legion of volunteers since 1879 to provide references. 10 thousand of its word definitions, references and etymologies (which are in there for each word) were provided by a man who was committed to an asylum for the criminally insane because he shot a random guy. I can’t think of any other reason you would have problems with a volunteer generated, but curated site that takes on a similar method as the OED.

            I named more than one use of the word for you, but that didn’t seem to get through your ever so thick skull or dense ego.

            so if you don’t mind pulling the stick out of your ass and not arguing with me about this, that would be fantastic.

    It’s more likely that some 4chan Trump supporters are behind this. From what little I have read that provided scant details, the phone calls spoofed caller ID, so that points to using VOIP software that lets you define your caller ID.

    It also adds a charge once they are tracked down. On top of felony terroristic threats, there’s a 10K fine for each spoof effort.

    Now, I don’t know if or what they may have done to obscure their IP path (hopeful that they might be newbs with little background making it a quick feat to track them down).

    Ah, Republicans. They just keep taking it to the next level, don’t they?

    This kind of ‘ACK–THE JEWS!’ conspiracy thinking has been around forever, of course. Its current iteration comes from the crowd that believes six impossible things before breakfast each and every day. This is the crowd that brewed up the theory that FDR himself set up the bombing of Pearl Harbor because–well, because THE JEWS.

    “Franklin Delano ROSENFELD” they used to howl in Republican circles, just to drive home the point that the only people to profit from the war (did we say “profit?” you bet we did) were–yes, who else?–THE JEWS.

    Donald precursor and Republican icon Pat Buchanan has insisted for years that we fought on the wrong side in WWII: the Republican Party now swarms and teems with individuals who alternate between insisting that a) there was no Holocaust, b) since the Holocaust hurt everybody equally, why are THE JEWS always going on and on as if they were the only victims, and c) what’s wrong with a little Holocaust every now and again?

    PS: Republicans can’t possible be anti-Semites because they’re pro-Israel. Leftists are the real anti-Semites because they insulted Bibi Netanyahu that one time. Plus, there’s Jared Kushner–how can Donald be an anti-Semite if his daughter Married One?

    Anyhow, in the right-wing hive-mind the notion that THE JEWS are somehow behind the whole thing is well and truly and deeply rooted, and Donald is merely articulating what a lot of these people choose to believe, only he’s not some sweaty little Reddit jerk with a swastika tattoo, he’s the friggin’ man with the nuclear codes.

    Gah.

      I saw this gem somewhere this morning:

      Trump saying he can’t be anti-Semetic because he has Jewish people in his family is like saying he can’t be a misogynist because he has a wife.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Three wives, as a matter of fact, which shows a certain lack of ability to maintain a healthy relationship, and one of them said he raped her, so yeah, whoever said that little gem was right.

  • MeerkatsRMammals

    Ok, everyone…time for some “scream therapy”! 1. Grab a pillow 2. Scream as many obscenities into it as you can before you suffocate. Feel better? Nope. Me either :(

    • Lara

      I’m at work. Should I just grab a customer?

      • mrpuma2u

        Yes!

      • MeerkatsRMammals

        LMAO! I’d advise against that. Unless you’re looking to get a new job…or you find a willing customer ;)

      • MeerkatsRMammals

        My husband says “grab ’em by the pussy”…that’s totally acceptable nowadays, right?

    • thewalkindude

      How’d you get ahold of Paul Ryan’s health care plan?

  • MeerkatsRMammals

    Another quick comment because I am so mad about this… If these bastards knew their history, they wouldn’t be blaming “reverse” racism. Jewish people wouldn’t do this because they know what happened next:

  • No one may ever speak the name of Godwin again.

  • capnkrunch

    So, serious question: when should I, as a Jew, flee? I have Canadian citizenship and family in Canadian that I could probably stay with but I have work and school obligations here…

    Some people have said once they start rounding up Muslims but they’re already started rounding up immigrants and with neo-Nazi Steve Bannon in charge I’m not sure that Jews won’t be next on the list…

    • Not even snarking but making plans now and having an exit plan are a VERY good idea :/

    • Angela Ruzzo

      I am not Jewish, but I have made an exit plan already, as per the comment below by Jen B of the Resistance. It is always wise to have an exit plan, the more detailed, the better.

    • Pookabun

      At least you have family to run to in Canada if in dire need. I’m also Jewish and can’t pick up and leave (yet, working on it) but my friends in Canada have issued open invitations if it comes to that. So at least we both have a place to run to.

      • sweeper

        Go to the Australian immigration website, look at the list of needed occupations, you might fit!

        • Pookabun

          Nice, I may do that. I love kangaroos if nothing else! I was also thinking of somewhere like Nicaragua but with climate change maybe north is better.

          • sweeper

            Yeah, I hear that! Also, if shit really hits the fan? Watch where the tech industry goes.

        • HarpyLibtart

          It’s true, there are all sorts of jobs – pro tip, we’re particularly desperate for nurses and teachers at the moment, I believe.

          https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/Work/Skills-assessment-and-assessing-authorities/skilled-occupations-lists/SOL

          Also, if you’re willing to work in a ‘remote/regional area’ you will get bonus points on your application…just beware, they MEAN it when they say remote, so you should be prepared to be working in a some one-horse town 4-6 hours drive from an actual city for a couple of years if you sign on for that.
          (Although, all permanent jobs here come with paid holidays and stuff, so you can make regular trips to the big smoke to enjoy civilization if you do end up out in the boondocks)

          Also, Kangaroos are awesome – I’ve lived here for damn near 15 years and it still blows my mind when I see them wandering around our uni campus.

    • Bill Slider

      Of course, Jews are on his list, along with African Americans, gays, witches and gypsies. To Trump, it’s 1933, 1934, by choice, and by design. Trump is extremely dangerous. His biggest threats are the Pentagon, the intelligence community and the media. That’s why he continuously plants seeds of mistrust of those three entities into the minds of his supporters, while praising, then condemning all three. There is but One God in Trump’s world, and it is Donald Trump.

    • Swampgas_Man

      And for those of us too broke and friendless to leave, there’s all the Polish Ghetto approach.

      • sweeper

        Yeah, that always works well. I am updating my family’s passports, but I’m looking into Australia. If we have to go, Canada’s too close.

        • Keith Taylor

          At least we don’t have Jeff Sessions or Steve Bannon here. We do have Pauline Hanson and her One Nation Party, but she’s relatively nice (I said relatively) and we also have some Neo-Nazis, but they’re not in power. And John Howard is no longer Prime Minister, he’s been gone for some time …

    • Bad Tom

      Us gay-married queers are on the list also, too.

      Bonus! We self-registered.

      • puredog

        I have been eligible for a medical marijuana card for YEARS here in Oregon, where MM has long been available, recreational MJ only relatively recently. Still, I always thought to myself, I just don’t want to volunteer to have my name on a registry. . .I’d rather just deal with the guy in the trenchcoat near the playground (cue Tom Lehrer), thank you very much. I am now feeling entirely vindicated as I cast side-eye at Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. I realize, BTW, that this is small potatoes compared to being targeted for one’s religion, skin color, sexual orientation or national orientation, but it is different in degree and not kind.

        • Bad Tom

          I also likely qualify for MM here in Massachusetts. We’ll see if our new AG starts busting dispensaries or patients for medical marijuana.

      • Keith Taylor

        Yeah, and if things get really bad and you defend yourselves with guns, where will the substituting-firearms-for-penises fetishist NRA be? Probably not on your side. Fuck’m. Not that I think you would in a brain-damaged fit. Fuck’m with barbed wire dildos is more what I meant. But impeach Donald Trump first. There must be valid legal grounds by now, mustn’t there?

        • Bad Tom

          If they come to take me, I won’t go alone.

          • Keith Taylor

            I’d bloody hope not. But possibly — by now, it even looks probable — Trump will either be impeached or have to resign before it gets to that excessively horrible, I’d like to believe paranoid fantasy stage. Only what’s that clichéd crack? “You’re not paranoid if people really do want to destroy you.”
            And maybe this tide of cruel madness will recede and the creatures it encourages will have to crawl back into hiding under their wet rocks. I hope so. Cripes. I’m offering prayers to that effect, and I’m not much of a praying or believing man.
            Hang in there, Tom.

  • Johnnymoreno

    Jews are framing Nazis–to make them look bad?

  • vivian

    This is terrifying. The kind of mind that would even think that this is a possibility is capable of doing anything to us if it is politically expedient. Trump and Bannon won’t nuke a city where Trump owns real estate, so I’d like to imagine NYC is safe, but God help those places where DJT isn’t invested. We need a word more powerful than just “cynical”.

    • Keith Taylor

      Yes. It is terrifying. The last person I can remember saying something like that was Bull Connor after the Birmingham church bombing. He claimed he wouldn’t be surprised if “Martin Luther King and his gang” did it in order to blame white southerners, the KKK in particular. Get this, Trump. You are going to be remembered the way Connor is remembered. And nobody with sense is going to believe you really credit the idea for a second. Liar as always.

    • phoenix00

      So there IS an upside to living in Vancouver, where a brand new Trump Tower just opened!

    • Keith Taylor

      Terrifying. Yeah. The last implication of that sort I remember — I’m 70 now — was after the Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham in 1963. Bull Connor, just days after the funeral of the murdered girls, suggested to a White Citizens’ Council meeting that Rev. King’s supporters had bombed the church themselves to blame whites for the atrocity. Congratulations, Trump. You’ve attained Connor’s level of integrity. I wasn’t sure you’d ever do it, and you’ve shown me I was mistaken.
      You are so I-wish-you-weren’t, right. There is nothing beneath Trump. Nothing at all.

  • Nick Scroggs

    I swear, sometimes I wonder if these guys just have nothing better to do with their meaningless anger, and just blame Jews after picturing them as coming from “The Iron Dream” instead of small guys with curly hair performing standup in Burbank.

    • sweeper

      They hate that standup guy just as much, if not more. They hate our literacy. They hate our tradition of doing justly and loving compassion. They cannot bear the idea of humility in the world.

      • Keith Taylor

        Don’t blame you. And of course there will be the usual, “I didn’t mean that, bah, political correctness again, don’t you people get sarcasm?” from the GOP (Grotesque Orange Person). It’s a chilling thought that even back in his day, old Shakespeare (who did a slanderous hatchet job on the Maid of Orleans) was fairer to Shylock in “The Merchant of Venice” than anti-Semites are to Jews today. Shylock is bitter and vengeful, okay, but at least Shakespeare makes it clear that Antonio is a bigoted swine and Shylock has legitimate grudges against him, and depicts Shylock as a man with pride and backbone who doesn’t kiss butt.
        When a sixteenth-century Tudor propagandist hack is less anti-Semitic than a modern U.S. president … maybe the fire next time IS overdue.

        • sweeper

          Indeed, so well put. Omg such a paper I could write on Shylock and the Renaissance Jewish experience in England. Not doing it, nope. Too much homework already.

          • Keith Taylor

            Sorry to hear you’re too snowed under to do that paper. I’d love to read it. Make a sweet relief from reading the political news lately. Maybe one day?

          • sweeper

            I have to do a mini presentation on the subject, soon…..I got papers on halacha, zohar, siddur, Tanach (obvs,) kind of favoring ideas around my thesis. Which will never be finished and I will never graduate because SERIOUSLY MOM QUIT ASKING

  • Jack Tenhet

    Anyone who calls anything “reverse-(Fill in with any word except “engineering”)” is usually either stupid, racist/sexist/homophobic/antisemitic or both.

    Reverse racism doesn’t exist. It either is or is not racism. The same goes for sexism, antisemitism, etc. By implication, the reverse of bigotry and/or prejudice is NO bigotry and/or prejudice. Sorry, that’s a big pet peeve of mine. It’s right there with anyone who uses “literally” before saying something figuratively.

    • Keith Taylor

      Another bloke who loves the English language and is annoyed by stupid neologisms? Pal!

      • Penny Dreadful Says Resist

        I adore a good neologism. I despise ignorant misuse.

        • Keith Taylor

          Ouch. I really did think reverse racism was a neologism. If it’s not, and I misused the term ignorantly, apologies to all English language lovers. (Of which I still claim to be one.) My mistake.

          • Penny Dreadful Says Resist

            Oh, I didn’t mean to contradict you! I apologize if I caused offense or appeared to be offended.

          • Keith Taylor

            No offense taken! And contradict me any time you see I’ve got something wrong. Also I really like your online name and your comments and I better stop there before it starts to look as though I’m truckling.
            Hang in and fight!

      • Jack Tenhet

        Yes I am! Also, I had to look up “neologisms” because I’m not too proud to admit I don’t know.

    • phoenix00

      I’ll admit I overuse “literally”.

      • Jack Tenhet

        If you have, it doesn’t show in your writing because I haven’t noticed.

        • phoenix00

          It might come out more in conversation though. I think my brain fires differently when I’m typing vs speaking.

          • Jack Tenhet

            Mine too. My entire voice and tone are different in writing than in speaking. I have been writing horror fiction since I was nine years old, so I must have developed a completely different style behind a keyboard. In person, I’m a lot less formal and a lot less prone to rambling.

            Consider anything I write here as more of a rough draft than finished product.

      I literally cannot like this statement enough. Literally. In a figurative sense.

    I can’t deal with such blatantly anti-Semitic statements by the President being treated completely normally by the press, so I’m just gonna assume that when he said that “often it’s the reverse”, what he meant was that bomb threats are often the work of the dastardly Reverse-Flash.

    • sweeper

      Oh I know them, and there are none. It’s a classic case of identification with the oppressor. Just like all those 19th century Germans who thought if they acted more Protestant, the antisemites would just be mad at Yiddish speaking, beard having people.

  • sweeper

    Reminiscent of Jews being forced to pay for and clean up the damage of Kristallnacht. Because we just made everyone SO MAD.

  • Keith Taylor

    Riiiiighht. This so reminds me of how Bull Connor, after the Birmingham church bombing, said he wouldn’t be surprised if “Martin Luther King and his gang” had done it themselves to make the KKK look bad by blaming those fine Christian lads for it. Bigots are so original. They also have minds that make an old-fashioned country outhouse that hasn’t been limed for a month seem like roses of Shalimar.
    As for David Duke getting close the truth … even at Warp 8, with the engines coming apart, he has never, I would bet, been within eighty-seven light years of the truth in his slimy life.
