Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

Please, NO MORE PRESIDENTIAL POLLS for the next few years. I'm begging you. I'm eating polls, I'm sleeping polls.
Let's take a poll about who wants to stop with the polls.
According to the latest poll 99% of people are sick of hearing about polls.

Cast your vote here, please.

Took a long time to read.  There is certainly no indication there that he is anti-Semitic.  He is quite deep in to tea party territory.

Exactly the opposite. Here are some quotes.

Quote
Look, we believe ó strongly ó that there is a global tea party movement. Weíve seen that. We were the first group to get in and start reporting on things like UKIP and Front National and other center right. With all the baggage that those groups bring ó and trust me, a lot of them bring a lot of baggage, both ethnically and racially ó but we think that will all be worked through with time.

Quote
uestioner: Thank you very much. Iím [unintelligible]. I come from Slovakia. This is actually the source of my two very quick questions. Thank you very much for the work that you do to promote the Judeo-Christian values in the world. I really appreciate it, and I also feel that the danger is very high. I have two minor questions, because you have mentioned, in terms of UKIP and Front National [unintelligible]. From the European perspective, listening to the language which has become more and more radical from these two parties, especially before the European Parliament elections, Iím just wondering what are your plans on how to help these partners from Europe to maybe focus on the value issues and not with populist? And also it goes in terms ó you have mentioned the involvement of state in capitalism as one of the big dangers. But these two parties youíve mentioned, they actually have close ties with Putin, who is the promoter of this big danger, so Iíd like to know your thoughts about this and how youíre going to deal with it.
Bannon: Could you summarize that for me?
Harnwell: The first question was, youíd reference the Front National and UKIP as having elements that are tinged with the racial aspect amidst their voter profile, and the questioner was asking how you intend to deal with that aspect.
Bannon: I donít believe I said UKIP in that. I was really talking about the parties on the continent, Front National and other European parties.
Iím not an expert in this, but it seems that they have had some aspects that may be anti-Semitic or racial. By the way, even in the tea party, we have a broad movement like this, and weíve been criticized, and they try to make the tea party as being racist, etc., which itís not. But thereís always elements who turn up at these things, whether itís militia guys or whatever. Some that are fringe organizations. My point is that over time it all gets kind of washed out, right? People understand what pulls them together, and the people on the margins I think get marginalized more and more.
I believe that youíll see this in the center-right populist movement in continental Europe. Iíve spent quite a bit of time with UKIP, and I can say to you that Iíve never seen anything at all with UKIP that even comes close to that. I think theyíve done a very good job of policing themselves to really make sure that people including the British National Front and others were not included in the party, and I think youíve seen that also with tea party groups, where some people would show up and were kind of marginal members of the tea party, and the tea party did a great job of policing themselves early on. And I think thatís why when you hear charges of racism against the tea party, it doesnít stick with the American people, because they really understand.
I think when you look at any kind of revolution ó and this is a revolution ó you always have some groups that are disparate. I think that will all burn away over time and youíll see more of a mainstream center-right populist movement.

In case you need a scorecard to keep track of whether or not Bannon is an anti-Semite, Breitbart (no conflict of interest there) just put out a statement by Mort Klein of the ZOA bashing the ADL for calling Bannon an anti-Semite, but the Forward then explained how he could be both pro-Israel and an anti-semite at the same time.

So it's a machlokes ZOA and ADL with the Forward being the machria.

Lo alman Yisrael! Glad to know we have such clarity with us right here in our dor.

This was good to see. He is still downplaying the racist, antisemitic parts of the groups, and he has done nothing at all to separate himself from them. And yes, when you run *the* platform for a group that is riddled with hateful bigots -to the point of being indistinguishable - it is important to make it clear where you stand, especially if you are appointed to such a high ranking position.

One might say progressive lefties have the same antisemitism in their ranks, but we know liberals can't be racist or hateful by definition.

Rabbi Shmuely said he is not antisemitic. I'm convinced.

It is not so complicated. If they are Liberals then Bannon is an anti-semite. If they are conservatives then he is not.

This is liberal rhetoric and nothing more.

I almost spit out my drink from that one.
