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.

She never mentioned BDS, but everyone should understand that's where she's going with this. Any attempt to say otherwise is being deliberately obtuse.

We should definitely disagree with atrocities abroad. The issue with BDS is that it's a purely anti-semitic movement.
Your view on BDS is your view and you are entitled to it just as others are entitled to theirs.

Let me ask you. Should US citizens be able to protest Israel if they feel they are violating human rights?
If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel, Mr. Trump said.

@aygart requesting your expertise. What does this bill say?
https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-resolution/496/text?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22omar%22%5D%7D&r=2&s=4
She starts off with the rights of individuals which is a constitutional right and no state law to prevent it would stand under legal scrutiny. The state laws to prevent boycotts are referring to laws preventing government boycotts. THe only such laws being discussed now are ones to prevent targetting of Israel. I do not think that states should be setting their own foreign policies.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Thanks and I wasn't aware of the state laws being discussed.
Is there anything in the resolution that compares Nazi Germany to Israel?

It's context. Those of us that know the background to this resolution know that they were attempting to draw parallels between the human rights issues of the 4 historical precedents and those they perceive to exist today with Israel. They're not shy about it generally, they just weren't explicit about it in this resolution.

Let me ask you. Should US citizens be able to protest Israel if they feel they are violating human rights?

First of all, this:

She starts off with the rights of individuals which is a constitutional right and no state law to prevent it would stand under legal scrutiny. The state laws to prevent boycotts are referring to laws preventing government boycotts. THe only such laws being discussed now are ones to prevent targetting of Israel. I do not think that states should be setting their own foreign policies.

Second of all, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but factually speaking, some opinions are wrong.

To the point where, when they want to persuade people that BDS is justified, they'll bring in someone who believes in boycotts against many countries...but the only one they're applying that to is Israel.

Thanks and I wasn't aware of the state laws being discussed.

The resolution doesn't state it explicitly, but that's obviously where she's going with it.

Yes I did. You are mistaken that resolution is comparing anything. She gave examples where we have correctly protested actions here and abroad. One of those acknowledgements was the dehumanizing of Jews.

I will ask you the same questions.
As written what do you disagree with the resolution?
Are you against protesting atrocities abroad?
I will repeat. I don't think that it actually compared. But by listing previous boycotts and their reasons, it leans in that direction. Definitely gives a bad taste, even if there is nothing technically wrong with what it says.

Never said I agree. Just that I don't disagree. It's all about nuance. I see it's not a permanent thing. :)

Even some R's understand what is going on.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told reporters that such cries "have no place in our party and no place in this country."

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois tweeted that the "send her back" chant was "ugly, wrong, & would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers. This ugliness must end, or we risk our great union."

But I am sure they all agree to send her back from where she came from, as she is an Anti American! and only people that suffer from TDS dont see that.

The Nazi groups of 70-80's use pretend they hated blacks when their real target was Jews. You are doing the same thing by saying she is anti-American when really she is anti-Israel. It didn't work then and isn't going to work now.

The resolution does not. Where she's going with this is that just like we, as a country, decided it was just and right to boycott Nazi Germany, it is similarly just and right that we should boycott Israel.
