  2. The whole “Trump” and “rising anti-Semitism” thing was bogus end-to-end.

    Muslims who want to say “Trump, hates Muslims” or “Trump encourages ‘Islamophobia’” at least they have some material to work with. Trump doesn’t seem like much of a hater, but from his statements at least seems to think there’s a problem with Islam and maybe even would be happy with no more Muslims.

    Mexicans who want to say “Trump hates Mexicans” or “Trump encourages hate against Mexicans”, that’s more of stretch, but at least Trump’s characterizations of illegals, some as rapists (which of course is true) give them some ammunition.

    Blacks, it’s basically complete nonsense. Trump didn’t sign onto the BLM riots. But there’s no sign Trump has any issues with blacks at all. But blacks calling any Republican racist is pretty much per spec.

    But the Jews? Please. There’s not only no sign Trump doesn’t like Jews, there’s a bunch of signs he’s completely comfortable with Jews. Zero anti-Semitic anything. And the flyover country white people that are his base are about as philo-Semitic as any non-Jews are going to get. When i started hearing all these lefty Jews with their dark tales of “rising anti-Semitism”, i was like “huh? say what?” It just smacked of try-hard. I think for some Jews, if you say anything about immigration == anti-Semitic. (No analysis just automatic.) But most i think it was that other groups getting to whine about being “targeted” by Trump … but we’re the world’s official top victims so … uh … “anti-Semitism!” Really pathetic.

    But, what’s the point of ginning up the hate, if you can’t be part of the mob? Jews have sharp elbows when it comes to demanding a space in the oppressed people’s crowd. (My guess is as the future rolls out they are going to need them more and more.)

    Jews are now accustomed to dominance.

    New 'antisemitism' is not favoring Jewish concerns and interests over others at all times.

    Jews now complain of 'antisemitism' to maintain favoritism.

    Jews, gays, and blacks have something in common, and it's not being hated by Trump. They're all part of the Left Gang, is all.

    You left out Wymyn, whom the MSM and the opposition campaign banked on to win against Trump. Remember when Alicia Machado was their big hand? Trump doesn't have a woman problem, in my opinion. He's just a typical Alpha Male who treats women like Alpha Male treats women, women who look and/or act like men (Rosie O'Donnell, Megyn Kelly) like men. But that was at least plausible, unlike with blacks, Jews, and homos.

    "if you say anything about immigration == anti-Semitic."

    The wall is anti-semitic? Who knew Mexico is a Jewish country. Mexican food doesn't look very kosher because it always mixes meat and cheese together. I can't believe Mexican food got certified as kosher by all of the world's rabbis.

    , @unpc downunder
    The opposition to Trump has a clear geographic pattern. Urban-based white liberals, women and minorities all hate Trump. That's why the big city protests against Trump attract so many people. Despite coming from a big city and living in a tower block, Trump is seen as an existential threat to the livelihoods of urban people, which includes diaspora Jews, single white collar women, blacks, gays, Asians and left-liberal bohemians.

    Over the last 40 years, western big cities have thrived on open borders, free trade, financial liberalisation, identity politics and the education industrial complex (you only have to look at urban real estate prices to see this). Anything which threatens to undermine these ultra-liberal policies and divert wealth to the hinterland is seen as a threat to the economic health of western big cities.

  3. Anon • Disclaimer says:

    Real non-white violence in Sweden. Trump says it’s real. Media says HUH????????

    Fake Nazi violence in the US. Trump says it might be fake. Media says WHAT???????

    Trump notices patterns better on migrant crisis and hate hoaxes(or libels) than the Media do.
    It wouldn’t be so bad if the media were just inept or stupid. What’s terrible, even outrageous, is that people in the media know damn well what the reality is but go ‘groundhog day’ in rebooting the narrative as if all the hate hoaxes hadn’t happened and the only thing worth remembering is Emmitt Till. Politically incorrect data can only exist as short term memory. They are not allowed to become part of long term memory or the narrative. Like in MEMENTO.

    So, if something happens again, we will have the same narrative replay by the media that learns nothing because it enforces selective amnesia.

    It’s like the procedure in ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND.

    We have Eternal eclipse of the clueless mind.

    He does have an uncanny knack for making observations that then become true after the fact.

    I think a lot of this reality bending is basically what the media do (or does, depending on whether you treat media as plural or singular). Bannon, who was in the media business recognizes this obviously. Breitbart has been all about offering a counter-narrative and that is basically what Trump does with his tweets. It's like he is whispering in people's ears in the middle of the night. With less than 150 characters he is creating verbal sigils or memes that go directly into the subconscious mind and take on a reality of their own through repetition.

    The MSM can complain about his inaccuracies — and there are some inaccuracies — but he zings them right back about their own inaccuracies. "I'm propagating 'fake news'? No, you are propagating 'fake news'!" It takes it all down several notches to a schoolyard level of discourse: "You're stupid!" "I know you're stupid, but what am I?"

    It's as if the alternate reality we were flung into by 9/11 was replaced by the alternate reality created by Obama's election(s), which has been, in turn, replaced by the alternate reality evoked since Trump's election. Somewhere behind the scene, Michael J. Fox and the Professor are madly zipping back and forth between future and past trying to keep up with and fix all the anomalies.
  11. How does one “hint darkly” by saying it is “the reverse”?

  19. I think maybe we Jews in America miss the old fashioned antisemitism we romanticize from a earlier time. When I was a kid we had swastikas painted on our house by neighbors who hated us possibly unrelated to our religion. Fifteen years later a fellow med student surprised me by using the phrase “Jew him down” to indicate negotiation. I had never heard that. That’s about it for me.

    A secret longing for the old fashioned Jew hating might explain why so many are in favor of importing people from countries with a more recent tradition of the violent type of antisemitism.

    "Despite coming from a big city and living in a tower block, Trump is seen as an existential threat to the livelihoods of urban people..."

    Not in spite of it, but BECAUSE of it. Trump is a rich New Yorker. On paper, he's the epitome of "one of us," to the ruling elites. But he's chosen a different path. Instead of feeling annoyed condescension toward the masses, he seems to genuinely need their love. Whether he actually cares about the masses, or it's just a manifestation of his incredible ego, the fact remains that he's chosen to seek the approval of the wrong side. He chose the unwashed masses over the Beautiful People. He (literally) chose cheeseburgers over caviar, and the language of peasants over that of MSNBC pundits. Even worse, he made that choice after years of association with those Beautiful People, and with the full knowledge that they had welcomed him as one of them. It makes no difference what he believes, or what he does. He could bring universal peace, prosperity, and love to the entire world. He could end all suffering, and even death itself, and it wouldn't matter the slightest bit. Because he's a traitor. It's that simple.

    The opposition to Trump has a clear geographic pattern. Urban-based white liberals, women and minorities all hate Trump. That's why the big city protests against Trump attract so many people. Despite coming from a big city and living in a tower block, Trump is seen as an existential threat to the livelihoods of urban people, which includes diaspora Jews, single white collar women, blacks, gays, Asians and left-liberal bohemians.

    Over the last 40 years, western big cities have thrived on open borders, free trade, financial liberalisation, identity politics and the education industrial complex (you only have to look at urban real estate prices to see this). Anything which threatens to undermine these ultra-liberal policies and divert wealth to the hinterland is seen as a threat to the economic health of western big cities.

    “Trump is seen as an existential threat to the livelihoods of urban people, which includes diaspora Jews, single white collar women, blacks, gays, Asians and left-liberal bohemians.”

    Trump is also seen as an existential theeat to Hispanics, hence why almost 70 percent of Hispanics voted for Crooked Cankles. Donald J. Trump did not win a single majority Hispanic county.

    You look at Florida, Donald J. Trump won White Redneck Gringo Northern Florida while Crooked Cankles won Vibrantly Diverse Hispanic Southern Florida.

    So .. is Trump actually blessed by Providence then? I don’t really believe in luck as such, so I have to presume Trump basically controls reality with his mind? Like one of the first of a future race of supermen for whom reality bends to suit him??
     
    He does have an uncanny knack for making observations that then become true after the fact.

    I think a lot of this reality bending is basically what the media do (or does, depending on whether you treat media as plural or singular). Bannon, who was in the media business recognizes this obviously. Breitbart has been all about offering a counter-narrative and that is basically what Trump does with his tweets. It's like he is whispering in people's ears in the middle of the night. With less than 150 characters he is creating verbal sigils or memes that go directly into the subconscious mind and take on a reality of their own through repetition.

    The MSM can complain about his inaccuracies — and there are some inaccuracies — but he zings them right back about their own inaccuracies. "I'm propagating 'fake news'? No, you are propagating 'fake news'!" It takes it all down several notches to a schoolyard level of discourse: "You're stupid!" "I know you're stupid, but what am I?"

    It's as if the alternate reality we were flung into by 9/11 was replaced by the alternate reality created by Obama's election(s), which has been, in turn, replaced by the alternate reality evoked since Trump's election. Somewhere behind the scene, Michael J. Fox and the Professor are madly zipping back and forth between future and past trying to keep up with and fix all the anomalies.

    “Michael J. Fox and the Professor are madly zipping back and forth between future and past trying to keep up with and fix all the anomalies.”

    Donald J. Trump has been compared to the Biff Tannen of Back To The Future Part 2 where he is a multi-billionare who runs Hill Valley.

    Not in spite of it, but BECAUSE of it. Trump is a rich New Yorker. On paper, he’s the epitome of “one of us,” to the ruling elites. But he’s chosen a different path. Instead of feeling annoyed condescension toward the masses, he seems to genuinely need their love. Whether he actually cares about the masses, or it’s just a manifestation of his incredible ego, the fact remains that he’s chosen to seek the approval of the wrong side. He chose the unwashed masses over the Beautiful People. He (literally) chose cheeseburgers over caviar, and the language of peasants over that of MSNBC pundits. Even worse, he made that choice after years of association with those Beautiful People, and with the full knowledge that they had welcomed him as one of them. It makes no difference what he believes, or what he does. He could bring universal peace, prosperity, and love to the entire world. He could end all suffering, and even death itself, and it wouldn’t matter the slightest bit. Because he’s a traitor. It’s that simple.

    One does not simply attack his God Emperor without being punished in an ironic manner.

    I’m still bursting into random laughter over their assertion that Trump “hinted darkly.”

  33. @Jack Hanson
    Trump is saying Obama had Trump Tower bugged.

    The media is jumping all over this as HAHAHAHA HE HAS NO EVIDENCE.

    Whatever will act III of this play look like, I wonder?

    Throughout the campaign Trump repeatedly showed that he has better INTELLIGENCE than his opposition.

    I think maybe we Jews in America miss the old fashioned antisemitism we romanticize from a earlier time. When I was a kid we had swastikas painted on our house by neighbors who hated us possibly unrelated to our religion. Fifteen years later a fellow med student surprised me by using the phrase "Jew him down" to indicate negotiation. I had never heard that. That's about it for me.

    A secret longing for the old fashioned Jew hating might explain why so many are in favor of importing people from countries with a more recent tradition of the violent type of antisemitism.

    But the fact that you’re ruining things for the rest of us may spark a resurgence of the old-fashioned kind. In all of that, just not seeing that much-prattled “Heal the World” crap.

  35. It’s no surprise the ADL has to periodically gin up anti-Semitism in the headlines to fund junkets, etc, as in the film, ‘Defamation.’

    It’s no surprise these hate hoaxes have become so predictable that they have been our default assumption for years now on the dissident right. Not that the ADL organizes the hoaxes, though ADL people may be involved in some as individuals for all I know, but by their publicity machine the ADL does constitute a mutual-benefit society with the hoaxers.

    It’s no surprise that normies, who seem to have no memory for news more than a few days old, are swayed by this nonsense, year after year.

    What is surprising is how long it is taking the normies to catch on. But catch on they are.

    Haven Monahavenitler strikes again!

    In conjunction with this Oops story the MSM ran a “vandalized Jewish cemetery” story, with something like 40 headstones toppled over. Two Oops is a trend, they always say, and that makes it for real!

    NYPD: Vandalism Not Behind Toppled Headstones At Jewish Cemetery”, CBS New York, March 5:

    “…The New York Police Department says no evidence of vandalism has been found at a predominantly Jewish cemetery where more than 40 tombstones were toppled over…

    …it was determined the 42 tombstones came down as a result of a number of factors. Those include long-term neglect or lack of maintenance, as well as environmental factors such as soil erosion.”

    The evil KKK is now conspiring to use long-term neglect as a weapon! Pass it on.

    I don’t know specific wherefores or whys, but it seems like there almost must be some truth to this.

    Maybe it’s like a big storm when everything seems so much more electric. An emergency that makes everything seem so much more important. All of a sudden the ordinary guy with a flashlight is a big important somebody.

    Being hated makes one feel so much more important and central. A big deal. It’s urgent. People care.

    Being ignored by Haven Monahan truly marks one as a nobody looser.

  39. Just because the powerful Federal Reserve is controlled by American and Israeli Jews and the US Treasury is dominated by American Jews and Congress happily gives billions each year in free money and billions more in free weaponry to Israel, while telling Americans we’re too broke to fix our infrastructure doesn’t mean Israel controls the USA.

    From an April 2003 Haaretz article:

    The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history. Two of them, journalists William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, say it’s possible.

    This is a war of an elite. [Tom] Friedman laughs: I could give you the names of 25 people (all of whom are at this moment within a five-block radius of this office) who, if you had exiled them to a desert island a year and a half ago, the Iraq war would not have happened.
