    This is a very good sign. I am slightly encouraged.

  2. Until the left and Liberals start publicly abhorring and rejecting Muslim states being under Sharia and other religious laws, they need to shut up about Israel being influenced by Jewish Law. I personally don't think the latter is the greatest idea but it's up to Israelis, not narcissistic leftists.

  3. You're gonna need a bigger flagpole if the Dems get elected. The left is way upset that American Embassy requests to fly the Rainbow flag under the American flagpole. Well.....how ya gonna choose between the Rainbow flag between a gay flag and the flags of other intersectional victims groups flags? Ethical you can't so.....get a bigger flagpole and fly 'em all you racist SOB's. Oh.....but no Israeli flags or Confederate flags please.

  4. The Rainbow flag? There is a country called Rainbowland or something? I don't get it.
    Maybe someone should write a book about it, "From fags to flags."

    In other news: There is a lying epidemic.

    PERSONAL COMMENT:

    Given that the mainstream-news-media
    ignored the increase in anti-Semitic
    attacks in New York City, how can they
    be trusted to report about Israel fairly?

    “I refuse to bend over backward
    to single out Israel – or other
    things Jewish – for super-scrutiny.

    I refuse to gloat, as so many in academia and
    the media seem to, over Israel’s shortcomings.”

    writer and journalist) said:


    “The mainstream media has abandoned
    all pretense of objectivity.

    Whereas in the past journalists viewed
    themselves as unbiased chroniclers of
    the news, their focus today is on
    manufacturing it and dominating
    the ensuing conversations.

    A journalist’s influence today isn’t
    determined by the quality or accuracy
    of their reporting, but rather the size
    of their Twitter following and the
    frequency of their television appearances.”

    “Indeed, Palestinians rarely make an

    of their leaders, the [Washington] Post
    is nowhere to be found.”

  11. SUGGESTION 1:

    A new blog thread about how to battle Israel's enemies.

    SUGGESTION 2:

    A new blog thread about why the Far Left hates Israel.

    Recently I have done significant work on both
    topics, and I feel ready to share what I wrote.

    1. That Stephen Harper video is excellent. I can't say that I am in complete agreement with him, because I don't believe that antisemitism should ever be hyphenated as it is in that video. Other than that, one should notice the BTL comments. All Mr. Harper needed to do is mention antisemitism and antisemites come in swarming like moths to a flame.

  14. Is this logical:

    He [Rabbi Meir Kahane] pointed out that:

    “Since [year] 1948, every Arab country,
    including Syria, Algeria, Morocco, Tripoli,
    Iraq, and Yemen, has pressured-out
    or forcibly removed their Jews.

    Therefore, why shouldn’t Israel,
    likewise, remove Arabs?”

    1. Because Jews don't do that. Democracies don't do that. In fact, several North African countries, as they inch towards democracy, are at least de jure fair to Jews.

    1. I have commented many times on the nexus between antiZionism and antiSemitism. The two feed off each other and antiZionists/ProPalestinians almost invariably resort to antisemitic images and messages EVEN THOUGH THEY DON'T HAVE To to make their points. That fact alone shows the racism/bigotry/ Jew Hate at the center of their "cause." This is not rocket science although you'd almost think it was given the large numbers of apologies for "stupid mistakes," or "I didn't realize," from all these clowns.

    2. I would like Mr. Cusack to tell me how many little girls have been stabbed to death in their beds by Zionists, since Mr. Cusack throws the word "atrocity" around so casually. The level of his awareness is an atrocity; an affront to truth and justice which arises from fairness, he is an aide and salve to the hateful ignorance of the Bigot.

    Ocasio-Cortez Gets Head Stuck In Bucket, Journalists Rush To Explain Why It Was Actually A Genius Move
    June 20th, 2019

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Wednesday, New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez somehow got her head stuck inside a bucket. She was heard yelling, “Who turned out the lights?” while repeatedly running full speed into walls. Republicans immediately pounced, using this as proof that Ocasio-Cortez is “kind of a dummy.” Many journalists, on the other hand, leaped to Ocasio-Cortez’s defense, saying her getting her head firmly wedged inside of a plastic bucket was further proof of her being an intelligent and dynamic politician.

    “Most people don’t have her scientific curiosity and intelligence,” said MSNBC pundit Chris Hayes. “Someone incurious like Trump would never look at a bucket and ask ‘Could my head fit inside that?’ But Ocasio-Cortez dives into such questions head first.”

    “She is making a bold statement,” said CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “The bucket on her head is from Walmart, and she is saying loud and clear that corporations have blinded us all.”

    Many activists also defended Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter, though they seemed confused about exactly how to defend her, some talking about how buckets are important to society and others calling for the destruction of all buckets.

    As for Ocasio-Cortez, she is doubling down and refusing to apologize, even though the incident caused a huge delay for the Capitol janitorial staff."

  17. Alan Dershowitz: Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Concentration Camps’ Comparison Makes Her a ‘Holocaust Denier’

    Of course, Omar has now joined the fray and defended AOC. What bigots they are. They will magnify perceived slights into "racism" yet blatantly practice antisemitism for the adherents to their religion. Worse than fundamentalists.

    They may believe they're making a difference for good, but it's just as likely they are helping many more see how harmful they would be. Life under AOC or Omar would be dreadful.
