This ridiculous. The newest attack by the Howler Monkey Press is that Trump displayed his deep seated hostility to the Jews by making this statement.
“It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust. It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror.”
Did you catch it? Did you see the outrageously outragey thing that he did there? No? Here is the rest of the statement where he brazenly repeats his crime.
Yet, we know that in the darkest hours of humanity, light shines the brightest. As we remember those who died, we are deeply grateful to those who risked their lives to save the innocent,”
“In the name of the perished, I pledge to do everything in my power throughout my Presidency, and my life, to ensure that the forces of evil never again defeat the powers of good,” he concluded. “Together, we will make love and tolerance prevalent throughout the world.”
What an anti-Semitic monster this man must be for issuing this statement — or so some idiot by the name of David Gibson writing for USA Today would have us believe.
In case you are still scratching your head over what is so objectionable (and thus proving yourself sane) some people (who are not sane) are screeching over the fact that Trump did not say the word “Jew.” That is it. That is the proof that he is an anti-Semite or whatever it is that they think they can impute from his choice of words.
Oh, never mind that Obama met with Iranian representatives to map out which lies to tell to the American people and Congress so that they could convince everyone to let Iran continue its nuclear program. Never mind how Obama stabbed the Israelis in the back at the UN in a way that really can’t be undone, and that will make it all but impossible for a peace plan to be put in place. Nooooooooooooo, none of that is worth any show of outrage by the mainstream press. But by God, if Trump does not use the word “Jew” when talking about the Holocaust then we need to fire up the outrage engines and load the poo catapults.
This is the most fucking ridiculous and absurd thing I have ever seen in my life. What the fuck is wrong with our press these days? I apologize for the profanity, but really, what is wrong with them? I know they are partisan operatives, but do they not at least realize that articles like this one are nothing short of in-kind contributions to Trump’s reelection campaign? He couldn’t buy press like this!
And the most ironic part of it is that Trump is being attacked for practicing the inclusivity that progressives claim to want. If the howler monkeys would just shut up for a second and stop egging each other on in their fear/threat displays, they might be able to do a little study and understand that many of the people who were sent to the death camps were put there for being gypsies or gays!
It is important to point out that this isn’t The Onion, or a parody (as if it would be possible to parody this lot). This is a mainstream newspaper, quoting mainstream organizations who think they can score political points over this because… well because… wait a minute I will think of something…. nope………………………………………………………………………………….
(insert Arthur C. Clark passage of time sequence from 2001)……………….. nope, and nope!
I am pretty sure the universe could wind down from heat death and if every supercomputer were put on the effort from now until then none of them would be able to spit out an answer as to why this would be beneficial to those who dislike Trump.
Here is the truth. The left hopes to make people believe Trump is some sort of monster by pretending to be appalled at perfectly normal and rational things that he does. This is what passes for intellectual discourse on their side. Everything is six degrees of racism so that they can get to the performance-outrage art complete with puppets and George Soros checks. We all see this. The left sees every issue through the lens of race or gender because they are racists and genderists. They are congenitally incapable of looking at people as human beings, or as individuals. Everyone is the member of a group. Trump must honor the collective, not the individuals who suffered and died or he has committed wrongthink.
And this is the crux of social justice. Individuals do not exist except as members of groups, and every slight visited upon one group member by a member of another group can result in punishment of anyone in the second group — which oddly enough was exactly what Hitler thought. Trump’s offense here wasn’t in failing to acknowledge the victims of the Holocaust. It was in not reducing their humanity down to a membership card — and a membership card that not all of the victims shared at that.
