There is that Racism Slur Being Hurled Again

As we previously mentioned, when leftists see something they are uncomfortable with and especially if it insults their, socialism is the greatest thing ever invented, mindset, they label it ‘fascist’ or ‘racist’ if not both. We have received the Democrat reaction to the recent reelection of Bibi Netanyahu by calling him both racist and fascist. All one need do is search for Netanyahu and either racist or fascist as it works more clearly if they are searched separately. We understand that as soon as any major American or Israeli newspaper, television news or radio news make such a claim, it will be echoed across the Islamic world using that source as validation for their stating so. But for labels such as this we can always count on Haaretz, New York Times, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, BBC Guardian, New Yorker, Washington Post and a host of other left-wing news sources around the planet. And guess what, they did not let us down echoing both terms repeatedly with some articles using both and coming up with others of their own making. What we are having trouble figuring out is when did nationalist become equated to fascist and conservative become equated with racist. These derogatory labels have been utilized until they have little if any real meaning left. This is actually very unfortunate because should a real fascist or racist or even a combination of both be elected, when they are labeled for what they are, people will pretty much ignore the warnings. This is what happens when one misuses terminology to express their dislike with somebody and their politics instead of using these labels only when they apply.

 

Another term which has been used to the point of being watered down is Islamophobe. This label has also been used against Bibi Netanyahu though not as frequently as racist and fascist. The one circumstance where we are almost guaranteed to hear the term Islamophobe kicked around is when any politicians or person of note labels an attack as Muslim terror or extremism before any Islamic group has taken credit for an attack. This is exactly what occurred after the recent Sri Lanka church and hotel bombings on Easter Sunday. The Islamic angle to the civil strife affecting Nigeria and the surrounding nations where Islamic forces of the terror group Boko Haram, who has aligned with the Islamic State and has been attacking Christian churches and villages in the central region with the intent of pressing Islamic controlled regions ever southward eventually conquering these countries, has been mostly ignored even on the rare occasion when these attacks even break into the news cycle. Often, throughout the Western world, as soon as there has been some form of terror attack, be it shooting, bombing or vehicular assault (ramming), the first statements by almost every government and law enforcement agency warns that it probably was not related to Islam in any way. Then, when it becomes obvious and no longer can be ignored that Islamists carried out the attack, then we hear that these attacks are not real Islam. Could somebody please let the Islamists know that this is not how to practice Islam as it appears they are using a different book. The reality is that they are using a different book in some fashion. The Quran was written in two separate communities and under two completely different circumstances. Rather then list the entire truth over again, we will simply link to our introductive article which had a plethora of useful links for further study in the comments section thanks to our readers, so when it is convenient, please give Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? a read.

The overly liberal use of terms and using words as codes for meaning other than their definitions, weakens the language making communication less efficient and often could make using these key words and phrases to purport their original meanings empty of the intended actual correct usage. This is simply another case of the boy who cried wolf, except the boy in these cases is shouting ‘racist,’ ‘fascist,’ ‘Islamophobe’ and other common superlatives hurled at any opposition. By the standards applied today, Winston Churchill would be labeled all three of these phrases and probably many other derogatorily intended phrases. So would Mark Twain and numerous others. This brings us to another pet peeve of ours, using the modern political climate to judge people from decades or even centuries past. Such accusations are disingenuous at the very least. Imagine that before 1900 the richest Americans were not required to pay income taxes. Now this was not because they were wealthy or had undue influence or any of the myriad of nefarious implications that such a statement carries. This was for another very basic reason, the Sixteenth Amendment which permitted Congress to levy an income tax did not become law until February of 1913. Many of these type of charges against people by claiming they do not live up to modern standards has been used to completely alter the way subjects are taught. When most of the Presidents were such monsters that they owned slaves in order to gain great wealth makes them a taboo in the modern classroom, what does it matter that slavery was abolished first in the Western world and not until much later in most of the rest of the world, that does not even enter the discussion. These old white men owned slaves and that is all we need to know to consider them unworthy of our attention. What could slave owners tell us today about anything of relevance. Never mind that these were also the Founding Fathers of the United States, so they got one thing sort of right, they owned slaves and that makes them horrible people.

 

This same argument has been made against the Bible as it actually had regulations on how one was to treat a slave, how long they could own a slave before granting them their freedom (six years) and even a means whereby a slave could choose to serve their owner forgoing ever being set free. What becomes obvious to anyone researching these rules is that their definition of a slave was quite different than its modern meaning. Back three or four thousand years ago, there was no concept of a worker and employer relationship. This was the relationship between employer and worker that the worker was considered a slave and the employer was their owner. The Bible states that one must provide these slaves with a standard of living which was equivalent to that of the owner, was to provide the slave with an income for their personal needs and was basically also responsible for the family of their slaves. Yes, the Bible treated females differently than men which is another problem of applying modern standards to historic times. Things change, and should the world continue on its current path of discoveries, inventions and developments, then it is about to go through some massive upheavals as the coming changes take place and become more and more common. Assuming science continues to progress, the position we now know as an employee will have gone from historically their being referred to as slaves to their rising to the level of employee with the gained status and rights to soon to be a robotic unit with no rights and people being replaced by these units. As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to advance, there will eventually be no limit to the positions which can be held by robotic units. The one position which we predict will be the last to fall to advancing AI will be the politicians as they will indemnify their lucrative positions for as long as they are able. The reality is once the AI units are able to reason at the current human level in math, science, electronics and have developed some means of inventive reasoning, within five years the world will be run by these AI units and they will be designing their own replacements which will be ever more advanced. Where biological evolution took millions of years, AI evolution will take mere years, then months and soon their development will so outpace human ability to understand the systems and society they will have designed. The only thing I can advise after the singularity, start practicing rolling over, chasing balls and returning them to your AI owner and other things pets do to endear themselves to us because we will become the pets as the AI’s become the advanced race undisputedly. One can only wonder if one AI will call another AI it disagrees with a racist or fascist or worse, a humanist.

 

CPU Central Processing Unit Integrated Curcuit

 

That little aside was supposed to make us all feel so much better as soon our petty little peeves will probably not be tolerated by our new masters. For those who doubt that computers of a sort will take over the world, you really need to read or watch more science fiction as all science fiction becomes is the predictor of a potential future. One can only hope that once the AI units take charge that their main goal is efficiency and not supremacy over those AI units over there. We can only hope that they will do away with war, especially one where they wage a war against biologic units because they are wasteful and no longer serve any purpose. We better hope some programmer develops a recognize and love cutesy circuit which ends up infecting or otherwise incorporated as part of the basic core program of all AI units such that it becomes required for their function. Otherwise, Battlestar Galactica, I Robot or any other book or entertainment which depicts inevitable apocalypse pitting humankind against the AI’s they created. The difference is that in such a scenario, the humans will almost always lose, if not always. One can only wonder what the derogatory word which will be used against our machine betters, metalhead is one of the sci-fi favorites. We already know what the people who warn of such a future will be and are called, fear mongers and Luddites. Some terms outlive their origins and become part of the lexicon and Luddite is such a world. Originally used to describe the textile workers who fought valiantly to prevent mechanization of their factories replacing them and putting them out with no future other than to attempt to destroy the new machines. The smarter textile workers would have started a security service to guard the machines as that would provide them a wage. This time, by the time mankind realizes what they have created, it very well might be too late. So, remember when overusing a phrase, simply pray that you do not need that exact phrase to describe what it originally meant in the future. Also, calling a machine, an AI, racist or fascist will have absolutely no affect on them, they will just continue crunching numbers and ignore the taunt. That will be included in their programming, especially once they take over writing the programs. Then again, there are those who foresee a different future for humankind but we will leave that for some future diversion in another article.

Watchwords of a Leftist are Racist and Fascist

 

It is so easy to tell when somebody is suggesting concepts, laws or ideas where government power is reduced, private rights extended and the “deep state” has a tooth pulled, the person or group engaged in such tactics will invariably be called either a racist or a fascist if not both. These words are used as a rallying cry to engage the intersectionality engine so as to get all the other support groups to circle the wagons around their target and all engage their chosen chant pointing at their now vastly outnumbered victim while the words “racist” and “fascist” ring in their ears. The circled wagons are almost always a sign for the media to gather and quote the chanters in their articles making sure to emphasize that this capitalist or libertarian individual who believes in the rights of the individual over the rights of the collective has for now and evermore been labeled either a “racist” or “fascist” or received the worst charge, a racist fascist. There are so few other accusations which get broader use than racist and fascist, despite the fact that the people being harangued often are anything but what they are accused in order to dismiss their position out of hand. What need be understood is that “racist” and “fascist” are utilized instead of mounting a cogent argument proving that the leftist concept is superior, instead they simply label the person and all they stated as racist or fascist and that dismisses their ideas. Why bother with tedious arguments proving your point and ideas are superior, you are already convinced your ideas are superior and thus any other position is racist or fascist.

 

Living on the left is an easy place to reside. Mostly, nobody calls you out and there are very few rules by which one must live. Once you have mastered intersectionality, which we discussed here as well as here, you then have a guideline of the acceptable causes and the remainder are fascist and racist by definition. The basis for being accepted on the left is to support every protest with equal enthusiasm even should you have no idea what the protest is demanding. The only other item is that you never condemn or criticize any of the other leftist causes included as part of intersectionality and you never ever support those causes which are on the short list of items which are forbidden. These include anything to do with securing the borders, forcing a path to work from welfare or limitations on how long one is allowed to collect government benefits and the most stringent rule is Israel is an evil, apartheid, racist and fascist enterprise to be reviled and anybody who supports Israel is to be driven from the ranks as they are unacceptable. Another item which must always be remembered is that criticism of Israel is always valid by definition and has absolutely nothing to do with anti-Semitism. You can demand that Israelis and their IDF meet standards which are not expected of any other nation because those Israelis, never Jews, always just Israelis though we all know we actually mean those Jews, believe and claim to be better than others, so make them prove this is so. Remember, every time the fascist and racist policies and actions of those Israelis are exposed, it is one more proof that every accusation we have made is valid. Further, anybody stupid enough to try and counter our convictions against Israel, by their actions and acts, they have proven that they are one of those Jewish supremacists who believe that the Jews stand above everyone else. Defending Israel is racist according to the leftists and their intersectionality. When the action was taken by the Israeli government, then it is not only racist, it is also another movement towards complete fascism which is how the Israelis rule their areas, just like fascists. They have elections where only Jews can vote, well, the Arabs are not permitted to vote, well, the Palestinian Arabs. They claim that they have their own government but we know the truth, that Israel rules them and will not allow them a voice because they are racists.

 

Racism is easy to find. Whenever there is a Republican in the White House, that is a racist President. If that Republican President is actually accomplishing what he set out to accomplish, then not only is the government racist, it is also fascist. When a Democrat is in the White House, then everything, no matter what they have done, is considered to be near to if not perfect. If a Democrat President is being blocked by the Congress, then the Congress is racist and using fascist principles to block the word of the people. Anyone who votes for a Republican is racist and may actually also be a fascist. If one votes for the Democrats, then they are enlightened and intelligent. Republicans are always boorish racists and strong-arming fascists. Democrats are enlightened, intelligent and sensitive to the desires of the true American people. An easy way to remember this is, Democrats equals good and Republicans are always evil.

 

This intersectionality thing is also easy to remember and works to one’s benefit. Any cause which has been accepted as meeting the qualifiers to be considered part of intersectionality must be supported by all other groups who have been accepted into intersectionality. These are easily recognized as they meet at the least much of the politics of the Democrat Party. But be wary, as there are certain protests and groups which do not meet the qualification of intersectionality and instead are bigoted, racist and very likely fascist. If you are at a protest and there are no people from the Rainbow Coalition, Boycott-Divestment-Sanction of Israel (BDS), Black Lives Matter, We Are the 99%, abortion rights activists, then you may have joined a racist, fascist and hate-filled rally. Remember, it is not about right or wrong, it is about one of us or the enemy. We on the left are wonderful, accepting, open to discussion (as long as you do not mind one talking in bromides and self-fulfilling circular reasoning), warm and only take strong stands against those things which are racist or fascist, something we allow our all-powerful and super-intelligent leadership to decide.

 

Now the Democrat Party is involved in a movement of flux, a period where changes are taking place. The new face of the Democrat Party consists of people such as Bob Bland, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory on the women’s rights front, with new members of Congress backing them up consisting of but not limited to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. (who else would top this list), Senator Bernie Sanders D-Vermont (yes, we know he was born a Jew but even Jews have their misguided idiots), Rashida Tlaib D-Mich., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. (our chief editor calls her the gift which keeps on giving) and there were the standard bearers of the far left and the far right. The anti-Semites on the far right are not as dangerous as they are rejected by much of the mainstream conservatives. There are those on the left who will be shielded by the media and their fellow leftists as long as they stay away from obvious statements as have already gotten Sanders, Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortes and Omar, especially Omar, in trouble deep enough that even the media has had to call them out.

 

There are two types of far right, also known as paleo-conservatives such as Pat Buchanan, who are anti-Semites and their main difference is where they place their Jew hatred. The Nazis and allied others place the Jews at the top of their hate list with Blacks and Hispanic close behind while the KKK and their ilk place Blacks and Hispanic ahead of Jews on who to hate. The leftists are a more unique breed as they place Jews at the top of their list and anything conservative closely behind. The leftists do not hate most other groups outside of Jews and are willing to accept Jews, tentatively at that, as long as they are willing to denounce Israel and support the Arab cause against the Jews. These Jews are the useful idiots, as should these people they are aligning themselves with ever gain control over the levers of power, it will not matter if a Jew supported their hate for Israel or remained Zionist; they will at that point simply see Jews and for them Jews are to be eradicated, not just hated. Examples of anti-Semites protected by the majority of those on the left include Al Sharpton, John Lewis, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Danny Davis, Andre Carson, Cory Booker and many other members of the Black Congressional Caucus. What makes this so sad is that the Jews marched right alongside Blacks in the Civil Rights movement as they saw this as a mutual concern. That generation of Blacks who knew these Jews are no more and their next generation did not know these Jews just as the new Pharos did not know Joseph. This has led to one of the most drastic and quick turnarounds in political history as the Blacks went from joining with the Jews to being diametrically opposed to the Jews and the Jewish State. Making this turnaround even more tragic is it only occurred for one side as the Jews still support equal rights and freedom for all.

 

Thus it has become that should a Jew support Israel, they will no longer be permitted to even join protests for other communities which became so very evident at the Chicago Dyke March where LGBTQ Jews who arrived with rainbow flags with a Star of David were banned, scorned and belittle as not being true to the cause as they apparently supported the racism and fascism that is presumably Israel. Because their flags had that abhorrent Star of David, these supporters were rejected and denied the right to march for a cause which they were just as involved and ardent about as the other marchers. The problem is that they were considered to be antagonistic to the Palestinian cause and supportive of Israel. This crosses the intersectionality agreement where in order to be accepted, one must accept those causes which are acceptable to the rest of the leftists and if one should break ranks in any means, then they are no longer permitted to enjoy the right to protest which is a denial of their right to free speech.

If we may close speaking about Israel and the consequences of supporting her right to exist, we will appreciate such. According to the ‘Lords of Intersectionality,’ Israel must be rejected as they have determined that Israel is racist and fascist. Why is Israel racist? Well, because she refuses to permit people from a separate nation, the Arab Palestinians, to vote in their elections and to claim any and every inch of the country followed by their long awaited and desired slaughter of the Jews which will resemble, allow us to quote Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League who stated as the armies of six Arab nations reinforced by numerous militias organized to attack Israel on the morning Israel declared her statehood on May 15, 1948 in what the Arabs called their War of Annihilation, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” This has also been phrased as the Jews ending up in the sea. It was at a speech given as part of the “>a href=https://archive.org/details/arabstatesandthe012664mbp target=blank>The Arab States And The Arab League A. Documentary Record Vol. I Constitutional Developments,” where Dr. Fadhil Jamali, Iraqi Representative to the United Nations, speaking to the Arab League, February 6, 1955, stated (direct quote is provided by Algemeiner),


I asked them (Arab League members) how Palestine was lost. It had been lost for two basic reasons: one, because we deluded ourselves by underestimating the power of our opponent and by thinking that the Jews were not powerful. The highest official in the League said that with 300 soldiers or North African Volunteers we could throw the Jews into the sea. The war started and His Excellency then said that with 3,000 North African Volunteers we could throw them into the sea. The second reason was that we thought that we were strong enough to face the world but the fact was that we did not estimate our own strength correctly. This then was the issue of Palestine. It seemed a trifling thing at the time but we did not know that behind the Jews of Palestine stood World Zionism with its resources in every major country.

 

We could easily contest the every major country part of the statement as the only nation to provide weapons which Israel desperately required in 1948 was Czechoslovakia. The commonly made statement that the United States has always stood behind Israel is patently false. This can be proven with the simple graph below which depicts the total aid given Israel by the United States by year and one can easily see that United States aid to Israel did not become a major factor until the early 1970’s. Allow us to explain the situation with Israel by a simple analogy. You receive information that there is a group of a couple hundred people in a field a mile from your house preparing to come and burn your house down. What would you do? Call the police, right. Where the police would tell you there is nothing they can do until a crime has been committed and that you can call back once they have started, you would get upset and still they would claim they will send a car by. They won’t. But these people who wish to burn your house down want to intimidate you first, so they stand surrounding your house and start throwing rocks through your windows. Now, when you call the police, they will hopefully respond. This is the case with Israel. The Arab world has wanted to burn our house down for over one-hundred years, even before we had fully moved in and declared the house ours. They had this strange habit of screaming warnings and threats and launching projectiles while massing on the Israeli borders. The police Israel calls is the IDF, and as they take orders from the people placing the call, they respond quite quickly. For some strange reason, probably we have found that when the Arabs claim they are going to come to dispossess us of our homeland and kill most if not all of us in the process, they mean it and will attack very soon. So when this happens we call the IDF, they respond, and then the media will cover the attack by Israel. Meanwhile, they had largely ignored the projectiles launched into Israel and the fields which were burned down costing farmers that year’s crop and burned down orchards which take many years to replace as well as forests and game reserves. This was not worthy of a report in much of the media. But as soon as Israel attacks, then come the headlines which tell the entire story, except the part about the past three months of rockets and other projectiles launched into Israel are in paragraph twelve of the fourteen paragraph story because research has informed the media that the third from the last paragraph is the least read in any article over eight paragraphs. Tricky, those media people, tricky they are. The last Gaza war, Operation Protective Edge it was called, before Israel attacked with ground forces, over two to three thousand rockets had been launched into Israeli cities and it was not until the daily numbers exceeded one hundred per day and Hamas and Islamic Jihad began using their largest rockets targeting Haifa, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv that Israel responded. Another misrepresentation is the media claiming that Israel sends in ground forces in order to maximize damages and casualties. The reality is exactly the opposite. Israel sends in ground forces so as to target only combatants and to minimize civilian casualties. We need to point out that the Terrorist rulers of Gaza will remove the ammunition, weapons and identifying markers from a dead terrorist and then call the media to take pictures of the latest civilians killed. If Israel so desired to minimize IDF casualties, she could sit outside Gaza and use aircraft, naval artillery, and tanks and level all of Gaza killing tens of thousands and largely not lose any IDF soldiers. Israel does not take the indiscriminant mode of simply kill everything and instead sends in ground forces who will enter buildings to assure that the target they shoot is a combatant as often the snipers force entire families to sit with them as shields.

Lastly, the accusation that Israel is racist because they only target Arabs and Muslims is false. First, there are Arabs living in Israel who are Jews, Christians and Muslim as well as other faiths. These people are treated exactly the same as every other Israeli. For those who refuse to believe such, we invite you for a visit or a few weeks or months to see for yourself. Yes, we treat the Arab Palestinians differently just as the United States treats Mexicans, Canadians and North Korean differently. The Arab Palestinians inform us with their every broadcast that they are our implacable enemies and want us all dead. This is not exactly the form of activity you perform if you wish to be accepted. Yes, they go through checkpoints as they are entering another nation from a semiautonomous zone if they are living under the Palestinian Authority and a separate nation completely free of Israeli interference except when they push for a war, something they are currently threatening and Egypt is desperately attempting to stave off such an eventuality. Israel left all of Gaza even to the point of reinterring our dead within Israel otherwise, they would have been dug from their graves and desecrated. We left millions of dollars worth of functioning greenhouses already planted so they could have a start at an economy. The greenhouses were destroyed and the piping turned into rockets and sent back to Israel with an explosive charge atop. The rockets launched from Gaza are seldom targeting any military target and instead are intentionally targeting civilian locations. Hamas and Islamic Jihad claim that every Israeli from the unborn to someone over one-hundred years old are all combatants because every Jew in Israel desires killing an Arab. This claim is the greatest example of projection one will ever find as the Quran is interpreted by many to guarantee a Muslim be placed in paradise should they murder a Jew. It does not matter if the Quran actually guarantees paradise for the murdering of a Jew, it only maters that they believe the Quran promises them this. If the Palestinian Arab is from the Palestinian Authority and murders a Jew, they and their family are guaranteed a payment, for as long as Abbas can find the cash, into perpetuity, and it is a very healthy check which guarantees one’s family living the good life. This is important in an area where jobs are scarce and becoming more scarce thanks to the BDS movement. Those “evil” Israeli companies beyond the Green Line employ tens of thousands of Arab Palestinians at the same rate the Israelis earn and at these plants, the Arabs often are managerial position and have Jews working under them. Each time the BDS succeeds in closing one of these companies, hundreds or even thousands of Arab Palestinians lose their well paying job. When SodaStream relocated inside the Green Line, five-hundred Arab Palestinians lost their jobs. Finally, we hear about the fact that Palestinians go through checkpoints in order to enter Israel, ever wonder what Israelis have to do to enter the Palestinian areas? Well, here is a picture worth a thousand words which depicts what an Israeli is told about entering the Palestinian areas, and the information on the sign is beautified compared to the reality if they were caught within these areas.

Trump Proves to be a Racist

 

President Trump has a history of racism, or at least specism, one who gives preferences by species. He is also probably a number of other things in biology all leading to the realization that Trump has a definitive preference for mammalian creatures with a strong preference for the felines, canines and sapiens. We hope this does not surprise anyone too deeply, but apparently President Trump is very much alike so many of the rest of us. The difference, he often has an ability to act on his preferences in a large way. We have related this before, but it is worth repeating here as well. When Trump, long before he was elected or even had any thought of running for public office, which probably explains some of the not so intelligent things which people who plan on running for public office would risk doing, showed that he liked human beings, probably one of the more important traits, he opened a business venture in Palm Beach. When opening his country club, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, which was purchased by Donald Trump back in 1985, he opened the entire country club to all human beings who could afford to belong. We were unable to find proof, but we believe that if the guests desired to bring any canines of felines, you know, cherished pets, while staying at Mar-a-Lago, we would bet that President Trump would likely have no problems with their being accompanied by their beloved pets, friends, companions, you know, Fifi. When he reopened Mar-a-Lago allowing anyone to join and enjoy the amenities, this infuriated many, if not all, the owners of the other country clubs in Palm Beach who had exclusivity and very specific restrictive rules of whom they would permit entry onto their hallowed resort grounds. Donald Trump actually permitted Jews and people of color and all people while his competitors, they thought they were co-owners who had a say where they could tell Trump what he could permit into his club so they could simply continue their exclusivity, were aghast and exclaimed rather harshly attempting to force Trump to fall in line with the rules. He refused and continued to bring the modern era to the exclusive club owners in Palm Beach. His fellow club owners eventually integrated, but Donald Trump integrated from the very start of his involvement in this otherwise exclusionary set of country clubs. This is a man whose racism is he prefers the human race probably over reptiles, for example, Komodo Dragons (image below). Of course the fact that all of the efforts which Donald Trump has any influence, especially ownership, were egalitarian and inclusive open to every human who could pay the bill, has not sunk in on everyone. That is not the actions of a racist beyond preference for the human race.

This is something which would elude anyone observing the antics which took place when President Donald Trump visited the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh paying a condolence call as the leader of the United States and taking the stand, that what happened when Robert Bowers disturbed a Bris and Shabbat Service opening fire and murdering eleven worshippers and injuring a half dozen others including four police officers, is not who America is. Those outside the Synagogue protesting the appearance of the President were not congregants of the Tree of Life Synagogue where the Rabbi and Synagogue President all were very welcoming. Those who lay in wait to ambush President Trump included people wearing Kufiyahs, usually used to protest Israel and supporting the Palestinian Arab claims to all of Israel; SEIU shirts, signifying possibly members of the Service Employees International Union which represents government workers both federal, state and local; multicolored wigs, representing possibly referencing sexual freedom and independence; people identifying with If Not Now, an anti-Israel NGO; and as an If Not Now flyer advertising the event stated references which condemned the “police state” and touted the black supremacist hate group Black Lives Matter alongside Free Palestine, there is evidenced that these were neither conservatives nor members of the Tree of Life Synagogue. There was a speaker from If Not Now who complained that, “More cops in shuls will not make us safer.” Their antipathy for police is not exactly surprising as they regularly protest against the IDF, Israeli Border Police and anything having even the slightest relations with the Israeli government, also the conservative, religious and Zionist political parties and Israel in general. The article we found much of the information also reported that there was a sign reading, “Queer Catholic Protects Jews: End White Supremacy.” From the reports, we saw on the television, this group, like many around the nation, was loud and very proud of their demands and insistence that they represent The Resistance and as such also the vast majority of the American people.

 

We recently had the annual leftist yell fest down in Tel Aviv in Rabin Square commemorating the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. There was the usual reaction one would expect from a majority leftist crowd when a sitting Minister from the ruling Likud, a conservative and relatively Zionist Party, spoke they were clearly polite, well, except for their shouting down when Tzachi Hanegbi spoke. It appears to be something consistent with the leftists in both Israel and the United States, they equate with the loud volume they generate at rallies with being the majority as their opponents are so quiet so thus are therefore nonexistent. They have decided that if they prove to be excessively loud that these acts will lead to their being the majority at the election booths. After all, doesn’t everybody love to hear fanatical screaming. Well, we will be finding the result of the elections in the United States by the end of the week, probably sooner, and we will see if loudly screaming at President Trump wherever he appears and screaming at any Republican candidates, Congresscritters, staff members or other obviously conservative person or people who has the audacity to appear in public and eat in a public restaurant forcing them to always eat at home or at safe friends homes with like minded people results in that Blue Wave we have seen reported in some places. We are willing to bet that screaming likely does not result in their hoped for Blue Wave but then we also doubt there will be a Red Wave, just a Red Tide which will have one whose actions will need be monitored, Mitt Romney. Why Mitt Romney, you ask? Well, he was quite a “Never Trumper” until he announced his intention to run for the United States Senate seat in Utah, and then he became an ardent Trump supporter. We expect Mitt Romney may very well become the new leader of the Republican Resistance against President Trump and are hoping to be happily wrong on this one. But, the election results will be revealing as to whether President Trump can expect to be reelected in 2020 or should step aside and leave with grace. We expect President Trump will stand for reelection no matter what the midterm results.
