Good riddens. That guy is off his rocker.
I'm not quite sure how staff reporting the performance of the equipment that City Council directed them to buy is biased.
This all got started when Ken said that Keith Ellison wants to bring sharia law to America.
Except I'm quite sure he said no such thing.
As proof, Jeff cited articles that imply that because he has attended conferences with more radical speakers, he must believe as they do.
Ken's claim was factually baseless, but apparently that doesn't matter anymore.
I'm pointing out that the right loves to play the association game with figures on the left: Obama and Ayers, Obama and Van Jones.
But they don't seem to apply the same set of rules to people of their persuasion.
I have better things to do. Besides, this is Trump; there's no need to make stuff up.
However, the claim I made was based off an email. I can't find any support for it, though.
But my original point is still very much valid.
Is Trump a neonazi because he brought on a strategic director who ran a website that published all kinds of racist, sexist, anti-Muslim crap?
Here's a classic bit of Trump prevaricating about a guy he has known for 25 years. This was August, 2016:
CNN’s Jake Tapper: “I want to ask you about the Anti-Defamation League, which this week called on you to publicly condemn unequivocally the racism of former KKK grand wizard David Duke, who recently said that voting against you at this point would be ‘treason to your heritage.’ Will you unequivocally condemn David Duke and say that you don’t want his vote or that of other white supremacists in this election?”
Trump: “Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke. Okay? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don’t know. I don’t know, did he endorse me or what’s going on, because, you know, I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists. And so you’re asking me a question that I’m supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about.”
Tapper: “But I guess the question from the Anti-Defamation League is, even if you don’t know about their endorsement, there are these groups and individuals endorsing you. Would you just say unequivocally you condemn them and you don’t want their support?”
Trump: “Well, I have to look at the group. I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about. You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I would have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them. And, certainly, I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong.”
Tapper: “The Ku Klux Klan?”
Trump: “But you may have groups in there that are totally fine, and it would be very unfair. So, give me a list of the groups, and I will let you know.”
With that kind of evasive response, he must be an excellent dancer.
And the guy picked Steve Bannon to be an integral part of his White House team. A guy whose website published all kinds of nonsense.
Does that mean that Trump agrees with everything on this website?
He said Duke was a great guy years ago, before he denounced him under pressure this past year. You know, typical Trump.
"his misleading criticism of Israel as a human rights violator..."
The articles I read that linked him to the Muslim Brotherhood also said stuff like this,
which completely negates their credibility imo.
International human rights law applies to every nation -- not just the ones we don't like.
These are the same people who claimed that the Muslim Brotherhood was linked to Hillary Clinton through Weiner's wife, or something.
Plenty of right-wing Christian radicals speak at CPAC along with more mainstream figures. Does this taint everyone who attends the conference?
So I guess it depends.
If you believe Trump is a neo-nazi because he said in the past that David Duke was a great guy, then I suppose you can claim Keith Ellison wants to bring Sharia Law to America.
How far do you want to play the association game?
Lol; I'd love to know where you heard that, but I'm sure you didn't actually.
And I'm very interested to know how Saudi Arabia fits into this neat little equation of yours.
"On the bright side, the front runner for DNC chair is an anit-semitic, homophobic, anti-American segregationist with documented ties to jihadi scum. So they've got that going for them."
Interested to know which swamp you pulled that out of.
If you mean he doesn't kowtow to Israel like the rest of the American establishment, I consider that a very good thing.
