I speak French; I don't speak German. And thanks to Hitler I never want to learn it.

As a small child my father wanted us to learn about the Holocaust as soon as possible. And we had to watch those Walter Cronkite documentaries called the 20th Century on World War II.

Seems like each one was just some awful frightening speech by Hitler. They were just horrible; it made me hate the language.

 

Well, to tell ya the truth here Princess, I, MYSELF, am even beginning to get a little turned off with the ENGLISH language lately, and especially so after every time I see and hear that arrested-developed Trump open HIS pie hole on the TV news this past year!

 

(...and in HIS case of course, it's NOT just because I never particularly cared for a New York City accent)

 

LOL

I guess that's understandable, though I would never shy away from

learning a language just because a bad man spoke it. That's like

not wanting to learn Russian because Stalin spoke it, but it's an

individual thing. Anyway, Hitler was an Austrian. :)

I know it's a minor matter, but the name of the book is Mein Kampf.

Van Jones on CNN: Trump "would flunk second grade history. He can't distinguish between George Washington, who was a flawed but great man, and Robert E. Lee, who took up arms against his country."


Let's go one step further with this.

He wanted to use Thomas Jefferson as a second example. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence.

Adolf Hitler wrote MEIN KAMPH.

Donald Trump doesn't know the difference between

The Declaration of Independence and

MEIN KAMPH.


What kind of crude piece of inhumanity is this man?

A Charlottesville Pastor has called Trump's Tuesday statement "repugnant" and said "he doesn't possess the gene of empathy".  The Pastor is giving Heather Heyer's (the lady who was killed by the Neo Nazi car driver) eulogy tomorrow.

Today is the day Donald Trump became president of the Confederacy.




That would make Donald Trump the second president of the Confederacy, right after Jefferson Davis.


Look away, look away, look away old Trumpland!

Donald Trump Has Been a Racist All His Life — And He Isn’t Going to Change After Charlottesville-

 

"........This is Racism 101 from a sitting U.S. president. And it is the stark and undeniable truth, and key context, that is missing from much of the coverage of the political fallout from Charlottesville. Journalists, opinion formers, members of Congress, and members of the public continue to treat Trump as they would any previous president — they expect their head of government to come out and condemn racism with passion, vigor, speed, and sincerity.

 

But what do you do if the president is himself a long-standing purveyor of racism and xenophobia? What then?...

 

It is pure fantasy for politicians and pundits to suppose that Trump will ever think or behave as anything other than the bigot he has always been — and, in more recent years, as an apologist for other bigots, too.

 

We would do well to heed the words of those who have spent decades studying this bizarre president. “Donald is a 70-year-old man,” Trump biographer David Cay Johnston reminded me in the run-up to his inauguration in January. “I’m 67. I’m not going to change and neither is Donald.”

If @realDonaldTrump is sincere about rejecting alt-right white supremacists sympathizers, he should start at the White House. #FireBannon

Y'know, after reading that I went back and re-read my post FIVE TIMES!

 

And NOWHERE in it did I notice that I EVER suggested IGNORING it.  I only suggested it would have been best if the "counter protesters" AVOIDED any physical confrontations that could get(and did) highly violent.  You can BET that there'd be plenty of nitwits blaming all the injuries and that poor woman's death on THEM instead of the bigoted dung brains that DID start the violence.  I've already heard some doing so.

I believe Bogie was saying that the government should NOT ignore it.  

 

As for the counter-protesters;  I already posted that my advise to them would be to just ignore these white hate groups.  I.e.   let them have their rally and do NOT attend.   In most cases those that protest are doing so because they have little to no political power.   They are losing on the political front and all they have in their bag of tricks is to protest.   These protest will not change the political landscape.   E.g. the protest by illegal immigrants don't influence the actions of the Feds. 

 

This is the case with these white hate groups;  The monuments are coming down and protests are NOT going to change the views of the government authorities that voted to remove them (or the voters that elected these authorities).    To me a counter protest is only useful when the legal decisions are still 'up in the air'.

 

My friends and I did the same with regards to SSM;  when this was still illegal,  I protested and joined counter protests,  but once the SC ruled that SSM was legal in every state,   there wasn't any need to counter protest.   .    Some wacko religious groups still protested but we decided to just ignore these fools.   We won, they lost.

I posted a similar question on The Triumph of Trump thread and got royally chewed about by a couple of people so far.

 

I commend Lindsay Graham for his statement on this situation, but Lindsay says a lot that never really gets anywhere.  He likes to be on TV almost as much as Trump did before the election.

Nazis take to your streets armed with shields and batons and the right thing to do is to ignore that?  No way.

Tell me, how would Trump and American have reacted if radical Muslim groups decided to exercise their right of free speech and descended upon some nice town and called for the overthrow of the white government?

It is perhaps time that the U.S. government put these white supremacist groups on the terror list and see to it that they are disbanded.  Don't count on Jeff Sessions to do that though.
