Trying to remember 30 years before I was born but finding it difficult.  Maybe this might help. :wacko:

The Holocaust happened over 70 years ago.

I have known Holocaust Survivors.

They have told me their stories. 

I can remember issues that have happened and events that have happened before I was born. Not just because I studied them at school and paid attention - - but also because some of these brave people who survived the most horrible onslaught of racism in Modern Europe were real human beings to me.

They took the time to explain to me exactly why racism is so horrible and ugly.

I don't care how many years ago the Holocaust was--

 it's something that human beings on this Earth should never forget.

 And since it was caused by racism --

that's something that human beings on this Earth should try to avoid or try to get over.

well, at least she is asking people not to defend her...that is more than any liberal celeb would do in the exact same predicament.

:P:D

How many liberal celebrities do you know that tweet racist remarks?

she's gotta right to hit back considering all the wholesale defamations that are being thrown at her.

she even admitted her mistake before she was cancelled.

I hope she will go on fox & friends and give us some insight into the inner liberal workings at ABC.

:P

Insight?  Racism is a no go.  How hard is it for you to figure this one out without blaming liberals?

Did the federal government really lose track of almost 1,500 immigrant children? https://cbsn.ws/2shy2om

10's of thousands of missing and exploited children, this group gets media attention. 

Funny, many went "missing" under Obama and not a peep from the media. What's the numbers again...15%!

Millions also died under Stalin and Mao. Try not to forget them.

 

Was joking about Prevagen, trying to make a point should the public remember what Trumps father did before he was born.

Was this an issue BEFORE he became president?  Maybe those on the board should look into their fathers history.  Love to find out about those tidbits. Whats good for the goose....

Hey ham, explain Dialectical Materialism and Modes of Production for us. You seem so knowledgeable about Marx and quick to talk about communism all the time so it should be real easy for you. :lol:

You shouldn't whine about Communism if you have no idea what you're even talking about.

The Holocaust was an attempt to obliterate an entire "race" of people just because of their "race."  If you wish to consider Judaism a race in this context.

Stalin and Mao were trying to eliminate anyone who may be a "political" opponent.

The issue was that trump's father was a Klan supporter and a racist.  trump grew up in that kind of a household.

If you want to know about my father since it's close to Memorial Day I will tell you this--

He was an Army Master Sergeant who participated in the Normandy Invasion, The Liberation of Paris and the Battle of the Bulge.

After that he volunteered for Okinawa. 

But my father isn't really the issue here because he wasn't a racist. His experiences in World War II taught him something.

 

After the war Fred Trump was given Federal money to build apartment housing for veterans. He declined to rent to African American veterans. We know all this because Woody Guthrie was living there and witnessed this and wrote a song about it.

Plus it is well known that the Nixon Administration also sued Fred Trump for discriminating against black people in his housing developments.

On top of that, no one denies the Cultural Revolution was evil and it certainly has nothing to do with any of Marx or Engels's writings. It was just a pathetic attempt at deflection from criticism of Trump's father while also whining about an ideology he clearly doesn't understand.

Conservative logic: Ambien makes you racist (Roseanne), pornography makes you shoot up schools (Diane Black), dirt on the ocean floor causes rising sea levels (Mo Brooks) and women's liberation causes human trafficking (Josh Hawley).

Coming from Southern families going back to before the American Revolution, I probably have a different history than most on this board.  So....

Growing up in the 50's and 60's, racism was part of the environment.  However, none of my relatives were members of the Klan or any similar organizations.  My father was very conservative and probably believed in white supremacy.  However, he never taught me that nor did he do anything to advance white supremacy.  Have to assume a lot here as he never commented on supporting politicians or others based on their racial attitudes.  He patronized black owned businesses upon occasion, although there really weren't that many.  He treated blacks the same as he did whites.  Same for my mother, uncles and aunts.

The Failing and Corrupt @nytimes estimated the crowd last night at “1000 people,” when in fact it was many times that number - and the arena was rockin’. This is the way they demean and disparage. They are very dishonest people who don’t “get” me, and never did!

Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?

Keith Boykin Retweeted Donald J. Trump

1. Wait, I thought you were too busy focused on North Korea to tweet about Roseanne.

2. You still haven’t condemned Roseanne’s racist tweet.

3. And speaking of apologies, you still haven’t apologized for lying about President Obama’s birth certificate for 5 1/2 years.

Glad to hear this, my father was not racist either.  Had black friends far back as I can remember, they were welcomed to my house.  This was the early 1960's

One girl had a crush on me but at 8...those cooties. (the normal kid stuff)
