The first one is from Schumer. Second one is from Cohen. Both are on your rage list. Both made comments on the 12th. And I'm sure I could find even more quotes, from more representatives on your rage list, if I actually cared to dispell the ever-changing targets of this idiotic thread.

 

 


No Kidding......................................Trump also - Spoke Out - in a smiliar Clever but Oblique Manner ................................

 

The Ever-Changing Targets have never changed from my perspective.................we are talking about - Three Equal Branches of our Federal Government....................when a National Tragedy takes place.............................The US Congress - The Elected Representatives of the People in the US Congress have Equal Power to the President...................what have they done........................what Bi-partisan Efforts have the Jewish Members of the Congress initiated to put Pressure on the President to either admit he supports these Racist Hate Groups..................or denounce them in no uncertain terms...................

 

NADA

 

Jewish members of Congress could simply refuse to go to the Whitehouse - refuse to be photographed with Trump - they are all on a two-month Summer Vacation and they could organize and hold Vigils in their Districts...............................they could demand that Steve Bannon be exiled from the Whitehouse

 

Just a little while ago the Rabbi of Ivanka Trumps Temple - the Rabbi who celebrated her conversion to Judaism - spoke out against the lack of Moral Courage of the President....................more than 24 hours after Tumps last major statement on the issue........................well at least it's a start and it was reported in the Major News Networks the minute it happened - today Heather Heyers family & friends held a Memorial - how many Jewish Members of Congress attended..............................MIA in Action just like the President

 

The Citizens of the USA can easily identify when their Leaders are Fully Committed For or Against a National Tragedy and the Symbolism it represents - they do not need to do Google Searches - they do not need to do research on whom is outraged..................the lack of commitment is palpable

 

Here is a list of the most notable people who attended Heather Heyers Memorial Today

 

Virginia officials including Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Sen. Tim Kaine attended the memorial service at Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, where white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered on Saturday for a rally that turned violent.

 

Google Seraches should not be necessary when something of this Magnitude takes place in this Country - especially under these circimstances

 

Here is the List of Republicans who have Criticised of Condemned Trumps Response - Noticeably Absent a Significant Group of  Jewish Congressional Members

 

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a strong critic of Trump, took a hard stance on Wednesday against Trump's remarks at the news conference.
"Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like Ms. Heyer. I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency," Graham said in a statement.
He continued: "Many Republicans do not agree with and will fight back against the idea that the Party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world."
Sen. John McCain, whom Trump called out at the news conference for not voting for the GOP health care bill, tweeted, "There's no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so"
Sen. Marco Rubio, who ran against Trump in the GOP primary, tweeted in a thread, "Mr. President,you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame. They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain"
Sen. Jeff Flake, a strong critic of Trump, tweeted, "We can't accept excuses for white supremacy & acts of domestic terrorism. We must condemn. Period."
Sen. Cory Gardner also used Trump's name to say he was wrong at a town hall in Colorado.
"The President was wrong," Gardner said when asked about Trump's comments blaming the left, according to Fox31 Denver, a CNN affiliate.
Sen. Jerry Moran also called out Trump by name, writing in a tweet: "White supremacy, bigotry & racism have absolutely no place in our society & no one - especially POTUS - should ever tolerate it"
Ohio Gov. John Kasich didn't tweet but instead told NBC's "Today Show" on Wednesday that Trump's remarks were "pathetic."
"This is terrible. The President of the United States needs to condemn these kinds of hate groups," said Kasich, who ran against Trump in the Republican presidential primary. "The President has to totally condemn this. It's not about winning an argument."
Rep. Ed Royce tweeted, "The President needs to clearly and categorically reject white supremacists. No excuses. No ambiguity."
And Rep. Leonard Lance tweeted, "Mr. President, there is only one side: AGAINST white supremacists, neo-Nazis, anti-Semites & the KKK. They have no place in America or GOP."
@former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who also ran against Trump in the GOP primary, tweeted in a thread denouncing racism: "I urge @POTUS to unite the country, not parse the assignment of blame for the events in Charlottesville."
And Rep. Will Hurd told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room" that Trump should "apologize ... Racism, bigotry, anti-Semitism of any form is unacceptable."

Maybe some of the Elite Snobs on this Forum should read the Words from a Normal American Human Being - Not a Braniac - Not a Intellectual Braggart or Bully - just thoughts from a Normal Everyday American Mother after suffering the Horror of all Horrors No Parent Should Ever Be Forced to Endure attempting to describe WHY every decent American should be speaking out about Charlottesville and WHY you should not have to do a Google search to see if ANY Jewish Leaders our saying anything..................

 

"They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well guess what? You just magnified her."

Heather Heyer's mother is speaking about her daughter, who was killed in the Charlottesville counterprotests. And she had a message for white nationalists:

"They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well guess what? You just magnified her," Susan Bro said.

 

Bro urged everyone to continue Heyer's legacy by finding "a way to make a difference."

"I'd rather have my child, but by golly, if I've got to give her up, we're going to make it count," she said.

All kinds of Jewish organization leaders speaking out about it. And that article is 3 days old.

 

And now right wing hero Alex Jones is saying the Jews were actually the ones posing as KKK members in Charlottesville on Saturday.

 

Instead of expecting the targets of right wing hatred to speak out, how about the right wingers, who always try to convince us they harbor no hatred for anyone, denounce the violence from within their own ranks.

 

 


Oh that's swell..........................................if you have a Computer and Enough Idle Time - you can search and search and find some obscure example of what some Obscure Unknown Representative of some small insignificant Group said

 

On the other hand if Netanyahu doesn;t like a American Presidents Foreign Policy he Flys to the USA and addresses the US Congress

 

I did one of those Google Searchers on Chuck Schumer the Head Democratic Dinosaur in the US Senate - guess what - his last meaningful public comment on anything - was June 12 2017 - where he was mocking Trumps Cabinet Picks...........................

 

Here are a Few of the Major Jewish Organizations - How Many Have Been Heard From - Do a Google Search - NADA

Are they all that afraid? Because if they are, they are complicit on any of Trump's actions. 


@rker321,

 

I can't believe what you said in the post above.

 

Using your same rationale, I suppose you believe the JEWS were "complicit" in the HOLOCAUST.

 

To say JEWS are COWERING in fright is abominable statement.

 

To then say that they are as culpable as Trump because the JEWISH outcry is not to the level you think it should be is a statement that smacks of Anti-Semitism.

 

I just can't believe your words, I am sorry you feel that way.


Are you trying to twist my words.?  Yes, I need to see the Jewish Americans stand up and say that they do not condone the actions of the KKK or the White supremacist, there are not enough words that should not be uttered regarding the responsibility that the Jewis Communisty have in standing up and denouncing Trump.
I you actually have misinterpreted my words, sorry, but you are incorrect. I want the people that represent those minorities that these Nationalists groups attack to stand up and fight. to stand up and reject the words of this President.

The Anne Frank Center asked twitter to suspend Trump's account because he is an accomplice to domestic terrorism.

 

Pretty strong stuff actually.

 

The real problem in my opinion goes beyond and precedes Trump. We have tolerated a romantic version of  slavery and the Confederacy  all of our lives. I understand what the reasons for that may be, but we have seen blow back from that since the end of the Civil War. What happened in Charlottesville is just more blow back of tolerating the notion that anything about slavery or the Confederacy was good. 

 

 


Again - this is mostly a bunch of BS - simply another reason to find to attempt to cause Problems

 

Tearing Down Memorials to the Confederacy is going to accomplish What Exactly - Sweep a disastrous period in US History under the Rug?

 

Banning the Confederate Flag is going to accomplish What Exactly - Erase the Bigotry Racism & Hate from the Hearts & Minds of those who carry it around today or prevent it from growing in a Future Generation - Thats Absurd

 

Where does it END

 

Are you coming to New England next and Erasing all Memorials erected to depicting the Torture & Mutilation of those American Society determined were unacceptable and whose lives needed purging because they were Witches

 

How about we go around the Country and erase all Evidence of how we used to Incarcerate the Mentally ill - Torture & Mutilate Them........................

 

This is a kind of Revisionists History - meant to make a current generation feel like they are doing something that promotes a nice Warm & Fuzzy feeling

 

Do something about Inequality - Discrimination - Racism & Bigotry Today - Forget the Attempts at Erasing what American Culture and Society is capable of Alone

 

I've heard a dozen times in the last few days that Germany Does Not Allow - any Slogans or Images of Hitler or the Nazis in Public - It's a Crime and it's Strictly Enforced......................

 

Are there No Nazi Sympathisers or Groups in Germany - Yes there are and some are very Prominent in the Political Mainstream

 

1. National Democratic Party of Germany

 

2. Autonome Nationalisten

 

3. Artgemeinschaft

 

4. Wiking-Jugend

 

5. Deutsche Heidnische Front

 

6. German Alternative

 

7. Kärntner Heimatdienst 

 

8. Nationalist Front

 

9. Action Front of National Socialists/National Activists

 

10. Socialist Reich Party of Germany
