Survivor people

It's funny, I was just going to comment on the phenomenon of bloggers that went into hiatus or semi-hiatus once Barry was elected, on the theory, I guess, that no more work was required as the US entered some kind of socialist/peacenik/environmentalist nirvana (while Barry let the banksters run wild, turned brown people into pink foam, and did fuck all to stop global warming, with Killary on line to be much, much worse), and have suddenly come back to life to battle the existential crisis of Trump.  It really puts the exclamation point on this horrible, psychotic asshole's disdain for the American 'left'.

This is wonderful:  "Hitler’s Babies":
". . . while I wish I could say that mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in America is solely a product of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency, the truth is much scarier. The blatantly racist and anti-Semitic alt-right movement that emerged during Trump’s campaign in fact mirrored the insinuating anti-Semitism that had already captured a prominent sector of the progressive left during the Obama years. This trend was apparently clear enough to the operatives who ran Hillary Clinton’s campaign that they decided that allowing the candidate to be seen in public talking to Jews on issues that concern them during either the primary or the general election campaign was a clear negative, to be avoided at all costs—a decision that likely lost her the state of Florida, and perhaps even the presidency.

The threat to our community is a new one, because it is coming from both extremes of the political spectrum and infiltrating mainstream discourse among both Republicans and Democrats. Together, anti-Semites of the right and the left are spreading a political virus once contained at the fringes of our society into a broad beat pulsing beneath the entire American political conversation. To understand why this is so dangerous, it is necessary for partisans on both sides to admit that it’s not just the other side that has a problem; we all do.

To do so, we must first be clear about what anti-Semitism is—and is not. Anti-Semitism is not a social prejudice against Jews; it’s a conspiracy theory. In fact, it’s the oldest and most powerful conspiracy theory in the West. You can be an anti-Semite without being particularly prejudiced against Jews in your personal interactions with them, and you can hold prejudiced views about Jews without being an anti-Semite. The person who finds Jews to be loud and vulgar and doesn’t want them in his country club is a bigot; if you asked him whether the reason he doesn’t like Jews is because they nefariously control the government and all the banks and are bent on world domination, he’d probably look at you as if you were insane.

Conversely, there are people—including some Jews!—who happily watch Seinfeld and eat bagels and lox, but who also believe that a secret conspiracy of Likudniks dragged America into war in Iraq, or are responsible for the latest financial crisis, or border crisis, which these Jews present in manipulative ways in the media, which is secretly controlled by George Soros or Sheldon Adelson. To any normal person, whatever their prejudices, the core of anti-Semitic thinking is sheer insanity. To anti-Semites, it is revelatory—whatever their political affiliations."
'Morons' have these 'insane' ideas that there might be a connection between the fact, say, that 'one-issue guys' essentially funded Killary's Presidential election campaign (not to mention Barry's billion dollar retirement fund), and the fact that American foreign policy is both consistently and clearly against American national interests (not to mention simple humanitarianism) and consistently and clearly advancing Yinon principles to build a Zionist Empire.

"Tulsi Gabbard for Secretary of State! An example of the need for political realignment".

"Trump and the Media".

"A Harvard Professor Received An Anti-Semitic Note That Said “Drain The Swamp”".

"Erdan at JPost Conference: Terror and BDS share the same ideological roots".  It's true, they're both Zionist!

"Obama directs Pentagon to target al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, one of the most formidable forces fighting Assad".  Note the mass internal opposition to a slight decrease in American support for al Qaeda!

"Lebanon freezes plan for Ain al-Hilweh's 'racist wall'".

"Politico editor resigns after posting white nationalist's address, talking about baseball bat attacks".  The only shocking thing is that he had to resign.

"Everybody Hates Cornel West".  He's earned it by consistently, and uniquely, speaking truth to power.

"Michael T. Flynn and Islam" by Thierry Meyssan.  If he is against the creation of Sunnistan that is immensely positive, but I'm concerned about his connections to Ziofascist - and that's not name calling, it is a technical term - Ledeen.

"It Is up to Us" by Paul Craig Roberts (I think there is a lot of truth to this):
"The Oligarchs controlled the voting machines. They failed to steal the election, because the people outsmarted them and told the pollsters that they were voting for Hillary. This led to the presstitutes’ propaganda that Hillary was the certain winner, and the Oligarchs believed their own propaganda and didn’t believe it necessary to make certain of their victory." 

Tweet (Ali Abunimah):
"Zionist feminism: the “right” of women to fully participate in ethnic cleansing, occupation and war crimes"

Tweet (Glenn Greenwald) (the new trend is to be aghast at things Trump says that are identical to, or not as bad as, what Barry has been doing for years):
"This is 100% true: legitimately important. It's why Obama legacy is marred by Emanuel/Gibbs/Obama instructing DOJ not to prosecute torture."

"A Closer Look at Facebook's Fake-News Fixes"!

"Elijah Magnier On Fake News And Fake Analysts".

"Syria and the Statistics of War":  "the scientific entertainer Steven Pinker" and "But it is not just the bullshitting of Steven Pinker".

"Demonizing Russian Media".

This is a statement by somebody always touted - well, in Canada -  as a future winner of a literature Nobel Prize (grasping all those shekels must be hurting her writing hand):
"We’re sorry we hurt any survivor people out there by seeming lacking in empathy for your experiences. We do not intend to discourage anyone from speaking up in future, and hope the university will put in place a workable support system."
"Faith In Humanity Restored! After These Students Were Defrauded Out Of Their Life Savings, Donald Trump Helped By Giving Them $25 Million"
