@Brandon9000,
The Star of David has 6 points.

@glitterbag,
His point is that lots of stars have six points. You can find a lot of sheriff badges with six points. It is a default shape in Powerpoint. The Star of David is a six pointed star, every six pointed star is not a Star of David.

For me the real issue is he just retweeted something from a white supremacist web site without the least thought. He's done this before with Black on White crime statistics. There should be a place between your eyes and your fingers where you insert your brain and that seems to be missing with Trump.

Brandon actually has a point, (no pun intended), putting in a solid red six pointed star will not come across as anti-Semitic to most people. Trouble is, the people that Trump appeals to in large part do look for such symbols and make a big deal of them indeed. Remember this Proctor & Gamble logo on all that stuff you saw growing up?

Well,they had to take it off all their many products because rumors were going around that it was a Satanic symbol. P&G won a big lawsuit against four Amway distributors for pushing such a "Satanic" story via Email, but the story had been around for years before they decided to start pushing it.

Take a look at YouTube, wherever you see some "America's Gonna Collapse ANY MINUTE" videos you'll see a whole slew of these comments about how one symbol is linked Satanically to various political events and people, etc etc. And a certain percentage of Americans believe this stuff. A lot of them support Trump.

Twitter Trashes Trump Over Anti-Semitic Tweet: 'Remember When Hitler Made 6 Million Jews Sheriffs?'

Trump failed to distance himself from the white supremacist origins of a Tweet.
By Bethania Palma Markus / Raw Story
July 4, 2016


On Saturday, GOP candidate Donald Trump tweeted an image that has been widely condemned as anti-Semitic—an image of Hillary Clinton and a Star of David, with $100 bills in the background.

Trump’s team had mined the image from a racist and anti-Semitic message board, Mic reported. A watermark on the image lead to a Twitter account known for violent, racist memes. Trump deleted the tweet and has been trying to fend off criticism by saying it was not a Star of David in the image.

@ForecasterEnten

Remember when Hitler made six million Jewish sheriffs? Oh wait. He didn't? He killed them instead.

As Rev has pointed out, this image came from a racist website who most certainly did intend to use the Star of David.

The most generous interpretation is that Trump didn't realise, but even then he knowingly retweeted sources from a racist website.

It doesn't look good either way.

House Speaker Paul Ryan slams Trump over Star of David tweet
Source: Reuters

05 JUL 2016 AT 12:03 ET

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday slammed as “ridiculous” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s social media post depicting Democratic rival Hillary Clinton against a backdrop of cash and a Star of David, and said anti-semitic images have “no place in a presidential campaign.”

“Candidates know that,” Ryan, the highest-ranking elected Republican, said in an interview with radio station WTMJ in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. “I really believe he’s got to clean up the way his new media works,” he said.

Trump on Monday defended the post, saying he had not meant the six-pointed star to refer to the Star of David, which is a symbol of Judaism. Rather, he said, the star could have referred to a sheriff’s badge, which is shaped similarly except for small circles at the ends of each of its six points, or a “plain star.”

Donald Trump’s Social Media Ties to White Supremacists (Fortune Magazine)

http://fortune.com/donald-trump-white-supremacist-genocide/

By Ben Kharakh and Dan Primack

In late January, Donald Trump did something that would have sunk almost any other presidential campaign: He retweeted an anonymous Nazi sympathizer and white supremacist who goes by the not-so-subtle handle @WhiteGenocideTM. Trump neither explained nor apologized for the retweet and then, three weeks later, he did it again. This subsequent retweet was quickly deleted, but just two days later Trump retweeted a different user named @EustaceFash, whose Twitter header image at the time also included the term “white genocide.”

None of this went unnoticed among ardent racists, many of whom believe there is a coordinated effort to eventually eliminate the “white race.”

. . .

Trump is “giving us the old wink-wink,” wrote Andrew Anglin, editor of a white supremacist website called The Daily Stormer, after Trump retweeted two other “white genocide” theorists within a single minute. “Whereas the odd White genocide tweet could be a random occurrence, it isn’t statistically possible that two of them back to back could be a random occurrence. It could only be deliberate…Today in America the air is cold and it tastes like victory.”

Since the start of his campaign, Donald Trump has retweeted at least 75 users who follow at least three of the top 50 #WhiteGenocide influencers. Moreover, a majority of these retweeted accounts are themselves followed by more than 100 #WhiteGenocide influencers.

But the relationship isn’t limited to retweets. For example, Trump national campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson (who is black), follows the most influential #WhiteGenocide account, @Genophilia, which is best known for helping to launch a Star Wars boycott after it became known that the new film’s lead character was black. (Below are some recent #WhiteGenocide tweets from @Genophilia.)

Typical Brandon900 attempt to garner the last word as he tries to slam the door on his way out.

We don't need to blame CheetoJebus for anything he didn't do - the floor's littered with all the tRumpisms he did do.

@bobsal u1553115,
That Trump the racial bigot has ties to white supremacists is not surprising. I'm sure most minorities and women see Trump for who he is, and will not give him their vote. Without the minority and women vote, he has no chance of winning anything.

"I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,'' Trump booms from a speakerphone.

"He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

http://www.snopes.com/2016/06/23/donald-trump-rape-lawsuit/

this ''terrific guy'' is Jeffrey Epstein, named in the current lawsuit, and one of the truly LOATHSOME creeps to come along in recent memory:

http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-the-radar/2015/07/judge-unseals-more-details-in-jeffrey-epstein-underage-sex-lawsuit-210065



I heard Lisa Bloom on Stephanie Miller this morning, discussing the rape case, and why it's not being reported ANYwhere in the M$M. why is that, I wonder?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-bloom/why-the-new-child-rape-ca_b_10619944.html

look who's covering it? no major outlets. the NY Daily News comes closest here:

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=trump+rape&tbm=nws

why do you think they refuse to even mention it? they came up with a pretty good answer on the radio this morning.

David Duke Expresses Gratitude, Support For Anti-Semitic Trump Tweet
Source: Mediaite

Ex-KKK Grand Wizard David Duke expressed his gratitude and support for Donald Trump‘s tweet that used a red Star of David to accuse Hillary Clinton of corruption.

In one of a series of tweets published over the weekend, Duke said it was “ok” that Trump had replaced the image with the Star of David with one of a red circle, saying that “we welcome the hidden hand exposing itself.”

He also thanked Trump for “slipping some ‘Red Pills’ to the American people!” (“Red pill,” a term borrowed from The Matrix, typically refers to the men’s rights movement, but can be more broadly applied to any instance of one becoming aware of the secret nature of the world.)

<...>

Duke has been one of Trump’s troublesome supporters, and the candidate invited controversy back in February when he did not immediately disavow the former KKK leader’s endorsement. (He eventually did.) Duke subsequently took credit for a boost in Trump’s poll numbers.
