There was a time in America when a Jerry and a Kraut like Donald Drumpf would be chased out of town



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internment_of_German_Americans#World_War_II

...And people would be questing his loyalties to America especially since he first got married to a Czech woman, then a Slovenian woman and says that he wants to negotiate with Putin (a former KGB agent).

So, I wonder if Donald Drumpf really wants to return to those "good ol' days".

1. National slurs are not ok. I get your point, but the way you make it makes us no better than him.

2. I have to disagree in this case. The words are used here not directly, but as verbal actions

to make a point, to try to cut through Trump's delusion, and the political actions he is promoting. I understand that most people won't get the distinction, so that the action here is probably counter productive, but I thought it was pretty artful, after I got over the shock. The shock itself is part of why it works.

5. Jury let it stand 4-3

Really surprising, given the hyperventilation that so often occurs here over much less obvious things.
