22. His daughter and son-in-law may be Jewish, but he has also surrounded himself with anti-Semites

 

the cognitive dissonance is not with his Democratic critics, but with the Trump family themselves.

13. Hand-washing.

Regardless of the historicity of the gospels themselves, they get some things fairly accurate.

There was a lot of tension in the 20s and 30s CE in the area. Riots and such had happened. The Romans tried to respect local customs and traditions in order to keep the peace in a restive province, and even that wasn't enough. When they got tired of being nice, there were Jewish wars that ultimately led to the "paganization" of Jerusalem and in the final war the mess at Masada.

Local rulers appointed by Rome had as one of their mandated tasks keeping the peace. The death of a minor rebel, or a perceived rebel, was a small matter to another riot in which Roman soldiers were killed and unrest boiled over.

If a sheriff is surrounded by armed men who want to lynch a prisoner, it's a commendable thing to pull together the deputies that results in a shoot-out in which people die, even the sheriff. But it's hard to fault a sheriff who, facing dead deputies and a recall from the governor for the dead bodies involved, is weak and gives in. Esp. when such an act would result in praise from the governor and most of the population.

As for the people who resent Trump's post, I'd point out John 10:22-24 (KJV, for the Anglican purists among the American evangelicals): "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of dedication, and it was winter. Jesus walked in the temple at Solomon's porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly."

Or, since we don't say "feast of dedication" in English, perhaps it should be updated to "And it was at Jerusalem Hanukkah, and it was winter." Of course, it's a nationalist holiday, one commemorating the independence of the natio, so the question was fraught with political implications and aspirations. Which is what Herod or any Rome-appointed prefect would have been concerned with whether in winter or in spring around the passover, because putting down nationalist aspirations was the name of his particular job.

I wasn't surprised at all to see the anonymous mask.

I'll bet they've got their own evil version of anonymous, to hack those who do good.

ignorance and fear, and those individuals only seemed to hear what they wanted in all the ranting, rambling campaign speech, it was bound to eat itself from within pretty fast.

support Israel and aren't prejudiced against Jews.

And then there's the assholes like the ones posted above who freaking scare the shit out of me.

23. His anti-Semites are just "more in your face" than others.

There are the covert ones too, but many on that side are just more blatant about it and don't mince words.

25. I'm right here, you deplorable motherfuckers! Try that Jew hating on me and see what the fuck

 

happens to you!

Seriously, I've beaten down a nazi since freshman year in college when someone drew a swastika on my dorm door, then woke me up and dared me to do something about it.

Two fists, a metal fire extinguisher and five minutes later, he was picking up his fucking teeth and the rest of the floor was coming up with a million lies to tell the cop. One of the other floor mates then (my friend) stepped on the nazi's right hand, then punched me on the side of the face.

When the cops arrive, everyone stuck to the story that he did the nazi shit, then attacked me. The bruise on my face showed it.

So, he got arrested.

26. Lovely people, the Trump voters.



So many points to discuss here.

For instance, wasn't it Jesus's plan to be killed? Who else was gonna do it, a Christian. (Hey, did you hear the one about how Jesus was a Christian? That's it. That's the punchline.)

And please, tell me exactly how one little Happy Hanukkah tweet is "subverting Christmas"?

Insecure, irrational morons.

Trump's son in law is acceptable to them as long as he is a useful tool.

But to Donald's supporters, he will still be a Jew.

28. I have often wondered how many fundamentalists...

...realize that Jesus wasn't a Christian?

And, shouldn't they be pleased that someone killed him? If no one had, then there could have been no resurrection and no Christian religion.

29. I suppose the low-info cretins don't know that Ivanka converted to Judaism to

marry her Jewish husband Jared Kushner, one of Trump's top campaign advisors, and, if Trump gets his way, on his White House team with top security clearance.
