Response to Behind the Aegis (Reply #30)

Thu Apr 14, 2016, 12:23 AM

58. Do you think the guy is that smart, that he made all the connections?

It reads to me like the guy was playing the standard "Sanders=Trump and their supporters are identical" smear of "the extremes", the smear of "their supporters" which is the same meme as "Berniebros" and it has worked, at least so far. It's pretty easy to connect Trump with Nazi standards so the carry-over is more obvious the dimmer a person is, and this guy went there by force of habit. Then deleted.

So far there's been nothing of that nature played against Sanders that's anywhere close to the Rev. Wright, the "birther/muslim/Kenya" stuff and so on played against Obama. That was wicked and continues to be wicked. I have no doubt that Sanders' Jewish identity will begin to be played with a lot more professionalism than this clumsy oaf played this line. I'm assuming here that Sanders continues his wins, to show his political strength.

Perhaps this will be a time for education. After all, Hillary Clinton has expressed her closeness to Israel and Netanyahu both, and Netanyahu represents a right-wing incarnation of the country, so it's hard for me to see how an anti-Semitic card could be effectively played by her. I expect the Republicans will play it, though. You betcha if they run with Trump going for his ultimate "win" (that's Trump's only concept, repeated over and over, he's in it for the joy and self-aggrandizement of being a winner).
