    But since you brought up the issue of GOP voters, it’s hard to ignore the statement in the article that 46% of republicans polled were in favour of Little, who is completely open about his anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying, and yes, Nazi beliefs. 46%. So yes, maybe we can’t say that the majority of republican voters support Nazi policies, but 46% is a pretty sizeable minority. 
    I’m totally jumping in here and no I didn’t read the article at all, but that 46% number cannot possibly folks who knew the guy had those sentiments right? I find it hard to believe that if you polled 100 Republicans about their views on anti Semitic, racist etc views that 46 of them would have no problem with it.  No way.  
    It is a poll. It could even be more in reality.

    That figure is a gauge to tell us roughly where things are at.
    Oh like a poll that roughly said Hillary was a 90%+ favorite to win the election? Ok, that makes sense then, it has no truth to it at all.


    Someone still doesn't know the difference between polls and electoral college forecasts??? Really? Almost two year after the fact? Jesus H.........national polls had her up 2-3%. She won the popular vote by like 2.5%. They were, and are, largely accurate. State specific polling in the few states that flipped late to Trump (largely due to the Comey bombshell) was what was wrong.

    Trump supporters.....ugh.

    There was also the possibility of tampering. If this happened, I’m sure it’s being kept classified.

    In fairness... McDonald's orange hue is very similar to the sun's at times.

    He might of thought that was his cousin or something? I dunno. Just trying to see why it's like to be a Trump apologist.

    Why? That’s pretty narrow minded and a terrible way to pick (or condemn) a SCOTUS nominee.

    Besides being a conservative, what's wrong with the nominee? He's not an extreme view on the court. My issue is with the process and how Garland was blocked. Changing the rules was wrong and has jaded the court moving forward.

    Historically, I don't like judges anyway because they have an arrogant mindset. They love playing god. It was a goofy statement from what appears to be a goofy guy so no surprise he made it because he's probably awestruck by a position with similar power.

    Spot on. 

    This is is so true. Obama should have had his nominee for sure and trump should only be now appointing his first. And this guy is certainly qualified. Not sure I’m going to like how he rules all the time, but he’s no Scott Pruitt

    This sums up how I feel about it. No matter what happens, I just cannot wrap my head around how the republicans stole a supreme court seat. That didn't generate the outrage it should have.

    And, like I said yesterday, I also have a problem with a president being allowed to pick one while under an fbi investigation.

    He's not Merrick Garland AND if those 2 assholes and all the senate R's line up and are for him, then I'm against him.

    Rage is a perfectly acceptable as motivation.

    trump bashes on our ally which pissed off John Kelly, or at least that’s  what we thought. Well the white house let us know the real story. Keep it classy, trump:

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said John Kelly "was displeased because he was expecting a full breakfast and there were only pastries and cheese."

    Sorry but the percentages just don’t match up with reality of where real anti-semitism comes from these days. The lesson from Auschwitz is that it comes from everywhere...one should always be on guard...it will never go away. In practicality however today’s Jews know that it is far more likely to come from the left then the right. Sure Nazi’s exist on the right but jews have far less to fear from them coming to power compared to a toxic brew of leftist socialist in bed with the Islamists. Around the world today Jews, LGBTQ, christians etc. are under attack from Islamists who get far more support from the political left then the right. It is Islamists in europe and elswhere (with leftist support) that are the worst perpetrators and Jews know that this will come to America too in time. It is the GOP in America who are looking out for this while the Democratic party is moving slowly in the opposite direction. Lastly with specific reference to the Holocaust jews know that it is Iran who is openly declaring to start the next one. They were absolutely against the Iran deal as they believe it bought this regime time and used the money for nefarious purposes. While American jews do mot support Trump they support him on leaving the Iran deal. It today’s GOP that understands Never Again while the democrats want to help sustain the iranian Mullahs who openly call for destruction of the jewish people. So throw your percentages around all you want but the real/effective/dangerous anti-semitism is in bed with the Democratic party right now and not with these one off lunatics who manage to get themselves nominated in heavily democratic districts.
    So you’re take away from visiting Auschwitz is to become more bigoted toward Muslims and ramp up your fear related beliefs surrounding liberals? 
    Uhh...no. I didn’t even use the word “muslim”. Nor did I use the word “liberal”.

    Blame Obama. He gutted his own party leaving a republican Senate. A republican senate that will become even more republican in November.

    Wrong. The “terms” define the “meaning”. You needed to paint me as someone that is targeting muslims and liberals. A tactic like this is very common on here. It’s very common in the media. It’s very common on the left. This is just another textbook example and I thank you for that. Your “retort” requied to change my “terms” in order to distort my “meaning”. It is you that has no response to a very rational argument which is that while hate for jews will always exist on all sides the next Holocaust is far more likely to come from an Islamist enabled left vs a Nazi enabled right.

    So, what’s your definition of leftist? When I look it up, it’s defintions include “liberal”

    If you want your words to matter, maybe you should define them.

    The balance of power in the senate doesn’t require a special source. We know what the numbers are and we know why they exist. The democrats gamble there supermajority on Obamacare etc. and blew it...big time. The country didn’t want it and the dems have been losing up and down the ballot ever since. Sure they didn’t mind re-electing Obama but they wanted to check him hard ever since. Blame Obama, blame Pelosi, and blame Harry Reid. Numbers determine votes. They are responsible for the numbers.

It is the GOP in America who are looking out for this while the Democratic party is moving slowly in the opposite direction. Lastly with specific reference to the Holocaust jews know that it is Iran who is openly declaring to start the next one. They were absolutely against the Iran deal as they believe it bought this regime time and used the money for nefarious purposes. While American jews do mot support Trump they support him on leaving the Iran deal. It today’s GOP that understands Never Again while the democrats want to help sustain the iranian Mullahs who openly call for destruction of the jewish people. So throw your percentages around all you want but the real/effective/dangerous anti-semitism is in bed with the Democratic party right now and not with these one off lunatics who manage to get themselves nominated in heavily democratic districts.
    So you’re take away from visiting Auschwitz is to become more bigoted toward Muslims and ramp up your fear related beliefs surrounding liberals? 
    Uhh...no. I didn’t even use the word “muslim”. Nor did I use the word “liberal”. 
    Oh. My bad. You used the terms “leftist” and “Islamists”. 

    It says a lot that your only retort is my word choice. The meaning remains 
    Wrong. The “terms” define the “meaning”. You needed to paint me as someone that is targeting muslims and liberals. A tactic like this is very common on here. It’s very common in the media. It’s very common on the left. This is just another textbook example and I thank you for that. Your “retort” requied to change my “terms” in order to distort my “meaning”. It is you that has no response to a very rational argument which is that while hate for jews will always exist on all sides the next Holocaust is far more likely to come from an Islamist enabled left vs a Nazi enabled right.

    So, what’s your definition of leftist? When I look it up, it’s defintions include “liberal” 

    https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.collinsdictionary.com/us/amp/english/leftist

    If you want your words to matter, maybe you should define them. 
     
    It might include “liberal” but there are no classical liberals left in the democratic party. They are the party of Ocasio-Cortez and the Democratic Socialists.

    But don’t take my word for it. Take NY Democratic Congressman Dov Hikind’s word for it...

    But since you brought up the issue of GOP voters, it’s hard to ignore the statement in the article that 46% of republicans polled were in favour of Little, who is completely open about his anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying, and yes, Nazi beliefs. 46%. So yes, maybe we can’t say that the majority of republican voters support Nazi policies, but 46% is a pretty sizeable minority. 
    Sorry but the percentages just don’t match up with reality of where real anti-semitism comes from these days. The lesson from Auschwitz is that it comes from everywhere...one should always be on guard...it will never go away. In practicality however today’s Jews know that it is far more likely to come from the left then the right. Sure Nazi’s exist on the right but jews have far less to fear from them coming to power compared to a toxic brew of leftist socialist in bed with the Islamists.

    You’re free to clarify your “meaning” of “leftist” and “islamist” then and further your point. My response to your reaction to your visit is that rather than gaining enlightenment on the psychology behind what made the Nazi regime occur, you perpetuate the actual dynamic that was at play in the 30s woth fear based statements about people you have labelled leftists and Islamist.

    Well then, there’s still hope for the Dems. Can’t say the same for the repubes. They own Team Trump Treason and all he has wrought. And that includes comparisons to Nazis.

    Besides being a conservative, what's wrong with the nominee? He's not an extreme view on the court. My issue is with the process and how Garland was blocked. Changing the rules was wrong and has jaded the court moving forward. 
    Spot on. 

    This is is so true. Obama should have had his nominee for sure and trump should only be now appointing his first. And this guy is certainly qualified. Not sure I’m going to like how he rules all the time, but he’s no Scott Pruitt


    This sums up how I feel about it. No matter what happens, I just cannot wrap my head around how the republicans stole a supreme court seat. That didn't generate the outrage it should have.

    And, like I said yesterday, I also have a problem with a president being allowed to pick one while under an fbi investigation.

    Blame Obama. He gutted his own party leaving a republican Senate. A republican senate that will become even more republican in November.
