If Trump came a day later, the outcry would be that he didn’t care and just showed up for photo ops. He shows up when he did, the outcry is that he doesn’t care and just showed up for photo ops.

Its all HIS fault. Nothing to do with the beating of the hate drums by the Democrat (which founded the KKK and supported anti-black legislation) leadership and the obsessed liberal wing-anut leftist press.

He is such an anti-Semite that his daughter converted to Judaism, his son-in-law is a Jew, his grandchildren are Jewish, and all are an intrinsic part of his family. Quick, name any other president with that level of diversity in the family. No US president has ever been as pro-Israel as Trump.

If he cured cancer and brought universal peace to the world he would still be hated. Is there anything he can do that the Dems and their ilk (yes, ilk) don’t complain about? But Obama was a saint with his good buds that are known anti-Semites such as Al Sharpton, “Hymie Town” Jesse Jackson, the leaders of Nation of Islam, Rev. Wright, and so on.

BTW, all the “celebrities” who promise to move to Canada because of Trump: please, hide/shelter in place. Stay behind your gated communities with your armed guards (which you can’t have in Canada). We have enough unwanted “migrants” falsely claiming to be refugees.

The left always trots out the ‘Hitler thing’ when they have nothing else to ad of any value. The truth about Nazis is that Nazism is Socialism. The name of the party is pretty much a give-away, but liberals / socialists conveniently avoid that subject. The great lie of the left needs to be confronted, argued and defeated. It must be removed from the teachings of our socialist education system. Anyone who compares Trump to Hitler is woefully ignorant of history and willing to accept any lie as long as it attacks President Trump.

Hitler did not advocate building a wall between East Prussia and Poland….Trump has no plans to invade and annex Mexico.

Hitler formed an aliance with Palestinian nationalists ….Trump cut off their funding.

Hitler aspired to a unified Europe under one unelected government….the unelected EU parliament despises Trump for his support of nations who want the EU parliament to butt out of their immigration policies.

Hitler killed those who were his rivals within the NAZI party…..Trump only fires them…It’s Debbie Wasserman-Schultz who really scares those who would undermine her politically.

Lorrie Goldstein is one of those level headed common sense people of which there seems to be an ever decreasing number.

Love how the left calls many people Hitler but never say that about Imams and Muslims who openly call for the destruction of Jews.

Democrats play dirty especially when they are desperate. Latest polls are showing that the Republicans will win the Mid Terms with a bigger majority than ever.

In any such tragic event every decent person should be outraged at the crime and offer sympathy to the victims. It should not matter what religion they are, or whether they were young or old, even if they were men or women. Decent human beings should care about all people. But to insult the President and play politics at such a time is juvenile and childish. America and the world should be coming together in support.

I don’t know who is making the comparison to Hitler. Most people under the age of 30 or even 40 don’t know anything about him or what he actually did.
Most think it should just be forgotten or didn’t really happen.
No wonder why they compare D. Trump to Hitler, Hitler is a fictitious character to them, so they’re making up their own ideas.

Why aren’t they blaming the media? THAT is where the hate is emanating from. They are the culprits and antagonistic sd’s that are promoting and creating the hate.
Technology has been great, but now television needs to compete with all the other sources of information on the internet. So what is the most logical? TV needs to be more sensational.

Lay the blame where the blame is coming from.

Lorrie Goldstein’s comments make sense to me. Blocking the U.S. president from visiting the tragic site is divisive and politics have no place in this time of healing for American Jews. Let the justice system sort out the charges and prosecute this hate filled killer.
