The Watering Hole; Friday May 6 2016; Zieg HEIL!! Drumpf Ist Hier!

Trump has nailed down the Republican candidacy for POTUS, and some are more delighted at the prospect of a President Trump than are others.

David Duke Hopes To Get Donald Trump To Embrace Full-Blown Anti-Semitism

Duke said it was high time “to start naming the enemy that’s orchestrating our destruction: If we don’t dispose the Jews, there is no hope for our people.”  . . .

He explained that Jews “control” the media, academia and the political world, “and I think that we’ve really got to start going full bore on that. I’m not saying that Trump has to but we’ve got to and that’s the only way we’re going to move people like Trump more toward doing the things we’ve got to do.”

David Duke Hails Donald Trump For Thwarting The ‘Jewish Supremacists Who Control Our Country’

. . . white nationalist leader David Duke celebrated Donald Trump’s “amazing victory” in the Indiana primary, which allowed him to become the presumptive Republican nominee for president, hailing Trump for terrifying wealthy “Jewish extremists” and exposing the “Jewish supremacists who control our country.” . . .

Duke urged listeners to “make sure that Trump understands that we expect him to follow through on these things and we expect him to be our White Knight, our advocate and our person.”

He said that white nationalists must continue to move the political center to the right in order to make Trump’s ideas more mainstream.

“This is a movement to take America back, and when we say ‘take America back,’ we know exactly what that means,” Duke said, “and I think everybody who says that knows what it means. And if we don’t keep putting that heat, if we don’t keep pushing the envelope over, we’ve got to be so far to the right — maybe that’s the wrong for it, ‘right-wing,’ ‘left-wing,’ doesn’t have much meaning — but so far to the right for our people that Trump seems moderate so that he will have space to move to the right himself because we’ve got to start an evolutionary movement to the right.”

David Duke: Donald Trump Comparisons May Rehabilitate Adolf Hitler’s Image

. . . whatever you want to say about Donald Trump, there’s no way you can say any of this stuff, it’s crazy, but they say this.

The truth is, by the way, they might be rehabilitating that fellow with the mustache back there in Germany, because I saw a commercial against Donald Trump, a really vicious commercial, comparing what Donald Trump said about preserving America and making America great again to Hitler in Germany preserving Germany and making Germany great again and free again and not beholden to these Communists on one side, politically who were trying to destroy their land and their freedom, and the Jewish capitalists on the other, who were ripping off the nation through the banking system. We have the same thing going on here with Goldman Sachs. It was a commercial, I saw that this morning and I was amazed by that commercial. It was a commercial against Trump but I don’t think it’s having the effect that they want it to have. . . .

You know, if you love your country and if you love, or at least what your country is supposed to represent, what it originally represented, because I don’t know if we can everything love our government — we certainly can’t love everything our government is doing today because the leaders of this country, the people who have control over this country, are purposefully wiping … If you’re a European person, the government is purposefully wiping you out and your families and your children and your future. They are purposefully transforming this country into a Third World nation. And if you want to see the direction of this country, just look at a Communist here, Bernie Sanders, running and winning a lot of victories in major states, and who is a former Communist and is a Marxist right now, folks.

And if that’s not enough, there’s this:

‘Hail Emperor Trump!’ White Nationalists Take Victory Lap Following Trump Win

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been energizing and electrifying white supremacists, and their excitement is hitting new highs now that he is clearly the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee.

The neo-Nazi site Daily Stormer, which endorsed Trump two weeks after his immigrant-disparaging campaign launch, is filled with posts celebrating the GOP candidate’s victory this morning. “White men in America and across the planet are partying like it’s 1999 following Trump’s decisive victory over the evil enemies of our race,” says one post, which also celebrates that “[t]he Jews are in full-on freak-out mode.”

[. . .]

“The fires of nationalism, the fires of identity, the fires of anger against the corrupt establishment are arising all around Europe, all around America, all around the entire world. So we just need to strap in, because the future is gonna definitely be interesting, and I believe we could have a switch in our direction even more…Hail, Emperor Trump! And hail, victory! ”

I have the distinct feeling that if the November election celebration should happen to belong to Trump, the first thing I’ll be reminded of will be the words of André Francois-Poncet, the French Ambassador to Germany who, on the night of Hitler’s rise to power as German Chancellor — January 30 1933 — wrote:

The torches [the marchers] brandished formed a river of fire, a river with hastening, unquenchable waves, a river in spate sweeping with a sovereign rush over the very heart of the city. . . . The onlookers, drawn up on either side of the marching columns, burst into a vast clamor. The river of fire flowed past the french embassy whence with heavy heart and filled with foreboding I watched its luminous wake.

Hitler’s slogans, oft stated, were Germany First! and Make Germany Great Again! The slogan that stuck, however, was different:

Arbeit - Auschwitz

Do we really want to go there?

    • “… take America back”…. (to a pre-1215 society).

      The implication in that statement is that whoever has Amukkka right now is *not* in fact American ….. the fascist mindset on display in that single statement.

      • I couldn’t agree more. Makes me recall a bumper sticker I saw several times on the Navajo “Reservation” a decade or two ago. It read “OK White Man, You’ve Seen Our Land, Now Go Home” (or something close to that). As for me, had it not been for my (1) German and (3) Swedish immigrant grandparents, I’d prolly be a native-born Swede instead of an immigrant-to-Amurkkka “white” offspring. I’d much prefer that. Or, fate willing, I wouldn’t mind being Navajo, Apache, Commanche, Pima, Hohokam, Anasazi — etc. A Native, i.o.w. And in either case would be happy as hell to never have so much as ever heard of David Puke, Bat Pukecannon, Drumpf, et al. et al.

    • Yeah, I long for the good ole days when workers knew their places.

    • About ten years ago, “Uncle Pat” got fired from MSNBC for saying in one of his books that it was a bad thing that white people would no longer be a majority of this country very soon. He actually viewed that as a bad thing.

  1. Jane Schneider occasionally posts stuff from The Weather Channel here. I just noticed that they’ve ‘improved’ their site once again. I used to be able to find all kinds of data on there like previous months temps and rainfall amounts, as well as monthly averages, etc. I haven’t been able to do that since about three changes ago. On my hand-me-down iPhone, the Weather Channel radar is so useless I have to use Accuweather’s radar to get an image big enough to see the storm patterns. It’s also the only one I can put into motion that works. (Just a rant.)

    • We used to joke about the weather channel, calling it “the pregnancy channel”.
      It seemed like every female weather reporter was there for a while and then started showing a baby bump.
      As pilots waiting around the flight room, we often speculated just what the hell was going on behind the scenes.
      BTW, pilots have a really warped sense of humor.

  2. Howdy all! I’ve been down for a week recovering from foot surgery. Been reading a lot about the Drumpf.
    Here’s two issues that expose him for the fraud that he is.
    He’s now cozying up to the Super Pac idea, saying he has no ability to stop them from donating to his election.
    And, he’s also touting that he will reduce the federal deficit by bargaining with debt holders to take less than 100% of face value.
    He Really Doesn’t get it.
    At all.
    Two more nails to pound into his electoral coffin.

    • Trump’s only contact with the real world is that part of it he see’s thru his window. All else is contrived (including his campaign’s “tremendous” crowds). He has zero understanding of the world almost everyone but him endures on a daily basis. That’s probably true of everyone alive that has a silver spoon up his ass.

    • “less than 100% of face value”

      I believe that is called “defaulting” or “declaring bankruptcy” …. something Teh Donald is well experienced in.

      Can you imagine that coming out in a debate with Hillary Clinton?

      • Declaring bankruptcy is my best guess. I mean, Drumpf has done it what, four or five times? And look at him — still rich, still got great hair, chick by his side. What else is there in life? Bankruptcy. Yay, rah rah.

  3. Trump Adviser: Jews Supporting Mideast Peace Are ‘Far Worse Than Kapos’

    David Friedman, one of Donald Trump’s “two advisors on Israel,” penned a column today attacking journalist Peter Beinart for criticizing the GOP presidential candidate for, among other things, tapping Friedman as one of his advisers.

    [. . .]

    Mr. Beinart . . . has done us a service, albeit unintentionally. He has shown us the danger of the Jewish left – the lost souls who blame Israel for not making a suicidal “peace” with hateful radical Islamists hell bent on Israel’s destruction. This is Hillary Clinton’s crowd, and they are no friends of Israel.

    Donald Trump’s view of Israel isn’t quite as nuanced as that of Mr. Beinart nor as academic as that of President Obama. He thinks that when radical Islamic terrorists are trying to kill you, the right thing to do is kill them first. Don’t negotiate, reason or cajole. Just defeat them. Or as Mr. Trump would say, “win.”

    The beat goes on.

  4. This one’s strictly for Terrythe Turtle:

    Labour’s Khan becomes first Muslim mayor of London after bitter campaign

    Sadiq Khan, the son of a bus driver, became London’s first Muslim mayor on Friday, seeing off a Conservative challenger who attempted to link him to extremism and securing a much-needed victory for his opposition Labour Party.
    As New York mayor Bill de Blasio sent his congratulations, Khan had yet to receive official notification of his victory, which would go some way to soothing the wounds of Labour which suffered losses in Thursday’s other local elections.

    Dealt a crushing blow in Scotland, where it came third behind the Scottish National Party and Britain’s ruling Conservatives, Labour did better than expected in England, saving its left-leaning leader from an early challenge.

    But the big prize was the London mayor vote, which pitted Khan, 45, who grew up in public housing in inner city London, against Conservative Zac Goldsmith, 41, the son of a billionaire financier.

    I thought it was Ceti Alpha V where Kahn was from…

    • Actually Earth, he was deposited on Ceti Alpha V but when Ceti Alpha iV exploded, it became Ceti Alpha IV which explains why Chekov was surprised to find Khan there but even more surprising is that Chekov and Khan recognize each when in fact Chekov was not on the Enterprise at the time that it encountered the Botany Bay and woke Khan and his superrace of humans from cryo…

      …. what’s the rest of the comment about?😉

    • It was a nasty campaign, caught the last week of it last week. Goldsmith for his anti8-muslim sentiment and Khan for calling moderate Muslims a ‘bunch of Uncle Toms’…. well we’ll see where this plays out.

  5. Roy Moore, Alabama Judge, Suspended Over Gay Marriage Stance

    An Alabama judicial oversight body on Friday filed a formal complaint against Roy S. Moore, the chief justice of the state’s Supreme Court, charging that he had “flagrantly disregarded and abused his authority” in ordering the state’s probate judges to refuse applications for marriage licenses by same-sex couples.

    As a result of the charges, Chief Justice Moore, 69, has been immediately suspended from the bench and is facing a potential hearing before the state’s Court of the Judiciary, a panel of judges, lawyers and other appointees. Among possible outcomes at such a hearing would be his removal from office.

    Maybe we can get him booted from the bench again. He clearly can’t be counted on to hear any case impartially where his religion is in conflict with settled law.

  6. My cable guide listed UP on MSHRC from 7 to 9 this morning, but it was just a continuation of Weekends With Alex Witt. No panel discussions like the real UP. It does appear that Joy Reid is on during Melissa Harris Perry’s slot from 9 to 11.

  7. Colorado officially demonstrates it is far different from numerous other corners of the Mountain West:

    It’s official! Colorado is the first state in the nation to pass a bill that designates a holiday for public lands. . . . During a time when land seizure extremists are running rampant across the West, this new holiday is an important way to show that Coloradans want to celebrate, not seize, our public lands!

  8. Hi. Yes, it’s closer to Sunday than it is to Friday, but I am working on a post for today. Nothing political. Just my thoughts on the Infinite Universe and why Creationists are Crazy. I hope you’ll enjoy it. Infinity can be mind-blowing.
