AIPAC hilarity

It is reported that various presumably-liberal senior figures at AIPAC are crazily annoyed that the crowd gave Donald Trump “wild applause” and standing ovations.

As reported by the New Jersey Jewish Standard, “Donald Trump, staking out a pro-Israel position that had nary a mention of neutrality, earned the most enthusiastic response of any speaker at AIPAC’s annual conference.” How dare the crowd like Trump a lot better than respectable Democrats like Hillary!

      • Goebbels was the only top Nazi who was an interesting person.

        Hitler: bonkers
        Goering: buffoon
        Heydrich: talented and intelligent, but basically your stereotypical German nationalist Jew hater
        Himmler: cowardly lickspittle with really bizarre ideas
        Hess: really really insane
        Rosenberg: boring
        Eichmann: see Heydrich

        Goebbels was a man of a different cloth. Master of the modern political campaign, original thinker, successful with the world’s most beautiful women despite being 5’3 and literally loyal unto death. He was an evil bastard, but unlike the other Nazis, he was an interesting evil bastard.

  5. I wonder what Trump’s anti-semitic fans think of this? Not all Trump fans are anti-semites, obviously but some are.

    “My Trump Tweets Earned Me So Many Anti-Semitic Haters That I Bought a Gun”
    http://forward.com/opinion/336159/my-trump-tweets-earned-me-so-many-anti-semitic-haters-that-i-bought-a-gun/

    I wonder if Trump’s anti-semite fans hand-wave away his inconsistencies on Israel the same way Trump’s anti-immigration fans hand-wave away his inconsistencies on immigration. Or the way Trump’s economically liberal fans hand-wave away his inconsistencies on tax cuts for the rich and trade.

    It says something that Trump can be such a vast variety of things to so many different sorts of people, all of whom claim to know what the man REALLY thinks in his deepest heart.

        Cruz once lectured a group of Arab Christian refugees about Zionism. Not a tactful man.

        The anti white (anti white gentile, that is) stuff that I have seen from a huge amount of the Jewish elite I will admit that I have never seen among a rank and file Jew, but I have seen an absolutely huge amount of “we are a nation of immigrants” from the overwhelming majority of non-prole Jews I have come in contact with who are not part of my family. American Jews, in my personal experience, are really fucking liberal.

        Otis the Sweaty

      • Prole Jews are not like that at all. Not all Jews are Democrat-voting Manhattanites (who don’t think much differently at all than white gentile Manhattanites).

        In the last mayoral election, super-liberal De Blasio won more of the white gentile vote than he did of the Jewish vote.

      • This is so annoying. Anyone who isn’t an actual member of the elite is “prole.” That would make 90% of all Jews elite, which is silly. Someone who graduates from state U, isn’t prole, but he isn’t elite either.

        Otis, as far as hating America goes, and having nasty attitudes towards normal gentiles (otherwise known as “proles” hereabouts) I have never seen anyone who can beat upper class mainline Protestants. Elite Jews are basically aping them.

      • but I have seen an absolutely huge amount of “we are a nation of immigrants” from the overwhelming majority of non-prole Jews

        I’ve seen nostalgia for the history of Jewish and ethnic white immigration from a century ago. But I haven’t seen that sympathy extend to immigrants of recent decades, baseless internet paranoia notwithstanding.

        Polls indicate average Jews want less immigration. That should be no surprise since urban areas – unlike heartland regions that often look like they did 40 years ago- with traditional Jewish majorities have been radically transformed to the detriment of average urban Jews.

        New York would be a paradise beyond imagination for American Jews today if it still had the big ethnic white majority it did in the 1950s. The Jewish middle class would be able to send their children to public schools, afford apartments, not have to commute from the suburbs to the city everyday, and save on taxes. Among many, many other advantages to having a white New York.

        http://cis.org/ReligionAndImmigrationPoll

        In contrast to many religious leaders, most members think immigration is too high.

        Jews: 50 percent said it is too high; 5 percent said is too low; 22 percent just right.

        http://www.jta.org/news/article/2010/10/12/2741253/poll-jewish-support-for-obama-falling

        The survey asked its Jewish respondents: “A new law in Arizona gives police the power to ask people they’ve stopped to verify their residency status. Supporters say this will help crack down on illegal immigration. Opponents say it could violate civil rights and lead to racial profiling. On balance, do you support or oppose this law?”

        The result was a slim majority in favor of the law: 52 percent to 46 percent.

      • How many Jews opposed the stop & frisk policy in NYC, which worked so well for so many years?

        The vast majority of Jews were fine with it. BTW, The latter-day radical left movement is very un-Jewish. I’m actually pretty shocked at how, ahem, “goy” it is. (Goy is not a word I use. I’m using it ironically, because the alt-right uses it, along with “to shoah,” and “oy vey”.)

        There are so few Jews in the modern day radical left movement that the alt-right Jew haters must fixate on Soros. Soros I hate, but anyone who thinks that he’s pulling the strings is an asshole. A total asshole. Having once been a leftist myself, I can you that they don’t need some rich guy’s money to cause havoc.

        Soros is to the left as Isis is to Islamic fundamentalism. He’s a convenient target. The real truth is a radicalized cadre of grassroots maniacs who want to destroy society.

        You know nothing of Manhattan, Park Slope and even Southern Prole Brooklyn (which has a significant population of Middle Class Jews).

        Jewish residents are overrepresented in the priciest and swankiest neighborhoods in NYC. The Upper West Side, Lincoln Square, and Central Park East, are a few examples. In Park Slope, Jews outnumber gentiles, when it comes to owning multimillion dollar brownstones

        Many Jews who grew up in other parts of the United States, now flood Manhattan, just as much as their White gentile transplants.

        Furthermore, most landlords/real estate developers in NYC are Jews, who charge premium prices.

  8. Without Trump in the race, all the pols would still be chanting the “Religion of Peace” idiocy.
    Trump has slipped the leash of political correctness.
    This is making the left and their enforcers crazy – Years of work are being destroyed by Trump.
    Soon almost anyone will be able to say that bringing millions of Mohammedans into America is
    not a smart idea.
    Normal people, Jews and Christians alike, cheer for Trump because he describes what is obvious
    in reality – rather than the PC “Diversity-is-Our-Strength” fantasy world of the left.
    Trump has brought freedom of speech back into the public sphere.
    That is why they cheer him everywhere.

  10. By the way, this has to be brought up: Ted Cruz’s wife is way, waaaaaaaaayyyyy hotter than Trump’s wife. Now, maybe Trump’s wife was hotter pre plastic surgery, I dunno, but her cold, slightly odd, Eastern Euro looks are no comparison for Heidi Cruz’s wholesome American beauty.

    In fact, none of Trump’s wives have been particularly attractive. Ivana and Maples were basically plain janes. It’s kinda like how if you see a political rally in Beirut all the young women are knockouts but then you see their movie stars and beauty pageant winners and they look so ordinary.

    • It’s a common myth that models, even supermodels, are all sexy. A lot of them look strikingly weird or even ugly in person.

      What high-end modeling agents and marketers look for is:

      1) A distinctive “look” that will photograph well and re-enforce the brand identity. A lot of times that “look” is somewhat inhuman, alien, or robotic, because that plays well with the abstract/avante guarde campaigns used to sell high-end fashion, perfume, etc.

      2) Height and skinniness, which is needed to effectively model high-end fashion.

      3) Experience in the industry

      Laypeople confuse models with porn stars. The latter are supposed to ooze sexual allure and desirability, often in a grotesque, over-the-top caricature sort of way. Models are just tools, basically, used to sell products, sometimes with sex appeal, often not. Most models are elegant in some way, but not “beautiful” in the way most men would probably define it.
