World Cries Over Donald

World leader are even in a greater state of shock than are Americans over the impossible becoming the reality  of “President Donald Trump. Following are some comments from periodicals.

Guardian, UK:  “The unthinkable is only unthinkable if it happens. The Trump  triumph has echoes of the increasing alarming right ward shift in politics of other post industrial democracies to which  progressives have produced inadequate responses. It will be cheered in Moscow and Damascus which will feel embolded. But this is primarily an American tragedy.”

Der Spiegel, Germany: “Crude populism has triumphed over reason. Trump’s success is a shock for all those who had counted on the political wisdom of America. For Trump’s islamophobic, nationalistic, hateful statements only one thing can be said for it,  it won’t be good.”

Gerard Araud, French Ambassador to the US: “This is the end of an epoch. After this vote, anything is possible.”

Muslims “Hate’ The West

The ongoing mantra of Republicans is that Muslims ‘hate the West.’ Republicans insist that ALL Muslims support terrorism and seek to destroy the foundation of Western civilization. The German government last month issues a warning about a  suspected Muslim terrorist named Jabar al Bakr. It turned  out that Bakr had gone to Munich and was worried about being caught. He approached a Syrian  refugee expecting this man would help him hide. The Syrian is now known as Ahmed,he cannot reveal his name since he has relatives in Syria.

Ahmed took Bakr to his home, then called two friends, Mohammad and Sami. The three men tied up Bakr. They called police, but  no one understood their language. Ahmed took a photo of Bakr being tied up, took it to the police station, and the result was that Bakr was arrested. Unfortunately, the police allowed him to commit suicide.

How many Western news media reports how Muslims aid police. German police estimate that one third of all tips about terrorists come from German Muslims.

Forgotten People–Refugees

I am old enough to recall when, not thousands, but millions of people were refugees in Europe. World War II created the necessity for millions of people to leave one area that was once their home, and flee to another since their home was now part of a different nation. Today, hundreds of thousands are leaving the Middle East, and parts of Africa in search of  a new life. Ironically,  fewer and fewer people are moving from Mexico, despite the hysteria created by Donald Trump and fear mongers.

So, what happened when MILLIONS were refugees. I guess since so many people fell into that category, there was recognition of the need to do something. Frankly, most of them did not have any nation to return to. There were at least a million Jews who had survived the Holocaust, and the thought of returning to areas of Europe where their former neighbors had aided the Nazis made it impossible to return. So, wha to do today?

1. Europe and the US have to invest billions in the Middle East and Africa to develop jobs.

2. There is need for major water development projects to deal with decline in rainfall.

3. There is need for a regulated, reasonable number of refugees for each country in Europe and the US and Canada. Actually, Canada already is accepting Syrians.

4.How about each college in America sponsoring ten refugee students with free scholarships and room and board?

Just DO something!

Jimmy Fallon Interviews Hitler

Jimmy Fallon had Donald Trump on his show last night, and he fell over himself in posing fluff type questions such as how healthy he feels or did he ever think he would run for president. The audience shouted their approval as Trump once again spouted nonsense and cliches about, “Make America Great Again.” We wonder how Jimmy would handle an interview with Adolf Hitler.

J: So, Adolf,so wonderful to have you with us tonight, let’s everyone give Adolf a warm welcome. So, tell me, how are things going with Eva Braun and you these days?
A: Jimmy, wonderful, wonderful, just the other day we visited one of our new recreation  camps for Jews, Jimmy, you  should have heard them cheering Eva and me.  Fantastic.

J: I now that some people claim that you do not like Jews, please share with the audience your feelings toward Jews.

A: Jimmy, some of my best friends are Jews, I even sold  my paintings to Jews. All I want for my Jewish friends is plenty  of fresh warm air, and a good shower at the  end  of the day.

J: So, these stories about concentration camps, are they true?

A: Jimmy, if there was an epidemic,wouldn’t you want to concentrate those  effected by the germs so they would not spread their illness to others? I assure you, Jimmy, people get good exercise at the concentration camp, not a single one leaves feeling ill again.

J: Well, thanks, Adolf, wonderful to finally  get at the truth. So folks, give Adolf and the entire Nazi party a great, great hand!!

Donald Flunks History–Again

It is rather clear that Donald Trump and a history book never formed much of a friendship.  Donald on the origin of the European Union: “the reason it got together was like a  consortium  so that it could compete with the United States.” Now, if Donald Trump had taken my history course,he would have learned:

1. During World War II, most of Western Europe had been destroyed by the German army,and subsequent battles.

2. The American Marshal Plan was designed to help Europe rebuild itself, a condition for assistance from the US was for European nations to work together and share resources. America feared that unless Western Europe was rebuilt, communism might trump in their nations.

3. European nations came together AT THE REQUEST OF THE UNITED STATES. The last thing on their mind was competing with the United States. Their major reason was to restore the destroyed economies.

4. Actually, there was another  reason, American leaders wanted Europe to rebuild, SO THEY WOULD PURCHASE AMERICAN GOODS!!

Donald, have you tried reading a book?

Why Kids Kill

Another mass killing, another ongoing debate as to why some 18 year old boy who was educated in German schools after coming from Iran decided to blast away at a mall and murder nine people. Ali Sonboly and family  immigrated from Iran and he spent his childhood in Germany, a nation that has accepted a few million people from the Middle East. After his murderous rampage in a mall and at McDonald’s, ‘experts’ are now discussing why he became a terrorist.

Class mates indicate that “at school, Ali was often  bullied by others and really unpopular.  He seemed to have  hardly any friends.” This description fits  the Columbine boys who murdered their class mates in Colorado. The difference this time is that Ali had opportunities to read books such as “Why Kids Kill” and to spend hours engaging in discussions with angry Muslims.

The reason kids kill is clear –they confronted lives in which they came to believe they were outsiders and it was time to get revenge.

 

 

 

 

Bill Weld Gets Carried Away

Bill Weld was formerly a Republican governor of Massachusetts and served on the Holocaust Commission under President George Bush. He currently is running for vice president on the Libertarian ticket which is composed of people who cannot stand Donald Trump and have misgiving concerning Hillary Clinton.  Mr. Weld recently got carried away with his anger toward Donald Trump. He, particularly, was frightened at the  Trump proposal to somehow round up eleven million illegal immigrants, place them in “concentration camps”and then somehow send them back to Mexico.

In 1938, Nazi Germans unleashed horrible attacks upon Jews that is known as Kristallnacht. “I can hear the glass crunching on Kristallnacht in the ghettos of Warsaw and Vienna  when I hear Trump’s plan announced.”

Sorry, Mr. Weld, you are completely incorrect about Kristallnacht. Germans did not invade and conquer Poland until 1939, and there were no similar outbreaks against Jews in Austria on that night. If you claim to be a member of the Holocaust Commission, the least you can do is know your Holocaust history.It is mistakes such as these that allow Trump to complain people distort his ideas.

Voice Of America

Edward Tucker is an68 retired carpenter and  he is very angry. “I think Trump is nuts, but I’d love to have him as president to see what happens. I wouldn’t want to end up in some kind of war or anything. But, something is going to change if he’s president, we just don’t know what.”

1933: “OK, so this guy Adolf Hitler is some kind of nut and says crazy things about Jews, but I’d love to have him as leader of Germany. I wouldn’t want to end up  in some kind of war or anything. But, something is going to change if he’s our Leader, we just don’t know what.”

By the way, exactly who did Edward Tucker vote for these past twenty years? I’ll be he voted for Republicans who created the inequality that bothers him!

How The World Views Donald Trump?

Secretary of State John Kerry is concerned at the image of America being conveyed by the Trump quest for publicity–getting to become president.

France: Would you consider heading the National Front which seeks to send Muslims back to where they came from? Of course, we doubt that many French women would consider you to be a seducer with words of love and tenderness.

Germany: Herr, Donald, we regret that you were not around when the guy who shouted even louder than you knew how to handle inferior creatures of life. What a wonderful head of the SS you would have made!

Russia: Vladimir Putin wants to meet you man-to-man in a wrestling contest. Winner takes all- Putin wins, he is the candidate for president. If Ted born in Canada can run, why not a guy from Russia!

ISIS Land. Donald, we have to admit when it comes to bullshitting, you are the number one leader in the world. We will trade you one carpet bombing for a bomb anywhere in Texas.

China. Mr. Trump we are willing to offer you as many exports to China as you desire–tariff free. Of course, the goods will  have to be made in Vietnam, you know, the place where John McCain lived in the Hotel Hanoi while real patriots were fighting the Viet Cong.

Cuba: Donald, we are not Mexican peasants seeking to head for the USA. We offer you an entire country in which Spanish speaking people would welcome your Great,Great, Business ideas and keep them at home.

Donald Gets Endorsements

Say what they may, but opponents of Donald Trump would so love to get the endorsements the red haired guy gets every day–and night. He got the OK from his fellow bully, one Chris Christie, you know the sort of chubby guy who is now the favorite of about 30% of the people of New Jersey. But, Donald has now hit the jackpot. First, he was given the OK by Jean Marie Le Pen. OK, so you don’t know this man. Jean Marie founded the National Front in France years ago. He informed the French people that being occupied by the Nazis was really not that bad. He also has insisted for over a half century there was NO HOLOCAUST. The kind Nazis simply wanted to give Jews an opportunity to get clean in the shower room.

After the French OK, Donald even hit a bigger jackpot. David Duke joined in the chorus of those wanting to “bring back America” with the leadership of Donald Trump. The Duke man used to be a big shot in the KKK in Louisiana. Mr. Trump welcomes the support of all Americans and sees no reason to deny the help of those who believe in white supremacy. If they are living breathing Americans and can vote in November, welcome to the Trump circus. After all, David opposes Hispanic rapists and murders along with Donald.

It’s just too bad Adolf is no longer alive. After all, he hated all inferior races and certainly those rapists and killers from down South fit into the lower race category of the Nazis. Anyway, Donald has now got the entire Nazis vote–both here and everywhere!

P.S. I have been informed by sources that ISIS soon will announce its support for Donald Trump. You want chaos in the Middle East, what better than a President Trump??
