Sheldon Adelson 2010: I am not Israeli. The uniform that I wore in the military, unfortunately, was not an Israeli uniform. It was an American uniform, although my wife was in the IDF and one of my daughters was in the IDF ... our two little boys, one of whom will be bar mitzvahed tomorrow, hopefully he'll come back-- his hobby is shooting -- and he'll come back and be a sniper for the IDF.

Gingrich on Adelson.

People close to Mr. Adelson said that he wants to be certain about Mr. Romney's positions on key issues, including support for Israel against aggressors in the Middle East. Mr. Adelson has publicly criticized President Barack Obama's support of Israel as too weak.
Mr. Adelson has told friends that he intends to give at least $100 million to conservative causes and candidates this election cycle. He contributed some $250,000 to Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who just won against a labor union-forced recall election there. [link]

'No American is dedicating as much of his money to defeat Obama as Adelson, the casino magnate who has made more money in the last three years than any other American.' So, what does he want?

I think they want more, subby. It doesn't matter how far to the right Obama and the democrats move, they want more. Heck, Boehner apparently got 98% of what he wanted, and it still wasn't enough. In the meantime, while conservatives and the base keep pushing the envelope, the democrats vehemently discourage their own base from making waves. They are all being bullied into accepting increasingly conservative policies.

The situation in America is going to keep getting worse and worse until Americans reject both parties and their corporatist agenda.

He didn't say that. Don't put words in his mouth.

What he 'did' say was that there were war profiteers in WWI that happened to be Jewish. This is not a lie, nor is it an anti-Semitic statement, it's simple reality.

It's not saying that the Jews brought it upon themselves, but it IS saying that when Hitler said that there were Jew war profiteers, he wasn't lying, he was simply using that as an excuse and scapegoat to murder the entire Jewish population.

I don't know what could be more delicious ironing than to have a guy make billions off of the gambling habits of millions of Real Americans and turn around to use that money to further a set of policies that is diametrically opposed to their well-being.

But, if you think about it, gambling and supporting tax cuts for the rich are part and parcel of the same magical thinking:

"If I win big on this slot machine I can be rich and retire!"

"When that happens I don't wanna pay taxes!"

"C'mon, slot machine, show me the munnies!"

true dat.

Had Jews like him in Germany too. WWI war profiteers, etc.

heh, as always the inveterate racist that accuses the jews of bringing the Holocaust on themselves and the liberals are on the exact same page.

He didn't say that. Don't put words in his mouth.

What he 'did' say was that there were war profiteers in WWI that happened to be Jewish. This is not a lie, nor is it an anti-Semitic statement, it's simple reality.

It's not saying that the Jews brought it upon themselves, but it IS saying that when Hitler said that there were Jew war profiteers, he wasn't lying, he was simply using that as an excuse and scapegoat to murder the entire Jewish population.


Hey, everybody! Here is what I said:

One out of every 100 Jews is a real goniff. And because of that one goniff some of the goyim say that ALL Jews are bad.

When I was a kid my mother used to tell me that, "we Jews have to be especially good," for that very reason.

I didn't say anything about Jews being war profiteers (I don't know if that's true or not).

I've certainly known too many Jews who were slumlords. And some years ago there was a Jewish organization called, "Murder, Inc." that wasn't too nice, either.

So, what I'm saying is that it's people like Adelson and Bugsy and Lepke that make life very unpleasant for the rest of us Jews.

Okay? Everybody got it? Thanks.

If Obama wins he should take a "fend-for-yourself Israel" stance just to spite Adelson.

Obama has a chance to win this election but over time the GOP billionaires will win. Local and state elections will be swayed, then districts gerrymandered. Citizens United was an enormous victory for the 1% in the long term, them and their spawn. Yes there are left-leaning billionaires like Soros but most who hve the money on the left would rather feed the hungry or get innoculations for millions of destitute Africans than rig elections.

Koch's and Adelson's want nothing more than everything and they will have it.

People close to Mr. Adelson said that he wants to be certain about Mr. Romney's positions on key issues, including support for Israel against aggressors in the Middle East. Mr. Adelson has publicly criticized President Barack Obama's support of Israel as too weak.
Mr. Adelson has told friends that he intends to give at least $100 million to conservative causes and candidates this election cycle. He contributed some $250,000 to Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who just won against a labor union-forced recall election there. [link]

that's why it was never a problem for the NY Times editorial board when Soros spent $25 million to beat bush in 2004.
typical hypocritical liberal authoritarians. they want the freedom to do what they want, but also want the ability to proscribe your actions when they deem immoral and unhealthy for you personally or society as a whole.

"He is the perfect illustration of the squalid state of political money, spending sums greater than any political donation in history to advance his personal, ideological and financial agenda, which is wildly at odds with the nation's needs."


I'll be perfectly honest. I was 20 for the 2004 election. I didn't really start paying attention to politics until early in 2009 when Congress started building the health care bill. Hell, 90% of the people Glenn Beck and other conservative media personalities tell their viewers to fear are completely unknown to me at first, like Saul Alinsky and George Soros.

We've grown up in an environment where people on both sides of the aisle speak out of both sides of their mouths at the same time.

It cheeses me off when anyone tries to buy democracy for themselves. Adelson is a sub-human piece of scum.

Say Mitt, A few weeks ago Rabbi Jonah Mandel said on his weekly Israeli radio show that "Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world - only to serve the People of Israel. In Israel, death has no dominion over them... With gentiles, it will be like any person - they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one's donkey would die, they'd lose their money. This is his servant... That's why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew." What do you think of that?

I feel fortunate to serve you. If you say jump I ask, How High?

zetar: Party Boy: zetar: Read, Nathan Englanders's, "What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank." The basic theme is American Jews ask themselves, "if the pogroms come to the U.S. who among our goyim friends would hide us?" This is a very real fear.

Every Jew in America at one time or another has asked themselves, "If the camps start in America, who can I trust to hide me?"

I am familiar with that work.

Acknowledge that you are advising the thread to notice the difference in The Jew who is a "schmuck" and "one Jew out of a hundred," ...yet you are conflating the United States with Eastern European Pogroms and Nazi Germany.

How deserving is that?

No, I'm not conflating the U.S. with Eastern Europe and Nazi Germany.

I'm saying that all U. S. Jews still harbor that fear; be it rational or not. I'm first generation born in the U.S. My father was born in Poland and just barely got out in time. Yes, I had relatives that died in the camps.

What if the Christian extremists really take over? What if Kansas, or someplace in the South, passes a law that Christianity is the only 'legitimate' religion?

/ Yes, these are just fears; but these are wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat fears.

FTFAL Mr. Adelson's other overriding interest is his own wallet. He rails against the president's "socialist-style economy" and redistribution of wealth, but what he really fears is Mr. Obama's proposal to raise taxes on companies like his that make a huge amount of money overseas.

He's 80 years old and worth 25 billion dollars. What exactly is he afraid is going to happen to "his own wallet" in the few remaining years he has left? He has two remaining adopted children who are adults and he answers to no one on earth. No, Adelson isn't worried about his wallet, he's just a monkey in a lab cage, pushing that pleasure button until his arm falls off because he doesn't know what else to do.

I didn't get much into politics until the Bush administration started pushing for the Iraq war. Then I started looking at who was getting rich off of my brother-in-law going overseas and killing brown people. The media really showed the horrors of war in a new way, publishing candid pictures taken by American soldiers of themselves doing horrific things, and seemingly thinking it normal.

Now that my brother-in-law is back home, suffering from physical and psychological damage caused by the war, and the horrible things he did over there, I look at it as my kind of duty to satirically point out the absurdities which define policies advancing the causes of the wealthy and powerful at the expense of the bourgeoisie. The more I learn, the more liberal I become. This has seemingly isolated me from my devout Christian family who believe that the Republicans are all that is standing between them and an evil, socialist, atheist world, and they seem very hurt when I point out that they are voting against their own interests. People don't like to be wrong.

So, anyways, that's why I post on Fark. It gives me an outlet to express my actual thoughts that I don't have within my family or social groups. I can handle the abuse and insults from strangers on the Internet who disagree with me more so than the same from my family and friends.

They got their asses kicked when they tried to walk off with half of the country last time, so now they're going to try to take the whole thing by bludgeoning the rest of us with a stolen election, citizen's united, and a metric shiat-ton of poorly hidden hate.

We should either hold them accountable for ALL of their dirty dealings with the American people, or we will have to fight fire with fire.

Justices Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas... you were warned.

The five Republican-appointed SCOTUS justices who saddled America with their infamous Citizens United ruling knew exactly what they were doing, they're not that stupid. What they didn't figure was that the drawn-out Republican primaries in 2012 and the upcoming presidential election would expose just how corrupting unlimited corporate and individual campaign donations would be.

Or maybe they did. We may never know.

There is a glimmer of hope for the future though, even though it will be too late for November's carnival of souls... back in February justices Ginsburg and Breyer suggested that the court reconsider its controversial 2010 decision that allowed unlimited corporate and union spending in elections. This was in response to the ass-kicking Montana's supreme court gave corporations and rich assholes trying to overturn it's century-old ban on corporate campaign spending in the state, invoking Citizens United yo do so.

"Montana's experience, and experience elsewhere since this court's decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, make it exceedingly difficult to maintain that independent expenditures by corporations 'do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption,' " Ginsburg wrote.

Unless someone on the court get some balls, we're gonna be dealing with this sh*t a long, long time.

The election is in 2004, not 2005. He might want to counter with "..bu..bu I said outlay in that election." However, this article (TFA) is not an outlay in that election. There is a need to use proper analogues.

2004 Anti-Bush Billionaire to Give More
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 - George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist who has given $18 million to Democratic advocacy groups to defeat President Bush, is preparing to spend millions more because he fears that Senator John Kerry might lose.

The points he fails to grasp with this "whataboutery" is the amount of money and the role in finance and free speech in this election - and the terrible decision of Citizens United.

In the US, we as a group are quite individualistic and have difficulties with other who think in terms of groups.

Certainly Adelson is going great for someone of his age - individually. However, the TFA mentions some groups as his focus. What are the groups mentioned in the TFA that he is concerned with?

I'm guessing never. I've been wondering for a while now why one of these billionaires or a group of billionaires don't start a private business as more of a public service than a for profit venture. Something such as a supermarket chain that operates as a break even proposition providing quality food and other essentials to everyone at the cheapest possible price point. They could make their initial investment back and basically never think about it again, no harm done to their fortune, jobs are created and the rest of the country benefits.

However, I cannot believe he will spend hundreds of millions of dollars making sure that other already rich people get even richer, unless that is simply a by-product of himself getting even richer.

In other words, I'll accept he might be bat-shiat crazy Americans-were-born-to-serve-the-Jews, but no way will I accept he's doing this so other people will get rich. You don't get as rich as he does by serving altruistic purposes, you do it by being an unprincipled and greedy bastard.

rewind2846: Justices Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas... you were warned.

The five Republican-appointed SCOTUS justices who saddled America with their infamous Citizens United ruling knew exactly what they were doing, they're not that stupid. What they didn't figure was that the drawn-out Republican primaries in 2012 and the upcoming presidential election would expose just how corrupting unlimited corporate and individual campaign donations would be.

Or maybe they did. We may never know.

There is a glimmer of hope for the future though, even though it will be too late for November's carnival of souls... back in February justices Ginsburg and Breyer suggested that the court reconsider its controversial 2010 decision that allowed unlimited corporate and union spending in elections. This was in response to the ass-kicking Montana's supreme court gave corporations and rich assholes trying to overturn it's century-old ban on corporate campaign spending in the state, invoking Citizens United yo do so.

"Montana's experience, and experience elsewhere since this court's decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, make it exceedingly difficult to maintain that independent expenditures by corporations 'do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption,' " Ginsburg wrote.

Unless someone on the court get some balls, we're gonna be dealing with this sh*t a long, long time.


Read an article recently that Justice Roberts was having second thoughts about the decision.

I'm guessing never. I've been wondering for a while now why one of these billionaires or a group of billionaires don't start a private business as more of a public service than a for profit venture. Something such as a supermarket chain that operates as a break even proposition providing quality food and other essentials to everyone at the cheapest possible price point. They could make their initial investment back and basically never think about it again, no harm done to their fortune, jobs are created and the rest of the country benefits.


Well, Gates and Buffett are trying to eradicate the top 10 preventable diseases in the world. And it looks like they might actually do it. However, much of what they're doing is outside the US, so they don't have to deal with the farked-up healthcare system here and paying out the wazoo for immunizations that cost a fraction outside the US but they are prohibited by law from re-importing to distribute freely to the needy.

The grocery store idea would be great until the guys at Kroger, Wal-Mart, and Piggly Wiggly decided they didn't like it very much and ran them out of town with legislation bought and paid for by their profits. And then they jacked up their own prices to cover their losses while the "at cost" chain was in operation.

When a person (term used loosely) like him gets to a certain level of wealth, the type of wealth that can change the politics of an entire city, county, state or country, the motivation is no longer money... it's power. The power to do whatever the f*ck they want, wherever the f*ck they want to, and to do it whenever the f*ck they want... to you.

Money that "probably" is going somewhere is reported by the NYT as money that they know of going somewhere.

Pathetic. And of course the left wing nuts eat this up and start repeating "oh, the NYT said $60M... blah blah blah".

The way I look at it, there are enough hungry people out there that he can pay to dance a jig for him. His wealth has given him power. Think Sheriff Joe and that "American Idol"-like competition he had for the jail inmates, where the prize was real food. Aren't there tons of people in this world country that would kiss his feet for $100? And don't even get me started about what he could get for $1000, or even $10,000.

$1,000,000 is when it starts getting really fun, and he has so much money he could spend $1,000,000 a day for the next 68 years, even if the rest of his money never earned him a dime of interest. Think about what you could get for $1,000,000 / day.

Maybe. As I said before, since the Iraq war, I go with "Who stands to profit from this?" And I can't for the life of me figure out just how much more Adelson believes he can profit. The only thing can be either he's attempting to force US policy, likely in relation to Israel, or he's actually guilty of the FCPA violations he is under investigation for, and doing this to keep his ass out of jail.

When you're already the richest man in the room, saying "I don't have enough money!" makes me wonder why. As far as the profit motive goes, it's possible he believes he will pay more than what he's donating to the GOP in taxes over the next 4 years under an Obama administration.

Whatever his reasoning, I can think of absolutely no altruistic reason he would have for buying the Presidency.

Never. People like him have no concept of the word "enough". They wish simply to acquire and devour anything and everything they can, just because they can.


Rammstein covers that concept pretty well in their song Mehr! (More!):


I need a lot, and lots of it
And only for me, only for me
Of all that one wants to have
Need I ten-times as much
I am never satisfied, I am never satisfied
It is better, when one has more

More!

What I have, is too little to me
I need a lot, I need a whole lot
Have nothing to give, why give anything?
I'm rich, but not that rich
Modesty? All that's good
I take everything, even when it's bad
I am never satisfied, I am never satisfied
It is better, when one has more

More!
Lots more!

I'm never content
There is no goal
There's not enough
It's never too much
All the others
Having so little
Give me what they have too
They don't need it

I think that perfectly captures the mindset these people* have.

I really like this phrase for how profit goes from ideological, to material, and back to ideological, and then material.

But yeah, theres certainly a mix. The financial ones need some time to play out. Adelson is practically beating you over the head withthe ideological ones to Israel.

On Iraq, qui bono isn't particularly helpful. Well, it is helpful to show how people used qui bono in 2003-2008ish to advance that this could be a secret overarching reason, but that fell flat when qui didn't actually bono there. (I'm looking at you, Naomi Klein).

This subject is a well worn subject with a lot of rigorous coverage - but it gets very limited traction among the public. The Neoconservative movement and how they managed to fight "big oil" and Powell at State... and win, is somehow not common knowledge.

Shame, they're still at it and looking to get access to power through a Romney election.

You may have a point - but then again, Obama has foiled Occam's Razor several times already during this campaign. Although he certainly seems like the smartest man in the room, I don't want to sell the Conservatives short on intelligence and political manipulating. They get tons of money and votes from people that are voting against their own interests every day.

What if this is nothing but a sham campaign, during which the Republicans will pour a crap-ton of money into putting up the least-liked candidate, and, once he loses, they'll be able to point at Citizens United and say, "See? The corporate money didn't change anything! Your guy still won!"

I guess you could link to this thread. The easy way is to attach the pics and use a reference within the message to put them inline, but sometimes this makes the message too big. The hard way is coding the html directly into the e-mail message so the pictures download when they open the message. This is easy to do in actual clients like Outlook, but I don't have much luck creating them with Webmail like Yahoo. It tends to disallow the coding, thinking it's part of the web page I'm reading rather than internal to the message I'm writing.

I agree with the poster 20 or so posts up... Dead eyes, decrepit body, possibly trying to atone for a lifetime of evil behaviour by 'saving Israel' now that the end is near. Running casinos isn't exactly charity work to begin with, but adding the sleazy behaviour we (allegedly) know about while assuming it is the tip of the iceberg. Perhaps for someone that old death camps are not the most frightening thing imaginable.

true dat.

Had Jews like him in Germany too. WWI war profiteers, etc.

heh, as always the inveterate racist that accuses the jews of bringing the Holocaust on themselves and the liberals are on the exact same page.


Even if actual Jewish war profiteers didn't exist, they really were used as scapegoats for Holocaust. From an early Nazi document:

"We demand struggle without consideration against those whose activity is injurious to the general interest. Common national criminals, usurers, profiteers and so forth are to be punished with death, without consideration of confession or race.

We demand freedom of religion for all religious denominations within the state so long as they do not endanger its existence or oppose the moral senses of the Germanic race. The Party as such advocates the standpoint of a positive Christianity without binding itself confessionally to any one denomination. It combats the Jewish-materialistic spirit within and around us, and is convinced that a lasting recovery of our nation can only succeed from within on the framework: The good of the state before the good of the individual."

It's kinda like how Iraq's huge arsenal of weapons of mass deduction and Saddam Hussein's personal connection to 9/11 were used as an excuse for the Iraq War.

Now, it's silly to conflate that into "So, you're saying the Iraqi people brought the war on themselves by building all those nuclear missiles and helping with the 9/11 attacks?" just as it's silly to argue that claiming Hitler used Jewish war profiteers as scapegoats is the same as saying they brought it on themselves.

ox45tallboy: What if this is nothing but a sham campaign, during which the Republicans will pour a crap-ton of money into putting up the least-liked candidate, and, once he loses, they'll be able to point at Citizens United and say, "See? The corporate money didn't change anything! Your guy still won!"


That or it's more a "fark the Presidency, let's go for House and Senate and Gov. and state seats" strategy, which seems more likely.

Does anyone even want to know why he lost most of his fortune?

The financial collapse. Wall Street lost confidence in his company and all of his money is tied in Las Vegas Sands stock. You could have had it for like $1 a share.

Then, we began the reversal and the Fed backed corporate lending by trillions of dollars. Bush bailed out the banks, Obama continued and bailed out the unemployed with extended benefits, workers got a 3% tax cut, more tax credits, the auto industry got taken care of.

Adelson's stocked soared back up because we all helped the country regain economic stability.

Now, he will take the money we helped him get back and increase so that we can back Israel.

That is the American way.

F*ck you, sheldon. I hope you get ass cancer. Way to thank us for your rebirth.

Surely the thing people should be objecting to is not that this guy wants to influence the election (and certainly not that he is jewish), but that the biggest single donor working to influence the election is primarily motivated by the interests of a foreign state, rather than what he perceives as the interests of the state where the election is taking place.

That is a whole different ballgame.

First, I find this article and line of questioning completely legitimate. What I do not know and would be interested in knowing if the NYT has done a similar piece on Mr. Soros?

Yes, I get it, in the hyper-partisan world on the right, Mr. Soros is the debil, but it is fair to say he has spent a great deal of money for left leaning causes and candidates.

As on the right, the hyper-partisan left treat the Koch brothers as the debil(s) and now I guess Mr. Aldeman can join their ranks.

Like I said, I think the NYT doing a piece like this is legitimate, provided that it looks at $$$ barons on both the left and the right. Although a conservative Republican, I am not a fan of the Citizen's United decision, but if we are going to apply the light on one side, it needs to be applied to all involved, including those whom are funding causes/candidates we approve of.

In typical American fashion, most of us are blind to the cause of hyper-partisanship and think it's a product of the legislative proceedings in Washington, DC. In reality, the hyper-partisanship is a result of us, both the left and right who are willing to ignore sins committed by people we agree with, but are all too willing to crucify those on the other side who engage in activities that if it benefits "our side" we are all too willing to ignore.

Crucify him? Hell no! Ponder why he's so willing to blow millions on the election process when he'll manage to stay phenomenally rich regardless of who's in charge? Hell yeah!

The guys who say, "Sure, I'm rich, and Democrats want to raise my taxes, but I support them anyway because I believe in other parts of their platform," don't get criticized as much as the guys who say, "I'm rich, Republicans want to cut my taxes, so I'm gonna spend billions to get them elected--even if it means backing the guy I spent $10 million trying to defeat in the primaries."

Please go to Fox News for a complete run-down on how evil George Soros is. MSNBC can tell you all about the Koch brothers. It's been beat into the ground.

Two things: First, Adelson has never been as involved in politics on anything approaching this scale before, nothing like either the Koch's or Soros. He was simply an anonymous guy who gave no more than most rich people. What that means is that this is news. We don't know nearly as much about this guy or his motivations as we do about most others who are making contributions on this scale. Your statement reads like "So, why did ESPN do a story today about a MLB pitcher from my team testing positive for steroids last week, but they didn't mention another pitcher who was busted 5 years ago? Where's the fairness?"

Secondly, The left has Soros, and that's pretty much it. Most filthy rich people only support candidates that will keep them rich; Soros is the exception. There are many on the right with obvious selfish motivations. Demanding that equal coverage be given to billionaire donors on both sides is like demanding FOX Sports give 50% of NASCAR camera time to the cars driven by women. This analogy especially fits here since Danica Patrick already receives far more coverage than her accomplishments would ordinarily suggest.

heh, as always the inveterate racist that accuses the jews of bringing the Holocaust on themselves and the liberals are on the exact same page.

He didn't say that. Don't put words in his mouth.

What he 'did' say was that there were war profiteers in WWI that happened to be Jewish. This is not a lie, nor is it an anti-Semitic statement, it's simple reality.

It's not saying that the Jews brought it upon themselves, but it IS saying that when Hitler said that there were Jew war profiteers, he wasn't lying, he was simply using that as an excuse and scapegoat to murder the entire Jewish population.

yes, krupp was a german jew. maxim was a german jew. mauser was a german jew. rheinmetall was a jew.
wait, none of them weer germans or jews.

and I know exactly what david vincent is saying. he is saying the jews brought the holocaust on themselves. you're a f*cking straight up idiot if you think he is just helpfully pointing out the truth about what brought the holocaust on to the jews.


You are a really bad troll.

Jews are the 3rd rail in American Politics.

As I always say, they are the dominant ethnic minority in America.

They control media, finance and politics.
Soros, Adelson, Bernanke, Blankenfien, Eisner, Redstone.

Many low level American Jews think it is a coincidence. No. it is tribal cohesiveness.

This tribe demonizes cohesiveness for white euro-americans while in is-real anti-immigration riots are supported by the governement. "Israel must remain Jewish."

Do you have a truly open mind?I am only post a video like that because I've been drinking.

Can someone explain this to me, please?

http://www.fark.com/comments/6330209

This is regarding a thread about Iranian nuclear scientists and civilians dying in a plane crash. Tatsuma posted a jumping for joy picture.

Read details in the thread.

Okay, I'll explain it:

Tatsuma is a schmuck.

That fact that he's a Jew is just a coincidence. But, again, he's the one Jew out of a hundred...

Funny, I haven't seen him or his doppelganger on here for quite some time. Wonder what happened.


Hopefully, a scud missile.

That would hurt them far, far more than any physical punishment. And they deserve nothing less.

I mean, you guys are giving me this money in my casinos, and you're pissed that I'm spending it in a way that is financially beneficial to myself? No wonder you believe campaign ads.

First off WTF do war profiteers have to do with this?

You are right when you say it isn't a lie that there were jewish war profiteers, but when you bring that up in a comment about death camps, you are supporting Nazi propaganda. Hitler didn't simply say a few war profiteers were Jewish, that claim was never made in a vaccum, it was used in his propaganda about how the jews were to blame for the loss in WWI.

It is like being in a Treyvon thread and saying that a lot of black peopel commit murder. While technically true in that context you are going to be looked on as a racist who is trying to justify the shooting based on black people being bad.

What does he think Christianity (esp Dominionism) is rooting for?? What does he imagine Christian eschatologists see as the end result for Jews?
