Where's our Cayman Islander reminding us how Hillary was going to lead us into WWIII. It's all gone very quiet over there.

I'd hazard a guess at about 40 years ago.

A lot of the folks who call themselves Christians and adhere to Old Testament beliefs have, like the Scribes and Pharisees, totally missed the point and chosen to ignore the teachings of Christ.
The major example, 'Love thy neighbour as thyself' summarises perfectly how we should treat each other, at no time was Christ heard to utter 'Love thy neighbour, except for all non-whites and LGBTQXYZetc's, as thyself'.

...And 'turning the other cheek' is not a subtle reference to settling one's cheek into a nice comfy stock, taking aim and popping off those very same 'neighbours'!

I struggle every single day to reconcile the teachings of my saviour with trying to 'love' a narcissistic arsehole....

Old Testament Evangelicals both nauseate me and scare me.

I think the point is that evangelicals supported Trump who, in turn, enabled the white supremacists.

I saw a bumper sticker on a car yesterday "I Stand With Israel". My first thought was that it probably belonged to a Trump supporter. WHICH MAKES NO SENSE.

Ivanka did tweet more vociferously than her father but, then again, these people do want to burn her children in ovens.

If he had a resource like the Night Wolves in Russia he wouldn't have to depend on the garden variety militias like Take America Back or any Klan or Nazi groups that he can't control to provide distractions from whatever his latest error is. They'd be out there patrolling Muslim neighbourhoods and eradicating Mexican gangs just like he promised.

Yes, I keep wondering where he is. It all sounded so promising back in the day - remember this, for example?

Bang on target, and becoming more and more evident every day -- especially with the incredibly careful wording of his wimpy reaction to Charlottesville. He has lost all the "anyone but . . . " voters, and can't afford to lose the rabble who put him in power, because without them, he won't get to play at being president any longer.

The Nuremberg Laws were based on the US race laws in part according to some historians. So it's come full circle.
