Traitor

The Republican Party has yet again shown its true colors. I’m saddened by and disgusted with those republicans who voted to acquit trump. The man is guilty, he is a traitor to this country.

doesn’t need anything as picayune as evidence. Doctored videos, words and phrases taken completely out of context, are enough.

Well, fortunately the New Soviet Man hasn’t upped his game yet enough to actually make that happen in this country.

This is another gut wrenching let down, but we have to believe that democracy will outlive and overrun the fascist Republicans. We have to vote out all of those traitors. We have to march, protest, stand up, speak out, and vote!!

So when sitting congresspeople call for violence against Trump supporters, crickets. When a Bernie Sanders supporter shoots a Republican congressman and wounds him, no problem. When a vice-presidential nominee bails out people who are burning down businesses, that’s just fine. But telling people to protest peacefully is “fascism.” Got it.

The events of January 6th were horrifying and heartbreaking, acquitting the man responsible for that terrorist attack is a sham.

The Nazis didn’t initially gun down their opponents, plant the swastika in front of the capitol, and immediately declare themselves the new superpower of Germany. They slowly but surely worked their way into government, using legalities, loopholes and fear to gain control. Sound familiar?

Here we go again with the Nazi comparison, it is shameful that other frum yidden are busy comparing politics in America in 2020 and 2021 to Nazis! I am really ashamed of being a proud member of The Havana community after seeing this.

Shame on you!

I can assure you those comments are not being made by Frum yidden but trolls working hard to push an agenda. If they were frum yidden they would care about antisemitism. They would care about violence against our community by blm.

But it’s always nice seeing how inclusive Lubavitchers are, thanks for the reminder.

What they did do, though, is to send their brownshirts to attack people in the streets. They shattered the windows of houses and businesses. They called for boycotts against Jews. All things that we nowadays find the Democrat party and its minions doing.

They protest Trump's lawyer
February 14, 2021 12:50 am

But they worship the lawyer’s of Islamic terrorists.

However bad Trump has been, there are democrats who have done much more to instigate the BLM attacks that have caused billions in damages to NY and much of this country over the last year. Not to mention the numerous Shuls and Jewish businesses BLM have targeted. No one is calling to hold Ilhan Omar and Tlaib accountable. What’s worse, the Democrats even support them!

You can’t be against antisemitism while supporting Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib’s rabid antisemitism.

I watched a decent amount of the proceedings live. The evidence against Trump was thoroughly and clearly presented. Trump’s lawyers didn’t even defend him for the incitement itself. They tried to poke holes on the technical aspects of the trial and many GOP senators cited the same when they voted to acquit. It is telling that seven GOP senators joined the Democrats and voted to convict.
I have lost faith in the impeachment process in general. If this was not a high crime and misdemeanor, a president can get away with really anything at this point.

I recall President Trump saying: I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard today.

If people were convicted with your kind of evidence, where would the USA be today?
You may not like him, but here in the US that is not reason enough to convict him.
Besides, I think that most people in the US believe in the Constitution, which doesn’t allow for convicting someone of an impeachable offense after they have left office.

"Evidence"

If your standard of “evidence” is doctored videos, then yeah, those were thoroughly and clearly presented. But, you know, lies don’t become better lies just because they’re presented nicely, otherwise Goebbels would be a great hero. It’s also rather odd that you’ve never had problems with Democrat politicians inciting violence (“if they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun,” “get in their faces,” calling for their assassination, etc.), nor with previous times that protestors have gotten into the Capitol (2018, Kavanaugh, remember?) Or, for that matter, with them dismissing those burning down businesses as “mostly peaceful” and… Read more »

His defense proved the incitement claim was false by showing that every democrat in the senate had used exactly the same language as trump and called for a ‘fight’.

Wow! You people are the real evidence that the media brainwashed so many people! So sad!

Nazis???
February 14, 2021 10:23 am

Lots of commenters here saying that trump=nazis? What? Do you understand the gravity of what you are saying? I am not denying the fact that there WERE nazis at the Capitol Hill riot, but that does not equal 75 million trump voters and the his cabinet! There are crazies at the fringes of every political movement -that’s why I don’t see all dems as socialist antifa glorifying commies. As well, I don’t believe there was enough evidence to convict Trump. The video evidence that the prosecution submitted “brilliantly” left out the part where Trump said “let us march peacefully and… Read more »

Trump=nazis?!?!!? Do u know what ur even saying
February 14, 2021 1:16 pm

How can u compare trump to people who just slaughtered millions of people for the fun of it? Even if you don’t like everything he did, he definitely wasn’t hungry for blood. And besides, every Jew should have voted for Trump just for the fact to save Israel. Trump was super pro Israel and did everything for their benefit. He is not guilty!!! He was an amazing president who put his whole heart and soul into our country! The democrats already stole this election, by voting to impeach Trump you are allowing them to do so and take unlimited control.… Read more »

BLM are the real Nazis
February 14, 2021 9:32 pm

Nazis boycotted Jews so does BLM. Nazis vandalized and destroyed synagogues, so does BLM. Nazis called for the murder of Jews, so did BLM.
