Re: “Editor's Note

Dear "Try Using Google".

Reading past the first few lines of his wikipedia entry one will find that Finkelstein (who Betts has aligned with) does indeed have parents who survived the Holocaust. He talks about them in his book "The Holocaust Industry", which led the Anti-Defamation league called him a "holocaust denier".

The debate in academia and the Jewish community is whether he denied the Holocaust outright, denied aspects of it, trivialized it, or minimized it.

Whether Finkelstein is a Holocaust Denier, or a "Holocaust Minimizer", "Holocaust Revisionist" or "Holocaust Trivializer." as is the position of the ADL, American Jewish Congress, Alan Dershowitz, and the Jewish Virtual Library, which writes:

"Whereas hard-core deniers posit that the Holocaust is fiction...Finkelstein accepts that the mass murders did occur, but then joins the deniers in claims that Jews are collectively abusing this history for evil purposes."


For more defenses of Finkelstein, you can visit David Dukes' website, which contains 10 articles that defend Finkelstein.

David Duke or 100 Jewish Organizations?

Re: “Editor's Note

Give me a break. This trumped up crap about Betts Putnam Hidalgo is not only a complete fabrication, but it also has ZERO to do with TUSD.

She's the most qualified governing board candidate this troubled district has seen in ages.

Enough lies, MJ. We've heard it all before, and it's getting a bit stale.

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

Hey! Let's make a wide spread release of the newest comment What, Again posted on the TW site on facebook to show that the "Make Arizona Mexico again" statement wasn't actually a rally cry for Mexicans. It was actually a mix of sarcasm, racism and vitriol. The "white guilt" and "feminized liberal" stuff is what this troll is truly made of. See things for what they are facebook users. Don't be like or support a fool such as What, Again.

Or pledge your "white guilt" as every good feminized liberal does.

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

I am so glad times are changing. I saw our first African American President and soon our first woman President. It's time to stop voting for racist individuals. I for one am glad minority votes are the deciding factor to the recent elections. I bet all those racist red necks are getting scared. Imagine how it will be when their votes won't even matter since they will be so outnumbered. Arizona will change too. Racist are old and dying out. Former Governor Jan Brewer should be worried. Her and McCain look almost dead anyway.

Re: “Danehy

I think I get it here: irony happens when the Republican "base" is so angry, so shortsighted, so backward, and quite simply so damn dumb that they vote in the primaries for the ONLY person that will most disadvantageously lose to Hillary Clinton. With the possible exception of T Cruz, I think ANY one of the other guys had bona fides enough to win the general election this year. Trump may be rich (on paper), but he is so lacking in integrity that the ball won't bounce his way - ever again.

Re: “Editor's Note

Norman Finkelstein is not a "Holocaust denier," both his parents were Holocaust survivors. That took about 3 seconds of research to find, btw, I've never even heard of this guy before. If that's your lead point, I'm concerned with the credibility of the rest of your post.

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

This is the oddest thread of comments as far as how the likes and dislikes are represented. For the most part, everything is in order with logic; although there are 2 comments that defy that logic.
One of those comments mentions our winter residents; I will not refer to them as "snowbirds" because some of our part time residents really despise that term. I am not here to offend them, everyone should respect their elders. I am not sure of the reason why the dislikes currently triple the likes on this one, all I can guess about that is maybe most people feel that they are the reason as to why the asshats seems to dominate the government in this state. Who really knows? I sure don't.
The other like/dislike ratio that REALLY blows my mind is one that belongs to the comment which has probably been repeated several hundred times by the ugliest troll that currently stains the comment section on the TW site. Of course, I am referring to the most infamous troll Wrong, Again. Unlike our winter visitors which are worthy of our respect, this slimy troll isn't worthy of the chewing gum that connects the bottom of your shoe to the hot summer sidewalk. How does this comment currently hold 50 (last I checked) likes on a thread where everything else actually seems to be in a logical space?
The universe must definitely be out of alignment. That's just crazy! The only logical explanation for this is that Wrong, Again sent messages to all his Triple K brothers across the country and they checked in to give him the upticks which he is so undeserving of. If these guys have one thing going for them, it is that they do stick together; just as the gum I mentioned in the last paragraph. Believe me when I say that nobody really wants to be involved in either one of these sticky situations.

"Well, that was incoherent. At least What, Again keeps his ignorance short and bitter."

Hey Peabo, you forgot to include stale and unoriginal.

I like him better when he's following his doctors orders.

Socialism is a deterrent for them so why would they vote for her? Are they really that blind?

Re: “Hell Yes! The 2016 Tucson Weekly Endorsements

I'm not voting for either of the 2 candidates shoved down our throats by the media for President, there are other choices. All other info I've gathered here I'll research myself with my perspective a little more attuned. Thanks for the 411. God Bless America... That's the only change that will work anymore.

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

So are "snowbirds" "permanent residents"? If so are they voting by absentee in their home state and voting in Az? Because that would be voter fraud wouldn't it?
Just saying

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

Comparing Jan Brewer to a Neanderthal is insulting to Neanderthals, especially since the latest anthropological studies indicate they had bigger brains than modern man. As for Jan's age being indicative of her intelligence or relevance in the 21st Century, ignorance has no age restrictions. Of course, those of us who have seen more than a couple presidential elections have a better perspective on just how screwed up the 2016 race has become.

Nevertheless, thanks to that smaller brain size of "modern" man and a severe lack of critical thinking skills we may be seeing the next step in human evolution when a certain segment of the electorate - you know how you are - execute a full cranial rectal insertion inside the voting booth and choose a blond hair piece-wearing, knuckle-dragging, orangutan's uncle for president - with apologies to orangutans everywhere.

Ahora vas a ver, bruja! I've voted in every election since I was 18 and my parents followed me as soon as their citizenship was completed. You are so wrong, and we will prove it.
