Re: “Yarmulkes, Money and Labels: Trump's Antisemitism and Racism

David Safier wrote: "and, to the extent he's capable of affection, it's possible he may actually love his grandchildren"

What a nasty piece of work.

"If he has made the same comment about any other racial, ethnic or religious group, I don't remember hearing it."

Um, in his own article he quoted President Trump as calling Jews stupid:

Quoting President Trump: "Stupidly, you want to give money... But you're not going to support me because I don't want your money."

Then President Trump's racism demonstrated by calling a few people dumb.

"Apparently he can't do that with African Americans. According to Trump, Rep. Maxine Waters is "low I.Q." Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman is "not smart." CNN's Don Lemon is "the dumbest man on television." How dumb is Lemon? According to a Trump tweet, Lemon "made LeBron look smart, which isn't easy to do.""

First, Maxine Waters. She is the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman and she was unaware that the U.S. government nationalized the student loan program in 2010 under President Obama.…

I am not sure that calling Maxine Waters stupid is racist or more just a statement of fact. I mean I have rocks in my backyard that are smarter than Maxine Waters.

If David Safier's assertion is true that President Trump calling someone stupid is based upon his hatred for their race, then President Trump really hates white people.…

Over 90% of the time he is calling white people stupid and the vast majority of those are white males, so President Trump must really really hate white males. Maybe he is a self-loathing white male.

Did David Safier purposefully ignore and leave out all the other times President Trump called white people stupid in order to prove his point, or does he really not know about those other instances? If it is the former, then David Safier is a liar. If it is the latter then, well..... David Safier is stupid.

Thank you Noah. The media has become expert of exactly that type of reporting. I only wish they could be honest and answer the question, why?

And your original comment was NOT an attack on someone you disagreed with?

Typical tRumpie Sheep fanboy response. Let's project the negative actions in which I engage upon others.

Look in the mirror go2ski. Learn who you truly are.

P.S. - I did have a good day. Thanks for your concern.

Re: “Border Skirmishes

"The event followed a tense three weeks on campus, after a March 19 incident that resulted in three students being charged with misdemeanor crimes.
Border Patrol agents were on campus that day in the Modern Languages building as guests of an event hosted by the Criminal Justice Association, a university club. There was no previous school-wide announcement that BP agents would be present on campus.
Student activists protested and confronted the BP agents' unexpected presence. A video that captured the exchange was posted online and went viral. As a result, the students involved in the protest received an overwhelming amount of personal threats online."

This is extremely misleading! Why state that there was "no announcement the Border Patrol would be on campus"? They were invited to speak, they weren't there to arrest anyone. And if you're DACA then there is no reason to be can't be arrested by BP.
It's also very dishonest for you to state that "A video that captured the exchange was posted online and went viral. As a result, the students involved in the protest received an overwhelming amount of personal threats online."
Denisse Melchor and her cohorts HARASSED and verbally assaulted BP agents. They also interfered with other students rights by disrupting classes and causing such a raucous that classes had to be dismissed.
If you're going to report...tell the whole story. Don't cherry pick. My daughter is a student at the University of Arizona that doesn't happen to agree with your take. And our family is of Mexican and Spanish decent.

You have hit the nail on the head Mike. If democrats can't pull the hard left back towards Mao, we will lose the party.

Using State procurement laws to stiffle ANY kind of private free speech by any private contractor,just wont stand up. This is yet another "me too" law forced on them by their masters, who are not the citizens of Arizona.

Re: “Italian Style

DaVinci's was my family's go-to place for a special family dinner out on the town.

A few other places from the 70s-80s that carry strong nostalgia include Greco's at Park & 6th (amazing Greek food--best ever), the Pizza Pub along 6th near campus (still my favorite ever pizza 40 years later), the original Gordo's at Broadway & Kolb (cheap, tasty buffet & the $1.99 chimi special), the Solarium (beautiful interior/architecture and quality food), and the Hidden Valley Inn (teriyaki steak & free meal on your birthday). I also miss Broadway Cafe (Broadway & Columbus) for 24-hour eats in a 50s atmosphere, Sambo's (racist logo but a fun diner), and quite a few others. Too many chains in Tucson now. It's worth seeking out and supporting the local joints.

Re: “Danehy

Well, the one sure way that Dumbocrats could blow this election would be to repeat the same stupid strategy they employed to blow the last election: namely, to run an even-more-tired-stale-old-retread-loser-than-Hillary named "Joe Biden".

Biden--whatever you may think of his creepy-handsy-habits and his apparent belief that it's his divine right as an Old White Guy to aggressively invade the personal space of women and girls whenever and wherever he pleases--is a quintessential, perfectly distilled, blazingly clear representation of everything that's wrong with the corrupt corporate Democratic party leadership.

Creepy Joe hails from the Great Corporate State of Delaware, so of course he believes that "500 billionaires are not the problem." He's never met a profit margin he didn't like, and he's repeatedly, for decades, prioritized those profits over the people he's supposed to represent.

Creepy Joe made common cause with Republicans to enthusiastically push through an incredibly toxic and racist criminal justice "reform" that ended up eviscerating an entire generation of African American youth and their communities.

Creepy Joe presided over the public shredding of Anita Hill and the elevation of a profoundly unqualified candidate to the U.S. Supreme Court. He was the CHAIR of that committee, yet he has the revisionist gall to pretend that there was nothing he could do to stop it. This is not only morally reprehensible from the perspective of gender politics, it paved the way for a whole parade of other zealous ideologues to ascend to the Supreme Court, leading right up to and including serial abuser Brett Kavanaugh.

Creepy Joe was a big cheerleader for the vast criminal exercise known as the Iraq War that was founded in bald-faced, demonstrable lies, had nothing to do with 9/11, and resulted in hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths. A fair amount of responsibility for the war crimes of the Bush-Cheney mafia can be laid at the feet of witless Dumbocrats like Biden who gave them the blank check they needed to commit them.

I could go on, but I would suggest that all Dems read the recent roundup of Joe's toxic career in Harper's Magazine before deciding that he's the savior-grampa they really need.

Alas, polls indicate that Joe is running out in front of the D pack, even though he has yet to declare his candidacy. Polls this early in a presidential race mean precious little in terms of who is actually going to win, but these numbers do indicate one thing very clearly--far too many Dumbocrats are in denial about the true lessons of the 2016 election and seem to be intent on repeating its mistakes and facilitating the reelection of the very troglodyte they are so obsessed with defeating.

In what fantasy world is supporting a wildly popular initiative like Medicare-for-All, which is consistently polling with 70 percent support, a hindrance to a campaign? The ONLY reason Dems hesitate to support such a proposal is that the party leadership is actively pressuring them to resist it and undermining those candidates who don't. Why? because they are beholden to the behemoth corporations who profit handsomely from our current criminally corrupt, incredibly inefficient health care system at the expense of sick people.

If this country is really going to change for the better and be the more humane, rational, equitable society that so many Ds claim to want, then the Ds must get busy crushing the power structure that is stifling progressive elements of their own party and platform. And they must start NOW, in this Democratic primary, if they want to have any hope of unseating Tchump in 2020.

Re: “Yarmulkes, Money and Labels: Trump's Antisemitism and Racism

Sorry to disappoint you there, AZ/DC, but I did read the entire article. I normally don't agree with Mr Safier's columns but he does sometimes offer interesting view points. As usual and as evidenced by your comments here, your only recourse is to attack those you disagree with.

I hope you have a good day.
