Hitler Makes A Comeback, Thanks To GOP
We cats have no doubt that the Freepers and their fellow delusional right wingers are convinced that the anti-Semitic valentine foisted on the College Republicans at Central Michigan University was a plant to make them look bad.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's just say: NOT.
Why are we so sure? Because the Republican Party has already made it abundantly clear that it welcomes anti-Semites in its midst.
Heck, one of the most prominent Jew-dislikers in the country is sitting in the Oval Office right now with The New Worst Person Who's Ever Lived. What more proof do you need — aside from the fact that David Duke is a proud member of the GOP who has bragged that the appointments of Steve Bannon, Jeff Sessions and Michael Flynn are "great first steps" to "taking America back"?
Can we just get it on the record right now? The Democratic Party does not welcome people like this. Nor have we welcomed, or been welcomed by, the Ku Klux Klan for 50 years. (Ted Cruz, are you listening? There will be a quiz on this.) The Democratic Party believes that our country's diversity is its strength. And as for us, we cats always welcome new groups to America, because — gosh! — maybe they'll bring some really good food with them.
Additional point: The right-wing nutcases, who claim to love Israel, only love Israel because they believe its destiny will bring the Rapture. That, in our view, is not "pro-Israel." It is "anti-world." In the best Lenny Dykstra tradition, we cats call bullshit on that.
Bottom line: Do we really need to say, in 2017, that anti-Semitism is unacceptable? How many times do we need to fight these battles? And how many people have to die before the question is settled? We cats are disgusted, and we HISS.
