    According to the Herald, the person that killed all those people in a synagogue was a Trump hater. That seems a step up from the nutter who mailed the pipe bombs. I wonder how the press will spin the shootings into Trump’s fault.

        Then what was the connection between Trump and the pipe bombs that the papers made such a fuss over? The media created the divisions. Now it will be seen how even handed they are on the reporting of violence, no matter how tangential the links.

    The New York Times makes no mention that the shooter was anti-Trump but quotes his other messages.

    I think Jews are waking up to the fact a second holocaust is getting underway. This time around though Jews have few places to escape to. Europe is becoming a no-go zone. America has the Neo Nazis. Britain has Jeremy Corbyn. The Middle East has Muslims.
    And as Ian Wishart showed, New Zealand as a rabid hard Left group who support Islam over Jews and Christianity.

    Talking of Corbyn…sometimes it better to say nothing.

      It’s almost comical to see Corbyn make such a statement. The company he keeps tells you exactly what he thinks about Jews, and the use of terror and violence against them.

      Everyone has free will. Trump is blameless, as are all demagogues. The sooner society understands the buck stops with individual action, the better. The rest is free speech. Oh, that’s right, we aren’t allowed free speech. Trump is guilty then!

        We hear a lot about free speech but little about the responsibility to use that right judiciously. The people most insistant in demanding the right of free speech seem the least inclined to exercise the responsibility judiciously.

          That’s what you aren’t getting, Patzcuaro. You either have free speech, or you don’t.
          Any limits, boundaries or moral considerations should not be part of free speech.
          If such limits on free speech are considered nessary, then we don’t have free speech.

          At the moment no one has free speech as far as I know.

      I didn’t see the word “Deplorables” in that cartoon. Now that’s funny!

      Why would a native American be a white nationalist?

    Yep. Trump will always double down, confident that in the next 24-48 news cycle there will be something else to scream about.

    It’s rather like how Trump twisted “fake news” to apply to his opponents when it was actually created by them to attack him. “Globalists” was a perfectly acceptable word when used by the likes of Clinton, Blair, Bush and others. A point of pride in fact – in contrast to those small-minded provincials in scattered parts of the world who still believed in their nation as opposed to the likes of the EU, UN, and so forth.

    Soros still looks down on nationality. He probably should have be locked up for his role in the French insider trading scandal, instead of the pathetic €940,000 fine he got. And of course his opinion of the nation state as a concept was confirmed when he famously shorted the British Pound and made $1 billion, something that Lefties supposedly are appalled by – when it’s John Key. Cost the British taxpayer billions. Unlike Key, Soros has purchased redemption by donating billions to “progressive” causes.

    But back to violence and rhetoric. Compare and contrast the coverage given by blogs and the MSM to the following rhetoric from Democrats:

    Maxine Waters …https://youtu.be/aY5o1HvAN_k

    Nancy Pelosi…https://youtu.be/3fsG5tyxRjw

    Eric Holder… https://youtu.be/u_9YD4M4Juk

    Still, according to Hillary Clinton, civility will be restored to the USA once the Democrats take back the House and Senate, so yay I guess.

    Here in little ole’ NZ, I’ve heard none of this on RNZ, although the Clinton comments may have popped up somewhere there, and I can’t speak for the abysmal One News and Three News since I’ve not watched them in a decade.

    And of course the coverage of the delivery of ricin to Senator Susan Collins, Trump and the Pentagon was treated as a one-day story. Nothing approaching this – because the targets were right-wingers.

    Google “ricen sent to”: 865,000 results after almost a month.
    Google “pipe bombs sent to”: 396,000,000 results in less than a week.

    Same old, same old with Left wing activists, politicians, academics and journalists: Rules-for-thee-but-not-for-me.

    Still, the Democrat approach might work this time: “Vote for us, or at least don’t vote for Trump and the GOP lest you be tainted by them ………… you deplorable pieces of racist, Islamaphobic, transphobic, White Trash shit 🙂

      Nonsense, Griff. We are just setting the record straight. We wouldn’t want you liberal troglodytes to think you have a free rein to bash poor old Trumpy.

      That’s very funny, but was the general populace asked whether they wanted the open borders/global agenda? I think not, it has been implemented by stealth and lies. Don’t forget about the photo of that little drowned Turkish boy, beamed around the world in 2015 – that opened the gates in Europe – I’d be very interested to know how this has improved lives and conditions in either the source or host countries. Enclaves of Muslims who don’t want to assimilate with the citizens of the host country, demanding this and demanding that.
      I support migration policies that target skill sets desirable in the host country – in numbers that don’t adversely impact the standards and conditions in the host.

    horrific scenes last night as the helicopter belonging to the owner of Leicester City Premier League team crashes into a carpark and bursts into a fireball.

    The owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was reportedly on board, though the identities of those on board have not been officially confirmed as yet. There has been no official statement about the casualties however it is feared there were no survivors.
