Steve,

Please - you could have told me I'd want to take a shower after listening to Duke, and scrub myself with carbolic soap.

I'd have made arrangements.

Banks and the Media. If only we still had a communist party he would be on about Jews controlling that as well. Some swine never seem to die.

Some of my best friends are: FILL IN THE BLANK. This is one of the few times I would support the Second Amendment and the Judicial activism displayed in Heller.

Captain Hruska Carswell, Continuance King

He does have good hair, however.

From Wiki, not perfectly reliable, but likely very close:

"On June 9, 2009, in an interview with the Daily Press of Newport News, Wright indicated that he hadn't had contact with Obama up to that point because "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office." Wright also suggested that Obama did not send a delegation to the Durban Review Conference in Geneva on racism because of Zionist pressure saying: "[T]he Jewish vote, the A-I-P-A-C vote, that's controlling him, that would not let him send representation to the Durban Review Conference, that's talking this craziness on this trip, cause they’re Zionists, they would not let him talk to someone who calls a spade what it is."[33] Writing for The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates characterized Wright's remarks as "crude conspiratorial antisemitism."[34] On June 11, 2009, Wright amended his remarks during an interview with Mark Thompson on his radio program, Make it Plain. "Let me say like Hillary, I misspoke. Let me just say: Zionists... I’m not talking about all Jews, all people of the Jewish faith, I’m talking about Zionists."

Sweet home Chicago.

I must give him some credit: How did he get this far? He is on the main stage of a debate for the Senate seat. He is a player, like it or not. 2. He is correct about the Neo-Cons. They began as a "conservative" movement at the University of Chicago and had some Jewish founders. One of them was Paul Wolfowitz, one of the architects of the Iraq war.

You delete comments that are relevant and well within the bounds of civility.

You allow the rankings by a person who is deliberately undermining this site with irrelevant and often offensive, bigoted comments, like the one above.

You, sir, are responsible, and your odd, unfair comment deletion policy simply underscores your lack of objectivity, fairness and good judgment. A typical partisan, in every sense.

Huh? I think you meant to say "rantings?" What you are doing is arguing with the data, a classic error of logic. Nobody on this site or comments drew any conclusions from the facts. Duke did speak of neocons and their influence. It is a fact that the neocons favored war with Iraq and the removal of Saddam Hussein. Paul Wolfowitz and Bemmer influenced Bush and advocated preemptive wars to promote democracy. It was called the Bush doctrine.

Good grief, look at the latest and final Trumo ad released on the internet and tell me that it is not making, only a little more slickly, the same anti Semitic arguments that Duke did st this debate - I'm not including a link because the filter would block it, but it's easy to find.

Should have bought that carbolic soap.

To make clear. To infer that the religion of a politician, on the basis of correlation, caused that person's to adopt a public policy in an undesirable way is the sine quo non of a bigot's approach.

"Neo-Cons. They began as a "conservative" movement at the University of Chicago and had some Jewish founders. One of them was Paul Wolfowitz, one of the architects of the Iraq war."

Again, you have deleted comments that are relevant and well within the bounds of civility.

Yet, you allow the rants by a person who is deliberately undermining this site with irrelevant and often offensive, bigoted comments, like the quoted one above.

You, sir, are responsible, and your odd, unfair comment deletion policy simply underscores your lack of objectivity, fairness and good judgment. A typical partisan, in every sense.

YOu condemn behavior in one instance, while tolerating it in another. You remove comments that expose your partisan irrationality, but permit comments that epitomize what you purportedly condemn.

Again, thus is the way of a partisan, hide bound by ideology and thus condemned to hypocrisy at every turn.

I am sorry. I did make a mistake. I misspelled Bremer. Some of the Neocons at the U of C, where the movement began, were Jewish. No one suggested that their religion informed their views or that it was a negative. Even if it did, was that such a bad thing? Kim Davis was proud to say her Christianity influenced her choices. Other Christians do it all the time. Hobby Lobby and Chik-Fil-A are good examples. Remember Terry Schiavo? They were not ashamed to be loud and proud. The original neocon movement was a reaction to the perceived foreign policy weakness of the Carter Administration. The neocons desired and advocated the US to enforce "in your face" democratic reforms around the world. For instance, allowing women to drive and stopping the torture of Homosexuals in certain nations. That the Iraq War and occupation turned into a fiasco is irrelevant the history of the neocon movement.
