Neo nazi trump supporters at work.

This crazy guy Robert Bowers that shot all of those people at the temple, apparently did not vote for, like, or support President Donald Trump.

I saw screenshots of his social media page where Robert Bowers wrote this himself.

Neo-Nazis-even the ones in European countries and the ones in North America in the United States and Canada, who are all in extreme minorities and only a tiny fraction of a percentage of the population even of small European countries, do not like Donald Trump because he likes Jews, completely supports Israel, has Jewish family members, and they feel he is too far left or a leftist/globalist.

Also, neo-nazis have always been around ever since the end of WW II, and are not some new phenomenon or coming out of the woodwork or having people join them-even in European countries or in North America.

I first saw evidence and actual neo-nazis in different European countries, and regions of Europe, and the United States and Canada in the late 1990s and very early 2000s during the Clinton years.

That's the opinion of two people who are going off because they want media attention. T

These idiots do not represent all or most Americans or most people in Pennsylvania-even people who live in upstate PA near the NY border, and who are in Central Pennsylvania in and around Harrisburg. I do not like what they are saying and I do not agree with their hatred or support their bigotry at all but we have freedom of speech in the United States, and the people in the youtube video links you posted akin to the crazy, actually racist, and bigoted violent and hate filled people in far left groups like Antifa and black lives matter.

FYI, I am neither a con or lib and did not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary; but to me it is very silly how people falsely compare Trump to Hitler or claim he's "racist" or "Anti-Semitic", which actually just downplays actual racism, bigotry, and hatred.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2018/10/29/donald-trump-robert-bower s-racist-anti-semitic-synagogue-shooting-column/1800755002/

Accused Pittsburgh synagogue killer Robert Bowers is a raving anti-Semitic white nationalist who also despises President Donald Trump. This might sound confusing to people who bought into the tiresome “Trump is Hitler” media narrative, but it makes perfect sense.

But actual Nazis disagree. Bowers was explicit in his dislike of the president, saying he did not vote for him and had never “owned, worn or even touched" a Make America Great Again hat. Challenging the news media narrative that President Trump praised Nazi demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, Bowers agreed with another extremist that the president had “betrayed” right-wing radical protesters by “comparing them with a violent mob.”

When Trump said he was a “nationalist” at a Texas rally last week, the left exploded with the usual Hitler-this and dog-whistle-that criticisms. Bowers made clear that from the extremist point of view, the president is not a nationalist but a “globalist” controlled by a Jewish conspiracy.

Trump isn't anti-Semitic, and it's wrong to say so
Linking Trump to anti-Semitism is factually incorrect and morally wrong. You never heard it before he ran for office. He has a history of giving generously to Jewish charities, including the Anti-Defamation League, and he received the Jewish National Fund’s “Tree of Life” award.

This is a president whose high-profile daughter Ivanka is an observant modern Orthodox Jew and whose Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is a trusted White House envoy and personal adviser. President Trump also has longstanding ties to Israel’s conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and, unlike three of his Oval Office predecessors, made good on a pledge to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

And while Trump did not garner support from the broad Jewish community in the 2016 election, he was overwhelmingly popular among more the observant Orthodox segment, whom one community activist compared to working-class “Rust Belt voters.”

Critics resort to the tired “dog whistle” trope to lump President Trump in with white nationalists because they lack actual evidence. But real extremists don’t hide their biases. You don’t need to use a secret decoder ring to understand the blatantly anti-Semitic message when Louis Farrakhan says Jews are “termites” and talks about “Satanic Jews who have infected the whole world with poison and deceit.” White supremacists praised Farrakhan for being “on point” with this message, showing the noxious nexus at which these conflicting racist ideologies agree.

Synagogue shooting shows what evil looks like
Political theorist Hannah Arendt noted in “The Origins of Totalitarianism” that extremist propaganda “is invariably as frank as it is mendacious,” and that “would-be totalitarian regimes usually start their careers by boasting of their past crimes and carefully outlining their future ones.” They believe in “the propaganda value of evil deeds,” as the tragedy in Pittsburgh and any other such acts of terrorism illustrate.

Mainstream critics who convert normal policy disagreements into mud-slinging contests over extremism, suggest apocalyptic consequences from pursuing any course of action they happen to disagree with, or hear hidden menacing messages in routine rhetoric, are making rational discourse in America impossible.

The synagogue shooting shows what real evil looks like. It is not hidden, it is not a subterfuge, it can be found openly expressed in chat rooms and online publications that cater to that wretched mob's mentality.

Mainstream Americans — whether leaning left, right or in the center — can and should denounce these radical views. But to the extent our political debate increasingly mimics the extremist tone of the fanatic fringes, we are the worse for it.

I find it so ironic that whenever their is a mass shooting the right screams that it is a mental health issue and not a gun issue, yet one of the first things that the GOP and Trump did after Trump took office was to pass a law making it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns.


Never happened, and you know it since we discussed this previously and you were proven wrong.

Plus, this is really the wrong place to push pro/anti gun feelings.

I feel for the victims and blame the killer.

Let's see Switzerland has 8.7 million people and the USA has roughly 325 million......Factor in education, history, health and now tell me that was a relevant comparison.
So you believe because there are a lot less people there, their approach means nothing?, I don't think so. They don't allow the ment ally ill to access firearms, or those who are wife beating pieces of sh!t and have violent tendencies, no guns for you. I'm sure no matter what the population is there, the result would be the same.


Fact: In the US, people who have been adjudged mentally ill are banned from purchasing firearms.
Fact: People in the US who have had a separation order for domestic violence (not even a conviction)
are banned from purchasing firearms.
Fact: Criminals are also banned from even being close to firearms, but, since they don't follow laws,
they not only get close, but use them to commit more crimes. More laws don't affect criminals,
but do affect law abiding people. More laws help the criminal.

Fact - The ban on mentally ill people buying guns is only as good as the database. One of the first things Trump and the GOP congress did was to recind a law where the social security administration would be required to provide names of those receiving benefits for mental illness to the database.

But since the terrorist in Pittsburgh never saw a doctor, he purchased a gun and killed a dozen people. Therefore, mentally ill people CAN and DO buy guns.

Some probably do, sure.

Possibly. But we will never know, because conservatives believe that more laws victimize them and their 2nd amendment right.

Regarding Trump, I think it’s silly to suggest that Trump committed any type of crime with his inflammatory rhetoric. But I don’t see that as the point. The point is whether a President should be escalating tensions and intentionally trying to divide. And that answer is obvious.

If someone really wants to get a gun in Switzerland, or in any other European country, they easily can on the black market there or in any number of nearby European countries.

https://www.thelocal.ch/20180614/swiss-police-logistics-chief-suspected-of- illegal-arms-sales

In comparison to other European countries, Switzerland has a high rate of death from guns.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-related_death_ra te

Also, while many people think that various European countries must be very liberal/leftist because they have decriminalized/legalized prostitution and decriminalized/legalized/socially tolerated soft drugs like hash and weed, and Psilocybin mushrooms, the governments and people of these countries are actually rather conservative politically and socially.

Neo-Nazi and extremely far right nationalist-neo-fascist political groups, and social attitudes are also very popular in Switzerland, and gaining popularity especially among younger people, and older people as well in many other European countries. However, this should not be a surprise to anyone as it's been this way for decades. No this does not mean that most people in these countries are neo-nazis, support neo-nazi groups, etc. It's like here in the United States where there's a very tiny percentage of the population that consists of neo-nazis.

So when you listen to & observe Trump, would you classify him more a president who unites or divides?

I think he "unites" the people who believe in him and those who revile him will not be moved, thus, a Stalemate with both sides equally to blame.

By singling out immigrants, ethnic groups, the press, Democrats and others, he is making no attempt to unify the country. You are either on the Trump Train or you are the enemy. There is no grey area. There is not a single politician on the left who acts like that.

I agree and just real sorry to see this even coming up in conversation in the 21st century. Disturbing that you even got to where you had to consider it. Sure, nothing new it is a chronic social undercurrent, standard ignorance bilge in the hold of history - really just sucks that it is getting revived rather than continuing to fade. These ideas are baggage from the middle ages.

Actually when I asked the original question, I was expecting a one word answer - "uniter" or "divider". It's that basic & doesn't need a qualifier.

I think it does because of the polarizing effects of his being Elected. For example, Mr. Keller mentioned immigration. I would ask but feel like assuming here will be just as effective.

"Do we need immigration reform (Left) or immigration enforcement(Right)"?

Which route satisfies both the Left and the Right?

Not easy is it?...Both sides are looking to the other to give ground. I repeat, stalemate and that is just one issue.

Congress worked on a bilateral immigration law, but Trump said he would not sign it as written. An attempt to come up with a law that would meet Trump's approval failed in the House.

So, the left and the right had an agreement, but the "unifier" president rejected it. Adding that to the other things I mentioned makes my point. Trump is divisive and he uses it as a weapon.
