As a Middle Aged Nominal Jew. . .

My grandfather was a German Jew who left Germany in 1906 as a teenager and left behind his mentally disabled sister and parents. It was years and years before any of us knew what happened to my great grandmother and great aunt, as my great grandfather died before the war. . . My grandfather NEVER, NEVER talked about his mother or sister, and I'm not 100% certain he knew all the details of what happened to them. I digress. . .

I have never experienced any kind of anti-semitism I have been aware of, and we attended a reform synagogue in a small farming community in the South. The synagogue has since closed its doors as any young Jews had no opportunities there, and the congregation grew too small to maintain a synagogue.

My parents attend temple in a larger city that isn't too far from their home. They are not particularly observant and never have been, but with age, it seems like they are searching for some kind of connection. For the first time in my life, my mother said she feels afraid to attend synagogue. . . . THAT shocks me beyond belief. My mother isn't afraid of anything. I think she is more fearful for my father and for her friends than she is for herself.

I am BOILING with anger at these neanderthals. . . And it's not just Jews they don't like oh no. . . I loathe them for so many reasons, but primarily for their bullying and intimidation tactics. The KKK, seriously? In 2018? What in the FUCK is happening to our country?

ON edit-- I never had such a filthy mouth until tRump was foisted on us. . . .

How fucking HUMILIATING.

We actually come from a country in which there are MILLIONS of people who think Pussy Grabber is a good president??? How in the FUCK can ANYBODY believe that?

I just watched the mortifying spectacle with Kanye West. . . . Goddamnit to hell. . . Fucking shameful.

They are ALL guilty of treason.

First of all, let me state that I am AGAINST the death penalty and am in no way advocating it. Nonetheless, we ALL know what the penalty for treason is, and I truly, honestly, and completely believe that Bitch (Turtle) McConnell and his repig colleagues in the Senate and the House are guilty of treason. . . Now I'm not saying that I WISH for them to be executed, because as I previously stated, I am AGAINST the death penalty. But I am saying they DESERVE it. If this were another certain country, gallows would be erected behind the capitol, and these goddamned repigs would be summarily hanged. The entire Republican party could be banned for all I would care. Of course I am being hyperbolic, but that fucking party deserves to pay the consequences for what it's done to this country. The problem now is that I hate them so much and am so fucking angry that I can't imagine being satisfied unless I know they have suffered severely. Hell, I'm willing to suffer myself if I know it's causing them pain.

I have NEVER loathed anybody as I fucking hate these repigs. I hate them and history will not be kind to these motherfuckers.

This Asshole obviously doesn't understand about freedom of speech, nor does the idiot understand

that English is NOT the "official" language of the United States. Even if it WERE, she still couldn't tell ANYBODY what they should or shouldn't speak. I am certain the racist idiot doesn't speak anything other than her native 'American English'!
