    Not at all. The (((Echo Through History))) f-cktards are all in the GOP.

    Calling people who didn't like Bernie "anti-semitic" was just the flipside of calling people who didn't like Hillary "sexist."

    I vastly underestimated the "cut off your nose to spite your face" whininess amongst the Dems. Proves that I'm a mere mortal after all! As you may recall, Chump got about the same votes Goopers usually get. Its basically the Dems that decided things such as control of the SCOTUS for example didn't matter to them as much as it did to the knuckledraggers.

    Regarding Zuckerberg, I would assume a lot of rich guys are looking at Trump and saying "hey, I'm richer than that guy and a lot less insane. ITS MY TURN". Dude's welcome to run and make his case. I for one would keep an open mind in regards to voting for him.

    I'm sure every billionaire in the US is thinking, "well, if that f-ckwit can do it..."

    Zuckerberg would be wise to watch Coriolanus before entering politics, but his attempts to fake being religious have been amusing enough to let him run.

    I think with Trump you either love him or hate him for most people, where with Zuckerberg you either think he's okay or mildly dislike him. I think Zuckerberg is similar to LeBron James in wanting to be something he isn't. It seems he would like to be cool/witty/whatever but he's just a nerdy guy who made a lot of money.

    The dummies, maybe, but Z looks like a guy with an answer for everything and he'd long worked out that the Magic Book was just a tool to keep the schlubs quiescent. Everybody on the AP track knows this by 11th grade.

    Plus the guy has (one of his few redeeming features) a solid classical education, so he completely understands comparative history. The moment you see the conga line of religions through the ages and their socio-political roots and functions, the Myth Of The Week goes out the window.

    Isn't Obama somewhat to blame for that as well?

    But I agree with you, I remember mentioning something along these lines to my 3rd party voting brother and his response was basically, "oh yeah...".

Even now, people are mostly fine with Jared and Ivanka having a ton of power(or at least in theory they could if they had a little more intelligence).

    Don't get me wrong, Zuck is 100% guaranteed to crash and burn in hilarious fashion, but a religion he's too spectrum-y to care about won't be the reason.
    Bernie was the Primaries...I dont know if you know this but it isnt the Dems that are going to be the one upset with a Jew. Nice try though...

    Let me guess...the only actual info you have about Zuckerberg is what you saw in The Social Network...cause honestly he never is "trying to be cool".

    No but unless Dems are gonna try and replicate the gain 2 racist voters from Alabama strategy again this ultimately doesn't matter. Unless independents are mostly anti-semitic or something.

    I thought dems not showing up was the issue this time around

    When you say "nearly" was that the difference between the tighter swing states?

    What everyone forgets is the Democrats could get a million more votes next time than Hillary did and still lose. Having more turnout in New York and California does nothing.

    Well that's nothing new, with the stupid electoral college set up we have it will always come down to those few swing states (some of which I'm beginning to wonder if they're even swing states anymore).

    Sure it does. Bernie didnt have to deal with Anti-Semitism because his opponent and her supporters arent Anti-Semitic. If he had won the Primaries it would have taken all of a month before comments on his being Jewish would have been out in front. The Evangelicals would have thrown a fit cause he doesnt believe in the Hippy Black Man with Holes in His Hands, the Catholics would have hated him for not worshiping at the feet of the Pontiff, the Black Muslims would have thrown a fit because they hate Jews for a variety of reasons, the Wackos would have gone after him because of the Worldwide Jewish Conspiracy, oil companies would freak because of how A Jew would upset interests in the Middle East cause of Israel...etc. None of those people are part of the Democratic Primary Voter Block so we heard none of it. It is just a different animal. (sort of like how Dems werent going after Hillary as a woman but as soon as she won EVERYONE was)

    Look you can discount me on anything else but I GUARANTEE I know more about how Jews get viewed by the average person than you do. I have been, many times, the first Jewish person someone has met and the things I have heard are pretty crazy. Hell look how much flack JFK got and he was Catholic...Jews are a completely different animal.

    Anecdotally I have no argument obviously. I just don't know big picture wise how much it would matter here in terms of that slim difference that cost the dems the recent election. You bring up Israel but literally every politician has had horrible views on that subject including Bernie as far as I can tell. Pretty sure some Illinois governor running mate (D) got canned because he supported the Palestinian strategy of boycotting Israeli businesses actually.

    Obviously the GOP would attack this I have no doubt about that but I don't think that solely would cost him the election. He'd have to make bigger mistakes than that to lose to Trump.

    Out of all of the people that are going to be upset by it, how many voted for Obama? Somewhere between zero and zero.
