Greta Thunberg is literally Jesus now :roll: https://www.dn.se/nyheter/varlden/tysk-biskop-jamfor-greta-thunberg-med-jesus/
Potato English said:
German bishop compares Greta Thunberg to Jesus

Politicians and other powerful people have not been able to avoid showing their admiration for Greta Thunberg's climate commitment and the movement formed in her footsteps.

Now, Berlin's Archbishop Heiner Koch has also spoken about the 16-year-old activist, at an appearance in German radio.

- Friday's demonstrations remind me a little about the biblical episode of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, he says according to Die Welt.

This is due to the fact that young people around the world left school benches in order to instead demonstrate climate demonstrations on streets and squares on Fridays.

Heiner Koch's parable comes appropriately enough for the Palm Sunday, when, according to the Bible, Jesus rode onto a donkey in Jerusalem where he received tribute to the people. According to Koch, it is possible to discern similarities with the heroic status that Greta Thunberg achieved in certain circles. At the same time he does not want to go so far as to call her a new Messiah.

- I would like to remind you, however, that our society and our church sometimes need true prophets who point out unwanted development and suggest solutions, says Heiner Koch.

Is there any stereotype that leftists like to push more than that all Republicans are racist? Or neo-Nazis? What better way than to do that than through a bunch of rural white supremacists driving pick-up trucks suppressing black voters?

In the April 11 episode of the CBS All-Access show The Good Fight, titled “The One where a Nazi Gets Punched,” Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) and Jay Di Persia (Nyambi Nyambi), two black law clerks travel to a rural community outside Chicago to be Democrat poll watchers on voting day for a special election.

The tone is set when two white Republican poll watchers, one male and one female, arrive and begin to interact with Lucca and Jay. The white Republican woman asks Lucca if they are supposed to be enemies and strikes up a conversation by asking, “So, let’s talk about Black Lives Matter.” Really?

Not long after that, a man arrives in a t-shirt advocating for marijuana use. The Republicans lodge a complaint to the election judge over electioneering over the objections of the Democrats and the man is told he can't wear the shirt to vote. He removes his shirt and there is a swastika tattoo on his back. The Democrats thought they had a voter but then Lucca turns to the Republicans and says, “Congratulations.” The Republican woman says that is offensive and, “A swastika doesn’t mean a Republican voter.”

Next, white men, called the Red Jackets, arrive in pick-up trucks to monitor against voter fraud. Their ringleader is Lance, a white nationalist. Cars of black voters are seen turning around and leaving the polling place. Lucca and Jay declare it voter suppression.

Lucca calls Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) for advice. Diane tells Lucca to take photos of the men and then she calls her friend, an opposition researcher, who proceeds to dox the Red Jackets. Meanwhile, Jay calls a friend who is a local television reporter. The reporter comes to film two men who are discovered to be sex offenders being hauled off by the local police.

Afterward, in the restroom, Jay ends up punching Lance and the male Republican poll watcher comes out of a stall and backs Jay up. Then, back out in the parking lot, a fight breaks out and the female Republican poll watcher comes to the aid of Lucca. Surprise! Republicans aren’t monsters, after all.

The end of the episode has Jay addressing the camera with a riot around him. He says he was taught to never throw the first punch, not to be an instigator, but then he saw a video of white supremacist Richard Spencer being punched. Because Spencer was being interviewed and treated like Neo-Nazism was just another political view, Jay goes full ANTIFA and decides that, "There's no better way to show some speech is not equal, some speech requires a more visceral response." He concludes, “It’s time to punch a few Nazis.”

I have no doubt that this show’s liberal audience will enjoy the episode. They believe that Republicans must be dehumanized and these stereotypes play perfectly into that narrative.

Dems' Hypocrisy Soars To New Highs When They Refuse To Say 9/11 Was Committed By Terrorists

Source: AP Photo/Jim Mone
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been in Congress a little over four months. During that time period she has made a splash...and not in a good way. She's made numerous anti-Semitic comments and the Left has continually gone to bat for her. They've made excuse after excuse about how how Omar "speaks her truth," when she questions other people's allegiances to Israel. During a recent event Omar was caught saying "some people" were responsible for September 11th.
That's right.
"Some people."
Not terrorists.
Not extremists.
"Some people."
President Donald Trump tweeted a video with footage from 9/11, along with Omar repeatedly saying "some people" to point out the truly disgusting logic.
And, once again, the Left went after President Trump, saying he was inciting violence against Omar.
Somehow, Trump is responsible for Omar's disgusting comments?
The Left will do anything in their power to tear down Trump, even when he did nothing wrong.
Now, #IStandWithIlhanOmar is trending on Twitter. And it's being used to condemn Trump's video.
The Left is "exhausted" with the daily comments made about Omar and the threats being made against her. They say conservatives are silent about the danger Omar is being put in.
Let's get something straight: Omar puts herself in these situations when she makes really dumb, unthoughtful comments.
"Some people" committed the attacks on September 11th?
No.
Extremist Muslim terrorists who wanted to commit mass carnage committed these heinous actions. Not calling them terrorists is a way of downplaying what took place. Omar is verbally stomping on the graves of roughly 3,000 Americans who lost their lives on that tragic day...simply because they're American.
Conservatives were quick to remind people who are using the hashtag of the disgust:
Democrats need to do some soul searching.

Since when is it a bad thing to call out terrorists for killing innocent people? Since when are we such a triggered society that we're constantly thinking about how other people feel when we say it's wrong for innocent people to die because others hate their race, religion and nationality?
Democrats need to stand up and answer the question: what is a terrorist? And when will they call someone a terrorist? How many people have to die before their actions are considered "terrorist acts?" 100? 1,000? 10,00? What is their threshold.
It's sad that the one thing that brought every American together – the idea that we will NEVER forget the innocent lives taken on September 11th – is now something that is dividing us.
This isn't a right vs. left issue. This is a right vs. wrong issue. But clearly morality is out the window.

1:00 minute in, Bush also called them "people". Argument invalid and Republicans aren't self aware to realize they're hypocrites too.

I'm not sure if I should praise or slap the author who titled an article about 9/11 with "soars to new highs".

The Dems were okay with allowing a mosque to be built near (if not on) ground zero, so of course they're trying to avoid saying the "T" word when describing their favorite goat fuckers, except they'll happily call right-wingers Nazis in the same breath because they legitimately believe they're the same thing. Politicians can't keep track of their hypocrisy and propaganda anymore, haven't for years as they recycle the same shit over and over.

this is the same shit that happened with Trump saying both sides of the Charlottesville protests had "fine people" and the Dems flipping their lids over it. some fuck journalist capitalizes and sensationalizes a few words and dresses it up to make it appear the speaker is downplaying the actual events, when anyone with a decent grasp on reality knows that's not it at all. fuck journalism.

This is a presidential speech at Ground Zero which as far as i am aware appears to have been taken in 2001 "days after 9/11", did you expect him to rant about Islam?

That particular example is useful as nothing more than a showpiece in PR.

Lol. The tab for this website literally says "Conservative news, politics, opinion, breaking news analysis, political cartoons and commentary-Townhall" This is just like a Huffington Post article discussing how icky Republicans except in reverse. Anybody, whether they're Republican or Democrat, who writes something this blatantly biased and partisan should be shot out of a cannon.

Brazilian President Bolsonaro menaged to be more Trump than Trump by angering Israel about what he said about the Holocaust.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/13/world/middleeast/bolsonaro-holocaust-forgive-israel.html ( http://archive.li/QOpX4 )

President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil drew Israel’s ire on Saturday for saying the crimes of the Holocaust are forgivable.
Mr. Bolsonaro made the comments Thursday night at a meeting with evangelical pastors in Rio de Janeiro. He was talking about his visit to the Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem earlier this month.
“We can forgive. But we cannot forget,” he said of the Holocaust, adding that action was needed to ensure its horrors were not repeated. “Those who forget the past are condemned to not have a future,” he added.

President Reuven Rivlin of Israel and Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial criticized the right-wing Brazilian leader, who has come under fire before for his controversial statements on other subjects.
“We will never forgive and never forget,” Mr. Rivlin said on Twitter. Without mentioning Mr. Bolsonaro by name, he went on with a message clearly directed at him.

“Political leaders are responsible for shaping the future. Historians describe the past and research what happened. Neither one should stray into the territory of the other,” he said.
Yad Vashem, the center in Jerusalem that serves as a memorial to the six million Jews murdered by Nazis during World War II, also took issue with Mr. Bolsonaro’s comments.
“We disagree with the Brazilian president’s statement that the Holocaust can be forgiven,” the center said, according to Israeli media reports.
This month, Mr. Bolsonaro visited Israel for four days and traveled to Yad Vashem with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He stirred controversy during the visit when he echoed an earlier remark by his foreign minister, who said Nazism was a leftist movement.
