    Tough talking Chelsea Handler breaks down as she discovers grandfather’s Nazi past in new episode of Who Do You Think You Are?

      Yawwwwwwwwwwn…so what?
      He was a member of a youth group run by the SA, that’s like saying a kid’s a Republican as he belongs to the ROTC.
      They found he had a leistungsbuch with a swastika on it…horror of horrors! Nearly every kid’s organization had one…it’s an individual record of your performance in the group. It was almost mandatory that all youth belong to some youth group or face scrutiny, not like the kids all volunteered out of a deep Germanic desire to have their antisemitic talents sharpened. As for the swastika on the cover, what did she expect, the rainbow flag?
      So he was on the Eastern front and had his unit almost wiped out…considering the description he may have been in my grandfather’s unit, especially as he then went to the south of France – again sounds like my grandfather’s unit.
      Dear Chelsea, the ONLY way to check and say if your grandfather was a Nazi is to check the archived Party records and see if he were listed. Just being a member of the military DOES NOT make you a Nazi, you must apply, be accepted and then you are a Nazi. But then in these days of confusing historical fact with manufactured fact, who knows…who cares. John Kerry and I wore uniforms with the same flag but that don’t be makin’ me no Rat.
      In all it’s great PR for Chelsea…I just wonder what her grandchildren will think of her when they go back and read her press?

        My great grandfather left Germany in the 1850s if I remember correctly. I might have had relatives in Germany who were Nazis. So what does that have to do with me, if so? I wouldn’t hang my head in shame. It is what it is. It’s called history. Good, bad, ugly.

          Zactly. The ‘white guilt’ ethos was supposed to make us assume the guilt of our long-dead slave owner ancestors. Didn’t have slave owners in your past as your relatives came over after the Civil War? Then your guilty was of having grown up in a racist society built on the bodies of slaves…and so forth.
          My ex’s family owned a plantation with slaves in Georgia and none of the family feels guilty. I had family in the Wehrmacht and the Lodz ghetto. Sorry, left my angst over things I had no control over in my other suit.

            “…. My ex’s family owned a plantation with slaves in Georgia….. “

            My Father’s family has been here since the 1730’s via a land grant in what is now S. Carolina and looking at records and what family stories I was told, we has slaves from the beginning. After the war of Northern aggression, we didn’t. Members of the family moved along the East Coast and along the gulf and some stayed. Some have been successful and others not so much.
            I don’t think any one of them has ever cursed the lack of slaves and the inability to get any more by whatever means as the reason for ups and downs in life.

    Uncle George’s Kind Explanations of How Things Work:

    Look, kids. When I go into a real estate deal I begin by beating the snot out of the other guy. What do I beat him with? His own presumption and laziness.

    This is what Trump is doing to Mexico.

    Sure. It makes people break out in hives. They piss themselves occasionally. More than once I’ve had to tell a client to sit down and be quiet, speak only when I hold up three fingers and chant the Yale fight song…

    It makes everybody nervous as a coyote shitting fish hooks…

    And it works. Once you get past the preliminaries, you get to feel like somebody in control of his life again.

    That is all.

      The wackos in California are getting serious about leaving the USA.

      Interestingly, they want to take the state with them. Yes, California.

      Perhaps, they will elect hillary as their President and live happily ever after.
      Well, at least until they realize their dream is a nightmare with queen hillary.

      β€˜Calexit’ organizers get permission to gather
      petition signatures for California to secede

      Supporters of the so-called β€œCalexit” movement got the green light late Thursday to begin collecting the 585,407 voter signatures needed to get an initiative on the November 2018 ballot.

      The group behind the proposal, known as Yes California, now has six months to collect and submit the signatures, according to California’s Secretary of State Alex Padilla.

              Anyway, ain’t gonna happen. What would they live on? The Central Valley, of agricultural & state economic income fame, would fight to the death NOT to secede. They despise the liberals. And where would the newly brass-minted state get enough water? Right now, most of it comes from the Colorado River–which, last I looked, does not originate in CA.

  16. So, I have a question. I know that Next Door sundance did a lot of writing about the, ahem, “refugee crisis” and covered some of the organizations that want to resettle the immigrants in America because of the taxpayer-funded kickbacks they get for doing so. Does anyone remember if a group called Exodus Refugee Immigration was involved?

    Backstory:

    There was a story I read about them today. I guess they were part of the group that decided to h*(l with Indiana, they wanted Syrian “refugees” here and they sued Mike Pence’s admin. to get his ban on the Muslim invaders overturned. Now they’re butthurt again because Trump in enforcing stricter vetting.

    I shouldn’t be so upset, but I was in support of Pence’s lawsuit and I know that the Syrian refugees aren’t refugees (Syrian Christians are the only exceptions to this rule, and I don’t think Exodus is bending over backwards to help those people). I have no desire to be a rape victim or get groped by third worlders who will never assimilate. So, I really don’t like Exodus. Ihey are the kind of group that sets of warning bells in my mind. They are associated with the Episcopal Church. One of Exodus’ past stellar ideas was helping the Cuban Boatlift invaders, too*. I do remember that SD talked about churches being involved in a scheme that gave them huge amounts of taxpayer money for resettling imagined refugees and other assorted invaders and I’m trying to figure out if these people are involved.

    *Invaders might be strong but Castro opened the jails and mental institutes. I’m tired of this country being the garbage can of the world. And even if they didn’t come from jails or mental institutes, they were still illegal aliens. I’m sick of this story stuck on repeat forever. I’m tired of America always having to fix the rest of the world’s problems. American sovereignty first and forever.

    For some good fun I dug up some comments from deranged leftist fools online. Enjoy.

    I’m having major anxiety attacks, and have been on anti-depressants since the inauguration. Even though I’m Canadian.

    This is a classic effect of 4th Generation Warfare. The psychological assaults disrupt your perception of reality. They instill uncertainty, bewilderment, confusion, fear, a loss of trust and even despair. Sound familiar?

    We’ve been bombarded with what amount to “reality bombs”.

    These feelings are not accidental – they’re choreographed.

    Who are they being choreographed by, and why?
    The who is the FSB, acting through Bannon and Trump.
    For the why, please please please Google “Alexander Dugin”.

    This is what WWIII feels like in the 21st century.

    Despair, fact finding, activism, escapism. I cycle through those spaces, being unable or unwilling to occupy any one of them for sustained periods of time. It’s still early to work through a shock as massive and menacing as this.

    A mild case of PTSD. I am a lesbian and the future 4 years looks exceptionally bleak.

    I see everything in a negative light. I’m paranoid. One night I took 1/2 xanax after a beer. I yelled at my husband and lost patience with my pets. I walk around with a lump in my throat. Hard to focus on work.

    The march last Saturday was thrilling. Other than that I just wanna be out of here.

    In this case, Trump has masterfully used the media’s pathetic naivetΓ© and desire to battle him to make them focus on a throwaway battle β€” his seeming obsession with crowd size (which I can almost guarantee he could not care less about) β€” while he determinedly does what he does care about: signing orders that resurrect pipeline projects, retooling our broken immigration laws, laying the groundwork for a better health care system and preparing to build the wall.
