In The News: On Trump’s Pledge

Mark S. Golub explains why it is hypocritical and outrageous for the media to equate Donald Trump’s raising his hand at a rally with the Nazi salute of Adolph Hitler, and why it is also inappropriate for American Jews to do the same.

    SHALOM MARK, JUST LISTEN TO YOU IN REF: DONALD TRUMP PLEDGE, AND I-AGREE WITH EVERYTHING THAT YOU
    SAID ABOUT THE MEDIA, IT IS NO WAY A HITLER SALUTE, AND SHOWS ME HATRED FROM THE MEDIA INSTEAD OF
    COVERING THE TRUTH, THANK YOU FOR YOUR PERSONAL COMMENTS, COMMANDER EUGENE ARYEH LEBOVITZ.

    I agree with you on fair and balanced reporting and, by no shape or form does Donald’s pledge resemble Hitler’s salute in respect to the clip you showed, Although Trumps salute of the floppy wrist does resemble other NAZI / Hitler Videos. But it opens dialogue, Is Trump, the face of a Hitleresk type nationalists agenda? Could that be what some media sources were implying? I defer to a news article that states ” We might have to kill him” North Carolina man says after punching Trump protester. (Published March 10.2016 By WNCN) It almost appeared Trump had people Pledging to him and not just a pledge to vote and, the bigger question why such a pledge with raised hand, which raises another question? Did those who chose not to raise their hand feel a bit intimidated as they would have been at a Hitler rally. Trump seems to have the Delphi method of controlling his jury down to a science or at least his speech writers do.
    You Sir, have put out an excellent video to open talking points. I will visit your site more often. Shalom and Thank You.

    Bravo for your very accurate presentation.
    Trump has reached a level of successes in personal life and in business. He has now his children
    running his affairs. He could have taken the semi-retirement route and take it easy. Instead,
    he thought that America was in danger of many problems to come. He decided to get involved
    for the sake of his country. In think that Mr Trump is very close to the Jewish Community:
    Recently he introduced his Jewish son-in-law proudly and said that his own daughter had
    converted to Judaism. Now, is there a better proof or what. Shalom
    I am very disturbed when people throw around words relating to Germany’s past…
