  1. you are full of crap, the link to the article which u claim fred trump was a clan member, is actually an article claiming the exact opposite.

    1. @ mishpahat d: No, actually it’s you who are full of crap. Here’s what the article says: Fred Trump was arrested at a Klan rally in Queens in 1927. The charge was failing to disperse after a police order to do so.

      The article says there is no clear evidence that Trump was a Klan member. I disagree. There is plenty of strong circumstantial evidence that he was a Klan member. Why else would he have been at the rally and failed to disperse? Because he was really on the way to the market and got swept up in a mob? Hardly.

      Not only that, but Fred Trump was known throughout NYC as an arch racist. Woody Guthrie, who lived in one of his housing complexes in Queens even wrote a song about how much Fred hated Blacks.

      So is it credible that Fred was a Klan member in 1927. You bet.

      Say I’m full of crap again & I’ll ban your ass in a heartbeat.

    typical leftist self denial tactic. just ban anyone who voices another opinion, and then everyone who posts is automatically all the “agreeers”, painting a very rosy picture.
    is that youre opinion on how democracy should work?
    we’re lucky there is something called elections around here
    u cant reference an article explaining why 1+1=2 to show that it is in doubt, just because someone had to explain how it works. the referenced article went into detailed explanation to debunk the theory that fred trump was a klan member, and u just quote it randomly as if it is on the list of proofs that he was.
    would you quote Genesis 1:1 as a reference to the theory of evolution?
    i understand if someone would not appreciate me calling him a piece of crap, but you are hardly the one to be able to complain about less than fine language, considering all the vile language u use on this website

    1. @ mishpahat d:

      the referenced article went into detailed explanation to debunk the theory that fred trump was a klan member

      A lie. This is all the article says:

      On none of these [Klan membership] registries appears the name for Fred Trump or any relatives….

      There is nothing at all connecting Fred Trump to the Klan other than his mere presence as a spectator to the largest Memorial Day Parade in the country.

      Read this carefully. It says that the 7 men arrested (including Trump) were “Klansmen” who were “berobed.” In other words, not only were all 7 Klan members, they were dressed in the white hoods of the Klan.

      What evidence does the Queens Gazette offer to support its claim? That Trump wasn’t registered formally as a Klan member? That’s probitive of exactly nothing. Secret societies like the Klan could easily have had a member who did not want their names listed on such public registries.

      What further evidence does it offer? That the distance from his house to the riot was 3/4 of a mile. Which is nonsense. That’s not evidence. I’ve offered evidence. They’ve offered none.

      you are hardly the one to be able to complain
