Jewish Teen’s Birthday Ruined As Friends Make Swastika Cupcakes

The girls who frosted the cupcakes said they were trying to be funny.

11/29/2016 06:34 pm ET

An Arizona mother said she hopes cruel birthday cupcakes given to her teenage daughter will become a “teachable moment” about the horrors of the Holocaust.

Deborah Muller, of Paradise Valley, said her daughter’s 14th birthday party this month included cupcakes that guests were allowed to frost. Two girls, who Muller said are friends of her daughter, decorated cupcakes with chocolate swastikas, even though the birthday girl is Jewish, according to KPNX-TV.

Muller said in a now-deleted Facebook post that the girls told her they did it to “be funny.” She said the teens all recently learned about the Holocaust in school, and were aware of the symbol’s meaning.

The girls uploaded photos of the swastika cupcake to Snapchat, according to Phoenix New Times. …

Phoenix New Times reports Muller contacted parents of the teens responsible for the tasteless frosting, then shared a photo of the cupcakes on Facebook with this comment:

I thought long and hard about writing this, but you know, it’s better to lose some aquaintences than remain silent. This is not a political post, but I believe this has EVERYTHING to do with the political environment we’re now living in. I think everyone who knows me knows i don’t “have an agenda”.

… I truly hope from the bottom of my heart that our prez elect can bring this cracked country together. Incidents of awful racist, misogynistic, anti-semitic, etc. behavior are skyrocketing — you see it in posts that have been forwarded or news stories, but it always happens “somewhere else” or “not in my backyard”.

Well how about it happening right in YOUR OWN HOUSE? By your 14 year old daughter’s “friends”. At her own birthday party last night? At what should’ve been a really happy occassion, there were charades, name that tune games, a viewing of the Princess Bride, pizza, Polaroiding, gift opening and cupcake decorating. I was upstairs hiding with the dogs b/c I believe 14 year olds don’t need to be babysat while putting sprinkles on cupcakes.

Well, this apparently happened (I only found out about it this morning). Let me tell you that I am Jewish, my daughter is Jewish, there was another Jewish girl at the party as well as many other girls of different religions who don’t have a negative bone in their bodies. But then there were the two girls who created this. Why? Is this funny? Is this right? Is this nice to do at another person’s party in another person’s house? Are the lids to human kindness and decency ripped off so permanently that this can happen to YOUR kid in YOUR house? Just something to think about and maybe have a discussion with your children about certain actions.

Sightings of swastikas and other symbols of hate have surged since Donald Trump’s election victory. On Nov. 12, someone drew a swastika on four dormitory doors at New York City’s New School. Six days later, a Brooklyn park named in honor of Beastie Boy Adam Yauch was desecrated with swastikas and pro-Trump graffiti.

The day after the election, two swastikas were spray-painted on a building in Philadelphia, according to Mic.com.

‘Make Germany great again’, Hitler said


Make America Great Again, Donald Trump cap

From Politicus USA:

Move Over Trump: Adolf Hitler Said He Would ‘Make Germany Great Again’

By Hrafnkell Haraldsson on Fri, Nov 25th, 2016 at 7:57 am

“He told people that he would make Germany great again. He blamed Jews, Socialists, Communists, and others for the troubles of the land.”

That’s right. Donald Trump isn’t the originator of #MAGA. That would be Adolf Hitler, who, if he never made it a slogan, did make the idea “Make Germany Great Again” a central theme of his political movement.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette preserves in its January 4, 1934 issue, a syndicated biopic (“Uncle Ray’s Corner”) of the German leader. …

Make Germany great again, by Hitler

And this “Make Germany Great Again” line was no more a one-off for Hitler than for Trump. The St. Louis Star and Times carried a Hitler speech in 1940 where the Führer said,

“Nationalism and Socialism had to be redefined and they had to be blended into one strong new idea to carry new strength which would make Germany great again.”

Is there an even earlier example of this ‘great’ rhetoric than Hitler in 1934?

Yes, there is.

In July 2016, this blog quoted:

In 1927, Fox News Service filmed Benito Mussolini telling immigrants to ‘make America great’

Hitler imitated earlier fascist dictator Mussolini in various ways, including Mussolini‘s ‘Roman’ salute, which in nazi Germany became the ‘German’ salute. The ‘German’ salute as demonstrated recently by Trump-supporting neonazis in Washington DC, USA.

United States nazi ‘alt-right’, parody song


This 26 November 2016 satiric music video from Britain is called Beastly Boys – “Fight for Alt-Right“.

It is a parody of the song (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party) by the Beastie Boys.

The Beastie Boys were a Jewish hip hop group from the USA.

The parody song is about anti-Semitic supporters of US president-elect Donald Trump.

Its lyrics are:

Kek it!
You wake up late for school, man, you don’t wanna go
You log onto Twitter but they banned Milo
It’s full of annoying SJWs
Sent here to destroy us by wealthy Jews

You gotta fight for alt-right
For Nazis!

You try to score some weed but you’re out of luck
So you spend the day online trolling all the cucks
You graduate from 4chan, now you’re onto 8
It’s time to learn why we need a white ethnostate

You gotta fight for alt-right
For Nazis!

I don’t read anything in the mainstream media
Only stuff that’s been widely discredited on Wikipedia
Race is the foundation of identity
And Donald Trump’s a frog god, seriously

You gotta fight for alt-right
For Nazis!

Trump elected, US racists threaten Muslim genocide


This 27 November 2016 Bangladesh TV video is called Three California mosques receive hateful letters mentioning Trump.

By Andy Campbell in the USA:

Letters To California Mosques Praise Donald Trump, Promise Genocide

“You Muslims are a vile and filthy people.”

11/26/2016 05:35 pm ET

Religious leaders in California are calling for a police investigation after identical letters were sent to local mosques hailing President-elect Donald Trump and calling for death to Muslims.

The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a statement asking for increased protection after the hate-filled letters were discovered at the Islamic centers of Long Beach and Claremont as well as a mosque in San Jose.

The handwritten and photocopied letters, received over the course of the week, were signed by “Americans for a Better Way.” They call Muslims “a vile and filthy people” who “worship the devil” and evoke Trump.

“There’s a new sheriff in town — President Donald Trump. He’s going to cleanse America and make it shine again. And, he’s going to start with you Muslims,” the letters read. “He’s going to do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews.”

CAIR leaders in San Francisco and Los Angeles didn’t initially want to bring the letters into the public spotlight to avoid copycats, but they acknowledged the need for police intervention once the diatribe was sent to a number of jurisdictions across the state, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“We urge local law enforcement authorities to work with Muslim community leaders to ensure the safety of all houses of worship,” CAIR-SFBA Executive Director Zahra Billoo said in a statement. “Our state’s political and religious leaders need to speak out against the mainstreaming of Islamophobia that we are witnessing in California and nationwide.”

Though Trump has said he isn’t aware of campaigns across the country to intimidate and hurt Muslims since his victory, the problem is rampant.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has tracked more than 700 acts of this kind of bias intimidation and harassment targeting Muslims, blacks, Latinos, immigrants and LGBTQ people since Election Day, though not every incident has been independently verified. The Huffington Post’s Christopher Mathias has identified at least 13 incidents in which Muslims have been attacked, harassed or threatened in Trump’s name.

San Jose police are reportedly investigating the letters. It wasn’t immediately clear whether police departments across the state would ramp up security in response to CAIR’s statement.

CAIR urges Muslim community members to report any incidents to police and to the organization’s civil rights department by calling 202-742-6420 or by filing a report online.

Have you been a victim of an act of harassment or discrimination? If so, we encourage you to report the incident to local authorities, and to send us an email about it at: trackinghate@huffingtonpost.com.

Is Trump‘s Attorney General Jeff Sessions a Racist?

23 November 2016

Is Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions a racist? TYT’s Eric Byler spoke to Civil Rights Attorney J. Gerald Hebert, a key witness who testified in the 1986 Senate confirmation hearing for Jeff Sessions’ judicial appointment by Ronald Reagan. Sessions was forced to withdraw his name when Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee chose not to recommend him for a confirmation vote, based on racially insensitive attitudes and remarks. Hebert would not say that Sessions was a racist in 1986. Byler asked him if his view had changed based on Sessions voting record as a U.S. Senator.

Hebert wrote in an editorial published in the Washington Post:

“I was a young lawyer in the civil rights division at the Justice Department in 1981 when I first encountered Jeff Sessions. At the time, Sessions was the new U.S. attorney for Alabama. I met him while I was handling a major voting rights case in Mobile, and I relayed a rumor I’d heard: A federal judge there had allegedly referred to a civil rights lawyer as ‘a traitor to his race’ for taking on black clients. Sessions responded, ‘Well, maybe he is.’

“Five years later, that startling incident came up again, after Sessions was nominated for a federal judgeship. The American Bar Association contacted me and my supervisor to ask for background on Sessions, as was standard in those days for judicial confirmations. I told the ABA about conversations I’d had with the U.S. attorney in which he referred to the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union as ‘un-American.’ As he saw it, by fighting for racial equality, these groups were “trying to force civil rights down the throats of people who were trying to put problems behind them.”

Torygraph

The Daily Telegraph in Britain is often called ‘Daily Torygraph’ because of its links with the Conservative (Tory) party.

flummoxed by Trump

The election of Donald Trump as US president has thrown some of the Tory press into confusion.

The Telegraph has been pushing harder and harder to the right. But it seems genuinely nervous about a US president who is to the right even of a Telegraph editorial.

Spouting off in the press is one thing, but this is a man with his hands on the levers of power — including the nuclear button. And the Telegraph is nervous.

The paper seems to recognise how bad Team Trump is, in particular the “nasty edge” of his senior counsellor and boss of extreme right website Breitbart, Steve Bannon.

According to the Telegraph, Bannon is variously “a provocateur whose ‘alt-right’ web forum is a haven for white supremacists and anti-semites” and “a street brawler.”

It notes that “many former employees of Breitbart News are afraid of Steve Bannon.”

This is a big turnaround from a Telegraph that, when it was politically convenient, treated Bannon’s Breitbart as a respectable source.

This May the Telegraph reported, with a straight face, a Breitbart tale that Hamas was issuing statements publicly backing Jeremy Corbyn.

According to the Breitbart story promoted on the pages of the Telegraph, a Hamas spokesperson called Corbyn’s election a “painful hit on the zionist enemy.”

Breitbart has a long history of fake stories that fall apart.

The Corbyn/Hamas claim, like many Breitbart stories, looked like a ropey tale and soon disintegrated: the Breitbart story was written by its man Aaron Klein, author of one book revealing Barack Obama was “the Manchurian president” with “ties to communists, socialists and other anti-American extremists,” and another book that “reveal[s] the existence of a powerful Marxist-socialist bloc in [the US] Congress.”

So he seems like a man with a colourful imagination rather than a reliable source. The Hamas story referred to a Maoist-sounding but inaccurate “Chairman Corbyn.”

It was denied by Hamas. But despite the obvious flashing warning lights and dodgy Breitbart provenance, the Telegraph reproduced the tale in full, and never reported the subsequent denial.

When it comes to dubious knocking copy, the Telegraph seems happy with stories from a “haven for white supremacists and anti-semites” like Breitbart.

But it seems less enthusiastic about this crew actually running the US.
