Breaking News: MAGA-Republican candidate for Pennsylvania Governor is an Anti-Semite.

This election-denying jackass has nothing to offer so he plays THIS card? Wow! Thanks Trump. And I mean that most sincerely. Leave it to deplorable MAGA-Republican primary voters to nominate this fellow instead of a Republican with a fighting chance to win.

This is how real journalism is done. Respectful, factual and quietly eviscerating. Watch it. Tapper uses Mastriano’s attack on his opponent and his opponent’s children for attending a Jewish parochial school as a lead it to covering Mastriano’s close association with the founder of the notorious antisemite site – GAB.

  1. Surprising? Not a bit. Just the regular day to day dangerous bs from the (little letters) ‘maga’ brigade. And, of course you thanked the right person – mr Trump…

  2. The Party of the Squad should be careful about playing the antisemitism card.

    I don’t know anything about ties to GAB, but I did not hear Mastriano say that the school in question was Jewish. That was Tapper’s contribution. It is entirely appropriate to call out the Democrat elite for presiding over declining public schools while sending their own children t elite private schools that 90% of their constituents cannot afford.

    If Mastriano is indeed antisemitic, that should be evident in his own words, guilt by association is hardly valid unless you want to play the same game with Democrat politicians.

    What has Mastriano said that would indicate such?

    Tapper’s vivid imagination is not evidence of anything other than Tapper’s own prejudices. For today’s Democratic party, disagreement on issues is not enough, everyone they disagree with must be made a Nazi.

    1. So, your defense of such an antisemitic dogwhistle is that Mastriano was somehow ignorant that the “Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy” is Jewish?

      “I don’t know anything about ties to GAB”
      Well, if you had listened to the entire piece, then you would. The founder of GAB who sports a profoundly antisemitic record of public statements is a paid consultant to the Mastriano campaign.

      Not every MAGA-Republic antisemite and the people who make excuses for them is a modern day Nazi, but many actually are.

      1. Again, Mastriano made no mention of it being a Jewish school.

        But the issue of Democrat elites putting their own children in private schools, whether they be Jewish, Catholic or Druid while presiding over declining public schools is a legitimate issue. Tapper just raised the fact that in THIS PARTICULAR CASE it is a Jewish school to deflect from the issue.

        1. Whether Mastriano mentioned it or not, he knew exactly that this was just a Jewish parochrial school and yet he characterized it as “privilieged”, “elite”, and a place where students learn to disdain “people like us.” You can spin your head off all day long, there is nothing legitimate about such rhetoric.

          Where politicians send their children to school is an “issue” only in a party based on hate, fear, and loathing. The real school issue in Pennsylvania is their need for better and more even funding. Shapiro is running on a platform of supporting public education and Mastriano wants to defund it and move the money to – wait for it – parochrial schools.

          1. Democrat elites putting their own children in private schools while blocking school choice programs for others is a legitimate issue.

            It doesn’t matter who runs the private school.

        Kind’a funny that we’re supposed to believe someone running for the governor’s seat would be THAT unaware. Just my opinion.

      3. You and Adam sure seem to hear a lot of dog whistles that nobody else hears. Is it the drinking, drugs, schizophrenia, hate filled soul or all of the above?

  3. RE: “This is how real journalism is done.”

    Not in my book. Nothing in the Mastriano video clip used to set up the reporting is anti-Semitic. The bulk of the report is propaganda, using guilt by association to smear its target. All in all, a good example of fake news.

    1. …”using guilt by association”..

      Yet Ukraine is guilty of being run by Nazis because there are some in its ranks.

      HYPOCRITICAL mumbo-jumbo.

      Mastriano is an election denying, anti-Semitic, troll who deserves to be disqualified for continuing to push the lie of a stolen election. I say the same thing about Jen Kiggans locally, and ANY politician who continues to deny the results of the 2020 election as legitimate.

      And unless anyone here is actually a victim of anti-Semitic treatment and how it gets cloaked, like myself, you have no standing on whether or not his words and actions are anti-Semitic.

          1. “Guilt by association”

            Uh, that is the reality of political life. If a candidate chooses to employ a well-known antisemite for his campaign he has to be willing to defend that association. Why would a decent person do that? is a legitimate question.

            Shapiro attended a well-known Jewish parochial school and sends his children there as well. Mastriano called it “privileged”, “elite” and full of disdain for “people like us.” For people in the know in Pennsylvania, the dog whistle could not be louder. Give us one good reason for Mastriano to lie about the nature of the school?

            Yes, that’s the fallacy. If you hear dog whistles you are probably a dog.

            They are proof of my assertion that the CNN report is fake news. You can disprove my assertion by showing that Mastriano said something anti-Semitic, but you can’t do that because he didn’t.

            Like Mr. Murphy, you are pretending to know a truth, but you can’t explain it. Your mistake is that you confuse your own assumptions with facts.

          5. Your “assertion” is only an opinion, based on the fallacy that YOU JUST KNOW that Mastriano isn’t really an anti-Semite. Just like RE is really you. I KNOW that, as well.

            …”you confuse your own assumptions with facts.”

            Hell, you are the master at that. SO maybe I should feel complimented that the KING of confusing assumptions with facts has said I was good at it. 😇
