Ever notice how often the media uses the term “far right” and how they absolutely NEVER use the term far left?
They rewrite history.

I throw the Bushes in with the folks he is talking about and last time I checked, they weren’t Jewish.
Neither is obummer, either Clintoon, Merkel, etc.

Why George W and Bill C or so close, Bill is George’s brother from another mother.
