    You seem to have a 'thing' for Jews. BTW you don't think Jews can be fair and balanced? Why not say what you really think. Otherwise some might think you're biased or maybe jealous.

    I will never let any seemingly pointed reference (negative) to Jews go without response.

    "of the same group? Fare and balanced I don’t know you decide." Seems a none to subtle suggestion that Jews are not.

    In the United States, at least, Jewish people are overwhelmingly liberal Democrats. That's no more racist than stating that blacks are overwhelmingly Democrat, except that blacks are even more overwhelmingly Democrat. It is not racist to state a fact.

    I totally agree, and certain ethnics do certainly gravitate to parties, but your reply while accurate seems a non sequitur since party affiliation or 'racist' was not at issue as I saw things. Stars on people send a message, or should. I saw a suggestion that Jews might not be fair and balanced (especially singled out) as opposed to..?? Who?

    Bigot,racist,Nazi, UberFeminist and similar labels are used far too often.
    Sources of remarks are often helpful. Like I can say Hitler and Nazis had Jews wear stars (Yellow) that's a documented fact. If I see a star on a picture otherwise it's an unproven label, unproven unless there's a factual source referenced and even then it might suggest an agenda. Jew baiting is a popular forum topic in some venues though facts supported on any subject is grist for the mill.
    I have know way of confirming CNN is (suggested) infested with Jews so the fairness of news 'may' be unfair. Innuendo can be as denigrating as is 'damned with faint praise.'

    Not sure why the Star of David is featured so prominently or even if accurate. If you follow the premise, then where would Jared and Ivanka Kushner stand?

    Jared and Ivanka are pretty liberal.

    I don't know, and I don't even know if everyone on Martin's CNN list are Jewish. My only point in this is that Jewish people in America tend to be liberal Democrats, and there's nothing whatsoever racist in acknowledging statistical fact.

    Probably most are but I haven't really looked it up. There are always exceptions. I'm sitting here thinking of all the Jewish people I know. :)

    One came to mind and I think he's a Republican but I'm not sure.

    Hope I'm not being racist thinking about who I know that is Jewish.

    Just remembered that @Steve North is Jewish but I don't know his political views and maybe that's how he likes it.

    She converted prior to marriage to Jared Kushner. Some of those people listed on the CNN picture converted prior to or result of marriage. It could be argued that Judiasm in not a race, so therefore the picture is not racist. Stating they are all liberals or biased towards liberals is even acceptable. However the inclusion of the Star of David on each picture and the accompanying inference is most definitely bigoted. Any attempt otherwise, is seriously weak B.S. and which such statement, will no doubt anger many on this forum. A rose by any other name still smells like a rose and this has the opposite odor.

    I wouldn't know how to tell a Jewish person apart from someone who isn't Jewish. Probably, if they were Orthodox, I'd notice.

    Before this thread, I hadn't considered that there might be people who think the Nazis invented the Star of David.

    I know because they've said they were Jewish. In fact I just remembered a dear friend from a forum long ago that was Jewish and she was definitely a conservative. She died a few years ago but is still on my FB page.
