Between 175 – 64 BC, Antiochus IV, King of Syria, sacrificed a pig to Zeus on the Jewish alter of the temple in Jerusalem, an act called the “abomination of desolation”. With that in mind, few things are more offensive to Jews than bring a pig into a Synagogue. Nevertheless, a pig plans to do that very thing, despite thousands of requests to stay away, because he wants to use Tree of Life Synagogue for a campaign appearance about an hour or two from now.

The synagogue should take his suggestion of stationing armed guards and use them to keep him out.  Not that it would be the first time a murderer went to a victim's funeral, but generally when that happens there is at most suspicion of guilt.  Here there is certainty.

Really, Tom! This is extremely unkind and cruel - to pigs, that is. You owe an abject apology to the world's entire population of swine.

The petition supporting request to stay away had over 130k signers by early this morning.
Reports are he intends to visit victims' families--some who are engaged in traditional burial services today already.
The more moral response I especially loved that I've seen is found:
note the goal was hit within 6 hrs.

He doesn't care about how other people feel, he's all about himself. He'll try to make it a campaign rally. UGH!!
He's void of any emotions or caring about others, and these folks in Pittsburgh and around the world are feeling their pain, and reeling from the loss of their loved ones.

I started noticing,personally, awhile back, many insults that used animals to degrade someone or something..

just thoughtless expressions, no doubt..
But, I always rephrase things, whenever I find myself about to say something i'll regret, when it comes to 'pigs', or any animal, that diminishes one in any way; comparisons don't work, for me, now, when it comes to humans or their actions.. if that involves any kind of degradation.

It happens all the time... and I suppose it will continue, because language changes very slowly.

the picture is odd. I saw pictures like that many years ago, on front pages of magazines; hich ones, i'm not sure - Statesman? New Yorker?

Animals have always been used in political "cartoons', and that's not all.
I think that's sad. Where's the dignity, for the pig?

Rise up!! It's starting to look more and more like an 'animal farm' ...
Power to the pigs!
( pork farmers, may care for their pigs, but in the end, it's another sad thing... "to market, to market, to buy a fat pig.." Sorry for the wanderings, here, off topic.
We love animals, dress up as animals, now on Halloween.. for fun.

it's very interesting. A matter of individual sensitivities, apparently.

I'm not interested in Trump- the pig has trumped him.

As Joanne always says, resist and persist.

Thanks, Tom Cat

stomach~turning behavior from a less~than ignorant excuse for a human being who is simply using up oxygen & taking up space that could be used by a useful lifeform like an amoeba for instance...

That statue, photo-shopped, done by the "The Emperor Has No Balls!" people, or PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!
The pig will have his bacon in the fire, one day.  He will go down in history as the most venal, most divisive wanna-be-president, ever!

He's exactly what I had been saying all along, he's a heartless bas*ard. He does exactly the opposite of what people ask of him. Shows no respect to people, no matter what the crisis is.
Thanks TomCat

That picture is absolutely revolting. And a perfect depiction of an even more revolting human being. There’s only one thing wrong with it: pigs are very intelligent animals and most likely capable of more compassion than Drumpf. So pigs should rightly feel offended by having been morphed into one with him.

Two thousand people took to the streets of Pittsburgh to protest Drumpf coming to their city and visiting their community’s synagogue, but he couldn’t care less. It only got him more of the attention he so desperately craves.

This from another NY Times article:

"... their [Jared and Ivanka] conversation with the president led to a marked change in his language.
Within hours, his remarks went from a vague statement --- "if they had an armed guard inside, they might have been able to stop him immediately," he said --- to a plea to a rally crowd in Illinois to combat "the scourge of anti-Semitism.""

This is ALL politics, and politics at its worst! Nothing matters more than the midterms and holding on to Republican power. Diaper Don does not have one ounce of compassion in his body. His only concern is how to turn a situation to his advantage. Everything is about him.

In one respect, that graphic is appropriate --- he is fat and ugly from the inside out. However, I quite imagine our porcine friends are ticked off with this iteration of Diaper Don.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Vote BLUE no matter who!!!

How sad is it that our country's supposed leader is not welcomed by grieving families? Trump's lack of compassion and unwillingness to accept any blame in the rise of hate crimes due to his rhetoric is telling. The whole presidency is just a game to him. He only uses people and situations for what he can gain. He is simply despicable!

Headline in the local paper, below the fold, said "Trump pays his respects in Pittsburgh amid protests". Which is completely. He respects nothing and no one. That was a political stunt to make him look "presidential" a week before the midterms. No one wanted him there except him. Even the abominations in Congress had the good sense to stay away. But this man has no feeling of any kind other than his own inflated ego. The protestors outnumbered any rally crowd he's ever befouled. He is a pig of a man, with apologies to actual pigs everywhere.

Thanks, Stars, Hugs, and Amen to all. 😻

With respect to pigs, I love my ham and cheese and my bacon. This reference was to try to approximate how despicable his presence was to the Jewish victims' families.

Pharrell decries Trump's playing "Happy" at rally without permission hours after synagogue shooting!!!

The singer, 45, sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump after the president played Williams' 2014 smash hit "Happy" at a political event in the Midwest Saturday, just hours after nearly a dozen people were gunned down in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

"There was nothing ‘happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose,” the letter read, …. "Demand is hereby made that you cease and desist from any further unauthorized use of Pharrell Williams' music."

Williams' legal team noted that the use of the song was not only poorly timed, but in violation of "copyright infringement" and "trademark rights."

Pharrell Williams’ song “Happy” is a beautiful celebration of multiculturalism and happiness. Maybe Trump was “happy” about the rise of deadly intolerance, but how disgusting that Trump misappropriated this beautiful song to rile up his deplorables hours after the synagogue massacre.

Meh!!! 😠 😡
