This post is not worthy of being moved to RSP. Real RSP citizens proudly own the stupid shit they say. Joe FakeName? Please!

I think that in your rush to defend the racism, you missed that the Sheriff star on this game has the little circles on each star point, which is not a part of the Jewish symbol and is associated with law enforcement. I'm sure your agenda of hate will give you the energy to scour other BGG images looking for 6 pointed stars to gotcha us with. Carry on.

Donald Trump's Star of David Hillary Clinton Meme Was Created by White Supremacists

A sheriff's badge is NOT the same thing as a Star of David because most, if not all, such badges have little globes at the head of the star's six points.






The image of the Star of David on a pile of money with Hillary Clinton in the frame was created by a white supremacist.


> Excerpt from the July 3, 2016 News.Mic news story by Anthony Smith entitled:

Donald Trump's Star of David Hillary Clinton Meme Was Created by White Supremacists

Donald Trump tweeted a meme Saturday that used dog-whistle anti-Semitism to announce that his political rival, "Crooked Hillary," had "made history."

The meme Trump tweeted prominently featured the Star of David, a holy symbol of the Jewish religion that Nazis attempted to pervert by forcing Jews over the age of 6 to sew it onto their clothing during Hitler's reign.

Emblazoned onto the Star of David in Trump's meme are the words "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"

The star lies atop a giant pile of money.




News.Mic discovered Sunday that Donald Trump's Twitter account wasn't the first place the meme appeared. The image was previously featured on 8chan's /pol/ — an Internet message board for the alt-right, a digital movement of neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and white supremacists newly emboldened by the success of Trump's rhetoric — as early as June 22, over a week before Trump's team tweeted it.




Following this report, the account from which the watermarked Star of David meme comes began deleting some of its more inflammatory images. The account itself no longer existed as of Sunday afternoon.

Though the thread where the meme was featured no longer exists, you can find it by searching the URL in Archive.is, a "time capsule of the Internet" that saves unalterable text and graphic of webpages. Doing so allows you to see the thread on /pol/ as it originally existed. Its URL address is: http://archive.is/E0Dto

Of note is the file name of the photo, HillHistory.jpg, potentially a nod to the Neo-Nazi code for "HH," or "Heil Hitler," which the alt-right is fond of hiding in plain sight.

The watermark on the lower-left corner of the image leads to a Twitter account that regularly tweets violent, racist memes commenting on the state of geopolitical politics.

Doubtful, unless he saw the ban (and self-deletion) coming and made plans in advance (years in advance that is).

Also, GreyICE was in that thread arguing against those who defended Trump.
