  • PewDiePie vs WSJ re Anti-Semitic posts and Nazi imagery

    WSJ published an article claiming that a popular YouTuber PewDiePie (Felix Kjellberg)
    made anti-semitic remarks and used Nazi imagery, to essentially promote Anti-Semitic sentiment.  PewDiePie claims that his comments were taken out of context and these are targeted attacks against him by the WSJ. This is now turning into a full blown public debate with PewDiePie supported by 10s millions of his youTube followers essentially taking similar position as Trump re media being enemy of the people. Disney and other larger advertisers cut their ties with PewDiePie.  The dynamics of Big name media companies vs social media influencers are changing.  Both sides have strong arguments.  Racism and Anti-Semitism is an important topic not to be taken lightly. This public debate is evolving daily, so which side are you on? 
    With Trump takimg a stromg stance against media, and now this..will it turn into a broader conflict of People against Media, and who is right?

    Below is the WallStreet Journal Article

    And PewDiePie video response

  • Valuable lesson how to deal with rejection - post comment in WashingtonPost supporting Trump

    In a great TED talk, "What I learned from 100 days of rejection", Jia Jiang spoke how everyone shoud learn how to deal with adversity, by putting themselves in an uncomfortable situation where people will reject you or tell you no.  I enjoyed his Ted Talk and decided to expose myself to rejection (and in this case personal insults), by posting a reply in WashingtonPost Trump-related article, expressing my support for Trump's position on that specific topic.  My first comment quickly received numerous replies from Trump haters, leaving me feeling like being attacked by green flies, with anything questioning my intelligence and my level of education. 
    That article had about 1500 comments, and my comment received most replies. Remembering the lesson from the Ted Talk, now prepared for personal attacks, next day  I posted another comment on a Trump-relatedWashingtonPost article.  Wow. Pretty much same reaction.  This time I knew what to expect and was ready for the personal attacks.  I got a very similar reaction.  Again my comment was the one with most replies.  This time I didn't take it personally, and calmly replied to all replies with a logical counter-argument.  
    In both cases, I didn't get much support from Trump fans. I guess they know better and stay away from aggressive anti-Trump comments sections of Washington post.  That was a valuable lesson from me, applying Ted talk principles, and everyone should do something similar in preparing for real life confrontations with Adversity.

    First Washingtonpost article: Trump called the press the enemy
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/02/19/trump-called-the-press-the-enemy-reince-priebus-says-he-meant-it/?utm_term=.733b6fe97773

    The public is getting tired having media publish half baked or stretched stories to discredit President Trump. We realize that trashing Trump is good for ratings, but common guys - he is the President of the United States and you are supposed to be professional journalists. Check your sources, show respect. A debate on http://www.debateisland.com/discussion/404/is-dona... 
    shows clear consensus that 88%of voters agree that Trump is right and is not taking it too far backlashing on the media. 
    I think that media should stop attacking Trump, and should fear that he will sign an executive order to ban them 


    Second Washington post article: Pence tries soothing anxious leaders with pro EU
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/in-trip-to-brussels-pence-tries-soothing-anxious-leaders-with-pro-eu-message/2017/02/20/8a518046-f76e-11e6-9b3e-ed886f4f4825_story.html?utm_term=.424fee3fac13

    I fully expect to be attacked by anti-Trump folks for making this comment, but I think he will continue to support our allies in a way that is fair, and at the same time represents best interest of OUR Country. Trump made it clear with the preceents he already set that he will set American interest first, but he is a savy business man and will not jeopardize long term established relationships we have with our allies. 
    Therr is a debate on DebateIsland.com on this topic this am, shortly after this article came out 
    http://www.debateisland.com/discussion/420/will-tr... and so far vast majority have voted that Trump will continue to provide support.

  • If I support Trump, am I a closet Racist?

    Why so many polls predicted that Hillary Clinton will win, and then the ballots showed something very different? Is it because voters were afraid to tell anyone that they support Trump and his politically incorrect views? Were voters too afraid to tell anyone at work, collegues, etc that they support Trump not to be percieved as a racist? Does it make more than half of the country racists? Speak your true voice on DebateIsland.com, and tell us what you really think. Unless of course you are a racist and used your real name as user id, in which case you may want to tell us that you support Hillary and ex-Obama administration.
