    Did someone imply the red triangle was an accident or did someone imply that given several options, how can anyone know which one is correct?

    I donít understand why people feel the need to search out obscure signs and portents when going after Trump. Or dig through the this-day-in-history sites to gin up extra outrage over him appearing at some place or date hallowed by the blood of martyrs. All you really need to attack the guy are his own words. You donít need an elaborate demonology from the Woke clerisy.

    Trump is a backlash politician who especially thrives on the sillier sounding attacks. Coming up with dog whistle conspiracy stuff probably helps more than hurts him.

    I already previously answered as to why the other possible meanings you presented were unlikely. Did you have some more random potential meanings to toss out there?

    Itís all laid out in ďThe Da Vinci CodeĒ, for those with the courage to face the truth.

    OK, so lets go with your belief that the red triangle was used in the ad as a representation of political prisoners. Tell me please what audience was it serving and also what group was it meant to harm?

    It was meant to do the same thing as his comments about good bloodlined Henry ford. To let his American nazi supporters know that he is still on their side.

    And frankly it harms all of us to have a racist shitstain for a president, but some people don't seem to care and prefer to deny what is so obviously in front of all of our eyes.

    I'm trying to understand how many leaps of faith I'd have to make to be as certain as you. Being open minded and curious is exhausting!

    Thanks for providing an example of what I'm talking about. But please keep using contortions to come up with thoroughly implausible explanations for everything trump does. I guess that's the new definition of open minded and curious.

    I haven't provided any explanations, I was curious about what the red triangle stood for and found several examples, one of which possibly lines up with the campaign's explanation. You can reject that if you wish but you shouldn't mis-represent my actions, that's dishonest.
