Leaflets with swastikas found at Virginia Tech Jewish center


Leaflets with hand-drawn swastikas were found this weekend strewn across the lawn of the Chabad Librescu Jewish Student Center at Virginia Tech, officials said Sunday.


Rabbi Zvi Zweibel, the center’s co-director, said he was shocked Saturday afternoon to discover about 100 leaflets scattered in front of the Chabad House, located just off campus on Wall Street.


“It’s something that I never believed would happen in Blacksburg,” he said.



The incident came a day after the center announced it would bring Holocaust survivor Rabbi Nissen Mangel to campus for an event on April 24. The event is meant to honor professor Liviu Librescu, a Holocaust survivor who was killed in the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings when he blocked the door of his classroom so students could escape through windows.

2. Yes, they are.

It is good for them to have such scum in the White House and have very little push back in regards to people's interest in anti-Semitism.

3. This became alarming months ago

Now it's also depressing because so few seem to give a shit. My cousin's son is looking at colleges for next year and is having to consider the conditions for Jews on many campuses. The conflation between Israel and ALL Jews is making some campuses FAR too unwelcoming for Jews. Needless to say, if this were ANY other minority, the reaction of supposed liberals would be far different.

4. Agreed!

Do take a look in the Jewish Group to an update to the University of Illinois-Chicago story.

What pisses me off, besides the obvious, are the assholes who still try to pretend the conflation (of criticism of Israel and anti-Semitism) is only one-sided, this includes Jews who will overlook anti-Semitism when it suits their needs to be "good Jews" protesting.

6. That thread

needs to be seen by more people, I'm putting a link here:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12232478

People HERE need to see this isn't only a problem on the right and this didn't start with degenerate donnie inhabiting the oval office. That twit who tried to co-opt the women's march and claimed you can't be a feminist and a Zionist needs to be taken down a peg or 12. I would hate the US to become a place like Great Britain where I, a liberal and a Jewish Zionist, have no political home.

9. Disgusting, wasn't it?!

Imagine if any other minority group were singled out in such a fashion; the outrage would be palatable. But, it is "just Jews" so it merits a big "meh". What is really pissing me off are these groups screeching about "intersectionality" but refuse to acknowledge the real "intersectionality" is the anti-Semitism many of them share (some times other forms of anti-other minority discrimination) and promote.

7. Where is our "dear" Attorney General in all of this?

Damn, I wish he were being investigate for Russian ties. It would be possible to get rid of the entire bunch of deplorables running our Executive Branch.
