Scott Wiener faces antisemitic and homophobic death threats

This has been a difficult month for state Sen. Scott Wiener, and not just because hes running for re-election on Nov. 3.

Wiener has been the target of death threats on social media (Ill publicly execute you, one reads), according to screenshots of posts he shared on Twitter, and says hes been doxxed, with his home address posted online.

Hes been called a pedophile thousands of times in hashtags, direct messages and comments on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

And because hes Jewish and gay, Wiener has borne the brunt of unrelenting antisemitic and homophobic comments and posts. Were watching you Schlomo, one reads. A post that made the rounds in recent days before being removed from Instagram featured a crudely doctored image showing Wiener with an elongated nose and wearing the garb and hairstyle of an Orthodox Jew.

1. Despicable. And it was only recently that such filth was becoming less acceptable...

but now in the Age of Trump it is out in the open again.

2. A Qanon nephew of my husband sent me a meme where Wiener was accused of passing

Legislation to make pedophila legal. it was a law passed about how LQBTQ youth can not be prosecuted for having sex when they are underage.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/09/03/fact-check-california-law-does-not-decriminalize-sex-minors/3456171001/

I linked to what the legislation was all about to him on Facebook. And then I linked a You Tube video of Kool and the Gang singing Mislead. He never responded back.

I just checked out his Facebook to see if he kept up the post but its gone but he has a pic of MF45 saying he is the only president to outlaw animal abuse!!! Which I know is total bs!
