hate crimes, antisemitism, new project 

I just found out that the school I attended, American University, has had two swastikas, an SS, and a Magen David carved into the dorms.

This is exactly why my current project is so important.

I read about probably once incident like this every day or two, literally.

Don't tell me antisemitism doesn't exist, or any of that nonsense. It's incredibly common and it's scary as heck to be Jewish right now...

@emacsen

it may be presumptuos from me but I think it's not just antisemitism

It's antisemitism, it's racism. it's antimuslimness, it's machismo (see abortion), it's antilgbt hatred

it's the same hatred

it's white nationalism

it's extremely similar to what happenedin the 30ies

I know history does not repeat

but the psychological processes at the base of this are the same

And Google and the gafam are blowing on the fire for profit

Sorry, but no.

I've received plenty of antisemitism from folks on the left, from gay folks, from trans folks, etc.

I'm not letting them off the hook by saying that antisemitism is a white nationalist problem and I hope you don't either.

antisemitism by leftists doesn't negate what I argued

The French communists demonstrated against the military campaign against the Nazist Germany

Nowadays, some leftsts still condemn the american intervention in former Jugoslavia

Reactionary politics and white nationalism extends to the left too

I'm not leaving anyone off the hook

> antisemitism by leftists doesn't negate what I argued

It doesn't. What concerns me though is I've seen this continual "othering" of antisemitism, as in "It's not my group that has this problem, it's this other group.", like "It's not *my* political party, it's just some in leadership", etc.

This story hit me hard because that's my university, where I went to school.
