What can be expected in a mockery of democracy where a big part of the white population are racists, white supremacists and want to get rid of anyone whose skin is less white than theirs..

That is the legacy of Trumpyclown, having empowered all these sick people and give them a voice and an opportunity to demand their "white privileges".

What a sick country !!..

Things have taken an ugly turn at the White House after Biden took over.

Trump, who has Jewish family members and business partners, would not have tolerated this one bit.

Oh yeah, the "Good people on both sides" guy, right? Including people screaming "Jews will not replace us", of course. Those were good people.

Please don't make us laugh.

“As this painfully reminds us, antisemitism isn’t a relic of the past,” Blinken said in the message. “It’s still a force in the world, including close to home. And it’s abhorrent. It has no place in the United States, at the State Department, or anywhere else. And we must be relentless in standing up and rejecting it.”

Any libs here object to this characterization? That's all I'm asking.

Try asking the insurrectionists on January 6th wearing actual nazi paraphernalia, might get a funnier answer.

If I were a “conservative,” I would say this sounds like a bunch of lib CRT-driven, woke, SJW blathering.

donald's loving boys wore Camp Auschwitz T-shirts during the love fest on January 6th.

It'll not be a surprise if a few of these loving boys, who have more allegiance to the rabidly anti-semitic Russia than the USA, did this.

I would bet money that there is a surveillance camera in that elevator.

It's NOT anti-Semitism. It's anti-zionism and it may get worse as the zionists continue their Genocide against the Palestinians and stir up anti-Judaism as they did in Germany in the early 20th Century. zionism is to Judaism what ISIL is to Islam and the KKK to Christianity, just the conscienceless crazies that ALL belief systems produce in some measure. The zionists represent themselves as all Jews when, in fact, most sane Jews repudiate the Racism and hatred and murder that the zionists extol. The non-zionist Jewish-Germans were silent to their own disaster and Jewish-Americans are equally silent or be called "self-hating Jews" by monsters who didn't care about any Jew who wasn't a zionist and don't now. There were NO zionists in the German camps and now the zionists have their own barbed wire and walls 'death camps' which they routinely attack and kill innocents on any pretext they can find. Racist fascism is not just for Euro derived people. It is a fact of Human life in many places and, most certainly, in Occupied Palestine. But you really are not ALLOWED to let anyone, even a Jew, say this, are you? Think about that...

It's NOT anti-Semitism. It's anti-zionism 

It is anti-semitism.

A swastika is more than just anti-Semitic and who had access to the lift? No cameras for female safety? A swastika is racist, anti-white, anti-socialism, anti-America, anti-government.

Uh right, let me see if I got this straight. Trump was totally OK with a murderous mob of anti-Semitic white nationalists ransacking the Capital building in his name, but he draws the line at elevator graffiti?

The swastika is the highest symbol of white fascism. But the swastika is not illegal in America. The act of vandalism in the lift is illegal but not the swastika itself.

What is happening to the Palestinians is anti-Semitic. Criticism of murderous, racist behavior by invasive Euros of Turkic descent, whatever they claim about themselves, is not. Read the history and two Jewish historians, one a celebrated writer, chemist, historian, polymath essentially, Arthur Koestler and the other a professional historian and professor and son of an IDF colonel, Shlomo Sands, will be happy to educate anyone capable of reading in, respectively, "The Thirteenth Tribe" (think about it, as in the Old Testament 'Twelve Tribes of Israel') and "The Invention of the Jewish People". Neither is particularly "anti-Semitic" but, as honest historians, have no respect for racist lies or racists.

Agreed. The apartheid like laws of Lebanon and Syria represent inhumane treatment of the Palestinian Arabs in those countries.

On the other hand, the Arabs living in Israel have better treatment and more rights than Arabs in any other Middle East country.

Certainly not 'carved'. Just very crude schoolkid scratches.

Israel discriminates against its Arab and Palestinian citizens.
