    This P.O.S. is incredibly offensive. There don't seem to be many consequences either for the diarist OR the 20 people that tipped this despite the fact that the diary engages in some pretty awful and offensive meme's. HOWEVER, the diary was just written today so I am of the mind to give the admins. some to time to wipe this out.

    This is the anti-Semitism that Mets talked about in a few diaries and that apparently has surfaced in the last few days.

    Now, some would say... "Well people are frustrated and they are simply venting" BUT.. the thing is that if you have use racist meme's to "vent" then pretty much there is something completely wrong with you. It means that your "default" is racism and bigotry.

    As I said in my email to Markos and elfing... It is not even the bigotry and racism in these posts that are the worst thing. It is the fact that bigots and racists feel comfortable hanging out on DKos and not only that... but are welcomed here to a degree. There are plenty of people reading this who are staying out of the discussion rather than criticize someone on their "side". It's both sad and pathetic and in my opinion are just as culpable for not speaking out.

      and I get why.  But that does not mean that anyone who makes one is actually racist or anti-Semitic.  And I think this diary is a case in point.

      •  it's the hysterical reaction... (0+ / 0-)

        so that we get to react to them, v. the reality of what's actually happening in Gaza at this moment.   it's just a method to shut down discourse on this.
