    Anti-Semitic Hate Speech "doesn't violate "our Community Standards (?)" or U.S. Constitutional provisions, for that matter. It isn't enough to issue a 'disclaimer' to (any) hate speech because every group, organization and person(s) does and/or should have moral/ethical "STANDARDS" that unequivocally denounces such language.  The goal of civility is to make society better, not worse.  Any human conduct that (even) remotely  allow or support hate speech must be denounced and discouraged; especially by organizations that utilize social avenues of expression.  Until every man, woman and child develops a personal fancy for peace, tolerance and cultural indifference, those who lack moral/ethics standard will never find reasons to ‘rethink’ their personal principles and will remain outsiders of human civility.  !Just my thoughts!

      and especially defines it.
