  •  What, specifically, about them is? (0+ / 0-)

    Don't dismiss my views - that's not how liberals should act.  Focus specifically on content of the play or the movie in this particular case and tell me how it is responsible for someone else's hatred.  Don't talk about history either.  Talk about the content of the play/movie.

      ....your view.  Rather, I'm telling you it's wrong.

      You are free to believe anything you please, including that a long-standing fixture of historical incitement against Jews, which especially around this time of year has led to numerous pogroms, is not antisemitic.

      I am free, in turn, to inform you that you lack the experience and gravitas with which to speak on such issues, particularly regarding the insensitive, combative and dismissive manner in which you do so.

      And no, history can not be left out of serious discussion of any issue, especially one such as this.

      I promise that later this week I'll head on over to the co-op, and confer with the single grain of salt it's due, your concern over the authenticity of my liberalism.

      Have a nice weekend, and a wonderful holiday if you're celebrating it.

      •  You suggested my opinion didn't count for much. (0+ / 0-)

        If that's not being dismissive I don't know what is.  I feel like Christians are being told that we can't or shouldn't tell our story because of what some ignoramouses have done or might do.  Haters are going to hate regardless, and you have no idea what my experiences might be.

      •  And just to be clear... (0+ / 0-)

        ...I don't deny the history.  In fact I am very aware of it.  I just think the blame for anti-Semitic actions should rest solely with those who actually commit such actions.
