… wake up. I have literally no patience for those people anymore. Zero.
He has emboldened racists everywhere. Even in my own backyard.
A Synagogue not far from where I live and even closer to my kid’s school was defiled with anti-Jewish and racist slop the other night. This Synagogue is a special place for many people who I know and call friends or colleagues.
I have set up tables for school events alongside these people, served with them on Parent Council. I respect them and they are part of my community.
And their children are my children’s’ friends. They play sports together… go to each others’ birthday parties.
I am angry. Really, really pissed off. And I am more determined than ever to do whatever I can to stop the spread of this filth perpetrated by beings that are lower than pond scum. It is the least I can do for my friends, colleagues and their families.
And if you care at all about our inclusive, tolerant and open communities, you too will speak out against this.
