    So you have shown a degree of sophistication I truly appreciate... yes- any grassroots mass movement must have some degree of tolerance for the superstitious, ethnocentric, or historical idiocy that is necessarily a part of the mass mobilization of people. In other words, the "great unwashed" are stupid. For example, according to a 2006 survey, there are 220 times as many Americans who can name all of the Simpsons than can name the 5 freedoms outlined in the 1st amendment (0.1%).

    If you represent the 99%, you have to understand that you represent a lot of uninformed, misguided people.

    What is the total combined number of hours of raw tape? From that what is the time of anti-Semitism comments aired from the raw tape, sound and video? You don't know, do you? You don't have a freaking clue! So what you are saying is baseless, not valid, incorrect. On top of that, how do you know the people that are aired on radio and television making anti-Semitic statements are part of OWS and are not agents provocateur planted to make dumbass statements so the likes of you will get all huffy and start making massive assumptions about something that you can't ****ing prove and has little basis in fact since OWS began.

    Are there anti-semites out there? Sure, and those people live to make ignorant statements so that short fuse people who roam the world looking for anti-Semitic statements.

    The OWS movement is not about religion or ethnicity. Stop trying to make it something that it is clearly not.

    Historically, spewing anti banker hate and Jew hate have never been more than a breath away from each other.

    Then, as now.

    <sigh> I though for a moment you were a bit more thoughtful than it would appear you are.... yes yes, carry on... OWS is nothing but a bunch of Jew-haters... Nevermind the substantive issues. go back to your sound bite world of IQ 80 gotcha politics.

    Or, is this where you make like Marge Schott and you say, "They have the right idea, but they are going to far?"
    Isn't it really part of the narrative of the Jews throughout history? The narrative (accurate or no) is that Jews controlled the money way back still in biblical times and one could count Jesus as the first OWS protestor when he drove out the money changers and merchants from the Temple. Throughout history into the 20th Century Jews were seen to be the rich, the powerful holding much influence and indeed, there are many lawyers, doctors, and educated jewish men and women in Hollywood and other very affluent portions of society. That there are anti-semitic portions of OWS who are vocally anti-jew isn't surprising at all. It FITS the narrative (though I'm certainly not agreeing with it), and such a view has permeated society in Europe and portions of America (especially the fringe political and societal) for a very very long time. Jew hating in the ME has been there for a very long time, more so since 1948. Europe more so since WWII, but in America it's been pockets of fringe groups and I wouldn't say it's widespread in America. It might actually be a fallacy that OWS just made that falls into that narrative... banks are at fault, the jews are rich bankers, therefore jews are at fault.

    Very simplistic but it certainly fits.... that much of the Jewish population are Liberal in America makes it even more complicated.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Heres my view...If your in public, a public figure or a public worker...and you make derogatory racial or Anti Semetic comments you need to be held accountable for them...
    Im not a religious guy but I WISH the same applied to those that make more vicious comments about Christianity...its seems thats never a problem to anyone...and you can denigrate christians at will.....

    Re: LAUSD Teacher Fired for Anti-Semitic Comment on Camera

    You know - I think what has become a problem is that not everyone uses the term 'jew' or 'jewish' the same.

    I was surprised to find out -when I was a teen - that being "jewish" wasn't necessarily a religious thing but an ethnicity (or race? - I still don't fully grasp it) as well.

    Sometimes I've read things and it's perfectly clear that "jew" references are regarding religion - only. Just like "Catholic" and "Protestant" . . . and at other times it's referring to race but not always.

    I think some people fail to clarify WHAT they're referring to - and a disapproval of the jewish faith might be taken as outright racism altogether when that's not necessarily how the individual feels.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Who are the individuals you're talking about, the leaders of OWS?
    I may be wrong.

    It seems that people are not realizing that there are going to be crazies in every group. You had some racists at the Tea Party events and you have crack-induced f-tards at OWS. However, for both the Tea Party and OWS, these nutjobs are in the minority. Both movements have legitimate greviances.
