25. I don't want to put you down, because I know your heart is in the right place and I appreciate your
sympathy, but if you were Jewish, you would know that there is no shortage of people who think/say things like this all the time whenever Jews try to 1) defend the memory of the Holocaust from being cheapened in this way or 2) they disagree with a Jew. There are enough people who freak out and bring up Soros, the Rothschilds, Israel etc. whenever a Jewish public figure says something they don't like.

Statements like this are commonplace on the internet if you know where to look, which I do, because I am Jewish and I am always fascinated with certain peoples' obsession with us. As I always say, if you want to see some serious racist and/or anti-Semitic screeds, just find some relevant videos on youtube. I'm sorry you think this is one of the most repulsive things you've ever read, because it really crops up more often than you might imagine.
