High school plastered with swastikas after Holocaust survivor visit

(CNN) ó Flyers with Nazi swastikas were posted at a California school just days after a Holocaust survivor shared her firsthand horrors with students who had posted anti-Semitic photographs during a party.

Ten flyers were discovered at Newport Harbor High School on Sunday morning. Police were called and the flyers were removed. While posting the flyers is not a crime, Newport Beach police are investigating.

School principal Sean Boulton said in a statement: "Again we condemn all acts of anti-Semitism and hate in all their forms. We will continue to be vigilant with our stance, and the care of our students and staff."

But one senior at the school, Max Drakeford, called the latest episode "super disheartening -- a step backward."

1. Deplorables

Seems like someone warned us about these deplorables recently.

2. I blame the GOPs and their fucked up leader for the rise

of hatred.

Yesterday a Holocaust survivor came to my daughter's middle school and spoke. He was shown respect and compassion by the students.

3. There's 300+ million people in this country. Hate will always exist. Quit giving these idiots media.

There are arguments that these incidents need to be publicized, and to some extent I agree. But another part of me says couldn't you theoretically be publishing stories like this every day? In a country of 300+ million people, there are always going to be bigots, always going to be deplorables. If you published an article every time a fraternity member said the n-word, you'd be publishing that article every day. If you published an article every time one of those 300-plus million people draw a swastika, you'd be publishing that article every day.

Handwringing over every episode of hate is to spend your life handwringing. We need to stop giving these people attention, IMO.

6. Not at all shocking.

There is so much hate, especially against Jews, but there is also those who want to hide that hate or pretend it doesn't exist. Countdown to another Tree of Life incident.

7. No coincidence that Newport Beach is also at the center of the college admissions scandal.

I would bet that some of these parents also took part in that.


Newport Beach and Laguna Beach connections abound in college admissions scandal

https://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-pilot/news/tn-dpt-me-newport-college-scandal-20190312-story.html


Federal prosecutors on Tuesday accused a Newport Beach college admissions company of being at the center of a wide-reaching scheme to get the children of the rich and famous into elite universities through bribery and cheating.

Among those embroiled in the scandal are current Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and Fountain Valley residents, as well as a famous actress and her fashion designer husband who used to live in Laguna.

Need to be held to account. Iím sure they know who did this.
