“During my time in Congress ...I didn’t once witness another Member target Jewish people like this with the name calling & other personal attacks.” - Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.),

2. And, for those in the back that maybe didn't hear

Characterizing someone accurately independent of their religion or ethnic heritage isn't a slam on that religion or heritage. Spare me the hand-wringing over anti-Semitism, which has been a hallmark of conservative prejudice for centuries.

5. Great response. I hope it is the WaPo comments

I can still see some WaPo articles but I had to cancel my free Bezos subscription (Amazon Prime trial ran out.)

I do wish there was a way to filter/sort these comments. The grey lady allows some filtering with "Reader" and "NYT" picks but when there are thousands there needs to be *a better way*.
