Rosenbaum, killed amid Kenosha unrest, doesn't come from practicing Jewish family

Joseph Rosenbaum doesn’t come from a practicing Jewish family, but that hasn’t stopped some hate-filled internet trolling from appearing online because of his last name.

Rosenbaum, 36, of Kenosha, was one of two people shot and killed on Tuesday during unrest after the shooting of Jacob Blake. Suspect Kyle Rittenhouse, an Illinois 17-year–old, has been placed under arrest.

Rosenbaum’s extended family is not Jewish, though there may be a mix of German and Jewish heritage in the past, said Sammy Rosenbaum, a cousin.

She said she’d lost touch with her cousin but added that “it’s sad all around that he’s gone ….”

The apparent lack of Jewish practice in the family hasn’t prevented hateful message boards from lighting up with some antisemitic statements about Joseph Rosenbaum. There are also parentheses around “Rosenbaum” in several instances, signifying a Jew.

11. You are correct about them not being strong on details. The War on Facts!

Thanks for the good wishes (and I am happy NOLA was spared), but I am back in ruby-red Oklahoma...almost 10 years now.

3. I Don't Get It

I never have. I don't grasp the willful decision to target Jewish people, at any point in history.
I know some of the reasons, but none of them are even a bit understandable.
How can someone's familial religious background have anything to do with how we view them?
Don't get it.

5. I'm prejudiced, but...

... mostly against willfully ignorant people. (Which describes many Trump supporters, among others.)

As a culture, and in GENERAL, Jewish people are certainly not that way. So I've valued nearly every Jewish person that I ever encountered!

6. "willful decision to target Jewish people"

From my observation it is the fact that they are "the other" the "not like us"" the them vs Us mentality that is gripping this country. What gets me is the line about "rich jews" controlling the country but not about the rich whites... Thats ok...
This thinking goes back century's and I don't believe it's gonna stop. I wish it would stop.

8. I don't either.

What is in a person’s mind and heart is far more important to me than their ethnicity. I read somewhere recently, maybe here, the idea that white evangelicals should think about the fact that God did not create just one type of tree, or just one type of flower, or just one type of animal—or make one more important than the other. Healthy biodiversity says they all work together. God also made many types of humans. Why do they believe that He placed their one type above all others?

7. just proves what the RW/GOP/Trump is at it's core: White Nationalists.

See, the GOP can try to put on their fake convention, where they parade a few Uncle Tom blacks/browns/women etc around, but it aint foolin anyone because all you need to do is look online at RW hangouts and you'll see what they 'really' believe.

10. Republican conventions have more people of color on the stage than among the delegates.

9. If they have hate in their hearts, they'll find someone to hate

It doesn‘t matter who, and it doesn‘t matter why. They can‘t tell you even if you ask.
