Jewish congressional candidate, 25, targeted with anti-Semitic abuse

A young Jewish candidate for Congress in California has been targeted with anti-Semitic abuse in the days before the state’s primary election.

Erin Schrode, 25, who has been featured recently by several news outlets, including JTA, for her underdog candidacy against incumbent Jared Huffman, has been hit with the abuse on social media and cellphone messages, she revealed in a Facebook post late Saturday night.

Personal information such as her phone number and email also were posted online.

Among the messages she has received, Schrode said, are “Everyone knows it’s TIME for America’s first evil retarded teen c— Congress kike!”; “Fire up the oven!” and “All would laugh with glee as they gang raped her and then bashed her bagel eating brains in.”

1. Behind the Aegis

I do not have any knowledge of the candidate. I am willing to speak up for anyone who is targeted by bigots.

4. There is no excuse for that bullshit. This is really sick stuff. Appreciate the heads up BTA

Some folks in that district are pretty right wing.

Dale Mensing, is the republican running in that election. He is a graduate from Bob Jones Academy in 1976, and later attended Bob Jones University for 2 years. From 1979 to 1983, so I would not be surprised in the slightest if some of Mensing's supporters were involved in this.

5. Oh, I like her. She's a fighter who doesn't take any BS!

I love her response to these hateful anti-Semitic assaults.

Writing on Facebook, Schrode said, “I cannot and will not remain silent. I have never been much good at standing idly by in the face of injustice. I am not writing these words to spark an outpouring of sympathy, but rather to call attention to the fact that pointed, blatant hatred is rampant and on the uptick at this moment in history, particularly in the context of a fear-based election cycle. Those who know me can attest to the fact that I have spoken out time and time again when I have NOT been the one targeted. I am a citizen activist through and through – who refuses to give that shrug of inevitability.”

She added: “We must not stand silent in the face of hatred, violence, attacks, bullying, or oppression; we cannot recoil in fear; we cannot lose our sense of human dignity and respect. May we respond with a chorus of positive voices and powerful action. May we rise up and not only preach tolerance, but understanding and love.”




I can't wait to see what the future holds for this woman!

6. $100 says this shit is being organized on 4chan's /pol/ board.

/pol/ is a major haven for RW extremists of every stripe and where a lot of internet harassment campaigns are organized.

7. Absolutely disgusting.

I can't believe what hatred Trump has stirred up in this country. He has made people feel like it's ok to be openly and un-ashamedly racist and hateful toward any minority group.

9. He really has! And sadly, the media has assisted.

Doesn't matter what group is the target, because they will always find another group, then another, then another...

13. Can you imagine how disturbed and disgusting of a mind

 

it would take to actually invest the time to produce an app to spread hatred and filth?

It absolutely boggles my mind.

12. ISIS setting girls on fire because they won't have sex with the militants

 

Albinos in Malawi being abducted and having their bodies chopped into pieces for witchcraft, and this horrible example of hate.

There are some ugly damn people in this world, and it is sad. Those are three stories I've read on here today - Ugh.
