Response to Agschmid (Original post)

Fri Aug 22, 2014, 04:46 PM

98. Regarding the untenable jury decision reached re NOT hiding a certain post,

One juror voting Leave It offered this lame explanation: "what the poster is saying is that Jews wield guilt. Which while a stereotype, like Catholics wield guilt, isn't really an insulting or offensive one."

Speaking as an Irish-American Catholic who believes no one can be a Christian w/o being Jewish because we're grafted onto THEIR tree, not vice verse, I can assure the juror that quite a few of us take legitimate offense. I don't really care for stereotypes in general, especially not the orgy of Irish bashing that goes on every St. Patrick's day in the U.S. People claim 'it's just a joke' but they reveal throughout the year that they really do believe those things.

Would they indulge in such buffoonery on Juneteenth? Probably so if they thought they could get away with it.
