We proudly stand with the Jewish community on the eve of this high holy day, and all days.

  1. And typical of people who have no knowledge of human nature (our new political class), making a big deal out of something only encourages more.

    Getting support by pissing people off…………………..

  2. Young teens do many things without thought, this was probably one!

  3. Teenage boys have been drawing swastikas for as long as I’ve been alive, and I’m getting on in years.

  4. Yet here we are talking about Critical Race Theory and the Woking of our educational system…completely ignoring the new rise of antisemitism while sowing division between black and white. Ignore it and it will go away right?

    Maybe there should be classes about the rise of Nazi-ism and the Holocaust…nah, let’s teach about which founding fathers owned slaves and why white kids should feel bad about themselves.
