Stars of David spray painted on two doors on Shawmut Avenue in the South End

Stars of David on Shawmut Avenue doors

From 311 this morning comes two reports of yellow Stars of David being spraypainted on front doors of residences on Shawmut Avenue between West Newton and West Concord streets.

I don't think there are non-nefarious reasons to spray stars of David...

The Nazi's painted those symbols on Jewish homes and businesses during Kristolnaught , the night the Nazi vandalize and destroyed torched the German Jewish community.

It seems pretty nefarious to me. Vandalism on the part of an ignorant, vicious person who has no sense of history.

We now have leaders that encourage and enable Americans to show the worst of their true selves. Ain’t nobody among us in 2020 who hasn’t had the unhappy surprise of learning that a relative or colleague or Facebook friend is no longer ashamed of their ugly bigotry.

Thanks to Trump, we have met the frightened, hate-filled, ignorant enemy, and he is us.

he is us.

More apt description would be "he is everyone else." Nobody appreciates that they themselves are part of the problem. People on the right hate the left. People on the left hate the right. Big mess.

does not equal hate, much as right-wing racists, misogynists, queer-phobes, religious zealots and so on would like you to think so. Hating Jews and hating anti-Semitism are not remotely two sides of the same coin. Trying to both-sides hatred in this way is repugnant.

When I say "us", I mean the nearly half of the country that is either actively supporting the kind of hatred that Trump enables and encourages, or are willing to meekly look the other way because he gave them goodies like tax cuts.

It's not "all of us". But it is enough of us to make me realize with sorrow that America is not the country I once thought it was.

You got ‘em all. Congrats. I wonder if that’s from reciting them so many times while howling at the moon, or do you keep a trusty list for when you’re about to post here?

of right-wingers who see no problem with what’s going on. No one expects you to grasp the irony of accusing others of having their head in a dark place.

Thanks for the help.

Left wing good, right wing bad. Thanks for the brilliant analysis. Always on point per usual.

What are you going to do for 5 more years? You going to make it, you think?

Just asking for clarification on a few questions. Your concern is appreciated though.

Some jackass in Boston spray paints graffiti on a doorway, and that triggers a diatribe against Trump who is arguably the most pro-Jewish President in US history, at least since Truman?

The most logical explanation for that reaction is hatred for Trump.

You don’t appear bright enough not to equate hate with opposition to bigotry, or you have self-serving reasons for pretending not to understand.

Regardless, I appreciate your help proving my point.

How you’re still blaming Trump for everything. Keep up with the therapy and meds... the next 5 years aren’t going to be easy, but with the proper regimen you might get away unscathed.

Ever wondered if behind your back, friends consider you sad and ridiculous? I mean, that’s the consensus on uHub, but it’s something to mull over at home.

People (regular people) don’t really care about political differences as much as Uhubbers. We talk about our views, bust each others’ chops, it’s not really a big deal.

You and the other chicken littles here can’t help but cry at every turn. It’s kind of sad, really.

...that you're addicted to reading and commenting.

Must be nice to be a member of a population that's unaffected by politics.

When’s the last time I posted here? You’re confusing me with someone else (or just generally confused).

as reflecting mere "political differences" reveals a lot about you.

The sky isn't falling. But the rule of law and Constitutional barriers against authoritarianism and white supremacism are eroding bit by bit, a little every day.

President "Doesn't Respect the Separation of Powers" is at it again today, continuing his ongoing attack on the independence of the judiciary by trying to interfere with the Roger Stone verdict.

Again, I don't really believe you're oblivious to all this: you just purposefully have your head in a deep, dark place because you like the climate up there.

There are morons who do this stuff for no reason, or because they find humor in it (not really sure why).

When we were kids, morons spray painted swastikas all over several garages in our neighborhood, wrote “Hitler was my father” and other really dumb shit one Halloween.... Was that Trump too? There are idiots everywhere.... it’s obviously not cool, nor is everything some idiots do attributable to this notion that Trump is the devil.

oblivious, or is pretending nothing's going on -- like the dramatic rise in hate crimes against marginalized segments of American society since Trump's election -- easy because you never directly have to suffer such things?

(Of course, you have nothing to say about Trump taking a large dump on the rule of law and Constitutional guardrails. More obliviousness.)

Either way, cool story about your youth, bro.

Yes, there has probably been a rise in hate crimes by Jack-asses who feel emboldened. And there has been a meteoric rise in extreme violence by unhinged lefties who are feeling... well, I don’t know what they’re feeling other than extreme sorrow that their candidate lost... It’s been truly amazing.

The few times we discussed this, you only mention assholes on the right (who I am not aligned with and most Trump supporters are not either) and have never once acknowledged the dramatic increase in random violence by those who just don’t like Trump, feel “Russia” caused his election, or they’re “fighting for the common man” or some other ridiculous sentiment.

Do you honestly not see it or do you think it’s justified because “orange man bad?”

The story wasn’t that cool, just mentioned it to illustrate that there are hateful idiots among us and there always have been, regardless who is in office.

the mountains of evidence and analysis by the FBI, SPLC and ADL that show the vast majority of the post-Trump-election surge in extremist hate crimes and terrorist acts are right-wing.

Let me guess: now you'll dismiss those as "fake news", just like you'd say "Fox and CNN and CNBC are equally bad".

You're no centrist: you're the kind of rational-discussion-derailing, waters-muddying nihilist that Putin would be happy to pay by the post. And you're still mute on Trump's push toward authoritarianism. Wonder why?

Come to think of it, you sound an awful lot like another sneering douche of a wingnut poster who fled or was booted here a while back -- what was his name? You're that guy with a different handle but the same bad-faith arguments and thinly-veiled bigotry.

It dawns on my now why most uHubbers ignore or mock you as too dumb to live. Go play in traffic, troll.

Some things never change. Your commentary is truly beautiful, per usual. And now we are back to name calling and death. I’m out of adjectives to describe you. I really do feel bad.

Good luck with that 2020 candidate of yours, whoever that may be.
