New York Times: New York City Is Briefly Labeled ‘Jewtropolis’ on Snapchat and Other Apps

❝ I thought we were beyond this…

The Reformation, the Holocaust, they were supposed to be one time things, we were supposed to now be more civilized. But to quote Talking Heads, it’s the same as it ever was…


❝ This is the story of our time, how things went horribly wrong. Blame income inequality, blame globalization, blame the starving of schools, blame the lack of opportunity for those who are not legacies.

But no, it’s easier to blame the Jews.

Same as it ever was.

    Frankly the choice to use a cartoon to illustrate this story seems unfortunate. Meanwhile: “Nazis Are Just Like You and Me, Except They’re Nazis …despite what you may have read in The New York Times.” (The Atlantic 2017) https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2017/11/a-nazi-cooks-pasta/546737/ “This essay was inspired by “A Voice of Hate in America’s Heartland,” published in The New York Times on November 25, 2017. The Times reflected on the shortcomings of the piece after it was met with outrage and ridicule.” (see links).

    I wouldn’t call that a cartoon. If I was religious, I’d say it was the soul of a Nazi – no matter what they look like on the outside. Which would be something more like a Grant Wood Americana portrait.
