    It's all based on a lie, that the people despised are less than fully human.

    "Not like us", "don't value life", "don't love their kids", etc.

    This is why hate is so appealing to those suffering insecurity and feelings of inadequacy. It's the further lie that no matter what sort of crap you've done, you will always be superior to whichever group of people you hate.

    Frankly, there are other nations and peoples far more maligned and stereotyped, these days lol

    Including Russians too...
    Read that "Can A Person Be Jewish And Not Know It?" thread. At least one poster is way, way, way across the line.

    I can't recall reading any criticism of all 150 million Russians, and you've certainly driven home the point that they are many, many peoples living under one government.

    Hopefully, you don't feel any abuse I hurl at Putin is meant to describe every Russian.

    There is no "line" there. There is only madness and hate.

    Lol @ "Manchurian puppy". He probably grew up to weigh 200 lbs and fight bears.

    One hopes the internet version is reporting the offending post and then placing the poster on ignore, confident the mods will deal with them.

    Tried that didnt work and to be honest? Getting banned for calling out a jew hater isnt a big deal. You are dealing with an america hater and a jew hater.

    Hate, like wrongdoing, can't be ignored. To be confronted by either constantly online is a beat down of all that is right so if we are wise we pick our fights wisely but never turn our backs on it. The knowing that it exists whether it is racism, bigotry, or sexism is all that matters. A society that pretends it doesn't exist is more dangerous so if it shakes us to the core and is undeniable it is good.

    I've always been fascinated when racists quote MLK as if he stood for their racism in their reverse reality. They would never be seen or understood without the hate displaying itself. The biggest job we all have is to not let their hate burn you out. Keep fighting.
    Thanks from PACE and Madeline
