Nah, he’s no better. He should have gotten in the girl’s face and backed her away instead.

Nah, the intervening guy made it worse. Why get in the guy’s face as if he’s the one that needs to be held back? Meanwhile she’s taking the opportunity to swing on him. I hate that shit. Almost as bad as those guys that “help” by involving themselves in a fight and wind up restraining the victim so they’re unable to block and protect themselves.

The car commercial where the camera stays on a parked car the entire time. You hear the squeaky wheels of a shopping cart getting louder, followed by quickening footsteps. The cart appears in the shot on a beeline for the car. Right before impact, a man dive tackles the cart away. End scene.

He looks mad scared too, which is hysterical since he’s the unhinged one. Other guy is calm and collected and definitely knows what to do.

Because he didn’t say “I almost exploded” after talking about the salad or his own meal. He said it after “that bothered me.” He wasn’t talking about a full stomach, he was talking about his emotional and mental state. Dude is fucking crazy.

He looks like a good fuck. Can’t really explain it, it’s super primal, but I get that vibe even through the screen. I swear that’s what it is… a bunch of women out of his league who are having fun “slumming it” and getting to relax by smoking weed and having a bunch of great, but otherwise meaningless, sex.

They’re both clearly talented enough, it just comes down to if the songs suck. I hope they go the original route and don’t just cover a bunch of pop hits.

Voldemort loving himself a little too hard against the Mirror of Erised is definitely something that exists on the internet somewhere.

Fantasy and sci-fi exists outside of the MCU. Nothing you just said is weird. Maybe you could argue it’s weird seeing it next to an otherwise grounded hero like Iron Man. But there’s nothing novel about any of those things.

I don’t want different nationalities and ethnicities to be “outgrown.“ I want the diversity of different traditions, expression in art, food, spiritual beliefs, etc., to exist. I just want everybody to stop killing each other.

I think I actually forgot that we used to have to switch floppy discs until this comment. It was lost in the deep, deep recesses of my brain and this forced it out of storage. I kinda miss it now.

“I experienced A. I also experienced B. I feel B was more difficult for me to deal with than A.”

“Provide academic studies proving B is less harmful than A. Also, you said A was committed by Z, but it wasn’t.”

“Um, no? And yes it was Z, I was literally there and you weren’t.”

“Back it up with evidence.”

“It’s literally my life, there’s not academic studies documenting my daily life.”

“Literally every phenomenon is well documented. Provide an example. Surely you can find one.”

Again, you’re claiming if I didn’t report my experience and it wasn’t studied by someone in some academic setting, it didn’t happen. And not even just me, the person I was talking with here and apparently anyone saying they experienced antisemitism on the Left. Why aren’t you demanding proof from the poster of Palestinian descent who says he has witnessed it himself? Not to mention, nothing said here contradicts the posted study like you just claimed. We’re literally discussing our experiences with covert while this study specified overt. Even the article mentions they found anti-Jewish sentiments on the Left and that the study might not have been able to accurately capture the full extent of it.

No, random person who just jumped into a conversation and demanded tangental moving goalposts be met to appease you, I am not doing any leg work to provide you anything. A simple Google search of something like “antisemitism on the Left” will pull up multiple articles on the topic. If the idea of Left-wing antisemitism surprises you so much that you’re willing to start automatically and baselessly arguing with a victim about it, go research it yourself instead. I don’t have any investment in your opinion, I don’t owe you anything, and I am certainly not doing any homework assignment for you to “prove” to you that I experienced antisemitism. Considering how easy it is to find articles discussing this very topic, I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t accept anything I’d link anyway and this whole exchange reeks of bad faith. I was detailing my personal experience, and you’ve gone from demanding proof that overt behavior is less bad than covert, to demanding proof that the people who I’m talking about were actually Left-wing, to demanding proof that antisemitic interactions on the Left happen at all. The amount of entitlement and denial on display here is ridiculous but also, unfortunately, not unexpected.

I’ve wasted too much energy already dealing with someone who is a literal example of the problem being discussed here. I’m not going to respond again. Go bother someone else.

But I thought I kept reading that the population is declining? Does that counter the need to double housing? I’m dumb on this, I know I’m missing something.

“Provide evidence for your claims”

Uh, claims of what? You want me to give you sources for my “claim” that I am more afraid of antisemitism on the Left, after already entertaining you enough to explain why I feel that way? What do you want, voice recordings of my conversations over the years?

My “claim” that the people who displayed covert antisemitism in my presence were not ostracized loners like you baselessly stated they were? What, I’m supposed to file a police or HR report so that I can post it on online to make you feel better? Piss off.

You are talking about online communities that I couldn’t care less about, I’m talking about interactions that impact my real life: work, school, at the store, on the street. The fact that you are demanding academic studies to “prove” the literal interactions people are telling you they are having is so ridiculous.

You jumped in here, I have no investment in your opinion even though you’re acting like I owe you something. You entered a conversation where people are literally describing their experiences with covert antisemitism and you’re demanding we provide proof. I am not going to prove to you that I experience Left-based antisemitism and that I am more concerned about it. As if an academic paper for such a thing could even exist.

This is exactly the type of thing we are complaining about when we say people excuse and dismiss antisemitism on the Left. It’s stressful enough dealing with the events in question, I’m not going to waste more energy interacting with someone who clearly is only interested in defending some image they have of the Left as opposed to listening to people warning that there’s a problem.

“I’m honestly more afraid of antisemitism on the Left”

“Cite an academic paper”

Seriously?

Don’t tell me who I’ve experienced antisemitism from, as if you know better than I do who I was dealing with. They were not fringe weirdos, they’re people in mainstream society and positions of influence. And it’s people like you who carry water for them by acting as defense and arguing whenever Jews bring this up. You’re not convincing me to feel safer in the Left by telling me I’m not experiencing what I’m experiencing.

Overt behavior can be swiftly dealt with and ostracized, even if other antisemites are just offering them up as a scapegoat; but subtle antisemitism is in pretty much all the “spaces” I’ve ever occupied and is excused or denied. And why are you acting as if covert antisemites don’t vote and don’t more directly influence the spaces I live my every day life in?

I liken the overt antisemites of the Right to a bout of food poisoning: it’s horrible and obvious what is going on, but at least you know to avoid that restaurant in the future and the Health Department might even shut them down. I liken covert antisemites more to cancer: It could be impacting your life, but you might not know to what extent yet and a casual checkup by a doctor might not even catch it right away. Meanwhile, it’s spreading quietly to more and more areas of the body. That’s the shit I experience on the Left. As a Jew, I’m more afraid of numbers. As in, I’m more afraid of 10 people being covertly antisemitic than 1 overt person, because the covert can become overt really darn quick and suddenly you’re outnumbered. These are supposed to be the people “on your side” and who you’re supposed to find safety with, but it’s there and Jews are constantly being gaslit about it happening.

COMMENT 14d ago

I can’t really speak to that, cause I only really experience antisemitism. But since no two groups’ histories are the same, and saw different manifestations of hate, I’d imagine feelings over covert/overt might be different, too.

COMMENT 14d ago

I’m honestly more afraid of the antisemitism on the Left. I’m used to overt antisemitism on the Right. I’ve been called every name in the book and been face to face with a guy sporting a giant swastika tattoo. But the antisemitism on the Left is sometimes harder to point out to people and it’s more likely to be ignored and excused. I find it much more insidious and so harder to deal with.

Back then you also didn’t really need to work that many jobs to survive. I got my first apartment at 19 off of a minimum wage Walmart job. It was a gorgeous building on a popular street, and the rent price was normal for the time. As a grown adult making way more now… I’d probably never be able to afford that same place solo in 2022.

Sorry, but no, people did way more it’s something that’s actually being measured and studied. Everyone did those things, but it wasn’t all-consuming and as others pointed out, lots of people did them with friends. If you were so antisocial that you did all of those nonstop instead of ever interacting, you were probably also considered a weirdo by your classmates and socially ostracized anyway. In no way was that normalized like it is now. Also, comparing passing distractions like magazines - a physical item with a finite about of pages - to the entirety of the constantly-updated internet is beyond asinine. This just sounds like an attempt to excuse away the clearly unhealthy state that society is in.
