NO ONE HATES JUST MEXICANS:

Chat Room of RNC Live Stream Becomes a Playground for Anti-Semitism (Jesse Bernstein, July 19, 2016, Tablet)

The Republican Party was forced to shut down the chat room on their YouTube stream of the RNC yesterday after a flood of anti-Semitic comments overwhelmed the conversation. Unfortunately, this somehow comes as no surprise given that many Trump supporters are neo-Nazis, inspired by the words by doctors like David Duke. And when bigotry is combined with the Internet...

The idiocy occurred when Linda Lingle, the former governor of Hawaii--and the first woman and the first Jew to serve in that position--was touting the progress that the Republican Party had made with Jewish voters in the last few election cycles (dubious, it appears, but whatever), extolling GOP positions on Israel, and connecting BDS with anti-Semitism. As soon as Lingle began on those themes, well... it's the Internet, so anti-Semitism had to get a quick, faceless word in.

Hopefully the 30% don't have mirrors.
