first BOTD of the year
The city has become the site of some of the worst and most blatant anti-semetic activity I’ve ever seen.
When a member of the town council tried to include a condemnation of Hamas a bunch of left wing lunatics lectured them about how Hamas was not a terrorist organization and the attacks of Oct 7 were done by Isreal on it’s own people. Most of these pro Hamas speakers where women shockingly despite Hamas not having a very strong record on women’s rights.
Jewish climate change Dan Kalb was disinvited from speaking at UC Berkley because of his pro-Isreal views, even though his speech was going to be about the enviorment and nor about Isreal.
The same university has also been sued by a group of Jewish students who say the University has failed to protect them from anti-semetic attacks.
During Hannukkah a menorah was vandalized and thrown into Lake Merritt, prompting hate crime investigation.
Then recently three baristas were fired from a coffee shop called Farley’s East after a confrontation with a Jewish woman over anti-semetic graffti in the bathroom, where they yelled “Free Palestine” to her.
All in the same city.
