Antisemitism, alive and well in Florida.

by Trulytracy on February 10, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The short version is that a friend of some friends went on an antisemitic rant. He said something about liking Obama because he doesn't "bend over for the Jews". (I know it's weird but that's what he said.) He also said that the Jews are responsible for 9-11. There's more but you get the idea. The worst part of this is that I was stuck on a boat when this happened. I couldn't just walk away and leave. I was stuck.
