Attention! Anti-Semitism, always present though typically under the radar, now is more frequently overt and is appearing in the light of day!
And bringing it back around for those other 97.5% of Americans who are not members of the Jewish faith, recall this statement that's been attributed to pastor Martin Niemoller during WWII (source) and understand the potential global context of the problem of silence and ignorance:
First they came for the communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak out because I was Protestant.
Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out...
Remember that as has been proven throughout time, you can run, but you cannot hide!
