Let me be clear- not all lefties do this, but I'm very scared of the left in many places and their antisemitic rhetoric that is wrapped up in anti-Israel sentiment, just as I'm scared to death of right-wing activists chanting "Jews will not replace us!" in the streets.

It's increasingly scary to be a Jewish person in the world today.

Hey lefties who hate Jews and conflate that hate with Israel to keep the flames of hate fueled.

You and Trump have something in common.



A common question that comes up is what is the distinction between anti-Israel policy feelings and antisemitism.

The answer can be found in how criticism of Israel differ from criticisms of other places, holding Israel up to a different standard than other countries, then we're left with the conclusion that there are ulterior motives.

In this set of birdsite messages, we see examples of how Israel is treated differently to other countries.


Every so often I talk to my old coworkers and I realize what an amazing boss @genehack was.

My mail migration is over... Now it's just cleaning up all those places I have mail configs (phones, etc.)

I plan on moving mail servers this weekend.

I don't think I've been this stressed about a computer thing in decades...

I feel like bookmarks are good but insufficient. What I really want is something more akin to a personal Wayback Machine.

Does anyone know of a tool to do that easily? I could write a web scraping tool easily but I feel like this must already have been done.

In what seems an incredible irony, the California State Board of education is including only one ethnic group in its Ethnic Studies curriculum


Health, Diet 

LOL that should be "Unprocessed a food is".

Or put another way "Whole, unprocessed foods are better than processed foods"

Health, Diet 

Whatever you're doing for your diet- whether it's veganism, carnivore, Mediterranean, paleo, keto, fuhrman, or even cico, let's all agree on one thing:

The more unprocessed a good is, the better it is. Processed foods are fun, but there are many reasons we can show why the less processed what we eat is, the better for us they are.

Health, Canada 

There are times that Canada is really peculiar. I've never taken medicine by licking it off my hand..

uspol, democracy 

This article lays out the ways that voter suppression happens in the US:


It doesn't even bother to mention gerrmandering, or the electorial college, both which have a *huge* impact on voters.

These specific rules have a huge impact on minorities and poor people, and are meant to keep them from voting, especially poor people in urban areas, who predominantly vote for Democrats.

britpol, antisemitism 

I've encountered a great deal of antisemitism from British folks in my life, and listening to BBC I've understood why. There is always a strong anti-Israel and anti-Jewish bias (both individually and separately).

Seeing someone from the BBC admit that they've had this bias and shared false information should say something about where British folks get their information from:

This account is inspired by the awesome @FuckOffGoogle initiative in Berlin.

Is there anybody interested to protest against Google in #Zurich too?

Thousand postcards like this are awaiting to be distributed around the Google campus...
