Millions of anti-Semitic messages on Twitter have spread negative stereotypes and conspiracy theories about Jews across the social media platform, according to a report Monday by the Anti-Defamation League.

ADL national director and CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said the data showed many used Twitter as a “megaphone to harass and intimidate Jews.”

An earlier report from the Jewish civil rights group said anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. last year had reached the highest tally it has counted in more than two decades. That increase appeared to be fueled by emboldened far-right extremists as well as the “divisive state of our national discourse,” Greenblatt said in February.

In the new report, the group estimated that about 3 million Twitter users posted or re-posted at least 4.2 million anti-Semitic tweets in English over a 12-month period ending Jan. 28. The finding is based on a reviewed sample of 55,000 tweets and had a 3 percent margin of error, the report said.

“Of course, 4.2 million tweets is a very small number out of the trillions of tweets sent on the platform each year,” the report said. “But that does not negate the lived experience of Jews who have found Twitter to be a toxic environment.”

Twitter says it has made more than 30 changes to its platform, policies and operations in the past 16 months to protect its users from abuse and hateful images.

“We are an open platform and hold a mirror up to human behaviors, both the good and the bad,” the company said in a statement. “Everyone has a part to play in building a more compassionate and empathetic society, including Twitter.”

Jennifer Grygiel, an assistant professor of communications at Syracuse University, said the ADL’s findings reinforce the need for Twitter and other platforms to hire more “human content moderators” to weed out hateful activity. It’s not enough to rely on artificial intelligence or users to do that job, Grygiel added.

    HOW TO END ANTI-SEMITISM QUICKLY—JUST BE GOOD.

    Dear Judaists: You can end anti-semitism quickly, if you want. All you have to do is be good and honest. Here is how:

    1. Stop killing Palestinians and stealing their land. End apartheid in Palestine.
    2. Stop promoting the alien invasion in USA and UK. If you love aliens, do it in Israel, fine, but don’t force it on others.
    3. Stop bribing politicians and demand they give Israel money as aid and fight wars for it, like in Syria and Iran.
    4. Stop promoting anti-family laws and polices, like feminism and porno.
    5. Stop putting people in prison when they debate the holocaust. If you believe the holocaust really happened, then why are you afraid of a few nuts debating the obvious?

    The Chinese or the Chileans or any other group do not do any of the above. If they did, they would be hated to.

    So the best way to be loved is to love and care about other people. It is that easy. You can’t bully and threaten people into loving and respecting you–you have to earn it.

  2. @Rational

    Brilliant! You’ve just about said it all.

    Reminder that “antisemitism” is a word. And semites are defining what the meaning of that word shall be:

    or else (((they))) are not counting

    anti-Ashkenazic tweets

  5. @Rational

    How about

    ‘If you love aliens, do it in the Caucasus (or Queens) after you go back to where you came from, fine, but don’t force it on others.’

    Asserting that a hostile, alien, specifically Eastern-European invading culture has the right to impose its values on Occupied Palestine is implicitly supporting the invasion, theft, occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

  6. Since so many proponents of permanent warfare, including challenging nuclear powers such as Russia, seem to be more wedded to the Israeli position than representing the US interest, and so many of these proponents are Jews, this is creating a backlash leading to anti-semitic pronouncements.

  7. Svigor says:

    As I wrote in an iSteve thread earlier, my favorite part is the antiantisemitic bot. It was taken down because “nebulous, implied antisemitism high in the ranks of Twitter,” or something. NOT because it was a complete piece of junk that routinely flagged philosemites as antisemites.

  8. Anybody who uses ‘lived experience’ when referring to a social media platform, marks themselves out as a charlatan and huckster.

    And again with the “You’re not allowed to not like us, regardless of what we do” – what is up with that? Why so sensitive?

    Hell, I don’t give a rat’s ass if folks like me or not, irrespective of whether it’s as a result of my actions (or inactions), my atheism, my eye/skin/hair colour, gender, sexuality, overall sexy-as-hell-ness, or ability to do maths when there are foreign squiggles in it.

    I’ve been called an antisemite[1] heaps of times – when I absolutely do not give a flying phuq whether or not someone self-identifies as Jewish. As I’ve said before: Nasty Uncle Dolfie and Ovadia Yosef[2] have more in common with each other than I have with either of them: they both think that killing people who disagree with them is perfectly kosher lol.

    Frankly, the term is losing steam as a result of over-use: it’s like a high-school sophomore calling another kid ‘faggot’ or ‘queer’.

    Recently, any criticism of the Zionist occupation of Palestine attracts the antisemite slur. That is rendering it useless as a rhetorical/polemical device – which is a good thing.

    Most of the times I’ve been called an antisemite are as a result of my opposition to laws against holocaust denial (solely on the basis that such laws are a flagrant denial of free expression). I have no desire to deny the unpleasantness of 1940s camp life for internal enemies of the state, although I am quite fond of pointing out that the ‘harrowing first-person narratives‘ of the period almost always turn out to be fraudulent. I reject the Weisel-ian trope that “some things are true even though they didn’t happen“.

    [1] protip: use the non-abbreviated form. That way you don’t capitalise the ‘S’, which in turn de-emphasises it. I’ve actually been called an antisemite for not capitalising the ‘S’, which is funny as hell.

    [2] for those playing at home, Ovadia Yosef was a whackball (who fortunately is now dead) who was fond of tying a box to his head and rocking like a mental patient while muttering Iron Age gibberish. Some people find that sort of thing persuasive, but I think it’s evidence of mental illness. His real name was Abdullah Abdullah (I kid you not). Weird that a Sephard was so verkakte; usually it’s the rabbit-eaters who devolve to that extent.

    While some of those tweets are demented, I’m guessing a whole bunch are just boilerplate criticisms of Israel and Jewish globalist power.

    I noticed that many BDS accounts have been taken off Twitter.

    But even the worst abusers who share ugly tweets have no power. They are not the ones who did Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine. They are not the ones threatening war with Iran.

    So, who’s acting like the new nazis turning the world upside down?

    And who said LET’S NUKE IRAN? Was it some twitter troll… or Adelson who has a stranglehold on the neocons in the GOP?

  11. Mulegino1 says:

    What is called “antisemitism” is usually simple “Jew awareness” or, to put it more fashionably, “Jewdar”, i.e., the red flag alert, the immunological reaction to the infestation of a place, nation, culture or society by a critical mass of Jewish influence. In other words, antisemitism is not hatred in the socio-political realm any more than an organism’s aversion to infection is in the biological.

    Almost no one aside from a few misguided or fanatical individuals, hates individual Jews simply because they are Jews. The Jewish collective has engendered and nourished the hatred of common humanity for what its leaders have done and accomplished over the centuries, namely the enslavement and oppression of non-Jews at the hands of Jewish usurers, tax farmers, commissars, politicians or members of the judiciary, and the corruption of their host cultures as a result of the rootless, restless ancestral Talmudic hatred against the natural order, beauty and the Divine Logos. The latter is a pattern that repeats itself wherever Jews gain effective control over popular culture (anti-culture) as they did in Weimar Berlin and here in America.

    But, as Machiavelli once advised, if you can’t be both feared and loved at the same time, it is always better to be feared than loved.

  14. I would bet a large number of these tweets came when IDF was sniping unarmed protesters.
    Or when they are trying to provoke yet another war in the ME and drag us into it.
    Or because they meddle in literally every election in America.
    Or because they are using their media to incite violence against white Americans or police officers.

    In most cases it is probably just Jewish provocatuers and hoaxers making “anti-semetic” tweets in order to shut down free speech or get more taxpayer funding for Jew lobby groups like ADL. Such as in the Michael Kadar case and many others.

    As a fallen-away Jew my experience with Jews in Europe and America suggest that this is not possible for the vast majority of Ashkenazim Jews. It goes against the grain of selfishness, mean-spiritedness and avarice cultivated for centuries, especially in the shtetl culture of Eastern Europe. Some Jews overcame and joined the race of decent men.(Viktor Frankl: “There are only two races of men, the decent men and the indecent men.”) I talk with them at events at the Ethical Society. As far as Israel is concerned–the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Introduction to the Israel Lobby

    http://ifamericaknew.org/us_ints/introlobby.html

    The Israel lobby is one of the most powerful and pervasive special interest groups in the United States. It consists of a multitude of powerful institutions and individuals that work to influence Congress, the president, academia, the media, religious institutions, and American public opinion on behalf of Israel……

    • Anti-Defamation League (ADL): The ADL bills itself as a civil rights institution devoted to stamping out anti-Semitism. But in practice, it regularly works to promote Israeli interests and attacks virtually any prominent person who criticized Israel and labels them “anti-Semitic.” It has also been involved in a large spying operation against American citizens who opposed the policies of Israel and the Apartheid regime in South Africa. It is an architect of “hate crimes legislation” that may effectively criminalize criticism of Israeli policies. The ADL is a member of the CoP with revenues of around $60 million and net assets of over $115 million. Abe Foxman, its national director, makes $688,280 per year.

    Jews have a long history and it is overwhelmingly having lived through slavery, poverty, obscurity and persecutions. In Europe a few ambitious individuals arose in the 18th century, more in the nineteenth century, but the majority were still very poor. Only in the 20th century did Jews advance significantly, and especially in the US. The current time is the all time pinnacle for Jews. Their population shrinks because they don’t have children. The majority in Europe and North America marry outside of their Jewish heritage. In a few generations they will again be obscure. If they have diabolical designs, and I think that is overstated, they won’t accomplish much because they are fading. Greeks were once the most amazing people on earth. What happened to the Greeks?

I reject the Weisel-ian trope that “some things are true even though they didn’t happen“.

    IME, the second half of the first sentence is very true, and especially salient. My “holocaust denial” (TM) is more Devil’s Advocate than Dearly Held; at bottom I’m agnostic on the topic, owing to not knowing much about the topic and not caring enough to know much more. I just like to tweak big kosher noses on the subject for several reasons – most prominent of which is my dislike of the Jewish war on free speech that you mentioned.

    That said, there has been a Hell of a lot of flat-out bullshit spewed by professional, semi-professional, and amateur Jewish activists under the banner of “eye witness testimony.” I’m talking about really obvious bullshit, people who are obviously feeding their audiences a pile of crap. Usually in the form of retroactive omniscience; things that are now “common knowledge” in Jewish culture because Jews find them convenient to believe, but would have been impossible for them to know at the time in question, even if they weren’t of dubious origin in the present. My advice is to always question and critique these narratives – ask yourself how the storyteller could know (or have known) what he claims to know; it’s really illuminating to see how much bullshit the average Jewish storyteller is willing to weave into a narrative for the goyim. I’m not just talking about the pros here, either. I’m talking about Grandma Kosher, who gets invited to the local high school to wag fingers at the goyish children.

    Basically the vast majority of these Holocaustianity laypeople are telling porky pies. They lie about what they knew, what they could have known, what they know now, etc. They probably believe in these tall tales themselves, but that’s no excuse.

    Unfortunately there are some jurisdictions where playing Devil’s Advocate will get you hauled in an questioned by some power-hungry retard who couldn’t get C’s in high school. The closest I can get in my jurisdiction is to point out all the riveting (or harrowing) first person accounts – but in other jurisdictions even that will get you in “trub”.

    Below I’ve highlighted the relevant excerpt of an October 6 2008 blog-post of mine, that objected a bit too stridently to the imprisonment of a guy in Australia. The Frog plodders discovered it a year later while I was visiting France, and it got me sent to a French concentration camp[1] (and flown back to Straya free of charge):

    The imprisonment of this Toben fellow for challenging politically-mandated facts, should serve as a reminder to everybody that the “law” is nothing more than the codification of the opinions of a bunch of corrupt politicians, backed up by the threat of violent force (the state-sanctioned armed goons who get all twitchy if their families are threatened, but whose job is to rip families apart on some politician’s say-so – usually for something that involves no harm to anybody). And let’s ignore the historical irony… Moses leads a campaign of pillage and genocide from Egypt all the way to the Levant, and thirty centuries later folks who think of his story as their cultural foundation myth, are cryng foul about mass killings.

    As I’ve said many times, I have no idea whether or not the Kraut government (another pack of politicians) had a policy of systematic annihilation of some or other set of whackballs who believed in a 3000-year old fairy tale of genocide, ethnic cleansing and rapine (and whose political leadership had declared war on Germany in 1933).

    For the sake of argument, let’s say it actually did happen.

    Well, apart from the bits that have been shown to be bullshit, like the ‘riveting first person account’ of Jacob Wilkomerski… and the ‘I was raised by wolves’ of the latest fraud, and the ‘soap from human fat’ rubbish, and the ‘electrified floor that completely evaporated a thousand people at a time’ fiction, and the people who apparently survived being gassed six times, and the ethnically-coloured smoke from crematorium chimneys.

    We can’t be expected to believe those – and it’s hard to imagine that there could be legal sanctions for pointing out that they are bullshit. We will likewise overlook the photos that were retouched to add smoke, and we will forget about the absolutely scary fuel requirements to cremate all the evidence. We will accept that the Germans chose the most inefficient means of annihilation imaginable (so ‘German efficiency’ goes in the bin as a myth, alongside ‘US military dominance’ and ‘French culinary supremacy’).

    Now think about this: questioning any of those things would currently be illegal under French, German, British, Australian law, had they not already been exposed as fabrications. What does that mean for other parts of the narrative that have yet to be properly investigated?

    But let’s say that everything that has not yet been shown to be bullshit, did in fact happen.

    So what? It proves that a government that gained power through a perfectly normal democratic process, can and will do heinous things to self-declared internal enemies. Few people recall that nasty old Adolf rose to power by forming a coalition with another party after an election. People forget that every action of the German government was legal under German law at the time (this is now the ‘Bush/Ashcroft/Rumsfeld,/Kissinger/Cheney defence’).

    So politicians routinely kill people, and try to provide themselves with legal cover to do so – where’s the surprise?

    And when politicians kill people they are too gutless to actually get their hands dirty, so they use goon squads. Again – where’s the news?

    Here’s a tip: if the government of a country is led by a dude who wrote a book declaring his distrust for members of your sect, don’t declare war on his country. You might think it will feel good at the time – you’ll feel smart, and you’ll think it makes him look like an idiot. Think again – life isn’t an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where you get away with ‘zingers’ and everybody just moves on to the next scene.

    You’ve got two choices: have him knocked off, or shut up and keep your head down. Being a smartass is not a good long term solution.

    But i digress…

    Without people like this Toben fellow, frauds like Wilkomerski and others would still be peddling their bullshit fabrications. They would have political cover for their bullshit, and would benefit from the politically-orchestrated oppression of anybody who is not prepared to blindly accept their word for it. Again, not a viable long term solution. You would think that the political classes would have learned something from the Vatican’s requirement to apologise to Galileo – not to mention the impending suit requiring the return of Templar assets seized by Rome under false pretences in 1307… that’s a suit worth almost as much as the US bank bailout.

    [1] I prefer the term ‘concentration camp‘ instead of ‘detention centre’ because I found that while I was in the camp, I had few distractions and could concentrate on stuff.

    It’d odd that I was able to concentrate, because I distinctly recall the guards making me fight a bear every day (and twice on Sundays) – which was exhausting.

    Plus, they took $100 million in art out of my luggage (I am certain it was in there when I left the house: it was some of world’s rarest Old Masters, including the only known Titian that was done in crayon on cardboard).

    Some things are true even though they didn’t happen, you see.

    An interesting question is “How come it’s almost invariably the Ashkenazi who wear out the patience of the host nation?

    Of the dozens of expulsions of Jews from European countries over the last 1500 years, there’s only one I can think of that affected Sephardim - immediately after the coronation of Ferdinand and Isabella.

    During the Islamic occupation of Spain, the local Jewish population (those who didn’t convert) were an important part of the administrative structure: they only got kicked out once Christianity got back in charge and it had nothing to do with their behaviour itself.

    The Mizrahim lived alongside their Muslim and Christian kin throughout what we now call the Middle East, for a dozen centuries without anything going awry … until the Ashkenazim showed up in the late 19th century and made the entire neighbourhood unpleasant. (Yes, I know that Muhammad evicted two tribes that conspired against him, but even the Red Sea Pedestrians don’t refer to that as an antisemitic expulsion).

    Good point- the Ashkenazim appear to be at the very center of so called “antisemitism”- ironically though, since they are, for the most part, not even Semites in any appreciable sense. The other communities you mention- particularly the Mizrahim- appear to blend in and harmonize far better with their host cultures unlike the Ashkenazim, who stick out like sore thumbs in theirs. The only ethnic analogy I can think of with respect to the Ashkenazim is the Gypsies. What the Gypsies do to any locale they inhabit in a physical sense- litter, cheat, steal, defraud, and contaminate, the Ashkenazim tend to ape on a far greater scale with respect to their own host cultures and societies.

    Popular “culture” in the west is by and large an Ashkenazi project- the ugliness and moral corruption of Hollywood and popular entertainment is a case in point.

    Actually the expulsion of the jews from Spain did have to do with their “behavior”. Remember that the Reconquista was delayed by close to a century because the jews fought alongside the moors against the christians. They were also highly resented for their corruption.

    As for “living alongside” lets remember that when Mohammed declared that people had the right to defend themselves (sort of “dont’t tread on me”), this was in the immediate aftermath of what may be history’s biggest genocide (in terms of a percentage of world population).

    The Massacre of Mamilla Pool near Jerusalem in 614 AD is one of those events about which every critic of the jews needs to know as it provides a brutal blow to the jewish claims of eternal historical victim-hood and oppression by Christians. I have previously commented on it by proxy in regard to Antiochus of Palestine’s comments on the jews and the fall of Jerusalem in 614 AD. (1)

    To summarize: the events at Mamilla Pool involve the deliberate genocide of the unarmed and completely innocent Christian population of Jerusalem by jews…..

    Strategius estimated the victims of the holocaust at 66,000.

    In plain prose, the Jews ransomed the Christians from the hands of the Persian soldiers for good money to slaughter them at Mamilla Pool, ‘and it ran with blood’. Jews massacred between 60,000 and 90,000 Palestinian Christians in Jerusalem alone, almost 1.5 million in today’s values (the total earth’s population was according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica about 300 million, twenty times smaller than today). A few days later, the Persian military understood the magnitude of the massacre and stopped the Jews.

    @Jack Tiscione

    The 6 million figure is a symbolic figure invoked for the purely Talmudic cause of financially extorting and guilt shaming the gullible among the goyim. It has no basis in reality. In all likelihood, the numbers of Jews executed by the Germans (mostly all on the Eastern Front in anti-partisan actions) is most likely in the tens to hundred thousand range.

    There were no homicidal mass gassings of Jews anywhere in the German camp system, nor was there a plan to murder all of the Jews of Europe. The vast majority of deaths in the camps were caused by Typhus epidemics and, in the final days of the war, starvation, disease and Allied bombing. Look at those propaganda photos of dead bodies from the Nordhausen concentration camp. Every single one of them was the victim of the USAAF mistaking the camp for the town of Nordhausen, yet they were presented as victims of the “evil German Nazis.”

    The pseudo-religious legend of the “Holocaust” is a convenient narrative which serves multiple political and financial purposes: it justifies the brutal expropriation of Palestine, the financial extortion of the taxpayers of many European nations via reparations payments to international Jewry, and it props up the myth of the “Good War” allegedly fought to “liberate Europe” and by extension- the NATO vassalage of most EU states.

    Hay hay hay!! Stop there buddy! Don’t ya know for chrissake, Truth is highly anti-semetic! Didn’t ya schoolteacher taught that to ya in high school? Perhaps you were dozing off!!

    Worry not. With compulsive holocaust “education”, your “gifted” children will never have to worry about that!

    In addition to logistical difficulties that make the official storyline implausible, there’s the simple fact that there exists no physical or forensic evidence for the massive geological upheaval that would have had to accompany the alleged disinterment of millions of bodies, not to mention the necessary requisition of vast amounts of fuel/wood to cremate these bodies (never mind that the claimed means, open air pyres on rail tracks, are absurd). The Holocaust is the only crime in history for which lack of evidence is taken as evidence (and if you doubt that you can be jailed in many “liberal” countries).

    Excellent advice and points.

    But alas….they aren’t going to change.
    Because….they don’t want to.

    about 3 million Twitter users posted

    3 million isn’t bad…but we need to up the numbers ….add another 2 million and it comes close to outnumbering the Jews….another 3 million and we exceed the Christian Zionist.

    Carrots haven’t worked with the Jews…they just demand more carrots. Time for sticks.

    Since I doubt anyone really wants to round up the Jews and kill them the only alternative is to marginalize and intimidate them into behaving like humans.

    Be nice if we could also see 3 million twitters calling for all treasonous congressperps to step down.

    Carry on.

    I haven’t personally met any anti-Semites but I occasionally run into an anti-Catholic nutter like you.

    An earlier report from the Jewish civil rights group said anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. last year had reached the highest tally it has counted in more than two decades

    How many of those tweets were from that Israeli teen who sent out thousands of anti-Semitic tweets and threats to Jewish CC across the world?

    Not only did that Israeli teen have highly sophisticated computer equipment to allow him to mask his location, he had over one million in Bit coins at his disposal, which means someone was backing him to send those tweets so Jews could cry anti-Semites everywhere.

    Then there are the Jews who spray Swastikas on public locations so the ADL can again scream anti-Semites.

    The world is catching on to these tricks and that has the ADL more scared than someone actually being anti-Semitic.

    And what constitutes an “anti-Semitic incident” anyway? If I’m overheard saying that Jews control the US media, will that be reported and documented by the ADL?

    This film, made by an Israeli btw, is hilarious expose of the pathetic nuttiness of the ADL. But not so funny that these thought-police are now passing laws with fines and jail time for supporting BDS. Criticize Israel? Denounce Zionism? I’m sure the ADL would like to march us off to FEMA camps.

    Anti-Semitism sure seems to follow Jews around where ever they go. They go to a place where none exists and in a short period of time, the place is full of it.
