Woke up today to emails and tweets saying I am anti-Semitic.
Which is weird, because I've been publicly & privately fighting against this bigotry for years.
Here's the argument...
Frankly, this is bullshit.
I loathe anti-Semitism.
I hunt neo-Nazis as a hobby.
Hoped my actions & heart were clear.
The only thing new is that I am strong speaking out for the human rights of Palestinians & for BDS.
I'm going to keep standing up for the human rights of Palestinians.
And I'm going to keep hunting down and exposing Neo-Nazis.
And you can love me or hate me - that's your choice - but I will let my actions speak for themselves every single day.
I am not responsible for anything he says or does.
I am also not responsible for other people who may respect or admire him.
If that issue is critical for you, and that's your business, you will have to take that up with them.
If you believe that, it's no different than people thinking those who hate police brutality hate white people.
Defining your oppression for yourself is your privilege.
But if me not rejecting a person who did not reject a person who you say is anti-Semitic makes me anti-Semitic, then we do have a problem.
I don't do it for the love or any accolades - Lord knows it puts me and my whole family in danger every day - I do it because it's the right thing to do and it must be done.
