Since she seems to be active again, I suggest that people who are seriously interested in antisemitism follow the @AntisemitismCow. It's a very good account that, amidst genuine humor, is actually unusually careful about distinguishing between criticism of Israel and antisemitism
The account does not explain the tropes that she identifies. She just moos, mostly. So if you're not a student of the subject, you may need explanation and need to get it elsewhere. But It's exceedingly useful as an aggregator. Only a very few times have I disagreed with a moo.
Also, following the account will give you a sense of the prevalence of certain antisemitic themes across political movements. The account is studiously non-political and moos from all over the place politically.
I am gonna talk a little about the account in a few minutes on @inlieuoffunshow as today's monologue if @Klonick will humor me.…

Listening to Chuck Grassley congratulate himself for the way he and the Republicans treated Merrick Garland while Garland has to sit patiently and listen makes me want to throw things across the room.
I am old enough to remember when @ChuckGrassley held up Merrick Garland's nomination to the DC Circuit for more than a year—in 1995, that is.
A reminder to Republican senators that Garland is (a) smarter than you are and (b) has sat on hundreds of oral arguments interacting with oral advocates who are better than you. He will be low key & polite. He always is. But you're not gonna trip him. You're not that formidable.
