Holocaust 

Hey I just want to share this - it's the most beautiful thing I've seen this month. It's the Australian Jewish Labour Bund's commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising yesterday. For people who don't know, the collective yorzayt (commemoration of death) for the people who died in the Uprising is April 19th, the first day of Passover 1943 and the day the Uprising began.

Holocaust 

Starting during the war and until today, April 19th is a day known by Holocaust survivors and the partisans and resisters who were in Jewish armed resistance movements as khurbntog (Holocaust Day or Catastrophe Day) because of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Israel created Yom Hashoah for its own purposes but people around the world continue to observe and commemorate khurbntog.

uspol, covid19, callous disregard for life 

too many politicians in my country: we have to relax the social distancing even though deaths are rising! think of the economy!!

my brain: anti-flag's "the economy is suffering, let it die" on loop mixed with intermittent wordless screaming

uspol, covid19, celebrity doctors, callous disregard for life 

dr phil literally actually said that the u.s. economy should reopen, despite the many more deaths it would cause, to "prevent anxiety and depression" from social distancing

does he realize that anxiety from isolation is preferable to (and more treatable than) anxiety from thinking you might die or cause a more vulnerable person's death

does he realize that he effectively said "more people should die, or the money will be sad"

One of the most amazing things about this crowdfund, to me, is the ratio of donors to recipients.

About 110 people have requested funds, so it's almost one to one. For just about every person who needs help, someone else has stood up to be the one to offer that help.

We're almost to $16k. Let's take it there!! DONATE: gofundme.com/f/mastodon-commun

if you are in need of financial help and want to receive part of these funds, here's a private two-question form: docs.google.com/forms/d/12zThR

how bad does the democratic nominee have to be before democrats stop supporting them

remember when mike pence expressed his solidarity with victims of tree of life by calling up a Jew for Jesus leader to lead a prayer

winning over the Hebrews by giving them something Jewish to relax them and then suddenly revealing it's actually propaganda to make them accept the guy their ancestors have repeatedly gone to their deaths rejecting while reciting the words of the shema

Antisemitism 

The existence of Ben Shapiro very accessibly explodes the notions that if you can find a Jew who agrees with your bullshit then it's not antisemitic

Antisemitism, Covid 

Incidentally, 2nd to last is not antisemitic, it clearly originates within the Ashkenazi Jewish community

Antisemitism, Covid 

'A search on Twitter for the words “Jewish” and “coronavirus” from March 20th to April 3rd 2020 revealed the existence of ten different types of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that have been associating the COVID19 with the Jewish community.'

Govt: "We need a way to monitor people's movements and issue permits. We also need efficient way to check them. This is to stop the virus, ok?"
Moscow authorities: "Say no more"

Pictured: Looooooong lines of people waiting to get their movement permit checked so they could ride in a subway.

thinking about how broadly and literally applicable these halakhot of oil lamps were for generations and generations across more than a thousand years right up until the widespread adoption of electricity. the practical can become esoteric on a dime #DafYomi #Shabbat44

INSTANCE BLOCK RECOMMENDATION

If you value your safety and wish to keep this place a safe spot for anyone to talk, please block or defederate social.byoblu.com

The mentioned instance is mainly Italian-speaking, but considered its code of conduct follows a very shady definition of "free speech", it nurtures xenophobic, anti-semitic contents (e.g. Kalergi Plan). It doesn't act any censorship, much like with Gab and other "free speech" instances, therefore giving free reign on harassment and targeted mobbing.

People actively speaking and currently joining the instance have widely been reported of promoting homophobic, anti-choice, far-right, conservative, and pseudoscientific content.

Stalin 

Block me if you think Stalin was a cool dude.

The thing is I get why white people are afraid. We're all kinda scared right now.

But as per white people they always react in such a way that exacerbates their situation and doubly so for marginalized groups.

The white American vote has consistently voted against all of the public services we need right now for at least the last 6 decades.

45 is just the latest example. Drugs are absolutely demolishing young white people, but they elect a dude that wants to get rid of the ACA.

Because white
