Anti-Semitism is alive and well in the United States of America

I first heard of Ben Shapiro when he was a teenager writing pieces on Townhall.com and Jewish World Review during the second intifada - long before he became a 'syndicated columnist' or editor in chief of anything. I used to carry his pieces on my "The Matzav" mailing list (2000-04). So when I saw Ben post on Sunday morning (Israel time) that his wife had given birth to a baby on the Sabbath, I tweeted a Mazal Tov. Unfortunately, other people had other things to say....

There's much more here, including one from someone I hadn't realized was an anti-Semite. Shame on them all.

Part of this is indeed anti-Semitism, but IMHO, a huge part is fueled by "social media" technology. The children among us (whatever their age) can inflate their egos by behaving scandalously.

We have built a closet where the worst part of us can breed and grow with impunity. We worship hi-tech without looking beyond it, to implications. This one has the potential for eating our Civilization alive, from the gut. It's not just a tool for doing things. It's a means for achieving unbounded gratification.

De Tocqueville was right. America will destroy its own self (though not for the reasons he thought.)
