I was apparently unfriended today by a Jewish friend who took offense to my questioning whether a reported swastika vandalism incident was the work of a Trump voter or just some random idiot trying to get a rise out of people. who can know for sure? a swastika looks the same whether it was painted by a neo-nazi, a teenage gangster, or even a Jew. it's not like it never happened before.

if people know a certain easily-reproduced symbol will trigger a certain group, you can be sure it will be used for that purpose. it's best if you can harden yourself to where it doesn't bother you, but if that's not possible, at least find out who acted before lashing out at everyone for your hurt feelings.
