19. I doubt Hillary is turning away the young people. Her comment didn't come out of the blue.

It was a response to the actual youth displaying actual ignorance of antisemitism. This is a bad thing.

It is extremely unlikely that excusing this bad thing, or ignoring it, will lead to increased voter activity among this demographic group. They are adults, and they have many opportunities to inform themselves and each other about antisemitism. If they don't take advantage of these opportunities, they have made a decision to remain uninformed.

Some things are not to be tolerated. Just as we don't want racists youth to be associated with the Democratic Party, we don't want any association with antisemites either.

And everyone knows that she's right. 2naSalit Feb 2024 #1
