Responding to that post I wrote this morning about continued efforts to demonize Barack Obama, a friend e-mailed that at her son’s elementary school—a top-shelf private school in Los Angeles—some of his friends have said that, if elected, “Obama will kill the Jews.”
“We were horrified!” she wrote. “I don’t remember anyone saying that about Kerry or Gore so I see some ignorance and racism here. We’re upset, not just because we are Democrats supporting Obama but because talk like that is absolutely scary to young children. And the boys saying it are hearing this from their highly educated and very wealthy parents. Unbelievable!
“Even though I believe this outcome of this election will be one to celebrate—I can’t wait for this election to be over!”
