Antisemitism is still around, and I should hope that conservative reporters understand this, because if they really, truly want to win over the Jewish vote in the next elections, they'll consider that their refusal to address these issues can cause their efforts to backfire. From the Naples Daily News:
Ten North Naples Middle School students were suspended last week after district officials said they participated in “kick a Jew day.”

District Spokesman Joe Landon said a student told the dean of students at dismissal on Thursday that she was kicked because it was “kick a Jew day.” [...]

The district determined that 10 students should be punished. The students received a one day, in-school suspension, which was served today. The parents of the 10 students were also called and conferences with the parents followed the phone calls, according to Landon.[...]

Landon said until further notice, the school will focus the first 20 minutes of each day on character traits, beginning with respect and kindness. Homeroom teachers will speak with the students about these traits and will focus on bullying prevention, he said. Videos on the topic will be sought out and used as part of the training, he said.
What's pathetic here is that the suspensions were just one day, and "in-school". Clearly, they are not interested in serious disciplinary action against them. And whatever traits they're thinking of "teaching", it's doubtlessly just multi-culti nonsense that doesn't help any. Even a Japanese school would provide better disciplinary action than this.

And I should hope that any and all conservatives who say they disapprove of such obnoxious acts are going to put this into focus. Like I said, if they're negligent in providing their own response, the Jewish community members whose vote they seek could think they're bluffing.

More from R.S McCain.
