For the unfamiliar, these references are callbacks to myths that have pervaded the post-Holocaust consciousness since the liberation of the concentration camps in the mid s. Legend has it that some Nazis used the fat of murdered prisoners in the production of soap just because they could.
Similarly, the lampshade refers to a myth that Nazi doctors removed the skin of dead Jews and used it to fashion lamp coverings. Neither of these myths have ever been reliably substantiated, but they continue to be lobbed at modern Jews as a tactic for making us feel less human—and more like objects. As a result of these messages, I spent the evening reporting users to Twitter for threats and harassment, and most were at least temporarily suspended.
Distressingly, many of the accounts I reported expressly listed their support for Trump in their Twitter bios. While this experience was horrifying, it was far from unique.
All these moves are rooted in Nazi Germany propaganda: cartoon people with hook noses, bags of money, people drawn with their heads shoved in ovens. The purpose of these images is fairly simple: to unnerve, to demean, to instill fear of mortal danger. New York Observer writer Dana Schwartz experienced similar vitriol over the summer when she dared to criticize a photo tweeted by Trump that she and many others viewed as anti-Semitic.
Kushner replied with a letter of his own, absolving himself of blame and claiming his father-in-law was indeed a friend of the Jews. And just last month, Politico reporter Hadas Gold received a threat so violent that a police report was filed. While I experienced this type of harassment on a smaller scale, I was no less affected.
At first, like Ioffe, my instinct was to deflect and not allow these cruel people to get the better of me. These types of attacks should seem shocking in , but a recent internal investigation at Twitter found that anti-Semitism is rampant on the platform. From August to July , a staggering 2.
Not only is it a tough time to be a Jew online, but as usual, women continue to be a constant target of hate and harassment. In , we saw the proliferation of the Gamergate scandal, in which female gaming journalists were threatened with rape and death by angry men online. From there, the movement grew, with these men attacking any woman or man who publicly defended these women.
