TanakhCast #110: The Snowflake Edition



In this week’s episode: Jeremiah 12-15.  We continue in the book of Jeremiah with a consideration of racist language, feelings and snowflakes.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  I realize that in the process of discussing the toxicity of the “K” word and other racial language, I used the “K” word.  I said it out loud.  Numerous times.

It is obviously a less loaded term to English speakers because it is in Hebrew… but nonetheless, not appropriate.  If its use offended y’all, dear listeners, I apologize.

ICYMI, here’s the hate-crimer from Oregon crying about being caught.

Asking for a friend.

The Anti-Nazi Boycott of 1933 was a boycott of German products by foreign critics of the Nazi Party in response to antisemitism in Nazi Germany following the rise of Adolf Hitler, commencing with his appointment as Chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933. Those in the United Kingdom, United States and other places worldwide who opposed Hitler’s policies, developed the boycott and its accompanying protests to encourage Nazi Germany to end the regime’s often-expressed anti-Jewish attitude.

So is boycott a legitimate means to express opposition …or not?

And embargoes?  Are they legitimate policy… or not?
