Falling into Laps

The Forward provides a brief profile of the most notorious anti-Semitic sign-waver at the Occupy Wall Street protests. Basically, he's a homeless man who long did things like hurl anti-Semitic abuse well before OWS started. So it was easy for him to stand around with his signs in Zuccotti Park. Fortunately, other members of OWS have taken to holding up signs next to him calling him a dick. Since the man has the same right to protest as anyone else, that's really all anyone can do.

I'm sad that the various people noting that it's weird for such an allegedly anti-Semitic movement to be so supportive of Jewish identity (eg in the form of maintaining a sukkah, celebrating Yom Kippur and Simchat Torah, etc.) haven't followed that up with the point you made a while back about the Values Voter summit being held during a Jewish holiday.
