Anti-Semetic Thread in SS/FG - Shut it down now!
Apparently, it's a less-than serious take on the presidential candidates, poking fun at most of them by renaming them. While some of the names may seem benign, one in particular is not funny at all, but is rather insulting and dangerous.
Rudy Guliani is renamed as "Jewliani". There is no tounge-in-cheek humor about this. The name plays on the blatant anti-semetic notions of "Jews controling everything" and "Playing to the Jews' interests". I do not need to say much more other than this thread includes a hateful incitement against Jews and those friendly and supportive to them. It is threatening, it is insulting, it adds no value to the SS/FG community, and it has no place on Bike Forums.
This thread needs to be removed immediately and the OP reprimanded. It adds nothing positive and everything dangerously detrimental to the cycling community at large.
