Yeah, people seem to be really angry at the Jews.
A subway poster advertising Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s new book has been defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti reading, “Die, Jew Bitch!” complete with a swastika.
The poster was vandalized at the Nassau Avenue subway stop on the G line in Brooklyn, New York and discovered on Tuesday. A passenger tweeted an image of the poster, but has since made her account private.
The New York Police Department (NYPD) said it was investigating the incident and studying surveillance video from the station to find the offender.
The police are looking into it.
There is no room for hate in NYC

The transit authority apologized.
Following up with an update: that offensive imagery was reported yesterday, and our crews removed it immediately after NYPD had collected evidence for its investigation. Again, we regret that our customers were exposed to this hate speech, and thank you for notifying us. ^JLP pic.twitter.com/KlZkERBD6k

And the mayor has spoken out about it.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg represents the very best of our city.
We’ll find whoever is responsible for this anti-Semitic trash and ensure they face consequences for trying to spread hate in New York City. If you have any information on this despicable act, please contact the NYPD. https://t.co/qff5nV7OE1

Because of course, vandalism with a sharpie is a very, very serious crime.
If I were the Jews and saw how angry people were, I would try to at least temporarily stop hurting so many people in such an aggressive and hateful manner.
But that’s not how the Jews roll.
To the Jew, angry goyim means it’s time to get even more brutal with their systematic abuse.
