Anti-Israel protester calls Zionists “scum.” Grandma responds.
There are so many issues here. The protester ought to be free to say whatever he likes, but did he cross a line from free speech to something more provocative meant to incite violence? As for Grandma, I would never counsel anyone to grab a megaphone from the hands of a foaming at the mouth nut bar, it’s not nice and it might be dangerous, but was she provoked? Finally, that line “Go fuck your camels!” might be construed as perhaps prejudiced, perpetuating the image of Arabs as savage desert dwellers who wile away sweltering days by engaging in carnal activity with their flock. That’s just wrong. But whatever… she’s an old lady, she doesn’t give a shit about political correctness. Some asshole got into her face with a megaphone and called her scum. Like I said, this sort of behavior is problematic but… come on, admit it. You kinda admire her pluck, right? Right?
