Thank you, Netflix for standing in solidarity with the Jewish community against the hate being leveled at us.
It is important for all streaming services and mainstream television and film studios to speak up against hate. I have seen it done for so many other communities which have been targeted by hate over the past few years. For those who are criticizing Netflix, I kindly say, FUCK OFF.
The increase in AntiSemitism, hate crimes, violence, and anti-Zionism is at the highest levels in nearly one hundred years. It’s hit levels which match the pogroms which began before the Nazi regime. Certain people are calling for Jewish blood in the streets; death threats are a constant. If you have ignored these reports or live in a bubble, then you are living with a sense a privilege my communities cannot afford.
I represent the Jewish, Asian, and Latino communities simply by existing, and more so because I use my voice when these communities are attacked in any way, shape, or form. I appreciate receiving support from a company like Netflix, which I have personally supported for the past five years.
For those who are demanding they support different issues, I want to speak up and say; They already have. They have not picked and chosen. They have made many statements against hate and then increased programming for that community. No other streaming service has done this.
If this post bothers you, don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.
